Its very much about groups of survivors battling it out over limited resources, the walkers are treated as a hazard rather than a player option.  

Viable tactics include attracting the walkers to your opponents.

If I'm spending a C note and more, I want a hell of a lot more than I'm seeing here. http://toyland.gizmodo.com/roll-dice-to-smash-in-zombie-heads-with-the-walking-dea-1755043808

Mantic Games have the licence for a skirmish level game set in the Walking Dead comics, kickstarter to commence in February.   Live now   https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1744629938/the-walkin

I love the Walking Dead but, from my experiences with their other projects, I will not be backing this one.  Their fulfillment system is too accident prone and, when mistakes happen, they aren't quick

 

I don't think it could be compared it with Mars Attacks, because it was a board game. A skirmish miniature game is a completely different niveau, like Warlord made from Reaper Miniatures or Mortheim.

 

Aside from squares instead of inches, MA was very much a skirmish miniature game. It had LOS, terrain, armies, and other traits of skirmish miniatures game (although boardgames like Descent do as well). MA sure doesn't have the cubes, resource mechanics, and card hands like many boardgames do.

 

BUT I'm talking about the target audience, not really the mechanics. Unlike Dreadball and Dungeon Saga, MA and TWD both are licensed games. So, presumably, they would attracted an audience interested in the license, namely a more casual gamer than, say, Dreadball, Deadzone, or Kings of War. If boardgamers don't like assembled miniatures or painting miniatures, and don't mind softer plastic, I'd presume these more casual gamers won't, either.

The Mantic blog has some pictures of what is presumably the game on the short video.

Also some of the minis.  I can't tell what they are made of, but Coral (sorry Carl) looks good.

I can't see any images, and the video is too bad quality to make anything out.....is there another video?

Yeah. Bell of Lost Souls has a video.

 

DaveC summarized the KS:

Set amount of stuff to fund once funded that's it regardless of how long the KS has left to run. 
Ronnie mentions that if they do fund everything it will be their biggest KS so they have planned beyond $1.2 million then. 
Base pledge $100 - $125 
1 pledge level only all in no add ons to prevent packing mistakes. 
Retail starter box £35/$50. 
Papermat and card terrain in box. KS may fund 3D terrain. 
Retail blisters $12.50/$20 - 1 Hero, 1 secondary hero, 1 unique zombie, character and equipment cards 
A few unique heroes will be retail only - not available in KS 
120 sculpts in the product range. Sculpts are bulkier and a bit bigger than Mars Attacks and DS

To save themselves the headaches and criticisms from their past kickstarters, I sure hope they do.

They have looked long and hard at how their kickstarters have been delivered, and made substantial changes especially regarding add-ons (details in the latest newsletter).  Hopefully this will help this Kickstarter run smoothly.

The only pledge is going to be $125 (although I think there are probably going to be early birds)

 

If the thing blows up there may be 2-3 add ons to get too, but basically it's going to be a one and done style thing (to aid them getting things right in the warehouse)

      A Viking Girl sculpted by Bobby Jackson. She was a lot of fun to paint since she had a lot of canvas for freehand work. She is also my first serious effort at NMM, so that's a well I plan to return to.
       
      I came to paint her when I asked my friends which model needed to get some love next. I presented a wizard, a ranger, and an armored lady fighter. One chimes in that she'd like to see the fighter (she being a practitioner of HEMA). Her boyfriend mentions something about boob armor. I said, no, she's got pretty normal armor. You want to see something egregious? THIS is egregious. My HEMA friend immediately says, "I'd like to change my vote." So here we are.
       
      Here's the WIP thread for her. Here's my next piece.

      This has sod all to do with miniatures, but I would be surprised if there were not people who might want one of these pins, for literally any reason at all.
      I'll let the campaign speak for itself, as I usually do; it is pins. There are, as the title implies, representations for most of the common faiths, in a literal rainbow of ... well, Pride rainbows.

      "You take your game seriously. Now it's time for a serious screen.
      In October of 2018, Dog Might released the first fully sculpted GM Screen, the Valhalla Screen. Since then, we have released over 30 more designs, including officially licensed screens for: Pathfinder, Call of Cthulhu, and Vampire: The Masquerade. We have also designed screens for you favorite shows, such as Relics and Rarities and the Critical Role stream of Undeadwood. Over the last year and a half, our Valhalla Screens have proven to be our most sought after product. "
       
      ... Would it surprise anybody here to know I want one? 
      If I can't have one, at least I can spread the word. ;p
