The Baron, in his great weariness, had fastened the reins of his horse tightly around his hands and knotted them, so they would not fall from his grasp.  

As they entered the city, trying to focus his eyes upon the Wizard Gudgrief who rode a little ahead, and he noticed as they passed beneath the great gate that few paid him little, if any, any attention.  He realised that he must cut a sorry figure indeed.  Perhaps it was for the best that the guards did not recognise him.

As they made their way to the stables by the Wizards' college, the Baron was struck by the sorry downtrodden state of many of the citizens.  They kept their heads low, or covered their heads or faces.  Some walked with a strange gait, and their hands and fingers seemed bloated.

"Plague?" whispered the Baron hoarsely as he pulled alongside the Wizard.

"A disease... of sorts. Some of them have begun to call themselves, The Chosen, as if it were a blessing, not a curse.  But... it would be best not to talk of it here... for the beast, it has too many eyes... too many limbs!"

The Wizard Gudgrief calmed himself and his eyes took on a steely quality. 

"I fear an old foe has returned..."

The Baron shivered.

Stretch Goal for the Return of the Cult of the Kraken Lord!  

We are pleased to announce the Stretch Goals for the Return of the Cult of the Kraken Lord! Sir Berris, leader of The Chosen and Kzaurk, a female hunting beast of the Kraken Lord.  

Should we reach £6000, then we will include one of each miniature free with every 'Return of the Cult and The Chosen' and 'Greater Cult and the Chosen' pledges.  

Anyone backing 'The Return of the Cult of the Kraken Lord' or 'The Greater Cult of the Kraken Lord' pledge will receive one Kzaurk (Female Hunting Beast) miniature free of charge.  

Anyone backing 'The Chosen' pledge will receive one 'Sir Berris' miniature free of charge.  

Backers who pledge for a single or double miniature reward will be able to choose one of these miniatures as one of their options.  

The Return of the Cult of the Kraken Lord! (Miniatures #1 - #10)

Welcome to the Return of the Cult of the Kraken Lord! A collection of vile cultists!

The Chosen (Miniatures #11 - #20)

The Chosen, poor unfortunates who have been cursed by the Kraken Lord!

Cult of the Kraken Lord (Miniatures from our 3rd Kickstarter)

The original 2016 Cultist Kickstarter, with 7 Cultists, 2 Guardians miniatures and 1 High Priest on the Kraken Throne.

A Note on Metal  

The miniatures are cast in a high quality pewter, with a high Tin content, but may contain a small quantity of lead (typically no more than 5%). 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. Below is an actual picture of the shiny metal we use.

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 for all miniatures could be pushed back by a month or two until any problem was fixed.

Although, across all ten of our Kickstarters, and over a hundred miniatures made, we have only had one serious issue with one 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.
