In preparation for the online store we are having some of the sets painted that we didn’t have a chance to do ourselves while the Kickstarter was running. Here is the first of 2 sets of PMCs from John Morris at Mystic Spirals. He is doing a fantastic job and has really bought them to life!

The online store is very close to being finished (we wont be posting anything to anyone until the KS have everything though).

From the update:

Thank you very much everyone! We’ve now unlocked the PDF plans and laser cut wooden details. If you add £10 for this stretch goal you will get enough parts to detail 4 small buildings and 1 large African building.

We’ve also made good progress towards the Nigerian Soldiers stretch goal. In Spectre Operations these guys can be fielded as a professional soldiers and can be used alongside special forces or a private military company. Depending on your scenario they could also be used to represent a wide range of opposing forces.

Spectre Miniatures adds scenery bundle add-on

Spectre Miniatures added a new scenery bundle add-on to their modern militia Kickstarter campaign.

Scenery Bundle Add-on

From the campaign:

We had a very positive response to our earlier idea of giving backers the opportunity of being able to have the plans for some of the buildings we have made on our display board. We’ve also been able to make a sheet of the laser cut windows and doors available to go with them, so we’ve added it as a new stretch goal!

When this goal is reached you will be able to add £10, which will give you the PDF plans to build 4 small and 1 large building AND all of the doors and windows you will need to finish them. These are specially designed to represent those in Central Africa and you won’t be able to get them anywhere else!

We are just putting the very last touches to the rules and to the additional figures for future goals too.

New stretch goals and freebies for Spectre Miniatures Kickstarter

Spectre Miniatures has posed up some more stretch goals and freebies in their modern militia Kickstarter campaign.

Weapons Cache

From the update:

We’ve added some new goals, which unlock free figures for certain pledge levels. We are using this opportunity to add some interesting character figures. All these are Kickstarter exclusive figures and will not be available afterwards.

Also, as a thank you we’ve added the ‘weapons cache’ as a freebie to everyone who has pledged at the ‘Contractor’ level. This does not need to be unlocked and is available immediately. This makes a nice little scenery item or objective in games.
