Gaddis Gaming 28mm

Recommended Posts



About this project


Gaddis Gaming is proud to announce that we will be the producer of 28mm WWII Miniatures. We have acquired over 800 individual molds that can begin casting to make us the manufacturer of 28mm metal figures for WWII gaming. Gaddis Gaming, based in Detroit MI, also produced the successful TableTopper in 2015. We have decided to build on the success of our TableToppers and Out-Of-Play-Zones (OOPZ) by expanding into 28mm Miniatures with the first range being the six major nations of the WWII, including Italians.


The entire range will start through KICKSTARTER, which will see enough funds raised to start casting from the molds we have already acquired. After this we will continue to develop even more figures for Weird WWII, a favorite genre of ours here at Gaddis Gaming, (we have almost finished the concept drawings for that figure line).


We have our own casting facilities and enjoy established and productive relationships with figure sculptors at Battle Honors right here in the US. We will produce new lines as demand dictates, as well as Infantry figures. We will also produce artillery/mortar figures.


Gaddis Gaming is looking forward to your support. Look below for the pledge level that you feel comfortable with and get the minis you want for your MiniWarRoom.

Sounds like this is a re-boot of an existing or OOP range

 

(which is not a bad thing for a KS, just owning the moulds/production rights doesn't mean the company can afford to produce them all)

 

but does anybody know what range (or ranges) are represented?

Looks like Battlehonours to me, the Italians in the photo on the KS page are the same as I have on my painting table. The US and Soviet figures look familiar as well. Seems odd because you can order Battlehonours figures from Oldglory15s.com and for less money ($17 for 10 figs vs $25 for 10 figs through the KS), I just got a bunch of packs from them about 2 months ago.

they say they have "aquired the molds" and have posted pics of stacks and stacks of molds. 

 

Doesn't mean any of it is true, but one likes to think that if all they were going to do was resell they would not have been writing about making more to fill out the ranges

With a name to look for it seems that Battle Honours range was most recently with UK company that closed down/split up/etc some time in 2014, with old glory supplying their stuff in the US (a tmp post suggest old glory may own the US rights to the range and was certainly able to keep supplying them to the US market.

 

The new owner in the UK Ebor miniatures was intending to sell the range under the kitney miniatures brand but as far as I can tell they've only got a very few Japanese & US minis available of what was a much larger range of WWII stuff from Battle Honours so it might well be this bit of the range has been sold on

Maybe someone should invite the people behind BattleHonours to look at it and come with a statement?

 

I sent Oldglory15s.com an email this morning.

      I did not see this posted anywhere so I thought I'd share. KAMB is an easy to learn, fast paced RPG where you play a Kobold. You die, a lot. They're celebrating their 20th anniversary and are running a kickstarter to re-release the original zine that started it all, but with better rules. I play this every year at Origins in a 100 player game called the Kobold Midnight Massacre and can confirm that it's a great time of silly hijinks and horrible death checks

      I haven’t backed any of Bears Heads kickstarters yet, but I’ve been tempted by everyone.
      This is the one that I give in to. 
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/98300108/narthoks-the-excellent
      But hurry! It’s funded with ONLY 3 DAYS LEFT!

       
      As nice as that sculpt is, it’s the sci-fi and bartender versions I’m most excited about. The stretch goals for those have been reached, but only concept drawings are available to show.

       
      I think these are great unique looking eye beasts.
      @TheAuldGrump maybe something you could use for your campaign?

      Didn't see a post about this yet:
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/deadlyprintstudio/battlefx
       
      BattleFX is a bundle comprising of several 3D designs of dynamic effects and destructible terrain for wargames. ready for you to print.
      Every item of the bundle has been carefully designed and tested to be 3D printed. this kickstarter includes a STL pack of each pledge, ready to be printed using your own 3D printer - or alternatively, using online 3D printing services.
      After working extensively on the movie FX sector, we realized we could apply that experience to our wargamme hobby - and taking things to the next level.
      We have been working very hard and have already finished designing and testing every one of the items on our basic pledge, therefore guaranteeing that YOU will get it. However, we want to continue creating and offering you new, epic effects for your wargames - hence the advance stretchgoals!
        /*Included in Kaboom Pledge and above*\ 
       It has the widest range from trusters to muzzles flashes and smoky Fx!
      S - Muzzles Flashes S - Trusters S - Smoky things!  We are getting more serius here big booms and more complex Fx:
      M - Big weapongs, explosion and Sci-fi Fx M - Smoke Shell, lateral atack, Sci-fi barrier and barrels Fx  The Big Boys. It takes some time to print, but it also turns your war gaming table into a real battlefield.
      L - Smoke grenade, Orbital atack L - Fire, water and ground explosions  The Kickstarter Star Product, the Epic Fx! Destructible, reassemblable scenography and cool lighting.
