Fireteam Zero is a fast and furious cooperative boardgame of brutal squad tactics versus a relentless onslaught of horrifying foes. Fireteam Zero is a cooperative game for up to four players who must cut a path through an endless swarm of deadly monsters in order to discover and defeat the ultimate evil behind them. Each player possesses a set of brutal combat skills that are represented by a deck of cards unique to that character. Play cards to devastate the creatures in your way, help your teammates survive the onslaught, or even reshape the tactical landscape with the proper application of explosive ordnance.
Each player will become a member of Fireteam Zero and commit acts of badassery against different families of monsters while trying to capture or destroy the arcane artifacts that are creating them.
Marksman Frank “Two Penny” Eaton, Leader Maxine “Moxy” Hall (for me she is Margaret “Peggy” Carter) and Psychic Patrick “Cake” Wolinski
I supported their Kickstarter and received the first part of my pledge reward recently. The minis are of decent quality - a bit soft for my taste - and I decided to paint the characters. IMO the sculpts are great, maybe a bit big, you can only use them in FZ! The material used is blurring the sculpt a bit which happens SOOOO often these days.

And since everybody is always asking for it - the famous size comparison shot! As you can see the FZ minis are on the big side, they are around 35mm from feet to eye, so overall size is 38-39mm. The monster minis are even bigger, what makes sense since they looked all a bit hulked out. More on that soon...
Bone Fetch, Harvester and Skin Fetch
The Fetch - Monsters cobbled together by all kinds of unsavoury bits, with a core a spectral fire. The spectral fire description gave me the idea to paint the whole monster family as eery glowing monsters, gives them IMO a unique and weird look.
Bone Fetch - Burning Bones lashed to a wooden frame. Always on the edge of yoursight and always closer next time you look. Worse than the flames is the way they scream, as though there were still skin left to burn.
Harvester - A howling vortex of spectral fire and corpses, waht did they think was going to happen when they attacked it? The worst part is that those men are still in there - somewhere...
Skin Fetch - A ten foot tall collection of spare parts, not all of them human.
The Children of Typhon
The Children of Typhon are the 2nd monster family I painted.
The Corrupted Animal.
The Corrupted Human.
The Infested was the first monster family from the board game Fireteam Zero I painted. It's the worms that make the meat move.
The Mother of Worms
The Consumed Baitbag
A Cthulhu Wars Summoning Circle, it will serve double duty as a Fireteam Spawn Location.
