A new year and a new set of models to compare

Hey all, happy new year!  Post is a little later than I intended, but lets pretend it was intentional to happen in the new year :)

I've been putting off a set of models for a while now, mostly due to not being used to large units to put together.  Anyways, after putting together the super cheap models from Warzone I picked up on Ebay, I found I really liked them

Since I have around 80 of these, I figure I'll be busy for a long time.  While I was at it, I decided to start the Mantic models I bought for a steal.  Here is one of the Corporate guys put together.

Holy crap do I hate this model.  I'm still planning on painting it up to compare it to the Warzone model, but I'm already seeing I won't be relying on this.  Top it off that the plastic is super hard and near impossible to work (I tried to remove the waist area so I could mix and match the top and bottom halves with the zombie/ghoul parts, but it was not to be.

The zombie/ghouls, however, look fantastic.  They require some (read: a lot) of gap filling, but they are so good looking I just don't care.  I can't wait to have a group of these ready to shamble across the battlefield and annoy my opponents.  Give 'em hell, boys!

That's about it for this week.  It's a new year, filled with hobby potential.  Hope all of you take care and have yourselves a wonderful new year!


  1. I think the Mantic Corporation guy is resin or at least resin/plastic, rather than regular plastic.

    1. It could be a hybrid, I'm not sure. What I do know is i am not a fan of the sculpt or the potential for conversion! A truly hideous model. For as cheap as I got it, though, I shouldn't complain. Next time I stick with their ghouls and zombies!
