IWM Announcement

Iron Wind Metals would like to extend a warm welcome to BV Traders Mike and Chuck, who will be officially taking over running our convention booths starting with this year’s Origins in June. Mike and Chuck are seasoned convention vets, and have worked our Gencon booth with Jim Fox for the several years in addition to their own con booths at many eastern shows. 

We also want to say farewell and good luck to Mr. Fox, who has started a new career and will be stepping down from working conventions. Jim has represented IWM on the con trails for years, and will be missed - although we still expect to see him at cons, only having fun not just working.

We are also very glad to say that Mark, Beth, and the rest of the regular crew plan to continue to do Origins and Gencon as well, as often as they are able.

So, aloha to Jim and welcome aboard to Mike and Chuck. We’ll see you at the conventions…

Help Paint the Goblin Horde

We began this project at CincyCon 2017, unsure if anyone would want to partake in the "Goblin Horde" project.  

 

Much to our suprise, it was a tremendous success, and 2/3 of the people who took part in the paint and take choose to paint a Goblin for use in future Demo Games.  Over the three days, 92 Goblins were painted.

This provided 1.5 units of Archers, 2 units of Swordsmen, and 4 units of Goblins with Heavy Weapons.

  

Several friends of Ral Partha, including some former employees and associates of the company stopped by to paint a Goblin.   The majority of the painters had never painted a minaiture before.  Several were under the age of 12.  We are happy to add add their work to the Goblin Horde.

Over the next few weeks, we will getting the basing done on these, to match the rest of the Demo Armies, and then photos of the painted minis will be posted here.  As the Goblins are used in Demo Games across the country, we will following their successes on the website.

We will be continuing this project at various conventions in the future.

Demo Team Members Wanted

    We are currently building a network of Demo Teams.  We are looking for active players with a strong sense of sportsmanship, and a dedication to fantasy war gaming.  We need point-persons in every community, and a local demo team to support each point person at regional events, and local conventions.  IWM will invite the best Demo Team members to demo at major gaming events.  Demo Team members will help IWM create new rules, consider revisions, and build future scenarios and campaign settings.  Demo team members will also be supported with badge assistance at major events, special discounts, exclusive miniatures, and the opportunity to purchase new releases before the retail market.

 

Please Contact Us if interested.

Kickstarter Wave II Production

Production keeps rolling onwards, and the piles of cast miniatures in the factory grows daily.

These racks contain the new molds created from the 1st and 2nd waves of Chaos Wars Releases.

 

We've had a few small hiccups with some vendors (nothing to worry about) so some orders are waiting on printed packging or T-Shirts to arrive before we can ship. But some orders have already gone out the door, and more are being packed as I type this.

 

It's probably going to be a nail-biter for us to get this out by the promised date, but we are determined to do so. However, we are not willing to sacrifice quality. Everyone at IWM working very had to get you the best product in the quickest manner.

 

You should all have your miniatures in hand shortly.

 

I'm looking forward to hearing your responses once packages are opened.

Photographers Wanted

    Photographers are invited to help us create a vast array of images for our catalogs, advertising, and future rules and campaign sets.  All Photography work will be credited.
