More German Zombies

These 28mm metal models are the other two miniatures found in blister G-SOTR05 German Zombies (A) by “West Wind Productions”. As with my other “Secrets of the Third Reich” zombies, I used an old Citadel Foundation pot of Adeptus Battlegrey for their undercoat before washing them with Nuln Oil. However, having felt the mixture of Vallejo Heavy Kakhi with Citadel’s Thrakka Green wash produced too green a hue for undead flesh, I instead used Vallejo Warm Grey on these models; producing a far subtler rotting skin effect, especially when coupled with a spattering of Citadel Wash Baal Red.
Our second game of “Weird War Two” using the “Savage Worlds Deluxe” rules by “Pinnacle Entertainment Group” went far quicker than the first, despite the British Line facing twice as many of the walking undead. This was largely due to both the Sergeant (Wild Card) and Bren-Carrier (Extra) keeping their Fear in check this time round and firing a hail of lead into the advancing cadavers. The odd Joker card turning up during Initiative (+2 to all Trait and Damage rolls) as well as a few dice ‘Acing’ made matters even worse for the German Horrors… Time to introduce some Exploding Suicide zombies next.
In the meantime I’m slowly continuing to potter on with these Snow Troopers by “Four A Miniatures”. I’ve since ordered some more of the company’s Drop Troopers (also sculpted by Adam Gayford) to use as Soviet opposition for the Allied Artic expedition.
