  1. New material looks pretty great! Lots of good stuff. Haven't had time to open the core yet, let alone start an inventory, but it's all so fun to look at! The new Bonesium seems prone to shattering, though, and I'm seeing some problems where air got into the mold. Stone giant missing the middle of his arm, the chicken hut missing part of a doorframe (and some of the corners broke off and escaped). Big angry elephant from Lost Valley had his club snap. In a few years, when I'm done with the inventory, I'll shoot Reaper an email about it! We're missing a few other things besides (wra
  2. The bones are here! THE BONES ARE HERE! I'm not allowed to open them until the significant other can be there too, though. She's got work in a show for class tonight. When we get back, though... that's when the mayhem begins! Oh god oh god where are all these bones going to go...?!
  3. My understanding is that as soon as the backordered minis are in the warehouse, Reaper will begin fulfilling orders that were delayed. Probably by wave but I don't think that was specifically confirmed. That means other orders in whatever the current wave is at that time will be delayed while they catch back up. So no, if you have a delayed wave 1, you won't need to wait for wave 14 to finish up to get your stuff shipped. Edit: wow, I don't think I've ever been ninja'd four times before! A new personal record.
  4. My slightly inebriated bones have finally finished their distillery tour and have left Lexington! Good thing Reaper got them a designated shipper.
  5. Me too! Woohoo! They're still on an extended tour of Lexington, though. I hope they don't show up drunk. Google tells me distillery tours are pretty popular around there.
  6. Since the whole thing is translucent I'd be lying if I said I hadn't considered finding a way to insert some LED illumination around the ring, myself. But I also know I'm lazy and I have approximately 20 minis to paint (not counting the 20 more I'm getting from Bones 4 in a couple days) and I'm pretty sure it's not going to happen... I bid thee: be not lazy! Not like me! Do something awesome!
  7. Looks like we're at a tiny bit under $1.60 per miniature. It's a pretty good deal.
  8. My bones were last seen in Lexington (Kentucky). They haven't been checked in anywhere since very early Saturday morning, but that's no surprise. Hmmm. I should figure out my cost per Bone.
  9. Sounds like it's time to get a storage unit. And then move one of your existing rooms worth of furniture into it so you can put your bones in that room.
  10. I'd heard about Baba Yaga ages ago but I didn't really learn anything about Russian folklore until a GM I was playing for asked all of his players to create characters based on Russian fairy tales. Turned out to be harder than I expected. I mean, everyone's basically named Ivan... The way that Russian folk tales in particular use the same characters (Ivan, Vasilisa, Baba Yaga, Koschei) in different stories like they were actors was really interesting.
  11. I wonder if Ron is trying to prove that he really, truly packed some boxes.
  12. If you start getting really suspicious, try checking (or making) your UPS.com account. I'm not sure how many backers ended up like me, but I haven't gotten an email from Reaper, my account in the pledge manager doesn't list any shipping information, but UPS.com is telling me I've got something on the way anyway.
  13. You can find lock-in date in the pledge manager. Go to "completed orders" and look at the bottom right of each order to see your lock-in date for that particular order. For lock-in time, you need to check your email and see about when you got your confirmation email. It won't be exact, but it's the best we've got.
  14. It does not appear to. Let me see if I can find and quote the numbers on my phone...
  15. Just now, mine have gotten to Tennessee! (Still have a ways to go, though...)
  16. Looks like they had 16,045 orders remaining as of this morning. With 16,884 being the "original" total that means they got 839 orders out yesterday and the day before.
  17. Are you sure it was you, and not @Crowley poking it with his stick? Crowley pokes things. He's productive. I just find new ways to break 'em.
  18. Someone must have poked it--not Crowley, I guess! He's all done with poking--and it's got a real number where Orders Remaining is! Currently 15851.
  19. The shipping tracker is moving! I think it forgot how many orders it had, but it's moving!
  20. Our bones are moving! UPS is updating. Looks like those of you who thought the truck hadn't arrived were right. Still haven't gotten any notification from Reaper though. Nothing in email, nothing on the pledge manager. Man! You'd think once Bryan left his code would be safe but no, I keep finding new ways to break it even after he's gone...
  21. Hmmmm. My Bones order appears to have been "un-shipped." UPS is now telling me they don't have it and don't know when they'll get it. I wonder how that happened... probably missed the truck or something.
  22. We don't, although we have hypotheses. Things seem to be shipping just fine without the tracker's involvement, though.
  23. You could always paint a roc up like a rock. Something sedimentary might look cool with the various feathers. Then glue it to the hut...
  24. To be fair, Reaper Giants are larger than the D&D Giants of that era. Even early 5E Giants were about the same height as Reaper Giants, it was the "Storm Kings Thunder" prepaint set that supersized D&D Giants again (though all mentioned renditions were easily Huges in 5E terms) I seem to remember the latest batch of Reaper giants being more tailored to D&D 3 / Pathfinder sizes since the original sculpts were too small.
