Kickstarter Watch: Boxer Rebellion

An interesting Kickstarter has just begun.

German marines

EMP Games* is aiming to have a range of figures for the Boxer Rebellion.  The Rebellion itself is very interesting of course, but the appeal to me of this Kickstarter would be to have a variety of figures from half a dozen belligerents in the useful Late Victorian period.

* The production arm of  The Wargames Emporium of Sheffield.

This is EMP Games' first Kickstarter, but they appear to have most of the figures - the real point of the Kickstarter seems to be to get the master moulds and last of the figures done.  Accordingly, the initial goal is a very reachable £400, with extra packs being added every £400 they get over £800.  And unlike many other Kickstarters, you won't have to break the bank in order to back it!

I'll certainly be watching this one and may very well weaken and go for some of the more interesting nations.

I've just realised I hadn't put a link in!  It's https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1543779115/boxer-rebellion-28mm-miniatures
