YES! In the five style that I keep hyping!  And more!  As an add-on so I can get 10= copies!

 

What is the five style?

 

(btw someone might have posted something about the not-Stegadon and the not-Carnosaur on the Lizardman army forum... ) :ph34r:

I know it seems odd that Reaper just can't say 'Of course if Brexit would elf you over, we'll just ship from the US instead'. But we don't know what their legal contracts with their distribution centers say, and I doubt Ron or Bryan knows word-for-word either. Contracts are long, evil things. International contracts are WORSE. That's what legal departments are for. And something I've learned working as convention staff, you do not comment on contracts (ESPECIALLY on pending contracts) unless you've been cleared to do so. So Reaper is falling back on statements of principles, such as that they won't collect taxes unless they can pay them on your behalf, because doing so otherwise would be illegal.

 

If the worries about VAT are too much for you, drop to the $1 level.

 

Brexit isn't scheduled to be completed until April 2019 currently, and that's IF the current negotiations finish between October and December of this year. The timeline could change. And there are over 700 treaties that the UK will have to renegotiate.

 

If the governments aren't sure what is going to happen, what chance does a mini company have of knowing?

Ooooo! Blacktooth! A T-Rex by any other name... and I like the pose!

I just want to register my terrific disappointment in the 80's-style therapod sculpts for the raptors and rex. We know, at this point, that the various raptors had feathers!

 

I have so much disappointment, in fact, that I'm going to get one anyway, just to spite you. :)

Personally, I like the "dinosaur" look. Yeah, we know they were a bunch of angry chickens on steroids, but the LIZARD look is still embedded in many of our hearts.

these just have bird mange or something, even more dangerous because they're sick and angry :P

They're molting... Come on now...

 

And we don't really know how gathered they were, or how developed the feathers were. Chances are a lot of them had... Well... Fluffy feathers.

Anyone else notice that $2,380,000 is the highest revealed goal, both on the map and on the T Rex? That seems... unusual.

 

In the past, Reaper has always scaled back the distance out that they reveal on the second to last day so that the KS doesn't end with a load of revealed yet unfunded minis.  I assume that they are doing the same thing now.

In part, because people continue producing art with 40-year-old interpretations of archosaurian integument*. :)

 

*Skins, shells, and the various things sticking out of them that cover an animal

 

Anyway, I can be grumpy about it, or I can show you awesome new things. So: awesome art! I think these look much better than the old reptilian look, myself:
