Nothing fancy today, but a nice addition to the Stillburg undead. These are two of the good old Kev Adams C18 Zombies. Some of the finest zombies ever made, if you ask me.


 

The whole happy gang of undead shufflers. It’s not obvious that the lieutenant actually is a zombie due to his exposed skull but I’m sure we’ll manage. His posture is that of a zombie rather than a skeleton warrior.

For the next Stillburg scenario, a new troop type will be used; Zombie Lieutenant. They’re basically a low powered leader type used to allow zombies group moves. I’ve been thinking about how to represent the lieutenants and how to differentiate them from their mindless brethren. First plan was to use armoured zombies with a shield. Unfortunately, there are only two vintage Citadel zombies that have any armour to speak of, and I will need at least three. There are two candidates which could work; 074579/20 (center in the bottom row) and 074579/16 (right most in the bottom row). If anyone have either of them (would prefer the guy with the sword) – please let me know!

I’ve also finished up one of the militia men from scenario 1. It’s a bit of a quick rush-job, partly because I had to get him on the table quickly – but also because of him not being a Citadel miniature. It’s an old Metal Magic paladin, currently available from Mega Miniatures as a Guard Holding Halberd.

He’s normally acting as a name-less, disposable red-shirt kind of ally but could also work as a guard captain when one is needed.

I’d like to recommend Mega Miniatures, as their minis and shipping are VERY cheap ($1.43 per miniature, and a few dollars for international shipping) while reasonably nice looking. When I ordered from them, I got the minis delivered from the US to Sweden in a matter of days. There are some issues with the scale between ranges though… the Metal Magic minis are usually fine next to old Citadel sculpts (but some will look a bit small). The old Grenadier line also sold by Mega is basically 25mm scale and much too small to mix with Citadel.

Coming up next… Ral Partha ninjas!?
