IntroductionAs many of my regular readers will know, I tend to prefer regular civilians over heavily-armed rednecks for my games of All Thing Zombie. I also draw a certain amount of inspiration from the scenes I see when just walking about my local town (though I will stress that any resemblance between my models and anyone I know is entirely accidental and unintentional).

The Crossing PatrolAt around 9am and again at 3pm near any primary school in the UK, crossing patrols are a common sight. These are volunteers, often middle-aged, who halt the traffic and thus assist the children to cross roads. They are often referred to as "lollipop men", though near us they are mostly women.
The right arm is from Gripping Beast's "Dark Age Warriors" kit (!); it originally held a spear. I cut the spear away, drilled the hand out and added a sign made from brass rod tipped with a circle of plasticard.
