Empress Miniatures Kickstarter

14 Jun

I guess most of you who are interested in modern games in 28mm will already have seen this, but this week Empress Miniatures started their Kickstarter. It is set in the Asia Pacific region. The first forces to come out of it will be USMC (judging by the size of their previous models these should be highly compatible with Eurekas Marines) and Chinese PLA both will feature and initial five 4-mini packs.

While things are only at the beginning, they already show, that they have some real cool ideas. They said that there will be SeALs in scuba gear, or PLA boarding parties amongst future stretchgoals. And they already showed that they are listening to the pledgers by offering a Marine with a M32 grenade launcher as a stretchgoal mini or that future stretchgoals shall include Japanese or (most important for my taste) North Koreans!

Right now things are going great for them, but i suggest if this is your cup of tea… Go and take a look!

    Interesting range – USMC & SEALS vs. PLA & N. Koreans. The JDF will be interesting too. Best, Dean

      I think this KS has huge potential, especially after yesterday’s announcement that they have bought Imprint and will be having vehicles in the KS, too.

      Really, really hope the Koreans will not be too high on the stretchgoals!

    Hello Burkhard

    I’m not really a moderns player but these sure do look like nice figures … as is Empress Miniatures habit.

    I’m probably a little biased – ok, a lot biased – but I do like the New Zealand SAS figure they have produced. You do not need to be a brain surgeon to work out where their inspiration came from – see http://www.stuff.co.nz/world/3252134/Apiatas-Afghan-exploits-revealed. It’s a shame this figure wont be available on an ongoing basis.

    Salute

      They sure produce marvellous minis, do they not!

      Thanks for posting the article… I knew that mini looked familiar, but I could not place him.
