Here's a preview of the second set of zombie apocalypse survivors for our extremely popular Eaters of the Living range. This is a combination of modifications to the original models as well as new figures.

Boy with big gun and even bigger hat, ex-police officer in hat with Python, and Marsha with pistol:

Rosie Lopez, Lauren as sniper, wearing the fisherman's hat, and the fisherman himself, wearing same!

Kyle with fire axe, Ahab the ex-soldier with military rifle, and Michelle with katana:

These, and the Zebra Kilo Team (special forces zombie killer team wearing full anti-zombie armour and using low recoil shotguns and machetes, inspired by a unit in Ambush Z), will be released just as soon as the caster gets the production sets to me.

Further down the line -- American Police, then British Police, and then Survivor Warband Thugs with Improvised Weapons (think The Saviors -- some of you may know who I'm referring to). Further still -- The Buried, long-dead human corpses which have reanimated and dug themselves from their graves. For some reason, these virtual walking skeletons are faster and more far terrifying than the freshly dead, and more ravenously hungry too. Traveling in groups, the Buried are few in number, but are the most terrifying threat in the post-apocalyptic world -- even more so than other survivors.

I am also considering having a zombie T. rex made, buried near the surface and having dug itself out of the earth. Yes, it's a stretch, but it's based on the fact that soft tissue has been found in some T. rex fossils. If it died in just the right conditions …. grin Thoughts on that? OTT?

Hmmmmmmm…the pics don't show for me.

ah-ha I see what you have done.
Cool stuff.

I can see the two pics… and those are pretty cool, and a great line up of minis! Looking forward to the American Police sets and the SF zombie hunters!

And how could you go wrong with an undead t-rex?!

Rassilon Inactive Member04 Jan 2013 10:47 a.m. PST

Cute! grin

khurasanminiatures04 Jan 2013 10:48 a.m. PST

There are three pics -- you don't see three?

Only Warlock04 Jan 2013 10:49 a.m. PST

I see them all. AWESOME stuff!

Personal logo MrHarold Sponsoring Member of TMP04 Jan 2013 10:49 a.m. PST

Now I see three, or my brain stopped working for a minute there.

Shark Six Three Zero Inactive Member04 Jan 2013 10:52 a.m. PST

These look strangely familiar….as if on some sort of TV show…..can't seem to place it. Absolutely brilliant!

darthfozzywig Supporting Member of TMP04 Jan 2013 11:00 a.m. PST

Nice.

Shark Six Three Zero Inactive Member04 Jan 2013 11:05 a.m. PST

Why aren't these available in 25/28mm? Now i have to sell off the collection of figures and scenery and start over…..CRAP!

(I make fun of others) Inactive Member04 Jan 2013 11:14 a.m. PST

Bloody marvelous figures, but a T-rex would not be able to stay together without tendons and the like!

Personal logo Zeelow Supporting Member of TMP04 Jan 2013 11:20 a.m. PST

I see them…and crave them now!

Jay

khurasanminiatures04 Jan 2013 11:44 a.m. PST

Actually Zeelow they might be available very soon! Just need to get them, and the Zebra Kilo, from the caster. Might be as little as a week off.

viper1959 Inactive Member04 Jan 2013 12:05 p.m. PST

Your miniatures definately have the WOW! factor, very nice…

John M W04 Jan 2013 12:41 p.m. PST

Awesome. Definitely getting the pack(s) with the kid and the katana lady.

A yes on the Zombie T-Rex – especially if you can get Mr. Lovejoy to sculpt it. The premise you provide makes sense to me. Also, wouldn't Mystri Island get caught up in any looming Apocalypse? :-)

Personal logo Cacique Caribe Supporting Member of TMP04 Jan 2013 1:00 p.m. PST

OMG!!!!

Must get them.

Sloppypainter04 Jan 2013 1:02 p.m. PST

Aha! Now I can see them. The little kid with the hat and gun is too fun! Gotta have these.

Ravenstar Supporting Member of TMP04 Jan 2013 1:04 p.m. PST

HA! . love the little kid.

Kev134004 Jan 2013 1:47 p.m. PST

More awesomeness to add to the list!

Zombie T-Rex ……. Yeah I can see that working :-)

Cheers,

Kev

Wow !!

