They posted an interview with Bobby Jackson and Julie Guthrie to YouTube. At at the 6:30 mark Bobby makes a comment about having Jason and some argonauts in the Greek Odyssey expansion, to which Ron alludes to it being a part of the expansion. They also reference having a Golden Fleece.

It has no base.  When Ron and I discussed it he said that for retail they would likely include a 130 mm black base, but they weren't sure yet. I assume that for the KS, it will just be the spider, unless they add one at the factory in China. At any rate, I can't imagine why we would have gone to all the trouble of ensuring that it is free of a base only to attach it to a base (it was literally part of my design parameters to be baseless).

 

You might want to ping Ron. He was definitely talking about adding a base on stream. By the sound, it was a support issue.

I take it that you don't find the 74064 160mm base close enough to 6"? 

I use a 1" gridded play mat. Some of my players are not as gifted in spacial geometry as I...

Not filling the proper space on the mat would... cause problems. 

 

Plus, at 160mm it hangs over the edges of its space, making placement of human-size mini's next to it, in the proper grid space, problematic.

@Pezler the Polychromatic they started playing dumb about flumphs. Either they are doing a Ron and being coy/teasing or they were really unknowing about them.

It's possible that they might not know. As for Ron, every time I bring up flumphs and he denies it, I keep getting the feeling that he's pulling a Ben Kenobi on me. "What I told you is true.......from a certain point of view."

Maybe.  It's an interesting way to write it.  Either they are going to do like you say, and do a variety each in its own color.  But I doubt they will get involved with folks picking a color; so you'll wind up with a random one?.

 

Or, are they going to cast different parts of the same dragon in different colors?

 

Or does it mean they just haven't made up their mind what color???

 

 

In the bones 3 pledge manager they set it up so you could choose a different colour of weapon sprue. I don’t see why they couldn’t add an option to pick the color. 
 

Better yet, leave it clear and have add on dragons available in different colors.

Love the Arakoth spider, looks very cool... but I will never get it as my wife is severe arachnophobic. She gets paralized just looking at the rendering on the screen!

Ah, that’s right!  I had forgotten.    That would certainly be the ideal if they decide to go with producing different colored ones.  

 

I can’t imagine sending out random ones wouldn’t just lead to a lot of unhappy customers...

@Glitterwolf regarding the Ship. Jon said it is still undecided about Translucent, Solid or both... so still in the air. 

 

Ah it's going to be an Airship?

 

Right, all kidding aside, solid means I'll  buy it, translucent means I won't and if they won't be absolutely clear on the subject by the end of the KS I'm not even going to risk it.

https://www.wargamestournaments.com/product/round-bases/  they cut bases and have even larger than 150.

 

GW has 160 but gw is very overpriced.  i like their bases though.  i use rectangular bases (so squares, etc) so i made a rubber mold of their largest rectangular bases and pour resin to make my own.  

 

if you dont care about the style of round bases, message me. i can check - i should have various sizes of mierce, GW, etc round bases.   can just send them.  

 

i really like the new bones spider.  i think its look is even better than the arachnarok BUT of course, due to the high detail plastic and multipart, the detail in the arachnarok wont be met with bones, even bones black.  I think my preference now is: Gol Gul, reaper bones, arachnarok.

 

if ppl want to get an idea of a high end job on a spider, including adding hairs to its legs and webs, check this out (not my work):

If you need a 4-6" square base, you might want to consider picking up a cheap bathroom or kitchen tile from your local home improvement store. I have used them for palettes in the past, and they rarely cost more than $0.50 at that kind of size. (unless you go for a fancy, specialty tile)

      First Legion 75mm Fantasy "Femmes Fatales" Resin Figure Kits
      A new series of provocative 75mm Fantasy Resin Figure Kits, each one beautifully sculpted and cast and a joy to paint.   
      Who We Are
      First Legion has long been a leading producer of 60mm scale superbly hand painted historical metal and resin figures as well as metal and resin figures kits in various scales. We most recently expanded into 28mm Fantasy miniatures with a huge launch of amazing sculpts that will be coming to retail early next year.   Please visit our websites and social media for more information.
      First Legion Historical
      First Legion Fantasy
      First Legion Facebook
      First Legion Instagram  
      The theme of the series is "Femmes Fatales", beautiful but dangerous women characters. Whether by force,  guile, or seduction these ladies are not to be fussed with.    There are 7 figures in total, each one more beautiful than the next and ranging in style from Gothic, to far eastern, nomadic, northern, and even an Aztec.   The commonality to them is that they are all stunning models of beautiful, dangerous women.  
      Those of you who followed our 28mm Fantasy Minis Kickstarter will recognize these figures from the "Femmes Fatales" Core Set.   They were originally sculpted in 75mm scale and reduced in scale to 28mm to be included in that KS as part of our 28mm fantasy series.  We present them here as originally conceived.    
      Unlike our 28mm KS, which had 170+ models, this KS is purposely very simple and very succinct.    Stunning models at great prices with rewards shipping in just 3 months!    
      Pledge Levels
      The first 5 Figures listed below are tied to pledge levels with selections to be made in our pledge manager following funding.   The higher the pledge level, but better deal it is on each figure.  
      Early Bird Pledge Levels are open for the first 27 hours.
      Add-On Sets
      The last two are available as an add-ons only, or as part of the "Drop Dead Gorgeous" Pledge Level.  Finally, there are three more that will be optional add-ons tied to stretch goals. 
      Resin Figure Kits
      All miniatures are produced in high quality resin and provided unpainted and unassembled.
      Mature Audience
      The figures below contain some nudity and are not suitable for audiences under 18.
      If you are offended by such figures, please stop reading and just move on.   They are purposely designed to be risqué, sexy, dangerous, and above all beautiful.

