Zombicide Black Plague Monty Python and the Holy Grail painted 28mm miniatures

“I’m not dead” – Monty Python and the Black Plague.

It seems apt to follow on from my last post with this one, featuring character’s from one of the funniest, cleverest films of all time (in my humble opinion) – Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

Whilst the film featured no zombies it doesn’t tax the imagination at all to see why Cool Mini or Not chose to include some of the characters from the classic in their Zombicide Black Plague character sets. Only disguised by ‘name’ there is nothing between the look of these and the Python team members. The only draw back is there are only six released – hopefully I could have ended that sentence with “so far” – no idea I’m afraid if there will be more.

Now these are not as ‘fine’ as the relatively recent arrivals on the miniature scene from Studio Miniatures (Medieval Mayhem) but as far as plastic board game miniatures are concerned they are rather very good indeed. There are some annoyingly positioned mold lines – straight through Sir Bedevere’s face spring to mind – but apart from that pretty good poses. Some painted up better than others but that’s down to yours truly and not the minis themselves.

A strongly themed Frostgrave warband springs to mind among many others.

(Note to self – after seeing close ups of these in photos, go back and re-do some of those eyes! Cross-eyed Mary’s all over the place!)

    1. Hah! Thanks Stephane. Whilst I’m not a skinflint, I think the minis are good value for your money – certainly not ‘collector’ stuff by any means.

      The entire film could be a ‘quote’ it is so full of classic lines. As I have your attention, and I assume you are French, what do the French make of the scenes with the French defenders? I think after the Black Knight scene my favorite quote comes from them – “I fart in your general direction! Your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberries!”. Used by me on a fairly regular basis.

  1. in fact, this “french” sentence means nothing in french and everybody here found that funny 😀
    I’ve seen this movie long long very long time ago I do not remenber very well.
