Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread


Recommended Posts

We know there were 16,200 Kickstarter backers.  We also know there were additional backers who joined after the Kickstarter closed.  Seemingly at least 500, probably more than 1000 unless you want to claim they all have double-digit orders too.  Yet, when the tracker started, there seem to have been fewer than 23,000 orders at the start.  That does not add up to a substantial number of people with 10+ orders.  Call it "assumption" or "speculation" all you want, but I think it's pretty clear that your estimate of only 500-600 backers on hold is wildly off...

 

I have a large order that I locked in just once with no additions.  My educated guess is that the majority of people decided what they wanted, locked it in, and never looked back.

 

One. Not my estimate; I'm just telling you what I did, as a more-or-less experienced Bones Kickstarter backer. I am one of clearly many, many backers, and my solution to too much Bones, not enough money is provably not the only one. 

 

Two. you're being pretty rude. Please don't.

I’m in wave 4 with all three lod’s and have 4 orders. One large and three small. So far I’m impressed with how fast they have moved on everything. 

Just patiently waiting for the container to arrive. Getting anxious for them to arrive at my house. Seen orders around my city but none in my city. Of course I can’t watch it all the time. Work gets in the way of that. 

Hopefully everyone will have a good day.

Long time lurker, first time poster.  Wave 6 with all three of the LoD - I have 5 orders.  With the pledge manager staying open for a year, we initially pledged for what stood out the most as far as what we liked/wanted(Chicken hut pulled us in).  After the KS ended, but before the PM opened, there were several other items that caught our eye. Our biggest order was placed on the day the PM opened, then we successively added orders over that year as we had more gaming money to do so -and ended up getting one of almost everything.  I wish now I had gotten more than one of some things.

 

It sounds like there was more of this happening than not, especially for those that tossed our hats in during the KS.    Maybe most of the 1 order folks are wave 14?  

 

Thanks to all for the photos and info on all the bones - positive as well as things to watch for!  I am living vicariously through you until container arrival and shipment.  :). 

 

And Reaper - keep up the good work!!

So with just over 6K orders left, lets say we stop wave 14 at around 5.5K, and an average of 10 orders per pledger, we have around 550 pledgers waiting on the trio of doom??

 

I remember being really low on beer and high on bad math, when I posted a guess with numbers as high as 13 orders a backer. @Doug Sundseth  and others pointed out the faults in my logic, one of the biggest, being off by a factor of ten on the number of backers. His estimate of about 1.3 orders per backer is far more accurate, even with all the known unknowns. 

 

The backers who post here, or are in earlier waves, tend to have more orders per backer.

 

 

Glad to hear that people with the raiders are still getting their orders. I'm still happy with getting chicken hut, and tree. Still wish I would have gotten 2 trees like I had almost talked myself into.

 

(For the records, I'm wave 1, no shipping notice.) :)

My Bones arrived during my lunch break. My brief inspection showed a few minor problems, but much more gloriousness. The biggest surprise for me was that the Dreadmere leeches might be a new favorite for me from that set. They look grotesque, and I love 'em.

Wave 3 with a hut here which is kinda funny because I only bought the hut to use as a terrain piece, minus the legs. Now that the legs aren't removable it'll just take a little work to stick with my original plan. 

 

Got a little antsy waiting for my order because I was starting a box in the current box of goodwill circuit and knew I have some minis coming that I have no desire to keep. With that shipped out already though, I'm content to wait now.

I ordered what I wanted but wish I could have doubled some of it. But now I will have to wait for retail. I did order at least one of everything. Didn’t do the tiles, I just paint not game, but kind of wish I ordered them to. Oh well first time kickstarter. Will get in on the next one to I hope.

I just confirmed with my local post office that packages shipped via 'Parcel Select' are, ironically, shipped up on the barge. In a container. So, assuming my box got on Wednesdays barge (likely I think, it got to Seattle on Friday) it should be here by Saturday and in my hands by Monday or Tuesday. Not sure how long it takes for it to get unloaded and sorted by USPS.

