A lot of good news, and a smidge of bad news….

Hey guys, this is Heath from RPM! As you guys know, the fulfillment date for this Kickstarter was set for the first quarter of next year, which was enough time to give us some wiggle room with production. I've been working my butt off to deliver earlier than that, without sacrificing quality. The idea was to get everything settled and organized so I could start processing orders through the web-store early enough to get all the rewards fulfilled so I could sell some product at Reapercon (which is later this month). Due to some delays from outside circumstances, that early deadline wont be possible. Here's an update on both the good and bad aspects of this news: The Good News: Production copies of Roland and Jon the Bard are on their way! This means that we'll have 5 out of 7 mini's ready to go, which we are actively organizing! The production casts look incredible, and we couldn't be happier. This being a...

Jon the Bard is FINISHED! Also, remember to fill out your Surveys!

Jon the Bard is FINISHED! Also, remember to fill out your Surveys!

Hey everyone! This is Heath, from RPM! I have some exciting news for everyone... :) Jon the Bard is officially FINISHED!!! Patrick Keith just wrapped him up, here's a few pictures as proof! Just like Rayna, he's done an amazing job once again. He's missing his dagger on his back (which has been sculpted, I assure you!) but all in all he is complete! Mr. Keith is just doing a few cuts to make it production ready and it'll be off to Valiant for production! We've also got some new painted studio miniatures from Elizabeth Beckley! Here's Ibexus all finished up, and some professional shots of Kira and Rayna!   We've also had one of our backers from Gencon pick up a copy of Rayna and apply her own color scheme. Looks great, Rie Kendl! Keep up the awesome work! :D Production Update: Minis: Valiant has officially starting casting and producing mini's for Kira and Fynn! They'll be shipping them my way tomorrow so we can start sorting...

Kickstarter Surveys have been sent out!

Kickstarter Surveys have been sent out!

Hey everyone, its Heath from RPM! Surveys have officially been sent out! Make sure to fill them out as soon as you can! Survey's have been sent out to all reward tiers! Now, some of you might see that there's a lack of questions that a normal Kickstarter would have, but that's okay! Its purely due to the fact that we are processing every backer through our web-store. We will have plenty of miniatures in stock thanks to you guys, but we needed to get a number on on all of our non-miniature related Add-Ons. This way we can get an order in for everything non-miniature related and start focusing on processing rewards for you guys. Now, the quicker you can get surveys out to us, the quicker we can get to processing your pledge! We are hoping that we can get everything ready and shipped by the latter half of October, which is ambitious but we think we can do it! Some info...

Production Update!

Production Update!

Hey guys, this is Heath from RPM! :D Its been too long since you guys had an update on production and what else we've been up to! First off, here's a production update on the Kickstarter. Kickstarter Production Update: We are slowly inching towards getting everything tweaked and ready for casting! The amazing Patrick Keith is working hard on some of our base goal models that needed some extra attention...so you guys know, here's what all we need to do to get the base level models ready for production: Fix Kira's ankle; its too thin and has a high potential to break, and as the main point that connects to the base it needs to be beefed up. Remove the bow string from Fynn's crossbow. It is either remove it or make the bowstring thicker, and Patrick and I agree just removing it is the easiest option. Separate Tank's right arm and shoulder armor from the body to ease casting. All the spikes on...

Back from Gencon!

Back from Gencon!

Hey guys, this is Heath, the Owner/Concept Artist behind Wander! We are officially back from Gencon! It was an incredible convention for us, and we cant thank On The Lamb Games enough for hosting us! GENCON Wrap-Up: While we were there we sold a bunch of Rayna models, talked to some amazing Kickstarter backers, and got some amazing reviews of our mini's! Working with Valiant as our pewter caster has paid off, because the production models quality is absolutely amazing! We cant wait for you guys to get your hands on them. We also had our painted mini's in the case, along with some 3D printed mini's! You can see them here: If you would like to see some of On The Lambs painted models, you can find them from Tabletop Gaming News Facebook post here: https://www.facebook.com/tabletopgamingnews/photos/?tab=album&album_id=10153870421447945 We were also interviewed by Dawn from Beasts of War about Wander! Check it out: Here's a link to their live-blog during the convention: http://www.beastsofwar.com/liveblogentry/whats-new-red-panda-miniatures/ Production: We honestly couldn't be happier with...

