  1. Please do me a favor and don't make these awesome. I am not planning on getting the Greek Expansion, and if these turn out really cool, then I will either have to rob a bank for another $50... or deal with the trauma of missing out on them.

    Laserdreamworks_dot_com also sells a number of sizes of cannons and carronades.  I can attest to decent prices and excellent casts.  Most of the guns are multi-piece (gun and carrage) to allow for different elevations.  I have a number of their ships and all of them are fully armed with my prize being a 24 gun frigate with 18 24 pounders and 6 carronades.  All are very much in scale with Reaper figures

    Wow, lots of good stuff here. The ships look nice. I would be intimidated to get one though based on my assembly skills. :(

     

    the Cannons are pretty nice

  3. Blood and Plunder also sell packs of swivel guns. They are probably closer to scale with reaper stuff (28-32mm). I bought a couple packs of their light cannons. 
     

    they also sell ships but the bigger ones are on the expensive side compared to reaper. 
     

    So I looked up “armed pinnace” I think the brine wind small ship would be perfect. 1 regular cannon fixed facing forward, and 2-4 rear swivel guns.

    So I have a problem.  Just went through, I want all 5 chromatics, the pirate ship, brinewind, fan favorites, the core set, the siege weapons, and a few other things.  That comes to about 600, I only did bones 4 beforehand and that hit 350. If I spend that much on miniatures, the adult half of my brain is going to torment me for months, even if I spread it out.  What's a guy to do?

    Ok. So assume you have to add $600 more to your pledge (since I don’t know how much you have already put in.) we will also assume the pledge manager is open for 9 months since we don’t know exactly how long it will be open. 
     

    so. That’s $66.66 dollars a month. Or $16.67 per week or $2.38 a day.
     

    So, if you skip a coffee or lunch or not see a couple movies, etc., it is not that big of a burden. I am about the same. I think I want about $760 in loot now... and spent $120 so far... so only need $640 ish more... so no Chinese food at my Friday night pathfinder games. That’s $20/ week right there.

  6. Thoughts,

     

    *The pre-estimate for shipping is a lot more than what it was last go round. I was at $960. and my shipping was around $13. This time I am at a third that total and 3x the shipping. No really a complaint as the shipping is still not bad though.

     

    * I wasnt interested in as much this time. I do like the encounters. They are more outside the standard and i guess thats why.

     

    * I ennjoyed the reaper twitch, but also missed the reaper interaction in the comments. I avoided the comments for the most part this time, but did chime in occasionaly.

     

    * I liked the social goals and what not. 

     

    * I really dislike all the translucents. Personal taste. 

     

    * I also dislike the goofy just to be goof minis, like the dire cabbage. 

     

    * Overall, this was a fun campaign. The ship being included sealed it for me. Hope we get more ships next time. 

     

     

    Well, what I am thinking so far:

    I find this line of reasoning bewildering, considering the much larger number of huge fantasy mini companies that Reaper competes with (successfully).  Why is it ok for them to compete with the likes of WizKids, GF9, Games Workshop, Iron Wind, Privateer, etc. but not ok for them to compete with Warlord, Victory Force, etc.?

    My guess is because reapers customers are generally in the fantasy market. Or at least the largest segment is.

     

     

    like Burger King makes french fries because that is what their customers expect, even though countless others make french fries... but Burger King doesn’t make tacos because it’s not what they are known for, and others already do... or at least they shouldn’t make tacos....

     

    or remember the MC pizza or the mclobster? Yeah I’m hungry again. What was I saying?

    I haven't read it, but I assume it's great as I love his other books. It also reminds me of the mummy 3, and Uncharted yeti scenes. 

    I haven’t read the book, but the movie was pretty good. Tim Curry, Ernie Hudson. Cast was pretty good too. 
     

    Congo, that is... and Amy is a good gorilla.

  9. I want to participate in ship naming, but its either something that would be universally popular involving a Reaper name (and thus already suggested a lot at this point) or something personal and really only of interest to the one who suggested it.

     

    But, here we go.

     

    The Second hand lady. -   She has been on the seas a while and under other crews... but she is still strong and full of dignity.

    The Second Star, or Second Star on the right-   I like it since the Falling Star, was the first, but ours never has to grow up.

    The Raven-  Go Baltimore

    The Adventure Path -  Like Royal adventure but more rpg themed
