About

Welcome to my Kickstarter!  

** To make it clear on the SIZE of these models, please note:

- Busts are measured from bottom of base to top of head, and are 75mm TALL.  The 193mm Bust is 193mm from bottom of base to top of head.

- Figures are measured from bottom of foot to eye.

30mm figures painted by Frozen Ninja 3D are now available, see the Add-On section for more details!  I have added some examples of my painting to the end of the Add-On section as well.  

My name is Mark Norton, and I am working full-time as a sculptor going by the name Frozen Ninja 3D. I am designing and sculpting my own line of highly detailed figures with the hopes of bringing people together for fun hobby times. In addition to sculpting, I also enjoy painting miniatures and making dioramas. I even received a silver at ReaperCon this year!

This is the third Kickstarter project that I have run, and the second project that features figures entirely designed and sculpted by me.  My previous Kickstarter projects were run under the name "M&K Adventures", but all projects going forward will be under my "Frozen Ninja 3D" name to distinguish the fact that I am doing all of the designing and sculpting of the figures.

What is being offered in this project?

Each figure is cast in high quality resin, and is supplied un-assembled and un-painted.  

** The Add-On List below will be kept up-to-date with all available figures and will be updated once Stretch-Goal figures are unlocked.  The list is located after these cool pictures : **

Let's get right to it and check out the miniatures.

Presenting the first set of figures/busts, "Summoning a Dragon 1".  She is in the middle of summoning a dragon, and everything seems to be going as she had planned.  She is available as a Huge 193mm Bust, a 75mm Bust, a 54mm Figure, and a standard 30mm gaming Figure.  The 2 Busts feature a Wizard's Tower as the base.

The third figure available is "The Barbarian 1".  He is ready to fight and defend with his hammer!  He looks great as a normal barbarian, and he looks amazing as a frost giant!  He is available in 30mm and 54mm sizes.

The fourth available figure is "The Big Guy", an Oni Warrior.  Duel-wielding a hammer and a mace, he is ready for combat.  He is available in 28mm and 55mm sizes.  He was the first miniature I ever made, and will always remain one of my favorites.

Add-On List

Here is a list of all of the figures that are currently available in this Kickstarter project. I will continue to update this list as stretch goals are reached.  

All of these prices are BELOW the retail price... for example, the Summoning a Dragon 1, 75mm Bust costs $30 in this Kickstarter but will retail at $40.  The 30mm figures normally retail at $13-16, and the 54mm figures normally retail at $25.  

Shipping will be charged separately, please refer to the shipping chart below for rates.

NOW AVAILABLE - Painting services!  If you want some of your 30mm figures painted by me, here is your chance!  Just add $15 for each figure you want painted (for example, it would be $12 for the figure and $15 to paint it = $27 total).  I will do a nice tabletop level paintjob for you, on a plain black base.  This should not affect delivery of the figures, as I will begin painting them as soon as I know which ones you want painted. 

Please send any questions!
Please send any questions!

Here you can see an example of my painting! I am offering Tabletop level painting, with blank bases. The bases I provide on my painted miniatures will not have the flock and grass as seen below, but the figures will be painted to this quality, (if you want me to do the base on your miniature, let me know and we can work it out.)

 More information...

All of my figures and busts are cast in high quality resin.  They will be supplied un-assembled and un-painted. The figures do not include bases.  The Busts include a custom base/stand for each one. 

In addition to designing and sculpting, I also quality check each piece. If you ever receive a defective piece, please notify me directly and I will make it right. 

Why Kickstarter?

I am bringing these figures to Kickstarter in order to help fund the production molds and casts.  I have paid for the 3D prints and master molds for every figure except for some of the final stretch goals.  

Shipping Chart

Shipping will be charged after the project ends.  Please refer to this shipping chart to estimate the shipping for your pledge.  The Minimum amounts listed are for a single figure.  The Maximum amounts listed would be the maximum amount you would be charged if your order includes a lot of figures, or if your order includes the 193mm Huge Bust :

A Little History...

My wife Kimberly and I founded M&K Adventures back in 2012. Our goal was to create fun miniatures, and that still remains our goal today.  We ran our first Kickstarter in 2015, which was successful and fulfilled on time.  :-)  After that we were very excited and began working towards launching Frozen Ninja 3D where I would begin showing off my own sculptures.  In 2017 we launched our second Kickstarter project, and it had figures completely designed and sculpted by me, Mark.   Once again the project was successful and it also was fulfilled on time.   Here is a link to our previous Kickstarter project :

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/670874743/30mm-to-110mm-fantasy-miniatures-and-sculptures?ref=nav_search&result=project&term=30mm%20to%20110mm

2018 has been an exciting year.  I have been working hard to make this Kickstarter the best it can be.  In addition, Kimberly and I presented all of our figures in our first role as Vendor at ReaperCon in August 2018.  It was an amazing time, and we met a lot of great people.

We are looking forward to a bright and thrilling future!

Risks and challenges

I have tried my best to minimize the risks associated with this project. I have paid for the 3D printing and master molds of almost every figure to ensure that my quality expectations are met.

Overall, this is the 3rd Kickstarter campaign that I have run. And this is the 2nd campaign featuring figures that were entirely designed and sculpted by me.

I have been working on this project full-time, and I will continue to work hard to ensure that every backer recieves their rewards in a timely manner.

Thank you for reading this far! Please feel free to send any questions.
