Zombie Creation: Undead Forestmen

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.

The Zombie Creation:

This week’s creation, “Undead Forestment” by Tazmaniac onn Eurobrick, is another cool historical build, then time set in LEGO®’s own universe, but with an undead twist.

A big medieval build that includes zombies

The build itself is really nice, and comprised of a couple different, distinct areas. There’s a medieval city, the wall/castle outside, and the wilderness beyond that. Each is very well built and just packed with details (I just love how the castle is built into a natural stone formation). Make sure you click through to check it all out.

So What’s Going On?

I’ll let the creator of this awesome build sum things up: “A long time has past since the forest-men roamed the wood lands, taking from the rich and giving to the poor. In this time the royal knights have become fat and lazy, and some what comfortable in their superiority… but the forest-men are back from the dead and this time it’s all about brains…”

So there you have it. The forestmen are coming back from the grave, and they’re here to feast on the living.

Let’s Talk About the Zombies

The zombies here aren’t your typical dumb shamblers. They carry and use weapons and appear to have a pretty specific target in mind.

Zombies murdering peasants. Aww yeah.

Growing up, Castle was my absolute favorite theme. Seeing some of these older figures again, but zombified, really warms my heart – in an admittedly weird way. This creation is dark, but it’s also strangely whimsical.

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. 3 16×16 plates? Love it

    • Yes indeed. And it sort of modular too.

  2. Hehe, hilarious!

    • Ain’t it grand?

  3. The zombies in a ye ol’ world has always intrigued me, because if at any time there would be zombies that could be totally eliminated, it would be in those times. They didn’t play around with no silly love or anything like that. Got down to business and straight up decapitated people.

    • Perhaps, but they also tended to be more superstitious, which might be a bit of a double-edged sword.

  4. The King remembereth a dread convo, “Sire, it was foretold by the necromancer: smite not the cats of thy realm lest there be great ecological consequences! Alas, metamorphosed, venomous rats, doth dwell in thy forest, the smitten merrymen hath arisen; the Ebon Plague is upon us. May God have mercy on thy soul!.”

    “Meanwhile, not more than two swallow’s flights away, Arthur and Bedivere had discovered something. Oh, that’s an unladen swallow’s flight away, obviously. There were more than two laden swallow’s flights away, four really, if they had the coconut on a line between them. I mean, if the birds were walking, and dragging the coconut . . .”

    My way of saying: Awesome set!

    • And Luis wins the comment thread.

      • yes, yes he does. Maybe you should do a monthly community member spotlight, have Luis be the first.

        • Hah. I do have a pretty awesome community here.

    • Luis, seriously, this is one of the coolest things I have ecer seen, accept for maybe this, http://cdn.gs.uproxx.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/10/hellyes2-shark-dinosaur-gun-dynamite-300×280.jpg

      • the comment is cool I mean.

      • Great Caesar’s Ghost!! That is the most amazing picture evah! I keep chuckling out loud and people around me are looking at me as if I were a nutcase.

        Thanx! 😀

        • Im glad you like it, I just wouldn’t want to be there to fight that thing, unless I had a gatling gun that shot incindiery bullets.

  5. Beautifully detailed…. I’m jealous… I must work towards this level of detail and patience with MOCs.

    • Yeah, things like this make me look at my own sets and then need a nice stiff drink.
