Zomtober 2016 Week 3 Deadlands Templar

Busy week at work this and did most the paintwork on this one last week. Went to a Batman Tournament yesterday which was awesome but I'll do a separate post about that in the week.

This is a bit of an odd model, only really in the sense that it was tricky to get hold of. I randomly found her searching for Post Apocalypse models initially and tracing it back was a disappointment as at the time it was a kickstarter only figure (2012/2013) and you couldn't actually purchase them direct from Pinnacle Entertainment 

 So I kind of gave up thinking aw well tough luck you missed that boat but then fast forward a few years later to December last year a random search on ebay and some turned up with shipping from the US. Alas the Templar wasn't amongst those listed but it prompted me to do a search and I found one! Randomly in listed on a Comic shops website in America but I HAD to have this figure so I ordered her and paid about $12 including shipping in total and here she is! Again another lingerer I have had on the paint table completed for Zomtober. I think she makes an awesome zombie hunter/survivor and also fits in nicely with my post apoc games!

  2. Yep lovely figure and well painted to boot, I think we all have figures that we desire but have missed the boat on at one time of another.

    Cheers Roger.

  5. I understand why you really wanted to have her, the details are very crisp and the sash makes her look quite unique.
    Seeing her painted like that I'd say it was totally worth the extra effort.

  21. Fantastic job, Simon. It's funny how sometimes once a miniature is unavailable it becomes a "must-have". I too have a couple items that fall into the same category.

  23. Very nice, though I do wonder sometimes if all zombie apocalypses are set in summertime, in a warm temperate or tropical zone. Judging by the amount of bare skin...
