Reaper Bones 5: Enthusiasm and Commentary thread


Recommended Posts

I'm in no rush for my package, even though it will have new paints in it.  I can wait a bit, even past the May long weekend when I know the paint will pretty much make it without issue...

something i drew many many many years ago   seems fitting

I totally agree with you in that those particular exaggerations are not very realistic in function. This was a challenging character/figure to create because I wanted her to read as feminine but als

At least up here in Canada we're at the point in the year where it's unlikely that our paint will freeze.

 

Can't wait to receive my Bones  Four Five package!

Yeah, we're now at the point where odds are in your favour, but it's still technically gambling because we all know third winter is lying in wait for us to lower our guard...

C'mon Bones 5... we've got to be close to packing and shipping...

 

They pretty much showed the stage it is in on Reaper Live. There were videos. Process is similar to last time.

I believe it looks like this:

  • Receive Container
  • Unload container and scan contents
  • Inventory items received
  • Stack in warehouse in a orderly organized way
  • Wait on additional containers (if any)
  • Prepare order pulling and packing area
  • After all containers have arrived pull, pack, and ship a small batch to test the process
  • Refine process
  • Begin pulling and shipping

The last ReaperLive Stream showed them as far as the first four bullet points, for ††5 out of ___ containers:

  • Receive Container
  • Unload container and scan contents
  • Inventory items received
  • Stack in warehouse in a orderly organized way
  • Wait on additional containers (if any)  <=== they were here

 

††Or, 3 out of 5 not counting UK. See next post.

UK was still awaiting their 1st container

Thanks for the info! As for the number of containers, last written update they said there were only five containers expected. (They had received 3 out of 5 at the time of the update.)

 

So any potential other containers would be containers they wouldn't be expecting, I guess ..? So if they realize they haven't received everything after doing inventory, there might be another container on the way they didn't know about.

As if I have ever engaged in any sort of mischief in my entire life.  I am an absolute angle, wings n hulu n everything.


Where does absolute fall in comparison to obtuse and acute?

there was going to be five that day but only 3 showed up. when asked about the number of containers someone said it was in the double digits. (don't remember who said it)

I seem to recall someone saying 12 containers total, but I could be totally wrong. 

I think you’re right. I think they said that some containers are still waiting to be unloaded in California before making their way to Texas.

I know from practical experience that Reaper paints will survive anything warmer than -17o C.

And I know from practical experience that they won't.  I have several dead Reaper paint pots (which were refunded, or resent by Reaper), as well as two dead CAV ones (from KS3).  Once temperatures go below freezing, it's a risk.

I kinda hope this will deliver in June the earliest (at least for EU backers), since I'll move next month. But since we haven't heard anything on the ETA of those containers, I think I'm in the clear.

      I'm happy to see they've launched a 2nd KS, as I missed out on the first one.
      Here's the blurb from the Kickstarter, which is live and already funded here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/292543184/wallhalla-2/description
       
      Hey, everyone! We're Ill Gotten Games, and we're back for another round of Wallhalla, the modular, 3d printable miniature display shelves!
      We're kicking this new series off with a Dangerous Dungeon theme that comes in two available styles:

       Classic: (left) the original format found in Series 1, optimized for miniature display. Classic shelf units also include versions with recesses for standard round bases (20mm, 25mm, 32mm, 40mm, 50mm, 60mm, and 70mm).
       Wall Sprawl: a new, terrain-style take that lets you build vertical dungeons and play on your wall space! (It works great as a display as well, especially if you want even more of a diorama look.)
      Both of these sets are 100% compatible with one another and with any of the sets from Series 1. This campaign is for digital STL files, not finished, physical products, and you'll need access to a 3d printer to make them. All of our Wallhalla designs:
      print 100% support free and are optimized for FDM machines!
      assemble with durable, built-in slide-fit connectors, and don't require glue!
      can be configured (and reconfigured) into whatever build suits your fancy!
      are easy to paint!

      A new Kickstarter that may otherwise go under your radar.

      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/star-schlock-astros/star-schlock-astroguards-miniatures?ref=project_link

      Very entertaining 70’s/80’s nostalgia aesthetics.

      I barely received my last campaign pledge from Midlam that already it has something that caught my interest.
       
      Sisters of the Kraken Cult. The female counterparts of the previous "Onslaught of the Cult of the Kraken Lord" and "Cultists of the Kraken Lord". (I now have some regret of not getting it)
       

       
      What's also interesting is the optional add-on of fish folk.

       
      Brinewind is going to have some interesting neighbors.

      RPG Sidequest Decks
       
      Ending soon. Card decks, each with a side quest. Pretty straightforward.

      Been watching the previews for this on Bold's Instagram,  Some crazy cute models, this time sculpted by  Ismael Nieto.  I'm particularly fond of Bisa and Tori, the winners of the dino race, and the BatPacker is too cute.  Resin cast and STL like their last several releases.  I've picked up their STLs before and been very happy, Planning to try to swing for at least one in resin this time, though shipping from Sweden hurts.
