While I’m waiting for Leviathan and the new Warhammer 40.000 edition like all of you, I wanted to use the time until then to paint the remaining models from my Blood Bowl Shambling Undead team. After my first test model which I painted a couple of months ago I follow up with a pair of Zombies.
How to paint Shambling Undead Zombies
Like with my Skeleton player before, I started with a basecoat of Warpaints Air Oak Brown and applied zenithal highlights of Warpaints Air Charred Bone and Warpaints Air Bleached Bone. After a drybrush of P3 Menoth White Highlight I applied an all-over wash of Dreadful Visage, glazes and spots of Magos Purple, and highlights with a mix of Slaanesh Grey and Reaper Master Series Leather White.
The guts were painted with Speedpaint Moody Mauve (from the updated 2.0 range I reviewed here), then layered and highlighted with Vallejo Model Color Violet, Kakophoni Purple, and finally a mix of Kakophoni Purple and Reaper Master Series Leather White.
You can find all of the other paint recipes I used in this post:
A detailed step-by-step tutorial will be June’s freebie on my Patreon, feel free to support me and Tale of Painters there.
Hope you like my take on the Shambling Undead team, I can’t wait to paint the remaining models and give them a spin on the pitch. In Blitz Bowl, Shambling Undead teams are quite unique, as they have a team of seven instead of six players. I’m really curious to see how this translates to their playstyle.

These are stunning. I live painting Blood Bowl teams. Just enough variety to be interesting. Not too many models to get overwhelmed. Great sculpts & a huge dose of humour and character. I could never paint this cleanly and Id probably grunge them up to hide my mistakes but they look so good.
