I am looking at doing as the subject says a zombie wargame in 54mm and I am aware of a number of figures in this scale;

1.Gentle Giants 'Walking Dead' 54mm figures.
2.Modern US infantry by Armies in Plastic.
3. Arifix SAS

Just need to source police and civilians. Does anyone know of other available figures?

You should be able to find Police figures in Dollar Store bags, Firemen as well. Civilians are tougher, maybe paint the Zombies as Alive?

Marx Untouchables gangsters as civilians?

october toys had a set of five or six nicely sculpted zombies, but when I went to there website the zombies I was thinking of where gone. In there place are these new rather expensive zombies sets

looks like "Rick",& "Carl" and from the comics "Negan" these might be legit which explains the rather large price tag, they have to pay licencing fees.

Just purchased a box set of the Walking Dead figures. There are 14 in the set and the detail is pretty good. Be keeping my eye on Gentle Giants future releases.

*Spartan63,
Dude, by all means please keep us up to date on this, it sounds like it could be very cool game and great "eye candy'

Best of luck on this one.

NYD Mini's
thanks for posting the pics. I "never" imagined that 54mm (in plastic no less) was still such a popular scale for gaming.
I always figured if you wanted / did gaming in this scale you had to simply "make do" with what you could find and juust proxy everthing. Boy was I WRONG. (Happily)

Have too much into my 28's and 15mm armor project to take on another,but I can stil enjoy the work/ AAR's or others.
Thanks to all that post them.

Spartan 63,
IF you ever get back to this, would love to hear (and see) if you found the Police and Civi figures you needed for the project.
