In this post, I discuss painting my 28mm Living Dead Miniatures. I go from Gesso Primer all the way up to the finished product. For those interested, I list all the colours I chose and the painting process I followed. link

They do look good. I noticed a couple ideas I may steal for my own painting.
As to the figures, the sculpting is good. The clothing in the photos looks to be deteriorated enough (being buried is hard on clothes) that they could be used as draugr for Vikings about 300 years earlier. I'll have to watch for these to come out.

Thanks for bringing these to my attention!

Nice. Simple but effective. The one criticism I'll offer is the minis all have belts of some sort. A bit of rope, a leather strap, something helping to hold clothing in place. I wouldn't mind seeing a bit of color on the belting. Your painting process has the area well defined, but I think a smidgen of another color would break up the clothing in a good way.

Absolutely fair comment mmessenger. I was trying to get these done quickly as I have a pretty big backlog of models that I want to get through.

Hey Grelber. These models are already available if you are interested in them. You can find them here… link
