It’s been two or three weeks since my last look at crowdfunding, so some of the projects here are nearing their end-date.

Scenery

streetscape-3

Phillip Page has relaunched his Kickstarter which was unsuccessful last year.

Streetscape allows gamers to have 28mm scale houses at a lower cost. They use MDF building shell, clad with resin front, back and roofs, so you get resin detail, but not at the full resin cost.

The project has reach 80% of its £1,000 funding goal, and is running until the 8th February, with delivery due in March 2017.

Boardgames

Sherman Leader

Sherman Leader is the latest in the ‘Leader’ series of solo card wargames from Dan Verssen Games. Previous games include Hornet Leader, Phantom Leader and U-Boat Leader. The project also allows backers to get ‘Tiger Leader’.

In Sherman Leader, you command an American group of tanks, armored cars, trucks, half tracks, and infantry squads. You get to choose your campaign. Anything from 1942 North Africa to 1945 Berlin, and everything in between

The project has raised over 400% of its $20,000 funding goal, and is due to finish on the 15th January, with delivery due in June 2017.
