Reaper Bones 5: Enthusiasm and Commentary thread

Recommended Posts

The problem with not coming through with the ship information today has several problem issues:

1. Reaper's habit of trying to be "cute" and tease about upcoming stuff.

2. One of the senior people should have come on the show to explain, not leave it up to Jon and Sadie.

3. Poor planning causes a lot of folks to hedge their bets.

4. This is gonna really feed the trolls, I am trying not to be one myself at this point.

Excellent points.

If Ron had come on for just a minute to explain that "we have a delay, due to unforeseen complications" it would go down a lot smoother.

This kind of announcement should be right in his wheelhouse.

If not, then we are creeping into Peter Principal territory.

The Nolzur's line is also releasing an unpainted version of the ship.  It is up for presales at some sites, for well under $200.  Reaper is definitely going to have to deliver on price and play-ability.

 

I kind of like the idea of having the HUGE Reaper ship, and the slightly smaller WizKids ship, as it would make for a historically/mechanically correct pirate encounter (smaller, more maneuverable pirate ship catching a larger merchant ship).

Completely agree.  I dont expect reapers ship to out price the unpainted version of wizkids ship.  I think that would be unreasonable.  But its got to be cheaper than their painted version.  Otherwise you will have people thinking "Well its cool and all but I have to paint it.  I could just get this pre painted one for a lower price."

I was under the impression the ship announcement was delayed - nowhere close to being canceled. 

 

The ship or no ship will have no effect on my participation on this Kickstarter. 

but any change is going to upset someone.

This is one of the moments it's obvious they need a new Bryan!

I think what put the most disapointment on this, was the completer lack of explanation or sense of "oh we promised"... and even the actual date was non commital... Oh it will be either tomorrow or maybe wednesday... without any concern. Just seemed to not really be concerned at all. 

 

Have to say this has really soured me. I was already on the fence...

For now I will give them the benefit of the doubt. They didn't just randomly start working on the ship 2 weeks ago. They have had a draft for a while, got a little feedback from the teases and are making those adjustments. It probably has to do with the material it is made of, if there are removable pieces, and potentially having it be in different colors or hallow. No they shouldn't pull it, yes they should have been a little more prepared, but a separate kickstarter would not happen. These are huge amounts of effort for a small company.

 

Yes it is a day or two later than I want  but it will be 18-24 months for this to materialize . I can wait. 

 

Greek 3 will open in the next day and we will catch the Bones 4 backer and the critical role appearance is happening.  This week will be fine.

I don't go for big minis, so I'm not going to buy the ship anyway, but I was looking forward to the announcement of the ship's price to give the Kickstarter a shot in the arm.

 

I feel like we have been stuck ever since the announcement of the busts.

I have felt the same with this Kickstarter as I have for the rest, but maybe that is because I am not the type of person to get really really excited over a Kickstarter

 

We are in the 'ship is way too big' department. We wanted a medieval style ship,not a more modern one. So it isn't something we are going to get anyways, though I hope a satisfactory result can be found

 

I tend to avoid the Kickstarter comments, but I might need to start avoiding here too. I know people have legitimate concerns and worries , but I just want to enjoy the final few days and see what unlocks and hope I get the last two dragons before it is all over.

 

I am by no means trivializing your worries and concerns, but it does greatly lessen my own enjoyment of the Kickstarter that this place where we usually have very lively and fun discussions about what we are seeing and hoping for is mostly focused on disappointment and irritation with what is provided. It is my own problem, that is why I am removing myself from the thread so that the worries and concerns can continue to be aired

Joined twitch.

 

Watched twitch ('cause I'm laid up at home).

 

Where's the "cancel" button?  :down:  People PAY for this?

 

It's way too ADHD for me, and the signal:noise ratio is not where I need it.

      Story
      It was the Baron himself who nailed up the poster in Midlam the town square.
      WANTED:  LADY WILDWOOD and sundry associated gang members - For Murder, extortion, petty theft and highway robbery.  REWARD - 10 Gold Coins for Lady Wildwood and 1 Gold Coin per gang member.
      Speculation and rumour was rife!  Who were these new Bandits that were plaguing Midlam?  Who was the mysterious and dangerous Lady Wildwood? It seemed that the town had been under siege, first from Captain Grief's Gang and then the Hobgoblin Rainding Party, and now this gang of merciless women!
      Bounty hunters muttered in dark corners of Inns, looking for information and squads of Town Guard regularly marched out into the surrounding countryside in their pursuit.  
      But still the robberies and raids continued...
      Waylaid by Bandits Volume Two
      A gang of eleven 28mm scale bandits, thugs and ruffians, lead by the Notorious Lady Wildwood, for all of your fantasy miniature games.
      Waylaid by Bandits Volume One
      You can also, should you wish, include our first bandit gang with your pledge.  Captain Grief's Gang is a series of of eleven 28mm scale bandits, thugs and ruffians, including the original stretch goal 'George the Grind'.  You could then mix and match your bandits or have them as deadly rivals!

      It's only an 11 day  project, so hury up and back.

      Tomb Guardians over the past year has been asked to release our miniatures in a resin/plastic material because a lot of you do not like metal.  So for nearly a year we have discussed and researched the best way to produce a high quality, high detail miniature that is far above the current standard on the market.  We are happy to announce that we have found a method and decided to release all our 28mm monsters in a High Resolution Resin.  These miniatures will come with a 1 year guarantee, if you break one we will replace it for FREE!  Just mail it back to us.   Bobby Jackson, Jason Weibe, Gene Van Horne and Patrick Keith help create these amazing creatures.  We hope you enjoy our Monsters and want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
