Thank you for your amazing support! In the final hour of the project, we present our 60k Bonus stretch goal. If we get there, we will make this awesome steam powered renaissance war machine available to backers for a special KS price of £20.
The Daughters of the Burning Rose is a new force of gothic medieval themed warriors, suitable for use in a range of different wargaming settings and game systems.
We are creating all our figures in resin to ensure the highest quality miniatures for gamers and collectors.
Here some some close up examples of the quality and detail you can expect. Left to Right: Cyblade Assassin, Lord Abbess, Lightning Mage.

Assemble your forces for battle!
You can choose any rewards up to the value of your pledge. If you want more units, upgrades or characters as we unlock them, simply adjust your pledge to the right level.
You will be able to add more funds in our Pledge Manager, so don't worry if your pledge isn't exactly right.
Burning Rose Modular Infantry
You can choose units of either five or ten women. All the various options for each parts are shown below. We are going to reveal new options throughout the project and you will be able to select any combination of parts in the Pledge Manager.
For each five woman combat squad you want as a reward, pledge £16. For a ten women combat squad, pledge £30.
Specialist and Heavy weapons (such as the Flame Thrower in the image) are optional extras and are not included in the base price, but two specialist weapons are included with the Specialist Weapon Upgrade Pack.
Burning Rose Characters
Character models can lead your force into battle, or provide you with specialist abilities. Initially we have six characters you can pledge for.
Our Kickstarter Exclusive Inquisitor-Marechal Salus is FREE with all pledges of £40 or more and is also available as a separate add-on.
If we exceed our funding goal we will be able to make many more miniatures available and will work throughout the project run to expand the offering.
The miniatures for this project are sculpted in the same scale as our existing Regiments range. A typical human is 28mm to eye level and 31mm to top of head. The proportions and “heroic” scaling are designed to fit in with female models from similar ranges.
Here are some scale reference images showing our models alongside figures from other companies.

After the campaign ends, you will receive a voucher equal to the value of your pledge.You can use your voucher in our online Pledge Manager to select the units and characters you want. We will automatically include any freebies your pledge includes.
You will be asked to pay for shipping when you complete the Pledge Manager. We only aim to cover our actual costs, not make a profit on shipping charges.
We are going to use a new tracked shipping option for all pledges which will be faster and more reliable than our existing shipping services.
We think it is worth the small extra cost, and will be moving our regular website orders over to the new system in the near future.
Our estimated shipping charge is.
- UK : £5 per shipment
- EU : £10 per shipment
- USA : £10 per shipment
- Rest of the World : £10-15 per shipment depending on your location.
The shipping charge will only be higher than this estimate if our shipping provider increase their prices before we start shipping.
We intend to ship pledges in the most efficient way so that everyone gets their rewards as soon as possible. We will be splitting rewards into waves. Backers who pledged earlier and parcels which contain only items we are already producing will be given priority.
If it is possible with our pledge manager (we are still looking at options) we will set up a split shipping option for those who would like to pay an extra shipping charge to get some of their models faster.
We have given a delivery date of October 2018, however, this is a very rough estimate. We hope to start shipping pledges well before October but as we are doing all manufacturing in house, it is very difficult to predict how long it will take to complete the project. A great deal depends on how much funding we get and how many new units are unlocked.
Our current manufacturing capacity will allow us to ship approximate £10-15k of pledges per month on top of fulfilling our regular store orders. We will continue working on our Afterlife game and other new releases while we fulfil the Kickstarter. We will hire extra staff and expand our facilities to speed up production if we need to.
Thank you for your support!
We want you to get involved in our project! If you have any questions, suggestions, ideas or other feedback, please leave a comment and we will get back to you as soon as we can!
Risks and challenges
We have been designing and manufacturing high quality resin miniatures since 2011, and have previously delivered two Kickstarter projects.
We have assembled a great team of skilled artists, mould makers and casters and are very confident we can make a success of The Daughters of the Burning Rose.
We have already sculpted a number of components and character models and will be previewing lots of resin models during the campaign, so you can see the quality of reward you can expect.
If we raise a significant amount more than our funding goal, we have a plan in place to hire extra staff and build a second manufacturing unit dedicated to Kickstarter production.
We have built a great reputation for high quality products and customer service and we will do everything we can to ensure our backers have a great experience.
With any project of this scale, there is always potential for delays and problems which we cannot predict. We promise to be 100% open and honest with backers and post regular updates on how we are working to overcome any issues to maintain your trust.
