And so I come to the last of my five reviews of the Victory Force Zombie Horde set 1 of 100 28mm scale figures. I have deliberately kept the best till last, so enjoy!
Posh Totty 2 is the same sculpt with a few modifications. Her left arm is intact, as is her dress. She wears a light blue patterned wrap around her shoulders and a diamond tiara on her head. She has suffered a bite wound to her right shoulder.
Posh Totty 4 wears a long black dress with a gold necklace. Unluckily for her she has had both arms bitten, chewed or hacked off above the elbows.
Finally, Posh Totty 5 is less formally dressed in a patterned purple dress. She has sustained a massive bite wound to her right thigh and has been shot in the right arm.
Sports Fan 2 is a baseball player of African/American origin. I know very little about baseball and just chose a colour scheme that I thought suited him. If it is the colours of an actual team then that is a pure coincidence. He has been gut-shot.
Sports Fan 4 was a young thug from the slums. He wears trainers, tracksuit and a Burberry cap worn backwards, which instantly identify him as lowlife scum. He has been bitten in the right arm.
Sports Fan 5 was a member of a marching band who frequently performed at sporting events. He suffered multiple gunshot wounds to his chest, right arm and right leg after becoming a zombie - hence the lack of blood. So how did he die? Heart attack, most likely.
Patient 1 has his right arm in a sling and has bandages around his head and left eye. Some blood has seeped through both sets of bandages. Most likely he sustained his wounds from a zombie and he turned undead after he had been treated.
Patient 2 is the same figure but was caught by the zombies after he had visited the hospital. The centre part of his right arm has been bitten off, leaving him with a stump below the shoulder and a hand held in place by his sling. He also has a small bite on his left arm.
Patient 3 still wears his hospital gown and so was obviously caught in a hospital at the start of the zombie outbreak. His gown is covered in blood, which is not all his. His one wound is a bite to the right cheek of his bottom. Bummer, huh?!
Patient 5 is certainly one of my goriest zombies. He died very messily from a huge bite to his neck, which also looks to have been snapped, his left arm was severed at the shoulder, right arm severed at the elbow, he has a gunshot wound to the centre of the chest and bite wounds to both legs. Goretastic!
Elite 2 is my favourite figure from this range simply because of the amount of time and effort I put into painting his Jaws T-shirt. Oh, and he has some awesome wounds, which I always love painting! He has lost both his arms at the shoulder and has large bite wounds to both legs, none of which were caused by a great white shark!
Elite 4 wears a sweatshirt sporting the Batman logo. He has been slashed across the throat. He was the first figure that I finished painting from this set.
Elite 5 wears a Dub Step sweatshirt, which apparently is a form of electronic dance music that originated in South London, England. No, I'm not a fan of it. I simply copied the logo from a fashion catalogue. This chubby gent was bitten in the left side of his neck.
Without doubt, the hardest part of painting these figures was coming up with colour schemes. Once I'd settled on a scheme, the actual painting was relatively straightforward. I painted them in batches of 20 figures at a time but not in the same order as I've shown in these five posts. The Victory Force Zombie Horde set 2 should be a lot easier to paint because most of them are first responders with clearly defined uniforms. There are some more civilians amongst them but most are police patrolmen, firemen, doctors, soldiers and hospital patients. I bought both sets in Victory Force's introductory sale at a very reasonable price. Both horde sets containing 100 figures are still available for sale from their web-store but cost $250.00 each, which is a lot of money for some very averagely sculpted figures.
