For anyone who was interested, the clockwork dragon is painted and up in the preview gallery, Kaladrax is painted awaiting photography and I'm mostly through Nethyrmaul. I hope to be done with it by m

Hello everyone! First post here on the forums.   I am a homeschool mom, and while taking my son out to do some donations to a local shelter, we stopped by when my son spotted a local game store. H

.     .     .     .

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.

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.

      Here's a simple one for you.  Painted the Great Worm as a Purple Worm to the surprise of no one.

      Couldn't find a better thread to post this in.  Has anyone else ever had mold grow on their minis?
       
      I have a set of bones that have been sitting around for about two year. They were super glued to a reaper base. Baking soda and super glue were used to blend the integrated base into the round base. There's also a layer of cheap craft paint as primer.
       
      These guys have been sitting on my painting table in a former sun-room for about two years. 
       
      I noticed the bases had yellowed a bit, which I've begun to notice on some of my other older bases using baking soda as a basing material. But when I checked on them I noticed small fuzzy looking orange tufts. 
       
      I can only assume this is mold.
       
      The only things I could think of to cause this are the baking soda or the water used to clean my brush before priming. 
       
      Has anyone else seen this?

      Hello again!  I'm back with an assortment of Bones that are serving as my Rangers of Shadow Deep solo party.  Decided I wanted a classic fantasy look, but didn't want to fall into the cliched green cloak look.  With that stipulation, I settled on a more autumnal color palette, and tried to keep this aesthetic across the entire party, without anyone looking like they were wearing matching uniforms.  I'm pretty pleased with the results and I tried to push myself with each mini.  What do you think?

      I have only played a few scenarios of Rangers of Shadow Deep, and I'm honestly not sold on the whole solo-game thing.  But if the game has done anything for me, it has given me motivation to paint more and has given purpose to some of the things I already have painted.  I already ordered some extra gnolls and ghouls to meet the required numbers and will likely be showing off some monsters soon.
       
      Which character do you like best?
       
      What games have motivated you to paint those piles of shame?

      Hello Forum friends, I'm being quite productive lately  Gonna show you the most recent mini I painted: Small world Sophie.
      Ok, I have to say I'm in love with this chibi minis, I'm gonna buy lot more cause I find them so funny to paint!
      About the paint job, well, anytime I manage to paint Sophie, my color choice for her wings is always Violet (or purple if you prefer) and so why do not make my life easy and go for a complementary palette? So, purple and yellow. Easy peasy...
      Anyway, this is the result, I'm quite happy of her, I hope you'll like her too.
      As always every C&C is more than welcome :)
