25mm West Wind Zombies

These could be used for any period but they are with the Voodoo style pieces from West Wind.
They were completed quite a few years ago and were to round a general Zombie horde but I want to separate them for purposes of this Voodoo thing.

I used an olive drab base and then built up with Citadel Rotting Flesh or it's equivalent. Not completely sold on this arrangement but I was experimenting quite a lot with various zombie flesh recipes at the time.

Such amiable hosts .. (kinda weird poses but I like to have a few of this kind of thing around.

25mm West Wind - Gothic Horror - Island of Dr Mereaux - The Doctor's Assistants

I won't actually game The Island of Dr. Mereaux but these will instead be repurposed for Caribbean slavers for the Haitian Zombie/Occult thing I have in mind. Other entries in this series are here:

Slight miscasts on the whips but I was lazy when I cleaned these up and didn't have a good solution at the time. I think that brushable Green Stuff from Citadel would do the trick.

I have most of the explorer types from West Wind in this range but this will be the only pack of heavies for this game. It's not too late, I probably should add some unshaven scruff - especially to this one to give him a bit more malice.
Tufts are "Swamp" Tufts from Army Painter.

This guy was just "Mr. Brown" to me.
If I ever get good at tattoos his big biceps are screaming for a pair of anchors.

25mm Crusader Miniatures - Foreigners - Baron Otto, Alphonse, & Mad Jock

People ask how long it takes me to paint these: over two years in this case because I never paint anything from beginning to end but rather work on this or that as I go along. My paint table has a large mix of odds and ends - over a hundred figures of various ranges and sizes. This is a boredom prevention measure.

These are more characters for my Victorian Horror thing. Crusader only does a handful of useable figure for this project which have been re-purposed from their tiny Wild West range.
Nice clean sculpts - Crusader has a lot of inspired miniatures - especially their Pirates.

Static grass?

Anyone know where I can replace this color of static grass? It was Woodland Scenics but they have nothing close to this color anymore.
