Would love to see a One Monk rendition of Zombicide, Left4Dead, Resident Evil, Dead Space, and Fallout inspired paper minis.
I love Zombie Apocalypse type stuff. Can't have enough special zombies (witch, hunters, lickers, jockeys, tanks, etc), boss zombies (Tyrants, etc) and even Survivors (Zoey, Bill, Coach, Chris, Jill, etc).
If I say please, would that help
Looking forward to anything the Monk makes regardless!
Have you looked through all the hoards, as well as the sets One Monk/Mayhem in Paper has for sale on the Drivethru family of sites? They are all linked from www.onemonk.com/Home.html. There are certainly a scattering of other peoples work throughout these forums as well. Zombies aren't really my thing, but since you are new here, you might not know of the previous incarnations of this forum/One Monk collaboration. Check out mmiparchive.papermakeit.com/Main.html as I think you'll find a smattering of modern and undead gaming papercraft to put to good use.
As to witchhunters, Shep just made a request for them here, so you can see what else to track down.
WisdomKnight - That's exactly what I did. I used paper zombies to replace the plastic zombies that came with Zombicide. I put together a Halloween scenario for the family using figures from both Okumarts (Serene Fist) and Darkmook (Survival Horror):
Zombies - Okumarts (Zombies) Runners - Darkmook (Zombie Dogs) Fatties - Okumarts (Furry Zombies) Abomination - Darkmook (Big Al from the Biker set) Survivors - Darkmook (Scooby Doo and the Gang aka Teenage Investigators)
I didn't take to as long as I thought it would to put together a full set of figures... and it worked out great. The colorful paper figs looked a lot better than the gray plastic figs.
I would be great to see Okumarts or Darkmook do a set of figures that are more specific to Zombicide. It wouldn't take too many really, just two or three poses of each type of zombie. The real fun is in the Survivors they could come up with... I'd love to see a complete cast of The Walking Dead...(GriN).
Currently there are three sub-types of each zombie type:
Walker - Regular, Toxic, and Berserker Runner - Regular, Toxic, and Berserker Fatty - Regular, Toxic, and Berserker Abomination - Regular, Toxic, and Berserker
My game only used regular zombies... with Okumarts' and Darkmook's current offerings it would be more difficult to put together a game using toxic and/or berserker zombies.
David was talking about a new expansion he was working on, Katana Schoolboys, I think under his publisher board, or maybe his own forum. I don't know if any zombies are planned, or if the favoured enemy of the 'boys is something else entirely. Maybe there's still time to have some input???
As for Darkmook, there's lots of stuff on RPGNow/DriveThruRPG, etc. including a couple of freebies you'd enjoy, some figures of which are included in the various figure hoards. Darkmook's also coming out with a new game, tiles, and new figures. You can follow it all here.
And if you need something to play them on, when not playing Zombicide, try out Crooked Staff Publishing's Tiles of the Dead. There's a free Games Room and a full set of Living Spaces, reg. $3.99 with an intro price of $2.99. I like CSP's stuff enough that I picked it up despite having no need for it. I just wish they included a "before" version, as well as the bloodied "after zombie attack" version, so I could use it in a modern or supers RPG. Or murder mystery, with both.
As for One Monk... well, the bad news is that Jim Hartman, the original One Monk, is largely retired from papercrafting. He sold the business (including website, catalogue & freebies) to Sanity Studios a couple of years ago, who in turn sold it to Squirmydad (AKA Eric Brown, AKA Mayhem in Paper) this summer. Jim pops his head in occasionally, and has a few figures on the go, but isn't terribly involved anymore. He works at Litko, though, so you could check out what stuff he's dreaming up in the realm of acrylic game pieces to bling up your Zombiecide. The good news is that the Cardboard Warriors are alive & thriving, especially thanks to Squirmydad. In addition to revamping the website and forum, reinstating the monthly figure hoards and annual Papercuts contest, he's also re-releasing all of One Monk's stuff, and working at expanding the line, in addition to his own steampunkery and Chinese junkery goodness. You can even have a hand at tweaking some of Jim's models, wraiths and ghouls and weapons bits are floating around here somewhere...
Phew. I've got a lot to type for someone who doesn't play with zombies, eh? or who can't seem to update her blog?
I like Zombicide ( and almost all games, boardgames, rules, RPGs zombies' themed ). But I didn't buy it. I liked to follow his kickstarter's campaigns but in the end I have not participated to them. For several reasons. I have a house full of monster-boardgames ever used, thousands of miniatures unpainted, but especially my vision about kickstarter (and similar) is a bit different. For me it is not an online store where I put pre-orders, and then I have to look at the price's convenience, but above all it is not an instrument for the big producers' reduction of business risks.
So, some time ago, I made a choice, I choose mainly digital products ( with some exceptions ) and I prefer independent producers, friends ... as an aid to creativity ( which I have not ) and recognition/appreciation of their works.
But that's another story. I have read zombicide's rules and, without them even try, they seem fun and fast ...
About survivors ... ( I refer especially to promo survivors ) it would be nice to have their paper ministoo, but I think that these artworks are subject to copyright. Not so the characters ( obviously ), but would need someone who draw new figures..
@all: the the official Guillotine Games website, in game stuff sections, is filled with available materials for download. Rules, cards, missions, utilities ...
Dagger: I'm a "The Walking Dead" big fan. I also hope that there are specific paper figures' sets. In fact ... I'm sure.
A big ( from 6 to 10 figures ) set for each season.
About this, Fallout paper minis, you should look for information about "Fallout: Warfare" a p&p ( not print and play but pen and paper, even if eventually you have to print them ) wargame rules. It was free. Now I don't know if it still is. It has 4/5 CG paper figures, with front and back, sets.

