Second Survivor- Selene

Here is the second survivor of the Zed Apocalypse, Selene.

"...yea, sure, picking up the arrows afterwards is a bit of a pain, but not having every Zee in the surrounding neighborhood knowing exactly where I am every time I shoot? That is well worth the time.

You know, I have seen plenty of guys like you, big gun, small brain, dead before too long. I mean, good for you, you have put down what, a thousand Zees with that thing? Whoopdi-do. I bet you only needed to kill ten of those, and it was the big gun of yours that meant you had to shoot the other 990 Zees, with everytime you shoot it bringing more and more Zees. Do you see what I am getting at here? Or is your brain really that small?

And anyway. You know what they say about guys with big guns, isn't that right Carol?"

Selene is from Hasslefree Miniatures, dressed for survival and armed with a recurve bow. I would be very surprised if she wasn't inspired by the Hunger Games books and movie, but it has come together in a really nice miniature, a female model sensibly dressed, surely not! I went with a bastardisation of German Flecktarn camo on her pants, combined with a very sensible looking jacket and sensible shoes. Both things missing from Carol!

Her name is a slightly convoluted story.

So, Selene sounds like Selina. Which comes from Selina Kyle, aka Catwoman. Catwoman starts with "cat", so does Katniss, which is the name of the hero of the Hunger Games, which I am oh so sure this model is based on. Does that make sense?

Anyway, here is Selene with her buddy Carol, showing how their bases link together. Am I that anal retentive that I checked that? Yes.

And hiding behind one of the Jersey Barriers I finished recently, just to show how big they are.

So, two down. Back to working on next week's survivor. I probably should make some Zeds too....



  1. You're off to a good start, Chris. I like what you're doing and will be following you closely.
