About this project

Who is Dog Tag Miniatures?


Dog Tag Miniatures are a new company wanting to bring a range of 28mm Historical miniatures to the collector and wargamer. To begin with we will start with a range of WW2 motorbike units that are not currently being manufactured. This is our first Kickstarter and with this we aim to start small and grow.

What is the Aim?

We aim to fund the production costs of manufacturing an initial unit of motorbikes for the Russian Army in World War 2 with the option of male and female riders.

So far 8 out of 10 sculpts completed for the male and female Russian units. The male and female sidecar riders remain to be sculpted; and these are currently on the sculptor’s desk and we will release pictures as soon as we get them.

Risks and challenges

As with any project there is always some risks and challenges involved.

The main issue so far being the handle bars. They were to delicate when done in resin; as a result of this issue the handle bars are now going to be a separate piece. These will be cast in metal and will be the only part of the manufacturing process not done in house. We are confident this will have little impact on delivery times.

We anticipate we will deliver this project on time.
