Welcome to our kickstarter for the 15mm Marine Tactical Unit. Taken from within our Shattered Void Universe that we have spent 3 years developing and building on. While we are working on Shattered Void, a fast-paced space dog fighting game, We wanted to explore some other areas of the universe and with what better way but some ground forces? So your first question comes to mind.....
The Marine Tactical Unit are the frontline soldiers of the Earth Exploration Fleet in the Shattered Void universe which we at White Dragon Miniatures are currently creating.
The Marines are the true boots on the ground, working with modern tech and trained in advance warfare for FIBUA (fighting in built up areas) and ship boarding actions. They operate in small teams of 6 men per section, and 18 men in a multiple. They are able to quickly improvise, adapt and overcome whatever the task issued.
Each Multiple of marines are assigned an Armadillo Support Bot, able to carry heavy equipment without effort and also carrying one of 3 support guns (Chain cannon, Grenade Launcher and Missile Launcher). It also features a large armoured plate on one side, able to protect soldiers using it as cover in exposed areas. The armoured plate features a reactive armour shield while the Armadillo provides the squad much needed covering fire with their choice of weapon turret and finally as a resupply and communications hub.
Finally the Proteus Frontline Battle Mech is one of the main spearhead unit available to the MTU forces. Carrying huge calibre weapons in its arms and thick armour that can with stand some severe punishment, they march across the battlefield bringing destruction and ruin to their opposition.
The finished miniatures will be cast in highly detailed polyurethane resin, manufactured by Prodos Games Ltd.
Based on past experience (of us and others), we will be charging shipping after the Kickstarter concludes based on the actual costs incurred to ship. We will collect this via our pledge manager after the campaign ends. This is so we can be fair to all our backers (shipping is rarely one size fits all). As a rough estimate, the pledges will cost about £4 within the UK, £5 within Europe and between £6-8 elsewhere (for a 1kg parcel), but this may increase or decrease depending on the quantity of stretch goals we unlock and your choices. Thank you for your understanding.
We at White Dragon Miniatures wish to bring our exciting new 15mm sci-fi range into production but we need your help to do it! The aim of this Kickstarter is to allow the highly anticipated Earth Exploration Fleet Marine Tactical Unit (EEF MTU) to hot-drop onto your table top battlefields. The EEF MTU range is composed of 18 individual infantry miniatures, 1 Armadillo Support Bot and the mighty Proteus Frontline Battle Mech.

Risks and challenges
While every effort has been made prior to the Kickstarter going ahead to ensure that everything runs smoothly, with having all the models conceptualised, sculpted, printed and production casts done. We just don’t know how popular and big the campaign could be.
While judging a reasonable delivery time frame is difficult, we believe that because all of the models are in production and working with Prodos Games Ltd for the casting of the models we can be confident that our Kickstarter can be fulfilled quickly with minimal delays.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
