Zombicide!: Cardboard Tube Samurai Survivor

Hello all,
Another Survivor done! This time it is the mysterious Cardboard Tube Samurai. Now while I have no idea who this internet character really is, the mini brought a lot of extra support for the season one Kickstarter of Zombicide. So, I guess we should be grateful for the dude. Yet, it seems really odd to have a character armed with a piece of cardboard fighting Zombies. Might be the only weapon which is less functional than a pan...
The mini is actually great - one of the best faces in the bunch. A lot of character. The rest will make you regret ever deciding to open a yellow tube of paint. The black border meant plenty of yellow on black paint afterwards which may be the most difficult touch up to do.
The only thing that could have done with a bit more detail is his japanese hat on his back.

As his Zombivore version is very similar to this model, I decided to keep the blood and gore to a bare minimum, in order to better differentiate between the two.

Compared to the 'original' it looks alright:
Designer's note is brief on this guy:
By permission of Penny Arcade, Cardboard Tube Samurai is a promotional Survivor that was available to those that backed at a certain level during the Kickstarter campaign. He will be available in limited quantities at upcoming PAX conventions.

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,
