Halloween Dark Fairytales!!!
Wow, it’s that time of the year again!
Time for all things wicked and creepy and a bit monstrous.
But this year, we didn’t want to make the hundredth version of a zombie and ghoul release.
We wanted Halloween with a twist!
And what a better way to do that than to revisit the horror stories of olde: the fairy tales!
So let’s turn things upside down a bit and spice it up with a little bit of badass. Suddenly, the poor heroines who were always the designated victims become serious kick-ass adventuresses (yes, that could be a word, right?).
This is why we turned
Snow White into a Witch Huntress.
Red-Riding Hood into a WereWolf Slayer.
And Alice? Well… into a maniac… but a cute one, though.
And of course, Snow White’s Dwarves couldn’t possibly be your regular good old Grumpy, Doc, etc.
So we turned them into an evil and mean bunch!
Sure, we wanted to have the Card Soldiers from Alice’s travels.
And we figured that mean Tooth Fairies could be a nice addition to our twisted and nightmarish fairy tales.
And as for the scenery, well… Our sculptor in charge just went completely crazy this month, so you’ll have enough to build the most amazingly strange magic forest you’ve ever seen.
Plenty of options to play with
As always, let’s see some of the things you can do with this crazy crew of motley characters.
There are really tons of options here.
From writing an adventure that re-stages fairy tales in your own devious way to using these minis in the most unexpected way...
Someone in the team already told me: “I'm gonna print the Mushroom Warriors and put them in my potted plants!”
And it’s true that many of these models could spice up the Halloween atmosphere in your home!
But let’s focus on more regular gaming uses.
Of course, Red-Riding Hood, Prince F...ing Charming, the Old Witch can be used straight away as PC or NPC characters.
BlueBeard would make a great noble or burgmeister possessed by some evil curse.
Puss’n Boots makes for a unique, full of panache, Tabaxi character.
And the Goblins with their Giant Spider, well… What outdoor adventure cannot be spiced up by a band of crazy hyper-active goblins on their giant spider?
As you can see, we deliberately did not limit ourselves to one or two fairy tales so that each of you could find something likable and usable in this release.
More than anything, since it is the spirit of the season, this release is intended for good fun and we hope that it can jolt your imagination and stir your creative juices :)
