Nottingham-based wargame miniature maker Mantic Games has raised more than $50,000 in a few days, after launching a campaign on community-funding website Kickstarter. The site provides small businesses the chance of raising huge quantities of cash by giving fans the opportunity to help support innovative projects by contributing towards them.

The cash drive started on May 25th with the intention of raising just $5,000 to help provide extra miniatures, counters and unit cards for the upcoming fantasy wargame Kings of War; which is officially launching in June.

 Contributors had the option of donating just $20, which would get them a copy of the Kings of War rulebook, all the way up to $5,000 which sees someone forever immortalised as an army captain. At the time of writing two backers have already pledged $5,000.

In just five days, Mantic soared through the original $5,000 goal and has now topped $50,000. With this extra cash, it will now produce an exclusive orc chariot and fight wagon based on designs and feedback from the community. Overall more than 300 people have contributed towards the project and there are still 24 days to go!

Mantic was set up three years ago with the intention of creating affordable but quality miniatures that could be used across a variety of wargames. The company is now on the verge of officially launching Kings of War, its large scale fantasy wargame, which has been in 'testing mode' for several years.

We're going to be following Mantic's progress over the coming months but, in the meantime, if you want more details head to Mantic's website.
