Welcome to our latest project.

Aims

Your pledges will accelerate the development and release of a range of 28mm white metal figures depicting Ancient Greeks.

Most of the miniatures are already sculpted and just need trimming and putting into production molds   That's why I will start with a low goal of £200. 

We have a variety of Head variations planned Athenian, Corinthian [crested and tall crested], bare headed, Boeotian and Cretan.

Also various body Armour [Linen , Contoured breast plate etc] and Shield designs.

 The Plan

The plan is to produce this range of figures in White metal.

The figures are mostly ready with some minor cleaning up and a few alterations, but, mainly we just need to get the production molds made and we can only do that with your funding, we have already invested time and money getting this far and just need to fund the final part.

I have estimated delivery as May 2017 BUT expect to get you rewards out sooner than that, May 2017 gives us some room for unforeseen delays.

the casting will be done locally so no delays are foreseen there.

The Figures.

The final sets will contain 4-5 white metal figures with shields and white metal weapons as needed. After the project costs will be @ £1.00 per figure[due to metal costs] BUT. the rewards are listed in figures and are aimed to give value at about 25-30% savings. PLUS there will be free figures to backers at certain pledges as Goals are achieved.

Rewards are based on figures [and I'm sure minor changes on figure types included can be tailored to suit].

Risks and challenges

I already have the molding 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.
