I saw that they kind of "officially" announced the Pledge Manager being open in today's update...anyone heard any info on the status of adding PayPal?

 

I think it's in the "soonTM" timeline still.

 

First order put in!  2x Dragon Bust, 1x new paint set...  And there's what I pledged gone, with 40% of it having gone to shipping o_O

@TaleSpinner noticing that Arakoth suddenly needs a base, a question.

 

Can this spider support it's own weight in Bones?

I had this girl in Bones and her legs part under the weight so much that her belly touches the ground, I ended up not painting her and cutting her in half for future parts.

I would rally like to know if Arakoth is sturdy enough to stand on it's own when cast in Bones.

Yes and no. Aarakoth is designed with this in mind. When properly assembled, the abdomen just touches the ground providing a 5th point of contact.  So no, it shouldn’t slump. The base was added to help people index the legs better as they assemble it, but it shouldn’t be needed if you have your own base, just make sure that the 4 legs are glued to some sort of base or in sockets so they don’t spread over time.

I think I would rather a clear flying base under the spider and a clean sculpt rather than a pile of crap underneath 

 

Once more, it doesn’t need a base from a support perspective, it is there to aid in assembly and indexing the feet. It should support itself fine. Even my spreading comment is likely incorrect as I designed the legs for strength, but am trying to cover all possibilities. In resin it is totally rigid.

the resin would be, but i wonder, similar to people having issues with models with large wings, i wonder if there is risk of the legs bending in bones.

I suggest someone (who isn't me because spiders are icky) test this. Get two giant spiders and assemble both, one with base and one without. One to go on the shelf and one for sleeping on the couch with after using it to prank the wrong person ::P:

Thank you, I will get one, maybe even two, I love the sculpt but would be disappointed if it slumped.

You and me both.  I put a lot of thought and time into its design to prevent that.

I'm bummed about Arakoth. I know that the sculptor said he'd been instructed to build one that didn't require supports, and he had done so. Not sure why it suddenly needs a base, but a hollow one that size may very well warp and be a PITA to deal with. Here's hoping, though. My Cave Spider did fine without the stalagmite impaling it when I rebased it...

 

I know @TaleSpinneralready responded, but go check out his WIP thread where he goes into much more detail about the base, how and why he designed it the way he did, as well a walkthrough of how he built the spider itself. It's super cool and informative! 

 

Here's the link: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/88957-the-making-of-arakoth-the-ancient/

 

Huzzah!

We'll need two people for this.  One to pull off the prank and one to post the results here after reading the local obituaries.

      Story
        Depending on the amount of orders received for each project, delivery dates might vary. The initial shipment dates indicated are not final, and even though we're committed to giving all our customers the best service we can, sometimes the amount of orders received might make the final shipment date vary compared to our initial estimates. Please keep this possibility in mind before placing your order.
      Regarding both the bundles and the stretch goals described above, no swaps of model of any kind are allowed. Therefore, please don’t ask us to swap any stretch goal with other add-ons or any perk models with other miniatures, because that cannot be done.
      We created something for those who like to not take themselves too seriously, for those who would like to relax while painting - with less details, but by no means not enough of them - for those who love their minis with a side dose of cuteness overload and, finally, for those who might have children to introduce to miniature gaming, by giving all of these people something that players will love (or hate, as the case may be) no matter their age!
      Wait a minute… delivery estimated after only two week after the campaign ends? A Greebo campaign?!
      Oh yes, and here’s why: because we’ve started production already! We’re convinced that we can reach the campaign goal, at the least, and that’s why we started the manufacturing process of everything. Therefore, the second you complete your Pledge Manager (let us remind all of you, if you don’t complete it, there will be no shipment, so do it!) your package will be processed and sent, just like that.
      We want to open and close this campaign in record time, and we’re confident that we can do it!

      Kobolds Vs. Goblins is a game designed, tested, built and played by my son Max and me (You saw him in the video).  The concept was something we came up with for a contest on The Game Crafter using roll & write mechanics.  What we ended up making was a fast and fun game that can be played by people of any age.  It's quick and easy to learn and setup is as easy as opening the box. 
       Max and I decided that people shouldn't be forced to buy our game just to play it.  So, you are free to download the full color print and play version of the game using this link.   FREE PRINT AND PLAY  (including solo mode) You'll need 6 normal D6 dice and something to mark the paper.  (For prototyping, we used clear cubes, but pencil with eraser will work also)
       
       
       






      I'll admit... I have no idea how those of you who share KS from others include all the details and fancy stuff. I clearly didn't do this correctly. Munchkin Metropolis traditionally does woodcrafting, and I've been very satisfied with the quality and production time that's come from my prior interactions with him. Figured I'd try and get the word out about his current KS, which he developed with his son.

      A message from Secret Weapon:
       
      Big news time everyone!
      As many of our pledgers know, we need to adjust the Kickstarter - On the positive, we have a good amount of backers and we know that MANY of you are waiting to up your pledges. We have had a really positive response to the product itself, and lots of interest on the customer and retail side. We deeply appreciate this and your support.
      BUT - we have a good amount of backers who are opting to wait on their $1 pledge. This is entirely our fault. We caused this when we locked our core offering behind stretch goals. There is no single item that is core. ALL the options are core. We made it so that many of you had to wait around to buy what you already knew they wanted.
      That's a big boo boo, but it was made with the best of intentions. The system was set up so that there was no mandatory amount, and you added what you wanted and nothing more. We thought that this was better for the customer, but it quickly became obvious the vast majority of backers want jump-in points at set amounts like a usual KS... and weren't entirely sure about a pledge manager that was open during the campaign.
      So, what are we going to do to fix this for you?
      We are going to close the campaign, and relaunch it next week. That sucks and it's embarrassing. But ultimately everything else that happens is great for EVERYONE, because this is what happens next:
      1.) ALL themes will be shown and unlocked right off the bat. If you want Urban Streets or Infinity, you just go get it, no hoops or delays to choosing what you want. You also know exactly what is on offer.
      2.) There will be pledge levels: $50(+), $100(+) and $200(+). The 100 dollar + level will include a set of 3 weathering pigments (really really good ones too - Burning Sands, Dark Earth, and Rust Orange), and the 200 dollar + level will be the pigment set, and a set of 3 genuinely awesome paints. Secret Weapon's Rubber Highlight, Rubber and Tire Black, our most popular colors! At the end of the campaign you will use the Pledge Manager, as usual, to make whatever specific choices you want based on your KS pledge. The Pledge Manger will be available during the campaign for those that would like help figuring out a total pledge level, but that is optional, and you can wait until the end of the campaign to sign up.
      3.) Each of the $50(+), $100(+) and $200(+) pledge levels will have 3 shipping zone options
      Americas, Europe (NOT UK)
      AU, NZ, Asia, Pacific
      United Kingdom (NOT Europe)
      4.) Any extra themes that are developed during the course of the KS will be added immediately, no stretch, we just give you the option as soon as it is available.
      There will be 17 themes live at the time of launch, which doesn't count the licensed product from Corvus Belli and CMON Zombiecide.
