This 28mm multi-part walking cadaver is predominantly made up of plastic pieces taken from the "Mantic Games" "Kings Of War" Zombie Swarm. But has been converted, using some of the metal 'bitz' from "Warlord Games" Mega-City Zombie Horde pack, into the living corpse of Judge Garson; the deceased skipper of Justice Department tank Heavy Four who fell under the deadly control of the Sisters of Death during "Necropolis" and murdered his entire vehicle's crew.
Like all my zeds for Zomtober 2016, the former Judge was undercoated with “Vallejo” Iraqi Sand and heavily washed with “Citadel” Thrakka Green. His exposed innards were then 'picked out' with "Vallejo" White, Heavy Red and Heavy Warmgrey before being treated to a veritable 'bath' of "Citadel" Carroburg Crimson.

With the majority of the lawman's decaying corpse painted, I began applying some colour to the remnants of his Justice Department uniform, and decided to simply replicate the scheme I used on a far 'healthier' Street Judge a couple of years ago. As a result his remaining belt pouches, knee-pad and elbow-pad, as well as his tank helmet, were painted using "Vallejo" Heavy Grey and "Citadel" Thrakka Green. Whilst his shoulder-pad was treated to a combination of "Vallejo" Gold and "The Army Painter" Strong Tone Quickshade.
Having finished Judge Garson, or rather the remains that would later be re-animated by Sabbat the Necromagus during "Judgement Day", I thought I'd also apply the finishing touches to another unlucky inhabitant of Mega-City One. This somewhat hungry-looking citizen's undead flesh was painted identically to that of his fellow futuristic walking cadavers. However, as I wanted him to appear rather more colourful than some of his brain-chomping brethren, I painted his clothing with a mixture of "Vallejo" Squid Pink, Heavy Violet and Heavy Green.
|Zombie Mistress WIPs - This model still requires some additional brown and green washes|
As I only have time for one more posting before Zomtober 2016 finishes, I have been busily progressing the final couple of "Mongoose Publishing" Mega-City Undead miniatures in my collection. It's not clear just where 'Mongoose Matt' got his inspiration for having the Zombie Mistress sculpted, as I don't recall such a creature existing within the pages of the British comic book "2000 A.D.". But as this model came as part of my pledge for the overly long (and still running) October 2012 "Judge Dredd Miniatures Game: Block War" kickstarter, it seemed rude not to give her a lick of my paintbrush and finish her along with the rest of my zombies.
