From the announcement:

Just got back from Gen Con Indy on Monday and it was one heck of a show once again. It was great seeing the familiar faces from years past come on by to check out the new releases and pick up their favorites. It is also great to see new faces light up when they look at the Dark Sword studio collection for the first time. It is an epic show and a great time to see some of the painters and sculptors I collaborate with. A very busy, but good time indeed.

From the release:

We have 21 brand new GRRM Masterworks releases that are now here and available for everyone around the world! All of them except for two, were sculpted up by Tom Meier. The other two in question are wonderful tribute sculpts that Kev White from Hasslefree fame sculpted up for our Kickstarter project we ran a few months back (which has already been fulfilled). Our staff painter Jessica Rich painted up the bulk of the studio models below with Marike Reimer and Jen Haley stepping in with their takes on the wonderful Chataya sculpt. There were so many new releases, we could not fit them all here on our home page. So check out our Online Store for the rest.


Dark Sword Miniatures has just under a week left in their George R.R. Martin Kickstarter campaign. They've unlocked another stretch goal and is headed towards the next.

From the campaign:

Congratulations! Another stretch goal has fallen and the Septa sculpt from Mr. Tom Meier will now be included as a FREE bonus miniature to your backer rewards bringing the total miniatures in the package to 20 + all those extra modular Nights Watch items unlocked recently. We are now at $300 in total value for your $160 to $180 Backer Pledge (not counting any optional add-ons backers include), so lets unlock some more miniatures as we gear up for the home stretch!


Dark Sword Miniatures launched a Kickstarter campaign in order to expand their George R.R. Martin line of minis. It's already well over the goal with 18 days still to go.



Source

From the campaign:

Dark Sword has been producing the critically acclaimed George R.R. Martin Masterworks range of tabletop gaming scale pewter miniatures at a very measured pace over the past 6+ years. About a miniature a month is what it has broken down to. These miniatures are created working closely with George himself from how he envisioned the characters from the books in his mind - they are not from the HBO series. George personally approves every single sculpt as he is an avid miniature collector (his personal collection is beyond epic) and has quite the eye for what he wants in this line. With your backing and support on this project, we would like to increase this pace and come out with a very large expansion of new miniatures in one unified release for the range in early 2014.


Dark Sword Miniatures has a pair of Halloween-themed minis available over in their webshop.

From the release:

It has been a very busy month at Dark Sword. We have lots of great stuff in motion and a couple of new Halloween themed releases below. Jeff Grace did an amazing witch carving her pumpkin minion's face and Dave Summers did a wonderful Mouse Mummy. As always, they are both already here and ready for shipping out for your collections. So enjoy all the new eye candy folks.


Dark Sword Miniatures has 22 new releases up on their website.

From the update:

It has been a wild couple months folks. After running and already delivering all backer rewards on our first Kickstarter and then exhibiting at Gen Con Indy (best Gen Con to date) in late August, it has been BUSY. Here are the fruits of those labors - we have 22 new releases posted in our Online Store for your viewing pleasure (so many that we could not fit them all on the home page!) including our Massive Elmore Dragons Diorama Kickstarter Dragon. As always, they are all here and ready for shipping out for your collections. So enjoy all the new eye candy folks.


Dark Sword Miniatures launched a Kickstarter campaign in order to fund a Dragon Diorama, and it's already at more than 5x funding level.



From the campaign:

Help fund the production and release of a truly massive Special Edition Larry Elmore Dragons diorama from Dark Sword Miniatures.

Greetings to my fellow miniature enthusiasts around the world -

The painted studio models for the new minis were painted up by Marike Reimer, Jen Haley and Jessica Rich.

From the release:

Darksword Miniatures has just released a DVD with demonstrations of my painting techniques. You can buy it from Darksword, however I'm also selling copies and donating 20% of the price to Children with Cancer, joining forces with Newbold World in their fundraising effort.

Dark Sword Miniatures releases their new 2012 Easter Bunny Adventurer to their online store.



From their site:

Hippidy Hop Hop Hippidy Hop Hop...Easter's on it's way....It is that time of year and what better critter to release than our good friend the Easter Bunny? Mr. Des turned the concept art for us very quickly as a favor and then Mr. Dave Summers did a fantastic job on bringing the concept to life in the sculpt on a short turn-time as well. We went with a fun classical Easter Bunny with a fantasy vibe so he could fit right in with the other critters in our ranges. Throw in a a big favor from our production facility (and Jess rocking his paintjob on a moments notice) and the Easter Bunny is here and ready for shipping out around the world. Whew!


Dark Sword Miniatures announce new releases and new sculptors added to their ranges:



From their website:

Well 2012 is starting off with a bang as we have 8 new (never before seen) releases posted up in our Online Store along with their studio paintjobs you can check out from Marike and Jess. Did not even have time to post up the greens as sneak peeks - went straight to full releases with studio paintjobs to boot.

Dark Sword is also welcoming the following new (to Dark Sword) sculptors to the party with their first ever Dark Sword sculpts. Patrick Keith, Bobby Jackson and Gene VanHorne have now officially joined the Dark Sword club. These three cool cats are most well known for their Reaper bodies of work. As most of you know - Dark Sword and Reaper are pals as we dig each others miniatures big time. So working with these talented folks is a nice tip of the cap to the cool cats at Reaper and their MASSIVE miniature ranges. So if you like something you see here from them, be sure to check out the Reaper site and other minis they sculpted up for them.
