Also, my updates have been rather slow lately and I will put the blame on two major factors. One, is that for 3 weeks, I have been unable to locate the washers I use as bases. When I finally asked, the Hardware Store said that the washers are stocked independently by the washer/nut/bolt company. So I am still waiting on those. I do however have some miniatures already attached to miniatures, but still I am unable to complete them. This time, it is due to Games Workshop switching their paint system. I ran out of Dheneb Stone foundation. I thought I would just order more online, but due to GW switching the paint line up, they only accept preorders online. I dropped into the local GW and they were out of the old Dheneb Stone and wouldn't be restocking until this Saturday (tomorrow) with the new paints. So hopefully I can grab some more tomorrow.
Blah, enough with the excuses, let's look at this week's Zeds.
These are two of Reaper's Urban Zombies. I will be honest and admit they were not the Zombies I was expecting when I ordered. Due to an error in ordering, they were what I received when I meant to order a more modern set of Reaper Zombies, including a police officer. Instead I got a pack of three, armed with weapons and looking from a different era. I clipped the weapons, and only decided to use two of the three. The third was just two out of place, and will probably get mangled into a corpse marker at some point.
The two zombies I did work with are full of character. First off, they are both very large. If the average miniature I have is approximately 6 feet tall, then these two brutes are much closer to 6'10". I'm okay with that. Despite liking most of my figure to be in scale, I to like the variation of a few shorter and a few larger to not make things like too uniform. The thing that can ruin scale creep for me is when equipment like guns seems overly large or small, but that isn't an issue here.
So the Zed on the left looks like he may have been homeless before meeting his end. He wears an over sized trench coat and dirty, torn jeans. He also lacks shoes, which result in him leaving a trail of blood when he steps. I really liked that about this guy.
Zombie on the right however was a young, up and comer in society. I like to picture him as a sleazy politician or something. Regardless of where he was going, he didn't end up any better than the homeless fellow. He looks good in his blood stained suit however.
Comments are appreciated.
