The funniest thing of all, receiving a painted model of yourself as a zombie! This is exactly what happened to Axtlinge (aka Axt) with the final figure of the fab four. I chose to make Axt a rugby player because he loves the all blacks and the zombie pieces I had suited it. First the legs weren't proper shorts and seemed to have some extra padding/protection which makes more sense for a proper contact sport. Secondly the hand with the thumb pointing up reminded me of the Haka dance that his favourite rugby team the All Blacks perform. I had a bit of help from Abraxis who sent me a couple photos of Axt so I could get him right without giving away the secret - thanks buddy!
As with the others, I built up the base with filler. The flock is the same as used on my figure but underneath I gave it a coat of brown paint instead of green to try and show how rugby fields are usually more torn up than footy fields. I used some bits of medical gauze twisted and glued to create the long beard and pony tail. I also used a little water effects for the blood on the recently ripped off leg he's carrying around ;^) Hope you enjoy them pal!
