Reaper Bones 5: Enthusiasm and Commentary thread

The encounters are really good, and I hope that those become more prevalent in later Bones editions. Heck, even just more terrain of that sort to start up dioramas would be nice.

 

I'll be in the delayed batch; got the humanoid busts and a lot of middle-finger power ups.

I think Shavynra was my only named possible holdup; but I'm wave 1 so maybe all right if they've got half of them or whatnot?

 

 

...I'm actually not sure how I wound up getting a Shavynra but not the black dragon. Hmm. If I get anything on the reopen it'll probably be one of those.

Perhaps!

 

I think I probably got one and then cooled off on buying stuff before I got the other, as I'm prone to doing. But I placed three separate orders and it still doesn't explain why I didn't get the black, which was such a great sculpt and is my favorite dragon type. Maybe I'd picked up a WizKids black dragon and decided that was enough? I dunno. Oh, well. Second chance, here I come.

ah shoot i did order Shavynra, guess we'll see if that affects me


I ordered three Shavynra models, and am in Wave 3. Here’s hoping they’ve already got enough in to last thru the arrival of the final container.

Looking at the Rewards tab on KS, there are 7,998 backers in the first 8 Americas/EU $120 waves. After Wave 8 there isn’t always a Wave number at the $120 level (Waves 9 & 10 only exist as a $1 level, while there is a $120 Wave 11, Wave 12, 14, and 15), but around a third of them are, and most are maxed out or close to it. 
 

Granted, earlier wave backers are more likely to order more stuff, but I vaguely recall Ron mentioning Shavynra was the most-purchased dragon in the PM (I think?). But just looking at the numbers of ‘high level’ backers, you’re at Wave 6 before you even reach the halfway point of Americas/EU backer numbers. With any luck, they have enough in the warehouse to get through the first week. After that, the container should surely have arrived. 🤞🏻

There is a certain poetic justice that the "FU" gesture figure is one of those that will cause the delay.   Literally giving the middle finger to the backers who ordered it. :devil:

I don’t think the disapproving hand was ever mentioned as being late. Still, funny theoretical situation.

I may have misinterpreted what was missing from the Power Ups. If not, then awesome! Still delayed due to the humanoid busts though. I think I'm.... wave 3? Early but not 1st.

Sorry, I should learn not to "assume". ::):    But, don't ever let the facts get in the way a good punch line! :lol:

Update from tonight’s Reaper Live; the container that arrived today was largely Bones retail restocks, but did also contain Nathavarr dragon power-ups for Bones 5.  Ed said Nathavarr was in the bulk of the orders that would have been held up. 
 

Still waiting on GitD Pirate Ships, modern/campground scenics power-up, and the three humanoid busts add-on. Also the second portion of the Shavynra stock for Bones 5 fulfillment. 

I included Nathavar and two Shvyrna in my pledge but am in Wave 1. I think it's time I make room for the new residence of the shelves in my game room!

      I have a few preview gnomes on my painting workbench. They are great! Small, simple, metal, easy to paint, but full of personality. [/unsolicited review]

      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.
