From FrancisL: 28mm Zombicide Horde and Heroes (360 points)


Our Irish lad from Gravesend has not been idle...

From Fran:
This is the complete of miniatures you get with the boardgame Zombicide, 71 plastic miniatures: 6 heroes, 8 fatties, 1 abomination and 56 various breeds of slim zombies. A present from a friend and as miniatures were low I decided to paint the feckers...
First up, above, we have the full set of miniatures...
Here are the 6 characters, 2 I'm not so keen on are roller skate girl and the samurai sword wielding teen but the other characters are fine...
The fatties are next but do remind me of Buster Bloodvessel from the band "Bad Manners"...
Now this is an Abomination and a real beauty and was my favourite from the box...
Now we have some pictures of the main bunch of 56 zombies, 8 each of 7 different poses, now these buggers were a bit of a pain due to all the same poses and then trying to paint every single one differently...
Started to worry about which colour went with which, does green go with pink?
That initial enthusiasm started to wane a little and then we started improvising, cutting and drilling...

Buckets of blood were also used but all in all not a bad bunch of figures or sculpts and another box of 24 infected zombies have turned up on my doorstep and may make the end of the challenge...
...and maybe even a game or two? 

Holy smokes that is a lot of minis Fran - well done! I was asleep at the switch when this Kickstarter launched and now, after seeing the excellent work of yourself and Paul, I will have to bite the bullet and pick it up with the rest of the great unwashed. 

This fine horde of zombies and coterie of heroes will give Francis an impressive 360 points - enough for him to handily punch through his second Challenge goal of 1250 points. Cracking job Mr. Lee!

BTW I would really like to see a game of this posted at your place or Postie's... Just sayin'.

    1. Pearls before swine. ;) Perhaps placing the zombie action in a Vauban fort will sweeten the pill...

  15. They look very nice if one can say so about a zombie horde. Sufficiently grimy.

  17. Superb painting - I've played Zombiecide a few times. It's a fun game but made better if beer is available during playtime.
