Bones Kickstarter #2 Discussion

Well, I backed. But with serious trepidation. Debating starting a new thread for this.

 

Reaper offered free shipping to Canada last time, and it was a very major contributor to my backing their project when every one else wanted to charge an arm and a leg. I have no idea what "Actual Shipping Charges" are, since I only ever order from Reaper when (surprise) I qualify for free shipping.

 

At the very least, I would like Reaper to amend their shipping to a fixed price. I'll pay +$10 just to ship, but they must realise that the benefit of backing this project will whittle away to nothing if I end up paying a ridiculous shipping charge. At this point, I'm better off waiting for Bones to retail, then getting free shipping on my "Over $35" order.

 

I've backed, but will likely pull my backing unless this changes.

 

 

are they saying Canada has to pay the same as Australia etc? I've seen others give a discounted price but that kickstarter doesn't let them distinguish.

with the increase in USPS this year I wouldn't be surprised if we in the great white north have to pay something..I just hope it isn't as much as other continents.

Well, the first project ended up being $324.99 for retail vs. $100 (really $75 without sophie) so even if shipping was twice the cost of the vampire pledge, it would still be cheaper than retail.

I put up a $100 'placeholder' pledge. I'm going to wait until the thing gets closer to the end before I up it. Hopefully, I see something that really catches my eye.

 

Early bird? Because if so, don't anybody do that. I came in with 2 remaining and by the time I got through checkout they were gone and I had to get in on wave 2.

 

I will come to your house.

The whole point of buying a bundle was that the cheap cost outweighed all the minis that I didn't want. Given that (so far) I want less than half of these, it doesn't make sense.

No, I think they mean "actual shipping" to be the actual price they are charged by USPS/whichever company for the shipping. So Canada would be less than Aus... presumably.

 

But knowing canadian shipping, it doesn't mean Canada will get them first.

      Osmoticmeld is an experiment! It is a collaborative partnership between the renowned artist Ian Miller and [John Robertson], and was born of a serendipitous meeting over social media many moons ago.

      I must also extend special thanks to both Sebastian Czarnecki and David Pauwels, they have been incredibly generous with their time in giving advice, support and guidance: Seb’s also designed our website and David’s done some fabulous work with his hair sticks!







       


      I've been following these on facebook for what seems like ages as they've been sculpted and am impresses with how close they are to the Ian Miller artwork that inspired them

      Here are two little guys for the new year: Bones vege-(or vegy-)pygmies, sculpted by Kevin Williams. 
      In the game lore, they are plant creatures arising from infestations of russet mold, so I wanted to incorporate rusty orange- and red-browns with the green.  
      (And if you're still in the holiday spirit, you can sing a rousing round of "Rusty the Moldman".)
      I spent about 2-3 hours on each. 
      It was fun to play with a few oranges, reds, and purples, along with the greens. 
      I thought about adding foliage or other material on the bases, but decided to call these two done for now.
      Enjoy!
      - Derek

      As you continue exploring the cathacomb, you catch sight of a ghastly humanoid creature walk in your direction. The stench of death and rot lingered around its undead forms. You recognize with horror, a minion of the dark necromancer queen Kiaransalee. This is a 77159, Ghast sculpted by James Van Schaik.

      Well, finally painted him - and I'm pretty satisfied. I heavily borrowed/copied from this post: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/84520-77594-solar-angel/#comment-1788530, 
       
      It went better than I expected.
