Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

Recommended Posts

Reaper seems to have done well by listening to what people want and need rather than what they don't want or need.

Wooo, $2M has brought on a bit of a splurge, both in comments and some pledging.

Feels like we're crawling to $2m...

 

It feels like the Kickstarter CDN issues really slammed on the brakes for us... even with images fixed, hasn't picked up speed again.

I seem to remember that someone made a comment about George R. R. Martin contacting Reaper a few weeks before the start of the campaign (I think).  I'm hoping that since his dragons are technically wyverns that there can be some cross-over sales...

 

Assuming the Kickstarter servers can keep up.  <_< 

 

EDIT:  Sales is the wrong word, of course.  For now.

Whoa, really? That'd be cool. Any idea where that comment was?

Does anyone know what he contacted them about? Cause if it was something about maybe getting official game of thrones sculpts I would die. I would just fall over and die from sheer happiness.

I can't remember...  I'm pretty sure it was a Reaper Peep who let it slip, but they didn't actually say there'd been a collaboration, just that they'd had a chat.  

 

I do know that GRRM is a miniatures fan, which should be obvious given how many character minis there are for his books.

We're about halfway through the day now. According to Kicktraq, yesterday gain a total of $112,244. Today so far we've gained $44,843, about 40% of yesterday's total.

 

This includes some portion of the bump from the $2M reveals, but we've caught up a bit to where yesterday was.

This has most certainly been a KS filled with things people requested previously :)

 

And Izzy is slaying with her concept art!

I know I'm the minority but I have zero interest in dragons, but it's nice to have a $18 add on to bump the amount up to unlock stuff I want lol.

Not excited about any giants myself.

While i don't care about any demons!

 

Uh oh!  I want all of those things!  

 

I think I will hold out on all the expansions though.  Unless I can find a spare $50 before next July then I will grab Dreadmere.

maybe someone from Reaper can clear it up for us

 

i definitely plan to paint my GoT themed, though not necessarily after one of the show's 3 dragons. In the books about the history of the world there are many more dragon colors that intrigue me more than the show ones
