A better Silas! My god! I wonder if there is anything to make the game more difficult when you play with an ultimate survivor?
@Belisarius. No, spearhead is Mad Max Fury Road. That's why the JS update with him quoted the movie "beautiful day".
Whoops, meant What a lovely stretch goal, playing off What a lovely day from the movie.
Sila's left leg is wrong. The giant is awesome :D
I'm not interested in any of the new sculpts, except Silas with a bow. I would like CMON to comment on their reasoning for the introduction of "ultimate survivors" and how this will impact game balance. Without seeing some of the survivor cards to see how this will play out I can only guess the impact will slant the balance towards the survivors. I think there are better ways to adjust game balance than this (spawn deck being the best, IMO).
+1 to fix the floating armour over his cloak on Silas' left leg.
The giant is an interesting new concept. Really liking it. I'd agree with others that the mini should be looking down a bit. Also, the giant's mini looks much better than the artwork IMHO.
I'll go in for the Ulitimates as I like the original cast from BP. Zombicide is pretty customizable when it comes to increasing difficulty. It's all about how you configure the spawn deck. Nice to have new versions of the originals that can handle a tougher game.
Totally awesome. Love the giant and the ultimate survivors. I really disagree with the whole head tilt thing. He is looking ahead and gonna throw Klom into the middle of a swarm... again.
We've already got several ultimate survivors in SGs. And several that aren't that are OP anyway.
Do the Ultimate Survivors come with their weapons and armors cards as show in the mini and pictures?
Please, please include them if not!
Another +1 to fix the armor on Silas' left leg.
Really like this add on hope the mini's hold the detail and Ann actually has a face this time. Hope there are some cool equipment cards thrown in to match their gear as well. Love the giant hope there are more like this before the campaign ends other races are one of the things I've been hoping for the whole time.
+1 fix Silas' leg please.
On second glance, Giant's head is way better on art than in sculpture.
In model looks just like normal human head.
It does not need proportionally bigger brain. Can you please make it a bit more like the in drawing- where he has different head proportions?
And also Giant's beard and face are way better in drawing than sculpture.
Heroes sculpts are awesome!! The giant is great, i agree with the rules propostions (can t enter in rooms)
@Zelko : +1 for the Giant head, way better in the artwork
and +1 to change this weird Silas leg ????!!!
$30 for 6 survivors from the BP? wow, i can get a brand new complete board game for that amount! Pass... I will just use my original ones.
Are we going to get the ultimate survivor cards like in modern?
I don't like the head of the giant model, looks better in the art
Is this "Kickstarter Exclusive set of Black Plague Ultimate Survivors" for "Zombicide: Green Horde", for "Zombicide: Black Plague" or for both?
Can you please stop showing your mini on a different visuel plane. You did the same for MD and some on the minis looks smaller than it should be at the end.. You don't need to do that. Just my 2 cents
You can mix everything with everything. You can play GH with the Wulfsburg expension. You can play a BP mission with zombie orcs etc. etc.
Those Ultimates look amazing, and the giant too. So hyped for this.
First line of the Kickstarter: "Zombicide: Green Horde is a cooperative board game for 1 to 6 players that is both a standalone game, and fully compatible with Zombicide: Black Plague and its expansions! "
So the Ultimates can be used with either. But since the foes (and the terrain) in GH are tougher, the Ultimate Survivors will probably fit in better there. Z-cide is a sandbox game at it's core. So you could always field a smaller team of Ultimates for a greater challenge.
I am very concerned: How will all those extra rules be reminded or presented for the giant???
Was it mentioned anywhere if the Ultimate survivor box is going to come with experience cards and rules insert for developing characters from mission to mission like came with the modern Zombicide ultimate survivors box?
@ Thiago, @ Michael,
Love the Ultimate Survivors, but Ultimate Survivors need Ultimate Gear. In the story for Samson it even says he's been making equipment for them. Please include an item, or even a set of items, that correspond to the individual heroes. For example:
Nelly - A flaming sword and special armor
Ann - Holy armor and a sanctified blade
Clovis - A ice blade - or a pair of them, or a blade and shield
Samson - Mithril armor and a hammer
Silas - An elvish great bow and special quiver/arrows
Baldric - An uber spell/enchantment and staff
Would love this treatment for the ZBP survivors. And it would make them even more "special" and unique. I think it would turn this pack into a must buy for every backer.
Love what you've done so far.
And +1 Corpse Cart

I think it is interesting how we all see the same picture and have such different reactions/thoughts. I felt the sculpt was 100% better than the drawing, including the head. Just goes to show how even among a group that ha shared interest, we still have various opinions. :-)
Nitpicking here bit why is Silas' kneepad visible through the cloth on his left leg?
Aside from the ultimate minis and their cards is there anything else for this add on? Equipment cards for example. Its a tad expensive otherwise. There are already a lot of survivors as it is. These figs should also have awesome gear to match.
I have one question regarding Finartons ability to see and be seen over hedges. Does this work for Kirag and Thorg too, actually only for Kirag, since he is on top of Thorg that he actually should be able to see over hedges too.
I take it the giant is a tribute to the deceased actor from Game of Thrones who played the giant at the wall both names begin fin (Neil fingleton).
I'm kinda of conflicted by the Uktimate Survivors. I love the idea and like most of the artwork concepts - I actually like the sculpts better than the art in pretty much every case. However, I really am not keen on Nelly. Her short skirt looks ludicrous and I don't get the rapier - I love her original model and it's two handed sword.. I wished they'd given her a massive broad sword, like Amri in Pathfinder. I actually dislike her so much that it's put me off the whole box (utterly silly, I know). I should just get it and sell her figure...
Those epic survivors have just added another $30 to my pledge they look fantastic. Love the idea of campaign mode and it works to a degree only issue I have is once my survivors (in the games I play) get some good gear and get there second orange skill the horde is almost a walk over, even multiple abominations (with careful planning and good dice) fear our party. Now with Green Horde things look dire once again.
Smart phone typo their not there!
Please fix Silas' leg. Thank you!
+1 Change Sila's left leg, it's awful !
+1 Seing Survivors' Id cards
next stretch goal or optional buy, the update to Ultimate Survivors of all the survivors of Black Plague, Wulfusburf, guest boxes and kickstart exclusive thanks
I intended the update of the ID cards
The magic swirl on Ultimate Baldric's left hand is not needed - at least IMHO. Even if you are willing to make it more dynamic, I prefer when this kind of effect is left to imagination...
reading Silas' new description i believe the next BP is going to use elves.
Do the ultimate survivors come along with experience cards like in classic zombicide ???
Please rethink Nelly, the actual design (sexist high heels and jartelle) is just sexist and completely off with the game.
and +1 about the left leg of Silas
PS: I love the giant :)
Can we please have some more information on the ultimate survivors box. Will there be equipment cards? How will the gameplay differ from the original versions of the characters? I need to know a bit more before I will pay $30 extra.
What I still want to know is if the Ultimate Survivors box will bring an experience deck or, at least, the exact content of the box.
also interested in more info on the urvivors pack
any word on the contents of the survivor box? Does it contain more trays? equipment cards? $30 is a LOT if it's just 5 minis and 5 cards.
Nelly it's great, shut the fuck up boring people.
Yes Nelly is great, probably my favorite of the bunch
