I will keep that in mind - I did notice some people mentioning it was Canada-friendly, but I will admit, international shipping for a box that size is not cheap over here, and I know shipping your flatrate boxes to Canada can get expensive too (I once was forced to get very creative getting a lot of comics from Boston to Vancouver.) But who knows what'll be the case by the time I have spare minis?

 

I was also considering two of Deep Depths. Very excited for Part 3 reveal today, I think that'll be more of a deciding factor.

There are a couple folks here who live close to the border. Occasionally the box walks across.

Thank you for the welcome! First post and first time I'm getting in on the Kickstarter. Even though I eyed the past two from afar, I wasn't painting yet when they were happening... It was tempting, and now that I've started painting, I regret not having the Dreadmere figures I was so in love with last time.

All I need now is something to bridge the next year-and-a-half...

 

I am in a somewhat similar boat. Looked some at Bones 3 because one of my GMs was backing it, but didn't have the interest at the time. I became significantly more interested by Bones 4 and backed fairly substantially, despite having never painted before in my life... Luckily I took to it pretty nicely after ordering the two Learn to Paint kits. If you haven't started those yet, that is a pretty good place to begin.

Glad you could join in on the Kickstarter this time. They really are a lot of fun!  Be sure to try and witness the last 48 hours of you can. It will be wild!

I'll keep this in mind - I'm near Vancouver, so the possibly of the box not even touching Canada Post is certainly an option.

Here is your day 29 and a half-ish update.

 

Yesterday saw good growth and the best total since day 8.

Late backers are starting to come in now.

Gap in dollars to Bones 4 has diminished, but we are still on track to do very well. The day 30 graph is a bit misleading since we have more to come today.

I have a question. I've backed this one and I backed Bones 4 but I never found out where to get the images for the signature indicating being a backer. Where are they/how do I do that?

I have, I have - started this year off painting. I still haven't done the Owlbear mini that I got for free, though maybe it should be up next. I was afraid of messing it up because I liked the sculpt so much - but now I know I can get another one as part of Dungeon Dwellers...

Some, if not most of Dreadmere is available now in the Reaper store...

 

And Maggotcrown Ogre will be the bonus mini for Nov....

 

Just sayin'. :rolleyes:

Don't be to afraid of messing up to badly. If you really don't like a paintjob, just bathe the mini in Simple Green for a day or so, then scrub it and most of the paint should come right off. I've had to do this for a couple of minis myself and it worked like a charm.

They were posted early on in this thread.  Give me a moment and I will see if I can track them down.  

 

Edit: Found them! https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/88670-reaper-bones-5-enthusiasm-and-commentary-thread/&do=findComment&comment=1878206

 

Once you have them, save the one you like to your computer. Then click on your profile in the upper right of the top of page.  Then click count Settings.  Then click Signature.   There you can add links and a photo to your signature.

Also, “messing up” is just part of learning. It’s fun to keep your early figures and compare them later on. See how far you’ve come :winkthumbs:

It was only a lighthearted acknowledgement of feedback; it was not a hard commitment to create and add some kind of Cryo Tank Terrain item to anything. 

Thanks for clarifying that - I had to step out of the room and came back in to the end of that, and wasn't sure what had happened.   Then I saw people talking about Cryo Tanks in the Chronoscope expansion last night, and wondered what I missed.

There are also places at the border to get a post office box, or that hold packages for a while. Can get items delivered there. **waves from Vancouver**

 

I'm debating having mine sent to my mother in Oregon, who would road trip up with the loot. Maybe... maybe not. Can decide later.

      Help a small bakeshop survive these COVID days....
       
      https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/sweet-alfas-cookbook/x/10803452#/
       
      Small Town Family Bake Shop at a Critical Point
      Sweet Alfas Bake Shop & Kitchen has been serving the Elizabeth, Parker & Aurora communities for 3 years. Melissa & Luigi Casaretto’s  journey began in 2012 as a fundraiser selling Peruvian Alfajores for their daughter’s dance event. It eventually flourished into a successful online cookie bakery. In 2017 they bought the kitchen they used to rent in Elizabeth, Colorado and Sweet Alfas was finally a brick and mortar shop.

