  1. different strokes I guess. For me the elk, the giant weasel, the snakefolk, the dragon, the basilisk, the fat imp, the cloaker, the twigfolk, the undead zombie are all ace. And kobolds beat zombies by a long mile. Then we got boulderkin, wolves, spell effects, cat folk … heck even the kid heroes are at least *different* and they come with familiars so that is a nice bonus.
  2. This is my view. I don’t want more adventurers unless they are unusual and underrepresented figures. Or at least female. Like, I just don’t need another bare chested male human barbarian. I think having a core set that has more monsters and weird things and then an adventurers set would fill out both needs. Or maybe it is time to retire the core and lean harder into the expansions. Have the “core” pledge be two expansions of your choice or 1 expansion and 2 encounters. Then can split things up thematically a bit more. Can still do a “fan favourites” or whatever that is a mixed bag.
  3. yeah fae set, mongrelfolk and ants are the only thing I am excited about this time and I am feeling pretty salty that the ant queen isn’t going to be available to buy separately. I really don’t know how they managed to make the core set so meh this time around. I know different folks have different feelings but there is very little in it that I am tempted by. I think probably a bunch of male humanoid figures is not helping here. the fae set is really ace. Unless one of the other expansions is as good, I don’t see myself spending much this round, which is just as well.
  4. I agree. Honestly happy I didn’t end up pledging for this model back in the day though I was sorely tempted. I think Reaper is in some level of denial about the properties of their Bones plastic sometimes. This one should have been obvious to notice issues before production, and if not then, after KS fulfillment. Dear Reaper: please please please please DO NOT put out figures on spindly legs in bones plastic! Especially not in softer formulations!
  5. I can hang a picture on a plaster wall without resulting in massive holes… sometimes… in reality I’d say my overall ability is low
  6. this. the taxes I can live with but the brokerage fees are so unnecessary and unfair. Really feel like reaper could have showed a little more care and empathy for their canadian customers here. As for the updates, I just don’t think it is reasonable to ask backers to watch multiple live streams etc to get info. If you have the time to do an hour long livestream it is hard to understand why you can’t put out more regular updates thru KS. It feels a bit rude to backers to expect them to sift through social media posts and videos to know what is going on. If you want to stick to regular updates that’s fine but then why reveal stuff elsewhere? It feels a bit unfair to be left in the dark when there is info available. I just really don’t get it, it feels like video streams would take a lot more time to make than emails.
  7. The pledge manager would likely be open till then, just do a small pledge and add more
  8. Yeah, WHY. I am sorry but please for the love of god don't make videos more than 10 minutes long unless you're like... nintendo, and every minute is polished and bursting with news. I have ADHD and I really dislike Reaper's move to video over text coms.
  9. I wouldn't mind them upping it so much if they hadn't upped it SO MUCH that it knocks us over the customs threshold. That really sucks Reaper. If they had even kept it to $70 there would be more chance we would be able to slide on through. Worst is you get charged mostly for the collecting of the charges for stuff around $100. Yeah I feel that. Being a tabletop gamer in Canada who really doesn't want PDFs vs books is... a very expensive hobby. In retrospect I am sort of relieved pathfinder is pretty much done... I no longer have incentive to back RPG books on KS really... that was costing me a fortune. Yeah, most of my orders have been impulse buys because of the mini of the month tbh. This threshold removes most of that temptation.
  10. seriously. I keep feeling regretful about figures I missed this year and it makes me realize I will never reach my financial goals with this promotion going on. Also a dwarf sounds awesome for the november mini.
  11. -Kitsune -Tengu -Catfolk -Dragonborn -Heroic ratlings (not wererats) -Gnomes In metal please. And, for the kitsune and tengu especially could there be more variety in classes? Like, not-samurai type please? Kitsune druid, Tengu Bard, etc. Agreeing with everyone that there needs to be more dragonborn - and not reptus. And catfolk are seriously underepresented. As are ratlings that are not wererats. Also, I am surprised at this but there really aren't many halflings and gnome minis in reaper's stock.
