"Grant" Zombie Hunter


Although this figure is called "Grant" by Hasslefree Miniatures. I am calling him "Edwardo". I deliberately used Mediterranean colouring for the skin with black hair. I see no reason why there should not be zombie hunters of all ethnic heritage. With a darker skin tone he can of course come from a wide variety of places around the globe. From India all the way round to Brazil. Hispanic American is the most obvious choice for a US setting. While Indian is more Likely in a UK game. Maybe he's Spanish or Italian, French Portuguese or Egyptian. His actual origin need not be pinned down to a specific country. This figure is heavily armed, sub-machine gun in right hand, Knuckleduster in left. In addition he carries two pistols and a large knife as well as several magazines should he need to reload any weapon. His SMG is the same type as Tonys' and as we all saw last week Tony is festooned with ammunition.


Overall another nice figure to paint. The black tee shirt and green trousers give him more of a military feel and less "street" than Tony. so maybe he is ex military, or wants people to think he is. Either way with the selection of weapons he carries he could be formidable if and when he gets on the tabletop.

As I forgot my camera yesterday for the club I am afraid not battle reports and just a single figure finished over the weekend. That being the case I shall blog again on Wednesday. Until then good luck with all your endeavours. Cheers Clint

  2. I really like this figure. I have the bald version. I'm quite tempted to get the armoured up one as well. Nice work sir!

    1. It came in a box set of 4 different zombie hunters and I liked this figure probably the best of the 4. (ALthough they are all good). Not sure what colours to paint the other two though..... but that will change when I undercoat the next one!

  3. He is a great figure (with or without hair - I have the bald version) and you've done a great job on painting him. You could make him the leader or a team member of a bunch of mercenaries just like the Expendables.

  4. Great work on this Clint. Love how you do black though. And agree that he looks ex-military. Quite the right fit for colors with him indeed!

    1. Thank you. I must admit I did try him with a red Tee shirt first, but it looked wrong, the Black was originally used to cover the red! But It look "right" so that's the main thing.
