Thanks Pil , I'm working on the Cops right now but am struggling with all the details  :-[ I think they will turn out ok though .

I just had an idea for a Walker for my Brit themed force . I'm going to mount a Siku Mini onto some GW Sentinal legs lol or maybe see if I can get a London Taxi and do the same.

Just an undate , first up the Cops which turned out to be a bit of a disaster . I used the new GW wash which was too close in colour to the Vallejo Soviet Green that I used as a base. It also made the paint all shiny so that even after mating down you cannot really see the three shades of paint that I used on them . I might go back and highlight them again later. :-[

Next the characters , including a Foundry Sniper for the Cops and a detective with shotgun. I painted a Hooters Teeshirt for Ashley but its a bit hard to see. You can guess Who the figure on the right is supposed to be. ;) The Zombie at the front (Ray?) was also a pain to paint . I think I had four attempts before I was happy.

Some Un PC Japanese Schoolgirls . I really enjoyed painting these . I even like the Anime sized eyes on the Eureka ones.

Some more Zombies.
Rage Zombies from Westwind . These were real nice to paint and not as large as I thought they might appear to be from what I had heard .

Eureka  Zombies , I had two packets of these and thought I would bend the arms etc to get some variation , but found out they were too brittle  :o

The rest of the Westwind Zombies.

I have just undercoated some Eureka Apes and Gibbons which I am really looking forward to painting. :-*
I should be able to start playing some games now , but have to find an opponent with a sense of humour . lol

Out of the things that I have on hand I only have Ghouls left to paint . I'm going to go on a buying spree after my little trip in November . There are several lines I am eyeing up but not sure about Zombie Police and dogs at this stage.

Thanks for the other replies , :D it makes posting stuff worth while.

I think the cops turned out great! You may want to paint the eyes of the girl though, otherwise they're awesome! The zombies look good too, and the characters are definately cool! :)

Liking those. Are the cricket bats inspired by Shaun of the Dead by any chance? 8)

Indeedly so. Kev sculpted more than one not-Simon Pegg mini. Ray and Tony of not-Shaun of the Dead, and Officer Nick and PC Sam Ford of not-Hot Fuzz.

Pil , I seemed to have forgotten to paint the eyes of the lady Cop as none of the others needed doing  >:( thanks for pointing that out .

I have the figures of Nick and Sam on my desk right now . Plus a King and Queen  ;) I have also found a figure to convert to Captain Jack. :)

Reading Westphalia Chris's thread on his Tank Hunter Battlesuit reminded me that I have not taken a photo of my Robot. So I took a hasty one so excuse the quality .
The crew don't look that bad in person, but it was the first attempt on doing skin tones using the new GW inks so forgive how the eyes look  :-[ They are the crew for my Polizei-FlammPanzeranzug (cheers Chris) . I was going for a cosmonaut look but Orange may have been a better colour choice.
I cannot remmber who makes the Robot , I thought I may have got it from Amazon but cannot find it in the catalogue now.

Great work!
I love the cops and the battle robot, are those figs with the robot old GW figs?
