Alright then lads, it's live, let's see if there's interest.
http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/6mm-scale-armies

If anyone has any Perk types they'd like to request, let us know.
If we pick up a few pledges from here, we'll start spreading it around the net, otherwise, it'll fizzle and die. :-)

If we get LOTS of support we'll be able to make it two separate sprues instead of one combined one, have separate bases, etc.

Perks and Stretch Goals could be additional turret/sponson versions, Infantry poses, etc

That sounds good.

btw...

in the Perk "four boxes Armies" you get only two Deafet in Details-Boxes.

I think its wrong...

you have written "£2000 initial goal" but in another Place is written "des £2,250 Ziels erreicht "

Add more pictures! Close-ups of the infantry and the vehicles (put together and from different angles) would help a lot.

14 is an odd number per sprue and it seems incomplete when there's 15 holes per base. Couldn't you squeeze one more of each on there? (a squad leader for each might be nice)

It looks like all the infantry have the same pose, which will look a bit boring. Could you not have at least 3-4 different poses? (all different poses would be ideal).

There's a typo in the first line you should correct - without should be with.

I won't be supporting myself, sorry, but I wish you the best of luck with it.

Each extra pose costs us £600, which after crowdfunding and PayPal fees and production and postage costs means about £1200 in pre orders. I'd place different types of alien (leaders, slaves) or human over extra poses at this stage.

14 figures is intentional - I have a stretch goal planned for the last base (command base for each faction, in metal). We also don't want to over-promise and then under-deliver if we can't fit that many figures on a sprue- we've confirmed the current total is definitely possible.

Keep catching those typos!

Fair enough then, I hadn't realised different poses would cost more.

Wow, this looks like a great start to a good idea. I think I could use these. If it goes well I'd love to eventually see some guns for the green aliens. These are great, though.

I will contribute eventually, but right now I've already spent every spare cent I have for the month. I'm sure you can imagine on what. ;)

I figured most would be a bit light on cash this month, which is why I went for 45 days.

Ideally, as pledges grow, I'd like to start swapping figures. So three aliens will become little slaves, three will become leaders, two will aquire heavy guns, etc. Also, plastic scenery & metal tanks. :-)

Interesting - Keep on bumping this E&C as it'll be next month for me too.

Oh, on additional turret options, that's definitely inline to happen - the human IFV has been designed so that other weapons (cast in metal) can be plugged on to it, so artillery versions, AA vehicles, flame tanks, etc, all are possible.

My idea was that if we hit the initial target, I'll unlock those metal addons, both as separate purchases, and as combined sets.

For example (prices plucked at random from the air, I've not run the numbers on them yet):

- £6 - 5x Artillery addons for the human IFV
- £15 - 3x Artillery addons for the human IFV & 3x Plastic Sprues
- 1 only - £40 - 5x Artillery addons for the human IFV & 5x Plastic sprues, plus you get naming rights for the Artillery vehicle.
