CAV: STRIKE OPERATIONS Kickstarter

Recommended Posts

I don't tend to look at comment sections much after a project is completed (hell, I'm barely able to look at them whilst a project is running), but there really isn't much going on in the comments with this project. I do find it odd that a backer who complained and has now been refunded sees fit to keep complaining though.

 

I guess I've been lucky, as I've rarely come across real messes in the KS comments section (though I don't frequent them very often, and even less once a project has funded).  Still, I'm curious if this is the same troll that was causing problems during the campaign.  If so, I'm really curious to know if project creators have any way of blacklisting an account on Kickstarter.

Different individual.

 

No, there is no way to blacklist an account.

Yeah, I'm sure it would be fine for Reaper to be able to Blacklist commenters but giving project creators that power would be giving a huge tool to anyone wanting to run scams on KS.

Bah.  Haters gonna hate.  At least then we have a live target to use for firing practice.   :devil:

Hope production continues to move along, I'm eager to compare the quality of the new plastic to my old metal models!

 

 

Have to say though, last line of that update stung a bit -_-

Well if you make up for a NEMPA Paint Day, I can bring ones that I have for you to look at.

I'm trying! I've actually seen the white plastic, Talae showed me his when I was still in Arizona. I'm hoping the grey will be better--it was suggested at some point that they were tweaking the composition for sharper details.

Ok, well never mind then. As for paint day, make when you can. No pressure.

 

*puts away the "Welcome Back Doug" sign.

 

I think I failed my "communicate on the internet" roll :unsure::rolleyes: 

 

I really want to make it to a paint day soon--I'm just bummed it can't be sooner, not feeling pressured or anything like that. The moving truck's showing up at our new place in NY on the 24th, so I'm kinda out of luck for October -_-

 

As for the CAVs, I appreciate the offer, I've just seen the white ones already. Though I didn't have any of my metal models there for a direct comparison, which could be interesting. I think the only one I have in metal is the Specter...

Woo! CAV sometime in the medium range future! Ok well probably not that soon, but paper work implies that production is at least mostly done.

So has there been any speculation on the possibility the Manufacturer may have caused artificial delays because Reaper got too picky about quality?

No but what may have happened is that after Reaper rejected some of the models they knew this one was late and just moved onto the next job while fixing this one in the down times. It's the way a lot of Asian manufactures work. Not spiteful, just the way they do things. And one of the reasons Reaper tries to stay on top of them by approving molds as they are done before the real production starts so that models aren't wasted.

It seems reasonable that they don't want to upset the next customer's timeline.  I mean, for example, how many times have you had a doctor's appointment screwed up by the previous appointment taking longer than expected?  :wacko:

You know, that whole scenario seems off to me. So I suggest another. The injection machines don't even get scheduled until the molds are all approved. And once that happens, the queue for the machines isn't small.

 

I'd also posit that more frequent customers get priority. Happened in my stepfather machine shop. AT&T placed an order for copper parts every three months like clockwork. Those got priority over something that got ordered every other year. Maybe. If not delayed by two months before the order was sent in. So it's entirely possible that a more frequent customer bumped into the line a little.

 

Not that I mind the delay. Just more things to pile up and become "getting ready" to be painted.

 

EDIT: Just to be clear, I don't know if that's the way it is really working. Total speculation on my part.

      As I backed Brayan's previous KS but never got my files (I got a email in regards to this KS) but a quick email response & I had my file that I backed + a bonus file. Love the look on the minis. The goblins can be new PC gobs for ReaperCon We Be Goblins. Love the Oriental dragon as well.

      Hi all,
       
      Next month (probably the 14th) we will launch our latest project called Dragon Masters. Here's a little preview in the form of some of the concept art and renders created.
       

       

       

       
      We will share some more pictures soon!
