    My WIP zombies need just a little more detailing before I start the paint. I've learned a lot doing these guys and have been lucky with some of them and not so lucky with others. I'm hoping everything just comes out in the wash, lol.

    Not sure if this is the right forum for this, but here goes. Roxy or any other moderator, feel free to move it if you need...
