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.

 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

 We have to say a big thanks to Alfonso Prieto and Elias Alonso from Beholder factory for working with us to create this project.

^^ 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.

      The Light and The Dark
      I can't tell you how much I love this band! they've got a week left in this amazing kickstarter, and you should totally go check it out! 
      *****
      From the kickstarter page:
      About
      It’s been over four years since we’ve released an album. That’s about to change. 
       
      The Light is coming 3/20/20.
       
      Here’s the plan: We are going back into the studio with the producer of Carry The Fire, Alex Wong, to record two sister albums that will reflect the dual sides of Delta Rae: The Light and The Dark. The Light will be hopeful, soulful, and sun-kissed and released in Spring 2020. It will include songs like “The Wrong Ocean” and “Any Better Than This.” The Dark will be mysterious, witchy and raw and released soon after (on/before March 2021). We will go on an expansive tour with each record, crafting live experiences beyond just music, to bring these worlds to life for you.
       
      But we need your help. For the past seven years we have been signed to record labels that have helped fund our albums, music videos, photography, and artwork. But as of last month, that has changed. 
       
      We are incredibly excited to announce that we are independent once again. 
       
      And we are humbly asking you to help us make our most ambitious project come to life. We made our first album, Carry The Fire, independently with the help of amazing fans on Kickstarter. Together, we learned just what it takes to make an album. So, here’s where your money will go:
      If we raise $30,000, we make The Light
      $10,000 Production
      $3,000 Auxiliary Musicians (Strings, Horns, etc.)
      $10,000 Mixing
      $2,000 Mastering
      $5,000 Physical Production (CD + Art)
       
      If we raise $60,000, we make The Light and The Dark
       
      And any additional money will mean we can make *MUSIC VIDEOS* and help spread the word about these two albums. 
       
      And this is just the beginning. Moving forward — for the first time in a long time — we will fully control and own the music we release. We can make and share live albums, singles, and protest songs whenever we want. This means more mystical music videos and wildly ambitious creative projects. You will be helping to launch all of this. 
      We know we already owe you all so much. And it means the world to us that you have helped us live this dream and make this art for the last 10 years. We appreciate you all more than you know and don’t ask lightly for your hard-earned money and help. But we also know you have made us a part of your lives and built friendships and community around Delta Rae that transcend anything we could do alone. You are a part of our story — the most important part. 
       
      So let’s have a blast doing this together. Get a big group of friends and host a house party. Pick a song you want to hear us sing. Get psyched for some one-of-a-kind merch. Find the tier that sounds most fun to you. Help spread this campaign so we can make more “Bottom of the River“ and “Dance in The Graveyards”-style epic music videos. 
      Thank you for being a part of this journey, your support and loyalty will help us make this next chapter real. We promise to work harder than ever to build a world of goodness, magic, and feeling through our music. Because you can’t have the light without the dark. And we still carry the fire. 
      Love always.
      Delta Rae

      It's back. From the project page:
       
      " A few years ago, another company successfully launched an Evil Dead 2 board game campaign that was never fulfilled to its backers. This other company collected all of the money and delivered nothing to thousands of Evil Dead 2 fans that participated in their project. Because of this travesty, Jasco Games, in collaboration with Lynnvander Studios, the Evil Dead 2 licensing group, and our other partners have come together to bring Evil Dead 2 The Board Game back from the dead. We're calling this campaign a Heartthrob Campaign. What that means is if this campaign successfully funds, all of the backers of the previous campaign (that we had nothing to do with), will be getting a copy of Evil Dead 2 The Board Game for only the cost of shipping (that's right, free + shipping)."

      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.
