Backstory

In a nutshell, I'm a Warmaster gamer who's after a Dogs of War army where I don't have to worry about out-of-production models, conversions and size differences between ranges. 10mm Landsknecht fit the bill here, plus they could find a home in an Empire or historical army as well.

The Miniatures

Each unit is made up of fifteen two-man strips (30 figures total). You'll get one Standard Bearer/Drummer strip and fourteen Rank and File strips (randomly selected from the six pictured below) for each unit in your pledge.

The figures are 10mm to the eye and about 11mm to the top of the head, the strips they are on are 6x18mm. They are designed to fit on 20x40mm bases (available as add-ons) without too much of the figure hanging over the 20mm width (for easy ranking and base contact).

Stretch Goals

Every stretch goal that's reached will result in a new unit being sculpted and made available. For example, if we reach the first stretch goal and you pledged at the "8 Units" level, you would receive eight units of Zweihänder or Pikeniere in any combination of your choice.

  • $4,500 - Landsknecht Pikeniere (Pikemen)
  • $7,000 - Landsknecht Armbrustschützen (Crossbowmen)
  • $9,500 - Landsknecht Arquebusiers (Handgunners)

After that "future plans" would include units of cavalry (both light and heavy) as well as characters and light, horse-drawn cannons.

Add-Ons

Extra units are available at a price determined by your pledge level:

  • $10.00 per extra unit if you pledged at the "2 Units" level.
  • $9.50 per extra unit if you pledged at the "4 Units" level.
  • $9.00 per extra unit if you pledged at the "8 Units" level.
  • $8.50 per extra unit if you pledged at the "12 Units" level.
  • $8.00 per extra unit if you pledged at the "16 Units" level.

Bases (20x40mm) are available as well (supplied from Renedra Ltd) at a price of $0.25 each.

Shipping

Once the units are ready to be shipped I will invoice you for an additional fee to cover postage. Please note that these are estimates. I was liberal when calculating the weight of the units so hopefully they won't be higher. Add-ons will affect the cost of postage.

United States

  • $3 if you pledged at the "2 Units" level.
  • $4 if you pledged at the "4 Units" level.

  • $19 if you pledged at the "8 Units" level.
  • $25 if you pledged at the "12 Units" level or above.

Risks and challenges

The Zweihänder have already been sculpted. If this Kickstarter fails to be funded I will still produce them, but they will likely be more expensive so I can cover my costs with a smaller production run.

The mold maker (Pete at http://cart.themouldmaker.com/) says he will be able to create the molds for them in early August. That means Bob should have time to sculpt the Pikemen, if they're unlocked, in July. Any stretch goals beyond that will likely delay delivery for another two months for each stretch goal.

I will hopefully have the molds in hand by September, so the casting can begin and I can start fulfilling the pledges. I'm hoping everyone will have their figures by November, 2014 at the latest, stretch goals will obviously affect this however.
