Today’s unweildly-titled post shows the first half of the Berserker Runner Zombies from the Prison Outbreak standalone expansion. The colour scheme of prison orange and cooked-lobster red carapace pretty much follows the same one I used on the Berserker Abominations and then the Berserker Fatties. It’ll certainly keep them easily distinguished from the other Zombie variations!
While it’s certainly true that these aren’t exactly sexy model blog content, they are very much useful models for our actual tabletop games, especially given that we got up to the stage of using the Berserkers in our little campaign, so now I feel like I need to delay playing again until I’ve gotten all of these finished…
The first batch of models I managed to get cleaned up were the dozen of the first runner sculpt, and along with those I also got the three extra Fatties from the little Berseker add-on pack I picked up recently – and one of the second sculpt – so I painted those as well. Now I just need to finish trimming – and then paint the dozen or so more of that second runner sculpt and I’ll have all of my Berserkers except for the Walkers done. Something to aim for in September, then…
Hello again. Long time no post, I know. It’s because while you Northern Hemisphere people are enjoying what we’d call a warm summer afternoon, we’ve been in the depths of a hellish and freezing winter – which you’d call “it’s a bit chilly, maybe don’t just wear a t-shirt out”. Anyway, as a result of this I’ve been in the way of Sneezy, Drippy and Coughy. While the RATs have been negative, I’ve still had to stay home from work so as to not share the misery and because negative RAT or not, nobody wants a coughing, sneezing, snotty nose-blowing bastard working next to them – especially in 2022. So yeah, time off work, but not exactly being in the most productive state.
So in the time so far this month I started on the other half of my Zombicide 1st Edition Runners. The other 12 of them. Twelve. The second dozen. We have a guy who likes all-Adidas everything, and another who enjoys Jello.
The red on one of the ladies turned out a bit (a lot) more Magenta-ish than I’d planned. I wonder if Kuribo will pick up on the reference in this row of Zombies?
Oh, after I finished the dozen models that were the last of my Runner, I found another pair of them – so I had to prep and paint those two before blooding and photographing the ones I’d just completed. So we have 14 here. I find t-shirts tend to be the best surfaces to add modern pop culture references to. Shouldn’t go too far overkill, though – not everyonme wearing a t-shirt has a print, especially a back print – not that these zombies offer anything else. The one in the yellow and red outfit is either a superfan or Tomoaki Honma, but let’s pick those references!
