As massive fans of Ben Newman's art, we thought how cool it would be to make collectable 75mm miniatures based on his art; so, we talked to Ben about it and, being the groovy guy that he is, he agreed!

We wanted to start with The Matador.

Signed print available.

Sculpted in Z-brush and then 3D printed, we have some master-casts, but need your help to bring it into production.

We've got Ben to sign some of the 5x7 inch/18x13cm Giclee prints on 100% acid-free archival paper. The same excellent quality as the full-size prints. We only have a few and they are available with the figures as compleate pledeges.

Want to see more of Ben's cool stuff, click here.

But that's not all, everyone who backs us will get a 10% discount code to use in Ben's shop, cool eh?

Well, yes, thank you for asking.

We'd love to make more of Ben's art into miniatures, so, for every £500 that is pledged after we've funded, we'll make another figure, that figure will then be available as an add-on.

We are busy sculpting these now and will show pics as soon as we can!

ADD-ONS:

 

So, now we have started to unlock add-ons, here's how it works.

You choose the add-ons you want and increase your pledge by that amount. 

For example, if you wanted to add Handle with care, you'd increase your pledge by £35, if you wanted two Civil Disobedience in pre-made/painted bronze, you's add £100. To add and extra Matador it's £35 etc.

If you pledge at the £5 Support us level and add anything on, we will contact you at the end of the campaign with details of the postage cost.

Simple right?

Please help us make this happen, the art is amazing, the figures are/will be amazing.

Shipping

We will be shipping to our international backers using a standard untracked service, we will be obtaining a proof of postage, but once they are in the postal system, they are on their own. We will give you the option of upgrading to a tracked/signed for service (where available) at the end of the campaign.

UK orders will be sent 2nd class signed for.

Share/post/reblog and tweet away, we really want to make that Nun...

Risks and challenges

We have splashed out on the render and on the 3D print, we even have a resin master, we now, having spent all our cash, now need to pay for the resin production molds and the figures themselves.
We already have a very fine caster, ready and waiting, so, unless the zompocalypse happens, or Brexit triggers societies breakdown, we are all good.
We are a UK based company and will be posting from the UK.
