“The Curse of Hollow Hills”  is a miniature project of fantasy heroes & undead monsters for role playing and board game enthusiasts, painters and collectors.

If funded, it will include a collection of more than 35 original sculpts (including future stretch goals), inspired by the most iconic undead creatures of fantasy novels, RPGs & tabletop boardgames.

Someone literally posted in the 'Bones we'd like to see' thread the other day saying they'd like more undead fantasy figures :lol:

I like the look of a few figures in each set, but probably not enough to back any particular set or group except maybe the big undead monsters... Not sure if I'll wind up in for this one or not...

I like the look of the Heroes group. But I don't know that I like it at the price that they're asking. The figures are nice enough, but not really nicer (and not really cheaper) than metal minis from Reaper or Dark Sword or whoever.

 

I'll probably be passing on this project.

They are doing this in resin. The price is certainly lower than a Dark Sword equivalent size human (almost all of those are $10), about as much as Reaper. I think the bulk is a little less than modern Reaper casts, but not much ($6.88 per figure if you get the 8 heroes pack). 

 

Not sure I can say the price is unfair at all, but it isn't a huge Kickstarter bargain. Just a slight one. 

If they hit stretch goals, those look pretty nice for low-level pledges. Which might be a minor concern; a single figure pledge ($7) gets in on the first two stretch goals - hopefully that doesn't cause problems on funding vs ability to deliver.

I don't think it's unfair. (I'm a firm believer in companies pricing their products at whatever the market will bear.) I don't even think it's unreasonably higher than many of the big companies right now. And I rather like their sculpting.

 

I just don't think the value is significantly better than that of many other companies that are already on the market and whose products I can order today. And while I like their sculpting, I don't love their sculpting.

 

Anyone who does love their sculpting and trusts the company to deliver shouldn't feel cheated in any way as long as the product delivered is well represented by the renders. The figures they did for Black Magic Craft and the rest of the Crafter's Guild looked pretty good, though that was a small number of sculpts and a very limited number of castings per sculpt.

 

FWIW, I haven't seen any red flags other than perhaps the size of the offering for a small company, so I wouldn't personally worry too much about delivery.

There’s a handful I’m interested in, but I’m not sure my hobby budget allows for it.

 

Will keep an eye on the project, but a likely pass from me.

I'd be perhaps interested in a 1 figure pledge to check them out. Good stuff but not "must have". I've set a reminder, and will revisit.

I might jump in for a couple or three, the inquisitor, warlock and witch hunter all have their charms. The inquisitor especially looks good, a formidable woman in sensible armour. Of course if she were wearing her helm she'd probably not be sporting such a big scar.

      A little more than 48 hours left for this one, I think it looks really cool.

      Kamigakari: God Hunters is a tabletop role-playing game set in modern-day Japan that combines centuries of Japanese mythology with a modern-day setting and urban fantasy action. You play as a God Hunter, a being wielding supernatural strength, magical abilities, and reality-warping spiritual powers. Your mission is to protect an unsuspecting populace from evil beings known as Aramitama, and to prevent the supernatural from leaking into the public eye.
      Originally, the game was released in Japan by Arclight Games on November 2013 as Legendary Arms RPG Kamigakari, to great popularity. In January 2017, a text-only fan translation appeared on the internet, exposing Kamigakari to the attention of English-speaking RPG fans world wide, and creating a thriving fanbase that continues to grow to this day!
      Serpent Sea Games is a team of experienced RPG translation and development professionals, including the creator of the fan translation, who have licensed Kamigakari from the creators at Arclight Games for publication in English and want to bring the game officially to Western audiences.
        But we need your help to bring this book into existence!
      The Game
      The world of Kamigakari features a distinctly seinen action anime  and style to it. With crazy abilities and flashy powers, it's an over-the-top world where you can battle kaijus, giant robots, gods and demons all under the same umbrella. The system is designed to keep interactions as simple and intuitive as possible, for an easy pick-up-and-play. Kamigakari splits its play up into "scenes", which are short, episodic and will often split the focus onto individual players. It's a different experience compared to western systems that often assume the party is always together, which allows for more varied and engaging character focus and development.
      So what is a God Hunter? A God Hunter is a person who, through one means or another, has gained supernatural powers by possessing a shard of a legendary weapon, relic, suit of armor, or maybe even the crystallized soul of a legendary hero. These powers can be anything from a master of the sword or magic, transforming hero, a living avatar of flame, or the ultimate hacker. Instead of a familiar class-based system, Kamigakari uses its own character generation called Styles, which lets you mix and match your power sets to create a gun-slinging samurai, a chainsaw-wielding magical girl, a hacker who codes his magic into existence, or a hunter who stalks his victims through the shadows.
      And it's not just limited to your class: weapons and gear are utilized under the Arms system, a mechanic where a base weapon is upgraded over time by using materials or spending gold. Two basic swords, in the hands of two different god hunters, can end up very different weapons after extensive modification!
      An average God Hunter on a normal day. Does being a God Hunter mean that you hunt gods? Of course it does! With concepts rooted in Shintoism and traditional Japanese folklore, a God Hunter is tasked with tracking down dangerous beings known as Aramitama - a dark god that is born and grows in power by devouring the souls of its victims. Aramitama come in many forms - from recognizable Japanese icons like oni and tengu, mythical beings like the Pegasus or Griffin, to eldritch monstrosities made of gnashing teeth and glowing orbs. Upon defeating an Aramitama, God Hunters can use their remains to create stronger Regalia - magical weapons and equipment, in order to face even even more powerful Aramitama. It's not just a fun gameplay loop, either: These creatures threaten the sanctity of innocents and the world in their lust to reach their ultimate form, the Avatar of Ruin, a true god of destruction capable of ending the world. It's up to the God Hunters to prevent that!
      An Aramitama awakens. Kamigakari utilizes the unique Numen Dice pool. Numen Dice are resource wherein you roll a set of dice and use it to pay for abilities or change the outcome of a roll. There's many ways change, swap and spend dice. Players must be careful how they manage their Numen Pool to both survive the battle and save the perfect set of Numen Dice to activate their ultimate abilities!
      We'd like to support this game far into the future, and plan on translating and releasing supplements if financially viable. Arclight Games has also requested the creation of original content exclusive to the western release, but that can probably wait until we have a few expansion books finished, we're only mentioning it now in the interests of full transparency.

      and much more. You can also get character models and army units à la carte   (that's what I'm going to do). I backed his halflings and was extremely happy with what I received.

      A gang of ten 28mm bandits, thugs and ruffians for all of your fantasy miniature games.
       

       
      Already funded in less than 2 hours.
       
      I really like what Midlam generally does and I happen to need bandits, so i’m probably going to get them all 10 (well, 11 as they always add another mini as a stretch goal). They also allow people to get 9 other bandits from their range as an add-on.
