  1. Oh thank you. I knew there were a few Bones USA figures out there but didn't realize they were making these little silhouetted ones too. I'll be sure to test it out.
  2. Does anyone know why I might have received what seems to be a miniature silhouetted figure of Sheriff Drumfasser (44018) with my latest order? I don’t own the Sheriff but Reeve Irremborg Planomap (44019) (who seems to be a related figure) was included in the order. Is it meant to be used for something? Thanks.
  3. This was my first Reaper Kickstarter and I ended up more than doubling my initial spending budget. I'm almost thankful I wasn't around for any of their earlier ones. Anyway, here is my final tally: * CORE SET EXTRAS: - Player Characters - Catfolk - Dreadmere Personas - Boulderkin - Kobold Swarm - Extra Elves * EXPANSION SETS: - Dungeon Dwellers - Greek Odyssey - Dark Depths - Brinewind, City of Pirates * OPTIONS (ENCOUNTERS): - The Spiders of Emrith Kul - The Dwarf King's Crypt - Shadows of Ravenhome * OPTIONS (DRAGONS): - Valfuryx the Vile - Aganzarax the Foul - Shavynra the Slayer - Ildraedis the Devourer - Kalanzar the Wicked * OPTIONS (CREATURES): - Fire Giant - Storm Giant - Goroloth - Arakoth * OPTIONS (CHARACTER SETS): - Dragonfolk - Townsfolk - Henchmen & Hirelings - Henchwomen * OPTIONS (TERRAIN): - Pirate Ship - Hippocampus Figurehead TOTAL: $786.83 (@ late backer prices)
  4. Westfalia Miniatures have a line of tribal Elves that may be what you’re looking for.
  5. I also received these figures through that Twitch contest and my much less scientific opinion is that they're really good. The detail is great and I like their firmness. I haven't got the Bones versions of these models to compare them to, but I also think these figures seem slightly smaller/thinner than comparable models I have in Bones Black. On a related note, does anyone know if Reaper is planning to phase out Bones and Bones Black? Seems like the inevitable outcome of this development. P.S. One of my figures' sword had broken off (during postage I assume) in case anyone finds that detail interesting. My uninformed guess would be "Yes", since some of the figures they have already made (remade?) were the Bones figures from the Learn-To-Paint Kits.
  6. Oh wow. “Useless” of course. Haha I was typing that at 3 am so that’s a good example of what a tired brain does to you. Thanks also for all that great information about the giants. The Reaper and Nolzur’s giants seem to fit together quite well. Now to decide whether I can afford to add more money to the PM for them...
  7. I have a question about the giants in this set that I hope some people might be able to help me with. How accurately do their sizes match the "official" D&D scale? And how do their sizes match against previous Reaper giants and those made by Nolzur's? (I realize this may be hard to answer without actually seeing the giants in person.) I'm basically wondering if, if I bought these minis, whether they'd mismatch with other giants I might buy or be otherwise unuseful for gaming. (Why is spellchecker having a hard time with "unuseful"? That's a word right?) Thanks anyone.
  8. The Reaper Kickstarter hasn’t stopped taking orders. You can still sign in as a late backer and get that Fire Giant for $10.
  9. Well I finally caved and bought the ship. At $125 (I'm a late backer) that is far more than I would ever normally spend on a "toy" but knowing that it might never come to retail, and that I would therefore miss out on it forever, spurred me into action. AND THEN, because I bought the ship, I had to buy Dark Depths, Brinewind, Goroloth and the Hippocampus to replace the Maiden (no guns in my D&D world) to go with it too! I had no initial interest in any of those items and now I've just doubled all of my previous spending in this KS! My name is Kalibak and I am an addict. lol
  10. Loving the Hydra. I ordered that one too. I'm kicking myself for not ordering that halfling on the flying carpet now that I see how cute it is.
  11. Have you tried emailing their customer support: [email protected] ? In my experience they’re usually pretty quick to respond. Edit: Whoops. I see from your earlier posts that you have been in email contact with them.
  12. I just emailed them about an unrelated issue and got news that my order has not left the warehouse yet. They are apparently trying to complete the EU orders before any others (understandably). I was also a late backer so that may have affected things.
