Hobgoblins and evil dwarf miniatures in 10mm and 28mm scales.

Hi sorry for the lack of update over the last week been super busy working on theses. So here it goes.

We are in the process of making molds. We have started on the 10mm as said it should take us a week or two longer than planned.

As we have chopped the 28mm up and added pegged arms for most of the models, thus it will take us longer to get theses done we apologise for this.We looking at around a month at most two longer than planned originally,

We apologise for the slight delay, we feel the need to keep you properly informed. Unlike many other kickstarters we don't expect you to just wait for nothing. By way of apology we are releasing the free hobgoblin war booty stl and made a chaos dwarf hero which we will be including a metal model of in all physical orders free of charge.

Further we will be releasing a 1-2 foot evil Giant after orders are filled which we will be giving a $15 discount to all backers as we wished to have it out with kickstarter.

We are working around the clock on this and can't wait to get them into your hands. We will be doing a prize drawing for early send outs for 10mm stuff for free soon.

Sorry for the essay but we feel its very important letting you know what's the plan is.

Sincerely DYM

Bot War’s First Ever Stockists from Traders Galaxy

I'd like to give a shout out to Discover Games in Fayetteville USA. Allen and William will be Bot War’s first ever stockists! I hope you guys don’t mind too much being the guinea pigs as I work out the best deals for Bot War retailers across the globe

Discover Games will carry a range of Bot War stuff including the Starter set. Check them out next time you are around Fayetteville way or simply want some sets faster if you live in the USA.

For potential Retail store stockists. I am pretty confident I can get a store starter package to you with a 30-40% margin. I am committed to supporting indy stockists but I am new to trade deals so please be patient.

I am looking for a European stockist that can get around the hefty draconian customs charges.

Cheers

FV103 Spartan from Aotrs Shipyards

Aotrs Shipyards sells prints direct (contact us via Facebook or email) and takes printing commissions. Aotrs Shipyards also has a webstore on Shapeways.com, a 3D print house which had production and shipping facilities located in the USA and the Netherlands.

Slightly belated due to various issues, including losing the back half of Saturday afternoon when this should have gone out to futilely trying to fix my SD card reader which died between one day and the next, here is this month's moderns release.

Just a single one this time - between rebuilding a backlog and commissions - the FV103 Spartan in 144th!

Direct price: £3.75
Shapeways price: $5.63 (£5.55)

Photo as always of the Replicator 2 direct sales version. This is the new silver material, which as you can see, is much better than previous ones for photographs! We'll be sticking to this material as long as we can get it.

Next month's moderns may also be a bit late between commissions and October being a busy time of the year. There are a couple of options on the cards; the FV438 Swingfire is now in the backlog queue, and the Kodiak AEV and the Mann Kat 1 truck are next on my list, so it will likely be one of the three!

10mm WIP, Episode 1 from Boki Wargames Miniatures

10mm WIP, Episode 1 from Boki Wargames Miniatures

A year ago, I started to try to sculpt 10mm figures. I found out that it is possible to produce them for myself at competitive prices – €0.20 EUR per trooper figure.

So for now, French infantry for Waterloo is already available.

Beside troopers there will be command markers also, of course, someday. Here are command dolls. I must sculpt one kneeling skirmisher, one mounted officer, and four casualty dolls in addition.

I continue with this 10mm project slowly, as it is my hobby inside my hobby project, as well as my 6mm project.

12mm Bofors Gun from Butlers Printed Models

One British Bofors AA gun. Available in 6mm (1/285), 12mm (1/144), 15mm (1/100), 20mm (1/76) and 28mm (1/56).

The Bofors 40 mm gun, often referred to simply as the Bofors gun, is an anti-aircraft autocannon designed in the 1930s by the Swedish arms manufacturer AB Bofors. It was one of the most popular medium anti-aircraft systems during World War II, used by most of the western Allies as well some captured systems being used by the Axis powers. A small number of these weapons remain in service to this day, and saw action as late as the Persian Gulf War.

