Here are the first of the survivors from my acquisition of Season 1. They were pretty straight forward to paint. I also ordered some Battlefoam. It won't be nearly enough to hold all of my zombies, but it'll be plenty to hold my survivors from the previous two seasons and probably the third season.
For priming, I'm using Testors Flat Black (1249,) and it must have been formulated specifically for the kind of plastic used for Zombicide: It's about the most durable combination I've experienced. I gave it the old "finger nail" scratch test, and that primer just won't come off!
|This is the smaller Toxic City Mall box. Walkers in the|
sections along the bottom, and "bigs" and "fasts" in the
upper sections. Plenty of space for more!
So what does this mean? Well, I'm still going to drop my survivors into the Battlefoam for added (and pretty much redundant) protection, but the zombies get to be dropped straight into an extra box! No more searching for expensive options to house 300 zombies. The primer and paint will hold, and if it doesn't, well, these are a breeze to paint. I'm good to go.
