When can I expect my first shipment of SWAG for signing up?
You will get your rewards for becoming a supporter the same month after signing up for support. Remember even though you get billed immediately for your support, we ship towards the end of the month for everyone as a whole.

PLEASE NOTE: Patreon will debit you for your next month of support starting on the FIRST OF EACH MONTH! So in some cases, you will get two charges on your account before you get your first box of swag from us. Do not be alarmed, you will get a second swag shipment towards the end of the next month shipped out to you as well!

I don't play Warhammer, what else can I get?
We now feature Infinity, Warmachine, Hordes, X-Wing, Armada or Runewars swag for all miniature crates here along with all the normal Spikey Bits swag and coupons that everyone else does.

If you want a certain brand or type of minis like X-Wing, Privateer Press, Infinity, or Armada, just send us a message back when you register to let us know, and we’ll make it happen for you.
  • Privateer Press (Warmachine or Hordes, select a faction)
  • Infinity (Select a faction).
  • Fantasy Flight Games: Runewars, Star Wars (X-Wing and/or Armada by faction, also includes playmats and game aides from time to time)



When will I get billed for my support?

Patreon charges supporter's cards starting on the 1st of the month through the 5th of each month. If your support is declined, do not fret - it will charge you once you update your payment info from that decline. Easy Peasey.

Do you ship out swag internationally?
Yes, we sure do, we've become exceedingly efficient in shipping internationally.

There is no shipping "upcharge" for being international. Everyone receives 85% of their support level each month after Patreon and shipping fees are taken out!.

We will also mark your package as a "Gift" for customs declarations as support falls under that category!

Note about VAT & Fees - rewards are technically gifts, that's how we will mark shipments overseas! Also, we take 20% out of your support to pay Patreon's fees and cover the costs of shipping your items to you, which across the board is only about $6-11 for most folks pledging $60 a month or less.

If I am a current supporter can I just cancel and resign up to get the "new swag" that you are giving away?
We prefer you did not, no. However, most current supporters will get some of the "new swag" of the month back in their shipments that month regardless, as long as you're pledging $60 a month or more. Just message us if something shiny has caught your eye and we'll see what we can do.

Can I cancel my support anytime?
Of course. If you do decide to cancel, please forward us your final receipt email from Patreon when you get it to support AT spikeybits.com (the one titled: Thank you for supporting Rob Baer on Patreon!) and we'll get your shipment out with the rest of the swag we ship to supporters at the end of the month.
Please also include your final name in the email if it is not apparent from your email profile as well too!

How do I ensure I get a box of free swag EVERY month?
Currently, if you pledge the $60 a month support level, you will get a box of swag from us each month after your initial shipment.  Keep in mind that while the $30 level is great for folks on a budget, you will only get a swag shipment in the mail Four times a year (quarterly)! 

We may in the future change it up a bit, but for now, that is the most cost-effective way for us to get something to everyone who wants to help support us each month.

Can I get my support refunded?
Generally, we do not refund support because of the way Patreon's interface requires us to click on each video post and scroll (not search) through every pledge and click refund individually.

If you do need a refund for you support pledge please message us and we'll see what we can do if there are extenuating circumstances involved that are not covered by the FAQ. But please be aware it is something that can take a week complete at the very least if it is warranted.

We apologize but we are unable to refund supporters for anything that has already been shipped out.

Be sure to check out our Patreon page/emails for updates, and new video features every few days!

Thanks again for all your support!

**Remember we take out 20% for shipping and Patreon's fee for each shipment as well. Bits are when available, we don't have leftover parts every month, sorry. All prices are based on advertised retail prices, we do not take into account any secondary sellers like eBay, or Amazon.

* 40k squads (Intercessor, Hellblaster, Inceptor Squad or Nurgle Plague Marines, Pox Walkers Foetid Bloat Drone squads ) or Characters (Primaris Lieutenants, Ancient, Captain in Gravis Armor, or Nurgle Lord of Contagion, Noxious Blightbringer, Malignant Plaguecaster) from the Dark Imperium box. Age of Sigmar squads (Evocators, Castigators, Sequistors, Celstar Ballista), characters (Lord Arcanum on Gryph Charger, Knight Incantor) or Nighthaunts squads( Grimghast Reapers, Glaivewraith Stalkers, and Chainrasps x10), characters ( Spirit Torment, Guardian of souls, Lord Executioner, Knight of Shrouds on Etherial Steed).

As a supporter, you will get VIP access, and commercial-free desktop viewing of multiple video features from our channel, in some cases weeks ahead of everyone else.


All videos on the desktop site are Ad-free, however, Patreon blocks Vimeo on their app, so we now provide an ad-free download link for you to watch and archive our videos from whatever device you want.

