Reaper Bones 5: Enthusiasm and Commentary thread

Recommended Posts

Honestly, I have two university email accounts, actually I think three (one departmental, two schoolwide), one junk gmail, one general use gmail, and one gmail that connects to my LinkedIn. And my dad still maintains the family email server, which has two addresses of mine that I no longer use.

 

It is so easy to just make a new Gmail account that the "new account" thing isn't that difficult.

The difficulty comes later when one tries to remember who was given what email and trying to check them all and manage them all . . . It can snowball.

This little guys doesn’t get much attention with all the bigger guys in the Kickstarter, but he really is a detailed little beauty.

Yeah I like him/her. Dungeon Dwellers had a lot of nice figures, but no real capstone. It was a little lacking when compared to the other expansions. 

There were a lot of dead sharks in this KS. The sea giant has one, there is one in the raft and there is one hanging ready to be skinned.  Based on where the Sea Giant dead shark. connects, it should be easy enough to take it and use it in a guard dog diorama. Combine it withe some precise cutting on the hanging shark and you should be able to create a diorama of two sharks being used as guard dogs, taken for a walk or being a Shark King (look up rat king).

This was posted to the discord today, apparently from Reaper UK’s Instagram.

And also on their FB page! Very happy to see that UK has gotten their final container and will start shipping next week, as that's where mine will be shipped from. 😄

Is there a list of what’s in the 5.5 Pledge Manager somewhere? I know it’s unenterprising of me, but I would rather know whether I even want to consider it before setting up a second account…

Remember, these are NOT leftover stock that are being sold from the factory, these are preorders that will be ordered from the factory in China by Reaper at the time that the 5.5 pledge manager closes (around 85 days from now) and then will be shipped around 90 days after that order has been placed (some time in 2022). Reaper does NOT expect that anything will be turned off before the 5.5 pm closes so just make sure you get your order in before it closes because this is your last chance to pick these figures up at much lower than retail prices. They have never done this before, in the past you would be waiting until retail and sometimes it can take literally years for everything from the kickstarters to make it to retail.

Items that were left out of the 5.5 pledge manager either did not sell well enough during the kickstarter to justify a kickstarter (non-retail packaged) version of the item to be ordered (this does not necessarily mean that the figure will never be available, as the molds are already made) OR it may be an item that did sell well but is expected to go to retail soon (TM).

What odds on the final container gets to Reaper today?


Almost nil. It’s scheduled to get to Dallas today. I’m betting it gets to Reaper on Monday.

I am surprised the Bones 5 Learn to Paint Kit did not make the list for B5.5  given all the miniatures you get and the paints it seemed like a nice gift.  I know I purchased 3 for gifts for my nieces and nephews.

 

The LTPK is a logistical headache to assemble. Random mini’s from the Core set (who knows if they are all on the same mould or not), paints made and bottled in Denton, instructions printed who-knows-where. 
 

If reaper can be convinced to add the LTPK to the 5.5 PM, I’m betting it’ll be a lesser deal, in a bag, only paints and instructions, but no mini’s.

Therein lies one of the biggest hurdles for me.  Small problems become massive ones in rather short order, and it becomes a rather annoyingly large ball of stress in no time.

      They took a long time to come live with this one.......
       
      like their other one (Sombras) Reina Roja has chosen an artist with some just askew of normal surreal artwork to draw from.    His insta is here Gary Villarreal
       
      Looks like the only complaints on their previous KS (Sombras) were shipping delays and people who didn't seem to understand that they were ordering multipart resin models and were determined to kick up a storm about how this wasn't what they thought they were ordering.

      Hello folks! AngerSmash will be launching in Kickstarter on September 15, 2021 and you may now follow the project with this pre-launch link: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/uncreatedspace/angersmash-a-game-making-fun-of-your-anger 
       
      But before launching on Kickstarter, I wanted to get some pre-feedback on the game box design that we've come up so far. Please refer to the photo below. We'd love to hear your thoughts! Thank you so much! 🙂 
       
       
       
      (August 27) Edit: Just finished reading the guidelines, so far I think I might not be violating any rules, except for the gif photo that I've posted here which I've taken down and replaced with a non-moving png 🙂 If I did misunderstand the guidelines please let me know so that I don't do this again. Thank you so much!

      Hello folks! I'm not sure if this post is allowed and if it's not, I can remove it right away. 🙂 
       
      Just wanted to ask for feedback on the box design of a game that I'm currently developing. Hoping to hear from y'all, most of you guys are pretty experienced in board/card games. Thanks so much! 🙂 
       
      Gonna leave the Kickstarter project page link here as well as the Instagram link

      Given I have a few unplayed games sitting on my shelf, my will save has gotten pretty high on these.

      A whole bunch of resin, or you can pick up a full set of Kimera Kolors.
