While that's going on, Maelstrom's Edge hasn't been forgotten. The next few releases are currently with the painter getting some colour in their lives. We're looking forward to getting these out to you. While you're waiting, here's a teaser of some things to come for the Broken!

It looks like a great product, but from what I can tell it's £2 per pot you want to store. With MDF alternatives you're looking at roughly £0.40 per pot (TT combat). You have to be really really short on space to consider this. The argument that you need to buy different racks for different size pots isn't great when you can duplicate your storage 5 times with alternatives.

Would love to have something like this, but it needs to at least halve in price to be considered, and probably drop even more to be competitive...

(It's not obvious how many pots each pledge stores, so I could be missing something)

SO, a day and a half in, and we're 52% funded, which is awesome!

If you're on the fence about this one, or waiting for retail, it's possibly worth considering that the whole thing becomes much better value if we can push it through the first couple of stretch goals... so dive in!

You can also pick up some Maelstrom's Edge terrain sprues at a discount as an add-on...

The greatest strength of the StackaRack design over other paint racks is its ability to fit into whatever space you have. If you have the space in your work area to dedicate to racking 500 pots of paint right there close at hand, StackaRack has you covered. (And let's face it, who doesn't love to see a wall of perfectly organised paint?)



But even (maybe even especially!) if you don't have much space, being able to configure the rack to suit yourself means that you can make the best use of that space. For example, if you're the kind of painter who tends to work on a single project at a time, rather than using up a whole lot of desk space for paints that you're not using right now, you can use StackaRack to build some storage just the right size to hold the paints that you are actively using right now.











The rest of the horde can be safely packed away, or held in a larger rack somewhere more suitable, where you don't have that pot of fluorescent orange staring at you accusingly the whole time you work ("Why did you buy me all those years ago, just to leave me here, still unopened? Why? Whyyyyy???")



Ahem.



This can also be a handy way to ease into your storage. Don't have the funds to rack all of your paint right now? Just grab enough StackaRack sprues to hold the paint for a single project, and then add to it as you go!
