PAL: Cloaker Miniatures Supply

Postby EX-F » Wed May 17, 2017 9:45 am

EOE Orbis (AKA Black Tree Design) have the original cloaker (yes THAT one) up for sale in their "clearance" section at a measly £2.44 for the next couple of days. Some of us in the shed thought it might be fun to do a PAL specifically for this miniature considering its history.

The one down side is that P&P comes to more than the miniature itself so I am volunteering my services for distribution. Sign up below and I will place an order for your very own cloaker on Friday morning (UK Time). Once they arrive I will PM you for payment for the miniature and postage to anywhere in the world at cost.

Or alternatively just buy your own here:-

I've placed the order and even got a couple of spare in case we have any latecomers wanting to join in.

Edit: I'm now down to 1 spare cloaker ... get them whilst they're hot!

The cloakers are here! I still have one spare - yours for the princely sum of £2.44 + P&P. Go on, you know you want to.

I have so many regrets... Especially Fonz raising the suggestion that the sudden spike in orders may have given the mini a stay of execution... :loopy:

Edited the title and made it sticky. Official and Unofficial are meaningless classifications in the land of the platypus! :) This has interest and motivation, so its a PAL!

Nice one Jez :beer:

Nice! I hadn't considered that as an option. Mine is attached to its base and waiting for me to prime it.

When it was released, it was viewed as so dire on Frothers, that "cloaker" became shorthand for a really poor mini. No mistake, this was probably the crudest thing I've painted. Glad you like it though! :D
