Reaper Bones 4: Information Thread

Recommended Posts

At one point Reaper had posted a picture comparing the new hill giants to the old hill giants but it was quickly pulled (think it showed a forthcoming reward at the time).... Is it able to be (re)posted now?

I will not be sharing that image again.

Should I wait to add items to the Pledge Manager or is it ok to do so now...?

 

This is my first Reaper KS so I don't know what to expect and don't want to mess up my order.

 

Thanks!

I was a little disappointed in the crypt from Bones Kickstarter #3, because of the difference in the plastic used to make it. It seems rather fragile and more like something plastic you might get from Games Workshop (ew!). Are any of the new models going to use that same plastic? Mainly I'm concerned about the Stygian Barge.

I understand that certain items must be made of this material to keep it from weighing down the rest of the model, but I don't really think it's necessary for the larger pieces. I love the big heavy rock terrain that's made of bonesium! Hopefully we'll get a barge like that as well. There are other terrain I'm interested in as well, but I would have to know for sure first. I would be willing to take a gamble on the barge, without knowing (but will still be quite sad if it's not made of bonesium).

Another key item I'm interested in is the tree of despair, but surely that would be made of bonesium.

If you didn't back the project on Kickstarter, go to www.reapermini.com/bones4 and sign up for notifications as to when the pledge manager opens.

 

Until it opens, which should be not too far off now, you can't do much with the pledge manager.

Bonesium comes in many different flexibilities.   We won't know what the right one will be until the proofs arrive in many months time.

So what was the third section of the barge going to be and is it possible for late pledge manager donations to reach it?

please lock in as soon as you are able. 

 

It is open now, and you can lock. 

 

There's several ways this can go:

  1. You pledged exactly what you needed to to pay for what you want to select.
    1. In this case, go to the PM while it's fresh in your memory and lock in (that is, go through the Check Out process), confident that you are now done and will receive your order when it is ready.
  2. Your pledge does not cover all of your "wants"
    1. In this case, go lock in what you can. You can check out, "paying" for your pledged items with your Pledge Credit, and then come back as often as you need to suit your budget. You might have 1, 2, 3, or 200 orders, depending on how your specific situation. Each time you order, you will pay at the time you check out

There is a handy video here That should be able to help you - I tried to work through the majority of common permutations of orders to show how you might use the tool.

@Reaperbryan: When I locked my order in, I owed for shipping, and tried to Pay with Credit Card. It looks like Stripe has an old card and I couldn't figure out how to change the card they reference. I paid with Paypal instead, so it's handled for now, but is there a way to change the card that Stripe references?

 

FWIW, I went looking with the usual sort of searches, but didn't find any place to update before I ran out of patience.

you should be able to enter your card number the way I do in the video. (starting at about 3:40)

 

We do not store your CC number in our database nor in system cookies, so unless your browser is storing that data, I have no idea how or where Stripe is getting old data.

I locked in my Pledge Manager last night, and I'm pretty sure I owe you guys some money. I'm one of those folks who only went in for $1 during the kickstarter. I added the Sophie & Friends set so I'd have something tangible in my cart when I checked out, but it did not charge me shipping or tax, nor did it charge me the $3 for the rest of Sophie's base price. It seems to think I'm square with just the $1, even sending me a confirmation email saying I was done. I'm all for getting a good deal as much as any other minis addict, but this is more dishonest than I'd like, and I'd also like to avoid any issues when I start adding other stuff.

The impression I got earlier is that if I checkout now for what I can afford, then add another order later, the system will do its best to charge me the best shipping rate it can on the order as a whole. Is that right?

send email to [email protected]

 

we would need personal information from you to look into this and we will not collect it over a public forum.

So, not sure if this is the right place to post, but it was the best I could come up with.  Anyway, I'm a late backer on the kickstarter, and when I go to add items, the prices don't quite match what is listed on the kickstarter page.  Is this intentional?  I couldn't find any information one way or the other, so I thought I would ask.  Thanks.

Thank you for asking.

 

As a late backer, you have higher prices than those who backed through Kickstarter while the project was live Aug 1 - Sep 2 2017. 

The prices available to you as a late backer are higher than the graphics, yet are still lower than retail will be.

I'm getting a lot of questions/concerns about what people think they have ordered.


Before you email [email protected] to verify your order, log into your pledge manager and look at your Bones IV Pledge Manager Paid Invoice.


If you are seeing red numbers that are different than the quantities you should be seeing in the Pledge Manager, please 1) try a different browser, 2) log out and back in and 3) delete cookies and/or clear your browser cache.

 

99% of the emails I'm getting are resolved by those two directions.

 

Regarding shipping, the shipping rates are live and fluctuate every time the carriers change their rates.  If you had an estimate during the project and have higher rates now, there have been rate increases more than once since the project ended.

