Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

According to Reaper live, they're 60% finished with shipping from the UK hub, and the 2nd container will be arriving tomorrow (so today I guess?) for them to continue shipping. So at least they're getting through those boxes quickly once they reach the hub.

 

 

No notification here yet, so I guess my stuff is in the second container.

Wave 1 and locking in fast means nothing for EU.

Nevermind, I hope I will get my stuff soon.

They also mentioned in the Reaper Live that they will NOT be putting extra core/expansions up on the site until AU at least begins shipping and that June was currently planned as the first month of Bones 4 releases.  I know some of our overseas friends were worried about these.

 

Thanks for mentioning this.

Apparantly I got a shipping notification, NL here. Says tuesday, though I won't be around much that week.

The cobra is not  alone in gate marks.  Underside of Argent's wings has ejector marks.  Just scrape away apply a little bit of putty, sand if you can.  Done.

Mine arrived today.  It was a more modest order than most people here have been getting.  I have just finished inventory and everything appears present and correct.

 

The only damage I found was in a couple of places on the eaves of Baba Yaga's Hut.  These are easily repaired, but Reaper might want to give some thought to the way it packages its Bones Black products in future, considering their more brittle nature.  More irksome was the sloppy assembly that left a gap between the rear turret of the hut and the main building.  That will take a fair bit of green stuff work.

 

Overall, though, I'm very pleased with what I got.

Just in case anyone's tracking this:  I got a wave 1 order delivered to New Zealand via a reshipper on Tuesday.  Have any of the Australasian direct orders landed yet?

The boat does not get to AU till the 17th. So said Reaper on the Livestream last night. 

 

Why did the reshipper take so long. Did you have any of the three?

Try being a US Wave 1 backer & getting your order around the same time the UK/EU boat got across the ocean. Of course I had the trifecta of doom, but it was annoying.

How much was shipping? Might try this for future unannounced projects (tm).

We started going through my order yesterday. Core set is inventoried and glued, afterwards we just looked at some of the other stuff, mostly the expansion sets.

Mumlak's weapon is broken, but that's the only problem so far. Even the chicken shag stands well out of the box.

Will make sure everything is here today.

I was fairly slack getting it reshipped:  I probably could have had it a week or two earlier.  I assume there's three orders in particular that delayed people?  I haven't been tracking this the way I normally do : )

I split it into 3 separate $200 NZ orders for boring tax reasons:  this was my first one from Wave 1.  Looks like they're averaging out between $50-$75 NZ for reshipping, depending on package size & weight, with a transit time from the reshipper of about a week.

I did this for Bones 2 & 3 as well.  Apart from anything else I get so much less worked up about it if I'm controlling the shipping myself, and it's worth any additional cost just for that level of control for me.

Oh, and it's using the NZ Post YouShop service for the reshipping.  I looked at other options but they cost the same if not more so I went with the easiest option.

      Andowyn Thrushmoor!
      It's been awhile since I've painted a plain ol' character miniature. I spent the better part of today working on her and I’m overall pleased with how she came out. I really want to double my skill level by the time Bones V is delivered and I’m proud of my progress! Slowly but surely figuring out how to do faces, this one looks pretty okay, though her right eye is funky.
       
      Since this is my first form post, the picture is her next to my first miniature! It's about four years old and I keep it around the rest of my collection in a place of honor

      If anybody here loves cavern terrain and missed DF's first cavern KS KS2, this spring/summer around June DF will have KS6. The theme of KS6 will be Return to the Caverns and should be great fun for those who took part in KS2 or those who are new to DF.

      DF had this to say and showed the below teaser pics

      We're doing for Caverns what Dungeon of Doom did for Dungeons. A whole new batch of fun pieces to enhance your existing collection, but also completely stand-alone.

      Some of the key features:
      New Core Shapes (diagonal wall, convex curves, 1" pieces, etc)
      Passages
      Elevation (with stuff that's impossible on graph paper...)
      Negative Space pieces (and new Terrain Trays)
      Flashy Pieces (Magnets & LEDs)
      Large pieces (4x4 and larger)

      This looks like a very interesting board game with lots of new, fresh ideas and cool artwork (and nice minis - there is even a pledge level for just the minis: around 15 of them for $20 plus shipping):
       
      About this project
       

      It's a harsh but lucrative business being a mercenary out on the edge of civilization. You must explore the harsh wilderness and engage in deep tactical combat, where the decisions you make have an impact not only on your own character, but also the world around you.

      There is always more to unlock and explore in the world of Gloomhaven.

      If you missed the first Gloomhaven Kickstarter (and retail sold out quickly) here is your chance. I backed that game the first time around and could not be happier with the results. Warning ... that box is heavy ...
