 Tim Prow has over 22 years experience as a professional miniature sculptor. Starting out at Games Workshop as miniature painter on the Eavy Metal Team, he was first introduced to sculpting, there he learnt his craft, and never looked back.Tim works as a freelance sculptor primarily but has worked in house for both Ral Partha and Wizkids. Some of his more recent work has seen him producing for Mantic, Reaper, Mierce, Avatars of War and Fenris Games. He has also sculpted for toy companies outside of the gaming industry and produced figures for licensed properties such as Marvel, DC, and Yu-Gi-Oh! GX to name a few.

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.

Drew Williams has been sculpting miniatures professionally for over seventeen years. Graduated from Maryland Institute College of Art in 1996 and the Academy of Art University in 2009, Drew applies his knowledge of maquette sculpture, ecorche, comparative anatomy, and creature design, to his work in the miniatures field. Besides toy, gift-ware, and novelty businesses, he has also worked as a freelancer for numerous miniatures businesses big and small over the years, including Wizkids, Reaper, and Privateer Press.

Richard Luong has 10 years of experience in video games and illustration. He has worked as a concept artist and illustrator creating art for games such as Cthulhu Wars the board game. He now works as a freelance artist through his website: Tentacles and Teeth.

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.
