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

something i drew many many many years ago   seems fitting

I totally agree with you in that those particular exaggerations are not very realistic in function. This was a challenging character/figure to create because I wanted her to read as feminine but als

@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.

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

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!

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:

 

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.

      I'm happy to see they've launched a 2nd KS, as I missed out on the first one.
      Here's the blurb from the Kickstarter, which is live and already funded here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/292543184/wallhalla-2/description
       
      Hey, everyone! We're Ill Gotten Games, and we're back for another round of Wallhalla, the modular, 3d printable miniature display shelves!
      We're kicking this new series off with a Dangerous Dungeon theme that comes in two available styles:

       Classic: (left) the original format found in Series 1, optimized for miniature display. Classic shelf units also include versions with recesses for standard round bases (20mm, 25mm, 32mm, 40mm, 50mm, 60mm, and 70mm).
       Wall Sprawl: a new, terrain-style take that lets you build vertical dungeons and play on your wall space! (It works great as a display as well, especially if you want even more of a diorama look.)
      Both of these sets are 100% compatible with one another and with any of the sets from Series 1. This campaign is for digital STL files, not finished, physical products, and you'll need access to a 3d printer to make them. All of our Wallhalla designs:
      print 100% support free and are optimized for FDM machines!
      assemble with durable, built-in slide-fit connectors, and don't require glue!
      can be configured (and reconfigured) into whatever build suits your fancy!
      are easy to paint!

      A new Kickstarter that may otherwise go under your radar.

      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/star-schlock-astros/star-schlock-astroguards-miniatures?ref=project_link

      Very entertaining 70’s/80’s nostalgia aesthetics.

      I barely received my last campaign pledge from Midlam that already it has something that caught my interest.
       
      Sisters of the Kraken Cult. The female counterparts of the previous "Onslaught of the Cult of the Kraken Lord" and "Cultists of the Kraken Lord". (I now have some regret of not getting it)
       

       
      What's also interesting is the optional add-on of fish folk.

       
      Brinewind is going to have some interesting neighbors.

      RPG Sidequest Decks
       
      Ending soon. Card decks, each with a side quest. Pretty straightforward.

      Been watching the previews for this on Bold's Instagram,  Some crazy cute models, this time sculpted by  Ismael Nieto.  I'm particularly fond of Bisa and Tori, the winners of the dino race, and the BatPacker is too cute.  Resin cast and STL like their last several releases.  I've picked up their STLs before and been very happy, Planning to try to swing for at least one in resin this time, though shipping from Sweden hurts.
