  • Company: $67

Thanks and please let us know if you have any more questions!

We here at ClearHorizon Miniatures started in May of 2013 with the release of our Drop Pod kit and then shortly after, our first range, the Hell Divers. 

Since then we have grown to include two different factions with almost 15 different miniature packs and vehicle kits. 

We’re very active in the online and offline communities. We most recently had a booth at the Gamex Stratigecon convention in Los Angeles and we sell our line through our website as well as retail channels with Brookhurst hobbies carrying our entire line at their store in Garden Grove, California.

We have two new ranges that we need your help in getting into production!

 The Ranges

Epsilon Squad
Epsilon Squad

Epsilon Squads are a Human combat force outfitted with hard-hitting weaponry and Exo-skeleton armored suits. Epsilon Squads fight on the front line, whether establishing an Orbital Beachhead or taking a city back from enemy forces.

The individual Epsilon Squad trooper is a force to be reckoned with and whole platoons can be transported via Raven-Class VTOLs to strike at the heart of the enemy force.

    Epsilon Squads operate in teams of six that can then be further broken down into fireteams of three or two (depending on the tactical situation).
 
    The Hura Technocracy represents an alien species known as the Hura. While possessing traits of both crabs and mantis insects, the Hura are an advanced species that use their technology to give them every advantage. Not only do they have a strong chitin outer skeleton that can deflect blows almost as well as most basic Human body armor, they utilize a powerful series of miniature, close-contact forcefield generators that provide an extra layer of defense without limiting their strength and speed. Their weaponry, nicknamed "Lightning Rods', strike out with powerful beams that can fry not only organic material but any unshielded electronics as well.
    The Hura will often trade technology (often of a lower quality than their own equipment) for the service of Mercenaries in their border conflicts and have found an occasional "ally" in humanity. But only as long as it serves their needs. The Hura themselves prefer to let “lower” species do most of the fighting when they can, but can be a formidable fighting force themselves. They can also be exceedingly pragmatic leading to the impression that they are very callous. Despite this they are avid explorers that have even been known to use human epsilon teams as hired muscle for long term exploration missions.
    The Hura will strive to maintain a strict 8-Hura fireteam at all times, although they have been known to split into two 4-strong fireteams under times of extreme duress.

Pledges and Rewards

    Note: All Pledges include US Shipping Costs and all International Pledges will have the appropriate costs per pledge added on. Please see pledge for more info.

Why Should You Back This Kickstarter?

You should back if you love 15mm Sci-Fi miniatures as much as we do and want to see new and unique sets!

This is also a great opportunity for someone new to the 15mm Sci-Fi scene.  A Platoon pledge will get you two small starter armies for 15mm Sci-Fi Gaming and we'll even be offering Gruntz Unit Data cards for download to help build up your armies!

You'll also get them before anyone else (We guarantee that! No retail sales until every KS backer has received their pledge!) and at a discount off of retail prices. (We haven't set the retail prices yet, but it will most likely be around the $8 mark)

If you have any questions please ask!

Stretch Goals

Once we pass our funding goals we have several plans in place to expand on the basic squads, including heavy support and more figure poses.  Everyone with Fireteam level or higher pledges will be able to either a) add-on the new options or b) trade out a squad for them.
 
 

 As we get closer to the funding goal we will reveal the options!

Why Should you Trust Us?

We have a long history in the 15mm Sci-Fi community and are an active participant in it. We also have a history of producing quality miniatures.   Our miniatures have been reviewed by the print publication "Miniature Wargames with Battlegames" as well as across the web. Our Hell Diver and Mercenary ranges have been very successful and have been well received.

What are people saying about our Kickstarter?

"ClearHorizon miniatures' realization of this terrific line of miniatures has really captured our attention with their latest releases. The concept is solid and the execution in design has been brilliant. We are all looking forward immensely to what is yet to come and hope that the Kickstarter campaign delivers everything required for Harold and his team to punch through with an industry shaking product. We will be watching this develop with eager anticipation... "

Risks and challenges

We are confident that we will able to fulfill this Kickstarter on time. We've already started the sculpting and now we just need to be able to fund the additional sculpting and production costs

We have a talented sculptor with years of experience at some of the biggest miniature companies around and we utilize a contract caster that has the highest level of quality control and many, many years of experience with mold making and casting.

We also have backup plans in case things go sideways and are well prepared for any unforeseen complications.
