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 £250 to pay for production costs and moulding of these miniatures in resin. Upon reaching the funding goal we will get the miniatures cast 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.
These resin miniatures are full of wonderful character. Each is supplied with a 40mm base. These are big chunky miniatures, as Orcs should be.....See the scale shot at the bottom of the project.
We have a few goals planned in the event of funding this project. We will add these to the project as we go.
1. £1000 - Another Crewman. Added to 'The Crew' pledges. This Orc is armed with a vicious blunderbuss. (Unlocked, crew now upto 9 miniatures)
2. £1500 - Another Crewman. Added to 'The Crew' Pledges. We will add another sword and pistol armed Orc.
The Goblin Crew are 10 miniatures (including a cannon) cast in metal and supplied with 25mm round bases heads used under licence from Short Wars.
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 are working on plans to release rules for these miniatures in our own rules system 'Ancient Grudges'.......
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.
We will be charging postage after the campaign. Postage is charged based on the exact amount at the post office. An estimate of the costs for the Orc Crew to Uk, Europe and Worldwide are £3.40, £4.10 and £5.60 (not tracked). We will give you the option to add tracking to the postage when we contact you after the campaign.
As we have said before, these are some big chunky miniatures.....
Risks and challenges
We've run a few projects now and we are learning all the time. We have our own resin caster and the sculpts are in hand and master moulded so we will be putting them straight into casting as soon as it funded.
We hope to have a very fast turn around for this campaign and it wont impact on any other projects that we are working on.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