  13. @Reaper_Jon Thanks very much for the response Jon. I'm sorry if my tone seemed short but time is also running short now that items in the KS are being turned off. I did catch a bit of last week's (I think) Bones V Live Update wherein @Reaper Ron mentioned that the Elemental Scions will be Bones Black, but that actually increased my frustration regarding communication on this issue. Firstly because, if that information is known, then why isn't it being posted somewhere for customers to easily find/see, rather than requiring us to trawl through dozens of hours of Twitch videos to catch a few seconds of information that may or may not be there? And secondly, because that's another instance of a large item conflicting with the repeated assurance that "large items will be Bones and small to medium items will be Bones Black" (assuming you're defining "large", "medium" and "small" by their standard TTRPG 1" grid measurements?). I'm sure the products will be great either way, but for those of us who like to be fully-informed before making purchases, I hope communication on this issue will be a lot clearer in Bones VI.
  14. Now that items in the KS are being turned off I thought I'd make one last attempt to find out what material I'm actually getting with my purchase. @Reaper Ron @Reaper_Jon
  15. This might have already been suggested, but: I would like to see some OVERWEIGHT ADVENTURER figures. Male and female of all classes. That "full-figured" Henchwoman in the Bones V Power-Up is a great start and I'd like to see a lot more to choose from. P.S. This request is for Bones Black or Bones USA; my preferred material.
  16. Also, unless you pledged before the Kickstarter “closed” (which it doesn’t seem like you did), you will actually pay $65 rather than $50 for the Dark Depths Expansion (still cheaper than retail) for pledging late. That’s what happened to me too unfortunately.
  17. ^ I agree. I went all in on their Fantasy KS and was hoping this one would give me some great monsters that could supplement that collection. I expected there to be a few miniatures I couldn’t use (in my D&D game) but this KS has far too many; and the designs of some of the ones that are useable are not that great either. I think I’ll try to pick up the few I like individually at retail if possible.
  18. @Reaper Ron @Reaper_Jon There was talk at one time about releasing a table identifying the material each item in this KS would be made in. As there is now less than a month until the PM closes and most people will have finalized their orders, such a table is probably redundant. If possible though, I'd still like to know whether the following items are Bones or Bones Black before I lock in my order: - Shavynra the Slayer - The Spiders of Emrith Kul (all pieces) - Arakoth the Ancient - Ildraedis the Devourer - Shadows of Ravenhome (all pieces) - Kalanzar the Wicked - Nathavarr the Ravenous Thanks.
  19. Preview pages up in the latest update. This collection is beautifully presented and looks very informative. The price point makes me pause (anything in Euros scares me lol) but I’ve decided to back.
  20. Do they have an active FaceBook page? I find companies sometimes resolve issues quicker if you question them publicly there.
  21. I was just looking at an online gaming store's website and saw the following message posted on their WizKids page: It then goes on to list the minis that are going up in price, all of them large-size creatures and a few terrain pieces (there may be more but those were the only ones available from that webstore). That is an almost 100% price increase! I find that kind of outrageous. Price-point was the major appeal of WizKids to me, so with more and more affordable miniature (and STL) companies entering the market they'd better be careful not to greed themselves off people's radars.
  22. @Reaper Ron Thank you for the information. If I can ask you one more question while you’re here, people have been asking for clarification as to what material the Add-Ons will be for months. All we have been told is that bigger stuff is in Bones and smaller stuff is in Bones Black. This is too vague. Some of us would like to know what material we are actually purchasing. Is it possible to get a table showing the materials of the various pieces in this KS, particularly before December 1st?
  23. This KS has ended up doing quite well I think. Lots of stretch goals unlocked, including a couple of ever-popular beholders. And I really like the Female Dwarf Paladin that got unlocked too; Fantastic runic sword! I ended up increasing my pledge to the "Entire Tomb Guardians Catalog in Resin".
  24. I’m excited for this. These look really good.
  25. ^ Yes. Kind of a letdown, hey? I hope the next stretch goal is at $20,000 for the nice round number of it but also so we can quickly move on from these salamanders that all have way too similar of a sculpt. On another note, I know there were a lot of people complaining about Tomb Guardians' excessive advertising earlier in this thread, but I think the unfortunate truth is that advertising works. This seems to be their most successful KS to date, by some margin.
