Unboxing: The Walking Dead: All Out War Miniature Game Kickstarter Edition

The battle for survival from the smash hit The Walking Dead series comes to the tabletop. Mantic Games and Skybound have teamed up for this licensed tabletop miniature game featuring some of the most well-known characters from the comic series.

I crack open this Kickstarter edition of The Walking Dead: All Out War to show off what you get inside.

Stay tuned for some game play coming soon!

The Walking Dead: All Out War Miniature Game Launches, Lots Unlocked

The Walking Dead All Out War Miniatures GameMantic Games have launched their latest miniature game The Walking Dead: All Out War based on Skybound‘s popular comic (and television show) The Walking Dead on Kickstarter. The miniature game’s “early bird” pledge status has already sold out, but you can get the game for $125 plus shipping ($15 for the United States).

For that amount you get:

So far the “Something to Fear” pledge level includes:

  • The complete The Walking Dead: All Out War miniatures game starter set
  • Atlanta Camp Expansion
  • Dice bag and a second set of game dice with custom faces
  • Kickstarter Exclusive Sheriff’s Badge Initiative Counter
  • Collector’s Edition Box that will hold the entire Something to Fear pledge.

In addition to the above, you now also get:

  • 10 3D Loot Markers in plastic
  • Shane Booster Miniature and Shane Character Card
  • Reggie Booster Miniature and Reggie Character Card
  • 1 Atlanta Camp Walker and 3 Equipment Cards
  • Lori Booster Miniature and Lori Character Card

The main game is $50 and boosters are $20 (we don’t know how much expansions such as Atlanta costs). Assuming all add-ons for the game are $20 that’s $150 or so worth of product. There are surely more to be unlocked down the road making it an even better deal.

There’s new characters revealed too and more teased. Check all the new figures below.

All Out War Comes to Road to Survival!

Skybound has announced that Update 2.2 has arrived for the video game The Walking Dead: Road to Survival. With the highly anticipated All Out War looming on the horizon, factions will be pit against factions in the battle for supremacy and control. It’s a test of skill, guts, glory, and ambition, that only the strong can survive.

Alongside this new faction battle system, there are new specialist skills ready to be released that will help shake up the way battles unfold in new and exciting ways.

Download the new update and hop in the game now to check out all the new content, and make sure to be ready for War, because it looks as though a certain foul-mouthed mega villain could be on the way…

The idea is to have all of the first wave of releases, the game, the minis, freebies, and upgrades as long as stretch goals have are reached. This will help simplify the shipping and prevent major issues with missing items.

If the campaign foes well, they have also said that at that point they will also release 2 or 3 simple expansions that folks who pledge will be able to add on their pledge. These expansion will introduce more heroes, bad guys, variant plays, and settings such as the Prison.

The company has also said these expansions will ship later so that they don’t interfere with the first wave of releases.

The company has also let it be known the base fame will cost $50 and boosters will be $20.
