I must admit the arrival of 24 new survivors and zombivores made me panic a bit. I really like painting these minis, but I also want to play with painted miniatures and the drastic plastic pile was becoming intimidating.
So I've devoted a couple of days to painting the brilliant minis (well, most are brilliant) from Guillotine Games.
Mack, the Car Salesman, is the first of ten I managed to get finished:
Not a Golden Demon standard but sufficient for the boardgame. For some reason the awkwardly positioned survivor Mack got a really scared look - you might be able to see it in the pictures. I considered redoing his eyes, but figured it was quite appropriate.
Mack is armed with a vicious pair of Kukris - although the travails of becoming a Zombivore has meant he lost one - along with the scared look :-).
Mack is (I think) obviously meant to resemble Nicolas Cage as Cameron Poe in Con Air - although I don't think Mr. Cage (not the best actor in my book...) was ever cool enough to employ dual kukris?
His description in Zombicide is as follows:
"Time to test drive these kukris!"
Mack’s story is like most – an ordinary, happy man until the zombies rose, forced to dig deep or die. His peaceful previous life hid his true potential – unfortunately, it took burying his wife and two daughters to bring it out. Taking a car from his lot, he began a cross country zombicide, eventually joining the motley crew of survivors. Mack’s fighting spirit has made him a precious resource for any team, and his manic grin gets even wider the worse the odds are!
All in all, a nice mini and I think he will kill his share of zombies once he is let into the action.
All the best,
