Satanic Panic Miniatures set out to produce affordable metal miniatures with lots of uses to the gaming tables of the world. By commissioning multi-part figures, I am  enabling gamers to build warbands or armies in which literally every model could be unique.

I wanted to be able to offer regiments which were easy to rank up but with a ridiculous amount of possible variations; much like a real unit would appear (yes I know these are Great Gnolls/Great Goblins but you know what I mean) with different helmets, looking left, right, up, down etc, or turning on the spot.

What's more, many of the figures can be armed with the missile weapons sprues so you can build units of advancing archers or crossbowmen, or mixed units of melee and missile weapons as rabble or skirmishers. The more you 'play' with the pieces, the more you'll understand the possibilities.

The modular approach means that I can continuously add optional parts to existing ranges. For example, a basic 3 figure pack has somewhere around 300 possible configurations from the parts supplied. If you consider all of the parts available, there are conservatively, around 10,000 possible variants - and that is without the posing possibilities.

I want to work with enthusiastic and talented sculptors with a proven track record, to bring modern reimaginings of classic old school miniatures. If you grew up in the 80s you'll certainly recognise where the inspiration for my models comes from. Satanic Panic Miniatures is not only reimagining the 'Golden Age Of Gaming', it's doing it in a bigger and better way than anyone has done previously.

For the Great Gnolls, the mighty Martin Buck was commissioned to sculpt the range, and has thrown himself into the fray with gusto. The first range of Great Gnoll infantry went down very well indeed.

This Kickstarter campaign is being run to get the models into production, using a trusted name in the industry. The greens are already sculpted and paid for, which means that you'll have your models faster than if I had to start from scratch. 

Previews of the sculpts on various forums have gone down really well and by polling prospective clients, I've been able to make tweaks here and there. I know that you can't please everyone, but I think I've hit a happy medium again with this range

Along the way as way I'll add bonus pledge rewards and when the target is reached it will unlock 'The Great Wizard' the mysterious mage from the heart of G'Normandy who created the Great Gnolls, seated on his throne reading book of great magic on it's ornate lectern. He's sculpted, but he'll only be made available if the target is reached at the end of the campaign.

I have a proven track record, delivering our first ever Kickstarter well within the promised timeframe, and aim to do that once again. 

The core rider set. Remember that there are another 8 head variants, loads of weapons and three shield types from the previous KS campaign.
The boars
The new heads (the final mouldings will be smaller of course) on the original infantry bodies

And, if we hit the target, the Great Wizard will be made available. As you can see, he is a brilliant reimagining of a classic model. He could be a human, elf or maybe a half orc... He's a wizard and he's great... 'Nuff said!

Risks and challenges

I have deliberately kept this a bare bones project because I want to get the models to you in as short a period as I possibly can. I have been in the industry for 30 years and the hobby for 40 in one way or another.

I know how frustrating it is when something you want to get your hands on takes longer than advertised, and so I have set realistic shipping dates for the rewards.

I am hands-on and because the greens are already in existence, I merely need to get them to the mould maker and cast up. Then, it's a case of packing and shipping to the ends of the Earth.

I can see no unsurmountable challenges and by working with trusted names in the industry, I think any risks have been effectively negated. As long as I take care in picking and packing your rewards, everything should go swimmingly.

What I will not do, is promise you lots of free stuff that gets in the way of getting the models you want, out to you.

    The Custom Package

    This pledge level allows you to choose the packs you want. Simply pledge £15 for each pack of 3 cavalry (or the Great Wizard, if we unlock him) or £9 per infantry pack.

    PLEASE NOTE: The postage quoted will cover you for up to 10 packs.

    You can add as many as you like. For 11 or more packs, add £12 for Australia, Canada or the U.S, £4 for the UK and £9 for Europe. This will be the maximum postage you will be charged.

    So, if you were in Canada and wanted 10 packs of infantry (£9 each), 10 packs of Cavalry and 1 Great Wizard (£15) you'd need to pledge £90+£150+£15+£12 extra for postage for a pledge total of £267.
