I think I'm going to have to start to doing these twice a day just to keep them manageable for everyone to read. :wacko:

BLOOD, BONES AND BOOOOOOOOOOOT!!!

Ron Hawkins 13 minutes ago
Okay, I'm sure you guys are really sick of me doing this to you...but I just got some pictures from Bob Ridolfi and Julie Guthrie. Wow!

Ron Hawkins less than a minute ago
Hint: the Guthrie piece is another beast that goes back to the old days. The inspiration comes from the S series of modules. Talin drew the art.

Ron Hawkins 35 minutes ago
The piece that I saw pics of is not a manticore. But, just sayin', I LOVE S4.

Izzy "Talin" Collier 24 minutes ago
Okay, here's a sample from the photos Ron just got from Bob Ridolfi and Julie Guthrie. I hope you find it as exciting as I did!http://s1333.photobucket.com/user/Izzy_Gremlin/media/Reaper Kickstarter/Teaser10_22_01_zps9c1c66f1.jpg.html

@Baph - This morning I avoided the comments for the hour after the reveal. Not in good headspace today.

Bryan Stiltz 4 minutes ago
Pledge totals are great today, and tonight's crowd is awesome, I'm dealing with some personal life things.

since I think it got buried =P Wooly octopuses [octopi?] for Bryan, and now something for Ron for being awesome:http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d58/Sirithiliel/For KS Friends/SmallGiraffe2_zpse730bc20.jpg

Bobby Jackson is going to be sculpting the Sophie here at Reaper this week and this Saturday at the Kickstarter Countdown party. If you're going to be at the party, stop and ask Bobby for a peek!

onyxGuenhwyvar 25 minutes ago
@Ron - will you put up pictures promptly for those of us not luckly enough to be there?

Ron Hawkins 24 minutes ago
OG - we'll certainly reveal her when she's done. :)
~~~~~~~~~~~
Izzy "Talin" Collier 25 minutes ago
@Onyx: I feel like a heel for not knowing her last name, but we have a young artist named Ivyetta who stops in at the shop from time to time. She was hoping for some art advice (as if I weren't the last person on Earth to ask for advice), so we sat down, sketched, and "talked shop" for several hours. Troll-Slayer Sophie was one of the sketches we collaborated on, and I think it's something she can really be proud of. :)

soulchief 26 minutes ago
@Reaper, at the start of the kickstarter someone asked if Canadian orders will be shipped from Canada to prevent customs fees. You said something like it's still being looked into. Has there been any progress in that?

Bryan Stiltz 25 minutes ago
@Soulcheif - I'm pretty sure that it's not going to be possible this time - we had problems with it last time.
~~~~~~~~~
Cortney Sauk 34 minutes ago
Hey while I have the Reaper guys here... I'm in Canada and am thinking about using a company called Kinek for having the package shipped to them in the US. Is this possible so I do not have to pay shipping? (FYI they cost $5 for a package up to 100lbs and hold it for 14 days)

Bryan Stiltz 29 minutes ago
@Cortney - if the destination address is in the US, we will not charge shipping. But we also might not include the correct paperwork, since it is not required for US shipments, so that may be an issue you will want to discuss with them.
~~~~~~~~~
Cortney Sauk 44 minutes ago
Please tell me there's more add-ons coming! I'm wanting to give more, but I've already added everything I like... Also, AMAZING work on the worm. That thing is beyond beautiful

Bryan Stiltz 40 minutes ago
@Cortney Sauk - Very likely. We're trying to fill out the Expansions, too, and running out of time, so we cannot promise. Oh, expect that there's those ruins...
~~~~~~~~~
Andrew Golubiewski about 1 hour ago
classic monster? must be a dwaf, we don't have enough dwarves. Have I mentioned lately that you guys sell a lot of metal dwarves? Established populatrity means probable value on all those dwarf bones molds coming out. By the way, we need more dwarves.

Ron Hawkins about 1 hour ago
Andrew - just for you, I *think* there is one more dwarf in this Kickstarter, just for you. Wait for it though.
~~~~~~~~~
Ron Hawkins about 1 hour ago
Wiebe used up all of his green stuff on one of his recent pieces. It's kind of big.

Bryan Stiltz about 1 hour ago
@Ron - You think?
~~~~~~
The Gleeful Grognard about 1 hour ago
So... ron... -ahem- we looking at that third video that was talked about after the last one was released as something that we will see with our 48hours left update? :P :D

Bryan Stiltz about 1 hour ago
@Gleeful - I am looking at a third video, yes!

