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.

RGFX Kickstarter “Persistent Fog Machine”

Hi everyone!

Our friends at RGFX are revealing more and more of their awesome Persistent Fog Machine, and our collaboration together!
For those reading attentively, MHW and RGFX have been indeed collaborating during the past half-year on this project.
The result was the Dark Crypt, a beautiful building made by MWH which let RGFX’s Fog Machine fit perfectly inside, allowing the fog to roll out from all sides, submerging a whole gaming terrain with ease!

For a more breathtaking look at how the Dark Crypt generates fog, take a look at RGFX’s Teaser video, made on the Dwarven Forge Caverns for more awesomeness.

RGFX has plans to launch their Kickstarter in May 2017, where you will be able to buy their Persistent Fog Machine, with the Dark Crypt…

and their Black Box.

For more information, join their Facebook page!

“Are you ready to get Real ?”

A special thanks to Francesco “Endar” Bellina for the use of his Dwarven Forge Caverns.

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.

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.

Update #6 – Hard Plastic -Flooring up & Zealot Miniatures!!!

Hi to all.

We’ve shown you up to now videos about walls, floors, modularity, inserts, and compatibility.

But what about getting higher ? What about adding floors for a multi-level dungeon or gaming area ?

This is where it gets even more interesting!
We’re using a specific Wall Cover (with pins) on which you can fix your walls, to go higher and higher:

You can also see a balcony, but more especially, our Upper Floors.
Our system of Upper Floors allow you to take them out very easily to be able to keep playing on the lower floors, without having to detach and unbuild all your walls and floors.
It’s playability to its finest, and we wouldn’t set up for less.
And what about the torches ? Will they be available in our Kickstarter ?
Of course!

Those are actually Zealot Miniatures torches.
This company launched a great Kickstarter and has great quality add-ons to fill any building or dungeon.
Their 3D level work is amazing, and who knows, maybe they’ll be designing the Forgotten Halls add-ons and inserts ?

The holes in our pillars/walls can be used to insert anything. Torches and columns is just the start. We have many other surprises in store.
What about indeed Steampunk, Ruins, or Post-Apocaliptic inserts ?
We have already developed them. They will be waiting for you in our Kickstarter.

Regards from Lorenzo and David.

 

Update #02 – Hard Plastic – The innovative modular walls of Forgotten Halls.

Hi to all.

So you’ve seen a (very small, we assure you) sneak peek of Forgotten Halls, with our last video.
The big questions will be “how does FH works ?” and “when will it be available ?”

Let’s start the with the later.
Forgotten Halls will be presented on the Kickstarter platform at the end of 2016, once all 3D bases pledges will have been sent to all our backers.
You understood right, there are just some few months to wait!

Let’s speak now about how Forgotten Hall works. There is a TON of hidden gems in our product, and most are not yet seen.
But we can start with the walls, on this video:

As you see, all of our pillars have round inserts where to connect our dynamic walls (all concepts created by MHW), where other inserts (here you see our columns but torches and much more will be seen) can be added.
From there on, it’s just a question of “flooring up” if you want to make higher walls … be it because you want them higher, or because you want to make a building with multiple floors.
These higher floors will be reachable with an innovative stair system.

Now, again, we’re barely scrapping the surface of what can be done with our walls … Just to give you an example, here is what can be done, with yet another of our ideas, the Wall Inserts, yet another innovative idea of MHW.

The Wall Inserts system

Wall Inserts are walls pieces that insert themselves into existing walls, allowing you to create completely different (and modular) walls with a simple gesture, without having to change and detach the previous existing walls which build up your whole structure.

This gives you two huge benefits:
– It is very good for your wallet: if you have 30 walls with arches, and you want also plains walls, thicker, you don’t need to buy some other 30 more walls. Just buy some wall inserts (only on FH), and you’re good to go!
– plug and play, very speedily: if you have built a big dungeon or castle interior, but want to change some of the walls, you can do it very quickly without have to tear down / detach most of your walls and pillars. Just add a wall insert and you’re done!

Our video shows only the 2 different wall inserts, with amazing results. Imagine what you could do with way more : the possibilities are endless … and they will be.
