Who we are?

We are Sandstorm Miniatures, a young but rapidly growing company. We previously kickstarted our range of sci-fi miniatures, and now want to explore our passion for all things monstrous. So the focus of this kickstarter is a range of monstrous creatures. When developing the range we drew inspiration from various sources including but not limited to; myths, legends, popular stories, and the twisted imaginations of us and our sculptors. 

All the miniatures will be cast in high quality resin. So without further ado lets introduce the monsters.

Lempo, Keeper of the Forest - by Drew Day Williams - Large $40

Lempo lingers at the bottom of the deepest cave in the forgotten forest. Usually a friendly troll, he can often be found conversing with birds or caressing deer. However, when his forest is threatened by a trespasser, he will do everything in his power to protect his dear forest. 

He is a remarkable opponent to deal with. He has skin tougher than rock, his huge fists hit harder than a charging bull, and the forest has granted him magical powers. Lempo can also harness the power of the forest (literally) to smash his enemies. 

Compatible with ninth age : any giant,  Great green idol , Avatar of nature

Lempo is a big troll, he measures  100 mm and is 80 mm wide


Khone and Vhone, Hoarders - by Drew Day Williams - Large $40

Khone and Vhone are siamese brothers, both fond of violence, often found fighting themselves when no other victim is available. Each spring they prepare their armies to loot the neighbouring kingdoms, taking or destroying what they wish.  A previous raid they claimed the bell of a nearby cathedral, which had been proving quite an annoyance. One of their favourite trophies is the mace of the Mighty Og, an ogre champion who claims to be the largest ogre the world has seen. 

Every winter the brothers come back to their liar, adding the new booty to their ever more impressive hoard.

Compatible with the ninth age :  any  giant , Great green idol , chaos large monsters.

Khone and Vhone are big trolls, they measure 100 mm and  60 mm wide


Grandel, the Child - by Geoff Solomon - Medium $30

Grandel resides in a cavern with his mother, he often ventures out to the surrounding area, much to the terror of the neighbouring villages.

He deals with his anxieties with aggression.

The Ghoul Ogres - by Jason Fairclough - Medium $30 

These three brothers were once part of a large ogre clan, that would fiercely defend their underground caves. When famine struck and their numbers started to dwindle these brothers started to consume the rotten carcasses of their fallen allies, but soon this was not enough. Over time the cannibalistic trio became hideously deformed, even by ogre standards. 

Now they drag any animal or human that dares to pass their lair, to the festering corpse pile which they call a larder.

Risks and challenges

We expect to be able to produce these smoothly. The minaitures have been sculpted and they are with the caster or on the way to the caster.
We work with family run business so any injury or similar problem can delay the project.
We also are shipping from the uk and we have brexit looming over us, so we can not assure that there would not be import fees for our customers in Europe.
