Reaper Bones 3: Post-Kickstarter Discussion

Recommended Posts

In theory, my package is being shipped or is about to at this time. But honestly, even if I was dead last I would still be happy because I know that it's coming for sure, and I've never had a doubt that it will. My mind is at ease because I know that Reaper is true to their word and work hard to get everything fulfilled. It doesn't mean that everything has gone great, but it doesn't have to. Life itself will never be perfect; delays and setbacks are the norm in life, Kickstarter or not. Things won't go smoothly because there is a limited amount of things that we control, and the rest is the roll of dice from the rest of the world. What matters is not what we can't control, but what we do with the things that we -can- control. Every single employee at Reaper has my thanks for putting everything that you can into your work for us, because it really does show.

I saw it too. Ouch. 

 

Also saw them ship a package to Valhalla. Oh yeah. Had to take a screenshot of that... for giggles. :lol:

  Reveal hidden contents

 

 

 

 I wish I'd been able to take screenshots of some of the places I've shipped things to over the years, lol - I once sent a package to Hell. Then a few years later I sent another package to a different Hell, lol.

 

Not to mention Electric Avenue, Santa Claus Lane, Indio Muerto Street (yes, "Dead Indian" Street)...

 

 

 I can't even remember what wave I'm supposed to be in... Since it's spring and I don't have to worry about my paints freezing, now that the boxes are shipping I find I still don't particularly have any driving need to know exactly when my package will be showing up. Unless something I've ordered has a specific deadline for its intended use, I rather kind of like forgetting all about my incoming stuff and being able to come home after work to find something in my mailbox or on my stairs and have to stop for a second and check the address label to figure out what it is...

This has not been the fun of previous projects.

 

IIRC, Last KS, Reaper had a carrier who told Reaper how to fill out certain ROW forms -- and was wrong.

While not a major time delay, it must have been frustrating. I hope you don't have to go through that again.

 

Reaper, CMON, Dwarven Forge, and Johnny Lauck are the only companies on my KS whitelist, and Johnny Lauck's retired from KS. :/

Hell is far away from Detroit.  Much closer to Ann Arbor!

Bit worried about my delivery (no notice yet). I've got until Saturday to accept the package in person. Guess the neighbors might bring it inside when they feed the cats.

What i mean is, people are saying there are 2000 backers in Wave 1.

Well, they're pullign Wave 1 right now, but that doens't mean at 2000 orders it will be wave 2. Because parts of Wave 1 were the other zones, and so those orders are already pulled.

So it seems to me that they will get to wave 2 before the 'orders shipped today' reaches 2k, you see? 

not sure if i'm explaining myself correctly, but i'm trying. 

 

I understood you perfectly. :lol:

Bryan, I'm sorry this project hasn't been as much fun as past ones.

 

Yeah, me too. :down:

My pledge got postage! It didn't update until much later in the evening with an estimated delivery date. I checked about 7PM EDT but there wasn't any, but by 9:30PM EDT I had an estimated delivery date of Thursday. It says UPS easypost, and with easy post I was estimating Friday. Yes, Louisville is a UPS hub, but from what I understand it's a UPS air hub. Don't know about trucks. My pervious experience suggests it'll be on a truck headed for Louisville tomorrow, get to UPS on Wednesday. USPS will get Thursday and deliver it Friday. But heck, they know their supply lines, and time tables. Maybe that truck is headed my way while I type this. 

 

And for other people's Info, I'm Wave 1, Locked in 8/19. Can't remember the time. I think it was in the evening.

While having a signed package would be awesome, I definitely would prefer you to have a seamless and smooth rest of fulfillment. I'm sorry it hasn't been fun for you and the team, and I hope the rest of it goes much better.


I look forward to staring at the counter all day tomorrow :P

Well even though a signature is not quite as nice as a stinky shoe, if my package has one, it will still fill me with joy, and if it does not, it's all good.

 

I hope for you and yours, the rest of the process goes smoothly, and if it doesn't, that duct tape and WD-40 is all you need to solve it.

Since I'm in Wave 1, which will probably be done by the end of tomorrow, that means that our pledge will arrive just as we're heading out of town.

 

At least I've arranged with a neighbor to accept delivery on my behalf (and changed the address in the Pledge Manager accordingly). But man, the thought of that lovely box o' Bones waiting for me at home is going to be highly distracting! 

