Hypothetically speaking...Can a ghost paint?

Asking for a friend..

well, At least i will be in good company as i wander the earth for eternity.  Come to think of it, that could be not a bad gig:  group of mini painters die with unfinished minis and spend the rest of eternity hanging out at game stores using other peoples dice rolls to play RPGs with each other.  When you get bored playing, you can scare the living bejeezus out of the players for not rolling right

Grow in the dark sounds terrifying for something already so large.

 

😄

 

Is this another of those 'dont feed it after midnight' things?  becuase i am definitely feeding it after midnight...

 

Actually my plan is to try surface painting the ship and leaving the cracks and crevices unpainted so it will hopefully glow through the cracks of a (hopefully) dark ship!

Nope, can’t do it. 
 

This is a family-friendly place, after all. 😝

Every day i find myself waiting for the big post.  Cmon.... cmon....

 

It's going to be a few more weeks.  The show tonight got pre-empted by thunderstorms that knocked out power, but they did say they were waiting on a few more containers, and after those arrived there would still be a week or two of warehouse organization and set-up before fulfillment began.   No dates, no hard timeline yet.

Ok, So have I missed something?   I'm seeing a lot of discussion on shipping.  Have I missed something because I last heard Reaper was waiting for the last 2 containers.   Has there been an update on this since the last KS update?  Thanks all

Nothing new, they are waiting on more containers.

Just went through and counted, and I'm getting 785 minis from this KS. And that's counting each ship(both normal and GITD) as a single mini. (Would've counted the cannons separately, but I've no idea how many cannons we ended up getting for these.)

 

Looks like I'll be painting a lot this year!

I'm a little scared to count. But... I kinda need to lol. Sooo, cross posting from the other Bones V thread:

 

 

Does anyone have a list of each expansion/add-on/power up, with both backer prices and late backer prices? 

 

I'm only looking for a list of prices for the purchaseable units, not for individual miniatures in each group (since that list is already available).

I think they said 20 cannons. So, you’re getting 40!

Useful information from today's emailed update:

 

"Posted by Reaper Miniatures

Apr 16, 2021

View on Kickstarter

Hey Backers!

Not a lot of big news in the last two weeks, but a few small developments.

 

-Three more containers arrived this past week, two of which contained most of the Pirate Ship models for USA fulfillment. This thing is HUGE and you guys are going to love it!

 

-The third container was filled with various Options from Bones 5, including Aganzarax, Valfuryx, the War Mammoth, and most of the Extras from the Core Set.

 

-We're still expecting at least two more containers, these filled with Ghost Pirate Ships, the remaining Options, and some various odds and ends such as the packaging material for the Learn to Paint Kit for Bones 5.

 

-Containers to our UK and AU hubs are on the way; we do not have an ETA at these warehouses yet. We expect that by our next update we'll have more solid information concerning our AU and UK shipments."

Despite the VAT issue for non-USA backers, Reaper’s delivery timeline is really syncing up this go around.

 

I juxtapose this against the litany of delays and excuses I get from other Kickstarter projects. 
 

I like getting good news. ::D:

How many times can i hit refresh to see if today is the day?  I know, i know, be patient.  It's like xmas eve and knowing that's a new bike in the big box.  It's like getting through the wedding to get to the excitement of wedding night.   It's like getting ready for an ACDC concert knowing it's going to blow you away!  It's like... 

 

C'mon containers!  I can hardly contain my enthusiasm levels in this thread.  I might spill into others soon.

Makes me wonder if the people who drive the trucks have any notion of just how excited adults get for little plastic toys of imaginary creatures...if they did, it might make them drive a little faster!

      Another “large collection of miniatures” kickstarters, reminiscent of the recent Blacklist Games Fantasy kickstarters.

      I am tempted, even though it covers a lot of things we already have.

      Pixies, Wyrms, Demonicity – Three Mini Role-Playing Games
       
      Three ready-for-adventure mini-game boxed sets for your RPG game night, featuring the Tri-Stat System used in BESM Fourth Edition RPG.
       

       
      If you're looking for role-playing games that are concise enough to crack open and start playing right away, yet sufficiently robust and evocative to support longer campaign play as well, you've come to the right place.
       
       
      Welcome to the Kickstarter for the first three Tri-Stat System Mini-Game Boxed Sets – a new line of compact and complete role-playing adventure games that are compatible with Dyskami Publishing's flagship BESM Fourth Edition anime and manga RPG. Tri-Stat System creator Mark MacKinnon has distilled and customised the complete system into distinct streamlined versions for each of the three adventure games – targeting their specific genres and background settings in easy-to-understand boxed sets.
       
      Pixies, Wyrms, and Demonicity – it's time for your next great role-playing adventure!
       

       
      Pixies, Wyrms, and Demonicity – These boxed set RPGs are games of adventure, exploration, battle, heroism, romance, and imagination. Yet unlike in a traditional board game, the possibilities for exploration and action in these role-playing game are endless.
       
      Each of the three role-playing adventure games contains the following components:
       
      a 32-page full-colour rulebook that gives your group everything you need to play, with sections on character abilities, magical spells/paranormal powers, weapons and equipment, enemy encounters, items and equipment, and guidelines for integrating the Tri-Stat System game with the compatible BESM Fourth Edition RPG
      6 brief story scenarios so you can start playing adventures right away
      6 pre-generated player character sheet handouts, with game stats and illustration
      4 custom-etched dice specific to that boxed set
       
      You can pledge for one, two, or all three of these boxed sets during the Kickstarter.
       
      ...
       
      I know know nothing about these creators or the system, but I decided to back for Pixies entirely because of that picture of the corgi. 👀
