THE WALKING DEAD
Despite a real-life pandemic, we still managed to release a new wave for The Walking Dead in 2020. The Whisperers were exceptionally well received and offered a totally new way to play both Call to Arms and All Out War.
The Walking Dead RC also put together the fantastic No One Stands Alone expansion. This FREE download lets you pit your wits against a virtual opponent, thanks to some simple AI rules. You can download that here.
So, what about 2021 then? Well, we were hoping to be able to show you some new miniatures but, unfortunately, they’re not quite ready. However, we can tell you that the next planned wave for The Walking Dead will be The Kingdom.
This will be quite a different faction for Call to Arms and All Out War because a lot of the survivors are mounted on horseback. So, you can expect plenty of special rules and new ways to play.
There will be four named Kingdom characters, including Richard, Benjamin, Taylor and Gus, plus a couple of unnamed Kingdom guards to bulk out your faction.
We’re also planning some new scenarios too, including one starring everyone’s favourite Walker-eating tiger, Shiva! As you can see, there’s plenty to get excited about for The Walking Dead in 2021 and there’s always the chance we might have some surprises up our sleeve too!
Finally, a quick note about re-stocks. 2020 has proved a challenging year to keep all the waves in stock but we’re hoping to have all waves, including the Whisperers, back in stock shortly. Keep an eye on social media and the newsletter to find out when.
