Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

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. 

 

If they would have announced the date just once and then didn't start on time that would be one thing but they again gave the date a couple of days ago.  They did not sound confident at all about it but that really set up people's expectations.  Now I am guessing we will have another day with no shipping combined with probably most Canadians receiving their orders before US even begins I don't think anyone should be surprised by backers being upset. 

A quick message on one of their social media platforms would go a long ways.  I don't have social media but from what I understand that is the whole point of social media, to give quick messages and updates about how you are doing.

That's a little mean to the city of Red Deer, isn't it?  It's not like it's their fault the tracker has been stuck on them for days.

 

Hopefully they will be surpassed today and the tracker will move on.

It's bad enough for them it's a boring city that most call "Dead Rear", and many young residents will "escape" to Edmonton or Calgary only to find out that hey, those cities are just as boring and nowhere near as pretty... And more expensive to live in, too.

Yeah, I'm not going to say I'm not disappointed at more time slipping away before US shipping.  The kids have spring break right now so I had been hoping for a family unboxing. 

 

I really, really hope that there is either shipping or info very soon.  I'd be fine with either.

On a happier note, I selflessly tested the shipping speed from the UK to Germany again. I really needed that Orc shaman, I just had one of those curse a player in my last game, so it felt like destiny that he became the miniature of the month. The player is super thrilled as well.

Took the order 3 days (plus weekend) to get to me from the time I got the shipping notification. Hopefully the KS order will be shipped in a similar way.

 

Edit: Also, does someone have a size comparison from the rulers of hell to the giants?

Has anyone asked for an update on the reaper facebook group & tagged them?   I'm sure someone is watching there, at least occasionally.

They deleted my comment "Any word on US shipping?". It was off topic, but still, kind of annoying that they aren't saying anything and ignoring requests for info. They have to know we're a needy bunch by now

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

Being not wrong and being forgiven are two completely different things. I know because my wife told  me so. :huh:

 

I’m interested in how much my shipment will weigh. This is by far my largest KS ever, having pledge at Bones2x3 level!

 

(It helps me if I standardize  my pledge levels so it doesn’t look like as much as it really is.)

Wow.  Off topic on the Reaper page?  

 

I can only imagine things are crazy there. 

 

I wondered why I didn’t see a stitch of chatter about Bones 4 shipping on the FB page.  They must be just wholesale deleting everything new that appears.

      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
