The Walking Dead: All Out War


Recommended Posts

My guess is this is the very base game which will NOT cost $100 in the shops. Backing the project, will cost you over 100, but I guess you'll get a lot extra (like it happened with Dungeon Saga).


On the other hand, I'm so disappointed with Mantic's behavior concerning the Dungeon Saga Kickstarter that I'll not be backing this (no matter what and made easier by the fact that I'm not interested in the setting).

Looking at the image of the boxed game I wonder if there are plans for model vehicles, buildings (like the Mars Attacks ones) and better quality counters.

The booster sets may also go some way to filling the spend gap, but seeing Mantic's other Kickstarters I have no worries that the end will be well worth the price point.


But, if they don't do Daryl......

Bell of Lost Souls says that retail will be $50/£35.


The promo shot shows 18 miniatures, and Mantic said (in the comments to one of their blog postings) that a dozen walkers would sound out a game nicely.


Not a bad haul for the price point.  Will I be in?  No.  Nothing against Mantic as I've never backed one of their projects, but I just don't see myself ever really getting the opportunity to play.

So this has gone live, and funded in a blink of an eye, now chasing the obligatory really-should-have-been-in-the-base-game-in-the.first-place strech goals.


And it is going to need to fund a great many stretch goals to match the "percieved value for money"  singular pledge cost of USD 125 if the base game is going to retail at USD 50. 


I predict lots of butt-hurt whining and raging negativity will happen, especially in light of the Dungeon Saga reprints and Warpath material switch.

Does anyone else think an "early bird" pledge level should just be a level open only for the first day of the campaign rather than a number? The pledge delay makes it terrible from a user/buyer standpoint and the page reloading to get them is bad for kickstarter.

Whilst I think Kickstarter might be well served by allowing time-limited pledge levels, it'd also have to force companies like Mantic and CMON to actually use those. And no way they're going to bite the hand that feeds them...


Wait, did you mean companies like Mantic and CMON should offer an EB level that after 24 hours (or whatever) they close on their end? Like hell they're going to do anything that might jeopardize the 'funded in the blink of an eye' hype...


Well I got an EB before bothering to read, just in case. Odds on that being one of those EBs that get tossed back into the hat eventually. Not really impressed with it yet, and more survivors/zombies aren't going to change that.

BGG'ers have been unhappy with EB's since forever. Some KS -- including Mantic -- have had pledges and offers that were limited by time (eg. convention weekend specials) rather than quantity.


I'm just irritated that we're spending 10K+ on a mold of a tertiary character I can't even remember -- despite reading the comic series two or three times.

Took a look and I'm hugely disappointed. If it's based off the comics, where are the main characters? I see Rick, Carl, and Dale. The project had to unlock Shane and Lori?? What about Tyrese, Glenn, Michonne, Maggie, and some of the people from the Governor's camp? While on the subject of human miniatures, why would I ever field a miniature that looks like (s)he's going to take a number 2 in their pants in a battle type game?


--- edit ---

Just looked at the newest update. Michonne and Andrea.

Good news: They're not saving Michonne for retail-only waves.


Bad news: She looks like a mechanic.




I mean, compare these miniatures with, say, CMON's Zombicide survivor range:  http://zombicide.com/img/rm_minis_s.jpg


And the $15 MSRP Michonne action figure costs less than her $20 MSRP booster pack (multiple figures): http://cdn3.volusion.com/ondfq.dtexo/v/vspfiles/photos/MFWD45717-2T.jpg?1422492707

      Got inspired by @R2ED to paint some monochome zombies. Quite happy with the result.
      Coal black, Maggot White, and added some Ebony Skin for the shadows. So - not really monochome, but let's not be too picky 😇

      "The deep underground ocean known as the Shadow Sea has held mysteries for thousands of years, remains of ruined civilizations that built advanced cities and technological wonders in the abyssal depths. As the world of Theira falls into chaos, small bands of adventurers and mercenaries dive into the waters of the underground sea to hunt for the legendary ruins of Darkstar Rift for treasures and artifacts that can help their forces survive the cataclysm of war."

      This is the 22nd project my wife and I have worked side by side together on. Posted tbis on Facebook but first time adding our project to the forums. I hope you like our Interpretation of the KS  Mammoth not sure if the is a SKU for it. C&C more than welcome. Felt with it being a mammoth a more wintery theme should be more in keeping. Enjoy. Stay safe in these troubled times.

      I know there are a few folks that do Bolt Action and similar 28mm wargaming (@buglips), so I thought I'd bounce this out there.
      Railroads are an important means to transport troops, equipment, ammunition and all other kinds of supply to the front. Especially in a country as vast as the Soviet Union with it's endless steppes, only few reliable roads and no major rivers running in the direction of the German advance during Operation Barbarossa in World War II. 
      With this set of detailed buildings and rolling stock in 1/56 scale for 28mm figures you get the opportunity to recreate the crucial fighting around the Soviet railroad system.
      The kits focus on the major pieces of rolling stock available to the Soviet defenders: box cars, gondola cars and flat cars. And the mighty ALCo RSD-1 Diesel Engine which was made available under the US Lend-Lease Act.
      Also included is a typical rural train station with optional additional platforms for all who want to depict a Soviet - or captured German - supply depot, where heavy equipment like tanks and guns are being unloaded.
      And for all of you looking for an armored train - don't worry! We have you covered.
        Talking about railroad tracks:
      We did not see the need to reinvent the wheel, so all kits are designed to be used with
      4Ground Railroad Tracks (available as add-ons to the Kickstarter) or O Gauge Model Railroad Tracks The kits include optional parts enabling you to choose your favorite system while assembling. Going this route has allowed us to concentrate on designing and producing the rolling stock only, which has the advantage of an earlier fulfillment date for the Kickstarter.
      All models are highly detailed on the outside and inside. The interiors are easily accessible, as roofs are removable. In addition, all doors are moveable, which means you can open or close them during gameplay.

      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.
