For the true, hardcore Tabletop gamer, it’s hard to imagine a gaming session without some sort of set pieces to signify monsters or player characters. While Warhammer and Warhammer 40k may be the most prominent topic when talk of miniatures is brought up, there are plenty of figures for games like Dungeons and Dragons, World of Darkness, and even Shadowrun to go around. Even so, the miniature market is still small and under-tapped, with only a few companies producing the products that people want.
Immersive Realms, Inc. is a company looking to get into that market. Started in 2010 by Shawn Recinto of Chicago, Immersive Realms develops a miniatures set called “Box-o-Zombies”. While it might not leave much to the imagination as to what may be inside said box, the figures themselves are highly detailed, and ripe for the picking for the miniature enthusiast. As of right now, the Zombies come in a choice of either “Sickly Slime Green” or “Puke Purple” and retail at $14.99 for a set of 6.
The solid color choice and build of high quality PVC make these Zombies the perfect choice for collectors and players looking to detail their own living dead. At C2E2, they had a Samurai Zombie on display that had been detailed by a local artist and looked fantastic. On top of that, they also have a Steampunk Zombie line in the works. Clockwork + Zombies? Yes please!
All in all, if you’re a tabletop gamer, collector of miniatures, or just like Zombie figures, definitely check these guys out at www.boxozombies.com. And if you’re looking for a game to play where they can be used, check out my article from yesterday on Dystopia Rising. They pair perfectly!
