Kickstarter Zealot Miniatures & Manorhouse Workshop Terrain # 2

Hi to everyone!

We are now continuing to present the new miniatures of Zealot’s Miniatures Kickstarter on our terrain kits.
After showing them on our 3D Bases, we are now presenting them on our Forgotten Halls walls.
We are also using this occasion to show you our definitive version of our dynamic floors.
But we will speak about them in our next article.

Those Zealot Miniatures, like we said in our first article, remember us of the old-school design of the 80’s, but with quite a modern touch.
The following 10 miniatures (pictures taken from the Kickstarter page) indeed remind us a bit about the HeroQuest heroes.

So a dungeon is a perfect set-up to make them shine in their whole splendor.

Of course, an image is worth more than a thousand words, so give you more images to look at and share to you the link where you will be able to follow the last days of the Zealot Miniatures Kickstarter.

Cheers from Lorenzo & David.

Kickstarter Zealot Miniatures & Manorhouse Workshop Terrain!

Hi to everyone,

As promised, we are now showing you an article dedicated to the collaboration with another company we hold dear.
We are talking about the excellent pieces of Zealot Miniatures.
We did receive last week a package from the UK and inside were 8 gorgeous miniatures, cast in resin.
David and I were impressed by the quality of the product, even though this is nothing new, coming from Zealot.
In the past, we already did a collaboration with them showing their spectacular dungeons goodies of their first Kickstarter (Twisted Catacombs), teaming them up with our rooms of our “Forgotten Halls” project.

Let’s get more into specifics: those 8 miniatures Zealot send us are related to a new Kickstarter, already under way, about fantasy miniatures for dungeons.
Unlike their precedent 2 Kickstarters, the stamps are not made by computer digitally but by hand, by the sculptor “Boris Woloszyn”.
Well … let’s just say that looking at those miniatures brought me back to the 80’s, but with a way more clean and modern look, which definitively catches the eye.
Even the production options the Kickstarter gives you is a wink to the past: you can choose the miniatures to be cast in White Metal (classic but old-style), in standard Resin, or Premium Resin (last-generation resin very resistant and still quite flexible).

As soon as we received the miniatures we couldn’t resist and thus placed them on one of our “3D Bases”.
The overall result is just great, they do fit perfectly!
We are sure Zealot’s new Kickstarter will be yet another success.

To know more about it go directly on the Kickstarter page of Zealot Miniatures.

Cheers from Lorenzo & David

Here we go again!

Hi to everyone.
It’s been nearly a year I didn’t publish anything or give any news.
I must admit 2017 and a good part of 2018 was quite harsh, and I can say, even dramatic, for me.
I don’t want however to bore you with tedious explanations.
Now, we’re at the start of October and I can say that these last 2 years are behind me, with a somewhat positive outcome.
I am not speaking of the overall’s company outcome, but the health one.
I never lost my positive thinking, which allowed me in the past to overcome many difficulties.
So to happy thinking and to excellent surgeons it is!
In this year of silence even the work helped me a lot.
It allowed me to go forward and project a lot of cool stuff we will publish in the future.
Keep your mind busy is the best of medicines, I can assure you.
The next medicine is keep in contact with people.
And indeed the first article we will write again is dedicated to a long-time collaboration which has been going on for years now.
Big thanks to all of you who follow my blog, and to all who were close to me in this last difficult period.

Until next, Lorenzo.

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!

We move to new stand “H122” in Essen!!!

Hello everyone.

David from Essen informs us, that from Stand J118 moved
at the new stand H122 always in Hall 6.

Definitely a better stand. 🙂

For the lucky ones who are in Essen, they will be able to see and talk to David about the Forgotten Halls project.

For all the others, a couple of images quickly sent by David.
Many other pictures still in the coming days

All the best. Lorenzo

3D Bases: worked by backers!

Hi everyone!
Today we want to show you some painted made by our backers on our Kickstarter “3D Bases”

The first link is a tutorial made about how to paint and give some finishing touches to our Stone slabs and Transitions C/R bases.
It’s made by JerzyK on the blog chestofcolors.com
Excellent painting, really, and nicely explained.

The next link is also an article of JerzyK, about a more complex 3D base. He is indeed working on the Broken Column, which isn’t more or less flat like the previous bases, but with quite a tridimensional relief and landscape.
Even here, Jerzy manages to explain very smoothly and nicely how to paint it.

Thanks to Jerzy for sharing this very well done work with us!

The last image is about a picture posted on our 3D Bases Facebook page by Ulrich Ilg, another backer.

We must say we are also very impressed with the result, he pained and added quite some stuff on the whole Cloister section of the Abbey.
Excellent work indeed!

Don’t hesitate to post other pictures and tutorials about your work on our 3D Bases!
We love them and can’t wait to see more.
Thanks in advance for all your love!

Until next, Lorenzo & David

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.
