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 gale force winds.

Shipping will be charged after the Kickstarter based on the actual costs. This will be collected via the pledge manager after the campaign ends. Calculating shipping this way is fairer to all backers and easier for me to work out. By not including shipping in the pledge level, it also means I can concentrate on the stretch goals! As a rough estimate, the basic unit pledge level will cost: UK £3.95, EU £8.20, USA and Canada £9.75, Australia and New Zealand £10.05. 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 will also be given, 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 the company HQ and take possession of your goodies for free!
Risks and challenges
Following our successful Kickstarters a lot has been learnt, what works has been kept, and new ideas added. Keeping it small and simple is key to the smooth running of the Diehard Miniatures KS. So we have again tried to complete as much of the sculpts and master moulding as we can before launch. I've have already had our metal casters set aside casting time so we can quickly get a head start on production as this campaign is underway. I 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
