We are proud to present the first two miniatures from our Ouroboros Tales range, the Shaman and the Brave. These two 54mm scale miniatures were sculpted by the very talented Denis Soul and are cast in high quality resin by the renowed Grx Créations.
Ouroboros Miniatures is a relatively new company specialising in high quality large scale resin miniatures for painters and collectors. We have been preparing several ranges for quite some time now and could really use your help to bring some of these onto the market.
Producing high quality large scale resin miniatures like the Shaman and the Brave is quite expensive. This Kickstarter, with your help, makes sure we can release them sooner than if we would have done so through the regular channels!
This Kickstarter is for two miniatures. The orc Shaman and the Brave. ''Only two miniatures you might ask?'' Yes 'only' for two miniatures...
Because it is our first campaign we want to keep things smooth and simple. What you see is what you get! So no stretch goals for additional miniatures or other distractions! We do have a few nice stretch goals planned. One stretch goal will be available to every backer regardless of what they pledge. Another stretch goal will be for all backers that pledge for the combo pack!
It might not be what you are used to but it is the fairest we can offer. We are a startup company and cannot promise what we cannot deliver.
We would rather do a relatively short and (hopefully!) successful campaign, which will be delivered quickly. Opposed to one that is bogged down by all sorts of delays because we overpromised. I hope and think you can understand that point of view.
Anyway, without further ado. The miniatures in question!
First up is the Brave. A fierce warrior at heart who scours the lands to provide for the tribe, and always on the lookout for signs of danger. Willing and eager to engage if needed!
And seen here without his croc hat on!
As mentioned these are 54mm scale miniatures. 54mm being the size of a regular human being (usually 54mm to eye level). Now these are orcs.... And orcs can be BIG! Below you can see the sizes of these brutes. The Shaman has a 70mm armature and even while hunched down reaches roughly 53mm in height!
The caster we use, Grx Créations from France, is one of the best in the business and they do casting work for quite a number of well known companies. The level of quality is so high that we don't expect any issues at all except for maybe some minor cleaning.
There are only 3 sorts of Pledges in this campaign. One for the Shaman, one for the Brave and one for the both of them.
Please note that shipping costs will be charged after the Kickstarter. The packages will be shipped from the Netherlands and include Track & Trace, signed for delivery and they will also be insured.
Flat rate shipping costs are:
- EU €10,-
- USA €10,-
- ROW €15,-
The company who will handle the shipping has given us very fair rates, especially considering what is included in the price. There may be a slight delay in packages going out to backers but we don't foresee any issues, but would just like to add this to be as realistic as we can. Once the shipping company has your parcels it is out of our control. However we will do everything possible to fulfill this Kickstarter on time.
Important! Do not add the shipping costs to your pledge!
I would like to thank some people who's help and hard work has made it possible for me to start realising my dreams!

Sharing & Social Media!
One last thing which is very important! If you want to help us fund then please take a moment to share the project! You can do this by sharing the campaign on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Google+, your blog, forums and on any other Social media you might know! Tell your friends who might be interested and with your help we can make this project as successful as possible, ensuring we can make many more wonderful miniatures in the near future!

Risks and challenges
The miniatures have already been sculpted and the first master castings have been made and shipped to our caster. Depending on how many we need, I don't think the casting will take more than 6-8 weeks. After that it is in our hands. Packaging won't take long and we have a reliable shipping company who does the distribution. This gives me confidence that we will be able to deliver well within the set delivery estimate!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
