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.

      Here's a kickstarter that I thought looked particularly cool - they're flat-based tiles with magnets that can be reconfigured anyway you want. The video in particular looks pretty cool. Already completely funded. Prices are a bit high and ultimately the system's not for me, but I thought perhaps some others might be interested. :)

      Story
      The Death Knight Rises
      To me there's only one true fallen paladin who, deceived by the darkest forces, broke his oath and became a paragon of hatred and terror. But, I am into classic TTRPGs, so I wanted to rethink the concept. Boris Woloszyn, amazing sculptor that he is, took over and has transformed this idea into a remarkable sets of miniatures.
        The Miniatures
      There are only two. The Minion is 32mm scale and the Fallen Paladin measures 40mm to the top of his head.They will get cast in the crispest of resins. They come unassembled and without bases. 
        The Paladin - doing a gentle spin
       PLAY The Minions
      The Pledge Levels
      There are two. Ones comes with only the Death Knight, the other comes with the Death Knight and two minions.
      The price for only the Death Knight is 15CA$, the set with 1 Death Knight and 2 minions is 35CA$ (less than 30US$). 
      Backerkit will charge max. 14CA$ for postage on top of that.
        Stretch Goals
      We have one and I will unlock it if we reach 10K.
        Add-On's
      We will open a backer kit pledge manager for those that want some extra minis, and we make sure to drop all the suitable Boris stuff in there too.
       
      I want to give you a little preview what to expect in terms of add-on's.
       
      There will be this well known lot sculpted by Boris. 10C$ each. (In case you want to top up to find out what 10K will bring)
      And there will be some 3D printed things (20 Microns, they paint like casts).
       
      1. This lad and his little buddy, because dwarves and gobbos. 8CA$
      2. 3 Halflings on a rampage. 2 female 1 male, because. Also - kettle jump pack. The pacK of 3 plus 2 steam bases will be 20 C$
      I still have more to throw into the mix, but I need to re-watch that episode now.  
       
      Thanks again!

      I'm about to get a new kickstarter running. I like this one a lot. Really easy to paint and make it look good. You'll need a 3d printer which are coming down severely in price lately for good quality ones.
      This particular set of ruins has an arch theme to it. Images show all unique pieces except for the bridges which have duplicates.
      And the prelaunch link. Due to start Tuesday 8th December https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1173449368/ruins-of-generica
