    Reaper Bones 5 : Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    This mad dash at the end is driving me insane! Still so much I would like to see, of things teased at reaper con! I saw in an above spreadsheet the dragons are gargantuan sized (4 inch base), is that the case? Could have sworn they were on 3 inch bases... This alone may make me need to collect the set of Chromatics in PM...
  2. So I placed my order this month and I got my package, not only did they throw in an extra paint or two outside of the nice ghoulie bag bonus, and the dark dwarf pounder, but whoever processed my order left a lovely note on my receipt! I cannot say I have ever needed to interact with reaper customer service as I don't live in the same timezone as they are, and I have never had a problem with my purchases, but the fact that someone took the time out of their busy day to leave a kind note really struck me as unique. They didn't have to, they certainly didn't have to give me extra free stuff, but they did. I have always loved Reapers minis since I first started painting (which has only been a few months), but I can confidently say I will recommend them to every new painter. Not only do they have lots of cool stuff, but the little things like this really show they care. Hell, they had no idea I would post this, whoever it was really went the extra mile, and I know bad things are 100x more likely to be talked about (not necessarily here but in general), so I thought I would leave this hopefully for someone to find send to the people in charge, or the amazing person who did this, it is so very much appreciated.

    Super excited to be getting dark elves in core, not that I thought it was "weak" but its super nice to get a nice little squad of them, especially since they seem to not be the typical dagger/staff dark elves for different types of encounters. ...Unfortunately I have to lower my pledge just a hair, but I would rather know everything is going through and still save a little bit for the holidays (Santa can't only come for me after all), but I am very thrilled that the pledge manager is rumored to stay around for a year as this is my first reaper kickstarter, considering the time of year, that really does add flexibility and a chance to get all you could need. All the same, I am excited to see just how far this can go, even if I can't toss any more in until after its over. ...Wonder if we are going to get a complete set of Chromatic Dragons? So far I have seen Blue, Green, Black, and a Shadow (not necessarily a Chromatic but evil so it can share a shelf if I can convince the wife early 2020). Very much looking forward to seeing a Red and White. I'm hoping the Greek 2/3 really have some cool things in them, they started off really good with the bronze golem, and cyclops but with the giant being an add on I don't know what is going to follow it up.. Also, as I am new here, does anyone know on average these minis will take to hit retail once all waves of the kickstarter go out and are received? Or even ones from the previous kickstarters if they haven't hit the market yet?

    Doing the same, I know I want the Core, Dungeon delvers, Mammoth, I wouldn't mind the Greek (Mainly wanting that bronze golem & cyclops but maybe once we see more it'll be a NEED), and depending on the underwater set, I will have to choose between a couple of dragon add ons and the underwater set. ...Might have to add a bit more for shipping by the end of it, but hell. I am 50 over my budget anyways..

    This was me, my uncle got me into CR like 3 years ago, which got me into d&d, we play over skype so no real need for minis, but we have a session once a year in person if we are lucky, and eventually kid will grow up and hopefully want to play, so maybe by the time he is old enough to I will have a substantial array of creatures and terrain to show off and throw at him. I have been slowly buying reaper figures as they're fun to paint even though I am not great at it, and I have found it really helps with giving me a "happy space". Learned of Bones 4 just after everything wrapped up and couldn't get involved (too late to even the after-after party) and watched like a hawk for bones 5.

    Yep, I am guessing the next map will be the Greek Expansion which from what I have seen has cool minis to get everyone through the low point in the kickstarter, followed by an oceanic one ending with a pirate ship to get everything over the finishline. As we finish this map, we are at +50k per goal. I would guess we will get through a goal of that high in about 2 days each then the last map in a mad dash.

    That's how its been going, working night shift and spent the first two night refreshing kickstarter and this page all night. I'm curious if we are going to unlock goroloth tonight. I hope so, its always nice to go to bed right as something unlocks so I know there will be some new update when I wake up.

    So we know kickstarters tend to settle down a bit after the first 2 days, typically, then pick up in the last two. As this is my first reaper kickstarter (or any for minis) how likely are we to going to unlock another expansion do you all think?

    Another fun stat is average donation has gone up about 3 dollars over the course of the campaign. Up to an average of $117.12 currently.

    Daimyo Expansion part 2 just unlocked! Next is Narthalyssk at 1.33M, then Grim Reaper and 2" bases at 1.375M for the core set! Surprised there was an update tonight at this hour but very happy for it!

    Apologies! Hopefully no one took it seriously, but thank you for the call out before it became a thing. :)

    Judging from the Map being reminiscent of Feudal Japan I am willing to bet we will see all the samurai figures first. ...I'd imagine the Greek one will be towards the end as there were lots of big figures that fit that theme. What are we betting?

    I can't say I am sold on the dinos, but that's just because I won't really have a use for them. The Dragon Wolf, is something interesting that looks both fun to paint and could be really cool to throw down on a table. New to miniatures so a lot of the core set is really useful to me even if I haven't fallen in love with all of whats currently there, I just wish some of the female adventurers had a bit more armor, but I suppose that's personal taste? Either way a lot of cool sculpts IMO, stand outs being the skinny Scarecrow, the dreadmere villains, bolderkins, and the grim reaper looks sick. The War Mammoth looks awesome, Don't know how I will work it into a game... but one day. The Dungeon Delvers expansion I have some interest in. Small horde of goblins an orcs seem like they'd be useful to have. Plague Doctors look awesome, Don't know where the rats would be cool other then decoration but I suppose they'd work for familiars/ if I ever open a game in an oblivion style dungeon. The PCs here also look pretty good and excited to share many of them as my groups play. ...The treasure dragon looks coolish but its hard to tell until a finished product emerges. So far I am in for the Core Set, Dungeon Delvers, Mammoth, Curious when all the greek inspired stuff will come, as well as the otters, and other seafolk. ...I am going to have to make some choices it seems. The dragons look nice, I know I'd like one of them, but again... decisions.. Can't say I am looking forward to the Samurai and Oriental themed minis, but again, that's just because my games town have a more Medieval Europe flair. If people want them, enjoy!
