Walker Hordes


I wanted to try something a little different with some of my walkers from Mantic's TWD All Out War - hordes.


While individually based walkers look good, I like the idea of multiple walkers clumped all together and think it adds a lot more visually to the table.


Plus it turns out I have a bunch of figures in the same pose, so I chose those to go onto these horde bases.


I had a go at putting 5 figures on a base and I think I could have done a much better job positioning the figures on this first try. Honestly think I may scrap this base entirely and give it another try, visually it just doesn't look right to my eye.


I tried 4 figures on my second attempt and think I did a better job with the positioning.


For gameplay these will still just count as a single figure and I don't think will cause any issues rules wise with the larger base.


Here's a group photo with some of the individually based walkers in the background - on the new work in progress city Walking Dead table.


I totally forgot to take some WIP's photos of the painting, so here are the walkers getting their pins in their feet lol!


So Ivor gets a pat on the back, he actually completed  9 walkers in only two days! And the first painting he's done in quite some time :) Huzzah!


Until next time, thanks for looking!
Ivor

  1. Cool idea and it does look good. Is this for different games or you using them for the walking dead?

    1. Much appreciated Simon! For now just TWD, but hopefully they can find there way into something else as well.

    1. Agreed, I definitely think it looks a lot better. Filling up an entire cd with zombies is going to look terrifying on the tabletop for sure!

  3. I think that works well Ivor & adds greatly visually as while from a gaming point of view its only one Z looking at them on the set will increase the sense of danger as it will appear that there are a lot more Z's so well done mate :)

    1. Much appreciated Frank! My only regret is not doing really thin bases on all my figures like you do - yours look SO much better on the tabletop than these "normal size" height bases.

  5. Well, that certainly would explain the huge discrepancy in views for that post compared to others.
    I guess that's one you can check off the 'blogger goals', getting Tangoed lol! Though I wish he would have picked something a bit more interesting :)

  6. Wanted to check in to see if you were going to run a game at Historicon this year. If so, I'd love to try to get into your game.

    1. Hey Joe! Unfortunately right now it looks like I won't be attending Historicon this year - fingers crossed that may change last minute, because this will be the first one I've missed in six years. If anything changes I will make a post to the blog - if I don't make it out, all the best to you and your game ☺
