Bones Kickstarter #2 Pre-discussion

Recommended Posts

Bones kickstarter 2!!??!!

 

Haven't got my kickstarter 1 stuff yet.....tis stuck in UK customs. took them two weeks to get round to asking me for more info about the package... (not complaining how long it's been, twas a really big successful kickstarter, which probably took Reaper by surprise)

my parcel went into USPS 19th August, tis now 18th September and thanks to UK border agency, I'm still waiting. Though when they arrive it will be a great surprise as to what is in there (memory span of a ....thing with a short memory span) so i have forgotten what else there is. bound to be dragons ( i like dragons)

 

 

My Sophies are going to all old and wrinkly (hmm must have to get some new ones then) by the time i get them.

 

Though that means the motorcycle could be a vintage model!

As far as problems with KS1, I just got a notice that they are giving me a credit of 2x the cost of the figure that was a problem that I can spend how I want. That is probably better for both of us. I will have to spend more to get free shipping, but I get twice as much. They do not have a small shipment that they need to eat the cost of shipping and they are done with my KS fulfillment.

Aw, crap! I just realized why the KS hasn't started yet...

 

 

SPILL THE BLOOD! SUMMON THE BRYAN!

No No. Bryan is a Kaiju now. We need to summon him with a chorus of school children, or find another monster for him to fight through the ruins of Ft. Worth.

wait, what??

 

Reaperbryan's really neat

He is made of Bryan meat

We are eating reaperbryan!

 

No. That's just... No.

SOD is short hand for shortage/overage/damaged. Refers to all the fixes they are dealing with, not the original orders... Even at 0.1% error rate, that would still mean fixing a few hundred thousand miniatures give or take a few ten thousand or so. Mind boggling numbers really...which makes me laugh a bit when people get a little bent into pretzels when they complain that Reaper hasnt fixed their order yet and it had been a week since they emailed them about it.

I think your math might be 'slightly' off on how many miniatures need to be fixed...

does anybody know the difference between the two warlord rulebooks in that reaper has in there store do you need both to play?

Different settings and factions, but one or the other will do as they both have the rules. If you're not too fussed about which factions you get, I'd recommend Savage North as the better quality book (it's hardback and colour).

Thanks, part of me is hoping that Bones 2 is centered around the warlord game. I would be cool to be able to fill out each faction with bones minis. similar to wrath of kings even.

Yah, math while math overloaded from FY issues...move the decimal over to the left a few spots. In any case, 6,000 or so is still a ton of potential problems at a very high rate of accuracy. More likely that it would be something closer to 3 or 4%. I know one of our warehouse specialists is very happy with 99.1% accuracy and they do nothing but logistics.

Ok. Stopped by the main store today in Denton, said they were planning for end of September but will now be October. Also said it's likely to be mostly completely new mini's, stuff that's not already pewter. Also said none of that is concrete yet but that is what's being discussed.
