Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread


Recommended Posts

Hahahaha! I added all three of those items in the last days of the pledge manager being open! That's ok though. I'm trying to speed paint through as many of the human sized minis from the last couple of bones kickstarters as I can right now in an effort to clear up some shelf space for the imminent arrival (finished up 8 so far in the last 11 days or so). So a few extra days works just fine. That being said, I'm also backer #44. So I may still see my stuff mid April. Pretty exciting!

IMO Reaper has always had a communication/PR problem due to the way that they choose to structure the dissemination of information. ie. We can't post an update because it's not update day. We can't gi

I'm always slightly annoyed at people complaining about EU being shipped first.

 

Where are people complaining about it?  I haven't seen that much.  Frankly, I think it is great that they are packing and sending the EU, AU, and Asian orders first; gives all their customers a shot at getting their stuff at roughly similar times.  I remember one of the past bones where the EU was last and you all had to sit and watch our unboxing videos for months before your stuff got to you.  That was harsh.  Can't people just have some empathy for each other?

 

I also really like that Reaper is not totally shutting down operations this time like last time.  That really hit their distribution channels; I know of at least one store that reduced the Reaper shelf space and added WizKids space during that time.  They have not since restored the Reaper section to it's former size.

 

I'm Wave 1 but have none of the Trio of Doom, so you guys can have them.  I'm life giving that way. ::D:

I'm happy we have a solid date to look forward to now, as much as I'd have liked it to be a bit earlier.. 

 

I'm hoping with everyone else they have enough to fill wave 1 orders... I ordered all 3 from the the list of doom (and 2x the frost giants).

Does anyone remember when the order manager opened? I locked in my first order on 9/10/17 (and was in Wave 1), which I'm hoping was early enough that I can get my chicken hut before they run out.

 

I think it opened that day. I believe i locked in my order an hour or two after it opened and mine is also 9/10/17, Order #65367

I'm wave 14.. Hopefully by then they will have gotten the frost giants in, and will be back on schedule. 

 

Really frustrating that I should have been part of wave 2, but my card was full and I got dropped. But it is what it is. Not Reaper's fault. Just excited to get my minis!

KS comments, cause some backers are entitled and pissy they didn't get their stuff a year ago.

#63941 also on 9/10 at 10:09pm eastern.

 

Thank you. My first order number is 62577, so I should be fairly early, I think.

 

FWIW, I think Bryan had the right idea about people getting antsy. You want your customers to be anxious to get their stuff as soon as possible; that means that they care about your product. It's when your customers say, "Ah, whatever" that you need to start to worry.

 

Oh, and those big checks that people wrote pretty much mean that they are justifiably "entitled". That doesn't excuse discourtesy, of course.

Hmmm. It looks like we confirmed our first order in the pledge manager #62595 on Sunday, September 10th 2017 at 11:57 PM ET. Looks like that's a few minutes later than some of the other orders that were posted, but with an earlier order number. Interesting!

 

We got the (un)holy trinity of delay, but we're wave 1. I'm not worried about when we're getting our Bones, either. I am happy that the EU stuff went first, though--there's no reason to make people pay twice if they don't have to.

Yeah I closed mine on Sept 11 and my first order number is #59419.  Very strange!

I am backer 427.  Though I am not sure that has any significance.  

I am hoping I'll at least be in the first 50% of wave 1.

I'm always slightly annoyed at people complaining about EU being shipped first. There was/is a real concern about not making the Brexit deadline and having to pay import taxes twice (one time we already payed through the pledgemanager, the other time would be with a hard Brexit for crossing the border UK to EU) and I'm happy they seem to get the stuff out before that.

Also, I backed in the first few minutes of the KS and would easily have been wave 1 if all the orders were sorted in waves, so why do some US wave 1 backers think we should wait until most orders are sorted? o.O

 

 

 

 

 

Personally I think there is a conspiracy between Reaper and the EU backers to get their stuff pulled first.  I mean the first Brexit vote was around 3 years ago and this KS was started almost 2 years ago and they had a delay so that it all culminated within days of each other.  I think Brexit is just a ruse to get EU backers their stuff first.  FOLLOW THE SIGNS PEOPLE!!

I closed my first order on 9/10 early in the day with order number 59012. In the evening I got my friend's add on's and got order number 72790. I added on 4 more times with progressively higher order numbers.

      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.

      If I can't have one, at least I can spread the word. ;p
