The end of the year rolls on apace. The nights draw in, the rain and snow descends and the fields lie barren and empty. But here is good cheer! Here are the mummers to recount the tale of the winter and herald the new year with the hope of renewal and a bounteous harvest to follow! Awake all! Arise, take up your tankards and witness!
This is a little campaign to fund the moulds for a set of four seasonal miniatures from English folklore. Festive folk from a bygone era but who can still be seen in traditional customs across the country. They're great for adding unique characters to a wintery RPG or wargame. Unfortunately you won't have them for this Christmas, but they'll be with you in plenty of time to paint up for next year!
Each miniature is approximately 28mm toe to top of head and will be cast in lead pewter by the experts at Macrocosm. You can pledge for them as single figures or as a complete set of 4.
Hold on, didn't you just have a Kickstarter?
Why yes we did. These four were intended for inclusion in the Goblignomic Wars Kickstarter, but we felt they didn't fit thematically and would be better as a little extra Kickstarter afterwards. If you've backed the Goblignomic Wars this will be fulfilled at the same time and can be easily packed and posted together.
Risks and challenges
Oakbound Studio is no stranger to Kickstarter, or to producing miniatures. We have 5 years' experience as a miniatures manufacturer and decades of hobby time behind that. We have worked successfully with Macrocosm Miniatures who are doing the casting for this project, you may recognise them from many other fun kickstarters that have been successful in recent years. We recognise, of course, that with the best intentions things can go awry and will let you know as soon as we do if there is a hiccup with production.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
