28mm Zombicide Board Game Painted........or does that zombie look like Buster Bloodvessel from Bad Manners?

Got the game as a present for Christmas and while still not played it I was lacking figures for the challenge I decided like others to paint the feckers, nothing too wrong with the quality apart from mold lines and the multiple numbers of the same cast.
Trying to paint every figure slightly different from the last one and not going slightly insane.....

"Does green go with pink?"
"Do the fatties look like Buster Bloodvessel?"
"A chainsaw with roller skates?"
"White shoes after Labour day?"

Towards the end of painting I started to remove limbs, heads, drill holes and add a katana, a bowie knife and a fire axe!

Not a bad set and I have received two more zombie box sets from a benefactor and hope to get them done soon..........




I can hear the can can music..........

The main characters but roller skates and a chainsaw........

Still hearing it.........

My favourite model the Abomination.......

Some variants.......

Is that a fire axe in your back.......

The main event........

.......and more.....

........and more......

.....enough already.......

......enough already!

  4. I love this game! You REALLY need to work together in order for you to survive.

    The conversions are great! You have inspired me to do a bit with my set as well.

  10. My kids love this game, they actually cooperate with one another as they play it too!
    We also have Prison Outbreak and Toxic City Mall from the kickstarter and a horde of survivors. Kudos to you for finishing with painting them up and nicely done as well! I've only gotten a few completed, the rest have been added to my mountain of neglect!

  23. Zombicide is a great game to play. I quickly got hooked on it. Congrats on getting all of the figures painted. I had to paint mine in small groups and I still have loads of the feckers left to paint!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Wouldn't want to cross the abomination, they all look awesome

    ReplyDelete
  25. Great job!

    They seem reminiscent of the zombies in the radio show 'We're Alive!" which is worth listening to if yo already haven't:

  32. great stuff, you've done them up a treat! I do think they're a bit bright though. I think I would have done them with a wash to make them more grubby...

    ReplyDelete
  36. They look great! I hope the one on roller skates gets to move farther than everyone else. And the one with her head on the ground is priceless.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Did you actually pain ALL of them? Holy effing cow! And I love the Abomination; he's nasty looking :)

  41. You have reminded me this game exists, I want it again.

    Nice job though, I probably wouldn't bother painting anything there..

  42. We just played again last weekend. We kept waiting for the abomination but he never showed. Jerk.

    Funny thing is, we wondered aloud if anyone would take the time to paint all of the figures. Nah, we said. Guess we were totally wrong. You're crazy, but you're talented!! They came out great. Especially the fatties.
