All we want to do is eat your brains...

It's not unreasonable.

Oh wait, yes it is.

Zombies!

One word that gets most miniature gamers in a frenzy - some because they hate them and some because they are worryingly too well prepared for the forthcoming Zombie Apocalypse.

I like Zombie games, from Zombies!!! by Twilight Creations:


Through to Last Night on Earth from Flying Frog:


Both are very different types of game, Zombies!!! probably needing house rules to get the most out of it whereas LNOE is a fantastic cinematic Zombie experience, the game is tailored to feel like a proper Zombie film, with excellent artwork throughout and it even comes with a soundtrack.  The miniatures are also quite good, evoking the character of the game very well.

Being a bit of a computer geek as well, I have to mention the most awesome Zombie game ever made, Left 4 Dead and its sequel:


It is without a doubt the most entertaining co-operative game I have ever played, bar none.  Call of Duty, Battlefield 19-whatever, none of them can match up to the fun you get with a couple of friends when you're playing as a Zombie knocking some pitiful human off the side of a hospital roof.  It's glorious.  The original game's maps have been ported over into the sequel as well (along with the characters) for added entertainment.

Next up, Zombie miniatures!
