The Ghosts of Midlam Manor

Recommended Posts

 

 

About

It had been some months now, without any disturbance at Midlam Manor, for which the Baron was grateful.  However, on reflection, it was perhaps too quiet.  No sooner had he considered this, then there was a terrible creaking of doors, mysterious footsteps and a most unholy wailing.  The haunting of Midlam Manor had begun.

It had long been known that the Baron’s ancient ancestral home was haunted, but sightings of ghosts had been mercifully rare. But now, from the great hall to the kitchens and from the dungeons to the battlements, all the lost souls of Midlam Manor walked the corridors once more...

 

Midlam Miniatures are pleased to present a collection of nine 28mm scale ghost miniatures for use in all of your fantasy, horror and pulp games.

Optional Add-On - The Vampires of Old Midlam Town

 

Doing his best to ignore the incessant moans and cries, the Baron examined a message that had just arrived from the High Wizard of Midlam, informing him that suspicious characters had arrived by coach from Ammerlund and since then there has already been a number of suspicious disappearances.  Of course, his help was urgently required.  The Baron sighed, hoping he could get rid of the ghosts quickly before the vampire cult became established In Midlam...

 

To bolster the ranks of the Undead, we present a set of 7 classic Vampires, available as an add-on to the main reward.

These metal Vampire models are approximately 28-30mm tall (from sole of foot to top of head, excluding integral metal base).  They are supplied unpainted and without the plastic base or scenery shown in the picture, which is for illustrative purposes only.

With her head, tucked, underneath her arm,

She walks the Bloody Tower!

With head, tucked, underneath her arm,

At the midnight hour!

She comes to haunt King Henry,

She means to give him "What for",

Gadzook! She's going to tell him off,

for having spilt her gore!

And just in case the headsman,

wants to give her an encore,

She has her head tucked underneath her arm!

 

I used to be able to recite the whole thing, but that's all I can remember now.

 

(In fact I used to be able to declaim most of "Eskimo Nell", but that would only get me sent to beekeepers, I suspect.)

While I am not planning on backing this one due to a combinations of funds and overlap with my current collection, I wanted to pop in just to say that Midlam makes fantastic miniatures: great sculpts, great quality of casting, and insanely quick delivery.

I can still sing the whole thing - as well as Unfortunate Miss Bailey....

 

I really like these ghosts - they have personality.

 

The Auld Grump - I can also sing all the verses of I'm 'Enery the Eight, I am - contrary to the claim of Herman's Hermits, the second verse is not the same as the first.

Ahem! (Strikes pose)

 

There's a one-eyed yellow idol

To the north of Kathmandu;

There's a little marble cross below the town;

And a broken-hearted woman,

Tends the grave of "Mad" Carew,

While the Yellow God forever gazes down...

 

Strictly declamation for me. My singing is generally agreed to constitute cruel and unusual punishment.

 

 Definitely having at least Lord Darkbarrow.

For those unaware, a lot in their store is from the former Metal Magic line.

Skeletons, Orcs etc are from those moulds.

Very characterful minis!

They're heeeeeeere! :wub:

Death, the headless, and the accuser:

The dwarf accuser is the least undead looking at first glance. But upon closer look, his eyes are pretty sunken.

 

The "chasers":

They are quite unstable unless the bottom of the bases are perfectly smooth. Will need larger bases.

 

Feels like I need a "Scooby-Doo and the gang" set of minis.

Tag now updated.

You should probably go with "fulfilling" instead of "funded".

      About this project
       
       
      A Song of Ice & Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game is a competitive miniatures game for two or more players. Each player controls one of the Great Houses of Westeros, commanding battlefield units, recruiting legendary Heroes, and manipulating the political stage, in the attempt to claim the greatest prize of all: The Iron Throne. Featuring House Stark and House Lannister, the Starter Set comes with over one hundred amazing, preassembled miniatures that are ready to play out of the box! All-new sculpts are based off original art created for the game by our crew under the direct supervision of George R.R. Martin and Dark Sword Miniatures, to ensure that the game delivers what fans have been envisioning for years.
      The Stark vs Lannister Starter Set is a perfect introduction to a new miniatures game. With accessible and streamlined gameplay designed by Eric M. Lang and Michael Shinall, A Song of Ice and Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game features 5 different Game Modes, Army Building and Customization options, and choices of Commanders and Attachments. This Set packs a lot of gameplay for 2 players!

      The loyal followers of the Direwolf Banner rally to defend the North! Miniatures come unpainted. Just before starting a game, players must build their armies, based on an agreed upon amount of points. Using these points, players forge the core of their army with powerful  Combat Units, such as the Stark Sworn Swords or Lannister Guards into their army. Each of these units has its own strengths and weaknesses.

      3D Render of the Lannister Guards. 2 copies of this unit are included in the Starter Set!  
      Combat Unit cards  
      Attachments
      A player can also augment these units with powerful Attachments, which range from generic additions, like the Lannister Guard Captain, to legendary figures such as Ser Gregor Clegane: The Mountain.

      This came across my newsfeed on Facebook and I thought the minis looked interesting.

      This Kickstarter campaign is a collaboration between legendary game designer Jennell Jaquays and sculptor Darcy Perry, following the appearance of ducks in the previous Star Hat Miniatures Kickstarter: Delvers Lost in the Dungeons of Doom III. 
      This is also an opportunity for YOU to contribute! With the Legendary Hero pledge, YOU can collaborate with us to bring new characters to the Quack Keep module and gaming table.
      The Module  
      This Kickstarter will provide funds for Quack Keep - inspired by classic game adventure modules of the past but written to be more approachable for a new generation of role-players and workable with a wide range of game rules thanks to the 5th Wall Generic Rank System. It even comes with a fold-out GM screen as a cover!
       
      The title is a nod to Quag Keep, the first novel based on a roleplaying game, published by Andre Norton in 1978 - around the same time that Jennell Jaquays began producing Advanced Dungeons & Dragons and Runequest modules for Judges Guild. The Caverns of Thracia and Dark Tower are both best-selling examples of her early work, both still in print after almost 40 years.  
      The later inspired Legendary Duck Tower and other Tales, which included a ducky-pastiche of her original Dark Tower cover. It was due to this and her work for Chaosium that Jennell Jaquays "was pretty much labeled as that designer and artist who did the ducks."

      Legendary Duck! YOU be the HERO! Stretch Goals
      There is a Stretch Goal unleashed for every 1k funding goal reached and each one is a game changer: a new Duck will appear! Either a new Duck Hero or Legendary Duck will be made available for you to choose as part of your pledge.
      1k Stretch Goal Unleashed: Oduck!  
      2k Stretch Goal Unleashed: The Quack Knight!  
       
       
      Glen Fidduck is almost a must-have for me ;)
