DELAYED
Base Boss by Reaper

392 posts in this topic

So did anyone else see the preview of a Base Boss Kickstarter by Reaper Miniatures on the homepage? It redirected to a ReaperCon page but it was blank. The preview had an American flag and Bald Eagle for a background.

 

I didn't get a chance to screenshot it as I was trying to find out where it was going and when I went back to it, it was gone.

 

Any info on this or did someone accidentally hit enter on a preview they shouldn't have?

 

ETA: Here is the link that it directed to, ETA 1.2 corrected link per ReaperBryan's post below. http://www.reapermini.com/baseboss

 

 

EDIT TO ADD:

Project is live!

Interesting...

I wonder if this will be anything like the PVC base inserts from Micro Art Studios. That would be great.

Or was it what they were planning to do before they abandoned their plans to help MAS? So could be just some leftover web pieces, and its acting all funky for some reason.

I'd love it if they were like the ones from Micro Art/CMON.

Bugger. I typoed the link.

 

Once again I learn not to push code live at 5:55 on a Friday. not even simple links.

 

Reapermini.com/baseboss not reapercon.com

 

I'll come to work tomorrow and fix the links. *sigh*

Just a heads up, I went to the PM for Base Boss and made some pre-selections but the site gets stuck when recalculating. I'm using Windows 10 with Chrome, both up to date.

So... will Thomas be getting a friend, or does he still have enough capacity?

I guess this falls under the Pre-launch Tag then.

Last 4 starting with 74043 in the PM don't show pictures.

Wondering if 74038 and 74039 are listed incorrectly.

The PM doesn't calculate for me either but there's plenty of time before the launch. I'd love to see some simple flagstone or dungeon floor textured bases. Nothing extravagant. Something similar to the SDE bases but in 1" 2" & 3" sizes. That would make re-basing all of these dungeon crawl board game minis a piece of cake.

Hmm, I'm wondering now if ReaperBryan intentionally released the PM early so that us wacky forumites find weird ways to break the system and he can start working the fixes now instead of the middle of the campaign.

 

Tricksies RearperBryan.

Ha, sounds plausible.

 

Recalculating doesn't work for me either and the console doesn't provide any clues (Opera on Ubuntu 16.04). At some point that link at the top will need to point to the Reaper KS instead of the Secret Weapon one...

 

This is... I'm not sure how I feel about this. It's so useful. So I think it should be nice. I was already thinking I should have gotten one of the BIG orders of bases instead of the little one. But I am going to have a hard time getting excited about new base sizes. Maybe that's okay. Or maybe Reaper peeps have thought of some unexpected places to take this? Either way I'm looking forward to this. Hard to complain about more Reaper kickstarters.
