Von Unaussprechlichen Kulten: Tabletop Cult Skirmishes

About this project

What is Von Unaussprechlichen Kulten?

Von Unaussprechlichen Kulten (…or Kulten…or VUK for short) is an horrific, violent and often disturbingly amusing cult battle and management game in which players create cults and clash amongst each other for the favour of their gods; ancient, evil and tenebrous though they may be…

331eeebdeabfba228ec06469ab01fd2f_origina

Players may choose between six different cults:

- Arcane Seekers

- Cult De Ghouls

- Dagonites

- Death Cult

- Dunwich Folk

- Serpent Worshippers

Each game of Kulten plays in 30-60 minutes and requires 3-10 models per cult. The option-filled advancement system is fraught with mind and body snapping injuries, madness and other perils as well as shocking dark rewards!

Will you and your twisted brethren reign as the supreme cult? Can you beg, borrow and kill enough to support your deviant flock? What colours should your cult robes be? All important questions that will be answered when you play Von Unaussprechlichen Kulten!

The Rulebook

The game itself has been around for many years, being the game of the official fan club of Strange Aeons (The Cult of the Black Goat!). If that sentence made no sense, don’t worry. Just know that we have done all this before. This will be our seventh book and our second game.

The rulebook itself will see a massive overhaul, adding many new and bizarre rules and scenarios as well as freshly updated profiles, bringing it in line with Strange Aeons Second Edition (both share the same universe and rule framework).

We here at Uncle Mikes Worldwide are quite excited as VUK is a favorite of staff and hardcore fans alike. While Von Unaussprechlichen Kulten may have been around a while it has never seen physical print, thanks to you this Kickstarter will change that. However, it will only be a one-time print run…after all this is our cult cult game.

The Miniatures

Uncle Mikes Worldwide has been making unpainted, resin, 32mm miniatures for over ten years now and as you may have guessed we have more on offer here. Sculpted by your fellow humans including Kyla Richards, Iain Colwell and the nefarious Bob Murch.

As well as our usual resin, many of the models created for VUK will have additional metal parts making for greater customizability of your individual cult and ensuring the models for Kulten are the greatest that we have ever produced!

Even now the fires from the forges and smoke from the braziers can be seen dimly as the slumbering staff awaken and resume work through the nights…

Rewards and Add-Ons

All those who dare to pledge at the $20 Pensive Acolyte level and above shall receive the Von Unaussprechlichen Kulten rulebook in PDF form, delivered via dark sorcery (or the internet). Above $50, and you'll also receive a physical copy to clutch in your trembling hands.

But what of miniatures, with which to play this devilish game? Higher pledge levels include a set value of miniatures (and sweet discounts for the truly devoted) which you'll pick out yourself once the campaign is over. Or, simply increase your pledge by the dollar value of whatever goodies you wish to procure.

Depicted below are the fiendish collections of miniatures we have on offer. More dark rewards will be unleashed as the campaign progresses, so keep your eyes wide...

Cultists. Who can run a cult without ‘em? Find here a plethora of semi-competent underlings armed in an assortment of violent and dangerous ways. Usable as an Arcane Seekers cult and indeed in all cults, don’t be found gaming without these 10 multipurpose (and murderous) minions…some of which are Kickstarter exclusives, never to be offered again!

Sculpted by Kyla Richards, based on the artwork of Toren Atkinson. You get these 10 single part resin figures: Cult Leader, KS Exclusive Midget High Priest, KS Exclusive High Priestess and Cultists armed with Pistol, Knife, Wrecking Hammer, Bolt-Action Rifle, Shotgun, Axe and Tommy Gun.

If you like unsettling rubberiness and are a fan of clandestine midnight corpse feasts, then this cult is for you! Behold the imposing Ghoul King and his twisted ilk, their ranks bolstered by ever hungry swarms of graveyard vermin. This is our first time using both resin and metal components and we couldn’t be happier with the results.

Ghouls sculpted by Bob Murch, based on the artwork of Nick Gucker, Rats sculpted by Kyla Richards, based on actual rats. These figures are produced in resin with an assortment of metal parts for endless customization. Don’t endure the pain of being without: Ghoul King, 4 Ghouls, 6 Rat Swarms and 12 arms including open right and left hand, holding shotgun, torch, cleaver and bow.

 What happens in the cemetery stays in the cemetery…especially if you have the witnesses for supper. Get up to no good in the worst possible ways when you add these debauched scumbags to your Cult de Ghouls.

Ghouls sculpted by Bob Murch, based on the artwork of Nick Gucker. Witch, rats, familiars and cauldron sculpted by Kyla Richards. These figures are produced in resin with an assortment of metal parts for endless customization. Shipped in a nondescript parcel you will receive: 2 Ghouls with 6 arms (one of each type), 3 Rat Swarms, Witch, 3 Familiars and Cauldron.

Mobs of poorly trained fodder dying horrifically for my amusement is very high on my personal gaming preference scale.

Flavor seems kind of like Mordheim, as staged in a literal graveyard...

Received.  Got the rulebook and the generic cultists.  The book is full color and larger than I was expecting (most of it is for the various cults) and definitely gets style points for all the artwork.  The cultists are pretty basic sculpts, but have a lot of character.  Really cool product overall.

      Story
      Echoes of Camelot: Arthurian Legends is a project that will expand our 75mm resin miniature range with new and exciting models based on the Matter of Britan, particularly around the figure of King Arthur and his Knights. We have many cool surprises prepared should you help us bring this dream to life.
      These miniatures have been sculpted and painted here at the Big Child Creatives studio with the collaboration of some of the most talented miniature artists out there. And what is more, they will be manufactured by our own talented team of resin casting experts. This allows us to monitor the process closely to ensure the best quality in the market and a timely delivery.
      We have learned a lot from our previous campaigns, and we want to put all this experience to good use, repeating everything we did right, improving upon it, and correcting our past mistakes. We invite you to join us in this journey of discovery throughout the Matter of Britain and its amazing cast of unique characters.
      This campaign is a journey of discovery, full of surprises such as custom bits to make your miniatures even more striking than they already are. Some of these kits will be Kickstarter exclusive, so those of you who choose to support us will be able to proudly show it through unique miniatures, even more full of life and character than our regular releases.
