I've been re-watching season 1 (now watched all six episodes) and I'm just about to start season 2.
Anyhow some new survivor figures have been released by Studio miniatures and being in the mood decided to try this company out for the first time and ordered me the 'Dixon' Survivor.
Service was excellent arrived pretty quickly came well packed in a blister the really cool card insert 'Z-Clipz' has been pinched and being used as a bookmark.
The Dixon figure is obviously themed on Daryl for The Walking Dead series and is an excellent represntation of him it has his iconic weapon i.e the crossbow, the knife strapped to his hip, Satchel, squirrel pelts even the ear necklace is present though its hard to see.
The miniature comes in two pieces the body and the main shaft/bow of the crossbow is seperate which is great as it lets you get into the hard to reach places to paint. Very minimal flash and he came with a 30mm lipped base.
I am going to get a second figure as where the crossbow separates I want to splice in a shotgun for a bit more 'noisier' fire power and it will be a doddle to do. Hell I may get a third and give him an smg or assault rifle but we will see.
I REALLY enjoyed painting this figure it practically painted itself. I am certainly going to be picking up some more survivors and perhaps a zombie mob or two.
Big Thumbs up Studio Miniatures!
Painted him last night in one sitting having undercoated and puttied the base on Thursday evening. Mixture of pictures it was so nice and sunny I took some in the garden.
