Board of The Living Lead Comp Entry part 2

In my haste to get the piece finished I took photos of it being painted without checking them and basically a lot of them where no good. Anyhow here is the finished piece. With figures added. Things like the barrels and bin bags etc are removable so I can re use them.

    Danger lurks when they leave for supplies I presume? :)

      Its a really good series just waiting for the final book to be released to see what the conclusion is.

  17. Great work, the corrugated iron is really effective, and I love the rope to get to the top. I mean zombies could climb ladders but rope, no way.

  23. Loving the finished product. Shame about the photos not all being good, so couldn't see remaining stages. That rope ladder is one of my favourite features there. I think you've painted this whole piece well too, as to me, they all look realistic in design and colour. Nice job
