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!

The range:

MON1 - Light cavalry, with bow (3 poses)
MON2 - Light cavalry, with sword and bow (2 poses)
MON3 - Light cavalry, with lance and bow (2 poses)

MON4 - Medium cavalry, with bow (3 poses)
MON5 - Medium cavalry, with sword and bow (2 poses)
MON6 - Medium cavalry, with lance and bow (2 poses)

MON7 - Heavy cavalry, with bow (3 poses)
MON8 - Heavy cavalry, with sword and bow (2 poses)
MON9 - Heavy cavalry, with lance and bow (2 poses)

MON10 - Cavalry command (5-6 mixed poses, including camel drummer)

MON11 - Dismounted cavalry, with bow (3 poses)

MON12 - Camp followers + pack horses (4 poses + horse)

MON13 - Genghis Khan + generals (3 figures) - Free to everyone who pledges to this project

MON14 - Yurts (3) - A pack of 3 different Yurts!  We'll confirm the price on these once the masters have been made and we've got a good idea of the sizes.

MON15 - Keshik bodyguard (2 poses)
MON16 - Dismounted command (3 poses)
MON17 - Civilians (5 poses)  - Free to everyone who pledges to this project

All packs contain 15 cavalry or 30 foot, priced at 4 per pack, unless otherwise stated.


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!!! - Thanks to everyone who has pledged so far!

Keep the pledges coming though, as the more we can get pledged, the more we can offer to those who have backed this project.  Everyone who is on the list so far will be getting Genghis and a couple of generals as a freebie, and if we can hit 1000, we'll do a blanket 10% discount for all the backer orders as well.

UPDATE 2 - 1000 TARGET HIT!!! - Everyone who pledges will now receive 10% discount on their order.  If we can now hit 1250, we will add a pack of Yurts to the range as well.

UPDATE 3 - 1250 TARGET HIT!!! - Everyone who has pledged so far will be receiving a free pack of Genghis Khan and his Generals, along with a 10% discount on their overall order.  In addition, we've added the Yurts to the range as well.

UPDATE 4 - 1500 TARGET HIT!!! - Thanks to everyone who has pledged so far!  As well as the freebies and discount, we'll also add the keshik guards and the camel drummer to the range now.  Only 9 days left for pledges, so make sure you've got yours in!  The next target is 1750, where we will add a dismounted command option as well.

UPDATE 4 - 2000 TARGET HIT!!! - We've done it!  We have hit the 2000 mark, thanks to everyone who has pledged so far!  We've added both the dismounted command and the civilians to the range now.  Everyone who has pledged will receive:

- 10% discount on your order.
- FREE Genghis Khan and his generals.
- FREE pack of civilians.


We'd best get some sculpting and moulding done now then!   Cheesy

 Cool

This  is  really interesting and I think a good way to go.
 
Not wishing to add huge amounts to range but can see a couple of useful additions

Command with Camel Drummer
Dismounted Cavalry with Lance
Dismounted Cavalry with lance and Pavisse

Artillery - mainly with chinese crew

Good idea, I'm sure it'll work well!

I'll pass though on the Mongols, not my period or interest at the moment.

Good luck!

Sadly, not my area of interest - but a useful piece of customer research which might well be applied to other periods.

I like the Kickstarter idea, but not with Mongols. Just can't get worked up about east Asian armies. Kickstarter Macedonians and Successors though.
