Hey there people,

Looking to take advantage of the Warlord Sprue sale that's happening right now and I'm looking for some input.

I remember when Wargames Factory released these, they were pretty much the only game in town, is that still the case when it comes to low cost survivors? To the best of my knowledge there isn't anything else like them out there.

Does anybody have a good link to the various conversions I remember seeing? My Google-Fu is utterly failing me on this one.

What ratio do you recommend for the extra weapon sprues? 2:1, 3:1?

What about the zombies themselves? Should I load up while they're cheap?

Lastly, how do the former Wargames Factory sculpts scale with other ranges?

Thank you people, I appreciate your time.

I used to sell them and they went well. As with most of the later Wargames Factory stuff I think they were good models. So go for it.

IRC their Zombie & Apoc Survivors were being redone at the time of the transition, the result (WL games Project Z) looks great.

Personally, if I had the bucks to spare (other priorities)right now.. I'd "Load UP on'm!" thumbs up
And not just Survivors and Zeds.

Thank you guys! I bit the bullet and went for it.

I ordered 3 sprues each of the male survivors and zombies, an extra male weapon sprue, and then a sprue each of the female survivors and zombies.

Excellent! If you have a photo-flicker acct. etc. It would be great to see some of your collection, even WIP.
I know your pain.frown

Guys, if you subscribe to Warlords newsletter, they will inform you of their sales. The Male zombies were redone , the original set was awful. I bought a sprue of bikers just to take advantage of the sale.

I can wait. Lots of other unfinished projects to keep me occupied in the meantime… ;-)

I like the fact you get so many weapon options and equipment on the sprues but found the figures to be limiting when your building them. Only certain arms work on certain bodies. But all in all not too bad. They match up well with Hasslefree miniatures. My go to for zombie survivors…

So now I can Post again.grin TMP with drawl is not pretty.

I like.. you get so many weapon options and equipment.. but found the figures.. limiting when your building them. Only certain arms work on certain bodies.
I ran into that problem w/ some of the early WF mini's I got, very annoying.
I will say, there was never a lack of weapons and extras, a great 'bonus' when dealing w/ them.
