WHO ARE WE!

Studio Miniatures have been producing highly detailed 28mm miniatures for the last 4 years. Our zombie horror range "Z-CLIPZ" is widely regarded as the best 28mm modern zombie range available on the market and we have experience and expertise in both traditional white metal miniatures and plastic injection moulded miniatures.

We work with the best company in the UK for white metal moulding and casting, they are used by most UK miniatures companies that do not do their own casting and offer the highest quality available.

Our sculptor Steve May has years of experience in the miniatures world. Having done freelance sculpting for companies like Forgeworld, Mongoose Publishing, Fenris Games, Orinoco Miniatures, Tsuba Miniatures, Otherworld Miniatures and Immortal Miniatures. 

You can see our existing ranges and miniatures at www.studiominiatures.com

WHY KICKSTARTER!

Like all gamer's we have interests in many different periods and conflicts, and just like every gamer we always want our minis RIGHT NOW! As we are a "young" company (a precocius four) and normally we release new miniatures and ranges in small batches over months or years, we would not be able to release an entire range in one go without great sites like Kickstarter.

THE PLAN!

Our aim is to release all the miniatures required for The Sikh Wars in one batch. Covering all of the basic troops types for both the British and Sikh armies with smaller and unusual troop types being covered within the Stretch Goals.

We have already started work on the basic infantry for both sides, creating armatures, dollies, equipment and weapons. This will allow us to expand the range very quickly during and hopefully on successful completion of our Kickstarter campaign. As we add to the miniatures available there will be options for changing not only your pledge level but the units contained within your pledge i.e. if we are able to unlock the cavalry units from the Stretch Goals you will have the option to exchange some of your Infantry Battalions for Cavalry Squadrons etc.

WHY SHOULD I GET INVOLVED!

As the campaign continues we will add more troop types as well as FREE miniatures for those above certain pledge levels. On successful (fingers crossed) completion of our campaign and once all pledges have been fulfilled we will make the miniatures available to the general public but at a slightly higher cost per mini, so now is the best time to buy in!

STRETCH GOALS!

We want to be able to add as much to the range as possible and give all you nice people as many free miniatures as we can. So with this in mind we will have as many stretch goals as we can squeeze in AND they will be at realistic levels.

£3500

Unlock the Sikh "Jinsi" Artillery crew. One set will be added FREE for every two Infantry Battalions in your pledge to everyone at "Lieutenant" level and above. Also available to everyone at £6.00 per set of 4 x miniatures.

Risks and challenges

We have factored in what we believe to be the appropriate time after the campaign finishes to allow our sculptor to finish any unlocked miniatures and for our mould making/casting company to be able to get the finished miniatures back to us. So short of us all being run over by a bus we do not believe there are many risks involved in our campaign, after all if our funding is unsuccessful no funds will be taken from our pledgers and we will just go into a corner somewhere and cry :)
