AWI Personalities - Greens Preview

Baron von Knyphausen
Here are some previews of the new greens for the AWI personalities that are among the rewards that are available for our Kickstarter backers. The figures will go into production in December and we are on target to ship all of the rewards to backers by January 2014. Once all backers have received their rewards figures, the personalities will be made available for sale to the general public.

General Francis Marion (the Swamp Fox)

Banastre Tarleton


  1. Oh, man! Von Knyphausen, Francis Marion, AND Tarleton. Darn. I'll have to have these once they become available to the general (pun intended) audience after your backers are seen to,

    Best Regards,


  2. They look terrific. I love the poses on Marion & Tarleton.
