    Default It's Here! (Unbox pics and Q/A)

    I'm sure I'm not the first, but the mailman delivered my copy today, so since no one else has posted pics here yet I will.
    FYI - I never got a tacking number, and it came via US Postal Service.

    First, the extras box: (contains Kara, fancy dice, signed flyer, extra cards, bases, and figures)

    The game box:

    One sheet of color counters:

    Game tile:

    All the other game bits: (figures, bases, plastic counters, stock dice)


    These last two were also in separate boxes:
    Opticamo Vanguard:

    Glow in the dark Strain:


    I'd be happy to answer any questions I can as well. Yay!

    Warning - the Grendlrs do not fit well.
    The plastic does hold lots of detail, but does not sand well.

    Got the strain (minus the glow in the dark ones) all built. There's a lot of them.






    And the good guys:


    *edit* apologies if the images are upside-down. Every time I refresh the page, they flip. Photobucket is messing with me.

    Here's a chunk of the Vanguard. 3 Reavers and 9 male vanguard to build still.

    Thanks a lot for these pics, trystan. My box hasn't arrived yet (I'm about as "rest of world" as you can get ) but I'm very much champing at the bit to get started on them. Piccypics are much appreciated

    Thanks for the pics. The figures look like they are holding a lot more detail then zombicide. Are you happy with the clear and glow in the dark ones? I didn't get those two options but kept debating it in my head.
    Also did your kickstarter pledge manager update that it was shipped? I see that you did not get a track number. I still have no activity maybe I should have given the mailman a Christmas gift.

    There is definitely more detail than zombicide. I haven't really looked at the clear and glowy ones, though I imagine they will hold up under scrutiny.

    As for the pledge manager, I'd have to look. Honestly, I forgot about it.

    Finally someone taking pictures, thanks!

    I wonder why you're the first one to do so..., anyway, they look great!

    Show off! lol i guess there is hope that rural post will deliver mine today in central Illinois if you got yours. Another big package was on my porch again yesterday...just to be dissapointed with baby gifts again. It has been just like Christmas when you are all excited and open a gift to find underwear!

    Btw those strain really look like nice models. Thanks for posting Trystan.

    They are nice. And really the minis overall have been easy to assemble and require minimal prep. There are a few male vanguard that look like they were at the end of the mold's run, and the Grendlrs are going to give everyone fits.

    Once I get everything assembled, I'll take a good pic of each of the different minis.

    Nice write up! You definitely take better pictures than me. I saw in a post that you should use an emery board for filling and not the usual tools.

    Still waiting for mine to arrive. I hate you so much right now...

    I got mine about 20 minutes ago. In Richmond Virginia.

    Just a heads up, and I hope this doesn't happen to too many people:
    A couple of my male samaritans were rather poorly cast. It's only two vanguard out of the 20 base troops, but it's there.

    And it's not just ugly flash. The right leg on both of them run out of detail at the foot.

    Thank you very much for the pics.
    It won't speed up my parcel but it's good to see what I will have soon.
    Are the minis the same size than Zombicide's or bigger?
    I like very much the counters, they look very colourful.

    They're about the same size, but definitely more detailed.
