The Mirliton company, born from a hobby of the owner and founder Grazzini Stefano, produces historical miniatures since 1983 in the 15, 20 and 28 mm scales. In 2003 there was a turning point; it had the opportunity to buy from the bankruptcy of the Nemo company in Milan, most of the master molds and production molds with the relative rights of the American company Grenadier Models.
After the successful Netflix television series "Stranger Things" set in the 80s, there were many requests from fans and 40-year-old players, who played with the same miniatures that were seen in the film, first of all the beautiful miniature of the Demogorgon and then again, of the Mind Lord. I had already cast the Demogorgon miniature there, in a box, probably coming from the same mold from which the miniature of our characters was cast. I have always said; beautiful that miniature!!! One day or another I will have to reprint and put on the market. Then after the film I did not know yet, questions began to arrive if by chance the Demogorgon was not in our molds. I decided then that it was time to re cast it and it was the end of the day !! It's amazing how the success of a single miniature can make the difference in sales for a company. Behind the wake of the Demogorgone and the Dungeon & Dragons game played by the protagonists of the hit series, it seems that an interest in the old miniatures has reignited, say "Vintage" that have an unparalleled charm even compared to the type of sculpture, which pradoxically, for a world of fantasy, however, is closer to the reality of the style of the models sculpted today, with a decidedly more Gothic style.
Our project is therefore to reprint all the old series of the company Grenadier Models, starting from the best known Dragon Lords. The work was and is titanic, because we had to do a detailed research, almost as if we were blibliotecari, looking for all the molds of the masters where these miniatures were found. It goes back to the early days of the glorious Grenadier, when the miniatures were still part of even older series, Wizzard and Warriors, Gamma World, Pinnacle, Andrew Chernack personality, in short a work of archeology of miniature. The work was hard, but we did it. Even the dress of the boxes has been recreated in the style of the old series of Dragon Lords. We are sure that collectors will be a real boon!!
We have recovered the original molds of the masters in our archive.
After a long search we selected the molds that were used to rebuild the series that we will propose in this kickstarter.
From these with melding we have obtained new masters.
Once the new masters have been created, it was necessary to clean up and correct any casting defects, so we got new masters!
With the new masters we have created new molds, which will allow us to produce your miniatures!

In the careful search of the miniatures masters who were part of the Dragon Lords series, we found many others that are often never produced. Some have been remodified several times, so that there are different versions used then in the subsequent series. As if a coin had been coined with a defect, printed in a few copies and then re-edited and subsequently and definitively coined. They are true rarities. We have decided to make these rarity available to our supporters in this Crowdfunding campaign, as prizes to help us in this ambitious project.