Ron Hawkins about 1 hour ago
GG - probably before then. :)
~~~~~~~~~~
The Gleeful Grognard about 1 hour ago
@Ron: Did you guys always have plans for the tentacles or was that gained from these comments or the forums?

Ron Hawkins about 1 hour ago
The idea for the tentacles has probably existed for a while, but the lightbulb moment hit me at Gen Con. :)
~~~~~~~~~~~
Jason Wiebe about 1 hour ago
hi! its a sculptalong with kickstarter kinda night

Ron Hawkins about 1 hour ago
I think the classic monster piece that you just sent us is going to make an appearance very soon...
~~~~~~~~~~~~
Ron Hawkins about 1 hour ago
@DSM - I believe that while the demon's base should fit within a 1" square, he should be more of a large monster with the wingspan.
~~~~~~~~
Ron Hawkins about 1 hour ago
@Albert - there are no plans to break up expansions. Once the models are in retail, they'll be individually packaged though. :)

(Included because this still seems to be asked a lot...)
~~~~~~~~~~~
Ron Hawkins about 1 hour ago
Regarding the Shadow Demon, that's the one that I hinted at being inspired by the 80's cartoon. Just fyi. :)
~~~~~~~
Mario Stojcic about 1 hour ago
@Ron How many of the purple tentacles are going to be in each pack once it hits the retail? 8?

Ron Hawkins about 1 hour ago
Mario - unknown at this time, maybe 2, maybe 4. Probably not more than that though. Ask me in 2014. :)
~~~~~~~~

Though I didn't want to copy/paste the whole exchange/explanation, Bryan talked about a guy from the first KS who was firmly convinced that he was going to be getting metal miniatures, and was quite upset at Reaper that a) the Bones were plastic, and b) Reaper refused to replace them with metal minis. :huh:

~~~~~~~

Ron Hawkins about 1 hour ago
Extra Sophies will be $2. Kit will get those into the pledge calculator as soon as he can.
~~~~~~~~
Arianne Garrett about 2 hours ago
hey Ron, how is Julies Sculpt coming along?

Ron Hawkins about 2 hours ago
Arianne - which ones? :)

Arianne Garrett about 2 hours ago
@Ron, the one with orc with the scar over her face.

Ron Hawkins about 2 hours ago
Arianne - say again?

Arianne Garrett about 2 hours ago
@Ron, the sculpt with the scar on its face.

Ron Hawkins about 1 hours ago
Arianne - oh, *that* one. You'll see it soon. :)
~~~~~~~~~
(but then when a backer responded happily to the prospects of Talin's female Oni orc with the scar on her face being in the KS, Ron responded with: )

Ron Hawkins about 1 hour ago
Coralline - that was a typo - there is no orc in this KS with a scar on its face.

(so now I'm confused. :mellow: )

 

EDIT: I found a post that explains the exchange between Arianne and Ron better:

 

Note: It's not an Orc, I threw that to try to trap Ron. I'm sorry. :( But it is a she, has a scar over her eye and is being sculpt by Julie Guthrie. Which means its full of awesome.

pearson kurt about 2 hours ago
when do they take the cash out of your account? 3 days? Dec?

Ron Hawkins about 2 hours ago
pearson - on the 26th when this thing closes.

DSMiles about 2 hours ago
@ReaperBryan: Any chance of getting a "Talin's Concept Art Made Flesh (or Bonesium)" add-on this late in the game? Like an add-on made up entirely of minis that Talin has done the concept art for (e.g. the two Skoli, Schumacher, Monique deNoir, Kiri, more Sophies, etc).

 

Bryan Stiltz about 2 hours ago
@dsmiles - so much of this KS is already based of Talin art, you guys just didn't see the art because we got the models.

~~~~~~~~
Andrew Golubiewski about 2 hours ago
Seriously... one of the demon lords in that optional has traced paper cut-out wings... is that what we're going to get with that optional?...

Bryan Stiltz about 2 hours ago
@andrew- no. Final version update coming ASAP. Likely tomorrow.
~~~~~~~~~
Cerity "Legendary Bottlejak" Silverhawk about 2 hours ago
So back to the gelatinous cube.. Plastic demo shows one piece top. Green was two piece... For a total of three pieces. Which will we be getting?

Bryan Stiltz about 2 hours ago
@cerity- we do not know yet how the engineers will cut it for molding. The prototype was 3 parts, but they change cuts regularly.

Huzzah!

Thanks OneBoot,

 

Shame Reaper has no sense of humor, the worm joke was the funniest damn thing to happen all day and I was reaping karma off of my reply! :blush:

 

Funny to some, but not all and rules are rules. What's so wrong with wanting to keep this board family friendly?

 

 

I'm not sure who wouldn't find it funny, and I didn't say anything about it not being family-friendly It was a clean joke, and it set itself up perfectly. I broke no rule. By the Mod's admission we're all older than 12, and I've heard far worse spew from the mouths of kids younger than 12.

 

 

 

If Ladystorm says a line was crossed, a line was crossed and if somebody wants to argue, this is NOT a democracy - this is a board owned and paid for by Reaper. And right here, right now, today, that means ME. If you want to debate with me on my boards whether what was said was appropriate, we can have that debate. Bear in mind I have the banhammer and have never lost that fight.

 

So keep the personal attacks (now removed) and the biological jokes out of it and we're fine. Refuse, and I will remove your ability to post on our boards.

I rummaged through the module. So many choices in there.

 

Edit: After reading Bryan's post I like him even more. Have not seen a response like that since I ran a fan site for Jagged Alliance: Deadly Games with a friend on his server and we had issues with some people on the forums. He would show them how things worked in HIS world.

