About

The 'Strange Fiction 28mm Miniatures' Kickstarter campaign is comprised of 3 sets of 6 hand sculpted 28mm Miniatures, in addition each set has optional add-ons bringing the campaign to a total of 30 unique miniatures!

You can use these figures in any of your existing games or rule sets, I think they will be particularly suitable for skirmish games and if they don't fit in, no problem, make them fit in! The only rule is that there are no rules, I encourage you to create your own :D

This is only the beginning!

If funded I will be expanding upon all 3 sets to create some truly weird and wonderful miniatures. I am also open to input from the community as to what you would like to see added and the direction these ranges should take.

A fog ascends over the streets of London, figures shuffle incoherently by the light of the gas lamps and a foul stench is in the air, nothing is out of the ordinary in Victorian London... The perfect environment for a flesh eating plague of the undead!

What you get;

  • Zombie Gentleman
  • Zombie Lady
  • Zombie Bobby
  • Zombie Docker
  • Zombie Street Urchin
  • Zombie Prostitute

Note: If successful all miniatures will be cast in white metal.

Victorian Zombie Hunters

We're not going to lie down and just let them overrun us, it's just not British! For Queen and country these guys are out to rid the streets of London of the Flesh hungry filth, no Zombie is safe from;

  • Bulldog Bill and Bulldog Sidekick
  • Rev. Green
  • Dead eye Dick

I'd like to introduce everyone to 'The Vredebergs'. A family of Cannibal Rednecks. Is it the apocalypse or do they just live on the fringes of society as we know it?

Either way you don't want to bump into these guys in the woods or you might end up their dinner and their banjo strings! The Vredebergs are a  LARP group from Sweden, these sculpts are a collaboration with the very talented Tobias Hadin. More of his concepts and creations can be found on instagram @antiprenor here's a convenient link; https://www.instagram.com/antiprenor

 Note: 'The Vredebergs' add ons were designed and sculpted by Murun Thornton.

It's the dawn of a new era of exploration for mankind, the 1950's are in full swing and man has made it to Mars... Only to be confronted by hideous monsters, what right do they have to our new world? They must be abolished! Charge up your laser pistol and send these abhorrent freaks to damnation and claim Mars for mankind, it's the right thing to do.

Goals

I'm looking to raise £2500 to get these greens into full production, this includes master moulds for 'Queen Vic's Plague of the Undead' set and 'Attack of the Space Lobster Chickens' set. Production moulds, cost of metal. A master mould exists for 'The Vredebergs' Family Miniatures; here are some examples of the quality of the castings I have been able to produce;

Successful

Thank you for taking the time to look at my project, I hope you decide to back my campaign :) If the Kickstarter is successful  the priority is that all backers will receive their miniatures in a timely fashion. Every contribution will help in these miniatures being available for purchase at a later date from my Etsy store, I also plan to expand upon all these ranges, adding more miniatures and some terrain/scenery elements. There are a world of miniatures I can add and am really looking forward to doing so. Space Vixens, Campy Aliens, a plethora of Zombies for Victoran London as well as some survivors/Zombie Hunters, and as for 'The Vredebergs' I haven't gotten around to Gran' Pa and Gran' Ma yet, she'll be cooking up a big 'ol pot of body parts for the family. I am open to suggestions for miniatures ideas too!

Thanks again for your time and contribution.

Risks and challenges

As with all things there are some potential hurdles to over come. The major one with this project will be getting good moulds that produce good clean castings. I plan to use a tried and tested mould maker that I have worked with before, I do not foresee this being an issue. I also plan to have the moulds made from silicone as opposed to the traditional vulcanized rubber to ensure the least amount of damage to the masters and a higher quality mould. This method is more expensive but the risk for an unsuccessful mould goes right down.

Another hurdle is the casting process itself, If successfully funded It's possible that production could run longer but in such an event I will notify all backers as to the progress and estimated delays.
