Crowdfunding Spotlight: Zed or Alive: Zombie skirmish ruleset by Rust Devil Games Kickstarter

19 Mar

As you know, I’m into zombie wargames, so this caught my eye, its called Zed or alive from Dust devil games and they currently have a kickstarter campaign to fund its creation. Yes, I know, there are quite a few zombie skirmish rulesets coming onto the market at the moment, but there’s always room for more!

They’ve already surpassed their $3000 goal, so this is pretty much a dead cert, and since its based on the Savage world system, it’s already got a good pedigree and existing fan base. I like the slick look to it, and I wouldn’t mind getting my hands on a copy, even if it’s just to read! A lot of you might add that the title bears more than a passing coincidence to a certain X-box game series that is one of my favourites (L4D) but maybe thats why I’m attracted to it in the first place!

The good thing is that you can use whatever figures you like for the game (human survivors and zombies of course) and can be used for 28mm and even 15mm (hooray!!) Loads of miniature companies have allowed photos of their great figures inside, which also lends to the finished look of the book, so its no surprise many have already jumped aboard.

If you want to take a closer look and maybe get involved as a backer in the campaign, click the link below and check it out!

The Walking Dead: Season 4: Episode 14; The Grove

18 Mar

s4

So episode 14 is upon us, not long I fear until the season finale, I’m hoping that this end of season 4 finishes with a little more of a flourish than these past few episodes, but I aint given up on the series just yet! I don’t want to give you any spoilers of this one, but all I can say is, this is probably the best one in this half of the season. It’s very sad, so the sensitive of you might need your hankies at the ready!

links below are for The Walking Dead, season 4, episode 14: The Grove, and the aftershow Talking Dead, put your pop up blockers on before you click to be safe (not from zombies, just pop-ups!) and enjoy the weekly slice of zomer related madness!

Crowdfunding Spotlight: 28mm Zombie & Survivor miniatures by Atomico on Kickstarter

15 Mar

Now, these 28mm figures I think are delightfully old school, and I must admit they exhibit a sort of naive quality that I do actually like! Its a new KS project by Atomico, a new name that I’ve not heard of before.

OK, so they’re kind of a bit chunky, but I think they have bags of character and potential. In a sea of 28mm zombie stuff, I wouldn’t mind adding these to my miniature collection. I might be in on this one, as I really feel the need to start my own zombie horde for a bit of skirmish gaming. I know there are going to be a lot of detractors going on about realism, and how such and such range is better, but hey, everyone has to start somewhere, and to be honest, I’ve seen far worse available out there.

Besides, I always like to promote the smaller projects rather than big well organised companies that peddle their wares on the various crowdfunding sites, so I do wish Atomico the very best of luck in their campaign!

Go and take a look and make your own mind up about them by clicking below!

The Walking Dead: Season 4: Episode 11; Claimed.

24 Feb

While I get a brief break in my busy schedule, here I am with this weeks dose of zombie survival fun, The Walking Dead. I’ll not tell you anything if you haven’t seen it already, there will be no spoilers from me about this weeks instalment.

I’ll try and get online to get my posts back to normal, but I’m finding that I need most of any spare time I’ve got at the moment to devote to stuff I have on, so it’s still busy, busy, busy…

http://www.tubeplus.me/player/2136257/The_Walking_Dead/season_4/episode_11/Claimed/

As usual, I’ll reiterate my warning, before you visit the link above, put on your pop up blocking software/extensions to avoid the myriad of old school pop ups from the site. Enjoy!
