Anne Cooper is one of the "Paint Crew" at Reaper Miniatures, and painted up the WDNS miniatures for display at San Diego Comic Con. My guess is that these are the higher-detail resin miniatures (some of which are used as masters for the plastic production miniatures. The sculpts look quite promising, and Anne found painting these miniatures "really exciting to work on". Yay, professional endorsement!

Anne is a phenomenal painter.

The pictures don't really show these resin masters as very detailed, and I worry they'll be even less detailed in plastic.

Michone's sword is going to be difficult to keep straight in plastic as well.

Hi! Thanks everyone!

Regarding the quality of the figures, the ones I painted were resin masters. I haven't personally seen the final figures material in person, but I think they will be really good. Particularly, because AMC was overseeing the likeness factor so heavily on the master sculpts. I can't imagine they would go through all that effort to release a final product that wasn't up to par.

I do wish I had had abit more time for painting (2 weeks for 13 figures -marathon!) and was better at photography . And in retrospect I should have photographed before starting as well to share more of the process. I think the before shots would assuage peoples' concerns.

The clear bases don't come with the game, I made them separately as I found in the course of painting some of the duplicates were to be given to the actors. I was afraid with the masters being so delicate they would break on them. I seriously was over the moon at the picture with them!

One thing I really liked about these miniatures were the more realistic proportions. Yes, it is more challenging to paint faces (and eyes under hat brims, it's all about the hats!), that are smaller but the overall feel of the figure is more like painting a small sculpture, if that makes any sense. Stephan did a fantastic job with these figures. My painting skills don't do enough justice to his work.

I do like Mantic's figures that portray the characters from the graphic novels as well and I think for Walking Dead fans who are into both the show and the graphic novels, these are great compliments to have. Having read the graphic novels, the show is more like an alternate universe setting.

I have some additional photos of different angles of the figures here: http://minicreatures.blogspot.com/

Probably some people will complain because they are expecting Games Workshop's quality on the miniatures, but they are good enough for the kind of game they have been designed for.
And you did an excellent job with them Anne.

Anne's given me the ok to upload the pics (well, I think that's what her PM implicitly said (:

fyi, BGG only allows group shots of mini's, so I'll upload the group shot and link it to this thread.

Myself, in two weeks, I'd only be able to get the mold lines scraped off! zombie

EDIT: Anne mentioned Update 3 had some pics. For those who joined later, lookatemgo! zombie

I'll see if there are any unpainted masters floating around the office when I go in Wednesday for playtesting. If I am allowed to post pics of them, I will.

The 3D sculptor for all of these did a ton of work on Kingdom Death, so I can at least assure you they are far better than the GB stuff from last year.
