Currently Available Pledges and Addons
Please note that the original 7 miniatures are also available as add-ons priced at £8 each.
The Pride of Lion Tower Miniatures
I have been sculpting my own range of figures to accompany a tabletop game that I have been working on, and also to serve as high quality Role Play miniatures for gaming and miniature enthusiasts.
The figures are 32mm scale, and this wave of figures are Human Male characters of varying class archetypes in line with systems such as Dungeons and Dragons and Pathfinder. More figures will be added as the campaign progresses and goals are achieved. The initial 7 figures can be viewed below:
NOW UNLOCKED AND SCULPTED:
The funds raised will be used to cover the costs of production including high resolution 3D printing, mold making, casting and packaging.
The 3D prints are of the highest quality with impeccable detail at 32mm scale, and these prints will be professionally cleaned and prepared for mould making, and resin copies will then be produced and sold. For game production, I do intend to produce the figures in white metal, however for the purposes of this Kickstarter they will be available for a limited time in resin.
Each figure is supplied with a slot on the bottom of the model which fits into a standard slotted wargaming figure base. Each model will be supplied with 25mm round slotted plastic base.
Figures are supplied unpainted, and will require cleaning with washing up liquid and warm water prior to priming and painting. They may also require some removal of excess material form the casting process (known as flash), which can usually be simply removed with a small file and/or a craft knife or scalpel. If you would like your miniatures painted, I can put you in contact with a few great commission painters who will be sure to do a fantastic job for you!
If this campaign is successful, there will be subsequent campaigns to produce female and racial variants of all classes including Dwarves, Elves, Halflings and Orcs.
KICKSTARTER EXCLUSIVE MINIATURE
There is an additional miniature which I have made which I am also making available through the Kickstarter as a backer exclusive miniature. This is an alternative version of the Barbarian in a diorama format, standing over the disembodied head of a slain dragon. The model comes on its own rocky base, so a plastic base is not required and so is not supplied. The diorama is 32mm scale, with the Barbarian himself is around 40mm from head to foot (he's a bit of a brute!)
FUNDING GOAL - £5000 - ACHIEVED!
There are 7 initial figures to be released - Fighter, Barbarian, Rogue Ranger, Cleric, Sorcerer and Wizard.
Stretch Goal 5 - £7250
A digital preview of the rule book for 'Talarius: Battlefield of the Gods' will be available free of charge to all Starting lineup, Full House, Epic Level and Legendary Level pledges.
After receiving lots of inquiries about female miniatures, I finally caved to the pressure and promised to add the first one in to the available selection ahead of the later stretch goals. The female fighter is now available as an add on or as part of your selection from Heroic level and up.
If the total number of backers for the project hits 200 or greater by the end of the campaign, I will sculpt and add "The Lion God" - a legendary and undefeated Gladiator of epic skill. This will also be given free to all Epic and Legendary backers but available to purchase as an add on. during the Kickstarter and also as a trade show exclusive in the future
EDIT: due to popular demand I have brought forward the release of the Lion God miniature to 150 backers, however at this stage it will only be available as a paid add on or as part of a selection. If the backer count hits 200 as per the original target, this will then be added on free to Epic level and Higher.
MAILING LIST EXCLUSIVE REWARD (FREE MINI!)
I have created a mailing list which lives on my Facebook page and is also available HERE. If you subscribe to my mailing list, as well as receiving information about new releases, work in progress and offers and discounts, you will also receive an exclusive Wizards Owl Familiar miniature when you make a pledge for at least 1 miniature
As worldwide shipping costs can vary considerably, and until you have selected all of your pledge rewards we do no know the size or weight of your package. Not wishing to overcharge anyone for shipping, I will get more accurate shipping costs and issue paypal invoices for the shipping value prior to dispatching any packages. I will endeavor in all cases to minimise shipping costs as much as possible (one of the reasons for using resin!), although I will insist that all packages are sent signed for as a minimum - if you would prefer a different/faster method of delivery, I will happily oblige provided that you cover the shipping costs in full.
Shipping will be done via Royal Mail, and all packages will be sent "signed for" as a minimum. If you would like to upgrade your shipping to Tracked and signed for, please let me know when paying for the shipping costs.
The Royal mail pricing guide can be viewed below:
The prices below approximate a small parcelthe prices below are based on a small parcel weighing around 200g. The final shipping price may vary dependant upon parcel weight. For an explanation of the Zones, please see the link above.

Just to re-iterate, your shipping costs will be additional to what you pay through kickstarter and once your order is packaged, an accurate shipping cost will be obtained and I will then issue you an invoice via paypal to cover the cost of shipping.
Risks and challenges
There is little in the way of risk to be considered other than falling short of the funding goal. I am doing all of the sculpting myself so I am confident in not being let down on that side! I have a good working relationship with the 3D printer and mold maker so I know they are reliable and can produce the quality of product that I need.
At the time of this campaign running, I have already had the first 2 figures printed and mastered and know that the end product is of the high standards I expect, that the turnaround time is achievable and importantly that the end product can be delivered
There is potential for a slight delay if I over fund and achieve a large number of stretch goals due to the number of additional figures that may need sculpting, although I have tried to factor this in to the shipping dates.
If this project funds, you will DEFINITELY get your figures!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