  12. I basically bought stoneskull for the behir alone and I'm also disappointed with the looks of it to be honest. Looks like I'm going to have to shell out for the prepaint. It's weird cause usually reaper bones are better at scaling big creatures. I also don't like that it's mashed so much into the broccoli base. On the bright side the froghemoth looks way better than I thought it would. You win some you lose some. Thanks. I sent you a PM before seeing this, so it can be safely ignored. I appreciate the response, I really do.
  13. I'm trying to be patient! I promise. I know you are all working hard over there. I have no doubt you're going constantly. Sorry for getting cranky. I really didn't mean to gripe, but getting told to check my spam folders again kind of put me over the edge there.
  14. "We're looking into it" isn't really an answer. Not when it's not followed up with further information. I expect if someone is actually looking into to something that they will communicate what as been found/the plan for action when they do look into it. If you meant "we'll look into it in three weeks" I would actually have preferred folks to say so. It's standard practice as a customer to ask a follow up question if your order still hasn't appeared and no plans for sending it have been communicated. I waited more than a week before asking for further information. My order was messed up and missed. Twice. First with other Canadian orders and then with my wave order. I don't think it's villainous to request information on it.
  15. I sent an email on more than a week ago and haven't heard boo. I religiously check all my folders (I've got several kickstarters in fulfillment) - the address they have is exactly the same as the one they had when they sent me hecklemeyer and styx the other month. At this point, as a customer, I shouldn't be asked to guess at what I've done wrong. Because the problem is not on my end. I'm not blaming anyone, it's just sort of a bummer and I'd like news about what's up.
  16. I still haven't gotten any notice... are they actually sending the lost Canadian orders out? I'll admit I'm starting to feel despondent about the lack of news about what's going on with my order.
  17. Such tremendous models. It's really awesome what a great product reaper is putting out.
  18. This is great news for folks that got shipped via hubs. Really ace of Reaper to help costs come down like that.
  19. I'd love more big burly women figures. And dinomen are pretty appealing to me to be honest - can use them as dragonmen or lizardmen but they are a little cooler. I'd really love to see more tengu/bird people... especially a few that aren't dressed in eastern garb and ones that aren't based on crows (owl tengu, eagle tengu, etc) ... and not looking like thieves. Basically if you want to play a tengu character it is devilishly hard to find an appropriate mini. Ditto with kitsune. More please.
  20. Definitely looking forward to finding out... though I'd probably get some real side-eye from my sweetheart if I get a giant kickstarter box and another order in one month...
  21. Hey no problems. I was also relieved to know it was a known issue, not just be wondering! And like you have no doubts it will all be sorted out. Also, experiencing some serious jelly feelings as well ;)
  22. He's a great dragon. I am waaaay less regretful this Kickstarter than last as while I think he's a great figure, I still have so many dragons still to paint from KS2 that I don't feel regretful about not buying every single one this go. I still bought at least 4... but yeah... feel pretty good on dragons for the moment... which I never thought I'd say. Really so far the only really true regret I have is not buying 2 froghemoths like I originally planned to. And really, out of everything I was regretful about not loading up on last time... I barely bought any at retail so I clearly didn't want them THAT much. So, that's a nice lesson in FOMO learned. Really I bought waaaaaay more than I should have as is so I am just going to "suffer" with that.
  23. You might be one of the 60 or so canadian orders that were missed for some unknown reason. I am in the same boat. Bryan said we'd be sent in our wave order but I was in wave one and nothing has been sent yet (or at least no notices) - I sent in a formal email a couple days ago and they have said they are looking into it, but haven't heard anything back yet about when I can expect my stuff to be sent. On the bright side, I think they are pretty aware of our messed up orders. On the sad side, we might be waiting awhile for our goodies. The other fellow I saw on here was also from BC (me too - Victoria!) - I wonder if there was some glitch about processing BC orders...
