Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

somewhat. There are 3 miniatures that they are short-stocked on and waiting on a container. They might have enough for who knows how many waves, they haven't informed us how much stock they have

 

so there might be enough for three or so waves, there might be enough for only one, there might not be enough for one at all, we just don't know

The Powers That Be  probably decided it would be more time efficient to just run with the product on hand than to try to design, debug, and then run a computer program to figure out just how far the on hand product would stretch.

indeed, but since Marvin asked a specific question i gave a specific answer to sum up the situation. As in: Yes, some adds are holding up orders. But also, Not exactly, because they might be able to fulfill enough waves until the container comes in.

Ya i was gonna get the wizkids trex, but then remembered i have a much better one from reaper coming :)

That said, i did get the pegasus trex model kit (its even larger) and have dremmeled it to death. going to turn it into the zombie trex (that vomits out legions of zombies) from the artwork in Tomb of Annihilation :)

 

Glad i didnt waste money on the wizkids one, now that we can see the reaper one.

Sanjay

Got my notice today. Then had to pay UPS $5 because I’m not around to collect it. I’d let the friend who is checking on the cat take it in, but my wife saw someone trolling the neighborhood for packages. Would rather pony up the fee than see everything go missing.

Thing is, while the Reaper one is nice (of course I have one coming), base size he's bigger then standard 5e games vs the Wizkids ones. I don't have the Wizkids one (mainly due to run many dino encounters)  but that is one thing. Kinda like Treemoss vs the Wizkids treant & Treemoss is one of my favorite biggies errr minis in this KS!!

Is our resident platypus going to be able to lift that box without assistance?

Hmmm I guess you might be. I'm never in a hurry to lock my pledges in for Reaper KSs, I locked my initial pledge 12-19-17.  know it was after RCon that year as I recall discussing what I wanted to use my initial pledge on, ha ha.

I'm glad that there are a handful of people with bigger boxes than me. Platypus I think is winning. 

 

Gotta say, the t-rex is one that did not impress me. The back doesn't fit well into its socket. It will take a lot of greenstuff. The triceratops however is AMAZING. Seriously, triceratops is amazing and holds up as a solid model versus Dark Sword's resin one. 

 

I airbrush primed my Skeletal Monsters. I am still bad at airbrushing. Good thing I have lots of practice material!

Theresa May is clearly a DM... 

 

The UK now apparently has a "Brexit flextension " until 31 October. If we don't take part in the elections for the thing we are leaving we have to leave the thing on 1 June without amy arrangements for moving things from the UK to the thing. If we ratify the previous deal to leave the thing then we have to leave the thing but then there will be customs arrangements with the thing making it clear that there are no costs for moving things from the UK to the thing. 

 

So more chance for people to get their Kickstarters which may well have been at the forefront of Theresa May's mind.

Not to mention the t-rex from wizkids is actually a zombie t-rex

      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.
