Zomtober- Last Night on Earth survivors 2

I'm kicking along nicely with the survivors. Mostly a basecoat with a wash, highlights if I feel like it, and a bit more time on the faces.


Sister Ophelia is a 'reformed nun', whatever that means. Black wash over dark grey- needs some antishine.

Kenny is throwing Campbell's soup tins at the oncoming hordes. Warhol would be proud at this social commentary.

 G-man, nice pose, useful figure.
Agent Carter, FBI
Amanda- I hope she decides to wear something more practical if she makes it through the night... She'll be useful in any slasher film scenario. The dress is blue undercoat, silver, blue wash.

 Alice could do with a bit more attention to her hair, but I like the colour of her dress.

 I like how Jake's face came out. He looks like he'd survive.

 I'm still challenged by getting a smooth orange. I quite like how Victor came out overall.

Detective Winters is the only black character... at least she's very cool. I tried to channel a bit of Kima Greggs from The Wire.

    1. She’s quite genetically useful.

  2. Nice. How about a jeweled ring for one of Amanda's fingers.

    1. Is this a reference to something? I’m afraid I don’t get it.

    2. No. Just thought a ring on her finger would be appropriate for a dazzling femme fatale.

    3. Maybe she’s on a quest to retrieve it from her mortally-challenged beau!

    4. Now that is a sub-scenario plot that is genius.

  3. Great job on them all Barks! The Detective at the end is my favourite!

  4. Great bunch of figures! Especially like the grocery clerk throwing the cans - is that figure from an expansion? I'm pretty sure I have an unopened expansion or two from LNOE that will soon be opened after seeing this :)

    1. I was almost tempted to write a huge paragraph about the deeper meaning of this figure, but luckily for all my readers I didn’t.

    1. I’m sure he can get them back later, thanks Ray!

  9. Great stuff! As we're all nominating favorites, I'll plump for Alice!

  10. They all look fantastic. I think you're right, the last three seem like they will survive the night... the rest? not so sure

    1. Who knows?! I do like a subversive plot twist.

  11. Really nice work again.

    Not sure if it's something your interested in, but I think the Mantic Mars Attacks models might scale well with the slightly smaller scale of these models.

  12. Fantastic work, Barks.

    You know things are not going well when all you can do is throw soup at the zombies.

    1. Alternatively, it demonstrates confidence. With croutons.
