The Roaring Lions: Kickstarter läuft
Historische Bayern machen Kickstarter unsicher!
Welcome to Bavaria Miniatures‘ first Kickstarter!
Bavaria Miniatures is a company founded in Germany in 2023 that focuses on historical wargaming and is designed for collectors, painters, and hobbyists in general. Initially, German states in the historic conflict of the Franco-Prussian War are to be covered as a supplement to other existing ranges. To help finalize that, Bavaria Miniatures need your help! As the name might suggest, we want to start doing the Bavarian army of 1870 and this Kickstarter is just the beginning! Starting with the rank & file of the infantry. If this campaign is a success, we are planning to add cavalry and artillery as well as General sets.
This Kickstarter features the mighty Royal Bavarian army that contributed the second largest force after the Prussians to fight the French for the to-be-formed German Empire.
Even after a defeat against the Prussians in 1866, the Kingdom of Bavaria remained partially independent and autonomous. In times of war, however, the King of Prussia was in supreme command of all German armies, which should all be trained and organized after Prussian guidelines. To Prussia’s great astonishment, the Bavarians fought bravely from the start and fought in the bloodiest battles of the entire war and prevailed: Wissembourg, Wörth, Toul, Sedan, Beaumont & Sceaux just to name a few.
Bavarian troops fought from the beginning against the French Empire to the bitter end of the French Third Republic. As a reward for her heroic deeds, the Kingdom of Bavaria continued to exist within the German Empire until 1918.
Part of this Kickstarter is the Bavarian infantry: There were a total of 16 Regiments of the Line (one „Leib“ Regiment, which had a somewhat guard status, plus the regiments numbered 1 – 15 and named after their owner), 10 battalions of light Infantry as well as 16 Landwehr battalions of which many fought in France. All Bavarian infantry went to war in the M48 helmet, except a couple of light infantry battalions. Piece by piece, however, the M68 helmets were delivered. First to the other light infantry battalions, then to NCOs, and then to the rest of the troops. So to give you a free hand whether you want to represent an earlier or later army, you can choose between the two helmet types.
All of the above can be created by using the infantrymen featured in this Kickstarter. You can simply use the Line infantry sets for the Landwehr.
When will the miniatures be shipped?
If the Kickstarter is successful, all miniatures will be shipped asap. Depending on the success, the casting will take its time. I do think that the end of August 2023 is possible, but we remain true to our motto „It’s done when it’s done“. That’s why we state October 2023 in all pledge levels that include physic miniatures.
Digital files will be sent in June – August 2023.
All stretch goals will be delivered with either digital files or metal miniatures.
It’s your turn!