      About this project
      This is my first set of TerraScapes.  I present to you a natural Caves & Grottos core set. With the full range of double sided modular tiles, you can quickly create ultra-realistic cavern scenarios for any of your spelunking adventures! If you've ever found yourself in a cave, you know how under represented they are in the games that we love to play. There is nothing linear about spelunking and caverns aren't flat! Caves are twisted sections of open air encased by cool moist rocky walls.  That's why I've coined this terrain as a Nonlinear Modular Terrain System, and it's a new way of dressing your Tabletop with functional, dynamic terrain for all your Tabletop RPG's!
      TerraScapes: Caves and Grottos strives to simulate natural terrain for optimal immersion and strategic playability. To maximize the possibilities every tile is double sided! This means that with every tile you get twice the possible play space! Both tops and bottoms of each tile can be used in your layouts!  Each tile is designed to work like a table where instead of legs, you have stalactites and large rocks. It allows you to stack them up however you want! This gives your layout real depth and introduces a whole new dimension for increased strategical encounters. Whether it's for your big boss battle, wargame or random encounter, everything you'll need for an endless tactical cavern layout comes with our set of Caves & Grottos!
      This video shows how to build an endless array of immersive caverns for your tabletop!
      What's in the Full Set?  I have a ton of tiles prototyped and ready for this campaign.  If everything is unlocked we will have 9 Core double-sided tiles, 3 exclusive large  double-sided KS tiles, 2 Rock Packs which include a total of 8 double-sided rocks and rock/well combinations, 2 sets of Stalactite risers containing a total of 4 risers, 3 double-sided flowstone/pit centerpieces and 4 packs of double-sided wall sections containing 8 wall sections.  This is everything you'll need to bring to life any dynamic cavern scenario that you could possibly dream up!  You can purchase any of these Packs of tiles or accessories as Add-ons as they are unlocked during this campaign by managing your pledge amount and adding their cost(s).  If you are bad with arithmetic, just send me a message and I'll give you hand personally!
      I know, I know...  I'm getting ahead of myself here!  When the campaign launches we'll only have the three tiles from Core Pack:A, and the exclusive KS:1 tiles available.  Whenever we unlock another Core Pack, I will also unlock another exclusive KS tile for you to snatch up!  I am fairly confident that we are going to smash through almost every stretch goal I have planned.
      Core Pack:A Random Layout with KS Tile:1  With the exception of the Stalac-Packs, note that every terrain piece in TerraScapes is double-sided. The following graphics depict both the tops and bottoms of every piece and are not separate pieces offered with the packs.  The sizes listed are in terms of tile height.  So a Size 2 piece is two tiles high.  A Size 3 piece is 3 tiles high.  
      Please Manage your Pledge if you would like to add-on any pieces.  A survey will be sent after the Kickstarter has concluded for you to list which add-ons and options (like paint schemes) you would like.  All shipping charges will be handled by a Third Party Pledge Manager after the Kickstarter as well.  You will have until December 1st, 2017 to update your Pledge using this Pledge Manager
      3 Core Pack:A tiles and the first Exclusive KS Tile:1 As each set of new tiles and accessories are unlocked we will journey deeper into what TerraScapes: Caves and Grottos has to offer any story.  During this campaign, your very pledges will move a group of adventurers through the deep, exploring the sets that you unlock.  Our heroes fate will depend upon your support!  When the campaign ends, our adventurers will either perish or succeed in escaping these deep Caves & Grottos! 
      Core Pack:A, KS Tile:1 and Rocks & Wells Pack:A  
      Rock & Wells Pack:A contains four Size 1 Risers  
      Stalac-Pack:A contains two Size 2 Risers  
       
      Core Pack:B Random Layout with KS Tile:2

      I'd felt like I was banging my head on a wall with the main mini that I was working on lately, so I set that aside to work on this as a something simple to make me feel a bit better.  My first try at NMM, too (which shows ).  All I can say is that the contrast really did look better to my eyes until I started taking photos of it.  At least it's somewhat made up for by how nice the eyes and the gem on the left bracer turned out.

      So this guy was a relatively quick paint job - I worked on him over a couple of nights in between other figures and while things were drying. 
      I had originally basecoated him a couple of months back when I decided that I was absolutely going to paint something using Breast Cancer Awareness Pink, as I have something like 8 bottles of it at this point. This was the figure that I pulled out of my Bones drawer. I’d basecoated him and then he made his way to the Shelf of Shame unfortunately. 
      I saw him sitting up there and decided I would just have fun with it. 
      The lemures do come 2 to the pack and are in 2 different poses, but this one is the only one I have painted thus far. 
       





       
      I hope y’all find him as fun as I do!

      Hello fine people (and other assorted things) of the Reaper forum!
       
      Continuing in our project of teaming up to show you two different methods to go about painting the same miniature, Buglips and I decided that we would do a WIP thread for Con Crud, Convention Zombie from the 2017 Reapercon swag bag! He's a great little figure, sculpted by Gene Van Horne, that we thought we could have some fun with.
       
      This will be our second shared WIP thread in this series of ours, in case you missed it, check out our first one where we painted Thanis the Bonecaller:
       
      As with that one, I will be covering my usual method of painting for display, and Buglips will be approaching the figure with his own usual "fast-but-decent method." As with the last one, Buglips' method will be much faster than mine will be and you'll get to see where our two styles diverge. We will be sharing our own issues, thoughts and methods with you in the hopes that someone will find such things useful.
       
      So on to the mini!
      Here's my Con Crud, fresh out of his blister:

       
      I prepped him in my usual way, with some diamond files to grind off the mold lines and bit of flash that you can see on his outstretched foot and hand. He has some notable mold lines through his hair and back and down the left (his left) side of his face. I'll show you throughout the process how I'll tackle those.
       
      So here he is after I primed him with Reaper's Brush-On Primer in white, thinned down with some water. As usual, I only did one thin coat so as not to obscure the details on him and I took a couple of additional shots from different angles so you can see some of the mold lines that I'll need to work on a little more down the road.
