About this project

During my first kickstarter I was given many requests by gamers if I could make specific trays for various games. For those of you who remember the kickstarter originally had standard troop trays, however I ended up making the X-Wing set within a week into the kickstarter campaign. The X-Wing showed to be a hit.

This kickstarter is developed for gamers who play Zcide or any Zombie themed game as there’s a serious lack of specifc storage options for them and a genuine need for one which I believe gamers and Zombie themed game developers will really appreciate. The trays can also be used for game systems using 28mm models.

I’d just like to thank Raymond aka “Sjeng†for wanting to help me with the Zcide loadouts. He’s been very passionate in the project, assisting in the design and testing with great insight with the focus of wanting to help Zcide players. Sjeng is fortunate to have pretty much everything released for Zcide and tested the loadouts to their full potential.

I got six of the cases and was very impressed with what I have received they are worth the wait. The only let down is the fact his comms is not that great and the order of fulfilment seems to be very haphazard. I would purchase from Mantis again.

 

I don't have zombie side (yet) so I won't be getting involved in this kickstarter.

Unless the boxes I am waiting for from his last kickstarter arrive before this one finishes I won't be backing. Completely motivated by the decision I made not to back any kickstarters from companies I'm still waiting for product from than any specific concern here.

Ditto.

After some of the horror stories I've read on this forum, that seems like a totally reasonable thing to do.

That's where I am too, especially considering he is basically a one man show, any work on the new kickstarter is time not fulfilling the previous one.

It was supposed to go live on the 3rd, but he had a bit of push back from backers who want the rewards from the first kickstarter before he starts a new one.

 

He had a breakdown of numbers in the latest update, saying between ks run time, ks collecting/releasing funds, and surveys he'd have almost 60 days to finish shipping out the current kickstarter before needing to do work on the new one. There are 245 orders left to ship, most (170) of which are two case orders.

 

He makes a good case for running the new project right away, it all comes down to whether or not you think he can maintain a pace of packing up 4 orders a day (22 are 10+ case orders though). I expect he will launch it soon, most backers seem to be supportive since he explained everything.

This is not true however. He does packing and shipping during the workday, and watches the KS in the evenings when he's home. The new KS will not interfere with his current shipping. You can't expect him to be packing 24/7. He's already putting in a lot of effort and time in his spare time. The entire preperation for the zombie KS has been done in the evenings and weekends. I know, because I helped him.

 

I for one will be backing again. Very happy with his product.

      $70 for 100+ miniatures, plus a free Terrax. Some overlap with Bones KS sculpts.
       
      Company is based in Spain, and, while this is their first plastic injection molding KS, they've been producing resin miniatures in previous KS.
       
      Myself, I've backed Bones I-IV, and double-pledged for Black List Game's Fantasy I and II, so am on the fence. And have a lot of mold lines to scrape.

      This Kickstarter just launched for double-sided magnetic dungeon tiles. Similar to Ettinstone tiles, and aside from appearing to be a bit thinner, I can’t see why these wouldn’t work with Ettinstone tiles (I certainly plan to use them that way).

      I didn't see this KS listed after a quick search.  I like the painters, and I like HD, but there's just so much free stuff out there now...

      Story
        Fallen Knight is a classic cooperative dungeon-crawler set in an outlandish dark fantasy world. Players take on the role of death knights, lost warriors who devour the memories of the dead for their silent gods. Once consumed, these long-forgotten memories can be used to unlock powerful, forsaken abilities. Alongside their mechanical advantages, these memories will be showcased in a beautifully realized artistic comic, revealing new insights into these dark lands..  Through a combination of its foreboding themes, exciting game mechanics, and unique artistic vision, Fallen Knight occupies an innovative space within the board game hobby, and we're so excited for you to be a part of it!
       

       

        Story The Fallen Knights were created by the Gods with the sole purpose of acquiring and reliving lost memories, to better satiate the Gods' voyeuristic appetites. Like dogs on a leash, the Knights were bound by oath to track and consume specific memories, as demanded by their greedy masters. These lost memories -- once consumed -- would offer the Knights a rare, tender glimpse of life. Yet it was fleeting; when returned, they were reduced once more to lifeless husks by their hideous lords. And so it continued for an age, in an endless cycle of servitude, lifelessness and hate....
      Now, the Gods are gone. The curse is broken, and the Knights are free to live and relive any memories they encounter. But like bad dreams, these memories are vague and fractured. And so it's time to leave the realm of the Gods, for Fallen Knights must forge their own path, or be lost forever alongside the memories they covet.
        Corpses As you travel the world, you will absorb the memories of corpses - both found and defeated - in order to enhance your characters, freely developing them as you wish.
      You will spend 'life' to reanimate 'unsouled' Fallen Knights, mastering their bodies and upgrading their potential effect on the game.
        Damned sword The Fallen Knight's 'Damned Sword' can naturally morph into new weapons; you'll be able to access the martial abilities of any character class, as long as you've consumed the right memories!
        Gameplay Fallen knight is a 1-4 player cooperative dungeon crawler board game. The gameplay consists of strategic, visceral combat, embedded within a campaign-driven framework. Though consumed memories, players will unlock the abilities of dead adventurers, which they can then use in combat. Each ability is represented by a unique ability card, composed of an individual action, a character class and weapon type.                 
      Synergies are special active or passive skills that Fallen Knights will receive if they have multiple abilities of the same class or weapon type. With hundreds of ability cards and over 20 unique synergies, Fallen Knight provides a dynamic and exciting space for character creation, customization and optimization!
      Instead of dice, Fallen Knight utilizes a sub-action deck. With over 20 sub-action cards, players can flexibly tailor their strategy to best deal with their immediate foes!
      Monsters are controlled by a combination of Monster Action cards and Monster Behavior cards. Monster actions - unique to each creature in Fallen Knight - will dictate its actions during boss battle combat. Monster behaviors - drawn from a deck shared by all monsters in the game - will modify the monster's actions by adjusting damage range or type, changing targets, or activating a myriad of special abilities.

      Looks like Miniac will be doing something to promote this, which I think will likely take it to funded.

      I think the frogfolk are particularly fun, but they have a bunch of other stuff. Worth checking out, there's an early bird special for the STL files or the physical resin prints. Because they're doing it all in house, appears to have a pretty quick turnaround too.
