UK Zombie Invasion

A parcel from Mantic Games arrived in the mail today with a Weird WWII German Zombies kit they created with Warlord Games. The parcel arrived in four days. People in the UK might complain about Royal Mail service but they can sure get parcels to Canada darned quick.

I’ve only had a quick look at the figures but both sets look quite good. Lots of detail on the Zombies and the Germans but it is immediately apparent that creating WWII zombies from the kits it going to be some work. I wasn’t going to pick these up as I wasn’t too interested in them until I saw some of the samples on the Mantic Games blog.

Oddly I only picked up a single set, not sure where my brain was, but I think these will make a great addition to the rank and file WWII zombie minis that I already have.

Zombies galore

Canada Post dropped off an order from West Wind Productions and I am now the proud owner of an additional 44 WWII Zombies :-) I picked up a German and Soviet Zombie horde (20 minis each) and four of the Soviet Zombie Bombs. I already have over 20 WWII German Zombies and I have plans that will require a huge number of them :-)

Thankfully they come with 30mm round-lipped bases so I can start assembling them ASAP. I think I’ll paint the Soviets first and then do the Germans as I already have German Zombies done and ready to game with.

AE-WWII Storming Carentan campaign game two

Today was the second game in the four game AE-WWII Storming Carentan campaign game. The first game saw the US take control of the bridge over the Madeleine River and this game required them to secure a bunker that was guarding the road into the city. The US forces were not able to control the bunker and were routed from the field. Sadly I forgot my camera so there aren’t any photos of the game.

AE-WWI demo game

So this Saturday (January 7th) was the first game of the four game AE-WWII campaign that I am using to demo the game at one of the local game stores, Strategies Games and Hobbies, here in Vancouver.

Due to some poor scheduling on my part the game wasn’t that well attended. This Saturday was also the monthly WCP Game Day as well as the first, and mandatory, day of the Blood Bowl Thunderbowl tournament.

I’ll be doing the next game on a Sunday :-)
