(£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.

1c170e8660361e6a8950804feb4f0254_origina

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!

2f75392e12bffc8f383435212ed34a8f_origina

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! 

2d9f3d53e9b0c91375fb5a1cd5f05409_origina

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.

26bfd3e5c515292eda44174ae242e03f_origina

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. 

b3c479b887421e169a58fc3a20e370d5_origina

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.

Is this a game or are they display pieces?

 

Not really my style but if the minis look as good as the renders then I might be interested.

Those horses look amazing!   Here's hoping at a chance of adding some in from the first... Kind of can't wait to see what else comes of these!

I didn't back the first KS because I found the female heroes a bit... too over the top... or very little on top, so a lot of danger of spillage out on top...  

This Cleric is also lacking in the clothing budget, but at least the pose isn't quite that cheesy. (It's still overly 'heroic' posed, but... )

 

I may back this one.

Okay thanks, now I remember, it was the village of the supermodels.

I didn’t back cause while the renders looked great I wasn’t sure how well they’d translate to actual physical models. I wanted to see more physical minis.

Plus I was wary of why they were offering so many sizes when they stated that their game rules would be written for 32mm minis.

 

And I was disappointed in the lack of variety in the personalities of the female characters.

I find a few of the models rather interesting, like the town crier, the granny or the beggar. I would even be fine with 1-2 "supermodels" per gender in each set. For the female bard it seems in character to be a bit more ... open, and the smith or farmer probably have a lot of muscles due to their trade. But besides that, all the younger characters seem overly cheesy, and not really in the same style as granny, beggar or this new rat catcher.

 

Will definetly be watching though, that wagon set looks great.

      About
      Welcome to the Great Wall draft page – the campaign is not live yet, but we will be gradually adding more and more information about the game here! We are incredibly excited to hear your feedback, so please let us know what you think. If it looks interesting to you - make sure to click the "Notify me on launch" button!
      The Great Wall is a new major board game from Awaken Realms (creators of Nemesis, Tainted Grail, Etherfields and many other acclaimed products). Players will take the roles of generals of an ancient oriental empire who lead the defence against ruthless hordes. You will need to gather allied advisors, manage your workers, recruit armies and, together with other players, raise and defend the Great Wall! As the game progresses, you will often need to co-operate or negotiate with other players, but make no mistake – there can be only one winner!
      This fresh worker (and soldier!) placement game for 1-4 players faces them with many difficult choices and often pushes them to interact with each other. You will be assigning your workers to eleven different locations, such as Tea House, Quarry, Messenger Post, or Barracks, using special Command cards that have additional effects. Production in locations activates ONLY when all their slots are filled, but filling them all by yourself can result in a penalty. On top of that, players can buy overseers who will give additional output every time a location becomes activated. This creates a lot of involving long- and short-term strategies.
       Each player starts with one unique General, characterized by their asymmetric power, as well as the production level. From there, you will further customize your economic engine and fine-tune your strategy by recruiting advisors who provide additional bonuses.
      Eventually, a Wall Defence phase beings, where players place previously build armies on Horde Cards – earning Honor (Victory points) and looting resources from the defeated troops. This requires smart management of three types of units: Archers, Spearmen and Cavalry. Players place these soldiers one by one, playing the Tactics cards that create another layer of interaction.
      Gain meditation by shooting with the Zen Archer, then spend meditation on a Cavalry Squad Leader to move your Cavalry around the battlefield faster, and – finally – finish off by getting extra Honor for each of the Cavalry’s engagements thanks to the Banner Holder. There are endless possibilities for great combos and memorable plays.
      On top of that, your Advisors and General might give your troops extra abilities, such as shooting twice or looting twice the resources!
      All of the above makes the Great Wall one of our most strategically involving designs that will be appreciated by many different groups of players: those who love euro-styled games with their intricate economies and engine-building, those who love over-the-table play, bargaining and negotiations – and finally, those who simply like to wage war on a beautiful map.

