Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

Recommended Posts

Reaper seems to have done well by listening to what people want and need rather than what they don't want or need.

Wooo, $2M has brought on a bit of a splurge, both in comments and some pledging.

Feels like we're crawling to $2m...

 

It feels like the Kickstarter CDN issues really slammed on the brakes for us... even with images fixed, hasn't picked up speed again.

I seem to remember that someone made a comment about George R. R. Martin contacting Reaper a few weeks before the start of the campaign (I think).  I'm hoping that since his dragons are technically wyverns that there can be some cross-over sales...

 

Assuming the Kickstarter servers can keep up.  <_< 

 

EDIT:  Sales is the wrong word, of course.  For now.

Whoa, really? That'd be cool. Any idea where that comment was?

Does anyone know what he contacted them about? Cause if it was something about maybe getting official game of thrones sculpts I would die. I would just fall over and die from sheer happiness.

I can't remember...  I'm pretty sure it was a Reaper Peep who let it slip, but they didn't actually say there'd been a collaboration, just that they'd had a chat.  

 

I do know that GRRM is a miniatures fan, which should be obvious given how many character minis there are for his books.

We're about halfway through the day now. According to Kicktraq, yesterday gain a total of $112,244. Today so far we've gained $44,843, about 40% of yesterday's total.

 

This includes some portion of the bump from the $2M reveals, but we've caught up a bit to where yesterday was.

This has most certainly been a KS filled with things people requested previously :)

 

And Izzy is slaying with her concept art!

I know I'm the minority but I have zero interest in dragons, but it's nice to have a $18 add on to bump the amount up to unlock stuff I want lol.

Not excited about any giants myself.

While i don't care about any demons!

 

Uh oh!  I want all of those things!  

 

I think I will hold out on all the expansions though.  Unless I can find a spare $50 before next July then I will grab Dreadmere.

maybe someone from Reaper can clear it up for us

 

i definitely plan to paint my GoT themed, though not necessarily after one of the show's 3 dragons. In the books about the history of the world there are many more dragon colors that intrigue me more than the show ones

      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.

      Gloomhaven is cooperative game of card-driven combat set in a persistent fantasy campaign which will change and grow as you play the game.
      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 ...
