We've discussed Kickstarters on the Forum previously, and how we're not sure how viable they are in 10mm, so we've decided to try a bit of an experiment. After an email chat with one of the members, and the position of these figures in the Top 10 Requests, we're going to use a Mongol range as the basis for this experiment.
So, how it works:
- Below is a list of the prospective range, listed by code, with a brief description of the contents, and the price per pack.
- If you would be seriously interested in a range of Mongols, please check through the list, and work out what you would potentially purchase.
- Make a post here, stating what you would buy, such as 2 x MON1, 2 x MON3, etc.
- If there is something missing from the prospective list, let us know and we can see about adding it to the range.
We are looking to get 'pledges' of purchases over £750 total
before we start production on these. There would be no money taken from anybody until the range was produced and up on the website
The range would be sculpted by Phil (Techno), using new horse dollies for the smaller Mongol mounts. We would estimate somewhere around a 3 month wait from the point we reached our target, to the figures going on general sale and people being able to order them. Once they were on sale, everyone who has pledged would be able to go over to the website and make their orders as normal.
There is no obligation to purchase once the range is made, but please only state your interest if you are serious about buying into it. We can't really offer much in the way of discounts for these 'pledges' but we'll see if we can come up with some extra bonus items for those who have pledged. Maybe some extra General / Personality type figures which would be included as freebies. All of the sculpts would be posted here on the Forum for feedback from everyone.
So, as mentioned above, this is a complete experiment, and we have no idea how it will turn out. Hopefully loads of people will get involved, and a new 10mm Mongol range will become a reality!

So, that's it I think! Let me know if there are any questions on anything, and please spread the word among anyone you think would be interested in these. The more interest we can stir up, the more likely we'll be seeing these before the end of 2013.UPDATE - GOAL REACHED, TARGET HIT, COMMENCING MONGOLS!!!
