About Our Prussian Themed Kickstarter

Hello and welcome to our 2nd kickstarter, where we hope with your support and backing to be able to fund the expenses involved in producing our dwarven army of Prussian Scrunts. Bob has already spent  a great many hours over the past few weeks constructing and sculpting the miniatures to make these sets. As you can see from the pictures below the miniatures are based on previously cast bodies with lots of new sculpting green added. The rewards for backing this project will be high quality metal castings of the miniatures featured in this Kickstarter, they are available at a lower price than the eventual retail price, plus for early birds there are some extra treats, such as a handsculpted metal/green miniature by Bob or concept drawing artwork.

So please take a look at the pictures below showing the sets Bob has made We hope that you like them and that you decide to back our project.Thanks Bob & Jackie

Early Bird Rewards

There is limited availability for these early bird rewards (see pledge levels), so don't delay. There are only 10 metal/green unique individual sculpts waiting for the first backers who pledge £99 or more. No two are identical and all have been assembled and green sculpted by Bob Olley. So here's an example of the handsculpted metal/green you will get, note: some will be steampunk versions

Early Bird £99 Pledge Level Limited to 10

Finally, for the Big Spender Pledge it is limited to just ONE backer who will get the only metal/green sculpt available of a Prussian Trooper delivering schnaps in flagons with the aid of his trusty dachshund to the frontline. Here's the picture of the metal/green you will recieve

About The Rewards

The miniatures are cast in high quality metal, which may contain some lead, they are not toys and are not suitable for children.

What's the Scale of our miniatures?

On average they measure 22 to 23mm from foot to eye level. They fit scale wise with existing Olleys Armies Miniatures scrunt ranges. If you intend to use them alongside other companies 28mm miniatures, they may not be compatible scale wise, so check the photo below to help you decide.

Who Are We?

Olleys Armies Miniatures has been making its own line of miniatures since 2003 and is very much a family business. Bob is the talent behind all our amazing sculpts, James our son is the talent behind the artwork and I (Jackie) am responsible for all the clerical, packing and website stuff. We love what we do and we really hope that there are enough people out there who want what we make.


Funding Goal of £2,664

Here's a list to explain what we need the money for and how we reached the figure for the goal we have set.

  • £133.20 Kickstarter Fee

  • £560 Bob's Design Fee

Thank you for taking the time to consider our project from Jackie, Bob & James

Risks and challenges

Regards risks, Bob has already made the sculpts for this project, so apart from any illness or injury preventing him from completing the early bird reward metal/green sculpts we don't foresee any problems. We will be using Griffin Moulds Ltd an experienced quality moulder and caster to provide castings of the sculpts, they have been responsible for my Olleys Armies miniatures castings for the last 8 years or more, so I know they are reliable and produce top quality metal castings. I have set a delivery date of December 2014, we hope most of the sets wil be ready to send out earlier than this, but holidays and illness could always delay moulding and casting at Griffin so we want to allow for the unforseen. Postage is a risk outside our control, we will use Royal Mail or other reliable courier and we will keep a proof of postage. Orders with a replacement value over £20 will be sent signed for or tracked with increased insurance. The cost of postage has also proved difficult to calculate exactly for each pledge level, we do not want to make money on the postage or lose either, so for each UK customers' reward we will decide whether 1st or 2nd class is appropriate depending on the postage allowance.
