Hey, thanks, Telzy — or should I say “Ro-Man”? I’d forgotten about those OG15’s.. Their bulk-buy discount would make for a semi-painless entry into the period. The remaining question is what figures would be suitable for “period” zombies. Perhaps conversions on some of the unarmored Koreans and/or Ming? More exploration needed, I see.
A great series and the second season was just added to Netflix.
In terms of 28mm figures, there is also Tiger Miniatures’ Korean and Ming Chinese line. Definitely cruder in style than Perry’s they might be a good base for period zombies: http://www.tigerminiatures.co.uk/page19.htm
