Zombicide!: Mantic Zombie Mutations III (Walkers)

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 next batch was perhaps the most fun conversions.
The two Zombies on the left are standard Walkers, but have each received a Zombie head from the Mantic sprue:

These head s are much more detailed (and larger) and gives the zombies a very different expression. Good fun - although I wish I had painted the left guy as a composer - there seems to be somthing Bethoovian about his hairstyle.
The Zombie on the right is a mixture of three different models - Walker legs, Mantic body, and a Runner head. Also something completely new - I really love the way he is grasping after his next vitim in a classic Zombie style. Good face as well.
