Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

Why has the nearly 1.5 years waiting for this seem so easy but this last month or two are so hard?!

 

Do we want to start getting guesses for the official start date of shipping?

 

My guess Feb 20th 

 

I don't think they'll start shipping on a weekend. Saturday is one day before Sunday, and I don't think they'll start shipping on a Sunday. Friday is also too close to a weekend; I think they'll want to make sure things are going smoothly before taking a break. That leaves Monday through Thursday. Monday can start off the week. Therefore, I bet shipping starts on a Monday. The 18th for if Reaper is very confident, because it will look good getting things out mid-month. 25th if they're being more cautious, but still want to hit February and not go until the last minute.

It always kind of blows my wife and her mother's minds when I get a big order that I made years ago. MIL's reaction is, "you trusted somebody with your money for that long?" Wife's is usually, "We didn't really have the money for that right now." "But honey, I paid for it when we did have money!" :ph34r: Leaving the pledge manager open for longer is insidious and evil. And fun. Being able to add a bit now and then has lead me to buying way more than I would have as a one off.

How many minis are we anteing up with our bets? To be given to the nearest mini painting friend whose guess was better than ours (in-person friend, no need for shipping).

 

Three DHL minis on February 18th.

Two DHL minis on February 25th.

I went through the same thought process but for some reason I just felt a Monday would be too cliche.

Too much post-weekend sluggishness on Mondays?

The 18th would definitely be out, because it is a major US holiday (President's day), and even IF reaper worked it, USPS would not, so what would be the point. When we got shipments in, we tried to get customers orders out same day, that was monday, so it's not out of the realm of possibility that it would be the 25th. IF the containers are already in country, then it's just a matter of organizing and pulling, so that would be mid week maybe? Maybe a "LIVE" reaper episode devoted solely to Bones 4 shipping? @Reaper Ronwhat do you think? Ooh, can this count as a reaper live question, or should I e-mail it?????

Mondays were my warehouse guys busiest day! I know, I was working with them. You'd be amazed how much crap you can cram in one of those containers!

 

I would GUESS this is how it will go, no bets though, that would be bad. Yup, nothing to see here:lol:

Whoops. I forgot about the holiday. So okay, I'll yank that one. My calendar didn't tell me so! <excuses> 

 

Alright, so your bet is mid-week, to do the organizing and pulling, then shipping. 

 

I suspect February 25th for shipments to start.

Betting on shipping needs to be removed from your posts.

When you actually have wagering, that is violation under trade clause. 

Go fix your posts. Dont make me clean up the mess.

My apologies @ladystorm. It was mostly in jest, as the intention. Editing away! 

I'll bet she knows it was in jest, but when dealing with the vagaries of government, she can't take the risk that some bureaucrat somewhere will take it seriously.

hopefully I <redacted> enough of the relevant points in my post. Apologies @ladystorm if I made it seem like I placed <redacted>, it was not my intention. Just trying to make a guess at when the goodness will head out from reaper::P:

Back to the matter at hand though... we are guessing at shipping days. What about arrival days? Something from the UK got to me in about a week. That was pretty sweet. 

CanadaPost might get grumpy with a big box though. My guess: 3 days in the US, 10 days at the border, 3 days of CanadaPost, and then 1 day for me to miss it, and wait until it sits at the post office for pickup. 

 

So..... March 14th. I predict I will have my box on pi day.

I have spring break off of work. It would be wonderful if the shipment arrived at my house before mid-March. Murphy's Law says it will show up the Monday after...

 

My guess is test shipments start the week of President's Day followed by actual start on Feb. 25th.

As I sit here looking at my spreadsheet (geez, I ordered that much????ouch) and imagining what I am going to do with all these mini's, I looked at the small world heroes and realized, what the heck is the 4th female character? I know one is sophie and the two male and two of the females are the adventuring group, BUT who is the 4th female? Still cannot believe we didn't get a Mr. Bones:(

      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.
