My zombie horde is growing large enough to add some heroes. A member of TMP (theminiaturespage.com) told me where I could order some of the miniatures from the "Last Night On Earth" boardgame. I got 14 zombies (mixture of 3 poses) and 7 (?) heroes for about $20! They take paint well (my pics don't really show it) and are nice sculpts for being cheap.
Notes: only about 4-5 sculpts in the line currently. They add some good characterful alternatives; we all "need" zombie purple dinosaurs! These are metal/pewter.
Value: OK; would need more rank and file for hordes to get a higher mark, but nice figures.
Notes: some very nice miniatures, but they've been working on their rightfully popular Quar line more than zombies lately. Their minis range from ultra-cool to average, though. Pro: They have zombies from all walks of un-life...
Cost: $3-$5/figure IIRC
These come from the UK, so the price is high with the low value of the USD. Very nice range and poses. They've had problems with some of their moulds for months, and dealers haven't been restocked in that time. I hope they get the problems fixed, as I'd like to get some more.
Cost: high/currently unavlbl
Value: Good, when avlbl. Could be higher if the exchange rate were better.
