Friday has rolled around all too quickly, so it is survivor time!
.."Now you see, huntin' zoms is just like hunting deer back before all this"
The tall man was kneeling, calmly aiming his large, Russian made rifle at the shambling figure in the distance.
The rifle cracks.
"Well, 'cept the deer didn't come running at you, zombies are a bit like a pissed off stag when it's mating season"
The hunter takes aim at the next shambling figure.
The rifle cracks again.
"Both of 'em react to sound, but neither of them see so good. That's why I keep my orange jacket- more likely to be shot by some city lawyer on his first time out of the city, let alone firing a gun"
He spotted another shambling figure, aimed and fired.
"Deer are clever, always hard to catch up to. Gotta be patient to get one."
Two shambling figures this time, the hunter fires once, pauses, and fires for a second time.
"Zombies are clever too I guess, they sure as hell know how to sneak up on you, am I right?"
The hunter sweeps the forest in front of us with his scoped rifle, searching for movement.
"You know, if it wasn't for the whole face eating thing, hunting zombies would be kindof relaxing"
A female figure emerges from behind a tree. Her dress is torn and dirty. Open wounds cover her body, her eyes dull and listless.
"Sorry sweetheart, I ain't on the menu"
The hunter fires again...
This week's survivor is from The Assault Group, he was a freebie when I purchased a fair few figures out of one of their ranges. He is meant to be a Russian soldier, complete with body armour and a fur hat. However, my current obsession with the colour orange dictated that he needed to have the ridiculously bright orange camo hunting jacket, and the rest of the colours came from there! And so, Don the Hunter was born.
I am pretty happy with how he has turned out, his rifle will provide some much needed long range support to any survivor group he comes across.
Well, another survivor done, 16 weeks completed now! I am managing to keep up the painting progress well....
