So i’m wanting to join the zombie herd, in the process of sculpting a prosthetic for the exposed part of my face. I have a full torso zombie prosthetic which ill choose the best bits of and expose those.

I have a RWA 1mm ABS tk kit which i am going to butcher, criminal I know! 

Will add pics as and when progress is made :o)

Ok, made some progress on this lately. The armour is all built and fitted to myself. Got to weather, paint and zombie it up. 

I’ve also been working on making a latex prosthetic I can stick on one side of my face so I don’t have to wear a mask (too claustrophobic) the test piece literally took less than an hour to make and paint and it has proven that it’s going to work and work well. It’s just a rough go and not the one I will be using, but the pics show that when done properly it will look just as good as a mask under the helmet.

And if it wasn’t obvious, there will be a blast hole in the helmet exposing that part of my face (well that’s the plan lol)

started adding the prosthetics in tonight, sticking them directly to the armour so I don’t have to wear anything or worry about it moving or being in the right place to match the hole 😊

Been using a dremel to distress and weather before applying paint.

Hi katie. It’s looking great. Some lovely details on your armour. Good idea with you facial prosthetic, the latex masks gets hot quickly. Looking forward to seeing you kitted up.

Hi Katie.

Great work on your Deathtrooper.

Your armour fits you well, no issues there.

Great personal touches to your kit, the wires and circuit greeblies are a nice touch and all of your exposed parts look matching. 

I’m happy with you to put this in for clearance with your GML.

You may want to add some weathering to your under suit, with a little dirt and gore!

I’m looking forward to the 3 of us IWG zombies heading out together at a troop soon, as I hope you are. 

Welcome to the Zombie Crew!

Thank you Colin! It’s been a lot of fun. I will get the undersuit weathered before the weekend 👍
