The most common type of zombie in the Zombicide board-game is the Walker. These are your bog-standard, slow-moving zombies. They are easy to kill and easy to dodge, unless they appear in large numbers.The boxed set contains 40 of them in five different poses. Three of the poses depict males and they are what I'll be reviewing today. The female walkers will get their turn in the spotlight next time.
The Walker at the far left has a large bite wound to his left arm and blood has spattered onto his shirt.
The Walker next to him, in the blue shirt, has been bitten in his left cheek and in the left arm around his elbow.
To add a bit of variety to the colour schemes of my zombies, I painted one of each as an African/American zombie and in all of my review photos he/she will be the fourth in line. This particular Walker suffered a bite wound to the right arm.
At the far left is a Walker in a dark grey suit. He has bite wounds to his right arm, lower right leg and a gunshot wound to his stomach.
The Walker in the dark brown suit has similar wounds to his right arm and right leg.
Finally, is my bald-headed African/American Walker and he has the same three wounds as the previous Walker.
The Walker at the far left has been bitten in the right arm and in the back of his lower right leg. I decided to paint his trousers as a pair of slightly faded denim jeans.
For the second Walker in line, I decided to do something different and I gave him a gaping neck wound in addition to his leg wound. His left hand is smeared with blood.
I gave the African/American walker a neck wound as well, although in a slightly different position to the second Walker in this group. Once again, he has the bite wound to his lower right leg.
When you get a bunch of zombies in identical poses you are left with three choices. First, paint them all the same. Boring in my opinion. Second, paint them all differently to make them appear as a group of individuals. Third, convert them. I only converted one out of this group - the guy in the T-shirt. I will convert the others but I'm not sure when.
These are quite reasonably sculpted and all appear to be very slim. That's not a bad thing for zombies. The hair on the heads could be better defined, as could the fingers on their hands. I have no criticisms with their poses. So far, I have only painted half of the zombies in the boxed set. When I get the second batch painted I will review them.
