Reaper Bones review #144: Deputy Wayne Tisdale

See also

Until recently, the modern sheriff archetype was more associated with Sheriff Andy Taylor of The Andy Griffith Show than the zombie apocalypse. But then The Walking Dead came along, and Sheriff Rick Grimes changed everything. Okay, so this is Deputy Wayne Tisdale, not Sheriff Wayne Tisdale, but you get the idea.

There's not too much about Tisdale that makes him a modern sheriff. He could fit in just about anywhere, with the exception of the walkie-talkie strapped to his belt. Just about any modern game that's not in an urban area could use a miniature like this.

Joke's on us though -- although you might think Tisdale is based off of more recent sheriff archetypes, the sheriff looks a lot like this guy, AKA Boss Hogg.  Which makes Tisdale Rosco Purvis Coltrane.  So by all accounts it looks like Reaper decided to market Tisdale separately from his fatter companion, and voila! Instant zombie action hero.  Context is everything. You can purchase this miniature at Amazon.
