Reaper Bones 5: Enthusiasm and Commentary thread


Recommended Posts

It is okay to be frustrated by delays. It isn't okay to be a goremaw about it. :)

 

I've decided that goremaw should be the forum euphemism for an insult describing a thing that looks similar to a purple worm.

Yes, absolutely.  Being frustrated with the situation is entirely reasonable and, as you duly point out, there is a difference between having said frustration and taking things outside of Reaper's control out on employees or representatives.  So long as people are being reasonable enough, you are not required to wear a smiley face at all times.   Happiness is certainly the desired goal, but we don't impose it as a mandatory condition.

Did....did you just disparage the greatest miniature Reaper has ever made?...

How dare you!

Admittedly, I’m a little nervous. It’s my first Bones KS and I guess I will be a little overwhelmed to find some 500 minis waiting for me in several huge boxes when I come home some day soon.

I know Reaper is doing the very best in a global catastrophe, and we'll have our minis soon enough, but the cult of toxic positivity (mostly on Facebook) doesn't seem particularly productive.

 

Like, it's okay to be a little frustrated that you want your KS order that was estimated originally for April.  It's okay to be a little antsy about that. Obviously don't take it out on Reaper or their employees (because again, they're working hard to make this right) but stuff like "I have 956,403 minis so I don't need it anytime soon" isn't really the comfort some of y'all think it is.  In fact, in anticipation of the KS arriving, I'm personally nearly caught up now, and it's kinda pompous and presumptuous to assume that everyone else is also in the same position.

 

Idk, don't mean to complain here, and I know it won't get the containers in faster.  But it's okay to be a little frustrated, is all.

 

Totally get that, it's never nice to have your genuine concerns or frustrations dismissed or labelled as whining simply because other people are more enthusiastic or hyped.

Unfortunately, Facebook groups tend to lean more towards the "Fanboy" side.

You mean the goblin doesn't subscribe to the idea of "the floggings will continue until morale improves"?

TBF, I wasn't speaking for anyone else or saying their anxious feelings were irrational or offering comfort.   I was explaining my basis for why I'm not overly concerned about the delivery of Reaper's KS.  Just speaking about me.  Not about anyone else.  Let's keep the straw golem off the table.

 

A couple of months late on KS delivery is pretty common with KS.  I've had some KS turn out to be frauds, some only partially deliver.  Reaper's communications has been awesome on all their kickstarters.  They may be late, but I know where they are.

@mikem91 I realize that my post having immediately followed yours might've made it seem like I was targeting you, but tbh I'm not sure I'd even read yours at the time.  Just funky timing, I assume, but I definitely wasn't trying to call you out or anything.  Cheers.

 

Honestly, thanks for both the commiseration and words of encouragement, everyone.  I'm sure we'll see it soon, and I'm excited for when that happens!  And of course, I'm at the stage of moving when this is most awkward (still awaiting for final approval, so I'm not ready to list it as our new address yet)... so no doubt that's adding to the stress.

As long as kickstarter backers get their stuff before retail I don't really care which country is first or last (given that I am in Australia that is a good thing). 

Now, I wonder how the tax situation is going to go in Europe. That is something that interests me more, even if it doesn't affect me.

We're going to pay the taxes. The people talking about new deals/trade deals with the UK seem to miss the point that it's about items produced in the UK/EU, there might be exemptions for those. But even with that exemption, you're going to pay the normal consumer tax (19-20% depending on country), you might just get around a bit of duty fees. I just hope they'll let my package through without too much hassle.

Floggings are their own source of joy, independent of any objective.

Yep. And paying taxes is normal, the import fee is the thing different about this one, and that'll depend per country on their rules and such :) I'm eagerly awaiting here, with an estimate of what it'll cost, but no certainty in anything.
We'll see when we'll see, I hope it'll be within a month getting to my front door :)

Oh trust me, it's going to be ONE BIG BOX! My last KS, my 4 year old (now 7) was able to fit in the box with room to spare:) I believe @Cyradisactually fit into hers:)

I could curl up in it with my back and shoulders sticking out, yep. Guessing Bones V may be similar.

My Son's Bachelor party is on the second weekend of July.  It is a campaign I am running for him featuring kobold pirates.  With my luck I'll get the ship the Monday after the party.

      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.

      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.