      Story
      Who Are Troublemaker Games?
      We  are an established wargames development company who design &  supply plastic, metal and resin miniatures for wargames retail  companies, whose sculptors also have experience doing freelance work for  other companies such as Mantic Games (for whom we sculpted, for  example, their range of 28mm scale plastic terrain kits, as well as various other plastic & resin kits).
      We  have previously run & managed eight other Crowdfunding  Campaigns,  raising a total of £84,048 to deliver plastic and metal  models for the  6mm scale wargame range, Defeat In Detail (1 2 3 4 5), our range of Plastic Wargames Terrain kits (1 2), and our 28mm scale Nuns with Laserguns! (1).
      We  have delivered all the plastic, resin, and metal kits from all seven of our own crowdfunding campaigns to our customers, and all models  (other than some Campaign Exclusive Limited Edition pieces) are now  available for retail  purchase through either Vanguard Miniatures, as  the "Defeat In Detail" and the "Troublemaker Games Plastic Terrain Kits" ranges, or the "Nuns with Laserguns!" range via our own webstore. Vanguard's own Crowdfunder (which we oversaw as Campaign Manager) has itself also been fully delivered.
      Some of our Nuns with Guns (painted) from our previous Kickstarter campaign. What We Need & What You Get
      We have several designs of Post-Technopocalypse Model kits already sculpted, but without a crowdfunding campaign it  would be too expensive for us to afford to put them into production, so  your interest and support at this stage means we can bring these designs to retail... and to your gaming tables!
      As we cross stretch goals we'll be unlocking more model kits, and hopefully adding free bonuses to existing pledges too (we've managed to include free bonus models on  every one of our Crowdfunders to date, and we'd love to continue that tradition!).
      So, this campaign contains rewards for pledging, consisting of:
      28mm Metal Model Kits STL 3d Files Download Packages All miniatures will be supplied unpainted. Scroll onwards to find out more...
      How Do Pledges Work?
      Each Scenery or Model kit in this Kickstarter campaign has a price in British Pounds (£) associated with it.
      To pledge, total up how many of each kit you'd like to pledge for, work out how many Pounds that would cost, and pledge for that total.
      For example, if you would like to pledge for:
       1x Tribal Guardswomen Infantry Squad (£20)  1x Mad Marx (£4) 2x Count Binface (£8)  1x Post-Technopocalypse Town STL Set (£10)  Total: £42
      Then you should select the "Miniatures!" reward, and should pledge £42; You will be prompted for postage and packaging in addition to your basic pledge cost. Once the campaign ends, you will be sent a questionnaire, which will ask you to confirm your chosen combination of model sets.
      If you only want STL digital file sets, select the "STL-only pledge" and pledge the appropriate amount for your chosen combination of STL sets.
      Some of the Stretch Goals that we hope to unlock during this campaign will also have Costs associated with them, whilst others will be free upgrades to existing sets.

      Story
      The amazing worlds of Jim Henson brought to life as officially licensed miniature models for collectors and fans.
       Broken Toad is a UK-based company that has produced accessories and models for display painters since 2014. We are now an official licensee of The Jim Henson Company, using our experience to create an impressive range of miniature models based on both The Dark Crystal and Labyrinth.
      www.brokentoad.co.uk Black Sun Miniatures has been producing a diverse range of high quality resin miniatures since 2015. Black Sun specialise in fantasy and science fiction subjects, designed for painters, modellers and collectors.
      www.blacksunminiatures.co.uk Many factors that have lead us to our love of model sculpture, one of the most influential of these has been the great Jim Henson. We spent much of our youth immersed in the worlds Jim created and are so excited to have been given the opportunity to work with The Jim Henson Company and to create miniature models of our favourite characters.
       Jim was a master visionary and the worlds he created feature rich storylines and complex characters. Our goal is to delight existing fans and introduce these amazing creations to a new generation.

      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/satanicpanic/old-school-multi-part-28mm-hobgoblins-by-satanic-panic?ref=discovery_category_newest
       
      Story
      As with previous Satanic Panic Miniatures releases, we once again try to reimagine a classic 80s Old School range of miniatures, with more variety, but remaining faithful to those classic minis that inspired so many people back in the day.
      Our modular, multi-part approach lets you literally have every figure in your collection be unique.
      With the Hobgoblin range the aim is to use the classic 'Horned Helmet' style, of the 1st edition of a well known tabletop rule set, but to include later troop types for those of you who joined in the fun with 2nd ed or later.
      Martin Buck has worked really hard to create characterful sculpts which are as menacing as they are fun. We want figures to look and feel like warriors.
      Hobgoblins are supposedly nomadic, so the feeling of movement and portability of weapons was a paramount consideration.
      We hope you like what we have come up with and thank backers past and future for showing their appreciation for our efforts.
      This campaign will bring (at least) 10 Hobgoblin bodies, all open handed, and 8 head variants.
