Reaper Bones 3: Post-Kickstarter Discussion

6375 posts in this topic

Sorry to bother you, and it might be too early to ask, but is there any chance the non-core sets will be broken into smaller groups for purchase/add ons?  I'm asking because I'd love to get the Behir and brain in a jar on legs and a few others. :)

 

Otherwise Reaper is the gold standard for me regarding miniautres kickstarters, especially with after KS updates.  You guys rock!

At this time we are not anticipating doing so, but we are exploring the possibility and complexity of such options and might have a different answer for you by the time the Pledge Manager "Activates" (begins being able to take additional funds).

Why wasn't the pumpkin cart in the KS? :down: I was almost as excited for the pumpkin cart as I was for Tia... five-headed dragon. :unsure:

Also... What happened to the Bonesylvainians? Last year we were told they were going to be released in Bones (totally makes sense, yo), so I refrained from buying all for them. I just got Lon (Chaney) and Chibi Sophie. Now I has a sad that they weren't in the KS ::(:

We previewed items that might have been included, never guaranteed to be included.  We still have plans and have not discarded these items to obscurity.

Hey folks!

Has everyone's heart rate returned to normal yet? 8)

 

This is the first time I have been involved in a kickstarter, I went in with my DM to the tune of $200...., so I would like to ask some questions, if I may:

 

 I didn't know WTH a kickstarter was until 7/20, when I went to the site because of a slip. I am an old school painter, and metal is my preferred material to paint. The 1 Bones figure that I have seen picked up in person so totally under whelmed me, that I thought that I would never buy them even if they are inexpensive. Then I saw DRAGONS for $15 and $10, and started to salivate. Then more and more neat stuff and...

 

Anyway, we are in wave 5, and I am wondering what the projected shipping dates are. I think I saw October? 2016?

 

While following the threads, lots and lots of peeps were oohing and aahing about Ma'aldrakar at the $60 mark.

Who actually bought in? Anyone get 2? 8) (wife is getting mine for xmas)

 

The Stoneskull expansion: I bought into that for some of the figures, but I am wondering, is there a campaign module to go with that stuff? I understand that some of the previous 'themed' add ons were done that way...

 

And to the Reaper folks, do things originally Bones move to metal? I see that many metal minis have gone to bones...

 

I am sure I will think of more, and anyone else, feel free to chime in!

 

George

 

ps, Mods I hope I put this in the right place, near the locked ks threads....

 

  • Projected Shipping is September 2016 for my wave 3, so you are probably right in remembering the October for your wave 5 shipping estimate, but with something THIS big, they may get delayed by production issues or shipping issues to US like the last few were. I always add on at least 3 months to all kickstarters as a rule of thumb. They try to get things out on time, but the bigger ones always run into some kind of delay in my experience.

     

  • Ma'al - I didn't go in on it personally, there are threads that cover him actually and a lot of people are picking one up or 2 or 3. At the $60 kickstarter price point he is most likely discounted by 50-55%. Bryan stated in one of the threads that the retail price of him will be $120+ (depending on how many are demanded by this kickstarter).

     

  • Stoneskull Expansion - No "campaign" modules unless people do their own homebrew stuff. Reaper is a miniatures company they have the "Warlord Game," but that hasn't been supported in a long time.

     

  • Bones to metal - sometimes they do if they are a popular figure in bones and there's enough demand, most of these are going from metal to bones to increase their bones line. I believe they stated even with the extreme popularity of bones that their metal line does 60% of their sales still.

It's a little intimidating when you think that Dragons Don't Share was $35 and Ma'aldrakar is $60.  I mean, that's a loooooot of plastic!! 

 

I had originally toyed with getting 2, but at $60 each, I'm not feeling it at the moment.

I am in the same boat. I wonder if months of a pledge manager will change my mind...

If it helps in the past Reaper has let people have access at a bit higher cost, but still able to make the orders as well. You just don't get to help unlock anything as it is finished. I could be wrong on my recall though

This has historically been available, and while I don't have a handy quote, I could have sworn I have seen both ReaperBryan and LadyStorm post that this option would be available. 

 

IIRC the mark-up was 25-50% depending on the item, but was still a good deal for most things.

The ability to join post-project will be available after we transition the Pledge Manager over when Kickstarter releases information to us in 2-3 weeks at the earliest. Watch the updates for the announcement that this has happened.

