The final weeks 4CMBG and Royal Netherlands Combat Teams Kickoff fund raiser


The final countdown has begun……With less than 7 days to go we are 90% complete. This equates to around £500 still needed for funding.  We are so very near having to a 4th Canadian Mechanised Brigade Group and a Royal Netherlands Army (Dutch) to use with your favourite rules J

For those that are unsure of the quality have a look at some great review sites like Team Yankee and red storm rising on facebook and popular blogs such as www.breakthroughassault.com . You can also see all my current range on my www.armiesarmy.com  webstore with plenty of pictures. I strive to improve each and every time I create a new vehicle.

Here is a reminder of the good things you will get J





Canadian C1 MBT (1a3 Leo)

Mechanised Infantry in M113’s

TOW APC’s

Canadian Lynx Recon Vehicles

BlowPipe AAA
M113 Dozer

Forward Observer Teams

Decals for Canadians

Stowage
Canadian Infantry test (head smaller on next version)


M113 Dozer

Leo C1


Canadian Lynx






Dutch V1 MBT (1a5 Leo)

Mechanised Infantry in YPR 765 or DAF YP 408

YP408 TOW

Landrover Recce vehicles

Dutch Lynx Recon vehicles

Redeye AAA

Forward Observer Teams


YT 408
Dutch V1  Turret

YP765
Landrover Open topped

Landrover Recce


Each of which will work very nicely with Cold War 3 or Team Yankee rulesets which will have supplements for these forces later in the year. A good time to get a head start J



My ask is for you to share this post with anyone and everyone whom might be interested!  I hope we succeed as I’ve just instructed the printer to print the YPR 765 so that I can show you the quality before the end J

thanks again

The Dutch are Coming!!!






"Since the start of this Kickoff campaign Ive been wondering who else used the SLR rifle and M1 helmet and to be fair its rather a lot. If you continue to look even deeper the webbing is often similar and more so when you take into account its 15mm. Did they have the same FN MAG gpmg, Carl Gustuv , 81mm mortars, Laws ...mostly. On occassion the ATGM differed as did the Anti Air Missile, however overall very little. Then you can look at the vehicles! M113, Leo's , Landrovers and more interestingly the brilliant little Lynx Recon Vehicle is used by the Canadians and the Dutch!







The Dutch also have the SLR, M1 helmets, British webbing, CG, FN MAG  and add a few more vehicles (YP-408 snd YPR-765) I could also do the Dutch with very little changes to my KickOff, which is exactly the conclusion I have come to!  The only exception is that I have added another 7 days on to the kickoff project time to allow myself time to properly market the change and help achieve the initial goal of £4000. We are currently half way with only a week or so to go. The extra time will give us the chance to reach the goal. I do not see any delay in delivery and I am more then happy for people to change to the Duch Forces if they prefer them. The costs will be indentical, so if you have ordered an infantry platoon for the canadians, youll get the option to chose which you would like.


The Dutch forces will be match the current canadian rewards and I will also add them into the addons on my webshop, so you can select options. I hope all this is ok with all my current supporters. I think its likely a win win.....
Please spread the word and help us hit the funding level ! "








Thanks Keith

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.

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 :)

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

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
