Zombicide Invader - Reese


Reese is another member of the Zombicide Dark Side "Green Squad".  The green armor went a little faster this time as I used a larger brush and slightly less thinned paint than I've previously used on the base layer.  I lost a little momentum on this one as the glazing still took a long time and didn't turn out as well as I'd hoped given the time put in.  It may have been worthwhile to experiment with spraying on the base layer with an airbrush, but I'll keep driving forward to finish up the squad.  They are halfway completed and keeping them consistent is more important than saving a little time.  

I found a tip online to reduce the chalkiness of the face.  Mixing in a little gloss medium did indeed help to provide a more smooth finish, however, I rushed the glazing a bit.  The head still looks pretty good from a naked eye view so I feel I'm still making forward progress in the skin department.

The chain sword decal worked a little better this time.  Having the yellow/black stripes thinner probably would still have looked a little better, but these will work.  The symbols mostly match the location they are in the game art - the kneepad, right shoulder, belt buckle, and side of the rifle.  They are easier to paint than I thought they would be.
