Reaper Bones 3: Post-Kickstarter Discussion

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

 

If the convention you speak of is one of the Washington state ones, I'm in the same proverbial boat.  However, due to my wife's illness I am returning home each night so likely I'll be up late opening it (assuming my Wave 1 backing is shipped in time to arrive this Friday or Saturday).

Hey Reaper mods. I hope you are going to allow people to post pics of their Bones arrivals here.

If not here, on another thread.

 

Those of us in Zones 2 and 3 who have to wait a bit longer probably want to gurgle over the pics of boxes of plastic.

And those who will get nothing want to see pictures, too.

It's strangely exciting to see those shipping numbers go up, given that I don't get a shipment.

Well, not from Bones 3 that is, but I ordered a few older models from our regional gaming shop, so I'll get to open a box as well.

PaizoCon, this weekend in Seattle. Reaper's running a paint and take table there, and I'm going to be one of the volunteers helping with it. ^_^ I hope your wife feels better soon.

I was not aware that the shipper had that requirement until the day before we were about to start pulling the product for AU, and then suddenly we had to change gears and pull all of CA and then pull AU after, which, you may note, is different from how we had originally said we would do it. 

 

Like I said in the update, we had some changes, and this caused problems, and these changes propagated downwards and caused confusion for the backers. This has not been the fun of previous projects.

 

Gotta love shippers eh? I've run into that problem myself before. "Oh actually, you have to do it this way, not that way". Always a fun scramble to figure things out afterwards.

As a Canadian, I'm just glad that things should still work out in the end.

 

I did have a few quick questions if anyone knows the answers:

-The Canadian UPS labels that had been sent out on the 19th, are those the real ones that will become tracking-active once the product clears customs and arrives in Calgary/Toronto? (that's what it seems from the Update that was sent out Monday)

-Does your post mean that all Canadian orders across all Waves have been picked and boxed with shipping labels, to be moved in bulk to the Canadian distribution centers (and customs)? Or will they be shipped as individual bits, and the distribution center will be the ones to box them and put labels?

-Do we have any super rough ETA or tracking number for the bulk shipments themselves?

 

Regardless of if their boxed yet or not, once they've cleared Customs (God I hope we're not murdered on Duty. Not looking forward to paying UPS crazy import fees on $800CAD of Mini's. Which is in no way Reaper's (or really UPS's fault) I totally get that its the Canadian Government that sets these rules), and been dispatched, the tracking should go live and all should be well, I was just trying to super rough gauge how long that in-between process is. From the time it leaves Texas to the time it leaves Calgary/Toronto.

 

In the end, its been nearly 2 years since this campaign was completed, if it takes a few more weeks for them to arrive, than so be it, I'm all good in the end. I'm still one of the people that feel Reaper has done a fantastic job, and I know that their staff is going though hell to get things going in a crazy rush. Most of them are going to look back at this week and it'll all be a blur for them.

 

(Fun fact: Because I was curious I checked exactly how long its been. Just over 666 days since the campaign ended! Ok, more like 668, but that sounds less cool...)

I actually have a similiar question as I was confused by the update. I thought that the packages for AU were being put together by Reaper (with a label on mine saying ship first, of course ::D:). Then put into a container to be posted out by the Australian partner. However, the update inferred they have yet to be pulled and packed, so the partner has to pull, pack, then post. Does anyone know which is right?

I started digging out my den/workshop yesterday, since I had the day off to recover from a convention.  If mine were to arrive this weekend, it would be perfect  as both sons would be around to claim anything they might want to paint. ::):

How I read the update is that Australian orders are pulled, and on a palette awaiting to be put into a container. I can not tell if they are each packed in individual boxes or not.

There is an acquisitions thread in the off-topic section. We can post up there, or possibly make a new bones 3 acquisitions thread.

I even signed your box as it passed me. I've managed to see about half a dozen names I know at this point.

Cool!

 

I will place it next to the CAV:SO KS 1 box that LadyStorm signed!

 

And the other CAV:SO KS box the you signed Bryan!

 

BIG STOMPY ROBOTS!

Yes, I applied the shipping labels to all of the Canadian orders being sent to the two distribution hubs last week.  These are the actual UPS labels.  These orders were picked and boxed here in Denton and palletized for delivery to the distribution hub.  This is ALL* Canadian orders across ALL waves.

Yes. 

ALL AU bound packages (which translates to ZONE 2-Pacific Zone-AU/NZ/Asia and the lot) were picked and boxed in Denton and palletized for delivery to the distribution hub.  At the distribution hub (in AU) they will apply a shipping label to the box at which time tracking should become available for those orders.

 

Question up thread on what shipper is being used for Domestic: it varies.  The majority will be either UPS or UPS Surepost.  Surepost is a UPS transport from us to your post office where USPS takes possession and delivers it to your door.  Most of the decision on which service to use is based on your package weight.  A very small minority will be basic USPS.

 

All ZONE 3 International, that are not Canada* will be USPS.

 

*exception is the ~65 Canadian orders that Bryan found in his data glitch yesterday

      EDIT: It's live! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/oathsworn/oathsworn-burrows-and-badgers-anthro-miniatures-mouse-dog-cat
       

      We love miniatures. We love tabletop games. We love anthropomorphic animals, from Disney's Robin Hood through The Wind in the Willows to Brian Jaques' Redwall books. So we combined the things we love in our Burrows & Badgers tabletop skirmish game and the accompanying range of miniatures. And our Kickstarter backers have already helped us to grow the range to over 100 miniatures - but now it's time to add some more!

      Some miniatures from previous projects...
       
      Why are we making more miniatures?
      Because we want more characters for our Burrows & Badgers games – my Freebeast warband needs reinforcements, for a start! 
      And we know a lot of other people are looking for more anthropomorphic animal miniatures too. A lot of people are playing Burrows & Badgers now, and many of them have asked for Massive Hounds and a Massive Raptor, so we've sculpted them! Some will want to use them for other tabletop or roleplaying games, while others love painting miniatures, and our figures are perfect for that, full of character ready to be brought to life with your paintbrush....
      And some people just love collecting miniatures; again, we've made this new set of Burrows & Badgers figures perfect for collectors. They are all single piece models, with integral bases, so there are no fiddly parts to be glued on.
      We love making miniatures; we hope you'll love our miniatures too.
       
      Why we need your help...
      We've got 17 new miniatures sculpted, but they need to have moulds made before we can start producing the miniatures. And that's why we need funding; to get the production moulds made, and get the casting process started.
       
      About the miniatures...
      There are other ranges of anthropomorphic animal miniatures out there, but ours are a little different. We didn't want all the races of animals to be the same size. Instead, we've scaled them to each other; so a shrew or a mouse is a very small model, about 20mm tall, and a really big animal like a badger will stand about 50mm tall, for example.
      Each sculpted figure shown below has a scale picture with it, showing its height in millimetres. All our models are supplied unpainted.

       
      The Pledges
      We’re keeping it as simple as possible; there’s an ‘All-in’ pledge, which gets you all the new miniatures in this Kickstarter, and any bonus bits that may come along… there’s also a ‘Pick’n’Mix’ Pledge, if you just want to get a few of the new miniatures. For the Pick'n'Mix, just total up the prices of all the miniatures you want, and pledge for that amount. There's a minimum pledge of £10. There's only six of the sculpts shown so far, but expect more to be added regularly... I'll probably add two or three a day!
       

      ^Minimum of £10

      Pledge Level: The Great £40
       

      Pledge Level: The Small £64

      Pledge Level: All In £99

      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.
