Zombicide Survivors

I know these are several years after the original release of Zombicide Season 1, but I just recently got around to painting my full set. Pictured first are the original six, plus Nick which was the only promo I got my hands on at the time. I've since gotten Dave, but he isn't painted yet so no photo.

I stuck with bright, comic-like colors...I think it stays with the theme of the game.

Next are a handful of customs I did. I've learned that no matter what game I buy, I always want more or something different. Zombicide opens the opportunities for all sorts of creativity. Two of these, Brad ( who my custom card renamed Harry) and Chaz are actual Zombicide characters, but since the promos are so scarce, I made mine from the Wargames Factory Apocalypse Survivors set. I'm happy with them and didn't have to pay an arm and a leg on eBay. From left to right, Harry, Daryl Dixon (The Walking Dead), Chaz, Frank (The Punisher), Wilson (The Kingpin), and Glenn (The Walking Dead). 

All except Wilson were made from the Wargames Factory set. Wilson is a Malifaux Mr. Graves.

Several more customs in mind, and I'm expecting the Wargames Factory Women Survivors set in the mail any day now...

I just wanted to share a few shots from my latest Zombicide game. The board was 6 x 3 tiles and included Season 1 tiles, Toxic City Mall tiles, and several custom pieces I've found online including a three piece motel and Ned's bunker. Three of my nephews (13-17) and my son (10) joined in for the fun.

Also worked in for the first time were several custom characters...Here's Frank.

My custom Glenn from The Walking Dead

Here's Wilson, also known as The Kingpin. I got this Malifaux figure at the recent CMON Expo in Atlanta.

No full detailed report here. We got slaughtered. These last two shots show how the last two survivors met their doom.

Wilson meeting the horde head on. To the left you can see my custom Daryl...he'd died earlier in the game and I allowed him to come back as a zombie...

Zombicide Mania!!

I've been deeply immersed in the world of Cool Mini Or Not and Guillotine Games' Zombicide boardgame for the past couple of months. True to my "it's never good enough" mentality, I've been finding and creating new tiles, equipment cards, and survivors. Over the next while, I'd like to share some of those custom pieces here so that anyone who enjoys the game like my friends and I do can use them in their own game.

I'll be adding pictures of the miniatures I've used for these characters soon, as well as posting the files for my custom equipment cards and the tiles I've found online. Note that "Harry" is simply rehash of "Brad", but my miniature for him is a custom piece. I didn't get my hands on many of the promos, so I'm making what I can.
