Marching Orders

Not much going on as my hobby time has been significantly reduced but I did find a set of minis I got right before I moved.  This is a set of Westfalia’s Halfmen Goat Riders.

The Room Is Dead, Long Live The Room!

We finally completed our move and I had to say goodbye to my old gaming room in the basement.  We had it made up pretty much exactly how I wanted it (given the space confines) but the new house has none of that so I’m left with quite a spartan setup.

Walking Dead Wednesday: Upcoming Gen Con Events

Sorry, no Pit session today but this past weekend marked the annual Gen Con event list release.

The game “scale” looks to be a dogfight scale game with players controlling a number of individual fighter scale ships.

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.
