He looks How I feel!
an EM4 figure I impulse bought on eBay. It pretty much painted itself, it came ready undercoated and the colours were the obvious choices. Grubby white vest, dark blue jeans and dark brown/stained boots. He carries a knuckle duster in his right hand and a wrench in his back pocket. That is probably not the right choice for fighting zombies but for brawling against other humans might be enough, unless they have guns of course. This figure was a joy to paint, it has a very cartoon look to it when seen in the metal which I like. I shall look out for a few more like him as I do have an idea for a game or two using him. But more of that another time perhaps.
I did meet up with a couple of my old role-play buddies last night. One of the questions I asked them was Zombie games, Set in England or America? I can see advantages to both. The main problem being that an English setting is ripe for comedy. "Shaun of the dead" and "Cockneys Vs Zombies" out weigh "28 Days Later" or "Day of the Triffids" (triffids are so close to zombies you can easily use the same rules.). I will have a quick chat at the club tomorrow and see what the guys would rather. They might surprise me. This talk of Zombies is because I purchased "All Things Zombie-Final Fade Out!" (ATZ-FFO) yesterday. I am still reading them and picking apart the differences in the rules from their earlier edition. However as a number of club members like Zombie games I am seriously thinking of starting a "campaign" as I know it is a setting that they will warm too. If I manage to pull it together I anticipate playing it once every 2 months or so. Which will allow us to play other games and yet also not allow it to get too stale. That is it for today thanks for reading. Have a great weekend and I shall post again on Monday. All the Best Clint.
