Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

Recommended Posts

i hope we get to see some more dreadmere stuff soon. I think more people will add it once they see that it will be worth the 50$. 

 

Also, look at the reaction over a row boat... what do you think would happen if they put a 50$ caravel out there? 

 

Cant wait to see Baba Yaga, also!!

    I'm thinking  a couple of small rare earth magnets; one in the tree, and one in the back of each victim will give a nice bit of flexibility to the Tree of Despair.   I wonder if the vultures could be mounted that way to...

 

Vultures: I doubt this. 

 

However!

—Embed earth magnets pointing up at all desired buzzard perch locations on the upper branches...

—Make holes in the buzzards with a pin vise as one would to pin a part...

—Insert wire (the butt end of a Jumbo paper clip would be ideal) into the hole...

—Press fit against hard surface to get the wire flush with the bottom of the buzzard. 

 

Wire sticks to magnet. Buzzards can turn on their perches. Mechanics solved.

But that ^ is if one just has to use magnets. If the pin in the buzzard projected downward about 6-9mm, and there was a snug fitting hole in the tree at each perch, at least 10mm deep...

 

It ought to be possible to remove and install buzzards at will. And empty holes that lack a buzzard ..?.. look like knot holes, ...in a tree.

Aren't the vultures the same ones that were released in metal earlier in the year? If so they're big enough to magnet without much trouble.

Hahaha I kept reading the averag hourly pledge for the last 24 hrs as the last hours gain, and kept thinking we were gaining 2k an hour over night. And was thinking Good Job Europe!

 

But 2 new net backers and $700 is what I was expecting for a early Sunday morning/Sunday afternoon/Monday morning. Aka 7-8am CDT. 

 

And that progress is still good, because we keep trucking.

I keep seeing people post the day 7 graphic, which showed us on pace money wise. That is not true any more. After day 7 Bones 3 cranked up it's $/day and looked like it would intercept bones 2. Bones 4 is not the same way. We are still in slow burn mode. The expansion and tree keep up from sliding further but we are going to need all of our days just to get as many items as the shorter bones 3 at this rate. Greedy me was ping for more.

 

But I am not trying to be negative. We are in good shape for backers (Not like 2, but keeping a hair ahead of 3). There just needs to be more to spend money one. In my opinion the first expansion took too long. $615,000 between first and last. It seems like Reaper noticed this ans squeezed the first two Dredmere $90,000 apart. 

 

Let's face it, Bones 2 may never be caught but we might as well have a few more big money items so the high rollers can push new reveals.

More expansions would bring more money. More add ons would bring more money. 

I think Reaper should put out as much product as they can, because it will only make them more money. 

 

Last KS, I went in for the giants, the crusaders, the frost worm expansion and extra Hobs. 

Have patience. They have ways to get you to spend money.

Have faith in the Reap! And have patience.  Right now, building the backer numbers is the key, and that's what they're doing. There's still 20 days, almost three weeks, for reveals.   This is their 7th Kickstarter, so there's a pretty good bet they have a handle on what they're doing. ::D:

 

They've already alluded to the fact that there's big things coming, so the big money will come too.  They're experts at knowing how to let the excitement ebb and flow. If they dumped all the big stuff now, there'd be no excitement at the end.  If it's like their past Kickstarters, that last week will be like Christmas, Mardi Gras, and Fourth of July rolled into one!

As companies release more products into the same small consumer markets, the volume of goods that they're able to sell tends to go down--at least as long as the old things are still out there, functioning.

 

We've seen declines in totals across all of the Bones kickstarters... I think it is reasonable to expect Bones IV to end up somewhere below Bones III in the final total.

 

Still, we've got a surprising number of backers for where we are in the longer campaign and we've only just now had the second expansion shown. There's potential for this to zoom right past III, maybe, and it looks like Reaper is going to do their damnedest to try to make that happen.

 

Should be fun!

I do want to add that I think they are doing a really good job with the Core. The cave dwellers are a great include.

