Hessians Are Coming! Highlanders Too?

The Fife & Drum Kickstarter campaign is progressing very nicely, having garnered $16,855 in pledge backing as of today. As a result, two groups of Hessian infantry are now unlocked, including musketeers, grenadiers, jagers and some mounted officers. The infantry will be kitted out in one-piece overalls with gaitor buttons at their ankles, as they wore on campaign after arriving in New York in 1776. We will offer both marching and firing line poses. The jagers will come in a variety of skirmishing poses, as one might expect.

Our next stretch goal is pegged at $20,000 and this will unlock the AWI Highlanders for eventual production.

We (just me actually) will be at Historicon next week with the entire range of figures. I will also be hosting two AWI games on Thursday and Friday evening.

  1. So when do we get the Delaware regiment and the Continental light infantry in helmet (early and late) versions?

    Also, do you plan to do British in helmets, suitable for Burgoyne?
