A delay is good news for me ... one or two months would be perfect. September not so much ... October would be nice again. But if the Euro stays so weak compared to the Dollar (or even drops more), it will be difficult, as it's not just the pledge level to pay, but shipping and import duties, too. No way of using a shipping hub within the European Union to at least spare us the import duties? Stupid question ... you'd have to pay them then, wouldn't you?

I talked with my girlfriend about my hobby of miniatures a few months ago. Conclusion was that I also like collecting, painting is also fun, but just having them already is a good reason to back. So I am totally going to again! :) Saving money is a go ;)

 

Reminds me, lets paint some more while I can!

Has there been any mention of looking to get an EU distributor? I would love to back a third KS, but shipping and taxes spoils the fun.

 

 

really hope this as well. plus i know that a few others in uk hoping this.

 

a mini i would love to see is one that could be used as kyuss the worm god from age of worms adventure path.

 

cant wait to see photos of the minis they including.

 

also with the delay it gives me more to save cash and see how i can convice the missus to let me get more.

 

do we know how long the delay will be till the kickstarter launches or will it still launch on the 8th?

Oh and yes on the EU distributor! The taxes are not fun indeed. Then again the taxes are a year later and then it feels cheap, but still! Very small kickstarters, to really big ones, have been able to manage? Petty please?

This. Very very much! Import tax charges plus control costs are like 50% in some cases, which is extremely annoying.

 

As you said, almost all KS companies, even the smaller ones, manage to get a EU distribution point - so why not Reaper?!

The least they can so is offer custom services, like even a lot of eBay sellers do.

A big party of the problem with a EU distributor is that as the number of items to pack goes up the more expensive the distributor. And then there's the potential for errors, with the corrections having to come from TX. A potential option might be a core only EU distribution or core plus only any expansions, like the ones in Bones II, reached might be an option.

I don't think anyone blames Reaper for not getting it done or not trying. This sort of stuff is probably a lot more complicated then it looks on the outside. For example for me it looks like 'then who is paying them taxes?' I think we can only hope some sort of deal can be struck. :) /cheer Reaper

Hmmmm....

 

Release pics of a 2ft tall, 5 headed dragon...

Big fan reaction to 2ft tall, 5 headed dragon...

Announce delay on campaign...

 

Is anyone else thinking there's a 3ft tall, 6 headed dragon on the horizon?

 

(But not a 4ft tall, 7 headed dragon.  That'd just be ridiculous.)

      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 🙂
