Zombie survivors, and an EXCELLENT product!
Finished up two more zombie survivors! One man in a suit with corduroy pants, and a little girl, heavily armed!
Along with them I can also show the first two pieces from a WONDERFUL set of equipment... two from a set of bags from Simon Hunter over at TMP, who I think runs Project Zeke miniatures!
Here is bag #1... a pretty excellent standard canvas military duffle! I love this piece... it is something you see ALL THE TIME, but almost NEVER on toy soldiers! I did add the straps, using a bit of green stuff. I went with a desert camo, rather than traditional green. I love the flap folded over on the top!
Here is the second bag, a FANTASTIC bear/backpack, ideal for a kid, or in this case a little girl! Again, I added the stripes using green stuff. I love this one... sure, it sort of breaks the "realistic" mold I was using for my survivors, but it is that PERFECT bit of pulp that looks so good in a zombie game!
Here is the guy from the front... I called him Roger, originally, from Mad Men, but now I call him Marty, as in Marty Scorsese. The jacket and pants are colorful; I was trying to avoid a standard black suit. I am not in love with how he turned out, but he looks okay in person.
Here is the girl... I think she looks pretty good:)
And here they are together. Overall a nice addition to my collection of zombie survivors, and some GREAT bags from Simon! There are two more in the set that I am going to use as a "loot" counter... I'll post those later, as well as Simon's email (when he gives me permission!)
