About


There comes a time, as Alice surely once thought, that chasing a white rabbit in a suit down a hole is not really the most sensible way to start the day… an adventure maybe, but certainly not the day... some doors are not meant to be open or even, dare it be said, left ajar… doors left ajar tend to let all sorts of things both in and out.

Geründerland was such a place; that is to say that a door there had been left somewhat ajar, in that it was most definitely not closed. When you hear the pitter patter of tiny feet as a child you assume it is the approach of younger siblings... as you grow older you assume it is beloved offspring… in Geründerland you assume nothing… it is always better to flee.

This project is to bring an assortment of miniatures from concept to reality allowing players to re-enact the adventures of young Alice, a dream-swept young lady, herself of not unformidable powers yet to be discovered, caught in a dimension somewhat removed from her own. In the crazed world of Geründerland she will encounter many evil creatures and also new friends from card-toting soldiery to mad-hatted alcoholics, from rather rotund twins to Queens of Hearts and Tarts... the madness has just begun...

You can of course use the miniatures in whatever game you play, from post-apocalyptic mayhem to rabbit infested Wind in the Willows style adventures... imagination is your gateway to fun.

This initial release of miniatures are approximately 28mm from lucky foot to top of their head... floppy ears not withstanding...

 Every miniature, each of which is sculpted by the awfully talented Martin Buck, will be lovingly produced in the heart of the lead belt, otherwise known as Nottingham, by Uncle Pete at The Mouldmaker. The miniatures are produced in white metal which contains lead and, as such, should not be given to children under the age of 14 and should most certainly not be swallowed... they are rather pointy as well so do be careful.  They may also require a little cleaning up of minor molds lines or 'flash' using modelling knives and files. All miniatures are supplied unpainted and without bases.

Risks and challenges

I've already completed 2 projects through Kickstarter (both for Noggin the Nog licensed ranges) and have other ranges via my company https://thelittlesoldiercompany.co.uk/. The last project didn't come in on time due to a close family bereavement however was completed after an extra couple of months. All the miniatures here have been sculpted and the master molds already made. I don't foresee any issues completing this one.
