Pre-launch
Bones IV pre-launch & news

1040 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

So, this week Michelle and I made a very last-minute decision to take a short road-trip to Origins.

We decided on Tuesday afternoon to go for Wednesday/Thursday to check out the convention for the first time.

We caught up with the Reaper crew, played some new games and were really glad we went.

The Origins program book held a couple of… interesting tidbits.

The first and most obvious was this full-page ad by Reaper:

But the second is arguably more interesting. Julie Guthrie was one of the convention's guests of honour and her description in the program book included this interesting photo (enhancement by me):

Now, it might just be the angle, or my memory failing me, but that looks like a new, giant dragon by my favourite dragon sculptor.

Thoughts? Feeling? Wild speculation? Go.

OH! Buzzkill!! There goes the rampant speculation!

(Well, now that he mentioned it, it does sort of look like Mal's other wing . . . )

Yes.

It will be the website. With that pesky thing called Bones 3 fulfillment, it didn't get launched in error.

It will be up by end of the week once we are back in office from Origins.

You guys went to Origins? Did you hear anything about Bones 4 while you were up there?

I didn't ask about Bones 4, but I did talk about Bones 3 a bit.  Some logistics delaying some models to retail didn't occur to me like needing to design, prototype, review, revise and ultimately print packaging for minis that won't fit into any of the existing standard blisters.  Things like Goremaw was the example I asked about.  This knowledge has allowed me to reset my patience.

 

Bones 4 likely needs to have it's timelines adjusted to account for Bones 3 and Baseboss and Convention Season.  I'm taking a we'll know, when they know and can tell us.

Just checked that URL again today and it still comes up with an error for me. Same for everyone else?

I'm actually okay with bones 4 waiting a bit. I will be completely done after dwarven forge 5, and I've only barely started painting my bones 3. I want to be excited, not dreading.

I do believe that Bryan was re-prioritized with getting the RCon tickets/badges up and for sale.  So it may not be this week.

I just tried the URL for kicks. Even did a few refreshes.

 

Then I was likely to be eaten by a grue. By Zork! ::D: (I feel old, because I didn't need to Google it)

I'd be surprised if Bones IV launches before the EU & AUS regional hubs at the very least start shipping.  You'd tend to get a lot of ROW backers crying "Foul!" at that stage.

Would also impact backing quite a bit, I imagine. You need time for people's current hoards to sink in before you can sell them another pile.

I'm kinda wondering about Reaper's schedule, they've got a lot going on with Reapercon, Base Boss, going to other conventions and so on. A delay would probably disappoint a lot of people, but they'd have a saner schedule and maybe be better prepared. (Not that I want a delay.)

      Swarming out from several enormous dimensional Rifts, a horde of giant invaders, so different in shapes and sizes that they couldn’t belong to the same species, had apparently decided the time had come to bring Humankind to extinction. They got damn close to it too! Two years went by after the first invasion, years in which two thirds of the Earth’s population was wiped out. In order to survive, every single nation left aside any ideal of independence and united under the flag of the Earth Federation, dividing cities into Metropoleis and Refuges and attempting any possible strategy to stay alive…
       
      War Titans: Invaders Must Die, actually tells us a story deeply rooted in a distant period preceding the birth of our Sun, thus revolutionizing the Darwinian concept of human evolution. Our tale makes us discover the Shik’har, a magnificent race of space warriors. For an incredibly long time, the Shik’hars have fought triumphantly against any single species, creature concealing the seeds of evil, and has banished them one by one inside inaccessible dimensional prisons.

      Play.. Your Way
      Intelligent design and community feedback have created not just a game table, but a gaming system that adapts to your needs and style of play.
      - Select from two table sizes. We offer both 3'x5' or 4'x6' gaming surfaces.
      - Next select from a variety of colors and finishes. Natural birch, Storm Grey and Pitch Black are your first choices.

      - Finally, choose from a wide variety of play enhancing accessories. Cupholders, dice towers, DM screens, Hellbox towers of storage, card organizers, full table covers and pull out desk features are all available to you. 
       

       
       
      Can Your Game Table Do This?
      Need even more flexibility? Have a gaming store or club that needs more sq footage of play space? No problem.
      Our tables are modular so you can combine them together to create the size and shape that you desire. 
      The opportunity does not end when you buy your first table from us. It only begins.
      Unmatched modularity and flexibility guarantee you will never outgrow this rare gaming system.
      Create the layout of your dreams. Our tables can contain and manage any world you can dream up. 
       

       
      We will offer two size tables to start with. The first has a 3'x5' playing surface and measures 3'9"x5'9" overall. The second has a 4'x6' playing surface and is 4'9"x6'9" overall. Height is table height. Both sizes are fully modular so you can buy more than one table and create many larger table shapes and designs.
      Some small special parts may be required for certain ambitions table combinations. Please check with us if you have certain configuration needs for joining multiple tables so we can take care of you.
      In the near future options will be available to convert to bar height or coffee table height. 
       
      All of our products are designed on computers and cut by robotic CNC. Then the parts are hand finished. They are designed to ship flat-pack to you for affordability. Assembly is required and we strive to keep that as simple as possible. Many things are pre-assembled for you. The primary material we use is renewable, very dense European birch plywood. The short growing season of our birch trees ensures a very dense and hard grain. Perfect for long life and a quality experience for you and your friends. We use natural finishes and water based paints. The playmats are custom made and similar to a mouse pad. They can be removed if desired to reveal a beautiful solid surface beneath.
