Sash and Saber is almost ready to launch a Kickstarter for a comprehensive 28mm range for the French and Indian War. The range will comprise approximately 100 packs each containing 4 castings (4 different variants). You can see some photos on the Sash and Saber Facebook page:

Nice!

Very nice, Chris. Can't wait to see what you have planned for the entire range.

SashandSaber Sponsoring Member of TMP09 Feb 2018 5:00 p.m. PST

I just posted the planned lists to the Facebook page.

I just went to kickstarter but could not find this project.

SashandSaber Sponsoring Member of TMP10 Feb 2018 7:36 a.m. PST

It hasn't launched yet. I'll post the link when I launch.

Looks interesting. Just getting into this period – how will these figures match up with Conquest and Redoubt?

SashandSaber Sponsoring Member of TMP10 Feb 2018 2:41 p.m. PST

They will match up well with Conquest -- I don't have any Redoubt to compare them to. If you are going to Cold Wars, I'll have some samples if you want to see some of the figs "in the flesh."

Conquest (also the same metal figures re-packaged in Warlord's range) mix fine with Redoubt, so these new ones will be great to throw in to the great pose-variety potpourri!

I'll have to check this out.Seems to be a quite a large range.

@SashandSaber.
Thanks for the info. Afraid "Cold Wars" is a bit far for me – means crossing the Atlantic! Good luck with the range and hope to see a UK distributor picking them up.

Sash and saber churn out a lot of minis…more than most. So tempting.

I saw the sculpts at Fall In and can't wait to see this line head into production.

I hope that sometime in the very near future you add French Artillerists with trail axes and satchels for fuses that will save me a fair amount of conversion work if you do!

Field guns weren't much used in the field outside of forts and sieges, yet sizable numbers of Cannoniers-Bombardiers were sent without guns on expeditions to provide combat-engineer duties for destroying/building things. I presume they carried muskets with them for these forays too.

I plan on launching the Kickstarter this weekend. The 30 day campaign will end just after Cold Wars.

I am Pledge Number One!! Huzzah, Chris!! I have asked you about 28mm FIW for years and you never seemed keen on the idea. Glad you changed your mind and I hope it goes WAY over the top.

SashandSaber Sponsoring Member of TMP18 Feb 2018 12:56 p.m. PST

Thanks Jerry. You've not been only one bugging me about it.

I was pledge #7.I had tried earlier but for some reason my card wouldn't process but I'm there now.

Thanks to all the backers. We've met our goal in less than 24 hours! Now on to the first stretch goal which will unlock casualty packs.
