 Hello Folks and welcome to Venus 1888, a 28mm Victorian Science Fiction range from Dragon Bait Miniatures. This range has been in the making for over a year and involves such talented sculptors as Dave Soderquist, Andy Pieper and the Rivet Master himself Mark Fuller.  

The range of Venus 1888 has been built with three assumptions in mind. 

 1) Venus could be exploited by the Colonial powers. 

 2) The atmosphere of Venus created a Dr Jeckel-Mr Hyde effect on men, making them unsuitable.

 3) There were commodities on Venus so valuable they were willing to send woman to secure it.

 The goal of this first campaign is to offer a complete Female British force to include infantry, cavalry, artillery, and command elements. Possible future campaigns will include the scheming Venusian Amazons and the dastardly Prussians themselves. Ok,enough prattle and on to battle,  let’s see what these ladies have to offer!

Risks and challenges

The risks and challenges of this campaign are minimal as this is Dragon Bait Miniatures fourth crowd funding campaign. I have all the miniatures sculpted with the last packs being molded next week. Stretch goals are also being designed at this time.

Production will be spun to campaign requirements and I believe all orders will be satisfied within four months after the campaign has ended.

Shipping in the USA: I will pay for all shipping on orders $100 Dollars or more.

Non European Union: I will pay half the shipping costs on orders $100 dollars or more.

European Union: Annie at Bad Squiddo Games has joined us as a distribution partner in the EU, which now makes this project EU friendly! The price you pay for shipping (below) is just that. There will be no customs or other hidden charges.
When the Kickstarter is ready to ship, it will all go to her office in Cardiff, UK, for packing up and sending out to you. This means I can finally give you some shipping prices.
It will be flat rate, so if you are in the UK it is $8, and anywhere else EU $10. No matter how much you buy! This will be invoiced after the campaign ends. Please note, there MAY be an extra shipping surcharge for the Heavy Prussian walker.
