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.

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.

Walking Dead Wednesday: Vanity Affair

The New Year is upon us and I thought I’d start up my Walking Dead Wednesdays again.  I don’t think I’ll be running these every week but we’ll see.  I’m hoping this will push me to get through my backlog of Walking Dead minis to paint up.

Adding to my minis, I decided to cut way ahead in line and paint up a very new addition to my Walking Dead minis: Me!

Walking Dead: All Out War Session – Ch. 3 Campfire Tales

In my comic sessions, I’d mapped out an order of the existing scenarios in the Days Gone Bye expansion to fit the storyline I wanted to create.  My goal in running those was to use the recommended set up so I could also follow the story and balance the designers were creating. In plotting our my own story, I couldn’t get one of the scenarios to fit so I decided to play it “straight” at the end of my 6 x 6 challenge.

Batman In The Dark

With my new lights in place (having been put through their paces in my latest Walking Dead comic session) and a pressing need to complete one more Batman Miniature Game before the year end for my 6 X 6 challenge, we put together our last Batman game of the year.

Testing My Honour

Right before Christmas, my friend came over jonesing for some gaming before the break.  After an interesting game of Photosynthesis with the missus, she adjourned and we had a few game options to hit as the night was still young.

We settled on trying out a new-to-us minis game: Test of Honour.  Test of Honour is a feudal Japan skirmish game centering around your Samurai Hero and his commoner followers.  Produced by Warlord Games, it is an inexpensive minis game (relatively speaking) as it has a pretty significant group of forces in the $50 core set.

Silverstone 2-Lap With Me And 7 AI Racers

The weather finally turned around here and killed my last Championship Formula Racing game night so I decided to end my 2017 CFR 6×6 challenge with a maxed-out solo race against seven Historical Drivers.

Gotham City Reconstruction Efforts

Over the summer, I had made up some street lights for the Batman Miniature Game.  I thought they turned out well but after playing with they, they weren’t quite right: they weren’t very bright, the connections were fiddly and only four of the six original ones work properly now.  So I was looking for a replacement and thought I found a good idea using a set of small lights and new posts to hang them on.

As described in my previous post, the new lamp posts were too small so I was going to have to mess around.
