Bloodborne : 24 hour EB


Recommended Posts

I'm interested because of its card-based game system, which includes upgrading your character, and custom weapons.

Scroll down to the Rulebook section, for the overviews of the game!

 

So far, including the unlocks, the game has 50+ miniatures.

I am with you guys. When I got the two big shipping boxes, I was asking myself why I backed this. It is going to take up too much space and the theme is too scary fir my 8 yo. Not the least of which I

It's because of the KS exclusive expansions that I dropped.  In my opinion those expansions are not good value.  At $25 each I would think they are reasonable, but certainly not at $40.  And I actuall

No, we've got a house ... it only maybe prolongs the time in which you can say "I still have space" ... but the outcome is inevitably the same.

Base pledge has about 85 miniatures, most of them large sized for your nightmare fuel needs.

Also, first expansion announced. Kinda pricey compared to the base pledge.

Didn't know Bloodborne had mosh pits.

Typically IF expansions make it to retail they'll be cheaper than KS with CMON project

 

but it's a gamble as if not enough people bit during the KS they may decide not to go to retail with it at all  (especially if you're outside the US where even if they do go to retail you may not be able to get hold of them)

That one is marked KS exclusive, so not much of a chance it will be cheap at retail.

I never played the video game, what is it like?

 

You play a "hunter" in a world that's dark gothic horror mixed with lovecraft.. Blood can be used to make powerful healing medicines.. and many people have become afflicted with blood diseases that transform them into Beasts, which are the creatures you're hunting..

 

There's a lot of exploration and retreading areas, trying to find the best way to survive your way through them.. In souls games, if you kill a friendly NPC, they tend to stay dead.. same with bosses.. Normal monsters revive themselves every time you stop at a resting point (usually marked by lamps) and recover your health.. You there's a leveling system and you gain experience points for killing monsters.. The combat can be difficult at times, you can use bells to summon other players to help you fight though..  (I think this comes at a risk of allowing hostile players entering your world to fight you.. it's been a while so I might be mistaken on that..)

I don't mind if it takes me three years to complete a video game. I mind if it takes three years to *get* a boardgame! :lol:

 

Bloodborne is a Japanese take on Gothic horror (and, as Dwapook said, Lovecraft), so it's not surprising that the monsters and therefore the miniatures are... different. ^_^

 

Like... the game has "messengers" who are small diminutive little guys who deliver stuff. Maybe in another videogame, they'd look like familiars, or faceless constructs. But in Bloodborne?

Well, at least you can hide their faces.

And, hey, who doesn't want to look pretty every once in awhile.

I picked up the Bones Dreadmere expansion, so these BB miniatures would fit into the more nightmarish parts of that region.

 

Also, BB has a card-driven combat system that's a change from the usual dice mechanics in dungeoncrawlers and miniatures games.

      A huge 2 for 1 KS!  
      (You get BOTH Humans and Halflings in one project! )
      Bloody Peasants! by Midlam Miniatures — Kickstarter
       
      Story
      "Oh no!  It's an armed agrarian uprising!"
      Toiling in the fields for their feudal overlords, the peasants are equally quick to turn their tools to defending their lands from monstrous invaders or, when pressed to the limit, revolting and overturning cruel and greedy landowners.
      Bloody Peasants!
      A selection of human and halfling farmers in 28mm scale miniatures for all of your fantasy games.
      You can choose from humans, halflings or both!
      The Humans
      A familiar sight in the villages surrounding Midlam.
      The Halflings
      A smaller folk, doing the same jobs as the longshanks.
       
       
       
      It's a Midlam project, so you know what that means;
      Maybe a stretch goal, very possibly an early fulfillment, and absolutely no nonsense.

      I backed his last project (dice towers), and found them well worth what ended up being a long wait to get them. It seemed only right to share, 'cause he makes REALLY PRETTY THINGS. Go look.
