Hello and welcome to our 3rd kickstarter, where we hope with your support and backing to be able to fund the expenses involved in producing Armies of the Scrunt Empire. Since our last Kickstarter Bob has devoted a great many hours constructing and sculpting the miniatures to make these sets.We just love these gas masked scrunts and gas masked dachshunds, we would be thrilled to be able to get moulds made for them and to add them to the Olleys Armies Miniatures lines already on our website. That will only happen if we can get the funding we need from this Kickstarter project. 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

Risks and challenges

Risks and challenges

Regards risks, Bob has already made the sculpts for this project, so we don't foresee any problems there. 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 we know they are reliable and produce top quality metal castings. We have set a delivery date of July 2015, it's possible that we may be able to send out rewards before July, but we want to allow for the unforseen problems that might arise. Although it's very unlikely, sudden price increases in metal before we can fullfill the rewards would cause us a problem. Postage is a risk outside our control, items getting delayed or even lost, 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.
