Reaper Bones 5: Enthusiasm and Commentary thread

Recommended Posts

Just completed mine:

Order #458
12-12-2019
Bones 5 Core Set x1
Pirate Ship x1
Brinewind Expansion x1
Chronoscope Expansion x1

 

 

One feature that I miss from the old Pledge Manager is when you were viewing the rewards, it told you how many you had already ordered.

I’m suddenly unable to sign in to the Pledge Manager. It’s been fine up until today but now I keep getting a “Not found” message. 

 

Has anyone else experienced this problem?

Not me. I just tested it and it let me in without error.

I know some people have been having trouble with capitalisation in their email addresses, so maybe check that?

So, I think I'm done with the pledge manager. I added Murkillor. Everything else will wait for retail.

 

I mostly wanted the undead and the Dragonkin.

 

I am really thankful that the Reaperpeeps take such good care of us, and let us cherry pick the items we want.

I knew I was using my pledge dollars for every big thing I wanted - expansions, pirate ship, core set.  Figure it will be easier to add the smaller dollar items later. 

Now that I've spent my pledge, I just went through and selected everything else I'd like to get, just to see what it totals up to.  GULP...

Yeah, that's going to be $50 a month between now and when the pledge manager closes.  Time to start donating plasma.

Oh, crud. The new PM doesn't tell you what you've already backed for? I don't remember what I added in my first step of the PM. I'd better dig out that email confirmation.

It's not the most convenient, but there still is the "Order History" option.

 

But, yes, I miss having the PM tell me right on the page what I ordered previously.

They announced a few "power ups" for the Bones 5 Pledge Manager during tonight's Reaper Live.

 

There will be a Battering Ram sculpted by Chris Lewis.

 

Bobby Jackson did a set of six different demon guys (a bit bigger than humans) that would work great for a wargame unit or D&D, and those will go into the pledge manager.  The leader has big wings and a sword.

 

Jason (Weibe?) did some "beast men," an extra Son of Barty, and some Mongrel Men, all of which should make it into the pledge manager.

 

They will have different options for the ship (still planned opaque, clear, and translucent green), but those options have not been put into the pledge manager yet.  I know some have already locked in and paid for a pirate ship; I'm wondering how they are going to handle figuring out which of those eventual options those early orders are for...

 

That's all that was Bones 5 related.  No new renders or anything.  They have had the catopblepus 3d print on the turntable for the last few episodes, but they haven't explicitly showed it off, so far as I know.  If you watch the upload on YouTube, there is at least one spot where they go to the "QVC Cam" to show off something else, and you can see the catoblepus fairly clearly.

 

I locked in my first order on Tuesday.  Wave 3, Order #245.  I got the Core Set and Dungeon Dwellers in the first order, then quickly followed it up with another order for the Shadows of Ravenhome encounter, which ate through most all of my initial pledge.  I'll be making many more orders in the months to come.

I believe earlier they spoke of this as add-ons for the ship. Like it would come normally as shown on the pictures, but they would have seperate options for a cool shipname plaque and other such add-ons to the ship.

Not things that are vital for the ship to work, but things that would make for nice enhancements.

Did they ever decide on the ship name everyone voted on?

THat name was just for the name the product will have. They spoke of multiple options as add-ons for ship names. 2 names they offer plus a blank plaque is what I recall.

I haven't seen the latest Reaper Live episodes, but the last I saw was Sophie's Revenge was the most voted pick by a big difference. This seems plausible to be one of the plaque options then.

So with the election results in the UK, it seems Brexit is very likely to happen soon. The other EU hub will be the one to be used for the kickstarter I'm assuming.

It's good this is known up in front so everything can be smoothed out in time. It was in Germany as I recall. Wonder what we'll hear about this in the upcoming weeks =)

      Right now it's just a Notify Me page.
      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.
