About


Hi Everyone, It's Roj of Moonkraft Games, I have been a sculptor, model maker and scratch builder since the early nineties, I admit it I am a bit of a resin junkie. My brain is constantly scratchbuilding even when my hands aren't. 

I have had 2 successful kickstarters so far and I'm raring to go on the 3rd.

I am looking to extend my existing range of 28mm terrain by adding to my defence hardware. 1st off the blocks is my new Orc style turrets.

These come with a selection of weapon systems and sights, (MORE DAKKA!!!!) all weapons are modular and interchangable, I know what you are thinking, hmmm magnets and you'd be right these will be perfect for such things (although I will leave that bit to you).

I am a miniature painter and gamer and the addition of good terrain makes a game for me.


I have created 2 distinct turret types, but these can be configured is so many ways I don't even want to work it out.  The larger turret also can be used front to back or back to front So if you want more than two they won't all look the same. I also have made these available as turret only options (no base), this is for those of you that will be mounting these on a vehicle or scrap tank, you could even mount these on large creatures if your modelling skills are up to it.

I make mainly bases and have paved bases, lava bases etc. along with various bits of terrain in my range already, check out www.moonkraftgames.com to see what I already do.

Moonkraft is a fairly new start up and I am looking to add many many more goodies to what I already sell. I have a brain overflowing with ideas, the only trouble is deciding which to do 1st. 

I need to raise just £250 for the moulding costs to produce both turret types and the weapon selction, I have already made prototype moulds but these funds will allow me to make production moulds.

I do things the old fashioned way, no 3D printing or computer software, I build and sculpt, then I make moulds, then I cast. If necessary there may be a 2nd mould made to improve casting after any adjustments have been made, but this is a rarity as I am an old hand at the process.    

Postage. We will be shipping the set out as soon as the funds come in and the prices are set to the following 3 zones: UK,  Europe & Rest of World. Prices are based on Royal Mail to calculate the cost.

Risks and challenges

Well as you can see from the pictures the prototype moulds have already been made and work lovely, I just need to make production moulds so I can produce in higher numbers.
  I have been making moulds and casting resin for years and have modelled these in a way that they should be easy to cast and I am fully set up with a lovely (but noisy) vacuum chamber and am confident that it will be easy to do a great job. Resin casting really is my bread and butter it’s what I do.
  I will be using Royal Mail to ship the sets out to backers I have only ever had 1 issue with deliveries before and that was soon rectified. 


   Obviously if the project gets really popular there might be slight delays in shipping due to workload but it will really have to go ballistic for it to be too much to handle & I don't expect that to be the case.
