"The brains are good. The no brains is evil. The living shoot seeds, and make new life to poison the Earth with a plague of men, as once it was, but the zombie brings death, and purifies the Earth of the filth of brutals. Go forth ... and eat brains!"

Zed's adventures continue as he becomes one of the undead.  Now you know why the Exterminators wore those silly helmet things, to protect their brains.

The zed Zed was made from two Heroclix models.  Aquaman's head and Hawkman's body.  Sure his braid has come undone, his boots don't go up past his knees, and the gauntlets aren't Zardoz cannon; but he looks enough like a dead Zed.  I scribbled hair on his stomach and chest with a fine point Sharpie marker.

Speaking of zombies, I had extra plastic Perry dismounted Dragoon, so he joined the horde.   I drilled a hole in his chest with a larger exit hole in the back.  He's missing a hand because I couldn't find my baggy of zombie bits;  I'll drill some holes and add bone stumps if I don't find it soon.  I have enough zombies that the Dragoon and Zed should fit into the crowd without being to obvious.

Here's an ancient zombie miniature from out of business Grenadier Models.  He came in the Dungeon Monsters box set (5002) available in the early 1980s.  He's smaller than most of my zombies, but bulkier than the Wargames Fiddly plastic zombies.  I don't give much thought to size parity in my shambling horde.  People and potato chips come in different sizes, so should zombies.

Lastly is what I believe to be an old Mageknight model (no idea what it was called) but he appears to look like a "Charger" from the Left For Dead 2 video game.  He had armor on that needed to be cut and scraped off, but I left some of his clothing because it was very Zardozesque.

The quote was from the movie Zardoz edited to be more zombielike.

On an unrelated note, I played a very enjoyable WW1 game of "The Great War".  Sadly I forgot my camera and have no pictures for you.  A terrific group of NHMGS guys showed up and their presence made the game incredibly fun.   For pictures go to a quality blog at
