Z One Design - Black Hallows Townsfolk

Recommended Posts

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.

ac39f177dd0500e1d811e3f2e3fa3677_origina

 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

^^ that. 

 

I wish there were options for just one or a few instead of a big one or all.

Shoot 'em a message!

 

Seems odd that they're not allowing individual miniatures, when their Druid add-on is... an individual miniature. Maybe they don't want to worry about having to have extra casts because everyone wants a Malin and not an Edmund. :lol:

 

So would 28mm or 32mm be a better scale with Bones? 

 

This is their first miniatures KS, although they've fulfilled others (?). Anyone have experience with them? TIA!

Definitely backing this one. Excellent sculpts at a very reasonable price for metal minis. I'm guessing 28mm would be the best to order to be compatible with Reaper stuff?

Saw the project on my fb newsfeed a few days ago.

I’ve doubts on what the final production figures will actually look like.

 

Keep thinking of how poorly realistically proportioned renders translate into production small scale miniatures.

Thinking of the shallow details of the unpainted Wizkids line of human/humanoid minis.

Or the mess of the minis from the Kickstarter based on the Walking Dead tv series.

Both companies had great looking realistically proportioned renders just like those shown here but they did not translate well into production minis.

 

Would need physical proof this project creator knows what they’re doing.

 

Also find the multiple scale option a bit odd. Would need to see some comparison photos with other minis to see what the project creator thinks is a 28mm mini vs a 32mm one.

The painted ones are supposedly painted (pewter) casts, but yeah. I expect those to be masters, not production casts.  

They claim to have a full in-house production line with experienced crews. but this is their first big metal/resin project. 

(Until now they've mostly sold 3D print models)   

 

And I'm sad to say, the females are too cheesy even for me. 

The farmer's plough is more like the bow of an Ironclad than a farming tool.

The smith's hammer is a heavy weapon, not a useful tool for the smitty.

Shouldn't the Serving wench be carrying the same size and type steins/jugs/whatever as her father is handling?

Shouldn't the Guard and Captain have more similar helmets? They're very different in styles. 

 

In my opinion, the only model really worth having is the Granny. and that one doesn't interest me.

(Most 'old crone' minis are  caricatures. This one seems to be a bit better.)

I'm skipping this one.

Good points, all.  But I am in, anyway.  Perhaps I have a lesson to learn.

      It is time to sharpen thy shovel once again! Shovel Knight makes his auspicious return to Kickstarter in Shovel Knight: Dungeon Duels! Based on the hugely successful crowdfunded video game and made in close cooperation with Yacht Club Games, Shovel Knight: Dungeon Duels  is a competitive side-scrolling dungeon crawler for 1-4 players.  Players compete as different colored Shovel Knights to shovel out  justice in spades against the evil Order of No Quarter all while trying  to grab the most treasure to prove that they are the one true Shovel  Knight! 

       

      the relaunch offers a more expensive 3D option shown above, and a cheaper 2D version with card standees in place of the plastic minis for those that prefer it

      I didn't see this listed so:
       
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/archonstudio/dungeonsandlasers-plastic-tabletop-rpg-scenery
       
      I received an engineering sample of the product today. They're made of hard gray injection-molded plastic, my guess would be ABS from its hardness and density. The floor and wall ties fit together tightly, though it takes a bit of effort that likely would wear at paint on those surfaces had they been painted. Due to response from earlier sample recipients, the production tiles will be slightly larger than the samples.

      First Legion 75mm Fantasy "Femmes Fatales" Resin Figure Kits
      A new series of provocative 75mm Fantasy Resin Figure Kits, each one beautifully sculpted and cast and a joy to paint.   
      Who We Are
      First Legion has long been a leading producer of 60mm scale superbly hand painted historical metal and resin figures as well as metal and resin figures kits in various scales. We most recently expanded into 28mm Fantasy miniatures with a huge launch of amazing sculpts that will be coming to retail early next year.   Please visit our websites and social media for more information.

      The theme of the series is "Femmes Fatales", beautiful but dangerous women characters. Whether by force,  guile, or seduction these ladies are not to be fussed with.    There are 7 figures in total, each one more beautiful than the next and ranging in style from Gothic, to far eastern, nomadic, northern, and even an Aztec.   The commonality to them is that they are all stunning models of beautiful, dangerous women.  
      Those of you who followed our 28mm Fantasy Minis Kickstarter will recognize these figures from the "Femmes Fatales" Core Set.   They were originally sculpted in 75mm scale and reduced in scale to 28mm to be included in that KS as part of our 28mm fantasy series.  We present them here as originally conceived.    
      Unlike our 28mm KS, which had 170+ models, this KS is purposely very simple and very succinct.    Stunning models at great prices with rewards shipping in just 3 months!    
      Pledge Levels
      The first 5 Figures listed below are tied to pledge levels with selections to be made in our pledge manager following funding.   The higher the pledge level, but better deal it is on each figure.  
      Early Bird Pledge Levels are open for the first 27 hours.
      Add-On Sets
      The last two are available as an add-ons only, or as part of the "Drop Dead Gorgeous" Pledge Level.  Finally, there are three more that will be optional add-ons tied to stretch goals. 
      Resin Figure Kits
      All miniatures are produced in high quality resin and provided unpainted and unassembled.
      Mature Audience
      The figures below contain some nudity and are not suitable for audiences under 18.
      If you are offended by such figures, please stop reading and just move on.   They are purposely designed to be risqué, sexy, dangerous, and above all beautiful.

      About
      Hello everyone,
      A warm welcome to our latest Kickstarter called Cyber Belles!
      These fairies have survived the eons and have adapted to modern times. We've placed them in an apocalyptic setting where mankind has all but destroyed the world and... itself! The fairies have evolved and have adjusted to the needs necessary to survive in this dangerous place! 
      The campaign will help us fund the production of three 75mm miniatures and maybe something else... which is small... and cute... ;) 
      The campaign is about three 75mm scale miniatures. Red Belle, Blue Belle and Yellow Belle.
      The artwork
      Red Belle Blue Belle Yellow Belle Note: the sculpts are a little bit different from the artwork shown. We mostly chose to do this to make them a little bit more realistic and also to make sure that the casting were strong enough in the end.
