This is the image I did, to get on the film World War Z with Marc Forster, director of Quantum of Solace. Can't say whats going on or what the outcome is right now.

I have to thank `Rahll for this one as he was there the entire time to back me up, help and come up with ideas. I really have to give him a huge thanks for this. For that, you became the retarded camera man.

And ~MexMarco for the help as well, when I felt down over the image in the beginning he really gave me a good speech that made me re-think it all over and eventually inspired me to finish it.

So enjoy guys :] Look for all the hidden goodies!!

WWZ - The Battle of Yonkers - by `adonihs is a jawdropping work of art, and an outstanding wallpaper. I don't think there are enough words to explain how amazing it is. Do have a look at `adonihs's brilliant gallery! ( Suggested by Oosaki-Nana and Featured by archanN )

In almost every zombie apocalypse story I have read or watched the army is quickly overwhelmed by the aforementioned zombies. To simply put, I find it hard to believe that a hoard of zombies could easily overwhelm some of the most well equipped and well trained armies in the world.

Well if you read the book, you would have knew how they got overrun. Almost over 10 million zombies vs thousands of troops...

That's because realistically, they can't. They only way Yonkers could have gone the way it did in the book is because the Author wanted it to.

I *have* read the passage in question. And those reasons were the kind of things the US Army has specifically stated never to allow to happen.

Yes but the US Army is kinda stupid.
Reply
:iconsamaszero:
SAMASzero Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2015
The stupidity in question was (primarily) in not following two specific rules:

A: Never let someone outside the chain of command dictate strategy. The Army learned this specific lesson from making that very mistake in Vietnam, and refused all attempts to do so in the Gulf Wars.

B: Always bring more than enough ammo. In WWII, the US Army made enough bullets to kill the entire population of 1940's Earth a good four or five times over.  *Small Arms* bullets. Not counting grenades, artillery shells, bombs, and the like.

There's stupid, and then there's "Not following Rule #1 and Rule #2 in your own rulebook."

If you want realistic zombie vs army, watch Shaun of the Dead. The main civilian characters have a hard time for a day or so, then the army shows up and its over in a few minutes.

To be honest, not all of it is exactly the Battle of Yonkers as I heard it...according to Todd Wainio, the only things that the US government did right in that fight were to evacuate the civilians, and funnel the zombies into one choke point. There was nobody on the rooftops, but the zombies swarming in on the troops seems to be fairly accurate as they would eventually leave the choke point and fall upon the US army.

Either way however, this is a rather good piece, and a good rendition of that ill-fated battle.

I shall add this to my favorites due to your skill.

Yeah but remember when he's explaining that they fought hundreds to thousands of hordes never knowing where it stops
And thos lame ass bombs that only crippled the zombies and made the sky grey and full of shrapnel 

So I would say it is a very good representation

I didn't say it was bad...just a few things were off.

Still, I doubt you can go wrong when Mark Hamill is among the voices in the audiobook version...playing as Wainio.

I was really hoping this would've made it into the film (though it looked like some elements of it made it into the Israel portion of the film). That being said, it was still pretty good to be honest.

Nicely drawn. And the most terrifying thing is that, given Humanity's perchance for stupidity and ego, idiocy like the Battle of Yonkers could actually happen in real life.
