About this project

Welcome to M&K Adventures - Anime Miniatures

M&K Adventures is a new company that creates original Anime characters sculpted in 28mm scale and cast in Lead-Free Pewter.  We have come to Kickstarter to use the crowd funding platform to help us launch our vision.

Our vision is to provide high quality miniatures to your tabletop, while providing excellent customer service along the way.  We strive for the highest quality in all steps of the process.


Who is M&K Adventures?

Our names are Mark & Kimberly Norton. We are the two adventurers who founded M&K Adventures.  We decided to combine our interests with our business backgrounds to create a fun and exciting miniatures company.  Mark has a degree in Business/Accounting from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo and Kimberly has a degree in Business/Management from San Jose State University. We have a combined total of 35 years of Business experience.

We have been lucky to work with some wonderful artists and sculptors, like Sandra Garrity, Hector (Hec) Moran, Minx Studio, Valerie A. Ryan, Bryan Golden and many more.  We strive to work with the best sculptors and artists from around the world.  All casting of our miniatures will be done in the United States of America. 

Our Initial Funding Goal

We have set our goal at $7,895.00.  This goal will cover the molding costs needed to produce the initial eight (8) figures.  This is not a teaser goal. The costs of the artwork and sculpting for these initial figures have already been covered by the owners.
