The walking misfits zombie squad
« on: April 14, 2012, 03:21:57 PM »
Hi FOD,

I've finally finished the squad that I'm calling "The Walking Misfits" in plenty of time for Salute. It's been a blast bringing these together :-)

John.

Great work. As above love the bases. I thought you had rebased them all on 1 scenic base, but now I see otherwise.

Such an awesome piece! Love all the contrast between all the rubble with the biohazard sign and the pretty flowers.
Nice work aswell on the Misfits shirt, the tatoos and the dirt on the jeans! 
And really nice use of figures! I especially like the granny in rubber boots loading quite relaxed her gun like it's a daily habbit.
Well done!

Excellent work there. Adding the flowers was a very good move in my opinion. It's slightly out of place and makes heads turn but when you look at it for a second time they really "make the scenery work". Cool paintinting of course as well. ;) How was Salute for you then?
