This is a short, simple and straightforward campaign to fund the manufacture of our new assassin miniature - Orphan.

Orphan was available in two different poses, as seen in the video at the beginning of our campaign, but having smashed through the target and several stretch goals we have SIX DIFFERENT VARIANTS AVAILABLE

(Note that poses 3,4 and 5 have interchangeable heads which can also be replaced by the two forthcoming additional heads and that poses 3 and 5 may both be equipped either with dual pistols or dual Mac 10's, not yeat pictured)

We have added stretch goals since the campaign launched and - at time of writing - progress is as follows:

£600 Stretch - 3rd variant with dual wield pistols  *UNLOCKED*

£900 Stretch - 4th variant created with sniper rifle *UNLOCKED*

£1250 Stretch - 5th variant with twin Mac 10s! *UNLOCKED*

£1500 Stretch - 2 extra head options, Gas Mask or Night Vision *UNLOCKED*

£1750 Stretch - 6th variant armed with a P90 submachine gun, in firing position. *UNLOCKED*

£2000 Stretch - Accessories. Ammo. Grenades. Pouches etc. TBC *UNLOCKED*

£2500 The Final Stretch - 7th Variant. Orphan 00, aka "Zero" included with all "One of Everything" at no extra cost.

*UNLOCKED*

Zero - a brand new miniature, will now be sculpted and included with all "One of Everything" pledges

These will be cast - as all our miniatures are - in metal and supplied unpainted.

The Orphans were designed for use with the post-apocalyptic tabletop skirmish wargame, Across the Dead Earth. You can download the rules for free from www.deadearth.co.uk - in fact why not do that right now - they're free, after all! 

In the world of Across the Dead Earth, Orphan is the head of a mercenary gang of ruthless assassins - but of course you can use her in any number of modern, near future and post-apocalyptic settings. We'd like you to play our game and buy our other miniatures of course but if Orphan's all you want, then just pledge for her.

Get your friends to buy her too. Then we can make some more miniatures!

Risks and challenges

This is a pretty low risk endeavour given how many miniatures we've made before and the fact we've already got the art and the sculpt done.

We can't see a risk of this not happening and the only viable risk we can think of if is there is a delay at our casters (Griffin). It seems unlikely though as we've worked with for years and they're just down the road from us.

If this is your first Kickstarter with us then let us re-assure you we don't fail to deliver. We've been early once and late once but we always deliver!
