'It's the Fuzz!'

More from 'Hasslefree Miniatures', and another survivor to accompany 'The Zombie Survival Guide'.  A rather portly British Bobby armed to the teeth with a semi-automatic shotgun.  I love the idea that the survivors of a zombie-inducing plague are just ordinary people and not Hollywood 'A' list movie stars.  'Hasslefree' certainly have come up with some great sculpts and this one called, 'PC Sam Ford' is a wonderful likeness for Nick Frost's character in 'Hot Fuzz'.


Although not planned I have inadvertently managed to purchase the Frost/Pegg 28mm alter egos from two separate films;  I suppose there is nothing else for it, I'm simply going to have to buy the accompanying minis! 

Nicholas Angel: Sergeant Butterman, the little hand says it's time to rock and roll!



Meanwhile in a deserted cemetery at the far edge of the mighty metropolis, could it be that time is running out for our plucky heroes?

  5. Those zed-heads had better watch out!

    Zombie movies are a guilty pleasure of mine, rarely indulged these days due to frowning and tutting by Mrs Rosbif. World War Z was a great book, too. I haven't yet been tempted to translate the interest into gaming or painting yet.

    Lovely painting as always, Michael.

    PS. love the new banner!

  7. Thank you all, I have thoroughly enjoyed doing these latest.

    @Rosbif, I share the same guilty pleasure and I'm afraid the good Mrs. Awdry's reaction to the celluloid adventures of the undead is identical to that of Mrs. Rosbif.

  13. You seem to paint a lot of the same random miniatures that I do - I did the 'Hot Fuzz' pair I a few years go, though it predates blogging.

    Great minds...or fools?

    knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my
    newest twitter updates. I've been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.

    operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Firefox.
    Do you have any tips to help fix this problem?

  24. I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own blog and was wondering what all is required to get set up? I'm assuming having a blog like yours
    would cost a pretty penny? I'm not very internet savvy so I'm not 100% sure.
    Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. Kudos

  27. I'm impressed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across a blog that's both educative and
    engaging, and let me tell you, you've hit the nail on the head. The issue is something that too few men and women are speaking intelligently about. I'm very happy
    that I found this in my search for something relating to this.

  30. First off I want to say awesome blog! I had a quick question
    in which I'd like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your head before writing. I have had a tough time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out there. I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints? Thank you!

  36. What you have right there is a genuine spam problem. Horrible!

    What's not horrible are the Hot Fuzz/Shaun of the Dead not minis. Well done. Zomtober is also rather good.
