The Walking Dead Eeny, Meeny, Miny, Moe diorama unveiled

After a while teasing, we are delighted to finally announce Eeny, Meeny, Mine, Moe, a premium collector’s edition resin diorama will be released as part of The Walking Dead: All Out War Miniatures Game range. Working closely with Skybound Entertainment, we have recreated one of the most iconic scenes from Robert Kirkman’s best-selling comic book series in highly detailed resin. Eeny, Meeny, Miny, Moe portrays the dramatic moment Rick Grimes, his son Carl, Michonne, Maggie, Sophia and Glenn come face-to-face (or rather face to baseball bat) with the tyrannical Negan. Each Survivor is beautifully sculpted in 31mm scale, along with a diorama base to place each miniature on. The set also includes an ‘alternative’ head for Glenn. Due for release in March, Eeny, Meeny, Miny, Moe… costs $49.99/£34.99/€49.99 and can be pre-ordered from the Mantic Games website now. Included in the set are six resin miniatures, a resin diorama base and collector’s edition Survivor cards for Rick and Carl. What’s more, Negan can be removed and used as a gaming piece during play. The Walking Dead: All Out War from Mantic Games launched in December 2016 to critical acclaim in the tabletop gaming press. Geek & Sundry said: “this is [...]

Equipment Booster for The Walking Dead

It’s been a busy week over here on the blog, as we’ve been running through a host of Walking Dead news, including five reasons you should play, entries in our Brush with Death painting competition, some new gaming accessories and yesterday’s exciting announcement about Lee and Clementine. However, we’re not stopping there and today we’ve got a couple more updates for you! The first is that amidst the March releases in an Equipment Booster. Equipment plays a key part in The Walking Dead: All Out War, as you tool your Survivors up with a range of weaponry and accessories. Should Rick have a crossbow? Maybe Michonne should have some Gory Clothing to help disguise her from the Walkers? Although you get plenty of equipment in the Core Game and new pieces are included in the various boosters, we wanted to ensure you have more options when it comes to creating your gang. And that’s exactly where the Equipment Booster comes into play! The set includes 55 cards, featuring a mix of weapons of accessories to give your Survivors the edge. We worked closely with The Walking Dead: All Out War community to find out what items they would like in [...]

Lee and Clementine in The Walking Dead: All Out War from Mantic Games

Mantic Games is pleased to announce that after successfully launching The Walking Dead: All Out War Miniatures Game, based on the hit comic series by Robert Kirkman and Skybound Entertainment, it is now set to release incredibly detailed miniatures of Lee and Clementine, the stars of Telltale Games’ critically acclaimed episodic videogame series inspired by The Walking Dead. Fans of The Walking Dead: A Telltale Games Series will already be familiar with Lee and Clementine. In the tension-filled episodes, university professor and convicted criminal Lee rescues a young girl named Clementine and the pair must try to survive in the Walker-infested streets of Georgia.

Dungeon Saga is Back!

The adventure begins anew as the Dungeon Saga: The Dwarf King’s Quest core game and expansions are back in stock at the end of the month – if you weren’t able to get everything the first time, now’s your chance! Look out for Dungeon: The Dwarf King’s Quest and expansions being available in stores from the end of June, or pre-order now to reserve yours. What is Dungeon Saga: The Dwarf King’s Quest? Dungeon Saga: The Dwarf King’s Quest is the exciting 2-5 player dungeon crawling adventure game, set in the world of Mantica. One player takes control of the evil Necromancer, Mortibris. Bent of world domination, he seeks the legendary book of Valandor to expand his power. Opposing him are the four heroes, Danor, Madriga, Orlaf and Rordin. Each of these can be controlled by a player, or all of them controlled by one player (or any combination in between). The Necromancer raises his undead minions – skeletons, zombies, zombie trolls – to stop the heroes and bring them down. Though these creatures are not powerful foes, they have numbers and immortality (of a sort) on their side. As the heroes venture deeper into the dungeon, the threats get [...]

Five reasons to try The Walking Dead: All Out War

The Walking Dead: All Out War launched just before Christmas and in that short time it has become our most successful retail launch ever. We’ve already seen numerous unboxing videos, battle reports and painting guides but, unbelievably, we’ve been led to believe that some of you out there still haven’t played The Walking Dead: All Out War. So, here are our top six reasons why you need to play…  1. Recreate iconic moments from the comic series The Walking Dead comic series has been around since 2003 and it’s currently on issue 164! In that time there have been numerous iconic scenes, like the time SPOILERSPOILERSPOILER met up with SPOILERSPOILERSPOILER and killed SPOILERSPOILERSPOILER or that amazing scene when SPOILERSPOILERSPOILER cut off SPOILERSPOILERSPOILER… ouch! Although you’re free to recreate these moments yourself, we’re also releasing several expansions that give you the chance to actually live these stories and become a Survivor. We’ve already released Days Gone Bye, which details how Rick Grimes manages to meet back up with his family, and Prelude to Woodbury, which gives you the first glimpses of Brian Blake’s transformation into The Governor. However, these are only just the beginning and later this year you’ll be able [...]
