Warploque Miniatures is a newish company that has exploited the advantages offered by Kickstarter to, well, get kickstarted. The photo shows Alex sculpting new miniatures for Arcworlde in Rochester Games Models & Railways.
The full range of miniatures up to now have only been offered by Warploques website but now the range is on exclusive offer in shop at Rochester Models. This is a large model shop covering diecast models, plastic kits, wargame models, boardgames, GW, etc. etc. - and has a number of play tables available to hire inexpensively.
The Arcworld models are in the new 'heroic scale' - about 32mm - like Warlord's Doctor Who: Into The Vortex. They are premium models and priced accordingly The Fire Dragon above is huge and costs £65.
The Albionnican Empire is one of the Arcworlde factions. The starter pack of nine models, an officer and eight troopers is available for £25 and I am definitely buying it!
All these models are from Ian's collection. Ian is a stalwart of the Rochester shop.
A rulebook is available for £20 as a stand alone item or as part of starter sets.
As is commonplace these days, the rulebook is scrumptiously illustrated.
Rochester Models has all sorts of promo-days for different games systems. As part of this day, they were running Arcworlde demo games. It's a very friendly place and well worth a visit.
Ian, incidentally, is the fifth from the right (wearing glasses) in this photo.
Great models, Ian!
