About

1745 Jacobite Rebellion - British Government Troops

£9,398

102

Flags of War has been part of the wargaming hobby for 9 years now. In this time we have grown to be one of the most extensive ranges of flags available. Specialising in 28mm flags, we branched out in 2018 by starting our own range of miniatures. Our first range was 28mm miniatures for the 1745 Jacobite Army. This is a period that I'm personally passionate about and one I felt needed a new to the figures available.  

 |WEBSITE|FACEBOOK|INSTAGRAM|

Kickstarter has been chosen as a way to deliver the new additions to our previously successful 1745 Jacobite Rebellion Range. Successful funding via Kickstarter will be the quickest way to deliver more miniatures than if we went straight to a general release pack by pack. The initial funding to deliver new miniatures can be very expensive and it is these setup costs that the Kickstarter will fund.

Our first Kickstarter under for the Jacobite's we very successful and despite a short delay it was delivered in a timely manner to all of our backers. Due to this we expect that this Kickstarter will be even better given the experience we have gained. 


Our aim is deliver the Government troops for you guys to fight against the Jacobite's. During the 1745 Rising the Government troops varied in experience and by Culloden they seemed to have got past many of the mistakes they had previously made in the field. 

We are looking to add the Government Infantry, Government Highlanders and Dragoons to the growing range. The Infantry will be dressed in a campaign style, this is due to the time line of the Rising ( August 1745 – April 1746) and the type of weather we get in Scotland...it's bloody cold from September to September up here. In the field my vision of a soldier would be one trying his best to keep warm and not in his parade ground best. This will mean the tails of the of the infantry jackets are unbuttoned and the breast buttoned up. The Highlanders will be in the plain red coats they wore pre Seven Years war and great Kilt. 

Funding Target

Our target has been set to help us deliver all of the initial miniatures, moulds and cast to you guys. Any funds raised beyond this target will be used to help the range grow by unlocking some stretch goals. Some of the stretch goals will be free to you guys depending on your pledge level or can be added to your pledge as an add on. 

What do I get?

We have set a number of pledge levels that we hope will meet your gaming needs.  Each pledge level will give you a number of packs, which you can then select once the campaign has completed. This is the easiest way to do it as it will allow backers to select the unlocked units within their pledge.

Each pack that is part of the campaign is at a discounted rate than the retail price. Each pledge level details the retail price after the Kickstarter. These discounted rates will only be offered to the Kickstarter backers.

Successful funding of more than our initial target will see the backers rewarded with a number of free miniatures that will be delivered along with the pledge. These figures will be available for purchase after the Kickstarter.

When will I get my pledges?

Our aim is to have the figures completed and delivered in Feb 2020. 

What is the Future Plans for the range?

Once these have been funded we will be able to focus on the more specialist troops for the period. The aim after this will be to see Artillery for both sides, Jacobite Cavalry, French/Irish Troops along with character pieces to build on the current figures and give extra skirmish poses. 

We plan to have a number packs completed in the initial phase of the Kickstarter and these are detailed below. Not all the figures have been completed for the packs and the aim of the Kickstarter is to raise the funds that will see us being able to carry this out.  

Like the first Kickstarter you can see that the quality of the miniatures is of the same fantastic standard. If the funding is successful our sculptor will use our concept work to complete the packs and any of the stretch goals that are unlocked. Many of you will know Nick from the work he has done for Foundry, Bicorne, The Assault Group and Studio Miniatures.

Shipping will be charged at the end of the Kickstarter campaign via the pledge manager and the payment taken via PayPal. PayPal will allow you to make a payment with a Credit or Debit card without having to sign up for the service. Please do not add shipping to your Kickstarter pledge as this dilutes the funds that are required to help start the range.

Shipping in the UK and Worldwide will be sent via Standard Parcel service from Royal Mail. I have been using their service for a number of years for my Flags of War business and I’m confident all parcels will be delivered when expected. If you have any concerns about delivery to your Country please contact us.

Risks and challenges

The main challenges involved in fulfilling any project like this are production delays, and ensuring a high standard of quality is maintained throughout the process. I believe that Flags of War is well placed to deal with these challenges and that your pledge to support us is low-risk.
● The sculptor we have on board comes with years of experience and is one of the most talented and efficient that we have come across in the hobby. We expect a very quick turnaround at getting the job done and are prepared to start as soon as the project funds.
● We already have a number of the miniatures sculpted which cuts down on the number that we need for when we fund.
● The casting of the miniatures will be handled by Griffin Moulds. Griffin has helped companies within the hobby for a number of years and has a reputation for the highest quality and professionalism.
Because of this, we are confident we can deliver a high-quality product and deliver all of our Kickstarter rewards in a timely fashion.
