Bones 3 Arsenal/various armory sprues

Recommended Posts

Well, pledge manager is still open, I suppose it is possible to rally support for another Power Up option.  A number of the sculptors tune in to the twitch streams....

Why not just put them into zip lock bags, staple a card onto them and call it a day? I know it's not as easy as loading it into their packing machines, but it could be done and make a lot of people happy. Maybe have someone( @Reaper_Jon) set up a poll here and gauge interest. I cannot believe it wouldn't be worth doing.

I'd definetly get some of those weapons if they become available in the Reaper pledge manager or the (UK) online shop, even if it's in limited quantity and/or unpackaged. And I second the idea that getting other/the same weapons with a future kickstarter (but better molds, so they fit the packaging machines) would be super lovely.

Why even waste time and effort on packaging the sprues in bags? Do they really need the protection if they are not to be displayed in stores?
Just sell them direct to retail through the reaper online store. If the sprues are bothersome to sell as singles and not to be reprinted anyway due to the wrong size of the oveall sprue, put them into some limited editon bundles, or even do a miniatures monthly that features converting some minis with the weapons.

What really does not make any sense is just to let them take up space in the warehouse when there obviously is demand for them from existing customers.

 

And if they prove really popular and subsequently all the stock vanishes, take it as a sign to re-do the sprues properly for retail packaging.

Last I talked to @ron we had discussed making a box that could hold these and sell them into retail, im not if things have changed. I know that people have wanted them so i wanted to bring it back up. I have a feeling they will come, either in there current form or in a different form later on. 
I will ping him again and see what is happening. :)

If you guys decide to remake them, can you scale them down a little bit in size? They're currently just a bit too big.

They are awesome! I have started being stingy with mine since I didn't know if they would ever be available at retail. They are great for conversions or adding to bases or creating decorations to hang on the walls of taverns.

      Right, so this is probably a stupid question, but I'm gonna ask it anyways, because, well, I'm uncertain.
       
      So a week ago, I purchased the D&D/Army Painter Monster Paint Set. Fantastic set, contains more paints than I'll need ever for a decade for a year for an undetermined period of time.
       
      Anyways, this set came with three washes - Shadow Wash, Flesh Wash, and Brown Wash. As recommended by several other painters on a different post, I decided I'd use these premade washes rather than the thinned-down paint I had been using in the past. However...
       
      I doubted, and now I'm uncertain. After a quick google search, I'm even more confused as I saw contradictory answers, and answers that weren't really answers. I know I'm being irrational, but do you use these the same way as thinned-down paint (applying to the miniature after it's been basecoated?), or do you use it some other way?
       
      Again, stupid question, but as they say, it's better to be safe than sorry. Thanks!

      Good morning guys! 
       
      Q: if buying one of the reaper core sets (108 bottle set), what's the main difference in them? 
       
      I'm looking into buying a complete paint set. I've been doing a ton of research and have settled on a reaper core set (i already own several reaper paints and love them).  I know that everyone suggests a blend of several companies based on which has the best,  e.g. yellow,  or metallics. I just want to make it simple, buy a set and build from there. 
       
      I'll mostly be painting 40k and privateer press models with some terrain and 3d prints mixed in (i have a cheapo set of acrylics from Michael's for large terrain and 3d prints).
       
      I've also considered the Vallejo Model set, and Army Painter Mega Set.
       
      Thanks in advance!

      Ordered a reasonable amount of paints from an online store that carries Reaper here in Canada....  All of the other paints come across as normal, but this one....  Well, uhm...
       


       
      I'm going to venture a guess it's a goner, or can it be saved?  There isn't even a liquid sound when shaking the bottle, just the sound of the agitator stuck in the bottom moving around somewhat.

      Howdy,
       
        Do I just show up at the Premier Event Center at 5pm on Wednesday, and flash the bar-code from my itinerary, or what? I would hate to miss out on something due to not being at the right place at the right time or lack of correct documentation, etc..
       
      Please advise,
      Kev!
