Well folks the postman has delivered my kickstarter from Spectre Miniatures. Spectre are a brand new company that lauched at Salute this year, followed by their Kickstarter, Here's the link,
I saw their preproduction figures and a stunning African terrain board at Salute this year and I was well impressed.
We're looking at 28mm ultra modern figures and their initial release covers Africa so we have generic Militia, Paramilitaries, Special Forces, Contractors and covert Agents, think Blood Diamond or Sky 1's Strike Back.
The Postman delivered a box of Spectre goodness,
The packs come in nice boxes with packaging reminiscent of weapon crates, very nice.
I was one of the 51 backers who opted for "The Intelligence Agent" pledge, which got me 12 packs of figures and all their freebies, I also couldn't resist their resin PMC Technical,
To get a good variety I chose the following packs;
Militia with RPGs
Bullet Proof Militia
Witchdoctor and fighters
Warlord and Big Men
Private Military Contractors Delta
SAS Recce Patrol
SAS Close Observation
Here's some figure shots,
Militia Firing, 4 guys doing a classic "Beirut unload"
To round off these are very very nice figures, excellent sculpts and the research is spot on, They're all imaged on the website, link at the start of the post, I've also got a copy of their playtest rules that complement the figures and on first reading they look good, very highly recommended!!!
