I got this wonderful *mass sarcasm* idea to do a Vampire Counts army themed around Zombies, Zombies, and more Zombies.
The whole list at 2000, or was it the newer 2150 pts for Rogue Traders, bah I forget which, is 4 necromancers and 240 zombies.
This army was just built on the idea of a Necromancer/Zombie Lord type of character who was trying to raise massive zombies to fight for him, but their black arts didn't work the best. The Leader could animate parts of corpses but never the whole thing. This lead to the cutting and stitching/sewing of totally different body parts from different races together.
My problem with this conversion style of throwing any torso onto any legs and such is what to use for the stitching/sewing. I don't want to just paint the stitching on as it just wont look good as some parts are definintely bigger then others. I want something that will look just like stitching.
Any ideas will be very helpful.
An easy solution would be to use green stuff. Make really small rolls and flatten them onto the parts to be 'stitched'. Take a tool or xacto knife and criss cross over the putty to make the stitches. The rougher they look, the better, being the undead after all!
If you find this too much for that many models, you can also use the putty to make cloth scraps and strips to cover the joins, it will look awesome since they will be a shambling mess I assume?
Hope that helps!
Lower/Lesser rating always ships first!
Yeah my fall back plan was using green stuff. Just the thought of doing it on 240 zombies plus all the extra zombies that will be summoned fills me with dread.
If I end up doing green stuff I thought about doing more of an metal strip with 2 rivets/bolts but still looking for a tad bit faster method, the search continues. :rofl:
