Zombicide: Toxic City Mall

Recommended Posts

Mine arrived Friday.

Question for you guys? How many of you are painting the fig and how many are simply going 'heh it's a board game, so no painting needed'?

Bench is pretty much cleared off for the foreseeable future (just the manger left to finish by xmas)...we'll see how far I get, though. Raise the Dead pledge, each season 2 KS survivor, all the artist boxes.

Only four of the promo survivors are shipping in wave 1. The others and the artist boxes are coming in wave 2.

 

Mine arrived on Friday. CKPM still has nothing about it being sent.

Woo-hoo! Mine could be here tomorrow is what you're saying?

 

 

In theory...

 

In theory there's no difference between theory and practice. In practice there usually is.

Mine's still in the 'in transit' black hole...in my city. I was at the post office checking my box and forgot to ask if it was available for pickup (as I imagine it's scheduled to load onto a truck tomorrow or Wednesday). I've been ok with being patient, but I finished Luther early and don't want to start another project until the box gets here!

I hope you guys get it soon!

We had our second game at the FLGS with 8 players! It is really popular.

The next game is on Halloween night. ooooo creepy!

Dogs, both companion and zombiefied are cool.

I got the level that had Prison Outbreak but not Toxic City Mall. I got 2 characters that use a .45 and a flamethrower, but no item cards for them. I see now that the characters were supposed to be included in Toxic City Mall, so the cards were in that game making the characters useless. I am going to contact the KS and see if they can send the cards.

With some of them arriving before tracking information is even sent I guess mine is currently Schroedinger's Zombie.

My Raise the Dead showed up while I was home for lunch. The cat and I had fun poking through all the goodies, though it was pretty cursory as I had to get back to work. Still, pretty good timing for the new mailman who is usually an hour or two later on the route.

 

Which to paint first....

I keep seeing the piles of zombies and being intimidated into working on other stuff. I look forward to seeing your painted goodies though!

I think I'll start with a survivor or two. Then do one of each zombie type to learn the sculpts. Then get overwhelmed and throw them all back in the box :)

So, this may be slightly off topic, but how are you planning to do the berserk and toxic zombies to set them apart from the "normal" undead?

 

I've considered a few plans. One is to paint them as normal but leave the outer ring on the base showing with it's berserk/toxic color. I've also thought about painting as normal, then a bright (fluorescent?) wash of red or green as appropriate in hopes that is would look like they are permeated with their particular flavors of evil. My third thought is to paint them as normal, then do some reverse zenithal highlighting by shooting them lightly with an airbrush from below the mini using the appropriate color. Sort of an "uplighting" effect.

 

(this question is for anyone planning to paint their zombies)

      Andowyn Thrushmoor!
      It's been awhile since I've painted a plain ol' character miniature. I spent the better part of today working on her and I’m overall pleased with how she came out. I really want to double my skill level by the time Bones V is delivered and I’m proud of my progress! Slowly but surely figuring out how to do faces, this one looks pretty okay, though her right eye is funky.
       
      Since this is my first form post, the picture is her next to my first miniature! It's about four years old and I keep it around the rest of my collection in a place of honor

      If anybody here loves cavern terrain and missed DF's first cavern KS KS2, this spring/summer around June DF will have KS6. The theme of KS6 will be Return to the Caverns and should be great fun for those who took part in KS2 or those who are new to DF.

      DF had this to say and showed the below teaser pics

      We're doing for Caverns what Dungeon of Doom did for Dungeons. A whole new batch of fun pieces to enhance your existing collection, but also completely stand-alone.

      Some of the key features:
      New Core Shapes (diagonal wall, convex curves, 1" pieces, etc)
      Passages
      Elevation (with stuff that's impossible on graph paper...)
      Negative Space pieces (and new Terrain Trays)
      Flashy Pieces (Magnets & LEDs)
      Large pieces (4x4 and larger)

      This looks like a very interesting board game with lots of new, fresh ideas and cool artwork (and nice minis - there is even a pledge level for just the minis: around 15 of them for $20 plus shipping):
       
      About this project
       

      It's a harsh but lucrative business being a mercenary out on the edge of civilization. You must explore the harsh wilderness and engage in deep tactical combat, where the decisions you make have an impact not only on your own character, but also the world around you.

      Gloomhaven is cooperative game of card-driven combat set in a persistent fantasy campaign which will change and grow as you play the game.
      There is always more to unlock and explore in the world of Gloomhaven.

      If you missed the first Gloomhaven Kickstarter (and retail sold out quickly) here is your chance. I backed that game the first time around and could not be happier with the results. Warning ... that box is heavy ...
