Berserker Fatties - Fast Food Addicts Bob and Larry

Hello all,
This being 'conference-season' and all, I hardly get to paint anything. Luckily, I've got a backlog of un-uploaded miniatures that I hope you wont mind looking at.
The two today are Fatties (and I do apologize for their name, but it is the official designation) of the Berserker type:

Zombicide, Toxic, zombie, prison, outbreak, fatty, painted

 Bob and Larry were both prison convicts - and I do imagine them being buddies - when the zombiefying disease descended on the jail they were in.

While the blue colour isn't 'canon' in the Zombiecide universe, I needed a colour that would instantly be clear and mark them as Berserking zombies. Having used green already for the toxics, blue seemed a natural choice. It works okay - especially against the orange prison uniforms.

We've tried using the Toxic and Berserker zombies a few times, but to be honest they only seem to complicate the game in a way that doesn't really make sense. Perhaps We will use them more in the future, but now, with all the new rules, boards, etc. there seems to more than enough fun with the basic game.

Booo!

Here Bob and Larry have found a nice used car salesman, somewhat surprised with requests.

All the best,

    1. Hi Michael,
      Glad you liked the blue. I tried metal at first, but it didn't really 'pop' enough :-).
      Also, just realized these arn't Toxic zombies but Berserker zombies. Silly me.
      All the best,
      Kasper

  2. completely agree with Michael, the blue really makes the orange pop. Also the one with the white hair kind of reminds me of Ron Pearlman's character from Sons of Anarchy... if he got all dead and bloaty of course.

    1. Hi Ghengis,
      Great to hear some more support for the blue - I'll stick with that then :-),
      And I agree with you on the Pearlman-vibe, I always found him to be somewhat disturbing so a bloated, dead, brain-eating version should be suitably scary!
      All the best,
      Kasper

  3. Yeah, another vote to stick with the blue, it really works well. Nearly time for Season 3 to start too!

    As a prize, have a Liebster award for your excellent zom-blog :D
