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.

      This KS is now live.  URL: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/450703636/battletech-clan-invasion
       
      Catalyst Game Labs will be launching a Kickstarter project for a Clan Invasion box set for BattleTech on July 17, 2019.  This was announced on the BattleTech forums about two weeks ago.  I've copied the announcement below:
       
       

      In 3050, the true heirs of the lost Star League thunder forth from the depths of the far Periphery and carve deep into the quarreling Successor States. As the Clan juggernaut rolls across the coreward realms of the Inner Sphere, the House Lords scramble to shore up their defenses and devise some way to halt the invaders.
       
      The Clan spear is aimed at the heart of human-occupied space. Do you possess the bold tactics and heroic courage to defeat warriors trained from birth to conquer? Or will you uphold Kerensky’s dream to cast aside the squabbling lords of the Inner Sphere and reignite the flame of the Star League?
       
      Hot on the heels of the wildly successful launch of two new boxed sets, the BattleTech tabletop game comes to Kickstarter for the first time ever to unleash totally remodeled Clan and Inner Sphere ’Mechs on your gaming table. Utilizing the same process that modernized the nine BattleMechs found in those bestselling box sets, each ’Mech has been painstakingly re-imagined, holding to the spirit of their original design while embracing a modern aesthetic. (Click on the images to enlarge.)

      The Clan Invasion box set will add five popular Clan OmniMechs to your arsenal, including the seminal Timber Wolf (Mad Cat). It will also include a bevy of support materials, the rules needed to play Clan technology, all new maps, and more.
       
      Stretch goals will rapidly fill the ranks with more Clan and Inner Sphere ’Mechs boasting all-new looks. The Clan Command Star expansion will include the devastating Dire Wolf (Daishi) and the ever-popular Shadow Cat, while the Clan Attack Star pack will contain the Warhawk (Masakari) and Nova Cat. Meanwhile, the Inner Sphere will take desperate action to try to stave off the invasion. The Inner Sphere Command Lance pack will deploy the beloved Marauder and Archer, while the Warhammer and Phoenix Hawk will hot-drop from the Inner Sphere Battle Lance pack. And there’s more to unlock on both sides!

      Add-ons will include a plethora of exciting new BattleTech merchandise, the latest rulebooks, sourcebooks, boxed sets, and more!

      About
        "The Mrs. had followed her grandmother's gingerbread cookie recipe exactly as she had been taught as a child, however, she was extra cautious not to add too much pixie dust and rum to the bowl of ingredients this time.
      Amid the dry heat of her convection oven the gingerbread dough began to blend with the magical components, and everything was slowly activated by the steady warmth of the preheated oven. 
      When the leavening agents and other alchemical ingredients puffed out the enchanted dough, The Gingerbread Gang began to magically come to life, and the kitchen was suddenly filled with the scent of cinnamon, nutmeg, and something else I didn’t quite recognize."
      -Sugarplum Mary Sparklepants
        Painted & photographed by Shoshie   "Well...whilst she mixed the dry ingredients together...she occasionally muttered something to herself, which I couldn't understand. And amid quite a bit of chuckling, I overheard The Mrs. softly sing some sort of ditty about "Sugar, and spice, and things not quite nice.".  
      I think she may have had a nip, or three, of rum."

          Hello guys, gals, and non-binary pals, 
      Thank you for making the previous War in Christmas Village Kickstarters a success, and welcome back to another crowdfunding venture! 
      We are seeking funds to create our newest batch of tabletop holiday gaming miniatures, as well as, create a packaged war band set of our two most popular snowmen minis, per our backer community request.
      War in Christmas Village tabletop gaming miniatures are perfectly scaled for most popular tabletop role playing games, miniatures war games, railroad hobbyists, Christmas Village displays, and other holiday dioramas. 
      War in Christmas Village tabletop minis are highly detailed, mold injected PVC, arrive unpainted, and are scaled 28mm boot to eye. 
      But, don't take our word for it check out some of the reviews of our prior War in Christmas Village tabletop miniatures releases :)

      Coming Kickstarter from S7 Games.
       
      We are thrilled to announce that the Conan: Savage Legends Kickstarter, launching July 16th, will include three high quality sculpts of Arnold Schwarzenegger in his iconic role as Conan in the 1982 and 1984 films! These officially licensed sculpts are all highly detailed, 32mm miniatures that should be part of any Conan fan's collection!
      That's not the only exciting Conan news we have for you! This week, Rob Stoddard, lead developer of Conan: Savage Legends, sat down with the Fools Daily podcast to talk about the game's design. For those of you who don't know, in Conan: Savage Legends, you take control of a Legend in Robert E. Howard's Hyborian Age as you seek to destroy your enemies in a fast-paced fight to the death. In this 2-4 player arena-style combat miniatures game, you will use powerful relics and plundered riches to engage your foes in glorious combat. Destroy your opponents with sheer might or cunning tactics and prove to your foes why you deserve the title of "Savage Legend."

      TableTop World has been around for a while, they’re based in Poland, and make great looking resin buildings. I have a few in various states of construction and painting although I haven’t purchased anything from them recently.
       
      Their stuff is very pricey though and I expect that to be reflected in the kickstarter.
       
      I am a bit puzzled by their comment about making this in the bigger 28mm-32mm range, as I thought that was the range that their previous buildings fell into.
       
      Anyway, if you’re interested best prepare your wallets now.
