This campaign is to bring to production gaming miniatures of H P Lovecraft and Einstein.  They're traditionally sculpted by myself.  I'm currently building towards a large fantasy themed project, but these two don't fit into the genre. So rather than have them sitting around, I decided to launch a small and quick Kickstarter to fund their casting costs and hopefully they will see their way into your RPGs, pulp gaming or collections.

The miniatures are ready to be cast and this project is to fund the moulding cost. Chris at Macrocosm Miniatures is an experienced metal caster and the master casting will be complete before the campaign finishes, so I will soon have metal casts to show you in an update. Then the production casting will commence after I've received the details of your pledges.

You will receive a unique coupon code equal to your pledge amount, roughly two weeks after the campaign finishes. I'll provide instructions on how to complete your order via Kickstarter messages and a link to my online store. You will also have the opportunity to add to your pledge from my existing ranges, but this may increase the postage charge if it's a large order.

I charge a flat rate postage of £2 in the UK and £4 rest of the World. This is collected after the campaign finishes via the pledge manager. 

 They will eventually become part of my Bears Head Miniatures range, which includes a number of character sculpts, sci-fi  and fantasy themed miniatures. 

The metal miniature will come unpainted and supplied with a round plastic base.

The miniatures...



 H P Lovecraft with a Star Spawn Puppy.

This is my third Lovecraft sculpt. I wanted to update the sculpt as the first version is looking a bit dated. He has a Star Spawn puppy at his side. I thought it'd be a fun sidekick for him.

If the campaign funds, then I'll offer stretch goals. Including a version without the Star Spawn Puppy, replacing it with a cane and also a set of four individual Star Spawn Puppies, because that sounds like too much fun. 

Einstein. All good Pulp games have a need for good scientific solutions, whether that's for a time machine or a laser gun. This guy will help you out. Or maybe he needs rescuing from a sinister group, looking to enslave the human race!


Stretch Goals.

1. Alternative Lovecraft Sculpt, with a cane instead of a Star Spawn Puppy £4. UNLOCKED.

Risks and challenges

This is my sixth Kickstarter project. The sculpting is already complete and the miniatures will be master cast before it finishes. The production molding will then start once I know the number of casts required, which will be collected approximately two weeks after the campaign finishes and the backer details are available to me.
I'll send out the orders to the backers via Royal Mail. You'll be notified by email when the miniatures are dispatched.
To ensure you receive your miniatures in good time, please complete the reward survey promptly, this will be available to complete at my Bears Head Miniatures webstore, approximately two weeks after the campaign finishes.
I'll issue a unique voucher equal to your pledge, so you can confirm your order from my web store. Or email me directly at s_p.hynes@ntlworld.com with your details.
You will have the opportunity to add to your order from the rest of my Bears Head Miniatures range.
Postage is a flat rate of £2 in the UK or £4 Rest of the World. Collected after the campaign finishes when you complete your order via my online store.
Your welcome to add to your order from my existing ranges, when you complete your pledge, this may increase the postage rate for large orders.
