Iron Mask Miniatures is another historic fantasy miniature project. It's goal is to develop a range of swashbuckling adventurers for RPGs, dungeon crawling, and skirmish war games. But also plan to have core troops made that can be used to build units for massed battles.
Painted concept 1

proof-of-concept figures painted by the talented Terry Matheny of Sword and Palette.

The project has been inspired by White Knights Renaissance Dwarfs so no real surprise that the project had to involve Multi-part Specialist John Pickford.

First wave of miniatures was a range of swashbuckling dwarf duelists modelled after the legendary King’s Musketeers of 17th Century France. A set of figures armed with rapier and gauche daggers.

This first wave was successfully funded in a Kickstarter Campaign in August 2013 - [1]

In 2015 went to Kickstarter again. The 2 wave project was all about mounted musketeers - [2]

Most of the miniatures are based on artwork produced by Colin Upton

Special Character Dwarf in the Iron MaskEdit

SC1 Kickstarter Special Dwarf in the Iron MaskEdit

The Iron Mask Kickstater was a limited production run for Kickstarter backers only. Each figure was packed with a card-sized reproduction of the Dwarf in the Iron Mask concept art, individually numbered and signed by the artist, Colin Upton. The number you got depended on the order in which pledges was received.

Kickstarter Add on - bitsEdit

A stretched goal from the first Kickstarter was a selection of special dwarf duelist hands. two sets totalling twelve hands holding various objects. 2 of them (crossbow and lantern) where released with the Dwarf in the Iron Mask. The other 10 are: bomb, tankard closed, tankard open, hat, goblet, pipe, scroll, torch, lace handkerchief, and bottle. As one of these hands was a "holding hat" a bear head had to be done. Ended up being a set of 4 new heads. Also made where 6 new heavy rapiers. All based on the original designs but reinforced to make them stronger. After the Kickstarter they were available as separate duelist (DM1C) and as hands (DMH 3-6).
