It’s no secret by now that I am a huge supporter of UK based companies and there is none that I look on more favourably than Otherworld Miniatures. Otherworld has some of the finest D&D monster sculpts available and the quality of the products and customer service is unbeatable.
So when Richard Scott announced that he would be crowd funding his latest releases I just had to get in on it. Otherworld is producing a series of 48 new miniatures (plus bonuses for the highest level supporters) which will feature miniatures for all the major archetype Player Characters in the D&D worlds. Check out some of the preview art below…
Here is a description of the range In Richard’s own words:
“Since 2006, Otherworld Miniatures has been producing 28mm fantasy miniatures for gamers, painters and collectors, inspired by the iconic imagery of the early roleplaying games. So far, we have just made the monsters, and with a range of nearly 400 creatures in our catalogue, we think that the time has come to introduce some player character models.
So, we have just launched a new crowd-funding campaign at Indiegogo and with the help of our backers, we plan to release a boxed set of 12 human male adventurers, quickly followed by sets of demi-humans, female adventurers and hirelings & henchmen. The range of boxed sets will be complemented by individual blister-packs featuring variant models with different armour, weapon and equipment options.
The figures will be sculpted by a variety of talented sculptors, including Kevin Adams and Patrick Keith, with others joining the project later. The miniatures will depict archetypal fantasy adventurers, wearing practical clothing and armour and carrying realistic weapons and equipment. They will be posed for exploration, not combat, so they’ll look great used to depict an adventuring party in ‘marching order’.
And these characters won’t be muscle-bound superheroes waving Vorpal Swords in the air - they’ll be grim-faced dungeoneers, a little bit down on their luck, and ready for action in the deepest, darkest dungeons!”
So, if you enjoy D&D or just 28mm gaming in general then go and check these minis out and back the campaign. You can see loads of examples of Otherworld’s fine miniatures on their site or you can see ones painted specifically by me by following this link!
