A bunch of painted Mantic "The Walking Dead" photos

Hey all!

Well, just eye candy today... no story, no game, just terrain and figures!

Some more set-ups for the Walking Dead campaign...

Played a few more missions of the campaign with my son!  We left the kid at base for a few missions, to try to conserve food.  We actually found a few weapons stores, and some food and medical supplies, so we are in decent shape... for now.

Here two of our survivors move through a small park, keeping an eye on a zombie who seems to be keeping an eye on them...

Here was another mission, this time gathering medical supplies.  We did well on this one, managing to gather most of the supplies on the board.

Anyway... its just eye candy, but thought folks might like it!

Started a new "Walking Dead" campaign

Hey all!

As promised, I HAVE been doing stuff lately.  I took just a COUPLE of photos of the most recent thing... a Walking Dead campaign game my son and I are playing.

With our initial 60 points, we bought three survivors... a man, a woman, and a kid (Carl, but we used a girl figure, so we are calling her Carla...)  The first few missions went okay, although we didn't find a lot of food, and our guys started to starve.  We DID find a pistol, which we are saving until things go badly.

The mission above (a "Surrounded!" mission) went SUPER quick... there was only a single supply, and it started right next to us, so we grabbed it and ran!

We began to leave the kid behind on missions, so that she could rest... our lack of food was causing some issues.  This was our next mission... a food supply run.  The traffic jam would give us some cover... I pity the poor people caught in that jam, who were likely torn to pieces!

This mission STARTED well... supplies right near the entrance, and zombies being  pulled to the red car by a car alarm going off, allowing our two survivors to skirt around the edge of the board towards the supplies near the rusted Coca Cola van...

But things can go south QUICK.  As the car alarm drew more and more zombies to the area they got more and more agitated, and suddenly a swarm of zombies noticed us and shambled down the street, coming our way!

Thankfully we were able to just turn and flee, having found enough food to supply our group for a bit and also a piece of body armor for my woman!

Here is the latest board... it's a medical supply run, which is good... we will see how it goes!

BTW, if you want to see the rough rules I used for the solo campaign, here they are!

Star Wars Legion: Death Troopers

Hey all!

Well, I know it has been quiet, but no worries, I'm still here and working on stuff... just been a bit busy with children and a job and a wife who works, which leaves little to no time for blogging.

But I'm here!  And there is lots of cool stuff that I've finished!

First up... some Death Troopers!  While I generally like original trilogy stuff, these guys I feel like are fine... they fit in thematically, and they give the Empire a cool elite trooper who stands out.

Overall I'm happy with how they turned out, but damn, I do NOT like painting black.  I'll definitely not be doing another unit of these any time soon!

Anyway... I took some more photos since I had the camera out, so I'll post more minis in the near future!:)
