A warm welcome to my Modular Dwarfs! Kickstarter!
Get a modular dwarf for every need! Or build a team of specialists or hire some dwarfs regiments!
*** see the last day additions (palisade sections) in the add ons section ***
In the beginning of 2018 I commisioned some modular dwarfs for my pleasure and now in this kickstarter i offer you my dwarfs in several variants.The primary goal of this campaign is to finance the molds to cast the dwarfs in different sizes and out of different materials.
This is my biggest kickstarter so far and i am working the first time with a professional design studio for the minis and a professional caster for casting the metal minis.
So if you see some interesting parts help me to get them produced for you.
Maybe bookmark the campaign and return later to see the additions that are about to come up while the campaign is running!
If you miss the STL part in this campaign let it be known that this will be perhaps a later campaign or i add it later as a new pledge option if we reach a certain funding level.
Short campaign overview
All started with a single dwarf. This is Grom Okmar commander of the hawksguards.
The hawksguard is a military force with regular soldiers and specialists.
Whenever an enemy threatens the dwarfen kingdom the hawksguards is the first line of defense. Grom and his specialist team moves out to scout the enemy and perform devastating strikes on the enemy forces.
So this kickstarter is devoted to Grom Okmar and his specialists.
You can get modular and posable 28mm dwarf specialists 3D printed with magnets as connectors with many parts to build a specialist force of a wide variety.
You can get a small selection of the specialist team of Grom Okmar as 15mm minis.These are massiv minis without seperate parts.
You can get Grom Okmar and his specialist team out of 28mm metal with many parts. This is the most important part of this campaign. If the campaign goes well there will be hawksguard regiment boxes to buy later on.
You can get some 70mm specialists out of ceramic and/or resin.
You can get a Grom Okmar out of foam as a garden dwarf in 280mm.
While the campaing is running it maybe that more options are added as i respond to the backers feedback. So if you demand a special addition maybe i can add this to the campaign.
So let's start and get into the details...
1. Grom Okmar's specialist dwarf - a highly modular 28mm scaled 3D resin printed dwarf (10 EUR each kit)
For every 10 EUR you pledge you get one of Grom Okmar's specialists 3D printed in resin. You can choose the parts after the campaign.
You can also add as many parts as you want for 2 EUR per part after the first full kit. So if you want to have a dwarf kit and 5 extra arms pledge 20 EUR plus postage.
Each model kit consists of:
1x head, 1x body, 1x legs (sitting or standing), 1x right arm, 1x left arm, 1x extra item (mug, pouch, sword or axe), 8x 2x2mm round neodym magnets.
The assembled model is fully posable because of the the neodym magnets used as joint or you can glue the parts into place.
Here you can see the parts that are possible at the moment:
Head parts can be assembled in several variants. You can add beards or a pilot glasses. The head with a socket on the top can be used to glue small symbols like animals, statues etc. on top.
The sitting position is for gunners in flying vehicles. I am working on air ships and heavy weaponry. You can also use them for a tavern scene.
All arms can be mirrored from right to left or vice versa. More versions will come in the future.
The shield arms are again modular. With the small connectors (ball or plate on the bottom left) on the arms you can attach all shields even from other manufacturers. More will come in the future. So e.g. the roman rectangular shield or other designs.
New parts from the roman dwarf and the crossbow dwarf add ons!
The parts are connected with 2x2mm round neodym magnets (8 are included in every kit).
Watcher of the realm
Ancestor ghost dwarfs:
With support structure (you have to cut the structure away and assemble the kit):
A small specialist team
From the workbench:
2. This is a fun package of 10 randomly choosen mini dwarfs (10 EUR each set)
It was just a proof of concept for the caster. And he did a great job! Look at the fingers of the metal dwarf!
3. Grom Okmar's specialist team - 10x 28mm scale metal dwarfs (45 EUR each set)
Get one of Grom Okmar's specialist teams of 10 highly modular 28mm scale metal dwarfs. With this kit you get enough parts to assembe 9 standing and one sitting specialist.
You get 2 bags of heads:
You get a bag of the shown shield left arms plus one random one:
You get a bag of these left arms:
You get a bag of 10 bodies, 1 sitting legs pair and 9 standing legs pairs:
The bodies will get some pins before mass production for an easy connection of the other body parts.
You get a bag of these right arms:
You get a bag of these right arms:
After the funding there will be all packs as addons available. If the funding goes very well there will be special packs for regiments. We will see if a demand for this is existing. I for myself look forward to a regiment of roman dwarfs...with pilum and shield. Leave me a comment on what you want to see!
Only a few examples:
4. Grom Okmar's specialists in 70mm (30 EUR each)
These were a test scenario for my FDM Printer. My masters are modular with magnets as joint and work exactly as the 3D resin printed versions in 28mm scale. But these are scaled up to 300%.
If there is some interest in these models i will cast the parts out of ceramic or resin. Cause of the higher weight these parts must be glued and will not use magnets.
You can choose one of the four designs in the picture above. Maybe i add some more options if the campaigns goes well. Possible are all parts shown in the part description in the 3D resin pledge.
Some pictures of the patrol in my garden:
5. Grom Okmar as a 280mm garden dwarf (99 EUR each)
This giant was made as a proof of concept with big 3D prints. But after he was finished and i was overwhelmed how good it looked i thought about sharing the experience to have gardens dwarfs.
He comes out of handcrafted foamed parts. The shown master will be molded and casted out of foam.I will add some rods as connectors so that he is posable. I will add a sword, a mug and a pouche in this kit. You can see them in the parts overview in the 3D printed dwarf further up.
If you want some other parts we must talk. Perhaps I can add them but maybe it will be 3D printed instead of foamed.

You can always add to the value of your pledge. Just increase your pledge amount to the sum of your choosen pledge plus postage plus the value of any wanted add on. You can tell me after the campaign for what the money should be used.
Something from my last kickstarters:
Since the postage depends on the weight of the ordered physical parts i charge the surplus postage after the campaign ends for all other countries but germany. In germany the postage will be 8 EUR for whatever you order. For europe there should be no additional postage over 15 EUR. For other countries outside europe this will be around 7 EUR per kilo payable via paypal. Sorry but that what DHL charges me.

Risks and challenges
This is a huge project for me. The first time i am working with a professional casting company. So i can't foresee all things but i think i made a fair contract and can deliver in time.
The main risk is the manual work for me if the interest in this project is very high. This might increase the delivery time.
Physical pledges will be shipped in the order of the pledges.
So far all my Kickstarters were delivered very fast. I want to keep it that way.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
