A while ago I got infected with the zombie-virus (thanks JW) and so I have been painting up some figures and vehicles to start shooting dead-'uns. The rule set I'm gonna use is from the game All Things Zombie (also know as "better dead then Zed").

First up are some old Airfix civilians http://www.plasticsoldierreview.com/Review.aspx?id=366 I haven't had a use for earlier:

Next are a couple of Revell Humvee's, Yes the windows are very VERY blue, but I made these with gaming in mind so left all the fiddly stuff and omitted an interior so I had to paint the windows...

These 4 chaps are from two separate sets I have lying around the first two are from another old Airfix set: USAF personnel http://www.plasticsoldierreview.com/Review.aspx?id=47 the right two chaps are from an ESCI set: Modern US soldiers http://www.plasticsoldierreview.com/Review.aspx?id=524 I painted the latter as a SWAT team, I am going to do 2 more since I intend to make 4 man teams for the players. The civvies and USAF chaps are Non Player objectives. This means that they need to be rescued by the players.

Last up is one of my zombies, I call him Zed 01. He's from Zombies!!! The boardgame http://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/2471/zombies They do separate bags with miniatures, I have currently got a bag o' zombies and a bag o' dogs and a bag o' babes on backorder.

The zombie isn't much bigger then the 20mm figures but his base is rather thick so he towers above the other mini's but this rather adds to the fright they are going to cause the players... I hope ;-)

Sci-Fi madness II


After yesterday's post I got some questions which prompted me to make some additional pictures of the 40K vehicle project and so here they are.

First up some pictures showing the Old Crow Halftrack and Slingshot Multipurpose AFV converted to some Chimera-esk 40K APC. On the Halftrack I used some IG parts and specially a multi-laser for the original Old Crow turrett. For the Slingshot I hoped to have a chimera turret in my bit's box but this turned out to be a leman russ turret... erm so I downgraded that one with a multilaser and here you are...

It might be worthwhile to show you all how these vehicles compare to regular 40K vehicles so here we have some pictures taken with one of my Dark Angel Razorbacks and my customized Chimera
