The final week of Police Month is upon us, and so naturally we have to have these two chaps from Hasslefree.....
... "Now class, we have a special visitor today. This is Sergeant Angel and Officer Frost from the Police, here to talk to us about Zombie safety"
"Thank you Miss Winterbottom, my name is Sergeant Angle.."
"You are an angel to me love.."
"...right... Officer Frost and I are here to talk to you about Zombie Safety. Now before we get started, are there any questions?"
Officer Frost raises his hand, a wide smile on his face.
"Yes Officer Frost"
"Have you ever killed a zombie?"
"No. Because zombies are already dead, you can't kill them. What you can do is stop the virus, which I have done, yes"
Officer Frost pipped up again "How did you do it?"
"I have used a variety of methods, but each time I have hit them in the head, destroying the brain."
Again, Officer Frost spoke "So like guns and stuff?"
"Yes Officer, I have used my standard issue police firearm to stop a zombie" More than a touch of irritation was creeping in to Sergeant Angle's voice.
"Have you ever shot a zombie from a moving car?"
"Have you ever shot two guns at once?"
"Is it true that there is a place on a zombie's head, that if you shoot it, it will blow up?"
"Officer Frost, I am sure the children would rather hear the talk than listen to your questions don't you think?"
Officer Frost put his hand down, and was (finally) quiet.
"Any other questions before we begin?"
One of the children put his hand up, "So is there a place you can shoot to make the zombie's head explode?...."
We haven't had figures from Hasslefree in a while, so I haven't mentioned lately how much I like them! These guys are pretty obviously from Hot Fuzz, so I couldn't resist theming their story around the same film. So apologies for the blatant rip off of their dialogue, but I blame Hasslefree for making such good likenesses. Today's story is different to my other offerings, firstly it is in the aftermath of the Z apocalypse, and it is also trying to be funny (up to you whether I was successful!), so it was a nice change for me to write. These guys have actually been painted up for quite a long time, just waiting for me to post them up here!
These two also come with the first of my vehicles, a police car. I am totally undecided what I am going to do with vehicles, I am really tempted to repaint them all, but that would cause a drastic reduction in the amount which I will have in my games! So for now, it is just in it's prepainted state. Maybe I will just do some weathering...
These two are no exception on the quality from Hasslefree, in fact I see that their kits have gotten even better, with even more weapon options! Do I need another version of these guys? Probably not. There are other things to paint first!
I have one last offering for Police Month on Monday, then back to our regular programming....
