Serious Approach to the Hobby
One of the key tasks of Autarky Group is the adaptation of the foreign products to the CIS market and its localization. Autarky works as a publisher to eliminate the language barrier that slows down the gaming community development and the market growth.

The localization process is managed by professional linguists with a vast gaming experience, and that allows to create a high quality adaptation keeping all the terms and equivoques. Our first project was the rules manual and character cards for the Malifaux wargame, critically acclaimed by the players community.
Miniature painting and modelling is a complex creative work practiced by hundreds of thousands of people on a professional and amateur level. To support and develop this field among Russian painters and players, we created the Mint Dragon, a unique project that combines the international miniature painting competition and the school for the beginners.

The first Mint Dragon competition was held in September 2017 during the SHTUKA festival. The competition has been officially supported by Acrylicos Vallejo and Wyrd Miniatures LLC. Hundreds of international participants gathered at the competition and submitted 491 works for various categories, from single miniatures to massive dioramas.

Mint Dragon school provides a possibility to learn how to paint miniatures, from basic techniques to the workshops by world-known professional painters.
SHTUKA is a unique event dedicated to the most actual hobbies. The first festival was held on September 2nd and 3rd 2017 and gathered 18000 visitors at the 8000 sq.m. venue of the Central House of Artists, Moscow.

Companies-exhibitors organized themed booths about all kinds of hobbies: miniatures, cosplay, collectible card games, rc models, comics, board games, scale models and dozens of other hobbies. Such a diverse program created a space for contemporain hobbies and unified all the representatives of the geek community. In addition, Shtuka became an entry level for those who were not familiar with such type of offline leisure.

At the moment Shtuka became a yearly project and will is going to be held every autumn, adding more of fascinating hobbies each time.
