We are Benoit, art director, and Mireille, project leader, both founders of Raging Heroes, a young French miniatures company that launched in December 2009.
We're obviously very pleased to present our miniatures on this forum, but also to be able to hear your comments, feedback and suggestions on our creations.
As wargamers, we always wanted to put together gorgeous armies with their own unique look. And so, with Raging Heroes, we aim to create the minis we dreamed of but could not find on the market, minis that can be key pieces for your armies and leave your opponent drooling with envy...
In addition, we wanted to indulge ourselves, and you as well, by providing multiple options. Most of our minis come with a choice of arms and heads, and even armour variations. So, not only can you easily customize your models, but in addition, we happily contribute to your Bits box ;-)
Our figurines are sculpted using 3D sculpting software and transformed into masters using a highly accurate 3D printer that is mostly used in the medical field. This technique allows us to offer our minis in two sizes:
- Heroic: human-sized hero characters that fit into a unit,
- Legendary: giant creatures that can be demons or avatars. This large size also corresponds to the 54mm-scale appreciated by painters.
While our first models have all been dedicated to Fantasy, we are also launching SF models in late 2010!
Finally, it seemed important to mention here that we faced quite a few technical challenges in developing our production system, and at the same time, we were not fully prepared for the success of our first minis… This resulted in significant shipping delays for several months. But we worked hard and did not give up! We significantly improved the quality of our masters, we are now working with one of the best foundries in the world, and we have set-up an efficient but low-cost global shipping service.
Hoping to see you soon on this forum!
