Warbands of the Cold North; Epic Viking 28mm miniatures
Epic Fantasy miniatures in high quality plastic. Vikings, barbarians, valkyries, berserkers, undead, mystics and monsters!
Modular Njorn Footmen WIPs
With this kickstarter we plan to fund the production of Fantasy themed warband starter sets for use in skirmish table top gaming. With each warband set containing all the basic elements needed to play a game of any of a variety of popular table top skirmish games. At the outset, each starter box will contain 5 semi modular warrior figures repeated three times per box for a total of 15 miniatures. These figures include 4 weapon and shield warriors and one archer.
It is my hope to be able to expand the offering in each starter box as the funding allows me to afford more molds. These expanded offerings might include additional troop types for expanded tactical variety or alternate sculpts to replace repeated sculpts for greater variety.
The first Warband Set offered is Njorning hirdmen set which includes ;12 hirdmen warriors, and 3 huntsmen. Each of the hirdmen is semi modular being fitted for universally interchangeable heads and right hand options. The right hand options included with the set are 2 swords, 2 axes, a mace and a spear repeated three times in the box for a total of 18 weapon options. There are also 6 different head options repeated three times in the box as well for a total of 18 head options. The archer model is fitted only for a modular head.
Backers can add to their pledge as add -ons are unlocked by managing the value of their pledge upward by the amount necessary to cover the cost of the desired items. Each new add-on posted will be accompanied by a full detailed description of the contents and the cost of the add-on itself.

The miniatures are cast in a high quality hard PVC plastic produced by a well established and experienced production contractor which handles the manufacturing for several well known table top gaming companies.
Plastics manufacturing has made a great deal of long strides in the level of quality they are able to capture and reliably produce in miniature scale. many very impressive products have been released recently showcasing just what is possible in the medium. I am very confident both in the examples I have had on hand for comparison and in the research I have conducted over the past 4 years that plastic is definitely the way forward for Red Box Games and the plans I have for future projects.
I am still however a very cautious person when it comes to new ventures as I have endured some very hard lessons in the past teaching me to take it slow at first. To that end I want to keep this campaign manageably modest in scope. I feel that the plan I have laid out is sound and deliverable within a reasonable span of time and the product offered is excellently made and designed specifically for the medium. I am confident that I will deliver to your full satisfaction.
Finally, I am just a guy with a dream to create great fantasy miniatures and possibly one day a great fantasy game. I have worked very hard in this industry for a long time with a long well established line of great products to show for it and the dearly treasured support of a lot of really great people. I have had some hard knocks and things are never easy, but in the end I could never be happy doing anything else. This is where my heart is. I am not at all afraid of hard work and I will always see to it that I deliver on my promises. But in the end I am still just one guy with a dream, skill, and dedication to a goal, I still need your help. I have my ability to sculpt, my ambition to create, my dedication to this purpose, the help of a few very talented friends ( Thanks for all the great Art Dave! ) The support and patience of my darling Wife Kristy, and the help of many wonderful people such as yourself willing to chip in what you can to help make it all possible.
Thank you very much for your time, your support and encouragement.
Risks and challenges
This project will face different challenges than what I have experience with in that the production will be handled in a foreign country and the medium is plastic rather than metal. The contractor I have handling the production is however very well established and prepared to deliver and is proven capable of doing so. I have run 7 other kickstarter projects to date with most of my projects delivering on time or close to on time. I maintain communication throughout the duration of production providing what updates I can.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
