So far, the only browser I have experienced this with is Edge. Clearing the cache did help and I haven't noticed it happening again. I typically use Chrome and have not had the issue there.

 

Thanks, I do use Edge, cleared my cache and we'll see if it continues to be a problem.  I did a quick test and it still seems to log me out pretty quickly.

So, I saw new bones stuff on the main page yesterday, but they've been displaced by some paints and new metals this morning.  And when I click into plastic figures none of them are showing up now.  were they removed, or is there a problem with the search for plastic minis?  We really need a way to see 'all' minis, because something is being missed (possibly because of tags being mixed up again...)

Also, when I click on the 'shop miniatures' button on the main page, none of the new metals will pull up at all,

You can fnd them by selecting the correct series of plastic miniatures...

Both bones and bone black sections show Jakob Knochengard as the most recently released (and brother hammond).  Yesterday there was the plastic version of Bergamot up there, the Rockmaw, and the Women of Dreadmere pack, among others.  I can't find any of those now, even searching by name.  I suppose it is possible they weren't supposed to be up yet but it's weird that they were there all day yesterday and are gone now.

 

I know Bergamot was there because I have him in my wishlist now, but clicking on him takes me back to the search page.

On the flip side of this: clicking on any of the new metal mini's sends you to the Bones Black page. They are also not shown under any of the metal listings. If you search for them they come up and you can still add them to your cart from the listing on the main page.

https://www.reapermini.com/search/bases/latest/74041

 

is listed as having "bones plastic". I don't think the bases are made of bones material, right?

 

Without either more knowledge than I have or chemical testing, it's very difficult to tell the difference between PVC (Bones material) without added plasticizer (think PVC pipes) and ABS or styrene or whatever other low-ductility plastic.

 

Reaper could answer that question definitively, but since they haven't I'll say that I wouldn't be at all surprised if the bases were PVC.

I Miss the old site.

Yes! I am not the only one! I added one of them to my cart and he is still in my cart but I can't find those minis in that group anywhere! It was Dreadmere women, halfling scout, I don't remember what else. I waited on placing my order to see the new minis and am still hesitating on ordering because now I want to see what the Bones Black is for next month as I am not a fan of the monk.

I have to say I agree to the sentiment.

 

The thing that annoys me is the brokenness of the site for it's intended use (buying minis), which involves three setps:

 

  • Searching: This is a mess currently
  • Buying: At least in the EU region VAT info is missing (but seems otherwise functioning)
  • Notification: If a mini not in store becomes in store again or allow preorder. Both not possible at the moment.

For someone coming to the site for the first time this leaves a horrible impression (and really for everyone else too).

 

This coupled with the lack communication/news (why is there even a news section in the forum anymore?) it leaves a sour taste.

 

That said I know managing the site is a one-man show and the poor guy probably has better things to do then write updates.

BUG: All the new realeases links are broken and drop you onto the figure finder page.

 

Otherwise nice change with the new stuff being presented on top.

Yeah, this was a regression I didn't catch in time. Sorry. It should be fixed now. 


My bosses don't actually like the new releases on top like that. They're going to get a click-through banner for their own page. So, there you go.

 

If there's a missing item, click on the "notify me" button on the product detail page. You'll get an email when we get it back in stock. 

 

Not sure why news isn't getting posted. I'm spread a little thinner than usual, running the UK warehouse and managing the web development at the same time.

@kit

Just a thought, what if we had a community volunteer or two who could be looped in on certain things like the upcoming release schedule or other newsworthy items, and could handle posting that information in the way that Ladystorm used to take care of?  Really not trying to be difficult here, but as it stands now the news section on the website hasn't been updated since may 9 when the reapercon tickets went on sale, and the news section of the forum here hasn't been posted to since April (and the newest new release post there is from February)
