Empress Miniatures launched their Kickstarter in order to fund their modern military line entitled Devil Dogs and Dragons.
From the campaign:
With your help we are hoping to make a significant addition to our 28mm (1/56th) Modern Combat range of figures.
As a ‘young’ company our resources are limited and, with the cost of development, we are prevented from adding to our ranges in a big way. The masters for our weapons alone cost more than most companies will spend on an entire figure sculpt. These are not cheap models to produce, but for us the quality of the end result is what counts and the many conversations we’ve had with our customers have shown that you feel the same!
