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):

heres a tutorial on how to do the webs that he put up:

the hairs are fake eye lashes.

Thanks for sharing! Eyelashes a great idea!

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)

      Archon Studio (LOAD, Vanguard of War, Chronicle X) are branching into modular terrain. The project is now Live:

      Apparently it is "full plastic injection" so not the same as their minis. The concept seems interesting, but the preview page is far from finished, so it's hard to get a good grasp on prices (one "Starter Pledge" for $49 is all they currently have listed, along with a $20 add on). The whole magnetized modular wall system looks like it could have potential.

      About
      Digital render of the finished sculpts. In the last six or so years I have played a lot of tabletop games, ranging from Warhammer and Dungeons & Dragons to smaller games like Frostgrave and Relicblade. I have fallen in love with the hobby of painting miniatures and everything surrounding it. A year ago I made plans to give something back and to add something to this hobby community I love so dearly.
      My background in digital game art helped me a lot since I was already familiar with the software to sculpt digitally. So I started working on a few miniatures I would like to produce. Most of them were abandoned in favor of better ideas, but eventually I created this set of three goblins. These goblins are each embodiments of the archetypes found in many of the games I love: the wizard, the fighter and the thief/ranger. 
      I spent the last year figuring out how to cast resin to the standards I saw in the products I enjoy and how to make sure digitally sculpted details translated well to the tabletop scale.
      These three figures are the end result of that progress, but hopefully the start of a lot more.
      I made this Kickstarter to cover the costs of the materials used and shipping, but mostly so I can bring these little goblins to your tabletop :)
      All miniatures will be multiple parts cast in resin and supplied unpainted, with a 25mm gaming base.
      The final resin casts.

      They drag their feet one in front the other, deliberately, slowly. They  crawl out of their resting grounds. Out of the tombs to the fresh air,  slowly, unrestained. 
      Scylla Models is back presenting you a new range of Villains and Undead monsters for your collection. The models we present you are master casts  white metal (primed white for better result in the pictures), with the only exception of Zuula. She on her Night Terror is our first large monster and we decided to go resin. The results are quite impressive as you might see in the picture. If you want to know more about  us visit our website.
