Zombie Calculus

Another member of the Tintin zombie set: professor Calculus/Tournesol/Zonnebloem



The green (remembered to take a picture just before priming). Like the others, it's greenstuff over a WGF plastic zombie.


And a group shot of the little set:

Zombie twins

While not planned originally when I did the zombie Tintin and Haddock, it was suggested I do more characters and since I enjoyed doing the first two so much... here are the twins.

As before, I used Wargames Factory plastic zombies as dollies and sculpted on the detail I wanted/needed. The canes are from a paperclip.

Zombie reporter and sailor

Two more civilian zombies for the WW2 era. An intrepid reporter and his sailor sidekick. They'd been in a lot of tough spots in their days, but always managed to come out of them unscathed. Until now that is...

They are, or should I say "were" called, Tintin and captain Haddock.








Got the inspiration for this late one night (out of nowhere really), so looked at the WGF sprue for the best parts to use as dollies for these, threw in a West Wind zombiehead with peaked cap (after a bit of filing) and glued it together. Sculpted the details in the next day in two sessions (morning and afternoon). Painted the next day.

WW2 french peasant zombie

This one's cobbled togehter from various sources. Anglian Miniatures (now Empress Miniatures) militia head, 1/48 Tamiya torso, arms and legs from Wargames Factory and a healthy dose of greenstuff to blend it all together and to zombify the head.

WW2 civilian zombies: Gramps, girl and young woman

Three more Civilian zombies. The old man in wheelchair is from Blue Moon Manufacturing (and supposed to be Roosevelt I think, but I'll get more use out of him as a generic zombie). The girls are from West Wind, the French civilian pack, with some added "damage".

WW2 zombie mum and boy

Noone gets spared, not even the innocent. Both models are from West Wind and are intended as live French civilians. The slightly creepy look they have make them very suitable to be made into zombies (or Innsmouth villagers). I added a few greenstuff details (wounds, torn clothing), but they probably would still have worked without that too. Shown here with the zombie Churchill (and then on their own).

Let go of my leg...

... is what this zombie would say if he was still capable of such basic thought. I'm sure the sentiment is still there. Not sure what the dog is thinking though. Is he protecting someone from the zombie or is he thinking "mmmm... walking lunch"? We'll never know. The figure is intended as a zombified civilian for the WW2 era.

The basic miniature is one of several plastic '30s themed figures that came with a 1/50 scale Lledo days gone car. Most of these figures are about 28mm and while some details like the faces are a bit lacking, they can be used as conversion fodder to come up with some unique figures. I replaced one arm and one hand with bits from the Wargames Factory zombie sprue (they're good enough for this purpose) and the head is a metal west wind zombie head.
