Thanks for telling me what's off.  Weirdly, i can't even subscribe or follow the updates for an email.  Wah wah.  

 

Good thing I've got you all updating things. @Inarahmade a solid post for me to follow, but did bum me out i didn't know until she said it.  Thank you, Inarah for calling it out with the details.  Good on you! 

 

I just repeat what is in the weekly Thursday night stream on Twitch.  You can subscribe to that and get notices when it goes live, and even go back and watch the weekly episode for details.

That would indeed be why. If you had backed on KS, you are automatically sent an email copy of every update (unless you shut that off in your KS settings).

In the 4th Kickstarter, they did send out emails through the mailing list.

Now, don't get too excited.  On this evening's Reaper Live they said they were notified that "a shipping container" has arrived on the west coast.  There is no other info at this time.  No confirmation that it it THE shipping container with the last of the KS stuff, and no expected delivery date. It could be in customs for weeks.  They do expect to have much more information for the KS update next week.

Even after they get it, it will still have to be unloaded and sorted. Then they’ll spend a day or two test processing a few orders. Then they’ll do 100, next day 300, then up to 600 per day. I’ve been through this 4 times before. Just don’t think about it ::D:

I must admit that I'm a little relieved.  At the beginning of the month, I was worried my order would arrive while I'm on vacation the first two weeks of June. 

 

That's not likely now.

I'm now in the position of trying to decide if I should change my address.  Will be moving into a new house come July.  Since the deals not closed, I'm hesitant to send it to the new address, and I don't really want to send it off to a relative's, though I may have to.

Eagerly anticipating my largest Bones haul to date!

The Reaper site’s preview page now shows the Bones 5 Rune Wights and Dragonfolk add-ons as coming to retail in June. 
 

These were two of some of the first things to sell out in the PM (I had actually wanted to get one more copy of each), so it’s nice they’ll be available soon. 
 

Assuming the figure two-packs retail at $5.99 (though as they’re supposed to be Bones Black, they might be $6.99), then they’ll cost just shy of $36 ($42). Given that in total they came to $20 in the pledge manager, I really wish I’d ordered another set of each in there <_<


It appears these have been pushed back to July on the preview page. Likely just a prudent business decision, given the delay on Bones 5 delivery. I can imagine the outrage if Reaper were to start selling Bones 5 stuff at retail before they start shipping out Bones 5 KS pledges.

@MoonglowMinistake no chances.  I'd send it to a friend or business you know will not be moving.  Id worry if you do move, and when got the change of address in, it might be the new address doesn't register with your name on the shipping carrier's system or something back office doesn't line up.  Send it to a friend or where you work.  

 

I'm still just pacing back and forth waiting for the "we shipping" announcement.  It's worse than the buildup to xmas morning when i was 5.  SOOO EXCITED!

I'm happily settled at my new place, so ready for my Bones. We even have substantially more wardrobe space, my existing miniatures look kinda lost.

Hopeful we'll hear an update on the UK container and it'll make it to the warehouse come June 5th as predicted.

Watching last night’s Reaper Live right now. Apparently the production company saw the last KS update, and contacted Reaper to clarify that they had caught the boat sagging issue before full-scale production, and thus the issue is already fixed in the production copies. This had been communicated to Reaper, but apparently got lost in the shuffle; reaper also didn’t realize the boat they had on hand wasn’t a 100% final production copy. Reaper was trying to be proactive to resolve the issue before delivery, and didn’t realize the issue had already been identified and solved. 
 

All that to say, there will be no need of a boat plug for the pirate ships. Ed was joking about what to do with the thousands of boat plugs they’ve already produced. :wacko:

Is it possible for them to melt the plastic and reuse it in future Bones USA sculpts?

At this point, they should just send them anyway. Because you know people are going to complain if they don't get their boat plugs. :devil:

They sold thousands of ships? 
Really?

 

 

Also: since no one cares or can be bothered to learn the names of things; the real, honest-to-god, a heavy piece of structure meant to hold a mast on a ship actually has a name...

      Anthropomorphic animals are not really my cup of tea, but these look nicely done.  I imagine someone here will be interested.

      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.

      DCC Dying Earth
       
      A DCC RPG boxed set, officially licensed by the estate of Jack Vance. Adventure with IOUN Stones and The Excellent Prismatic Spray!
       





       
      Yikes, the resolution did not hold. I tried. Just click the link lol.
       
       
      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.
