For this custom I used a dremel (different bits), a knife, glue and a grinder

Figure parts

The nice part about making a zombie is that most any fodder pieces can be used. Here I simply picked out some parts I didn't have much use for, or duplicates of.

Getting started (parts modification)

I began the figure by removing the head and replacing it with the now modded casting.

The new head is glued in place.

I lopped off the old hands.

The arms are dremeled down and holes are drilled to accept the Microman hands.

This zombie will have an axe stuck in his chest, so the figure is prepared for it by opening a gash in his chest.

I start off with the eyes.
