Walking Dead Wednesday: Hammer Time Part 2

Continuing on with the “who wielded it best” series, we have Tyreese up with his hammer. Clementine came out swinging in her debut.  We’ll see if Tyreese can keep up.

Dropzone Commander Update From Across The Pond

Salute 2018 was this past weekend in London and while the new owners of Dropzone Commander didn’t put on the kind of spectacle that Hawk Wargames used to throw, they did have a few interesting items to pour over.

A New Contender In The Pew-Pew Arena

The news has been making the rounds across the websites but I thought I’d weigh in briefly on Ares Games’ announcement that they are developing a starship battle game set in the Battlestar Galactica universe. The game “scale” looks to be a dogfight scale game with players controlling a number of individual fighter scale ships.

Walking Dead Wednesday: Hammer Time!

To help focus my painting, I’ve decided to look at some themed Pit run-throughs. We’ve already seen that with my “kids night” session last week but this time I’m going to focus on figures with a particular weapon.

I’d already previewed these models last week but I figured it was time to try out this new series titled “who wielded it best.”  These next few sessions will showcase the hammer wielders Clementine and Tyreese.

Walking Dead Collection Complete

I finally have the last booster from The Walking Dead: All Out War wave 4 set and the collection is complete. Mantic has mentioned it already has wave 5 in the works but for now, I’m all caught up which means I have a lot of painting to do.

This is just the unpainted survivors.

Walking Dead Wednesday: Today, Kids Pit Free!

Today is unofficial Walking Dead Kids Day. I just declared it for no other reason than the fact that I painted up a few more survivors and they are decidedly pint-sized.

I’d already painted up Carl, Duane, and the Twins so I decided to finish out the “Children of The Walking Dead” by working on Clementine and Sophia.

Gaslands Deathrace Prep

Gaslands most popular game scenario is the “Deathrace” scenario featured prominently in the rulebook.  The main feature of the scenario is a last-man-standing race around a course, passing through various gates to get through the finish.  The Gaslands community has come up with a lot of different options for these gates but since I’m using a less popular scale at 10mm, I decided to check out some of the Dropzone Commander terrain out there and found a great set put out by 4Ground.

Accidental Find: Toy Terrain

The Gaslands Facebook page is a non-stop flow of treasure hunters looking for the next cool Hotwheels at their local supermarket or thrift store.  While I’m all set to use my half-scaled version from Dropzone Commander, I was curious to see what could be had at my local Walmart.

While not really something to post a “look at me!” thread on Facebook, I did find this little Cars 3 toy interesting for the flaming oil drums.  They looked like they were in scale with my 28-32mm terrain so I took a gamble and picked it.  If nothing else, the car could go to my boy and the obligatory other toys could go to rest of the minions when I got home.

Walking Dead Wednesday: Brawlin’ Bros

See I caught ’em wit a right hook, caught ’em wit a jab
Caught ’em wit an uppercut, kicked ’em in his ass

I have a lot of figures still to paint for Walking Dead: All Out War so I decided to start grouping them and today I have the pair of knuckle-sandwich throwing Survivors, Arnold Greene and Axel.
