GHQ kickstarter for model you want?

Post by nashorn88 »

Since most of us want certain models made buy GHQ doesn’t seem to listen.
I wonder if GHQ did a Kickstarter for a particular model would that work? After all getting money upfront for some thing they were eventually make anyway.
Just a thought since I saw 2D6 running one.
Not sure if it would work for GHQ.

There's been a number of companies run something similar. S&S and Eureka both run their '20 Club' and their '100/300 Clubs' where they open pre-orders for a yet-to-be-released model/range, and only start production once a minimum order number is fulfilled.

I'd definitely be keen though :mrgreen:

Footsore just raised an insane amount for their 28mm Medievil Welsh line.

Really? I have a large 28mm medieval army.
I could use some Welsh. I’ll have to take a look.

Yeah, so, the Kickstarter ended last week. I think they are getting ready to release them to the public if they haven’t already. Like all of their minis, impressive is an understatement. They’ll fit with my Barons War line nicely. I think my favorite part of collecting and gaming wit minis is boarding my horizons in history, the Barons War was some I’d never really heard of in my part of the world. English history is so deep and broad, unless you’re from there, or study it, there’s a lot you can miss, but interest in in minis can open whole new worlds. I’m finding it fascinating reading about William Marshal. For instance, before I’d read about him, I’d no idea about the meaning of an inverted shield. Sorry, I strayed off off topic, lol.

Any company with GHQ's history/legacy could quite easily raise the cash for pretty much any project they want via Kickstarter...

I can think of quite a few items they could add to their catalog that way, possibly entire new product ranges.
