    Hey guys and gals,

    I have a question burning on my mind! I while back I saw this awesome zombie unit. It was a unit of Mantic zombies breaking through a wooden fence. One of these sections was broken and a zombie was walking on the broken fence. I cleary remember the creator talking about "illustrating the power of the mob".

    I was really impressed by it, and now I want to make a unit filler of my own. But try as I might, I cannot find this unit anymore. This bothers me extremely! I wanted some inspiration, but now I can't find it.

    So I guess my question is, does anyone know of what I am speaking? have you seen it? Could you please link it?

    Wish I could help, mate. Not sure I've seen that unit. But you may have more luck if you get this thread in the Dying To Help section. It's for just this type of post.

    Maybe a friendly mod (@Mad 'At ) can skitterleap this thread into the appropriate area so it has better odds of being seen.

    Good luck!

    Thread moved to Dying to Help.

    On topic: The only such zombie unit i could think of is by @SoulSeeker. You can see his here. Definitely a shambling mob but no fence. Have you checked the Show us your Zombies thread? Don't know if it's in there but that thread has the highest concentration of zombies for sure.

    Oke i have to admit, there is some awesome stuff in there. I may use Soulseekers idea of the shambling horde. But it was not one what I saw. This unit was walking on grass, I believe they where 10 models wide as well. It was more a diorama then a unit to play I think. I remember that it was one a website not easily found by Google, some blog I think. Damnit WHY didn't I save this picture.

    If they were multibased it might have been a Kings of War zombie horde or legion. That might bear some google fruit.

    You, my friend, are a genious. I saw the picture on another website (which I still haven't found) but it seems someone was ahead of me.

    however I do feel stupid now for using every search term known to man except such an obvious one.
    But what'ya think? any idead how to catch this concept 5 models wide?

    EDIT:
    although, here's an interesting fact. Now that I repeat this search on my own computer, I'm not getting it anymore.

    Yeah I saw that one as well, Very cool unit!
    I want to catch the feeling of the horde, just like the unit does that I posted, in a 5x2 unit filler. any ideas? I think 5 wide is to small to nicely depict the breaking fence.

    Yeah I agree that 5 wide would be too small for the effect, especially with open sides...maybe you could build the fences already destroyed on the side edges, and let them Zeds crawl over the pieces and above each other, that should give the chaotic forward pushing impress a solid mass of dead brainless bodies would doubtlessly make
