About UsOur History
Why to choose usOUR PHYLOSOPHYWhen working with miniatures, we pay great attention to all details, but above all - we pay special attention to the portrait resemblance to the prototype. We will never offer you miniatures that we ourselves would not have bought. For each of our figures, there is a background, and you will immediately notice and understand this the moment you look at it.
In addition, a few words about the size of our busts. Initially, we were focus on the scale of 1/14 when the current market dominated by much larger size, like 1/10. In our opinion, the smaller size has some benefits, such as – the painting time is much less, rather than to paint a big bust; and smaller busts do not require a lot of space for display.
Having spent some time on additional consumer research, we have come to the conclusion that 1/14 scale of our busts, which we originally thought would be favoured to our customers, hasn’t met a desired demand, and so, the decision has been made to change the scale of the busts we offer to our customers from 1/14 to 1/10. We will keep producing the 1/14 scale busts, but as the limited edition (only 50 pieces be available for the purchase, and each bust will come with the authentication certificate). All of our busts and figures are registered with the UK IPO prior we offering them to our customers.
From 2019, we will concentrate mainly on the fantasy, fictional and historical style figures in 75mm & 32mm figurines. We will also be working on the sets of 1/35 scale miniatures.
Our serviceGET ALL YOU NEED IN ONE PACKAGEWhat we offer you - without mentioning the obvious benefits our miniatures poses, listed are the additional statistics for each bust or figure; you can buy our stands (plinths) made from out of exotic wood. With specially selected sizes for our busts and figures. You can view photos of our plinths in the relevant section on our site. All stands are available to purchase, and you do not need to wait for additional manufacturing time.
Our busts and figures made in high-quality resin, and often, during assembly fragile parts can break. If this happens, you can always order the broken part in addition.
Most of our busts and figurines have alternate variants of poses or heads. In the event that you are unable to decide which particular figure you prefer, you can always order an additional body for your miniature.

In our studio, we are fortunate to have worked in the pre-production since almost the beginning of 3D printing history. In addition, we have extensive experience in different areas, allowing us to approach our projects from different points of view, thus improving the final quality.
In each project we approach at the studio we try to improve not only our quality but also the quality of such product on the market. One of our highest priorities is our work to be one of the best you can find.
