You’ll love the results!


There’s nothing like a table filled with beautiful custom plastic miniatures to make a game stand out from the crowd. Custom plastics can range from a single first player token, to a few individual player pieces, or to a table full of invading armies. Kylin can make just about any shape you can imagine and in a multitude of colors and sizes. You can even go all out and have them hand-painted or color-washed in advance for your players! Custom plastics add complexity, cost, and development time to produce but their impact on your game is second-to-none.


Let’s be honest – you love the feel of a stack of custom metal coins in your hand or moving a metal miniature around the gameboard. Metal components have heft that other materials lack and add a high-quality, premium feel to a game. Enhance the effect by adding color to your miniature with paint or electroplating. You can even add an ink wash or rust effect to give your pieces the used look of a family heirloom.


Does your game need custom bits, but with a heft and texture that’s different from standard plastic? Resin may be the answer. Resin pieces are created with a silicone mold, making them much easier to manufacture than plastic miniatures. Resin is a more brittle material, though, so custom bits must have a strong structural integrity. We think you’ll agree that custom resin components add a special look and feel to any game.
