We're doing over $65,000 a day now - the goal spacing at $70,000 per goal for the two that are visible is still on target for hitting one a day.

 

Everybody's freaking out about it being "slow" and I just don't get it. Last week we were doing 40K a day and we're up by over half of that, and we haven't even shown the big stuff that'll be worth a pretty big push.

 

Because 70k is a smaller percentage of the overall amount now.  We're only seeing two significant digits, and 70k doesn't make that second significant digit really move.

 

Yes, I'm saying on a seven digit campaign, only the million and hundred thousand digit is now significant to the average backer for speed tracking.

It "feels" slow because the number is so big now. You are absolutely correct though at $65k+/day this is still going VERY fast. I just backed DGS games' kickstarter yesterday and even though it's funded, it hasn't even hit $10k in 1 MONTH. 

 

People need to really put things in perspective.

 

Anyhow, Bryan and Co are doing a wonderful job with this kickstarter and it's still on track for going over $2 MILLION before it's said and done.

ya i guess our perspectives can be a bit skewed since Reaper has an abnormally successful kickstarter campaign - outside of the gaming kickstarter projects and entering into the funded amounts of some of the other types of larger projects (ie. 2 million range)

What the others have said. The last three digits are really just rounding errors to our eyes at this point. When we git $3000 from hitting a stretch goal, we start vibrating with anticipation.

 

I also wonder if things would feel like they were moving faster if, instead of seeing four future rewards at two values, we saw three future rewards at three values. Of course, that would be more work for you.

Wednesday or Thursday we scale back to showing only ONE goal ahead - the current goal. So when it's hit, we reveal the next one. Right now there's two reveals dangling and that's not going to be that way forever.

@Reaperbryan: I don't think we are going slow.  I think we only slowed down a little bit yesterday and that was probably because of the pledge calculator being down.  But I would love for us to get past 3 million in the next four days.  I am eager to see something amazing unlocked AFTER the five headed dragon beast!

I don't think it's slow right now . . . though I did think it was moving slow last week. Of course, then everyone was all "OMG 30K IN A DAY IS AMAZING WHAT DO YOU MEAN SLOW?!" It nonetheless felt a crawl :lol:

 

Perspective cuts both ways--one project can make 10k and be a raging success whereas another would fail to live up to expectations at a million.

 

People just really wanna see projects in which they're invest kick as much butt as possible. I wouldn't take it personally.

Could we have a pic with sir Forscale and the sphinx and manticore. I would like to evaluate how big they are. And I would like to see other angle of mr. Manticore. They are awesome sculpts. Well done Reaper team. 

 

I'm pretty pleased at the campaign and a bit afraid of the end. I can't wait for Mr. 5 badass head to show. Maybe i'll get a second one to do a gigantic hydra. That would be so cool.

+1 for Sir Forscale. He's was missing and had to be added into so many of the early reveals. I thought by this point he would be in all of the larger monster pics. He's a servant of the people.

Yes, I'll have one to post later tonight.

We can't add him t the pic if we built the art from a photograph of the green, whereas we can add it if we have the model already. We include wherever possible but sometimes we just can't at the same time as when we post the model.

      Goblins!
      So awhile back I was horrified to discover that some old un-finished minis had sprouted a strange orange mold. I gave them a deep clean and seemed to have solved the issue (spoiler: I did not and it's affecting nearly all my minis... but that's a problem for another time).

      As a reward for enduring the cleaning, these goblins deserved to finally get painted.

       
      Goblin Command (77349)
      First up are these two baddies from one of the Bones 2 expansion sets.

       These guys, being earlier bones, are a bit on the rough side, and definitely out-of-scale with the others. But that does help them stand out a bit.
       
      More Photos Below the Spoiler:
       
      Goblin Warriors (77444)
      Next up, we have our "heavy hitters" from Bones 3.

       
      I like these sculpts a lot better. There's a uniformity in the face structure, while still having individuality between models.
       
      More Photos Below Spoiler:
       
       
      Goblin Skirmishers (77445)
      The final batch of wimpier goblins from Bones 3.

      These guys are the mookiest of mooks. Poorly armed, and poorly armored. These are the guys that get sent in first to soak up some arrows.

      It's nice to finally have some painted goblins. Though my bag full of 50+ more unpainted goblins still taunts me.  I have plans to paint them in a few different shades from the yellow-green used here, to a fleshy yellow-tan, to a pale fleshy-grey.  Hopefully that'll break up the duplicates and add some variety.  But that's a future project.
       
      After painting all these guys up I am tempted to finish the set with the Goblin Honor Guard.  They're the only ones I don't have. I can't see myself getting much use out of them, as they're a bit more situational or decorative than practical. But my completionist brain says I need them.

      Reaper has so many incredible and different goblin sculpts.  Which ones are your favorites?

      And a third NPC - his day job is boatswain, so I wanted the armor to not be full plate.... he's currently helping the party do a fetch quest for the captain. I'm pretty satisfied with what I got out for what I put in - but I do notice I seem to have forgotten his eyebrows!

      From Bones 3: Gug

      "It was a paw, fully two feet and a half across, and equipped with formidable talons. After it came another paw, and after that a great black-furred arm to which both of the paws were attached by short forearms. Then two pink eyes shone, and the head of the awakened gug sentry, large as a barrel, wabbled into view. The eyes jutted two inches from each side, shaded by bony protuberances overgrown with coarse hairs. But the head was chiefly terrible because of the mouth. That mouth had great yellow fangs and ran from the top to the bottom of the head, opening vertically instead of horizontally."
