Wolfthorn miniatures is a new company with a clear goal. We are dedicated to bringing the gamers and hobbiests epic and dynamic fantasy miniatures in 32mm scale.
So who are we really? 6 years ago I had a vision, it started with a sketch pad and a few character ideas. ( though the sketches were quite terrible), the ideas became something more to me. Over the years I expanded on it, designing the three models in this Kickstarter as well as donzens of others in my own fantasy world. In late 2015 I contacted artist, Pablo Fernandez, who took my sketches and ideas and created beautiful works of art. The artwork was then handed off to Lux Thantor who took those designs and sculpted amazingly detailed miniatures. And so my vision was falling in place. Now we need your help to produce these miniatures so that everyone can enjoy them in the comfort of their home.
Our first kickstarter will introduce a hand full of high quality fantasy miniatures from a world, five years in the making. Between Wolf summoning mages to Bear mounted commanders, Wolfthorn is aiming to leave it's mark on the fantasy genre. You can help up do just that.
In this Campaign we are aiming to deliver 3 models, each representing one of the 3 main archtypes in the fantasy genre. (Spell caster, Ranger, Warrior) . If successfully funded we will be able to move into the stretch goals and have even more epic models sculpted for you to enjoy.
We are bringing you 3 unique models sculpted in 32mm heroic scale. All dipicting a dynamic pose with high detail to make these models perfect for painters, or those who want to play something special in their RPG games
Command the power of the black fire and conjour beasts to your side as you assume the mantle of the Wolf Mage. This character has a lot going on from the 3 flaming wolves to the dream catcher on his belt. Full of detail and character.
Hunt your foes through the forests with the iconic Elven archer. A unique blend of Metal, leaves and feathers make for a beautiful design and fantastic addition to any Elven army or a grand hero for your adventures.
Dominate the battlefields as you charge fearlessly into battle atop a mighty War Bear. Armoued and fit for combat, the Bear Lord offers a fantastic model filled with tons of high detail and a one of a kind design, all brought together with a dynamic pose. With optional shield and rifle, this character offers virsitility in any scenario.
Our Process to makin our models sends each character through many stages of approval. Starting with concept art, we work hard to ensure the design is unique and every detail is considered.
After the artwork has been approved, we move toward the sculpting process. Handling this is Lux Thantor. We work out all the details from the pose and any changes that may need to be made for technical reasons. (An example of this would be the helmet of the rider and shoulder armor of the Bear.)
This processed takes weeks of work and back and forth communication to insure the finial sculpt is perfected.
After we finilize the sculpt, we send the model to GRX creations, who will be handling the casting process to ensure that each model is represented in high quality resin while retaining ever bit of detail seen in the original sculpt.
With a working relationship with artist, sculptor and caster, this project can be fully accomplished, but not without your help, as all the above requires money. For 2 years I have done the beat I can by myself to fund as much as I can, however life expenses always win out and if this project is to become a reality, I require your help.
So if the art is done and the models are sculpted, what are we funding? Glad you asked! The money from this Kickstarter will go straight into resin production and packaging to insure the models arrive in the best quality we can achieve. Any addition funds from this Kickstarter will go straight into he sculpting and production of additional models found in the stretch goals. We have a handful of character designs ready to be sculpted as soon as we have the funding. And countless ideas remaining to be designed. We hope this is the start of a grand line of epic fantasy models, each with unique designs and beautiful sculping. So join us and help this vision become a reality!
As our first Kickstarter, we wanted to keep it simple By only offering 2 pledge levels. The choice to acquire 1 or all 3 of the models in this campaign.
We have a handful of additional character that can be sculpted with the proper funding. With the success of the Kickstarter, we can now move onto the stretch goals!
A special thanks to all the artists who helped this far!

Risks and challenges
Risks are a tricky thing. A lot of factors go into a project. However the models are already sculpted and resin samples have been produced for 2/3 models, that limits what can go wrong. We have a good working relationship with every section of production to insure that if funded, you will get your rewards. The only risk is time. If we start unlocking stretch goals, time to sculpt and cast may potentially delay shipment. We however have taken this into account and are making preparations to insure this does not happen. The risks are minimal, the groundwork is layed out. Time is all that remains.
**Shipping costs for pledges will be calculated at the end of the campaign.**
