Fairytales meet The Hunger Games/Battle Royale

Recommended Posts

Strangely, today a box showed up from UPS with two copies of the game in it.. the first one came via USPS Priority mail.  So now I have a 3rd copy.  These people are so disorganized.

I late backed this through picking up a dropped pledge... So I should be getting the game... maybe? I think... So it is possibly on its way to me or not... maybe... definitely possibly... I think. Maybe?

Dang, that's a nice Baba Yaga sculpt.  I hadn't even realized she was in this.

Maybe it's the curse of cool Baba Yaga minis...the project creators always seem disorganized.

Had an interesting mail from Greenbrier Games today stating that they, like the backers, are unable to contact Alex Lim. This is worrying as GBG are supposed to be overseeing fulfillment

Haven't received anything yet, I'm not sure that anyone outside of the US got the Sacred 40

I live in Brazil and received the Sacred 40 a long time ago. But that was it, no cards, no new minis, no game box, no nothing...

I was a late backer. Bought someone else's (actually 2 pledges) I received the sacred 40. Have to say I was not impressed by the material or size of minis. That was many months ago. Nothing since. I don't get updates but have sort of followed along. So I guess that sacred 40 cost me $240. Oh well at least I got something.

I'm baffled at why they chose such a strange size, when there are so many established sizes that would enable wider use of the figures.  To their credit I think the size was listed in the FAQ on Kickstarter, but it definitely wasn't well advertised.  I didn't find out about it until I received my Sacred 40 figures last year, and was surprised as the scale.

 

I was looking forward to some of the horror figures (especially Slender Man) as a gift for someone...

I dunno, but the lack of interest in info on the minis themselves that the project creator and most of the backers posting in the Kickstarter comments section shared had me baffled from the very beginning.

I really liked the concept and I liked the look of the minis....it's a shame that I never received any so was unable to make comment.

 

Nice to see you by the way Darscy, I find that our paths cross less often these days, and you were always one of my favourite people on the boards...after myself of course

I tend to stay out of beekeepers but I've seen you're more active there Beagle.

Real life has left me with less time to visit the forums lately. When I do it's usually to deal more with Modstuff than funstuff.

Hoping to change that once things have settled down for me.

 

Also went back to reread the first few pages of this thread. A lot of warning signs were there about where this Kickstarter was headed.

I'm staying away from Beekeepers from now on.

      About
      Welcome to Black Hallows, where light and dark wrestle for control, where travelers must be on their guard as even the most innocent looking old woman could be hiding a secret... let us introduce you to the Townsfolk of Black Hallows.
       The Townsfolk is a range of 14 non-player character miniatures, crafted from the highest grade, lead free Pewter (This quality of metal is normally only used for masters). They are available in either 28mm or 32mm and will come with their own base toppers and plastic bases. They are ideal for use in role playing games like D&D, Pathfinder, etc. Use them in your war games or collect and paint them for display.
      28mm miniatures have 25mm plastic bases and 32mm miniatures have 32mm plastic bases.
      We are also offering any of the characters in a 75mm resin version (see below). 75mm resin versions have a cast resin plinth.
      All of the manufacture will be done in-house at Z1 Design, which means as soon as the first batch is ready, we can ship. So early backers can expect early delivery. We will deliver in order of backer number and it is possible that we will ship the first batch before Christmas.
       The future of Black Hallows -
      We are currently working on further characters including both townsfolk and hero characters. The main Black Hallows game is scheduled for release in 2019. This will include 4 factions and the option of an extensive range of scenery and buildings.
      We also have an author working on the Novel of Black Hallows.
      We have an exciting year ahead of us!
      PLEASE NOTE THAT THE MAIN BLACK HALLOWS GAME TO BE RELEASED IN 2019 WILL USE 32mm MINIATURES
      75mm Resin Miniatures
      All of the Townsfolk are available at 75mm cast in resin. Centrifugal cast in a high quality polyurethane resin.
      Just add £18 per miniature to your pledge. You can choose as many as you like from the full range.
      Or you can pledge for the Collectors/ Painters Pledge which includes all 15 miniatures (including the Druid) for £240
       
      Painted Samples
      The 75mm Blacksmith painted by Angel Giraldez
      Here we have the Druid & the Farmer's daughter painted by Elias Alonso
       We have to say a big thanks to Alfonso Prieto and Elias Alonso from Beholder factory for working with us to create this project.

