Who Are Troublemaker Games?

We  are an established wargames development company who design & supply  plastic, metal and resin miniatures for wargames retail companies, whose sculptors also have experience doing freelance work for other companies such as Mantic Games (for whom we sculpted, for example, their range of 28mm scale plastic terrain kits, as well as various other plastic & resin kits).

We  have previously run & managed seven other Crowdfunding Campaigns,  raising a total of £64,708 to deliver plastic and metal models for the  6mm scale wargame range, Defeat In Detail (1 2 3 4 5), our initial range of Plastic Wargames Terrain kits (1), and our 28mm scale Nuns with Laserguns! (1).

We  have delivered all the plastic, resin, and metal kits from all six of our own crowdfunding campaigns to our customers, and all models (other than some Campaign Exclusive Limited Edition pieces) are now available for retail  purchase through either Vanguard Miniatures, as the "Defeat In Detail" and the "Troublemaker Games Plastic Terrain Kits" ranges, or the "Nuns with Laserguns!" range via our own webstore.

Vanguard's own Crowdfunder (which we oversaw as Campaign Manager) has itself also been fully delivered.

Our  wargaming kits in this funding campaign are intended to be compatible with a wide range of Tabletop Wargames and Tabletop Roleplay games.

What We Need & What You Get

We have several designs of Smallscale Plastic Terrain & 6mm Scale Model kits already sculpted, but without a crowdfunding campaign it would be too expensive for us to afford to put them into production, so your interest and support at this stage means we can bring these designs to retail... and to your gaming tables!

As we cross stretch goals we'll be unlocking more model kits, and hopefully adding free bonuses to existing pledges too (we've managed to include free bonus models on every one of our Crowdfunders to date, and we'd love to continue that tradition!).

So, this campaign contains rewards for pledging, consisting of:

  • Smallscale Plastic Terrain Kits
  • 6mm Scale Armies Model Kits
  • STL 3d Files Download Package

The Plastic Scenery Sprues

We have already developed a series of Smallscale Plastic Scenery Kits following the success of our previous campaign, and we now wish to develop some more sprues in order to expand the range of possibilities for our scenery range.

The new pieces will use the same modular attachment points system as our existing scenery kits, meaning that they can either be used for stand-alone sets, or in combination.

The standard tile size for the existing plastic scenery tiles is 5cm x 5cm.

Our existing modular plastic scenery tiles range.

So, for this campaign, we'd like to add five new sprue types to our plastic scenery range:



The City Walls Sprue is intended to allow builders to construct solid armoured citadels, as well as adding half height tiles (5cm x 2.5cm) to the range so as to give extra options for constructing thinner walkways, smaller armoured structures, or small habitation areas attached to the larger walls structure, etc.

The reverse side of the Walls tiles will have "roof/bulkhead" style details, to give the option of using them to form larger elevated platforms or walls; One of the tiles has a circular socket on it, which can either be treated as simple detailing, or used as a socket for attaching add-on pieces such as our Gun Turrets, or Vanguard Miniatures' range of weapons turrets.

In addition, we've also found space on this sprue to add a full height (5cm) flying buttress component, and also a half length (2.5cm) parapet piece, sculpted in the same style as the existing full length (5cm) parapet components found on our Gothic Details Sprue.



The Sloped Walls Sprue is intended to give builders the option to construct fortified areas using cool looking angled wall pieces, or to construct sloped roofs.

The triangular wall support pieces can also be used as buttresses or for supporting platforms, etc, if desired.

As ever with our modular scenery range, the options are quite diverse!


The Industrial Sprue is intended for the construction of industrial districts, factories, and other such manufacturing sectors.


The Gothic City Sprue B is intended to complement our existing Gothic City Sprue, giving more options for the type of gothic edifices that can be constructed by adding half height tiles, which can be used for constructing shorter buildings, or added to taller structures as bridging walkways, projecting balconies, etc.



The City Ruins Sprue adds the option for constructing ruined districts, either as stand-alone destroyed structures, or in combination with our other plastic tiles for the creation of partially destroyed buildings.

This sprue also includes a gothic door component - which can be used to add a door to either ruined buildings, or to our other scenery tiles; It's been sized to neatly fit over a gothic arch window, if desired.


How Do Pledges Work?

Each Scenery or Model kit in this Kickstarter campaign has a "Credits Cost" associated with it.

Total up how many of each kit you'd like to pledge for, work out how many Credits that would cost in total, and then pledge for a suitable Credits Pledge Level.

After the end of the Kickstarter campaign, you will receive a survey that will ask you to confirm which combination of model kit rewards you would like to receive, according to how many Credits you have pledged for.

For example, if you would like to pledge for:

  • 2x Fortress Walls Alpha Set (4 Credits)
  • 1x Fortress Walls Beta Set (2 Credits)
  • 1x Novan Nuclear Wastes Infantry Set (2 Credits)

Total: 8 credits.

Then you should pledge for the "Large Pledge" level, which grants you 8 Credits to redeem in order to receive the sets noted above.

You will note that as the pledge level increases, you will receive a progressively larger discount, so that each Credit costs less to purchase, and also less to post (due to combined postage cost). 

Some of the Stretch Goals that we hope to unlock during this campaign will also have Credits Costs associated with them.

Risks and challenges

We anticipate there being no special risks to the products in this crowdfunding campaign.

The prototype CAD designs for the various kits have already been sculpted, and we have previously worked with the production companies we intend to use to mould and produce our various kits.

We have estimated a September delivery date for the products in this crowdfunding campaign, and anticipate no problems in meeting this deadline. Should backer response be particularly strong, this may result in a short delay before fulfillment.

We have run 6 of our own crowdfunders in the past, and managed another, and all seven crowdfunders have delivered on their pledges.
