What will you do with your Marginalia?

Hark! Already, I hear thine reply "prithee, sir, what doest one with such strange figures?" Verily, the uses are multitudinous! To make thine small garden quaint and delightful. Perhaps yet, to decorate thine own monkish library. Or! Dare thee, adventurer, encounter such characters abroad in daring roleplay?

The Scenes

Byron has initially sculpted 3 Scenes from Medieval Marginalia.

Each Scene is made up of two metal cast miniatures

Rabbit and Dog Joust

 What else would your Rabbit be riding but a man snail - even the hare looks a little confused.

Knight vs Snail Rampant

Deer Snail and Crow Nun

Time for a Group Shot

 Perfect for a little succulent garden

In addition to tabletop wargames, silly role playing, or library decorations, our figures make great little decorations for your plants!

Stretch Goals

Starting at £2000 funding Byron will sculpt another scene. He will sculpt an additional scene for each £1000 beyond that. Additionally, he will sculpt an additional scene for each "Patron of the Arts" supporter.

 Go here to take our stretch goal survey! Help Byron decide what to sculpt next.

Stretch Goal 1 - Donkey Retainer warding off a Menacing Snail - Unlocked! - Our sculptor saw our backers' choice and just had to give it a go!

Stretch Goal 4 - A strange little person leading a piper rabbit - Locked

Stretch Goal 5 - a Cat-Snail - Locked

Notes

All miniatures are supplied unpainted.  These are not toys and may contain small amounts of lead so are unsuitable for children under 14.  All postage is charged via paypal invoice when they are ready for shipping

If we get many stretch goals delivery dates could be delayed while we get the minis sculpted 

Risks and challenges

The only risk is that if this goes very well the delivery dates could be delayed while Byron gets sculpting. The three initial scenes are ready to go into production.

    A True Patron of the Arts

    Having contributed enough for an entire stretch goal themselves, this patron receives one of each Scene AND may unilaterally decide the next marginalia image that is rendered (with some caveats - nothing larger than a horseman and the image must be an authentic illuminated manuscript from the medieval period)
