Rewards

We are doing this Kickstarter to convert from metal, which is expensive and hard to obtain, to the high quality compound plastic which is cheaper (for you) and more easily obtained. However making the swap requires a considerable investment and that is where the Kickstarter comes in.

about me

My name is Tre Manor. I am a designer and sculptor of Heroic 28mm table top fantasy figurines. I have worked full time in the industry since September of 2006 when I was given my start at Reaper miniatures. From there I went on to found Red Box Games in August of 2008. Since then I have worked to expand my range of figures producing more than 250 individual sculpts all themed in the traditions of Old School Fantasy and intended to be the most internally consistent range of figures available on the market. I have a lot of experience in this business. I know what it takes to design, sculpt and produce a full range of figures and then to keep that range reliably stocked to keep demand satisfied.

 My Catalogue includes figures to represent almost every traditional player character race and class combination, Humans, Elves, Dwarves, Halflings, Half Elves, Half Orcs, Knights, Barbarians, Fighters, Clerics, Thieves, Rangers, Mages, Necromancers, Druids. Etc. Also I have an expansive range of encounter figure types as well, goblins, undead, daemons, undulating horrors, ghosts, hob goblins, Marauders. etc. You will find some 3 or 4 examples of each archetype in my catalogue and if it is not there yet it will be so before the year is out. I sculpt obsessively and I never run out of ideas.

Red Box Games is a miniature company whose mission is to provide gamers with figures that truly capture the aesthetics of the character of old school fantasy art. For each figure to clearly represent an archetype of the traditions. For each figure to inspire the imagination of gamers to create new stories around that figure or for the figure to serve the established role of the gamer's favourite characters. But most of all for the full range of figures, when placed on the the table top, to create such a convincing cohesion that the gamers can truly lose themselves in the illusion and believe the magic of the stories they create with them.


The goal of this Kickstarter is to fund the production of miniatures from our HelsVakt faction in a high quality compound plastic, starting with a modular miniature of the base troops of HelsVakt, the fearsome Gynnade Krigare. In addition to the Gynnade Krigare there will be opportunities to purchase special characters, unit leaders and stretch goals will add additional unit types to the base purchase.

  The full catalogue of my work can be viewed at;

  www.red-box-games.com

  Some examples include;

Fighter, Cleric, Elf Ranger, and Elf Mage
Fighter, Cleric, Elf Ranger, and Elf Mage
Half Elf Druid, Barbarian, Elf bard, Elf Thief

 It is my mission to provide gamers with figures that truly capture the aesthetics of the character of old school fantasy art. For each figure to clearly represent an archetype of the traditions. For each figure to inspire the imagination of gamers to create new stories around that figure or for the figure to serve the established role of the gamer's favourite characters. But most of all for the full range of figures, when placed on the the table top, to create such a convincing cohesion that the gamers can truly lose themselves in the illusion and believe the magic of the stories they create with them. To this end you will never wonder if that Dwarf will outweigh or tower over your Human barbarian. Your Elves will be elegant, ethereal, and fey-like in build and visage. Your humans will vary ONLY within the range of reality and will never ever look as if they are sculpted to different scales. Further so to will all other ranges within the Red Box Games catalogue fit to that ideal.

   Now as I begin to expand my catalogue to include encounter figures and even army units I am faced with a dilemma.... the prohibitive costs of metal. Metal is a commodity that is unstable even in the best of times and as such I must build a certain level of profit into each figure to insure not only that I can afford to pay off the production of moulds and a modest run of metal castings, but also to insure that I can afford to restock what is sold through AND put food on the table and a roof over my head. Recently I released my latest round of figures the long awaited first wave of the HelsVakt expansion. Alas the cost of the metal kept me from pricing the parts in such a way as to spur volume sales. And as a result the first run of metal has only JUST paid itself off. Now I am at am impasse. I can cut into my budget for new figures to restock the metal once and hope to make enough money to turn a profit and maybe restock OR I can cut my losses and discontinue the figures.......... or I can retool the figures in a new " plastic- resin " hybrid material, drop the price and hope to recoup the loss. 

  This new material is a resin plastic hybrid that gets teh same level of detail as resin, is more durable than resin, is produced like metal, and has the cost of plastic. It is an INCREDIBLE material engineered by Ed Fortae of Trollsforge miniatures. I have the frist test castings of one of the figures and I am blown away by the quality of the castings. No bubbles, no mould lines, NO loss of detail what-so-ever. It is like a dream come true. With this material I can finally afford to make more figures and sell them for less money and still make enough profit to continue to do so. The only caveat is that the cost to retool for this production is not inexpensive. 

  This is where kickstarter comes in. By your contribution to this project you will help me to retool the parts for production in this resin hybrid. If this first set makes it's goal and is successful I have already confirmed with the Ed that we can go ahead with production on the rest of the range as funds are raised. To this end I will have stretch goals for each unit within the latest release and, with the support of the community, perhaps more and more of my range of figures. So not only does this stand to save these parts from discontinuation, but it may further create the possibilty to retool more items from the Red Box Games catalogue into this material reducing their cost as well! This process won't work for every Red Box Games figure but it will work for many of them.

  I have very big plans for the Red Box Games line, more figures, newer factions, a setting, a rules book, and perhaps even scenics! It all starts here! Thank you for your time and consideration and for any support you feel inclined to offer.

 I look forward to the honour of populating the theater of your imagination.

Thank you,

Tre' Manor
