Zombicide - Black Plague
Cul’nar and Sha’keel from the Adrian Smith Black Plague HATE box.
“Mine is a holy road.”
Cul’Nar secretly belongs to the Earth Mother cult. His position as a bodyguard and executioner to the elite of the Great City rely on his keeping this a secret. Alas, his devotion to that ancient religion was discovered. Exposed and hunted through the city, Cul’Nar had little choice but to cut a bloody swath through those who dared oppose him. Now, guided by his goddess’s whispers in his ear, Cul’Nar walks a solitary path towards destiny.
“My blade will speak for me.”
A spawn of the TYRANT, Sha’Keel was noted for her ferocity after killing three of her sisters in the breeding pits of the red tower. Spared from the TYRANTS harem, her skill with the blade was rewarded with a position in the house guard. After biting out her commanders throat she was made dumb by the priests and their knives and sent out away to the furthest borders of the TYRANTS lands. She now wanders the wastes, her weapons for hire. Her hatred of authority undimmed.
Group shot of the heroes painted so far, Little Prince (Gipi), Mizar (Bonner), Donna Carlotta (Gipi), Ann (Core box).
I love the game addition, but the medieval fantasy setting is really not my thing.
Grin (The Joker) an additional Necromancer - Kickstarter Exclusive bonus mini.
Scowl (Batman) the Dark Knight - Kickstarter Exclusive bonus mini.
The base on Scowl was a bit warped, stuff like this really gets on my nerves (yes I am that way), so I decided to rebase my minis. I took a negative using milliput from a cobblestone base. I then stamped it to the final base again using milliput as the base material. The same was used with the KS 1st Player Coin to create Ann’s base.
Dr Stormcrow, one of my favourite sculpts of the KS exclusive promo figures. The sheer amount of detail on this miniature is simply breathtaking! For the base I used again my milliput negatives...
Three ghost from the “No rest for the wicked” box.
The Swamp Troll Abomination. I really like the Cthulhu Deep One look, since the Troll emerges from water tiles I gave the mini a glossy finish. I also rebased it o a smaller oval base since the tiles becomes very crowded once you reach orange or red level...
The Abominarat, the King of Ratz Necromancer and a Swarm of Ratz from the “No rest for the wicked” box. I removed the spikes from the big fat rat (I really dislike the spike look of zombies) and applied some extra glossy varnish over all blains.
The base is an oval mdf base, stones are created by milliput and a texture roller.
The big rat together with some old GW plastic and metal rats. I am planning to use the giant rats as zombie runner.
The King of Ratz Necromancer and a Swarm of Ratz from the “No rest for the wicked” box.
A Swarm of Ratz from the “No rest for the wicked” box.
The two Fatty Burster sculpts from Green Horde.
Mizar from the Paul Bonner box
Gipi Guest Box
Survivors of the Gipi box
Donna Carlotta from the Gipi box
Pipino from the Gipi box
Celia la Santa from the Gipi box
Brother Tucker, Theo and Baldric
Shalheira from the Edouard Guiton guest box
“They may not die, but they can be stopped.” Shalheira’s people came down from the north during the last war. While many of her people left again, moving back to more comfortable climes, Shalheira stayed. She is in service to a human lord, hunting to feed human mouths and fighting to save human lives. All this is for a reason, however. Shalheira’s people have seen these zombies before. Long ago, her people fought them and won, but it was a hard victory. If the zombies make it all the way back north, Shalheira’s people may not survive. She fights here to save now only human lives, but elfin.
Ann the somehow crazed Nun of the core Black Plague box. Very quick paint job to get her on the table as fast as possible.
Another idea, why not paint the Black Plague Zs as White Walkers from Game of Thrones?
Rebased White Walker Zombies, another really fast quick paint.
Wrath of Kings Mod?
Dragon Legion Keeper
Well, having said that I am not so much into the original BP setting, maybe I can do something about it? I am tinkering with the idea of a Wrath of King adaptation/ mod.
I could easily create all the heroes by using WoK minis, I am not sure about the Zombies. Maybe I a using other WoK minis and just presume that they are all under a spell of an evil Goritsi?
The cards could look like these:
Elsis with her typical Pelagarth tough skin can be used as a Samson stand in.
Dragon Legion (as Clovis), Shalheira (as Silas), the Shield of Taelfon (as Baldric) and Elsis (as Samson).
Iron Lotus (as Nelly)
Red Willow (as Ann)
Game of Thrones Mod?
IMO Black Plague fits also GoT, consequently I created some Survivor cards just for the fun of it!
