So, our FLGS tells me that they will have Benson and Homer in stock this week.
As the two of them will cost the same as 5 Heroes (+dashboards and weapons) in the Hero box, I'm probably not going to bother with these, but I don't want to pass up the opportunity now and discover later they were something amazing.

Does anyone know what powers Benson has? I've not been able to find them anywhere?

For Info, Homer (apparently) is as follows:

Body: May hold a Daggger.
Blue - Tactician.
Yellow: +1 Action.
Orange: +1 die: combat/+1 Move action
Red: +1 die: Combat / +1 Combat Action / Hit & Run

Found some images here: http://zombicide.eren-histarion.fr/benson/


What I could see/translate

Body: Sword
Blue: ??
Yellow: +1 Action
Orange: ?1 / ??
Red: ?2 / Lucky / Shove

?1 - Appears to be some sort of free action
?2 - Appears to be extra damage, possible to melee. Google translates "+1 dégât à l'épée" as "+1 Damage to the sword" but I hope it's not that specific.

Benson would be the first BP survivor that has a +1 damage with a particular weapon? Don't think any of the others have something like that...

It would make regular swords on par with bastard swords, except dual-able. I feel like it would make swordmaster potentially even worse.

Funny how life works. You have a chance to pick them up quite cheap and are unsure you want to. Some of us would love to have them but just can't bring ourselves to pay the $75 USD each they go for on eBay. laugh

Now they're being released in FLGS they'll be at least a bit more widely available, right? Right?

I really want that Benson.

Are Benson and Homer looking like any known musician or actor or else?

I believe Benson is Orlando Bloom's character from Kingdom of Heaven.

I believe Homer is Russell Crowe's character from Gladiator.

I could be wrong, but that is what I think they are.

LOL, I thought I remembered that but could not remember the source so I admit it is nice to see my memory was right. Thank You.

Orlando Bloom is 100% certain. I found a picture with exactly same posture, clothes and colours.
Gladiotor is a bit more stretched, but nothing better comes in mind so far... I think he is like Claudia...

Just got mine off eBay yesterday, from one of the sellers.



£32.74 delivered to the UK from Germany. Much better then some of the prices I've seen, for the pair.
