Plants Vs Howks Zombie


Customiser Howks has customised Zombie from one of the most addictive and big cult following Plants Vs Zombies. The figure was created as a birthday present for a good friend of Howks, using an existing base figure, Milliput (a two part epoxy putty) and Green Stuff (by Kneadatite) which Howks painted using a mix of Vallejo model colour paints and Games Workshop Citadel paints. Putting his own twists on the Zombie.

look a little more like my friend. I basically added facial hair (beard, moustache, eyebrows), his hair underneath his favourite flat peak hat, the hat itself ( I even went as far to paint the Vans logo onto it) and his little ponytail too.

The standard figure is wearing a shirt an tie under a coat/blazer and smart casual shoes which is not the typical wardrobe that my mate wears so I used a dremel to remove the cuffs of the jacket, the sole of the trainers and to reshape them and then to remove the tie and collar before re-sculpting them all to look like a t-shirt, a hoodie and trainers. On painting the final model I had to add a Star Wars reference in there too so I painted Vader’s mask on to his tee.

Howks on his own blog gives a simple guide and a few tips on the process of the making of the Zombie, which would help anyone starting to customise. Check out more details   and see how the Zombie was born. Overall this custom is pretty cool and I am sure his friend did look too much like this… maybe after his birthday party hangover

Keep tabs on Howks via , Twitter and Instagram and just got the news that Howks has re-opened his commission list whoop whoop, you better get on it before it shuts again.
