Come on, how can a dragon be oversized? Cang from CMoN is one of the best one's I have, and it's also huge.

There is a riderless version too, if you, like me, think that dragons are too proud and noble to suffer a rider, like some common beast of burden.

I think the Joan of Arc dragon is bigger & it's for 15mm! Honestly - it's huge! Sure it's pvc &, annoyingly, it's part-glued together meaning I need to find a way of taking it apart so I can put it together 'properly' (being autistic, I can get quite anal when putting stuff together).

Re their continuing sales: I've bitten & made a few orders & all have arrived quite promptly.
I think one issue with their range is all the odd names they use. I'm sure they're all based on ancient myths but I find it hard to see any continuity & so hard to navigate. Also some of the models are very differently styled meaning they all look like a random collect of stuff.

Check out my gallery here
Also I've started taking photos to use as reference for weathering which can be found here. Please send me your photos so they can be found all in one place!!

I've also had a couple of normal orders recently, and all arrived in good time.

Also, those Mierce Mugs are HUGE!

I totally recommend them for drinking.

I think that's part of why they're having Bob go and resculpt a lot of previously existing models- it makes the range more unified overall.

I'll also chime in that I've had quick turnaround on orders I've made recently.

Poorly lit photos of my ever- growing collection of completely unrelated models!

You can search their catalogue using 'generic' fantasy names/tropes too though, so that does help a bit.

not the 200 pages I was hoping for but i'm still happy (and i'll buy volume 2 which Rob hints they may do same time next year)

Do all these sales work out to getting minis cheaper and, for the most part, quicker?

I'll second that question. I've been stealth following the thread for years but the (ongoing) history of fulfillment has prevented me from ever ordering.

Got mine in and I think I'm in the same mind as Orlando. It was way smaller then expected, around 50 pages, but Rob did what I really like from concept art book and that's talk about designs and process. A lot of the movie/video game ones I buy will have a paragraph or two for like 20 pages. Rob has something written about every page. If the second book has the same amount of effort it's a sure buy for me. Also this closes off another KSer which is also a plus.

I'd really like the next one to just focus on a single kindred but I'm not sure if that will sell the numbers Rob needs to justify these.

Dammit Monkeysloth, if you tell all them I can't buy it all myself!

I do recommend checking Game Kastle every now and then if you're looking for good deals on Mierce stuff.

What might be the price one day can drastically drop the next for no apparent reason.

Which is not a good sign...that usually means idle stock, which means the market isn't great for Mierce stuff.
CMON did the same, bought up a supply, then sold off at a steep discount after not-much interest was shown,.

update on Metal Production:


As some of you are aware of, metal production has kind of stalled over the last year or so - for the simple reason that we've been trying to get metal production in-house. Why? Relatively simple reasons: cost, time and convenience!
Well, after jumping through many council- and licence-related issues in 2019, we've got the equipment set up and ready to go - with one problem: metal moulds. Our Tim and the boys have enough on their plate printing and moulding for resin miniatures, and we can't afford to hire a metal moulder, but what we can do is get someone to do the mould-making for us on an ad-hoc basis. We've finally found someone (we hope) and that means, after a little training, we can get started on metal production very soon.
Be warned - we will start with the most important metals (i.e., the ones that have sold most) first, such as the Sávrar or the Reiver Hunters or the Sword-Melusines - but we will be getting around to any old metal production after that. Either way, we're confident that - as long as the mould-maker stays true to his scheduling - we can clear any outstanding metal versions of miniatures that have been produced in 2020, and after that, any new miniatures should have metal versions at the point of release.
The first moulds should be spinning in February, we think, but we'll probably only start getting proper production going in March.
It's been a long, hard road - but we always do get there in the end.


Hopefully this works out for them. Like 95% of my stuff I'm waiting on is done in resin and just waiting on metal versions.