      In 2020, the Covid-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic started to take shape and as early as February we started to see our sales dipping. We improvised and started serving curbside and specialty meals to survive. Unfortunately it wasn’t enough to save the bake shop and kitchen after all. Our business survives primarily on our wholesale efforts and our biggest accounts had to cut their orders by 50%. After reviewing our options we had no choice but to temporarily close and halt our 5 person operation.

      After mulling over what to do next, we decided we were not giving up without a fight. In order to raise funds we are opening our kitchen publicly to the world in the shape of a bakery and kitchen cookbook(as well as other unique perks we are offering).  All of our secrets, techniques and ideas will now be available in your own home. With your help we can catch up on our lease, payroll, supplies and help navigate these new waters we are traveling through. 
      In 2019 our community stepped up and helped us fund a new mixer when we were struggling. While we appreciated the community effort and love our community we have always wanted to give back. So instead of asking for handouts, we are asking you to help us fund a 100 page cookbook with detailed recipes and photography. 
      What We Need & What You Get
      By purchasing our cookbook you can help us catch up on our lease, payroll, supplies and help navigate these new waters we are traveling through with some expansion of our kitchen, bakery and staff.

      You’ll notice we have some tiered packages. We are not only going to offer our cookbook, we are going to include shirts, hoodies, master class videos and gift cards.

      Our goal is $20,000 which is what we were asking for from the SBA. At this time we’ve received very little confirmation from the SBA about our loan. So instead of asking for forgivable money, we want to fund a cookbook for our most loyal customers and supporters. We would rather earn it and show you some love back.
      The Impact
      We have always wanted to make a cookbook and now this opportunity has forced our hand. So on the positive side, we see a win/win situation. We can provide something special globally and save our local bakery, maintain our wholesale accounts in Parker and Aurora, keep our employees and remain in Elizabeth, CO.
      Many of our customers across the US can not try some of our more traditional baked goods because it’s expensive to ship them. So this gives everyone a chance to try our baked goods.  They say restaurants don’t survive after a year of being in business. We’ve survived 3 years and were finally making the right strides.  We’re gonna be here for a very long time and we may even continue pressing cookbooks in the future. Risks & Challenges
      This will not be a short order(pun intended). We will have a long road ahead of us and we are still not in the clear from everything happening globally during this pandemic.
      We will use the funds to catch up and reinvent ourselves(a 3rd time) in order to adjust to the "new normal" of Covid-19. We are hoping to add a fryer and overhead extinguishing system to provide some fried goods, donuts and churros.  We will need to negotiate with debt collectors, property managers and our accounts. We will need to heavily market this cookbook and our bakery.  Melissa and I both come from extremely competitive marketing and sales backgrounds in the tech industry. We are capable of overcoming these hurdles and getting Sweet Alfas back on the map.  Other Ways You Can Help
      We are all in a crisis, not just businesses. Many people are out of work, struggling to pay their bills. We understand and wish the best for you and your families. There are non-monetary ways to help us out.
      Tell your siblings, parents, best friends and coworkers about this campaign. You can share our campaign on facebook and more using the Indiegogo share tools!

      Unfortunately, all rewards are physical/US Only right now.
      Also, they've chosen 'Flexible funding', but since they're at 45% already, with 29 days left, they have a decent chance of making it. 
       
      Me?
      I'm in it for $5(no perk pledge) because they make cookies...

      So here's Ettinstone, a tile system that should work with most other 25mm tile systems. It's magnetic, double sided, versatile, and super easy to build with. Also it's roughly about $1.20 per 2x2 tile before shipping at the lowest level, and about $1.00 per tile at the highest level. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1215751272/ettinstone/
       

       
      The tiles are made in ABS plastic, so it won't break easily either. :)
       
      The Gallant Goblin made a video that really shows off how quick it is to assemble, disassemble, and reassemble with this set, as well as showing how well it works with both Warlock and Dwarven Forge tiles. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qvehn-WzpjU
       
      Stretch goals at $18k and $26k for half walls(2x1") and quarter walls(2x0.5", AKA pillars/wall corners).
