Goblin Hood 28mm Fantasy Goblin Miniatures

Who Are We?

Macrocosm Miniatures is a small 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.

The Project.

We are looking to raise £100 to pay for production moulding of these 5 miniatures. Upon reaching the funding goal we will get the miniatures straight into moulds and start spinning up pledges for people.

The Miniatures.

The miniatures have been created using heads under licence from Short Wars miniatures (sculpted by Kev Adams). I felt really inspired to do some Robin Hood style miniatures but in a fantasy style. Having suffered a back injury over the festive season I found myself tinkering..... These are the result. 5 handsome unpainted 28mm metal Goblins.

I think these will be suitable for Dungeon Crawlers, Massed Battle or even small Skirmish games. All supplied with 25mm round bases.

Whats Next? 

Well keeping in mind this is a small project to 'test' the waters on these....
But if they do take off we will sculpt up some more. The goals represent the time and cost for me to get another set of 5 done and put into moulds.

Why Kickstarter?

We have used Kickstarter before to help us fund some fairly big projects and its been absolutely amazing for us as a small family run business allowing us to grow and  keep producing in these unsettled times. As these miniatures were created by me I wasn't sure if there would be a market for them. Kickstarter is an amazing tool to help us reach people and if you back us it will let us know what you think..

Safety in Numbers - UK - £4, Europe - £5, ROW - £10
Endless Swarm - UK - £10, Europe - £10, ROW - £20

Those are the totals. Items will be shipped via royal mail.

Risks and challenges

We have the master miniatures in hand, and we now make our own moulds with our press.

As we are doing the creating of these in house we can't see any issues.

Posting will be the main thing, getting the parcels wrapped and sent while juggling 2 small children and a slipped disk.........I am confident that unless this goes really well we can complete all the posting during February.
