Almost there now – we’re in the final stretch! Today we have the Kickstarter exclusive (so they wouldn’t get sued for selling them at retail) models for Zombicide that are absolutely not in any way based on Leonard and Penny from sitcom The Big Bang Theory.

"The Excelsior Acquisition" -- While Leonard (Johnny Galecki, right) prepares for a signing by legendary comic book creator Stan Lee, Sheldon winds up in traffic court because of Penny (Kaley Cuoco, left) , on THE BIG BANG THEORY, Monday, March 1 (9:31-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.Photo: Cliff Lipson/CBS ©2010 CBS Broadcasting Inc.

Fun fact – Leonard the BBT character was named after Leonard Nimoy while Leonard the Cat was not named after either the Star Trek actor nor the Big Bang Theory Character. In fact, neither Marouda nor myself had never seen a single episode of BBT at the point in time when we got Baby Leonard.

A pretty straightforward model in civvies. I matched the scheme to clothing worn by Leonard in the show. It’s not a particularly great sculpt and the face is pretty board game model mushy, but it does the job.

I based Penny’s outfit colours on the character card. It seems pretty close if not accurate to the sort of stuff that she wore in the first couple of seasons of the show, before the show got especially popular and Kaley Couco in turn got enough clout to tell the producers that she would like to wear slightly more clothes please and thank you very much.

These two can join Not-Howard, painted way back in …2015 (has it been THAT long???) 😲 I’ve still got Raj, Bernadette and Amy Farrah Fowler to paint at some point. The prices for Zombicide Not-Sheldon Cooper are insane, so I see a 3D printed proxy being my solution there – could be a fun few themed games running the whole core cast through some missions.

Just one more post (tomorrow) before the December Round-Up/2022 Reflection post – then I can show you all what I’ve been painting and working on this month!
