They have hinted at it during some of the live streams, but the guy that writes it is dealing with other things in life, which is slowing down progress on the sourcebook.  That's the last info we got, maybe about 4 weeks ago.

Was there a mention of the fourth figurehead?

Yes.  They are trying to also include the Dark Maiden (no mention of which of the two versions of that model) as an additional figurehead.  If you look back through this thread, I posted the product numbers for the two versions of the Dark Maiden.

Thank you for covering for my forgetfulness. I've been so busy that I haven't been able to keep track of this thread like I used to.

So on the KS Pledge Manager page there's a "Base Boss" section, but nothing underneath it. Something being added? 

I'm hoping it's an option to have bases shipped along with everything else.

So how should we raise issues of concern that don't involve subscribing to twitch and spending hours we don't have trying to see an answer? Based on my experiences trying to paint ziba I want to avoid anything that's not plug and play assembly. Anything that is cut weirdly that requires angling and forcing to assemble is a non starter. I really don't want to have to deal with selling those but I'm never putting up with that again. Not worth the aggravation.

You can tag me on here, or on all of our socials, and i will try to give you the best answer that I can @lexomatic. Ziba was apart of our new run of bones black and she was apart of the very first iteration of the new material. We have learned some stuff in the process and have heard feedback with the Rock Troll and Maggotcrown ogre, as well as Ziba. The hobby is split into many many different parts, where some people like putting their stuff together and some people just want to take it out of the package and play with it right away. So right there we know that it won't make everyone happy but we try to help everyone as much as we can in such a wide hobby that there really is no wrong way to do something. 

      But on the matter of things having wierd angles and cut's we have refined out mold making and our printing knowing these things going forward to help and avoid such hardships! Hopefully this helps with your concerns! If you need anything else don't be afraid to tag me everywhere: FB, Discord, Insta, Twitter, forums, reddit. :)

My memory (dodgy thing it is at times) says that the plan was to produce a Dark Maiden figure head. They anticipated using the original concept art as reference and the two existing sculpts as masters to scan. The ( hoped for ) resulting figure head would be sized comparably to the seahorse or the bonny pirate lass. That is: in-between the sizes of the previously created Dark Maidens.  But some magic Z-brush re-sculpting and ship fitting will need to happen in-between.

 

Not a quote ^^^^^ that is just my summation. Subject to change.

 

 

Clearly labeled speculation on my part:  There is an opportunity here to sculpt the Dark Maiden in her un-wrecked form. Remember: the extant sculpts are of a Dark Angel (Avenging Angel?) figurehead whose wings have been magically reformed from wrecked/salvaged timbers from the original ship. Maybe Ron will choose to show her as she was before the ship became a ghost ship ??? [/CLSOMP]

 

Any thoughts on that @Reaper Ron ?

I know of three confirmed figure heads. hippocampus, duel pistol captain, and the reaper. 

the 4th is a topic of discussion. If anything happens it will be announced in the Kick-starter updates section. :)

Not much Bones 5 related stuff in tonight's Reaper Live.

 

Next week they should have a 3D print of the Pirate Ship to show (on Friday, it sounded like).

 

As of right now the ship is only confirmed to come in two colors:  Bones Black and Glow-in-the-Dark.  Ron seemed very iffy on there being a clear one at this point.

I thought he made it clear that there would only be the two versions.

 

My own feeling is that the glow one isn’t a good idea and I hope the sample materials they receive make them realize that and bring out a translucent instead.

You're right.  Looking back I didn't place enough emphasis on the veeeeeeery iffy party.  I agree, it sounds very much like they are only going with two colors.

 

The secondary color doesn't much matter to me, as I'm planning to get the regular Bones Black version, but I know it will matter to others.

 

Oh, one other tidbit that Ed mentioned.  The secondary color(s), be they glow in the dark, or something else, will ONLY be available in the Kickstarter Pledge Manager.  The regular Bones Black model will be the only one headed to retail.

      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.
