I could not design a range of French Revolutionary War Models withought looking into the dramatic events in July 1789-93

The Reign of Terror began on September 5, 1793 with a declaration by Robespierre that Terror would be "the order of the day." It ended on July 27, 1794 when Robespierre was removed from power and executed. The Committee of Public Safety. 

Having already had several succesful kickstarters I wanted to do something rather special, The guillotine, the symbol of Revolution would have to be made, this issue being i wanted the Stage, and make it big enough to miniatures on, and even more around!

The main issue is that in metal the kit would be huge, then a chance conversation with Steve from Sarissa came up with an idea!

A crew was required to man  Madame Guillotine, and feed Marats lust for heads!

so we got some made.



The Mob

whilst  Madame Guillotine may be an iconic image of the Revolution, the mob, ever demading more heads, so  a new range of models was required, a total of 16 miniatures, to give you a chance to paint, collect and game with.

To the Bastille!

I like the idea of making a game based around the Storming the Les Invalids, Bastille and Versailles, to name a just a few possible Historic Actions, the mob needs its adversaries the Legendry and loyal to the King, the Swiss Guards!

Swiss Guards

Sorry the where not at the Bastille, but they were all massaced  at the Tuileries palace, the same models are used for the Garde Francaise!

THE AUGUST 10TH ATTACK ON THE TUILERIES!!

A total of 18  Miniatures depict this legendary Unit,  the unit comprised of both Musketeers (not the ones you are thinking about, however they are planned for later this year!) and Grenadiers.

In 1793 a levy of unmarried men,   24 unique and rather rag-tag looking miniatures,  allow you to either build a whole army for the varius campaigns of 1793, Flanders, Spain, Vendee and Toulon to name just a few. These models can also be added into your mobs!!

Maximilien Robespierre "incorruptible"

It would be almost impossible to make a range of miniatures withought making a Robespierre, depicted with a broken law, awaiting his fate!


Stretch Goals

FREE MODEL OF ROBESPIERRE IF WE HIT £1500



Robespierre, all pledges will recieve this model free if we hit £1500


Robespierre, all pledges will recieve this model free if we hit £1500

£2000  the Mob miniatures will all be Guillotined!

yes, that is correct, and the  mobmodels will be head swapped, moved around a bit and 16 extra models made!

£3000 Cart with Aristocrats, Sarissa will make a MDF CART and a metal horse and two Artistocrats will be made! an additinal £6 pledge if we get to £3000

£4000 Marie Antoinette, a model of the Queen awaiting her fate, all pledges will get this model free

£5000  Royalist agent, all pledges will get this model free if we hit the stretch goal!

 The guillotine remained France's standard method of judicial execution until the abolition of capital punishment in 1981. 

Risks and challenges

The time line has been put back, I now have experience of Kickstarters and unseen stuff always happens Sarissa will produce the MDF KIT, and Griffin Moulds will once again produce all the moulds and castings!
