No. Don't encourage such behaviour. Its annoying if you can't get the kickstarter due to other reasons and waves are gone too fast. That is not even going into how Australia doesn't really have waves.

This would just annoy me. A better alternative would be giving a freebie for every wave that is filled. Would encourage people to be happy that more people are backing and not curse them as a wave based freebie would. Doesn't help with getting people to back early thought.

Did you read the post? If so you would have  see my conclusion..."Don't fix what isn't broken"  Further, I dismissed the idea of wave 1 as its ridiculous to try and even get in that early, But I believe a 72 Hour early bird  Freebie would encourage early pledging . But again,   Reaper doesn't need to do this.   

 

I actually like you idea. Though , if you think about it.... additional pledges means additional money... which means additional Stretch goals .... which means they actually sorta, kinda use that tactic already. But yes, I agree Reaper should add more minis  as pledges increase.

 

My apologies if I presented a  suggestion that annoyed you. I'm annoyed that I'm waiting for my rewards that  were implicated  promised to go to wave 1 first. My advice is what everyone is telling me, don't be upset  that other people are getting something you think you deserve.

And last time everyone got annoyed that CANADA WENT FIRST. But it meant that fulfillment went smoother for Reaper at that point, and getting things done easier makes everyone get their stuff smoother and faster.

 

The waves I think are meant as guidelines, not promises. Your early wave I think does mean that you will be earlier than later waves - within the group that is still waiting for items.

I agree 100%  Wave order is  not an explicit promise. Its implicit.  Which is why I used the word implicit. My group is the USA and up until a few ago My group was all waiting on ALL items.

Naturally, Reaper is going to do the most economical and quickest way possible to satisfy as many people as people.  AND I THINK THAT'S GREAT. I applaud the decision. But I'm also annoyed.

I don't think how Canadians pay taxes and fees or how its shipped to them was ever explicit. But I understand why they are annoyed. I don't  immediately discredit why they are annoyed.

So probably tomorrow for the pledge manager. There are a few things I didnt  get that now I want, such as fan favorites and henchmen and such. Anyone planning to add to their haul? I recommend the encounter sets.


The Bones 5.5 pledge manager is already open. The Henchmen are not in it, as they are coming to retail soon. 
 

Fan Favorites is there, however.

i don't THINK theere is anything else i want

 

i do admit to being slightly sad i didn't get that dwarf tomb encounter thing, mostly because the dwarves look very interesting to paint, but not sure i want it enough to buy more things when i don't have my first order yet 


The Dwarf King’s Crypt isn’t in the 5.5 PM either. Like the Henchmen, it is scheduled to come to retail soon. 
 

Everything that Reaper has mentioned in their twitch streams is coming to retail soon, and has shown off packaging and such, is not in the 5.5 pledge manager. Dragonfolk, rune wights, henchmen and henchwomen, dwarf kings crypt, Brinewind Extras, demonic legions (renamed blood demons for retail).

i really really hope we get our miniatures before they go to retail....

 

like, i can't even describe how annoyed i'd be if dragonfolk pop up in the retail store before i ever get my kickstarter pledge.....

You need to sign out, and then register a new pledge manager account with a different email address. And then...go nuts. 😆

That's a rather silly way of doing it in my mind.  Locking people's accounts and then telling them to just create another makes people like me go "oh, I guess I won't put more money into such then".

 

Makes it feel like communication isn't of importance.  Not everyone wants to have multiple email addresses for things, because that's how things get missed or not responded to in a timely manner...

I don't disagree. I happen to have a second email handy that I use frequently, but that's not the case for everyone.

 

I had a thought while typing this to see if the pledge manager recognizes <youremail>+<identifier>@provider.com as a separate email address. If it does, then that would still let you use the same email address for a second account. Going to go try it out now...

While I have several emails (about half a dozen, actually), they're all for separate things.  I even have a catch all called "oops".  But I prefer things to remain in their specific containers, because I expect things in certain areas, and either ignore or delete such in the others....

      Many of these poses are unique and, afaik, unavailable elsewhere.

      A small but creative series of Garden Gnome miniatures by sculptor Tom Mason. Search for his name in the Reaper figure finder and you'll see some of his other work.
       
      The Gnome Guard
       
      “The Gnome Guard” expands on the world of “The Adventures of Little Knife and Kronan” & ”The Goblin Menace” by introducing the stalwart guards of the garden.
       
      One of the world’s most timeless lawn decorations can now come to life on your tabletop. Whether you need comparably adorable force to face off against other pint-sized foes, or you’re just obsessed with garden gnomes, these miniatures will make a great addition to any collection.
       
       
      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]
