  1. Kicktraq has us at about 340K for the day as of 2:30. Do you think we'll hit 600K for the day?
  2. I've been away, and was hoping to see 80,000 the last hour. Looks the day has been running around 50,000 an hour. With less than 2 hours to go, 3.3 million?
  3. At the current rate, we won't hit Kalanzar. Ron has increased the $$$ amount for each stretch goal, but the rate has not increased at the same rate.
  4. Early on, I estimated 3.5 million. Seems like a stretch at the moment.
  5. Breaking Bones I 3.4 million seems to be a stretch as well. The pledge run rate puts us at 3.2 million.
  6. This is my first Bones KS. Did Reaper do anything dramatic towards the end to boost Bones IV pledge rate?
  7. This is my first Bones KS, so I can compare/contrast it to another high $$$ Kickstarter by Dwarven Forge (3mil plus, but only 3000 backers) Both are very receptive to their customers Both do videos during the KS Creators did interact on KS comments about the same amount (I guess in past KickStarters, Reaper interacted a lot more in the comments section.) Reaper has a much broader user base so I think it is tougher to please (backers not happy with the next reveal because it isn't up their ally. Such comments mainly on KS) Reaper caters to new backers, which is positive. The starter/core set gives the backer the best deal (for only 120.00). DF caters to the high end purchaser, you get the best deal if you spend 4K and up. This is a negative for DF, especially if the goal is to attract new customers. One area that would improve the overall experience (at least in the KS comments section) DF lays out the stretch goal map out farther, generally 500K or 10 stretch goals. Adds additional goals later as needed. Also has a lot of Lock symbols on existing stretch goal map encounters or sets, especially the starter/core set. These differences contributed to: 1.) DF Backers didn't complain that the core/beginner set was way over priced compared to previous campaigns (they did complain that the pieces continue to rise in price over time). Again these comments were numerous in the Reaper KS page. 2.) Reaper backer complained on the stretch goal reveals that the reveal wasn't what they wanted (Busts for example). Yeah, I'm over 600, but nothing in the stretch goals interests me, so for now I'm lucky
  8. The KS comments could be nit picky. There was one particular piece of kitchen plastic ware that was distinctly negative. The account seems to have vanished.
  9. At the current pledge rate we might make 1 unlock on the next map. This KS is far more front loaded than Bones IV.
  10. That's what I plan on doing. I already do that with Dwarven Forge stuff, even though they sell their sets as Encounters during KS.
  11. BB is far more durable than the WizKids figures. I agree, I'm not sure why Reaper decided to describe them in that manner. I really didn't purchase many Bones human sized figures due to the lack of detail, bendy weapons, and a number of figures just didn't stand up right. Even the water/heat methods couldn't quite fix some these. I do have lots of Bones monsters.
  12. Looks like the last hour was ~18K. At 28K we would get 9-10 unlocks for the last day (17 hours)
  13. Not sure about 3.5million, we need 85K+ an hour and that is going to be tough. Anyone know what Bones 4 hourly incremental was during the last 4 hours?
  14. Pledge manager will be open until August maybe longer. You purchase new items the entire time, and at the end (behind the scenes) it combines your orders for Reaper to ship.
  15. Kickstarter doesn't take PayPal. Ed mentioned PayPal being available during the PM phase.
  16. Those would work, dremel tool, marine epoxy, and pin.
  17. Ed or Ron mentioned them on a Reaper Live show earlier this year. Inspired me to make one for myself. It's not metal though...
  18. Thanks for the info. Due to the effort these require, it seems at best it might be a promotional item outside of Reapercon.
  19. On twitch Brother Dave mentioned the $5 cost to make, and what would people are willing to pay for it
  20. I have hundreds of Reaper paints and have purchased 3 LTPK, and I would be fine if they added the stick pin option to a new/existing LTPK. A fixed price of $10.00 would also work.
  21. Ron replied to me in comments section, that the fan favorites is a collection of figures that didn't fit elsewhere. Also, the extra B4 FF sold out very fast on their website as opposed to the Chronoscope expansion, which I believe is still available today.
  22. The two companies are pretty responsive to their customers.
