Ruh Roh, Rombies! Part One
I have been in love with Hasslefree Miniatures’ (http://www.hfminis.co.uk/) Scooby Doo Gang as Zombie Fighters figures since the first time I saw them. I knew if I ordered them I would find a reason to use them eventually but it wasn’t until KublaCon 2012 when I acquired a HorrorClix Undead Cosmonaut that I knew I had to make a diorama. Okay, a little clarification on my use of “acquired”. Necron99 actually picked it up as part of his Friday night flea market haul. Immediately upon seeing it, I grabbed it and said he was needed to face my Scooby Gang. Being a man who appreciates aesthetics as much as he does classic cartoons he graciously agreed to let me have the radiated figure. Then it was a a simple matter of ordering a Zombie Dog Walker and Deep Sea Diver (would need some conversion) from Reaper Miniatures and my cast was complete.
Now, if they were going to be fighting zombies, real zombies as opposed to guys in rubber masks, then their Mystery Machine would really need an upgrade. I have found that Daemonscape (http://www.daemonscape.com/index.html) is a good place to start for science fiction vehicles and after some looking around settled on the armed and armored, four track Snow Cat.
Now that I had the pieces assembled it was time to plan out the display board and start painting but that can wait for another post.
