Reaper Bones 5: Enthusiasm and Commentary thread

Recommended Posts

Oh wow. That's a great figure! Loads of options to go all out on those scales with prestigious paint ideas.

This will be a tough one to figure out which one of us gets to paint this :D

Looks like a Merqueen did sneak into Dark Depths

That set keeps on looking better and better.

Also, can't remember if this was mentioned: 

 25_54be8a7a-b4ec-47ef-a75a-ac6a02e54e46.
Yep he is in translucent grey.

Furthermore: the Shadows of Ravenhome encounter got close ups. This mini looks so interesting.

I really liked that set, but wow there are a surprising amount of Vampiresses in Bones V now that I think about it.  This set, Dungeon Dwellers has one, Fan Favorites another.   There's already a few from previous KS, too.  I guess it will just be one of those less common monsters that has a ton of variety in Bones (I guess they could be Spawn, though)

Yikes, I didn’t want that shadow dragon before and he’s just shot to the top of my, “def need that figures”. 
 

I swore I would stop when I finalized the pledge manager.

We're getting closer en closer to finalization. This leaves me wondering with the shipping part with the EU site.

My pledge manager is calculating $15,- in shipping, take or leave.

I would be amazed if that was to be the whole shipping with my $850 order. But I would love to be amazed! :p 

 

Have they mentioned somewhere what is to be expected in shipping and VAT for the EU site?

I was definitely getting them with the intent of using them as vampire spawn.  I appreciate the inclusion of the more feral winged ones as well.  Bones has plenty of top-dog vamps but not a lot of murder-fodder.

This is actually something I worry about.

With the Brexit coming it could mean paying VAT twice?

I've asked before but no reply.

For me, eventhough I love Reaper minis and this KS it will probably be the last time I will back.

The word "ouch" comes to mind, as I barely have anything in my box and I'm already easily close to $25...

Is it going to be a bad hit even from the UK hub? Unfortunately, brexit, like most things is something no one knows what will happen. It would be nice if Reaper could give an answer, but the world is in such turmoil, I fear even getting the stuff out of China with the way things are going:(

Earlier they made the  right plans to secure a second hub in Europe. I believe Germany was mentioned, but that may as well be an estimate from someone.

As time has passed for the plans to be thought out, a hint of these plans would be great to hear. Nothing set in stone, but just the knowledge it's being worked on would be something.

@Reaper_Jon I don't suppose you could find something out?

I'm very much still expecting VAT to be put on later, or more shipping once things finalize.

I'd rather have it like you have it, to be known upfront what you can calculate.

The thing is, when Reaper built the HUB in the UK, the UK was part of the EU.

They won't be by the time Reaper delivers.

This could mean, having to pay VAT one time for shipping to the UK and then paying a SECOND time VAT for shipping to the EU from the UK which is by then also Non-EU.

It is still unclear.

 

If this happens then it is no longer profitable to back a KS like this for me.

I don't really fear a double VAT. We know they were busy with another EU hub. If double VAT would be a risk at that time, I imagine they would let it be shipped to, and from, that other EU hub they mentioned.

I would just like to be reassured, and a bit updated, on that process. Did the other EU hub become a fact? Is there a risk involved?

If someone would tell me it's there, it's in Germany and they are still looking into the shipping costs and VAT, and wait to see what UK has done by the time of shipping, then I'm happy. Sure there are uncertainties, but some updates would be cool.

I caught the last few minutes of tonight's Reaper live, the one thing I got was that they would REALLY, REALLY, REALLY like you to finalize your pledges ASAP.

Pledge manager still closes December 1, but finalizing sooner is definitely better.

A few updates (or lack of updates) from tonight's Reaper Live.

 

1. Reaper submitted the final numbers to the factory today.  So it is imperative you close out your initial pledges.  You can always make more orders up until December 1st, but run the risk of them running out and not being able to fulfill what you ordered closer to Dec 1st.  (In which case they will either substitute, or provide you with a Reaper gift certificate for the eventual MSRP for when the model is released to retail).

 

2. I asked about the Brexit/EU Hub situation, mentioning people were waiting for an update/confirmation of a German hub, and Dave gave this response in the chat:

3.  Reminder that Sept and Oct will have Bones 5 updates on second and fourth Fridays, so there should be a Bones 5 Live and a KS update tomorrow.

      Here's a kickstarter that I thought looked particularly cool - they're flat-based tiles with magnets that can be reconfigured anyway you want. The video in particular looks pretty cool. Already completely funded. Prices are a bit high and ultimately the system's not for me, but I thought perhaps some others might be interested. :)

      Story
      The Death Knight Rises
      To me there's only one true fallen paladin who, deceived by the darkest forces, broke his oath and became a paragon of hatred and terror. But, I am into classic TTRPGs, so I wanted to rethink the concept. Boris Woloszyn, amazing sculptor that he is, took over and has transformed this idea into a remarkable sets of miniatures.
        The Miniatures
      There are only two. The Minion is 32mm scale and the Fallen Paladin measures 40mm to the top of his head.They will get cast in the crispest of resins. They come unassembled and without bases. 
        The Paladin - doing a gentle spin
       PLAY The Minions
      The Pledge Levels
      There are two. Ones comes with only the Death Knight, the other comes with the Death Knight and two minions.
      The price for only the Death Knight is 15CA$, the set with 1 Death Knight and 2 minions is 35CA$ (less than 30US$). 
      Backerkit will charge max. 14CA$ for postage on top of that.
        Stretch Goals
      We have one and I will unlock it if we reach 10K.
        Add-On's
      We will open a backer kit pledge manager for those that want some extra minis, and we make sure to drop all the suitable Boris stuff in there too.
       
      I want to give you a little preview what to expect in terms of add-on's.
       
      There will be this well known lot sculpted by Boris. 10C$ each. (In case you want to top up to find out what 10K will bring)
      And there will be some 3D printed things (20 Microns, they paint like casts).
       
      1. This lad and his little buddy, because dwarves and gobbos. 8CA$
      2. 3 Halflings on a rampage. 2 female 1 male, because. Also - kettle jump pack. The pacK of 3 plus 2 steam bases will be 20 C$
      I still have more to throw into the mix, but I need to re-watch that episode now.  
       
      Thanks again!

      I'm about to get a new kickstarter running. I like this one a lot. Really easy to paint and make it look good. You'll need a 3d printer which are coming down severely in price lately for good quality ones.
      This particular set of ruins has an arch theme to it. Images show all unique pieces except for the bridges which have duplicates.
      And the prelaunch link. Due to start Tuesday 8th December https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1173449368/ruins-of-generica
