TWD Board: The Lay of the Land

Somewhere between painting up the miniatures included in the core set and getting the scenery counters started I had a look at the printed game mat.  It is a 20"x20" folded paper mat depicting an intersection somewhere within the zombie apocalypse.  "Fixed" terrain representations don't normally interest me but in the big picture it's intended to be modular with other map releases that can be butted together to make varied game areas.

TWD Survivors: No More Kid's Stuff

The 6 survivors are done and with them the contents of the Walking Dead core set are now complete.  At just 18 models this is probably a negligible achievement to most but I am a slow painter and easily distracted by other projects so I will take my victories where I can get them.

TWD: Aw Honey, look at you...

I just finished painting my walkers from Mantic's The Walking Dead: All Out War Core Set.  I ordered them shortly after Christmas and they arrived early in the New year.  It's a sleazy trick but it's my contest so these models bought and paid for in 2016 don't contribute to the shame pile but put 12 bloody swipes in the, "Colour Me Done" column for 2017.  I still have a few more temporal shenanigans courtesy of the order but I am going to have to be more diligent and conservative with my projects if I intend to stay out of the red.

Moving Forward: The Plan for 2017

Like most years 2016 meant that I neglected this blog.  Nothing new though but usually when I have had long spells of no posts I have also let my painting and modelling fall by the wayside as well; This wasn't the case.
