Psalm Bay, Oregon

My zombie infested town.
You've seen some of my "modern" scenery on a few of my other pages. Over time, they have started to form into the little town of Psalm Bay. I have my old church and the trailer home. I have a small factory (maybe where the infection starts from a chemical spill?), a motel and a house in the works. Hopefully I'll have a hospital, a apartment block and some more houses later.

Holy crap was the above Police Biker a pain to assemble!!! He's one of a pair of cops on foot and mounted available from West Wind Productions. The models have been in my "to-do pile" for a while, but they were in such bad shape. The bike took me ages to clean up the mold lines and flash. The white metal was some sort of hybrid between pewter and taffy. So I pinned everything. The front wheel was too small for me to pin so I had to add another visible pin under the engine. Getting the rider to fit was awful too. If you are not too confident in your ability to clean up models, skip these guys.
I don't think that all of West Wind's models are like this. I know the zombies I bought from them were in much better shape. Maybe I just got a bad batch. If I could have seen these guys before I bought them online, I would not have picked them up.

ZOMBIES!!!

I got my bloaters and zombie dogs from Tengu Models in the UK. The bloaters are done. Zombie dogs are next. Just to note, all the special zombies are on big survivor sized bases in order to keep my opponents informed over who is a zombie co-star for 7ombieTV. All the zombie extras are going to be on smaller bases.

Some towns nestled around the Cascades are full of pretentious eco-hipsters. Not Psalm Bay. Ice cream shops dot the historic downtown. Families grab burgers at the cozy little cafe. A Friday-night street fair, with a beer garden, live music, and games for the kids, runs all summer. No wonder this down-to-earth town has appeared high on most Best Places to Live lists before.
It's also weathering the economic downturn well. Robust industries in the area, such as high tech, energy, and health care, make county unemployment among the lowest in the state.
But the top reason residents give for moving here? The great outdoors. Psalm Bay is laced with nearly 30 miles of trails, Running Waters National Park is less than an hour away, and eight world-class ski resorts are within two hours. The town's schools are highly rated as well.
Add in dry, clear weather, little crime, good health care, and low taxes. Psalm Bay is pretty tough to beat.
