    Reaper Bones 5 : Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    Slight rant - not directed at anyone in particular. I'm really getting tired of people "remembering" things like "Reaper did X in the last campaign" or "X was Y" with wrong/incorrect information when they're commenting on the KS comments and elsewhere for things that are easy enough to look up by looking at the Kickstarter or Kicktraq page for the previous campaigns.
  2. Sorry to hear about that Unruly. something to keep in mind here: One thing I've learned is that police reports quite often paint the suspect/defendant in the worst light possible. Things get exaggerated, taken out of context, stuff like that. And then the news cherry picks that even further. That doesn't mean it's not a serious situation, or that your b-i-l did nothing wrong, only that you should all be aware of the inherent bias of the process - which I know might be harder for you to do, because of your own background working with the police.

    Will the KS frigate be usable?

    Hmmm....I have two of those carts, and a large basement. Now I just need two ships.

    Question of painting translucents?

    Depending on exactly which model you're painting, and what effect you're looking for, Tamiya Clears can be helpful as well: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/77851-77096-labella-demornay-banshee-with-tamiya-clears/

    Are there any good close up photos of the stained glass golem out there? I'm thinking about having my wife do one in real stained glass.

    I designed and printed my own, but I'd still like to see something like this. Same here.

    I like that idea. And they've already done one - the Troll Encounter. a TPK

    I'm thinking that Bones 6 needs the same figures as Teen Heroes, Bones 7 needs them as Middle Aged Heroes and Bones 8 needs them as Elderly Heroes.

    My son took one look at those hands in spell effects 2, and wondered if we could get an extra set so we could convert one to be giving the finger.

    We've seen how well that goes. You came back, and we lost Ripley

    They've also said that the Chronoscope expansion is going to be fairly focused this time around. I guess the question is, is that pulp car in the Chronoscope expansion or not?

    Reaper Bones 5 : Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    So the bits and pieces I've picked up point to the Chronoscope Expansion being focused on 1920s/Chtulu sort of stuff? If that's true, while it's great for the fans of that sort of stuff, I hope it doesn't mean that there won't be any sci-fi at all.

    Now I want to see this as a mini. I'm looking to use these for wargames. Lot's of times it would have been nice to have some, since we use to do a lot of siege scenarios. Great. Just great. Now I need 4 of each, instead of 2 each. Two whole versions, and two damaged versions. Unless I can just get three, and divide the 3rd one into two parts?
  15. That would be my recommendation, too. Though not every one of them will have a 12 month period - some will have adjustments every 3 or 6 months. Sadly, there are some smaller utilities out there that won't do the fixed rate. Our electric & water are via our city, and they don't have an option for fixed rate billing. so today's absurd call? Distributor called because her customer called her screaming they hadn't received some pre-installation parts that should have been shipped from the factory a month ago. A little detective work got me the tracking number and delivery confirmation. Pallet was delivered by freight 3 weeks ago. Best part - delivery was signed for by guy who did the screaming.
  16. My favorite support email exchange from today was the customer who said "thanks for the video on how to do that, but it's not working when I put the configuration code in." I asked him what configuration code he was using. He was not using the configuration code from the video. Why did I find this so enjoyable? This particular car wash owner also owns a marijuana dispensary.

    It looks to me like this time they've gone to reveal the picture of the next stretch goal, and only the name of the one after that, in contrast to previous KS where they've revealed two pictures ahead. Not sure if this is intentional, or just because we exceeded Ron's expectations. Ron did admit on the Reaper Live show on Tuesday that he didn't expect to get to DD part 3 until tomorrow - and that was the 900k reveal.
  18. I was just making a joke about the accuracy of telemarketer databases, I didn't think about identity theft. They won't issue you a new SSN? I can't remember the details, but I know someone who got a new one back in the 90s because of that.
  19. According to you? Or according to some database somewhere?

    Mostly the usual "I don't like this", "Why aren't they updating?", "Why are you asking for that, it's stupid.", etc petty bickering and complaining, plus some virtue signalling. My big issue with the dino people in the Chronoscope expansion in B4 was that there was only one of each type. I'd find them far more usable if there were at least 2-3, but preferably 4-5 of each type. I liked most of the figures, but like a lot of the interesting figures in Chronoscope, I'd like them a lot more if there was more than just one of them. I'd quite happily field a squad of pterosaur or trex men in my skirmish games, or use them as an alien encounter in a Traveller game, but as a single figure, they're not quite as useful to me. And by extension, that applies to ALL the dino variants in this KS, too. I may, at some point, pick up all the pterosaur men variants, and convert them into a sci-fi squad for Renegade Scout. The other dinos don't look as easy to that with. And yes, I do realize it's a catch-22 - Reaper won't expand the models if we don't buy them, but a lot of us won't buy them if they don't expand them.
  21. getting so tired of people skipping appointments...

    that's how I felt about the Chronoscope Expansion in Bones 4.

    I have a different set for each character, game and/or army. So my favorite set depends on what i'm playing.

    Is the new Goroloth bigger or smaller?
