Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

Recommended Posts

Since Kickstarter is an Amazon property, I rather suspect that it's already running on the Amazon Web Services servers.

 

Doesn't mean that a separate part of the service might not work better for a smaller job, but it does call into question at least some of the underlying assumptions, I think.

 

I don't think Kickstarter is an Amazon property. Amazon does have some some kind of arrangement to sell Kickstarted products (although I'm not familiar with the details). KS is using a 3rd party image hosting service (imgix) that isn't Amazon either, although KS and/or Imgix might be using AWS and Amazon's CDN and DNS under the hood.

With all the expansions lined up in a row it seems like each expansion is larger than the last. It makes one wonder if chronoscape will get a boost after the others are done. (Its the only one where they said eh...maybe instead of no for a future goal)

 

Reaper has stated that the Chronoscope expansion will have no further additions to it.

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 quoted it in one of my KS summaries, I believe. It will take me a couple of minutes to dig it out. 

 

Huzzah!

Is anybody else seeing pledge amounts rise, then fall back down a notch over and over today? I can't tell whether it's real or just a server quirk kind of thing.

I've seen some, as well as some backers dropping out. I don't know if it is a Kickstarter caching issue or people realizing issues with real life.

I'm not too interested in the Dice but those are painted beautifully!  That picture might be able to change a few people's minds.

 

Mind is not needing to be changed since I had these down for purchase when they were first introduced.  The paint job does not do much for me either because I will never be able to replicate it.  I just want them and to try and give them a fun paint job...or let the daughter paint some and we give them as gifts.

Those reunions must be fun to attend..

 

As for the dropping / raising pledges. I think it will work out well in the end.

Let's face it, we've hit 2 million already!

I know we all want more, I know I do, but this is a huge success!!!

Agreed. It'll work out in the end. I definitely want more minis too though.

 

Best if people that have Real LifeTM crap come up don't overextend themselves.

Yep! Currently have something like 1100 unpainted minis ::o:

 

I really shouldn't buy any more

 

But, I've painted (along with the kids) something like 20 minis since Saturday! That lets me buy more, right? Right?!?!?!

Sure!

You'll need to replace the ones you painted.

Buy a few extra just in case.

It's what I do..

Bryan said one time there was a backer playing games with his pledge amount and he has done it before.  This is probably what it is.  Someone's warped idea of fun.

      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 ...
