So far, I've received most of the Mantic Dreadball items that I chose, the only outstanding things being the season 3 characters that are forthcoming. They are roughly on schedule with their releases and seem to be one of the few that are
I also backed the Soda Pop Relic Knights game but when they announced there would be at least a further 6 months delay, only just prior to original date, I wasn't too impressed. Very little communications didn't help either so I asked for a refund and got that in due course. I might get into the game when/if it's released but it's left a rather sour taste for me
Still, amongst these issues there are one or two gems. Zombie Plague by R Squared Studios is one of these. I knew of the boardgame back when Fortress Figures produced quirky figures for it and had even downloaded the files and played it a few times. Now it's been re-released with nicely sculpted figures I thought I would chip in for a copy of the comic book/rules and a set of the characters. They all arrived in April, only a month or so after the original date which was pretty good going for a small concern
I worked on these figures whilst recovering from appendix surgery, they took a little longer than usually would but that was down to time I could paint for
Here are the four characters next to the original illustrations that I used for colour references whilst painting them. I did replace the original square plastic bases with some nice resin Fenris ones I had to hand
Lovely figures all of them, I will have to get the zombie ones when they come out. The photos are a bit dark, unfortunately the British summer is it's usual gloomy self ..
