Yeah, I really wanted the Galactus pledge, but with VAT and shipping I really can't justify that price tag. Heck, I'm struggling to justify the mid tier pledge too. We'll see how it goes over the next few weeks...

Hmm £200+ seems quite steep for the 2 base plus postage - will see how it evolves but still tempted.

Stretch goals are daily unlocks rather than amount based and announced at 12pm and 4pm est.

Makes it a long wait for the first goals which is likely to cause some grumbling (unless they do an extra early one).

Edit: can’t do time zones properly. First bonus announced in 15 minutes.

They are doing a hybrid of 2 Daily Bugles and money based stretch goals.

First 6 announced alt versions of base game Zombies/Heroes

Hero Ironman
Hero Wasp
Hero Sabretooth
Zombie Ms. Marvel
Zombie Rogue
Zombie Wolverine

So that's at least another 3 Daily Bugle announcements (probably more) to cover all of the heroes/zombies from the two boxes; though some apparently aren't licensed in one version or another. Curious as to who won't get their counterpart...

I wonder if Hero mode will get rules for heroes becoming zombies when they die as one of the unlocks after all of the zombie versions are revealed?

I guess with China's economic, lockdown, internal supply chain, energy problems, etc. etc. situation, there's not going to be inexpensive plastic for awhile. Shipping's also starts at $50, no doubt reflecting increased shipping prices. I guess better to have the sticker shock and deliver, than underfund, like many KS from last year ran into with the 5x increase in shipping costs. CMON's located in Singapore and has been doing KS plastic for years, so I'd guess they know what they should be doing better than other KS boardgames. IP's often have agreements that require the licensor to do something specific with the IP within a certain timeframe. Understandable, but guess who already has a bedroom closet and two bookshelves in the dining room of unpainted plastic...

Exclusive rewards that will be given out to all backers. Each day of the campaign, with one Morning Edition coming out at 12PM and one Evening Edition coming out at 4PM, the Daily Bugle will reveal on its headline a new reward. You got that right, 2 new exclusive rewards will be added every single day, come rain or shine!

But that’s not all! We will still have occasional exclusive Stretch Goals unlocked when the campaign reaches certain funding milestones. There are lots of surprises ahead of us!


But today is a special day! And in celebration of the amazing launch of the campaign, the Daily Bugle’s Evening Edition is reporting the sighting of not 1, not 2, but a whopping 6 exclusive rewards being added to all pledges!

These are counterparts to characters from the Marvel Zombies core boxes. Meaning if the core box included a Zombie Hero version of the character, the exclusive reward brings a Super Hero version of that same character, or vice-versa!


Anyway, saw these images on the FB page. I'm not necessarily a fan of Marvel Zombies or Zombicide, so it's retail and eBay HeroClix lots for me. Looking forward to Zombicide: Undead or Alive!

i guess if marvel has already made a zombie hero the artist/designer of that character may have some rights (or if they've licenced it for a cross over with another brand), similarly some heroes may be (partially owned) by their creator or marvel may already have issues an licence for use in another board game and either CMON couldn't get a licence to use them or doing so is more hassle than they'd be prepared to put in

I understand the issues that have caused it, but the price is a bit too high for me I think, regardless of how much free stuff they add. I can't see much point in the lower cost version as it seems like only half the game, but with the added VAT and two wave shipping, you're looking at an awful lot of money for board game plastic.

The lack of clear stretch goals is a bit of a bummer as well, it was always fun thing to do at work to check how the total was coming along and counting down towards them, hopefully they add them once they have a better handle on what sort of scale the interest is.

HOpefully it goes mental and tries to tempt me back in, but at the moment it's looking a bit too much of a commitment

I would be genuinely surprised if "rights" issues meant they could make a zombie model or a hero model for any character, but not both.

The movie rights are all screwed up for understandable reasons, but the board game rights? That only applies/only doesn't apply to zombie versions? Skeptical.

I thought that was odd - but see what happens and who we do and don't get.

Not that I recall but don’t believe Ms Marvel was either and she had a zombie version (the original marvel zombie comics were before her first appearance and don’t recall her appearing as one in the more recent zombie appearances).

$180 for Galactus? GTFO with that nonsense. Your unpainted PVC toy shouldnt be exceeding a Sideshow Collectible pricetag.

Rest of the sculpts look nice, but after getting used to painting larger figures in protocol I don't see myself investing much time in dinky 28mm's anymore.

As someone who is halfway through painting Massive Darkness, with MD2 arriving probably within a month, and Black Plague, Green Horde and 2nd Edition sat unpainted, I can see your point... The rank and file aren't that much fun to paint tbh, although this would at least have a fair bit more variety than the batch painting 30 tiny detailed goblins in a big batch that I'm currently doing

Oh yeah, good point. Abigail Brand as well. That girl can certainly hold her own in a fight, far more than JJJ or Pepper ever could.

I really want this, I really do - having Rogue as a character is awsome - but... I can't afford it. And I'd rather save up the money for cool gak later in the year.

They have their Stretch Goals planned out in advance they already know exactly what's going in other than the odd thing added due to backer requests so they just adjust the SG gaps accordingly. It'll settle down in a day or 2 and then go up again when they add more paid add ons.

It looks nice but...the price...wow!

And this is *before* the inevitable paid add-ons for additional gameplay sets.

This one kinda started out as a sad, but easy pass for me, and it will probably end up as a hard pass once the finally butcher's bill is known!

Agreed alot of the bystanders are pretty effective in combat -- they do get a fighting symbol so i guess they can do something but I am with everyone at the moment - awful lot of money. Still there is alot that I would love to have. Not pledged yet but still watching.

Surprised no Bystander zombies or hero versions of them - maybe get later.

They are sticking with $500k SG gaps for now

Zombie Bucky at $4m



His arm is on Captain America’s base. The inclusion of the bike on the base makes me hopeful that a bike mounted Ghost Rider might appear.

Living hulk as first daily model.

In the comments CMON have confirmed one of the models with rights issues is Black Panther. Marvel are not allowing a zombie version out of respect to Chadwick Boseman.

Probably not a a popular opinion, but I really dislike how much crap is on the bases. I don't mind monopose models whether PVC or HIPS, but I really dislike these crazy, overdone rubble bases where the poses are integral to the basing. Crisis Protocol has the same problem, but you're painting 12 models. Here you're painting 2 versions of each hero and a hundred+ civilians/NPCs/generic zombies. Already daunting enough, the crazy bases make each one almost twice the work

I hate basing, as I am hugely lazy, so don't normally mind a decent built in base. But that bike is a bit on the large and in the way side for me, it would be a hassle to paint and make it harder to paint the characters back, what with it being one piece resin. It's a fine line though as a nice base does make a mini look a lot nicer when painted, but if too much is going on it takes away from the main thing. For me, that particular one is on the wrong side of that line. Tbh, I'm usually happy with a very basic texture effect on the base, like the cracked floor tiles from Dungeon Saga. Nothing fancy, but just takes the edge off that plain flat basis leave

Looking at some of the others, most are alright, as rubble is fine. Just slap grey all over it, may be a rough wash and then drybrush lighter grey, jobs a good un. But some have a bit more detail than I'd ideally prefer. Like you, I don't really want to be spending significant painting time picking out details on a base on board game minis
