Aren't most rpgs luck based? Dice are cruel mistresses. But I think it's each hero has their own strengths, in classic mode it's more like a duel of wits, but arcade is more teamwork. Plus the loot you get can help a ton. Rulebook includes options to make the heroes or consul more powerful too.

Of course ^_^ !!

 

But all games have a certain amount of luck and strategy. If it is just luck it becomes boring. If it is all strategy it loses appeal to casual players.

Well on BGG and the sodapop forums are lists with hero ratings. The veteran players that were making those lists are quite similar in their rating of the individual heroes; the maximum difference is usually only one step up or down, never two or more (well tbh: in just one case). They both rate for instance Princess Malya and Royal Paladin as extremely powerful ("SS" rating) and Deeproot Treant, Thundervale Huntress and Royal Warden as very weak ("C" rating). On a scale of Super Strong (SS), Strong (S), Average (A), Below Average (B) and Weak ("C").

 

So with such huge differences one would expect the hero choice to have a major impact on the outcome of the game. What I meant is that in order to encourage people to pick the less powerful heroes you could for instance give heroes ratings and have a house rule that the heroes on average must have an "average" rating.

 

 

@Findariel, I'm not familiar with Miniature Market on Black Friday, it will be my first for the site. I have 5 hero add-ons sitting in my cart and hoping to hit the free shipping. I know I can pad it with Krosmaster for my friend and Reaper Miniatures for myself. ^__^

Let's wait and see! MM offers the minis I want for far lower prices than SodaPop but shipping is so much more that it is still more expensive.

So I'm more or less hoping that SodaPop offers something extra on black friday as I don't see MM lowering the prices any further.

Yup! I ended up with 9 heroes and a bunch of Bones figures. :D

 

No clue about Soda Pop, but man that would hurt more in the money area.

I couldn't resist the Stilt Town Zombie Warband and another hero either. I've been wanting Maire-Claude and the zombie bunny for a while. MM also had the Mistmourn Coast Warband on sale for $22 last month. I don't know if Soda Pop will have any sales but I'd be surprised if they ever had comparable deals to Miniature Market.

Doing a quick search, it was 15% off storewide in 2013. However we should probably curb the discussion of retail purchases lest this thread is closed off similar to Kingdom Death. ^__^

 

Regardless, I'm excited about the amount of chibis coming in from the kickstarter. I went completionist level (that last tier they added).

Well for Euro people (like me) it's slightly different because MM asks a lot more shipping costs, often 3-4 times as much as SP.

Ah, I never realized Soda Pop had such lower shipping to Europe. That's good to know. It sounds kind of like shopping the Reaper store where free shipping is the big discount.

What! Do they really have a 20% off sale? I don't see it but I'd order another expansion if that were the case.

Yes, please. I want to be able to talk about the sculpts as they are released.

 

Speaking of that, what are everyone's thoughts on the cat Druid?

It's my favorite mini in the kickstarter and might be my favorite thing ever. The paws, the cat tongue, her winking face... *squee*

      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

      About
      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.
