Reaper Bones 3: Post-Kickstarter Discussion

Recommended Posts

For those that have started painting on this set, how is the paint going on? Has the formula change effected how you need to (or specifically avoid) thinking your paints for a base coat? I have painted a couple nonKickstarter bones from a couple Christmases ago but mostly my experience is with first Kickstarter Bones.

My experience has been the same as what's reported. Paint goes on fine after the same short prep work of taking care of mold lines and washing in warm, soapy water. Dry it off and the paint goes on nicely. I'm painting up the ogres first, and wishing I had picked up that armored chieftan! Just another one to get with the retail release.

 

Edit to add: also, I think something that's excited me is that nothing is on a broccoli base that I've noticed so far. That may have been true in Bones 2 as well, but as someone who hasn't yet attempted to base anything, I appreciate that the bases these guys come on is more interesting.

My wave 1, locked in at the end of the pledge manager, made it to about 20 mins from my house yesterday. It will sit there until Tuesday's delivery. I'm pretty sure I've contemplated the risk/reward ratio of breaking into a UPS facility and ultimately decided that I was 3 compatriots short of a strike team. 

I am patient.

Also a lot of the minis have a slight bowl shape to the underside of the built in base so you no longer need to cut off the copyright notice to be able to glue the minis to a base.

The bones fire giants got a face lift and some growth hormones this kickstarter. I had a plan to make the old fire giant queen the teenage daughter of the new queen. Here is a shot of the size difference.

I went and picked up my box from my parents' house this morning. :wub:

I ordered 2 Ma'al Drakars and wouldn't have been upset if I wouldn't have gotten a retail box....buuuuut I'm happy that I did get one! :bday:

 

Mostly, I wanted to say that I am VERY impressed with the new Bones material! Things aren't as bendy and the details are WAY more crisp. As someone who is solely a painter and not a gamer, I'm really, really thrilled with this level up in Bones quality. I see a lot less boiling and frustration in my future and I'm really looking forward to getting some of these smaller figures painted up rather than just considering them practice figures or conversion fodder. Thank you, Reaper!

Thank you, that's excellent information, and just what I was hoping to hear.

I thought I should take a couple of quick pics of my Bones 3 haul before I get them all cataloged and organized.

 

Here's everything in all its glory:

I'm waiting to see if I can exchange this weird orange one. It seems a bit out of scale and it pounced on my stomach at 6:30 this morning...

Hourly update, 22 orders were processed between 9AM-11AM CDT. A total of 1844 wave 2 orders have been shipped/processed so far. A total of 22 orders have been processed today.


High-end estimates of 1965 total Wave 2 orders leaves about 123 orders left to process.

Per @ladystorm, additional orders and restocks may be run throughout the weekend, but are not required.

Is that orange figure from one of the manufacturers approved for the melt table?

 

Because I think it might weigh enough to get some pretty good trade-in value.

Mine is sitting in the Austin facility. We would be doing them a favor... reducing their deliveries by 1 saving Gas and all that... Heck they should thank us for breaking into warehouse!!!!!... wait you are in Ohio..... nevermind, nothing to see here

@Joe Wells remember. while they do read all the emails, there is going to be a final update concerning what to do with missing/broken/wrong orders. I think they mostly want us to wait for that.

I would appreciate it if people would wait.  Get the update, send the information in the format required, and then I can process them.

 

I'm handling all the where is my stuff emails first.  Missing piece emails are being filed.

 

and the repeated emails that you haven't helped me yet, or I also found this thing or now I'm sending pictures, or how about now? really really are just clogging the box and slowing down the process for Everyone.

Hourly update, 7 orders were processed between 11AM-12PM CDT. A total of 1851 wave 2 orders have been shipped/processed so far. A total of 29 orders have been processed for today.


High-end estimates of 1965 total Wave 2 orders leaves about 116 orders left to process. I do suspect there may be more than that, since the most recent verified lock-in pledge date was still in October 2016.

I love the idea of using the old Bones 1 giants as juveniles of the new ones. Following in their parents' footsteps.

 

As said, I notice the absence of broccoli bases on the giants too compared to the original models.

Well, except for the big orange one.  I imagine that model resists organization...

Ladystorm told me I'm not allowed to sing anymore. But when I'm far enough away from her I do lead the others in a quick rendition of Crazy Train

My goal for today is to hit 1k before 5:00 Central. So in about 90 minutes, give or take. We'll see

<_<

Speaking as someone who is spending the weekend in close proximity to ReaperBryan at PaizoCon, I'm giving a +1, +2, + 3 to Ladystorms sentiment.

Just because the restaurant is playing "The Safety Dance" , it does NOT mean you have to dance and sing along. :blink:

I found it really weird to see Ma'al on the evilbay for more than 400 Euros...

Really????

 

If I would be a potential buyer, I would wait till it hits retail.

This was the Bones version, mind you!

 

I doubt anyone will fall for this.

      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.

      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.
