Reaper Bones 5: Enthusiasm and Commentary thread ((RPM CLOSES December 1st))

Is Reaper going to continue the post KS ordering they have done the first 4 KS? Some stuff I am iffy on and wanting to see the physical models before pledging. Plus it would allow more time for me to get funds.

Just be sure to pledge a bit of money, $14 is a nice number, Now. Pledging something now means you get the KS price levels.

 

If you don’t do that, there is an upcharge of 20%. So one $14 Add-on choice would then be $16.80.

From what i understand, the wizkids prepainted storm giant is between 6-7 inches tall. The GF9 official collectors series resin storm giant is: about 5.5 inches tall to top of head (without the curve thing on the helmet) and without base.  He would be taller but his legs are spread wider in a battle stance. if standing straight, he's around 6 inches or a bit more. With the head frill thing, he's near 7 inches tall. 

 

This bones one is 4.72 inches.

"No way," I thought (despite owning 3 of them... So I should know...). Yep, the horsehair crest on his helmet is just over 6 inches tall.

Maybe it'll be on par with the old D&D mini from Giants of Legend (IIRC).... She's 4.5" tall (though partly due to propping her helmet up on her head. 

 

From the size you quoted, it might be on scale w/ the Storm Giant coming out in Pathfinder's Legendary Adventures set later this month.

Isn't that only if you join after the KS ends? If you were in the KS, at any level, the prices are unchanged?

That is a bit disappointing....hmmm
Seems reaper favors Pathfinder me thinks...
Pathfinder is getting a new huge sized storm and cloud giant and they are so much smaller.  Really disappointing.  Might be able to use him for an "empyrean" but might be still too small.

I think Reaper tries to aim between the two - so it can serve as either Large or Huge depending on the GM.

 

I'm sticking with PF, but I think Megan - currently snoozing - is maybe planning on starting a 5e game for her Bounty Board. (For such a small person she can take up an amazingly large amount of room on the bed - and I don't want to wake her up. She sprawls. ::P: )

I believe it was mentioned by Ed that if you buy into the kickstart AFTER its over.  You dont get the Kickstarter prices, BUT if you do buy in.  You can make multiple orders while the pledge manager is open at Kickstarter prices.  
Is my understanding.  

Also supposedly there might be a window to order if you were late to the kickstarter but prices would be slightly higher.

If you sign up now, before the main KS ends, even for $1, you can still order during the later phase at the prices we see now. If you would wait to sign up until after the initial KS span, then you can still order but will pay a 20% premium.

4.25" isn't in between.  Thats specifically Pathfinder size...

Whats worse is all the pics of the storm giant make him look super tall.

Okay, my mistake for not stating I am confirmed doing core. I am backing this now. So there is only an upcharge if you do not back at all before the campaign ends. They didn't change the rules that even if you back now, the post KS fundraising prices change?

I just saw that Kicktraq now has enough data to project a final value for the campaign of $3.3 - $5.5M.  It says experimental, but does anyone know how accurate it tends to be?  If this thing goes to $5.5M, Reaper’s going to need about 40 more stretch goals than they’ve ever needed before.

 

 

 

Kicktraq doesn't account for the initial surge nor the last-minute surge.  It simply goes off the most recent trend.  As an example, it forecast on Day 1 that this KS would do in excess of $30 million. I believe Reaper aims for about 1 stretch-goal per business day, and Reaper the last campaign was run very successfully this way, so I'd say it's probably going to be about the same.  I'll say low-to-mid-3, since that keeps up with the past campaigns.  And with luck I'll be pleasantly surprised.

You are good. Once the initial KS ends in 25 days, you will still be able to up your pledge amount later with more stuff at today's pricing.

      Story
      Echoes of Camelot: Arthurian Legends is a project that will expand our 75mm resin miniature range with new and exciting models based on the Matter of Britan, particularly around the figure of King Arthur and his Knights. We have many cool surprises prepared should you help us bring this dream to life.
      These miniatures have been sculpted and painted here at the Big Child Creatives studio with the collaboration of some of the most talented miniature artists out there. And what is more, they will be manufactured by our own talented team of resin casting experts. This allows us to monitor the process closely to ensure the best quality in the market and a timely delivery.
      We have learned a lot from our previous campaigns, and we want to put all this experience to good use, repeating everything we did right, improving upon it, and correcting our past mistakes. We invite you to join us in this journey of discovery throughout the Matter of Britain and its amazing cast of unique characters.
      This campaign is a journey of discovery, full of surprises such as custom bits to make your miniatures even more striking than they already are. Some of these kits will be Kickstarter exclusive, so those of you who choose to support us will be able to proudly show it through unique miniatures, even more full of life and character than our regular releases.

      Microworld Games (which I run) has their first Kickstarter ever live:
       
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/microworld-games/6mm-fantasy-crusader-kingdom/
       

       

       

       

       
      All stretch goals have been met, with a bit less than 2 weeks to go.  I know 6mm fantasy is a bit of a niche within a niche, but thought I would post for anyone interested in element-based mass battle wargaming.  I'm hoping the KS platform enables me to push out more interesting projects a bit quicker.
