Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

**** Stands at the docks watching the sea, when will they arrive?****

Meanwhile, at another port hundreds of miles away, a ship is tied off at the keeside and massive cranes start lifting big steel boxes full of goods onto waiting trucks.

While Glitterwolf is standing there looking out to sea a laden truck roars by giving a massive blast on its airhorn on the way to the local Distribution Center where smaller lorries await the precious cargo to be trans-shipped to the Postal Authorities for final delivery.

Glitterwolf, still standing at the waters edge, is unaware that a brown cardboard box with red lettering has been deposited on his doorstep.

Finally, exhausted and hungry from his vigil, the discouraged Glittery One slinks home, only to find joy waiting for his return.

Leaping and capering in his extacy the now overjoyed wolf triumphantly carries his box [of 20] filled with miniature examples of the sculptors craft inside.

Too much wish-wash about those AU and US Bones, the most important ones have already left and we need updates!

 

I think I remember them talking about sending the camera guy from Reaper Live to the warehouse to film a bit in the last Reaper Live. Maybe we'll see additional footage tonight. Can't really imagine them having anything more interesting than talking about fulfillment some more.

Unless they announce the release date for Reapercon Tickets.

So they have now rolled back to wave 1, if that's accurate, this is what happened JUST before they finished UK hub, so another good indicator they MAY be on to the next hub. I love the tracker.

 

I like the tracker, but can't help but think that the waves listing on it on the non-US sections is largely irrelevant. And if Canada ships before US, I feel a bit guilty for being in "wave 1". Granted, I placed the order while in the US, but still. Someone else could have been in the first US round in my spot.

You know, this MAY explain why we had wave 1,10,11 and 12 (14 was verified by Reaper as the late backers) orders at the END of the hubs, this may have been exception orders such as address changes or (as in your case) Country changes. Just an assumption as there were not that many orders in those waves.

I wouldn't.  It would have affected ONE person (whomever got your spot), and either way, you would have been ahead of them anyway.  

Had you not moved, you would have retained that Wave 1 spot, and they wouldn't have it.    And since you moved, even though your stuff will technically ship sooner, chances are you'll still get your stuff AFTER whomever would have been lucky enough to grab your empty spot anyway.

Still took the thrill from whoever had Wave 2 #1 ;) 

And yes, due to border crossings to the great north, I'll likely still be waiting a bit longer than the US.

      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.

      "You take your game seriously. Now it's time for a serious screen.
      In October of 2018, Dog Might released the first fully sculpted GM Screen, the Valhalla Screen. Since then, we have released over 30 more designs, including officially licensed screens for: Pathfinder, Call of Cthulhu, and Vampire: The Masquerade. We have also designed screens for you favorite shows, such as Relics and Rarities and the Critical Role stream of Undeadwood. Over the last year and a half, our Valhalla Screens have proven to be our most sought after product. "
       
      ... Would it surprise anybody here to know I want one? 
      If I can't have one, at least I can spread the word. ;p
