Reaper Bones 4: Information Thread

Recommended Posts

Jason Wiebe's FB page mentions that the 2-headed troll has an option to toss a pig. But the KS graphic shows him only with the rock. 

 

Is the pig version actually available in the KS through this add-on? TIA!

Day 2 Infobit summary part 1 (emphasis added is mine):

 

Quote

@mgblz92 - none of the previous 3 projects had even remotely identical funding "curves" when plotted on a graph to each other. Direct comparison is nigh impossible For instance, Bones 1, which funded the highest, only reached $30,000 a the end of the first 24 hours. Bones 2, on the other hand, reached a million in 24 hours, and bones 3 hit $700,000 in 24 hours.

 

Quote

is Enos Kline doing any sculpting for you this time around?

-

@GK - I'm not currently aware of any sculpts by him, but I would not say that there won't be any by the end.

 

Quote

Why are two handers rare? Are they harder to cast?

-

@Zombie Painter - Not really harder, although they do require a little more planning and preparation.

 

Quote

Should we assume that this will complete the Chronoscope expansion or will there be a part 3. There is no teaser on the image..

-

@M. Stegenga - we reserve the right to expand it further, but are not revealing any plans to do so.

 

Quote

@Shannow777 - it's perfectly ok to add items before unlock. Remember, the initial goals was 30,000. If nobody would pledge until THAT had been unlocked, nothing COULD be unlocked. Pledging for "locked" goals is encouraged.

 

Quote

Yes, ALL Backers will Pay shipping, and ALL backer MUST use the pledge manager. Kickstarter does NOT collect your shipping address, and they do not give it to us, so you MUST use the PM to give it to us. Additionally, you MUST use the PM to tell us which rewards, among the many, you are interested in receiving.

 

Quote

@K. Jones - we have changed policies from lessons learned across multiple projects. all of the information you need to know will be on the project page, and should anything change, we will make changes to the project page (if it happens while the project is live) or via update, if it happens after September 2.

 

Be aware if you are in the EU that the Brexit laws have literally not been written, so we are unable to predict what those laws might demand of us in terms of changes. We have done our best to implement a plan that is flexible enough to accommodate reasonable changes invisibly from your perspective, but much remains unknown.

 

Quote

@Anonymous- We will packages all of your orders into as few packages as possible. We cannot guarantee t this time that any rewards will or will not fit into flat rate, but our calculator does not assume such.

Pledges made under different PM accounts are separated, as we do not have any way to recognize that

Day 2 Infobits summary part 2:

 

Quote

@Cat - only 30% of backers have used the PM to enter their rewards, so currently, yes, the two systems do not line up well. However, extrapolating from that subset, we can see which rewards are going over well.

 

Quote

does the miniatures come with a base as shown on the pictures?

-

@Simon - the miniatures will come with bases, but some models bases may not match the mock-ups precisely.

 

Quote

Ok so who at Reaper is a pug fanatic?

-

@David Douglas - Jason Wiebe, the sculptor of those rewards. He has several pugs in his family.

 

Quote

The dragonman. I have to ask...is it too late to do a wingless version...

-

@Bane - he's sculpted with the wing sockets. We're not changing that at this point in the project.

 

Quote

Any chance of making the previous Bones Core Sets available as add-ons?

-

@Paint Monk - That is not planned, and would seriously undermine our retailers and hurt future sales. Our lifeblood is your store, and we cannot afford that kind of action.

 

Quote

@Reaper is there a chance we can have all multi part bones not pre assembled?

-

@Cat we assemble anything that's reasonable for us to do so, because pre-assembled minis sell, on average, 3x better than models that require assembly.

 

Quote

@Josue Morales - typical averages per backer by the end of the project are in the neighborhood of $200. Right now that is a difficult number to support, but we have lots more reveals and goals coming up across the next 4 weeks.

 

Quote

@Bane - Ron, our art director, has the keys to the previews. I am only Public Relations (for the purposes of this discussion, my actual job is much more confusing).

 

Quote

Speaking of pies, will there be a pizza in the face if we top 3.14 mil?

-

You know what, Granite, I'll take TWO pies to the face at 3.14 million if y'all like the idea. That was actually really really fun.

 

Quote

Is there any chance of getting some of the reaper bones miniatures from past kickstarters?

-

@Cole Chambers - that is not something we normally offer, and have no plans to offer this time

 

Quote

Okay - the High Rollers - big D6 (not pyp). I don't get his name. All the rest are fairly obvious, but Aleon?

-

@Pinkymadigan - Alea is Latin for "die" (the singular of dice, not 'death')

Pips are the dots on a 6 sided die.

Day 2 Infobits Summary part 3:

 

Quote

can I pledge the shipping later on? like 2 months after the campaign is over?

-

@Ofek - yes, but remember that if shipping is unpaid by the time we close the PM, we will not ship your rewards.

