Hello Walking Dead fans! Whether you love All Out War or
Call to Arms, this week we’ve got a bumper selection of blogs and content that
will get your pulses racing – ahead of the latest wave of miniatures going live
for pre-order on the Mantic website this Friday.
But first, let’s look back at the Walking Dead journey to
see how we got to where we are. All Out War launched way back in November 2016 –
so it’s fantastic to see it still going strong into its fourth year. Initially
we told the story of Rick waking up in the hospital and trying to reunite with his
From there we went on to tell the story of the Atlanta Camp
and the Greene Family, before meeting iconic antagonists, such as The Governor,
Negan and The Hunters. With each wave we added more survivors and more
equipment, so you could keep customising your gang with upgraded weapons and
items, to help them survive against the Walkers.
Last year we also launched Call to Arms. This was an
opportunity to scale up games of All Out War with more Survivors, more Walkers
and more deadly equipment. Whereas All Out War is more of a narrative-driven game,
Call to Arms is all about PvP, as rival gangs fight over the remnants of a
From now on, whenever we release a new wave of The Walking
Dead, each product will come with cards and equipment for All Out War and Call
to Arms – making it easier than ever to play your favourite version of the game.
Or get into both, of course!
This means that our latest wave will be the first to adopt
this new system and inside each booster you’ll get cards for both systems. But
hang on, we haven’t told you exactly what’s in this new wave. Well, let’s
correct that straight away. The new wave includes:
As you can see, we’ve brought back the Walkers for some of
the boosters as there were lots of you that missed these from Wave Five, featuring
the Hunters. We’ve also got a new show exclusive: King Ezekiel and some cool
objective markers. All of these new models will be made in resin, so the detail
is absolutely top notch!
Over the course of this week, we’ve been working with T&G Productions to reveal the characters and go into a bit more depth about each booster. They’ll be unveiling new videos at the end of this week, ahead of a new battle report next week. Make sure you subscribe to their channel so you don’t miss a single video.
Now, we know that some of you were hoping to pick up the new
wave of Walking Dead releases at Adepticon next week. However, with the cancellation
of the show that will no longer be possible
But wait because we’ve got some good news! This Friday when
the pre-orders go on the website, we’ll have a special Adepticon Bundle, which
features all the new wave, plus the show exclusive King Ezekiel. This bundle
will be sent out next week (before the release date of April 6th), so
could even arrive around the time that Adepticon would have been taking place.
Now, just to set expectations accordingly, this bundle will be limited to around
20 copies, as that’s how much we have been able to produce in advance and were
planning on taking to Adepticon.
But fret not, Walking Dead fans! Another bundle will be
going up at the same time that features all of the new wave and we’ll be putting
show exclusive King Ezekiel for pre-order too. These will be shipped from April
6th, which is when you’ll be able to buy the new produces in stores.
So, that’s it for today’s introductory blog. Tomorrow we’ll
be looking in a bit more detail at some of the equipment in this new wave.
