Check this out…
For those miniatures collectors who cried when Rackham shut down, taking all their fantastic miniatures with them, you can dry your eyes.
Legacy Miniatures will soon be relaunching the Confrontation miniatures range!
Here’s one of the first releases the Flesh Golem! This guy didn’t make it to release before Rackham closed its doors but he’s now set to make his debut.
Hopefully we can also expect to see such beautiful sculpts as these re-released…
Pick your jaws off the floor and put those eyes back in their sockets, lock your wallet away or file for divorce.
Here’s some more info:
Legacy Miniatures is excited to announce that they have secured the license to the entire Confrontation back catalog, and will immediately start producing previously released and unreleased figures from this amazing and sorely missed miniatures line.
Confrontation was a game published by Rackham Entertainment until it entered liquidation in 2009, and some of the most amazing 28mm figures in the world ceased to be available at that time. Cyanide Studios, a prominent French video game developer, has acquired the Confrontation IP and has licensed the miniatures to Legacy Miniatures.
“We’re incredibly pleased”, said Vincent Fontaine Artistic Director of Legacy Miniatures and former Paint Director of Rackham Entertainment. “We’re starting out slowly and doing about 2 to 4 releases a month, some miniatures that never saw production before Rackham closed its doors.”
Working exclusively with CoolMiniOrNot, these “new” releases and re-releases of old favorites will first be avaliable at Gencon 2011 Indy, with the never before seen Hydra and the rare Flesh Golem making their debut. The plan currently is to produce limited runs, these incredibly hot miniatures will be sure to sell out fast!
“Obviously we’re thrilled”, said David Doust, co-founder of Cool Mini Or Not. “Although we handle beautiful miniatures every day, there is something special about Confrontation. We’re looking forward to helping bring these miniatures back to life.”
