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.
The Rat Crew burst onto the Old Salt scene with a variety of crew and weapons suitable for many skirmish (and mass battle) games.
The 'Crew' pack consists of the following 10 miniatures.
1 First Mate,
4 Deck Hands with sword and pistol (3 unique sculpts),
4 Deck Hands with longrifle (3 unique sculpts)
These 10 miniatures come as a set with bases for a pledge of £20.
Below is a selection of add ons you can increase your pledges by the amount to add to your Pi-Rats crew.......
All these miniatures are cast in a white metal alloy and are supplied unpainted and with bases. Some require assembly.
We have plans to sculpt a Pirate Rat Ogre for the crew and if it is a popular option we will start working on it straight away. It will be sculpted by myself and will be done in the same scale as our existing Pirate Ogres.
£1000 - Rat Ogre Crewman UNLOCKED. If we reach this number we will sculpt up a Rat Ogre for the add ons section for £8.
Sculpted by the talented Phil Hynes of Bears Head Miniatures.
£1500 - Rat Ogre Armed with Cannon UNLOCKED. If we hit this goal Phil will sculpt a Rat Ogre wielding a cannon. £8 add on.
£2000 - Rat Ogres - 2 more variants of Rat Ogres with various weapons.
£2500 - More Rats With Cannons - We will create 2 more Rat Ogres with Cannons.
We will be offering this selection of add ons for customising your collection.
Angry swarm of tortoise (5 not including base) £5. Or 5 sets for £20 (25 of them).
Postage. We will be charging postage after the campaign. Postage is charged based on the exact amount at the post office.
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.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
