From the campaign:

Red Box Games is back again to fund the production of a new range of fantasy adventurers. Well known for our already expansive line of fantasy adventurers and various Monster figures we now want to expand and update as much of the line as possible, This means all new sculpts for as many of the various ranges in the RBG product line as funding will allow.

Beyond that we are looking at a new set of Norse themed Undead the Draugr, a mounted Hordesman hero, and possibly 2 modular Giants to complete the HelsVakt Horde list. With 4 days left to go we can still make it with your help so if you find any of these appealing please pop over to our Kickstarter page and have a look.

From the post:

Well it has been a long while coming but I am now getting ready to relaunch my HelsVakt Barbarian horde via a kickstarter campaign which will be launching int he next 14 days. This campaign will hope to raise the funding to pay for the production of several new models. The first and foremost will be the production of new Hordesmen models. As of now these will be semi modular figures fitted for universally interchangable heads, shields and weapons.

There are also plans for a mounted Hero, two heavy weapon heroes, and a set of archers as well.

Thanks for your time and consideration.

Red Box Games is previewing their next big project

From the announcement:

at long last the three RBG kickstarters are wrapping up fulfillment and I am now ready to start showing off what I have in the works next. This is a the beginnign of an all new all original IP that will take fantasy out of the staid European Olde World and into an all new alien world.

For now I am only showing off a few WIPs for the figures that will be int he new project and only discussing some of the broad details of what the project will be. You will have to wait for the launch of the kickstarter to get all of the details of this all new all original IP.

The figured pictured here represent the undead faction of this new genre IP.

Red Box Games launches Norse Warriors Kickstarter campaign

Red Box Games has a Kickstarter campaign going for a new set of Norse Warrior miniatures.


From the campaign:

Please help us to fund the production of these six new Njorn Character figures. The sculpting for these figures is done, the resin mastering for these figures is also done, All that is left to do now is to produce the spin cast molds that will be used to cast the the metal copies and to then cast those copies in sufficient quantity to satisfy demand, this process usually only requires about a month to complete. However given the MASSIVE workloads on the very few contract casting services in the US means now that delays in production are very likely and can also be very lengthy.

Red Box Games launches Kickstarter to fund a line of Dwarves, Goblins and Orcs

Red Box Games launched a Kickstarter in order to fund a new fantasy line of models including dwarves, orcs and goblins.

From the campaign:

Hello again Kickstarter!

For those of you who do not know me I am Tre Manor, the owner and sculptor of Red Box Games Miniatures. I have been in the business of making miniatures since late 2006. I founded my own company Red Box Games in late 2008 and I have been making my own products ever since. I recently ran a KS campaign in the hope to begin a new line of products cast in a spin cast resin material. That effort unfortunately did not work out positively and now I find myself trying to pick up the pieces and try again to move my business forward in a more positive direction.

I am setting upon the production of new product and HOPEFULLY the development of the world and rules set AND the set up of in house metal casting! To help make this happen I have set out to expand as many of the existing RBG ranges as possible. I have many concepts to work with and a thirst to succeed and expand to fuel the roaring engine of productivity and creativity that I know I can be.. As of now I have a set of 8 goblin footmen that are nearly finished and will be sent to the moldmaker in the next week. Beyond these I also have 3 goblin wolf riders underway that will be sent off for molding along with the goblin footies. To oppose the tricksome savages I have 6 modular Dwarven footmen under way as well which should be ready for the moldmaker very soon as well. Beyond those I have plans for Modular Orcs, Modular Elf footmen, Modular Norsemen, and a slew of new Heroes and Villains. However before I really set to work on these other items I want to first be certain that these other items are securely funded.

Red Box Games make it through another stretch goal

Red Box Games went through another stretch goal, getting the funding to add solo options for two heroes.

From the update:

Well looks like we have made it beyond the $15,000.00 mark. That means that the Solo options for Blacktongue and Dog’s Bane are now funded and available for selection. Now we have the bonebacks on our sights!! beyond the Bonebacks…… the long awaited Goblin Wolf riders. Can we do it?

Red Box Games reorganizes their Kickstarter goals, unlocks Footmen

Red Box Games updated and shuffled around the stretch goals for their Kickstarter project and as such have declared their Footmen to now be available.

From the update:

With a bit of reorganization, the goblin footmen are now funded and we are most of the way to getting the first character models.

Red Box Goblin Kickstarter has begun

Red Box Games launched their Kickstarter campaign to fund a new line of minis. They’ve already made their basic goal and so it’s stretch goals from here on out.

From the campaign:

Many of you very generously supported my previous Kickstarter campaign which is delivering as I type and the reactions to the effort have been incredible. Now I am set to finish the transition from metal to plastic for the rest of the RBG line. This is still a VERY significant investment and not something that I can afford without your support. It is my intention to offer the entirety of the RBG line a material that I can price to bring RBG figures to every gamer’s table in the hobby. It is further my goal to expand RBG to encompass more of the Traditional Old School Fantasy Spectrum. I want to produce, Characters, Monsters, and even Terrain! I can do this with your help. The HelsVakt kickstarter was a great step in the right direction and with your help and support we can make this Kickstarter into something huge!

