Girls night out... at the post office


V and Tia are a couple of Hip- Hop dancers who live in Gray Haven. They are saving money to move to New York, but in the meantime they post weekly dance instructional videos on their YouTube channel. Their Stamina and agility really paid off when they had to stake a 200 year old vampire outside of a Thortons on I-80 one night on a return trip from Chicago.


I took quite a bit of time working on these two, I especially like the way V's sunglasses and MARPAT BDUs turned out. (my first attempt at both) Both girls are modeled with thongs peeking out, so I had to paint them. 





Sammie Mattews loves fashion, shopping and social media. So when zombies invaded her favorite mall, she accessorized a black SMG and an oversized bag (for extra magazines and lip gloss) and went about her business.

#Zomapocsales OMG Aero is offering 50 off to anyone who helps clear out the z's from the store security gate. I hope they still have that pink top in my size!

I painted this one based off my daughters request for a model with purple hair. A yellow dress then seemed the best choice for balance. all three of these girls are from Copplestone Castings "Babes With Guns" set.


And now the post office:




As promised- finished shots. There is glass in the windows and doors (plastic sheet actually) but you cant really tell in these pics. The interior was detailed with post office posters I found on the web and boxes from Tommyguns paper terrain. The floor is patterned scrapbook paper. 

Thanks for looking, Q and C welcomed!

  1. The minis look great and I love the post office, it reminds me of the post office in Walkertown NC (I'm not making that name up, but wouldn't that be a great name for a zombie game town?). I'd have to go get the mail from a PO box there and there was this really creepy faulty light over the PO box area and it would do that strobe thing you see in horror movies. More than once I'd hit the front door at a full speed run because I just knew there was a zombie or an ax murderer after me.

    1. Heck yeah, thats a great zombie apoc town name! You were probably in more danger of crashing through the door than anything else. Great story cause we have all been there, irrationally scared into flight by something benign.

  2. Fantastic work all around, but I think my favorite thing is the painy job you did on Tia's blue jeans.
