I believe Tim and Igor have their own arrangement separate from that Kickstarter. ;)

Excellent, he is a cracking sculptor :D

Tiny Terrain Models are the owner, and yes, have the intent to sell them (why else pay for the moulds). They already have an existing moderns line, though by another sculptor(s).

Apparently the first orders are being shipped. Contacted Tiny Terrain and paid additional for tracked shipping rather than 4-6 week Economy International. Looking forward to these.

Some in the UK have already received their's a day following the announcement that they were being shipped.

"Some". In back o' beyond Scotland it'll be a while before I see mine I suspect. :)

I'm considering given them all silly hats and making them Cossacks for my Separatist forces. Um, though that one female Chechen's outfit may be a bit out of place for more contemporary settings (cargo pants and a ballistic vest more like).

I have received my figures today and they are wonderful sculpts with a lot of character. Now, to paint them and await new models...

Mine was found in a bin. :P

I'm doing my best to lay what's there into platoons. Looking at them it works out as:

Chechens - 4 squads of six with: 3 RPGs, 1 Sniper, 2 AKs. Plus 2 leftover AKs (both could work as leaders)
Russians - 3 squads of 7 with: 1 PKM, 1 Sniper, 1 RPG, 4 AKs

I'll wait till Kings Hobbies and Games release their Ukrainians, as those are sculpted by Igor too (and have a similar look, just with more modern vests). With those extra 20 models I should be able to bulk out the Chechen forces a bit to represent other forces, as they're fairly short on AKs. Meanwhile the Russians could do with more specialist weapons (RPKs in particular) and some form of command element so that they properly represent a Russian platoon (which is usually 3 squads plus the command).

Oh, and looking at the now, their guns don't look as large as I had thought. They should work alongside say Empress or Spectre's without too much trouble. :)

Every day when I come home from work I am totally excited to see if the postman has left a box for me. And every day I am disapointed.

Hey, your post in Denmark comes only monthly, because they do not have enough Elk-Sleds  ;) lol
Here in Germany we also wait, slow mail...

They are lovely models, I liked the sculpting style , Igor did some a few years ago which were more chunky but had come up trumps with these. I have a shed load of the red star who has attempted to catch the cold weather gear but am chopping off the heads as they are just not quite right. Itching to buy some more myself and Tim`s range too :)

worth having a look through these as there may also be a few worth picking up for your more modern theatre Igor sculpts too http://warhansa.com/index.php/katalog/modern_adventurers_mercs.html

Weird, my post is gone. :(

The Warhansa stuff is a bit too post-apocalyptic/ pulpy for use in a more realistic setting TBH. Its that the poses are so dramatic, and gear non-standard (which yeah, you can buy anything on Ebay or find falling off the back of a truck) that they don't really fit in with much of the other ranges. That, and the guns, whilst being sort of the same size as this stuff, don't have the same detail. They're more sci-fi looking (like Judge Dredd when they have a gun that looks like an AK, but not quite). I'd reiterate maybe waiting for SASM's Ukrainian range, as its the same sculptor, though of course not to say those aren't an option. ;)

I've made it home way too late tonight to take some pictures, but I'll see what I can do tomorrow. Probably: Empress/ Spectre/ SASM/ Eureka/ Wargames Factory for a comparison if you need them. Though they're similar to WGF/ Empress in their proportions (if the guns are less detailed. Most of the other manufacturers have moved to 3D printer their weapons for thinner proportions and better detail). However, I'd hazard that the PKMs aren't that amazing, especially when compared to Spectre's - who's barrels are needle thin.
