“Lewis” – Zombie Hunter

“Lewis” is another Hasslefree figure which will come as no surprise to any of you given how much I love this range.  In my vision of an apocalyptic world I see Lewis as a Zombie beheader, I rather think the sizeable axe steered me in that direction!  Accordingly the base needed a Zombie head on it so there was nothing for it but another TIM conversion.  In this instance I took a sharp blade and cut the head from the body of a figure I had.  Feel free to follow me for more tips and in depth tutorials on figure conversion! 😂😂   

The figure itself conjured up an image for me of an apocolyptic IRO, albeit that the figure is a bit more butch.  So with that in mind I gave him a couple of arm tattoos and as a tribute to the fact that IRO is a gardener added some flowers to the base.

For the benefit of scale, and based on a comment Faust recently made, I have include an additional photo, something which I might do a little more often!

  1. Excellent work TIM, the camo and tats look great. The sculpt actually reminds me of the character played by Matthew McConaughey in the film Reign of Fire

  2. Yup, he looks suitably no nonsense – if there’s a zombie apocalypse on the go he looks like exactly the kind of bloke I’d want to hide behind. Lovely work on the camo and the tats.

  3. This is the perfect kind of post-apocalypse sculpt. He looks tough and mean enough to survive (just about anywhere really). I like the camo not only because of the patterns/shapes look great, but the colors match the rest of the mini and the basing extremely well. I can see you getting better and better as you paint these minis and it is always fun to see someone improving at their craft! 🙂

  4. Ok, so where you get that 6’ tall bottle of Vallejo?! 😂

    Great job on the mini, the camo is really nice. Something I’ve yet to have to paint. I have some tats I’m supposed to do, but I keep stalling on them, as if I (likely) mess it up, the mini is going to be screwed!

    1. Haha, well I won’t be running out of that colour for a while! Painting camo is something which I found easier than I thought it would be and any mistakes are easily covered up. The tats are pressure painting but if you mess things up you can always modify the design. 🙂
