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.

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.

Striking While The Iron Is Hot

I thought I was going to get in another solo game of Championship Formula Racing but after prepping more Dropzone minis, I’ve gotten into a sort of painting rhythm and I might as well keep going while I can.

First up, I finished the last little unit for a potential army list I’ll likely try out at the next DZC meetup this month.

Lost Projects and Revisions

The weather last week was pretty great and seeing that the forecast would turn a bit colder, I used the opportunity to get the rest of my Walking Dead: All Out War minis primed.  Hopefully I can get into a routine again during the long winter nights and finish up the bulk of them.

6×6 Gaming Challenge: Mid-year recap

Now that we’re in July, I thought I’d take a quick moment to recap where I’m at with my 6×6 Gaming Challenge. I always keep the running total up-to-date at the top, under my “About” header.

The good news is every game on my list has been played at least once. Even better news is I’m sitting at 20 games/sessions played out of 36 for the challenge so I’m beating the curve by a good 5%.  Let’s look at the details:
