Actually if you turn your phone sideways aka landscape they'll show up. I had my phone that eay when I came across this post :)

 

Huh. Maybe it's an iphone thing; I've got Android and the only way they show up is when I select the "Desktop site" option in my mobile browser.

Email is [email protected] State that it's for Bones 4, and include order number, Kickstarter email address, description of missing/messed up pieces (if possible using the numbers on the KS graphics). Don't include pictures or attachments unless asked to do so (or your email gets deleted by the filter). 

 

Huzzah!

Important additional information.  Include your mailing address.  They CAN look it up with the kickstarter information but ... it will save them exorbitant amounts of time.

I went through all the boxes, everything is accounted for. Mumlak had his weapon broken, so did one of the stone giants (the others came unassembled). One of the crab looking things from fan favorites also has something broken, but that's everything so far.

Add on baggies are all there, but I haven't opened the big ones yet.

 

The wraiths and bonus goblins are currently on my father's counter top drying from being brushed, I hope to practice batch painting on them. But seeing them all lying there, 24 is A LOT.

24?? Have you not seen my WIP thread::):

Hey, I don't know if this is allowed or not, (very sorry if it isn't,) but my mom and I paint our miniatures together and we just got our big box from bones 4 and we post all of our minis on instagram. We'd love it if y'all checked our page out and maybe passed on some constructive criticism. We are @macklinfamilyminiatures

 

Thank you so much if you stop by and once again I am very sorry if we aren't supposed to promote any other websites, or link outside accounts. 

 

EDIT: I didn't notice I could attach an image. Here is an example of my Mom's work. Hope y'all like it!

Things that make me feel old....

 

Grump: Wow! Carmen Miranda!

Megan: Who?

Grump: <_<

 

I had to explain about Carmen Miranda, and that her ghost haunts Space Station 3.

https://youtu.be/D5p8YhhaVlA

 

She is a fun model, and I look forward to painting her... maybe for the fantasy cops game if I ever run it for the grown ups. (A fungal madam, replacing her working girls with fungal copies... not a good choice for the after school game.)

Had to use my +2.75 magnifiers for that one.

Nice! Gonna have to remember this when I get around to building it...

 

As for all the goblins and kobolds from the last couple of kickstarters? Yeah, that's gonna be a lot of batch painting when I finally get around to them!

I think a plate of brownies or similar will encourage top shelf service in the future better than a shotgun.

but if you want service as fast as possible...the shotgun is better.

You'll get yours soon man, I'm calling it right now. Before this week is over, you'll have your notification.

 

Edit: Looks good Skallabjorn, how does it look dryfitted? And are you gonna sand it abit more aswell or do you think the paint will cover what's left?

 

More sanding, definitely. Only the bottom half of the gap is visible dry fitted, but I know it is there, and it would disturb me every time I looked at the model.

Is the form letter reply just a standard thing after you've sent the message with everything the form letter wants or do I need to resubmit my email? :rock:

LOVING Bones Black!

 

Paints easily, you can SEE the detail, not nearly as bendy.

 

BUT I really think it needs to go out unassembled.If the arms hadn't been glued onto the Lost Valley giants then I don't think they would have snapped off in shipping, as is, almost all of the stone giants had broken arms or weapons, and Mammoth Guy had a weapon that was broken in two places. I am amazed his tusks didn't get broken.

 

I know that Reaper is hoping to compete with the WizKids lines, with pre-assembled models, but I will take unassembled over badly assembled or broken.

 

I have to agree, i don't see the point in trying to compete with what is often and inferior product that is way over-priced in most cases.  Saw wiz-kids 8 on the shelf Friday  and they are $15. each for things like a small Dragon or hill giant-  ($5. of that is packaging). You can get a hill Giant in baggy pants a ruck sack, carrying a club from Wizkids, or you can get Golan and Krug both for $3. more.  :rock: I also don't understand the fascination with "no assembly required",  isn't modeling all about putting things together?   Their sculpts overall lack imagination and creativity,  the better ones are straight out of the players handbook, those   models are OK, but some of the sculpts are just terrible. Their just-released Hobgloblins  look like ugly Eleves . -  rant off : )

 

On a side note, anyone know when this last Reaper wave will hit the retail store?

So far, all I've heard on Reaper Live is they will start releasing in June.  Hopefully they will get more specific on what and when as we get further along in the fulfillment cycle.

 

What I don't remember them saying is whether or not retail items would be going out assembled.  Properly packaged, assembled minis wouldn't break as easily, but there's the issue with not being able to paint things that are blocked, and there's the potential for bad assembly.  Bones Black doesn't flex nearly as well as original Bones.  I also don't know how hard they are to pull apart if the assembly is bad or parts are blocked.  We know the Hut is not easy to disassemble, though it can be cut apart.

      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 ...
