The title states ‘28mm’, however, the figures are 40mm tall - I wanted the Ogres to fit into 28mm armies but be bigger and taller.
I have alway liked the Renaissance, and also Ogres and wanted to combine the two. There are the following designs: 4 x command figures, 2 x officers, 3 x two handed swordsogres, 3 x halberd, 3 x hand guns, 3 x swords and shields, 3 x cavalry. I would like to add other figures, such as pike and artillery, but that would have to wait dependant on the success of this project
Above are the various figures that link to the ‘pledges’ and ‘stretch goal’ - below are some pictures of the ‘renders’
£1,500 - musician
£3,000 - standard bearer
£4,500 - office attacking
£6,000 - officer standing
If the pledges reach higher than the above amount, it will be open to you to suggest the next stages.
If successful, before sending out the orders, there will be an opportunity to add further figures.
I have put ‘July 2019’ to allow time for any problems.

Risks and challenges
There have been three successful kickstarters before this one, all had their share of difficulties. The last two had difficulties with both sculptors and casters which caused considerable delays, and unsealistic timescales, which resulted in over a year to see the ‘pledges’ being delivered - both of these will have the final ‘pledges’ sent out by September 2018.
Learning from mistakes:
- timescales: realistic time scales to allow for problems with casting and design, this projects delivery date will be for July 2019
- sculptors/casters: using just the one person to do the 3D printing and casting (a timescale has already been set up)
- 3D design: all of the 3D design has been finished and paid for and sent to the caster
- (14 days)
