This is a cool Kickstarter project and it is already funded, thought you should know so you can get in on the beginning of what looks to be some really great stuff!

They look good but I'm not clear on what the material they're made out of is… here they say 'plastic' but is it good hard GW-ish plastic or is it more of that resin hybrid stuff… or bendy rubber like clix minis?

@Venusboys3:

It is similar to the resin figures from Privateer Press, it is very hard like the GW plastic, but can be cast in a spin-caster machine with the right type of mold. Tooling for the different materials is key to good casts because the air has to move out and resin can more easily trap air than metal does. The material is not "bendy" like Clix, but like most plastics – it flexes to a point and then breaks. The detail on the figures is comparable to that of most metal figures from what I've seen!

I think its probably going to be the same type of plastic as the troll forge guys or defiance games guys use. Its a resin/plastic composite that can be spun cast.

Thats just a theory though, but since he mentioned it being cheapish to do, thats what I would guess.

And yes Red Box does produce some very nice looking miniatures.
