Reaper Bones 3: Post-Kickstarter Discussion

Recommended Posts

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

I am so bummed I got back into the hobby a day late. I completely missed the deadline for the Bones 3. Ugh!

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.

      Project description:
       
      About
       Hello Again Kickstarter backers new and loyal, longtime supporters and fans of Red Box games! We have returned again to kickstarter in the hopes to fund our newest selection of fantasy norse figures that we call the Njorn. 
        Our intention is to fund the production of a new set of heroes and their faithful follower rank and file troops. We also intend to fund the set up of our in house production capacity! This means buying a spin caster, a smelter, all the various periphery of safe casting, metal shelves to hold molds ( LOTS of molds ) having our molds shipped to us from the various contractors we currently partner with, and raw metal to do the casting with. Being set up for in house production will allow us to reinvest in the various aspects that will make your experience with Red Box Games more efficient and better presented, as well as allow us to manage our working capital MUCH more efficiently.
        We currently reinvest a disproportionate amount of our profits into maintaining reasonable stock levels across the entire breadth of the red box games line. This is a HUGE investment that grows every time we add new products to the line. It also means we have to rely on kickstarters much more because we simply cannot afford to just put new items in to the store without knowing that the funds are already there to pay for the production and stocking of said items.

        Once set up for casting we will be able to keep the funds of the business' success where it belongs, in the future of the business. It also has the added advantage of allowing us to afford lower prices across the board and able to take chances on items which are too risky to produce through out sourcing such as larger monsters and cavalry and Rank and File sets appropriately priced for army building. 

        To insure that the high level of quality you have come to expect from Red Box Games is faithfully maintained, I will be training in casting with a VERY talented and experienced mold maker and caster. I wont be handling the entire burden of casting right away so there is no need to worry that this development will slow down delivery of the Kickstarter or the regular course of business for RBG.

        My molds will continue to be made by one of the industry's best studios as well so there is no need to worry that the burden will overwhelm me or that the overall quality of the Red Box Games product will suffer.

        I cannot do any of this without your help so please consider backing this kickstarter! You will get some really cool stuff for a GREAT price in a reasonable amount of time and I will FINALLY be able to set up for my own production and make some real progress in this industry!

        AAAaaannndddd without further Adieu...... ON TO THE MINIATURES!!!
       We intend to fund as many figures as this kickstarter will allow and at the outset of the campaign we have 19 figures ready to go with a few slight details needing to be added before they are ready for production and I still have several more underway which will be shown as they are completed and added to the campaign as the funding allows.

      Chibis are super deformed, yet adorable characters that have lately have made a splash in the boardgaming and miniature community with games such as Super Dungeon Explore, Arcadia Quest, Ninja All-Stars and many others. They're also featured in collectible figurines and in other geeky paraphernalia.
      This is the EIGHTH Chibi KickStarter run by Impact! Miniatures and Impact! is partnering with Chibi Capsule and Märchen to bring you some incredible, new Magical Girl chibi miniatures along with monsters for them to combat!
      The funding goal will pay for the sculpting & 3-D printing of the miniatures. And for some of them: The metal masters and resin production molds needed to create mass production of the miniatures.
      The Miniatures  
      ALL miniatures in this KickStarter are provided unpainted. Unless otherwise stated after the name of the miniature, all miniatures offered with this KickStarter will be high quality 3-D prints done on a top end 25 to 50 micron printer (you should not see print lines after priming and paint).   As stretch goals are reached we will unlock additional sculpts.  Stretch Goal may also pay for metal mastering and rubber molds for mass production spincast resin models which will allow the project to offer some of the Magical Girls at lower costs to our backers.  The miniatures will require light clean up, being primed before painted and might need some assembly (although we will do our best to keep the figures with as few pieces as possible).  
      You can use your reward dollars to get any of the miniatures in the listing below.
      Meet the girls!

      About
      Over a year ago we started looking at beginning a High-Seas Adventure D&D campaign. However, we wanted to kick it up a notch (or five).
       
      So, we began looking for a great set of 3d Dungeon tiles to help bring the adventures to life for our players. We wanted something that was customizable, beautiful to look at, and was playable terrain. We also didn't want to spend $100 per ship. We realized that customizable didn’t really exist- we had to *choose* if we wanted beauty, or a slim amount of customization. Not to mention that the costs were extreme per ship.. We couldn’t put together a fleet of different ships if we wanted to without breaking the bank.
      Being an Indy designer- Chris decided to start working on something better, and finally- after seeing friends and family reactions to the initial prototype- ShipWorks began becoming a reality.
      Shipworks is modular. What this means is that from the hull to the masts and everywhere in between- you have the freedom to design and print the sailing ship that you want. Not just another generic template, but your minds eye brought to life.
      The ships seen table time ;-)  
      Details and customization is also inside.. ShipWorks is also fully usable terrain- to scale with miniatures common to some of the oldest and greatest table top roleplaying games. Your miniatures can traverse the rigging shrouds and masts, climb ladders and stairs, and explore above or even below decks.
       
      Captain checking the rigging as a swab runs up to the wheel  
      Even our yard-arms are functional terrain- 25mm miniatures bases slide in with ease, and stay there- even when turned upside down!
       
      Upside down can be right side up- depending on perspective.  
      With ShipWorks you get to choose:
      The length of your ship.
      Adjust the width of the ship.
      Your prows appearance, and even the figurehead that adorns it!
      Add more (or less) masts and their length! No messy shaping of wood dowels (unless you’re into that). Add a crows nest or viewing platform.
      A host of customizations to change your hull. From the number of weapons ports to fight off enemies, to creature comforts like windows for passenger cabins. Even sleek flat hull panels for showing off your more merchant elite!
      How you want your sails, from classic square to sharp looking lateen triangles.  If you change your mind- change them on the fly! 
      Your stern-castle and fore-castle (or have neither Captain!)