In the post-war era, the original design was not suitable for action against jet-powered aircraft, so Bofors introduced a new model of significantly more power, the 40mm L/70. In spite of sharing almost nothing with the original design other than the calibre and the distinctive conical flash hider, this weapon is also widely known simply as "the Bofors". Although not as popular as the original L/60 model, the L/70 remains in service, especially as a multi-purpose weapon for light armoured vehicles, as on the CV 90.

Available with or without gun shield

M15 with Bofor from Butlers Printed Models

One American M15 "Special" with a Bofors gun. Available in 6mm (1/285), 12mm (1/144), 15mm (1/100), 20mm (1/76) and 28mm (1/56).

The M15 "Special" was the unofficial name for an M15 (and probably other CGMCs) adapted in depots in Australia to carry only a single Bofors 40mm gun. To enhance ground support firepower during the Korean War, depots in Japan were searched for vehicles that could be refurbished for possible combat use. A shortage of 37mm ammunition and relative abundance of 40mm ammunition resulted in conversion of some M15s into "T19s", later officially designated model M34

Available with a winch or roller on the front

12mm M15 CGMC from Butlers Printed Models

One American M15 Combination Gun Motor Carriage (CGMC) half-track. Available in 6mm (1/285), 12mm (1/144), 15mm (1/100), 20mm (1/76) and 28mm (1/56).

The M15 half-track, officially designated M15 Combination Gun Motor Carriage, was a self-propelled anti-aircraft gun on a half-track chassis used by the United States Army during World War II. It was equipped with one M1 automatic 37mm gun and two water-cooled .50 calibre 12.7mm M2 Browning heavy machine guns. Based on the M3 half-track chassis, it was produced by the White Motor Company and Autocar between July 1942 and February 1944, and served alongside the M16 Multiple Gun Motor Carriage.

The M15 evolved from the T28 project, an outgrowth of a 37 millimetre (1.5 in) gun mounted on an M2 half-track. Initially designated as the T28E1 Combination Gun Motor Carriage (CGMC), it was accepted into service in 1943 as the M15. While conceived as an anti-aircraft weapon, its 37 mm gun was often used as an infantry support weapon during the later stages of World War II. The M15A1 was an improved variant with air-cooled machine guns mounted below the 37mm gun. The M15 "Special" was an M15 armed with a single Bofors 40 mm gun.

During World War II, the vehicle served the U.S. Army throughout the Mediterranean, European, and Pacific theaters of operations. In the Korean War, the M15 served alongside the M16 providing infantry support.

Available with a winch or roller on the front

3 different variants are available:

T28E1 - with no gun shield
M15 - gun shield and the same arrangement of guns as the T28E1
M15A1 - different gun shield and a different arrangement of the guns

12mm M16 MGMC from Butlers Printed Models

One American M16 Multiple Gun Motor Carriage (MGMC) half-track. Available in 6mm (1/285), 12mm (1/144), 15mm (1/100), 20mm (1/76) and 28mm (1/56).

The M16 Multiple Gun Motor Carriage, also known as the M16 half-track, was an American self-propelled anti-aircraft weapon built during World War II. It was equipped with four 12.7mm M2 Browning machine guns in an M45 Quad mount. 2700 were produced by White Motor Company from May 1943 to March 1944, with 568 M13 MGMCs and 109 T10 half-tracks being converted into M16s as well.

The chassis was derived from the T1E2 chassis, an earlier version of the M13. Based on an M3 half-track chassis, it replaced the M13 MGMC half-track after early 1944. As aircraft became more advanced, the usefulness of the M16 was reduced. In the Korean War, it was relegated primarily to the ground-support role, being put out of service in the U.S. Army in 1954.

Nicknamed the "Meat Chopper", the M16 was famous for its effectiveness against low-flying aircraft and infantry, making it extremely popular with soldiers. It was used by the United States Army, the British Commonwealth, and South Korea. A similar version of the M16, the M17, was based on the M5 half-track and exported via Lend-Lease to the Soviet Union.
