Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

Armchair quarterbacking here, but they should have just started shipping in the larger warehouse.  I can see stopping for a day to regroup and change from international to domestic, but a week long silence does leave a bad taste in my mouth regarding shipping waves.  I was ok with splitting the employee load to allow them to still do their normal operations as it made sense, but it just feels to me like they didn't think the interim week through as well as they should have.  I guess it's a learning experience for Reaper and the backers.  In the end, it's just a week but it still is frustrating waiting and knowing nothing is or has been going out in the US yet.

It's been suggested that they didn't have the lease on the new warehouse until April 1. But they needed to at least get the European orders shipped before that, to minimize the chances of Brexit problems. And if they'd waited on Australia and Canada, it would just be that much longer of a wait for U.S. But, it is frustrating that people that are Wave 14 and just a little north of us are getting their stuff before Wave 1 people who locked in the first day the pledge manager was open. I suspect that Canada won't be included in the waves next time, if they're going to ship it this way, again.

My thoughts exactly.

 

Not saying what they should, or should not have done here, just wondering aloud.

I wonder if it would have been more or less economical to have rented the larger space for the extra month and set up shop there from the beginning.

I guess the calculus is between that and the cost to tear down and move mid-fulfillment.

Given the owners' accounting background I trust that this way was planned to be more economical, I just wonder if it turned out that way in practice.

"So, dont make the same mistakes i did.


Assemble the arms of the skeletons of the pillars first. 
Put the 3 main pieces together. 
Add the support for the deck and then the deck.
Then the rails and then the pillars. 
I didnt glue the top because i want it to be removable

 

The rest is pretty self explanatory :P"

That's a lot of pieces... and kind of intimidating.

Now the trick is going to be subtly incorporating a 1" x 1" grid into the paint job for that barge so that I can use it in Pathfinder games...

 

Hmm... I wonder if I could just make a clear plastic overlay sheet for each section, so that the grid can work better on those spines and stuff. It'd also protect the paint job from miniature bases a bit, too...

Maybe use the war gaming method of measuring 1" for every 5 ft? Might be easier.

Im in Toronto and got stuff for myself and another friend, but to save on shipping, we shipped it to the CBI warehouse in buffalo (another friend rents out space there) so canadians can use it as a shipping address in usa for lower costs. But now, im thinking with us splitting the shipping anyways, i'd kinda rather have it a month or so early, instead of, i think it was, $60 or so cheaper...

 

sigh

I got 2. One will go to my Sultana... The other, I am not sure. May try to put both canopies on the one ship.

Blood stains, grease stains, scrapes, dings, mugs, knives, pipes, small birds, mice, footprints, and other tiny details all placed at the grid points.

Has anyone compiled heights of the various big items? Mumlak, argent, gauth, barge (height and length would be awesome), snake, trex, treebeard, etc?

 

I'm trying to plan out where to store them

      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 ...
