Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

You should have picked a few of the big dragons(The Dance, at the very least) in the PM. 

The CORE box is stuffed, yes, and probably is the most 'minis for the money', but that assumes you want/need all those minis. 

But everyone loves dragons...   ;-)

And we KNOW that they'll at least double in price(even compared to a late backer's PM price) when they hit retail. 

The Core minis will be released as either singles or as small sets eventually, so it's possible to pick only those you want later on. 

 

I wasn't certain myself, and it took a lot of studying of the pictures and presentations in the KS updates to decide to add the Core box. 

 

Post offices...   

The local post office used to be open until 5pm, but my bus used to arrive at 4:50pm if I was lucky, so it was a mad dash to get there.  

But that one was closed down a few years ago, and we now have 'post in store'. That is, a counter inside a grocery store, and the store employees does all the work, handing out and accepting packages. 

And that store is open from 7am to 10pm on weekdays...   

 

 

Money was tight at the time, so we wound up passing on various things... And the renders for most of the dragons at the time weren't enticing enough.

And I looked again and it's Calgary again. Are there any other cities in western Canada?

 

:huh:

There's Dead Rear, I mean Red Deer Alberta.... Which even to this day, that city is unknown to many people and is simply referred to as "Gasoline Alley", aka the "I'm driving from Edmonton to Calgary and need somewhere to pee, refuel and stretch my legs.  Probably doesn't help this perception as Highway 2 (aka Queen Elizabeth II highway, or the QE2) goes AROUND Red Deer. 

 

There's also For McMurray, but they're still rebuilding after that giant forest fire... Lethbridge, Taber (supposedly known for their corn, locals are all "its corn, just corn"), Vauxhall, Morinville, St. Albert.... Uhm, Medicine Hat, Cold Lake...  Can't forget Cochrane (there's a rally race there every year!), or Jasper, or Banff... 

 

BC has, uhm, uh... Kamloops, Kelowna, Revelstoke... Uhhh..  Not obvious which road we took to get to Vancouver Island, is it? :p  then on the island there's Comox/Courtenay, Nanaimo, and... I dunno, memory isn't pulling up much more.  There are a LOT of trees in British Columbia, and a lot of flat, boring ground with cows (or if lucky, horses!) in Alberta.

Sure, you say that. But every time I've looked for the past two days, the shipments have been going to Calgary.

 

I think those other "cities" are just a hoax played by the Canadians. (Or perhaps a shared hallucination; I understand that psychoactive substances are pretty easy to get in America's Hat.)

Due to my love for the Portland Winterhawks jr hockey team, I've heard of almost all of those cities you listed. ^_^

 

Also back when I was wee lad, my grandmother, aunt & cousin took a trip into Canada & to Kamloops. We drove said highway of course, even got a bumper sticker saying we did!! :lol:

Would I lie? :devil: Seriously though, I would have tagged you but not everyone likes their location broadcast, so I didn't.

 

And I know where you live too ::P:, though admittedly your farm is probably shootier than my place. :ph34r:

 

Even if they know the town they might still have trouble finding me. The house in town isn't heavily armed even though I live next door to the small town version of a crack house. Bleep! Just gave away my location. All the heavy weapons are at the farm 20 miles away. My anti virus program constantly tells me that my location is traceable and people know I live in a town 100 km from here. I figure that's good enough deception without paying for the upgrade to hide it. Of course that town has millionaires, casinos giving away money and hot foreign woman all wanting my attention. Got to love internet ads. :huh:

Well depending on what you classify as a city I'd go with Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton and Winnipeg. Regina and Saskatoon are much smaller than those but nice and there's lots of even smaller ones. Don't know about the others but Calgary has a large, active gaming community and the largest game store in Canada. It's about 700 km from me and I've gone there for conventions a few times and try to hit The Sentry Box when I'm there. Doesn't surprise me that there'd be a disproportionate number of Bones customers in Calgary.

Remembering that there was between 1000 and 2000 Canadian backers, I believed that Friday's lower numbers meant that Reaper was done with the Canadian orders. Which meant that the delivery truck could also leave on Friday.

 

If not, then I'll blame Calgary, 'cuz that's the city I'm seeing (and being from Quebec, I think I have to be diametrically opposed to it by law). If it was *my* city, then I'd laugh maniacally.

It was posted somewhere that there were around 1800 Canadian orders so I don't think they are done.  

I could be wrong though... I was wrong once back in '96 so its not unheard of

'96?

 

1800, 

 

But in 1996, I was 7 years old, so probably right about everything until old age fell upon my brain

      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.
