Instigator (4/8)



  1. Just want to point out that the image above is actually of printed pieces, not 3D renders. Had a brief chat with Tom on Facebook and he said that the "statue" was printed at 0.1mm layer height while the columns were printed at 0.2mm layer height. They were then given several coats of grey primer before being painted with regular craft acrylics. They took the picture in their office, lighted with an LED lamp.
  2. By pledging $1 you get access to the pledge manager. You don't get any physical models for that $1, although it of course counts towards the total amount you pledge. Once the pledge manager opens up after the campaign (it usually takes about two weeks for Kickstarter to transfer the money and information to Reaper) you'll be able to select the models you want and pay for them right away. You can select one or more models at a time, but you have to pay each time (including any shipping changes). You can continue to do that until the pledge manager closes at the end of July 2018.
  3. You mean Arnise (which Bryan revealed earlier)? http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/arnise/sku-down/14018
  4. Well, funding has now been cancelled. I did contact Kickstarter about the campaign, so I don't know if others did the same and they contacted the guy.
  5. Stay far, far away from this Kickstarter. I just asked if the guy has a contract with Blizzard, on his "company's" Facebook page, and my comment was promptly deleted. So it's not like he's unaware that he's infringing on someone else's IP.
  6. Heck, I'm surprised it even got approved. Kickstarter is running a huge risk here, Blizzard could even go after them for facilitating the sale of their IP.
  7. Not just a WoW vibe, I'll be surprised if Blizzard don't go after them. They even have Trolls coming up.
  8. The Ruined Chateau stretch goal has been unlocked and Matt has provided every combo-backer with a new bonus item. A cool ballista model! There's also an update on the hoarding system for the castle and this model also shows how it's compatible with the Rampage system in general by incorporating the prototype for the Rampage Heavy Wood Walls and Hoarding Roofs that will be included in this Kickstarter. You can also see the Rampage Crypt door in the tower.
  9. Newest free bonus item (if you pledge for one of the combo- or all-in pledges). A trebuchet!
  10. That is, of course, entirely your prerogative. I'm not sure I entirely agree on the price with regards to files vs. e.g. kits, though. If it was a kit then: 1) You'd be limited to what you got in the kit. 2) In order to expand upon a kit you'd then have to buy more parts/another kit, making the total cost rise even further. With these files you can continue printing as many parts as you want, in order to make different configurations (when it comes to the castle) or to expand on e.g. a Western city. The files are also optimized for 3D printing, without needing supports and the like (or the supports are part of the design, e.g. cross beams under a bridge). Heck, if you print it in a high enough resolution you could make molds of the parts yourself and cast them in your choice of casting material. I'm currently finishing a print of one of their former models, the Observatory (only need to print the cupola and the telescope):
  11. Now with free hoarding system included in the Rampage Castle package.
  12. I've backed all of Matt's/Printable Scenery crowdfunding campaigns (for the whole package each time - I'm also all in on this one). The models are superbly modelled and specially crafted for 3D printing. I'm currently printing the tavern from their Winterdale Kickstarter campaign. That's being done on a printer that's currently up for pre-order for $349.- (the Trinus by Kodama) - it doesn't have the biggest build plate, but Printable Scenery provide the models in smaller files too, so even the smaller printers can print them. (the rubber bands are just for holding the pieces together since I haven't glued them together yet) Here's a video covering great 3D printers for $350 or less, in case you want to try it out, but isn't sure you want to put down a lot of money right away. It's done by Maker's Muse, one of the most popular 3D printing YouTube channels.
  13. 150K is a big jump, though... I wonder if it's partly to slow the pledging down?
  14. Must admit that I'm disappointed that a Froghemot was added before some of the other stuff (especially the female frost giant). Much less useful than any of the other stuff we know were possibilities. I wonder if enough will be interested in the Froghemot.
