‘Last Patrol’ Kickstarter (30th Oct- 8th Nov). Another chance to get the US Moderns range!
When we launched in 2005 our first range was some modern US marines and militia miniatures. Back then the models had cast on bases and were in metal! As we moved on to focus on our main ranges of Pirates and Old West these models were discontinued but the US Marines always remained popular, even though they were made some 14 years ago! Today more than ever they’re very useful not just for modern gaming, but near future , sci-fi , zombie games etc etc.. The 32mm size making them fit in so well with the influx of new boardgames.
Kickstarter is the perfect platform for determining the scale of demand for bringing back a range like this. So we’ve remastered and remoulded the models with tags for slotta bases. Available in resin. There’ll be a few stretch goals offering free extras, we’ll announce the levels after the first 24 hours.
One of them will be alternative sci- fi /near future helmets, making for easy conversions for loads more variety. I’ll post pictures of those in a couple of days, before launch. Of course as soon as the kickstarter page is ready I’l post that link too. I believe you can follow us on kickstarter to be alerted https://www.kickstarter.com/profile/69613072
There’s 30 models in total, plus another 3 currently intended as stretch goals, divided into 3 packs of 10.
We will of course have a great ‘all in’ pledge deal in addition to the free stretch goals (one for all 30 and another for double everything i.e 60 models). This will be a short run campaign, so rather than do an early bird we intend to keep the offer there for the duration of the campaign so everyone can take advantage of it.
At this stage we’re not sure if we intend to release these online after the campaign, we’ll see how it goes.
Our resin is of the highest quality, it has a hard plastic feel so isn’t brittle. Our models are hand sculpted and hand cast, there’s no digital renders here, only pictures of the actual models. Note the painted versions you see are based on 2 pence pieces (the original paint jobs from 2005) and the new ones come with tags and 25mm slotta bases.
Here's some pics of the free stretch goal heads! There are five types with a near future, sci fi feel to them. Plus a pic showing some head swaps to give you an idea of the possibilities. We'll give enough heads equal to the number of models you buy. The weapons are another stretch goal that will be added to eligible pledges free if the target is hit.
Some head swaps: Note the originals are one piece models, but the head swaps are simple conversions.
weapons ideal for conversions and dioramas.
