Zombies in "samurai" style?!

That's an unusual idea but why not. It's gonna take a huge amout of effort and time though. I think you won't be able to do that without plenty of greenstuff... Neutral

I knew a componie which produces terracotta-warrior-zombies, but unfortunately, I forgot the name. Allthough this is not really samurai-like, it could be interesting.

I'll have a look in the web, if I find I'll tell you Wink

And you could ask cianty, he did some ronin conversions.

I remember that a staffmember from the local GW is doing a Nippon-army. I'll see if I can take a few pictures.

So, found the terracotta-zombies:
http://www.johnjenkinsdesigns.com/28mmTWZ.htm

They are from the USA, so shipping could be expansive, but there is also a French onlineshop selling them:
http://pagesperso-orange.fr/fgminiatures/Catalogues/Catalogues%2025mm/25jenkins.htm

I hope this can inspire you.

I would prefer to stick to Citadel models, heck, Warhammer models. And yes, I am the source to ask about it! Very Happy

GW has in fact produced A LOT of asian-style models - including zombies. Shamelessly I'd like to advertise my Mordheim project Border Town Burning (see signature) which is placed in the Cathayan Borderlands (Cathay = GW Asia/China).
I have collected a lot of material about Cathay from GW. I have also collected a lot of information on asian-like models so I can tell you: GW did produce "Undead Samurai". These can be found on said website (go to Gallery). For convenience. here they are:



I found them at stuff of legends: http://www.solegends.com/citcat89/c891307undsamurai-m.htm

So I'd suggest checking the default auction site and buy some original GW Zombie Samurai models (check the British sellers!).

Oh, and if you ever have pictures of your Samurai Zombies, please send them to me and I will put them on the website!

Gosh... Cianty and Erk, you guys ARE good. I could NEVER have found those models...

See, that's what's so cool about a forum, there's always some guy who has an answer to the hardest question.

Good job to both of you (and especially to our Cathay expert, Cianty! Wink )

You could put him on a plate Twisted Evil

Chmm, yes, bad joke, I would simply take a dog, maybe none of this pitbull-like ones, but a dog is still a dog.
Or you take a monkey, that would be cool I think.

Yes, why not, the warhound you can add to your warband via usual trading can also be represented by a monkey.

Lol, thanks for the idea, but I still think i'm taking the undead monkeys =D
I have an idea, please tell me what you think;
I giving them a dire wolf head, a little edited, but still with the big teeth.

For the body i use a skeleton body, and i make it slithly fleshier and more gore with putty.

The arms will be ogre arms, made hairier and things

and I still have to look for nice legs..

what do you guys think?

<edit> and I will paint them in a bright brown color =D
