The Walking Dead Kickstarter Exclusives Available With Mantic Points

So, the thing with Kickstarter exclusives is that you can’t sell them after the Kickstarter campaign, but you can give them away as promotional materials. I’ve learned this over the years, seeing how they’re handled. It’s a good way to still get those items, though it can sometimes mean jumping through hoops. Well, Mantic has made the hoop rather easy to jump through to get some of the Kickstarter items for The Walking Dead: All Out War. You can get them by using your Mantic points.

Midweek Snippets

Is this week going by slowly for everyone else, too, or is it just me? I don’t know if it’s because I’m working from home as the new office continues to be set up, or if it’s just that this week is one that’s taking forever. Maybe it’s that I don’t currently have water in the apartment (the county is coming out today to figure out what’s up with that). Whatever it might be, if I’m going to make it through the rest of the week, I need to power up with some bite-size gaming stories.

Today we have: Mantic Games Announces The Walking Dead: All Out War Premium Collector’s Edition Diorama, Khurasan releases late 16th century landsknechts, Oddzial Osmy’s 3mm February Releases Arrive at PicoArmor, MegaMinis Running Robots Kickstarter, Journey To Ragnarok Coming To Kickstarter Soon, Final Day for Savage Worlds: Zombie Squad On Kickstarter, New Legionary Heavy Weapon Platform: Quad Heavy Thunder Gun Available From Kromlech, and Elder Dice Kickstarter Happening Now.

Mantic Games Selling Limited Numbers of Kickstarter Edition of The Walking Dead: All Out War

Sometimes you just don’t have the ability to get in on a Kickstarter campaign while it’s running.

Woodbury Expansion Add-On Added To The Walking Dead Kickstarter

Tanks.
“You’re welcome.”
No, tanks!
“I said you’re welcome!”
Look! Tanks!
“Ooooh… tanks… Holy Crap! Tanks!”
You know, you’d think that having a tank during a zombie outbreak wouldn’t be so bad. Well-armored, can travel over all sorts of terrain, and can certainly take out a zombie or two. It’s not so good, however, when one’s facing you down. Well, they don’t have the actual tanks coming for The Walking Dead: All Out War, but but the Governor in charge of it they do have.

Mantic Gives Non-Gamers A Quick Walking Dead Intro

Here on TGN, in one of the first The Walking Dead: All Out War, there was a comment that the person’s wife had not ever been a minis gamer, but now she probably will be once this game comes out. A game such as this, that is based on a property that engages a lot of different people via the comic books and the TV show, will hopefully bring new gamers to the table. But how do you introduce the system to a non-gamer? Mantic has a little ditty you can have them look over.

Mantic to Make The Walking Dead Miniatures Game

Braaaaaaaaaaaaaains!
No, it’s not Halloween, but there’s never a bad time for some undead.
Or, there’s never a good time for some undead, if you have to run from them or be turned into one, I guess.
In this case, though, undead is a good thing, as Mantic has announced that they’re going to be making a miniatures game based on the popular series The Walking Dead.
