Reaper Bones 3: Post-Kickstarter Discussion

Recommended Posts

I got mine in Ontario today (technically yesterday, Friday afternoon) after the second UPS update Thursday. I've had negative things to say about UPS in the past, but no issues this time.

 

One oddity was the packing slip. I like to use the packing slip to verify contents, but it only had the first lock in, which for me was just Core Set, Mythical Monsters and the Froghemoth. So, basically, missing the 33 other things I added on later. Fortunately, It looks like everything else is there, but I'll need to do a more detailed inventory. Still, it was worrisome at first.

 

I didn't even open all the boxes (except for Ma'aldrakar, I didn't get the retail box so I had to pull it out to dry-fit and see the size for myself). Ma'aldrakar looks great, I really hope to get around to painting it one day.

 

Particular stand outs for me are the aforementioned Ma'aldrakar and the awesome looking froghemoth (I also dry-fitted him, he likes being assembled so he's staying together for now, he can glare at me until I paint him). Sophie looks amazing, I bought two in case I ever wanted to paint up one without the wings, but I love the lantern on the wing, it's a great touch.

 

I really like the Solar as well. I remember almost passing on the Solar after seeing the first released render, but I'm glad I got one, it'll probably be one of my first paints. It is a little smaller than I expected, but a perfect size for a big angel. I had originally thought one might make for a good storm giant wingless, but it's closer to ogre sized. In fact, it looks fantastic next to Izzy's Oni, part of the great looking Pretty Deadly pack. They don't have the same number of toes, but their bare clawed feet do look similar enough that they could be king and queen of an exotic race.

 

The crusaders are a great looking group, I like that they share an emblem with Sir Forscale. I hadn't really noticed that when I ordered them. The Savage Avatars are nice, particularly the gorilla, I think he'll be high on my list to paint. The only issue will be whether or not to glue on the t-rex skull, he looks fantastic both ways. I'll probably end up with skull on, I'd like to paint up a colourful t-rex hide, this would be a perfect opportunity. I didn't spend much time with the dragons since they are in pieces, but Kyphrixis really caught my attention even in the bag, where I assembled the head and tail. The paints of course were another fantastic buy, and the sketch book looks great.

 

So yeah, consider me very happy I spent way too much money on another Great Big Box of Bones. I'm ready for Bones IV.

@Solauren @Suden  Or any other Canadian Backers that have gotten their shipment from UPS

 

Just to confirm (or not?) there was no Duty or Import charges for you guys?

Seriously that is my biggest scare right now. My bones are apparently on their way (ETA May 30th), and the thought of having to pay Duties on top of the nearly $800 CAD I've already paid is getting to me.

But if there's even a slim chance that Canadians are getting their Bones without Duties... that'd be massive to me! :D

I regret not getting  T'raukzul and while I skipped the cemetery expansion because I don't have space for terrain pieces I think it looks great.

*takes box for safekeeping from no-gooders and roving packs of wolves*

Totally unnecessary; I prefer to catch my own Bones, than you very much.

Ah yes, now swells the inevitable chorus of "why didn't I buy the ..."

Yup.

 

RE:--autographed boxes: Very cool!

I highly doubt I'll get one though. If it was being sent to 'ChaosWolf' then yes maybe, but I don't think anyone at Reaper knows me enough to connect my real life name with my forum handle.

This is also one of my concerns considering that it *is* UPS cross-border shipping we're talking about (they're notorious for their customs clearance fees). Worsened by the fact my shipping address is the post office itself.

 

Next week will be "One of those days." :wacko:

oh the agony!  My package is IN my town, cruelly trapped at the local UPS hub... which is closed today so I can't go pick it up.  Sigh.  Must...practice...patience.

Say it again, Corporea: Patience is a virtue.

Not right now it isn't!!!

The UPS truck showed up, we opened the door and he handed us the package (23lbs) and walked away. No import charges. I felt silly holding my credit card waiting for the import duties. I wasn't charged anything.

As funny as that sounds, you know you're going to stay up for as long as it takes, just in case it's true. ::P:

I have no idea what ever you mean.

I had no duty. A "small" box, though. I confirmed by confirmed by phone. The key is theorigin on the label - mine was Toronto. If yours was Texas, then maybe you'd have duty. If a Canadian order was missed in the original pull and sent later, they might have issues, but I dunno.

