28mm 'not' Michonne


Still buoyed with the news that my copy of the third series of the 'Walking Dead' is but a month or two away from been delivered to 'Awdry Towers' it seemed churlish not to get this second set done having completed the 'Post Apocalyptic Family', earlier in the week. 



As with the previous set, 'Michelle – Human Survivor' is a loosely veiled incarnation of Michonne, a character from  the 'Walking Dead' and comes complete with a couple of pets!  It will not surprise many to hear that the sculpts are good and clean with very little flesh as seems to be the norm with the wonderful work from 'Studio Miniatures'


Michonne appears very briefly at the end of the second series as Andrea, seemingly surrounded and out of ammunition awaits her fate in the woods following the chaotic escape from Hershel's farm - this of course will mean very little to anyone who hasn't seen the program!  Drawing my reference directly from the program has been problematic this time as even a cursory 'google' search  has the potential to contain spoilers for the third series, but it would appear that our katana wielding heroine maintains her grisly companions as a form of defence.


The sculptor has obviously decided to have fun with the pets creating some truly revolting animated corpses; one complete with a beer belly, an affliction I can relate to of late!  Still at a push I can use these as additions to the growing horde, taking the tally to sixteen - just another fourteen to go then!

  1. Great work again. You'll do the whole main cast in a blink of an eye.

  2. Cool! Are you planning to have the 'pets' on chains like the Walking Dead character's companions?

    1. I did think about that briefly, but dismissed it as an unnecessary addition - that and a lot of extra hard work!

  3. Really nice work and great additions. Everything you add to this project has a danger of side tracking me!

  8. Excellent work! I keep resisting the temptation not to buy the 'not The Walking Dead' characters. But alas my determination is faltering. Particularly if they keep adding characters. Michonne is one of great characters of the series after Rick Grimes, both in the TV series and the graphic novels/comics.

  13. Nice job Michael, You'll find this version though the same character based more so on the comics than the tv series. The character is still very cool and has slowly become a favourite of mine.

    1. Thank you Simon, I've been tempted to grab a couple of the graphic novels.

  14. Excellent! Disgusting, but excellent!

  15. You capture the character well Michael. You should pick up the comics they are sufficiently different from the TV show that they're different stories.

    1. Thank you Robert, I must admit I quite fancy grabbing a couple to check out the style of the graphic novels.

  17. You are really getting into this Michael. I noticed that beer belly in the side view and thought "Yep, that's an American" Well at least he won't be able to sit in front of the telly on his arse all day cramming crips into his face whilst drink Pabst Blue Ribbon Beer.

    1. I think that will be enough for the time being, I need to get back on track - now pass the crisps and beer. ;)
