Pit a small army (well if 4 can be seen as an army) of Laurie Strodes against Michael Myers on the streets of Haddonfield, complete with meticulously pruned shrubbery and a cop car out front with lights blazing red against rows of white fence.

The Walking Dead: All Out War Miniatures Game
We cover more than our fair share of toys here at Idle Hands, so it was inevitable that we would zero in on the newest collectibles at Image Comics while scouring the floor at New York Comic Con 2016!

While making whimpering sounds up against Lying Cat's Plexiglas enclosure, something caught my eye at the far end of the booth and I ran over to investigate. Greeting me was a very pleasant man and a tabletop miniatures game called The Walking Dead: All Out WAR!!! Let's check out what was inside...
