Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread


Recommended Posts

I sometimes think that Reaper misunderstands how more information would affect their audience. Certainly there would be people who would use any comment as an excuse to bash Reaper. But since those same people will bash Reaper for lack of comment as well (see every Kickstarter project comments ever), I don't necessarily see that as a problem.

 

I really do think that there are more people who would be understanding about things with real explanations. I was wrong once before though. ::D:

 

But only once? :poke:

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 don't really need anything but the wait is killing me...

 

I would like to have the Ape Men, the Nagendra and the dinosaurs though in the next 2 weeks as my Council of Wyrms group is going to a "lost city".

An unmarried man, he must be... :lol:

 

On the Thursday Reaperlive, didn't Ed also promise an actual KS update for Friday the 5th??

We got an update on Friday, but it came through in the evening.

His wife is a nice lady. Perhaps he was forgiven. 

 

Regarding ReaperLive: dunno. Those videos are far too long and disorganized for me usually so I rarely watch them.

Y'all quoted me before I had a chance to delete it. I was bored by the update on Friday so I disregarded it, and confirmed there was one after I'd written my sentence :lol:

After the 25th Anniversary, I don't think I count any more.

 

ETA: "Count" has multiple meanings. :poke:

All I can think of is Count Chocula :lol:

Checked my tracking just now and UPS says it'll be delivered tomorrow instead of today. Which is pretty much matched what I figured with it showing up in the mail on Friday instead of whatever UPS promises at the time. Also realised that I only gave Reaper my PO box and not a house address so UPS isn't even trying for a house delivery. Even though this is exactly what I expected it feels a bit sad KNOWING it won't be today.

All I can say is that if Reaper doesn't start shipping soon that my boss is going to notice I am not getting anything done but I will let him know the situation and that it is Reaper's fault.  I hope they are prepared for a strongly worded email from a mid level accounting manager from a nonspecific branch of the Colorado State government!

I don't feel entitled to daily progress updates. I have every confidence things will get delivered. 

 

I do think Reaper could learn a lot from this in terms of managing expectations. Once they threw the April 8th date out there, people had that set in their minds. That's not necessarily fair to Reaper (they did say it could take longer) but that's human psychology. 

 

At that point you've backed yourself into a corner of needing to explain yourself if you miss that date. Pure speculation on my part, but I think Ed and Ron feel the pressure to reassure people on the stream and try to give the rosiest picture they can. 

 

A more conservative schedule (at least publicly) and/or a quick April 8th update would probably have gone a long way. 

 

But again, I'm not all that worried about the actual bones. Just highlighting one area to improve on for a hypothetical next time.

Count: Member of a set, as: "I count as an old married man."

Count: Enumerate, as: "I count one error."

Count: Rely upon, as: "I'm counting on receiving my Reaper Bones IV pledge reward Soon™, or possibly sooner."

Count: Nobility, as: "'Graf' is the German equivalent of 'Count'"

 

and of course the cereal one, the tastiest.

      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
