 About this Project

This Kickstarter project has been relaunched so that I can get the mechanical steam horses and their riders into production. I have now managed to cover all of the start-up costs, therefore reducing the overall target. Basically what I need now is a number of pre orders to make manufacturing all the figures viable. The figures will be exclusively available to Kickstarter backers at reduced prices (pre-sale) before being released through retailers in the following months (mid 2016 at the latest). 

The idea of the original project CLICK HERE was to produce steam horses in various poses for several steampunk inspired games along with a Wild West gang of figures to ride them. I have split the US Cavalry and Canadian Mounties off into their own project that will follow in 2016.

The Figures

The figures will be cast in white metal from 3D printed masters.

Pledge Levels that include riders please note that this can include the dis-mounted rider as part of your rider allocation.

Risks and challenges

Having run a campaign before in model railways I know the biggest risk are delays in manufacture. I have also backed over fifty projects and seen how many of them experience delays in signing off the product or packaging through to being let down by the manufacturer prioritising a bigger contract.

To alleviate these issues I am working with Clockwork Goblin , who already have a proven track record of designing, sculpting, manufacturing , packaging and distributing wargaming figures funded through Kickstarter. As I have also run my own internet based retail business I know how to deal with customer queries and orders efficiently.

The other risk is biting off more than I can chew, which is why I have broken the range down into clear bands and funding goals.
