Reaper Bones 3: Post-Kickstarter Discussion

Recommended Posts

Factory Shutdown is not exactly accurate.

Many facets of our routine will not change.

personnel will be shifted from certain areas to cover fulfillment and we will be working in shared space.

 

there will be no impact to availability of the Anniversary models.

they will continue to release on schedule.

 

internet order fulfillment will continue as normal.

Woot!

 

I was going to post a humorous comment on the kickstarter comments section about doing order fulfillment in reverse alphabetical order but those guys don't look to merry. The container didn't sink at sea and we are soon to get our minis and its like Reaper kicked their dog over there.

 

I, for one, need to clear a space on my painting table and finish off a bunch of half-finished minis in preparation for the new arrivals. Christmas in May or June (I hope) for me.

The comments on the update seem pretty cheerful.

In general my perspective is that the General Comment so far have been much nicer than they had been prior to the final container details being known and announced. A few negative posts today is nothing compared the storms I've waded into.

 

And let me be honest, we've failed to meet projections, and failed to meet expectations. I understand their angst and frustration, even as I recognize the causes and realities of doing business with partners overseas.

 

So I don't let it bug me.

Ermagherd. My wife will be out of town for 3 weeks in June. I anticipate a lot of painting minis and eating pizza off my chest in my future.

I was a negative nelly myself during Reaper 1 fulfillment, but my kickstarter experiences were very new that point. At this point I know that Reaper is going to fulfill the kickstarter and the Bones minis are going to be fantastic. I'm still painting Bones 2 minis and I'm really looking forward to Bones 3 especially the add-ons. I can only say that those who avoid future Bones kickstarters who like the minis are going to regret it just because of delays. The kickstarters are fantastic deals and the waiting has changed from frustrating to anticipation for me.

I wish more people saw it that way. I don't understand why people start throwing personal attacks at someone who is expressing their opinions about a product or is unhappy about a project. Products and projects aren't people. We can disagree with somebody else's point without condescension or personal attacks. Only makes things worse anyway. Although, pretty much all of us have gone-off on backers at some point. Isn't that kinda how you got your avatar? Atomic breath and all. <_<

 

Anyway, I'm thrilled with this update. Looks like somebody put in a lot of thought about how to present that wealth of information.

Agreed. although I do hope that these new ones will be a good bit firmer than the previous ones. I heard that they should be, which is pretty exciting. Other manufacturers are now using firmer PVC that holds more detail and isn't nearly as prone to bending over. Great time to be a gamer!

 

Nothing at all wrong with feeling frustrated or disappointed about late delivery. Just means you REALLY want the shiny new minis. ::D:

You should only have to go to the project page and click on the latest update.  No pages.   In fact, I'll link it for you.  Or link to the link.  You get the idea.

I got wave 3 this time, so I'll be getting mine faster than ever. Not that it's very slow once they get going. ::D:

So excited!
MY CRUSADERS ARE ALMOST HOME!!!!

In other news, storage is a real thing, and I'm going to need to ramp up my upcoming games to prove it was worth both the cost and wait.

TERRAIN AHOY

I was going to hit IKEA for some of the 'Samla' plastic bins this easter, anyway, so storage is sorted for me... 

 

I noticed one backer was yapping about 'EU Friendly' shipping. Thank goodness Reaper doesn't do that!

(Mostly it's a scam, and some day soon one of the 're-shippers' doing it will get raided and their goods impounded)

 

Another backer mentions 7 waves and 13K backers, and estimates 13 - 14 days to ship everything. 

But... I'm on Wave 10. (Post-KS participant, joined through the PM. )

 

I'll just assume that it goes out the door within a month after shipping starts, then add another month for the USPS and the Norwegian Post to mishandle it, another 2 - 3 weeks for customs to thoroughly mislay it, then hurriedly find and slap on a huge fee (in addition to VAT) for 'rent of storage space'... 

I usually take an early summer vacation... Odds are that the crate shows up about the time it begins... Now isn't THAT good timing?  ;-)

      About this project
       
       
       
      Welcome to the Infinity RPG Kickstarter, help us fund an RPG based on the massive Infinity skirmish miniatures game!

      The Infinity universe was launched by Corvus Belli as a hugely-popular tabletop skirmish game in which sci-fi themed miniatures simulated futuristic battles across the alien battlefronts of Paradiso and the internecine conflicts of the Human Sphere. Before there was a skirmish game, though, there was an RPG: Infinity started life as a homemade RPG setting for the early roleplaying adventures of Corvus Belli founders Alberto, Carlos, Fernando, and Gutier. We've been playtesting the Infinity RPG with hundreds of people for the last 9 months, working hard to recapture the excitement of those first sessions and ensure that the feel of the Infinity universe will be captured in your own campaign!
      This Kickstarter has funded the production of a beautiful full colour, hardback 368 page core rulebook for the roleplaying game. It will be sent out in PDF in December and the printed books in February 2016. We are also going to fund Faction supplements, campaign, amazing geomorphic tiles, custom dice, accessories, upgrades to increase the content in certain books and much more.

      In the twisted jungles of Paradiso, humanity fights for its survival. The fierce, alien warriors of the Combined Army have poured through the Acheron Gate, descending upon the emerald jungles of the newest colonial world in a seemingly unstoppable torrent. The bestial Morat pound the Paradiso Front, where brave men and women fight ceaselessly to maintain a desperate defensive line which the sly Shasvastii penetrate with devastating ease. In the star-swept skies above, the collected might of humanity’s armadas maintain a life-or-death blockade to cut off an endless horde of alien reinforcements. And if any of humanity’s fractious forces should falter, then all may be lost…
      But beyond that terrifying holding action, the intrigues and adventures of the Human Sphere spin on. Space pirates cruise through the shattered planetoids of Human Edge. Scientist adventurers delve the oceans of Varuna. Merchant guilds scheme amidst the scourging sands of Bourak. From Yutang, the Emperor gazes forth from an uneasy throne. Titanic war machines stride across the icy plains of Svalarheima. Byzantine hypercorps struggle for dominance amidst the chrome towers of Neoterra.
      For the last ten years, players have tested their mettle upon the battlefields of the Human Sphere in Corvus Belli’s hugely-popular Infinity skirmish game. Now you can expand your adventures, diving deep into the amazing, never-before-seen depths of the Infinity universe with the ultimate science fiction roleplaying game.

      Play with the full dynamic 2d20 game system featuring:
      Cinematic action driven by the twin engines of Heat and Momentum The triple battlefields of Warfare, Infowar, and Psywar A multifaceted Zones system which brings the game world to life All New Artwork of the Infinity universe commissioned by Modiphius and Corvus Belli Find out more about the 2d20 System further down the page Explore the definitive guide to the Infinity universe with: A complete Chronology of the Human Sphere detailing centuries of bloodshed The culture, history, and intrigue of seven powerful factions Gazetteers for all twelve planets of the Human Sphere, including beautiful, full-color maps Leap into your character by: Forging your identity with an immersive Lifepath character creation system Fighting for your faction with the fractious, innovative Wilderness of Mirrors scenario design system Facing dozens of fearsome, ready-to-play adversaries who stand between you and your destiny! A 368 page book packed with everything you need to roleplay in the Human Sphere and beyond!
      Here are our popular Pledge Levels, we'll be adding more as they are unlocked. Note: There will be more Bostria Art Pledges for the Core and Supplements unlocked, we'll send an update before they are so you have a chance to grab one
