Hi everybody,
I'm sorry to bother you but I've got a doubt...
I bought from ebay the box named "Huntsman Pack" [GUF-KS01] with all the minis, cards etc...
Inside there are also some NPCs without their cards. I've read on another thread that the cards for those NPCs are inside the NPC-1 box

https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/1590177/huntsman-pack-and-n...

Now my question is:
If I buy from a shop the NPC1 box (so it's not the NPC-1 box that was given with the Kickstarter pledge), will I also have the cards for the Huntsman NPCs?

There are no NPC cards for specific sculpts. So any set of NPC cards will do for the any NPCs.

But I've seen online an image with different "special abilities" for the NPCs...



Where can I read these abilities? I thought they were on some kind of cards but now I'm wondering if they are on the NPCs rulebook

The cards are not model specific and there are no model specific abilities.

Far as I can tell just stock promotional art.

that looks to be a houserule indeed.

normally the npcs only come with spawn cards and their general rule is that players can collect the npc models as they kill them, and when you have a set of 5 different models can exchange them for 1 unused vault item of your choice from those not in the game. for therest they act as standard zombies (and will activate on extra activations of standard zombies).

It's in the picture he posted. It's in Spanish and you need to zoom in a lot to read it, but each NPC in the picture has a specific rule written next to it. For example, the noble says it spawns with a fatty and a walker, the executioner says it does two points of damage, the bard can't be hurt by melee weapons etc.

My guess is that somebody in a Spanish speaking country though it would be fun to have individual abilities for each NPC - so yes, it's a fan made variant, not an official rule.

Thanks for pointing that out. I was totally missing it.

yea, that is housebrew..
I cant remember who, but someone here actualy made those. I`m sure if you look into file for this game you would find the DL file.

otherwise, you can rest in peace. if u get the npc1 box you would have the cards u need. nothing is specific to the sculpt. Many of us houserule the npc, bc in my opinion their rules are MEH! but if u have no issue with that, NPC box (1 or 2) should do

Please continue with the translations, it would be kinda fun to add this variant to my games. I don't know spanish well enough to squint out the letters to use an online translator.
