The knocked over chairs are a nice touch, Gemgames and also like the bamboo bushes of yours DrMathias.

Not usually a fan of Zombies but in this case...Excellent scene and well painted.

With giant toad and antagonists, love the flags/banners especially.  And must know where the toad comes from?

The lighting in the Zombie Strip Club is a nice touch and really add to the scene (along with those knocked over chairs).  I also like the matching bases. The more I look at this entry, the more I like it! Very well done.

It's never easy when you draw against Dr. Mathias though  ;) Loads of top quality details packed into that scene.  I'm drawn to the ladybird back banner and great colour choices on the Hikigaeru armour.
Now you see that evil will always triumph because good is dumb...

The toad is from Tengu Models:

Really nice casting, and fun to paint.

The Eureka Miniatures rabbits are the last of the bunch, I finally finished the warren :)

Great bit of storytelling with the chairs, excellent color and really clean linework around the thongs. Very well done!!!

Gotta say it'sthe first time in my life I have had to decide on the relative merits of zombie pole dancers and samurai rabbits fighting a toad.

Oh wow. Dr Mathias, your set is beautifully painted and staged (as always). I particularly love the work on the frog and your amazing metalwork on the swords. Congratulations! It's always an honor to lose to you! :D

I was looking into bamboo for an earlier set, but couldn't make it work. What did you use there?

I have a bamboo tutorial in the 'Arboreal' link in my signature.

Truth told though I bought a bunch of commercial a few months ago, and if it had been on the market a few years ago I wouldn't have spent the time making it:

It looks pretty good IMO, I'll mix it in with the stalks I have made that I haven't mounted yet.

Where did the zombie strippers come from?