      Goblin Troublemakers  
      the mighty Troll (work in progress)  
       
       
       
      Goblins ... iconic fantasy creatures, maybe not the most dangerous, comical at times,
      And Trolls ... Trolls may be a bit slow ... not to say stupid, but they are big, and strong! (and always hungry!)
      Together, Trolls and Goblins are a force to reckon with!
      This campaign is a small group of goblins and a big troll to accompany them. If they are funded, we'll add more goblins, for larger warbands, some characters to lead them, and more trolls!
      Goblins are among my favorite figurines to carvings, different expressions, anatomy, costumes and armours ... I have many of them in the pipeline, and I want to sculpt many more!
      You can pledge for a warband of 5, 10 or 20 goblins. If you pledge for 5, they will be the 5 goblins you see here. If you pledge for 10 or 20 models you'll get 2 or 4 of each of them. However, you're more likely to be stretched, they'll be swapped with other miniatures so you get the minimum amount of doubles. And some of these goblins thrown in the larger warband will not be your average goblin canon fodder!
      If you want to add a Troll (or several!) To your goblin warband, just add $ 22 (per troll) to your pledge.

      About this project
       
       
      Time of Legends: Joan of Arc is a narrative miniatures board game that plunges you into the heart of the Hundred Years’ War. In this dark, medieval universe, kings plot for the throne of France, and on the battlefield their heroic knights clash with foes both real and legendary.
      For more than a century, from 1337 to 1453, the fields of France rang to the sound of constant warfare. The Hundred Years’ War is one of the longest wars ever fought and is the source of many of our collective ideas about heroic knights of old. It was also a time of myths and legends, and a fervent faith in the literal truth of the doctrine of Holy Mother Church. It is this world of strife and faith that this game recreates.
      In Time of Legends: Joan of Arc, all the creatures that the medieval people thought were real, are real. Whether they are represented on tapestries, in stained glass windows, or in illuminated manuscripts, we take them at their word. It is this dark and epic universe that you will explore in the game’s many scenarios. Some are historical, with no taint of the whispered legends of strange creatures. Others are replete with the supernatural or (saints preserve us) demonic.
      You are free to control the army of miniatures that represent your heroes, knights and peasants as you wish in order to achieve your goals. You will decide who moves and where; whether your forces explore, pray, converse with locals, or simply charge into battle. But before we get to the field of glory, you must first choose your side.
        
      Joan Of Arc, Bertrand Du Guesclin, La Hire, Gilles de Rais & Jean de Dunois (miniatures are supplied assembled and unpainted)  The French have a very large army whose leaders follow the code of chivalry to the letter. These noble knights form the main striking force of the army, with their infantry taking a subservient role. The French employ few archers, but do hire efficient crossbowmen to fight alongside their men-at-arms. All these warriors fight on behalf of the King of France, who sees the war as a chance to reclaim lands lost to the English under earlier monarchs.
      The Black Prince, Falstaff, John Talbot, John Chandos & John of Lancaster (note that minis come assembled and unpainted) The English king considers himself the legitimate heir to the throne of France, and there is some truth in this. In fact, he only failed to gain the crown because the French changed the rule of royal succession to stop him.
      The English army, though considerably less numerous than the French, are formidable combatants, who often have the best strategists. Their longbowmen wreak havoc on the battlefield, and have repeatedly bested the cream of French chivalry in battle. This is a slight that the French knights are determined to avenge.
      Archange Gabriel, the Unicorn & Angel (note that minis come assembled and unpainted) The army of God is made up of powerful, heavenly beings like the angels and archangels. They fight their righteous battles alongside the lesser creatures of God, and the weary mortals who struggle with sin, but are devoted to their creator.
      The Holy Army can be played independently, or allied with the French, or the English.
      The Witch, the Werewolf & the Ghost Warrior (note that minis come assembled and unpainted) The Devil’s army is made up of all sorts of foul creatures: werewolves, demons, skeletons, dragons, witches, and many more. Countless fallen mortals march alongside this monstrous host, having cast aside their God and sold their souls for mere wealth or power. It is rumoured that in this dark time, when the End of Days has never seemed so close, even the Devil himself may make an appearance...
      The Unholy Army can be played independently, or allied with the French, or the English.

      Another set of plastic minis for the Ogre game, or for fans of retro style tanks.
       
      I don't see a pledge that includes the Ogre game, looks like just minis this time.
