Reaper Bones 5: Enthusiasm and Commentary thread

Recommended Posts

@dschumm Here is a link to me posting the screenshot of the launch. Two posts below it is a screenshot of Reaper Live where they show Sir Forscale with the Dreadmere rowboat. 

 

https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/88670-reaper-bones-5-enthusiasm-and-commentary-thread/&page=293&tab=comments#comment-1884659

 

FYI - the rowboat itself, not counting the pole w/ the lantern, is 3" long.

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.

Is each red or blue square an inch?

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.

So the Wiz Kid ship is a 20-Gun Brigantine? 

 

Chris Lewis has modeled up a 30-Gun Sloop of War.

holy crap. you have that setup in your house!??!?!

Yep.  When we moved 3 years ago, one of the wish list items was me being able to have a dedicated gaming space.  We found a great place with a pool table area that got repurposed into my gaming area. I did a whole thread on it here

 

 

So we need 15 new backers now to match Bones 4. Think we can do that during Bones Live?

A small Chinese Junk would be awesome!

 

You might want to look at the "Clever Paper Junk". I got their sloop, which I quite liked and have been thinking about picking up the junk as well.

I would expect the Reaper ship to be the better sailer since it carries much more canvass. 

 

They could be about evenly matched in firepower. It would depend on what each ship is armed with. Ten 24 pounders in the broadside against Nine 18 pounders and six 9 pounders would be roughly even.

Sadly, it is not the daily Twitch feed we have gotten during the KS period that has given us the "doubting Thomas" attitude. In the months previous on Reaper Live, Ron especially has made it quite clear that he enjoys baiting the audience by teases and sometimes rather sophomoric acts. So that is why many of us are guilty of little faith.

 

One person calls it baiting another calls it promoting...there isn’t a fine line between them. Kind of a blurry mess where you’d like to have a line.

The Wizkid ship missed the mark for me because it has separate cardboard cut outs for decks. 

Yea, whats worse is their prototype designs that the previewed didnt have that.

Its difficult to win an arms race when you're two years behind.

The Soviets managed to keep up and pull ahead a few times. sputnik, Yuri Gagarin, Foxbat. There is an itneresting take on this in the historical science fiction series "Worldwar/Colonization" by Harry Turtledove.

One of the CAV guys has insanely epic and large 3D mountain maps to play on. 

 

As for ships, if we're putting requests in I want a Bluenose, because, well.  Reasons.   That and the teased small ships.  I'm looking forward to getting a few of those...

A Sloop of War, a Cog, a Galley, and a Drakkar would complete my list. Dwarven Ironclads I "think" I could scratch build.

      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.