@Michael Dutcher - you can do either, add shipping now or later. If you do so now, you are less likely to forget.

 

Quote

Is the two-headed troll hurling a pig for real?!!

-

@Herbert - yes, that's for real. We were going to reveal the optional pig on a slow day.

-

a sneak peek at the battering ham is here:

http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php…

 

Quote

I personally would like to see a core set without goblins and kobold.

-

@Chris Spitz - be aware that we're not making a version of the Core without these items, and we're not removing any future goblin/kobold plans from the set.

Negative votes fall entirely on deaf ears

 

Quote

I can tell you that I literally just heard Ron in the last 10 minutes give an art order to a sculptor for at least one idea from fan suggestions. And several other fan suggestions are already on the slate.

-

@Dan It's multiple things - a set of 3, in fact.

 

Quote

Here is a question, in the core set the dragon, is it a specific color or is that up for interpretation?

-

@Chris Spitz Gauth has been depicted as both a Red and a Blue in official artwork.

 

Quote

Any chance of seeing minis of Mr Bones' adventuring party?

-

@Ian Mulcahey - It's a pretty good bet for a later reveal

 

Quote

will the minis come with bases like the ones in Reaper bones 3 Kickstarter?

-

@Jardanes - we have not announced bases as a part of this project. It is a reasonable assumption that at some point they might make an appearance.

 

Quote

@granite - anything we see over and over by a variety of people has more weight than something repeated only by the same person. What lights your gestalt imagination aflame, that's what we want.

-

Mad Doctor, you can confirm that their requests are not always in vain. You saw firsthand fan ideas come to life and become popular goals

Day 2 Infobits Summary part 4 (last one for day 2):

 

Quote

Don't forget the dinowomen :)

-

@Kristopher, they're not mammalian, so their sexual dimorphism is more subtle, and likely related to coloration and not visible characteristics

 

Quote

does reaper start to gauge trends near the end of the campaign and shorten or lengthen dollar amounts needed to reach all planned stretch goals or are the stretch goal dollar targets not altered after the campaign has started?

-

@Rattasak - we evaluate the project daily and adjust goals and rewards as needed

 

Quote

@Ant - we haven't looked at the spreadsheet. It's a fan project to keep suggestions tallied and tracked.

 

Quote

What are the 'Brain-head' looking things in the chronoscope expansion set? (There are three of them in row 3)

-

@Therea Young, Master aliens. similar in many ways to both the aliens in the classic Trek Episode The Cage/Menagerie, or mars attacks aliens

 

Quote

How much of a difference does the pledge wave make?

-

@Carl Black - about a day and a bit, in terms of real shipping

 

Quote

So what are the bases for the chronoscope minis going to look like?

-

@Ant - probably similar to our existing Bones Chronoscope bases - discs, with tech or rock patterns. We have to have new bases sculpted specifically for them

 

Quote

So are the 24 bonus goblins the same designs as the 6 goblins in the Bones 3 Core Set?

-

@Ben - yes

 

Quote

@Sam burnett - for most of (n)ext 30 days, one goal a day will be the norm, not 12+. this is normal and expected

 

End of Day 2.

 

Huzzah!

Hi guys, I've noticed something in the FAQ regarding the sizes.

 

It mentions Sir Forscale being "Human Sized". This can lead to confusion for those unfamiliar with our good knight or 28mm scale minis in general. It would be useful to get his true dimensions (in inches and mm) in the FAQ. From bottom of base to tip of sword and/or top of helm.

New to Kickstarter and need a little clarification about how my pledge works.

 

Once I've chosen items in the Pledge Manager equal to the amount I pledge during the KS can I then come back later and add more items (that I have to pay for immediately) that exceed the amount of my initial pledge?

 

As an example, I only pledge enough for 1x Core Set during the KS campaign and I choose 1x Core Set in the Pledge Manager at the close of the KS. Can I come back in March of 2018 and add another Core Set for the immediate cost of $100 (+ shipping)?

 

If I add items in the Pledge Manager after the KS closes will they cost the same amount that they did during the KS?

 

How dumb was I miss out on the first 3 Bones kickstarters? [Answer: very].

 

:)

 

Thanks!

Yes. The PM will not be able to accept additional funds for the first few weeks, while we collect your pledge data to give you credit for you pledge correctly, but in general, this is accurate.

Yes, as long as you have a pledge, even if you'vee spent it all, all rewards you select will be at KS backer prices.

18,000 backers got to our first project, out of 8,000,000,000 people on the planet. You are hardly alone, nor are you dumb for such an omission.

I suspect you are on the Kickstarter page.  There are only two pledge levels there (many waves, three zones, only two price points).

You select your level and then adjust your dollar amount a needed to cover the items you are interested in, including shipping.

 

In the pledge manager is where you will make those item selections.  That is a calculating tool at present but will be switched over post project for you to make those individual selections.
