I'm looking for a set of at least 18 zombies, 28mm scale, plastic, that are the 28 days later kind. Not dead and rotting, or mutated and mangled, just people who look a little sick and violently crazy. Wearing clothes that could fit into any time period or setting (like ripped and tattered rags) is a huge plus.

I need 4 sets of them, so I do NOT want 1 mini. I have found semi-suitable individual minis from Reaper Miniatures. That would cost about $140. Ideally, it would be a boxed set of 20-30, like the ones for Zombicide (Angry Zombies, Toxic Zombies) for around $20 each, and I can just get 2-4 of them and spend half that.

Any suggestions?

Living zombie, no gore/rot. So most office workers before coffee?

Just wait and see: Zombies will rage around for a while, but soon they too will bog down in committees and endless meetings. Just keep the door shut and a gun ready until we get there.

Unfortunately I feel like what you are asking for is something that just doesn't exist. It is decidedly not zombies.

Well, I'm not expecting them to come in a package that says "28 Days Later"-style living zombies, of course. I'm just looking for something that will work. Any weaponless people with their arms slightly out would probably work. Any games with "victim" minis you need to rescue, and they're posed reaching out to you. Enemy characters with "Berserker" or "raging" in their name might be a candidate. Stuff like that.

Seem to fit the bill, but not sure on size and numbers.

Oh! Thank you! So close to being perfect. I just can't find out what size they are, plus they are a little too expensive. No idea how much they are charging for international shipping to the US, but with 8 in the box for around $17, that would be $153 for the sets I need. More than the $140 if I buy them separately. This is exactly what I'm looking for though. You could even go more human looking. Thanks.

See? This guy gets it!

Keep the suggestions going. Remember, it doesn't have to be a boxed set to be together. I could always buy a whole game just for its minis. I'm aiming for $1/usable mini though.

How about the Wargames Factory Zombie Horde set? You get about 24 or so, should be about 28mm scale, a little tedious to put together, price isn't bad for that many.

edit: you get 24, been awhile

Because You didn't find me a link to just the minis at a good price.
It's like getting a bullseye, but then Robin Hood splits the arrow for a double bullseye for the win.

OMG NO! Tedious is not the word. Impossible is what they are. ZERO pegs or anything to attach, for a 1 inch mini in 10 pieces. I ordered a box from them and shrieked in terror when I opened it. I returned it immediately and gave them a bad review on amazon. It said "some assembly may be required" and had no pictures of the contents of the box. It should have said "FULL, SKILLED assembly IS required, modeling glue not included" or whatever customer service lingo they want to use to warn people it's a box of microscopic parts you have to glue together.

I appreciate the suggestion, but no way!

What about Runners from Zombicide? They're all in movement poses and don't all look completely decayed.

Along with this, there are multiple sculpts available.

He does say "Ideally, it would be a boxed set of 20-30, like the ones for Zombicide" so I presume he has seen the runners already.

Yes. It's actually for this that I'm working on:

The embalmed zombies.

I have a bunch of twilight creation minis, but they're too small. 25mm vs 28mm I think. Plus they're WAY too decayed-looking to pass for rage zombies.

I don't suppose anyone has any suggestions for alternatives to these Zombie Ogres? I'm pretty sure I'm gonna have to bite the bullet and spend $100 for 36 of these because they're so specific. But if anyone knows an alternative for these too, that would help out a LOT. I want to spend less than $50 for at least 36 of ones like these.
