Welcome to our Dark Shadow Cultists Campaign!  A sinister cult of evil fanatics who perform unspeakable rites in the service of dark powers.  Who knows what chaos and wickedness they will bring to your games table!  Many of you will no doubt have recognised some of these excellent miniatures.  Over a year ago Dark Fable Miniatures acquired the rights from Otherworld Miniatures to this wonderful line of Evil Cultists made by Kev Adams (sets DS1 to DS4).  These figures are very high quality sculpts with lots of detail and character inspired by imagery from old school fantasy games.  We decided that it would be great to expand the evil cultist line further and had Kev sculpt some really cool new additions (sets DS5 to DS9).   It was also important to have new production moulds made for the former Otherworld cultists so the castings will be as crisp and clean as the originals.

There are 12 different pledges on offer from £9 to £118 designed to suit a variety of budgets.  However, the higher your contribution to the campaign the greater savings you will have per set of miniatures.  The two lowest pledge levels 1 and 2 have sets at £9 each which are roughly retail price, while the highest pledge level 12 works out to £7.37 each - a savings of £1.63 per set of miniatures.  We will also be adding a FREE Evil High Priest miniature to all pledges of level 5 and higher!  Not to mention there are a number of exciting fantasy add-ons available, such as the Ettin, Roper, Mimics and Cavemen.

These  high-quality 28mm miniatures come unpainted and are made from  a lead-free pewter alloy which have an incredible amount of detail and  personality.  The cultists come with plastic slotta bases (the textured resin bases in the photos are available from Fenris Games).  Whether you are a collector or gamer you are certain to enjoy these servants of evil!

What scale are these miniatures and what are they made of?

Most  of Dark Fable's human miniatures are 28-30mm tall, measuring from the  base of the foot to the eye. There may be a degree of variation  depending on the pose of the figure.  The miniatures are made from a  lead-free pewter alloy and are expertly spin cast by Griffin Moulds here  in England.

How much is postage?

Postage is NOT INCLUDED and will be charged separately after the campaign ends and the backer  surveys are received.  This will allow me to accurately calculate the  cost of shipping depending on your location and size/weight of your  package.  Orders in the UK will be sent Signed For, Orders in Europe and the Rest of the World (USA, Canada, Australia etc.) will be sent International Tracked and Signed.

When can I expect to get my miniatures?

I  am hoping to be able to start mailing out orders by August 2019.  All of the miniatures have been  sculpted and the master moulds complete on most - so what  remains is to have the production moulds and castings made.  If there  are any delays I will be sure to let you all know exactly what is going  on and how long it might take.

If you have any questions about any aspect of the campaign please send me a message and I will do my best to answer you.


 An small but exciting selection of giants, cavemen and monsters to add to your pledge.  To purchase add-on miniatures simply increase the amount of your pledge by the price of the set you would like.

Risks and challenges

Risks and challenges

This is Dark Fable Miniatures fourth campaign using the Kickstarter platform - our previous Kickstarters were all successfully funded and fulfilled. The risks for this campaign are minimal as all of the miniatures have already been sculpted and cast from master moulds. We are presently working on getting the production moulds made from which the castings will be spun. We are therefore confident that we can start sending out orders as early as August 2019. If there are any unforeseen delays or problems I will let you know immediately and what we are doing about it.
