Collecting John Pickford: Latest news from Iron Mask Miniatures

As posted back in June 2014 Iron Mask Miniatures/Gary Price's Kickstarter is soon to be fulfilled. I posted pictures of the WIP halflings back then and promised coming back when the Dwarf Queen has been done.
And what a beautiful girl she is. Another spectacular sculpt and will play the dwarf-queen-role in many game settings, just fine.

Here she is - in all her glory:

Iron Mask Miniatures: Dwarf Queen (green)

So the final 4 sculpts to fulfill the Iron Mask Kickstarter - ended up looking like this:

Iron Mask Miniatures: Dwarf Queen and Halflings Kickstarter Add-on's

An exceptional finish, and look much forward seeing them cast up in shiny white metal.

And speaking of Kickstarter fulfilments. A few weeks ago I received the last two campaign bonus figures. The wonderful Milady de l'elfe and the brute Ogre Captain Jussac.

Iron Mask Miniatures: Milady de l'elfe

Iron Mask Miniatures: Jussac, Ogre Captain

My box of Iron Mask goodies also included 2 sets of Special Hands and a set of Heavy Rapier hands, all to be used for personalizing your Dwarf Musketeers.

Set 1 - Crossbow, hat, torch, bottle, tankard closed and pipe

Set 2 - lantern, bomb tankard open, lace handkerchief and goblet. There should have been a scroll hand as well, but unfortunately it missing from my little set (had 2 goblet hands instead), but pretty sure Gary will include one with the next shipment.

Heavy rapiers

The trained eye will see there's a hat holding hand here and will also know that all current dwarf heads already have hats on, so to make up for that a new bare head has been made - or actually 2 - and another 2 with hats on, so 4 new heads in all.

All these new items has been added to the living Collecting-John-Pickford-wiki - Iron Mask section including this little (or could probably call it big) gem - the Mk. I Jussac, Ogre Captain.
The Ogre Captain's Hat had to be re-sculpted due to casting issues, and the plume was then made a separate piece, but Gary have kindly donated one of the successful master cast of the Mk. I version.


  1. She looks great! I am starting to be concerned by the fact that I haven't received anything yet though....?

    1. You shouldn't, unless you asked for individual shipping for each release, of course (and multiple shipping). I had to ask for individual shipping, as one big box are going to cost me an arm an a leg, due to tax and postal fees.

  2. These look so good! The scale seems a mite larger than all of my classic 80's GW dwarves, yet I'll have to pick up at least a couple few.😍
