I've been looking at a lot of figures to use as Survivors in a zombie apocalypse setting recently. Staying with that theme, here are a group of figures who certainly qualify as Survivors - The B Team from Foundry Figures' range of 28mm scale Street Violence figures.
Next up is the iconic Mr. Z (presumably pronounced mister Zee and not mister Zed) or as fans of the A Team would call him, Bosco Albert "B.A." Baracus. He is festooned with loads of gold jewellery, his trademark bling, and wears dungarees and a cut-off T-shirt. The mohican haircut is another trademark of the character. Also, note just how muscular he is. You don't want to mess with this dude!
Third in line is "Mad Dog" Malone aka "Howling Mad" Murdoch. Is he really mad or is it just an act he puts on to fool others? He is the most casually dressed member of the team with his rumbled pants, T-shirt, leather jacket and baseball cap.
The final member of the team is Starbuck as named by the folks at Foundry or Templeton "Faceman" Peck as he is known in the A Team. He is the most smartly dressed member of the team in his three-piece suit, shirt and tie.
Last in line is a woman called Sissy. She is not a member of the team but presumably, she is the person who called the A/B Team for help. "Mah house is surrounded by zombies! Ah need heyulp as soon as possible!" She is the archetypal damsel in distress. Actually, she is perfect for an ordinary, generic female civilian. You can never have too many of them!
These are well sculpted figures and are ideal if you want to run a cheesy, tongue in cheek game of ATZ. How well would they cope with a horde of flesh-eating zombies? That's up to you to decide. In the TV series they never seemed to shoot anyone. Either they were lousy shots or terrific marksmen if they were aiming to miss.
I must admit I was never a fan of the show, even though I watched quite a few episodes when it was first aired. I have not seen the recent movie, so I can't comment on that but the trailer moved me to apathy. I'll probably watch it when it is shown on terrestrial telly as I have no intention of paying money to view it.
I recently bought a Corgi 1/48th scale version of the A Team van at a local toystore. I understand that WWG make a kitbash of the same van but it is not a model that I've bought yet. If you're desperate for an A team van, it might be worth checking out if you can't get a die-cast version of it. This is set SV037 from the Street Violence range and the pack of five figures cost £10.
