Okay. So...

 

Now that paypal is working I need to sit down with the pledge manager and several people to put together a list of stuff we're all getting. I already blew my entire initial pledge on a core set and several expansions. 

 

This means I also need a paycheck to play around with. Like, an entire paycheck not actually earmarked for rent or plane tickets or sudden emergencies :mellow:

I listed all of my wants in the order of price, then spent my pledge on the most expensive stuff.   Everything left on my list now is $14 or less, and I figure I can spare $10-20 a paycheck between now and when the pledge manager closes to get it all. 

Reaper may hate the number of orders I generate, though.

Good strategy. I hadn't considered that plan of attack...

It only took me five bones KS's to realize it. Ok, technically only three, since B1 and B2 didn't have add on orders.  And I think ultimately, I'll end up spending more this way. 

It was tough to do it at first, because a bunch of the stuff I really want is in the $6-8 range while some of the more expensive stuff is lower down on my priority. But I finally realized that it will be easier to swallow picking up a catapult at retail prices than the pirate ship.

This is a really great strategy.  I was planning to make a spreadsheet listing the items in order of desire, with any duplicates (extra siege engines, etc.) being placed at the end, after I had gotten at least one of each thing I want, but I may have to rethink doing it in the order you laid out.

 

The only big exception at the moment being the Pirate Ship... They have stated that it will be available in opaque, clear, and translucent green, IIRC.  But the PM only has one listing for it.  I am intending to wait for Reaper to figure out how they are going to differentiate which version a person wants before I order it.

That's a good point - hadn't thought about that. 

Oh well, too late for me to worry about it until Reaper takes some action. I'll worry about it then.

I asked in Reaper Live tonight, but Ron isn't there, so they said "ask Ron tomorrow" on Bones 5 Live, as to when they'll update the PM to account for the three different versions of the ship.

 

Here's a bunch of previewed stuff (much of it'll be in tomorrow's update):

 

The bar from the Brinewind Extras:

Lastly, a couple Power-Ups for the Pledge Manager:

(Sorry, my page had scrolled a bit, so the tops of the images got cut off; there is no price on the beast men image yet, and the Pugh brothers didn't know the price.)

I'm so stoked, because the Demonic Legions is the demons that people had taken pictures of at ReaperCon, and I was so disappointed hadn't made it into the Kickstarter.  I'm so ecstatic because they will make perfect Tanarukk for D&D.  I'll probably get two or three of this set...

 

Edit: Here are some pictures from ReaperCon of those smaller members of the Demonic Legion (presumably Human-sized?)

Well, I didn’t know my evil forces needed a unit or two of demon warriors,  but I guess they do now! 
   Curse Reaper for offering so many cool unit builder options this time for us wargamers! :lol:
 

And I’m loving these Brinewind previews. So much character!   
I can’t help but look at that Brinewind merchant and think of Inspector Clouseau interrogating the blind street musician and his “minky”... ::):

They blew up the image of the Beastmen power-up, so you can see those sculpts better.

A turn-around of the Ogre Porter from Brinewind:

A few other items of note:

 

They will get around to updating the pledge manager to account for the stated three different castings of the Pirate Ship (opaque, clear, translucent green).  It will probably be a while yet, but they will get to it.

 

The Beastmen power-up didn't have a price on it because Ron is probably going to add some wererats to it as well, and will set the price then.  The sense I got was 4 wererats, but can't confirm I actually heard that number.  Just a guess on my party, but since the Demonic Legion was 6 "medium" figures and one large, then a Beastmen set of 8 total medium figures will probably also be around $12.

 

Ron once again teased that a Battering Ram will make it into the Pledge Manager at some point, as a power-up.

 

I asked about the previously-teased Dreadmere sourcebook, and Ron said to check back next week (or the week after).

 

Edit:  Oh, the size of the Wall of Thorns and Wall of Stone was asked about, and they were at first giving responses as to the Wall of Thorns' footprint on the game table.  Eventually they figured out people were asking about the broadface dimensions, not the depth of the footprint, though they were talking over themselves as they were figuring out what we all were asking.  The Wall of Thorns was given answers that amount to: 1.5" long x 2" high x 0.5" wide.  They apparently lost the Wall of Stone print, so couldn't measure it on the gridded mat they pulled out, but given the picture next to Sir Forscale I posted a page or two ago (from last week, IIRC), and video I saw of Sir Forscale on a gridded cutting mat in the first episode of Miniature Mondays, I am fairly certain the Wall of Stone is 2" long x 2" tall (no idea on the width of the footprint).

Hang on, serious panic here.

Ms Colliers artwork showed an excellent moggy tucked in amongst the packs on the ogres back, I can't see it here.

It's still a lovely piece, but somehow that cat made it perfect.

Cat is on the cart now, up near the ogre in front of the crate.

      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.

      Thinking about doing this one; while I found Vance kinda torturous to read, the world is fantastically fun. And I think it'd work really well with the good things I've heard about DCC, so I could give that a try in general.
