The Growing Horde

I've been painting a fair bit these days.  Finished 6 more Victory Force zeds for my growing horde.

First up is one I've painted to be a hooker.  As I was painting her I realized she had a Star Trek badge on her left breast.  I'm not even sure she's a zombie since she has no obvious wounds.  She was in my 50 for $50 pack from Victory Force though so now she's a zed.  I filed the badge off and kept on with the prostitute theme.  Next is one I call 'Zombie Gerry'.  He's a big guy in sweats with an arm off.  He must have been on his way to his workout when the apocalypse struck.  Next is a zombie Rabbi.  I imagine that he is using his hands to keep his guts from spilling out.  On closer inspection I suppose he could be Adam Sandler...

First in this lot is a woman in blue sweats with a fanny pack.  Her right hand has been eaten off and she has wounds on her shoulder and elbow.  Next is a man in shorts with butt crack showing and both arms eaten off.  He has a massive head wound but apparently it was not enough to put him down permanently. Finally we have another woman in sweats, this time all pink.  She has wounds on her leg and shoulder. Other than her hair she is virtually identical to the first woman in blue sweats.
So, some good, basic zombies all in all.  The VF zeds do have a lot of character and the sculpts, while not stellar, are good enough for a horde.  And speaking of hordes...




...this is mine in all its glory.  A mere pittance compared to some out there but this is my 42 finished zeds all in a mob.  Of course I have about 50 more to assemble and paint but these will do for a while.  Time to start working on more survivors and the cops I ordered a couple weeks ago...

The buildings in these last 4 shots come from World Works Games.  They are from their instant scenics line.  These are a great way to build a quick urban table.  There are no interiors but if you don't mind that, or you want to scratch build your own, these are a great way to start.

    1. Thanks, Joe! I like to have a lot of different colors. It makes for a fairly realistic crowd I think.

    'Fanny Pack' LOL! I've never heard that term before, so funny.

    1. Thanks, E! I appreciate the feedback. 'fanny pack' must be an American thing. It's those belted pouches meant to wear around the waist. Originally people wore them in the small of the back...just above their fanny. But then we realized you can't get stuff that way and people started wearing them in front. Totally an 80s thing. Of course I never had one... LOL!
