Reaper Bones 5: Enthusiasm and Commentary thread

For those looking at the size of the ship, I did a rough estimate of overall dimensions based on the renders and the provided scale, and compared those to the Falling Star by WizKids. It is going to be HUGE.

I also did an overlay of a picture of someone holding a WizKid ship versus a Reaper estimate, but it is a WoTC copyrighted picture. Not sure if I can post it here.

 

Edit: based on feedback, will post it.

My FLGS, seems to have a sour opinion of Reaper. They stopped carrying their line of paints, and have only a single bones black figure, because the owner told me the BB figures are the same sculps as the original bones figures. I gather it has to do with their distributor.

 

Every dollar you spend at Reaper's store is a dollar that owner does not see. If you know enough people, save your receipts and show him the money he ISN'T getting. Might change his attitude.

Well, they finally remembered they had a comic strip to *supposedly go with the KS progress,...

 

I’d guess that as Reaper’s lead concept artist/Imagineer, Izzy *might* be a wee bit busier than they otherwise expected she might be, given the KS blew through twenty-odd days of stretch goals in a day a little bit ago....

It would not be hard at all for Reaper to produce a series of 3 balloon masts to replace the more normal masts currently with the ship

 

Or one more oblong balloon that affixes to the mast holes:

I've been asking for translucent elemental rings and support struts for Eberron air ships. Ron has several times said no dice. 

 

ETA: I know it's not the same as a spelljammer or dirigible. Just thought it would be worth mentioning.

yeah stuff like that or proper spelljammer ships, i guess would need to be from hasbro license or custom stuff.

 

current campaign has chaos ships (including Orcus' personal ship), and spelljammer ships (drow modified elven ones) that the players now have.

As has been alluded to in other posts, I think this is due to a large percentage of wargamers coming from a model building background. The ones with a model railroading background especially seem to enjoy scratch builds, conversions, and kit bashing.

 

I am of the opinion that those of us who prefer to assemble our minis, rather than have them preassembled, are from those types of hobbies.

 

I'm an outlier, then; I prefer to assemble my minis, and I have no real background for any kind of complicated models.

 

I figure if it's going to be assembled wrong or weird, then I prefer it be because /I/ screwed it up. I might not be able to fix it, but I'll know what went wrong for the next time.

... and it's frequently easier to paint them unassembled. There's always something....

Probably because Reaper doesn't have a license for the specifics. 

Not that I'd trust Ron's word either way, because his track record is so elfing poor.... :/

 

I, however, would also like translucent rings one could use for that. They might also make nice portals, after all. Or. OR! Whirlpool effects for sea battles. Or spell-effect rings for those pesky fireballs.  >.>

Phrasing, or so, no? 

 

I want to see this next encounter. The Ship is interesting, but ... gorramnit, I'm a /fantasy gamer/. I might want the thing. But I have no use for it - I'm not likely to be running .. what, a game set in the Master and Commander setting?! *grubmle* Eh. I might get it anyway, for the gits and shiggles. Who knows.

If you have or know someone with a 3d printer, there is one on thingiverse. I would rather buy one from Reaper, myself, being an unashamed fanboy, but needs must. In spelljammer, if I remember correctly, the converted naval ships were considered the worst of the spelljammers, suitable for use only until something better could be purchased. Just like for an airship, a purpose built gondola would be superior to a converted boat. YMMV. My ship will be thoroughly naval, thank you very much.

      Not sure when it goes Live, but it's set to let me know.

      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.
