"Brave men stand with honor! A brotherhood stands ready to fight for humanity as a wall of Iron."
The main aim of this Kick Starter project is to make a set of resin model soldiers and an armoured personnel carrier to transport them. The soldiers are themed as "future warrior", with science fiction equipment and transport.
The different helmets for the project are already sculpted. Choosing any of the rewards or add-ons with figures in will allow you to pick your choice of heads to go with them.
The second aim is to be able to expand the army and offer support weapons for the soldiers. These will include hand-held flame throwers, plasma blasters and thermal guns.
The third aim is to offer heavy weapons. These will include a carriage mounted heavy weapon, with a choice of mounted weapon options. A mortar and missile launcher are also planned as part of this expansion. All the heavy weapons will come with two crew members.
If this Kick Starter project is successful then Ramshackle Games hopes to support this army further by adding more options and vehicles.
The first Rhebok APC is out of the mold now. Here are some images of the unpainted resin version. Please note that it will be supplied with a selection of gun choices.
So these are resin casts of the figures. The one standing up straight measures 29 mm to the top of the crest on his helmet, so they are true 28mm figures. The models are shown with the "Iron Brother" heads.
Please note that the image contains a scale shot with a Games Workshop Cadian Imperial Guard. This image is for scale purpose only and is used without authorisation from Games Workshop Ltd.
The models come as three parts: body, head and gun with hands attached.
The penultimate row shows the Weapons Specialists, left to right Plasma Blaster, Flame Thrower and Thermal Gun. It also shows an unfinished "work in production" image of the Squad Leader. He will have a choice of two guns.
Here are some images of the heavy weapons troopers. The carriage weapon is a resin cast but the soldiers are all still unfinished "work in production". They are shown with a selection of heads from the range.
The top row shows the version with integral gunner. The carriage guns come with all four barrels shown.
The bottom row shows the mortar and missile launcher options.
All the weapons will be supplied with a selection of 2 appropriate crew each.
Here are two images of the wheeled Rhebok. I will have a plough and hatch as turret alternative ready for the end of the project.
Below are images of the Rhebok with the new plough and cupola. Please note these are the master parts and will be cast in grey resin. The cupola is in two sections, so can be modded open or closed.
There is also a new back section almost finished. It needs rivets adding and some more detailing. This is the chemical tank section and allows the vehicle to be turned into a flame thrower or chemical attack variant.
And finally there is a third back section. This is longer for greater transport capacity. This back will only be available to pledgers who choose the 3 Rhebok reward level.

1 x resin Heavy Weapons set will be added to the £32 level pledges. This will consist of a choice of weapon from Missile Launcher, Mortar or Carriage Mounted Gun. All will come with an operator and a loader figure.
If you add more to your pledge level then you can choose to have these "add-on" options sent out with your reward. There is no limit to the amount of add-ons you can choose. When the campaign ends you will be sent a questionnaire and will be able to say which add-ons you want. Some of the add-ons are "locked", which means they will be available only if the stretch goal is reached. A message will be sent out when an add-on is "unlocked", and you can always add more to your pledge to take advantage of the new offers as they become available.

Risks and challenges
The models will be cast in resin as usual for Ramshackle Games products. The models are at the "work in progress" stage, so will just need finishing and the moulds making. There can be delays with materials arriving, but this is usually only a matter of a week or so to resolve. The main problem will be if the funding goes over the £2000 level it may take some time to process all the orders.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
