Hospital zombies

This week I painted up some 15mm-scale hospital-themed zombies.  The miniatures are from the Rebel Minis Zombie Pack #4: Hospital.  They are mounted on 1p coins.  The ambulance in the background is a Corgi die-cast toy, & was featured in a previous post about a paramedic & stretcher that I painted.

I like to go for authenticity, so I did a bit of research into appropriate colour schemes, & as my zombie collection is themed for the UK, I painted these six patients in standard NHS smocks, & the medical personnel as a staff nurse (pale blue scrubs) & a pair of doctors in surgical scrubs (turquoise).  I went for a medium-blue wash on the white patient smocks before highlighting the folds, to represent the blue dot or line patterning that tends to feature on these in real life.  I'm quite pleased with how these came out, especially given the tiny size of these figures.  My favourite part of zombie-painting is always the finishing dabs of gloss varnish on that gore!
