Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

Does anyone know about when the sets from the KS will go on sale? I just didn't order the skeletal monsters and am thinking about the fan favorites 

Sets that I would expect to see up for sale once they are ready will be the Core and the Expansions, any thing else will be retail release.

 

An add-on, for example those skeletal monsters referenced above, would be sold individually retail, not as a grouping.

 

This statement is based on past experience from previous projects as a former employee not based on current information loop.

I'm sure this has been asked before, but my search-foo is weak and I was unable to find it..

Is there a list of who sculpted what in Bones IV ?

It is not there.

So that means they need to send me a new Djinni then?

 

The dress ends and there is a sort of pin at the end of the base, so miscast?

 

Mine had the same issue; the lamp simply wasn't there. It looked like it had gotten snapped off before bagging, the connection is pretty thin. 

 

I emailed and was issued a replacement. 

 

Huzzah!

Thanks for posting the ^ 2nd picture. I had been reading everyone’s comments about this without **entirely understanding. 

 

 

I reccomend one row of Hirst Arts bricks placed under his feet to fix this. Simple. 

 

**I still do not understand the balance issue though. Does the ElephantKing  topple forward out of the throne if it is not glued in place..?

It does topple forward, yes. But the balance issue is due to that... tab (sorry, not sure about the correct word: not a native speaker) made to be introduced into the base. It's irregular, so the throne is not flat on the bot. Again, easy to fix, yes.

Away from my box o' doom, but did this Bones KS include 3" round bases like Bones 3 did?

 

If so, flip the base upside down, blue tack/poster putty to hold the throne in place, then fill with sand mixed with white glue. 

 

Let dry, then pull the throne out again - it should leave a socket that you can use to hold the throne after painting and finishing the base.

 

I might use green stuff to make a tiled base, instead of the sand/glue mix, but the theory remains the same.

I have looked over my pledge and what I got.

 

On the subject of bases it went all over the place.

I know for which ones I pledged, and it seems I got more of one kind and less of another kind.

 

In the end I will not ask for correction on this, but it seems someone just tossed in a bunch of bags of bases and hoped for the best.

I got so many round bases / bags of flying stands suddenly, and some other bases are missing.

 

Anyway...not a real problem, just odd.

I think I will put some of those excess bases in BOGW's / Care Packages and such.

That might mean the base needs to be dipped in boiling water to flatten it.

My Lord of the Jungle sits completely flat. When you place the throne, then the Lord, he tips forward with his feet flat on the ground & he is rising to peer down at whoever he is looking at. Perfect mini.  If you push him back into the chair it looks like he is doing arm dips. Which totally ruins the look of the mini.

 

Granted if the mini came with the round base like Micheal Proctor's example it would be nice but that is easily constructed. To be honest I kinda like him without the round base.

But - despite the "Risks" section on the KS main page - I feel such changes need good communications. It's simply poor form to change things and then say "Well, look at the risks section". They told us about the base of the Barge very soon (though as far as I remember not that it might get scrapped completely otherwise), but the other changes were not communicated well. KS IS about trust and while Reaper has earned quite a bit of it with the way they are generally handling their Kickstarters, such trust is also easily squandered.

When they initially made the announcement about the removal of the base, there was miscommunication there, too. I and a few other backers tried without success to clarify if they "lost souls" they were supposedly replacing the base with were in addition to the "lost souls" already advertised or not, and were basically castigated by KS commentators for trying to clarify it. That was one of the many points where communication with Reaper went seriously to the dogs.

 

As for Argent, I'm seriously considering just selling mine on a certain auction site.

His size was reduced, and he lost a lot of detail. But it was have him at reduced size or not have him at all and be refunded, Reaper chose to have him reduced 

 

i'll keep mine, he will stil make a massive red dragon which is what i had planned, even if he isnt' as massive as he was supposed to be

I dont think he lost detail, but I do think he is scale got messed up.  His tail is too small and his wings are too big. and his feet a alittle off/

either he lost detail, or he's just a very 'soft' dragon when he was sculpted and printed. HIs wings, his claws, there is very little there. Painting his wings is going to be a bother because it's just big stretches of featureless plastic

 

though this is why julie guthrie will always be my favorite dragon sculptor