      About
      Hello everybody,
      We want to introduce you to Iván Sánchez, aka “Blocsanchez”, one of the members of HeraModels. We are thrilled to share with you his first sketchbook “Wasteland”. Within the last year, Iván has been working in the content of this book what wasn't easy to combine with his daily work of miniature concept artist in our small study. Iván is very passionate about traditional drawing, that is the reason why every design in this book is a pencil sketch except for the cover that is digital.
      With this and our future projects, our objective is to create an editorial line of fantastic art. We decided we didn't want a typical sketchbook, collecting drawings from forgotten notebooks where you can find all types of characters; we wanted to make something personal and with an argumental line.
      Then, after a lot of thinking, we decided to make a book collection of different races. “Wastelands” is the first chapter of the collection and embodies illustrations and sketches of barbaric warriors of the barren lands.
      Original Art of "Wastelands" example for pledges #5 & #6  The original book contains 48 pages but with your help we hope this number keeps increasing. We have selected the best designs with more than 50 characters and we hope all of them can be published in the book. We want the book to be handy and user friendly that is why its size is 17x24cm (6,7”x9,5”). Through the campaign, we will unlock different rewards that will make possible to increase the number of pages of this book and will vive you the possibility to get exclusive products only in Kickstarters. In this campaign, you´ll not only get our sketchbook “Wastelands”, it will be possible to choose the option to get an original sketch made by Ivan inside your book or to get one of the original illustrations printed on it. Later we will explain the campaign more widely.
      Original Sketch example for pledges #3 & #4  Later on we will explain every detail of the content in each pledge to make sure that you get what you really want. Besides, while the campaign goes on and we unlock other products we will update the content of each pledge.
        For those who have chosen pledge #5 or #6 you could choose between one of the following original illustrations, you just need to send us an email echen you make the reservation with the number of the illustration that you prefer. You can see the images in a bigger size in our website .

      Story
      The fabric of reality is twisting anew, and Fate herself groans in agony. An adventurer has received an artifact both ancient and strange: the Deck of Many Things, which deals boon and woe with the capriciousness of a fey princess.
      But something else is contained herein.
      Another deck, alike in power, bearing spells and shames never before seen in this world or any other. I present you, wise man or fool, with the Deck of Many Fates.
       Two Decks. Infinite Fates.
      All dungeon masters, veteran and novice alike, have heard the legends of the Deck of Many Things. A treasured artifact which can infuse any campaign with danger, wonder, and delight. But look here: another deck has emerged from behind the veil of mystery. A deck equal in power, yet bursting with epic confrontations and sinister secrets. The Deck of Many Fates.
      Comprised of two decks totaling 49 jumbo-size tarot cards, The Deck of Many Things and the Deck of Many Fates are the perfect accessory for your adventuring party. Our finest sages have also included a guide on the use of these cards, as irresponsible operation may lead to disfigurement, death, and worse. 
      The Deck of Many Things has been an RPG mainstay for over 40 years. It is an artifact of immense power and extreme chaos. Twenty-two cards each contain a strange, potent, and often game-changing effect. Perhaps you shall draw the fabled Flame card, and with it the enmity of a powerful nemesis. Or, just as likely, you may draw the Gem card, blessing you with immense wealth.
      Unlike its relative, the Deck of Many Fates is a relatively new artifact, unknown to most. It contains a staggering twenty-seven cards, each with a new power, curse, or opportunity. The Deck of Many Fates may be used on its own as an independent deck, or shuffled together with the Deck of Many Things to create a 49 card hybrid of magic, terror, and destiny.
      The Deck of Many Things and the Deck of Many Fates includes 49 jumbo tarot cards, sized at 120mm x 70mm (~4.75" x 2.75") in two hand-illustrated tuck boxes, and helpful instructions for use and play.
        Shipping
      Hopefully this step is nice and easy. We've designed a lightweight, tightly-packed product that ships nicely. Domestic (USA) orders ship free, and all International Orders pay a flat $5.
      Campaign Updates & Stretch Goals
      This campaign will have no stretch goals; what you see is what you get. We'll be using the updates to reveal more cards from our mysterious, proprietary Deck of Many Fates.
      Risks and challenges
      Common risks for cards items and RPG accessories typically include product and fulfillment issues. We're partnering with an experienced supplier we've worked with on several major projects like Wolves of Mercia, Derby Day Horse Racing, Michigan Rummy, and Faerie Chess. We're confident in their ability to produce and deliver, as we've seen it for ourselves dozens of times!
       
       
      EDIT: I am in. $15 for 2 Decks, 49 Tarot sized cards with free shipping to US. Seems like a good deal and a small risk.

      Didn't see a topic for this yet.
      2 Limited edition miniatures in 80mm scale. 'Lady Godiva' and 'The Mirror', both based on classical paintings.
      Older miniatures in the series can be bought as an add-on. Comments on previous kickstarters are pretty positive, apparently the casts are good, they're well packaged and sent out on time.
