About

Old Salt 28mm Fantasy Pirate Ratmen

£2,368

 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 white metal. The miniatures will be put into production moulds as soon as the funding is received. 

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.

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. Currently we are fulfilling the Ancient Grudges: Bonefields Kickstarter and this just requires the book to be sent for printing for half of the backers.
