"Red Box Games, 17th of May

Well Folks, I have been agonizing over this long enough...... It is time for Red Box Games to change shape. To that end I am going to conducting a final sell off of Red Box Games figures. Through the end of the month of June I will be taking orders on everything in the Red Box Games store which will include some ( not all ) of the previously discontinued back catalog items as I have had a LOT of inquiries about several discontinued items in the recent months.

There are several reasons for this. Chief most being the past year was BRUTAL for Red Box Games. the cost of metal has increased dramatically and I did not make enough profits to reinvest in restocks of current catalog items. This is why the RBG store has been empty for so long. My eye sight has degraded rapidly over the past 2 years to the point now that is VERY difficult to see what I am doing and trying to work with glasses on has been impossible for me adjust to. So making new product to get the store going again has been off the table as well. And even if i were making new product I don't think I could afford to restock AND produce new product as well.

Shipping rates have been a nightmare as well. I have subsidized shipping costs as much as I have been able but the way things are going I do not anticipate being able to afford to do business as usual in the coming years.

Also the competition has never been more fierce. there are SO many great products on the market and so many new ways to deliver products to the existing and emerging markets.

All in all I just the time has come to make some big changes. So I will be adding several discontinued items back in to the RBG store over the next day or two for this big final sale and then ending July 1st the Red box games store will be closed down.

I will continue posting about miniatures and cool fantasy news items and the efforts of other small studios in the table top industry here on the Red Box Games facebook as I figure out what shape RBG is going to take going forward. But the entire current catalog is going into permanent retirement.
I WILL NOT be selling RBG to any other businesses. So if you want these items you will need to get them from me before the end of June.

Cheers Yall!

Bummer. I wish him the best of luck going forward.

This is a real shame. Tre is a wonderfully unique sculptor, a real talent, and he has worked for so long to make his business work. Nobody mixes completely believable garb with strong fantasy figures quite like him.

Hopefully he can still sculpt 1 or 2 figs per year or so for Reaper again. I miss seeing his work amongst the lineup.

A shame RBG is closing and the range is poised to disappear for good. The range complemented Hasslefree quite well. I think I'm going to cling to the hope that maybe down the line, Tre will work something out with them, after all.

Really sad news. Speaking as someone whose eyesight isn't as strong as it was I deeply sympathise with Tre.

 

 Seconded. I've been putting off getting glasses for over a year now. I haven't worn them since I was seven. But now I can't even see the eyes on a mini without serious magnification.

Dang it, how did I miss seeing this until now? I was going to order more paint, but now the decision is easy, buy stuff from Tre, one of the nicest guys in the biz. I'll be doing the Klingon death ritual for RBG when July 1st rolls around.

I'm also sad to hear this. Tre was one of the first artists I spoke to at a Reapercon.

 

Yah, Tre is awesome person. Heck, I was mistook by Con-goers one year of being Tre Manor. ha ha (hence the reason for my title here).

I was unaware of this company, but looking at it now, I love the Norse human miniatures he has. Wow.

Shame. I enjoyed many of the ieces even though the scale wasn't compatible with Reaper. A unique style.

 

How does the scale compare? Smaller than Reaper’s typical figures?

Based on the few I have seen, closer to true 25mm than Reaper's "heroic" size.
