It had been some months now, without any disturbance at Midlam Manor, for which the Baron was grateful. However, on reflection, it was perhaps too quiet. No sooner had he considered this, then there was a terrible creaking of doors, mysterious footsteps and a most unholy wailing. The haunting of Midlam Manor had begun.
It had long been known that the Baron’s ancient ancestral home was haunted, but sightings of ghosts had been mercifully rare. But now, from the great hall to the kitchens and from the dungeons to the battlements, all the lost souls of Midlam Manor walked the corridors once more...
Midlam Miniatures are pleased to present a collection of nine 28mm scale ghost miniatures for use in all of your fantasy, horror and pulp games.
STRETCH GOAL UNLOCKED!
The Baron rapidly leafed through the mighty tome that had arrived by coach from Midlam. The High Wizard was busy dealing with the vampire threat and, regretfully, couldn't leave Midlam, but had sent what he hoped would be a useful aid in the battle against the ethereal spirits plaguing the manor. As the Baron discounted various wards and rituals, a book began to fly off the shelf and landed nearby, its pages starting to turn, unaided. The Old Baron of Midlam materialised in the chair opposite, and holding his disembodied head in his hands, read through the pages. "Hello, old chap, rum business. Dealt with a few spooks back in my day, need any help?" Another terrible scream, filled the air and the Baron recognised the last agonising sound of the Old Cook. "Under the circumstances, I would be most grateful for your assistance...". Both Barons turned back to their books, desperately looking for an answer...
We are pleased to say that the Spirit of Death stretch goal has been unlocked! As a result of your fantastic support, we can now include a Spirit of Death miniature, for free, with no additional postage, with each full set of 'The Haunting of Midlam Manor' reward that is backed. The Spirit of Death can also be chosen as one of the miniature rewards for the single (e.g. one miniature or Spirit of Death) or double miniature pledges (two miniatures, either or both of which could be the Spirit of Death).
STRETCH GOAL ANNOUNCED! £4000
So far, it had been unnerving, but nobody had been harmed by the plethora of ghosts that had crept from the ancient manor's woodwork. However, the baron was startled by a blood curdling scream, followed by a large thump. Racing upstairs, to his horror, he found the body of one of his servants, sprawled on the landing, a look of unspeakable horror etched upon their face. And, advancing towards him, the apparition of death itself...
Is Death Coming to Midlam Manor?
Should we reach the stretch goal of £4000, we will include a Spirit of Death miniature, for free, with no additional postage, with each full set of 'The Haunting of Midlam Manor' reward that is backed. If we reach the stretch goal, The Spirit of Death will also be available to be chosen as one of the miniatures for the single or double miniature pledges.
Optional Add-On - The Vampires of Old Midlam Town
Doing his best to ignore the incessant moans and cries, the Baron examined a message that had just arrived from the High Wizard of Midlam, informing him that suspicious characters had arrived by coach from Ammerlund and since then there has already been a number of suspicious disappearances. Of course, his help was urgently required. The Baron sighed, hoping he could get rid of the ghosts quickly before the vampire cult became established In Midlam...
To bolster the ranks of the Undead, we present a set of 7 classic Vampires, available as an add-on to the main reward.
These metal Vampire models are approximately 28-30mm tall (from sole of foot to top of head, excluding integral metal base). They are supplied unpainted and without the plastic base or scenery shown in the picture, which is for illustrative purposes only.
About Midlam Miniatures and Our Kickstarters
This is our eighth Kickstarter, and we are using it to help develop and extend our range of miniatures, in this case, ghosts! We have been very grateful to all the support we have received in the past and hope you will join us on our latest project.
Our seven previous Kickstarters - Wizard Apprentices, Wizard Halflings, Cultists of the Kraken Lord, Servants of the Undead Pharaoh, Halfling Adventures, Winter Adventurers and Common or Garden Gnomes have all successfully funded and shipped.
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 to help the metal flow into the mould.
The delivery date of April 2018, is our shipping date, rather than an arrival date. As we ship all over the world, delivery times will vary considerably, even within the same countries. From our experience, the majority of deliveries take as little as a couple of days (UK), to a couple of weeks (international) although we have found a minority of deliveries can take up to (and in rare cases more than) a month to arrive. We ask you to please be patient as it is our experience that almost all deliveries do arrive safely at their destination.

Risks and challenges
Risks are low, though there is always a small chance that, for one reason or another, 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 April 2018 for all miniatures could be pushed back by a month or two until any problem was fixed. Although, across all seven of our Kickstarters, we have only had one serious issue with a miniature, which in the end, only added a couple of weeks to shipping.
We strive to keep people updated at all stages of production to let them know how the manufacturing is going.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
