Painted T-Bone Packer: Football Jock (LNoE Townsfolk) Hasslefree Miniatures (Tony)
Hi fellow gamers I've been hunting the web for figures again I've bought loads! I'm going to drip fed these and post them as soon as they're painted. I'm working on a new Townsfolk now, but who will it be? Wait and seeZombie17

This figure is from Hasslefree Miniatures http://www.hfminis.co.uk/
   

I did a small amount of fiddling with a knife, file and green stuff and T - Bone came to life. Originally he was holding a golf club and a mobile phone. Both of these had to go. As far as I'm aware LNoE is set before the time of mobile phones and why would T- Bone have a golf club? So I gave him a football instead. I also got rid of his baseball cap so he could look more like his Townsfolk Hero card. I turned his t-shirt into a coat and I added the goatee too. It may seem like a lot of work but it took me about 15 minutes to customise. Anyway I hope you approve and take a moment to comment. Thanks!

   

As I paint more Townsfolk I will add a picture of the group. Here's T - Bone and Jeb the Grease Monkey.

Lol! Yeah the football's huge! I got carried away with modeling putty. Maybe I can pretend it's a massive burgerZombie17 Thanks for commenting Zachmaio.

Is that Jason Hill with a giant burger? Or is that just another amazing Samuraitrev creation? Impressive work. Amazing what you are able to create with green stuff and your amazing painting skills!

It's like you run your own Witness Protection Programme that creates new identities for miniatures. Not sure what HF Tony was running away from but he sure looks like a perfect T-bone.

HahaZombie17 cheers scarydk. It took me a long time (weeks) to find suitable figures I thought I might stand a chance with converting to LNoE Townsfolk. There's still some out there I haven't found yet Deputy Taylor and Coach Packer. Tell you what if anyone can help me out and find some suitable figures I will give them a +1 Rep (bribery gets you anywhere!)

Wow, that mini DOES look like Deputy Taylor! But let's not get carried away too soon. We'll have to wait and see what Sam has to say...

Something tells me, if there ain't no modding necessairy he'll just buy two and turn the second deputy into a three-headed monkey in a crouching position to mock us all! Watchmen02

Great find! I've never ordered from Chronoscope before as I've heard the Heroic scale is much bigger than 'normal' 28mm figures. One way to find out. I got hit with the shipping £14.92 in total for one figure!

Anyway as promised +1 Rep thanks for the fast response!

I would've bought 2 but have you seen the price! Hmmm a crouched, mocking, three-headed monkey. That could work...

I've been thinking of ordering Chronoscope figures for some time now but never got around to it. They have a ton of figures in their line that would suit a zombie game (both zombies and survivors).

Trev, when you receive the figure please let us know if there are any scale issues. I'd definitely like to know before I make a large purchase.

Thanks,
Steve
