Macrocosm Miniatures is a small family run UK miniature company based in Gloucestershire. We set up back in 2015 with a few Sci-Fi miniatures and since then the ranges have grown to hundreds of miniatures including Fantasy and Fantasy/Historical.
We are looking to fund a range of 28mm Undead Goblins and Dwarves as well as releasing a rules system for using these wonderful miniatures in. Miniatures will be cast in resin unless otherwise stated.
We need to raise £4000 to pay for production and manufacturing.
There are 2 types of pledges available. Pledges for people who just want our miniatures, and pledges for people who want to get into Ancient Grudges.
Ancient Grudges is our rules set. In this tome you will receive all the instructions you need to create your own Warbands of Undead and go raiding against your opponents.

The book will contain rules, scenarios, stories and painting guides. Everything you need to get gaming.
There are 2 Gamer pledges available that contain everything you need to get started.
The £50 pledge which gives you 2 starter sets with the Wight and Fanatical Goblin and a copy of the rules.
And the Deluxe Gamers edition £65 pledge which gives you 2 starter sets with the Wight and Fanatical Goblin and a copy of the rules. You will also receive the scenery set (walls and tomb) tokens and objective markers. RRP on all this individually is £95 so you are saving £30!!!!
Needy Cat Games will be creating the system of Ancient Grudges, and from what we have seen so far it is shaping up into something amazing.
Sophie will be doing regular blogs and updates on the creation of this wonderful system as we go. We will be linking them here and in our updates. This is a great opportunity to get involved too.

Early Playtest Ancient Grudges: Bonefields Video Update 11
In update 11 we see Sophie and James in an early phase of playtesting. The game is in flux and open to feedback. Even at this stage it is shaping up to be a fun game.
All our Add On miniatures are produced in resin unless otherwise stated. If a miniature appears metal it is because it is a master casting.
To add anything to your pledge just increase the pledge amount the add on costs.
As well as the miniatures, scenery and rules all of the pledge levels are available as add ons. So for example you can Pledge for the Gamers Deluxe Edition (£65) and an Undead Mob (£45), Select the Deluxe Edition pledge and make the total pledge amount £110.
The Add Ons below are grouped by price. For example if you wanted the Goblin archers and the Goblin command set you would need to add £20 to your pledge.
The Cavalry packs come with resin riders, arms and mounts. Supplied with 40mm round bases.
We will be charging postage after the campaign. Exact shipping will be calculated in the pledge manager however below are the average costs that we will be using to send your pledges. These prices are without tracking so we will give you the option to add that post campaign. Again these are estimates.
To give you an idea of the weight of the games the estimate for the deluxe version is 700 grams. The packs of 4 resin infantry around 15 grams.
This project is manufactured in the UK and that is where shipping will be taking place from.

Risks and challenges
We have been working on Kickstarter projects for a while now and are aware of the complex issues with the production of the miniatures.
We currently have most the miniatures in hand and in master moulds so we only need to create the production moulds and then spin up/ resin cast the orders. Ordering of boxes and books is well within the time frames and we are working with a reputable printers.
In the past we have promised fulfilment in a very short time span, we have found that its better to overestimate the delivery date as we dont want to let people down.
Postage is going to be charged post campaign so as not to distort the pledge totals.
Macrocosm is growing and we appreciate all your support.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
