Rogue Miniatures Red Rum

So far Zombtober has been an epic fail zombie wise. My order still hasn't shown up yet despite chasing it last week grrr no zombies for me this month it seems. Anyway onto my next survivor addition

Another fantastic figure from Rogue Miniatures 'Gun' range Red Rum is based on the character Jack Torrance from the Shining by Stephen King. I'll be using him as a survivor armed obviously with an axe. Very nice casting I don't recall seeing any moldlines or flash. The pose is excellent  and I look forward to using him in my zombie games. I chose to do my own colour scheme, but its not to dissimilar to the movie version though I have no intention of using him as such anyway.

I already have 'Herb' and 'Agent Ready' and I can recommend them for great service. I shall certainly be picking up some more from this range soon.





 A little pic of Jack in the movie.

    1. Thanks Clint, I have a soft spot for survivor type figs I have got quite a big collection as well as plenty of figures which could be used for multiple genres. I think If I lined them all up they would certainly outnumber my Zombies lol!

  7. He certainly looks like Jack Nicholson. Nice paint work, Simon. As no one else has said it, how could I resist - "Here's Johnny!" You know that should be Lord Siwoc's catchphrase!