      Welcome to our second Black Hallows Kickstarter campaign. With the lead up to the main game later this year, we are now expanding the range and have the following on offer.
      28mm, 32mm and 75mm character miniatures
      Horses & carts
      The first two buildings for the world of Black Hallows (the first of many)
      The Black Hallows: Cradle of Darkness novel
      RPG content
      ...and of course, there are many stretch goals to unlock during the campaign.
      Early Backers Special FREE Model - The iron cage - Limited to the first 300 main pledges only
      i.e. The Townsfolk II pledge or the Tavern Pledge or above.
      (£45 or more)
      Welcome to the world of Black Hallows on this bitterly cold night, the wind is howling outside "The Boar's Head" tavern, the horses are restless in the stables, and a figure moves in the shadows...is it friend or foe? The Townsfolk are sleeping soundly in their beds, unaware of the danger that may be creeping towards them. The clouds race across the sky, and the wind continues to howl.
      The Townsfolk II is the second set in a range of non-player character miniatures, crafted from the highest grade, lead free Pewter (This quality of metal is normally only used for masters). They are available in either 28mm or 32mm and will come with their own base toppers and plastic bases. They are ideal for use in role playing games like D&D, Pathfinder, etc. Use them in your war games or collect and paint them for display.
      28mm miniatures have 25mm plastic bases and 32mm miniatures have 32mm plastic bases.
      We are also offering any of the characters in a 75mm resin version (see below). 75mm resin versions have a cast resin plinth.
      We will be using Backerkit as our pledge manager after the campaign ends. If you wish to pledge for add-ons, add the funds to your main pledge on Kickstarter and then inform us of your choice using the pledge manager. 
      Let us introduce you to the characters in the Townsfolk II.
      Gazamunder is the town's resident rat catcher; with him the only thing you can ever be sure of is that you can never be sure of him. Need information? It's yours at a price. Need information that's actually true? It'll cost you twice as much. Plookes, his faithful ratter, is the only living soul that he cares about.
      Yarog's life has been an interesting one and if he could be persuaded to speak of it, the tales would certainly entertain the travelers that stop at the Boar's Head. He was raised in the far north, to a clan famed for their engineering prowess, destined to one day be their leader. However, Yarog always knew he wanted something different from life, something that he could get his teeth into. He left the safety and tradition of home and set off to find adventure and a really good recipe for tripe.
      Garot the Butcher, cold and unfeeling, like the carcasses that surround him. Butchery comes naturally to him and at times he enjoys his job a little too much. Hacking and slashing with relish, no wonder the other townsfolk only visit his shop in pairs!
      Mace & Ridley live by the saying "They who drink beer will think beer!" and as the towns only brewers, they take their work very seriously and do a lot of "thinking".Which explains the slightly glazed expression, the unsteadiness of balance and the bouts of raucous singing. No one quite knows how they make a living from brewing their famous ale, but they're never short of cash, even when they do appear to drink all the profit! 
      The fine silks, sumptuous linens, and exotic velvet speak of wealth and power and Nikolai Magnus cultivates the illusion of being a successful textile merchant very well, but everyone knows cloth isn't the real source of his income. He is a loan shark of the most cold-blooded type.
      You wouldn't think it to look at him,  sat hunched on his cart, but there's a lot more to Rawkin than meets the eye. There aren't many places he hasn't been and there's not much he hasn't seen or done. He knows pretty much every living being on the dirt roads from here to where the soil becomes the sea.
        Add-Ons: The Hero Characters £6 (Each)
      Kindra Whispersong was called to service by her God as a young girl. The divine magic that glows in her eyes and the powers that accompany it, has led her into many adventures and battles that most of the townsfolk could never imagine. She never speaks of her quest; that is between her and her deity. 
      The tranquil, dignified air of Awyn Moonbinder only hints at the power, the energy and the skill that lies beneath his tanned skin and within his toned muscles. His spiritual training allows him to harness the power of the Hallows. He is a unique being, born on the furthest plains. Maybe that is why he feels at home as a lone wanderer, only ever passing through the village when he's returning to the monastery. 
      Gulm, though his distinctively Orkish features cause many to shy away from him, he was raised by a loving human mother and like the stone he works, the sharp edges of his Ork personality have been smoothed. His strength and savagery are channeled through the tools he uses, making him the most sought after stonemason in the town.