      I’m interested in what people here think of this.
      It seems like a great idea, but I’m wondering if there might be some unforeseen drawbacks.

      EDIT: It's live! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/oathsworn/oathsworn-burrows-and-badgers-anthro-miniatures-mouse-dog-cat
       

      We love miniatures. We love tabletop games. We love anthropomorphic animals, from Disney's Robin Hood through The Wind in the Willows to Brian Jaques' Redwall books. So we combined the things we love in our Burrows & Badgers tabletop skirmish game and the accompanying range of miniatures. And our Kickstarter backers have already helped us to grow the range to over 100 miniatures - but now it's time to add some more!

      Some miniatures from previous projects...
       
      Why are we making more miniatures?
      Because we want more characters for our Burrows & Badgers games – my Freebeast warband needs reinforcements, for a start! 
      And we know a lot of other people are looking for more anthropomorphic animal miniatures too. A lot of people are playing Burrows & Badgers now, and many of them have asked for Massive Hounds and a Massive Raptor, so we've sculpted them! Some will want to use them for other tabletop or roleplaying games, while others love painting miniatures, and our figures are perfect for that, full of character ready to be brought to life with your paintbrush....
      And some people just love collecting miniatures; again, we've made this new set of Burrows & Badgers figures perfect for collectors. They are all single piece models, with integral bases, so there are no fiddly parts to be glued on.
      We love making miniatures; we hope you'll love our miniatures too.
       
      Why we need your help...
      We've got 17 new miniatures sculpted, but they need to have moulds made before we can start producing the miniatures. And that's why we need funding; to get the production moulds made, and get the casting process started.
       
      About the miniatures...
      There are other ranges of anthropomorphic animal miniatures out there, but ours are a little different. We didn't want all the races of animals to be the same size. Instead, we've scaled them to each other; so a shrew or a mouse is a very small model, about 20mm tall, and a really big animal like a badger will stand about 50mm tall, for example.
      Each sculpted figure shown below has a scale picture with it, showing its height in millimetres. All our models are supplied unpainted.

       
      The Pledges
      We’re keeping it as simple as possible; there’s an ‘All-in’ pledge, which gets you all the new miniatures in this Kickstarter, and any bonus bits that may come along… there’s also a ‘Pick’n’Mix’ Pledge, if you just want to get a few of the new miniatures. For the Pick'n'Mix, just total up the prices of all the miniatures you want, and pledge for that amount. There's a minimum pledge of £10. There's only six of the sculpts shown so far, but expect more to be added regularly... I'll probably add two or three a day!
       

      ^Minimum of £10

      Pledge Level: The Great £40
       

      Pledge Level: The Small £64

      Pledge Level: All In £99

      About
      -Hi everyone, this time I propose you a Fishing Village:
      5 Houses   7 Footbridges  1 Bridge -A few years ago I did something similar for video games 
      here you can see the video: and I've thought of creating models suitable for 3D printing.
      -The models are in scale for 28 mm miniatures and are divided into components to be assembled without glue only joints.
      -Doors, windows, nets and winches are printed separately.
      -Each house is playable inside, with working doors and on the ground floor there is a fireplace with the pipeline out.
      -The prints you see below have been made with an Ender 3, layer 0.2 mm, infill 5%, Pla Geetech white, the models have been designed to have as few supports as possible, I printed them with an overhang of 80 ° -85 °, support Z distance 0,3 mm.
      -I highly recommend the use of printers with a print bed of at least 20x20x20 cm (for this scale).
      -Paint with cans and acrylic colors.
      -Each house needs about 500-800 grams of filament.
      -I put hooks scattered on the houses to attach cordage or oil lamps 
      -I remind you that only digital models will be sent to you, NOT PHISICAL ONES.
      * Good fishing ... *
      By removing the base you can have houses for a land village.
