Shakò64 is a project made up of myself and my wife. Passionate about history and historical miniatures, we started a 1st production 3 years ago concerning the Italian Indepentence Wars (Risorgimento) in particular the national and foreign chasseurs of the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies.
We decided to use Kickstarter to widen the range in a faster and more complete way, reaching the current goal. In fact, it would allow us to continue our passion for history, forming new projects for the other armies of the Italian Risorgimento. Our strong point is very accurate details in uniforms with minute historical research. To carry out this project, we are collaborating with various professionals.
CIPART: Traditional sculpture
CrossLances: 3D sculpture

Shipping costs for rewards will be charged after the campaign and added in the pledge manager. This allows us to charge only the actual shipping costs incurred which will vary based on how many miniatures you select.
Please note that these are the approximate shipping costs we’re expecting. Shipping in Italy and Worldwide will be sent via Priority Parcel service from Poste Italiane. 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, maintaining a high quality standard throughout the process and delivering if we unlock several thumbnails.
The sculptor we have on board has years of experience and is one of the most talented and efficient we have met. We expect a very rapid turnaround to complete the work and we are ready to start once the financing is complete. The fusion of the miniatures will be managed by the same sculptor.
We already have a number of carved miniatures that reduces the number we need when we finance.
Supporters should bear in mind that "MILLE Garibaldi From Calatafimi to Volturno 28mm miniatures" is a work in progress, and as such the final product may differ slightly from the mock up used in our Kickstarter campaign.
We are committed to keeping our supporters up-to-date and doing our best to keep all production and delivery times.
For this reason, we are confident that we can offer a high quality product and deliver all Kickstarter prizes in a timely manner.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
