Below are some photos of the Toxic Zombies I've got painted up so far. Many of them have been modified in some way to give a unique look to them all rather than some sort of rank & file uniform appearance.
Initially I tried dipping them in boiling water and adjusting arm, leg, and torso positions as I mentioned on this message board posting. Although they looked excellent and it took very little time, most of them slowly reverted back to their original positions over the course of a month. I then went back to cutting and re-positioning limbs which turned out well and helped break up the monotony of poses. Hair was also added to many of the figures to give each a unique flair.
There are a few painting styles for Toxic Zombies that I found and I chose to follow the excellent instructions Sorastro has here. I left the original bases and opted for a simple matte black with green stripe around each. The runners are noted by a set of red stripes over the green.
Enough text...here are the photos grouped by their original pose:
I didn't want a whole baseball team running around so I decided to remove the hats from many of them.

Overall I think they turned out fairly decent. The Army Painter paints worked well and I like the tones/inks the Mega Set II comes with. To start with I primed them in Army Painter Necrotic Flesh and also followed Sorastro's suggestion and used Citadel's Waywatcher Green glaze to give the green skin tone. There is also a bit of Citadel's Nurgle's Rot seeping out of some of the fatties. I also used Nurgle's Rot on the tongues of the Zombies, after sealing with Testor's Dull Cote, to give them a bit of a sickly yellow shine.
That is it for the Toxic family for now - oh, except for the family photo!
