Hello Again Kickstarter backers new and loyal, longtime supporters and fans of Red Box games! We have returned again to kickstarter in the hopes to fund our newest selection of fantasy norse figures that we call the Njorn.
Our intention is to fund the production of a new set of heroes and their faithful follower rank and file troops. We also intend to fund the set up of our in house production capacity! This means buying a spin caster, a smelter, all the various periphery of safe casting, metal shelves to hold molds ( LOTS of molds ) having our molds shipped to us from the various contractors we currently partner with, and raw metal to do the casting with. Being set up for in house production will allow us to reinvest in the various aspects that will make your experience with Red Box Games more efficient and better presented, as well as allow us to manage our working capital MUCH more efficiently.
We currently reinvest a disproportionate amount of our profits into maintaining reasonable stock levels across the entire breadth of the red box games line. This is a HUGE investment that grows every time we add new products to the line. It also means we have to rely on kickstarters much more because we simply cannot afford to just put new items in to the store without knowing that the funds are already there to pay for the production and stocking of said items.
Once set up for casting we will be able to keep the funds of the business' success where it belongs, in the future of the business. It also has the added advantage of allowing us to afford lower prices across the board and able to take chances on items which are too risky to produce through out sourcing such as larger monsters and cavalry and Rank and File sets appropriately priced for army building.
To insure that the high level of quality you have come to expect from Red Box Games is faithfully maintained, I will be training in casting with a VERY talented and experienced mold maker and caster. I wont be handling the entire burden of casting right away so there is no need to worry that this development will slow down delivery of the Kickstarter or the regular course of business for RBG.
My molds will continue to be made by one of the industry's best studios as well so there is no need to worry that the burden will overwhelm me or that the overall quality of the Red Box Games product will suffer.
I cannot do any of this without your help so please consider backing this kickstarter! You will get some really cool stuff for a GREAT price in a reasonable amount of time and I will FINALLY be able to set up for my own production and make some real progress in this industry!
AAAaaannndddd without further Adieu...... ON TO THE MINIATURES!!!
We intend to fund as many figures as this kickstarter will allow and at the outset of the campaign we have 19 figures ready to go with a few slight details needing to be added before they are ready for production and I still have several more underway which will be shown as they are completed and added to the campaign as the funding allows.
Please se as follows for the full selection of miniatures offered in this campaign;
KICKSTARTER EXCLUSIVE!! Thorarnr the Storm Hammer!!
available as a free addition to all pledges of Warband or Alla Njorngarna but available as a selection option or $8 add-on as well!
Any of the miniatures shown above can be selected as singular selections. or the entire group can be selected.
Backers can pledge for an entire warband ( 25 figures in total as of the launch of the campaign ) cast in high quality white metal, or pick and choose individual figures from the selection funded by this campaign.
HERO ..................This pledge level rewards backers with 1 copy of any one of the figures successfully funded through this campaign cast in high quality white metal.

WAR BAND ..............This pledge rewards backers with their choice of any 25 figures funded through this campaign.
ALLA NJORNGARNA........This pledge rewards backers with one copy of each of the figures funded through this campaign AND one copy of each of the figures currently offered in the red Box Games Njorn back catalogue, including also a few of the recently OOP models as well.
All figures will be produced in high quality lead free white metal.
Most figures will be cast in a single piece. However some figures may need to be cast in multiple parts to allow for the most reliable casting. These figures will also be cast in high quality lead free white metal as well.
All packages will be shipped in BOXES rather than envelopes with any appropriate extra packaging needed to insure your rewards are delivered perfectly intact. It is my hope to also be able to invest in some fancy schmancy marketing materials and snazzy packaging to go in with your beautiful Red Box games minis.
All packages will be fullfilled from the United States. Postage will be collected within the kickstarter pledge. However it is not always possible to predict when / if postage costs increase to deliver to foreign countries. As a result we must reserve the right to bill for any additional postage needed to cover the shipment of your rewards. We do not try to profit from the postage of our packages and will always keep the cost of delivery exactly in line with the actual costs.
For those who are unfamiliar with me as a sculptor and with my business red box games I am a sculptor of finely detailed 28mm scale fantasy miniatures. Most often specializing in minis of a Norse theme. I founded my business in 2008 and have been producing miniatures ever since. In that time I have produced some 300 odd figures for my various ranges of Men, Elves, Dwarves, Goblins, Halflings, Orcs, Demons, and Undead of all kind of role for each of those range themes. I have now run 7 kickstarters and have fully delivered on 7. I always strive to produce figures of the highest possible quality and have gone to great lengths to see to it that I deliver fully on all of my promises.
Risks and challenges
I have a great deal of experience in running and managing kickstarter projects and in the production of metal miniatures. I have run and successfully delivered on several kickstarter projects. the risks in metal production are minimal and challenges are easily surmountable. Risks include needing to outsource to different manufacturer in the event of schedule conflicts or unavailability but there are SEVERAL metal casters from which to choose in North America. The challenges might include being above to deliver successfully in the expected frame of time. I have had difficulties in this area in the past but I ALWAYS deliver on my promises.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
