- Heresy Miniatures
The best way to explain,what Heresy Miniatures is, is to let speak the owner Andy Foster himself:
“ Heresy miniatures are designed by a converter for people who like to convert.Basically, whilst working in the wargames industry , I realised that at that time no company made the kind of miniatures that I wanted. The sort of thing I was searching for were generic fantasy models that were dynamic and exciting but still affordable, and that offered plenty of scope for me to lop off limbs or weapons and upgrade my character model as he or she progresses in the roleplay games I was doing. A keen fan of such sterling games as dungeons + dragons, warhammer quest, heroquest and other rpg systems, I had a large collection of „28mm“ scale (or thereabouts) miniatures already but no company was now making barbarians and suchlike that were the same size for me to use. From here the idea formed in my mind to have a go myself. Some of you may know me as the former manager of games workshop’s museum store, Warhammer World, and may have seen my articles in white dwarf magazine. You may know that I love dramatic, dynamic models and it is this love that I have tried to convey into the models you’ll see on my site. Some of them require a small degree of modelling skill due to the sheer number of parts. “
All Heresy miniatures are multi-part kits to a larger or lesser degree. Wherever possible and worthwhile (ie it’s actually going to be useful to do so), they have a separate head or hands so that they can be easily converted.
Andy Forster developed his own version and own rules of a Fantasy Footbowl game, which he calls „Deathbowl“.
