My BirthdayIt was my birthday last Friday and amongst the socks and handkerchiefs, my loving family gave me a box of Wargames Factory's latest product: the zombie vixens.
Technically, I had bought this myself, but when the wife saw them delivered just a day or two before my birthday, she snaffled the box and hid it so that it could be gift-wrapped and handed back to me on my special day. Mind you, it's a good way of ensuring that I get what I want!
The BoxThis isn't going to be an in-depth review of the product; if you're looking for that then I apologise in advance. Instead, it's just an initial reaction and my first 2 painted examples.
Others have already described Wargames Factory's packaging for this particular product as "lurid". I completely agree with this assessment and am slightly despondent that they felt this to be an appropriate selling point. After all, female zombies would make up roughly half of the population, wouldn't they? I known that I've been wanting more variety in my collection and I imagine that a number of other zombie gamers have also been awaiting this set for the same reasons. There's no need to try to invoke necrophilia!
The models themselves are definitely on the skinny side (no pun intended). Most are acceptable as reasonably healthy young women (well, before they became zombies, obviously!), though the one in the evening dress is much too anorexic for my liking. My main concern here is that the finished figures may prove fragile in use. So, they're not perfect - but I'll make the models up and use them anyway, won't I!
