We love Pulp Miniature gaming, we love classic movies. We thought it would be a great idea to have a range of miniatures for gaming inspired by the iconic images of classic movies, brought to your table top in glorious crisply cast pewter. Last year we ran our first Classic Movie Miniatures Kick-starter and developed three packs of miniatures inspired by one of my favorite classic movies, Casablanca together with miniatures inspired by The Maltese Falcon and Tales of the Gold Monkey.

To kick off episode two of our Classic Movie Miniatures campaign we have commissioned three new packs of miniatures inspired by Abbot & Costello wartime movie ‘In the Navy’, Margret Rutherford’s portrayal of Miss Marple in ‘Murder at the Gallops’ and ‘High Road to China’ We are hoping to extend the range during this campaign so for every £1000 pledged we will enable backers to vote to select the next classic movie to have a set of four miniatures developed from.  

As a backer, you get to both suggest movies and then vote on them.

Risks and challenges

We have the first 3 packs already sculpted and master mold made, so these just need production molds making. We have sculpting and mold making time booked for additional packs developed during campaign.
This is the fifth crowd-funded project we have run. The first four have all been delivered to time and budget.
