German Zombie Horde In Helmets - Part Two

These two miniatures are the next pair of models I've completed from the "West Wind Productions" blister G-SOTR10 - German Zombie Horde In Helmets. They were both painted in much the same way as the previous models from the pack with the exception of the one-armed officer zombie's uniform, which was painted with "Vallejo" Heavy Bluegrey before being washed with "Citadel" Badab Black.

Unfortunately I've had to put my plans to paint a quartet of models from the SOV-SOTR18 Soviet Zombie Horde blister on hold after I started gluing the miniatures' separate heads on to their bodies and found them to be significantly smaller in size than the other Undead model heads found within the "Secrets Of The Third Reich" range. As a result I've ordered both a blister of SHS-SOTR06 Zombie Heads and SHS-SOTR08 Soviet Gas Mask Heads In Helmets in the hope that these heads are of a good size. Indeed the Soviet gas masks look especially useful for the Mustard Gas Breath Zombies.

As part of this latest order from their website I've also purchased SHS-SOTR14 German Weapons Upgrade Pack and several blisters of G-SOTR04 Big Thug. With these I hope to create some Brutes, apparently one of the most common Nazi Horror minions encountered during "Weird War Two".
Whilst undercoating the two models from G-SOTR33 German Packed LMG, I've taken the opportunity to remove the Field Cap with Visor head off of several previously painted Mech Grenadiers, and replace them with heads from SHS-SOTR01 German Gas Mask Heads. I've never been impressed with the look of the visors, as they always seemed too futuristic for my liking, and much prefer the look of the Stahlhelm.


  1. Many thanks. Taking a short break from zombies this week and concentrating on getting some paint on a few Mech Grenadiers. Plus still nibbling away at some plastic Heroclix.
