May I request a helpful repository of links to all other non-Reaper Forum discussions, so that I might try to keep up with questioners there?


I know of these:



Please help me expand this list. People have questions, and I'd like to either help, or give them their 3 options :;):

Okie dokie:


Forum Discussions






























































There are multiple threads on some of those forums, and I left off some of the more inactive forums - as it tends to be the lone voice in the forest. There is also a bit of chatter going on over at 4chan - though they make Frothers seem like well manored individuals, so I figured I would leave the link off.


Somewhat Traditional News Outlets




Tweet Stuff




Celebrity Endorsements


I'll throw this in as it is an endorsement from Monte Cook:


Might want to contact Play Unplugged regarding the Bones line. They did a review when the line was first released, and a follow up with some tidbits and such like what was done for GameHead might be in order:




Anywho - I got some more if you like...and I left out all the various blogs, not-news sites, and other stuff like that.


Regarding the spreadsheet - I'll likely update it again at the end of the campaign with where things are then. Most the information that people are interested in can be found on KickTraq (pledges/backers per day). The other stuff - how the trend line is forming up compared to the other campaigns and how this compares is less important to the Reaper campaign itself (interesting - but not important).

There doesn't seem to be a news announcement on TMP, have you considered throwing one together? There's a lot of Song of Blades and Heroes fans there, and a big grab-bag of heroes and monsters would suit them to the ground.


WhatAboutBob, could you include some explanatory notes there with the links? Some will be richer pickings than the others. Giant ITP is the home of Order of the Stick and attracts a fair amount of D&D/ Fantasy fandom, for example.

Bill is getting a little bit senile in his old age.


IIRC - in order to have him do news for your company, you have to pay him. He hasn't had a Reaper "news" story for 6 months or so since the new policy went into effect.


Regarding the links...I could, but that is largely irrelevant. While it might be relevant if you were looking for someplace to hang out - that isn't what that is about. It is mainly about getting the word out to as many eyes as possible, regardless of the primary purpose of the venue. Some are general forums, others are game related, there are some regional ones as well - though I skipped the non-English speaking boards as I wasn't too sure what Bryan would be comfortable with there. I weeded out most of the really small ones already though.


Granted - that all is really only relevant to people who post there already and to they can keep an eye on the threads and address Reaper specific questions. The original posters, and those who have a standing in the forum should go ahead and maintain the threads. No need to have an invasion of Reaper fans spamming the place.


Everyone else should hit the forums and haunts which they frequent. Post early, and post often. If you are a member of a video game forum - drop a post in the off topic section.

It's sorta relevant, when I'm trying to figure out which ones I might have a username for :)

Well, there is that then.


I pulled those out of a file I am working with - didn't bother to put the descriptions in that particular file, as for my purposes...the descriptions there are irrelevant. I have some information on certain ones in a different file, but the two files are not linked in any I would have to manually connect the URLs to the site names (which sometimes is easy...others not so much).


I think this thread would be remiss without Reaper's own information regarding the campaign though:


And possibly - for simplified postings, something like standard BBCode for the various image blocks which happen...




Which when pasted into most forums will render like so:

Back to the helpful tools: Bob's kickstarter campaign analysis:!114&app=Excel (Not sure if he'll be keeping Bones plotted up to date or not though). Another useful link is for the optional trays that fit the case option.


Bob's chart appear not to work for me. I get file not found.

I've posted it in the comments section of the KS Campaign. The Skydrive doesn't like the direct link though for some reason and prefers the tiny url version:


There was a typo in my normalizing data for the Zpocalypse line in the 4th chart (normalized pledges). I added a zero, which makes it seem to jump on one day. That has since been corrected. I'll see about loading up a newer version today - going to enjoy the break in the rain though first and do some swimming.

I figure if you just think of TMP less as a news page and more as a "Classifieds" section INSIDE a news page, all the problems go away!

      And now, for something completely different.
      Yes, yes. I know. Not miniatures. But! Shiny! Art! With.. with .. with stuff. *Sage nod*
      The book part usually gets shipped with efficiency; medals and patches and things seem to depend on the efficiency of the crafter making them, but communication is good and things generally show up. I haven't grabbed hardbacks; I've been happy with the soft covers.

      Bones 3 had a bit of an unfortunate arrival time for me, coming in the middle of an unplanned move.  It may have taken me a bit, but I'm finally getting started on some of the pieces!

      I even took them with me for some down time on our yearly beach vacation, though my set-up here is not very scenic:

      That was last week, and now they're a bit closer to completion, with some details and fixes, basing, and sealing to be done.  Some Bones 3 furniture snuck in as well:

      Hi friends:
      After hard months of working, we´ve improved the game Iron League Blacks Stadium and the art has changed. Mechs and miniatures are amazing now. The board game has a new full cooperative campaign with map, scenary and enemies generation.
      The competitive mode continues and has been improved.
      So, we also want to change the title of the game, and this is:
      In July on Kickstarter. Soon more news.

      Whilst waiting for my Bones 3 to brave the perilous journey across the sea to the EU I have decided to paint up other models from other kick staters. Not only to play with but to try and make some inroads into the "pile" of 20 models. 
      Here are three such models from a recent Kickstarter by Thunderchild Miniatures. These snails inhabited an underground world under what's left of a post apocalyptic modern world. 
      I like these models as the are very quirky and have some character.  Hopefully I can do them justice. 
      First of all they have been washed, sprayed grey and then I have given the metal areas a thinned coat of black. 


      The biggest of the three, the snail is a single casting. There is a separate throne to this model. 


      as always comment welcome.