 

Huzzah!

--OneBoot :D

I know the feeling! I won't be back in the states for another two weeks, so my Bones'll be sitting at my folks' place for a little while before I show up.

I did quite a bit of f5ing my gmail today, even though my relativity late lock in for wave 1 pointed to tomorrow being more likely. 

I wonder if the package will fit in the mail box?  Bones2 fit, in a similar mail box, and I didn't get a Mal, but I did buy 2 expansions, paints and a DVD, so maybe?  

 

I am still one mini short on my Bones2 goal before new arrival, I should work on it tomorrow. 

School ends on Wednesday, and elderspawn is hosting a big party that night  So painting time may be more constrained after tomorrow.

      Found this on kickstarter, seems a very useful handle, the idea of the ring is super and  I find that the way it turn upside-down it's brilliant!

      Maybe the shipping for EU it's a bit too hight considering it ship from UK... but at least it is not overpriced. 

      I'm in for the early basic :)

       Morana, 75 mm Morana was once a champion of the sacred order of the Radiant Fist. During a mission, the dark wizard Shahrivar cast a curse over her and traped her soul in a gem. Since then his body has become the wizard´s tool, bringing death and disease wherever she goes.
       Akanksha, 75 mm Heiress to the throne of Shin Kingdom was always known for her diplomatic skills and her sword mastery. In one of her many diplomatic meetings, she received as a gift a pendant in the shape of a heart and, since then, there has been no desire which have refused or a lover that have rejected. It must be said that the tensions between the neighbouring kingdoms are more relaxed than ever.
         Najwa, 75 mm  At another time, Najwa was the high priestess in the Sharated Temple. The Great Tremorrevealed an ancient buried room in the depths of the temple that contained writings from a thousand years ago. She was the first to study them and learned dark and forbidden knowledge which poisoned her body and soul. The high wizard Lucianus tried to save her but it was too late, she destroyed the temple and was lost in the night.
      Here you can see a comparative image of the projected height for the miniatures in both versions. Has you can see, the 75 mm scale will offer an excellent miniature for your shelf and the 32 mm scale will fit in any boardgame and wargames that you can imagine.
          In adition, some parts have been changed from the 75 mm scale to the 32 mm scale to avoid too small details and give the best painting experience.
      Here you can see the reward levels offered in this campaign. You can find the full information about every offer in the reward list of the campaign and, if you have any doubt, don´t hesitate to ask.
                  Here you can see the stretch goals that are planned for this campaign and they correspond to new extra characters that will be fully revealed during the campaign. When we reach the corresponding objective, their miniatures in both versions will be added to the available Add-Ons.  All those who opt for the Fallen Maidens reward may access to a special offer of these characters.
      Although only tree Strech goals are scheduled, I would add new characters in case the campaign reached higher goals. If this happens I will consider your suggestions to create new characters that captivate you.
      The add-ons are additional items you may be interested in adding to the rewards that correspond to your pledge level. To include an add-on, simply add its specified value in € to the amount of your pledge.
      When the campaign ends you will receive the backer survey where you will be able to specify which add-ons you want to include.
         Here you will find the available fantasy football products. If you missed the Asgard´s Sons campaign, this is your chance to get them and obtain exclusive characters.
        All shipping will be delivered by ordinary postal mail. How is it possible that there is a great disparity in the size of the packages, the shipping costs will be calculated according to each order to be fair. When the campaign ends and once the survey is done, the backers will be contacted to collect the shipping costs through Paypal just before sending each order. We can not ship to PO Boxes.
      If you come to Pamplona to pick up your order you will save these expenses and we can also meet in person!
      So you can get an idea of how much these costs will be, here you have a list of the estimated value of the shipments.
      I will do my best to keep these cost to the minimum possible. The shipping is planned to begin in March 2020. However, depending on the production requirements, it might change. 
      For those who opt for the Add-Ons level, it is possible that they receive their rewards sooner, It will depend if I have already available what they want to purchase or it must be manufactured.
      Further information will be posted on the updates of this project. 
      The master model of every miniature will be printed by 3DA Impresiones, a company that specializes in prototype.
      The resin miniatures will be manufactured by GRX Creations known by his high quality.
      Risks and challenges
      All designs are not a final product and can suffer changes during the manufacturing process. 
      Due to production requirements, the planned date to begin the shipping process might be changed due to the amount of the pieces needed and other factors out of my control. However, I will keep you updated on any changes.
      If you do not accept the terms of the campaign, please do not pledge on this project but instead wait for the general release.

