You can buy a ton of zombies in a bag, if you want - I think you get 100 for $10, AND can get them in glow in the dark versions!It's kind of too bad that they look like crap though.
I'll stick with miniatures that can be painted and look good. If I really want them to glow I can get paint for that, too.

Only negative to your plan is cost.
I'm cheap I went for the bag-o-zombies. Slowly but surely I'll build a collection of the D&D minis for my fantasy game. Not sure what's best for a more modern game.
Me, I pre-ordered the zombies at 60 zombies for thirty dollars - and I won't feel ashamed putting them on the table. (I would rather spend the money and get good looking minis than buy a bag o' crappy plastic zombies, no matter how brightly they glow....) Plus, I do fantasy wargaming, so these will see use in multiple games. And it is not hard to flesh it out to 70 zombies, with arms and heads pushing their way out of the earth.
These zombies really are quite nice - especially when ranked up next to the GW zeds. I think that I will use the GW zombies as shambling zombies and these as fast zombies. Enough pieces are missing that I do not think that they would work that well as plague zombies - these guys are definitely dead, not victims of a disease. The ghouls by the same company also look quite good, and can swap parts with the zombies.
Trying the Army Painter colored primers for the first time.... Pale tan-green would not be my first choice, preferring a fleshier color, but it is fast. These zombies aren't wearing a lot in the way of clothes. I may need to try the skin tone primer on the next lot.
Their first use will likely be as feral ghouls in a Fallout game using Spycraft rules. There are few tells to label them as mediaeval or modern, so they can stand in for either.
