Minion Miniatures is a new Fantasy Miniature manufacturer with plans to release a whole range of plastic, metal and resin miniatures support our new fantasy skirmish game called Underdeep.
Underdeep takes place underneath the world of Morn, crushed by decades of war. Now it is the time of the creatures of the Underdeep to have their time… The game focuses on the battles and machinations of the pivotal races of the Underdeep including Goblins, Orcs, Gnolls, Drow, Undead and many more besides. The difference in this world is that the Sunsiders (those who dwell above ground) are generally only minor players in this vast world, a world where evil battles evil on an almost contestant basis.
The basic Kickstarter will allow us to release the plastic sprues for both the Zombie Abominations and Goblinkind with our basic rules being free and downloadable when the KS launches. We want the community to help us develop the rules throughout the KS and beyond to make them as exciting and entertaining as possible.
Each standard box set of 24 models will include 6 different body styles, 10-14 head variants and a selection of weapons allowing either sword, bow or spear armed Goblins. The Zombies just have a variety of different stabbing and hacking weapons including their claws.
The first stretch goal adds the command sprue to each box set adding two additional bodies to the selection, command heads and weapons as well as parts to make a standard bearer, champion and musician.
The parts will enable you to make thousands of different combinations of warriors to add to your army!
The game, Underdeep, is a skirmish based game with armies typically ranging from 20 to 70 models but in some cases much larger forces can be used. We also plan to release a mass combat game at a later date.
We are very open about the use of our miniatures and understand that many people would like to use our miniatures for other game systems and roleplaying games. We have therefore broken our pledge levels down to allow pledgers to form huge armies or just to buy a few of our miniatures. A pledge of £1 opens our addon store to you with lots of goodies and more being added as stretchgoals are hit.
Our plan is to run a Kickstarter campaign in September of this year to release the initial starter set and plastic miniatures with our stretch goals providing supporting metal and resin figures like Bugbears, Flesh Golems, Zombie Hulks and many more besides.

The plastic miniatures are being manufactured by Renedra, the worlds very best plastic miniature manufacturer. This means the miniatures will be of the absolute highest quality available and good value too.
If the Kickstarter is very successful another boxed set, in plastic will be available… the Lizardkin. The Lizardkin dwell in the distant swamps and mires of Morn and many make their homes in extensive, damp underground caverns. The picture below depicts a Lizardkin Brave but the faction can also call upon Kobolds (diminutive and plentiful lizard like humanoids), Deathscales (enormous primitive lizardkin) and Troglodytes (stupid, slow but hugely strong). Some tribes even tame huge Dire Monitors to use as mounts and beasts of war!
