What is the Walking Dead: All Out War Miniatures Game (Part 2!)

Mantic is a hobby company – we create and produce miniature figurines designed to be painted, collected and gamed with. The Walking Dead: All Out War miniatures game is a hobby game.

The Walking Dead: All Out War miniatures are designed to be painted

With this mind each plastic figure is a single-piece sculpt. That means that you do not have to assemble any miniatures, they are ready to use right out of the box.

All of the figures are supplied in grey plastic, which really shows off the detail in each sculpt.

One of the most exciting things about the hobby is the ability to paint your miniatures however you want, and the figures have been painstakingly designed to be easy to paint. Using simple techniques and a steady hand, you too can achieve similar results to our in-house painter, who has produced these beautiful promotional miniatures for painters and hobbyists to aspire too.

The Walking Dead: All Out War miniatures game is expansive and highly collectible

From Rick and Carl, through to Glenn, Maggie and beyond, whether you play the game or not, every figure is highly collectible.

The Walking Dead - Glenn.

In addition to the core game, we will release a wide range of small expansion packs called Game Boosters, as well as larger expansion packs to take you to new locations like Atlanta Camp and the Greene Family Farm.

These expansion and game boosters each feature new survivors, walkers, character cards, supplies, equipment cards and more.

In the game, you own a gang of survivors that suits your own play-style, but you may find you want to tweak it as new equipment or new survivors become available.

For example, you may find that an automatic rifle is more of a match for the Governor than Rick’s hand axe.

As you start playing The Walking Dead: All Out War miniatures game, you will want to collect some of these game boosters and expansions to continue playing through the story, and grow your gang so that it stays competitive.

Of course, whether you play the game or not, it might be that you just want to pick up your favourite character from a later wave (like Michonne) to have on your shelf or to paint. The great thing about this is that it is yours.

  1. Sorry, but Carl’s face is not well done (for Carl’s face!). It is more like an adult. The facial expressions are to pronounced/distinctive for him.

  2. “In addition to the core game, we will release a wide range of small expansion packs called Game Boosters” : Oh, great. Mantic’s gonna suck out the license as much as they can. Well, par for TWD merchandising, I guess…

    • Yea, and if they didn’t people would say “Mantic doesn’t support the game.”

      I personally enjoy having more options than less. Just my opinion.

    • They have booster packs also for Deadzone, nothing unusual, only a name for one kind of expansion. Not the same as Magic the Gathering boosters.

    • It sounds like a similar business model used by FFG with the X-Wing game, i.e. create a reasonably priced, basic core game and then expand it bit by bit with new releases. Personally I quite like this approach, anything that allows me to expand my collection in small, manageable chunks rather than having to make large bulk purchases is a good thing, and each release enables the designers to add new rules, modify existing ones and generally address issues with the meta without having to do a complete re-write.

  3. The miniatures are just “ok”. I get what they are shooting for with the “one piece” so beginners can get into the hobby. It will be the rules that make or break the game for me. I’d like to get into the beta and help with the testing.

    When will the Beta be announced?

    • When Mantic will be done dealing with the massive issues its customer service needs to deal urgently with. “Affordable minis” as a moto does not mean “terrible follow up on the guys funding the business line through Kickstarters”. Meh.

    • Yeah, I noticed they logged on to the Dungeon Siege Kickstarter on Jan 15, but failed to reply to the loads of negative comments. That isn’t a good sign.

  4. Any idea about the pledge price on kickstarter?

    • I’m not sure on the price, but someone (Ronnie?) did say in a Beasts of War interview, that they were thinking of going with just one price for everything. I’d guess $120.00 range but this is not confirmed. That’s probably too low.
