Welcome to my little corner of preparations for All Things Zombie. Here you'll find my progress of painting miniatures and preparing terrain, as well as any other little nerdiness that may sprout up. Enjoy, and please comment.

Populating Mayhem City 15 (More of Bobby Jackson's Thugz)

Welcome back to those that are still reading, a couple of more thugs have shown up on the street of Mayhem City.  Whether it is to create problems for the police or do their best to survive the Zombie Apocalypse, this duo is prepared to bring the fight to the table.

Today I present the brothers Aldo Prince and Jack "Baldo" Prince, affectionately known as Aldo and Baldo.  Also sports a nice afro, and a machine pistol.  His hand post indicates he may be smoking, though my figure has no cigarette in his hand.   Also is the younger and sportier of the brothers, as he is rocking a basketball jersey and short (for some reason, on top of long pants).  Of course, to dress to impress, he has his share of bling shown off.

Baldo is a bit of a custom figure, as his head is taken from a different Bobby Jackson figure.  What can I say, I liked the original head from this figure better somewhere else.  That will come in a future update.  Baldo also favours the colour red, like his brother.  A little more mature however, hs is satisfied with a regular old pistol to do his talking.  More bling of course, one is never too mature for bling.

The pictures aren't the best.  My wife got a new camera for Christmas, that once I figure out, should produce much better pictures.  However, my biggest problem is lighting.  I need to pick up some better lamps for photos.

As with all Bobby Jackson's thugs I liked these figures a lot, despite modifying one a little bit.  These guys look a little overwhelmingly red as a duo, but they blend in nicely with the rest of the gang.   The full names don't really stick with me, as they are simply called Aldo and Baldo.  That started as Afro and Baldo, but I preferred the rhyming scheme.
As always, comments and advice on the figures is appreciated.

Also wanted to take a moment to point out a new blog/store I stumbled across last night.  Demo's laser cut terrain is looking like a nice cheap way to quickly put together some buildings.  As much as I love worldworkgames' cardstock terrain, the time investment there may keep me from ever getting ATZ on the table.  I will be picking some of Demo's designs up when I get a chance.  Check them out here.


  1. Great additions Adam good to see the projects still on going.

    Terrain is another issue for me to face this year as well and don't know where to start

  2. Another two nice additions to your gang. The conversion has come out well.

    Those new buildings you previewed do seem like a good alternative to card models, especially if you're strapped for time.

  3. Those two look menacing. They'd survive the zombie apocalypse.

  4. I have the THUGZ too, they're really nice figures especially the ladies, you've done a good job there....

  5. Good work, those Thugz look good, nice painting.

  6. Nice paintwork, wouldn't have noticed the conveersion had you not pointed it out - good job obviously "
    Demo's buildings look interesting but their office furniture sets looks very usuable - nice link.

  7. Nice job on those Thugz. I like your color palette for them. I've been wanting to get some of those. I think I will now.

    Those Demo buildings are very good looking. I've been thinking about getting some of those.

  8. Thanks for the comments guys, it is always appreciated.
    If anyone winds up with some of those Demo buildings, make sure to post them in your blog, as I would love to see them finished.

  9. Great addition to your survivors.
