About

When a German guy from Connecticut and an American guy from Maine share a love for history and wargaming, awesome things happen.... just like our new Russian Village.  The village consists of HDF (high density fiber board) laser cut kits for five buildings and eight accessory packs containing fences, carts and livestock buildings.  All kits are designed to have a lot of detail, the buildings open up for access during gaming and are easy to assemble and paint. They are fit for 28 mm (1:56) scale.

WHY A KICKSTARTER?

This kickstarter offers backers the opportunity to pick up an entire village or just the buildings they like.

For us the kickstarter is an opportunity to showcase a complete village with all details rather than gradually adding individual buildings to the shop. We also hope to spread our client base and lay the foundation for further growth of our brand, which is only possible if we can fund additional lasers and workroom.

WHAT PLEDGES ARE AVAILABLE?

After long hours of discussion we have decided to only allow four different pledge levels. There will be no stretch goals as we could not agree on what buildings or packs should be add-ons. Backers will have access to all kits from the start, no surprises and no suspension.

You can pledge

MIX AND MATCH  Pledge $ 1, choose the kits you want and at the cost up to  a maximum of $ 99. Shipping cost will be added to your pledge. Details can be found below under shipping.

CREATE YOUR OWN VILLAGE Pledge $ 100, choose the kits you want and add the cost with no maximum limit. Shipping cost will be added to your pledge. Details can be found below under shipping.

RUSSIAN VILLAGE SET  Pledge $ 220 and simply get the whole village set (farm buildings, houses # 1 and # 2, log cabins, church, livestock buildings, picket fence, rustic high wooden fence, lattice fence, hay cart and wooden cart). Shipping will be added to your pledge. Details can be found below under shipping. If you want additional items, you must choose the "Create your own village" Reward as the set can not be altered.

NAPOLEON INVADES RUSSIA / OPERATION BARBAROSSA Pledge  $ 800 and get the whole village set, assembled, painted and decorated. You can get the village ready for your WWII game (Operation Barbarossa) or Napoleonic game (Napoleon invades Russia). These sets are unique and only available once. Figures, animals and plants shown in the pictures are not included. For these two unique villages no shipping cost will be added.

NAPOLEON NEAR BORODINO / ON THE WAY TO STALINGRAD

Pledge $ 800 and get the whole village set, assembled, painted and decorated. You can get the village ready for your WWII game (On the way to Stalingrad) or Napoleonic game (Napoleon near Borodino). These sets are unique and only available once. Figures, animals and plants shown in the pictures are not included. For these two unique villages no shipping cost will be added.

Both sets also include the accessories shown above.

If you decide to create your own village ($100 and up) or mix & match different kits ($1 and up), here are the individual amounts for each kit:  

You simply add up the amounts per kit and enter the sum as your pledge in the pledge manager (using the "MANAGE YOUR PLEDGE" button). You will need to tell us exactly what you want one more time when you receive the survey after the kickstarter closes.

Example 1: You really like the log cabins, church and picket fence. These are $ 30 + $ 40 + $ 6.50 = $76.50. Then you choose the $ 1 "MIX AND MATCH" pledge, enter $ 76.50 and kickstarter will add shipping for your country. 

Example 2: If you wanted two sets of the log cabins, the church and the picket fence, the final amount would be $ 106.50 (2x $30 + $ 40 + $ 6.50) and you must choose the "CREATE YOUR OWN VILLAGE" reward and kickstarter will add shipping for your country.

SHIPPING

Apart from designing the buildings, calculating the shipping cost was the hardest part of the kickstarter preparation. Depending on your pledge amount and destination country, kickstarter will add shipping cost as shown below.

 CUSTOMS, VAT and OTHER CHARGES

Backers outside the US are responsible for covering any custom charges or taxes applicable in their country. We will fill the customs declaration with the total amount of your pledge (not including the shipping cost). No exceptions will be made.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Risks and challenges

This is our first kickstarter. It is a bit like opening a box of chocolates, you never know what is inside. All designs are completed and ready for production. We are committed to start shipping in March 2018 in the order of backing.
