As a matter of interest, does anybody have a full list of previous bones items that didn't make it to retail. I remember seeing a list somewhere for Bones 1 (had some noseless person if I remember correctly) but haven't seen siad list ofr other Bones KS.


 

The Weapons Sprues (Bones 3?), and it seems unlikely Dance of Death from Bones 4 will ever make retail given its problems.

Hooray! Despatch notice received last night and predicted arrival is Monday.

 

I honestly have not set up a campbed by the letterbox... yet.

 

You might want to stay near that letterbox, I was supposed to receive my Box o' Bones on Monday too, but I just got an email saying that it was out for delivery ::o:

I have pretty much lost hope that  they will ever release the weapons sprues (a shame really, they were useful), guess I'll just have to get some 3D ones and print those out. @Reaper_Joncan you verify the status on the weapons? Has reaper decided not to release due to packaging issues? I think we'd all buy them, even if they were website only and just thrown in a zip lock baggie.

I'm very glad to hear that you folks in the UK are getting your loot. 

 

I want pictures of letterbox campsites, though. ::D:

 

 I clicked on the link to the last post on the bottom of the page and started scrolling up from there... I got to this post with no knowlwdge of what you guys were talking about, read "letterbox campsites" and started picturing people building dioramas in cardboard boxes, lol.

Now I'm actually kind of disappointed...

It is okay to be frustrated by delays. It isn't okay to be a goremaw about it. :)

 

I've decided that goremaw should be the forum euphemism for an insult describing a thing that looks similar to a purple worm.

Purple

Grump's Goremaw is deep red. ::D:

/Purple

 

I couldn't resist. :devil:

Our giant box of Bones arrived yesterday, along with my Signum Kickstarter. Not sure what the odds are of that, but I'm certainly going to be busy checking and cataloguing for the next few days! Many cat photos will be taken, but here's a quick one of the two miscreants sitting happily on their new real estate.

Well, you can begin inventory once you convince them to give up their new perch.::P:

 

Well, we're just back from IKEA so we're hoping that one of the many boxes that we bought will prove to be a suitable distraction!

From Bones 4, according to my records we haven't seen hit retail yet:

Baba Yaga

Gauth

Narglauth (and Rauthuros)

the Dragon Turtle

Agramon, Duke of Hell

Blacksting the Wyvern

the Thunderfoot Behemoth and Blacktooth Terror

Dance of Death

Mossbeard the Treeman

the Skeletal Dragon

Nyarlathotep

Argent

the Stygian Barge

 

Pretty much all big addons that will need custom packaging.  Also, I wonder a bit about how hard that stuff is to move (in a retail sense).  The big boxed kits take up a lot of real estate in game stores, and most of those don't seem to be devoting a lot of space to stocks of minis.  And then Reaper has to share that space with Wizkids and Games Workshop.  I kinda wonder if the big items are more loss leaders to get people into the Kickstarters, but only folks with access to Reaper's financials would know for sure. 😛

      This is funded with 10 days left to go. There are busts, 75mm, 38mm and a couple of kickstarter exclusives.
       
      Miniature's Den is currently painting the female bust and will be working on a few more pieces on his twitch streams: https://www.twitch.tv/miniaturesden

      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]

      Another “large collection of miniatures” kickstarters, reminiscent of the recent Blacklist Games Fantasy kickstarters.

      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/nextlevelminiatures/next-level-miniatures-dragons-hoard-miniatures-vol-1/

      I am tempted, even though it covers a lot of things we already have.

      Right on the heels of their last shipped campaign, Midlam Miniatures is back. After several years of halflings, the gnomes are back!

      Also available in different pledge combos, two of the older campaigns:
       
      I already own this one from 2018 (Common - Garden Gnomes):
