Dragon Lords: Grenadier Miniatures Up On Kickstarter

After the successful Netflix television series "Stranger Things" set in the 80s, there were many requests from fans and 40-year-old players, who played with the same miniatures that were seen in the film, first of all the beautiful miniature of the Demogorgon and then again, of the Mind Fleyer. I had already cast the Demogorgon miniature there, in a box, probably coming from the same mold from which the miniature of our characters was cast. I have always said; beautiful that miniature!!! One day or another I will have to reprint and put on the market. Then after the film I did not know yet, questions began to arrive if by chance the Demogorgon was not in our molds. I decided then that it was time to re cast it and it was the end of the day !! It's amazing how the success of a single miniature can make the difference in sales for a company. Behind the wake of the Demogorgone and the Dungeon & Dragons game played by the protagonists of the hit series, it seems that an interest in the old miniatures has reignited, say "Vintage" that have an unparalleled charm even compared to the type of sculpture, which pradoxically, for a world of fantasy, however, is closer to the reality of the style of the models sculpted today, with a decidedly more Gothic style.

Our project is therefore to reprint all the old series of the company Grenadier Models, starting from the best known Dragon Lords. The work was and is titanic, because we had to do a detailed research, almost as if we were blibliotecari, looking for all the molds of the masters where these miniatures were found. It goes back to the early days of the glorious Grenadier, when the miniatures were still part of even older series, Wizzard and Warriors, Gamma World, Pinnacle, Andrew Chernack personality, in short a work of archeology of miniature. The work was hard, but we did it. Even the dress of the boxes has been recreated in the style of the old series of Dragon Lords. We are sure that collectors will be a real boon!!

INSIDIA: Miniatures from the Wastelands Up On Kickstarter

We are Bad Seed and, for the past couple of years, we’ve been developing INSIDIA, a video game of turn-based mayhem. INSIDIA has its roots in our love for board games and wargames, a passion that was a constant inspiration during the whole development process. Buried somewhere in the depths of our studio, it is still possible to find the very first INSIDIA mock-up: a squared sheet of paper crowded with cardboard figures.

During these two years, we created many unique characters and a virtual world for them to fight for. It was an extremely rewarding task and yet, after each day of work, we couldn’t help to say “Wouldn’t it be amazing to have REAL miniatures of our heroes?”

So here we are. After having printed our very first prototypes, a small army of 75mm Gunthers, we are ready to create miniatures of the most iconic champions INSIDIA has to offer.

Thanks to their details and their unique post-apocalyptic-fantasy aura, our miniatures will stand out both on a shelf and in a battlefield!
