A Message From Mike Noe of Iron Wind Metals Regarding Ral Partha
"A Message From Mike Noe, President of Iron Wind Metals
With just over a week into our second Chaos Wars KickStarter, at 20K plus, and 20 days to go, I wanted to take the opportunity to thank everyone who has joined in so far on Iron Wind metals ongoing quest to resurrect and revitalize Ral Partha’s Chaos Wars wargame rules and classic fantasy miniatures. This is a labor of love, and we couldn’t do it without your help and support.
We’ve just unlocked the Dwarf berserkers Stretch Goal, but have a lot more ahead - Trog Cavalry, Undead Fairies, the rerelease of the Ral Partha Classic Witch’s Cauldron Game, just to name a few.
We’ll going to need some help in getting there though, and that’s where you come in. If you like this project, please help to spread the word. Far too often we hear “I didn’t know you guys were still around”. Ral Partha classic mini’s have never gone away. Iron Wind Metals has kept the flame going for years, and with KickStarter and your help we can turn that little flame into an inferno…
I'll add, that this range of figures has held it's own against the best that the hobby could offer for nearly 4 decades. These are true 25mm scale and the detail is awesome. Remember, that today's lumbering hulks are a result of 'scale creep' and when you compare them to the 'old school' stuff - The 'genuine article' if you will, they are often demonstrably superior.
Take a look at the anatomy and scale, at the skill with which Tom Meier and Dennis Mize captured expression.
These models are the progenitors of the figures you all buy today.
OK, I'll make a straight pitch to you... These are history. If you don't like the smaller scale, fine, but pledge a dollar, and get your name listed and you will be showing that you have a sense of the importance of these models in your hobby.
Pledge your dollar here please:
