Reaper Bones 5: Enthusiasm and Commentary thread


Recommended Posts

I got my smallish order today….dang that pirate ship is big. The hero kids are really nice. So far the only problem I have seen is that my pirate maid ships head has two left arms, soI will have to get some parts. I didn’t get the core pledge, just the Brinewind expansion and a handful of add ons.

Is there a sub-forum on this board to swap/trade figures?  There is a bunch from the core set I would like to swap for something else I rather paint.

 

While direct trades/selling is not allowed here, if you are on Facebook, there is a page "Buy/Sell Reaper Miniatures and other minis" that you could join to see about trading.

So why aren’t my spoiler tags working? Did they change that somehow?

If you see that eyeball icon, it will open a spoiler box for you that you can type in.  I don't know why you wouldn't be able to drop in photos as well.  I'm not sure how/if it works on mobile.

 

The tag option, as mentioned, seems to have gone away.  Which was a surprise to me!

Have you tried turning your device sideways? 

 

My Samsung/ Android tablet won't display the icon in portrait,  but does in landscape. 

 

YMMV.

That only works if you load the page in that orientation, and nobody holds their phone that way due to them being designed with rather wide screens for vertical scrolling (and easy one handed use).  Here's an example using Chrome, in Android 11, and just turning the phone...

No icon for such on an S20+.

There is one more tip I can give. There is a thing on this forum called the Box of Goodwill. It's basically a bigass box filled with miniatures that gets sent out to members. When it's your turn and you accept the package, the idea is to go through, take out mini's of your liking, and fill it with other miniatures that are collecting dust at your own shelves and could use a better home. Trying to keep the value of what you take out and put in about the same, then send it to the next person.

 

So it's not a direct trade, but more like a swap-box,  you won't know upfront what's inside. Could be ancient miniatures or new bones black stuff, could be non-reaper aswell.

It's quite fun to participate in!

Happy hopefully-UK-container-arrival-day! I'm really hoping they'll be able to ship from that hub next week and it'll be interesting to see how quickly they'll be able to pull orders compared to the more experienced US hub. And if they use waves at all.

Yeah. I've tried loading a page and I don't get any more icons than this and I can't see what I'm typing because if keyboard blocking everything. Lots of other things too like max 4 tags. Anyway, should stop this discussion.

Same! I got my airbrush some weeks ago after 5 days after ordering from the UK warehouse. I hope it's about the same for this delivery.

I'm gonna be on holidays from the 27th or so, I hope it'll arrive either before or after. I can't stand the thought of it waiting in a depot while I'm away.

Toronto here. Just got my UPS bill for over $100....so ~33% "tax" that Reaper just passed on to me without warning counter to previous kickstarters.

 

Case 1) They knew they were operating differently then the past and Canadians would have to pay this additional fee. In this case they should have said upfront. Shady Shady practice.

Case 2) This is a change they made recently....in which case that's complete nonsense. Shame on you.

 

I get that Canada is a small market, but this really sucks. At best Reaper is my "cheap minis for DnD that I'll use once" option. Kickstarter discount + 33% is far less persuasive as I can get higher quality sculpts / product locally for not much more. This poor turn of events has burned a lot of the good will I had with Reaper.

Not arguing against you at all.  Just saying Canada has 1338 backers, 2nd only to USA.. so I wouldn't say small market

      Pixies, Wyrms, Demonicity – Three Mini Role-Playing Games
       
      Three ready-for-adventure mini-game boxed sets for your RPG game night, featuring the Tri-Stat System used in BESM Fourth Edition RPG.
       

       
      If you're looking for role-playing games that are concise enough to crack open and start playing right away, yet sufficiently robust and evocative to support longer campaign play as well, you've come to the right place.
       
       
      Welcome to the Kickstarter for the first three Tri-Stat System Mini-Game Boxed Sets – a new line of compact and complete role-playing adventure games that are compatible with Dyskami Publishing's flagship BESM Fourth Edition anime and manga RPG. Tri-Stat System creator Mark MacKinnon has distilled and customised the complete system into distinct streamlined versions for each of the three adventure games – targeting their specific genres and background settings in easy-to-understand boxed sets.
       
      Pixies, Wyrms, and Demonicity – it's time for your next great role-playing adventure!
       

       
      Pixies, Wyrms, and Demonicity – These boxed set RPGs are games of adventure, exploration, battle, heroism, romance, and imagination. Yet unlike in a traditional board game, the possibilities for exploration and action in these role-playing game are endless.
       
      Each of the three role-playing adventure games contains the following components:
       
      a 32-page full-colour rulebook that gives your group everything you need to play, with sections on character abilities, magical spells/paranormal powers, weapons and equipment, enemy encounters, items and equipment, and guidelines for integrating the Tri-Stat System game with the compatible BESM Fourth Edition RPG
      6 brief story scenarios so you can start playing adventures right away
      6 pre-generated player character sheet handouts, with game stats and illustration
      4 custom-etched dice specific to that boxed set
       
      You can pledge for one, two, or all three of these boxed sets during the Kickstarter.
       
      ...
       
      I know know nothing about these creators or the system, but I decided to back for Pixies entirely because of that picture of the corgi. 👀
