Hello Comrade, welcome to War in Glorantha. Come right on in.

I have been playing Runequest and wargaming in the world of Glorantha for over 30 years. When I was younger, I would go every week to the games shop to see if "anything new for Runequest" was in. Finally I gave up waiting and started to sort things myself. Back in 2011 I set up Mad Knight Castings, but pressures of work meant it never got going properly and I had to shut things down in 2013. Now I have the time I want to finish the job I started
This is hopefully the first of many small figure Kickstarters. Later in the year I will be releasing Glorantha skirmish rules, which are currently being playtested.

Most of the Trollkin and Scorpionmen figures in the range were sculpted by the late Steve Trickett. These figures only made it to the metal master stage. Bob Soutar has sculpted the bodies for Augustus and Barnard.  This kickstarter enables the manufacture of production molds for the figures. 

I'd like to give you a heads up on the figures

Trollkin Raiders

This is my favorite sculpt of all time. It's Neepson Leadheart, Mantis rider and leader of the Trollkin raiders. Neepson and his motley crew raid Tarsh, Dragon Pass, Dagori Inkarth and sometimes into Prax itself. The full backstory of Neepson, his patron and RQG stats and scenario ideas for him and his team are provided in pdf format with the figures.

Neepson is accompanied by his trollkin raiders, an elite, and not so elite, bunch of trollkin.

The basic reward comes with 20 assorted trollkin, but if you want extra Trollkin, you can buy them as an add on for £9 for 10 kin.

Scorpionmen Questors.

Steve just loved sculpting monsters, and here are his Scorpionmen.

The scorps are based around the leadership of Queen Bogotrix, who was a Mistress Race Troll Devoured by Bagog in the Godtime. For the first 1000 years of her life Bogotrix was very, very insane, but all that has changed now. Really it has. She has been killed many times, but always manages to return to hunt down her killers. The full backstory of Bogotrix and her band will be available as a pdf download with the figures along with suggested stats and scenario ideas for RQG.


The basic reward consists of Three Scorpionmen, and the broo "Cuthbert"

Assembly and Painting of Miniatures

Please note that all miniatures are supplied unpainted and the Mantis and Scorpionmen require assembly.

I am not selling painted miniatures in this Kickstarter, but I am happy to let you have details of the three painters who have done work for me. I can ship directly to a painter if you wish. 

Shipping

At  present we have set up shipping costs on Kickstarter for the UK, rest of the EU, Australia, Canada and the USA. If you live somewhere else, please get in touch and we will look at shipping costs for you. Please note if you have pledged for any miniatures there is no additional postage charge for the add-ons. However if you pledge for the Card Wars only AND wish to buy add on miniatures you will need to add postage costs.

Risks and challenges

I have identified three risks with the project. This is what they are and what I have done to mitigate these risks..
1. Glorantha copyright. RuneQuest and Glorantha are the registered trademarks of Moon Design Publications, and are used here under official license. Some of the names, descriptions, and depictions used are derived from works copyrighted by and include trademarks owned by Moon Design Publications, and are used here with Moon Design's permission. For more about RuneQuest and Glorantha please see www.chaosium.com. who own the Intellectual Property rights to the world of Glorantha.
2. Sculpting delays. All figures offered in this project have already been sculpted.
3. Mold making and casting delays. I use a reputable third party manufacturer, and their current lead times are 3-4 weeks.
