Lancer Miniatures running Fantasy Orcs Kickstarter

Lancer Miniatures has launched a Kickstarter campaign to produce a line of 28mm fantasy Orcs.



From the campaign:

A new range of 20 different poses in the classic style of the Orcs. They will be cast in metal and will be slota based to fit in with most fantasy armies, and will come with the plastic base, sword and shield armed for the first batch designed by the talented Mr Baker who has been making figures for me for five years. Fantasy is his first love, and he is keen to start this project. I already have a small lizard range, but Orcs is what he wants to make, and I want to add Orcs to my range as I need them for my own army, so if there is enough interest, he will start straight away. If this works then spear armed and 2 handed weapons will follow. All figures are made in house ie I have facilities to make moulds and cast figures, so no delays I can crack on as soon as Greens arrive.

    Does “classic” now mean “Games Workshop”? I am pretty sure I’ve seen this mini somewhere before…

      You’re pretty sure and so that is enough to impugn the reputation of a company? Unless you have something akin to proof maybe you might want to hold off on the accusations.

    With only this one sculpt and not even any artwork to show what others may look like, this campaign is going to struggle. Mini does look nice though.

      Updates and the KS page have several new sculpts and some greens of shields

  • elril

    I am not saying it is a recasting. I am saying that it looks like 20 year old GW orcs.

  • malwych

    You’re absolutely right. And the new sculpts on the KS page look remarkably similar to the first one. Which looks remarkably similar to the GW Orcs we’ve seen since Heroquest.

  • To the first question no you wont have seen him before, he was made last week, there is no way I would risk pirating GW stuff and risk losing my entire business, so forget about that, but what I have asked Martin to do is make Orcs in a similar style so you can mix them in with a GW orcs. They will be made in metal because that is the medium I work in, and they will be cheaper than GW because I can do that.
    I should have more figures made by next week including hopefully command, but I have got him working flat out as it is.
