Been thinking about a stretch goal to get highland lassies.

Assuming need at least.

Bagpiper, officer, banner bearer ?
Musketeer, Sword and buckler woman,

I could accept that as a stretch goal and get a sculptor working on it early in January.

Short plaid kilts, stockings, buckled boots, flouncy blouses, bonnets, two poses of sword and targe, pose of musket at carry?

It will come to at least £1,200.00 GBP just for sculpts and moulds – so would like to get these follow on figures right?

Any more suggestions?

One suggestion is that first adopters get a discount per figure, so the first (X) of each pledge level will be cheaper – by a small amount, I will advertise on here so that you know when it is going live.

For example

Pledge Countess floras brigade 72 figures – £120.00 GBP delivered June limited to (30)
Pledge Countess Floras brigade 72 figures – £130.00 GBP delivered August unlimited.

(note those prices are examples and not worked calculations…)

Of course the speed of the starting and development will depend upon funding.

And success will for the largest part rest on the talent of the sculptor,
- the femininity of the shapes (gaming minis are intended to be seen from a distance, so essential distinguishing features have to be…rather obvious

Photo blocked by adult filter:

- but also the cuteness of the faces -this even if the minis are scrutinized individually, that's how potential buyers see and judge them on a web page.

It would be useful to have readers of this thread post here links to what they judge to be the 'best female faces' in 28 -35 mm.

Btw avoid that minor mistake of the Eureka 'Sandras': TMP link: to have the 'command group' standing at attention while the 'privates' are marching.

just got a picture of a test sculpt for the foot brigadier, and it is looking good. I just wish I had my computer working so I could put it up.

Did you settle on poses for the Musketeers? March Attack – I hope. The only pose suitable for Lace Wars, really, unless you are planning on skirmish level games.

And proper bayonets are preferred over plug bayonets but either is better than none at all!

two poses of carry, at the March
all figures in the initial block are marching, no standing poses.

some additional standing poses as kickstarter figures.

sadly now waiting on my second computer fix in three months.

I personally want all the sequence of firing and loading poses but I accept that will have to wait.

one sculptor is chomping at the bit waiting for images stuck on a computer… this is delaying me starting the kickstarter, it is especially galling after spending money…

further to previous good news, packaging costs have reduced from 72 pence per box to 65 pence per box, and hoping to manage to knock off at least another ten per cent if I order more than 100 small mailer boxes. I can fit between fifty and sixty figures in the box (estimated) and can get the next mailer size which will hold between one hundred and one twenty for just over one pound. these savings may mean more options for conversions to go into master moulds.

I have a number of heads and hats to go into the three d printer, when my computer is working. when these are available I will show them on here.

I am desperately trying to get some images to two sculptors so they can get something underway, and I am waiting for two payments to go through my account to pay another sculptor for work. once I have pictures of all samples I will decide who gets the honours for the rest of the work, but if they are broadly comparable will use all the figures in some way.

I think going live in nine days if the computer is a quick repair.

As said before – computer was not quick repair, and then ( well you do not need all the gory details but …)

I am blogging about my Kickstarter – and it will be going live in March/April – and run till after the Triples Wargame show where I hope to be showing off the Greens of the first part of the ranges.
