These 28mm metal models are two of the four miniatures found in blister G-SOTR37 German Zombie Bombs by “West Wind Productions”. Sculpted by Andy Cooper I’m a big fan of these miniatures and really like the different explosives ‘strapped’ to the walking corpses. However I am not enamoured with the uncovered head, nor with how it turned out after my application of Vallejo Heavy Kakhi with a Citadel Thrakka Green wash. Indeed having subsequently given the zombie’s detached eyeball and surrounding trauma a wash of Baal Red the facial detail seems to have completely ‘melted away’ into a bloody mess.
I’m still slowly painting several Snow Troopers by “Four A Miniatures” for an Artic ‘Cold War’ scenario using “Savage Worlds”. I’ve had a fair quantity of Drop Troopers subsequently arrive from “Four A Miniatures” and some iceberg resin scenery is waiting in the wings as well.
