Suffolk, where the Aliens roam.

Mine arrived this morning out of tyhe blue, beat the tracking info it seems.

Nice, didn't realize it would be that much, so more to paint, but its looking a mighty fine set now combined with season one.

I may be losing it, but is there a second wave due at some point?
I seem to remember i should have had a Burt Reynolds pack, and some extras based of Adrian Smiths art if i recall.

You're not losing it. There will be a second wave of survivors. The Mustache pack, Not Shaun of the Dead guys, Jack Nicholson, etc etc.

Plus the artist packs.

I'm not sure when they will be coming though.

Did you get the dogs and bonus KS zombies with your shipment? I'm assuming by now the UK ones are shipping as combined wave 1 & 1.5.

Yeah, got the Zombie and companion dogs and a five pack of extra characters that included Dakota, oh and four extra single character packs.

After a flick through, really like the Prison pack, and the Mall, going to be fun having all those boards. Oh and the variation of zombie sculpts compared to season one is nice to see up close.

Looking forward to the idea of painting them, but it sadly won't be till the start of the new year, my painting bench is full till then.

They were primed with Army Painter's necrotic flesh spray and the spikes and buboes done with a very, very old pot of GW bilious green.

You wash them with anything? And here are my Fatties from Season 1. I see we both had the same idea for washing the bases!

On the zeds I cheat and use AP dark tone quick shade. They need a tough coating as they get some heavy handling. I do a proper paintjob on the survivors.

Contact. Zombies at eleven o'clock (UK time).

Had mine sent to work, and if I'd opened all the boxes, I'd have been up to my neck in brain-dead groaners within the hour. As it is, I suppose I'll have to make do with my co-workers until I can get home!

Still, it was a BIG box. PO, TCM, 4 extra TCM tiles, PO pack 'A', Zombie Dogz, dog companions, Rick, Lea, and Dakota. 6KG. And I didn't get the tracking info until last night!

Still looking forward to the 2 different artist packs, Moustache pack, and the other 3 survivors I ordered.

O feth it, the idiots sent my package -- from the US. Meaning I will be in a tiff with them over the inevitable customs charges pretty soon; I'm pretty sure misrepresenting shipping origin and therefore saddling me with substantial customs fees is something mastercard sufficiently dislikes to issue a chargeback in that amount - will see if it works.

Better hope you are in when they arrive then. For my wave 1 stuff UPS sent me a delivery confirmation email stating delivery location as "porch" which might have been ok if (a) I wasn't on holiday in Switzerland at the time, (b) it didn't rain solidly for the next 3 days and (c) porch didn't translate as "we left it on the pavement by the bins". It's a good job the zombicide boxes themselves are shrink-wrapped.

Just played my first game of Zombicide (with a friend's set, including the new stuff) last night. It was really fun! No wonder people were so happy with this, but unhappy with Sedition Wars, where the game isn't very playable / fun (which is pretty much the point of a board game).

Can't wait to try it again . I went out in a blaze of glory with the chainsaw, claiming a few objectives for our team along the way

When I was demoing it at Adepticon I had some 10 year old sociopath toss a Molotov into a square where two other survivors were with only 2 zombies.

It was a bit funny, but man...the kid was gleeful about it.

Came home from work yesterday to find a huge box o zeds waiting.

I too had forgotten quite how much stuff was coming, I will literally have to move a load of old stuff to the loft to make room for it all as i have filled up the whole office with wargames again. The mrs is not best pleased at the moment!

Has anyone tried out the dogs in a normal game yet?

I picked mine up from the post office today, the box it came in was absolutely fething massive...

Does anyone know what happened to the Berserker Abomination shown in the bottom right of this picture? both of the Berserker Abominations i received were of the model with his right hand as a claw, while the one in the picture has his right hand balled up into a fist and his body is twisted at more of an angle.

The pics posted on page 45 also have the normal clawed berserker abomination instead of the one pictured.

I got all my stuff last week, and managed to play an epic game using everything at the weekend. During the game I discovered that Zombie Elsa (Cat Burglar) is quite game breaking in Ultrared mode. She is able to get the Slippery and Rotten skills at the same time, which means she can just move around the map with impunity, snatching objectives. Zombies don't even look at her. I guess it fits her character, but it turns some of the harder objective missions into easy wins, so you might want to limit her in campaigns.

The big game was fun, but it took a lot of hours to play out, and left me feeling that maybe less is more when it comes to Zombies and Equipment. Having so many equipment cards made it difficult to find important things like Gasoline when you needed it. Then using all the Zombie trays meant that stupid amounts of Zombies (150+) could pile up behind security gates while you searched. Also cool equipment like the Assault Rifle and Concrete Saw never appeared until much later in the game. By that time everyone was already styling Ultrared weapons, so they ended up straight in the discard pile.

I think next time I play I will limit the Zombies to 2 trays, like Toxic + Normal, or Berserk + Dogs. I will also try to cut a lot of fat from the equipment deck, like no more than 2 of each weapon type (maybe just 1 for weapons that aren't dual wield). And I'll probably remove the Kukri from the deck completely, as it's too similar to the starter weapons and things like the Wakizachi to be interesting.

The Ultrared weapons were really fun, but playing with all six seemed a bit OTT. Next time I think I'll just play with 1 random Ultrared weapon in the deck, to keep it special. Or else make it the reward for taking down an objective/abomination instead of the usual +5exp.

Hopefully that will fix some of the issues we had. But otherwise might need to house rule a few things, such as the number of zombies that can fit in one zone. I was thinking it might also be a good idea to add in a rule for an item specific search, for times when the game can't advance until a certain item is found (usually the Gasoline). The way it works in you can search X number of cards (maybe 5 or 10 or 2D6) for a specific named item. If you find the item you can keep it, but any other items you find must be discarded. Any Aaahh! cards get played as normal, or could be switched for a Zombie card to make it more challenging.

So, having checked my stuff, I got 3 different language versions of the rules - including English - with both my Zombie dogz and the Companion dogs. I also have realised that I have a mountain of orange jumpsuits to paint, or should I go for pink?

I have also thought about going for a more subtle difference between my normal, toxic, and beserker zombies. I like the way that they have been painted both here and elsewhere, but it is possibly that that has made me want to do something different. Hopefully I'll have some time to work on a fatty of each type over the weekend and post the results here early next week.

Hope everyone else gets anything that's missing with minimal fuss, and we don't have to wait too long for the rest of the stuff.

I started with more subtle differences between the types but found that it was just easier to play when it was very, very obvious which was which so repainted the test ones in stronger colours. You may find the same thing once there are 50+ random zombies piled into one square so I'd suggest if you are going subtle on the zeds you do something with the bases to make them more easily discernable in a crowd.
