I have to admit, of the 3, this is the first I actually like enough to want to buy him.

 Just got eight painted master castings returned to me today.The pictures I have posted dont do the miniatures justice.The purple glasses are not as purple in person.Very cool miniatures.James has done a great job on them.The large construct one he has done in a green colour scheme is very neat.He went with the Abomination from the Hulk movie for inspiration.

 The Zombies have turned out very well as has the Flesh Golem.

 More pictures in a few weeks  ;D.

They'll have to be pretty damn special zombies, there are far too many Zombie lines out there for me to have the slightest interest, but Flesh Golem's sound tasty.

 I agree with you about the choice of Zombie's on the market place but choice is good.Zombies are cheap points wise so you need lots of them.Having loads of the same is no fun.
 The Flesh Golem is pretty cool.He is in a running position.Fresh off the Mad Doctors Table and heading for the door.

Glenn, I disagree only because of the chatter on frothers, the Forum of Doom, Reaper forums, etc. about Zombies.  For people who are really into them, there are not enough sculpts, ever.

I guess if you're playing a zombie survival game, and you want the feel of a parking lot PACKED with zombies, then you really need all that variety. 

It's a popular genre, but like you Glenn, I don't need all of them.  Of course, I don't need miniatures at all, and I can stop buying them any time I want.   BULL!!

Hello

Actually I would like to see some good sculpts of sci-fi zombies with rifles and such. The selection now is not as good as I would like.
