    Reaper Bones 5 : Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    Yesterday on Reaper’s fireside chat, ReaperJon answered a question about the boat and said it would be revealed next week... so it sounds like we will get a chance to throw money at it soon. I am not die hard about anything in this ks... but have no doubts that all the expansions will be fully realized by the end.

    Everything in the kickstarter is very nice. I can see benefit in owning everything.... However, as others have said... my need this time is just not there. There are a couple gems that i love... but i am undecided on getting them now or waiting until retail. The Spider, the blue dragon, the kids, the mammoth. - Love em The villagers, the troll bridge, the war machines. - Great. i want em The other dragons, catfolk, other bits and bobs. - They are nice, I like em. But, My main love and want in the ship, and baby ship. If those are something that turn out to be reasonably priced and in a material i like, then the above stuff will likely come during the PM stage and be bought through this KS... but if teh Ship turns out not to be viable for me, then the rest of teh stuff will end up being bought at retail, and I will likely just drop out. That is not to say I dont lke the stuff or dont like reaper, I am just not super behind any of the stuff this time. Do really like that spider though...

    @Glitterwolf regarding the Ship. Jon said it is still undecided about Translucent, Solid or both... so still in the air.

    I think the reason Starwars worked for us, is our game was the edge of the empire stuff. We were low life grifters and bad people so it didnt feel like we were bogged down in Starwars. My character was an ex-gang member and sort of crazy... didnt feel like we were just walking in teh foot steps of the movie characters. Starfinder though. I tried to enjoy it. I like Pathfinder. But i just couldnt get in to it. It didnt help that almost every monster in teh adventure path tried to inprgnate one of us with some parasite or mutant bebe...

    My group has enjoyed both Starwars and Starfinder.... but we are more of a fantasy group... Still some of the chrnoscope stuff has great crossover appeal even for fantasy.

    Yeah, I think every child in Maryland goes on a field trip to Fort McHenry, the Shot tower, Betsy Ross's house and the Constellation. And now i don't live far from John Wilkes Booth house here in Bel Air. Though as an adult I have passed these things, I havent been to them in 30 years...

    With my eyes continuing to get worse..,.. My last eye exam i had bleeding in my Macula but not Macular degeneration... but the Doc did not want to prescribe glasses until my next eye exam in 4 months to see if the swelling goes down... I have not really painted in a couple months and the last things I did paint I did not enjoy... So, With the ship. I think having the ship in bones color looks fine for playing. But if I have to put effort in to painting on it just to be able to use it in a game, that is a big turn off. Sure i could probably spray paint in brown and dry brush or apply a wash or something... but that's more effort and will still leave it looking not great just to be able to use it at all. And if all the things involved like canons are also translucent then it would require more than a simple spray, unless I am spending effort to have brown cannons an ship. I am happy that people who want translucent ships will get them, but admit that I am disappointed. Who knows though, i may still get one if its clear, but i doubt it. Wagons, that is something i want though... Unless of course people want ghost wagons and they become translucent too... or ghost catapults... or ghost greeks...

    Twitch made it sound like they may only do ship in translucent... but you can always paint it if you dont want translucent... That means it will be a pass from me. Not confirmed yet, but that comment did not sound promising...

    Well, April 2021 is the estimated delivery date. So, maybe if you contact them after that they will still try to fufill but cant guarantee they will have everything on hand to be able to deliver. ESTIMATED DELIVERYApr 2021

    The showed a graphic that had Yephima and said Greek expansion 2... I wasn’t planning on getting the Greek expansion so this probably means I have to wait til retail for her. But who knows what I will add in the PM. they also said they will talk to Ed about a cannon pack. I am excited for a canon pack.

    well, currently... if the ship is solid, and... * under $100. Then I will get 2 * under $150. Then I will get 1 * $60 (I can dream!) then I will get 3 other than that not much else has interested me in the ks. I may get the blue dragon to make in to a linnorn. And the child heroes... I like the dark sea expansion but the stuff I like in it (merfolk and sehaughin) I would need several for a good encounter and can’t pay $50 x 5 sets to get them. oh if they offer cannons for individual sale, I will get a bunch extra for my play Mobil and fisher price ships.

    I share this feeling. I may not paint the ship for a long while. If it’s in Grey I can still use it effectively until I do. If it’s clear, I can’t and it would not have any detail until it gets painted. So, unfortunately if it is only available in clear plastic then I would pass too.
