Welcome to my Kickstarter!
My name is Mark Norton, and I am working full-time as a sculptor going by the name Frozen Ninja 3D. I am designing and sculpting my own line of highly detailed figures with the hopes of bringing people together for fun hobby times. Please visit the bottom of this page for examples of my work, and to see the quality I am trying to achieve.
This is the fourth Kickstarter project that I have run, and the third project that features models entirely designed and sculpted by me.
What is being offered in this project?
The goal of this project is to release an entire line of high quality plinths and display stands. These plinths make any figure or bust stand out among the rest, and will make an exciting addition to any collection. In addition, these plinths will help bring your competition entries to that next level.
FIRST - MEDIUM SIZE PLINTHS - $12 each, or cheaper if you get a "Bundle" Pledge.
To start the project, I am offering Medium size Plinths. The top of the Medium plinth is approximately 35mm across, which is ideal for most miniatures, and busts look awesome on them as well. These plinths are about 44mm Tall, with base sizes ranging from 42mm to 49mm. Each plinth will be supplied unpainted.
In addition to Medium Size Plinths, I have Large Size Plinths planned as stretch goals, as well as some other fun sizes.
I have a lot of great models planned for this project! Here is the starting lineup (scroll down further to see the stretch goals that are planned...)
Here is a list of all of the plinths that are currently available in this Kickstarter project. I will continue to update this list as stretch goals are reached.
Shipping will be charged separately, please refer to the shipping chart below for rates.
These are the plinths that will be available once we hit certain funding levels.
The First Stretch Goal is titled "Chains". The Medium Plinth will be unlocked if we can reach $1,800 in funding. It will be available as an Add-On for $12.
These last few weeks have been very busy IRL so very little has been painted. I did however manage to whip this up the other day.
The little vampire. aka Vampire Halfling from Kings of War: Vanguard's Undead Warband Booster, by Mantic Games. Off to count some blood sausages. Or maybe slurp some black pudding. Oh, how he longs to again be able to have some hot cross buns...but they burn his mouth so...
For some reason my camera did not want to focus properly on the face.
What is it with "premium" resin minis and what looks suspiciously like printlines? Has someone failed at the clean-up-of-the-master-print-stage or is it something else that makes such lines a thing? Has someone rushed and cut corners? Why would you release a premium resin model like this?
You can say a lot about Mantic starting out with cheap, "no brand" minis, but that is simply no longer true. Single, normal size resin models clock in at the €10-15 range retail price, the four model booster is a £30 / €40 / $45 box. That is premium pricing. Well, maybe at the lower end of premium but still, premium pricing.
When they charge a premium price, I expect a premium product. Print lines = sloppy quality control. = not premium.
Apart from the print lines on the cape, it is a good mini. I cannot abide the square bases they use for Vanguard, so I printed a 25mm round for it.

Fe fi fo fum, here come the Giants!
Ignore the bases, they are temporary until the Sons of Behemat codex releases and I know what I can proxy them as.
First up we have Devin Townsend...er, the Kings of War Giant.
Then the former Otherworld Giant, now produced by Crooked Dice Games.
And a very iconic piece of loot:
This is one of Mantic's earliest metal minis, the "limited editon" Orc Shaman from 2011. It was AFAIK not available by itself, but added to army boxes, deals and so forth and I believe I got this from the first Kings of War kickstarter in 2012. Or an army box with orcs.
Today, it is on their website and can be had by redeeming 25 mantic points through their points scheme. It was known for a while as "Wip the Half-Caste" but now is back to "Orc shaman" I suspect the "Wip the half-caste" name is some sort of internal Mantic joke.
I must admit I have always found this model to be rather busy and difficult to read. There seems to be so much going on.
