Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

8788 posts in this topic

What I have spent so far:

 

Bones 1 $177

Bones 2 $233

Bones 3 $467 ($265 and $202)

Bones 4 $493.43 (so far)

 

I see a trend of escalating will fail here of $1370.43 hopefully it will not be about $400 extra so that each one doubles.

Who did the Boys I-IV Supporter badge that I have at the bottom of my signature?  

 

Was it Argentee? 

 

It would be great if whoever it was could add the DoD model to it now to replace the question mark, since I assume that's going to be the biggest release from Bones 4..

I actually remembered correctly! ::P: 

 

Thank you so much for offering to do that!   I appreciate you taking the time.

Yes the Cultist lady is something I really wanted too.

And I'm not really a Chibi fan, I've painted one, and I do have a few unpainted ones.

But the only one I liked was Cleocathra..she didn't show either.

 

Well, maybe next time!

Can't win them all.

 

I was waiting for the cultist, too. Of all the figures this time she was the one I wanted the most. I sure hope we don't have to wait 2 years for another KS and then 2 more for her to get produced.  (Though there was one figure from KS1 that I waited that long for)

 

I thought Reaper did very well with keeping the excitement up so that we had reveals almost every day, and the number of backers and funding climbed at a steady rate.  Despite the few backers who felt we needed another reveal like an addict needed another hit the pace was very brisk. 

 

We got:

 

core

Rocky x2

skeletal creatures

zombie dragon

Dreadmere

statues x2

Dance of Death x2

tree

hut 

Blacksting

Nyarlathotep

art book

extra Sophie packs

 

I had problems with the pledge manager in the last hour. It would not recalculate the total as I was adding the final goals.  So my pledge came up a few $ short, but since I will probably be adding things before it closes, I can settle up later.

I'm kinda hoping NOT. Between the KS and Reapercon, my budget's in pain as it is.

Although that last section made me feel good. "Yes, Reaper fans and buyers, we ARE listening, and here's a whole bunch of stuff you said you wanted." Good feelin's. Hope it sells so hard it melts the cash register.

As I was going through the PM last night I was again (as always)  impressed by Reapers planning and execution of this KS.   Where as with bones 3 there are very few items I need at retail, bones 4 I will still have plenty to buy.  The additional expansions worked very well in that regard, since for any multiples (and there are plenty I want multiples for) I am holding off on until retail.  The exception was darkreach, that I am getting two of and feel that will give me the numbers I am looking for.  I hope to see more expansions structured like darkreach if they do more KSs as it is super convenient as a consumer.

Early on, when the Reaper hyped the big capstones, I had guessed a not-Bahamut or not-Paladine.  Although they list Argent as a Silver Dragon, it could easily be the Good Dragon God to combat Ma'al.  If they had dubbed it the capstone, that would be fine.

 

But they didn't!  They kept hinting at something else that wasn't the barge or Argent.  The fact that it wasn't revealed is a little bit of a relief (wallet), frustration (teased completionist), and confusion (maybe it would have been revealed at 3.14M).

 

I doubt that would get released in the PM post-KS.  I will go on record as speculating that the barge will be made whole.

 

All in all, I'm very satisfied with the campaign and have more minis than I'll ever be able to prep and paint.

This seems like it will be similar in price retail to the expansion they come from.  I cannot forsee the large mammoth, shark, and snail being cheap and the 3 toads at 2.50 each are nothing to sneeze at when taking out of the price of the expansion. 

 

I myself keep hearing a carnival show announcement with a terrible megaphone "and now a HUGE Dwarf!!!.  Let me introduce Steve the Terrible!!!"  I laughed so hard at this reveal.  I want more now.

Ok, my going to reveal a lack of knowledge that I probably shouldn't, and probably reduce any small "forum cred" I may have had, but what is the significance of the so specifically named, Isobael Bard, figure in the Fans'  Favorites Expansion.

Ah, ok.  Thanks.   So yes, I know who Izzy Colier is, but where does the "Bard" (and the dog) come from?

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. 

 

It was great running into you. I spent most of the day going, 'Man, I know that guy from somewhere?'

 

For my what I'm getting from the KS list, it might be easier to list what I'm not getting: Paint Set A. And let the good natured I hate you begin, I walked away from the countdown party with Baba Yaga's hut.

      About this project
       

      Thank you for taking the time to check out Divinity: Original Sin 2, our biggest and most ambitious RPG to date!
      A couple of quick facts about the game:
      Divinity: Original Sin 2 is a single- and multiplayer top-down, party-based role-playing game with pen & paper RPG-like levels of freedom.It features turn-based combat, a strong focus on systematic gameplay and a well-grounded narrative. Divinity: Original Sin 2 is the sequel to the critically acclaimed Divinity: Original Sin, winner of over 150 Game of the Year awards and nominations. Winner of GameSpot’s “PC Game of The Year 2014â€. Divinity: Original Sin 2 is currently in development for PC in English. Subtitles will be available in German, French, and Russian. Other platforms and languages may be announced at a later stage, once development is more advanced.
      The theme of Divinity: Original Sin 2 is how your origins affect who you are and what chances you get in life.
      At the start of the game, you pick a single character and determine your starting stats, race, and origin story.

      You'll be able to recruit up to three companions, each of whom is just as detailed as the character you're playing, with their own origin story and motivation to help you in your quest.
      This makes it possible for each companion to become a player character in multiplayer mode; every party member is equally important to the whole.

      In multiplayer, up to 4 players can play together, either cooperatively or competitively.
      During competitive questing, you’ll pursue different plot-lines from other players, often because your personal motivations are in conflict with those of the party.
      To loot or not to loot: You'll have to argue, reason, or duke it out.
      There's no obligation to compete, of course. Many party members will manage to balance their own interests with those of the party. Should you find yourself in conflict, know that it's always possible to make up afterwards.
      The important thing here is that it's you who gets to make that choice.

      Do yourself a favour and take a look at what's on offer even if you've not backed one of Stonehavens projects before.
      Lots of unique and fun concepts scattered throughout,
       
      Plus they've done things a bit differently and have everything already sculpted and shown.
       
      Love the cloaked mysterious strangers.

      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2052977442/carnevale-the-miniature-game

      Carnevale is a tactical narrative miniatures game set in 1790's Venice. Safe from the effects of the Rent in the Sky that tore Italy in half, Venice is now a hot-spot of magical activity. Strange creatures rise from the canals, the ruling class play violent games with lesser men, and the population of Venice try to survive. All vie for power in the street fights that take place in the dark of the night.

      Carnevale is a game that focuses on movement and brutal combat. You're as likely to see two people battling in the streets as you are to see warriors jumping from rooftop to rooftop and drowning their opponents in the canals. Using the tight streets and watery dangers to your advantage will ensure victory, and if it doesn't, some well-timed magic spells might!

      Carnevale is a narrative game that sees gamers play through various scenarios with their gangs of fighters. The games skirmishes allow for in depth storytelling, and we have made an effort to streamline rules in order to let the action take place on the tabletop, rather than spending too much time keeping track in the pages of a rulebook. The tactical flexibility opens up when building your gangs how you want, using many varied members to different effect.
