Welcome to Monstrous Lexicon - Series 1 Kickstarter. This is a joint project between Bears Head Miniatures, Arcane Library and The Pickled Dragon.  The Monstrous Lexicon is a huge collection of original monsters as well as four new playable races for the 5th edition of the world's greatest role-playing game and this project is the start of a series to bring the creatures form the pages of the Lexicon to your gaming tables or collections. There are also some creatures and characters that are outside of the manual, but I think they compliment the range and will find a home in your games. The miniatures are 28mm scale.

The miniatures are traditionally sculpted by hand and will be cast in metal or resin, as detailed in their descriptions. Supplied unpainted with a plastic base as appropriate.

You can pick up a physical or digital copy of The Monstrous Lexicon from the links below, via Amazon or Drive Thru RPG. 

 Amazon USA 

 Amazon UK 

 Drive Thru RPG (Digital copy) 

The miniatures are sculpted and ready to be cast, this project is to fund the production cost. Chris at Macrocosm Miniatures is an experienced metal caster and the master casting will be complete before the campaign finishes, I will 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 can pledge by selecting one of the reward tiers given. If you require a selection of miniatures, then adjust your pledge total to reflect the total cost of the miniatures you want.

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.

Postage starts at £2 in the UK and £4 rest of the World for 1-2 miniatures and a flat rate of £4 and £6 for 3+ miniatures. This is collected after the campaign finishes via the pledge manager.

The profits, after Kickstarter, casting and packaging fees are accounted for will be shared between Bears Head Miniatures and The Pickled Dragon.

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

Now lets have a look at the miniatures...