Wow WackyAnne, thank you so much for all this great information!
I mostly use minis for Savage Worlds RPG, though I did start with minis from board games such as Last Night on Earth A Touch of Evil, and Arkham Horror. I like playing modern horror RPG one shots (RPG). But I came from years playing FASERIP Marvel Superheroes RPG as a teen, so really Im interested in most genres of minis really.

wyvern: I've found Photos loading the first image slowly every time I've switched on the computer in recent times. It's been OK after that, but seems like it can't quite remember how to do it just after it's been woken up...

surfduke: Do you want a preview pdf of the Jupiter 2 here? If so how do I post it.
May 27, 2020 0:39:56 GMT -9
Vermin King: That would explain why 'Photos' loaded slower this weekend. It was 'improved'
May 26, 2020 8:07:25 GMT -9
wyvern: It wasn't some fresh Windows "improvement" then... I noticed the icon for the MS image viewer, "Photos", changed a few days back as well. Doesn't seem to have changed the app, as far as I can tell. Yet.

lightning: Glad that only a restart was involved. I wouldn't have the energy to much more today :-)

Vermin King: I had a scare and a half. Went to open a pdf for the first time today and nothing happened. Checked All Programs and saw that Reader updated on 05/23. Restarting fixed it. Whew

Vermin King: Really worn out tonight, so when I'm like that I just look for things I used to have, but don't any more. I got the Zippy models and am rebuilding my Tirick/TCF Gaming folder. How the heck would anyone build his 1/1000 Battletech mechs without enlarging

Toman: yea I have been. pretty cool project. I've done a few scratch builds like that but not as large. cutting individual stones or carving stones in foam sucks.

Vermin King: Anybody else following Mauther's home-made Playmobile castle build? Looks really good so far

cowboyleland: Good point. Maybe make the wing feathers seperately so that the wind could get through them?

squirmydad: We had two operators for the hawk though, one to carry the weight and the other to flap the wings.
May 13, 2020 11:02:25 GMT -9
squirmydad: Probably silk and dowels. I assisted in the construction of a giant hawk puppet for an indoor show, probably about the same size as that pegasus.

Vermin King: It's got to be really light. The article dealt with parade puppets. I don't think I'd want to be trying to control that in a stiff wind

lightning: that's a nice pegasus!
May 13, 2020 4:10:32 GMT -9
shep: Will it fly, if you move the wings fast enough?
