Some questions about ATZ

First of all welcome to three new followers: Veloci, S, and RSpears192.  Hope you enjoy the blog.
I recently picked up All Things Zombie by Two Hour Wargames.  I'm a huge zombie fan (as evidenced by EOW) and was also in the market for a solo wargame.  I know the game is way popular and there are several campaign blogs about ATZ out there, and I have a few questions about the game.

  • how many zombie miniatures do I need?  Two dozen?  More?
  • how many civilian miniatures do I need?
One of the things I really need to do is find a game, though.  I'd settle for either an RPG or a wargame, just something to get me out of the house.
