For the last six years we have ran a professional miniature painting studio, specializing in Horus Heresy and Warhammer 40,000 miniatures, but first and foremost old-school 80s and 90s metal miniatures - often known as “oldhammer” or “midhammer”. Since last year we have also ventured into old school, traditional tool sculpting.
The project has started after an annual meeting of old- and midhammer players, which took place in Katowice last year. As we returned, we have decided to start a challenge of assembling and painting a complete 5th edition Warhammer Fantasy Battle army each. I have taken up this challenge with the intent of assembling a halfling army. However, I had no miniatures for it and getting any aftermarket was impossible. That’s what made me pick up my tools and putty. The miniatures visible below are the seed of a whole halfling army, which will later include swan cavalry, a food wagon, a unit of housewives and many more, enabling you to create a complete, playable and gorgeous army. What you see here is just an appetizer!
The miniatures are sculpted by hand, we use putties like BeesPutty, Green Stuff and Magic Sculpt. We do not use modern tech in the sculpting process, as we wish for the sculpts to retain the style and soul of the 80s and 90s miniatures. As a backer of the project you will be able to choose the preferred casting material of your miniatures - either white metal or resin. All miniatures will be delivered unpainted. You can see below how our miniature creation flow looks, from a sketch design, through sculpting, all the way to the casting process.
You can back our project by choosing the set that suits you best or by adding any number of additional miniatures to it. You may also select several sets at once. Please remember that a set price does not include bases as well as shipment. Shipment costs will vary depending on the weight of the miniatures you purchase and the area to which we need to deliver them.

Risks and challenges
Everything that you already can see is almost ready for production and shipment. We currently have only 10 ready sets, a casting mould and the miniature designs. About 80% of the resources gathered in this campaign will be used to produce the existing miniatures, while the rest will cover the creation of new sculpts and paying the graphic artists.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
