The Hordes of Chaos!!
Oldhammer style miniatures for tabletop gaming and painting!
I'm Paul and I'm the sculptor at Creative Sculpt Studio Ltd.
I started sculpting miniatures just over a year and a half ago. It was always a a childhood dream to make monsters and heroes, battling through dungeons and castle ruins, with huge amounts of magic being flung willy-nilly all over the place, with random (but fantastic) results!
To live in a world where one could ascend to Hero status, amassing riches and fame, or descend into the depths of the Nether worlds, and gain power through the Dark Gods and the many "blessings" they could bestow....
I love stories, and a lot of the things I like to sculpt come from the pictures I see in my head when I read and, more recently, started playing tabletop games, and coming up with scenarios. These led onto things being a bit more 3D with terrain and miniatures and painting and so here we are with some of my first sculpted 28mm miniatures (made last year) which I have finally decided to get cast.
I have decided to minimise risk and keep my first Kickstarter small, just four miniatures, as these will be easy and quick to cast. I have already got all the master casts of the Chaos Champions (of which there are fourteen) done and all that is needed is to make production moulds.
These have been made by Chris Nicholls at Macrocosm Miniatures and his mate Chris at Shed Games. Both are great guys and have been a good source of information on how to go about making this happen.
This is the Chaos War-band!
A band of miscreants and wrong'uns - mutated, armed to the teeth, and looking for plunder, mayhem, bloodshed and power!!
All war bands start with a leader...
..... As you can see I've tried to embody the spirit of old hammer into these miniatures and I hope I've succeeded!
All of them were made in my spare time, between commissions.
These are the first four Chaos Champions, of fourteen in total, to be released later on over this year and include: a Musician, a Standard Bearer, a BattleMage, and various other assortments of bad guys and girls with pistols, mutations and Demon weapons!
More will follow as I'm making time to now expand into my own ranges using my own ideas.....
I hope you will join me in the spread of Chaos....
ALL miniatures are supplied unpainted and without a base
Risks and challenges
I have tried to minimise any risks to the project by keeping it very small - the money is literally for paying for the production mould and some spins that have gone into making them as well as packaging for shipping to backers.
The due date for the miniatures to be delivered should be no longer than 2 months after the project ends and hopefully leaving more than enough time to get all the miniatures cast and shipped.
All postage costs will be added to pledges once they are ready to ship and after the project has finished.
