  3. If you're wondering how the Rise of the Occulites game plays out, here is a video just uploaded of Ben playing the first scenario using just the core rules. A future video will show the advanced stuff. Cheers!
  4. Hey guys! Ben just posted an overview of the Sungem campaign season in the game on his blog: http://riseoftheocculites.wordpress.com/2013/06/27/a-look-at-the-campaign-system-of-dawn/
  5. Here's a cool boardgame that I playtested and helped edit over the last couple of years. Its by Ben Boersma, (Boromir and Kermit on most forums). It's tons of fun, and it got picked up by Eagle games, so no worries about fullfillment or anything. You can download the game rules on that page, and the figures were sculpted by Bob Olley! Check it out. http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2002188924/dawn-rise-of-the-occulites
  6. I would like to see some of the mouslings that are no longer available make a comeback. That and the alien from the space set. Oh, and although he's not a mousling, Echidnox would be cool as well!
  7. I'll get in on this one as well. Ihave all of the bones dragons coming so I'll pick a couple to do for the challenge. My first challenge!
  8. Whose, Andre the Giant's? I can't wait til mine gets here. That Nethermaul paint job is supurb!
  9. Yeah i was looking in the closet of unfinished dreams that i stuck in my bag of holding and I have close to 7 or 8 hundred that I can see and many more that I cant, but know they are there, haunting me like a ghost. I used to play historical games of all flavors and most of them took pretty sizable armies, so there are tons of that kind, and about 6 gw armies from different games that i lost interest in. However, I vow to paint my bones figures when they get here...er um..... try to paint some of... um.....I'll get back to you!
  10. No most of the complaints I see are about shipping past march period. Some have said what you stated but by and large it has been, OMG ITS APRIL!!! YOU GUYS SUCK!!! Stuff like that. When reading on the kickstarter website tells you this: The Estimated Delivery Date listed on each reward is not a promise to fulfill by that date, but is merely an estimate of when the Project Creator hopes to fulfill by
  11. No, my point was that people shouldnt look at this like placing an order on amazon. A kickstarter is not a guaranteed thing regardless of what their terms of use state. There is the chance of loss. And yes it has happened, that is why they have all of the talk about estimated delivery date and stuff in their terms presently. I'm saying that Reaper has done a fine job of keeping their kickstarter promises and that not all kickstarters go this smoothly and that people should cut them a break.
  12. You are missing the point here. There is an element of risk associated with a kickstarter. All of these things are "required", but how many times have they not been refunded or fulfilled, because the money was gone due to miscalculation or other problems. They can say someone is legally required to do such and so, but how is that then backed up? Ask the people that lost their money to kickstarters and have received nothing. Being legally required to do something and actually being made to do it or having the ability to do it are two different things. That is why I say there is no guarantee. You cannot get money or product from someone when they dont have it to give back regardless of whether they say it is required. That is why kickstarter does not offer refunds or guarantees themselves, they state that the compnay holding the kickstarter is responsible.
  13. Read the faq that I posted. http://www.kickstarter.com/help/faq/kickstarter+basics#Acco but we can use your page also: Backers agree to provide their payment information at the time they pledge to a campaign. The payment will be collected at or after the campaign deadline and only if the amount of money pledged as of the deadline is at least equal to the fundraising goal. The amount Backers pledge is the amount they will be charged. Backers consent to Kickstarter and its payments partners authorizing or reserving a charge on their payment card or other payment method for any amount up to the full pledge at any time between the pledge and collection of the funds. Backers agree to have sufficient funds or credit available at the campaign deadline to ensure that the pledge will be collectible. Backers may increase, decrease, or cancel their pledge at any time during the fundraising campaign, except that they may not cancel or reduce their pledge if the campaign is in its final 24 hours and the cancellation or reduction would drop the campaign below its goal. The Estimated Delivery Date listed on each reward is not a promise to fulfill by that date, but is merely an estimate of when the Project Creator hopes to fulfill by. Project Creators agree to make a good faith attempt to fulfill each reward by its Estimated Delivery Date. For all campaigns, Kickstarter gives to the Project Creator each Backer’s User ID and pledge amount. For successful campaigns, Kickstarter additionally gives to the Project Creator each Backer’s name and email. For some rewards, the Project Creator needs further information from Backers, such as a mailing address or t-shirt size, to enable the Project Creator to deliver the rewards. The Project Creator shall request the information directly from Backers at some point after the fundraising campaign is successful. To receive the reward, Backers agree to provide the requested information to the Project Creator within a reasonable amount of time. Kickstarter does not offer refunds. A Project Creator is not required to grant a Backer’s request for a refund unless the Project Creator is unable or unwilling to fulfill the reward. Project Creators are required to fulfill all rewards of their successful fundraising campaigns or refund any Backer whose reward they do not or cannot fulfill. Project Creators may cancel or refund a Backer’s pledge at any time and for any reason, and if they do so, are not required to fulfill the reward. Because of occasional failures of payments from Backers, Kickstarter cannot guarantee the receipt by Project Creators of the amount pledged minus fees. Kickstarter and its payments partners will remove their fees before transmitting proceeds of a campaign. Fees may vary depending on region and other factors. Kickstarter reserves the right to cancel a pledge at any time and for any reason. Kickstarter reserves the right to reject, cancel, interrupt, remove, or suspend a campaign at any time and for any reason. Kickstarter is not liable for any damages as a result of any of those actions. Kickstarter’s policy is not to comment on the reasons for any of those actions. Project Creators should not take any action in reliance on having their project posted on the Site or having any of the money pledged until they have the ability to withdraw and spend the money. There may be a delay between the end of a successful fundraising campaign and access to the funds. All of these things are "required", but how many times have they not been refunded or fulfilled, because the money was gone due to miscalculation or other problems. They can say someone is legally required to do such and so, but how is that then backed up? Ask the people that lost their money to kickstarters and have received nothing. Being legally required to do something and actually being made to do it or having tha ability to do it are two different things. That is why kickstarter does not offer refunds or guarantees themselves, they state that the compnay holding the kickstarter is responsible.
