Zombie Creation: Ye Olde Zombie Attack

There’s a lot of zombie stuff out there, and most of it is crap. People like to jump on bandwagons and produce quick tie-ins rather than investing love and effort into their creations. Luckily for you, I’m here to help separate the wheat from the chaff. Check back every Thursday, when I’m going to share the coolest zombie-related creation I can find out there on the web.

This week’s zombie creation, “Ye Olde Zombie Attack” by Sam, was emailed in, which makes it a Bricks of the Dead exclusive. Hurray for exclusivity! Ahem, at any rate, this creation imagines what a zombie attack would be like in the Middle Ages. Turns out it’s pretty much like a zombie attack now, only with more swords and armor, which is pretty damn cool.

Zombies versus spears, crossbows, and swords

The zombies are attacking from multiple angles

It looks pretty safe from this angle.

And this shot is my favorite of the bunch, because it tells the whole story with two characters on opposite sides of a flimsy door:

Ahh! Medieval zombies!

Pretty fun little creation, no? Sure the Photoshopping could use a bit of work, but I quite like the composition here. The shoddy state of the shack these people are using as a last stand really points a point on the desperation they are no doubt feeling. The humans all have appropriate expressions, ranging for horror to stoicism, and the zombies have a nice variety to them. There’s even the remains of a poor horse who wasn’t able to make it past the horde. Sorry, horse.

Have you seen a great zombie creation out on the web? Are you working on the next great zombie MOC as we speak? Well you had better let us know right away, otherwise we’ll never be able to include it here.

  1. When I first saw the Harley Quinn, I was like “what?” But then I read your post and now I’m like “WOW!” That is a great idea!!

    With all the dead from plauge and the horrible living conditions, it’s a wonder the ZA didn’t happen then.

    Good job Sam!

    • I really like the “zombies throughout time ” creations. That’ll probably be the theme of a future contest, actually.

    • Technically, if you read up on your vampire lore, vampires are to blame for many of the plague in certain areas of Europe.

  2. Sam…hats off to you for a job well done.

    The faded face in the foreground of panel 2 and the ripping off of the boards on 3 are wonderful details.

    • Indeed. Nicely done, Sam.

      • thanks guys, this is the first zombie build i’ve properly done
        (yes, I’m Sam)

  3. Nice MOC, and tackled from an original angle!
    Taking down a zed that is wearing such a helmet must be pretty difficult…

    • Yeah, zombies with helmets almost seems unfair.

  4. I love it. I wanted to do one like this ever since I figured out that legos and zombies could mix.

    • And a perfect mix at that!

      • the closest i got was a hallway and goblins made from storm/clone trooper armor. it was made with scraps but I think it was pretty cool. also made a storage compartment and a sand glider.
