Smol Miniatures are a new team of sculptors and hobbyists who are looking to bring some new miniatures to tabletops through the wonders of 3D Printing. They are currently on Kickstarter with their project, Samurai Warfare.

This collection comes with 15mm (pre-supported) miniatures and 28mm (unsupported) miniatures for use in your wargames. There is a big core set that comes with loads and loads of miniatures that you can use to make up your army.

There is currently a set of free miniatures released during the campaign which you can download and try out HERE to see if their style works for you. If you're already sold on the idea then there are loads of infantry and cavalry in various forms that you can print out.

There are a few variations amongst the collection allowing you to make more unique-looking units but the core of this lies in giving you a solid set of Samurai, Ashigaru and more. I think Samurai armies do deserve to be big and playing games in 15mm means you can get that sense of scale on the tabletop.

I particularly like the cavalry that they've included as part of this collection. I think that the detail worked into the riders and their horses should work exceptionally well when Contrast and washes have been applied. Imagine these riding forth in brilliant reds or blues.

The team at Smol Miniatures also put together a set of printed and painted examples in 15mm. They have come out very nicely indeed, the infantry and the cavalry.

Make sure to check out the Kickstarter when you're done peeking at these miniatures as they have some fun Stretch Goals and such in the works for next year. Korean troops, artillery, ships, accessories and more. It's neat to know that they have ideas for expanding this beyond this core set.

Are you tempted to snap these up and use them to start a new 15mm (or 28mm) Samurai army?
