|Plastic Rick and Carl, from Mantic's Walking Dead game, flanked by Studio Miniatures' not-Rick and not-Carl|
This year's Christmas present to myself, after much head-scratching and research, was Mantic's The Waling Dead: All Out War core set, and a couple of expansions, because (a) ZOMBIES!!! and (b) it has really simple, and evocative, solo rules.
So far I've read the quickstart (but haven't given it a run through yet), watched the 'how to play'videos on Mantic's YouTube channel, and cooed over the beautifully-detailed, hard plastic sculpts that come in the box.
Naturally, being me, I'm already rifling through my old minis to see which are compatible, and researching online to find more zombie figures to invest in, to build up an unstoppable herd to shuffle from one of the table to the other, as well as contemporary scenery (particularly pre-made buildings that require neither painting not construction, as I am artistically inept) to decorate my table .
Project Z has arisen from its 2012 grave... and 2017 is going to be the year of the zombie...
