Stretch Goal Achieved!

Thanks to your support we have been able to unlock the stretch goal Hawksbeard miniature and his wheelbarrow!

The gnome with the wheelbarrow will be made available free to anyone who has pledged for the full set of gnomes, and two copies of the miniature free to those who have backed us for the double set of gnomes and incur no additional postage 

Stretch Goal Announced £4000

"I'm afraid it's too late to get rid of them, they appear to have set their foundations..." observed the Wizard Gudgrief as he monitored the gnomes working on the hill through his spyglass.  The Baron groaned "It's one thing to have gnomes at the bottom of the garden, but it's the noise they make, and the terrible squeaking I hear at night."  Gudgrief stroked his beard as he scanned the growing gnome hill.  "Well, once the majority of the work is completed, you'll barely hear a thing of course... Aha!  There's your culprit!"  He passed the spyglass to the Baron, who watched a gnome with a wheelbarrow tipping a large pile of earth onto the mound before heading off to fetch more, the wheel squeaking ominously.  "I think I have a solution!" remarked Gudgrief to a hopeful looking Baron.  "You do?" He sighed with relief.  "Of course," said Gudgrief optimistically "a spot of oil on the wheel should do the trick..."

We are pleased to announce our stretch goal for this gnomish Kickstarter!  If we reach the stretch goal of £4000, Hawksbeard, the gnome with the wheelbarrow will be made available free to anyone who has pledged for the full set of gnomes, and two copies of the miniature free to those who have backed us for the double set of gnomes.  

As this is a 2-part miniatures, you won't be able to choose him as your reward for the single figure pledge, but you will be able to choose him as the reward for the double figure pledge, with Hawksbeard and his Barrow counting as BOTH of the miniature choices. 

The Baron of Midlam, on dealing with the matter of the 'Winter Adventurers' returned home to Midlam Manor, to a most alarming sight.  For there, at the end of his estate, at the bottom of the garden, was a hill, where previously, there had been no hill.

Fortunately the Wizard Gudgrief had accompanied him, and was quick with sage advice.  "I fear my Lord, that you have a mild infestation of gnomes, the common or garden sort.  Quite harmless, I assure you... "

The Baron did not look best pleased, for this was Midlam Manor, his supposedly secret retreat, far from the hustle and bustle and plotting and scheming of Midlam Town.  And now there were gnomes here.

Gudgrief, sensing the Baron's dismay was quick to step in.  "You'll find they are no bother, indeed, they are good at tending gardens so they team with flowers, will protect your grounds from wild animals and alert you to the coming of foes.  Other than that, you'll hardly know they are here... harrumph, apart from the hills of course... they do so like to build hills..."

Midlam Miniatures are pleased to present a collection of thirteen 28mm scale figures, for all of your Fantasy games. There are a variety of both male and female gnome miniatures.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is our seventh Kickstarter, and we are using it to help develop and extend our range of miniatures, in this case, gnomes.

Our six previous Kickstarters - Wizard Apprentices, Wizard Halflings, Cultists of the Kraken Lord, Servants of the Undead Pharaoh, Halfling Adventures and Winter Adventurers have all successfully funded and shipped. 

The gnomes are approximately eye-level with our previous halfling miniatures. A reference photo is included for scale: (Halfling miniatures not included in this kickstarter).

PLEASE NOTE: The miniatures are cast in a high quality pewter, with a high Tin content, but may contain a small quantity of lead. We unfortunately cannot guarantee lead free models. Most 'lead free' metal usually contains a small amount of lead.

The delivery date of January 2018, is our shipping date.  As we ship all over the world, delivery times vary considerably, and it's easier to give a shipping date rather than an arrival date.

All images and miniatures are ©2017 Midlam Miniatures.

Risks and challenges

Risks and challenges

Risks are low, though there is always a small chance that a figure does not cast properly.

In these unlikely circumstances we would either get a replacement mould or commission a sculpt by the original sculptor, matching the original as closely as possible, with whatever modifications are necessary for the miniatures to cast correctly.

Should this happen, the estimated release date of January 2017 for all miniatures could be pushed back by a month or two until any problem was fixed.

We will keep people updated at all stages of production to let them know how the manufacturing is going.
