I love the latest enemies in The Walking Dead comic - I had to make them in miniature form! The basic idea is that they're camouflaged as walkers - they wear masks of zombie flesh (laced up at the back, like a luchador mask!) and lurk amongst the zombie hordes. Not a lot is known about them at this point in the comics, but my guess is that they sort of direct the zombie herds that have been shown now and then, walking amongst them (and communicating in whispers, hence their name - the Whisperers) and utilising the supplies left in the wake of a herd attack on a survivor group. They've been shown to mainly use knives and machetes, but one was shown to have a sawn-off shotgun. I've stuck to knives, pistols and sawn-off shotguns with these - I've put together another 5 to join these, although I may take them up to 15...
The parts for these are Wargames Factory plastic male and female survivors, plus a couple of Studio Miniatures plastic zombies and bits. A couple of the heads are from MaxMini, whilst the rest have had putty masks added.
Thanks for all the wonderful comments over Zomtober - I'm really behind on my Feedly reading list, but once I'm caught up I'll be commenting on everything I've missed out on in October!

Moving forward, I'll be adding a few more things...
- Left 4 Dead-style "specials" - boomers, smokers, tanks, jockeys etc.
- Female zombies - at the moment, the majority of my horde is male - I'd like to even this up a bit! I'm not keen on the plastic Wargames Factory ones though, so any suggestions here would be nice!
- Survivors - there are a few more I'd like from Hasslefree, a bunch from Studio Miniatures (I've wanted the Wizard of Oz ones for ages now!) and I recently purchased a box of the male Wargames Factory survivors and split a box of the female ones with one of my wargaming mates.

Ta daaaa! Flock added, excess flock brushed off with a toothbrush, base washed with a muddy/crap mix and the base sides painted black! Huzzah! All that's required now is some gore on a few figures here and there! I may get around to taking a full shot of my horde later today!
