We've had a lot of feedback and requests for some larger 28mm Animals, as our original 28mm set were a little on the smaller side and suited the traditional 25-28mm figures better. These new creatures are much bigger and will look great with the 28mm-32mm ranges, so companies like Warlord, Perry, or some of the bigger Fantasy ranges. The previous '28mm' range has been re-labelled as '25mm' and will suit the more traditionally sized manufacturers, so Hinchliffe, Front Rank, Eagle, etc.
If you purchased any of our 28mm Animals prior to 26/8/19, then you will need to purchase from the 25mm section so that they match with your previous purchases.
It's always worth remembering that the size of animals (especially livestock) has varied through history, so a Medieval cow could have been between 4ft-5ft tall compared to the 5ft-6ft that we see on farms today. So as with anything else, make sure to choose the size which will look right with your miniatures!
There's less than 12 hours left on our Militia Miniatures - The Bad Guys! Kickstarter! It finishes at 6pm GMT on Saturday 10th November so make sure you've pledged before the deadline: LINK
We've got 55 excellent new 28mm sculpts produced by the extremely talented Paolo Fabiani and so far we've unlocked all of our stretch goals and added some really nice extras, including another 11 sculpts!
At £4000 we unlocked a resin Humvee which is now available as an Add-On, priced at £15. It comes with both the M19 and M60 gun options, as well as a free gunner figure!
At £5000 we unlocked the Leaders for each set, adding another 5 sculpts to the project. These will be an Add-On, at £2 each or £8 for all 5!
At £6000 we unlocked the Robots! We acquired these from Crossover Miniatures earlier this year and there are three sets, Firing / Advancing / Command. Each set comes with two head options as well. Currently they come in packs of 4 so we're sculpting a 5th robot for each pack and these are available at £6 per pack of 5.
At £7000 we added a completely new set to the project, so the European Terrorists are now available to add to your Pledge, as well as their Leader!
Why should I pledge?
> Discounted prices - All of these packs will retail at £9.50 when they are launched on our website, so you get to buy them at £8.00 per pack (15% discount) as well as being the first to get your hands on them!
> Bulk discounts - Once you reach 10 packs, the price will come down to £7.50 per pack, saving you even more and making it £75.00 for 50 figures!
> Flat rate shipping - £3 in the UK, £5 for the Rest of the World, no matter how many packs you buy.
> Quick turnaround - Our first Kickstarter was shipped within 2 months of the campaign ending so you'll receive your pledge quickly. We've been in the industry for over 20 years now (Pendraken Miniatures) so we've got the experience and the staff to get these into production and into your hands. We're estimating January for delivery but we'd hope to have everything shipped a bit quicker.
> Free bases - All figures will come with free MDF bases, either squares or circles, 20mm or 25mm, your choice.
Pack A - Is the rank and file guys that make up the bulk of any bad guy army! Armed with rifles, they come with the ability to miss every shot they take, leaving your heroes to mow them down in search of glory!
Pack B - Is our 'Specials', armed with a mixture of swords, grenades, baseball bats, RPG's and more! These figures could be mixed in with Pack A for more variety, or used as command figures or personalities in your games.
South American Cartel Soldiers
These guys look like they might have kidnapped someone's daughter...
Usually found attacking downed choppers, and yes, he is wearing a wedding dress...!
A more formal henchman, for your affluent crazy General...
These guys just want a single night of freedom...
Brewing up Moonshine in the wilderness or directing tourists down the wrong road, we certainly wouldn't trust these folks!
We've also added a 6th set to our campaign, so you can now also choose:
1980's European Terrorists!
These will be individual character types:
- A suited Colombian drug lord for our Cartel soldiers.
- An African general for our Insurgents, a bit like an Idi Amin style figure.
- A Republican Guard officer, not quite the obvious candidate but similar.
- A more rotund chap for the Survivalists, who definitely wants to to make America great again...
- A female hacker type for our Rioters, co-ordinating things on social media.
- A well dressed chap in a suit for our Terrorists.
You can also choose to add any of the figures from our previous Kickstarter at only £2 per figure! Simply add that amount to your pledge and we'll include them for you.
Once you've had a look through the packs, calculate your total, head over to Kickstarter and make your pledge:
1-9 packs = £8 per pack 10+ packs = £7.50 per pack
Add as many Humvee's as you'd like:
£15 per vehicle (comes with both M60 and M19, and a gunner figure)
Add any Leaders you'd like:
£2 per figure £8 for 5!
Add any packs of Robots that you'd like:
£6 per pack of 5 figures (Available in packs of Firing / Advancing / Command)
Add any of the previous KS Mercenaries:
£2 per figure
£3 in the UK £5 outside the UK
There's not long left now, so make sure to pledge before the campaign ends!
"Right then guys," said Granger, knocking Bennett's feet off the table and dropping a pile of folders in their place. "As we all know, the whole world's gone to sh*t and no one knows what's going on anymore. We're suddenly in demand again and we've got some jobs to choose from." Picking up the folders, he started passing them out to the assembled group. "We've got offers from in South America, Africa, Europe, North America and the Middle East so it's up to you guys to decide".
It's been a while but we're back with another 50 fantastic 28mm sculpts! As with our first Kickstarter, we want to produce miniatures that aren't tied down to a specific conflict, allowing them to be used in all manner of games and systems.
We've got: - South American cartel soldiers - African insurgents - Republican guard - European rioters - American survivalists
This time our inspiration has come mainly from Hollywood, so we'll leave you to guess which movies we've been watching!
Our initial funding target is £3000 and there's also some stretch goals ready to go, including Humvees, leaders, robots and more!
Everything kicks off at 6pm on Saturday 27th October. The campaign will run for 14 days so make sure to get your pledges in!
