Post Apocalypse Soldier Survivor 25mm Scale Game Miniature Figure
Filed under: Science Fiction, Horror, 25-28 mm, Zombies, Post Apocalypse
Posted by: G R @ 5:28 pm

Welcome to the apocalypse! Our hero has managed to survive the first chaotic months of the zombie plague.


A bit worse for wear (his tattered clothing speaks to some of the tight spots he has survived in the post apocalyptic world), he carries an assault rifle. He also has a semi-auto pistol in a belt holster.


A small backpack carries all of his meager possessions. A small coil of rope hangs on his shoulder.

This 25 mm scale game figure could easily assume the role of a Player Character or NPC in many role-playing games and table top war games including post apocalypse, zombie infestation, science fiction, pulp action and horror genres such as Call of Cthulhu™.

Filed under: Science Fiction, 25-28 mm, Zombies, Post Apocalypse
Posted by: G R @ 4:07 pm

The invasion was swift and devastating. The initial assault left most of the cities in ruin. But there are survivors and some of them have become resistance fighters doing what they can to fight back and inflict losses on the invaders.

Our first fighter has obtained an automatic machine pistol. But he has also discovered the ways that even primitive weapons, such as a simple Molotov cocktail, can be used against the enemy.


A second member of the underground warriors uses a military assault rifle in combat.


Both bases are detailed with debris from the urban battleground.

These 25mm scale war game miniatures can be used in a variety of post apocalyptic scenarios including alien invasions and zombie outbreaks.

Zombies in the Hospital Emergency Room 25mm Miniatures
Filed under: Science Fiction, Horror, 25-28 mm, Zombies, Post Apocalypse, Monsters, Undead
Posted by: G R @ 3:04 pm

The hospital was being swamped with critical care patients from this new flu outbreak. Our poor surgeon was in the Emergency Room when the ambulance arrived with a new batch of victims. On first glance, it looked like the patient had expired in transit. The doctor checked for vital signs, found none, and declared the patient officially dead.


And then the corpse jerked spasmodically, reached up to grab the surgeon and proceeded to take a rending bite from his arm! Now all of his patients are looking rather tasty!




He had come in to the emergency room because he had fallen and hurt his neck. The ER doctor ran some tests, put a brace on his neck and said he would be fine in a couple of days. But that all changed when one of the other ER patients went crazy and started chewing on anyone in sight!


On the plus side, his neck doesn’t seem to hurt anymore. Or maybe he was just too hungry to notice the other pains.


A few more 25mm scale zombie miniatures to add to the hordes of the walking dead!

Zombie Sightings - Baseball Fan and Star Trek Fan for 25mm War Games
Filed under: Science Fiction, Pulp, Horror, 25-28 mm, Zombies, Monsters
Posted by: G R @ 7:27 pm

Zombie alert!  Here are two of the walking dead recently sighted lurching in the shadows.

First up we have this baseball fan.  He had just arrived at the stadium to watch his favorite team play a double header.


The Cardinals were doing great this year.  But when he was trying to buy a pretzel at a concession stand, the girl behind the counter reached over and snatched his arm and started eating her way through his sweatshirt!…


Next is this member of the Star Trek fandom.  She had been so excited to attend the local science fiction convention, anxious to show off her knowledge of all things Star Trek.


But when she was wandering through the packed dealer’s room, she noticed that some of the Klingons acting as con security were behaving rather strangely, even for Klingons.


Suddenly a commotion erupted near them and everything got crazy.  One of the Klingon fans actually grabbed her and bit her hand!  Now, it turns out she was just another “red shirt“…

Be on your guard! Stay alert, stay alive!

Human Mutants of the Wasteland Post Apocalyptic Miniatures
Filed under: Science Fiction, Pulp, Horror, 25-28 mm, Zombies, Post Apocalypse, Monsters
Posted by: G R @ 10:07 am

Life in the ruins of the post apocalyptic world is hard.  It is made even harder by the lingering effects of radiation in the war-blasted citiesMicroscopic enemies in the form of biological and chemical agents lie in wait in the recesses of the devastated landscapeHuman survivors find their bodies and minds being reformed and the children of the damned enter the world barely recognizable as belonging to the same species.

Here are some of the mutated humans that roam the ruins, seeking to survive in a altered and terrifying world.  Of course, survival sometimes means preying on other human survivors.


Eyes glow with the effects of residual radiation, seeing colors beyond normal human capacity.  Muscles transform and bulge beneath skin mottled by internal ravages.  Skeletal structures morph into grotesque new forms.


Some mutants retain most of their human mental capacities, others devolve to more basic animal instincts.  A few retain the ability to use tools, although their “tools” may simply be the bones of their previous victims.


These game miniatures are sculpted in 25 to 28 mm scale.  They can provide dangerous encounters in post apocalyptic, science fiction, horror and pulp miniature war game scenarios.

