So I've been watching a lot of zombie movies, reminiscing over my old Sylvanian log, and playing a ton of medieval II total war. As a result I started thinking about an interesting concept that I haven't seen before, which is the idea of a zombie outbreak occurring during the 1400's. The plan is the create an army of zombie survivors from various countries, who have put aside their differences to fight in the name of humanity. As with my Sylvanian log I'm planning lots of undead-killing conversions to drive the theme home, and I will likewise be using the new Empire rules to represent the army.
I'm super excited about this project, and as a result I'm giving it it's own log (while my "Dan paints everything" log will continue for all of my other stuff) and have already ordered a bunch of Perry WoTR plastics and mantic undead models (which will fit the scale much better than GW's stuff).
The first unit up will be a unit of Milanese mounted crossbowmen, which I'll be using in-game as outriders. I've got two put together so far, but I'll be waiting for the undead goodness to arrive before converting the other 3 in the unit. For now, here's a M2:TW screen shot of the inspiration:
I'll be taking pictures of some eBay models tonight for my other log, so I'll snap some of the WIP models to put up here tonight.
