Didn’t they release the last part of the Barge, the oarsman and lost souls, in the Pledge Manager?

The part they missed was the ghostly fire or water or spirit stuff that was originally supposed to be around the barge. 
 

But yeah, the barge was supposed to have a part 3 that never unlocked.

Well they did release those later. It wasn't clear at the time (or since) if it was a mini expansion or there was more that people didn't get to because it was introduced too late. Not really a huge deal.

I thought the spirit water was shelved because it was proving hard to make. I swear I remember an update about that. Or maybe that was just the base of the ship.

I also remembered there supposedly being a part 3.

I found the update. In this update from Bones 4, Reaper announced and unlocked  the ferryman and lost souls as the Part 3 of the expansion. 
  There was supposed to be a water base, but that wasn’t made due to production difficulties , not because it wasn’t unlocked. 

 

Here is the unlock of part 3 of the barge:

Here is the art work, and you can see the base was mentioned with the first unlock, and was nothing more than a “water base”

Yeah, with the addition of the ferryman and the lost souls, it came out to 13 (LOL) figures with the barge.

 

OOPS, make that 14. 13 souls and one ferryman. Call him Bilbo.

This is the BONES V thread:

 

https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/88310-reaper-bones-5-enthusiasm-and-commentary-thread/&page=336

 

In answer to your post, maybe you might want to wait till they split up the Core Set, usually one can buy parts of that, like the villagers, or the elves I think.

That way you might get what you need?

Somebody moved my original post here from elsewhere, so now I look like I came into the "enthusiasm" thread to complain. That wasn't my intent.

Well you then need to discuss if the Barge really was an Expansion, or just an Add-on.  You will note all the offical Expansions contain these word “Expansion” in the name. The Stygian Barge, was called just that, there was no “Expansion” included in the title. So I don’t think it was supposed to have a large figure count to begin with. And to be honest, the size of that barge makes up for a lot of figures...

How big will that Moray be?

Any ideas yet?

I don't think you came off that way.

At least not to me.

The second unlock for the barge was only the five passengers, so I am pretty confident the ferryman plus the  5 lost souls (3 are doubles) were intended as the third stage of that one.

So, if I do a Facebook post with “#bones5core” that counts as one social media engagement, right? :blink: 

 

I don’t social media much.

No idea - Facebook makes things difficult.

either way, I feel like "sea" is the predominant element here, with the ship, pirates expansion and depths expansion. Hadn't realized before there is so much interest on water themed minis. 

 

Or If we look it from another perspective, maybe Reaper decided on the Ship as the BIG THING this time, and then built this water-y expansions to give people all they need for a sea based campaign/diorama. 

If that was the plan, the title Escape from the Pizza Dungeon seems a bit odd... I wish there were more classic dungeon critters, but many of those have already been made. The Dungeon Dwellers expansion is my favorite for this reason!

OK, I have what I think is a reasonable compromise for a "sci-fi" add-on set that could be called "Alien Beasts"

These are all existing models which would have crossover to both fantasy and sci-fi.

If Reaper wanted to be even nicer, they could add just the beast portion of this one:
Kargir Tundra Beast Rider 14632
https://www.reapermini.com/search/14632

And if they really wanted to be nice, do those four beasts AND throw in some beast from @TaleSpinner's or Izzy's imagination, and have TaleSpnner sculpt it.

Unless Sophie and Friends will be escaping by ship.

The moderators here will do that on occasion. Sometimes they will cull posts out of a thread and make a new thread. 

 

They move things to keep the threads somewhat true to the original topic or to consolidate all posts about one topic in one place. 

 

No worries.

was thinking what would be awesome and maybe drive alot of sales due to teh ship being there. a massive sea monster in segments.  Ranging with segments from like 1 ft tall to several inches. great for dioramas or multi part bases to show size.

