Zombie Kill Team Alpha

Hazmat Team, to take on the encroaching Zombie Hordes. But are they there to destroy the undead or kill the living?!


Another project! Well yes and no. Had these figures for about three years, and decided a few months back to get my Zombie Project off the ground. The plan was paint one of these a week, so about four months later finally finished them today.

Figures are Hasslefree and base toppers from Fenris.





Despite their militaristic type appearance, I decided on good 'ole Hazmat yellow (or ochre in this case) for the suit. Plus I'm painting enough camo on 20mm figures. The visor had to be green. This was a nod to Gerry Anderson's UFO series. Those of a certain age will recall that the aliens had green visors on their space helmets (the helmet contained green fluid?). This hid the face, which I always found slightly sinister at the time (though I would have been six or seven when I first watched it!).

The plan is to add more Survivors at a steady pace and of course Zombies. The 20mm Modern will still take precedence at the moment.

That's it for now more to follow......

  1. Nice work! Really like that green on the visor and it works perfectly with the yellow suits.

  2. Excellent painting - the tones on the hazmat suits, & the quality of the visors is great.

    1. Thank you PC. I used Foundry Ochre triad for the suit. But put a wash over the base colour of Vallejo Burnt Umber. Then base colour again. After adding the C highlight I added Vallejo Buff to give a slightly washed out look. the visor is Foundry Forest Green. Glad you like them.