My wife told me she wanted me to pledge for 2 of the five headed dragon before the campaign started. So both of us could enjoy painting our own. But when the reveal happened I only went in for 1. As much as I want to humor her indulgence on a second, I have to have some semblance of reason. Just one is going to eat a very large amount of display space, two would... well I just don't have the space for 2. I may change my mind later. We shall see. And although the figure may never get game use more than a hand full of times, rule of cool wins over practicality sometimes. And it is truly a Julie Guthrie Magnum Opous that must be honored. When I get mine; RCon, artists table, and sharpie will have to meet. If ever there was a fig that needs a signature in my collection, 5 headed dragon is it.

      About this project
        Along the Great Northern Trade Route that leads to the town of Midlam, merchants come from distant lands to buy and sell their wares.  
      One such trader is the Great Sultan, who has brought along his entourage of advisers, entertainers and of course, his guards.  Also, arriving close behind the Sultan are rumours of strange and exotic wizards, and something more sinister.  
      Could it be, that he hopes to escape the curse of the Undead Pharaoh, who's tomb he ordered looted for it's fantastic treasures?
      Whatever the truth of the matter, the High Wizard of Midlam has chosen to investigate these rumours...
      Midlam Miniatures are pleased to present a collection of six 28mm scale mages & priests from the distant desert lands, for all of your Fantasy Egyptian, Pulp and Arabian Nights games.
      The Undead Pharaoh  
      The High Priest  
      The Priest  
      The Priestess  
      The Sorceress  
      The Princess This is our fourth Kickstarter, and we are using it to help develop and extend our existing range of 'Arabian Nights' miniatures.
      We have also included an option to purchase 'An audience with the Great Sultan' alongside the six mages and priests.  The set includes twelve miniatures: The Sultan on rug, two guards, female guard with spear, assassin, servant with fan, panther, caravan guard, adviser, snake charmer, rug merchant and sword swallower.
      An Audience with the Great Sultan Getting this project funded will not only help us get these figures made, but will also help us plan and create future ranges and expansions. 
      Our three previous Kickstarters, Wizard Apprentices, Wizard Halflings and Cultists of the Kraken Lord all successfully funded and delivered on schedule.
      We are also happy to receive suggestions on what to make next!
      PLEASE NOTE: The miniatures are cast in a high quality pewter, with a high Tin content, but may contain a small quantity of lead.   We unfortunately cannot guarantee lead free models.
      They are not toys, and are not suitable for children. 
      We regrettably do not have the ability to produce resin miniatures. 
      All miniatures are supplied unpainted.
      All images and miniatures are ©2017 Midlam Miniatures.

