Star Wars Zombie Stormtroopers by Robert-Shane Star Wars Zombie Stormtroopers by Robert-Shane
Don't be afraid - no actual Stormtroopers were harmed in the making of this picture!

I was contacted by :iconlodgeboy: - who asked whether I'd be interested in drawing a picture for his Left 4 Dead 2 Mod which he's calling ZombieTroopers. He said it would be based on the book Deadtroopers and feature Boba Fett, Aurra Sing, IG-88 and Bossk - all battling some Zombie Stormtroopers in a destroyed city that looks like Corusant.
(Find out more at: [link] )

I liked the idea very much (I like drawing Stormtroopers - even if they are all ickey and bitey) - so I took the brief and turned out what you see here!

I originally drew this in pencil, then scanned it and coloured it in Photoshop using a Wacom tablet. This is a web-optimised version of the image (it is a 100mb bitmap at 600dpi!)

Hope you like it... and please don't have nightmares!

This would make an interesting story. The Bounty Hunters for the Empire, Imperial Remnant, First Order, whatever it maybe...discover Vader's leftover Blackwing virus effect people to a degree. And then some of the Imperials who have access to the leftover rusting CIS battle droids realize that droids that are taking up space and need to be discarded might serve a final purpose-since droids can't be infected and are fighting dumb zombies, the leftover decaying battle droids would be best for finishing off a few waves of the zombie virus.

Looks like it could be a game like Left 4 Dead or Vermintide.

 IG-88 is the only one here who doesn't have to worry. No matter how hard they bite, they can't cause any harm to him. I don't see how the rest of them are going to get out of this one!

Nice art, there is also a whole book out there about this theme. Star Wars Death Troopers i think it was named. It was a very creppy book.

They've got IG-88B (or is it D?) with them, so he's already got contamination/decontamination things that could easily wipe the death troopers out no problem. Probably why the only one who's nervous is Bossk.

?you got me - sorry I don't know if it's IG-88B or D - I just drew it intending it to be the version seen in Empire.

Eh, it's probably D. B has a lot more spokes and odd things on his head.

Cool - yes. Thanks for taking the trouble to ask Connor - but please do make sure to credit me and you mustn't use my art in any commercial way.

I'd love to see Battlefront 3 (I played the other two to death) - I don't think it'll happen now - but I guess that's what your campaign's for! Good luck! :)

BWS2K Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2012
Sure! 1) It's Star Wars. 2) It's got zombies. 3) I love when someone makes a sort of crossover where something happens in a mythos that isn't at all expected there. Maybe this actually happens somewhere, I'm not a super hardcore SW fan, but I've never thought about it. I also enjoy that it's bounty hunters doing to surviving here - not what you would typically consider as the "good guys". Makes them more nasty I think. Great piece!

But why would they go after IG-88??
and if I were Boba...my exact plan of action is this...
1) Jetpack to high ground/saftey
2) laugh at comrads down below as I call in Slave I
3) Head to safe distance
4) Seismic charges galore
