Hi Everyone! Here’s a custom 1:6-scale figure of William “Bill” Overbeck from my favourite zombie game of all time, Left 4 Dead! L4D was the first and only game to make me feel real fear, tension, panic and excitement — I felt like I was actually in a zombie apocalypse. Needless to say, it freaked me out. No game has accomplished that since! It also taught me that I’d likely go nuts from tension (laughing uncontrollably, guns blazing) in that kind of extreme life-or-death situation if I’m not well-prepared for it. 😉
Anyways, Bill is one of the 4 memorable heroes from the game, he’s a crusty Vietnam vet & all-around bad ass. As you can imagine, this game holds a special place in my heart, so I really tried to do the character justice. I’ve been planning a figure of him since the game came out, over 7 years ago!
Beret – BBI, colored, printed & glued new special forces patch (De Oppresso Liber!)
Head – Kaustic Plastik, slight painting to bring out lines in face
Cigarette – Wire from a trash twisty tie, rolled in apoxie sculpt, painted (the wire sticks out and makes it easy to subtly insert into head plus change the angle of the cig)
Body – Enterbay old guy body, repainted to match head’s color
Jacket – Dragon, re-colored, weathered
Shirt – Fodder, weathered
Pants – Sideshow, heavily weathered
Boots – ACE, heavily weathered
M16 – BBI, added the light & pressure pad, repainted & weathered
Thanks for looking!
