More AncientHammer than OldHammer. 35yrs of creative input in the Hobby Games industry has left it’s mark. While Chaz still has most of his teeth everything else has been sold off to various demons/deities as part exchange. Warhammer, Warhammer 40K, Warmachine are just a few of the myriad brands that he has contributed to. He now shares his life with Tracey, 6 cats, 32 chickens and 6 months of galeforce winds. Do not approach if spotted – has been known to bite.

We will charge shipping after the Kickstarter based on the actual costs. This will be collected via our pledge manager after the campaign ends.
Calculating shipping this way is fairer to all backers and easier for us to work out. By not including shipping in the pledge level, it also means we can concentrate on the stretch goals!
As a rough estimate, the basic Starter, Dynamic Duo and Gamer pledge levels will cost: UK £3.90, EU £8.20, USA and Canada £8.80, Australia and New Zealand £9. Shipping for the rest of the world will be calculated on a country by country basis. This may increase or decrease based on the quantity of stretch goals we might unlock. All parcels are tracked and insured. Untracked prices may be requested, but any parcel lost is at the backers risk. If you have any questions, please ask away, we are only too happy to help!
Pick Up: If you live in and around Nottingham (UK) and want to save on shipping you can pop in to our offices and take possession of your goodies for free!
Risks and challenges
The biggest challenge we face is getting the backer rewards shipped in a timely and affordable fashion. We want to exceed expectations on this our first Kickstarter project. So to support this goal, we have already completed almost all of the sculpting for the funding level, and master molding on these miniatures is well underway. We have already had our metal casters set aside casting and packing time so we can quickly get a head start on production as this campaign is underway. We will keep our backers in the loop with frequent updates throughout the run of this new Kickstarter project. All of our production and packing/shipping will take place in Nottingham, England, home to possibly the worlds largest miniatures manufacturing hub.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
Diehard has designed a range of figures based on 28mm scale. The miniatures should sit well with both the old scale 28mm figures of Games Workshops ranges from the late 80's and early 90's, as well as more recent ranges of figures. We didn't want to slip into the heroic 28mm scale, but our figures do have 1-2mm height raise. See in 'Updates' for a comparison shot.
Yes you can. We have designed the pricing so one folds into another, so for example; 2 Familiars are worth 1 Warrior/Wizard, and 2 Warriors/Wizards are worth 1 Monster.
No, once the orders have been processed and pledges are shipped, this figure will no longer be available. We wanted to do something special for this our first KS, and as a thank you to our backers we have produced a Limited Edition figure that will only be available during the Kickstarter. So anyone wanting this figure will either have to make it part of their Pledge, or add it as an Add On.
This is something we have heard a lot, and we'd like to help. You can make a £1 pledge now, and when the Pledge Manager goes live after the campaign has ended you can add more funds to get a higher pledge and any add-ons you'd like.
Yes you can. We will be in touch once the campaign ends, and give you the option to add to your pledge. The cut off point for adding to your order and payments will be January 31st. As of February 1st orders will start to be processed, ready to be shipped.
