  1. Say hi to BOLD Miniatures

    Hi all again!

    It has been a busy month but I can finally come and give some updates on how the whole process is going! For those that haven't read the other posts, I'm trying to release a 75mm mini on my own. Taking care of purchasing licenses for artwork, hiring 3D artist, managing a Kickstarter campaign and everything that else needed to make this dream true.

    In my last post I showed the concept on which I'm basing the miniature. Joshua is the name chosen for the it and ...

    The mercenary, created by Katherine Zhuk a.k.a. Elisa Day. The character has tons of personality and details so I'm sure it will make a wonderful miniature to paint.

    Hello everyone!

    By the end of next week I should have a concept ready. Here are the three that ...
  4. Update 1: choosing a good concept art

    Hi there!

    It's been a week since I posted the first post of this journey. Started the week emailing Benjamin Ee for permission on his work Betty and Connor, which he replied later on the week explaining that he was not interested, sadly. So I've moved on to mail Johannes Helgesson, which is an artist that I really like. There are many of his pieces that I would love to see made into miniatures. So I'm waiting for him to answer.

    Anyhow, I have quickly realised that if I ...
  5. The making of a 75mm miniature. Join the journey!

    Hi guys! My name is Mario.

    I'm making a 75mm miniature and I wanted to share my journey with you. It is not common that we know all the work that creating a miniature takes, and I would love to have a small line of minis so, I thought that it would make one and share my experience here. I've been for about a month now contacting artists, 3D sculptors and production companies in order to get familiar with the process and in order to get a budget.

    A simplified list of the ...
