Not a fan of these at all.
Artwork doesn't fit the game, sculpts seem too shallow to hold the detail.
And the zombies don't really look like zombies.

Not everyone's cup of tea I'm sure but why do you say artwork doesn't fit? they seem in the cartoon style of most of zombicide to date (artists packs excluded)

I'm not sure - something about them just doesn't look "Zombiecide" to me, though looking closely I suppose its more of the actual 'character' itself then the art.
Glancing at them just me feel like I'm looking more at a home-made board than an official one.

I think the artwork is fine but the characters don't fit Zombicide for me at all. Was not happy when they announced them as I thought they didn't fit and still don't! But I'm not forced to have them and I won't so it doesn't bother me too much for those who would like them in the game. The detail is shallow, but no more shallow than the current Zombicide miniatures.

I think that you think so because of the mask, and thus lack of expression, and lack of difference of expression when turning Zombivor.

Probably not my favourite, but I think the fit the pack.

Along with Honk and CTS, it could be the weirdest team ever.

Yeah, for me it's more that they were probably a wasted opportunity. I really wanted a cool cosplayer survivor, but based around a more recognisable theme. Now we've effectively got two cosplayers it probably means we won't see any more, but unless you're a big WoK fan they don't have the fun appeal they could have had if they'd been based on, say, certain superheroes or TV shows/movies.

The sculpts themselves seem fine, pretty much inline with the series, the pig guy actually looks decent.

I wasn't super excited about these when I ordered them but I think they turned out great!

It's all about the skills, and these two characters fit my play style.
(I don't really care for the way UW42's mask changes expressions but paint will fix that.)

Haha, I hadn't even noticed that. Yes, that's a bit weird, but it's also kind of funny. I can live with it

Sorry, don't like these, and don't really understand it. I'm a Zombicide fan. Didn't get into Wrath of Kings. I don't even really understand who these characters are. Bad move. Bad decision. CMON should focus on keeping Zombicide a unique universe. yuk

Considering some of the weird and wonderful stuff cosplayers get up to to I quite enjoy these especially with the little backstory from the KS.

I actually have more trouble with Wanda's Skates always reminds me of this from World War Z

"There was this one guy on rollerblades. He had a hockey stick in his hand, a big 'ole meat cleaver bolted to the blade. He was doing an easy thirty, at that speed he might have taken a neck or two. The camera saw the whole thing, the rotted arm that shot out of the sewer drain right in front of him, the guy back flipping into the air, coming down hard on the his face, then being dragged, screaming, by his ponytail into the drain"

Alyana can dual wield pans from turn one. That makes her worthy to me

LOL.

I really like all their skills. They've clearly been designed to work as a team (hey, didn't I hear something about team play in S3? ), and, I'd have to check, but they seem the most melee focused pair of characters yet.

I would not say the mask are different in UW42 and z-UW42. More likely the lighting...

Smiling and frowning is what I see, which would make them different in my mind. But if it's a trick of lighting then I was fooled.

If it's not a trick, and the masks are different, then I'm all for it! Normally I would have a big problem with it, but this just makes me smile. It's just the correct form of quirkiness (spelling?) that goes with this game. Although, I am the one that put Mickey Mouse ears on a fatty, Added the Joker to the zombies, and for my unique Toxic Zombie Fatty, came up with the back story that he had found some old Pepsi Blue that had gone bad, and that's how they started changing.

Can't wait to get them painted. #'s 99-102. I really need to upload my last 26 painted survivors/zombivors

I hope that's a joke laugh



Emphasis added

Anyway, maybe he just has a bunch of spare masks to reflect his mood. He's like the Mr Potato Head of the zombie apocalypse, "Prepare to meet Mr. Angry Eyes!"

I admit it was not. I was under the (false) impression, that the mouth was open smiling, so the line on Zombivor was in fact the upper lip, more seenable there than on the Survivor (reflecting the lower lip).
My mistake.


Maybe the plastic gets mutated too?

I love that they made the Pigmasks like the Drama Masks (Happy/Sad)... I think it fits very well with the CosPlay theme.

Of course they don't fit the typical "grubby worn survivor" look... this is a Costume Party that got overrun by Zombies. Awesome! While they might not fit into every niche of Zombicide... they certainly add some variety and interest, if even for a specific scenario.

~Will

ps. Wish I had gotten these!