I'm kinda confused about what was rude about anything @Dontmindme said. Everybody's making assumptions and speculating based on their own experiences, no need for anyone to get their feathers ruffled over statements that can't be proved nor disproved. The only thing we know for certain is that some number of backers who made some number of orders will be waiting for the rest of their items to arrive in the final container and if people want to make wild speculations over that, well, as long as they're clearly not stating it as known fact, eh, have fun with your guesses I suppose. ::):

Now that pictures are being shared, what are some things that you regret not getting? 

 

For me it's the snake, a duplicate set of the rulers of hell, the skeletal monsters, Mossbeard, and blacksting

So far, no regrets that I didn't get something. There were a few things that I liked in, say, the Fan Favorites set, but nothing that I wanted to spend $50 for the rest of the set for. I think I did alright with this set, overall.

The wraiths. I don't find them particularly interesting, but I'd have use for them on the table now. 

 

A second set of Rockys. But I suppose one will do for now, and they'll be at retail eventually. 

 

Second "Monsters" from the Core. They're really good models, and I'd have liked to give one to Mom or Sir Cyr. But these will likely see tabletop.

      I know there are a few folks that do Bolt Action and similar 28mm wargaming (@buglips), so I thought I'd bounce this out there.

      Story
      Railroads are an important means to transport troops, equipment, ammunition and all other kinds of supply to the front. Especially in a country as vast as the Soviet Union with it's endless steppes, only few reliable roads and no major rivers running in the direction of the German advance during Operation Barbarossa in World War II. 
      With this set of detailed buildings and rolling stock in 1/56 scale for 28mm figures you get the opportunity to recreate the crucial fighting around the Soviet railroad system.
      The kits focus on the major pieces of rolling stock available to the Soviet defenders: box cars, gondola cars and flat cars. And the mighty ALCo RSD-1 Diesel Engine which was made available under the US Lend-Lease Act.
      Also included is a typical rural train station with optional additional platforms for all who want to depict a Soviet - or captured German - supply depot, where heavy equipment like tanks and guns are being unloaded.
      And for all of you looking for an armored train - don't worry! We have you covered.
        Talking about railroad tracks:
      We did not see the need to reinvent the wheel, so all kits are designed to be used with
      4Ground Railroad Tracks (available as add-ons to the Kickstarter) or O Gauge Model Railroad Tracks The kits include optional parts enabling you to choose your favorite system while assembling. Going this route has allowed us to concentrate on designing and producing the rolling stock only, which has the advantage of an earlier fulfillment date for the Kickstarter.
      All models are highly detailed on the outside and inside. The interiors are easily accessible, as roofs are removable. In addition, all doors are moveable, which means you can open or close them during gameplay.

      A Viking Girl sculpted by Bobby Jackson. She was a lot of fun to paint since she had a lot of canvas for freehand work. She is also my first serious effort at NMM, so that's a well I plan to return to.
       
      I came to paint her when I asked my friends which model needed to get some love next. I presented a wizard, a ranger, and an armored lady fighter. One chimes in that she'd like to see the fighter (she being a practitioner of HEMA). Her boyfriend mentions something about boob armor. I said, no, she's got pretty normal armor. You want to see something egregious? THIS is egregious. My HEMA friend immediately says, "I'd like to change my vote." So here we are.
       
      Here's the WIP thread for her. Here's my next piece.

      This has sod all to do with miniatures, but I would be surprised if there were not people who might want one of these pins, for literally any reason at all.
      I'll let the campaign speak for itself, as I usually do; it is pins. There are, as the title implies, representations for most of the common faiths, in a literal rainbow of ... well, Pride rainbows.

      ... Would it surprise anybody here to know I want one? 
      If I can't have one, at least I can spread the word. ;p
