I also noticed on my end gauth has no picture showing. 

I believe they said in some chat thing that they didn't have one!?!  I assume that there will be a piccy somewhen. Otherwise look in Bones 4 (?, I lose track of which of the multitudinous dragons I aquired through bones cam efrom which) on the kick starter, I expect there is a pretty (?) piccy of him.

 

Extra! Extra! Read all about it...

Got my minis last week. Really happy with the casting of the Bones Black material. Definitely a big improvement in crispness compared to Bones White.

 

After seeing some painted mini pics, I’m wishing I got the Golem set. I got a Loot Golem, but I love the Stained Glass Golem and the Stone Golem is bigger than I though it would be.

 

My friend got a Pirate Ship. It definitely looks awesome, but I think I’d struggle to use it enough in my games to justify the cost and it’s that big I’d need to find more room just to store it! :-D

I help myself with chatting in the discord and getting my own information from ReaperHQ ZombieCo (Reaper UK), but I would very very much appreciate an official update from here.
We know they're a smaller group, and we know they might have their struggles, like getting enough shippers to accept their packages.

But if we are not updated, we're trying to fill in the blanks ourselves with guesses.

I'd much prefer to know the actual state. Would it be possible to get like a weekly update from the UK guys stating how many they shipped last week, possibly some issue they're tackling or have tackled, and what wave they're in?

 

I'm 100% sure this would be appreciated and help ease the minds of many EU/UK backers.

Can’t beat the value/quality combo you get with Reaper KS!

 

Nice work!

 

I’m really happy I got the Dark Depths expansion. The Aquatic Beholder is probably worth half the cost of entry by itself, but there are so many cool minis in the box. 39 minis for $50 is ridiculous value.

I am really impressed by the townsfolk figures. I expected to like them, but not as much as I am liking them. They are such simple sculpts and yet they provide a really nice range of characters that include a couple of possible wizards, priests and thieves. Plus townsfolk can be thrown nearly everywhere.

Dark depths value for money was amazing. That is mostly due to the the large size of nearly all figures and the large amount of medium to large figures. A comparison to a similar product on the market (Wizkids dolphins and sharks, ~10AUD for a large shark and fin or two large dolphins), really highlight this. As I said previously the merpeople being so large was a real surprise.

Glad you guys got it figured out, I remember asking Izzy and she said an apostle but then I had to figure out what that was haha

 

 

I used to game English Civil War, so that’s a familiar concept (so called becuase the standard number was 12), seen on most musketeer figures. ::D:  There’s a lot of obsolete jargon you learn in this hobby.

I understand that things take a long time, that this is happening outside of Reaper HQ, that the team is much smaller, etc...

... but the last time anything was officially communicated in the Kickstarter Updates about "UK Zone" shipping was on August 16th. EU shipping was supposedly 50% done, one month after the July 16th update said EU shipping had begun. So, if that's anything to go on... update in another 6 days?


Then again I also understand that there might not be much to communicate. Still, whatever there is, I don't feel like I should be going on a scavenger hunt for breadcrumbs to know what to expect, and I'm not the only person in the dark. I dunno, I'm getting a bit antsy now.

      A co-author and I have started a venture and would appreciate you checking out our RPG supplement!! This is our first KS project, but I’ve been here on the forums for years. We’ve backed tons of projects and all well-versed in KS.
       
      Little secret…the project is named in homage to my favorite band. 😆
       
      Please scope out our project! See you at ReaperCon.

      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! 
       
      (August 26) Original:
      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.
