ADEPTICON!

Hey everyone! I'll be leaving for Adepticon tomorrow afternoon to sell some minis and show off the new board game that I'm working on with Jonathan Phillips-Bradford and Elizabeth Beckley! I cant wait to hear what people think of it! We took a few pictures before we headed out that shows the whole layout of the demo: I'm really excited with how its all coming together! :D If you are going, make sure to drop by our booth and say hi! I'll be sharing a booth with On The Lamb Games and Secret Weapon Miniatures, who were gracious enough to provide me with some space at this show. I'll have the full line of minis there, in case you wanted to fill any gaps! Honestly, I'm looking forward to the show, catching up with some industry friends, and showing off the line that you all helped me put together! As always, I cant thank you guys enough! ...

Adepticon! Also, something stirs in Barnacle Bay…

With Adepticon right around the corner, I'm scrambling to get ready for it! There's a lot of aspects that are coming down to the wire...like waiting on mini's to arrive, waiting on others to be cast, making sure everything is printed and ready to go. The pre-con anxiety is REAL, everyone! That being said, things are going smoothly and I cant wait to get there! For those of you who are going, we are going to be sharing space over at the Secret Weapon booth! They are being an incredibly gracious host! We'll have our entire line of minis there for sale, though Rayna may potentially be out of stock...I'm still waiting on the miniatures to show up in the mail! Make sure to stop by and say hi, and also....to demo the boardgame we've been pouring blood, sweat, and tears into...The Cult of Barnacle Bay! I'm proud to say that we'll have a fully playable demo of our boardgame at Adepticon! Make...

The store is OFFICIALLY OPEN for Late-Pledges! +Future Plans

Hello, everyone! After a few days out of town I'm back, and ready to announce that... The web-store is open for Late-Pledges! This will only be available until February 15th. Backers, pledge management will also be open until the that date for you as well. It only seems fair! :) Oh, and Backers...dont forget to check the "Its finally time!!! :D" update if you haven't been processed yet! You can direct anyone who is interested to the RPM web-store here: http://red-panda-miniatures5.mybigcommerce.com/ All profits from late level pledges will go towards getting new models into production, the first of which is Mary Fixit and G.R.I.T.T.! Once we unlock this new design, I'll add them to the web-store at the special Kickstarter pricing of $10 instead of her retail pricing of $15! It will only be available for a limited time after she is put into production. After we unlock Mary Fixit and G.R.I.T.T., the next model after her will be Liz the Runecaster! Now, with that aside, I want to share...

So, here’s what we’ll do…

Hey guys! I'm here to tell you some WONDERFUL news! I've finally got the money back in my account! :D That means that RPM is fully operational once again! Also, with the help from some amazing and dedicated friends, we've packed up ALL the mini's to get ready for processing. We are fully prepared to get things underway! So, here's what we'll do... Next TUESDAY/WEDNESDAY (December 27/28, respectfully), I will be opening up the web-store for processing! I will give you guys the link to the store in an update, including a visual guide for how this process is going to work. I cant tell you how much I appreciate you patience with this whole process. Its had a few ups and downs, all part of starting a business it seems. Luckily, you guys have helped me through with your kindness and understanding, and I appreciate that. I can barely wait to see what you guys make of these minis when you get them,...

The final shipment of mini’s are HERE!!!

The final shipment of mini’s are HERE!!!

Alright, even though I'm still dealing with the bank and waiting on both the hacked funds to return to my account AND my new business card to arrive, I finally have good news! The final shipment of mini's are IN! Nothing like receiving a box full of Tank and Ibexus's to put a smile on your face! :D So whats the next step? Now, with this and the successful test in our web-store for processing backers and shipping, all I'm currently waiting on is getting my bank squared away again so we can make this thing happen! While we all wait for that, I'm going to task myself with updated all the web-store imagery to make it nice and pretty, come up with a detailed visual guide on how the process will work for backers, and start putting minis into little plastic baggies! As far as the bank is concerned, I'm hoping it will all be settled within the next week. As I'm drafting...