  • Wednesday: Hobby Tutorial & Exclusive VIP Quick Reference Guide

As you can imagine I accumulate a ton of stuff every month doing unboxings, product reviews, and tutorials. Now is YOUR chance to get in on all the swag we feature in our videos here at Spikey Bits, by being a gracious supporter!


Look at it this way, you tip your barista or waiter and all they do is bring your food. Help us enrich your hobby life, stay ad-free on YouTube and bring hobby back - PLEASE, support us today!

Together we can all help bring the hobby back! -Rob


When can I expect my first shipment of SWAG for signing up?
You will get your rewards for becoming a supporter the same month after signing up for support. Remember even though you get billed immediately for your support, we ship towards the end of the month for everyone as a whole.

PLEASE NOTE: Patreon will debit you for your next month of support starting on the FIRST OF EACH MONTH! So in some cases, you will get two charges on your account before you get your first box of swag from us. Do not be alarmed, you will get a second swag shipment towards the end of the next month shipped out to you as well!

I don't play Warhammer, what else can I get?
We now feature Infinity, Warmachine, Hordes, X-Wing, Armada or Runewars swag for all miniature crates here along with all the normal Spikey Bits swag and coupons that everyone else does.

If you want a certain brand or type of minis like X-Wing, Privateer Press, Infinity, or Armada, just send us a message back when you register to let us know, and we’ll make it happen for you.
  • Privateer Press (Warmachine or Hordes, select a faction)
  • Infinity (Select a faction).
  • Fantasy Flight Games: Runewars, Star Wars (X-Wing and/or Armada by faction, also includes playmats and game aides from time to time)



When will I get billed for my support?

Patreon charges supporter's cards starting on the 1st of the month through the 5th of each month. If your support is declined, do not fret - it will charge you once you update your payment info from that decline. Easy Peasey.

Do you ship out swag internationally?
Yes, we sure do, we've become exceedingly efficient in shipping internationally.

There is no shipping "upcharge" for being international. Everyone receives 85% of their support level each month after Patreon and shipping fees are taken out!.

We will also mark your package as a "Gift" for customs declarations as support falls under that category!

Note about VAT & Fees - rewards are technically gifts, that's how we will mark shipments overseas! Also, we take 20% out of your support to pay Patreon's fees and cover the costs of shipping your items to you, which across the board is only about $6-11 for most folks pledging $60 a month or less.

If I am a current supporter can I just cancel and resign up to get the "new swag" that you are giving away?
We prefer you did not, no. However, most current supporters will get some of the "new swag" of the month back in their shipments that month regardless, as long as you're pledging $60 a month or more. Just message us if something shiny has caught your eye and we'll see what we can do.

Can I cancel my support anytime?
Of course. If you do decide to cancel, please forward us your final receipt email from Patreon when you get it to support AT spikeybits.com (the one titled: Thank you for supporting Rob Baer on Patreon!) and we'll get your shipment out with the rest of the swag we ship to supporters at the end of the month.
Please also include your final name in the email if it is not apparent from your email profile as well too!

How do I ensure I get a box of free swag EVERY month?
Currently, if you pledge the $60 a month support level, you will get a box of swag from us each month after your initial shipment.  Keep in mind that while the $30 level is great for folks on a budget, you will only get a swag shipment in the mail Four times a year (quarterly)! 

We may in the future change it up a bit, but for now, that is the most cost-effective way for us to get something to everyone who wants to help support us each month.

Can I get my support refunded?
Generally, we do not refund support because of the way Patreon's interface requires us to click on each video post and scroll (not search) through every pledge and click refund individually.

If you do need a refund for you support pledge please message us and we'll see what we can do if there are extenuating circumstances involved that are not covered by the FAQ. But please be aware it is something that can take a week complete at the very least if it is warranted.

We apologize but we are unable to refund supporters for anything that has already been shipped out.

Be sure to check out our Patreon page/emails for updates, and new video features every few days!

Thanks again for all your support!

**Remember we take out 20% for shipping and Patreon's fee for each shipment as well. Bits are when available, we don't have leftover parts every month, sorry. All prices are based on advertised retail prices, we do not take into account any secondary sellers like eBay, or Amazon.

* 40k squads (Intercessor, Hellblaster, Inceptor Squad or Nurgle Plague Marines, Pox Walkers Foetid Bloat Drone squads ) or Characters (Primaris Lieutenants, Ancient, Captain in Gravis Armor, or Nurgle Lord of Contagion, Noxious Blightbringer, Malignant Plaguecaster) from the Dark Imperium box. Age of Sigmar squads (Evocators, Castigators, Sequistors, Celstar Ballista), characters (Lord Arcanum on Gryph Charger, Knight Incantor) or Nighthaunts squads( Grimghast Reapers, Glaivewraith Stalkers, and Chainrasps x10), characters ( Spirit Torment, Guardian of souls, Lord Executioner, Knight of Shrouds on Etherial Steed).
