Who are Wargamers' Homestead?
Wargamers' Homestead is a producer of metal miniatures based in the United States. We are a new company that has evolved out of a college gaming group. We have experience at casting our own little line of miniatures for our club. In late 2015 We decided to expand into world market with the first big range being early WWII. If successful we plan to expand and break into other eras and fantasy lines! We have our own casting facilities and have established and productive relationships with multiple figure sculptor around the world.
Historically the last time kilts were worn in combat is the Battle of Dunkirk (May 26, 1940 – June 4, 1940) by the Queen's Own Cameron Highlanders, So if your a historical gamer these would count as "Early War" infantry. For non-historical players: who doesn't wanna play with some highlanders
What you will receive
All our mini's for this project are sculpted by the talented Leandro Ventic
These are the starting Miniatures but we have a second batch already being produced for stretch goals!
To compare sizes
We Understand with every new company its always a risky business trusting they can put out quality products so we have cast up a few to show off the miniatures and what you will get!
The main structure of the Highlander platoon is covered in the basic pledge levels of this Kickstarter. However to produce additional packs for company assets we have added these as stretch goals which, if unlocked, will enable us to produce them in time to add them to your pledges. As each stretch goal is unlocked, we will add the extra miniatures to pledge levels of Platoon level free of charge! Also, all unlocked Miniatures can be picked for the Fire-team Pledge. An example would be picking the Heavy machine gun team (3 Miniatures) then adding one Riflemen to equal your 4 man team for your Fire-team pledge
If we reach the last stretch goal we will work to add some more!
Risks and challenges
As with all Kickstarters there will always be a small risk, however since we produce our own small line of miniatures already so we will not have to send out for mold making company or casting company since we do that all in our own personal building here.This helps us to keep a much closer watch on our risk assessment.
With that said, the biggest risk would be a delay in shipping as we wait for potential later stretch goals to be sculpted before shipping out orders. We have taken steps to help reduce this risk by commissioning some of the very early stretch goals,
So again, if more stretch goals are made then shipping date WILL be pushed back from our goal of the beginning of next year
