nope, not a joke:

darthfozzywig23 Feb 2010 11:39 p.m. PST

If it's Osprey, the info will be split over a series of twelve books.

khurasanminiatures23 Feb 2010 11:50 p.m. PST

Finally an authoritative colour guide!

the trojan bunny24 Feb 2010 12:08 a.m. PST

Bah, it's rubbish. The cuff links are all wrong.

tjantzen24 Feb 2010 1:01 a.m. PST

I hope that they have included the color reference for the The Chicken Suit zombie.

Personal logo Wolfshanza Supporting Member of TMP24 Feb 2010 1:07 a.m. PST

Bet they didn't even include the bricoles ? huh?

How do toothless Zombies eat brains????

Food blender for a protein shake?

too bad Angus McBride wont be painting the illustratrions

basileus6624 Feb 2010 2:55 a.m. PST

I'll wait until "Zombies of the Napoleonic Wars" is released.

John Leahy Supporting Member of TMP24 Feb 2010 4:52 a.m. PST

Well, you know the Zombies of the Waffen SS will be the best seller.

XRaysVision24 Feb 2010 5:45 a.m. PST

Unless he too is a zed.

Which series is this going be in, Men ate Arms or Worrier?

CAPTAIN BEEFHEART24 Feb 2010 5:54 a.m. PST

…Any equipment photos, maps?

combatpainter Fezian24 Feb 2010 6:05 a.m. PST

I will finally know what colors to do the cuffs and lapels!!!

Sloppypainter24 Feb 2010 6:14 a.m. PST

"Flags of the zobie hordes 1998 to 2009" is the one I'm waiting for.

Which series is this going be in, Men ate Arms or Worrier?

Too funny Xray…too funny.

"Well, you know the Zombies of the Waffen SS will be the best seller."

Which edition? Easter, Western, or Balkan zombie fronts?

(I make fun of others)24 Feb 2010 6:45 a.m. PST

Can't wait to see how the Napoleonic Undead color plates are received on that forum.

Personal logo Bobgnar Supporting Member of TMP24 Feb 2010 7:10 a.m. PST

Does this cover just re-animated humans, or also infected creatures (rage and T Virus, for example) and humans taken over by outer space creatures, or other forms of human ailments that lead them to want to kill humans. Will there be differentiation between fast and slow zombies?

Ambush Alley Games24 Feb 2010 8:07 a.m. PST

Joe, the author of the book, is quite the zombiephile, so I'm willing to bet that most of the classic zombie bases will be covered . . . . WITH BLOOD!!!


Sloppypainter24 Feb 2010 8:25 a.m. PST

Will there be a scenario/campaign book, too? "GranMa Betty's hill clan campaign of S. Georgia." How about a fortress series? "Boarded up/Barricaded rural houses of Illinois?"

M1Fanboy24 Feb 2010 12:29 p.m. PST

I told my wife this morning about this…she groaned and said this fad has gone too far. It beats emo vampires who sparkle all hallow though! I am interested to know what the color plates might look like!

From a company that refuses to cover many of the well-detailed and well-described SF forces in print?!?

Well … I guess it's a good move economically … evil grin Maybe they'll do the same for Star Trek & Stargate … I'd buy those ! Reminds me of when GHQ released Wehrmacht '47 … I thought it as a great idea ! But a lot of comments were made about all the "real" models that should be made instead of stuff that didn't make it off the drawing board or prototypes. I'm not a Zombie-phile, so it has me shaking my head a little bit too. But as I said, it may be a good economic move. Ya can't swing a dead cat around here without hitting a couple of Zombie-philes ! evil grin

John the OFM25 Feb 2010 11:47 a.m. PST

I would not be surprised if it turned out to be one of their best sellers.

BlackWidowPilot Fezian25 Feb 2010 2:12 p.m. PST

This is just wrong…. I LIKE IT! evil grin

I suppose this means an inevitable FoG Zombie supplement soon to follow?

Zombies of Attican Wars?

Brains… Brains… Osprey… Brains…

Caliban Supporting Member of TMP26 Feb 2010 5:36 a.m. PST

"Zombies of the Waffen SS": wasn't something like that in the "Illuminatus" trilogy?

Steve Hazuka26 Feb 2010 6:18 p.m. PST

Hey who just hit me on the head with a dead cat? Quit swinging that thing!

Personal logo Legion 4 Supporting Member of TMP27 Feb 2010 12:58 p.m. PST

huh? evil grin

Rogzombie Fezian27 Feb 2010 10:49 p.m. PST

I have to wait too long…

Uesugi Kenshin Supporting Member of TMP28 Feb 2010 6:41 a.m. PST

Okay….I pre-ordered it….I feel dirty….and hungry.

Mehoy Nehoy21 Apr 2010 12:11 p.m. PST

It seems Osprey's solution to factual inaccuracies in their books is to dispense with facts altogether.
