Kingscarbine Miniatures


Welcome,

I've decided to invest some of my piggy bank money to start a company. There's no timetable and I'm still considering turning to Kickstarter for some investment or request you generous contributions to help pay the the sculptors and production moulds. 

I have Stephen May waiting for the list(s) to start sculpting and send manikins and equipment to Griffin Moulds. My plan is to start slow and see how it goes. I hope to finish the range in a couple of years or more depending on the sales. My aim is to make compatible figures with the Perry's ACW range as some of their stuff will work nicely for the period and  use the artillery and other equipment from the various available ranges.

My plan is to start simply, with basic troops from each army (that includes infantry, cavalry and artillery), giving customers enough to make a playable force from each side. I decided to build the range chronologically. This might be a good way to work as armies change in some way throughout the war.

Anyone interested in contributing either financially or with info can PM me or email. Those who contribute financially will be considered "The Founding Fathers" and will have special status (first to get figures, discounts and special figures).

Regards,

Nuno
