Well yes. I would be shocked if there wasn't a fulfillment delay. So few kickstarters manage that. The shorter the fulfillment delay the better!

Only 20% of funded Kickstarters manage to fulfill on time. The more successful the Kickstarter, the longer the delay.

 

And 5% never fulfill at all.

Reaper should put the projected fulfillment date as 2020. Then even the naysayers will be pleasantly surprised when they manage to ship, as secretly planned, in 2016.

 

Clearly, this plan is flawless.

And while they're at it, they can add a caveat that any unjustified whining will result in your pledge being cancelled and refunded.  Whiney-butts beware!  :lol:

I would love more Bones cavalry pieces with non-fighter adventurers on horse, such as male and female spellcasters, priests, ranger types, etc. Also some more fantasy cavalry like a dwarf on wild boar, elf on stag, orc on rhino or warthog, goblin on wolf, etc.

You forgot the halfling on an eagle. Other than that, I totally agree.

I'm not a demanding man.

 

All I'm really looking for out of this Kickstarter is one thing.  Just one thing, and I will be the happiest backer ever.  Just one thing that would make this Kickstarter complete, and make me love Reaper all the more.  Something that would bring back those fond feelings of nostalgia, of great adventures, and of the coolest, greatest, and most sophisticated of all races.

 

I'm speaking, of course, of Bathalians.  C'mon, Reaper, more squiddly-mouths.  One just isn't enough.

Fantasy versions I presume?

Great news everyone! I've shifted a heavy financial burden away. I might even get to back.

[/stress]

Now if only I got that podcast of mine out. Whatever it is / was.

There are no appropriate emoticons for my feelings. Unless there is one for drinking liquid from a keyboard that suggests my addiction to workahol.

      One of Bob Ridolfi's sweet little undead monsters from earlier this summer.  I tried some grey skin tones to give her a "definitely not human" look, with the contrasting pale yellow funeral dress.  It's all right, and there's nothing you need to be concerned about here....

      Got my Reaper Bones V goodies a bit ago, and slapped some paints onto the Pumkinhead beholder.  I used Citadel Wraithbone primer, contrast paints, and Army Painter Matte varnish and...  months later it remains slightly tacky.  It's not...  awful.  But it's enough that if I put it away in a box with other minis, I'm afraid it won't mix well.  I've left it out in the sun for a day, thinking that might 'bake' the stickiness out of it...  It did not.  
       
      I got Reaper Bones because I figured I could paint, varnish and throw into a box with all my prepainted minis.  Some of my older bones remain slightly tacky too.  But I figured that with this new round of Reaper Bones, they would have got that figured out.  I've painted up the undead giant, but not yet varnished him and I'm afraid to!
       
      I've read the various Reaper Bones help threads, many of which are very old (and one sent me to Facebook, though it looks like it's no longer available.  I don't do social media anymore, so not sure?). 
       
      Does anyone have any advice to help a guy out?  I'm pretty sure I shook my rattlecan varnish adequately.  I do live in western San Francisco and wonder if the humidity (fog, it's often cool and misty regardless of the season) may affect this.  I try to wait until the weather is clear.
       
      What are you doing to keep your Bones stickiness-free?  Any advice you might have would be helpful.
       
      Update 3 Nov 21: over time the tackiness was getting worse; I could no longer pick up the model for fear of leaving a nasty finger print...  (In particular, the elements that had GW's "Nurgles Rot" technical paint for some reason reacted really badly, and were quite gooey!)  But I finally got a pot of Testors brush on Dullcoat/varnish and it worked like a charm.  The figure is no longer tacky.  If that changes, I'll come back to update again!  🙂

      Hi all, just thought I'd share a couple images of my first Reaper mini painted up. It definitely seemed strange not priming something before getting started (typically print my own lately in resin, so have to prime those), but I wanted to try one of the Reaper products.
       
      I am by no means a pro, but each mini seems to get a bit better - constructive criticism welcome - I know I need to get a better photo setup sometime - maybe when the basement reno is done 🙂
       
      Next up is Boerogg Blackrime the Frost Giant...I love doing monsters so they're on-hand when needed for our D&D campaigns 🙂
