Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

Recommended Posts

I would be interested to know how big the new stone giants are.  Have they been scaled up as Reaper has done with other giants, or are they compatible in size with the earlier stone giant (77336)?

From Ron in the update comments

 

" I wouldn't categorize the Stone Giants as dinky. They're about 90mm tall, give or take a mm or 2. It's difficult to perfectly scale concept art, digital sculpts, and actual in-hand models together but we do the best we can to accurately portray the sizes."

Is there a reason reaper scaled up their giants? And is it really noticeable between the old sculpts and the new? My goal is to collect all the reaper giants someday and I'm wondering if I should just skip the older ones if they're gonna be a lot smaller.

@Glitterwolf - cause any real discussion is being swallowed in the is comments, why do you see there is a chance that you will have to pay taxes twice?

I don't know about every single sculpt, but the original Bones fire giants (and frost giants too?) are smaller than the older metal giants, and smaller than the most recent versions put out in Bones 3 and 4.

 

If you're looking for the Bones 3 versions you might occasionally find some on eBay. I don't think they've hit retail yet. 

 

In terms of why it matters, it's nice to have giants that are actually giant. The original bones giants aren't much taller than a lot of Reaper's ogres.

Are the Jadefires an all-female Orc tribe? :blink::wub: 

 

Reaper themselves stated in the update, that collecting the VAT was new information to them. There are a few problems with this, one being that some backers are from inside Europe but outside the EU (Norway, Switzerland, ...) who have to pay VAT in their country again when getting a package through the UK. Apparently you can mark packages as destined to end up outside the EU and don't pay VAT when importing into the UK or something similar, but the way it is right now those backers pay VAT twice.

Same problem would potentially occur in case of a "hard Brexit" with all the other EU backers.

 

And ofc, it's kind of killing the 48-hours hype when you log in to your pledge manager and see that you blew your budget without adding anything.

 

What you are saying is that for Norway for example, if Reaper had collected the vat, and shipped from the U.K., there is no way to tell Norway, "ok here's your vat, it's been paid, you don't have to collect it from this person."? If there wasn't a way for Reaper to forward the vat on to Norway, and the person had to pay the vat, I would expect there to be a refund from somewhere (like Reaper). So I still don't get how you would have A doubled vat (that wouldn't in some way be refunded.)

Really glad to see another female giant, sad she is in a $50 expansion. Hope she hits retail quickly sometime in 2019 :D

Folks had been asking for a 360 of the fungal queen.  This is the best we can do being currently displaced. 

 

 

 

 

Wow, I really liked the video!  Thanks for sharing it.  Something about the improvised aspect of it, and getting to hear the sculptor take such pride in her work, made the figures all the more appealing.  Makes me wish Reaper would have more sculptors show off their own work...

I do wish a few more reveals were up at this point. Lost Valley and the townsfolk are looking great.

      As I backed Brayan's previous KS but never got my files (I got a email in regards to this KS) but a quick email response & I had my file that I backed + a bonus file. Love the look on the minis. The goblins can be new PC gobs for ReaperCon We Be Goblins. Love the Oriental dragon as well.