 

something like this:

      Story
        Depending on the amount of orders received for each project, delivery dates might vary. The initial shipment dates indicated are not final, and even though we're committed to giving all our customers the best service we can, sometimes the amount of orders received might make the final shipment date vary compared to our initial estimates. Please keep this possibility in mind before placing your order.
      Regarding both the bundles and the stretch goals described above, no swaps of model of any kind are allowed. Therefore, please don’t ask us to swap any stretch goal with other add-ons or any perk models with other miniatures, because that cannot be done.
      We created something for those who like to not take themselves too seriously, for those who would like to relax while painting - with less details, but by no means not enough of them - for those who love their minis with a side dose of cuteness overload and, finally, for those who might have children to introduce to miniature gaming, by giving all of these people something that players will love (or hate, as the case may be) no matter their age!
      Wait a minute… delivery estimated after only two week after the campaign ends? A Greebo campaign?!
      Oh yes, and here’s why: because we’ve started production already! We’re convinced that we can reach the campaign goal, at the least, and that’s why we started the manufacturing process of everything. Therefore, the second you complete your Pledge Manager (let us remind all of you, if you don’t complete it, there will be no shipment, so do it!) your package will be processed and sent, just like that.
      We want to open and close this campaign in record time, and we’re confident that we can do it!

      Kobolds Vs. Goblins is a game designed, tested, built and played by my son Max and me (You saw him in the video).  The concept was something we came up with for a contest on The Game Crafter using roll & write mechanics.  What we ended up making was a fast and fun game that can be played by people of any age.  It's quick and easy to learn and setup is as easy as opening the box. 
       Max and I decided that people shouldn't be forced to buy our game just to play it.  So, you are free to download the full color print and play version of the game using this link.   FREE PRINT AND PLAY  (including solo mode) You'll need 6 normal D6 dice and something to mark the paper.  (For prototyping, we used clear cubes, but pencil with eraser will work also)
       
       
       






      I'll admit... I have no idea how those of you who share KS from others include all the details and fancy stuff. I clearly didn't do this correctly. Munchkin Metropolis traditionally does woodcrafting, and I've been very satisfied with the quality and production time that's come from my prior interactions with him. Figured I'd try and get the word out about his current KS, which he developed with his son.

      A message from Secret Weapon:
       
      Big news time everyone!
      As many of our pledgers know, we need to adjust the Kickstarter - On the positive, we have a good amount of backers and we know that MANY of you are waiting to up your pledges. We have had a really positive response to the product itself, and lots of interest on the customer and retail side. We deeply appreciate this and your support.
      BUT - we have a good amount of backers who are opting to wait on their $1 pledge. This is entirely our fault. We caused this when we locked our core offering behind stretch goals. There is no single item that is core. ALL the options are core. We made it so that many of you had to wait around to buy what you already knew they wanted.
      That's a big boo boo, but it was made with the best of intentions. The system was set up so that there was no mandatory amount, and you added what you wanted and nothing more. We thought that this was better for the customer, but it quickly became obvious the vast majority of backers want jump-in points at set amounts like a usual KS... and weren't entirely sure about a pledge manager that was open during the campaign.
      So, what are we going to do to fix this for you?
      We are going to close the campaign, and relaunch it next week. That sucks and it's embarrassing. But ultimately everything else that happens is great for EVERYONE, because this is what happens next:
      1.) ALL themes will be shown and unlocked right off the bat. If you want Urban Streets or Infinity, you just go get it, no hoops or delays to choosing what you want. You also know exactly what is on offer.
      2.) There will be pledge levels: $50(+), $100(+) and $200(+). The 100 dollar + level will include a set of 3 weathering pigments (really really good ones too - Burning Sands, Dark Earth, and Rust Orange), and the 200 dollar + level will be the pigment set, and a set of 3 genuinely awesome paints. Secret Weapon's Rubber Highlight, Rubber and Tire Black, our most popular colors! At the end of the campaign you will use the Pledge Manager, as usual, to make whatever specific choices you want based on your KS pledge. The Pledge Manger will be available during the campaign for those that would like help figuring out a total pledge level, but that is optional, and you can wait until the end of the campaign to sign up.
      3.) Each of the $50(+), $100(+) and $200(+) pledge levels will have 3 shipping zone options
      Americas, Europe (NOT UK)
      AU, NZ, Asia, Pacific
      United Kingdom (NOT Europe)
      4.) Any extra themes that are developed during the course of the KS will be added immediately, no stretch, we just give you the option as soon as it is available.
      There will be 17 themes live at the time of launch, which doesn't count the licensed product from Corvus Belli and CMON Zombiecide.
