Well these are down to under a day ...

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/dogtagminiatures/28mm-ww2-hungarian-army?ref=discovery

I've made my pledge, and added some on for more figures, too.  It is close to the second stretch goal and I hope they make it!

The one above made it to the second stretch goal, yippee!

I now need to look up and see if Too Fat Lardies has a list for Hungarians for Chain of Command.

- - - - - -

And now there is this ...  https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1873378485/28mm-german-fallschirmjager-in-italy-1943-45?ref=discovery

This outfit has quality figures, I own some of their eastern front Germans in winter gear, and they are excellent, well worth having them.

I'm not sure I am into Fallschirmjager for the Italian campaign, but we'll see.  Good be good for some skirmish gaming.

Those Germans are looking pretty nice. If I played any WW2 stuff I'd consider them strongly.

Their winter Germans are great!

I'm sure these will be as well, even though the computer graphics stuff doesn't show the ending quality they're able to produce.

I'm still resisting, partially because I know who in the states can get them if I want them, and partially because I got too much stuff already.

Well no pledge for the Falshirmjagers for me.  It looks like it did well, so they'll be available, if I eventually decide yes.  Its not calling me.

These could be used for historical situational gaming or pulp gaming ...

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/179272384/classic-movie-miniatures-episode-2

I like the whole concept ... however, still deciding what level I'll pledge at.

I like all the figures, so probably at least that. And I'd love to purchase the steamer boat as an add on at the end!
Received these today, and really liking the looks of the Tramp Steamer kit! Can't wait to paint it and put it together. :icon_biggrin: :::cheers:::

The figure selection, one of each pack, will give plenty of selection for gaming with the steamer boat. :icon_cool:

Anyone know of ideas for instructions on painting this fiber board stuff for these kinds of kits :icon_question:

How could you Artoban  :icon_evil:

It is really awful to keep ribbing GP about those Mounted Crossbows - month after month.

I went for the little level, skirmish or whatever, and got a Highland command, Muskets with jackets charging, and broadswords with jackets charging.

Looking forward to them!

Brigade Games kickstarter ... AWI militia and British 1768 Warrant uniforms ...

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/brigadegames/28mm-american-war-of-independence-miniatures-range

I've sworn off doing AWI in 28mm, to focus on AWI in 40mm.  However, these are done by Paul Hicks and have a wonderful character and variety.

It is awfully tempting.

Couldn't resist any longer.

Went for the 10 packs with 2 free ones.

Will pick all militia packs, Brit line, and maybe some Brit lights, because they are talking about adding the latter as new stretch goals.

Uh oh ... Polish Lithuanian commonwealth figures from Terico Miniatures ...

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1418344245/polishlithuanian-commonwealth-28mm-metal-miniature?ref=thanks-recommendations

These guys brought along the Spanish figures, Low Country figures, and Ottoman figures for this era, and these look very good as well!

Plus a person can pick up some of the other figures to use as allies during the kickstarter as well. :icon_cool:

I pledged for the above Polish Lithuanian kickstarter ... 3 packs which will be the 2 Pancerni packs plus the mounted Haiduks pack, and then I get the scout for free.  The 2 Pancerni packs will make three bases of two figures each, and I'll put the scout with the mounted figure resting his gun on his leg to have 2 bases of 2 light cav.

I'm tempted to go with the 5 pack pledge because it gets the leader figure and an extra 6th pack free, but we'll see.

They do look good.

I have looked at Tercio before - not sure why I haven't bought from them.

They used to have their own rules set if I remember correctly - so maybe figures involved cards as well - not sure?

I have a mixed force that being assembled for By Fire and Sword.

Those rules are meant for use with 15mm, but locally we've translated them into 28mm.

I vaguelly recall something about Tercio having rules, although weren't they for 15mm too?

Tercio can be used in 15 and 28mm.

Mookerheide 1574

The dutch line (rebels)

The spanish line (imperial army)


Tercios racing forward desperate to make contact with the enemy line that is hammering with cannon, musket and arquebus on the spanish troops.

Cavalry battle on the inland flank (the other flank is covered by the river maas/meuse)





The spanish Tercios reaching the dutch lines starting their demolition work on the rebel army. In 1574 the rebel army was totally wiped and the spanish had relatively few losses. In our version the dutch slowly retreated from the field fighting, leaving the field to the spanish which were in no state of pursuit.
