Big Boris? on Kickstarter? Heresy!!

Heresy Miniatures, the makers of Big Boris and the Netherlord, are in the final run up to starting their first Kickstarter project.

The company has been going since 2002 and is run by Andy Foster, an ex-GW survivor of many years experience.

So far, the final edits have been made to the project and submitted Kickstarter for review/approval.

Once they hear back heresy will announce the official launch date.

Heresy Miniatures are taking the opportunity that is Kickstarter to raise the funds needed to pay for the silicon etc needed to reproduce all the old big monsters that Heresy used to produce in metal before it got too expensive. 

This includes the much sought after and rare Netherlord mk 1 in both winged and spined variants! Yes, the most iconic of all heresy figures (other than Big Boris) is making a comeback, and all those of you who've pestered Heresy over the years can finally have a chance to own one - with the big difference that this one is much, much easier to put together and much nicer to paint.

There will be badges!
Andy explains,

You would not believe how badly Heresy has been hammered since Kickstarter launched. All those projects being run by big well-funded companies that don't need the money suck the hobby money out of people's Paypal accounts and leave none for us poor one-man shows that could really do with the cash! Well, if you can't beat 'em, join 'em!

At the moment you can check out the Heresy Miniatures Kickstarter Profile Page before the Kickstarter goes live.  Heresy Miniatures are also on Facebook.
The main aim of the Kickstarter is to raise enough funds to be able to close the shop for a few months to concentrate on casting dragons and monsters, so be warned that if it's really successful, you might not be able to order anything via the shop for a bit... ;)
Below are a few of the miniatures likely to go to the kickstarter project and they do look yummy.




You know you want a badge

We hope his Kickstarter is successful and a small, but very well known, miniature company gets a boost.
