Crowdfunding Spotlight: Ghetto Miniatures 1970’s New York Gang Skirmish Kickstarter

26 Sep

If your a fan of the movie “The Warriors” which follows the a gang trying to reach their Coney Island territory on a fateful night amid hostile NY gangs trying to kick their ass for the murder of unifying gang boss Cyrus (etc), then this is the KS for you!

Whilst not being 100% the licensed property, these “not” minis are a perfect match for some of those bat shit crazy gangs from the movie. Not only are minis on offer, but a skirmish game system too. The miniatures are the stars here I think, and would make great additions to your collection if your into moderns/pulp/horror etc in 28mm games. Tis’ a shame that there are no 15mm versions available here as they’d be a great fit in my zombie games, but perfect if your zombie fun is in the bigger scale!

My only reservation is that the limited edition “Caesar” figure, seems to have out of proportion hands and arms, which is only a small criticism providing that “You can dig it?”

Ghetto Miniatures are still a way off the £10,000 goal, so not quite there yet, but as usual please show your support to the independent miniature sector and  back this project, or at least share this with others you know who might be interested in getting their hands on some of these fine miniatures! The KS can be found on the link below, so get your empty bottles on your fingers, clink them together and chant: “Warriors, come out to play-ay….”

    They are nice, but my problem with them is the same I have with lots of other minis these days. They are too big to look reasonable with many existing lines. The pic shows the compatibility with other larger minis, but does not show them with any of Foundry’s Street Violence, Bobby Jackson’s “Thugz”, or any others of the “I’ve been gaming with 28mm for so long, I have tons of them and scenery and vehicles so why did you have to make something incompatible with a large lot of what is out there?” figures.

      I get what your saying, it would have been nice to see a more comprehensive scale comparison, that way it’d even show the figures off better I’d have thought.
      Its another example of scale creep through the ages too I suppose, but in a sculptors defense, sculpts are made to order for mini ranges, so ultimately the blame rests on the head of the project creators, not them, they get told what to do, what size down to the mm etc! 😉
