Wow, thanks to all the backers!!! It was a great campaign.

 

The beast is free for all.

 

Thanks again.

Congratulations on the successful campaign.

As I said previously, I just pledged enough for the character minis and 3D scenery pack but I'll see what my hobby budget looks like when the pledge manager comes out. Might upgrade to a level to get the game.

Already overdue and the latest update is about changing manufacturers for the project.

 

Getting a bit concerned about when this will be fulfilled.

Only 4 months away from being 2 years overdue, the longest delay of all my outstanding kickstarters that I haven’t declared dead, and... There’s more delays.

 

This time because apparently the manufacturer has mispacked several items in the wrong packaging.

 

Ironically none of the errors appear to affect the two items I ordered, but all the shipping is being delayed.

 

So Blech.

 

And this is all I ordered:

Looks like they needed some sort of loan, not that this is uncommon for KS games (eg. Middara). Was this mentioned in the Updates?

https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/2207746/question-creating-games

 

I passed on this one because of its First Created status, I have enough zombie miniatures, and I'm greedy so wanted more miniatures.... :zombie:

 

EDIT: Scroll down. I asked about project management experience, and didn't see any in their response. https://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/706408.page

I hadn’t heard of that. No. Though it’s been obvious there has been larger issues happening behind the scenes than they, the projects creators, have publicly admitted to.

 

Unfortunately this kickstarter came out when I was really into zombie games and the survivor minis and scatter terrain really caught my attention, and I overlooked some aspects of the project that normally would have given me pause in backing.

 

Just glad I didn’t go in bigger as I was tempted to.

I don't know if any one else noticed or still cares but it looks like this one is beginning to ship.  Initial shipping in Spain started this week and they are expecting to start US and ROW shipping in January.  

 

Not my longest wait but it was getting there (Plots, Judges Guild, and Ooith still hold that position...)

I was actually surprised to see the update that shipping has at least started for Spain. We might actually get something out of this.

Fingers crossed on maybe getting close to finally putting this project to rest, but now I’m concerned what the final production minis are going to look like next to the other companies I collect.

I am not sure.  the company sure had its share of new company woes.  I will be pretty impressed that they actually pulled it out and produced something playable. I have looked over the rules of the actual game a time or two and it looks like it may have promise (I was never too much of a zombiecide fan, too much combat not enough suspense... strange to say for a zombie game but I'm picky in my zombie movies and video games so it would be logical for that to spill over into my boardgaming experience.  I did wind up funding the base game so I will get to see how it plays.  Since i dont have any other zombie games, i am not to worried about compatibility.

So I was a bit in shock. My pledge showed up in Illinois today with no warning. Was a little worried as Spanish was written on the outside of the box. So I opened it up....

 

....to stay positive and look on the bright side the minis look pretty nice and know I get to learn Spanish!

I received mine in the mail today, again out of nowhere, it just showed up.  Opened things up to see what was there and everything is in English!

 

It certainly looks pretty cool.  but it will have to wait until i either finish Gloomhaven or KD:M before i bring it out on the table.

Any one have a chance to break out their copy and play it?  We waited a long time for this.  Hoping it was worth the wait!

 

soon to be headed to my bench for paint jobs on the minis to get them up to some kind of tabletop so i will know soon how well they minis hold paint!

IIRC there was some YouTube reviews floating about in Spanish and from what the Spanish backers have said about the review vids and from their own experience is that the game is pretty good, the links and backer reviews might be a bit buried in the comment section now though.

      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.
