The Plan  

Our plan is to release a range of 28mm figures suitable for the Imjin war or the Japanese / Korean wars of the 15th / 16th Century.

Starting with the basic figures for the Righteous armies or peoples irregular armies. with other figures like cross bowmen and artillery being covered within the Stretch goals.

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 £650.00 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 but at slightly higher prices.

 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

 The Righteous Armies were raised to combat the Japanese Forces that Invaded Korea in the late 16th Century, mainly active in the South-western Provinces they appeared in many places. They included Peasants, Scholars ,Former Government officials and Buddist Warrior Monks. Our basic sets cover these figures although we label them ''warrior Monks' etc they are suitable for many types, including Chinese and Japanese troop types

Risks and challenges

I already have the moulding and casting lined up, so delays should be minimal.

Sculpting will be done in house.
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.
