Is the Bones 3 cemetary fencing ever coming out?

Recommended Posts

Did I miss the cemetary fencing coming out? I see the corner posts, but no fencing or gate. Looks like that is the last of all the Bones 3 stuff I got to make it to market. Is there other Bones 3 stuff we're still waiting on?

We're also still waiting on the weapons packs. 

I wanted to buy the graveyard stuff recently, since I'm getting the deko toppers with Bones 4, but couldn't find the fences either.

Wanted to buy the weapon packs since Bones 3 released, sadly I missed that kickstarter.

Hoping they're still going to be released at some point!

Oh yeah, forgot about the weapons since my tally sheet doesn't count them as minis.

The weapons have been super useful so far. I got an extra clear-plastic set, and haven't used them all yet, but I definitely would hope to get them in retail. I'd love to see a wider variety, too.

Making the weapons and fences in Bones Black might make more sense.  The weapons were falling off the sprues by the time I got mine, and they were a tad brittle.

I "thought" I read somewhere here on these forums that the delay was due to packaging.

 

 

But my memory could just be playing tricks on me...............again.

Yeah, I know that is the hold up, it's just been a while now...

That's what I'd heard, too:  that Reaper was finding retail packaging for weapons sprues to be a remarkably tricky challenge.

 

For my part, I love the things:  I bought a bunch of them, and have found them very useful for conversions, mods, upgrades for the Knights of the Noodle-Blades, etc.

It might be hard to pack the weapons on the sprus so they fit with the other parts on the wall.

I don't get this. They have boxes for stuff. Just put them in boxes. The retailers will figure out where to put them on the wall.

Like the tombstones (which ended up coming in a standard blister, but for some reason took forever to get to market as well), I don't get the hold up. Take a picture, put it on a box. Maybe throw a sheet of that blister foam on both sides to keep it from sliding around too much.

While I personally don't mind boxes as a retailer, I'm sure they do get complaints from other retailers about boxes.  If someone has all their minis on hooks, finding a place for a box isn't necessarily easy.  You want to keep like product grouped together after all.  Plus they can't just use a generic box, so there are printing costs associated with that sort of "quick fix".

If the weapon sprues are brittle (as noted above), they need to be packaged so they don't jumble around.  It's probably a little more involved than throwing an extra sheet of foam in there (which also costs money).  Viridius and Mudgullet ended up in a bag in their blister, but it was likely more cost effective for the bigger minis to do that (it still took a long time, I lost a sale of Mudgullet when the DM who had been asking me for it made it past that encounter).

Are the weapon packs the last thing we are waiting on? Or are there others still?
