Hi, and welcome to Tiny Terrain Model's "War in Chechnya" Kickstarter, to launch a new range of highly detailed 28mm metal miniatures sculpted by leading miniature creator Igor Karpov. The range includes Chechen fighters and Russian VDV Recon troops.
Our aim is to put into production 20 new metal figures (+ stretch goals), and is aimed at wargamers looking for high quality miniatures to play the 1st Chechen war (although as you will see the figures are suited to many other modern theatres as well).
Our aim is simple, to produce some of the best Russian and Chechen miniatures on the market, which are sized to fit right alongside other popular manufactures ranges, so you can use them either in small skirmish games on their own or in larger games with your current collection.
Tiny Terrain Models already designs and sells a range of metal 28mm modern miniatures via its own website www.tinyterrainmodels.co.uk and when late last year we saw the incredible sculpts that Igor had created for the Chechen Wars we knew we had to release them. All the sculpts have been hand made by Igor using traditional, non digital techniques, and are ready to go straight into production. Igor is one of the worlds finest 28mm sculptors and is the man behind the hugely popular website www.lead-adventure.com and the recent very successful Bruegelburg Kickstarter.
The master sculpts are finished and ready for moulding, so the KS is simply to finance the production moulds and make the figures. To be on the safe side we are predicting delivery early in 2018, but we hope to ship much sooner. 5 of the stretch goals are already sculpted, so depending on how many are unlocked, extras may take a little longer to produce. Please Note access to the stretch goals are exclusively for those backers at pledge level "All In" only.
So you can see exactly what you will get, the images below are of the master sculpts from which your miniatures will be made. No 3D renders, drawings, or fancy graphics, just the sculpts:
All in - £50 - All 20 miniatures and access to the stretch goals:

Stretch #8 is a very special goal, giving backers at the "ALL in" pledge level a unique discount code which will give them a lifetime 10% discount off all Tiny Terrain Models products purchased via our webstore www.tinyterrainmodels.co.uk . Many backers have asked if we were going to offer our existing products as "Add ons" to this Kickstater, but instead we have decided that if we raise £7250 we will give a unique 10% discount code which can be used on all existing and all future Tiny Terrain Models products. This code will ship with your miniatures in early 2018. We hope Stretch #8 will be a gift that keeps giving as we grow our ranges of 28mm Modern miniatures, MDF buildings and accessories and a range of 1/50 modern military vehicles which are due out in the New Year.
Stretch #9 - Open at £8000 (FREE to backers who pledge "All In") - Chechen AT Support Set #1 (UNLOCKED)
Stretch #10 - Open at £8750 (FREE to backers who pledge "All In") - Chechen AT Support Set #2 (UNLOCKED)
We are also offering the option to add both packs for £35.......the smart move if you want all Igor's sculpts. No need to add any additional monies for postage for these extra packs, its on us as a thank you for giving us your support.
To buy any of the add ons, simply increase your current pledge by £20 or £35 depending if you want 1 or both packs.
28mm MDF Buildings Kit "Add ON". This MDF kit includes all the parts needed to make both the buildings shown below. They are supplied flat packed and unpainted.
Designed by John Banks, the two buildings match the ruined warehouse given away for FREE as Stretch #3, and are perfect if you're looking to add some quick cover for your Chechen games.
Although this kit was designed exclusively for our Kickstarter, due to the fantastic support shown for our campaign by all the pledgers we have discounted this kit by 25%, and offer it at the incredible price of £15 (yes that's £7.50 per 28mm building!) Simply add £15 on to your current pledge total (including shipping). You can of course buy more than 1 set, just add multiples of £15 as required.
When the backer form is sent to you at the end of the Kickstarter just tell us how many MDF Buildings Kits you want, and we will ship them with your miniatures.
To avoid delays in producing the buildings we have to limit this offer to just 50 kits, so if you want a couple of packs don't wait, please increase your pledge now.
Risks and challenges
We see little risk in this project as the sculpts are already made, and Tiny Terrain Models have successfully launched 40 new 28mm miniatures over the last 12 months via our website.
We have a mould maker and caster ready to complete the production work, and from a logistics point of view we are used to shipping worldwide, already doing so on a weekly (sometimes daily) basis.
We are available to answer any questions you may have via our website (www.tinyterrainmodels.co.uk), our facebook page (search for Tiny Terrain Models) or Twitter (@tinyterrain).Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
