I’m still working on the Dracula’s America posse builder as friend Reese offered to help run some validation in the file. He’s already finished it, I’m just behind in checking it over. In the mean time, I set up Act II of my solo campaign and gave it a run through to figure out if I need to make any tweaks.
We’re nearing the end of January and with it, the dusty winds of Little Church will blow through and push me on to next month’s project. But before we leave this dry patch of sepia-tinted earth, I have one last thing to do: Play! Of course, last month I had the chance to put it all on the table but I wasn’t quite ready. With everything I’ve done now, I want to get in a good show before I move on. With no opponents around, I jumped into a solo game.
After finally getting a game in of Dracula’s America while out with Taylor, I saw some glaring holes in my setup and I’m taking the month of January to fix up and “finalize” my whole old west setup. The biggest error was missing the fact that the full game needs bystanders and I had none prepared, not even some languishing unopened in a box or drawer. I promptly ordered what I needed and used the shipping time to fix up some of my terrain as well.
The week is winding down but I have a few final things that were completed just under the wire. The first is one of my first attempts at scatter terrain. I don’t do a lot of this as I usually buy a scenery piece and paint it up. This time I wanted to have some bamboo-based terrain and that isn’t easy to outright buy so I had to make my own.
With all the work I’ve been doing on Mantic’s miniatures game, the Walking Dead: All Out War, I thought I’d start up a little sidebar post series that focuses on this game and other related topics.
I completed painting all 26 walkers from the kickstarter wave 1 shipment before Christmas but only now had time to take some quick shots of them. So here we have, Walker Class of 2016!
Ah yes, earlier this week my KS copy of The Walking Dead: All Out War came in. All things told, it came in pretty good shape for the way it was packed (I’ve been reading some horror stories on the KS campaign page but it also sounds like Mantic is taking care of those issues pretty quickly).
I’ve been pretty excited for The Walking Dead: All Out War miniatures game from Mantic for some time now and as of late last week, the first wave of Kickstarter pledges are shipping. Mantic being UK based, I’m not likely to receive my pledge for another week or so but I decided to celebrate by test painting one of the free promo Walkers I picked up at Gen Con.