  14. How so? This page tells you all about accountability. http://www.kickstarter.com/help/faq/kickstarter+basics#Acco *Kickstarter does not guarantee projects or investigate a creator's ability to complete their project. On Kickstarter, backers (you!) ultimately decide the validity and worthiness of a project by whether they decide to fund it. * AND even if kickstarter says the company holding the kickstarter is responsible, you cant get blood out of a turnip or force someone to pay. They had a video game kickstarter where afterwards the company ran out of money during development. Noone will be getting anything out of that one.
  15. This is for the whiners and complainers out there and not necessarily all for the op so don't think I'm picking on you specifically. ( I dont do that kind of thing) I think some things need to be put into perspective here. When you pledged for this kickstarter, you agreed to a certain dollar value pledge. In return for this Reaper said they would try to make some things happen, ie a ridiculous amount of figures for a comparatively small dollar amount. 18000 orders later they are doing exactly what they said they would try to do. There was no guarantee. This not the same as going online to Amazon or someplace else and placing an order. There is a misunderstanding about kickstarters out there for those that dont regularly support them, and this is that they are guaranteed to provide the goal rewards if funded. You are supporting an idea that you feel is good and deserves your money. By doing this you are using your judgement on how the company performs normally, and trusting that you will get something out of it. Because of how this works, pledge rewards are secondary. There is no guarantee for any of this. It even says this on the kickstarter home page. Ask the people out there that have pledged large dollar amounts to different kickstarters and then either through mismanagement or unforeseen problems, the product was never finished, and noone received any money back, nor will they ever receive anything. What about kickstarters that did way less than this one (all of them except 3 or 4 in kickstarters history), that people are still waiting for figures for after a year to a year and a half, and have no clue if they will get any, other than a weak promise from the company that maybe they may get something in the future if the stars align and they get more funding from somewhere else? I respect anyones right to speak out, but please educate yourselves before doing so and gain a little perspective. Reaper is one of the few good guy companies left in the market, and they care about customer service almost to a fault sometimes. They could just be ignoring complaints and keeping us in the dark like a certain company from the grim darkness of the far future does on a daily basis. Thankfully this is not the case,as Reaper bryan is always on here giving us updates. Complaining about having to wait extra time for something that only had an estimated shipping date to start with seems like a half baked thought process to me. Cheer up, we'll all have them soon! And on another note! I ordered everything except paints and cases, in many cases double, thats right 2 BIG K's, and I regret NOTHING!!!!!!!!
  16. Everyone at Reaper is doing a great job. Its sad that we live in such a self entitlement/ instant gratification society that people can't seem to be happy about the fantastically great deal that they were a part of. Instead its all about me. MEMEMEMEMEMEMEME! I get so sick of hearing people whining about how things weren't done to their expectations or how because of Reapercon and the shipping situation, Reaper now has the worst customer service in the market. I get the feeling from some of the posts here and on other forums that many of those people would never be satisfied about anything. In some cases if you gave them their order for free, they would still complain it took till May to get it. For those out there that have any doubt about if they are part of the self entitlement group, one clue is that you feel that you have the right or you have the need to decide when a business can schedule a con (that is held every year by the way) or to decide the best way for them to ship their products, even though you have nothing to do with said company. What hubris. Try telling a company like GW to do something. its not going to happen. Theyll laugh at you in your face. This company shouldn't be treated any differently just because they are smaller. A good rule of thumb is to treat people like you want to be treated. Grow up, you made an investment. As a responsible investor, if you have questions you look for the answers. You don't expect someone to spoon feed you little bites of information every few days. You take responsibility for your investment. God forbid that you may have to join another forum or check facebook, but if you are concerned then you have to do these things. Stop blaming other for laziness. They aren't your slaves and they have a ton of work to get done, which by the way is being handled fantastically. So all the entitled people out there need to put their big boy or girl pants on, grow up and take responsibility for something. Rant ended. I now return you to your regularly scheduled program.

  18. True story and also if theyre not laser prints, I would consider coating it with some kind of matte spray or brush sealant. Although that just depends on how humid it gets where you are, and yes with a little care they will last along time.
  19. I use a color laser printer and ultrawhite cover stock and they look awesome. Don't use the cheap malwart cardstock, because your terrain will look terrible. If you take your time the buildings come out great. I love paper terrain for the rich textures and ease of build, but then again I have been doing paper models for 9 years now. Its still fun and pretty easy for the beginner though and way cheaper than a full resin or plaster set. Plus I can make as much as I want and dont have to pay more!
  20. NIce post! it basically lets us know everything. A+ for communication and hopefully you guys can see the light at the end of the tunnel.
