My name is Tim and I am the owner of Oddity Miniatures. My range is still in its start up phase and is still some time away from seeing regular releases. Recently though, I got into contact with Ryan, the owner of Fictive Miniatures. We have reached an agreement that I will be buying the rights to his out of production Orcs!
One problem is that all of my funds are currently tied up in various commissions I have going on with several sculptors. To solve this I am running an Indiegogo campaign in order to fund this project and Ryan has been so kind as to allow me to do so!
With your help I hope to make this campaign a great success!!!
Please visit the link below to check out the campaign!
These are some really nice, and original, orc miniatures! Very tempting to back! I might have to wait a week or two to get some spare cash.
Good luck mate!

Thx guys! :cheers
I’ve had some feedback that people are a bit worried that when they get the Orc Horde perk that they will get the same Orc warriors/poses. I can tell you that you don’t have to worry as the arms are interchangeable!!! This means you can get quite some variety and your Horde will look unique and not to mention quite impressive!
Some of the best orcs ever made (IMO) - and glad to see them back, Tim.
You have my support - now lets hope you find a few others - so we could get some more poses and weapon options
I saw! Thanks Carsten! :hat off
Update 4! New perks, painted miniatures!!!
I�?Tve got some pretty exiting news to share with you and that is you can now get the Orc miniatures painted by Paul Sanderson, a very talented and really great painter. He has joined forces with me and agreed to do the painting side of things. This means you now have the chance to have some really good paintjobs to add to your collection!
Paul will work with you to establish your preferred colourscheme and wishes so let�?Ts say if you simply don�?Tt have the time to paint, or are just maybe not that good at it and would like to own some quality artworks then here is your chance!!!
Example of Paul�?Ts painting!
Nice orcs!! Need some with no armor too …
Not an update per se but I could really use more backers!!! If we go up a bit the following days I might include the Hogman as an add on!

Update 5! The arrival of the Hogman!!!
A lot of people have asked me if I can include the Hogman into this campaign and while this was not originally intended (or calculated for that matter!), I have decided to do so! 'Cause quite honestly, we are not going that fast! So I hope this new add-on will gain us more backers and we will still be able to reach our goal. And hopefully a bit more…?!
There’s also a double pack at �,� 23,- and a painted Hogman at �,� 37,- which is limited to 10!
The Hogman you see above is painted by Paul Sanderson and if you would like to own a Hogman painted by him then you can do so by pledging for one. Remember there are only 10 of these available so if you want one you better be fast before they are gone!
Please help me and share the news but more importantly back!

Paul Sanderson just send me a pic of the first two Orcs he has painted! If you want to own a couple of very nice painted Orcs yourself then head to the ORCS! campaign and pledge!
Paul did great - and the surely looks good
How can people resist buying those now …?
Just a little under three days left (68 hours to be precise!) and I am really grateful for the support I’ve been getting from you all! I hope that in the remaining we can end as high as posible!
This brings me to a point that had been raised on several occassions and a valid one at that! I have made the mistake to go with ‘Flexible Funding’ and it seems this has hurt the campaign somewhat. At the time I didn’t think much of it to be honest. I thought we would reach the goal so didn’t think of the concequences of the possibilty if we didn’t reach it! I understand why people might be hesitant to back because they might think when the goal isn’t reached they somehow won’t get what they paid for!
I can tell you this won’t be the case!!! I have found someone really generous who will loan me the difference so I will be able to deliver no matter what!!!
This was always the case but at first it might have been the case that it would take just a little longer. The caster has given me a great forecast too so I expect I can deliver very soon after the campaign has ended!
Painted perks! Prices lowered!
I’ve lowered the prices on the painted perks. I hope this will make them more attractive for people who’ve been thinking about buying them but couldn’t afford them or thought the prices were too high.
Paul Sanderson really is a great painter and a very good man! I cannot thank him enough for being such a great help and friend!!!
FINAL DAY! Last chance to get these wonderful miniatures! When the campaign is over who knows how long it might take untill they are available again!!!
Update 11: What now?!
I meant to write this update sooner but unfortunatly family life came in between and to be honest I need some time to get myself together a bit. On one side I am very happy with the support you, the backers, have given me! On the other side I did expect more out of this campaign to be quite honest!
In hindsight I have made a big error. Going with Flexible funding instead of Fixed because I thought it didn’t make that much difference. Especially since I had 100% faith we would reach our target. I understand completly that people are weary of backing a project which works this way and I will never be doing that again.
Now we come to the important part that is fullfilling this campaign. First I need to pay Ryan and make sure the moulds and rights are transferred to me. As it now stands I am awaiting his details so I can wire him the amount. I have had contact with the caster’s too and as soon as they receive the moulds they can start the casting part. The Hogman should be moulded this week also so if all goes to plan the orcs and hoggie should be casted along the same time.
They have a turnaround of about three weeks and get it shipped to me. Then I would need some time to sort them and package them. Now the plus side is that because there aren’t that many backers I should get all this done relatively quickly! See, I’m already back to my positive self again!
Anyone reading this and who thinks ‘‘why am I too late, I sooo wanted these too!’’ can still do so by contacting me here or through my Facebook page;
You better hurry though because as soon as I have given Griffin the order to get started, I am not adding more to the number of casts. Since I have to eat in to my funds (which were meant to pay for the other moulds and sculpts) it could take a long time before these orcs and the Hogman hit the market in a regular way!!!
Lastly I want to thank the backers one more time! Without your awesome support I would never have been able to buy the orcs! Thanks alot, you rock!!!
