Kickstarter Watch - 28mm L'Armee du Levant

There's more than a few Kickstarters around at the moment - this one is another 'obscure theatre of WW2 in 28mm' one, not, you understand that this is a bad thing.

So - what do we have here? To quote the blurb:
The goal is to create a range of 28mm Colonial French figures for the 2nd World War which are suitable for use in a wide variety of settings. The basic goal is to get 10 metal figures with a set of differing detached heads into production, allowing them to be made as regular colonial troops with either an Adrian or sun helmet, as French Foreign Legion in Kepis or as Senegalese Tirrallieurs in ch├ęchia.
Laudable aim, if the concept floats your boat - I know there are quite a few people out there who enjoy WW2 theatres that aren't the obvious. £60 will get you a platoon of rather nice looking sculpts with your choice of separately moulded head. It's currently targeting £4500, and stands at just under a grand with 22 days to go (May 1): Kicktraq reckons it's going to fall a hair short, so I figure some more publicity won't hurt.

  1. They look very nicely done. Sadly I have no need of french infantry

  2. Really tempted... I love all the Africa/Middle East fronts. They look also likely to fit well with the Perry models, which are the backbone of my collection of minis
