Book Of Peril Projects and Half of a Review of Zombicide: Invader…

Last time I set the rather lofty goal of getting together all the superfluous models and scenery needed to play in the Badzones settings of the Book of Peril. While I like nothing more than fleshing out my tabletop world, I am always cognizant of the costs involved.

I did all of the bases so that they have a more cohesive look – I did them all the same style, but since I knew Sue is painting her necrons green, I painted the bases to match.
