Update 18 – Forgotten Halls – New accessories shown at Essen!

Hi to everyone.

Back from Essen, where David presented in a first sneak peak some of the accessories which will be added as Stretch Goals in our next Forgotten Hall KS campaign.
Not everyone could be there however, so we’ve decided to show you what it was about. 🙂

What you will see will allow you to increase tenfold the possibilities and potentialities of your dungeons, buildings, castles, and towers created with our product!!!

We are talking about Stone Stairs.
Now you are surely thinking “but didn’t MHW already showed those in the box Eerie Silence ?”
In a way we did, but the one we’re unveiling now is much more narrow, allowing you to use them even in corridors without blocking the way!
Of course, those new stairs will still allow 25mm wide base miniatures to be put on the steps, without any issue!

This is a simple idea, but with enormous potential.
With a bigger stair, you can go up and down, but if put inside a corridor, you have no choice but to use the stairs.
Here with the more narrow stairs, you can decide if to use the stairs, or proceed forward.
Imagine your soldiers invading a castle and fighting on a corridor, some of them trying to fend off the enemy soldiers coming down from above (from the stairs) while the rest just continue on the side, towards the door at the end of the corridor, where the throne room and the opposing ruler with his king guards awaits.

There are countless uses for this new piece, and we’re sure you’ll find a lot on your own!
More narrow and sleek pieces make up also for an even more beautiful scene.

Of course, to complete the piece, you will need also some new floors and new balustrades.

You can go further …
Just combine big and small stairs, for amazing results!
Here the big stairs are used to create huge pathways while the smaller ones are used to move inside the corridors!

Forgotten Halls and NoLands Comics at Essen!

We kept this a bit under wrap for weeks, but Manorhouse Workshop will be at the Essen Fair (26 October to 29 October)!

We will be presenting our Forgotten Halls project, so that you can see first hand our prototype and also some new exciting pieces that will be unveiled only at Essen!

To illustrate the contents perfectly, nothing’s better than a quick
video, which shows the huge amount of pieces contained in both boxes.

That’s right, all in all, the number of pieces of Beyond the Door &
Eerie Silence number 299!
This is without counting quite a good number of pins to connect safely
and perfectly all our pieces.

For this fair, we will be teaming up with another great company, the NoLands Comics
The NoLands Comics / Manorhouse Workshop booth will be 6J118 in Hall 6.

NoLands Comics is a company present at all major fairs, with their own lines of amazing Fantasy Comics and Roleplaying material.

For Essen, they’re also presenting their first brand new board game, called Total Party Kill!
The creator is none other than my own collaborator (David Destefanis), and he will be there to represent both companies.

Total Party Kill is a fast paced and merciless game, where 2 to 4 players build and level up their parties of Heroes, recruit Mercenaries, use Spells and Artifacts to fight and gain the upper hand on the other players, to explore and conquer dangerous Territories infested with Monsters.

Total Party Kill comes with 4 different faction decks, based on the NoLands comic world, and has a total of 200 cards (+ tokens). All cards can be used in various ways, from generating resources to be played normally on table.

See you at Essen!

Update 15 – F.H. – Hard Plastic – Beyond the Door & Eerie Silence

Hi to everyone!

It’s been a while since last update. We have been working a lot on the 3D Bases project, but also have news about Forgotten Halls, so here we are.

Let’s start with some announcement that will make you rejoice.
We are giving you a glimpse of the 2 boxes that will be revealed on our next KS.

Starter Pack – Beyond the Door
Expansion Pack – Eerie Silence

Graphic design by: Fabio “Jacknife” Paulotto

Yes, you will have both available, right from the start. Isn’t it great ?

In our Base Set “Beyond the Door” you will be able to create corridors and rooms with our fully modular and Dynamic Walls, which can be used to build both indoor settings and outdoor buildings (while keeping full playability on the inside).

And of course, thanks to our Dynamic Floors, you will be able to build from the start of the Kickstarter huge dungeons with sewers and canals.

With the Expansion Set “Eerie Silence” you will move further, on the upper floors.
You will find inside this box new Dynamic Walls, and new Double Face floors, Stairs, and balustrades to create parapets or bridges, all the while keeping the same indoor/outdoor potentialities and playability.

With the two boxes togethers, you will be able to let your imagination run wild: underground places, corridors, rooms, upper and lower floors, platforms and bridges, towers, fortified walls, ancient mansions and castles.
Amazing, and this is just the beginning.

Just imagine all you will be able to obtain with the passing days on the Kickstarter.
But that will be just your imagination, because we can’t reveal you everything, we would spoil the surprise. And there are great, amazing surprises waiting.

This is all for today.
You might be asking yourself “Great, 2 boxes, but how much do they cost, what do they contain, when is the KS starting, what will be the Goal ?”
All those informations will be revealed later on on the upcoming weeks.
Stay tuned on our blog for more info!

Until next, Lorenzo and David.

Update 14 – F.H. – Hard Plastic – Interior, stairs, and balconies

Hi everyone,

In the past articles we did create with our FH walls buildings, underground sewers and dungeons.
Now it’s time to present the interior of a villa, with its main hall.
It is composed of multiple stairs which brings you to the upper balconies.
The architecture that is given birth in this manner is just breath-taking.

