March 28 countdown to the end...
Thanks for unlocking the 14th core pack!
March 26th Update -
As I said in the comments section, the $19,000 pack will be released as a Stretch Rewards pack even if we do not make it.
Here are some new pics from Paul of the American Militia in MPC coats as well as British Light Infantry dollies.

March 6th Update -
New Stretch Goals added.
I added 3 British Light Infantry packs as the 3 Stretch Goals following the $19,000 Free Stretch Rewards Goal.
These 3 British Light Infantry packs are all Free Stretch Rewards Goals.
Now it is up to everyone to help get more backers and perhaps move up a level or two to get more Stretch Rewards Tokens.
So what is the plan?
For the last year, I have been discussing with my BrigadeGames convention crew adding a 28mm American War of Independence ( Revolutionary War to many Americans) range. I mentioned the idea to Paul Hicks, my main sculptor for BrigadeGames, shortly thereafter. The project planning started in November 2018. As you can see with the first 14 packs (84 miniatures so far), Paul has done an exquisite job sculpting these miniatures.
Our intention is to not only fully fund, but to get through a bunch of stretch goals to add even more miniatures to the start of this range. Paul and I would like to make a bunch more packs for the start of this range during this Kickstarter, so "Join, Or Die."
The British are in the 1768 Warrant clothing.
The packs in the core beginning of the range are as follows:
- American Militia - marching 1
- American Militia - skirmishing 1
- American Militia - skirmishing 2
- American Militia - advancing 1
- British Battalion Company - marching 1
- British Battalion Company - firing 1
- British Battalion Company - charge bayonets 1
- British Grenadiers - marching 1
- British Grenadiers - firing 1
- British Grenadiers - charge bayonets 1
- $11,500 - American Militia Command 1
- $13,500 - British Battalion Company Command 1
- $16,000 - American Militia Command 2 (Free with 1 Rewards Token)
- $19,000 - British Battalion Company Command 2 (Free with 1 Rewards Token)
- additional stretch goals will be added as we get through the funding goal starting with the British Light Infantry.
The first 4 stretch goals are for the command packs and then we get into the potential new additions. The 3rd and 4th stretch goals can be chosen as free rewards for Sergeant backer levels (both Early Bird and non Early Bird) and above, and requires 1 stretch goal rewards token. Read below for information on Pledging.
Stretch Goal Tokens and Unlocked Stretch Goals?
Stretch goal reward token or tokens are earned depending upon your Pledge level. The Stretch goal reward tokens can be used towards unlocked Stretch Goals with a free pack reward. Infantry free packs are 1 token each, and mounted free packs are 2 token each.
Stretch Goals are unlocked when the total amount pledged hits a specific Stretch Goal.
Unlocked Stretch Goal packs can always be added to your pledge for the add-on amount listed for each pack you add.
This includes British Light infantry, American Continental Infantry, Mounted Officers, additional American Militia, Engineers, and more.
Choose as many of the Core Packs to meet your Pledge Level pack count. Add any additional pack above this amount at the "Add for" price each. The General Pledge Level adds additional packs for $9.00 each. All 6 figure packs in the range will retail for $12, and the discounts for each Pledge level increase from Sergeant through General. The best discounts are in the limited Early Bird backer levels.
Stretch Goal $11,500 - American Militia Command I
Stretch Goal $13,500 - British Battalion Company Command I
Stretch Goal $16,000 - American Militia Command 2 - Can be chosen as a Free reward to all Sergeant Levels and above, and requires 1 stretch goal rewards token.
Stretch Goal $19,000 - British Battalion Company Command 2 - Can be chosen as a Free reward to all Sergeant Levels and above, and requires 1 stretch goal rewards token.
Additional Stretch Goals will be added as we make progress through the current stretch goals. More American Militia, Mounted American and British Command, and American Continental Regulars will be some of the next stretch goals.
Reward prices do not include postage fees. Please note that the postage rate depends on your location and the weight of the final parcel, the more packs, the higher the postage. BrigadeGames ships overseas parcels every day so we are well prepared to ship parcels anywhere. Typical charges for the USA will be $7-$15, Canada $11-$18 ($27 up to 4 pounds), UK/Continental Europe/Australia/NZ/Japan/HK $15-$24 ($38 up to 4 pounds.)
Shipments to Italy, Greece and Russia will also required registered mail service. Please inquire if you live in Italy, Greece and Russia.
This campaign is structured to give progressively bigger discounts for larger pack counts. You can join by picking one of the rewards on the right side.
Early Bird Pledge Levels have an additional discount for a limited number of backers as an incentive to pledge early. Stretch goal reward token or tokens are earned depending upon the Pledge level.
Pledge Levels have a discount for backers that increases as the pledge amount increases. Stretch goal reward token or tokens are earned depending upon the Pledge level.
Support the Campaign Alternatively you can pledge on the 'Support the Campaign' pledge level, which will allow you to pick from the list of the miniatures that are made available during the course of the campaign. You will be able to choose as many packs as you like.
For all Pledge Levels You can change your pledge level and increase the value of your pledge during the campaign. You can of course also add extra packs to any pledge level by increasing your pledge value.
The pledge level you select locks in your discount and the value of your pledge will be available for you to spend when the pledge manager is sent a few weeks after the campaign. Remember, you can change your pledge level to increase your discount and/or increase the value of your pledge at any time during the campaign. The Early-Bird levels will fill up first and will close on March 12th. Lock in your discounts early.
If you have questions, please ask.
All backers must complete their survey and any payments due by April 30, 2019 to be in the first shipping wave. Additional waves will follow as needed. Note that we are planning to be able to ship by July and before Historicon. The intention is to release the range at Historicon 2019
Note: Any backer who does not complete their survey and any payments due by July 31st will forfeit their pledge and it will be donated to Toys for Tots to be held at the Fall In 2019 convention.
About the Team
I am the owner of BrigadeGames.com and have been in business for 19 years (since 2000) importing great wargaming products and creating our own ranges of miniatures. We are known world-wide as a producer of very high quality historical and fantasy miniatures. BrigadeGames is a one man band with occasional help from college age and young adult children, but we have talented members of our team. The miniatures are sculpted by Paul Hicks, who has become a master of his craft. I have been working with Paul for longer than both of us want to admit. Paul is my main sculptor and has done the sculpting of a majority of my ranges including, Napoleonic, 1812, King Philips War, Western, Pacific War, Pirates, Musketeers, Gladiators, Atomic Cafe, etc. Molding and casting is being done in the USA.
We have hosted 4 successful Kickstarters, 3 with miniatures and 1 rule book, that were successfully funded.
Risks and challenges
The first 14 packs (84 miniatures) shown have been sculpted, are in the USA, and are ready to be master and production molding and casting. Higher stretch goal miniatures are either being sculpted or in the queue to be sculpted.
The risks are minimal for Brigade Games as we have been in business for over 19 years and have over 2700 miniatures that we have had sculpted, molded and cast in the historical and fantasy miniatures market under our own brand. We are using a contract molder and caster that we already have an established relationship and currently molds and casts 50% of our ranges. We do not anticipate any major issues or delays.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
