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.

      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.

      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. 👀
