I offer up another painted poxwalker this week in my slow, grinding way that sort of mirrors the Death Guard itself: I take forever to get a model/unit done but just when you thought it would never get done it is. + This guy is the companion to last week’s Beach Boy Poxwalker.
I went with the tried and true Emerald Pox, though for the final pustule drybrush I decided upon a more muted Skarsnik Green instead of the usual Moot Green this time. I didn’t spare the yellow wash either, and I drybrushed a little yellow on the back of his left leg as well with the idea that perhaps we have a small but developing case of some yellow mold.
If you look closely, it does have the coveted Mark of Ann!
This zombie firmly cements my having a completed unit for Azazel’s latest painting challenge. I have one more that I’ll probably finish up tonight, along with a cultist, and then I’ll have to wrangle up all of my painted poxwalkers for a group shot for the painting challenge.
+ For some reason the phrase “painted poxwalker” causes that Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers tongue-twister to run over and over again in my head. I hope that doesn’t happen to you too. Oh no, too late!
I recently added another poxwalker to my painted forces. This one is the ninth I’ve posted pictures of so far, but as it turns out my latest offering is my tenth painted one. Seems I forgot to take pictures of the companion to the poxwalker in the baggy pants holding its rifle backwards I completed awhile ago.
Once I retrieve the elusive tenth walker from its home in the game store display case, I’ll post a picture of it and a group shot of the unit.
I’ve got that song Beach Blanket Bingo running through my head now.
This time I wanted to try something a little different, so I went for a look that sort of evokes the idea of someone who has some sand clinging to them because they are/were a zombie at the beach. You know, you’ve been swimming and then played some volleyball. Finally you grab a girl drink and chill under the umbrella and you’ve got sand in all the most embarrassing places? Well, that happens to poxwalkers too.
I used AK brand Corrosion Texture for the effect. I like how it came out, and not surprisingly it isn’t quite as pronounced as the pictures make it appear.
Just Baal Red. No Blood for the Blood God! this time.
This month I hope to make more progress on my poxwalker unit for Azazel’s Junit Challenge. The idea is to complete a group of at least three thematically unified figures for the month of June.
At minimum, going with his guidelines, I’ll declare success if I can complete at least two more walkers for June, which would bring the mob to twelve. In the unlikely event I finish all twenty, I’ll declare it a major Nurgle Victory. Cake, tentacles, and afflictions all around!
