Spectre Miniatures

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,
Spectre Miniatures
 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 firing
Militia with RPGs
Militia advancing
Bullet Proof Militia
Militia Sapeurs
Militia Guards
Witchdoctor and fighters
African Paramilitary
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"
A guy from the SAS Close Observation box, all 4 in ghillie suits about to deliver the good news awesome figures!
And here's a shot of the very tidy PMC Technical, very high quality resin casting.

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!!!

  2. I've pretty much washed my hands of 28mm these days, but I must admit the
    Spectre KS did tempt me. At some point I'm thinking of doing the Northern
    Mali conflict in 1/72 with a French combat platoon vs. insurgents. Currently I'm working on a 10mm Falklands project, inspired by your posts here.

    2. CWC seems to work pretty well and of course the army lists are very helpful! My son and I are having a game this afternoon in fact. I have a blog detailing this venture here if you are interested: http://doandrollthedie.blogspot.co.uk/
