Ooook a little update for the fellow EU mates (if someone is interested in it 😛 ).
Past yesterday I've received my package. Again Wave1, 450€ pledge (so in the middle).
Miracle number 1: I had to pay... nothing 😶.
Miracle number 2: Nothing is missing (thanks, @kit )
Miracle number 3: I've managed to dry-fit the big monsters/dragons etc. and everything fits like a glove.
Sooo yes! I'm quite happy 😅

 

That's amazing! I'm happy for you! 😄

#2, less of a miracle, but you're welcome.

 

#1, totally a miracle. Wow.

On the discord I hear things about the Dance of Death, Dragon Turtle, Skeletaon Dragon and more special big mini's that are going to be added to the 5.5 pledge manager.

More details are in the most recent Reaper Live, I haven't had time to see it myself, but there should be some more info on there.

 

Looks like these have now been added - Dance of Death, Skeletal Dragon, Blacksting, Mossbeard, Gauth, Nyarlathotep, Agramon, Narglauth, [EDIT: Dragon Turtle] and the other Bones V paint set. Maybe a couple more I've missed.

I saw the Dragon Turtle.

It would seem you got lucky in Spain.

 

Mrs. GG and I got a 50 Euro tax bill here in Germany.


The quality of the sculpts generally exceed our expectations and we will likely add some things in the Bones 5.5 pledge manager opportunity. However, some things are more warped than we expected. I am hoping I can sort these out with hot water. 
 

And I think the ship would play better if the hull walls were connected to the lower decks rather than the upper decks. However, modifying it to do that is beyond my current modeling skills.

 

Overall Mrs. GG and I are very pleased and look forward to Bones VI.

Is there a way to suggest them adding the weapon sprues from Bones III? As far as I've gathered from twitch those also have issues with being packaged properly for retail.

 

I'm kinda thinking about the GitD pirate ship these days. But I wouldn't want to keep it mostly clear and am hoping to see someone who mostly paints their GitD ship and just has the effect show through a little before I have to make the decision.

Since I can't seem too sign up using the + trick. I decide its not worth the effort and the temptation would pull me too much. I already made myself an undead army by mistake.

 

Dabbling in the Necromantic Arts are we?

The thing is that I did not choose necromancy. Necromancy chose me!
I started as a filthy elf lover, which amusing ended with me painting more skaven instead (damn you one of the best valued gw boxes). Then slowly over the years I amassed a collection of undead.  My forays into the necromantic arts started with one of the First Reaper Minis I brought. It was ELDESSA(SKU: 02986). Hidden, she started the process of raising forces.

Over the years Eldessa intentionally constructed an undead army for myself, whom was not conscious of the fact. Locked in a box she started building abominations after abominations.
Most of them I even painted! I have 97 painted undead themed miniatures and 25 unpainted! My second largest painted themed collection is probably ratmen/skaven (slightly less than half that). Neither of which I aimed for...  This is my biggest army and I blame Reaper, it is even in their name! (even thought they do not make up the majority of my undead figures, they do make some of the most interesting)

If I ever DM we know what the first campaign will be! A recurring villain vampire (who keeps disguising themselves as another type of vampire so that the party never gives them true death) and their necromancer palls.


.... Bugger I just realised that I can construct a painted peasant, priest and paladin army to fight the undead.

Netherlands, still waiting for any sign.

Should I start to worry?

 

 

EU Wave 5.

No confirmation yet.

Where can I see that?

I've checked my pledge and account but I can't see anything that confirms a shipping note or sometihing like that?

      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. 👀
