Confession time. I have had this batch of figures painted and ready to review for a couple of months but it is only now that I have gotten round to reviewing them. They are the Studio Miniatures "To Kill and Serve" set of four 28mm scale scale zombie cops. I feel guilty about waiting so long to post this review as I love Studio Minis. Incidentally, I finished painting these just after I'd finished playing my Assault on Precinct 13 scenario, which is why they didn't make an appearance there.
Next up is undoubtedly the "star" figure of this set. He has a pair of handcuffs, one half of which is tied to his right wrist, whilst the other half is still attached to the hand and lower arm of whoever he had arrested. There is a slight possibility that the arm dangling from the handcuffs may be his own, seeing as his left arm has been severed at the elbow. I find that possibility stretches credibility a bit too far. He is definitely one zombie you won't forget in a hurry.
Finally, is a zombie staggering along with a serious leg wound, which is particularly noticable when you look at him from behind. His pose perfectly captures the way he is limping unsteadily as if his right leg can barely support his weight. He also has a very long gash in his lower left arm, which is probably a knife wound.
This set is up to Studio Miniatures' usual high standards and they are a must for any zombie horde. Even if your zombie apocalypse isn't centred in America, you could still use these as zombie cops in most countries of the world. I imagine these guys will now be hanging out in the Mayhem City Precinct 13 Police Station.
This set of four figures retails at £12.99 from Studio's webstore. Next time, I'll be reviewing yet more Studio zombie goodness. See you on Sunday.
