Ed just posted a comment on the KS with the latest status.   They are hoping to get more information on the container on Tuesday.

It would be a good idea to actually hire a dedicated Kickstarter person. With this KS still in play (and I would assume a bones 6 this fall) and another one the way, it would be better to have someone JUST doing that job, rather then adding it to someone else's plate. What if, say, that person got sick, retired or went to another company, it would be far easier replacing a single job person versus a multiple job person. just a thought.

@Sirithiliel you are one of the nicest folks on this forum. We are just worried about a friend we have who is fighting discouragement. I know I am so looking forward to meeting you at Rcon.

 

i wont' be there this year sadly, but hopefully next year. itll be the first one i have missed in many years

 

anyways thanks for the kind words guys. i just havent had much to be happy about so far this year, well really so far since 2020, so this was just yet another disappointing blow

As you have mentioned before, Reaper needs a Communications Manager. I do think they've improved since Bones IV, but there are aspects that are still lacking and all of it would be easier for everyone if they had a dedicated Communications employee.

2020 can go blow chunks.

I thought the same thing at first too.

 

Seeing some of the new pics of the sets people received makes happy I can get a second chance to grab some of them. I skipped most of the "encounter" series (Dwarf King crypt, Gallowgard, Mandupar Pass), but they're growing on me.

I think many of us were aiming for July 5th thinking it would be back up.  I'm sure Reaper was like,  "wow! Did anyone else see how many people logged into the Pledge Manager this morning?"  In honestly curious how many did. 

 

Excited to throw more of my money at you, Reaper.  Darn you and your influence on my wallet!

I know I logged in.

 

I mean...I've got enough, more than enough--likely, but I never did pull the trigger on a few items.  And, frankly, I'm curious to know what they're going to turn back on.

Just to help manage expectations, please remember that many businesses are closed today in observance of the Fourth of July holiday; Reaper is one of them. The absolute earliest I would expect the pledge manager to reopen would be tomorrow, July 6*.

 

*I do not work for Reaper, so please don't quote me on that. It is an educated guess on my part.

Remember todays a holiday for Reaper. It's the day we celebrate 28 days to the anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence. (The Declaration passed on July 4th but was not signed till August 2nd)

Wave 1, Backer #1 here! I’m in the EU so thankfully no missing containers, only problem is I’ll be out of town/country until the end of August…

 

I emailed Reaper and Kit from the UK hub said they’ll hold my package until I come back! So generous of them!

 

But now I have to wait another couple months… my own fault for traveling for work hah!

I am Backer #4 in Wave 1 with one of nearly everything. Delayed for sure. Not sure for how long yet.

You will be at worst, order number 4 — out the door, the day after that container arrives.

Agreed.  Feels like this has been a regularly made comment too since the main force behind such retired at the end of Bones IV.

Time for another picture….

 

BF4250D7-A97D-4464-A5AF-3EBBCD0A30DB.thumb.jpeg.25cc6637a1376821694068ac08903e6e.jpeg

A size comparison with Graeco-Golem, a WOTC Iron Golem, and Cerberus. 

The grid this time is one inch squares (…Fiskars and them sewing hobbyists have copied WOTC !!)

Cerby is on a circle base that fits 3x3 squares — 76mm diameter.

Graeco-golem is on a 2x2 area — 50mm circle. 

Iron golem from WOTC is on a 40mm round. 

 

 

For @Cyradis Updated assembly list:

Ballista: not assembled

Shadow Dragon: not assembled

Trebuchet: not assembled

Fire Giant: not assembled

Nemean Lion: ASSEMBLED

Graeco Bronze Golem: ASSEMBLED

Henchmen: ASSEMBLED / single piece models

Cerberus, Pegasus, and Gryphon from the Greek set: not assembled.

 

 

Who asked a question about assembled minis and painting,

(that I cannot quote for reference because the forum keeps thwarting me,)

so far, the assembled ones are not a problem for painting. Whoever was deciding assembled/or not has made the same decision I would have.

So Kudos to whoever that was.

 

 

However, I did not order cannons.

I have seen some pix of the ships cannon on facebook. 

Can't confirm, but based on what I have seen, the whole cannon down to the wheels is all one piece.

Worst possible option; massive blunder, IMO, if that is so.

      I skipped on the last gnome one, but the whimsical fancifulness of this one has got me hooked.

      More villagers for your town!
       
      Many of these poses are unique and, afaik, unavailable elsewhere.
       
      All In Pledge shows all sets available in this KS. Sets and smaller bundlers are available, and sets from the previous Villagers KS are available now from the creator's website.

      Another one from Crippled God Foundry, focusing on ruined terrain (with non-ruins as a future stretch goal) and more creepy Undead and graveyard dwellers.

      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/crippledgodfoundry/ruins-of-hollow-hills/description

      All the buildings, scenery and miniatures from this campaign are designed for tabletop role play, skirmish games, wargames of 28-32 miniature scale or for use with your scale model projects!
       All the Buildings, Scenery & Miniatures from this Campaign are 3D PRINTABLE FILES ONLY!
      This means that you have to print the miniatures in a Resin or FDM 3D Printer .
       
      In the picture below you can see all the buildings, terrain pieces & miniatures included in the Core Set:



      They also have add-ons with STLs from their previous projects as well as their ended Monstrober promotions.
