Walking Dead Wednesday: Last Of The Tokens

As mentioned earlier, I wasn’t happy seeing more of the original color tokens on the board so I went and remade a few of the last ones and Reese was able to print them up quickly. There are still a few tokens left but they are for specific scenarios so I’ll deal with them as they come.

Walking Dead Wednesday: More Inking

With the Thanksgiving Holiday came a much needed break. Things are still pretty hectic but I’ve still been able to work on some projects. Mainly, more of my Inked re-theme of The Walking Dead Here’s Negan board game. Having gotten the figures mostly complete, I’ve run into the same issue I usually have with these ventures: terrain.

Walking Dead Wednesday: Here’s Negan Inked part 2

Continuing on with my Here’s Negan set Inked, I have the “heroes” wrapped up. For some of the inspiration, I went back to the Here’s Negan comic and pulled from there. I debated going black for most of the pants but found an issue when inking these models- I can’t reach everywhere with the pen.

Walking Dead Wednesday: Here’s Negan Inked!

I initially called this “comic styling” or “sketched” but in doing a little more research, lining an all white mini in heavy black ink is more akin to what a comic book inker would do. This process in comic books is the final stage before the colorist and letterer finish the comic book proper. The inker would clean up the original artist’s pencil lines and decide on balance with the final black lining. There is a lot more art to it than simple tracing (as Chasing Amy would argue).

I’m no artist so I’m basically tracing but I’ll try to achieve a higher calling and call it “inking.” After having my first attempt sitting on my desk, I couldn’t stop checking it out so I’ve decided to go full bore and Ink all of Mantic’s Here’s Negan Walking Dead board game.

Walking Dead Wednesday: Comic Styling

It’s almost Halloween and that has me looking at horror-themed games, especially Walking Dead. While I haven’t found time to put it in the general rotation, I did have an experiment I wanted to try out. I’ve seen some very talented painters do things in a comic-style paint scheme and I wanted to try it out a little bit but in my own way.

Gen Con 2019: Haul

With Gen Con over and my Recaps done, I finally had time to put everything away and get life back to normal. While putting everything back is never the most exciting thing to do, it does give me time to see what all I came home with.

Walking Dead Wednesday: Wave 5 News And Thoughts

Lots of Walking Dead: All Out War news is coming in from Mantic now.  Their blog is dedicating the week to hype up the upcoming fifth Wave of the game and even though I was a little down based on the news I heard from Gen Con, the content for Wave 5 is still sounding strong.

Walking Dead Wednesday: Gen Con 2018

So I fixed all the sideways image files.  Uploading from my phone tends to do that.  The good news is I figured out a workaround for future phone posting.  Even better news is that I carved out some time to wrap up my Walking Dead doings at Gen Con.
