Walking Dead Wednesday: The Quick And The Dead

Nothing new on the painting front for Walking Dead: All Out War this week but I did catch a whiff of something beyond wave four on the horizon: The Governor’s Fish Tanks in another Resin kit.

Looks like it was accidentally leaked by a store in their preview entries and a Facebook user caught it. Eventually Steward Gibbs of Mantic confirmed the release and provided the above image.

Walking Dead Wednesday: Tiger, Tiger…

…Burning bright,
In the forests of the night,
What immortal hand or eye
Could frame thy fearful symmetry?

-William Blake

Rawr! It’s Shiva painting time!

Stop Humping The Laser

Last weekend I got a chance to use my Laser again in another Dropzone Commander game.  This time it was with some friends in a three-army free-for-all.

Walking Dead Wednesday (Evening Edition): Pit Buddies

Alright, so with my new Sniper variant underway, I wanted to break for a little bit before hitting up my next session of The Pit.

This time, we’re going to throw in another twofer (Pit be hungry, yo) with Billy & Ben.

Walking Dead Wednesday: Family Day At The Pit

Thanks to Facebook poster, William Cuthbertson had an interesting suggestion to run a parent/child combo into The Pit. I liked the idea so I grabbed Morgan and Duane and started to set them up.  I soon realized that this Pit session wouldn’t be complete unless the whole family was involved.

Mrs. Morgan wasn’t expecting the spotlight so she had to go under makeup.

Walking Dead Wednesday: Dale, Prison Advisor

I recently picked up a Collector’s Edition set of Walking Dead: All Out War even though I own about 90% of it already. Why? Well, I really wanted the two show exclusive packages that came with it and figured I could always put the other duplicate components to use later.

One of the figures that caught my eye was the next incarnation of Dale, his “Prison Advisor” role.

Walking Dead: All Out War: Extra Session

Riding high from my win in the first Miles Behind Us scenario using my Hardcore rules, I decided to push on and hit Chapter 2: Leaving Wiltshire Estates.

edit: rules recap:

Hardcore Mode:

  • When a card says to move or select a walker, choose a survivor and select the closest walker to that survivor. That walker then activates or moves to the nearest survivor.
  • When walkers enter play, choose a character and place the walker as close to that survivor as possible per the normal rules (not within the survivor’s killzone).
  • If a character takes the Hold Your Nerve action, it is the only action the character can take that turn.

Walking Dead Wednesday: Solo Scenario Sessions

Lately, I’ve been troubled by the lack of challenge in the Walking Dead: All Out War scenarios.  I played through the Days Gone Bye scenarios and only found them challenging when “role-playing” a character to do non-strategic moves or artificially inflating the challenge like adding the Night Fighting event card.

I decided to give the next crop of scenarios one last shot before I start making some sweeping changes.
