As I have said many times, over the years, since launching my PROJECT Z, "you can never have too many zombie figures".
One of the only issues I have with Mantic's The Walking Dead: All Out War line is the limited variety of "walker" miniatures.
But necessity is the mother of invention and so I, like hundreds before me, have been investing in "proxy" miniatures.
I've highlighted four here. Above, flanked by two Mantic walkers, are zombies from Reaper's Chronoscope range and Cold War Miniatures' The Dead Will Walk line.
The Chronoscope figures are my favourite proxies as they most closely match Mantic miniatures in height and heft, but, sadly, they are also the most costly as they are Reaper miniatures.
Below we have (again flanked by Mantic walkers for comparison) a zombie from Studio Miniatures and a walker from Cryptozoic's The Walking Dead: No Sanctuary board game.

While we're talking about the Cryptozoic game, it's worth noting that this is licensed from the TV show (whereas Mantic's wargame draws purely from the original comic books and graphic novels), which means this is the best place to get hold of official miniatures of the fan-favourite Dixon brothers - Daryl and Merle (see below).