The feeling is the one of entering for real an important, aristocratic, mansion.
But at the same time, there is a foreboding feeling … so many stairs, where do they lead ?
What is hidden on the upper floors ?
You can already imagine the dark anguish which will enwrap the heroes as they set foot in this mansion.

Update 13 – F.H. – Hard Plastic – Back to the… Dynamic Floors & Sewers

Hi everyone!

After several articles about the walls of Forgotten Halls, which allows to build and create an infinity of amazing buildings, we are back to one of the most interesting feature of our project: our Dynamic Floors.

Our Dynamic Floors can be modified and customized in many different ways, by adding and taking out some Floor Inserts.

In Forgotten Halls, our Dynamic Floors have a cross-section, with 3 different Modular inserts, which can be added/taken out, and moved to create different results.

This is just one of the multiple solution reachable with Forgotten Halls.

But let’s go back to the Dungeon.
This dungeon has a lot of modularity. Since our walls are not pinned to the floors, you can put them wherever you want, creating even very narrow corridors, or rooms of various sizes.
The length of the corridors and the size of the rooms is up to you!
All of the modularity doesn’t take away anything of the aesthetics, allowing you to immerge yourself and your miniatures in a beautiful gaming experience.

Let’s now give space to the pictures and the video.

RGFX collaboration: The Dark Crypt (Fog Tower)

Hi everyone,

The collaboration between RGFX and Manorhouse Workshop created its first wonder!
An architectural building made by MHW, with the scope of hiding the Fog Machine created by RGFX.
This Fog Machine will allow gaming terrains and dioramas to get an amazing Fog effect to bring the atmosphere to a whole new different level, as you can see on our videos and pictures!

The Dark Crypt can be used on its own, or be combined with other existing buildings of various manufacturers.
Here, we created a gaming terrain made of 4 Stone Slabs (3D Bases) for the base, on which we added walls of Forgotten Halls for completing the structure, creating a perfect result for the Dark Crypt hosting the Fog Machine.
Of course, while we did use our MHW buildings for such a terrain, nothing prevents your own terrains from other manufacturers.

The atmosphere thus generated with RGFX’s Fog Machine is eerie and ghostly.
Can you imagine a whole gaming session clouded in fog and darkness ?
We can.

Until next,

Update 12 – F.H. – Hard Plastic – You can use Forgotten Halls on any existing terrain!

Hi everyone!

In our previous article we showed you how you can use Forgotten Halls to create rooms, corridors, towers, etc, without using our Dynamic Floors of 100x100x10mm. It was however with a “3D Bases” Stone Slabs floor, which creates a perfect floor for our building, and thus, you didn’t need to use any of our FH floors, for obvious reasons.
However, we are showing you now how you can use any kind of terrain already in your possession and still use perfectly our FH range.

Let’s use indeed a terrain base, like our “Rough Terrain – 3D Bases”. This terrain represents a mix of earth, little stones, etc classical to outdoors terrains.
With this terrain, you can’t use add apparently our FH walls to create a building, since you would be missing the stone floor and it wouldn’t look as good as it should.
However, there is a very easy solution “built-in FH”, which we are showing you now. 🙂

This step by step images show you how to create a perfect stone floor for the FH building, while keeping the overall result perfect.
The floors we are using are already existing in FH, and fit perfectly our structures.
We are also adding our covers under our walls, this time, to make the floors underneath fit perfectly. The same covers are added on the top of the walls to build up more floors, here, about the tower.

The overall result, as you can see, is great!
We have a full tower with its ground floor fully integrated with the Rough Terrain used as base.
We could continue, with the same floors, to build more floors of the same tower, or build another structure nearby. It’s just one of the multiple, and endless, potentialities of our FH modular system.

Update 11 – Forgotten Halls – Hard Plastic – Fortified Terrace

Hi to everyone!
Let’s continue with more accessories to widen even more the potentialities of our Forgotten Halls project.

To see all the videos dedicated to our Forgotten Halls project, and being kept updated about them, go and subscribe to our YouTube channel

Let’s start from the terrace that we did present during last article.
We did add 2 towers to this structure, connected between them with a small overhead bridge.
You can see how the stairs give a great dynamism to the whole, while the towers give a robust show of strength to the whole structure.

On this other building, we modified everything making it a real sturdy fortress.
The 2 towers are still there but we took out the stairs bringing up to the terrace, and made the walls of the main building much more sturdier thanks to our “Dynamic External Walls”.
And this is just a single floor building. Imagine what you could create with a taller structure, with more floors … a unique and huge fortress.

Let’s speak about our “Dynamic External Walls”.
This simple yet elegant MHW idea allows to create endless potentialities for your building creations, without needing to invest a lot of money to buy hundreds of different walls, which then take also a lot of place when you need to stock them around.
With our solution, with just the Walls of our Base Set, you can add any kind of our Dynamic External Walls to create a various number of different walls of your liking.

We’re just scratching the surface here of the possibilities, since you can combine the main Dynamic Walls (inside the walls) with the External ones to create wonderful results, giving depth and details, in different ways, to your structure.

Of course, our external dynamic walls are available on both format (60x56x4mm. and 100x56x4mm.).

This is just the beginning.
