Militia Miniatures - The Bad Guys! Kickstarter live now!

"Right then guys," said Granger, knocking Bennett's feet off the table and dropping a pile of folders in their place. "As we all know, the whole world's gone to sh*t and no one knows what's going on anymore. We're suddenly in demand again and we've got some jobs to choose from." Picking up the folders, he started passing them out to the assembled group. "We've got offers from in South America, Africa, Europe, North America and the Middle East so it's up to you guys to decide".

It's been a while but we're back with another 50 fantastic 28mm sculpts! As with our first Kickstarter, we want to produce miniatures that aren't tied down to a specific conflict, allowing them to be used in all manner of games and systems.

We've got:
- South American cartel soldiers
- African insurgents
- Republican guard
- European rioters
- American survivalists


This time our inspiration has come mainly from Hollywood, so we'll leave you to guess which movies we've been watching!

Our initial funding target is £3000 and there's also some stretch goals ready to go, including Humvees, leaders, robots and more!

Everything kicks off at 6pm on Saturday 27th October. The campaign will run for 14 days so make sure to get your pledges in!

Links and more info to come very soon!

Militia Miniatures - The Bad Guys KS - Target Hit!

Huge thanks to everyone who has backed our project and pushed us over our funding target. We'll start putting the sculpts into master moulds at this end and we'll get some pics of the castings for you asap.

This means that the Humvee is now in sight and ready to unlock at £4000! This model was 3D designed and printed shortly after our original KS campaign so it really deserves to be in production and on your tables after all that time sitting here on its own! Cast in resin with metal parts, it comes armed with either the M60 machine gun or M19 grenade launcher. If we can hit that next goal, this model will be available as an Add-On at £15 per vehicle.

That's it for now, let's keep this going and get that £4k target hit!

We've hit the £4000 stretch goal, meaning that the Humvee is now live and available to add to your Pledge! As an added bonus, we'll include both gun options with every vehicle, so you can fit your Humvee's out with either the M60 or M19. The mounting for them is the same, so you could even swap them over during a game if you wanted.

The Humvee is a £15 Add-On to your pledge. As another bonus, we've decided that there is no shipping surcharge on this item for those of you outside the UK.

So, just add £15 per Humvee to your Pledge and let's crack on for the £5000!

We're halfway through our campaign and we've smashed through another stretch goal, unlocking the Leaders for each of our factions! We've contacted the sculptor and work has started on these so we'll have pictures for you as soon as we receive them.

These will be individual character types:

- A suited Colombian drug lord for our Cartel soldiers.
- An African general for our Insurgents, a bit like an Idi Amin style figure.
- A Republican Guard officer, not quite the obvious candidate but similar.
- A more rotund chap for the Survivalists, who definitely wants to to make America great again...
- And a female hacker type for our Rioters, co-ordinating things on social media.

Each of these is a £2 Add-On to your Pledge or you can add all 5 for £8 which means 45% discount over RRP!

Our next stretch goal is £6000 where two things will happen:

1. Firstly we'll add a 5th pose to the Crossover Miniatures range of Robots which we acquired earlier this year. There are two sets, Advancing and Firing, and each set comes with two head options as well. The sculptor is poised and ready to start work on these straightaway. These will be an Add-On, priced at £6 for 5 robots.

2. We're also getting a gunner figure made, as a conversion on our original Strike mercenary, which will be added as a freebie to every Humvee purchased. This is getting done either way, so if we don't hit the £6000 we can offer it as a paid Add-On.


If we're able to hit £7000 then we'll be adding a completely new set to campaign, so another 5 'Regulars' and 5 'Specials'. We've got a few ideas of our own about what to add but let us know what you'd like to see!

And that's it for now, we've got 7 days left so keep those pledges coming in!

We've hit the £6000 target and so we've now unlocked:

Robots!

We acquired these Robots from Crossover Miniatures earlier this year and they come in packs of 4 normally. We're adding a 5th pose to each pack and they are now available to add to your Pledge at the bargain price of £6 per 5 robots.

There are 3 types: Firing / Advancing / Command, so have a look at the pictures below and if you want any including, simply add £6 per pack to your pledge.

Gunner!

We're getting one of our original Mercs converted to be a new gunner for our excellent Humvee model, so everyone who has purchased a Humvee will get a free gunner per vehicle. Buy 1 Humvee, get 1 gunner, buy 3 Humvees, get 3 gunners... You get the idea!

Next up is the £7000 target which is certainly possible with 4 days remaining. At this point we'll be unlocking a completely new set of sculpts, but we've not yet decided what to do! So, let us know your favourite movie bad guys and we'll see what's the most popular option.

Keep the pledges coming in and we'll have some pics of the Leader sculpts for you very soon.

Hi everyone,

After hitting the £7000 last night and talking to the sculptor today, we can now announce that our bonus set is going to be...

1980's European terrorists!

Leather jackets, bad hair, tight jeans, everything you need to take over Nakatomi Plaza and defeat that pesky chap in the vest. We had a lot of excellent suggestions from folks over the past couple of days but these guys won the vote! And it's quite appropriate at this time of year to be adding something from the best Christmas movie of all time...

We'll be adding a Leader for them as well of course, no worries there.

So, what does this mean for pledging? Well we won't have any pictures of these new sculpts for several weeks as the sculptor has had to reschedule a few things to fit us in. The sculpting will of course be the same excellent standard as the sets we've already previewed but we understand that you many of you will want to see the figures before deciding whether you want them!

So if you like the idea of some 1980's terrorists, there's a couple of options:

- Increase your pledge by £8 per pack (or £7.50 if buying more than 10 packs in total) to cover these new sculpts. Add an additional £2 if you'd like the Leader as well. If you see the eventual sculpts and decide that you don't like them, then we'll refund that additional pledge amount. You can of course take some of the other sets instead, or we could exchange the amount for Minibits store credit.

- Wait until we've previewed the sculpts and then decide whether to add any of the new sculpts to your pledge. This would be done after the Kickstarter has ended and would be invoiced separately.

Leaders

The Leader sculpts are in progress and we'll have some pictures of them before the Kickstarter ends on Saturday.

And that's about it for now, less than 48 hours to go now!
