After going through the forums over at Wargames Factory I feel more then a little bummed.
I wish I hadn't been so quick to order all those zombies from them. Instead I wish I had gone with Mega Mini's. They cost about twice as much as the plastic ones, but they have so many more poses and a line of civilians that match.
Now I am stuck with either taking some sort of a loss and trying to sell the plastic ones to buy metal ones, or sticking it out and going else where for my civilian needs.

Apocalypse Z and Modern Combat arrived today. I haven't had much more then a few moments to flip through the books though as we were looking at places to move to. But over the next couple days I will try to read through them and post some sort of review and maybe future plans for my zombie horde.

I hate waiting for stuff to come in the mail when I am mid project (or more like mid build/early project over all).
I put together another half dozen or so cars.
Otherwise everything is just sorta "on pause".

Another game to play

I just paid for a copy of Apocalypse-Z and Battlefield Evolution: Modern Combat from EBay. So hopefully in a few weeks or so I can give another zombie ruleset a try.

I have played Battlefield Evolution: World At War a couple times and I am a big fan of the Starship Troopers game. So I already have some idea of the basic game. But I am interested in the other types of zombies.

I have accepted the fact that I way over bought zombies for All Things Zombie. So a chance to play large scale battles between survivor army units and swarms of zeds seemed like a good idea. I can use some of my mass horde to make some of the special zombie types.

Speaking of my horde. I do have about three quarters of the double super horde assembled (somewhere around 350 or so). But I will leave the remaining hundred or so alone until I have had a chance to look at Apoc-Z.

Just can't shake the Zeds

I just finished putting together the first half of my zombie horde.

Also I have the last of my survivors put together.

And now it's on to the second half.

Short Break

I have taken a short break from my zombie stuff for the following:
1) the local 40k crowd is organizing a Apocalypse game in a few days. I decided to give it a go. So I need to get a bit of painting done for that.
2) The family and I are going to visit the Grand Canyon next month. But along the way we are stopping in Phoenix for a day and night to pick up another member of our little party who is flying in. While I am in the city I am working on setting up a few games for that day.
3) About the time we get back from the Grand Canyon it will be time to start packing up the house to move out to the new house.
So there probably won't be much going on here for the next couple months, but once I am settled into the new place I am sure I will be back to zombie gaming with a vengeance.

Burger Bar Employee... Taco?

This is Taco. He is my third painted survivor conversion.
Taco was your average under achieving young adult. He worked a dead end job at the local fast food burger joint (where he somehow picked up the nickname Taco). He spent his hours of free time playing shoot-em up video games and listening to heavy metal music.
When the Zed Plague hit he saw it as his chance to do something with his life. So now he is armed with the pistol his manager had stashed under the cash register and he is having the time of his life living out his video game fantasies.
