Two Hour Wargames Zombie outing.......

I stumbled upon a blog entry from Paul which was stuck in draft and thought it was worth posting, it made me hanker for another large Zombie outing..... or is it that I have started the holiday reading already....?

By pooling our 'modern' type terrain we are able to put together a decent looking town centre, the buildings are from a number of sources including Snapdragon, Forgeworld and Plasticville as well as a good selection of scratch builds. Add in some diecast cars and other small bits and pieces for colour.

The zombies are from a number of sources and in all we can probably call on about 200 between us. We have played "All Things Zombies" previously but tonight we wanted a simpler faster game as we had 6 players so we used Chain Reaction with added zombie rules from ATZ. (Chain Reaction 3 is a free download from here.)

Here's a couple of Zed's looking for lunch.

The Hazmat team check vehicles for spares.

The 'family' face off against a zombie, their mix of clubs and bats killed more zombies than anyone else, more importantly they did it quietly!

Geezers check out some "motors", probably looking for expired tax disks.

Some pretty nasty zombies took a fancy to the Biker gang and spend much of the game following them around.

Now the zombies had organised a flash mob recreation of Thriller!

Mrs Grady Old Lady attack the Hazmat team as they attempt to break in to a Renault 5.

From above we see Zombies have got in to the supermarket whilst others have attacked the Bikers.

The Byker gang have taken a casualty, probably PJ or maybe Duncan, another has been knocked to the ground.

With the realisation that supplies were limited (we were collecting petrol, spark plugs, a fanbelt and battery i  order to get a car started), conflict became inevitable. The Hazmat team and Gangstas traded shots attracting the zombies, two fell dead from the Gangsta's surprisingly accurate fire.

The Gangstas found themselves being mobbed by Zeds, but soon made a quick getaway.

The Zeds pour in the direction of gunfire.

The grisly end of the Hazmat team .......

Chris managed to collect all the supplies and was declared the winner, the rest of us went off looking for more modern miniatures armed with clubs, bats, swords and axes. It is too easy to use guns to fight the Zeds but that only ends up attracting them, if only Stu would have let me have the flame thrower.

  1. Looks like a great game! Really like all the Z's you all collected. Thanks for sharing.

    1. It always makes for a great club night game with every player taking on a separate mission.

  2. Great looking game, really inspirational.
