WIP Zombie Hospital!

Helloo :)Here's some WIP photos of the hospital I am making. It's a prototype so make sure I get sizes/proportions correct. It's all pretty much working so far.


I have started off by making a ward. It will have 8 beds in it, a front reception desk, and a bathroom/toilet in the main ward room. Towards the back I decided to put an "extension" on, which will include a "Day Room", storage room, and another toilet/shower room, as it's a ward, you need a few toilets... one may cause problems :P As it is a prototype, the "proper" ward will have long continuous sides of foam board, rather than a separate piece for the day room.


To the bottom right of the photo is a nice chocolate/caramel shortbread cake... I recommend them, they taste goooooood!



The photo to the right now has interior walls! It took ages to line all the windows up and repaint the walls.

I decided to put some beds in there to show scale along with a few "survivors" from various companies.

Photo to the left shows the exterior view. Larger windows in the day room. A smaller window can be seen at the far end where the toilet will be. We don't want people peeking whilst someone is in there!!!

A close up of the day room shows the banana man chatting up Ashley Campbell from Hasslefree (Nice one banana man!) The plain white wall is a WIP of where the bathroom/storage room will be.

FINALLY... I took ages colouring in all those blue squares(using Photoshop) ...totally forgetting that I could have just created a small area and copy and pasted it all!!!!! Oh well, it's done now and looks pretty decent. I plan to have about 6 wards. Each with it's own unique colour, so pink for maternity ward and other colours for random wards. Makes it a bit different rather than all the same.
The hospital will be quite large, but it's meant to be the main focus/scenario of a possible game, such as clear the hospital of all infected and save any survivors... so there may only be a small exterior surrounding it.

I plan to make it so that it will be a number of pieces which are connected together. So the hospital can either have loads of wards spread over one floor, or be a small but tall hospital or whatever I feel like at the time I play. What I mean is, it's not a set size, it can be altered, so it can be made bigger or smaller and any shape, that's the plan anyway if that makes any sense??

So that's all for now. Hopefully tomorrow we'll try casting the beds again so fingers crossed. Oh apparently the zombie nurses are being case today... so we'll see what happens with those. Fingers crossed they'll be ready soon (I know I keep saying that....).


Cheers for reading! Now I'm off to eat some fish and chips...yum! :)

  1. Wow, that looks great. Beds look even better now, hehe!

    You can just make one large hospital and call it a board. Make up easy rules and you got yourself an nice way to present your products to the customers on conventions! Or just forget about the rules, miniatures still look way better paired with a good scenery.

    3. Cheers mate! Yeah that's a great idea! We plan to play a game using all out accessories, like trees, beds, figures to kinda promote them but have a game at the same time. It would make a great center piece at a convention!

  3. I'm loving how this is turning out, Carl. You're off to a great start. Hospitals are so big nowadays that, as Mathyoo said, you could easily cover a table with the hospital and nothing else. The hospital that I live close to covers so much ground it's like a town in itself. Obviously you could never build something that big but for any hospital model, big is best.

  7. Firstly let me say I really like it. I must say the wall colour is 100% spot on.
    Fantastic start of what promises to be an excellent build.

    1. Thanks Clint! I wasn't 100% sure about the cream colour when I first did it. I thought it was a bit strong, but it's growing on me :)

  9. Good job. I can't wait to see your take on the morgue. Will you be modelling any terrain for that; maybe a dissection table, or a wall of corpse lockers?

    1. Cheers! I will probably make some morgue related items when I get to building the morgue part :)

    2. Well that would be great! The Stoelzel's hospital I mentioned before is more of a small clinic, whereas what you are putting together is more of a genuine NHS-type hospital and I want it!! ;)

    3. I agree, the Stoelzel one is a great building, but just too small for full scale hospital. It'll take a while to finish the one I am building, especially if I am to sell it. But I'll keep updating my blog with any/every progress which occurs :)
