About

WHO DOESN'T LOVE ORCS AND GOBLINS RIGHT? 

 Those ever present mischievous murderous little rascals and their big stupid brutish cousins go a'rampaging all over the Auld World just often enough that adventurers always have something to do and always show up in significant numbers that your heroes get a good muscle building / skill developing song worthy workout in the process. And these heroes really NEED some awesome enemies to fight right? After all what is a hero without a worthy foe? Tooooo right! NOT VERY MUCH!!

RED BOX GAMES makers of finely detailed, exquisitely designed and expertly sculpted 28 mm traditional western fantasy miniatures presents;

And here they are all gussied up and ready to smash bash and thrash fool hearty would be adventurers painted by Sebastin Picque at DEad Fish Painting with pics granted by the very generous collector who commissioned them from Seb. You can check out more of Seb's awesome body of work on facebook at https://www.facebook.com/DeadFishPainting/?ref=br_rs

  SCALE REFERENCE PICTURE!!!!

   pictured below from left to right RBG Orc, Reaper Orc ( sculpted by me as well ) and a GW Orc ( which wasn't sculpted by me but maybe might have liked to have been )

 Hey look at that!!

   With your generous support and encouragement we hope to fund the production of a boxed set of fearsome beasties fit to harrow your favorite adventuring heroes in primeval forests old and dark and shadowy dungeons dark and deep. 

    Amoungst these burly brutes and sneaky scamps you'll find;

    2 modular Orc Warriors fitted for universally interchangeable legs ( 2 ) right hands with sword or axe ( 2 ) left hands with weapon or shield ( 2 ) and helmeted heads ( 2 ) repeated TWICE for a total of  4 modular figures

    2 Modular Orc Brutes fitted for universally interchangeable legs ( 2 ) bared heads ( 2 ) and weapon options Sword or Mace ( 2 )  repeated TWICE for a total of 4 modular figures.

    2 Runty Goblin Archers cast in a single piece with short bows at the ready repeated TWICE for a total of 4 figures.

    2 Runty Goblin Spearmen cast in a single piece with crudely wicked Spears ready to puncture adventurers repeated TWICE for a total of 4 figures.

     2 Runty Goblin Warriors cast in a single piece with battered rusty swords just perfect for cleaving and cutting hapless passers by! Repeated TWICE for a total of 4 figures.

     All this in one box for the low low price of $40.00 USD! 

     We ALSO have Orcs only Horde boxes where in you will find 16 Orc bad asses just FROTHING at the maw to rend and slash, and bash and smash for the super awesome price of just $40.00 USD

     Aaaaaand cause yall asked for it!! A Goblins only horde box where in you will find 24 of the filthy little rapscallions gnawing on each other's ears and licking their blades and just generally being a writhing mass of stinking pelt bound meanness ready to be unleashed upon those picturesque little hamlets a-scatter in your storybook la-la land. Also for JUST $40.00 USD.

     See? Not much math stuff, lots of Orcs and Goblins. Who needs them book learnin talkie times anyways? Not Gobbers and Orcsies don't.

     It is our hope that as the campaign progresses we can add items to the offering and perhaps to the initial box contents as well HOWEVER as this is our first effort in plastic manufacturing we want to be sure we are responsible and take this slowly keeping everything nice and predictable and efficiently produced and delivered. So there will only be a few additions to this campaigns. We don't want to get too ahead of ourselves with promises but we also want to make sure we make the most of this campaign that we can. You CAN NOT go wrong with more and more monstrous beasties eh?


    Please be aware you can buy as many of these boxes as you want! Personally I don't think any orc or goblin warband is complete unless it nearly breaks the shelves under it's ponderous weight when stowed away between sessions of rampaging blood thirst. 

   If you want to add to your rewards you can do so by managing the amount of your pledge upward by enough to cover the addition of as many green hellions your heart desires. 

  And remember a forest without goblins under every hedge is just not a forest worth trodding through for any self respecting adventurer! And what would goblins do once they DID grab the attention of those hapless Adventuring jerks without their trusty overgrown and significantly less intelligent cousins the Orcs! Big hulking murderous brutes just FROTHING at the mouth to rip into a nice shiny suit of plate mail to get to the squishy red gooey center!!!