Production! Plus, Gencon!

Hello Wanderers! :D Production: So, first things first...production is going great! We will have to do a minor amount of editing to the base models to make them a little bit more caster friendly, but beyond that we are looking to be able to deliver earlier than our expected delivery date, which was March 2017. We are waiting on the illustrious Patrick Keith to have an opening later in August to tackle sculpting Jon the Bard, seeing as he did an amazing job with Rayna. We have received a package of casting samples from Valiant Enterprises, who have been casting for 20+ years, and they look amazing! We couldn't be happier with the results. We also just got the email from Kickstarter saying that they are finally sending the money from the campaign our way! This means we can start doing production runs as soon as we get some of the base models tweaked a bit for casting! Again, we couldn't have done it...

An Epic Start to the Kickstarter!

What an incredible first 48 hours to the Kickstarter campaign. So far we have cleared $3k in crowd funding, which is half of our base goal! Its all a bit unbelievable, but we know we still have a big journey ahead of us. We'll be keeping up posting, giving regular updates and doing a few live-drawing sessions with our artist to help promote the campaign and to help flesh out some stretch goals down the line! Until then we will still need your help sharing these posts with anyone who might be interested! Keep it up guys, we are doing great! :D To help with this, we decided to start a contest on Facebook that gives one lucky winner a FREE "Wander Level" Pledge! We have a post on Facebook with this image in it: ...and if you LIKE, SHARE, and COMMENT with your suggestion for an animal and class combo, you'll be entered for a chance to win the free pledge!...

The Design Process

The Design Process

Hey everyone! With the Kickstarter looming just 14 days away, we wanted to share the design process for one of the characters of Wander! We will eventually be doing a google hangout before the campaign launches to show the process as its happening for a character that will eventually appear as a a stretch goal, but for now we'd like to show you how we came up with the design for Roland! We are going to hand it over to our talented artist, Heath "BA" Foley! He'll take you through the process of designing Roland from beginning to end!   Hey guys, I'm really happy to share how the design process works with everyone! I've worked both digital and traditional mediums over my art career, but for Wander I'm sticking with digital so most of the work you are about to see was created with a Wacom Intuos Monitor and Photoshop CC. I've been designing characters for years, so this is my process for how I...

Time to start the Kickstarter Countdown!!!

Hello everyone! We are just 19 days away from the Kickstarter officially launching on the 20th. We couldn't be more excited about this, but we need all the help we can get about spreading the word far and wide! As a small company, we are really going to depend on our fans sharing any posts or news we put up with their friends, its a huge help! We can only reach so many people, and we'd like to reach so much more to let them know about our campaign and the mini's we are planning on producing. If it helps anyone out there who's on the fence about our campaign, we've put together a handy Kickstarter Info page on the site to help inform any potential backer out there :D Its got a lot of info on the base goal, some stretch goals, add ons, and much more. We figured if it helps people make a decision about the campaign, it...

Kickstarter Launches June 20th!

We are ecstatic to announce that June 20th is our official launch date for the Kickstarter! We've got everything set up and ready to go, and we couldn't be happier. There's lot to do, but we've got the base goal lined up and if we can clear it, there's plenty of stretch goals lined up as well! We are going to share some info here, and create an official Kickstarter page on the website to help supply any info that our potential backers need :D Currently the base goal will unlock 5 characters that you can see on the graphic above! They're all already sculpted, but putting them into production is always an intense and expensive process which is why we decided to go with a Kickstarter campaign. It will allow us to get these miniatures off the ground and into everyones hands MUCH faster than we would have been able to on our own. Plus it will open up the possibility of introducing...
