Welcome to Dark Fable Miniature's Orc Warband Campaign!  This is Dark Fable's first foray into a purely fantasy themed project and we decided to start with a selection of savage orcs, the foot soldiers of the forces of evil. We wanted to go for a more ancients feel rather than the usual fantasy medieval look that most orcs and goblins have, so no plate armour, crossbows or halberds. These are your classic go to bad guys - a ferocious band of ravaging orcs in grungy tunics with spikey helmets and crudely fashioned weapons. Ideal opponents for your dungeon party or wandering heroes!

All of the Orcs have been made by Kev Adams working from my concept images and we think he has done a fantastic job on them!  There are five sets to choose from 1. Orc Fighters I  2. Orc Fighters II  3. Orc Spears I  4. Orc Archers and 5. Orc Command.  We also have our first fantasy monster for this range - a beautifully sculpted Basilisk by Andy Pieper which is available as an add-on!  Not to mention a number of cool stretch goal rewards to help you bulk out your warband even more!

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. Whether you are a collector or gamer you are certain to enjoy our new Orcish Warband!

There are a variety of pledges to suit every budget, which range in price from £11 to £160.  Each pledge allows you to choose which sets of miniatures you would like.  The miniatures are unpainted and come with square plastic slotta bases.

  • 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.  The orcs range from 28 - 32mm high - 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 will be sent tracked and signed.

  • When can I expect to get my miniatures?

I am hoping to be able to start mailing out orders by the start of July  2018 if not earlier.  nearly all of the miniatures have been sculpted and we have 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.

Risks and challenges

Risks and challenges

This is our second Kick-starter campaign but Dark Fable Miniatures has previously conducted seven other fund-raising projects - all of which were successfully funded and fulfilled.

The risks for this campaign are minimal as almost all of the miniatures have already been sculpted. We are presently in the process of having the green sculpts made into castings - Production moulds will then be made for each set. We are therefore confident that we can start sending out orders by the beginning of July if not earlier. If there are any unforeseen delays or problems I will let you know immediately and what we are doing about it.
