CMON Zombicide Black Plague character miniatures painted

Zombicide Black Plague – Base Game Characters painted up

I’ll admit this now – if you ask me for a game of Zombicide Black Plague and expect me to turn up with my set ‘completely painted’ I’m afraid you will be disappointed. Maybe in 2020.

I’ve a couple of sets of the ‘modern’ Zombicide and of those, one set is about 50% completed – bought 2013/14. I posted some pics in this post from last year.

As I said recently I remain well impressed by the quality of the miniatures that come with CMON games. Whilst some are slightly cartoony (which I don’t mind personally) the Black Plague miniatures would easily double-duty for other 28mm fantasy skirmish games. (Coming soon post – the Monty Python and the Holy Grail characters as the basis for a Frostgrave warband). Indeed, I was pleased to see on a recent visit to the Falkirk Wargames Club that both character and zombie models from Black Plague were being happily used for Frostgrave encounters.

Rambling aside, here are the based-set characters that come with Zombicide Black Plague. As you can probably see, I’ve just kept to the colour scheme from the game artwork so that they tie in with the character cards.

    1. Hi SheRa. Thanks for that.
      3 things to get started…
      1. Decide on what you are in to and want to paint. I don’t mean this in a condescending way but it is very easy to be let loose in the candy shop for the first time and go mad buying all sorts of stuff. Too much maybe (if you are anything like me when buying toys). Result is too intimating a volume to paint and no clear end result. Also…
      2. It’ll help you focus on what paints and colours to buy in the first place. You don’t need them all! And besides it may not work out for you so you won’t have spend a load on paint you’ll not use.
      3. YouTube is your friend. Plenty of demos and tutorials to kick you off. Seeing is the best way to learn here (for obvious reasons). Keep it simple to start and build up.

      Good luck. Interested to know how you get on.

      1. Okay. So, I have two figures bought. My problem now is that the first one I want to paint is really, essentially to be lacking in colour. Muddy. Can you give advice on how to inject colour and depth to what is, in fact, a monotone piece?