  HEY! Yes. YOU! You want to look TOTALLY awesome?! of course you do. ESPECIALLY when looking awesome means wearing a truly kick ass Face of the Orc God T-shirt. No stupid logo. Just an awesome Cave drawing of a screaming horned savage Beastie who strikes fear into the hearts of all who cross his path. You too can borrow a bit of that thunder. Just buy this T-shirt. Wear it proudly. When people ask you where you got that piece of awesomeness Growl! Laugh! Maybe slap yourself in the face a few times and beat your chest and say YOU are a proud contributor to the Red Box Games Hordes of the Auld World Orcs and Goblins kickstarter campaign!

  available in men's sizes S M L XL XXL XXXL XXXXL and XXXXXL

  Want one? All you need to do is add $25.00 to your pledge and you too can look totally awesome in command of your Orcses and Gobbers!

  Your characters are heroes! MIGHTY adventurers! They DESERVE awesome enemies to fight! the theatre of your imagination DESERVES fantastic minis! YOU. NEED. THE HORDES OF THE AULD WORLD ORCS AND GOBLINS BOXED SET!!

   The whole idea of this kickstarter is to fund the production of these fantastic monstrosities in high detail hard grade PVC plastic similar to many of the newly beloved board games recently hitting the market like a spiked ball of steel in the gnarly green fist of a feral Orc berserker rampaging through the ranks of silly tights wearing doods who spend all their time preening their poofy feathered hats and shining their armor and dancing with their little swishy poke " swords " and singing songs about damsels and wine and stupid stuff. Do we really want those kinds of doods in charge of stuff and ruining our good time? No. No we do not. We want Orcs and goblins. Lots of them. That is why plastic is good; cause we can make a LOT of them and sell them cheap.

  So to help us do this well we need your help to allow us to pay the high cost of plastic production with tried and true manufacturers who have produced many of these exact same great boxed game projects.

   Ok this is serious. Shipping is important and can be costly depending upon where in the world you need your stuff to be delivered to. Because we do not know exactly when the project will complete production we cannot bill for postage until the product is actually in hand and ready to deliver. We are working to build a base frame of reference for the shipping costs and we are also working to establish relationships that may allow us to ship from hubs in various parts of the world to mitigate those costs. 

   We will work to keep the postage costs as low as possible cause we don't really want to make money from shipping we just want to get your stuff to you as soon as possible cause once you know you have orcs and goblins on the way.... well they just need to get there fast and cheap right? 

   For now though the only region in which we can reasonably project postage costs is the US. We will be shipping orders via priority mail so as long as your stuff fits into a priority box ( and we will be working to make sure that they do ) you can expect to pay the priority mail shipping rates.

And Say! If you like all this snazzy artwork we have here you should check out Dave's artwork over on his facebook page https://www.facebook.com/Zhu-Industries-765057203635151

And Hey! If you want to check out our existing catalog you can follow this link here to view the Red Box Games body of work currently available! All of these figures are going to be cast in metal with the exception of just a small few of the larger pieces being cast in resin.

Risks and challenges

My name is Tre Manor. I have been in the miniatures industry since 2006 launching my own business in 2008. I have a significant amount of experience in producing resin and metal figures having produced some 300 odd figures over the past 10 years of being in business for myself. I also have a good deal of experience running and delivering on kickstarters having run and delivered successfully on 11 of them since 2012. I DO NOT however have any experience in the production of plastic miniatures. I have never dealt directly with Chinese production firms nor handled the importation of goods from China. However I AM in contact with competent advisors on these subjects and I have contacts and quotes from reliable and proven Chinese manufacturing firms who have a proven record for delivery and professional service and exemplary quality.

All of that said there are aspects of both production and delivery that go wrong in the production of plastic miniatures and the importation there of. Delays in production, delays in shipment, delays in customs. All of these can be factors in the course of the fulfillment of the campaign as well as changes in the actual product as it goes through the process of plastic production.

We will be actively working to insure this campaign runs as smoothly as possible and that the product delivered is a quality product.

You as a backer need to bear in mind though that by pledging your support to this campaign you are taking on a degree of risk that the end product may be different than the product shown in the campaign or that delivery may take longer than projected. We will always work to be sure you are as satisfied as we are able to but we cannot offer refunds once the funding for the campaign is secured post kickstarter. If you pledge to this campaign you are here by acknowledging that you accept that we cannot offer refunds of pledges.
