We are extremely excited doing this Kickstarter, to see our design become a reality, from idea, to computer, to printing and soon to the factory, then into your life's.
It's been a hard road, and will continue to be difficult, we are determined in what we are creating, simply because we love it. Each one of us have countless hours of fun playing war games and board games, well except when our finger's get stuck and just can't get that paint job right or of course rolling 1's.
So why Chinese soldiers, and why females? well why not. The UK and US are well represented in the gaming market, plus some of us designing this are Chinese and also women. China has a beautiful and exotic military, from their unusual weaponry, and vehicles, to their camouflage schemes, and even their military drills. Also where can you find modern female soldiers? They are often represented in Fantasy and Sci Fi, but only a hand full exist in Modern themes.
We want to be a regular designer of female military miniatures and also create several military, police, female and male units that are little or none represented in the market.
We want our miniatures to be a realistic scale, and also our females to actually look like females, not He-Man, so we designed feminine shaped female warriors. We know that our mini's look superb next to manly heroic scale soldiers, such as; Wonder Woman and Batman, or Sarah Conner and the Terminator.
All weapons included are currently used by the Chinese elite Special Forces Commandos, and their uniforms & equipment are accurate (Type 7 uniform). We have a combat military Vet advising us, and we even spent time with a female Chinese military regiment.
Included free is a Chinese Private Military Contractor.
She wears her private security uniform with her beret, ballistic goggles, ear piece, and wields a high powered Assault Rifle.

Lyguyison Chronicles - Modern Ninja is set during current times using the lastest military equipment, it's designed for FIBUA Fighting In Built Up Area's using ultra modern professional soldiers.
It's designed to be a strategic, fast paced, easy to learn, squad based skirmisher.
The game rules also include advanced tactics such as; breaching doors, walls, floors and windows. Traps, grappling guns, parachuting, mortar strikes, EMP's, CCTV etc can also be included.
Digital rule book, made easy for beginners and tatical enough for sesonsed gamers. The game is a point based game were each player agrees on a point limit e.g. 100 points each. The game is played on a 20 sided dice.
Each miniature soldier has a point score e.g. 10 points, 15 points etc. The soldiers weapons and skills are already calculated out for each soldier, just pick how you'd like to build your team to match the agreed points limit.
Each type of soldier has a bio card, this card explains their points, weapons, how far they can move and what they need to roll on the die to hit and kill the enemy soldier.
Choose which of your models will shot, and at whom, then roll the required amount of 20 sided dice, if you roll the same or above your required stat, then its a hit and the enemy soldier takes a wound. The majority of soldiers have 3 wounds but some hits can kill instantly ignoring wound count.
Weapons such as; Sub Machine Guns fire more, giving your soldier a higher chance to hit, however, their low caliber ammunition makes it difficult to cause critical hits. Instead the Shotgun, only rolls 1 die, but it has a much higher chance at a critical.
Example, a soldier may require a roll of 13 or more to hit, causing 1 wound, a roll of 17 to cause a critical hit of 2 wounds and rolling a 20 always guarantees a insta-kill.
The majority of Sub Machine Gun's roll 3 die, Assault Rifles 2 die, Shotguns 1 die etc, so its up to you how to choose your loads out, perhaps rolling many dice, or going for that higher chance at a critial hit, the right weapon for the right distance etc.
Each soldier requires different rolls to hit and cause critical damage.
Each player gets a certain amount of activation points per turn, the player can choose how they want to use them, moving costs 1 point, shooting costs 1 point. You can give all your activation points to 1 soldier, ignoring the rest of your team. This one soldier could run around shooting at various enemies until the player activation points are used up. However, running past an enemies soldier line of sight or shooting at, will cause the enemy to react, gaining the enemy a roll to fire or trying to avoid the incoming shot.
This happens because the game is meant to be happening real time, simultaneously.
Some activations though may cost more than 1 point and some soldiers have more activation points than others, depending on their ranks or skills etc.
Weapons have their preferred weapons range, if you are using a shotgun, then firing at close range will make it easier to hit, and medium range will make your roll to hit more difficult. Example assault rifles are preferred at medium range and SMG’s at preferred at short range etc.
Cover is simple, light cover and hard cover makes it more difficult to hit, requiring a higher roll of the die. Some weapons though, ignore cover, if so, then it will be stated in their bio card, same goes for thermal scopes etc, enabling the high caliber weapon they are attached to, to shoot throw thin walls, ignoring line of sight.
The rule book also comes with various missions types, requiring certain set up's and different styles of play to achieve your mission.
Character Bio Cards
Each model has a choice of rank, higher NCO ranks (Corporal, Sergeant etc) cost more points although their accuracy, and reaction shot's are better.
Officer ranks gain the squad command abilities to use, medics heal, and signal troops can call in artillery strikes etc.
Many soldier's come with their own individual background, stating their name, rank, abilities, personlisded load out i.e. grenade type etc making building your team more personalised. Some troops are generic e.g. Corporal, Recon troop, QBZ95 Rifle etc.
The Bio cards shown are purely examples and do not represent what they will actually look like. They are only to give you an idea of some stats that each trooper has. Remember each soldier chosen can be changed in various ways from their rank, to extra equipment and perhaps she is also a medic. Their stats such as points value may also be changed in the finished rule book.
Range is what is required in the roll to successfully hit or cause a critical wound. Rolling equal to or more than is a success.
You can choose to use some points for extra special equipment. Portable Drones, Rocket Launchers etc can be added for a points cost.
Risks and challenges
So lets tell you a little about our manufacturing process, as gamers we are used to collecting plastic, metal and resin minis. Each material has its benefits, we contacted companies in Britain who specialize in metal casting and also companies in China that deal with injection plastic and resin.
We decided on Resin, and love the detail that it brings out. Some companies we based upon their customer service skills, which some lacked, so thought how to trust them with time frames etc. We got lots of samples from companies previous works.
We want to work with a company that is passionate and professional about the miniatures they produce. We also contacted individual boxing companies that have worked with casters before and shipping companies for quotes and times.
Time frame, we believe depending on if stretch goals are included, 2 months after the KS to finish the 3D designs, making them as beautiful, cool, realistic and high quality as possible. Majority are already finished for the rewards available. Then it's down to getting them casted and shipped. We want our miniatures on your table ASAP but with high standard, plus we have plans for many more squads and vehicles, so we hope you can join us on our journey of beautifully looking and crafted models that will be a pleasure to paint and use on your gaming table.
Postage is free with our Attack Force pledge and tax are covered by the backer. Other pledges the postage will be calculated after funding, but quotes are around £10.
We will reply to customer emails asap and as artists we care about detail and quality, so if you are not happy with our high quality miniatures, then you can return to us and have a refund.
