The mini I painted looks like he was in the military (the dog tags kind of give it away) before becoming a mindless killing machine, so I'll call him Sarge. He's wonderfully posed in the middle of swinging half a corpse at whoever's in his way.
After gluing his top half to his legs, it was the usual thinking-too-much-about-the-paintjob moment. I briefly considered giving him camo or at least olive drab trousers, but as I couldn't find my pot of Olive Grey I just went with Sombre Grey and a liberal dose of Black Wash. Drybrushing and layering more Sombre Grey worked for the highlights, and once dry I painted his skin with the usual recipe of Dead Flesh plastered with Green and Purple Tone wash. A dab of Ivory for his single remaining eye and some Wraithbone for his teeth finished off his good looks.
To brighten him up a bit I used Corax White (which is actually a very light grey) for his vest. After shading with Grey Wash I used more Corax White and some White to highlight it. Finally, Sarge's dog tags and watch were given a touch of Plate Metal and some Black Wash.
Sarge wouldn't fit well on a 25mm base, so I used a Games Workshop 30mm one. After the usual glue-and-sand treatment it was painted Chocolate Brown and highlighted with Burnt Umber and a bit of Ivory.
