Mantic’s Walking Dead – Unboxing

So this arrived this morning…

The box itself is a thing of beauty – the window packaging allows mantic to show off the snazzy artwork, and the quality of the sculpted models within – These are a pleasant departure from the models I’m used to with the recent Mantic Kickstarters – not the flimsy coloured plastic of Dungeon Saga or Mars Atacks! -these models have a real stability and heft to them, which has allowed for some really detailed work on the sculpts.

The game includes three decks of cards – each scaled at a different size for ease of identification – character cards, event cards and supply & equipment cards. Also included is a threat tracker (with a lovely little spinny arrow…) cardboard cars and barricades, and a slew of templates and tokens.

The Walking Dead!

I was pleasantly surprised to find no duplicate zombies or gang members in the set; each zombie or Scavenger is unique – which I find a really nice  touch.
