Estimated Turnaround time on Bones replacements?


Recommended Posts

Hey, all...

 

I was wondering if anyone had a current estimate on how long it's taking Reaper to go through the "help" emails, and correct issues.

The reason I ask is that I sent an email to them last Saturday (24th of August) letting them know that my Cthulhu came with two right arms, and no left,

and I have yet to hear anything from them in regards to receiving the email, or getting a replacement, etc.

 

I realize they probably have a fair few emails to go through, so am I jumping the gun if I send another email? Or have I somehow been missed out?

 

Any ideas?

Yes, this is an auto-responder, but we wanted you to have a confirmation your message was received.

We'll be getting to you soon.

Thanks!

I don't know. On the one hand, that's handy. Save Reaper shipping, put it all in one package. On the other, I think the scale of replacements might make it so the less complication the faster and better it's resolved.

 

Unless a Reaper Peep says otherwise, I'd be inclined to keep my replacements for defects separate from my purchase orders. It might be different people assigned to each task.

 

Without knowing when your fixes will be sent, you'd basically be waiting an unknown amount of time before being allowed to add a purchase order on - and if that purchase order includes Bones, some of what you want might be sold out by then.

 

It's a lot simpler to keep the two separate. Buy what you want, wait for your replacements to get done.

I emailed them today about a missing item from the Vamp box, but I also asked them whether it will be possible to work out some approach where they can (for example) issue a credit to my webstore account for the cost of postage for the missing model (plus a note that I am owed the model itself as a replacement) and I can then purchase a couple of other models from their normal lines, and have the entire thing packaged in one hit. I figure it's better for Reaper if I am buying extra models that I might otherwise not bother doing right now, and the cost of sending this replacement is not entirely a loss to Reaper.

 

I guess I'll just be waiting patiently until the several thousand emails that got in before me are processed and see what they say. I can wait.....now that I have all the rest of my Bones to play with!

I have two right C'thulu arms as well and sent a note to [email protected] and got a response back fairly quickly saying they'd be getting to fixes as soon as they could after shipping out the kickstarter packs.

I got a quick email response from them also. My question is when they'd begin sending the missing stuff. But I am patient.

Thanks to all for posting about their experiences. I think I will send along another email, as I still haven't heard anything yet beyond the staple auto-reply. That, and the LGS I work for is STILL waiting for their Kickstarter package, which is now well past overdue (even for Canadian transit), so I believe an email for them is in order too.

I think you've just got to be patient and wait for them to get round to you

 

(I got my acknowledgement of my missing bits on 29th July but don't expect anything until they officially announce they Undertaker is all shipped)

 

more emails they need to answer just slows everything down

      This one has been on the desk for a long time. I really like the sculpt, but the cast is a pain as I find most of the older human sized Bones models. The Face was atrocious. Luckily he has a big hat. The photos are washed out but give a good idea of how he looks. He is too shiny for my tastes as the newer Testors Dullcote doesn’t seem to work as good as it used to. Unsure how I ended up going from a coal black duster to green, other than I had too much green paint out for the Marines I was trying to get off the shelf of shame. 



       
       
      One down and thousands to go! 😀

      Bad photos, bad Bones cast, and tabletop paint job of Balto Burrowell the Gnome Wizard. Painted this one up as my sons kid character in hero kids. Fuego is a young kid who can cast some fire spells and has survived three adventures and he was on his own in the last one. 
       


       
      I am really beginning to loath these older human sized minis, but this is the closest I had to a human child for his character. Fairly simple base coat, washes, and highlights. I was having a lot of problems with my skin tone paints being too thin (even after several minutes on the vortex mixer). I guess that is the pit fall of no painting for months outside of terrain.

      So here they are. The Ogre Squad. You can see the WIP here.
       


       
      I love how nonchalant and casual this guy looks.

      especially when compared to this guy.


      The oldest of my ogres. Metal and unfinished for years because I was just never happy with him. 

      another angry ogre
      fond of the face(s) on this guy and also the pig. The rope on the barrel was a little frustrating though. It had a mold line right down its length and even though I wasn't doing much line cleaning for these guys that was both a hard one to fix and a hard one to ignore.


      the bones black ogre has the best grumpy ogre face. He painted up nicely with very little clean up to ignore.

      the other metal ogre Kagunk and his amazing shield. This guy sat just primed for a good long while as I just was never sure how to handle the shield face. The older chieften's club face was easier since it was always going to look like wood, but this I had to think about a bit. I think it works pretty well.

      a few attempts at a group shot. Bigger minis are hard to keep all in focus at once.
      There it is then. There are a couple of details I see I still need to do and the metal chieftains need to be sealed. But otherwise that is it for this lot. I did by the other ettin in bones and I might order the other ogre leader and I think I have a bones half ogre around somewhere.  If I paint them I may update this with new squad members. We will see.

      My waste paint receptacle for my ogre squad. Nothing special or exciting but he's done too.
      probably his best side here.

      This side no so much. I don't know think he translated into bones as well as some of the others like the ogres. But then, he's just a mook so who cares. 

       
      Oops! Looks like I hurt his feelings. He'll feel better when he's amongst his metal brethren. He has a much better base than they do.

      A dumpster.  I started painting it as part of Aaron Lovejoy's blending class.  Then had a ton of fun weathering it.
