About

The Plan

A follow on from the successful 28mm Koreans we produced We present 

28mm Northern Raiders. The Tribal hordes from north and East of the Great wall of China.

Mounted warriors that raided and invaded most of the known world.

Mongols, Manchu or Hun, Dressed in skins and furs these mobile armies swept across the land.

The Initial figures of this campaign represent the mounted warriors.

Most of the figures are ready to go into production molds, they will be divided into sets of 3 riders and 3 horses, there are horse archers and warriors with open hands to allow you to add a variety of weapons, a selection of weapons will be included.

As with the Korean Project We plan to add extra figures as Stretch goals as the campaign progresses.

Why Kickstarter?

we already have a lot of the sculpts done or started but lack the funds to produce the production moulds to release a good selection of figures straight away. That's why we are only asking for £900.00 we will be putting money in too. By raising the funds this way Two things happen, we can get the range out to you quicker and by supporting us you get figures at reasonable prices and FREE figures too. once the figures are available and all the pledges fulfilled, they will be made available to the general public.

Stretch Goals

 We want to get as may figures out as we can so we will have as many stretch goals as we can at reasonable levels and as we reach them we will offer FREE figures to you at various pledge levels.

The Project

Starting with the Mounted Warriors, a good mix of riders and horses to make up those wild hordes.

Hun?   I'm sure you could paint them better than me.

Risks and challenges

We already have the molding and casting lined up, so delays should be minimal.

Sculpting will be done in house and most of the figures are already completed and just need to be put into production molds

The major risk would be unforeseen problems such as illness or weather delaying deliveries or figure production. however there is nothing that I can foresee that will stop the completion of the project.
