U.S Special Forces Zombie Hunters

I know, I know it's been an age since I last updated my blog... sadly work and the recent loss of my father has seriously curtailed my painting!

Well come half term, come the painting frenzy!

Those of you who are familiar with the book World War Z, will appreciate the inspiration for my latest offering. In the book the U.S start dropping 4 man spec ops teams into the grey zones to search for survivors and organise resistance.



I opted for four figures from Hasslefree Miniatures. Their figures aren't cheap, but they are beautifully sculpted and paint up a treat. As ever I used a mix of Vallejo and Citadel paints and washes.


 

 
 The uniforms are based on the current US military digital camouflage, which I created using a half dry brushing, half dabbing method that I think has worked.




Next on the paint table - North Africa adobe buildings.

  2. Sometimes painting must take a back seat. Sorry to hear of you loss.
    Figures are looking good. I like the idea but don't recall the 4 man teams from the book but it was a few years ago I read it. I totally agree regarding the Hasslefree figures, worth every penny. All the best.
