The countdown is over........



ArmiesArmy KickOff is now officlly open!!!!







This is ArmiesAtmy first ever "KickOff" crowdfunded event. The goal of this is to raise enough funds to create a 4th Canadian Mechanised Brigade group in 15mm.
The forces will include Lynx apcs, Leo C1 MBT, M113 apcs, M150 TOW apcs and enough infantry types to represent an infanrty company.


The infantry will be armed with C1 SMG's C1A1 rifles, C2A1 LMG's, LAW 72, Carl Gustaf 84mm recoiless rifle, 60mm mortars, 50 cal HMG and will be wearing the M1 helmet. The figures will be depicted in cold weather gear (not artic!) like all my other ranges of cold war figures and ideal for Europe and Nato Northern Flank.
The MBT's will come with stowage for personalisation of their vehicles and tank crew. Infantry can also be personalised with additional LAW AT rockets and backpacks.
The infantry platoons will contain additional figures to represent the dismounted .50 cal teams and contain a variety of poses.




Kickoff has one huge additonal advantage in that it allows you to select multiple rewards, addons or even exsisting ranges! If it is available on my shop you can add it as part of your pledge!
For additional information please take a look at my webstore. Ill be posting regular updates with progression and WIP's.


90 % of all models are already completed and the infantry dollies finished. The kickoff will end 4 weeks from Sunday and I expect to get out all order within 6-12 weeks.
All items are between 10 to 15% off their retail price and will include extras such as stowage, laws and camo netting.



The kickoff event can be supported at my webstore www.armiesarmy.com

If you have any suggestions or ideas please do not heistate to contact.

ColdWar Kickstarter half way update





Hello from ArmiesArmy!





First up a huge thank you to all the people who have supported me so far, I am happy to say it’s been a huge success! As it is I reached my goal within 12 hours and have reached all my stretch goals and I am now nearly reaching the second set I have added! We are just a little off completing the Special Forces 4 man troops and Ferret armoured car!




What has surprised me more is the interest the Soviet VDV forces and so I've added up some additional stretch goals for more VDV options! These include variants for the BTR-D such as the BTR-D SPAAG and 2S9 Nona-S 120mm which many have asked for. I've also added the British Army Spartan as these have been the second largest requests I've had :)

As of today you have all helped me reach my main goal of FV432, Chieftain MBT, British Infantry and VDV Infantry support and the following stretch goals




>>>>>>Reached!!!       British 2 man Sniper Team, VDV sniper team 
>>>>>>Reached!!!       British Sustained Fire GPMG team, VDV ALG team
>>>>>>Reached!!!       British Milan ATGM team and VDV Sagger  team

I am currently half way through the campaign and would dearly like to reach all of my goals I have set. Please find all of this information and more at the my kickstarter page

A call to arms my cold war'ers..... (if thats a word)


Looking for help!

As I've advertised here myself and Ram Company Games are looking at creating some scenario packs amongst other things. Would any of you be interested in helping us out? :) We would like play testers to run through some scenarios with rules suggestions (you can use any of your favourite set), sanity check info and have input into future areas. A sort of military historical SME :)

We pay in PDF for all people involved! Ill also offer %off deals for any forces I create from them :)
Drop me a message for more details and interest :)

Cheers

Here is what he has come up with (given my ramblings and dimensions).






If anyone wants them ill be offering


1x 8" trench section
1x 4" trench section
1x4" HMG /Gun trench section and roof
2x trench end sections
1x trench to bunker connector
1x trench to bunker door-way connector
1x 90degree trench section

plus a small and larger turret ,which fits my modular weapons slots rather well.......

Everything colonial world needs to keep the hordes out :)

VTOL Update



Another apology everyone....

I'm delayed slightly again ! The resin casts had a sticky feel to them and the caster was not happy.He ditched them and is working double shifts over the weekend to get them to me Monday/Tuesday. They will be packed and shipped soon as  they arrive.

Again apologies. Expect some figures in each pack as apologies! I hope that eases the pain:)  The resin caster is a top guy and every know and again a bad batch throws his schedule!


regards

ArmiesArmy 15mm Tank/APC riders are available at the shop :)


Vehicle riders







One thing that I always think when I am looking  at photos of Russian BTR’s, BMP’s and BMD’s with troops sat on the outside of them( in particular insurgent/militia types) …is ‘wow that’s cool’ and I then think how nice that will look on the varying vehicles of my sci fi range. So…that’s exactly what I did.



This figure pack contains 6 figures and three different poses. They are ideal for insurgents/militia. They are all in the seated position and are available at £3.00 for the 6 figures at www.armiesarmy.com





The Tank crew riders will be available in the near future.
