10mm German Mortar, Organ Gun & Volley Gun, Kickstarter from Warmonger Miniatures

10mm German Mortar, Organ Gun & Volley Gun, Kickstarter from Warmonger Miniatures

Warmonger Miniatures is running our eighth Kickstarter. Help us add this one to our list of success stories (Great Swords, Arquebusiers, Crossbowmen, Halberdiers, Reiter, Ritter and Falkonet).

10mm German Mörser (Mortar), Orgelgeschütz (Organ Gun) and Salvengeschütz (Volley Gun)

In a nutshell, I'm a Warmaster gamer who's after a Dogs of War army where I don't have to worry about out-of-production models, conversions and size differences between ranges. 10mm Landsknechte fit the bill here, plus they could find a home in an Empire or historical army as well.

The Miniatures

There are five unit options this time around:

Mörsers auf Rädern (Wheeled Mortars)

A unit of two wheeled mortars and six crew.

Mörsers auf Rädern (Wheeled Mortars)

Statischer Mörsers (Static Mortars)

A unit of two static mortars and six crew.

Statischer Mörsers (Static Mortars)

Orgelgeschütz (Organ Guns)

A unit of two organ guns and six crew.

Orgelgeschütz (Organ Guns)

Salvengeschütz (Volley Guns)

A unit of two volley guns and six crew.

Salvengeschütz (Volley Guns)

Artilleristen (Artillerymen)

A unit of eighteen crew.

Artilleristen (Artillerymen)

Add-ons

Extra units are available at a price determined by your pledge level:

$10.00 per extra unit if you pledged at the "Donation" or "2 Units" levels.
$9.50 per extra unit if you pledged at the "4 Units" level.
$9.00 per extra unit if you pledged at the "8 Units" level.
Bases will not be available this time as I can no longer source them locally.

You can order other landsknecht units as well at their normal price. Simply indicate what you're after on the reward survey you're sent after the Kickstarter has been funded. I'll invoice you for these additional units along with the shipping (see below).

Shipping

Once the units are ready to be shipped I will invoice you for an additional fee to cover postage. Please note that these are estimates. I was liberal when calculating the weight of the units so hopefully they won't be higher. Add-ons will affect the cost of postage.

United States

$4.00 for 1 to 4 units.
$7.50 for 5 to 32 units.
$14.50 for 33 or more units.
Rest of the World

$15 for 1 to 4 units.
$24 for 5 to 22 units.
$37 for 23 to 54 units.
$60 for 55 or more units.

Risks and challenges

The units are sculpted and a master mold has been cut. If this Kickstarter fails to be funded I will just have to produce them at a later date (after I've recouped some of the costs from other sales).

In terms of a time-frame, I figure production molding and casting in January and shipping in February. If that changes you'll be seeing an update from me here.

Alabama in the Civil War

The deeds of Alabamians – both Union and Confederate – are found on most Civil War battlefields. In this new video, our own Tom Moore explains the figures, events, and contributions associated with the state during the Civil War, including key Naval operations.

Foreign Fighters In4

The American Revolution was an international event of global implications. Many Europeans were swept up in the values of liberty and equality written in the declaration. Learn more about the foreign leaders who helped America win the war for independence.

Excerpts from Hallowed Ground

Our award-winning membership magazine, Hallowed Ground, features stunning photography, news, and in-depth articles by some of America's leading historians. The most recent issue contained articles on future presidents under fire. Read about U.S. Grant at Cold Harbor, "Old Tippecanoe" William Henry Harrison, or peruse a sample of the articles online.

Saved: 49 Acres at Yorktown

Thanks to our steadfast supporters, a 49-acre parcel of land on the Yorktown battlefield has been saved from residential development. The site of sieges in both the Revolutionary and Civil Wars, this twice-hallowed ground has the power not only to educate about the sacrifices that secured our freedoms, but also to inspire us all to be better citizens and better people.

Time for a Trip to Richmond?

The Richmond Battle App® is the perfect Civil War touring partner for your visits to Richmond, Virginia, and its area Civil War battlefields and historic sites. Our GPS-enabled application allows you to discover the great historical sites associated with the 1862 and 1864 campaigns for Richmond and inside the city itself.

Beer in the Civil War

Along with historical names, breweries throughout the nation have chosen Civil War inspired locations or recipes. It is tempting to think that this easy relationship between beer and these people and places dates back to the war itself. Yet, the story of beer, brewers, and breweries in the American Civil War is a bit more complex than it appears.

1809 Hesse-Darmstadt Sculpts from Pendraken Miniatures

The first batch of sculpts for our 1809 Not-Kickstarter have arrived, with the Hesse-Darmstadt troops reporting for duty!

The Hesse range was the smallest of the new nations so a nice easy start for the sculptor.  This lot are going straight into a mould this coming week so that we can get a head start on the production moulds and keep to our estimated delivery dates of February next year.  The Saxons are coming next and should be with us by the end of this coming week so we'll get some pics of those up straightaway.

Battlefield Trust ECW Battle Packs Released from Pendraken Miniatures

Battlefield Trust ECW Battle Packs Released from Pendraken Miniatures

After they were launched at the Battleground show a fortnight ago, we've now added these ECW battle packs to the website as well.  Covering the 3 ECW battles that took place here in the north-east of England, each pack contains a representation of the forces present at each engagement, at a ratio of roughly 1:10.

In August 1642, King Charles I declared war against his Parliament.  The North, led by William Cavendish, Earl of Newcastle, generally supported the King.  Cavendish’s 6-8,000 strong Royalist northern army marched south from Newcastle to relieve the Parliamentarian threat to Royalist York.  En route it defeated a small Parliamentarian force at Piercebridge and then went on to challenge Parliamentarian forces led by the Fairfaxes in the west (Leeds/Bradford area) and the Hothams (Hull) and Cholmleys (Scarborough) in the East.  The struggle for control of the bridge crossings of the River Tees, in order to move Royalist supplies of munitions from the Continent down to York and beyond, led to the engagements at Guisborough and Yarm.

These packs are all available on our website now, Packs cover

The Battle of Piercebridge (1 December 1642)
The Battle of Guisborough (16 January 1643)
The Battle of Yarm (1 February 1643)
