Pre-launch
Bones IV pre-launch & news

1040 posts in this topic

I'm not exactly grumpy about Bones 4.  I don't really even mind the overlap of announcements; I assume they have their reasons, and purely speculate that if they were to wait until absolutely every order is received and all corrections made, the delay to Bones 4 might compound production and shipping delays.

 

My minor grumpiness is centered on Bones 3 running so long past the original estimate.  It funded in July 2015 with estimated fulfillment September 2016, so that's a 14 month estimate, missed by 8 months for fulfillment to start.  To the later recipients in US and ROW, it looks like 10 or 11 months past estimate.  So, I'm a little bit skeptical about Bones 4, wondering if I really want to invest in another 2 year fulfillment cycle.  I suppose I will just have to reevaluate when details are released next month.

While I totally let a group of tweens with ADHD use my painted Bones for their games, I would not let a toddler play unsupervised.  A lot of them are too small and are a choking hazard.  Much sturdier than metal for rough handling, though!  ^_^

I would definitely not leave them unsupervised with any small objects as toddlers.

I am not too miffed about bones 3 being later than estimated, we all know KS and delivery times are not on speaking terms.

 

But I would like to actually receive my bones 3 shipment before the bones 4 launches.

 

still waiting. And I am off on a fortnights vacation in three weeks time. Which almost guarantees that it will arrive when I am gone, and then get returned to sender.

They worked out an EU friendly solution in time for shopping this time, as I understood it. Seems reasonable to assume it'll stay that way next time.

The announcement is just "August".  I expect that this is deliberate, so that they can have some wiggle room in their planning.  They are probably hoping that Bones 3 will be delivered by then, since it is obviously a sore point with a lot of backers.  

 

That said, each kickstarter has had huge backing despite plenty of nay-sayers insisting that there would be less.  I'm not going to even try and predict how they'll do for Bones 4.

The Problem is, that when Bones 4 fulfills, the Brexit will probably have taken place and then shipping from the UK might not be EU-friendly any longer. So Reaper might want to look for another partner - in Germany or France, for example.

Of course, there is the possibility for trade agreements between the EU and Britain ... but the situation looks quite foggy at the moment.

I'm now curious on how long the campaign will last.

 

There's always that initial rush (only beneficial if you care in being in the early shipping waves), then several weeks with little activity (though plenty of time for suggestions like the Frogemoth to become reality), and the super exciting final stretch filled with last minute surprises (often very big ones)

 

It has been understood that making a campaign last longer isn't necessarily a good thing.

I've arranged with my post office some extra time to pick stuff up when I'm working out of town; It's apparently common enough that they have a standard procedure. I'm not sure if UPS or whoever has the equivalent, but it might be worth contacting them.

How does the bones material compare in terms of durability to "plastic toy soldiers"? Will bones be suitable as (a bit older) kids toys, or will they break too easiliy when harmed in inappropiate manner? :)

I let my now 3 and 4 year olds play with them, and have done so since they were 2 and three (the older one has been playing with them since she was 2), although I did initially restrict them to larger figures. Only things that have broken have been things that I've glued together using cheap superglue (so big things, like dragons and griffons, but they've broken even without the kids involvement.

      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.

      - Select from two table sizes. We offer both 3'x5' or 4'x6' gaming surfaces.

      - 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.
