Who Are Troublemaker Games?

We are an established wargames development company who design & supply plastic, metal and resin miniatures for wargames retail companies, whose sculptors also have experience doing freelance work for other companies such as Mantic Games (For whom we sculpted, for example, their range of 28mm scale plastic terrain kits, as well as various other plastic & resin kits).

We have previously run & managed six other Crowdfunding Campaigns, raising a total of £58.578 to deliver plastic and metal models for the 6mm scale wargame range, Defeat In Detail (1 2 3 4 5) and our Plastic Wargames Terrain kits (1).

We have delivered all the plastic and metal kits from all five of our own crowdfunding campaigns to our customers, and all models (other than Campaign Exclusive Limited Edition pieces) are now available for retail purchase through Vanguard Miniatures as the "Defeat In Detail" and "Troublemaker Games Plastic Terrain Kits" ranges.

Vanguard's own Crowdfunder (which we oversaw as Campaign Manager) has itself also been fully delivered.

Our wargaming kits in this funding campaign are intended to be compatible with a wide range of Tabletop Wargames and Tabletop Roleplay games.

What We Need & What You Get

We have several designs of 28mm scale Nuns with Laser Guns(!) kits already sculpted, but without a crowdfunding campaign it would be too expensive for us to afford to put them into production, so your interest and support at this stage means we can bring these designs to retail... and your gaming tables!

Yes, it is true, your very own gaming tables can be graced with the presence of this astonishingly silly model set!

As we cross stretch goals we'll be unlocking more model kits, and hopefully adding Free bonuses to existing pledges too...

The Kits

The following kits are available to pledge for at the outset of this campaign:

Nuns With Laserguns Infantry Squad.

(Metal)

Nuns with Missile Launchers Squad.

(Metal)

Mother Tree'Zaa, of the Calculated Cut.

(Metal)

Little Donkey Cavalry.

(Metal)

Note: Little Donkey Cavalry come in multiples of 5, with 6 weapon arms (4x Cruciform spears, 1x Microwave Gun, 1x Sword).

The Nunmobile.

(Resin)

The Nunmobile is a multipart resin vehicle kit. At 8.3cm long it is sized for carrying 5x Nuns, plus a crew of two Sisters (1x Driver, 1x Heavy Machinegunner).

The Nunmobile is also known as the Virgin Mobile, for a joke that only makes sense to British users of a particular company's portable telephones.

.

Pipe Organ Artillery

(Resin)

The Pipe Organ is a large multi-part resin artillery piece, served by three Nun Crew.

A fearsome multi-barrelled artillery piece that fires rocket-assisted projectiles, the Pipe Organ also makes a fun toot toot noise whenever it's triggered.

Sister Bryce Leah, The Nunja Nun!

(Metal)

Sister Bryce Leah is a practitioner of Nunjitsu, martial art of the Nuns.

No other Nunja Nun is as proficient at hitting her enemies with Nunchucks and/or making you smile.

Heavy Mortar Artillery

(Resin)

The Heavy Mortar is a large multi-part resin artillery piece, served by three Nun Crew.

Nun Heavy Weapons Squad!

(Metal)

The Nun heavy weapons squad includes three fireteams, each operating a different heavy weapon type - a Laser Cannon, a Heavy Machinegun, and a Medium Cannon.

Also included are two ammunition handlers, a spotter with binoculars, and an ammunition case.

Nuns with Squad Support Weapons!

(Metal)

This set contains 3 Nuns with a variety of squad support weapons:

1x Nun with Sniper Rifle

1x Nun with Plasmic Discharger

1x Nun with Microwave Gun

Plus 3x Plastic Bases

Nuns with Rotary Blade Swords and Laser Pistols

(Metal)

This set contains 3 heroic Nuns, carrying insane crazy sword-blade-DIY tools, and some totally normal laser pistols.

And three plastic bases.

Nun Command Squad!

NOTE: This squad is still a work-in-progress: It will be finished to the same standard as the other squads shortly after the campaign ends.

(Metal)

This set will contain five Nuns:

- 1x Nun with Petard Launcher.

- 1x Nun with Holy Icon

- 1x Nun Army Commander, pointing at something for her underlings to mercifully attack.

- 2x Rifle Nuns (Random poses)

Psychic Nun Summoning The Ghost With Holes In It

(Metal)

This set contains one Psychic Nun in a dramatic "summoning" pose, and one Ghost with eye-holes and a big smiley mouth cut out. A "holey ghost", as it were...

...and two plastic bases.


Nun Shotgun Team

NOTE: This squad is still a work-in-progress: It will be finished to the same standard as the other squads shortly after the campaign ends.

(Metal)

The Nun Shotgun Teams are composed of elite squads of the most battle-hardened veteran Nuns. Whisper their names quietly and with respect, lest their choleric spirits rise in ire.

They are... The Shotnuns.

This set contains 3x Shotnuns, and 3x Plastic Bases.

.

.

On previous crowdfunding campaigns we've been able to give away free exclusive crowdfunder-only character models to every contributor, and we'd like to do something similar this time around, if contributions are strong enough!


Multiple Pledges?

If you would like to pledge for multiple rewards, select the reward you'd like to receive, and increase your pledge amount by the price total of any extra rewards you want to add.

EG: If you have pledged for a Nuns with Laserguns! squad (£20), and want to also receive a Mother Tree'Zaa model, add an extra £4 (For a total of £24).

After the end of the Kickstarter campaign, you will receive a survey that will ask you to confirm which combination of model kit rewards you would like to receive.

Risks and challenges

Potential Risks?

We anticipate there being no special risks to the products in this crowdfunding campaign.

The prototype CAD designs for the various kits have already been sculpted, and we have often worked with the production companies we intend to use to mould and produce our kits.

We have estimated a January delivery date for the products in this crowdfunding campaign, and anticipate no problems in meeting this deadline. In fact we'd hope to have them delivered before that.

We have run 5 of our own crowdfunders in the past, and managed another, and all six crowdfunders have delivered on their pledges.
