Why would GW do that instead of demanding an immediate cessation? I don't see much evidence for anything sinister going on here. Moulds wear out, you know...

Yeah if GW were dropping the hammer, why just these totally-not-chaos duders? Why not… well, everything else Artel sells? I don’t see these as any closer to whatever arbitrary line of similarity you want to define than their not-Eldar and not-orks.

I’m just hoping it wasn’t something catastrophic like the moulds and the digital originals being lost in a house fire or something.

A number of other people/companies just happen to also be ceasing production of GW compatible stuff right now, and that's while GW is actively seeking copyright informants assistants.

As the saying goes 'once is an accident, twice is coincidence, three times is enemy action'


Or companies are protecting themselves from potential action.

I'm not saying sinister, I'm saying regular old copyright law, and as to why it isn't immediate, I'm not an expert on international copyright law, so I have no idea why and this is transparent speculation, but I think generally legal paperwork has dates attached, and this is probably what someone or other thought was legally appropriate, considering it's not binding until a court says it is, so they can't immediately enforce it even if they wanted to.


C&Ds have no legal weight whatsover, so GW could have demanded an immediate cease of production just as easily as one under a time limit.

They've pulled stuff before when GW asked/told them too and gave a warning they were going off sale on a set date

(and clearly GW haven't been bothered about most of their 'inspired by' minis)

so if they have been asked to take them down this is just what they did last time (now why these might have caused more of a reaction?)

There's references to it in this thread round about here, BrookM makes the first reference to stuff being pulled and ArtelW confirms it but folks have time to grab stuff before it goes
https://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/390/721279.page

not sure if their facebook page still has the details on (such a pain to try and find something there) but it might if you want to dig

We may see STL files of the soon to be pulled models in the future, or maybe not. They handed those out for a limited time when the previous round of GW and Blizzard inspired designs were pulled.

Due to personal and health reasons not an active mod right now, sorry for the inconvenience.

I decided to take the plunge and get the Dread Squad ripper apothecary from an ebay seller who had it in stock (at a markup of course) as i didn't want to trust pandemic era international shipping after some issues last year. Dayum! There is some serious detail on that fig and it's a great casting from my quick unboxing. I haven't done a detailed look at every piece but i didn't spot a single bubble or lost detail in my first look.

I placed an order not to long ago, and got it quickly.

I'm still waiting on an order I made when they announced the Dread Squad was going OOP. Admittedly I ordered a pretty good amount of other stuff too, but I think there's still some delays going on.

That's good to hear. With all the reports of supply chain issues (admittedly for slow boat shipping which this wouldn't be) and recent USPS announced delays on top of whatever might be going on in Russia with their recent pandemic wave, I didn't want to risk it. For a couple bucks more, it ships next day and just arrives a few days later.

Sorry to hear that. From an order I did a while back that was delayed very long with many other customers, they mentioned they use different casters so there is sometimes one item that holds a bigger order. I don't know if that is the case for you or generally even now.

* 1 drop flow-aid water mixture (1:20)
* 1 drop acrylic ink

My own:
* White-primed miniature lightly pre-inked in a dark shade.
* 1 drop acrylic ink in a small pot of paint (eg. children's craft paint). Do not mix.
* Dip the brush in the ink. As you paint, you can dip into the paint to make the layer more opaque.

I`m sure you can see the difference between minis from Oathsworn and Magnetic Heroes.
When we will be doing Magnetic Heroiness, we will put the same effort and quality in them, as we did with Heroes, no compromises in quality, no mediocre minis, no "well, that`s ok". Only awesome miniatures for awesome people.

My guess is you’re using Backer Kit to manage the project, or at least someone else promoting the campaign on your behalf is.

‘Project domino’ is just an ad/tracking domain that Backer Kit looks to be using. With the sub-domain likely just being taken from the title of the project that yourself or someone else who is using Backer Kit has set up for the project.

magnetic-heroes.projectdomino71.com

Can also see that the URL mentions it’s a ‘referral’ URL, so it’s likely just a link that Backer Kit has generated to track activity that’s randomly popped up somewhere and been posted here.

Nothing to worry about.

They may or may not be back in business*, but please people who want to order or have an outstanding order, understand that given the current circumstances processing and shipping will take longer than normal. According to Artel, shipping to Russia has been suspended, but shipping FROM Russia should still be in place, all the same, please be patient and understanding.

02/03/2022UPD:
PayPal has confirmed that any restrictions on our account have nothing to do with current events. This is just a routine check and in 5 days max payments via PayPal will be available again (in fact, it’s only 4 days now). If you want to place an order, you can just wait a little or email us at info@artelw.com and we’ll find a way to issue an invoice. All the earlier orders are being processed and shipped as usual.

They posted another update. The initial interruption of Paypal service may have been routine, but now Paypal has ceased operations in Russia. They are looking at other payment options and have stated that shipments from Russia are still possible.

Shipping from Russia is still possible, but for how long? With both airspace and ports closed, soon shipping mail by truck will be the only option and good luck with that continuing for long given the politicians in Baltic states/Poland.

I actually considered making order with Artel to give them some support but with both payment and shipping being really uncertain (not to mention the possibility of some idiot in customs or post 'accidentally' stepping on package) I'll wait till situation clears a bit

Artel is located near St Petersburg based on the return address on the packages I have received, so I'm hoping Russia Post can get mail out overland through Finland. I certainly hope no one vandalizes any packages.

Waiting for things to settle down is an option, but I think this is going to last a very long time.
