Need to be looking at the Dorf Line for those costumes.

Some reason this reminds me of that show Carbonaro Effect (hidden camera tv magic show) where the Host Carbonaro is a full size human being but goes & tries on a leprechaun  costume & emerges as an actual smaller person in costume, carrying his legs (prostetics) in his arms.

I think it's more likely that they'll have a massive amount of them up for our viewing pleasure so that we can take loads of photos and drop them all over the internets to REALLY have bragging rights over the non-attendees!!

 

As a non-attendee this year I fully support this motion!!

 

Alas for the KS itself I'll prob pledge what I did last time for 4 due to travel vacation looms a day or two after the KS launches

Well I am a Moderator and echo what Chaoswolf has said.

 

Political posts have been removed or edited out.

Unfortunately, with the direct financial impact on doing business with Reaper that certain European Political Decisions are having for our fellow Reaper Peeps who live in the EU some leakage is inevitable.

But let's please try to keep them as focused as possible.

Reading this I think I have my answer.

No Kickstarter ( that will deliver from UK) for me anymore.

At least not till Brexit has happened and all is sorted out.

I know this is applied now, and I doubt Reaper can make an exception for the KS.

I wished they would let us pay Duties Vat ourselves when we receive our stuff, not up front like this.

This might result in paying double Duties when Brexit has passed.

I will drool over the minis, but I will wait till they hit the EU stores in 2022/2023?

As a separate note, IDK if anyone else has mentioned this, but I would LOVE LOVE LOVE for Reaper to come up with a series of trees of different sizes, types and configurations that I can quickly paint up and drop on my gaming table. I still have yet to find some that I really like for my tabletop and I feel like their team could deliver big on this KS. 

Trees would be really nice. I backed a 3D printer file project without even owning a 3D printer because I liked the look of their trees.

SMALL Humanoid (ie PC races) lesser undead!!!!!! I really could use dwarf skeletons this Monday vs using human-sized ones. Just putting that out there.^_^

You know there is a Bones Dwarf Skeleton already, right?  From Bones 3.  And a Halfling and an Elf.

I do, but are there zombies? How about ghouls? How about plain small skeletons instead of a dwarf fully armored with just a skull for a face or a halfling with butcher knives.  Compared to human sized lesser undead, the smaller races are like female giants in miniatures.

Exactly! We need more than just those 3!! Plus some orc, kobold, goblin, gnoll skeletons/zombies would be great too. 

 

I'm personally hoping for more hobgoblins too. Maybe a warpriest and a wizard? I'd also like some more plant monsters, and some more Tiiks and some Silthies? (why yes, I am looking at my unread copy of Saltmarsh, why do you ask?)

Continuation of the Bones hobgoblins would be great as well. I don't know how many times I've used the ones I have for games. While B5 will not be out when I run Saltmarsh next month, I will be using a couple of those hobbies again for that adventure!!

 

Anther thing I hope for in 5 is more in-line scaling. It doesn't have to be D&D 5e scaling as Reaper isn't a D&D minis company but at least scale them the same through the set. That was one of my biggest issues with 4 was the up & down sizes of minis in the entire line up. I'm not sure how much I'll spend on 5 & with having a hometown game store & 2 games per week at said store, there is a good chance I'll back maybe more then I did with 4.

I certainly hope there is an option to opt out of the hubs. I live in Japan and it has no VAT, I hope I can get stuff sent directly from the USA instead of the two month AU delay.

I'm sure where you live goes with whatever hub is closest to you unfortunately. Thou, I totally understand the reason for not wanting the delay, with the container foul up, I was one of the last US shipment out due to that & I was a Wave 1 pledge. I hope they just abolish the Wave thingee & just package everything by how fast you lock in your initial pledge & by region of course (like it was handed this way, thou seeing Canada get theirs before mine was very disappointing, no offense Canajun members!!!).

Absolutely agree!

I'm an equal opportunity necromancer, I'm not picky about which kind of dead bodies I reanimate for my army. Having a variety of different creature types is more visually appealing than seeing human skeleton #62.

I know at least one forum member chose to ship to a US-based reshipper and then have that company ship direct. More expensive, but at least this time much faster.

Everything but the big stuff.

That’s not exactly what they said.

 

It’ll be a mix of both.
