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.
We are looking to raise £800 to pay for production of these miniatures. We currently have the range master moulded however we need to make production moulds for the entire range. This is costly and time consuming. We need your help and support to allow us to do this.
The New Miniatures.
We have created several new races for this campaign focusing mainly on our Legion Of Steel faction of 28mm Space Dwarves. These miniatures fit alongside our current range of Space Dwarves 'The Digger Corps'. The Legion Of Steel are a more professional standing army for the Digger Corps and come with a range of interesting Auxiliary units. These are a selection of resin and metal miniatures cast in a white metal alloy that contains a small amount of lead.
Each of these count as one pack to your pledge. Individual packs can be added to your pledges for £12 each. There are 3 different pledge levels to chose from, and you will see the pack price goes down with the higher pledges creating more value to your pledge.
As you can see we have been busy creating miniatures for your wargames. But it doesn't stop here. We have planned out the following goals if we can reach them.
£1000 - Heavy Weapon Support teams. Unlocked- If we reach this goal we will add several options for heavy weapon packs to the choices you can pick from. See Update One For Details
1. You get a choice of crew. Crew with gas masks and crew without. 2. You get a choice of 3 weapon mounts, Wheeled, Struts and Small wheels (the painted picture example) .
3. There are specific weapons for each as shown in the pictures. Im sure with a little modification they will work on all 3 mounts, but for now the heavy laser goes with the big wheeled version and the Autocannon goes on the small wheels and struts.
Add them to your pledges for £8 each or 3 for £20
£1500 - Aux Unit 4 - Unlocked The Wraith. These killers stalk the night causing mayhem and chaos behind enemy lines. If we hit this goal we will add a pack of 5 miniatures to the choices or you can purchase them for £12.

To help us on our way we have added the following items to the add ons section. Just simply increase your pledge by the required amount of the add on.
Below are a number of shots for scale comparison with other miniatures in this project.
Risks and challenges
We have been working on Kickstarter projects for a while now and are aware of the complex issues with the production of the miniatures.
We currently have all the miniatures in hand and in master moulds so we only need to create the production moulds and then spin up the orders.
In the past we have promised fulfilment in a very short time span, we have found that its better to overestimate the delivery date as we dont want to let people down. We currently have 2 other campaigns we are fulfilling (Cut'u and Goblin Hood 2) and do not foresee any issue completing them and this small campaign at the same time. The Cut'u is about to be completed and the Goblin Hood will be completed in September on time.
Posting has been an issue in the past, the sheer number of missing parcels has been very disheartening. We have decided we will be sending 90% of the pledges via recorded post to ensure their safety and your satisfaction.
Macrocosm is growing and we appreciate all your support.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
