https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1514638599/dragon-lords-grenadier-new-edition?ref=discovery_category_newest About The Mirliton company, born from a hobby of the owner and founder Grazzini Stefano, produces historical miniatures since 1983 in the 15, 20 and 28 mm scales. In 2003 there was a turning point; it had the opportunity to buy from the bankruptcy of the Nemo company in Milan, most of the master molds and production molds with the relative rights of the American company Grenadier Models. 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 Lord. 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. 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. 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, 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. Last year, many of you supported us in our first kickstarter that saw the first series of Dragon Lords brought back to life with the boxes 2001-2002-2003-5001 and 5002. The initiative was a great success for us. Now we are going back to where we left off, and so we are going to recreate other boxes of the series dragon lords, we are talking about the packages 2004-2005-2006-2007 and 5003, which will be well known to the most experienced of you. 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!! The production of our miniatures are the result of years of experience, each of these old series has been researched in the original molds to create new prototypes, these old masters have sometimes required restorations and careful manual cleaning. All this to create new production molds, in order to provide you with the best possible quality. Every metal miniature we made is always carefully treated, from prototyping to packaging! Our miniatures are ideal for your role-playing games, or as alternative miniatures in many table games, or for wargame or skirmish games (do not forget to visit our site where you can find many other articles). But above all our miniatures are fantastic to be painted and collected!
Pingo posted a topic in Show OffThese are three classic tiny Old School vampires, originally from Grenadier, now from Mirliton. Two of them I had when I was a child. The Mirliton set is called "NM002 Vampires". The Grenadier vampires were found in two sets: all three in "606 Vicious Vampires" and two of them in "2014 Folklore Creatures of the Night". I think I must have had the second set because the third vampire, the one in the "Aha! Argh" pose, is unfamiliar to me and it was not in that set. The female vampire is tiny. She is so small I was a little uncomfortable with the implications. My husband suggested she be a hobbit (or gnome) vampire and hey, problem solved. WIP thread here.
