Not sure how I got hopped up to the front of the line, I was sure I was in the last thousand or so. Glad to see kaos is getting his as well, we have a small trade arranged.
  2. I guess my buying buddy and I will be jealous of the pictures posted for the next month or so. None the less, glad we're finally at the shipping stage.

  3. Aww c'mon.. you couldn't have shared this genius idea a couple of days ago?
  4. Extenuating circumstances. You can be forgiven. Also congratulations!
  5. Accountant here (not often is that said in a positive tone). I do taxes rather than bookkeeping, but here's my best guess: Assuming Reaper is using accrual method of accounting rather than cash method (as in it records a sale when the transaction happens, not when money is received) they'll mark all paint and sophie money as actual sales (it's shipping next month). They'll then have a short term liability (in that they owe us minis) for the remaining amount until next year. This will defer most of the income to 2013 (delaying when they pay tax and thus getting the best time value of their money). This would have to be consistent with other sales though. Do they usually report a sale when the order is processed? when it's shipped? when money is received? Hope that helps. I reserve the right to be completely wrong, there may be some rule or exception that I don't know off hand.
  6. Yup. Original Pledge: $100. (the beginning) End of Kickstarter Pledge: $300 (dragons you say?) Reaper Paints: $150 or so (impatient) Bones Minis from FLGS: $50 or so (might as well) Metal Minis from Reaper: $40 or so (oh what the heck) Total RPM Pledge: $593 (I give up, take it all) This from a person that has never owned a mini before. I've now painted 30 minis for a board game and one for my D&D character with my wife's help. Without this Kickstarter, Reaper doesn't see any of that money. Well played Reaper... Well played.
  7. Locked and loaded. Almost tripled my order. Buyers remorse? Not a chance.
  8. I do believe that was an evil laugh. Proof is in the pudding.
  9. Thanks! and agreed. I was up too late as it was last night though. Basing will have to wait a bit.
  10. I got my order from miniature-giant in a couple days ago (backordered, and then delayed again because I wanted to add another backorder item). I know it's not one of the bones, but it's one of my first minis ever and the first one of my own I'll be using in a weekly game.
  11. My ridiculously large order of paints comes in today (went through the reaper catalog and chose most of the colors I liked, plus 2 HD sets). I've been constantly checking the fed ex tracker for the last week. Bugbear and Knoll minis from the FLGS are getting some action tonight!
  12. I saw this also a few weeks back, but I agree with papercut here, $25 for a digital download seems ridiculous. I've kickstarted far more labor intensive videogames for much less. Looked interesting, but not worth it for me. For what it's worth, I'd definitely consider a digital download at the $10-$15 range.
  13. Small and Xtra-Small only. Start your diet now.
  14. My guess would be no on the lunchbox with foam like the Master Series HD sets (seems expensive given the deep discount on the paint already). I'd assume just individually packaged bottles like you'd get when buying a single color online. I could be wrong though.
  15. Now I just want to run a campaign simply so i can use this idea as an encounter. Ooh, better yet, I want to play in a campaign GMd by Buglips where he uses this idea an encounter... It would be at least rated R, if not NC-17. Go on...
  16. If I didn't have arachnophobia before... now I do.
  17. Add me to the list. Saw the deals Baphomet posted and couldn't resist clicking. Plus a quick search gets you $3 off any order over $25 and free shipping. I snagged some BONES and a couple metal ones for my current D&D characters. I'll let you guys know how they do on back orders. I'm in no hurry since I have no paints yet.
  18. Well a great way to start is to get an avatar. Annnd we're off...
  19. Good to know I'm not the only one on the couch :-). I guess we disagree on how this proposal was different from or whether it falls under the same net as the previous answers, which is perfectly acceptable from where I sit because I can see both sides. I have a suspicion that the lack of response from Reaper in this thread is a response in and of itself (so they don't set a precedent for answering every time we think we have a brilliant idea which won't work in reality). I don't have particularly high hopes for the idea, but figured it was worth throwing out there. I'm not holding my breath.
  20. I'm well aware of what the OP was asking for, but you say potato... you know the rest. It's a swap; call it what you want, but it's a swap. Figures you don't want for figures you do. Sophie works as a swap-out for several reasons; none of those apply to the Bones situation. ~v I agree. It is a swap, and Reaper has said it won't do any swaps except for Sophie (for the reasons you reference). While I absolutely understand your frustration, please understand that those that want only fantasy minis see an minor inefficiency, not worth complaining about, but perhaps fixable (hence the discussion). Is there any harm in suggesting a slightly different course of action without expectation or entitlement? Example (not based in any way on real life): My wife tells me that I will be sleeping on the couch for a month because I have purchased $300 worth of miniatures that she feels is a horrible waste of money. I say "I understand, that is a lot of money. How about I sleep on the couch for 3 weeks and get conjugal visits." To which she says "No, there will be no conjugal visits." I understand what has taken place and (mostly) don't regret my decision, but that won't stop me from saying the following, "You know I've noticed you've put some items in the save for later section on amazon. Perhaps we should put those items in the shopping cart since we are saving money from refinancing the house. Any chance of getting off the couch within the month?" At this point it is very possible that she will say no, and we move on with our life (unfortunate as that may be). But there is a possibility that she'll say yes despite saying no to the previous suggestion.
  21. Good points (from my uneducated POV) to both of your GregR selves. So which one of you is smarter?
  22. I believe the BONES line is made from a vinyl based plastic which wouldn't be recyclable. The eBay option will be a good one eventually, but the market could be flooded in march with those particular minis. I do think the idea of someone throwing them away is humorous though, hope he wasn't serious. Until then the trade thread fills.
