Let's all run around playing salesmen at our FLGS. Salespitch "I WANT TO SEE WHAT'S UNDER THE NEXT GRAVESTONE!" :P

Alright so in a little bit I'm going to be pledging $100 to the kickstarter. As much as I know it will be worth it in about 7 months I still feel sad when I have to part with my hard earned cash. :( *sad background music* So when March comes around and I don't get my minis I'll be out on an epic quest to reek revenge upon Reaper for the loss of my cash. >:) MUHAHAHA. .lol Anyway. Cheers.

EDIT: And even at the slightly slowed pace of pledges, I'm also guess we'll have our answer for this before the week is out. :;):

 

Based on the average per day I would say we'll know sometime on Friday.

 

That could be a pretty hard sell. If the 'next tombstone is the highest unrevealed one' continues, we have to hit 5 stretch goals to find out what's under it, and 6 to get it. I get the feeling Bryan is savoring every minute of us trying to figure out what's coming, at what price, and when.

 

$1500 to go until we find out what's under the square one!

 

Not at all. The Kicktraq on this averages the project at $15.5K a day. The average is about 5 goals per $100K raised, or $20K per stretch goal. I'm estimating that the Mausoleum opens up between $400K and $450K which is the low projections for this project. That will most likely happen around a week before the drive wrap up and generate that last burst of enthusiasm for a last round of increased pledges from us backers.

Finally got my friends orders nailed down and we've pledged at Vampire with a ton of extra goodies.

 

Now the waiting....

 

Not at all. The Kicktraq on this averages the project at $15.5K a day. The average is about 5 goals per $100K raised, or $2K per stretch goal. I'm estimating that the Mausoleum opens up between $400K and $450K which is the low projections for this project. That will most likely happen around a week before the drive wrap up and generate that last burst of enthusiasm for a last round of increased pledges from us backers.

 

If they hit the Mausoleum at one week, that will be an absolute coup for their marketing attempts, and perfect timing for them.

If this project is funded, how do I get my reward?

When your reward is ready, Reaper Miniatures will send you a survey via email to request any info needed to deliver your reward (mailing address, T-shirt size, etc).

 

So when will I get this e-mail. I rarely check my email. :P

Reaper, do you have a full-page flyer made up for the Kickstarter? I'm going to my FLGS in about an hour for game day, it would be great if I could print out some flyers to take and have them put up.

 

Half.

Two-up.

 

Thanks, Kit!

 

Wait, hold on a second! Doesn't anyone else see what a bad idea this is?

 

I love this project, but advertising in a FLGS for folks to go somewhere else to spend their $ is undeniably rude.

 

Also, even though the flyer is fan-made, it would not look good for Reaper's name to be on a flyer at a store that encourages patrons to go spend their money elsewhere. Not a good way to engender good feelings between the retailer and producer.

 

Seriously, Don't do it.

The only time I got to watch it last week was the weekend, so got it in my head that the time it took just for Orcpocalypse was the new norm. Is it averaging $16k/day, or is that the current pace?

They (Reaper) have a option for FLGS the 300.00 USD Undertaker level I think it is called. Only the FLGS can order it I think.

Within that first week after it's closed, by my reckoning.

Depends on how it is presented to the store. I fully intend to take one to my local FLGS specifically for the purpose of getting them to pledge for an Undertaker level. If they share it with their customers beyond that, that's out of my hands.

Not only that, the more successful the KS is, the more product the stores will have available to sell...

 

EDIT: what I mean is, outside the Undertaker, Reaper will have more models available.

That is the overall average dollars per day. Over the last week they've averaged $13,952 per day.

Not bad at all...assuming today hits the current goal [$500 to go] before the Klocke starts ticking, we should be at ~$290k by this time Friday...depending on the goal for the square stone, if the pattern holds that'll have us about to hit or digging on the one right above the winged stone.

Almost there...

 

Btw, I don't expect any large freebies and I'll happily pay a discounted price for anything.

      My exchange partner this time around was @Corporea.  She was one of those troublesome ones that are fine with anything.  This of course means that I am free to do anything, so what I did was use her as an excuse to test out airbrushing my Vallejo Air Metallics.  Because of that this mini is a little more metallic than I might have otherwise done.  The aluminum didn't want to airbrush, or hand brush for that matter, so I may have a bad bottle.  Other than that they all worked as expected. I.e. you can create a TMM effect by combining these paints with a regular paint for the shadows.
       
      I also tried my hand at a mosaic tile base.  The area I started with isn't as good as the rest of the base, but seeing as I am already late I didn't go back and take even more time to repaint that area.  Overall I thought it turned out pretty well, though I don't believe I'll be doing it on cork again. While I thought the imperfections in the surface could work as missing tiles, in practice they just ended up being in inconvenient places.

       
      But unfortunately I had to stick a mini on it.
       

       

       
      Full frontal metal shiny.
       

       
      And rotating around for those that want to look.
       
       
      I also attempted to create the look of texture by applying leather colors in a series of parallel lines.  I kind of liked it but at the same time I'm not sure that it comes across as any particular type of texture.
       

       
      And that's it for my 2019 exchange.  Next year I might even try to be on time.

      I’m working on trying to get this big guy painted to tabletop standard by the time I have to use him at our next Pathfinder D&D session to represent the Roc King on Tilagos Island in the Demiplane of Last Resort, in the Age of Worms adventure path.

      Painted up these 8 unrelated barbarians as a clan for my Wrath of the Righteous campaign. Tried my hand at non-metallic metal again. This is the result. :)

      This is one I've had "in progress" for ages. I finally mustered the courage to tackle all the eyes and then had fun with drool!
