Re: Prussian Landwehr Drumming up support

Dougie B
Hi Hat,

I would like to place an order for the Prussian landwehr, however there are a couple of things I would like to know, are there going to be 4 bonus figures? if so how many boxes do I have to order to get one of each of the bonus figures?

We are planning for 4 bonus figures with one bonus figure per box. We are also looking for suggestions as to how to distribute them. We will open another topic on this if the crowdfunding progresses to completion.

Dougie B

Also I am going to be moving house in April should I order now or wait until I have my new address?

Please order now. You can confirm your new address once it is settled.

Re: Prussian Landwehr Drumming up support

The Prussian Landwehr have good potential for lots of conversions you could paint them as Napoleonic Russian Militia

or how about Austrian Landwehr with a head swap

or if you swap their heads with Hat's Peninsular British Infantry you get these

The 2nd Landwehr Infantry Regiment of Silesia wore stovepipe shakos at Waterloo

and if you then swap the Prussian Landwehr heads onto the Peninsular British Infantry you get Hanoverian troops for Waterloo many of which were not issued shakos and wore simple caps like the Prussian Landwehr such as these

Could be time to place or top up your order we appear to be stuck on stage 7 and as you may remember every little helps

Re: Prussian Landwehr Drumming up support

Great ideas and inspiration Brian! I hope it's ok but I have quoted your post over to the TMP and Benno thread on the Prussian Landwehr crowdfunder in the hope to inspire some people who might not visit Hat's forum on a regular basis.

Re: Prussian Landwehr Drumming up support

Hi Tone,

Thanks for passing on the post to TMP and Benno's the more who know about Prussian Landwehr Crowdfunding project the better, if you or anyone else could continue passing information or the latest update to your Yahoo group, Reenactment groups, Wargames Club, History buffs, Model shops and friends who knows where it could lead.

You will need to show them the Prussian Landwehr crowdfunding link with the information

Thanks again to everybody and remember Every little helps

Re: Prussian Landwehr Drumming up support

I have placed an order not for hundreds of boxes but more than I would normally buy I hope that helps us get a little closer to the 8th stage, I have been waiting years for the prussian landwehr to go with my favourite Prussian infantry mac sets, so I will sit back now and look forward to seeing the bonus figures.

Re: Prussian Landwehr Drumming up support

That's the spirit Dougie - every little helps.

Let's hope there are some more still undecided - come on in, the water's lovely

Re: Prussian Landwehr Drumming up support

I have increased my order if you are thinking of doing the same or making your first order now would be a good time.

On my last email to Hat about how the crowdfunding was going they replied they would make a decision on Monday, sounds a bit ominous to me.

I know I keep joking about buying the remaining boxes but if you can help us out as my joke is going to bite me on bum.

Remember Every Little Helps

Re: Prussian Landwehr Drumming up support

Hopefully if they are going to call it, they could ring the bell for last orders and anyone on the fence can make their final decision one way or another. Also we could get the word around other forums that its time for last orders if that is the case.

Re: Prussian Landwehr Drumming up support

I have now doubled my order for the Prussian landwehr this is a lot of money for me but they have been number 1 on my wishlist for a long time and I could not let the crowdfunding fail when it's so close to victory.

Re: Prussian Landwehr Drumming up support

Looks like we have lift off Prussian Landwehr Crowdfunding status shows stage 9 Approved, Still taking pledges and the progress bar has turned green.

It looks like Every Little Helps has helped. and Bonus Figures are being decided
