MTG Zombie Token

downloadWhen looms a medieval zombie apocalypse (which, frankly, happens every time the local necromancer goes for a stroll) it’s not the lords and ladies, safely ensconced behind thick citadel walls and rows of nervous archers who get chomped; if serf’s up for Jack and Jill mudgrubber they’re crudités for Zed anon.

With a model this small, it’s all about pose. How do you communicate shambling corpse with the broadest strokes, while keeping overhangs to a minimum?

Some details unfortunately get lost in the printing, like this lovely compound tibial fracture.

I’m a little disappointed in the resolution of the print. Even at .1mm layer height the finer details of Zed’s leg get lost, as does his partially-revealed skull. My understanding is that several key powder printing patents expire in 2014, so perhaps by then we’ll be able to print this zombie with all his putrid details intact.

At that point I’ll have to go back and add some facial features, because for now Zed doesn’t have a nose or clearly defined mouth.

What do you think?
