Sometimes some new figures come out which just inspire you and you have to get them! That's how I felt about the Hooded Executioners from 15mm.co.uk.
I did delay for as long as possible, but they just seemed to call to me. Partly because I figured they would be perfect Warband elements for my chaos forces in Hordes of the Things, but, as they come in a pack of sixteen, I can get 5 warband elements (3 per base) and have one left over.
What?! A left over figure, what's the use in that?!
Well, it gives me a groovy character to use in All Things Zombie!
I've been toying with using card makers for Magic The Gathering in order to create ATZ character cards (as many seem to do) and have just had a first attempt.
This is just a first draft, banged out in a couple of minutes, but I like how it is heading and it seems perfect for making character records for one off games.
For those of you interested, I used this free software: http://magicseteditor.sourceforge.net/
Now, I just need to wait for the figures to arrive!
