Oldhammer has been a watch word for those old enough to remember the golden age of gaming and GW. It has spawned a resurgence in gaming the older games and collectors scouring Ebay and other places for those old classic miniatures.
However it has also seen the two successful Oldhammer events held at Bryan Ansells Wargames Foundry site, however this seems not to stop the movement, and to complement those old ranges comes DieHard Miniatures, a new company set up by old hands from the Golden age and a some new ones to develop an exciting new range of miniatures i that old classic style we all so love.
To Quote “This Kickstarter will allow Diehard Miniatures to fund production of 9 Oldhammer fantasy factions, each of which will have 6 miniatures, tiered from small to large. Our funding level will start with the first 3 figures (warrior, spell caster and ogre sized character), once we hit our target it will unlock the stretch goal levels. It is then down to you to see how far we can push these goals and unlock more beautifully crafted models! Freebies will also be interspersed throughout the stretch goals.”
Creature College, the brand new boardgame from Happy Otter Games is 75% funded on Kickstarter and in its last week, looking for those last few backers. It’s a beautifully produced family game with tactical depth for hardened Eurogamers. Go check it out!
We have started a new project, with a complete range of figures: Medieval Russians.
This is a really exciting challenge, although very difficult to deal with given the number of outputs envisaged and the financial commitment that we have undertaken.
In order to speed up the release date of this new range of Medieval Russians, we have decided to involve you in this project.
