  1. Yup, I love getting new models but it's a pain for me to add them to the worksheet. I have asked CAVBOSS for an up-to-date model list so I can do it once and not make it a task everytime something new is introduced. He said they are working on it and would hit me up when he can but I have a feeling he wants to keep certain things secret until they are revealed. We will see.

    I have added a short description in the top post to help deal with the problem. Cutting and pasting around the new models will work for now but I suspect that there will be a major change to the model list at some point.

  2. Some of you may remember the worksheet I created during the first Kickstarter. As someone new to CAV, I made it to help myself understand a little about force construction and to plan my purchases in the Pledge Manager. It helped me a lot and some others also seemed to benefit as well.

     

    I have been working on revising the sheet for CAV: Strike Operations II. I am not 100% confident that there aren't mistakes but I'm putting it out there for review. As always, error reporting is really helpful and constructive criticism is welcome.

     

     

    A few notes:

     

    • The Colors on the model list are irrelevant at this point. Those are remnants from the first Kickstarter.
    • DT and TV are completely off after revisions to the game. If Cavboss has a new list or if anybody else would care to help with editing, those can be fixed.
    • The "Force and Squad Construction" tab only pertains to models from the 1st Kickstarter. There is already an official CAV: SO force construction program so I'm not sure if I need to do more here but if experienced players would like to submit their forces using the new models, I will consider adding to that tab.
    • This file was designed in Excel and should probably be viewed in Excel. Google viewer is only passable and I've heard that the layout and many of the advanced functions just aren't right in OpenOffice. Download the file and open it in Excel if you can.

     

    **One important chance from the original file: Add models in sets of 2 or 4 by putting a "1" in the options column.**

     

    Update: August 11th, 2016 (08:31 JST)

    • Updated as far as I can until we receive an updated Model List with the new models
    • Reworked model highlight Colors to signify models introduced in KS1 (Light Blue), KS2 (Tan) or offered in both (Light Purple)
    • Added "The Almirithil Principality" as its own faction
    • Seperated Wisper and Ripper to "Faction: other" and changed task to "Specialist"
    • Added a "Specialist" Category to the "Total Forces" tally (i.e. the number of models in your order)
    • Removed dead links to metal and added links to Bonesium versions on Reaper Store
    • Fixed "SA: Bulky" changes based on Data Card List

    Future updates:

    • Add DT and TV for all models (waiting on a new Model List)

     

    ***For those using this worksheet and updating as we new models are introduced, beware***

    You can copy and paste the columns from your older worksheet. Just be aware of new models being introduced during this Kickstarter. You need to copy everything up to the new model from your old worksheet and paste it into the new one. Then copy the remaining numbers from your old worksheet and paste it just after the new model in the new worksheet. I will try to list all changes to the structure below to make it easier for you.

    Is it just me, or do things like the temple dragon, and some others like that seem perfect for an expansion set? I wonder if they are planning on having expansion sets (bear in mind that even though I sculpt for Reaper, I have NO idea as to what is coming outside of the things I've sculpted for them; and even then I have no idea what is for the KS and what will be in metal at a future date).

     

    I haven't seen much talk about this but here is a quote from the FAQ that got a serious update about a day after the KS went live.

     

    "What is a Core Set Expansion?

    Green items are part of the Core Set Pledge and the Core Set grows as the Core Set stretch goal are met. 

    Orange items are buy-in, add-ons that you must add more to your pledge to get. More buy-in options are revealed as their stretch goal are met. 

    The other colors items are a $50 add-on that grows like the Core Set, but has it's own stretch goals independent of the Core Set and not included in the Core Set. Nor, will the Core Set have the Expansions' miniatures added to it."

  4. I dunno, the sprites haven't always been matching up with stretch goals. I mean, the double-unlock for mouslings and paints was the brown blobby thing. :)

     

    I would love more slimes, though!! ^_^

     

    Huzzah!

    --OneBoot :D

    Well, oozes do split into 2 from slashing attacks. The next sprite looks like it could be an ooze as well. Any bets on whether it's another double unlock at $1mil? Perhaps Paint Set B and another paid add-on?

  5. Looking at the game map, anyone else notice Player Two is now in play and that several items have been gathered on the bottom of the screen?

     

    Really wondering the significance behind these items: Two potions, sword, book, lantern.

     

    And hooray for (eventually) unlocking new paints. A shadow/base/highlight NMM gold, metallics, liners and washes.

    Looks like the "Player 2" score is the difference between the last stretch goal and the next one. Not sure about the potions and such.

    So they use the shipping waves to promote the early bird pledge (and with the two days for each wave, the only reason for you want to get in the first wave is bragging rights...)

    They only shipped the waves out back to back and at an accelerated pace because they were late. Had everything been in on time, what makes you think Reaper would not have abided by the X waves a month schedule listed in the pledge levels? The effort and labor to ship everything out at the speed they have done it at for the first two KS was not free to Reaper. If Reaper gets the product on time for bones 3, a lot of late pledgers will be SCREAMING mad when they find out the timetable will get followed.
    Actually, I believe there was word that they would maintain the accelerated shipping pace for Bones III but it is buried somewhere in this forum. Guess we will officially find out in 6 1/2 hours.

  7. There is one figure I NEED in Bones. I paint one for my friend's birthday every year and every year his sword snaps off at some point. I know he would suffer from flimsy-sword syndrome but it's better than broken-sword. He would also be infinitely easier to re-base.

    He's already been mentioned a couple of times but... I'm begging.

  10.  

    Yup, my pledge manager page has also changed but it just says Shipped: UPS and links to the blank UPS tracking site. Unfortunately, there are no tracking numbers and no other information.

    If we have passed your Wave, then there is likely a problem with the database. Normally i would say e-mail help but that box has been inundated lately with over 3,000 emails.

     

    you may for the time being contact me via PM and I will do what I can to fix it.  Note that I *will* require your Order Number to be able to do anything at all, so please include that in the PM.

     

    Thanks Bryan. PM sent.

  11. How's this for Bones II excitement. I'm Wave 1 ROW(FPO). It will be delivered to my friend's address and he will pass it off to me.

     

    Anxiously awaiting the mail I know should arrive today so when I wake up 30 minutes ago (7:00 am Japan time) I am overjoyed to find something from Kickstarter/Reaper in my In Box. *Pours a cup of coffee and prepares himself* Noooo, it's the mail reminding everyone to lock in.

     

    Not more than 10 seconds later an email arrives directly from Reaper with a USPS tracking number! The actual mail. Drum roll...

     

    The first words I see are "DELIVERED" It took me at leas a minute before I realized that they sent my CAV:SO tracking number. WahWah!

     

    Not even annoyed. It's actually kind of funny. Way to build the tension, Reaper. Now for the real tracking number. Message sent.

     

    Guess I'm not alone!

  12. I'm in the same boat as many, Wave 1 ROW with no mail from Reaper or UPS. I'm not that worried. I'll wait for Thursday to see if the email notifications get sent out.

     

    I am wondering if any other APO/FPO backers can confirm the method used to ship. Is it standard mail (30-45 days) or Priority (7-9 days)? Thanks.

  13. **Minor Update**

     

    • Added more Example Forces from Tailspinner (one using infantry not available in the KS, another is a Merc Force)

     

     

    I just noticed how large the file is getting with the new Force Construction page so I added a link to a Lite Version in the first post of this thread. It is the original version of the spreadsheet without the second page showing example forces. Should make downloading considerably faster for those who don't need the second page.

     

    I would love more Merc Forces if you have examples. Hit me up if you have something to add.
