KingZombie are re-releasing their Biohazard horror figures in pewter.

From their announcement:
13 NG Zombie.jpgYou may know that embarked last year on producing a set of 28mm zombie miniatures in resin of first responders and survivors. Due to production issues, we had to discontinue our set of resin figures after a very short run.

Additionally, they will be sold in full sets of 20, Sets of Survivors and sets of zombies. They will also be available for purchase individually.

We would also like to thank those of you who have inquired as to the availability of the resin figures after they have gone out of production. Your enthusiasm for our “babies” kept us motivated to find a way to get them done in pewter.

Our new metal figures will be debuting at GamiCon on February 13th, 2010 and we hope you’re able to be there for it. If not, they will be available from our website after GamiCon is over.

Thank you again for your patience if you were waiting and we look forward to making more figures in the future.
