Zombicide Custom Character #1

Ok, here begins my custom characters.  First up is a Police Officer. He's a basic cop that was responding to an incident at a local store where a robbery was in progress.  Little did he know that the alarms tripped inside were due to the zombies...

He may start with only a Starting Pistol, but he gains quite nicely by getting a steadier hand with +1 to dice roll to ranged or +1 die to combat.  I mean he does have steady hands and all.  Like his partner, his red skills are identical.  The ability to use sniper with a piston at a longer range can be quite nice in Ultra Red Mode.

Stay tuned for the rest of the team as they are previewed throughout the week.

Don't forget to print him out and give him a try!

Police Squad...

Here is your new group of survivors for Zombicide.  You have two Police Officers, a Motor Cop, two Riot Cops, and a Police Sergeant.   Watch for their stats soon!

The figures are from Heroclix and are all Gotham police figures. All have been rebased.

Zombicide Custom Weapon Card

Ok folks, here's my first custom card.

The rules:

When equipped, survivor gains Toughness.  When equipped by a Riot Cop, survivor also gains the Knockback skill.  The numbers on the card are indicative of the knockback skill, since this item does no damage.  Currently, Riot Shields are only found as starting equipment.

Let me know what you think...

Zombicide custom skill

Knockback:  this character can attempt a knock back as an action.  Roll a 3+ and you are able to push one walker or runner out of the current zone.  This cannot be done on a fatty or abomination unless the Phalanx skill is applied.

Tell me what you think.  This is a skill gained when certain characters are wielding a "riot shield".

Zombicide Custom Survivors

Ok, I've figured out that the card size is 12CM by 21CM.  Gotta love metrics.

I'm currently making a team of 6 custom characters.  As I play test them, I will post pictures of them them, plus their stat cards.  I am not going to be making Zombivor versions of these characters.    As neat as the concept is, I'm not using the zombie version of the characters as players.  they will be used when the character dies and returns.

To start, I will give you a hint as to what these characters are:

"Jinkies it's the Cops!"

Season 1 has arrived...

The final minis from the first kickstarter arrived.   I only picked up Eva and Marvin...  I missed out on Ivy and Claudia.  I now think I want them too...  The whole "gotta have them all" springs to mind.  They are good.

Any yes, I am dissapointed in the idea that GG had to change the minis because Miramax said so.  Well, at least we have Ash and Chuck still in good.   I wonder how Season 2's extra special minis will hold up to lawsuits....

I say feed the suits to the zombies and let us have our fun!

it's been a while...

I know, my blog has become distant.  I've been very busy as of late.  I've got several projects in the works and working on one, makes others fall behind.  Plus daily life gets in the way too.
On a side note, remind me to never read an "enchant weapon" scroll while holding a +7 weapon.  it hurts.....
