Jolene


This is "Cyrise" from the Foundry Street Violence range, but I'm calling her "Jolene" which just sounds more Southern.  She's got a big pistol on her left hip, an SMG, and a knife and grenade(!) on her right hip.

Okay, I know there are a lot of zombie gaming enthusiasts, and I've got a question.  I need to bulk up my repertoire of zombies for my upcoming ATZ campaign.  I have the zombies from Wargames Factory already, but they look more like "zombie extras."  I'm looking for some front-row zombies, available in the US.  Suggestions?

Michelle, Survivor


I like this miniature for several reasons.  First, you don't get a lot of modern/post-apocalyptic figures that depict minorities.  Second, you don't find a lot that depict women.  Third, of the ones that do, many rely pretty heavily on racial stereotyping. 

So, this figure, which is actually from the old Dark Age miniatures game, depicts a minority woman who looks pretty bad-ass, and not like she's from a Krumm cartoon.  I named her after an old school friend with whom I continue to keep in touch.
