The next 5 Stretch Goals, if unlocked, are Free rewards for platoon level backers and above:

  • Stretch Goal $12,750 - German Sniper Team 
  • Stretch Goal $14,000 - U.S. Army .50cal HMG and 3 crew 
  • Stretch Goal $16,000 - German 8cm Mortar and 4 crew
  • Stretch Goal $18,500 - U.S. Army 60mm Mortar and 3 crew
  • Stretch Goal $20,000 - U.S. Army Engineers with mine detectors

CURRENTLY, AT ANY PLATOON BACKER LEVEL OR ABOVE YOU WILL RECEIVE: Your Pledge Level Platoon (or Platoons), one FREE U.S. Bazooka Team, one FREE Panzerschreck Team, one FREE U.S. Flamethrower Team. 

We created these 28mm metal cast miniatures for wargamers. These miniatures represent United States (M41 uniform) Army Infantry and late war German Infantry. Our goal is to get these into production and this would allow gamers to create full platoons (infantry command and squads) for each army. We have added stretch goals for the various support troops needed for both armies.

This is a 21 day campaign

We have added stretch goals covering support weapons such as HMGs, Mortars, Snipers, Engineers, Flamethrowers, Artillery Observers, Artillery.

The miniatures will have integrated bases except for the artillery pieces, MGs and mortars. All miniatures are provided with separate heads for added customization of the range. All miniatures will be supplied unpainted.

Normally, we would release the range a few packs at a time and get them to break even before the next release. By raising the funds in this KS we can release a whole bunch of packs at once. If we make the additional stretch goals, we can move through all the support packs to provide a comprehensive range.

Once the campaign is over and sold at retail, all figures will retail at approximately 10-20% higher than the Kickstarter prices. 

Comparison with other Ranges

The BrigadeGames 28mm Disposable Heroes WW2 range was created to be compatible with other 28mm ranges.

Who and Why
Who and Why

Who are we?

I am the owner of BrigadeGames.com and have been in business for 17 years importing great wargaming products and creating our own ranges of miniatures. We are known worldwide as a producer of very high-quality historical and fantasy miniatures. We have partnered once again with CompanyB to produce a fantastic range of miniatures. Company B has been in business over 10 years and produces a wide range of wargaming vehicle kits. Molding and casting are being done in the USA by our very experienced molding and casting team.

 

Why Kickstarter?

With over 44 ranges to date under our belt in the BrigadeGames.com brand, including our successful Pacific War and China at War ranges that we created with Company B, why go the Kickstarter route?

We have two successful Kickstarters under our belt, each achieving over 200% funding success. With Kickstarter, we have the ability to get the product to market very quickly with the help of the crowdfunding model. Kickstarter will also allow me to show off and reach many more potential gamers than I could do with traditional advertising and marketing. KS will allow us to get these wonderful miniatures into the hands of more gamers faster than we have been able to do in the past with normal marketing.

Shipping

Each year we ship thousands of packages a year across the world so we have plenty of experience in shipping. We will always be as efficient and cost effective as possible.

Postage will be additional for all pledge levels and needs to be added to your pledge. The addition of add-ons to your pledge may add additional shipping and depends upon the final volume and weight of the parcel. Postage may increase based on how many stretch goals are met and if you are at a level that includes the free rewards or have added add-ons to your order.

Adding any printed rule books or other non-miniature items will increase the postage because it changes the box size and how we can ship the items. We will do our best to estimate the proper shipping in the pledge manager backer survey.

If you do not add the appropriate postage or if the incorrect amount is added to your pledge, you will be billed for the amount due after the Kickstarter closes. 

International Shipping

Postage estimate for up to approximately 10 miniatures: $9 USA, $12 Canada, $16 worldwide.

Postage estimate for up to approximately 45 miniatures: $12 USA, $17 Canada, $25 worldwide.

Postage estimate for up to approximately 46-105 miniatures: $13 USA, $25 Canada, $36 worldwide.

International Shipping will be additional for all pledge levels. The addition of add-ons to your pledge may add additional shipping and depends upon the final volume and weight of the parcel. We will do our best to estimate the proper shipping in the pledge manager. Postage may increase based on how many stretch goals are met and if you are at a level that includes the free rewards or have added add-ons to your order.

Adding any printed rule books, vehicles or terrain may increase the domestic and international postage because it changes how we can ship the items. These costs will be in the pledge manager backer survey we will send to all backers once the Kickstarter is over. 

Pledge Manager - Backer Surveys

After the campaign ends with successful funding, it is the responsibility of the backer to provided a completed backer survey by the timeframe required to enable their pledge level and rewards to be shipped on schedule. Backer surveys instructions will be sent by email a few weeks after the end of the campaign.

It is our intention to ship all pledges prior to Historicon 2017 (Historicon is mid July.) A Historicon pickup option will be available.

Backers not completing surveys within 14 days of the end of the campaign may have rewards shipped after Historicon 2017 (Historicon is mid July.)

Backers not completing a backer survey by midnight EST August 1, 2017 will forfeit their pledge and any rewards and these will be donated to the HMGS East Toys for Tots drive at Fall In 2017.

Risks and challenges

Most of the master miniatures have been sculpted and master molded and are awaiting production molding and casting. The risks are minimal for Brigade Games as we have been in business for over 17 years and have over 2000 miniatures that we have had sculpted, molded and cast in the historical and fantasy miniatures market under our own brand. For this project, we are using a contract molder and caster that we already have an established relationship. We do not anticipate any major issues or delays.