      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1915262526/fred-perrys-gold-digger-frederal-reserve-gold-bric
       
       
       
       
       
      It's time to print and release the newest volume of the GOLD BRICK SERIES, the GOLD DIGGER FREDeral Reserve which compiles a multitude of the Gold Digger  spin-offs and ancillary series.   If you supported the previous Gold Bricks, thank you very much, and we hope you support this campaign too. With a load of great standalone and continuity pickup stories, this collection makes a great jumping-on point for any new readers, as well as awesome reading for longtime fans. THESE ISSUES HAVE NEVER BEEN COLLECTED INTO ONE VOLUME BEFORE. Between its black-and-white and full-color issues, the main Gold Digger series is fast approaching the 300-issue mark and is going strong!  (Including material like that being compiled into the FREDeral Reserve, GD is already well past that milestone!)
      If you're not familiar with us, my name is Joeming Dunn, and I run Antarctic Press, a small, independent comic company started in 1984. I have personally collected comics of almost every type and genre since 1974, and I can say that during the past 30 years, we have published some of the greatest and best independent comics out there. Our publishing history includes titles like Gold Digger and Ninja High School. The comic industry has changed over the years, so we have started this Kickstarter program to help introduce new projects from our talented group of creators.
      Prominent among the many series we have published over the years is Fred Perry's ingenious title, Gold Digger, which Fred describes as a mixture of Indiana Jones and Final Fantasy. The idea for Gold Digger was first conceived during Fred's tour of duty in the first Gulf War, and it debuted in Antarctic Press's anthology comic, Mangazine, in 1991. A four-issue miniseries followed in 1992, and a regular monthly black-and-white series followed starting in 1993. The current color series began in 1999 and has continued since then. It is the second-longest-running solo-created title in the industry. Among comic books with female leads, its run is second only to Wonder Woman.  In 2013, Fred was honored at Comic Con International in San Diego, where he received an Inkpot Award for his work on Gold Digger.
      Over the past years, we have released other Gold Bricks as Kickstarter projects. This Gold Brick is outside the numbering system of the main-series Bricks, so no potentially confusing volume numbers this time! If you haven't seen or read Gold Digger, this is your chance to enjoy one of the best and longest-running ongoing series in comics. Like the other Bricks, this one lets new readers join in easily, so you don't have to be shy!
      Over the next few years, we'll go back to reprint the other volumes to match the new Kickstarter printings' format. We want everyone to have nice editions. In addition to reasons already mentioned, during previous campaigns, many backers have asked us to collect these series, since many of these issues are difficult to find. 
      So what is included in this Gold Brick?
      A Science Affair Asrial vs Cheetah GD Minus 18 Gina vs Penny (GvP) Gold Digger Dreadwing's Mymior Gold Digger Adventures WHEW...that's quite a line up.
      What are we going to do with the Kickstarter money?
      Plain and simple, we're going to print and ship the Gold Digger FREDeral Reserve Gold Brick.
      The FREDeral Reserve Gold Brick is over 600 pages, many of which are in full color. Printing the actual books is the biggest single expense. The first print run of a typical Gold Brick is quite costly, as most printers require a minimum run to make it cost-effective. We are thus using Kickstarter to assist us with those costs. If the amount seems high, you must remember that we are printing at least a thousand copies of a 600+ page book. Another cost is shipping: First we will have to ship the books from the printer to our offices, and once we get them, send copies to all our supporters and distributors. Several thousand pounds of books represents a significant shipping expense.
      Here is a breakdown of our expenses.
      Printing: $12,500 (which includes hard and softcover)
      Shipping: $3,000 (Sending a 600-page book is costly, especially overseas.  The cost for shipping just one copy overseas is now around $34.)
      Fees: $1500 (Kickstarter takes their fees off the top)
      Handling/Supplies: $1500 (We have to pay for boxes and pay people to pack those boxes.)
      That does not include cost for sending the large PDF files to all the supporters and other miscellaneous costs.
      Those basic expenses total $18,500.
      So what do you get?
      The brick is 6 x 9 inches and will contain AT LEAST the series we mentioned above.
