Thread: Thoughts on the Survivors?

    Default Thoughts on the Survivors?

    Just wondering who some of the survivors are modeled after. Since it's pretty obvious that the policemen is the guy from Walking Dead, the goth chick is from NCIS, and the business man is Micheal Douglas from Falling Down.
    I think the Prepper guy is Ted Nugent...that just leave the waitress? and the Gangster...who may be Eminem?

    anyways thoughts? also the promo figures are: Sheldon from TBBT, Machete, and Bruce Willis from Die Hard!

    I also believe there will be a Chuck Norris guy in the expansion...

    Discuss!

    I think the hoodie's hair is too long to be eminem. That said, I'm not really sure who they are.

    I don't think the six in the box are meant to be directly modelled on anyone, more so archetypes. The three promo survivors are obviously modelled on specific characters. I'm guessing that's why they're promos.

    Could the roller skater be rollergirl from boogie nights?

    Did not recognize Sheldon until it was pointed out here. Now I don't see how I missed him.

    EDIT: Didn't recognize Abbey either. Doh!

    I think she is actually supposed to be a waitress rather than a porn star.

    I just can't wait to play as Danny Trejo

    As a huge player of Left 4 Dead I can see some similarities between Zombicide and L4D:

    Zombies:
    -Fatty = Boomer
    -Walkers = Hoard
    -Abomination = Tank
    -Runner = Hunter

    Doug reminds me of Louis from L4D1 - Both office guys 'ready' with guns
    Josh reminds me of Francis (L4D1) or Ellis (L4D2) for being 'street thugs' (open to interpretation of course)
    Wanda remind me of Rochelle from L4D2 when a chainsaw was a 'premiere' weapon in the game - girls with chainsaws

    We have an ongoing discussion in BGG about this.
    http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/...oes-and-cameos


    Long story short:


    Doug - Whateverhisname, from Falling Down
    Amy - Abby, from NCIS
    Josh - A reference to the Ocuppy Movement
    Phil - Rick Grimes, from The Walking Dead (series)
    Dave - Sheldon Cooper, from The Big Bang Theory
    El Cholo - Machete
    Nick - John McClaine, from Die Hard
    Ned - Unknown
    Wanda - Unknown


    We're still missing two characters.

    I don't buy the connection for Josh for the simple fact that it doesn't follow the pattern of the rest.

    Doug - Actor
    Amy - Actress
    Phil - Actor
    Dave - Actor
    El Cholo - Actor
    Nick - Actor
    Josh - Some random dude with a hoodie that might be in the background of a news photo.

    I agree Ned does look like Tallahassee.

    Doug is definitely Michael Douglas/D-fens from Falling Down
    Amy kinda looks like Pauley Perette/Abby from NCIS
    Josh, Eminem? a simple street thug? I don't know...
    Phil maybe Andrew Lincilon/Rick Grimes from The Walking Dead, but I'm really not that sure
    Dave IS Big Bang Theory's Jim Parsons/Sheldon Cooper, Bazinga!
    El Cholo is Danny Trejo/Machete
    Nick has the Bruce willis/John McClane's haircut
    Wanda I don't know
    Eva Duran is Uma Thurman/Beatrix Kiddo from Kill Bill

    I now want Simon Pegg/Shaun!

    Shauns allready been made together with a few other famous zombie hunters by Hasslefree miniatures.. great sculpt I might add.. I would much prefer a few normal everyday heroes, but if CMON keeps doing pop icons, what about a zombie slaying Johnny Cash? or the the Mcmanus brothers from boon dock saints? Michionne the deranged katana wielding maniac from the Walking dead together with her (h)armless chained pet zombies would be fun too.

    Sorry but I don't care for proxies and what others have done.... No offense mate

    That's because there will be no rules for 'em, no sheets ,nothing.
    And because I just can't mix figures from different companies; for exemple a Rackham figure will look odd in the middle of a Warhammer Battle army, it'll certainly be noticed but not for the right reason IMHO. There's a considerable amount of companies that I like, I buy from a lot of them but I just don't mix.

    This game I like, this company I'd like to produce some of the ideas I presented
    BTW I think we're drifting away from the original subject and this last part would be better placed in the "And the next contestants please..." post....

    My Sheppard in Mass Effect looked like Trejo. Makes everything more awesome!

    Anyone wanting a "Buffy the Slayer" character can use the obvious figure from Hasslefree, or the similar one from CMON.

    I like how the art for El Cholo looks a bit like Danny Trejo.

    The sculpted figure looks EXACTLY like him.

    It's usually the other way round!

    I feel the same way about the Nick sculpt, his sketch definitely had the look of Willis/McClane but the survivor sculpt leaves no doubt.