      This is an informational only thread. Chatter will be culled. 
      US Zone Shipping Complete! Questions, Help, Europe and Pacific Status!
      0 Comments      Like     Like the title says, we're done shipping US Zone rewards! (well, there's a few that had problems that needed resolving, but less than a dozen out of 10,000). Now that US Zone fulfillment is concluded, it’s important for us to address a few things.
      First and foremost, THANK YOU from all of us at Reaper for your patience while we worked through the delays and tribulations of fulfillment. We know that it wasn’t always easy, and sometimes there was a great deal of frustration, but we made it! We truly could not have accomplished all of this without your support.
      Pacific Zone and Europe Zone Fulfillment Status and Timelines
      Before we pulled ANY US Zone orders, we made sure that all Pacific Zone and Europe Zone rewards were loaded onto containers to ship to their respective hubs. We have 2 containers heading for ports in the UK and Australia. We cannot predict with certainty how long these will take to clear their respective Customs centers, so it is difficult to give a precise timeline. 
       Aetherworks of Sydney, Australia will be handling our to the Pacific Zone, and they are currently expecting to be able to begin shipping sometime in July. 
       RHQ Zombie Co Ltd of Nottingham, UK will be handling our to the Europe Zone and they are also expecting to be able to begin shipping sometime in July.
      In both cases, you will be notified via email by the shipper with a tracking number. We will keep you informed of any changes.
      And now, we're going to talk about the most common questions and problems you've been emailing us about, and how to help us help you out.
      My Shipment was Lost or Stolen 
      Your tracking information says that the package was delivered, but you do not have it. 
      You must open a claim (sometimes called a Trace Process) with the carrier for a stolen or mis-delivered package. Once you have done so, contact us at help@reapermini.com with your order number , name, tracking number as shown on your pledge manager, and any claim # or confirmation # provided, and we will follow up. 
       You can Open such a claim at the link below - simply provide the information requested and follow all necessary steps. https://wwwapps.ups.com/webClaims/create?loc=en_US&report_type=1 
      If it becomes necessary to send a second shipment, we may request a new delivery address for your replacement shipment, to help ensure proper delivery.
      I have no Shipping/Tracking e-mail
      You can find your tracking number on the Pledge Manager. Simply log in, and it will be in the right hand column above your itemized list of rewards. If no tracking number shows up, please contact us at help@reapermini.com and we will try to get it sorted out as fast as we can. 
       Be sure to include: 
      Your Order Number as shown in the Pledge Manager (Not your backer number)  Your full name as shown in the Pledge Manager  Your shipping address as shown in the Pledge Manager  Do not include any attachments or screenshots unless we ask for them. Attachments are incredibly insecure, and we do not open attachments from untrusted and unknown sources. Emails with unsolicited attachments will be deleted without being read. 
      My Tracking Information has stopped Updating
       Your package has been sitting in Chicago, IL for days/weeks with a status of "Package departed international carrier facility" or similar. (This is common for International Backers.)
       Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of the "status" of your package, and it is especially well known that some National Postal Systems do not integrate their data well with the US Post. So for some customers Tracking will end once it leaves the US (or reaches Chicago), and you may not even receive an update that it has arrived in your country. The notice you have "Departed for International Carrier Facility" means it has been handed over to your National Postal Service, (or at least was loaded on a plane to go to your country's post) and in many cases, tracking simply stops there. You may ask of your National Post if they can locate the parcel for you, but not all tracking numbers provided by the US Postal System are considered valid numbers by all international carriers. 
      Be aware that we have access to the same data that you do, and as we no longer have the packages we have no more data than you have.
      I Ordered the Fat Dragon PDFs and there are none in my box
       We had a set of 4 FREE downloadable Dungeon Tile PDFs, provided by Fat Dragon Games, available through the Pledge Manager. To receive these items, backers needed to click the download links in the descriptions within the Pledge Manager. We also made these links available in Update #74 On June 10, 2016. 
       EZ Tiles: Dungeons 1 FREE PDF http://www.rpgnow.com/browse.php?discount=909bd1b4f9&affiliate_id=25275
       EZ Tiles: Village Streets 1 FREE PDF http://www.rpgnow.com/browse.php?discount=909c55bc4b&affiliate_id=25275
       EZ Tiles: Wilderness Ruins FREE PDF http://www.rpgnow.com/browse.php?discount=909d174ff1&affiliate_id=25275
       Ravenfell Core Set FREE PDF  http://www.rpgnow.com/browse.php?discount=909b00ac28&affiliate_id=25275
      These links will not be shared again.
      My Pledge Level was called “Core Set Wave #” But I did not receive a Core Set
      In almost every case, this is because in the Pledge Manager, you selected rewards that spent your pledged amount, but did not select a Core Set among your rewards. We are not responsible for shipping items that you did not order. This is a common enough problem that in the Project FAQ we mention that you had to select a Core Set to receive one.
      There is a Missing Part From my Order OR a Missing "Bit" from a Model
      If you are missing one or more models, or one or more parts from a model (whether an entire model or simply an arm/head/weapon/etc.) please contact us to receive a replacement. We will not "replace" parts which are not listed on your Invoice or were not locked in on your Pledge Manager. 
       Send your email to help@reapermini.com. Be sure to include: 
