  1. Went ahead and sent in an email. I hope they can send out a replacement leg once the kickstarter shipping is done. At least I got a boat load of minis to keep my occupied for now!
  2. Hi all, I got my shipment today and I saw that my Kaladrax is missing the left leg and I have an extra left arm. I saw that someone else had this issue too and I wanted to if others are having this issue and who do we talk to from reaper to get it fixed. Aside from that, Loving my minis so far!
  3. Keep up the posts! I never painted a mini before so I'm actually looking at this as a beginners guide to follow.
  4. I want to be clear that in no way do I mean for my suggestion to get anyone's hopes up and I appolgize if any one felt I was spreading false rumors or misinformation. It was merely a suggestion to help put the swap out requests to rest in a way that was hopefully beneficial and positive for all parties. Regardless of what happens, I think everyone is still really excited about the figures and can't wait. At the very least, I know its brought me (and many others) into the world of minis.
  5. To be honest, I am a bit disappointed by the number of new members that presume to know Reaper's business better than Reaper does. However, I don't see anyone here spewing any hate or anger, in your direction or any other. This forum is one of the most reasonable and least insular online communities that I know of (likely due to the fact that events like ReaperCon bring so many of us together to meet in person). Poke it enough times with a stick, however, and ultimately, you will provoke a response. Reaper has made it plainly clear, repeatedly, that there will be no swaps other than Sophie. The deal is as good as it is because it is fixed, keeping logistical hurdles to a minimum. While the suggestions put forth have been interesting, each has ramifications (cost, time, alienation of retailers, etc.). Continuing to pursue it smacks of some sense of entitlement rather than a desire to see what is best for everyone, Reaper included. Not every stretch goal in the KS program pleased every backer equally; almost 20,000 of us participated in it, and a fair number of people wanted Chronoscope miniatures as part of it. It's time to stop counting the horse's number of teeth. ~v I think you are completely entailed to your opinion and I get what your saying. However, unless you officially speak for Reaper I think its really just that, your opinion. Personally, I view my suggestion different from the individuality specific swap out requests made here and on kickstarter. You don't. That's actually fine since I'm most curious to know what Reaper thinks. Either way I'll back them 100% and look forward to playing with my bones when they get in!
  6. Not a bad idea, although I expect that most people not interested in them will take them anyways to either: 1) Trade on-line 2) Trade at their local gaming shop 3) Mod to fit their scenario 4) Leave in a box and forget about because they can I figure I might try to mod them and/or use as painting examples.
  7. To everyone upset at my suggestion I ask that you take a step back and relax. As I stated before hand, I am excited about the package which is a great deal. I'm looking to get into minis and this is a great opportunity to do that while supporting a top notch mini company. I am merely asking if Reaper would be interested in what I proposed considering the large response of people interested in only the classic fantasy aspects of the package. I took a look at the comments posted here and on kickstarter and I thought this would have been a great way to address the "swap out" requests while making (at least what I saw) a fairly easy and manageable option for Reaper. I even figured that if they doubled up on some aspects of the current package (for example, Swap out Nova for more Undead as an example), it might even reduce manufacturing costs given the larger bulk order for already used models (just basing it off my own manufacturing background with dealing with tooling change over, raw material supply costs and bulk shipping). It really was a question directed to Reaper which is 110% their call. If they say no, then no harm or foul. It was merely a suggestion. Regarding the trade thread, I think it has merit but its difficult to trade when a large population of traders all want to swap out the same pieces. I continue to scour it and other trading threads on other forums but I (and I expect others) haven't had much success. I'll keep looking because hey, you never know. To be honest I am a bit disappointed by the hate/anger my comment generated in this forum. I was kinda hoping to hear more constructive criticism rather then name calling or implying that I'm or others are ungrateful for voicing an honest suggestion that I have not seen posted anywhere else. Although I'm sure some many people are tired of the swap out comments, I was at least hoping to find some sort of option both groups might say, "Hey that's not a bad idea and something we didn't consider." If its not feasible, then so be it. I leave it for the Reaper staff to decide.
  8. Howdy all, First off let me say that I'm super excited to have gotten in on the vampire level pledge. I can't wait to get my minis and start building up my collection. That said, I've noticed on these forums and kickstarter, an overwhelming interest in swaping out the non-classic fantasy minis (ie Nova, IMEF marines, zombie hunters, and/or etc.). I posted this idea on kickstarter, but I figured I might try here to see what Reaper thought. Would Reaper be interested in offering a second vampire option of classic fantasy only minis? The selections would still be fixed and at your discretion, and I think it would make a lot of customers happy. It should also make logisitcs fairly straightforward since its only a single fixed alternative (in addition to the Sophia swap out option).
