We are asking for your help to launch the start of a new range of WW2 UK & Commwealth inspired white metal 28mm scale miniatures.

All of the miniatures have already been hand sculpted and the funds you contribute will be used to create master and production moulds, pay for casting costs and, hopefully, to further expand this range.

Stretch Goals

Size & Scale

The figures are 28mm scale, most measuring 28mm from foot to eye with the NCO's slightly taller.

All of the miniatures are multi-part, all with separate interchangeable heads and most with separate arms/weapons some of which are interchangeable.

What's Next?

We have lots of stretch goals that we hope to reveal as the project progresses and we will eventually be able to have all of the options needed for battle against marines from space in the grim darkness of a near future or the Afrika Korps in the heat of a WW2 desert.

All figures sculpted by Gary Shillingford and George Fairlamb.

We would like to thank -

Matt Walford - for his exceptional painting skills in bringing our figures to life and for all the encouragement he's given us over the last few years.

Risks and challenges

We have aimed to eliminate as many problems as possible before launching this Kickstarter by having all of the major work already done, the figures have been sculpted and we have most of the master figures ready to go into production. We have kept the Kickstarter simple to avoid any delays and make the project a success.
Once funded we aim to despatch all rewards by 30th September 2019 but we hope to be able to send them out before this date.