We are beginning with the goblins by popular demand but I have a LOT of stuff to retool and I will be taking every comment and request under consideration as the campaign progresses. It is my plan to move on to the Dvergr or the Aenglish after the goblins are retooled, hopefully there will be enough time in this campaign to make that happen but that is all up to you!

Red Box Games’ new greens previews for their Kickstarter campaign

Red Box Games is doing fantastic over in their Kickstarter campaign. They wanted to show off the green for one of the models they’re working on for it.

From the preview:

here we see Conradt the Crazed’s waiting form nearly finished. Bear in mind he is massive next to other RBG models, this is intentional and will be explained in his fluff. The figures stands precisely 40 mm tall so he towers over other figures standing 32 to 36 mm tall. Now just imagine that his Warp form is almost twice as big as this!

Red Box Games Kickstarter reaches $30,000

Red Box Games made it up and over the $30k mark and they wanted to show off some thank you artwork.

From the update:

Well Varp Kriggarre (warp berzerkers)are just about funded and there is some pretty cool stuff coming down the pipe including a Varp hero: Conradt the Crazed! There is also a cool Horde Heroine, Svetlana. Over on the RBG forums the stylish thank you card is also posted. Pledge now or have your skull nailed to a banne!

Red Box Games metal to plastic Kickstarter at 400%

Red Box Games keeps rolling along over on Kickstarter, having made it to over 400% funded. How much higher can they make it go in these next 2 weeks?

From the campaign:

With the $20k mark being reached the highly cool and very multi-part hordesmen are now funded! Super cool evil barbarians to go with the superb evil knights! The Aenglish footmen and characters are also funded. Comming up next is the witch Yrsa and Fenris the wolf god. Goodie goodie gum drops!

Red Box Games posts up more stretch goals and model WIPs

Red Box Games is over 300% funded over on Kickstarter with still 19 days to go. So they’ve posted up a bunch of stretch goals and are hoping to break them all.

From the campaign:

Hey Hey Hey!

ok after much preparation and numbers crunching I have got the next 5 stretch goals figured out and published on the main page. More pictures will be posted as the stretch goals get nearer. Also I am working on more pledge levels and reward options. I want to be sure that i do not improperly word these AGAIN so this may take a little more time to finish that did the Stretch goals. Also I should have some WIP shots of the Ulbrecht the Soulless figure very soon Hopefully by tomorrow evening. I hope you guys will like the new stretch goals and I look forward to your opinions! So go have a look and tell me what you think!

Red Box Games’ Kickstarter makes it to 200% funded

Red Box Games New Releases

Red Box Games modular Aenglishmen now available for pre-order:

From their post:

well unfortunately the goblins won’t make it this time around. I was just too dis-satisfied with them to publish. I AM working on them though so they will see release by next month ( which is going to be HYUGE! ) with the HelsVakt foot and armoured elites.

BUT!!! I do have the modular Aenglish ready to rock and roll. these are due in hand by the end of the week next week. These are fitted for universally interchangeable weapons, heads, and shields. So the combination you see pictured are not the only possibilities. Further the next series of modular Aenglish will be compatible with these for even further possibilities!

So now Whistlocke has his band of hardmen to bust up the alley gangs of ShieldPort! These are availible in two SKUs. There is a 4 pack for $24.99 and an 8 pack for $39.99.

Hope you like them!

Cheers, Tre’

Red Box Games Sale

Red Box Games announces mark downs and Discontinuations at Red Box Games:

From their announcement:

hey guys, not neccessairly new products but some new pricing on a lot of stuff and a lot of combined SKUs. Mostly just older stuff bundled together with the likely suspects and a few discontinuations.

Lots of goodies priced to sell NOT discontinued but they have been sitting long enough I either need to price them down or toss em out.

Also if you have not gotten Conradt, Morgrimn, or Yrsa, you had probably better do it now. I do not want to run the mould down and I am not sure they really have enough left in em to justify a new mould so get em while you can cause they is going. Conradt is all but gone already but there are a few Morgrimns and a few Yrsa’s left as well.

I have also put the price down on the Trolls and the Infernal Horrors. AND the Wraith Knights are now availible as individual models, as is the Weapon Sprue. Thanks,


Red Box Games October releases

At any rate this month I have;

Bruiser Gus, Sleeper in the Alley, Puller of Corks, Cracker of Skulls…..ever needed that hard to find Half ORc thug? This is your figure. Big, ugly, dangerous and slightly ridiculous looking he will strike fear into the hearts of any bumpkin unlucky enough to get lost in the Big City back alleys.