The Samples for Tank and Ibexus are IN!

Hey everyone, I've been really under the weather here the past week or so, but today I received something in the mail that made me feel a little bit better......the new proofs for Tank and Ibexus have arrived, and they look GREAT! :D The new scaled up Tank (he was 32mm, now he's 35mm!) looks great, and Ibexus's new head turned out wonderful. Im incredibly happy with the results, and have already put an order in for them! Now, what does this mean for you, the backers? Simply put, this means that by the end of this week to the beginning of next week, I can get the web-store properly ready processing! :D I'll have everything ready to get your orders lined up and ready to go, so when the last product shipment comes in, I'll be able to pack and ship it away! All we are waiting on is the production run of Tank and Ibexus to arrive. I'll be working diligently to...

Quick update! Tank and Ibexus are ready for casting!!!

The re-printed shield for Tank has arrived and its a perfect fit! :D This means that I'll be sending out these last bits out to Valiant for casting! It also means we are one step closer to fulfillment!!! I'm going to be shipping these out tomorrow and ordering the art books that we'll need for your rewards. Depending on the turnaround, we'll have you guys processed and taken care of in no time! Thank you all for being so patient with me, I know quality control was a major concern of mine and you guys have been incredibly understanding about it all. Wander backers are the best backers! :) I'll let you guys know as soon as the casts come in!...

Art Book proofs are in!

Art Book proofs are in!

Hey guys! I know its been a few weeks since the last update, but this one is a good one, I promise! :D Production Update: Art Books: The Wander Art Book proofs have just arrived and I am incredibly happy with the quality! As compared to the horrible prints I received weeks ago, these are fantastic. They are no longer saddle stitched, and are now bound with a spine. I'm going to make an order for them which makes us one step closer to fulfilling this campaign! Miniatures: So the last two that we've all been waiting for are Ibexus and Tank. I've got the new 3D prints of Ibexus's head, they are absolutely fantastic! Its hard to see, but in person the detail level is incredible. His head originally was one piece, but it needed to be split into two for easier casting. As far as Tank is concerned, I'm just waiting on his newly printed shield to arrive. The one that was printed was...

Back from Reapercon!

Back from Reapercon!

Hey guys! I'm back from Reapercon 2016! It was an absolute blast, there's nothing quite like hanging out with my extended nerdy convention family! :D Besides hanging out with some amazing people and talking to a few awesome attending backers, we had a great time. Here's some pics: While I was there, I even got a chance to paint Jon the Bard! Its hard not to paint a mini while you are at a big hobby-painting convention. Its not great, but I think I did alright!  Production Update: While at Reapercon, it seems like the stars aligned...we had so many issues get resolved while we were there its astounding. Here's what all has happened: Our issue on sourcing bases was resolved upon learning that Reaper Miniatures can produce bulk bases for dirt cheap. I grabbed a handful of them from a factory tour and they are great! They'll be generic round 25mm bases, but I know you guys will be capable of doing amazing...

We are off to Reapercon!

We are off to Reapercon!

Hey everyone! I just wanted everyone to know that I'm hard at work getting the art book fixed and reprinted! As it turned out, there were a bunch of little technical things I needed to sort out with the book, and thankfully I've received a lot of help on that front to get that book in working order! I've already sent the terrible old art books back to the print shop to get a refund, which means that I'll be able to send out the new version for printing soon. That may have to wait until after Reapercon, however. Speaking of.... Reapercon 2016! I'm hitting the road tomorrow with Jonathan Phillips-Bradford and Elizabeth Beckley, otherwise known as the owner of Eldritch Studios and the Miniature Mistress, respectfully. Its going to be a blast traveling to Texas with them! I *should* have all the painted studio models with us there, possibly excluding Fynn but I'm are hoping he'll be there too! I'll definitely...
