31 Days of the Walking Dead - Day 08

On day eight, the undead arrive in style.

This model is a stylin' ride led by a ghoulish taskmaster and pulled along by a foursome of weapon-limbed flesh-cravers. Add to that the harmonious bellows and screams coming from the heap of the gored and mindless zombies writhing about the spacious cargo-hold of the flatbed.

For me, aesthetically this is a must have piece for any tabletop zombie horde. The sprues, like with many of GW's models, bear many extra bits and pieces. You are given quite a few options of how to arrange the model so no two have the potential to be the same. You get a few variations as to the look of the ghoul and the mule zombies. You also get a couple options as to what kind of "weapon" you want to adorn upon the back of your "Death Wagon", as my fiance calls it. You have the choice of either the undead bale fire or a bell with which to summon the legions of the undead. There is a lot of detail on this army centerpiece and it can be fun to put together.

However I only recommend this model as a building endeavor to those that are willing to put in some slightly frustrated elbow grease. When I was assembling my Corpse Cart I had a hard time of getting the zombie pile and ghoul to fit into the bed of the wagon but with all said and done I am very pleased with the outcome.


  1. I have never seen that before. It is awesome.

  2. Wow that's a long long long long way from the old Citadel or Grendel Undead chariots.
