The first dead walk...

The first seven figures are finished, with another sixteen just needing some grey paint on their bases. The zombies here are, of course, the Wargames Factory plastics. Much maligned in some quarters I agree they are not the best zombies on the market, but they are reasonable, easy to convert, are cheap and don't look too bad on the tabletop.

There are some oddities such as more right arms with short sleeves than there are torsos with shirts on but being plastic and swift scrap with a knife solves this. Detail is a little soft in places but the Army Painter dip I have used has brought out more than enough and I am happy enough with the end result, after all they are part of a horde an there will be over eighty of these shamblers alone.

Next stage is to finish of the remaining sixteen this weekend and crack on assembling pack two. I left the bases clean on these intending to add some detritus on the next batch, though I need to paint some bits of blood splatter...


  1. Well I like them and co-incidentally being in need of some shambling undead, think these will suit my need admirably! Did you do any with missing limbs or otherwise in bad shape?

    1. Not in the first pack, I did cut some of the fixed left arms off so they wave around a bit more, but will probably be a bit more adventurous conversion wise with the next two packs...
