Help raise Velrath, Queen of the Damned, and her army of Vampire Heroes and Undead. Each 28 mm white metal miniature was sculpted by renowned artists Jason Wiebe, Bobby Jackson and Patrick Keith. 

In addition to the superior quality, design, and materials used to produce these figures, Tomb Guardians also offers a 5 year guarantee on every miniature.   If your miniature breaks it will be replaced for free!



"I absolutely love the quality of Tomb Guardians Miniatures. The sculpts are top notch from some of the worlds best sculptors, good quality materials are used, the casts come out beautiful!” (Lyn Stahl, Metalhead Minis)

"I received my Tomb Guardian Dwarves and they are truly the best miniature molds I have ever seen. The detail is exceptional. I'm looking forward to further factions." (Scott H. in Marion, OH)

"I have bought miniatures from several different manufactures, plastic and metal. I personally like metal models the best. I was blown away with the detail and quality of the tombs guardians models. There was virtually zero prep work required prior to priming! The level of detail and crispness throughout the model is unmatched. These will be a staple in my collection moving forward." (The Redbeard Painter)

"I purchased the Tomb Guardians Dwarven Miniatures set during their Kickstarter campaign.  These arrived last week, and they are excellent. Well sculpted, well proportioned. The Paladin and Swordsman appear a second away from dealing some serious damage, and the female Warriors are outstanding! My favorite of the group is Thrarbuk Deepmore, the Dwarven King, in his Dragon Scale Cloak. A great line of figures. I am getting my palette ready now..." (Barry in Vancouver) 

Based on our experience with Fortress Minis, while making our current miniatures, this is how the production process for 'Queen of the Damned: Velrath's Vampires' should proceed:

  •  April: Tomb Guardians receives money from Kickstarter
  •  May-August: Fortress Minis makes masters and molds
  •  September: Production
  •  October: Delivery

Risks and challenges

At Tomb Guardians, we have experience in designing, production and distribution of our miniatures.

We are fortunate that our design portion of the project has been completed and master of each miniature have been created. However the production molds, production and distribution portion of this project has not.

We are confident about the delivery of these miniatures and see no risk in that area - we have accumulated vast experience working on other miniatures. The only risk factor, which can always happen, is a delay in delivery due to unforeseen circumstances.
