Upcoming reaper releases

Recommended Posts

we came to the conclusion that we'd rather have long range release dates...

I'm afraid I can't agree. I'm impatient. I'm ready to buy the miniature as soon as I see the green. I don't want to see something I really like and have to wait 6 months to buy it. I'm still pulling my hair waiting on some unreleased Klocke stuff.

Cade and Red, you misunderstood.

 

In an ideal world, at Origins each summer when I pick up my JoR, I'd pick up one of every CAV/model right then and there and then buy my duplicates after some analysis of the stats in the book. I know very few gamers who're happy waiting 10 months for that one figure they want to come out..... hell I was about as pissed as I could get waiting for the Ogre and Mantis.

 

As we don't live in an ideal world, and I'm an understanding kinda guy, I (barely) tolerate delays because a) there's nothing I can do about them and b) in the case of Reaper they're nessecary. In GW's case, release lags really irk me off.

 

But what I want, is the ability to tell the player who wants an X when that model will be released. Yes, it'll be subject to change, but I don't want to see that player's hopes get built up every month or so and then get dashed when the X isnt' in the releases. That's very disheartening for the player and bad for the game, very bad for the game in fact (as is releasing a rulebook without 75%+ of the models in it available).

 

So, while I'd like them all to be here right this damn minute, I'll accept a list telling me when to expect it, whatever 'it' might be. And that's something GW and AoG get very right.

I'll admit, I see a mini I want and can't wait to get my grubby little hands them. All we have to do is play the waiting game.........Ah crud, I hate playing the waiting game, let's play hungry hungry hippos.

Frank, release calendars are hard to fulfill for small companies like miniature companies. All sorts of things can go wrong or just slow things down some. They guys at Privateer Press learned that trick real quick, you put out this ambitious release schedule because you want to please your fan base, but then one thing after another builds up and suddenly you are behind on things. Then you get the other side of the coin who begins to complain about late releases or lag times, etc...Either way you can't make everyone happy all the time so you compromise in a fashion tha makes you look like you are trying. Reaper does a pretty good job of letting people know whats coming down the pipe, and you can usually guess within a month or two when that something is going to come out. there are exceptions of course but I think even the peeps who are responsible for releasing the minis change their minds from time to time.
