Monday Miniatures: Rats
This week we do another mass painting exercise, and try to finish off another bunch of vermin. In this case, rats. This mini lacked much in the way of details, but the posing was actually much nicer than I thought it was during previous examinations.
Zombicide 3 is up, and it has raised half a million dollars in the first six hours. I know several readers have backed past iterations of the project, and will no doubt back this one as well.
I tried painting these with a variety of different color schemes, but in most cases they came out looking simply muddled rather than varied. Still, some of them came out nicely. Small models like these really hit home what small splashes of color can do (like on the paws and eyes, for instance).
Magnus did a better job of producing a varied color scheme, though the jaundiced rats look just plain creepy. The stone also came out very nice.
Kylie did an outstanding job. She only had a couple left to paint after she painted most of them to accompany the swarms earlier in the year, but I love the albino color scheme. More information is available on her website.
Dirk presents us some really mischievous moon rats (that are obviously up to no good.)
Antonia on the other hand, presents a particularly gory death, as an adventurer is ripped to death by giant rats.

Familiars – Paint your favorite, or two or three – it’s up to you.
Bat Swarm – I think this is one of the weakest minis in the entire bones collection. Let’s see what we can do to fix that.
TBD – What would you like to paint in August?
