Wait...warehouse or boat? lol

 

I heard on the ReaperCon tour this year that they were expanding their facility significantly.  I don’t remember the sq. footage, but i think it was more than doubling their footprint.  They have a lot of undeveloped land, I think.

 

I guess they’re also building a boat?!  :poke:

I'm so excited to see what comes next, the Bones 5 enthusiasm train will be just the thing to break me out of my no painting slump. It's been a stressful summer and counter-intuitively I've barely touched my paints, just haven't been motivated, but I totally broke out a Bones 4 Troll to work on tonight!

That voice definitely sounds like Kit and the first lady voice that asks a question is definitely Adrienne. I don't know about the second lady voice or the child voice.

Is it not time for the stick?

 

No, it is not time for a stick.  It is never time for a stick.  That kind of violence or implied violence is more counter productive.

 

Business Hours at Reaper HQ are 9 AM to 6 PM CST with lunch taken from 1 PM to 2 PM.

Reaper-on-call-24-7 is a ludicrous expectation.

Please try to remember your favorite Bryan also took nights, weekends and lunches during the campaigns.

 

Also, Ron will be much busier than Bryan ever was as he runs multiple departments and will be on the Forums significantly less than previous Campaign Project Leads were.

A new facility was purchased, almost next door to the current.  There is both office and warehouse space existing on the property but my understanding is some construction will also occur.

I have to disagree.

It did not sound like Adrienne to me.

I suspect those are Kit's family.  He probably filmed it in the UK not in TX.

Good point, I was thinking they'd filmed it during Reapercon. You'd definitely know Adrienne's voice better than I do.

Alright, I'm in again. Only for a dollar as I don't see that much I want yet. And also since the wife has informed me I have north of 2k unpainted minis, IHO I don't need anymore. I do have to reluctantly admit she may have a point.

 

You have a count of unpainted miniatures?  I am afraid to actually count!

Well, I didn't. But the wife didn't believe me when I said it wasn't that many.

So Day 1 highlights for me:

Dungeon Dwellers

Troll Bridge

Aganzarax

Fire Giant

Dragon Bust

Catapult

 

Lowlights:

Most of the spell effects (though I like the disc)

Boulderkin

Stain Glass Golem

Kid Heroes

Townsfolk (they are just a bit too static for me)

 

All in all though very happy. Core Set still going to be great for me and there are a bunch of add one I want. Hard part will be figuring out the budget.

Sadly, this sounds like the communication issues from Bones 4 have not been addressed....

Thanks ladystorm - I knew it was mentioned on the tour, but was very fuzzy on the specifics.  Good to know there's already some usable space there as it looked like Reaper is pretty cramped in their current building.  I'll look forward to seeing how they've expanded next year on the 2020 ReaperCon tour.

 

I asked about overnight updates in the thread last night just because I've not done a kickstarter before.  I understand they're a small team and this kind of project stretches them pretty thin.  I'm totally ok with KS updates only during normal office hours.

 

It might help to post updates letting people know when they'll be taking time off, though.  I know Ron posted in the KS comments, but that's not very visible.  Adding something to the campaign text or as an official update might work better to get the word out and ensure people have more reasonable expectations.

 

Thanks for hanging in there during this craziness!  I can't imagine what it's like for the Reaper folks and forum admins right now!

Out of curiosity, yesterday Jon was saying that all of the kid adventurers also have a pet with them, but I can't tell from the picture what 166 has.

      About
      First Legion 75mm Fantasy "Femmes Fatales" Resin Figure Kits
      A new series of provocative 75mm Fantasy Resin Figure Kits, each one beautifully sculpted and cast and a joy to paint.   
      Who We Are
      First Legion has long been a leading producer of 60mm scale superbly hand painted historical metal and resin figures as well as metal and resin figures kits in various scales. We most recently expanded into 28mm Fantasy miniatures with a huge launch of amazing sculpts that will be coming to retail early next year.   Please visit our websites and social media for more information.
      First Legion Historical
      First Legion Fantasy

