Short Kickstarter from Bad Squiddo games for female Soviet troopers for WWII gaming. Thiis expands their existing range and adds troops clad for winter.
Hello! This is a Kickstarter to increase our existing WW2 Soviets range. Already massively popular since the first wave launch of 2016, we decided it needs reinforcements! The miniatures are sculpted and master cast, so this project is to cover the funds of production moulds and the initial casts.
BORING BUT IMPORTANT TECHNICALS - The miniatures are 28mm scale and cast in extremely high quality white metal. Everything is single piece where possible. They come without bases supplied but with moulded on small puddle bases (easy to chop off if you wish to). And of course - they are compatible with the similar male miniatures from other manufacturers. They are supplied unpainted - so you can either paint them yourself or simply bring out the detail with an ink wash.
Shipping is charged in addition to your pledge, AFTER THE CAMPAIGN, scroll to the bottom for more information. Please don't add the shipping cost during the campaign. EU Customers be aware of additional import fees, more on that later too.
Finished up the companion to the "Stug" mech I posted earlier this year. This is the "Tiger" mech from West Wind Productions, although this build-out differs from what they currently offer on their website. Friend of mine picked it up in their kickstarter and asked me to paint it for him as he doesn't like doing vehicles. I drilled out the "turret" and the legs and epoxied magnets in so the turret can rotate. They're 1/4" so you can actually pick the thing up by the turret! Base coat and camo is Tamiya, details are in an assortment of manufacturers paints. Weathered with an oil pin wash and Secret Weapon pigments. Markings are from a 1/48 sheet of dry transfers from Archer.
28mm scale "Stug" mech I painted for a friend. I know he got it out of a Kickstarter, but otherwise no idea who makes it. He'll be finishing the base to match the rest of his army. Tried some different paints and techniques and pushed the 'weathering' further than I have before. All in all I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.
I know there are a few folks that do Bolt Action and similar 28mm wargaming (@buglips), so I thought I'd bounce this out there.
Railroads are an important means to transport troops, equipment, ammunition and all other kinds of supply to the front. Especially in a country as vast as the Soviet Union with it's endless steppes, only few reliable roads and no major rivers running in the direction of the German advance during Operation Barbarossa in World War II.
With this set of detailed buildings and rolling stock in 1/56 scale for 28mm figures you get the opportunity to recreate the crucial fighting around the Soviet railroad system.
The kits focus on the major pieces of rolling stock available to the Soviet defenders: box cars, gondola cars and flat cars. And the mighty ALCo RSD-1 Diesel Engine which was made available under the US Lend-Lease Act.
Also included is a typical rural train station with optional additional platforms for all who want to depict a Soviet - or captured German - supply depot, where heavy equipment like tanks and guns are being unloaded.
And for all of you looking for an armored train - don't worry! We have you covered.
Talking about railroad tracks:
We did not see the need to reinvent the wheel, so all kits are designed to be used with
4Ground Railroad Tracks (available as add-ons to the Kickstarter) or O Gauge Model Railroad Tracks The kits include optional parts enabling you to choose your favorite system while assembling. Going this route has allowed us to concentrate on designing and producing the rolling stock only, which has the advantage of an earlier fulfillment date for the Kickstarter.
All models are highly detailed on the outside and inside. The interiors are easily accessible, as roofs are removable. In addition, all doors are moveable, which means you can open or close them during gameplay.
From the first Bones kickstarter:
I am diving into some more of the white-undercoated Bones 1 models that are cluttering up my Drawers of Doom, models that for some reason or other have been stuck in limbo never to get to painted-heaven. These Bones are mainly painted with Contrast Paints for speed.
This is 77119 Sinessa, Hellborn Sorceress.
It was part of the "Bedevilled" subset of the Bones 1 Core set.
Sculpted by Bob Ridolfi. 25mm base.
The Skin is Flesh Tearers Red Contrast with a careful drybrush of thinned Citadel Wazdakka Red Layer on. The Gold is Vallejo Necro Gold and old Chestnut Ink.
