Zombie apocalypse survivors

Last year I focused what little time I had for painting on WW2 North Africa... this year my intention is to focus on zombies!

So here is the first instalment. Hasslefree miniatures (, in my humble opinion, produce some of the best sculpted figures on the market... OK they're a bit pricey, but they paint up well!

All of the figures were painted using a mix of Citadel and Vallejo paints, washes and varnishes.

The figures are a mix of one, two, three and four piece minis, offering a good range of poses. M last lot of survivors made up a family... this group are all 'youths' according to HF. Who better to survive the zombie apocalypse than 'the ASBO five'?

Both of the figures above were single piece castings. The miniature on the right comes from a set that resemble Scooby Doo and Mystery Inc (although for legal reasons they cannot use that title).

The figures above are slightly smaller in stature than HF's adult figures, giving them a youthful feel. The figure on the right came with separate arms, with options for a shotgun or a pistol.

OK, so clearly it's Kick Ass, HF clearly can't use the name (Actually they do a good range of TV and Film inspired characters). The mini comes with an alternative head, minus the mask and the arms are separate allowing a range of poses.

Next on the table, skips, recycling bins and barriers from Fenris Games.

Long Range Desert Group (LRDG)

You can tell that it's almost the end of term... I've found time to paint!
At long last I have completed the six LRDG that I started back in October half term! The results of which are below:

 With the end of term looming I should get a bit of paint time in between all the festive madness!

Next on the table are a small group of Post apocalyptic survivors from Hasslefree Miniatures and a small village worth of scratch built adobe buildings for North Africa.
