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

If mine arrive by this weekend I'm totally calling in sick on Monday...

You could call in and say you got killed in a barfight the previous night.

 

They get suspicious after the first time though.

So, nothing yet? They did say in the live that they had to walk through and map out the area so they weren’t sure if it would start today. 

 

Today has been busy at work, so I wouldnt  be able to enjoy it anyway.

It really surprises me that they've lost all their customer-facing staff and not replaced them during a crucial period in the company where communication is of the highest priority. I mean, ReaperBryan left around the end of the KS, IIRC, so it's not like there hasn't been time to promote someone or higher someone qualified to provide that outstanding communication Reaper used to have. I know it's not something you can just summon out of thin air, but I don't get the why of it at this point.

 

 

The value of this can not be underestimated.    You would think someone there would be able to take 10 minutes out of their day to post either here or on FB (which would be relayed here) what is going on. It really is a lapse at an important juncture.

I doubt ReaperBryan would have popped in to give us news right now, since he would either be A. setting up, B. packing, or C. trying to figure out why neither of the first two options was being taken care of right now.

 

Random thought--things might be getting packed up but if the last step of the process isn't ready yet, we won't be seeing any movement. It could be that they're working but not everything is set up yet.

 

But in general I agree--Reaper's lost a lot of great communicators and they haven't really begun to fill the void. I do think ReaperLive is their first attempt but it's not really interactive in the same way that the constant forum presence was.

 

I hope they get someone soon. In the meantime...

 

*pokes tracker* C'mon! We want our bones!

I'm consoling myself with a large order from Miniature Market.   They have Microarts bases on clearance, and goodness knows I'm gonna need bases and lots of 'em real soon now.

No more ReaperBryan - he parted ways for other exciting things. And Ladystorm retired. I suspect that they're readjusting to not having some formerly prominent employees right now. Hopefully they'll get into the swing of things and be back on the easy-communication-train soon. I don't think Reaper is trying to bamboozle anyone.

      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.

      ... Would it surprise anybody here to know I want one? 
      If I can't have one, at least I can spread the word. ;p
