Posted (edited)

I finally got the chance to start my B3 inventory, but still have too many things on my plate and am being very meticulous. Plus granddaughters 1 & 2 wanted to help. Killed alot of time and I cab definitely report #1 had a blast playing with Mr & Mrs Bones plus vulture. Oh. And the flying monkey.

 

got through the core set with only a missing werewolf head. Next up is going through the bigger figures verifying all parts are there. I got the next three days off from work so hopefully I'll get the counting done.

My pledge was delivered on Friday!  Haven't had time to go through it all, but Mal'drakar was all there.

 

Thanks Reaper and crew!

I did a full inventory of my Bones 3 sets.  No missing items or obvious unfixable defects.  I've had bad luck with larger kickstarters so this is a pleasant surprise.

Alright, I'm afraid I'm going to have to bring this up, but I need to know if this has affected anyone else. When I originally got my Bones 3 package everything was in order except for two figures. Andras-Evil Warrior has a blob of plastic over his right eye that distorts his face, while Ivar-Dwarf Priest has a warped hammer and a mold line on his head that makes it look like a step. Alright, that's not a problem because I know that Reaper will always step up to replace any defective product. I got the replacements a couple of weeks ago and.... they had the exact same problems as the originals. I thought it was odd and that it must have been a bad batch, so I asked for replacements again and specifically requested that the miniatures be closely inspected to make sure they don't have the defects. I just received them today, they were in blisters and yet the exact same problems are on them as well. Here are pics of the originals as reference, sorry if they're a touch blurry:

My question to everyone is, has this happened to anyone else who received these figures? Is this an issue that has affected only a few people, or is there a major defect with the molds that has affected all the figures? I would honestly like to know the answers to these and see if it's really worth it to ask for a replacement if I'm only going to receive another substandard figure in return, or if this is a temporary thing and that steps are already being taken to correct this problem.

@William Boyle, etc. - We're sorry, it's not a question of not wanting to answer, it's a question of not having any new information. We have not been notified yet of any realistic timeframe, and customs and other factors continue to cloud our ability to offer realistic estimates.

 

As 'one of the 158'(I have 4 orders... ) I'm not all that interested in estimated timeframes.

What I would really like is just knowing what is happening.

A short 'Pallet went out the door today'

Pallet is being transported by xxxxx service.

Pallet arrived in England today...  

 

You know, just 'kept in the loop'.

 

Oh, and my guess is that the missing pallet ended up in Australia, where it was subsequently nicked by D&D-playing Koalas.

(Can't trust the Koalas. They're almost as evil as the sheep)

I suspect these may be the Bones 3 version of some of the noseless Bones 1 minis that never made it to retail (2 or 3 if I remember right) as they just couldn't get them to cast that body part reliably enough (or at all?)

Finished my invemtory on Sunday with the only issue being a missing werewolf head! Great job Reaper!

 

Better yet, I sent Reaper a note Sunday evening, with all the right info, I assume, and got a note Monday aftenoon that my replacement is in work. ::D:

 

Finally, during the final inventory I dry-fit Kyphrixes and invisible Kyphixes. That's when I relized I'm going to need a second visible Kyphrixes, cuz Kyphrixes going invisible wouldn't make the ground he's standing on go invisible!

 

Of course, I can always just paint the terrain base the same as I do the other Kyphrixes! ::P:

My Andras-Evil Warrior had the blob issue as well, as did the replacement.  But I'll just go with it at this point, maybe give one a monocle eye piece and cur the head off of the other, lol.

Eh? 

Has the tracker been updated?  

I could have sworn that it was listing 158 remaining, and Moscow as the last place shipped-to.

It still reads 158, but now it lists Kopenhagen as last place it shipped to...   

 

I should probably check my temperature, or at least check that no one tampered with my tea...

When people who failed to lock in their orders contact us and we have to manually adjust things, it can impact what is shown on the tracker.

Can't those slackers wait until after everyone else(those of us waiting for the fabled 158) have gotten ours?  

If any of them protest, blame me.

 

No word on the replacement pallet, yet, I assume, and the lost pallet is still lost?

(My guess is that it's either in Australia, or it's in the British Customs Warehouse somewhere. Hopefully the former. If not, think final scene of 'Raiders of the Lost Ark' )

      After the success of the first campaign for 16th century Knights I'm now expanding my 28mm Renaissance range with charging mounted Knights!
      These new Knights will have couched lances or be using hand weapons on galloping horses.
      Further I have reworked the figures from the first Knights campaign to make them easier to assemble, they now have sockets to attach the hands and heads. There are also some revised poses and new heads.
      Sets one-three painted so you can get a feel for how these figures can look. Please note these sets are being revised and pictures of the new ones will be added as the campaign continues. These figures are in the popular 28mm scale and will fit well with figures such as Perry miniatures, they can be used for many periods and settings in the 16th century but also for fantasy collections.
      Please note that the figures are unpainted and require assembly they are not toys for children. Also the figures shown still have minor refinements to be made before casting.
      My figures have been highly researched and are packed with details, I have tried to give many of them an explosive sense of movement. Every mounted knight figure comes with a choice of two heads and two plumes the horses are all separate from the riders and all nessesary weapons are included. This means you can customise your figures to create a very unique collection.
      if you back the campaign you will receive you figures at a 25% discount of normal website prices, which means that for the campaign a pack of two mounted Knights cost £15
      Also if the main campaign is a succes as a stretch goal the first pikemen figures will be released...these figures will be in full forward motion with levelled pikes. They can be used for either Landsknechts or Swiss pike.

      In the most distant reaches of the world, magic still exists, embodied by spirits of the land, of the sky, and of every natural thing. As the great powers of Europe stretch their colonial empires further and further, they will inevitably lay claim to a place where spirits still hold power - and when they do, the land itself will fight back alongside the islanders who live there.
       
      Spirit Island is a cooperative, settler-destruction strategy game for 1 to 4 players designed by R. Eric Reuss and set in an alternate-history world around A.D. 1700. Players are different spirits of the land, each with their own unique elemental powers, forced to defend their island home from colonizing Invaders spreading blight and destruction. Work with your fellow spirits and the native islanders to increase your power and drive the invading colonists from your island in this strategic area-control game.
       

       
      This game was playtested at some of my Fourth of July parties, and though I haven't had a chance to play it yet myself, the game comes highly recommended.
       
      The interesting bit here is that you play neither the Invaders nor the Inhabitants of the island, but the spirits trying to alter the balance of power in defense of the Inhabitants themselves.
