Zombicide: Mantic Zombie Mutations II (Fatty)

Hello all,
Painting Zombies. No problem. But painting more than a hundred zombies to paint will drive anyone insane. And that is just the Abomination pack - there is an additional hundred zombies coming during this year. As the best remedy is to add some diversion to the horde, I searched my bits box and found an old sprue that I had gotten for free with some purchase. On the sprue were two Zombies, and various bits and bobs to put on them - all made by Mantic Games (link). Great detail, alhthough their zombies are closer to what I would term Ghouls.
I then set about snipping and snapping, and managed to diversify eight of Guillotine Games' zombies - without them becoming too unrecognizable. The bodies are almost exactly the same size, so the conversions were easy and great fun. 
As with all my minis, the intention is to get them ready as quickly as possible and then, at some time, to return and add a few details (especially to the bases - they are much too clean atm).

The second victim of my conversion spree was this fatty. He lost a hand (truly, it has disappeared on my cluttered table) and gained a vicious looking mechanical gizmo.

 He will henceforth be know only as "Fatty Krueger", due to a certain family resemblance:

Maybe I should ahve given him a fancy hat as well :-).

Anyways, thanks for reading - if you found the post interesting then any comments or tips are greatly appreciated!
Until the next time; stay safe and prepare to slaughter Zombies!

All the best,
