About this project
Versatile, Paintable and Just Plain Simple!
Designed to fit in with a wider variety of games, universes and roles, our miniatures use general themes present in all fantasy realms.
Having painted armies and competition miniatures for years, we believe the painting experience improves greatly with simpler designs. Miniatures focusing on stronger posing, fabrics and shapes allow the painter to paint more freely and explore more advanced methods more easily.
High-Detail sculptures look great in photos, but the extra detail can add considerably to painting time, and really complicate colour selection.
We want you to feel comfortable building, painting and playing with our products and not just have them sitting on your shelf staring at you, complaining about how crowded its getting, that the orc next to them smells, or that the ogre beat them and stole their treasure, again!

Dedicated To Our Work- Whats the $$ for?
The funds from this campaign will be put towards development of our studio artists as well as current and future products and games.
- Developing new concept art
- Allowing for more "study time" to incorporate new ideas and methods of creating stronger products
If we hit 250 Backers, we will unlock this 80mm Centaur BEAST as an ADD-ON!
*Please note that the size we list refers to base size (30mm, 40mm, 50mm) not the actual height of the miniature!
**To see examples of the artists' works click the pledge level graphics below for links to their websites!
All pledge levels may purchase Add-ons in addition to their pledge amount. Simply calculate the total of any/all miniatures and add-ons you'd like, and add that amount of $$ to your pledge!
30mm Miniatures- $15CAD
*Our standard miniatures
30mm++ Miniatures- $15CAD
*Please note, miniatures in this category may not suit your usual scale as they are sculpted as though they would be 6'4ft tall or taller, and so will feel considerably bigger than most normal miniatures.
40mm Miniatures- $17CAD
*These are essentially normal human sized, or large human sized characters that have wider stances or more detailed bases.
40mm++ MIniatures- $26CAD
*Please note, these miniatures are much larger/more massive than our normal 40mm characters, and thus cost much more to manufacture which is reflected in the price.
50mm Miniatures- $35CAD
*Medium size creatures
80mm Miniatures- $65CAD
*Medium Creatures with some larger elements or more detailed bases
James Wappel's Painting Pyramid DVD- "Shaded Basecoat"- $22CAD
To help get you guys started if you are needing some painting advice, we have included this wonderful DVD series by James Wappel in the Kickstarter Add-ons! You can click the graphic for a link to learn more :)
***Actual Resin Masters In photographs below. All miniatures will be cast in resin.
We are set up with USA fulfillment, which means cheaper shipping for our US backers, a savings of around 50%!
Kick it like a Minx!
Minx Studio is about infusing personality and passion into the miniature and battle game industry. With an emphasis on traditional art, we focus on building a stronger foundation of skills and knowledge which allows us to create more convincing characters and designs.
We've sculpted for Kickstarter projects by RAFM, Dungeon Crawler, and M & K Adventures. In addition, we are currently painting the studio box art for Soda Pop Miniatures- Relic Knights.
By meeting our goals with this project, we will be able to allocate more time to developing our own products, and really push the standards of sculpture.
We were gamers FIRST. Many sculptors and painters don't play games or can't find the time to. We do. We are gaming enthusiasts and game developers. But more importantly, we want to raise the bar for gaming miniatures and games in general.
Showing your support for our work helps fuel our passion further, and encourages us to work even harder to get you awesome stuff, sooner.
Share the passion for this awesome creative industry and help kick it... like a Minx!
Risks and challenges
Being a new company, we acknowledge the importance of delivering product in a timely manner, and staying in communication with our backers.
We have limited the primary funding levels to allow us to deliver the products sooner, and set us up for future development. We believe in a more gradual and stable growth to ensure that we have the production capacity and manpower to meet demands in good time.
In addition, all the starting miniatures have been moulded, and several stretch goals have been sculpted, while others are in progress as we speak. We wanted to make sure we didn't just have pretty concepts, but instead as much sculpted content and WiP as possible.
We are working with Valiant Enterprises, a very experienced manufacturer who has been involved in over 40 Kickstarter projects. We are confident in their estimates of production time and delivery.
We also have a location that will handle USA fulfillment, meaning cheaper shipping and faster delivery for our US neighbours.
The only potential issue will be if we achieve the final planned stretch goals. Some of the creatures may take a bit longer than anticipated to sculpt because they do have some very challenging elements to them.
Regardless, as we do all sculpting for this project in house, it means we will be able to keep you updated on progress of any and all sculptures!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
