I am still trying to figure out where to set my Zombie campaign - I am still undecided if it will be the U.S., the U.K. or even Australia.
As I also want to include some military figures in the game I am spoiled for a bit of choice - TAG, Eureka, MOFO (Gripping beast) and others all make figures for the three nations I am contemplating.
I like the look of the TAG British:
So - spoiled for choice, I can't make up my mind. Maybe I could have a setting where troops from around the world have gathered to help put down the zombie uprising? A kind of military force that is part of a world organisation.
To help me in the process for making a decision I have been looking up health organisations, such as the CDC, that I can include in the game for background information, news reports and even as part of the cure.
I found it interesting the Australia doesn't have an equivalent for disease control: the U.S. has CDC, the U.K. has HPA... yet Australia is only now starting to think that "we need a disease control organisation'. I sure hope the zombie plague doesn't come down under, as it would spread far and wide in next to no time.
