The elderly gentleman on the left started off as a GZG civilan/colonist, the one on the right is a GZG armed civilian/colonist with a ZG gasmask conversion head.
I decided that the population of my colony are in need of a patriarch of some sort. I started with a GZG colonist, added a beard sculpted from epoxy plumber's putty and a walking stick from a guitar string.
I also wanted to use some more of the GZG conversion heads which I've had for a while. A couple of my armed colonists have lost their heads and received replacements. The middle figure's head was carefully sliced off (may re-use it elsewhere), the figure on the right had his head removed with a pair of cutters as it was too difficult to do with a knife. Both had holes drilled with a pin-vice, and the heads (with about 4mm of stalk still attached) araldited into place.
The elderly gent out for a stroll with a fellow colonist - possibly a son judging by the familial resemblance!
Before & after - an armed colonist and his rather sinister gas mask wearing friend.
They have been based in threes, twos and individually. The individuals use an M6 washer, 1p pieces for the pairs, and 2p pieces for the threes.
So far they've all had their flesh done, though I shall be drybrushing with greyish skin tones on some of the more aged and damaged zombies.
My favourite so far is the smart corporate zombie...

I still need to paint the RCS nozzles and re-attach them.
