Reaper Bones 5: Enthusiasm and Commentary thread

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.

      Just a fun little surprise I happened across earlier.  No pictures of the dice and it's ending today, but some really nice ones on their store and I've friends who own some so I thought I'd give it a go.

      About
      Welcome to the Great Wall draft page – the campaign is not live yet, but we will be gradually adding more and more information about the game here! We are incredibly excited to hear your feedback, so please let us know what you think. If it looks interesting to you - make sure to click the "Notify me on launch" button!
      The Great Wall is a new major board game from Awaken Realms (creators of Nemesis, Tainted Grail, Etherfields and many other acclaimed products). Players will take the roles of generals of an ancient oriental empire who lead the defence against ruthless hordes. You will need to gather allied advisors, manage your workers, recruit armies and, together with other players, raise and defend the Great Wall! As the game progresses, you will often need to co-operate or negotiate with other players, but make no mistake – there can be only one winner!
      This fresh worker (and soldier!) placement game for 1-4 players faces them with many difficult choices and often pushes them to interact with each other. You will be assigning your workers to eleven different locations, such as Tea House, Quarry, Messenger Post, or Barracks, using special Command cards that have additional effects. Production in locations activates ONLY when all their slots are filled, but filling them all by yourself can result in a penalty. On top of that, players can buy overseers who will give additional output every time a location becomes activated. This creates a lot of involving long- and short-term strategies.
       Each player starts with one unique General, characterized by their asymmetric power, as well as the production level. From there, you will further customize your economic engine and fine-tune your strategy by recruiting advisors who provide additional bonuses.
      Eventually, a Wall Defence phase beings, where players place previously build armies on Horde Cards – earning Honor (Victory points) and looting resources from the defeated troops. This requires smart management of three types of units: Archers, Spearmen and Cavalry. Players place these soldiers one by one, playing the Tactics cards that create another layer of interaction.
      Gain meditation by shooting with the Zen Archer, then spend meditation on a Cavalry Squad Leader to move your Cavalry around the battlefield faster, and – finally – finish off by getting extra Honor for each of the Cavalry’s engagements thanks to the Banner Holder. There are endless possibilities for great combos and memorable plays.
      On top of that, your Advisors and General might give your troops extra abilities, such as shooting twice or looting twice the resources!
      All of the above makes the Great Wall one of our most strategically involving designs that will be appreciated by many different groups of players: those who love euro-styled games with their intricate economies and engine-building, those who love over-the-table play, bargaining and negotiations – and finally, those who simply like to wage war on a beautiful map.
