Hi, everyone!

I'm Lysander, and I'm one of the two guys that run the Smiths of Urth.
Together with my friend Rama (aka 'The Modeller'), we would like to produce a range of fantasy and sci-fi miniatures to overflow your tabletop adventures, be them RPGs, wargames, boardgames or anything in between.

Why are you running a Patreon?

To eat.
But seriously... Patreon is the best way to create a community around our products, while still maintaining a steady flow of income, something that's good for you and us! That doesn't mean we are using Patreon exclusively, though...
With the money we get from Patreon, and store sales, we'll be able to get better equipment to make higher quality models, e.g., with an Anycubic Photon we can make test prints to see if our detailed models can be printed on a resin printer.


But I don't like Patreon! How can I get your models without giving them money?

I feel ya... Especially for you, we'll upload our monthly miniature set to our store, where you could also get minis from past months, albeit a little pricer.


What can I expect from my pledge a.k.a. how many minis am I getting?

A miniature is a tricky beast... Not all of them are created equal, and so are hard to categorize in terms of quality. That's why we're giving each model a point value.
- Simple models that aren't complicated, with little detail, are valued 0.5 points.
- Standard models like common troops, with more details, are worth 1 point.
- Characters or special troops, are worth 2 points.
- There will also be bigger creatures to come, but it's still a bit early for that. Just expect them ;)

With that point system in mind, expect a minimum of 4 mini-points per month (will get increased in the future when we unlock goals), but you also get access to our "Treasure Chest"™ with more minis.
This Chest is going to be filled in time, when we unlock goals with your help.

As a patron, you also get early-access to everything we upload to Thingiverse!

Please remember: the monthly sets will be available only during the month they are released in. So be quick, and download the files as soon as you can!



When am I going to be charged? Am I getting the rewards even on the last day?

You will be charged as soon as you sign up to our Patreon, and the 1st day of every month, so yeah, you can get the rewards even on the last day.

Can I get a file or two to test-print and see if I like your style?

Sure! Go ahead to our Thingiverse and knock yourself out.


Are you selling printed minis too?

Not in the foreseeable future, but...

Can I sell prints of your files?

Yes!... but only if you are paying the corresponding tier here, and have our express written consent to do so. If the merchant tier is sold out, but you still want to sell our prints, send us a PM or an email SmithsOfUrth @ gmail . com


How are your files licensed? Can I share them to my friends?
We own all the rights for our files.
That means that you can't sell our files, or distribute them. You can print a mini or two for your friends, though!
