A lone light is on over the table. The players are getting their drinks, snacks, and dice ready as the GM rifles through her notes once more. Last week's map has been rolled out. Michael grabs his phone to look at the picture he took and the end of the last session so you can all get your miniatures in the right spot. Except this time is different. This time you have a new miniature, one that actually represents your character's race. As your compatriots drag out their pre-colored, plastic humans and elves you smile. Pulling out the half-orc you've been using to represent your Netherstorm character, you flick it across the room. In the same fluid motion, you set your new miniature down on the table. A four-armed, metal monster. He has been cast. You have painted him. And now, he is ready for blood. The room goes silent with awe.
When we created Netherstorm, we wanted to really show people who we are and how we game. Part of that was coming up with our own, non-standard player races. It was a lot of fun creating, and later playing, characters that weren't the same old elf, dwarf, or half-whatever, however there was a downside. No minis! Maybe you're the GM who likes a good, meticulously drawn map. Maybe you're a player who enjoys finding the perfect likeness of their character, painting it exactly so, and showing it off on the hexagonal battlefield. The bottom line is, miniatures are awesome. But when you have a unique race, miniatures that encapsulate your character are thin on the ground. Finally, we are making our own minis for use with Netherstorm, as well as other systems. We are starting with our four-armed warrior race, the Kentrona. These desert-born brutes boast many great traits, whether as an impressive PC, an NPC, or a monster for the second greatest role-playing game and other
and from the comments by the creator:
"I can tell you that prompting from others prompted us to commission art for a second miniature, a female Kentrona soldier. We should have it early next week.
I will update as changes are made, and rest assured, we will be making some changes very soon. (Including removing all additional shipping charges.)
In the meantime, Netherstorm is available on Drive-thru RPG."
Fateslayer has been an idea that has been constantly evolving, it has gone through countless names, and changes to its themes and ideas. Finally, I can say the world has started to come together and has started to come alive. It's set in a dark fantasy with a large theme of as you would guess, fate and it's constant struggle to break free from it. Each figure holds a story piece that weaves the world around each other and brings life to the world of Fateslayer. Many of the stories hold secrets and reveals what's to come in the Fateslayer universe. I hope you'll enjoy each of these crafted stories and the many characters that reside inside of it.
I wont post any of the pics. Some of them are not safe for work.
Anyone who may have missed out on the MapForge Kickstarter campaign...You can now get in on the MapForge Indiegogo campaign.
There are two new videos to check out, even if you already backed the Kickstarter. And the MapForge Beta is available for download, so you can take the software for a spin.
Check the comments on this project for sneak peeks, Darklands lore, hints, tactics, painting advice and general insanity! The community that builds during these Kickstarter projects is amazing, and even if you just read the comments, you'll gain so much more from Darklands: Starter Hosts!
Backing Darklands: Starter Hosts II is a great opportunity to get into the dark fantasy world of Darklands for the first time, to expand your existing Darklands collection or maybe just to grab some fantastic miniatures to paint.
Eoric's Pack, Werwulf Unit We'll give you the option to purchase everything in resin, too, if you're more of a painter than a gamer!
Darklands is a tabletop skirmish wargame in which YOU command the hosts of man and beast that your ancestors once did for glory, power or simple survival.
You can play Darklands with all of our amazing miniatures, including our incredible monsters and anything produced by this project, in a wargame designed specifically for them in a setting that you already know a lot about... for the lands of darkness, the "dark lands" as we call them, are in fact the north and west of Europe and of course the sunken lands still remembered, yet no longer seen, from ancient times.
Intrigued? Download the Darklands: First Edition Quick Play Guide to learn how to play very quickly, and have a good look at the Lands of Darkness Kindred Guide to give you an insight into the lore behind the game.
Additionally, have a look at the bottom of this project's page for more information on Darklands the wargame!
New to Darklands? Choose your infantry host, and get the "STARTER BUNDLE" reward!
It's the easiest way to get playing!
To keep things as simple as possible, this project’s rewards are based around the concept of a Starter Host. All Starter Hosts contain a small Darklands host of around 499 gold - so Encounter Host size - where possible, and you can add the Darklands: First Edition rule book, order tokens and D10 dice to your pledge to ensure you have everything you need to get started!
As well as the hosts listed in the stretch goals, you can purchase any of the Infantry Starter Hosts in metal or resin from the graphic below - either as single purchases or as part of the "FIVE INFANTRY HOSTS" reward.
Most of these Infantry Starter Hosts are already released to the public; new ones will be released to the public in similar format either later on this year or early next.
Each Infantry Starter Host almost always contains:
1x Commander 1x Infantry Unit of 10x miniatures, including champion, banner bearer and herald where appropriate 1x Monstrous Infantry Unit of 5x warriors (50mm) or 3x warriors (60mm) Note that 60mm monstrous infantry units (such as the Srónax) can only be produced in resin regardless of whether your purchase is for a metal host or a resin host.
Here's the Infantry Starter Hosts you can fund for this project!
The Anglecynn Werwulf Infantry Starter Host includes digital resculpts of Hrōr (in progress), Eoric's Pack (complete) and Wulfric's Pack (forthcoming) by Bob Płociennik. Both Hrōr and Eoric's Pack will come with four weapon combinations - sword and claw, sword and shield, spear and claw and spear and shield. Wulfric's Pack will come with three weapon options - claws, sword and claw and great claws.
Support Starter Hosts are exactly the same as Infantry Hosts in terms of costs, and always contain:
1x Support Commander 1x Support Unit of 10x miniatures, including champion 1x Monstrous Support Unit of 3x warriors, including champion Note that 60mm or 80mm monstrous infantry units (such as the Bholg of Acaill) can only be produced in resin regardless of whether your purchase is for a metal host or a resin host.
Some of these Support Starter Hosts are already released to the public; new ones will be released to the public in similar format either later on this year or early next.
Here's the Infantry Starter Hosts you can fund for this project!
The Anglecynn Werwulf Hunter Support Starter Host includes digital resculpts of Hrōr with a bow, called Hunter Hrōr (in progress), two units of Sigewulf's Pack and a unit of Eoric's Packby Bob Płociennik. Eoric's Pack will come with four weapon combinations - sword and claw, sword and shield, spear and claw and spear and shield.
There's also a deal for those who want more than one host, in the shape of the FIVE INFANTRY HOSTS bundle (which can be either infantry hosts or support hosts). Save loads of money on your infantry and support hosts if you grab this!
There's a deal for the infantry and support units within those hosts, too - the FIVE INFANTRY UNITS bundle!
