I love playing fantasy miniatures game... I've been playing for over 40 years... D&D, Frostgrave, Thud & Blunder, Otherworld Fantasy Skirmish, Pulp Alley to name a few and I love Fantasy Literature. I'm really excited about being able to bring this range of characterful fantasy sculpts to the tabletop.



The miniatures are sculpted by the very talented Mark Fuller and the samples are painted by the expert hands of Jon Atter, both regular LAF'ers!



I'm launching this range on Kickstarter, because I've used up my development budget to get these first 18 models sculpted, moulded, cast and painted and I'd really like to get a stack more miniatures added to the range, so if you like what you see, please pop over to our campaign page and check them out in more detail.

Just launched this project for 28mm wizards and warriors inspired by fantasy fiction.

Just launched this project for 28mm wizards and warriors inspired by fantasy fiction.

I was going to launch these a month or so ago on Indigogo, but decided best to wait and use Kickstarter.

I've had a few people asking for scale comparisons with other miniatures.


The Guard's Guard miniatures are the ones on the flagstone bases.



The comparison miniatures are from Westwind Miniatures Vampire Wars, Frostgrave, Ghost Archipelago, Redoubt Miniatures and Sally 4th The Villagers lines.

I'm just getting ready to set up Poll for next miniature to add to the range as stretch goals.

Any one got any thoughts about what they'd like to see next?

Well, Jon Atter has certainly done a superb job at painting these lovely sculpts.
I too am amazed by the glasses and the flask!

I've had a great day gaming with 'The Guard' and 'The University' with my good friend Mike.



Our first game was set in the university basement and saw an unfortunate Meritorious Professor of Dimensional Travel accidentally opening a portal to the Dungeon Dimension. Unfortunately eaten by the first Greater Denizen to arrive, we will never know what went wrong, however Rincewind is determined not to be the second course.



Unfortunately the Denizens are not contained and escape into the town, where the watch attempt to contain them!



Over the next few days I'll write some of these games up and put together some free resources for using the Watch & Wizards in Thud & Blunder, Frostgrave and Pulp Alley.

'It was all a terrible mistake....' Chaos from the Dungeon Dimension erupts beneath the Unseen University. Full report with loads of photos of my 3D printed Dungeon terrain on my hobby blog



On Wednesday Mike and I got together to play a couple of games of Thud & Blunder based on The Unseen University and The Watch from Guard's Guards by Terry Pratchet using the new Sally 4th miniatures inspired by the books. Our first adventure takes place in the basements below the Unseen University. The Meritorious Professor of Grotesque Biology has accidentally opened up a portal to the Dungeon Dimensions and some pretty grotesque Dungeon Denizens have taken the opportunity to cause chaos in the prime material plane.



Help is at hand Modo the Gnome caretaker has brought help in the form of The Chair of Grotesque Biology, The Bursar, Professor Ridculy and The Librarian.



The Librarian shows off some tasty martial arts moves, and while the Denizen is distracted head butts it into oblivion. Rincewind regains his composure and assists the Chair by blessing him prior to his fire ball attack on the approaching Lesser Denizen.
