EWG - Dead of Winter...Again! Descent & All's Quiet for now on the Martian Front.

Quite a mixed bag of tricks this posting as several things came together this eve.

First up, I ran another game of Dead of Winter at the club last night. I had a buddy & his wife whom have been waiting for an opportunity to give this game a play.

As we had 5 people that wanted to play, I just hosted the game. So going around the table we had Bruce, Brian, Dave, Wes & Emmy.

I opted to run the initial scenario recommended for new players.

Something I find is becoming a very common occurrence. A bitten survivor dying on the first turn while heading to a location.

The game continued & I had hoped to have taken quite a few photos to tell the tale, however this is when my camera's battery decided to also get bitten.

I can say the game ended when a Survivor who returned to the compound was bitten & spread the disease, killing 2 more Helpless Survivors & dropping the Morale to 0. Wes (who was a betrayer) was the sole winner of the game.

Up next we have another Descent figure. This time Corbin. 

Lastly I finished a unit of modified Mk II's which were outfitted with sponson guns & an MG. The original engine however could not handle the extra weight & thus these tanks move a bit slower than normal.

This will be the first of quite a few All's Quiet on the Martian Front elements as I start preparing for the Mayday Games Convention. I do have some more Zombicide miniatures in the painting queue as well.


  1. Sounds like a great night in and every time I see your All quiet on the Martian Front models my wallet winces - may be one day.

    1. Thanks Michael, you should be seeing a lot more of the All's Quiet stuff, albiet just the human forces. My buddy Scott received his Landship, my order has been delayed awaiting the production of the BEF forces.

  2. Great looking models Terry! Love those tanks.
    The guys at our games night (WNI) where talking about the Dead of Winter, a possible purchase, I would love to know a little more about it and your opinion of it.

    1. I would highly recommend the purchase of Dead of Winter Bob. Seems most game stores can't keep it in stock. The replayability is very high. I've played 4 or 5 games now & have barely scratched the surface there is so much going on.
      The crossroad cards add a nice touch & some of them are indeed quite dark. I will post more plays as they occur.

  3. Dead of Winter was a blast. Man, a lot goes on in that game. Thanks for hosting, Terry!

    1. Thanks David. Yes there certainly is. I can see how if the betrayer is careful he can do as well as Wes did for the win. Seems most of the games have ended by the morale track dropping to 0.
