10mm German Falkonet (Cannons) Kickstarter from Warmonger Miniatures

Help us fund the molding and casting of another 10mm German unit sculpted by the talented Bob Naismith.

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

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 three unit options this time around:

Kartaunen

A unit of two pieces of field artillery and six crew.

A unit of two pieces of field artillery and six crew.

 Falkonet

A unit of two light, horse-drawn, cannon and six crew (two with horse).

A unit of two light, horse-drawn, cannon and six crew (two with horse).

 Falkaune or Sepentinell

A unit of two medium or light cannon and six crew.

A unit of two medium or light cannon and six crew.

The units are designed to fit on 20x40mm bases, and the crew are 10mm to the eye.

Stretch Goals

We'll see if we can get to some stretch goals this time around. At this point I'm thinking of:


  • Organ Gun
  • Mortar (static and wheeled)
  • Volley Gun

I have no order planned for them, I'll let pledgers vote once we're funded for the first stretch goal. In order to be sculpted, molded and cast I'd need an additional $1000 for each.

Add-ons

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

$10.00/11.00 per extra unit if you pledged at the "Donation" or "2 Units" levels.
$9.50/10.25 per extra unit if you pledged at the "4 Units" level.
$9.00/9.88 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 that you will be sent once this Kickstarter is 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 first three units are sculpted and a master mold has been cut. If this Kickstarter fails to be funded I will still produce them just 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 May, and shipping in June. If that changes you'll be seeing an update from me here.

If your pledge includes stretch goals, I'll hold it until I have everything to ship to you in one package.
