 :o This is all sorts of awesome! I'd definitely be in for at least 4 to 6 squads. I'll be following this thread closely  :D

Are you going to do/offer the fields as well? What about goals?

I do have a vinyl field mat that I made recently. Most people seem to use Subbuteo fields since these games (e.g. Striker!, Corner Kick) seem to use similar dimensions. They seem hard to get over here in Canada but I imagine maybe it is easier in the UK etc. Same goes for goals, but I am working on building some so I will try and do a post about how to make them.

Cool. I assume you will sell balls as well. Interested in a demo game at some point (as you are local), as I have the option to try before I buy.

Cmon you reds... :)

How do they scale against other figures (there was a marketing crossover in the 'sixties an 'seventies for leading football players to appear in comics etc - similar to the Harlem Globetrotters TM), I was wondering if they had use outside of football games (Aggro being another possibility).

They are 28mm to the eye, but they are more realistic in proportions than some of the other soccer ranges (ie. not quite as chunky).

Sorry for the long delay - the summer has been so busy!

I have all the prints ready to go to the caster (I had to have them redone because of some quality issues). I am planning do do a very simple Kickstarter soon to help with the casting costs.

BTW I set up a Facebook page if you want to keep up to date there as well: https://www.facebook.com/wattsminico/

Thanks!
