15mm in '15... probably

Whilst planning other modern day conflicts on my non-zombie blog I have been looking at the 15mm zombies sold by Rebel Minis and Khurasan Miniatures.

 The more I look, the more I am tempted to get some.

Rebel Minis sell 22 zombies (with 11 poses) for $11.99US and would be a good way to get lots of zombies to kick it all off, and Khurasan sells 20 zombies (with 20 poses) for $15.99.

The Khurasan zombies are a bit more expensive for two less zombies, but they are very nice minis.

Khurasan also makes police and scientists, as well as survivors with improvised weapons, something that is a must if I am to set the game in Australia. Having tight gun laws Downunder means it is unlikely to have people running around with AK74s or M14s when the zombies apocalypse finally arrives.

Rebel Minis do make a lot of civilian types that would be useful for any game, as are the police figures.

Khurasan police - I can almost get away with these as VicPol thanks to the new uniform

Rebel Minis civilians

Rebel Minis police - I quite like these too

The reason behind using 15mm is to get maximum use of my Eureka 15mm modern Aussies - I should be able to use them for at least three different settings, if not four or five that I can think of without putting too much thought in to it.

 As I would have the game set in Australia I would need the civilians to not have firearms, thus the comments made in this post.

 But this is all in the planning stage, and I still intend to play some 28mm games a mentioned in my previous post.

Great choice mate, been doing 15mm for a while now, best thing I ever did, I have a small collection of zombies myself, so you get the big thumbs up from me.

Go for it dude, you know you want to.

15mm zombies may well be the way to go. At least you could get a lot of terrain on the table. I look forward to seeing this progress.

Don't forget the Khurasan werewolf sets. Civvies with shotguns very passable farmer types.
