  1.  

    My Bones are here! I need a moment to compose myself...

     

    Edit: And I'm already missing a figure. One of the bags for NOVAs wasn't sealed at the bottom, so I got an empty bag. Who do I need to murder- I mean email to get this fixed?

     

     

    He was trained in escape/evasion and took the initiative. Even as we speak he is slowly making his way to the objective.

    That would be funny... Except its the girl NOVA. She's super sneaky. I think I'll name her Agent 99.

     

    [email protected] has all the answers. I would inventory the entire collection to make sure you get all missing pieces in one go.

    I'm working on the inventory. I have to go to bed (yay, graveyards), but I'll take care of it before Saturday.

  2. I think we're going to need a bigger thread...

     

    For content, it does look like there's going to be several different versions of the same thing. I look forward to seeing how it all turns out.

     

    EDIT: It might also mean that someone will end up taking the best ideas from all of the systems and turn out something perfect. Or, we'll steal the good ideas other people have and use them in our own games.

  3. Well, The Faceless King is going for classic HeroQuest while I'm building off of D20. Look at it this way, you'll get TWO systems to use your minis for.

     

    But mine is better because I'm going to use the ChronoScope stuff. ::P:

  4. While I was unhappy that my Bones didn't show up in March for my birthday, I am perfectly happy with how things are working out. I do feel bad for folks who ordered tons of stuff and hope it shows up soon.

     

    I also have respect for Reaper for communicating what they have and for doing what they've done. I worked in a warehouse for a few weeks and that was enough for me.

  5. Well, my new front stoop is done and ready for my Bones.

     

    BTW, my UPS guy drops the package off and does not even ring the bell. Last night he droped off an air compressor in the rain and just left it on the stoop. Luckily I heard him start the van and drive away.

    That's not bad as some of the USPS or UPS drivers I get at my place. I had one USPS guy throw a package on my stoop from a few feet away. Lucky for him, it was just books. But, because he didn't even knock (I was home and asleep at the time), it got stolen by a neighbor's husband. That was a whole ordeal, let me tell you... They also seem to say "Screw it" and just leave packages with my manager. Or how I moved from one apartment to another and some place I ordered from sent something to the old address (maybe 200-300 feet away) and the mail carrier took it there. I also love when they put packages under my doormat. Yeah, because that's not obvious.

     

    I let my manager know I was expecting a large package on Wednesday. She's pretty good about catching them if they leave something on my doorstep.

  6. I was annoyed when THAC0 came around and wrung myself into knots trying to make sense of it.

     

    Of course, now we can all look back on it and laugh.

     

    It would probably be one of those ones that start out slow and low and build up through hyperventilation into a despairing mad cackle.

    Don't forget the nervous twitch under the eye before the laughter starts.

  7. I have a stuff all over my place that needs painting. Thankfully, my Closet of Gaming is mostly things like terrain, things to make more terrain, painting supplies and the like... But, that's because most of my unpainted stuff is in smallish boxes...

  8. Ahh yes, Highschool, when real men could figure out THACO, and I got kicked out of gym class permanently. Good days

     

    God, I do not miss THAC0. At all.

     

    I'm also for turning 11 again when I get my Bones. I'm going to unbox them at a friend's game store, so I'm sure it'll go over well there.

  9. While I haven't gotten my Bones yet, they do look to be way more 'bendy' than normal plasics used on the tabletop. I don't think 'Bonesium' can really support any kind of large metal or other heavier materials attached to it. Sure, a hand with a weapon isn't going to cause an issue to a 32mm guy, but wings on a foot tall dragon are going to fall out in no time.

     

    Also, Bones are designed to be painted as-is; metal is not. Plus, Bones don't take too well to some primers. It sounds a tad too complex to be worth it.

    From KS comments: Captain Pete about 1 hour ago

    I just got my email and I ordered Vampire, case, and 3 Vampire add-ons (1 undead horde, IMEF and 2 NOVA corps).

    Hah. I just created an account to join in on the conversation and someone has beaten me to my own punch.

     

    As of yet, I have no tracking data for the package but I expect it won't update until tomorrow.

    To update, I have tracking data. It looks like 4 days shipping, which I imagine to be standard for most of these Bones orders.
