Mauser Earth takes place in a Diesel-punk uchronic universe.
The location, France in the year 1938 where WWI is still ongoing, but where the rules of war have changed!
There are no longer men who walks battlefields, but robots and hybrids. But the most brutal battle of this war take place in the bloody streets of Paris.
The Railroad World Company has taken control of every corner of the country, and Paris has become the very nerve center of the company. Strong leaders are fighting for Paris as it is a highly important strategic point in the war. The conflict escalates to a point of no return. A horrific toxic gas that now unfortunately covers the whole of France.
To be able to survive, cities have developed sophisticated "domes" to make cover from the gas, and Paris is no exception! As a result of these “domesâ€, the city of Paris has been separated into different independent districts.

Mauser Earth is a 1:35 (50mm) miniatures game in a dieselpunk universe.
All the miniatures will have their own character cards. They have been sculpted by some of the best sculptor! (JAG, Allan Carasco, Patrick Masson, Stephane N'Guyen, Stephane Camosseto, Arnaud Bellier...).

This campaign will allow us to produce all the content of the starters (box, mini rulebook, characters cards and resin cast). It will also allow us to produce few new miniatures to have a complete starter for the Pacific Empire!

Each starter contain 3 or 4 miniatures and their plastic bases, their characters cards and a mini rulebook.

Wonderlands Project, with their disaster Shark Day Miniature over at indiegogo, is a red flag for me. If someone feels like backing this project, go and read up how they have handled that IGG project and factor that into any decision.

was the issue there retail sales of the second batch before the KS backers had their signed/numbered stuff ? (I could understand and forgive that since it was a flexible campaign that didn't hit the funding target so extra cash may have been needed)

 

or flat non delivery for some backers (not acceptable in any way) ?

 

I can't tell from the open posts on the indiegogo

 

(I've never has issues with direct orders from them personally)

Even with a flexible funding, they still raised over €2,200 or roughly 70% of the goal (which, honestly, should be enough to pay for the sculptor). Then they made a lot of BS about not getting a bank loan (seriously, a bank loan €1000? anyone would get a loan on such small amount without any security/deposit), and that all of a sudden there was quite the increase of shipping cost but if they reformed their company into something else, they would be getting cheaper shipping, etc. It appeared like their entire campaign was badly organized and badly planned. So there were delays upon delays. Then they shipped out the casts to retails before the backers, and on top of that, they significantly dropped the cost of the miniature from €52 / piece to €40 / piece, which to me indicates that they went into the IGG campaign with an inflated price that would add a lot of profit / piece. There was also quite a long radio silence from them on their IGG page. And furthermore then there were more delays and people claiming not receiving their pledges, or receiving them very late (12+ months).

 

I am not saying that they will mishandle this current KS, but how they handled the shark day project with little disregard for their backers, I cant help but to personally feel a bit hesitant of joining. Hopefully, someone here can share some more positive experiences about their previous projects to balance everything out. :)

I'm having a rethink on this. I visited their website to checkout pics of the Mauser earth minis and realised that this was the same company I had backed in 2013 on Indiegogo for a range of resin miniatures. That project ran smoothly.

As a collector of the Smog 1888 range I could see a number of these figures really complementing that line.

 

My finger is now hovering over the pledge button.