      First Legion Instagram  
      The theme of the series is "Femmes Fatales", beautiful but dangerous women characters. Whether by force,  guile, or seduction these ladies are not to be fussed with.    There are 7 figures in total, each one more beautiful than the next and ranging in style from Gothic, to far eastern, nomadic, northern, and even an Aztec.   The commonality to them is that they are all stunning models of beautiful, dangerous women.  
      Those of you who followed our 28mm Fantasy Minis Kickstarter will recognize these figures from the "Femmes Fatales" Core Set.   They were originally sculpted in 75mm scale and reduced in scale to 28mm to be included in that KS as part of our 28mm fantasy series.  We present them here as originally conceived.    
      Unlike our 28mm KS, which had 170+ models, this KS is purposely very simple and very succinct.    Stunning models at great prices with rewards shipping in just 3 months!    
      Pledge Levels
      The first 5 Figures listed below are tied to pledge levels with selections to be made in our pledge manager following funding.   The higher the pledge level, but better deal it is on each figure.  
      Early Bird Pledge Levels are open for the first 27 hours.
      Add-On Sets
      The last two are available as an add-ons only, or as part of the "Drop Dead Gorgeous" Pledge Level.  Finally, there are three more that will be optional add-ons tied to stretch goals. 
      Resin Figure Kits
      All miniatures are produced in high quality resin and provided unpainted and unassembled.
      Mature Audience
      The figures below contain some nudity and are not suitable for audiences under 18.
      If you are offended by such figures, please stop reading and just move on.   They are purposely designed to be risqué, sexy, dangerous, and above all beautiful.

      I’m interested in what people here think of this.
      It seems like a great idea, but I’m wondering if there might be some unforeseen drawbacks.

      EDIT: It's live! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/oathsworn/oathsworn-burrows-and-badgers-anthro-miniatures-mouse-dog-cat
       

      We love miniatures. We love tabletop games. We love anthropomorphic animals, from Disney's Robin Hood through The Wind in the Willows to Brian Jaques' Redwall books. So we combined the things we love in our Burrows & Badgers tabletop skirmish game and the accompanying range of miniatures. And our Kickstarter backers have already helped us to grow the range to over 100 miniatures - but now it's time to add some more!

      Some miniatures from previous projects...
       
      Why are we making more miniatures?
      Because we want more characters for our Burrows & Badgers games – my Freebeast warband needs reinforcements, for a start! 
      And we know a lot of other people are looking for more anthropomorphic animal miniatures too. A lot of people are playing Burrows & Badgers now, and many of them have asked for Massive Hounds and a Massive Raptor, so we've sculpted them! Some will want to use them for other tabletop or roleplaying games, while others love painting miniatures, and our figures are perfect for that, full of character ready to be brought to life with your paintbrush....
      And some people just love collecting miniatures; again, we've made this new set of Burrows & Badgers figures perfect for collectors. They are all single piece models, with integral bases, so there are no fiddly parts to be glued on.
      We love making miniatures; we hope you'll love our miniatures too.
       
      Why we need your help...
      We've got 17 new miniatures sculpted, but they need to have moulds made before we can start producing the miniatures. And that's why we need funding; to get the production moulds made, and get the casting process started.
       
      About the miniatures...
      There are other ranges of anthropomorphic animal miniatures out there, but ours are a little different. We didn't want all the races of animals to be the same size. Instead, we've scaled them to each other; so a shrew or a mouse is a very small model, about 20mm tall, and a really big animal like a badger will stand about 50mm tall, for example.
      Each sculpted figure shown below has a scale picture with it, showing its height in millimetres. All our models are supplied unpainted.

       
      The Pledges
      We’re keeping it as simple as possible; there’s an ‘All-in’ pledge, which gets you all the new miniatures in this Kickstarter, and any bonus bits that may come along… there’s also a ‘Pick’n’Mix’ Pledge, if you just want to get a few of the new miniatures. For the Pick'n'Mix, just total up the prices of all the miniatures you want, and pledge for that amount. There's a minimum pledge of £10. There's only six of the sculpts shown so far, but expect more to be added regularly... I'll probably add two or three a day!
       

      ^Minimum of £10

      Pledge Level: The Great £40
       

      Pledge Level: The Small £64

      Pledge Level: All In £99

      About
      -Hi everyone, this time I propose you a Fishing Village:
      5 Houses   7 Footbridges  1 Bridge -A few years ago I did something similar for video games 
      here you can see the video: and I've thought of creating models suitable for 3D printing.
      -The models are in scale for 28 mm miniatures and are divided into components to be assembled without glue only joints.
      -Doors, windows, nets and winches are printed separately.
      -Each house is playable inside, with working doors and on the ground floor there is a fireplace with the pipeline out.
      -The prints you see below have been made with an Ender 3, layer 0.2 mm, infill 5%, Pla Geetech white, the models have been designed to have as few supports as possible, I printed them with an overhang of 80 ° -85 °, support Z distance 0,3 mm.
      -I highly recommend the use of printers with a print bed of at least 20x20x20 cm (for this scale).
      -Paint with cans and acrylic colors.
      -Each house needs about 500-800 grams of filament.
      -I put hooks scattered on the houses to attach cordage or oil lamps 
      -I remind you that only digital models will be sent to you, NOT PHISICAL ONES.
      * Good fishing ... *
      By removing the base you can have houses for a land village.

      Tomb Guardians use many of the same sculptors as Reaper so some of the sculpting styles might seem familiar.
       
      Pictured below is a render of the mage.
