    Thx!

    I will patiently wait.

    But I've decided to not back Bones IV.

     

    I don't mind waiting but now I see minis in the store that I pledged for and I have to wait longer than if I would order them now directly.

    Sure, price is a thing then, but still.

    It is a bit of a let down to see people being able to buy stuff that was in the KS and backers still haven't received them.

    Sorry if that sounds negative, but this is a bit too much.

     

    I'll be waiting, almost reached the point where I no longer care.

     

    In the US and have had my Bones 3 for a while (I forget exactly) but completely understand your frustration. When Bones 3 was announced as delayed but they were still teasing Bones 4...why? Then I have to absolutely agree that announcing Bones 4 when a lot of ROW backers haven't gotten their Bones 3 is pretty crass.

     

    I'm guessing it has to do with a nice influx of 1-2 million dollars every couple years that someone higher ranking at Reaper doesn't want to delay too much no matter how bad it looks. I posted a long time ago that they seem to have a problem over promising and under-delivering with their Kicktarters. Bones 2 was delayed and yet they still promised a faster turnaround time for Bones 3. Like "we learned from our mistakes so it will be faster next time". Well, that's nice to hope, but as someone who's worked in manufacturing a long time that's not usually how it goes. You always *think* you can do it faster/cheaper next time but rarely does it happen so.

     

    I backed other Kickstarters around the same time that still haven't delivered yet, but they never promised they would by this time, so people aren't angry. I agree it's a double whammy to say EU shipping will happen in 2-3 weeks and then fail on that as well. Then offer Bones 3 stuff in the store and announce Bones 4. I think it is either a profit motive or at best them trying to get the logistics of a KS over before Reapercon. But either way it's completely unfair. And I agree apologizing and saying "sorry we'll do better next time" is equivalent to saying "well we overcharged you by $20 but it's okay because we'll put it towards the next customer's order".

     

    In my opinion, Bones IV is coming way too soon on the heels of Bones 3. There is such a thing as saturation and anticipation. I still love Reaper and will continue to buy from them for years, but this was all poorly handled for a company that's been through this multiple times already. As a US backer I would not be opposed to some incentive to ROW backers (maybe discount on online shipping or something that a US backer wouldn't care as much about?) but again I suspect whatever high level guy wants that sweet KS cash isn't going to eat cost and it'll just be the poor lower level guys actually talking to us that say sorry over and over again and take the flack for someone else.

  2. Hope the preview map means there will be more NPCs (townspeople) and more town related terrain (that cart we never saw that was teased in Bones 3).

     

    That dragon turtle looks pretty near exactly like the dragon tortoise to me (same sculptor and everything, right?) So does not excite me. But the base looks cool.

    Just to see if anyone's seeing anything I'm not - I've got an issue with the paint not being sent to me, and they've just reiterated that I need to include the part number for the missing "piece".  As best as I can tell, the paint doesn't have a part number - does anyone see a part number I don't?

    (It's half of paint set A that was missing, if it matters.)

     

     

    I have two boxes for paint set A. One is labelled as "09596 x 6" and the other as "09597 x 6". Both have those numbers (09596/09597) on the bar codes for the boxes as well. I don't know if that helps you or not but thought I'd offer the info since I have both boxes.

  4. Can anyone provide a rough estimate of how long we have to report any missing pieces/parts?

     

    I went through the box already and confirmed I have all the groups/sets and extras I've ordered but wondering how soon I need to inventory the sets or make sure none of my assembly pieces are missing anything.

     

    To be honest, there are still larger pieces from Bones II that I haven't gotten around to assembling, but I might as well set some sort of goal for myself this time around.

  5. Got these guys last winter. Think they are super cute. Huz wanted them more robotic and less like tree ornaments so I kept them pretty standard. The bases are from Secret Weapon. I didn't know until I opened them recently that I had an extra of one, but no extra arms, so he's a little more broken than the others. Thanks for reading!

  6. Painted this guy up for a friend to use for his character. He wanted him with short hair and without a beard. I tried to cut off the beard without it looking too weird but I'm not sure it worked out well. Anyways, that's why it's not painted. Chopping off his ponytail seemed to work out better. Thanks for reading!

    Kinda disappointed I won't be in the first batch or even the 2nd it seems as I ordered hex and grid.  Even if they are the most common parchment color.  So 6 more months of waiting.  ::(:

     

    Think I am in the same boat. But I'm just not going to even check to see what I got. It'll be too disappointing to verify. I can't remember, I know we were going back and forth a lot. So I'll just try to ignore it for another 6 months.

    This just posted in the comments section:

     

    "So, just a heads up / sneak peek before the official statement---We got the mats, and they look good. Magnet strength is perfect, they are the right mix of bendy and firm, the backs are non-slip, and so on. We're commencing with a lot of erasing-related tests right away, too. Stay tuned!"

     

    Thanks I always miss their inbetween updates since they seem to very rarely use the KS update mechanism to pass information on. Am still hopeful about the quality of the product.

    Really? Once I saw the pugs I was sold! 

     

    The first time I saw the photo for those I thought they were pigs and was so excited. I was bummed later when I saw it was several pugs. I am not anti-dog, but more farm animals would have been cooler. I thought they were really expressive little spunky little pigs which would have been so cool.

  10. Had some mummies left over from Bones 2 (I think) that needed to be painted up. These were surprisingly quick and easy to drybrush. Basecoated with brown liner then used the stained ivory / yellowed bone / creamy ivory triad. Thanks for reading!
