The hills are alive with the sound of Vampires…

In the Heart of Africa we saw Solomon Kane begin his African Adventures. Now he’s back for more, and this time it’s Vampires! These aren’t the Bela Lugosi type of Transylvanian blood-sucker though; they have an African twist which gives a unique challenge for our hero. Are you willing to stand beside Kane as he confronts these shape-shifting, night-stalking foes?  

This new add-on includes two new Adventures based on the works of Robert E Howard: The Hills of the Dead, and The Moon of Skulls. It comes with all the new minis, cards, and tiles you need to journey across the savannah with Solomon Kane, and fight alongside him Against the Vampires!  

HILLS OF THE DEAD

Solomon Kane trades the jungles of the western coast for Africa’s eastern savannah. He carries a musket to deal with dangerous game, and a strange, cat-headed staff, inscribed with incomprehensible glyphs, given him by N’Longa. Little does Kane know it, but the staff will prove every inch as useful a weapon as the musket, against the horrors infesting the Hills of the Dead.

In this adventure undertake exciting dream quests with the necromancer N’Longa, and earn an artefact of colossal power and antiquity. Save the young woman, Zunna from deadly, serpent-aspected vampires that cannot be harmed by mortal weapons. In the final battle, protect N’Longa from the horde while he weaves a powerful spell to take control of the very forces of nature, then defeat the undead and raze their city.  

Vampires!

THE MOON OF THE SKULLS

Solomon Kane’s African adventure ends here. Discarding everything he cannot take with him at the foot of a steep cliff, Kane climbs through the night to reach a hidden plateau. Somewhere on the plateau is the entrance to Nekari, the Vampire Queen’s realm, wherein lies what he has scoured the continent for decades to find.

In The Moon of Skulls enter Nekari’s subterranean city, and outwit and defeat her Negari warriors to rescue the slave, Marylin. Confront Nekari herself, and speak truth to her power. Find the secret passages leading to the prison of the last Atlantean Priest, and learn from him the history of Nakari’s realm and how to defeat her. Finally escape the city with Marylin on the Moon of Skulls, before the High Priest performs his ritual to wed her to The Master.

As always, if you are interested in any of our add-ons, simply click on the green “manage your pledge” button near the top of the page. Then increase your total by the amount of any add-ons you wish to include in your pledge. So, if you have a Puritan pledge ($110) and want to add the Against the Vampires ($45), you would increase your total to $155. If you decide to add Heart of Africa later ($55), simply click on the green “manage your pledge” button again, and add that amount to your total. You can change your pledge as many times as you want while the campaign is running.  

Note that during the campaign there is no way for you to tell us what the money you pledge is actually for, so don’t worry about that now. Instead, after the Kickstarter is over we will send you a “pledge manager”. This allows you to tell us exactly how you want to allocate your pledge, which add-ons you would like, how many core boxes, and (most importantly) where we need to send it all!

      @jazzmatazz - they will show the all-in pledge once all add-ons have been revealed (much closer to the end of the campaign). Right now, all we know is that the all-in price will be around $300-$350.

      When can we expect the all in discount deal?
      I love Vampires und Zombies :-)
      I am really waiting for a good gameplay video with more then just shadow boxing on the board.

      @Boufelaas, normal sur Kickstater on ne peut pas choisir précisement les add-on que l'on souhaite, il suffit de choisir "Gérer mon engagement" et ajouter au montant de ton pledge le montant des add-ons que tu souhaites.
      Lors du pledge manager tu pourras choisir précisement comment tu souhaites répartir le montant que tu as dépensé sur Kickstarter.

      J'aimerai beaucoup me faire plaisir en prenant les deux add-on mais je ne trouve aucun onglets pour les sélectionner, comme je ne suis pas rompue avec Kickstarter je me demande si c'est normal et que la possibilité de pledger apparait ultérieurement :)

      @Crazy Celt - Read the story. The vultures are exactly the way they need to be.

      @Corey - Also a spoiler,

      but there's eight 'regular' vampires among these miniatures. Four of them aren't doing so good.

      @Corey - Nakari is described as 'the vampire queen' and, well, when you read the story you'll see why.

      Okay, this is awesome. No lion though? The snake is a masterpiece, you guys keep topping yourselves. can't decide if this one is better than Python, but it certainly isn't a slouch!

      Now of course you have me really scratching my head over what you're doing with 'Red Shadows'. I thought for sure 'The Moon of Skulls' would be the one to get the epic treatment and stand all on its own.

      @Corey Hastings - one of the sneaky things about these Vampires is that they shapeshift, so you can't always tell what they look like :)

      @partenopei
      Right, I get that. My point is the expansion is called Against the Vampires, but there are only 4 vampire miniatures. There are twice as many warriors alone. Are those warriors actually vampires? I am asking because I really do not know the lore, but I am slowly trying to learn it through this campaign.

      We will have card sleeves in the Pledge Manager :)

      For your next add-on I suggest card sleeves for theirs fanatics. It might give the campaign a huge bump.

      I am confused... Against the Vampires only has 4 out of the 27 miniatures being a vampire? Or am I missing something?

      Phenomenal! I think the SK minis are my favorite board game minis in any game yet, and I have backed quite a few KS. I will likely use them for wargaming other systems as well. Added immediately after I got the email! If the remainder of the add ons are this good I will need them all...

      @Torborg, I would go with the vulture victim being impaled on a stake; seems right with vampires supposed to have come from Vlad the Impaler. Besides, I think it would look cool!

    25. Rob Perry

      First of all this looks great! But I wish I could get the game and play it a bit, before having to decide if I want to get the expansions.

    26. Sean "TheShellFace" on

      also, beautiful add-on, great minis as well as some interesting sounding stories... also multi-purpose minis! as that snake mini will definitely be seeing some crossover with HB for me :D

    27. Sean "TheShellFace" on

      pretty sure it was 650 cards in the core puritan pledge... so 650 base game +350 heart of africa +350 against the vampires +80 right hand of doom = 1430 all-in :O

      Beautifull. It's possible to add size of this figs in KS page ? Thanks

    30. Brent Hillier on

      @partenopei We're well past 1k cards with both addons.

    31. Torborg on

      More interesting add-on than the previous. A bit ethno-clichee, but I guess that's simply the world view of the author. Snake is great.
      The vulture victim should be tied to some scaffold or tree or so, though. No way any dead body would be able to hold this posture and vultures don't touch anything that is still alive. So adding some dead tree could be more than just nice scenery.

      @John B

      there must be 1,000+ cards by now

      Someone rebrand this as a card game with miniatures. Please. I know it’s probably minis that get people to back it, but wow are there a lot of cards in this game!

      @Qumad, it's just as big and $10 cheaper than previous add-on. They're not going to just give you stuff for free.

      Great add-on, by the way!!!
