Zombie Hunter Kev.

My latest Zombie Hunter is Kev. No Not "Zombie Kev" from the club, but Hasslefree's Kev ZH figure. As with all Hasslefree figures It is a really nice sculpt and as such a real joy to paint. This figure seems a little shorter than most of their range which I quite like as it gives a natural height variation. I must admit I did struggle with the colours this time out, but am quite happy with the final result. (Although the "jumper" has been painted 3 times now). As regular followers will know I bought him as part of the Zombie Hunters pack. Tony being my favourite was the first one completed and now I only have Ken to paint. You can take that as a warning that there will be another one along soon. Overall I have enjoyed painting them all and I shall do a group shot once Ken is ready.

I have both front and rear view as the armour is hard to see clearly from the front as is the webbing harness. I wanted a contrast between the two as I want all the figures to look like they have found their items and not been issued them and yet I do want them to look realistic. I was lucky enough to see this armour on a TV cop show but the webbing was the same green. But as I wanted a contrast and dark blue looked wrong I settled on brown. Therefore we can assume that Kev has taken his equipment from a military source, as opposed to Tony who's armour is Dark Blue and most likely police issue. The grey pullover is civilian clothing and is probably his own prior to the Zombie apocalypse but the trousers are probably looted along with the boots and armour.

Well that's today's post. As my next scheduled post would be X mass day I shall do a very brief blog post tomorrow instead.  Thanks for reading See you all tomorrow. Take care and kill Zeds!

All the best Clint

  3. A great paintjob, Clint, especially on his face. The eyes have come out very well, and I know from personal experience, they can often be a bitch to get right.

    All the best for Christmas, mate!

    1. Thanks Bryan, I must say I like doing faces, they bring the figure to life.... or unlife! I feel lucky this time with the photography.

  5. Nice work Clint he looks great. He is a little shorter than the rest as he is based on Kev White who sculpted them hence its a little mini me.

    I really like the colour scheme it really suits the figure.
    Have a great Christmas mate.

    2. Good Idea its completely different looking to Mathyoo's though amazing the difference of a colour scheme can make. Trying to decide what todo with my 15mm scifi figures at the minute.
