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. 

Bamboozle is such a great word. 

 

Also really need that undead ogre in plate armor...I have a mighty need...

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 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.

Right. That's why I was saying they've got the void--between ReaperBryan leaving for Secret Weapon and Ladystorm retiring, that's two of their main community outreach folks. But even if Bryan were still hanging out in Dallas, I'm not sure he would have let us know as of this very moment what was going on.

While we wait here is a little about everyone's favorite new Canadian town of Red Deer:

 

Wait, you mean it's more than just the place between Edmonton and Calgary?  ::P:

 

I'm going to try and distract myself with fun stuff today.  I know I was not anywhere near first to lock in a Wave 1 pledge, so I won't be hearing anything before tomorrow anyway.

Is someone keeping track of all the cities/towns listed on the tracker somewhere? I probably wont be able to watch closely, but if theres a list compiling I'd definitely check in on that periodically (once the tracker starts moving again)

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

 

 

Just putting it out there, I'm looking for work.....I mean, sure I'm in the wrong country, and sure my field is unrelated to public relations, and yeah I'm not known for being the most diplomatic person, but I DO spend a ton of time on the forums!  :poke:

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.

 

That said, I'm not a business, so I can't do more than speculate. Hopefully, Reaper will be back on its game when it gets to rolling out Bones 5, and hopefully I'll get my shipment confirmation sooner rather than later. I won't have a day off from work until Easter Sunday, though, so it's not like I'll get to just play with them for hours on my day off before then, one way or another...

Its hard to replace bryan...

Bones V - A Game of Bones?

 

There is a Song of Ice & Fire RPG Game of Thrones Edition - still around, and still in print. ::):

 

I have the PDF from a long time ago, I think from the previous edition of the game.

Not a bad idea, but I am hoping for Bones F5: Refreshing

Maybe they decided to do regular business stuff in the morning and the packing in the afternoon?  I doubt it but I am going to hope that is what is going on.  If they don't start right after lunch I am guessing that will mean a no-go for today and we will have to hope for tomorrow.

While we wait here is a little about everyone's favorite new Canadian town of Red Deer:

Red Deer is a city in Central Alberta, Canada. It is located near the midpoint of the Calgary–Edmonton Corridor and is surrounded by Red Deer County. It is Alberta's third-most-populous city – after Calgary and Edmonton. The city is located in aspen parkland, a region of rolling hills that is home to oil, grain, and cattle production. It is a centre for oil and agriculture distribution, and the surrounding region is a major centre for petrochemical production. Red Deer had a population of 100,418 as of the Canada 2016 census making Red Deer Alberta's third city to surpass 100,000 people.[3]

 

But the big question is has anyone in Red Deer gotten their Bones yet? I mean you're about as close to Calgary as you can get.

The closer something is, the more impatient we become. *stares at UPS tracker*

 

Checked mine. It says that it has left Calgary and should be delivered tomorrow by end of the day. We'll see. UPS has a history of lying about delivery service here. I'm expecting it by Friday with Canadapost after UPS says they can't deliver. I'll be at home most of the day tomorrow waiting for the delivery. Didn't plan it that way, just worked out that I have business here.

From last Thursday’s Reaper Live I understood that they had completed the walk-through to optimize the work path but still hadn’t actually set everything up yet.  I could be wrong though. That happens way more often than I am comfortable with sometimes.

Right now it states that it arrived in Regina at 1 in the morning, and that delivery is scheduled by the end of today. Hasn't moved since then. My worry is that it won't be delivered directly by UPS, but by one of the local couriers that does contracts for them. That particular one has a driver that quietly goes up to the door and sticks a "Sorry we missed you, now you have to go pick up your package the next day on your own time and expense" sticker. He never knocks, never gives service. Even last time when he was forced to come back to deliver the package that he didn't bother trying to do, I caught him coming up to the door and reaching to write another note without even bothering to knock. Not happy with him at all.

      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
