Now, on to the "insane deal" portion. There are only 5 days left on the Reaper kickstart. Currently, the $100 pledge level ("Vampire" level) gets you this:
That's about $.72 per mini for what's shown. Sure a single rat at that price isn't fantastic, but getting Ape-X (normally $13) and a Marilith ($11.50) in that deal more than makes up for a couple rats. Plus, everyone gets more as the pledged total increases, so get in now and help grow it for everyone.
Oh, and this level unlocks the ability to purchase sooooo much more. Want dragons for $10-15 each? Yeah, that cheap. Check this out.
