Walking Dead Weekend Edition… Mantic’s Spring Open Day

Just a quick note since the images will be lost on Facebook after a few days, Mantic hosted their Spring Open Day and had a few preview images to show off.  All images were from Mantic’s Facebook page.

I previewed the Governor’s gruesome “TV” display earlier when it was leaked on Facebook before but now we have this image to show more of what this set might include.

Everything Old Is New Again

The big announcement this week was Fantasy Flight revising its cash cow, X-wing Miniatures game to a shiny 2.0.

X-wing has been so many things to me over the years but the game system was getting long in the tooth and I welcome the overhaul.

Walking Dead Wednesday: The Last Hammer

Still not a lot of time the week but I did find my paints and quickly finished up the last of the hammer figures: Tyreese, Prison Advisor. Of course my camera and lighting is also still packed away as well so we’ll have to deal with the dining lights and iphone camera.

Walking Dead Wednesday: Upcoming Gen Con Events

Sorry, no Pit session today but this past weekend marked the annual Gen Con event list release. While the list isn’t exhaustive, as it only includes those that registered events during initial registration period, it is the bulk of the events that you’ll see and a good bell weather for what is hot right now.

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.

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.

Gotta Start Somewhere

With the realization that I have a lot of Walking Dead to get through and most of my other project material is packed away, I decided to hit up the dead in earnest.

I’d been wanting to try the Armored Walkers for awhile now so I decided to experiment a bit on them.

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.