SpaceJacker Inactive Member04 Jan 2013 4:21 p.m. PST

The existing survivors are next in my personal queue (after your new space stuff) … Need to get them done so I can order these! :)

Dragon Gunner04 Jan 2013 4:21 p.m. PST

The 15mm zombie genre gets more appealing with each release.

I me mine Inactive Member04 Jan 2013 7:12 p.m. PST

Wow those are kool. You've done it again.

BlackWidowPilot Supporting Member of TMP Fezian04 Jan 2013 7:42 p.m. PST

Jon, explain one thing to me; how did you get my Significantly Better Half to pose for the sculptor? The zombie slayer gal with the katana looks by all witness accounts like Sandra back in '03 when I was in a coma and the "brilliant" doctors at SUMC told her that they couldn't figure out what was killing me, and The Boss decided that she wasn't going to take their umpteeth "Uh, we don't know" for an answer…evil grin

Ordered on sheer, fabulous principle alone.evil grin

I told her it would please you if she posed. grin

Very nice set again there Jon.

Looking forward to the British police. Finaly some one has bitten the bullet and started some non-US stuff!

Scorpio05 Jan 2013 6:19 a.m. PST

Good stuff. Looking forward to Zebra Kilo team for use as Umbrella Corp substitutes.

khurasanminiatures05 Jan 2013 10:47 a.m. PST

Actually Scorpio IIRC umbrella corp troopers look like swat guys, don't they? I've got two swat teams sculpted as well, though they are stuck in casting queue hell at the moment -- a team with assault rifles and a snatch team with clubs and riot shields (the newer round ones). They have gas masks on as you'd expect, because they will be using gas or other chemicals against their target. They have armour vests as well.

These ZK team members I guess can be used for whatever, but they are specially adapted to fighting zombies -- they have much more complete body armour to minimise bite risk, and machetes for head-work when they are not using their weapons.

They don't wear gas masks, using a big visored motorcycle-type helmet so the visor can usually be kept up for easy communication and better vision, but then it can be put down for close quarter combat and still offer decent vision (as opposed to the eye holes on a gas mask).

They also have military shotguns with large clips, except the team leader, who is using a pistol with his shotgun on his back. Look out zeds, these guys mean business. And on top of that they are special forces (SEALs, SAS, etc) so no one to mess with even if you are in a raider in a survivor warband.

Wow seems like a dream list is sitting in that que!!!
Looks like you and your sculpters have been VERY busy.
Happy bunny

Huzzah!

Fabe Mrk 205 Jan 2013 10:31 p.m. PST

I really need to start play ATZ so I can justify buying all these cool figures.

Stealth100006 Jan 2013 2:22 p.m. PST

Thats it. I dumped 28mm sci-fi for 15mm. Looks like I am doing the same with horror. Its 15mm all the way now.

BlackWidowPilot Supporting Member of TMP Fezian06 Jan 2013 2:24 p.m. PST

Let's try some different photos of the same pair of ever so British law enforcement professionals:

Best,

Actually two of the male poses will not have their hats on so they may well end up looking like those, but there won't be any chubby ones.

Like in the US police pack, there will be two males with hats on, two with hats off, one female with hat on, and one with hat off. By the way, here are the US police greens:

Wow those are nice! Mmm looks like I may have to get some septics as well as British police.

Looking forward to all the survivors you mention. I'll have to see the "dead who crawled back up" to make my decision on that…my Apocalypse is pretty mundane as zombie apocalypses go…think World War Z (the novel, not the Brad Pitt travesty) or Walking Dead (TV, Comic, and novels), but I happily included the Mystri Island zombies in my hoard with their garments painted as shredded hospital gown type things. I'll leave the zombie non-humans for other folks, although would like to see more dinosaurs of the non-zombie variety to use with "Lost Lands."

I love that your survivors are armed with fairly mundane weapons and look forward to more armed with things an average citizen can obtain,…hunting rifles, shotguns, handgus, axes, bats, knives, machetes, or improvised weapons. I'd also like to see some themed as gangs. You mentioned the saviors…also would love to see the "Vatos" or the Governor's men.

Another thing I don't think anyone has tapped into yet are the Amish…if you want to talk about folks who would know how to survive when the lights went out…

I would also love to see more zombie sculpts…the ones you have are the best I've seen in 15mm, but for variety I'd like some dressed in pajamas, hospital gowns, and things people wear when they're sick and in bed … to represent those early victims of "African Rabies" who died at home in bed or in hospital rooms.
