Welcome to Mouse Adventure, a new set of figures by Cartoon Miniatures. This is our second company in Kickstarter, the first one, Ancient Warriors, was very successful. The set was designed by a team of professionals keen to go all the way from creative brainstorming to delivering quality and memorable products. Now we present you the Mouse Adventure collection. The miniatures were conceived to appeal to collectors and board game fans alike. Join the adventure and get the figures by pledging on Kickstarter.
The characters in this project were inspired by the world of Mice and Mystics, designed by Jerry Hawthorne and copyrighted by Plaid Hat Games.
Every model is:
- cast from resin
- highly detailed
- available as a limited run
- made in the most common 28 mm scale
Welcome to the world of Mouse Adventure!
Nobody knows when and how humans disappeared. As years passed, mighty heroes of old faded from memory. The world was left unprotected, and soon the evil powers crept in.
Dark magic transformed the world, and the animals that were touched by its evil were corrupted and turned into dark monsters that hunt for prey after sunset.
When the humans were gone, some of their creations were left behind. Castle Tolmak stood abandoned for many years, until its greatest treasure, the Milleron Stone, was rediscovered. An artefact of unparalleled strength, the Stone bars evil monsters from ever entering the Castle that has become the last stronghold for the forces of good. Even a piece of Milleron is powerful enough to protect a small village from the dreadful creatures.
Mouse Adventure Collection
Mouse Adventure Collection is planned in five chapters. Chapter One is currently active, and Chapter Two will be unlocked as we hit the first funding milestone of 3,000 euro.
Chapter One. Mouse Folk
Centuries ago a group of ordinary mice was attracted to the Milleron Stone and settled in its hall. The magical forces within the Stone awakened the mice, and soon they were growing stronger, walking on hind legs, using tools, and learning the mysterious powers of Milleron.
The following figures are released in Chapter One:
Sir Kori the Warrior
Sir Kori is the only son of Kori the Iron Knight who commanded the Tolmak Army in the war with Cats. The old knight was slain in the final battle, but his legacy is preserved by Kori the Younger, whose dignity and courage have already earned him the right to wear sword, shield, and arms.
Meryl the Archer
Meryl is the best ranger of the Mouse Folk. She has been keeping watch over the vicinity of Castle Tolmak for more than ten years. Meryl is resilient, courageous, and stubborn, and no danger would force her off the chosen way.
Haald the Smith
Haald is moody and often keeps himself company, but swords and armor forged by the smith are much valued for their strength. He always carries his hammer that was forged by his grandfather, and his strong arms know no fatigue.
Ethel the Priestess
Even among the true worshipers of the Dormant Mother the gift of true healing is rare. But Ethel was always keen to help others in these dark times and ward off the evil with the Mother’s blessing. Kind, merciful, and compassionate, she can heal almost any wound, but not the wounds of her own soul.
Tyk the Rogue
Little is known about the Rogue, and those who get in his way, rarely live long enough to tell others. Rumors say that Tyk is cunning and dangerous but always remains true to his one and only principle, never to harm the poor and the innocent.
Berfrid the Wizard
Berfrid spent his youth seeking knowledge of the Milleron Stone and the country outside. His powers helped the Mouse Folk in their wars with Cats, Shadows, and Rats. But the evil is once again plotting against the powers of good. Wherever he goes, Berfrid is accompanied by Sibi the Beetle, his most faithful assistant.

Chapter Two. Rats
Not all of the Mouse Folk chose to serve the good cause. Those who preferred exile became ruthless marauders. As evil turned them into bloodthirsty Rats, their leader Malin created the Fangs of Justice, a brotherhood of soldiers, murderers, and spies. Their training starts soon after they are born, and by the time they grow up, their devotion to Malin is absolute. Adult warrior rats are dangerous and resourceful enemies, their thick skin protects them in battle, and they are armed by weapons made of the tough steel that they steal from the Moles.
All the Rats figures are assembled from several pieces. By combining pieces you can create up to 10 new characters. If you order two Chapter Two sets, you can assemble 12 different Warrior Rats armed by weapons of close combat.
A new Chapter will be unlocked as we hit the second funding milestone of 4,500 euro.

Chapter Three. The Vermin
Malin’s followers chose Long Caves as their new home. Now the caves thrive with throngs of rats and vermin that Malin’s servants breed in malice and eternal hunger. Monstrous spiders and centipedes swarm inside the Caves and crawl out at night to hunt and bring their prey to their cruel masters.
Only the best members of the Fangs of Justice are chosen to serve in Malin’s personal guard. Other rats call them Nutcrackers, as the loud crack that their cross bows make is often the last thing their poor victims hear. The Nutcrackers are skilled archers and almost never miss their target.
During an unusually long journey, the map makers of Tolmak met a caravan of strange creatures. Tall and peculiar looking, they came from the land of Chameleons. Afeer, one of the lizards, was eager to share the stories and lore of his native lands, and the mice invited him to Castle Tolmak. Always resourceful and good spirited, Afeer assisted the Mouse Folk in many ventures and became an important figure in the castle.
Molding figurines became a serious hobby after Stepan Nikolaev once stumbled upon a website dedicated to the hobby. He took great effort to study works by some of the best miniature artists and try to understand how they manage to achieve this much. He also started crafting some basic figurines himself. Mediocre at first, he never gave up and spent years trying to master the craft and the skills necessary to do the job. Finally, in 2015 one of his figurines took the first place in an online competition for novice miniature figure makers. This result helped secure a job offer, and in 2017 he left his daytime position at a bank to turn his hobby into a professional occupation and share his passion for quality figurines with those who appreciate high standards in the hobby.
Author of the original concept and head of Cartoon Miniatures.
An avid collector since childhood, Vladimir Petrov was fascinated to find other fans of the miniature figures and share his ideas and designs to promote the hobby. He started creating and popularizing his own collectible figurines, and created Cartoon Miniatures to produce high quality collections, including Ancient Warriors and Mouse Adventure.
We are Frank and Wendy, a married couple who started wendysminiatures.nl 2 years ago. We paint and collect figurines and miniatures and discovered that there was no meaningful store in Holland where you can buy these figures, so we decided to start a shop ourselves. We are always looking for new and different figures so we can offer a great range of miniatures. Cartoon Miniatures is surely up to the task. They make high quality products with a whole new and refreshing look on things.
The miniatures of Chapter One will be delivered in March 2018. Delivery schedule for further chapters will be announced at a later date.
