  1. Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    They didn't, but people keep hoping. I, personally, am holding out no such hope that additional miniatures will be "unlocked" in the future. It seems like any such miniatures should already have been unlocked so that they'd be most likely to be seen and purchased by all backers. As the updates go out from the initial closing date, more and more people generally tune out of the updates, so later additions of miniatures seem like they'd be less well received due to less backers noticing them. But, one never knows.

    They've also had half a month since Reaper Bryan announced he would be leaving, and, at least according to that announcement, he hasn't left yet. He may be having to pass along or train someone else in how he does things, but putting together an update as a demonstration would be a good way to ensure the work is being done and teaching someone what the task entails. That they were waiting until Monday to even have a meeting about it, and still didn't get it out, despite knowing for ages that this was on the docket of things to be done, feels a little poorly planned. If the 12 Days event, the Stockings, the 25th Anniversary item (which is something they've been doing all year) were all things Reaper Bryan was doing instead of someone else, then there were way too many projects on only one person's shoulders. Again, stuff happens, but this all just feels really slapdash, and I really hope that things improve soon. It's not a good look for Reaper in the Bones IV community. They generated some undeserved ill will during Bones 3's long delay, and they're already getting delays and poor communication this early in the post-KS period. I expect better communication from Reaper because they've had remarkable communication in the past, and so I'm disappointed in this. Reaper Bryan apparently has some enormous shoes to fill if his impending departure in almost a month causes this severe a delay in what should have been a routine and, honestly, already planned update. They had plenty of time to put something together, and it seems like they waited until past the last minute based on lack of communication. From Dec 1st, we were told that all updates would stay on schedule. When someone asked if that included the one due that day, we got radio silence. Then on the 4th, we were told it'd go up later that day barring unforeseen events. Now it's Tuesday. Noone from Reaper has really commented in the Kickstarter itself, and we're at the point where it continues to look very bad. I'm still a backer, and it's not like I'm howling that I want my money back or something, but this is as much about communication as anything at this point. We need it to be better, and more timely in the coming months.

    I'm sure everyone's doing their best, but it feels like no one was even bothering to work on the update at all. It was supposed to be ready by Friday, and now Monday's come and gone without so much as anything beyond "it should go out today" without actually going out today. I know lots of things can go wrong, and changes in staffing can be problematic, but it makes me somewhat concerned - if this is how bad it is when Reaper Bryan is still actually working there but just on his way out, what's it going to be like when he's gone? Again, I know it's not Ladystorm's fault, but this is all so very disappointingly disorganized. It shouldn't take this much effort, and it's a bad look. Along with some of the other things that I've witnessed, I'm not getting the same positive vibe for Bones 4 that I did during Bones 2 and 3 after the campaign was over. I hope I'm wrong, and I hope this turns around quickly. Big shoes to fill indeed...

    It's just about 8 pm CST. I would certainly have expected the update by now. Folks in the KS comments section are starting to wonder whether Reaper forgot and won't get to it until Monday. I figure that's the most likely situation at this point (the Monday part, not necessarily the "forgot" part). Le sigh.

    I'd love more minotaurs that aren't just savage barbarians. I've had a minotaur monk in my campaigns in the past, and is almost impossible to find appropriate miniatures for more civilized minotaurs.

    September's almost over. Any idea when this launches?

    Bonesylvanians 1 & 2, as well as clear weapons, were all part of Update 51, "The Pledge Manager is Now accepting Selections and Funds! And New Rewards!"
  8. Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    The additional items were added in a bones 3 when the PM went live. I commented on this in the KS, and got a very terse reply not to make assumptions about how they might be adding things to this one.
  9. Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    I bought 2 Ma'als with visions of painting and selling one to recoup costs for the KS. As of yet, hundreds of people have viewed my sales, but no buyers, sadly.

    What do you mean, "you people"?
  11. Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    My mistake, then. A review of the past 6 days of comments indicates multiple instances of commenters indicating it was not the hinted at "capstone" piece, and one post from you 3 days ago that I didn't previously see confirming it was. There was a lot of misinformation and confusing regarding the capstone piece, and the reveal of Argent felt somewhat lacking in the fanfare I would have expected for such a piece, but that's likely due to the frenetic pace at the end. Glad to have this finally clarified for me.

    That, and there were statements that he wasn't considered the "capstone."
  13. Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    I'm on the fence about Not-hamut. I like the idea of a counterpoint to Tia-Not, but I'm not sure I need another super huge dragon mini.

    The cart in the Core was supposed to be in Bones 3, but they never found the opportunity to add it. I continue to be sad that they didn't add it after the fact, like they did with some other items.
