Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread


Recommended Posts

@Reaper - any chance you could scale up Argent the silver dragon to like 15-18 inches tall? (and however many more inches long/wide) :)

 

have to ask :)

 

Great campaign.   A lot of great models.

 

I must say i was very surprised with some of the choices.


I really expected a demogorgon due to popularity of stranger things and the resurgence of ppl buying demogorgon minis :P

 

also didn't expect the boat

I'll just add that these last months were pretty competitive for the KS dollar. We had *two* CMON KS, Dwarven Forge KS, and Reaper from late June to early September, plus the usual smaller miniatures KS. That's quite a bit for a little over two months. Myself, I pledged for the Mantic Terrain Crate and Hand of Glory KS, and will be pledging for the ForgePrints AdventureScapes dungeon accessories KS next week. Great time for miniatures, terrible time for the wallet!

4) and yes, the long stretches between goals.

 

I guess number 4 is kind the reverse side of the other 3. If everything went to plan and people were hyped for the final push, the goals wouldnt have been too far apart... but, with the slower final push, having the goals closer might have helped compensate. Having the goals closer, though, is a little bit outside of reapers control in as much as they still need to be far enough apart to cover the production cost - or at least would require less grand / less expensive goals in order to get them close together.

 

At the end of the day it was still a big success, though, and gives them more to think about for their Bones 5 strategy

where do you see you # listed? my payment was rejected since the bank fraud system didn't like it. called, they cleared it, and the re attempt i think went through fine.

 

The KS "View pledge" button next to "Youre a backer" has backer number at the bottom beneath the rewards and your pledge.

Easiest way to find it is to go to the main campaign page and hit the "View Pledge" button. It'll be at the bottom of the popup that appears.

Man everyone heres spending large then there me who has to keep the cost of the minis i get under $205 otherwise I get charged extra for shipping into New Zealand

 

Stupid laws and regulations

 

Jaymezin - probably too late to consider this but you can get around that restriction if you back a few different US waves & get them reshipped to NZ through NZ post.

I've got 3 orders of ~$200 each coming in - wave 1, wave 5, & wave 11.  Experience has shown it's competitive on pricing, faster, and a whole lot less frustrating for me to handle the shipping myself this way than to use the "official" Asia-Pacific shipping from Reaper, and it allows me to stagger the arrival dates so that I don't get hit by duty.

I have sorted things out.

Keeping mind what I already have and what I will probably have painted by then.

Dropped some stuff, added some stuff.

BASES!

Those I need a lot, so great to fill my order.

 

I pledged $500 when I lock in PM my total is $ 499,28..can't get it whole, or it is $500,48.

So I guess I will give reaper 72 cents.

 

I will Get

Paint Set B ( New Paints Woohooo!)

ROC ( I want a Phoenix)

Frost Giant Raiders ( Couldn't resist the Wolf and two beautiful female giants)

Thunderfoot Behemoth ( Project)

Blacktooth Terror X 2 ( I will build a howdah on the second one See Barge)

Barge X 2 ( one will be painted whole, second will be cut up, use the tent part for a howdah, the rest will become a shipwreck or two)

The rest is filled out with large round and oval bases and flight stands.

In terms of what I'm getting - oh, ninnyhammers, that's going to be interesting given that I've spread everything over 3 separate accounts : )

 

Wave 1

  • Core Set
  • Chronoscope Expansion
  • Wraiths Option
  • Fantasy Scenics Option

Total:  $190, $10 available for other options if I decide to not use it on shipping.  All of these are hard locks.

 

Wave 5

  • Dreadmere Expansion
  • High Rollers Option
  • Paint Set A Option
  • Paint Set B Option
  • Trolls Option
  • Rocky Option
  • Skeletal Monsters Option
  • Living Statue Amazon Option
  • Living Statue Spartan Option
  • Tree of Despair Option
  • Baba Yaga's Hut Option
  • Nyarlathotep Option

Total:  $196, $4 available for other options if I decide not to use it on shipping.  All in italics are soft locks that will probably go out for other stuff where I see more value like the Stygian Canoe Option, but I'm going to wait for a bit and mull that over.  This is definitely the shipment I'm most flexible on and I can easily see myself grabbing stuff that's more compelling or arguably useful like the modern scenics option or the "Stones" tiles over some of this.

 

Wave 11

  • Darkreach Expansion
  • Lost Valley Expansion
  • Fan Favorites Expansion
  • Frost Giant Raiders Option
  • Thunderfoot Behemoth Option
  • Blacktooth Terror Option

Total: $200, right on the upper limit of the budget.  The Frost Giant Raiders are likely to stay in, but if I need to free up $15 somewhere they're the ones to go from here.

 

Total budget:  $600 excluding shipping.  I'm under it by $14 at the moment, rock and roll.

      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
