Zombicide!: Survivor El Cholo Painted (Updated Pictures)

Hello all,
Managed to get some better pictures of crazy ol' El Cholo. His Zombivore version is also almost completed...

Heres the designer's note on El Cholo:
"I’m not angry, I’ll show you angry… Joder!"
No one seems to know this gruff latino’s real name but everyone calls him El Cholo.
Whether he minds, or even cares is unknown, El Cholo rarely speaks, preferring to let his twin machetes do the talking. A hardened farmhand or possibly an ex-cartel enforcer, putting Zombies down at close quarters is El Cholo's specialty, and damn! he's good at it. The survivors whisper stories of hopeless last stands and daring raids, and El Cholo walking out covered in (someone else's) blood.

• Starting with two machetes gives El Cholo a serious advantage over Zombies, including fatties. He goes straight to the fray and leaves his companions the opportunity to search for weapons. His melee skills improves over Danger Levels. From Orange level and on, he becomes a one-man army and counterbalance the machete low Dice value with extra Actions. El Cholo’s simple and heroic gameplay is great for every beginning player. No need to argue, he’s the tank.
• El Cholo is a machete ace. Since he begins with a pair of them, he doesn’t really need to Search. He doesn’t decline a Goalie Mmask, however, as it increases his already great survival abilities in hand-to-hand fighting. If he still possesses his machetes at Red level, he’s even able to chop down the Abomination... A Molotov? Who needs that anymore? If an equipment swap is needed, El Cholo is also great with a chainsaw and/or Sub MGs, providing you choose the matching Skills.
• El Cholo ain’t afraid to battle Zombie in close-combat but isn’t invulnerable. He has good synergies with shooters and those who quickly find equipment. His best friend will always be the sniper who’s able to shoot down lone targets (they hinder El Cholo) and quick opponents (they can charge him).

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,
You mig


  1. He and Chaz (Chuck Norris-like) are pretty good melee fighters but far from being invulnerable : both of them died in my last game (check my blog if you want to read it).

  2. Howdy Ulu,
    True dat :-). But even though El Cholo is a beast in hand-to-hand, all survivors will be defeated by the zombies unless they are lucky and prepared. And that is one of the reasons I really love Zombicide :-).
    Nice blog btw :-), shame about the cellphone pictures. Also, not sure whether there was a special rule in your scenario, but normally there can be only one Abomination on the board at a time. Might have made it a bit easier for you :-)
    All the best,
