Pimp My Board Game

a pursuit of fruitless endeavors and endless refinements

Walking Dead: Farm Livin’

With my latest Pit session ending my run through of the hammer figures, I wanted to get back to the campaign side of The Walking Dead: All Out War again.  One of the things that slowed me down was getting the maps done.  Since I like using the official maps but their color scheme doesn’t match my B/W scheme, I need to scan the maps, edit them into B/W and then reprint.

FedEx Office had the scanner so that went pretty fast and was ultimately only about $3 per map when I had the machine convert it to grayscale for me.  The biggest issue is that the maps are folded even more so than from the core set and it makes for some garish lines.

Walking Dead Wednesday: Tyreese Lays The Hammer Down

One victim remains in the Pit: Hammer Showdown. Tyreese, Prison Advisor is a weaker option than Pro-Football Tyreese (the current Pit King) but I decided to deck him out like his figure even though it breaks my normal 75 point limit.

Walking Dead Wednesday: Rage Kills

I was able to dig out a little and get another Pit game in this week. This week, we stick around with Tyreese and continue with the “who wielded it best” competition.

Tyreese, Blinded By Rage is up next.  I had to bend the 75 point limit a bit to keep Tyreese in the “hammer builds” so he weighs in at a bloated 85 points. I don’t have a lot of confidence in this iteration of Tyreese as his damage output doesn’t look much better than Pro-Football Tyreese and he’s 11 points more.  He also has a bad power, “Raging!” that ups threat even faster, which will make this pit venture harder.

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.

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.

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.

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.
