    LTPK - MSP HD = ?

    3 gallon batches, not 5 which give us about 750 bottles which is not a lot for the quantity of kits built in a week. Yes, they will eventually be re-released for sale with their new numbering as individuals. No information on the timeline for that.

    Reapercon 2018 Enthusiasm and Chatter

    University is labeled 380, but it is not an interstate. 35 is an interstate. Not many food choices on the other side of 35. Town Center Trail has a stop light. Heritage Trail does not. Not every food establishment is appearing on this map. The hotel has a restaurant and Cheddars is across the parking lot.

  18. Regarding the caps: In general, the original plan was: Core = white cap, white label HD = black cap, yellow label Bones = black cap, white label This gave us visually different paint line labeling The yellow labels clogged the machine and we discontinued their use and made the change to: Core = white cap, white label HD = grey cap, white label Bones = black cap, white label Now, in the meantime, we got Audrey, the automated paint pumping machine and when it is time to change caps from one color to the next, there will be some in each batch that are left over from the previous color cap. This gives us the caps not matching the plan. In other words, the Big Bosses liked the idea of the three lines being distinctly different, but reality mushes that around. Let me see if I can upload the comparison graphic because more typing than I have time for... PaintLines_Compare_flat.pdf

    Reaper Bones 4: Information Thread

    Update: July 20, 2018 As announced a few updates ago, we have extended the closing date of the Reaper Bones 4 Pledge Manager from July 31 to September 3, 2018. Yes, this means the Reaper Bones 4 Pledge Manager is still open. More details on the Reaper Bones 4 Pledge Manager later in the update. Nyarlathotep: We caught up to Kevin Williams, the sculptor of Nyarlathotep, and asked a few questions about the process of summoning, er, sculpting this Lovecraftian deity. How did Nyarlathotep come about? Kevin: We felt Nyarlathotep was an appropriate addition to compliment the short series of Mythos pieces we have produced. Izzy Callier drew up the original design some time back before Bones 4. Serious discussion over posing and design between our Art Director Ron Hawkins, Izzy and myself made this a true group effort. What was the most challenging part of sculpting Nyarlathotep? Kevin: The most challenging part was the hieroglyphics. Getting those onto the base and having them scaled right took more time than expected. What was the most satisfying part of the sculpting process? Kevin: The most satisfying part of sculpting Nyarlathotep was holding the physical object. A few parts failed the printing process and required multiple printings. I was a little surprised at the size, it ended up a little bigger than anticipated. You can find the full 3D turn around of Nyarlathotep in Update #90. Painted: We caught up to Michael Proctor, the painter of Nyarlathotep, and asked a few questions about painting Nyarly. How did you settle on this color scheme? Michael: The overall color scheme was determined by Ron. He asked for a reddish brown look that could fit into a desert style theme. So for the skin areas, I used a combination of Ruddy Leather 9109 and also mixed in the Dark Skin Triad 9755 (contains 9040-9042). I added some textures (lines and dashes) with Chestnut Gold 9073 and Palomino Gold 9074. Then for the tentacle portions, I went for dark magenta tones. Using Burgundy Wine 9025 and Old West Rose 9283. I chose the dark magenta tones to add a little contrast to the skin colors but not too much. What was the most challenging part of this model? Michael: it was a great model to paint. That Kevin Williams is a great sculptor; he uses so much crazy detail. I think I changed the spikes and teeth on the piece about three times. I wanted them to not blend in with the rest of the piece but still standout. I ended up using the Olive Skin Triad 9774 (contains 9220-9222) and it had just enough green in the mix to add a tiny bit of contrast. What did you enjoy the most? Michael: Kevin Williams is a great friend and I had the opportunity to see this model come to life in the sculpting stages. I was really impressed how Kevin was able to take the amazing 2D art from Izzy and translate it to a 3D sculpt. The fun part was that when it was done Kevin reached out to me and asked if I would paint it. It’s really great not only to paint a piece for Reaper but when the sculptor asks you if you would paint his labor of love that’s just cool. That made me want to paint the piece even more. All of the above mentioned colors are currently available in our web store at Reapermini.com. Reminders: TLDR • Once an order is locked in, we cannot make changes to that order. Substitutions and deletions are not possible; however you may order new or additional items (via a new order) through the Reaper Bones 4 Pledge Manager. • Speaking of which, the Reaper Bones 4 Pledge Manager has been extended and is scheduled to close on September 3, 2018. At 11:59 PM CST. • At this time, less than 1000 original backers have not locked in their orders. Don’t be that person who gets nothing shipped because they didn’t lock in! Reaper Pledge Manager We would like to encourage all backers to review their completed orders by following the Completed Orders link on their Bones 4 Pledge Manager. The Reaper Bones 4 Pledge Manager link is https://ks.reapermini.com/bones4 If you see at least one order under Completed Orders, then you're fine. If you don’t have this link, you still need to finalize your choices and proceed through the checkout process. Before you lock in an order, please confirm you are using the correct email address and your pledge credit is being shown. If not, follow instructions below (Login Emails). Also an important note that seems to confuse people - no pledge level automatically includes *anything*. For example: If you want a Bones 4 Core Set, then you must select it, no matter which level you pledged under. If you want to spend your pledge on other rewards and not get a Bones 4 Core Set, that's OK. But nothing will be added to your cart for you. Ever. Remember, you can lock in more than one order, so there's no penalty to locking in now - in fact, because we generate our shipping charges live from the US, UK, or AU Carrier services, waiting could raise your postal rates, causing you to owe more! Pledge Manager Login Emails We repeat this a lot, but it is literally the most common problem we see in our inboxes, so we will continue to repeat it: It is mandatory that, when you log in to the Reaper Pledge Manager, you use the same email address that you use to login to your Kickstarter account. The only way we know which pledge was yours is by matching those emails. If you log in with a different email, your pledge credit will not be applied to your order, and you will be charged higher prices for your rewards. You can resolve this in one of two ways. You could create a second login with the correct email address. Or, you could login, click on Account Details, and change your email address to the one you use on Kickstarter.com. Then log out and back in. Other Problems If you have other problems, please email us at help@reapermini.com. Be sure to specify what project you're having a problem with (this is Bones 4). That same help desk handles all customer service for all of Reaper's retail and consumer orders, as well as our previous projects, so they need your help knowing how to best help you. Please don’t include screenshots or attachments, as we have stringent security protocols which filter these out and delete the messages containing them. Convention Schedule Our next scheduled show is ReaperCon, August 30th - September 3rd! You can get your tickets now at www.reapercon.com! Update Schedule Our next August Update will be on the fourth Friday, the 24th. Thanks! ~Reaper

    Reaper Bones 4: Information Thread

    Bones 4 shipping is estimated to begin in February of 2019. We ship each wave one after the other stopping long enough to refresh supplies. Last project, we shipped all waves in 18 days. Disclaimer, the AU & UK hubs had different timing. We anticipate that we have resolved issues with the hubs and will make this a smoother ship window.

    LTPK - MSP HD = ?

    No. We will not be absorbing the rest of the HD line into the Bones line.

    LTPK - MSP HD = ?

    Nothing will happen to them. There are HD paints in the two LTP Kits and the Starter Paint set, (08906, 08907, 09970) Those colors we will continue production and absorb into the Bones Line of paint with new numbers eventually. Currently, they will be labeled with both their old and new numbers for inclusion inthe kits until we get eh print materials and everything changed over. RE: more kits: you never know what the future holds.
