Even More Zombies- Wargames Factory male zombies

Earlier in the week I posted up my Studio Miniatures zombies, this time we have their counterparts from Wargames Factory. With my goal of painting 3 zombies for every survivor, I am currently behind by almost 20 zombies.

With only one sprue of Studio Miniatures zombies left, I am looking at other alternatives.

One of those, is the Wargames Factory plastics. I am not a big fan of the Wargames Factory zombies. They just don't inspire me as much as the Studio Miniatures zombies, they are a bit less detailed especially in the faces. But, they are plastic, they are cheap, and when you are part of a 40+ strong zombie horde how much detail is really needed?

Given the faces were my biggest issue, I decided to replace the Wargames Factory heads with spare Studio Miniatures zombie heads (spare because of the head swaps from the Studio Miniatures zombies this week). This keeps them consistent with all the zombies I have painted so far, and I am really happy with the result, so happy in fact that I will be doing this again!

So with those six completed, we are up to 48 completed Zombies. Still 12 short of the required 60 zombies to have triple the number of completed survivors.

Guess I had better get painting!



  1. Good idea with the head swaps, Chris. I'm not a big fan of the WF plastic male zombies either, but they are great for filling out a horde.

    1. Yep, when making a horde every zombie counts!

  2. Yep, you're right, the WF zombies are good for head swaps etc. and filling out the horde.
    As they're plastics they make easy conversions possible too, I used the lab-coat figure coat cut-down into a jacket for a quick variation. Mantic head also make great more great quick conversions as the WF heads are a bit naff.

    Congratulations on churning these out so quickly

    1. Thanks for the reminder about the Mantic zombies, I need to get some of those!

  3. Nice work... you can never have to many zombies ... or can you ;)

    1. I don't think I have reached too many- yet!

  4. Lovely stuff dude! Mantic's zombies also mix in with these plastics rather nicely. Kitbashing is a great way to give your plastics a lot of variation, your doing a good job of it.

    1. I absolutely agree on kitbashing, it is one of my favorite past times!

      Mantic zombies- I will invest!
