Let's proceed with the parade of survivors. After Brother James and Lucas here comes the third figure for Zombicide: Black Plague I painted recently:
She was part of the Black Plague Kickstarter which took place last year and the generous backers unlocked her after collecting as much as $1,300,000. As most of the other Kickstarter exclusive survivors she's inspired by a well-known TV character:
Although I never followed the Xena TV series I recognised her at once as inspiration for the figure. Somehow the series about this warrior princess was an essential part of the TV culture in the late nineties and there was no way to ignore it completely. Unfortunately those pseudo-greek-mythic stories never caught me...
Anyway here 30mm incarnation is a nice piece of craftsmanship. As usual Cmon depicted her character very well and recreated her costume almost perfectly. Qualitatively the figure is simply as good as all the stuff I've seen from Cmon so far. A really well detailed piece made of that robust board game plastic.
Gamewise Xuxa is a very tough survivor. She starts with a bonus on strength and is very soon able to fight those tough monsters which are usually unbeatable in close combat for other survivors. Of course that makes her a good choice for any game but maybe it turns the balance too far to the easy corner. We'll see...
Usually I take the pictures of my painted figures before varnishing them. Therefore I'll have to ass some static grass or foliage to the base later.
