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 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!

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...

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...

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

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...

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...

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...

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...
