Wyrd Miniatures Goes Plastic

Wyrd has traditionally done all of it's models the old fashion way, sculpt, mold, cast and done. Like many figure manufacturers rising metal costs and other issues have caused them to look at alternatives.

They've moved from traditional sculpting to digital sculpting and from metal to high detail hard plastic. Below we've got a couple of shots to show you the progress from art to finished plastic product.

They say they're not raising their prices to do so, unlike GW. They claim to offer better quality, more model options (heads, arms, weapons) at a better price. I'll be interested to see how these turn out.

WYR4056 - Dark Debts Box Set - $40.00

WYR4057 - Mr. Graves - $11.00

WYR4058 - Mr. Tannen - $11.00

WYR4059 - The Depleted (3 pack) - $21.00

WYR5072 - Lazarus - $18.00

WYR4060 - Beckoners (2 pack) - $16.00

Apparently these are just a few of the things that'll be making their way to Gencon next month. There's some interesting looking models in there. The new Dark Debts box set looks like something i may have to pick up.


  1. is it going to effect the price of there figures?

  2. I dont play Malifaux, but could be tempted to get those beckoners - just for the fun of painting them up ;-)

    1. Go for it! Malifaux is a fun game with lots of cool mechanics.

  3. It should affect their prices - if they are plastic they should be bloody cheaper IMHO

    1. Apparently the metal moulds you need for plastic are incredibly expensive to make, unlike the moulds you need for metal miniatures.
