Corvus Belli teilt in einem Blog Artikel eine interessante Entwicklung: den Einsatz von Thermoplastik für größere Minis und Basen.
Corvus Belli nutzt in Zukunft Thermplast-Spritzguss
Today’s a great day for Corvus Belli. We were super eager to make this announcement.! At long last, we are presenting you with Corvus Belli’s first miniature made of injected thermoplastic. No, you did not read this wrong – this is a plastic miniature made in our factory in Bueu (Spain).
We’ve been working with this new material for months, and today we can say that we’re completely satisfied with the final product, which meets all of Corvus Belli’s quality demands. The time has come to share it with you.
The timing couldn’t be better, as metal prices are reaching historic highs, we simply couldn’t keep stable prices for our entire range of products. You’re all aware of the recent price rises, and we didn’t want to have to increase the price of our products before the year’s end. For that reason, we decided that Infinity’s first plastic miniature would hit the market earlier than originally expected.
We’re talking about Vostok Sputniks, included in the Beyond Operation Crimson Stone box, which will be up for sale in September.
We can guarantee that it’s an outstanding product. One of the core features that identify us is that we constantly strive for quality, and that’s why we make the best miniatures on the market.
The manufacturing system is identical to that of our metal miniatures regarding the cutting, 3D printing, molding, and filing processes – the only change is that the plastic is injected into the mold, whereas the metal uses a centrifuge.
This change of material has no impact whatsoever in the miniature’s quality and level of detail, which is still top notch. Besides, this type of plastic is a reusable material that meets every safety regulation (EN-71) – free of cadmium, lead, and phthalates.
From now on, all upcoming Corvus Belli’s miniatures with a sizeable volume and some game complements will be made of this new material, keeping the manufacturing of the game economically viable while preserving its high quality.
Plastic and metal will share the game tables, each providing the best they have to offer.
Here is a list of Corvus Belli’s upcoming miniatures and components made of injected thermoplastic:
- Vostok Sputniks (included in the Beyond Operation Crimson Stone), September release.
- Jackbots (incluided in ITS Season 13 Tournament Pack and AGL Tournament Pack – Fiddler Edition).

And, of course, we’ll be delighted to answer any questions you may have in the next Studio Update on August 11.
