About this project

  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.

 
Continuing our Pirate run, we are looking to raise £1000 to pay for production moulding of these miniatures. Upon reaching the funding goal we will get the miniatures straight into moulds and start spinning up pledges for people.

By supporting us in this project you will be getting the miniatures faster and cheaper than if you waited for them to come to retail.

 

The Crew £40
The Crew £40


The Crew miniatures are 28mm scale, cast in a white metal (containing a small trace of lead) and come with a 25mm round plastic base.

The Crew pledge represents a £9 (20% ) saving over individual purchase.

Also available in single, smaller, packs as Add-Ons below


'Where to next?' we hear you cry! Well we have plans for a few more miniatures to be added to this project at certain points if we can hit the funding for them.

Goals

£1500 - Unlocked Cut'u Grenadiers, Hookmen and Pistoliers (armed with 2 pistols)
£2000 -  Unlocked Angler Fishmen Ogres. 4 New bigger sculpts supplied with 40mm bases.

£2500 - Cut'ugres. 2 miniatures, I had a play with some putty and these were the result. After some positive feedback on my Facebook page I decided to squeeze these in. They will be a £14 add on or you can get the heads for £5 for 2.

There are so many existing games out there that these are useful for from massed battle (Kings of War) to small skirmish and anything inbetween.

We also recommend taking a look at Strange Grogge available to download from Wargame Vault for $3.25.

Strange Grogge is a set of black powder fantasy skirmish rules, designed for 28mm scale battles between orcs, dwarves, elves and other popular fantasy races set in the fantasy realm of The Land, centring around the pirate infested region known as The Barbarous Coaste.

In the game the player creates and takes control of either a band of pirates or government troops and fights out any of the frequent skirmishes that take place in the towns, jungles, lagoons and islands that make up the Barbarous Coaste.  

Risks and challenges

We've run a few projects now and we are learning all the time. We have our own inhouse mouldpress and the sculpts are in hand so we will be putting them straight into our casting machine as soon as it funded.

Posting will be the main thing, getting the parcels wrapped and sent while juggling 2 small children.