      Your Order Number as shown in the Pledge Manager (Not your backer number)  Your full name as shown in the Pledge Manager  Your shipping address as shown in the Pledge Manager  The part number of the item in question as shown on the large graphics of the Home Page of the Kickstarter Project.   A brief description of the problem - “Model xxx is missing her left wing”, “model is damaged or mis-cast”, etc.  Please remember to refer to the model’s left and right sides as if you were the model in question. This is the most common mistake of this kind, misidentifying the left and right sides. Please help us to get the correct parts to you. 
      Please DO NOT include screenshots or attachments of photographs of the miniatures or boxes when you email us unless we request it. Attachments are incredibly insecure, and we do not open attachments from untrusted and unknown sources. Emails with unsolicited attachments will be deleted without being read.
      Likewise, emails that are exasperatingly long and complex, or which contain vulgar and abusive language will be moved to the end of the queue, and in extreme cases will be deleted without resolution. If we cannot determine your problem and the appropriate resolution quickly, we will not take hours to do so, nor will we wade through paragraphs of profanity and insults to our heritage to help you. Please send only one email of this kind. Sending a new email each day with “Oh I just noticed this” will not help. If you have already sent an email, reply once to the first email with the required information.
      We will not begin the replacement process for missing or damaged items for several weeks. It will take us some time to reset and be able to process these emails.
      The Address My Rewards Were Shipped to is Incorrect
      Sadly the package has already been shipped. We are unable to change the address in transit. If your package shipped via UPS, you might be able to make a MyUPS account and update the address. If the package is returned to us and we must reship, you will have to pay for the second shipment as well as provide a new address
      Customs wants a printed Invoice
      You can print your invoice from the Pledge Manager, under Completed Orders. This is significantly faster than waiting for us to mail you a printout of that same page.
      Customs is billing me for import fees/duties/VAT
      While the majority of Canadian, EU, and AU backers are being shipped with methods that mean this will not be a problem, a small number of shipments may still come with such fees due. This was discussed in our Project FAQ you are responsible for any such fees.
      My Pledge Manager shows no Orders, or I have no Pledge Manager Account
      A created and complete Pledge Manager account is required for us to be able to fulfill your rewards. It is required for two reasons: 
      1) It supplies us with all of your contact and shipping information and  2) It details to us your list of rewards.  If you have this problem it is because you either never created a Pledge Manager account or you never updated and completed your existing Pledge Manager account. The occurrence of either of these events has created a problem for you. So before you contact us and tell us how bad and irresponsible we are in how we conduct a Kickstarter please review the following. 
      To remind you and encourage you to complete your Pledge Manager account we have:
      Included a large graphic link to create your Pledge Manager account right after the Stretch Goal Map in the body of the Kickstarter campaign.  Included step-by-step screen shot instruction on how to setup and use the Pledge Manager in the body of the Kickstarter campaign.  The Kickstarter FAQ contained several entries of important Pledge Manager information.  Since August 2015, 19 separate Kickstarter updates requested you complete and/or update your Pledge Manager. Kickstarter is considered the official channel of all updates. Not social media or direct emails.  In June of 2016, we sent emails to everyone with an incomplete Pledge Manager account requesting that they please take the time to complete their Pledge Manager.  We kept our Pledge Manager open for 10 months and a further 9 months we helped anyone who contacted us by opening up their Pledge Manager for them so they could complete their rewards order.  We have provided a reasonable amount of time for you to complete your part of this equation. Kickstarter Terms of Use state: The creator may need to send you questions about your reward: To deliver rewards, the creator might need information from you, like your mailing address or t-shirt size. They’ll request that information after the campaign has succeeded. To receive the reward, you’ll need to provide the information in a reasonable amount of time.
      Link: https://www.kickstarter.com/terms-of-use
      So what can you do? Please contact and we will attempt to work with you to find a solution. In your initial contact, please detail your extenuating circumstances, such as active military service and deployment to an Internet-restricted region. (If at all possible please do not start your contact with us by telling us how stupid we are. Believe it or not it will help you a great deal. Just sayin')
      Anything Else
      If you have any other questions, or a problem not discussed above, please contact us at help@reapermini.com with:
      your order number as found in your pledge manager, (Not your backer number) your full name, your shipping address, the email address associated with your pledge, a brief description of your issue.  We will do everything we can to help you. It is very likely we may need additional information from you after the initial contact, but this at least helps us get started. 
      Please DO NOT include screenshots or attachments of photographs of the miniatures or boxes when you email us unless we request it. Attachments are incredibly insecure, and we do not open attachments from untrusted and unknown sources. Emails with attachments will be deleted without being read. 
      Please remember that we have received over 4,000 emails in the last 3 weeks and we are going through them as fast as we can. If you are rude or abusive in your e-mail to us, or if your email is many paragraphs in length, we will move your e-mail to the end of the queue.
      Upcoming Convention Schedule
      We will be attending Origins Game Fair June 13th through June 18th. Because we are a small company, our customer service Team is also our Convention Crew, and we will be unable to process emails until we return. 
      Thank you for everything! 
      ~Reaper
