The Elven Lords is our second Kickstarter after the success of Reichguard Knights. All desing, sculpture and molding work is already completed. We are now ready to take your orders and start manufacturing. But, if the project is all but finished, what is the funding for?
Our aim is to be able to further develop our range of miniatures. We have made a great many efforts and spent a lot of money on The Elven Lords, so we really need the project to succeed.
We need your hel so that LastSword Miniatures can keep working
How we work
For wargamers like ourselves it's not easy to operate as a company, not even one such small as ours. Since the beginning up to the present day, we have been learning a lot of hard lessons on how to develop wargaming miniatures projects.
The Kneecap system of our miniatures allows us to position them in multiple ways. In addition, with the use of independent shoulder pads, the joints between the pieces are completely covered.
Our plastic resin is flexible enough to prevent miniatures from being damaged by bending, hitting or accidentally dropping them.
It is also very easy to glue it with cyanocrylate. All you need is a sharp modeling blade to remove the mold lines.
Thanks to its surface, the plastic resin offers a very good adherence to the paint, which facilitates this process
When you have hundreds of ideas banging in your head, it is always best to draw a sketch. This is the first step to every project. Sculping the miniature with green putty or in 3D is the second step. Finally, all that remains is to make the miniature... it seems so simple, when you say that.
This whole process takes a lot of time and it is normal for the final design to deviate slightly from the previous steps.
Furthemore, the Elven Lords' miniatures have no problem fitting into ranks and regiments. They will fit perfectly, even at an angle or medium angle.
3d sculpting allows to us design multipose figures easily than hand sculpt techique. Our bits are interchangeable, so you can use archers bodies, with spearmen arms, or heads.
Besides, Elven Lords haven't any problem while you are basing a regiment. Our figures fit really good in ranks without any problem. Even you can pose them straight or half turned.
Our figures are 32mm models, from the feet to the eyes. Are they compatible with others companies models?
Would you like to make a light spearman or a heavy archer? You can do it!
The elves is a powelful race. But it was not always in this way, elven race has grown like a tree from the ground to the sky.
Beyond the secrets of fire and crafting, wind and sailing, soul and healing elves had knonw the secret of the magic, the way to use the flow of trees for their own purposes.
Elven race have a dream, and that dream is can see the stars in the sky as an equal. And like a star, can watch the world under their feet.
Nowadays elven roots piercing beneath the surface, and its leafs caress the sky. Are they getting their dream?
"The stars do not govern our lives; the elves rule the world, and all nations under its grace. Elves govern their own lives. Fate is everything for the world, and we are fate incarnate".
Elf Prince is a 32mm multi-part metal figure.
"Beyond the earth and the sea. Beyond the sea and the sky. And beyond the sky, the stars. From the three we learned how to grow from the earth to the skies.
"Now, we don't have to look up to see the stars".
Elf mage is a 32mm multi-part metal figure.
"We are the elves, the kin that rule the destiny of the world. Our spears are the manifest will of the people who stand among the stars".
Elven spearmen are multi-part and multi-pose miniatures of plastic resin in 32mm. Thanks to the kneecap system you can assemble them in the pose of your choice and hide the joints with the shoulder pads.
"We watch the world as we watch the stars. Our arrows strike at the world like lightning".
Elven archers are multi-part and multi-pose miniatures of plastic resin in 32mm. Thanks to the kneecap system you can assemble them in the pose of your choice and hide the joints with the shoulder pads.

We have been sculpting and painting new scenery pieces since our first Kickstarter. Our new products are the forest, The barrels, The pedestals and The fountain!
All we need to create our unique scenery is a little bit of Super Sculpey or green putty and some modeling tools. We model and manyfacture our own scenery using polyurethane resin.
Now we have extra scenery pieces!
Remember that our scenery is designed to be use on 28-32mm wargames.
We want to offer you high quality, but occasionally there may be some bubbles. Don't worry, if you are not satisfied with our product, we will replace it.

This is not tge first Elven Lords kickstarter campaign. The first one took place in September and we have to cancel it because it was not working our well.
The success of this project is very important to us. We have invested all our money in these miniatures and we can not afford to keep developing new ones if we do not reach our goals in this campaign.
What if the campaign is a success?
This kickstarter is the first step for Elven Lords range. We would like to develope a full Elven army.
Our next project would be Dragon guards with two-handed swords (Sword Masters) or great axe (Lion Guards). We have already started worlkng on the concepts. So we can show you what out figures would look like.
The team at LastSword Miniatures is not very large, but we are as excited as th first day, although with a few more battle scars.
Although Asdarel and Comi are the ones who make this operation work, we could not have done it without the encouragement and support from all the fans and our friends
Miniatures, reviews, work in progress, painting job, sceneries, and over all photograpic work have become LastSword, strong enough to bring to you today Elven Lords project.
Asdarel. He is the mastermind and the reason why all that exists. He has designed LastSword Miniatures. Besides, he paints the figures and sceneries that we show on the blog and take all the pictures.
Comi. He is fully engaged on a continuous learning process, making, moulding and crafting scenery. He translates each post of the blog (doing his best) and post it on the internet.
James and Lily Potter, for their sacrifices!
To everyone who follows our blog
To all the backers of our first kickstarter.
To Pedro and all the guys from GT Studio for their help in our darkest times.
Thank you all for being with us!
Risks and challenges
Before our first succes kickstarter, the risk is minimal!
Our figures have already been sculpted. The master moulds are already done too. If this project is founded, we can immediately initiate creation of the production moulds, so that we will be able to commence the initial production after completion of the Kickstarter.
We expect the first miniatures to be delivered six to eight weeks following completion of the campaign. This means that you may already receive your figures as early as january 2018 at the latest.
In any case, we will continuously publish updates on progress and project steps and milestone
