Reaper Bones 3: Post-Kickstarter Discussion

Recommended Posts

Well, my wife mostly isn't allowed to leave the house for at least another month or so, so if you're near Denver and are worried about that, send it my way. :)

Speculation: All hands on deck to assemble pledges and prep for shipping. This means almost everything else is getting ignored except for web orders and bill paying.

 

Speculation: Labels have been prepared, and the software sends out an automatic update. This does not mean items have been picked up for distribution yet.

 

On Facebook we've seen pictures of prepared pallets of packages ready for plastic wrapping prior to pickup by the package delivery company of choice. They've not yet gone out.

 

Patience.

 

Thus ends my alliteration.

Well, do you mind waiting until my wife's doctors say I can leave her alone for more than an hour or so?  Probably next April, maybe next Summer.

....Oh gosh, I just realized I need to get probably two more tool boxes to store all my new Bones in. This is going to throw off my whole sorting system! D: /drama

 

Huzzah!

It's already past the point where I needed a new ROOM to store my minis :lol:. Seriously, a few years ago I turned the smallest bedroom into a craft room for my wife and I. Even with all the extra dedicated space, I don't know where Bones 3 is going to go. Do I *really* need an office…?

Would you have them all painted by then??  It's only 34 lbs, that shouldn't take too long.....

I have Phoenix Comicon next weekend and I am wave 1. I am betting things arrive during the Con. I doubt could have it delivered to the hotel...

I have often been saddened by the fact I was unable to participate in this KS campaign. But I also realized the other day that, even if I had, I already have more minis to paint than I know what to do with.  I have at least 35 minis that I purchased in the last year, that sit unopened. At the speed I paint, and factoring in a few more purchases, I will be finished with the ones I have around the time Bones IV releases...and I mean for shipment like 3 currently is.

Ah, to be new to it all and think that 35 minis is a lot. I've been collecting for 30 years and the unpainted numbers have slowly grown in proportion to painted every year. The speed I paint I have at least 10 years of minis ahead of me even if I don't buy more. But looking at and buying minis seems to be the biggest part of my hobby.

Got my notification. Only 11 pounds. I feel somehow inadequate after seeing how big other people's are. :unsure:

I have been on the fence for a while about backing Bones 4.  I have been understanding of the delays with China.  I was frustrated but understanding of the Zone 1 & 2 going first, after all it was only 2 days.  This however may be the deciding factor.  

 

It is looking more and more like the 1 or 2 day delay for Zone 3 will be at least 7 and that the update they posted about doing Zone 3 in wave order was just a lie.  Of course I don't know that for certain, but with only an extremely vague post from them and several posts of people getting their notice (multiples of them being in waves 2 or more) that is what the evidence points to.

This type of reaction is really what a quick update would help quell.

      About this project
      The Hobby Holder is a better way to paint miniatures, period.
      There are so many awesome miniature games on the market right now like Kingdom Death, Shadows of Brimstone and Descent to name a few as well as some great RPGs (anyone else excited about Starfinder?) and tabletop and wargames. Not to mention all those Bones miniatures from Reaper that will need more than a little bit of paint.
      Enter the Hobby Holder, a versatile, all-in-one miniature painting holder and grip system that’s not just for gamers but for hobbyists of all kinds.
       
      Ideal for painting, sculpting, model building and more!

      Accepts Popular and Household Painting Base Options
      Accepts standard 28mm soda caps; Games Workshop - Citadel ™ Paint Caps; Privateer Press - Formula P3 paint caps; and 20mm cork inserts.
      Offset handle accommodates various height miniatures while allowing for painting and airbrushing from any angle.

      Lots of room all around your miniature.
      55mm from base to under side of the handle and 25mm from center of base to the side of the handle
      Unique QuickClick attachment allows you to easily switch between grip, handle and base-only configurations and provides 360-degree rotation for ultimate control.

      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
