A few weeks ago I got a copy of Walking Dead All Out War by Mantic Entertainment. Before I get to my first batch of models I want to talk about the product itself a bit.
I've bought some Mantic stuff in the past and I've seen a bunch of their stuff that I hadn't personally purchased by way of my friends. Based on my experience I had actually decided to pass on Walking Dead because I had not been satisfied with the models I had previously purchased. When I saw Walking Dead in the shop the core game had a window in the front of the box showing 6 of the figures, which was a great choice because the models were fantastic and MUCH better than I expected. At every turn as I went through the box (and 3 more subsequent boxes) I've gotten more and more impressed. The game has solo play rules, which I thought was great. In addition I didn't realise until I opened my fourth box that every zombie figure is unique, there are no duplicates in any box I've opened or from one box to the next. So so far I have 19 unique zombie figures to add my collection! Last (and probably least) someone at Mantic decided that the figures integral bases should be the same diameter and thickness as a traditional 25mm slotta-base, its a bonus because it means they will blend in with my existing zombie and survivor models.
So far tonight I've managed to paint 6 zombies.
If I'm successful in not falling asleep in the next few minutes then I will hopefully finish another half dozen zombies tonight and then I can hopefully get my first three survivors done tomorrow.
