  1. Ratmancer the stand-out there! Wouldn't mind one of those at all...
  2. Ugh, despite the huge financial upside of this coming from my EU stablemate Poland, the need to reserve dwindling funds for the VAT/Customs bill for Bones V meant I ducked out of this in the last few minutes. I agree it was a monstrously confusing KS, but when you deciphered it all the value of the Village pledge was Reaper-level staggering by the end. I've convinced myself I'm going to prioritise painting my Bones V townsfolk and Brinewind terrain in its entirety to compensate. Then maybe scratchbuild a tavern to put it all in. Or I could just wait until t
  3. 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.
  4. Woah, that set really is pick of the litter! Fingers crossed I actually pushed the button on it at the very end, but I genuinely don't remember - and we're so close now I don't want to spoil the surprise. But I do know I'll be mighty unhappy with him if 2020 Me dropped the ball on this one.
  5. I've somehow forgotten what I went for in the final days - and I refuse to check! I know I was sorely tempted to add Dark Depths, mainly for the Giant and the Slithe, and by the Mammoth and the Ghoul and Vampire encounters, but I just can't remember if I put up the cash for any of them, or indeed for something else entirely. Opening the box in a few months is going to be an adventure.
  6. Bones painting guilt is at the back of a 40 year-long line for me! My first minis were Prince August home casts, so they all got melted down again at some point, leaving me guilt free (fond memories of little pools of multicoloured Humbrol enamels floating on the molten metal for the few that did suffer my 11yr-old attempts). Alas I still have my first purchased Citadel mini, a pre-slotta hill giant that is shorter than some Reaper dwarves, and after 38 years it remains untouched by paint. From the days before primer many of my other fantasy folk bear only the odd smud
  7. Hmm, still waiting, but I'm sure I did all the necessary. I'll go check! EDIT: Oops, looks like my phone number was missing! Cheers for the heads-up Guyra, I was about to send them a whars-mah-goodies-at email!
  8. What you're missing is how it's working (or rather not working) in practice. https://www.bbc.com/news/business-55734277 VAT is being misapplied twice, levied on top of handling fees relating to customs declarations, larger courier firms are refusing to ship in and out of the UK due to extraordinary delays etc. No doubt it'll settle down into unpleasant routine, but for now it's chaos that no-one wants to get involved with.
  9. The ongoing nightmare of getting anything into the EU via the UK at the moment would almost make me want to forget my order instead of incurring who-knows-what fees and delays. It's specifically confusion around the re-shipping hub model that seems to be causing the most serious problems at the moment. I've no problem with paying taxes due, that's the norm, but the seemingly random outcomes we're seeing from the compounded mess of US-UK then re-ship UK-EU, no thank you. I know it's very far from Reaper's fault how things are going, but I the possibility of a EU hub was dangled duri
  10. Safe to say that you can trust Midlam. The gold standard of tight little kickstarters
  11. So lovely. Pricey, but perfect.
  12. Thanks, Pochi! They did indeed say that. However, I watched Friday's Twitch stream as closely as I could, and it really looks like Aganzarax's tail is part of the base, even as Ron was saying the feet were separate . I'm just trying to see if I can double-up on Dragon+UseableTerrain and thus justify yet more money, but in this specific case I think not. Some of the other dragons definitely looked separate to the bases, and all of them looked fantastic. Surprised how nice the Shadow Dragon looks in the translucent material, and I love the unique back-and-tail plating
  13. I'm sure this has been made clear a thousand times already, but do we know if Aganzarax separates from his scenic base, or are they one piece? Haven't had a chance to watch the latest Twitch.
  14. If there's one thing I've learnt about Kickstarter over the years, it's that there is NO channel, style or frequency of communication, or wording of same, that will get through to everyone. With over 18K backers and 13 months since the campaign closed, it's just a numbers game: some folk are going to get lost and confused, and blame the creator. Ultimately, if we *really* wanted that dwarf crypt, we've had well over a year to find $16 and pull the pin.
