Ok. Something a little different but at least it’s a return to the 18th Century! While negotiating the sale of some Polly Oliver figures I was pointed to the Traitor to the Crown trilogy by CC Finlay, consisting of The Patriot Witch, A Spell for the Revolution, and The Demon Redcoat and he described them as witches and wizards in the AWI. Reading the blurb also mentioned a zombie and the whole thing piqued my interest. I’ve done a little research on available zombie figures but most seem to be either sword and sorcery fantasy types or modern. I wanted 18th Century ones so someone suggested a conversion and paintjob so I thought I’d try one out. I think the original figure is a Freikorps mule handler so I tried to make the whip look a bit like a bone, made the trousers look a bit ragged and added a bit of entrails to the outstretched hand. I’m not happy with the skin tone, it came out a little too purple but it’ll do. Anyway, who’s to say what is the correct skin tone for a zombie!
Anyway, some pics as he confronts some of England’s finest!
And watching the whole proceedings with that ‘feed me’ look similar to that of the zombie, is our cat, Shebee!