I apologize for that I know my comment lead to it but it was ment as an observation and not a joke....well not entirely...

Breaking news!!!

Steve 13 minutes ago

@Reaper Bryan, so I have to ask, with baited breath, and fingers crossed, is there any way... any way at all, that post KS we can get Troll Slayer Sophie sculpted in metal?

 

Ron Hawkins 6 minutes ago

@Steve - chances are good for this Sophie to be in metal too.

~~~~~~~~

 

Now, bear in mind that Ron only said that chances are good, NOT that it is guaranteed to happen!

 

Still, just thought I'd share for those of you wondering whether this was a possibility or not. :)

 

Huzzah!

I would be tempted to get the metal version...if it came out sooner than the KS2

Hearing a metal Sophie is a possibility is good news. Thanks OneBoot for your news gathering and breaking updates. ::):

 

Hearing that some forumites have been naughty enough for Ladystorm and ReaperBryan to step in is NOT good news. ::(:

 

Oh well. Only a few days left before we can get back to what we call normal around.

Hey, $71K today! That's the highest total since the third day. Looks like we're hitting this final stretch pretty strong; can't wait to see what happens after the two-day email goes out.

 

EDIT: And despite someone's claim that we weren't getting backers fast enough, we actually got 115 today, the most since very early in the campaign with the exception of the Paizo email spike.

I want Mashaaf to come with her own version of Slurms McKenzie (RIP) :lol:

Seriously though, I was ambivalent with the sketch, but damn Kevin killed that sculpt.

 

 

 

Oh yeah, just under $10K before Sophie is a reality. :bday:

If you traderd her in last time you don't get one this time. You upset her.

Fortunately I kept my Sophie, bought the UL Sophie and bought the Sophie Box Set (even though I already had all of them).

 

 

I went for all the Sophie's as well. I didn't have any previously so whilst I've not had the joy of collecting them as they came along I wasn't going to miss out on that many Sophie's at once.

Just some bits from Talin in this one.

 

KHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAN!!!

 

 

 

Izzy "Talin" Collier about 1 hour ago

@Kristoph: Oddly, no. Jim Neil first came up with the idea of a "Sophie the Succubus" mascot for Reaper. I re-vamped her a couple of years later, and made her a little more "family friendly" (i.e., more cute than sexy, and with clothes on.)

~~~~~~~

Izzy "Talin" Collier about 1 hour ago

@Chris: No official word on materials for Mashaaf, one way or the other. I think Ron is weighing his options...

~~~~~~

Izzy "Talin" Collier about 1 hour ago

Part of the perceived "mass exodus" also involved local backers (i.e, near Dallas/Ft Worth) dropping their EB and Wave 1-3 pledges, and picking up Wave7 pledges - since they can just come by and pick up their orders once they start hitting fulfillment.

That, and of course there were the people who were angry because they don't like their free stuff. ;)

~~~~~~~

Izzy "Talin" Collier about 3 hours ago

In the next couple of days, Julie Guthrie and Bob Ridolfi are bringing in the sculpts for another couple of things you didn't realize you needed. :)

~~~~~~~~

Izzy "Talin" Collier about 3 hours ago

@Frencois: Making Mashaaf hollow (and squeezable) was something we tried to talk Ron into. He didn't agree to it, but he didn't NOT agree to it, either. ;)

~~~~~~~~~

Stephen Brewer about 3 hours ago

Quick question. If I move before my wave ships out...will I be able to change my address? It would probably be a few months prior, if at all (say...summer). Just wondering if anyone would know. =)

 

Izzy "Talin" Collier about 3 hours ago

@Stephen Brewer: If you let Reaper know before your fulfillment package ships, they'll change the address for you.

 

Izzy "Talin" Collier about 3 hours ago

@Stephen Brewer: Also, be sure to change your address in the Pledge Manager, since that's where the pulling invoices and shipping labels print from.

~~~~~~~~

Cerity "Legendary Bottlejak" Silverhawk about 4 hours ago

@Talin Do we thank you or Ron for the ... Contemporary figures including angels...of sorrow??

 

Izzy "Talin" Collier about 4 hours ago

@Cerity: Surprisingly, I had nothing to do with those. Or the call box (Okay. That's a lie: I just remembered that one was all my fault). Or the *spoilers*...

~~~~~~~~~~

Wayne Williams about 4 hours ago

@Izzy I loved both the Sophie and the Mashaaf art! I really wish that we could see all your concept art, even for figs that have already been sculpted.

 

Izzy "Talin" Collier about 4 hours ago

@Wayne: Onyx is correct; I'll probably put out a sketchbook in a few months (plenty of time to recover from Reaper's KS). ;)
I'll be working with the Reaper crew on it, so we'll probably e-mail everyone a heads-up when it happens.

      Hello everyone, I'm currently working on an Ogre gang and completed the painting on this model last night. This is a 77455, Ogre Smasher sculpted by Bobby Jackson. I swapped the top of its club with that of the 77454, Ogre Clubber. I also added three more skulls at his waist belt. it was all painted with Reaper MSP paint. I will complete the base later since I may add more elements to it.
