Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

Recommended Posts

@Reaper - any chance you could scale up Argent the silver dragon to like 15-18 inches tall? (and however many more inches long/wide) :)

 

have to ask :)

 

Great campaign.   A lot of great models.

 

I must say i was very surprised with some of the choices.


I really expected a demogorgon due to popularity of stranger things and the resurgence of ppl buying demogorgon minis :P

 

also didn't expect the boat

I'll just add that these last months were pretty competitive for the KS dollar. We had *two* CMON KS, Dwarven Forge KS, and Reaper from late June to early September, plus the usual smaller miniatures KS. That's quite a bit for a little over two months. Myself, I pledged for the Mantic Terrain Crate and Hand of Glory KS, and will be pledging for the ForgePrints AdventureScapes dungeon accessories KS next week. Great time for miniatures, terrible time for the wallet!

4) and yes, the long stretches between goals.

 

I guess number 4 is kind the reverse side of the other 3. If everything went to plan and people were hyped for the final push, the goals wouldnt have been too far apart... but, with the slower final push, having the goals closer might have helped compensate. Having the goals closer, though, is a little bit outside of reapers control in as much as they still need to be far enough apart to cover the production cost - or at least would require less grand / less expensive goals in order to get them close together.

 

At the end of the day it was still a big success, though, and gives them more to think about for their Bones 5 strategy

The KS "View pledge" button next to "Youre a backer" has backer number at the bottom beneath the rewards and your pledge.

Easiest way to find it is to go to the main campaign page and hit the "View Pledge" button. It'll be at the bottom of the popup that appears.

Great meeting everyone I meet last night at Reaper game store.  Ran into an old friend I hadn't seen in roughly 6 years out of the blue. Glad he recognized me, a beard is a really good camouflage.  

 

 

See y'all at Reaper Con.

Man everyone heres spending large then there me who has to keep the cost of the minis i get under $205 otherwise I get charged extra for shipping into New Zealand

 

Stupid laws and regulations

 

Jaymezin - probably too late to consider this but you can get around that restriction if you back a few different US waves & get them reshipped to NZ through NZ post.

I've got 3 orders of ~$200 each coming in - wave 1, wave 5, & wave 11.  Experience has shown it's competitive on pricing, faster, and a whole lot less frustrating for me to handle the shipping myself this way than to use the "official" Asia-Pacific shipping from Reaper, and it allows me to stagger the arrival dates so that I don't get hit by duty.

I have sorted things out.

Keeping mind what I already have and what I will probably have painted by then.

Dropped some stuff, added some stuff.

BASES!

Those I need a lot, so great to fill my order.

 

I pledged $500 when I lock in PM my total is $ 499,28..can't get it whole, or it is $500,48.

So I guess I will give reaper 72 cents.

 

I will Get

 

Darkreach ( all those fungi and monsters and that Dark Elf Queen Will end up in my project)

Lost Valley ( Surprise I know ^_^)

Fan Favorites ( Mammoth!!! And the Beetle/Crab stuff, the Toads, the Portal..yep into my project)

Snake Cultists ( because..you know)

Braziers ( always wanted something like that)

Pirate Ghosts ( Project..)

Zombie Dragon ( I love Undead Dragons)

Dragon Turtle ( Project)

Paint Set A ( too good a deal)

Paint Set B ( New Paints Woohooo!)

ROC ( I want a Phoenix)

Frost Giant Raiders ( Couldn't resist the Wolf and two beautiful female giants)

Thunderfoot Behemoth ( Project)

Blacktooth Terror X 2 ( I will build a howdah on the second one See Barge)

Barge X 2 ( one will be painted whole, second will be cut up, use the tent part for a howdah, the rest will become a shipwreck or two)

The rest is filled out with large round and oval bases and flight stands.

In terms of what I'm getting - oh, ninnyhammers, that's going to be interesting given that I've spread everything over 3 separate accounts : )

 

Wave 1

  • Core Set
  • Chronoscope Expansion
  • Wraiths Option
  • Fantasy Scenics Option

Total:  $190, $10 available for other options if I decide to not use it on shipping.  All of these are hard locks.

 

Wave 5

  • Dreadmere Expansion
  • High Rollers Option
  • Paint Set A Option
  • Paint Set B Option
  • Trolls Option
  • Rocky Option
  • Skeletal Monsters Option
  • Living Statue Amazon Option
  • Living Statue Spartan Option
  • Tree of Despair Option
  • Baba Yaga's Hut Option
  • Nyarlathotep Option

Total:  $196, $4 available for other options if I decide not to use it on shipping.  All in italics are soft locks that will probably go out for other stuff where I see more value like the Stygian Canoe Option, but I'm going to wait for a bit and mull that over.  This is definitely the shipment I'm most flexible on and I can easily see myself grabbing stuff that's more compelling or arguably useful like the modern scenics option or the "Stones" tiles over some of this.

 

Wave 11

  • Darkreach Expansion
  • Lost Valley Expansion
  • Fan Favorites Expansion
  • Frost Giant Raiders Option
  • Thunderfoot Behemoth Option
  • Blacktooth Terror Option

Total: $200, right on the upper limit of the budget.  The Frost Giant Raiders are likely to stay in, but if I need to free up $15 somewhere they're the ones to go from here.

 

Total budget:  $600 excluding shipping.  I'm under it by $14 at the moment, rock and roll.

      I did not see this posted anywhere so I thought I'd share. KAMB is an easy to learn, fast paced RPG where you play a Kobold. You die, a lot. They're celebrating their 20th anniversary and are running a kickstarter to re-release the original zine that started it all, but with better rules. I play this every year at Origins in a 100 player game called the Kobold Midnight Massacre and can confirm that it's a great time of silly hijinks and horrible death checks

      I haven’t backed any of Bears Heads kickstarters yet, but I’ve been tempted by everyone.
      This is the one that I give in to. 
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/98300108/narthoks-the-excellent
      But hurry! It’s funded with ONLY 3 DAYS LEFT!

       
      As nice as that sculpt is, it’s the sci-fi and bartender versions I’m most excited about. The stretch goals for those have been reached, but only concept drawings are available to show.

       
      I think these are great unique looking eye beasts.
      @TheAuldGrump maybe something you could use for your campaign?

      Didn't see a post about this yet:
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/deadlyprintstudio/battlefx
       
      BattleFX is a bundle comprising of several 3D designs of dynamic effects and destructible terrain for wargames. ready for you to print.
      Every item of the bundle has been carefully designed and tested to be 3D printed. this kickstarter includes a STL pack of each pledge, ready to be printed using your own 3D printer - or alternatively, using online 3D printing services.
      After working extensively on the movie FX sector, we realized we could apply that experience to our wargamme hobby - and taking things to the next level.
      We have been working very hard and have already finished designing and testing every one of the items on our basic pledge, therefore guaranteeing that YOU will get it. However, we want to continue creating and offering you new, epic effects for your wargames - hence the advance stretchgoals!
        /*Included in Kaboom Pledge and above*\ 
       It has the widest range from trusters to muzzles flashes and smoky Fx!
      S - Muzzles Flashes S - Trusters S - Smoky things!  We are getting more serius here big booms and more complex Fx:
      M - Big weapongs, explosion and Sci-fi Fx M - Smoke Shell, lateral atack, Sci-fi barrier and barrels Fx  The Big Boys. It takes some time to print, but it also turns your war gaming table into a real battlefield.
      L - Smoke grenade, Orbital atack L - Fire, water and ground explosions  The Kickstarter Star Product, the Epic Fx! Destructible, reassemblable scenography and cool lighting.