Posted by: G R @ 4:11 pm

The debris-strewn urban landscape appears to be devoid of life in this post apocalyptic world.  But every soldier knows that silence never guarantees safety.  So our squad of troopers stays alert, their weapons held at the ready should any threat suddenly appear.


These battle-hardened veterans carry an assortment of automatic weapons.


They each carry a full load of equipment including plenty of extra ammo pouches.


An integral com set and targeting computer is part of their visored helmets.


A rotary multi-barrel, belt-fed gun provides heavy firepower for the unit.


This squad can be used in many military roles in science fiction games ranging from interdicting alien invasion forces to mopping up zombie hordes of the walking dead!

Posted by: G R @ 2:45 pm

The end of civilization came quickly, creating a post apocalyptic world where death floats on the winds.  Deadly radiation and toxic bio-weapons threatens to make most of the surface unlivable.

This soldier carries a radiation sensor, attempting to map out the boundaries of the rad zones.  He wears a sealed CBRW (Chemical Biological Radiation Warfare) environmental suit to protect himself as he scours the ruins.


Civilians also have adapted in order to survive in the polluted worldRespirator masks have become the absolutely top dress accessory.  Without one, life is both painful and short.

This fellow has managed to acquire a double-barreled shotgun for protection against predators (human and otherwise) that prowl the devastation.


Finally, this survivor carries a military assault rifle.


These 25mm-scale game figures can be used in a variety of game worlds including post nuclear war, pollution gone wild, alien invasion, and zombie plagues.

Office Workers Turned Zombie Hunters in Post Apacalyptic World 25mm Game Miniatures
Filed under: Science Fiction, Horror, 25-28 mm, Zombies, Post Apocalypse, Undead
Posted by: G R @ 8:00 am

Just another day at the office.  Then the zombie infection first appeared in the company’s headquarters in the customer service department. Unfortunately it took a couple of days for anyone to notice!

Then it started to spread throughout the office building (as well as the city). It was pretty rough going for a while, but some of the uninfected local national guardsmen got organized and distributed small arms to any survivors who could make it to the city armory.

Now you’ve traded your briefcase for a military assault rifle. Corporate boardroom politics and infighting has been replaced with  brutal combat against a growing zombie horde! These company workers are trying to make their way through a world tuned upside down.

Richard was Vice President of Accounting. Before the zombie outbreak, he was mostly concerned with maintaining his little corporate fiefdom, counting the beans, protecting his turf. Now he’s worried about protecting his real life. In addition to the assault rifle, he has managed to acquire a hand ax (carried on his belt) and a satchel for carrying some survival gear.


Brad was an up and coming project manager in Computer Security until the zombies made his worry about a whole different “virus” attack. His gear includes a rifle, a machete, military flashlight, and sports backpack.


Gloria loved the challenges of her Corporate Legal job, struggling to survive in a “good old boys” environment. That seems pretty inconsequential as she now turns to fighting for survival in a much realer sense. Still, she has been successful in transferring some skills such as always being aware of what is happening around you, identify the most critical threats, and eliminating said threats decisively in the new world order.


Brad had a solid track record in Marketing and Sales. Released from his high pressure company responsibilities, he can turn his attention to dealing with the walking dead. He only wish he could have dealt with some of his overly demanding customer accounts in such a direct manner. He has converted his briefcase into a shoulder satchel for holding supplies and spare clothes and carries a canteen and entrenching shovel. But he most appreciates the usefulness of his assault rifle and the pistol holstered at his belt.


These 25mm scale miniatures offer a different source of survivors struggling in a your post apocalyptic game world, whether it be zombie infestation, alien invaders, or military conflict leading to the breakdown of civilization.

Zombies - Walking Dead Want Your Brains - Halloween Horrors 25mm
Filed under: Science Fiction, Pulp, Horror, 25-28 mm, Zombies, Post Apocalypse, Monsters, Undead
Posted by: G R @ 4:00 pm

Just in time to celebrate the Halloween season, here is a batch of zombies.

Once these cursed creatures were our friends and neighbors, even our family. They led perfectly normal lives, going about the regular daily rituals. But now, they have become the walking dead, roaming the abandoned streets of nearly deserted cities and towns, constantly searching for fresh brains (well, actually any human meat will do) to consume.

Some were members of the business community, toiling away in office buildings.


Others spent their days in classes and their nights at campus parties.


You will notice that there is quite a variation in the skin tones of these zombies. I decided to give the “freshly dead” a fairly normal skin tone with some mottling.


As the zombies “age”, the flesh takes on an increasingly greyish dead tone with the “older” zombies possessing very darkened skin.


Also, the wounds on the older zombies tend to leave a darker, aged blood stain, while the blood on the recently changed is brighter.  Of course, if a zombie has fed recently, there is a presence of brighter blood as well.

Here’s hoping that none of these come “Trick or Treating” at your door on Halloween night – unless you have a bucket of fresh brains to hand out!
