Flags of War has been part of the wargaming hobby for 8 years now. In this time we have grown to be one of the most extensive ranges of flags available. Specialising in 28mm flags we are now looking branch out with our own range of 28mm miniatures for the 1745 Jacobite Rebellion. 

Kickstarter has been chosen as a way to deliver our vision for a new range. Successful funding via Kickstarter will be the quickest way to deliver more miniatures than if we went straight to a general release pack by pack. The initial funding to deliver new miniatures can be very expensive and it is these setup costs that the Kickstarter will fund.

Our first Kickstarter under our sister company Funky Skull Games was a street gang game. After successfully funding the Kickstarter we were able to deliver all the pledges as promised. This experience has given us the confidence to say that we think we can do it again.

Our aim is to deliver the first batch of miniatures for the range. The first batch will contain 8 packs depicting the famous “Highland Charge”. This will include 5 packs of charging Highlanders and 3 packs of charging Lowlanders with 4 miniatures in each pack.

Free Figure - HRH Prince Charles Edward Stuart

All backers will receive a FREE mounted miniature of Prince Charles Edward Stuart. The Bonnie Prince was the overall Commander of the Jacobite army and was tasked by his father The Old Pretender James Stuart, to claim back his throne from King George II.

We have portrayed the Prince on his horse looking over his Loyal soldiers go into battle.

Funding Target

We have set our Funding amount at £6500 which will cover the initial first batch of sculpts along with all the casting that is required. If we are successful we hope to have a number of stretch goals that will give the backers a number of free figures, as well as some new units unlocked to add to your forces. Some of the stretch goals will include the likes of John Roy Stuart the famous Highland Office, the Royal Ecossais who were a French Regiment of exiled Scots, Alastair MacDonald of Keppoch who was killed at the battle of Culloden and a number of others.

  • All miniatures will be sculpted by the talented Nick Collier who has sculpted some of the finest historical ranges in the hobby.
  • Each miniature will be different and we promise that there will be no duplicates.
  • Casting will be completed by Griffin Moulds who are renowned for the high quality.
  • Flags will be done by myself and will include a number of new flags that have been made for the Kickstarter.

What do I get?

We have set a number of pledge levels that we hope will meet your gaming needs.  Each pledge level will give you a number of packs, which you can then select once the campaign has completed. This is the easiest way to do it as it will allow backers to select the unlocked units within their pledge.

Each pack that is part of the pledge is at a discounted rate than what it will be at retail. Each pledge level details the retail price after the Kickstarter. These discounted rates will only be offered to the Kickstarter backers.

Successful funding of more than our initial target will see the backers rewarded with a number of free miniatures that will be delivered along with the pledge. These figures will be available for purchase after the Kickstarter.

When will I get my pledges?

We have set the target of a 6 month turn around for delivery of your pledge. With what we are hoping to deliver we hope that we could have all of the backers by mid to late October 18.

What is the Future Plans for the range?

This is only the first batch for our planned range. On the list of future releases are Jacobite Artillery, Irish Piquets, Jacobite Cavalry, Government Highland Militia, British Government Line Infantry and much more. This is period that I have much interest in and I would love it to be the largest and most complete range available of The ’45. Like any range though it can only be as successful if the hobby supports it.

We have commissioned a number of sculpts with the majority of the Highlander packs ready to go for casting. We currently don’t have any sculpts of the Lowlanders but we have had an artist depict some concepts for the miniatures. If the funding is successful our sculptor will use the artwork and our detailed descriptions to complete the Lowlander packs and any of the stretch goals that are unlocked. You can see the quality of the greens that our sculptor provides great miniatures. Many will know Nick from the work he has done for Foundry, Bicorne, The Assault Group and Studio Miniatures.

Multi-arm poses

Each one of the Highland and Lowland figures armed with Broadswords comes supplied with separate arms. This will allow for the figures to have multi poses and make them unique while charging.

Comparison with Other Ranges

The aim of our range is to provide excitement when it is put on the painting table and even more so when on the gaming table.We chose our sculptor for the outstanding work he has done on his previous ranges. He provides a great passion for the period and gives us our wish to a have a "chunky" range for the 1745 Rebellion.

Highlanders

The Highlanders were the backbone of the Jacobite army with many of Scotland’s Clans raising their banners in the name of The Bonnie Prince. The smashing of the Government Lines at Prestonpans by the famous Highland charge has gained the Highlanders much Notoriety around the world. Along with this fame, has come many Myths about them that we hope to help dispel. The Highland Clans would lose many good men during the Rebellion, and none more so than at the fateful Battle of Culloden in 1746.

The 5 packs of Highlanders will include.

  • FOW-JAC01 Highland command Charging (including Officer, NCO, Standard Bearer and Piper)
  • FOW-JAC02 Highlanders (Muskets) – Shirts Charging (Shirted Highlanders charging with Muskets)
  • FOW-JAC03 Highlanders (Muskets) – Jackets Charging (Jacketed Highlanders charging with Muskets)
  • FOW-JAC04 Highlanders (Broadsword) – Shirts Charging (Shirted Highlanders charging with Broadswords)
  • FOW-JAC05 Highlanders (Broadsword) – Jacket Charging (Jacketed Highlanders charging with Muskets)

A number of these miniatures have already been sculpted and we will show more of these as the campaign goes on.

Lowlanders

There were large support and sympathy for the Stuarts amongst the Cities and Towns down the East coast of Scotland and along the Central belt. From Aberdeenshire to Edinburgh, many of the Lowlanders Volunteered to fight for what they saw as the true Heir to the Scottish Throne. The Lowlanders were mostly of Episcopalian faith and joined as they seen the Stuarts as the ones to deliver them from the domination of the Pro Hanoverian Presbyterian Church.

Please do not add shipping to your Kickstarter pledge as this dilutes the funds that are required to help start the range.

Shipping in the UK and Worldwide will be sent via Standard Parcel service from Royal Mail. I have been using their service for a number of years for my Flags of War business and I’m confident all parcels will be delivered when expected. If you have any concerns about delivery to your Country please contact us.

Risks and challenges

The main challenges involved in fulfilling any project like this are production delays, and ensuring a high standard of quality is maintained throughout the process. I believe that Flags of War is well placed to deal with these challenges and that your pledge to support us is low-risk.

● The sculptor we have on board comes with years of experience and is one of the most talented and efficient that we have come across in the hobby. We expect a very quick turnaround at getting the job done and are prepared to start as soon as the project funds.

● We already have a number of the miniatures sculpted which cuts down on the number that we need for when we fund.

● The casting of the miniatures will be handled by Griffin Moulds. Griffin has helped companies within the hobby for a number of years and has a reputation for the highest quality and professionalism.

Because of this, we are confident we can deliver a high-quality product and deliver all of our Kickstarter rewards in a timely fashion.
