Have a question?
@Zu Wandern - They charge it when you check out.
With the release of Brigands and Brown Coats we need 3x3 and 4x6 shipping/cargo crates..... lol
Bones 5 anyone?
Do bones charge your credit card when you checkout your order. Or do they charge your credit card when the pledge manager closes? As this determines whether I can buy a heap of extras or not. Thanks guys.
Two more things:
1) There's a very good chance shipping won't start in February. That's just the estimate and it's still over a year out. So, it's possible these might be shipping in December. Or July.
2) I'd take whatever precautions you can to prevent it from freezing, but if the paint doesn't work right when you receive it, I bet Reaper will send you a replacement. They're great about that kind of thing. I've gotten several replacements over the years, including some for paint bottles that leaked in transit.
Thanks Rik I guess I will chance it and see how it goes. They are so cheap I have to buy them. I absolutely love that it’s open till July allowing people like me to add every month. Well done Reaper!
As I understood from the comments the waves are practically 1 day apart. Reaper can apparently pack and ship about 1 wave of packages per day. So yours should still be sent in February.
@Moose it can get to be -40 Celsius and I am curious how fast the shipping will be. Hopefully it will arrive after March and then it should be ok. Just curious when wave 2 would really ship.
@Moose You got my attention, too. Lol
I don't think you have to worry about it freezing in the truck (unless its ridiculously cold), so the big risk would be if you have it left on your porch in the cold for hours. If that's a risk, have it shipped to work or tell the carrier not to leave it unattended.
Question for you fine folks. So if you order paint sets but live in cold climate what are the risks of it being frozen in shipment? I am wave 2 shipping.
> Furthermore, we clearly don't have enought dragons.
Considering how much of a trope it is in generic fantasy gaming, we need some *SLEEPING* dragons! (: I just picked up Vast, and noticed I don't have any sleeping dragons for proxies!
I would like to say thank you for leaving the pledge page open for so long. This allowed me, and I'm sure many others, to get those add-ons that we just couldn't cover during the main campaign.
Dumb question, maybe, but how will the Stygian Barge's long oar rest when displaying the model presuming one doesn't actually put it in real water?
@Chris wheeler I believe, if you can still access pledge manager using old e-mail address, you can also change your e-mail directly in pledge manager.
This page has tons of emails, phone numbers and addresses for contact purposes.
@reaper can I have an email address to contact you please as, long story short, I have lost my email address and now have to use a different one. Just want to make sure that I sort out any issues arising from this!!
Guess not again....ugh. :(
Yes, you either need to buy the Fan Favorites Expansion and sell/trade/give away the minis you don't want, or you can buy the dwarves on eBay for a premium after Bones 4 ships, or buy them at retail after an unknown period of time (for Bones 3, they're staggering the retail releases over a little more than a year, but who knows how they'll do them in Bones 4).
There are several things I want from the Fan Favorites but I also struggle finding 50 dollars worth of must haves. Hopefully my budget will have loosened by July or I find I really need something specific for the campaign I'm writing at the moment. So many nice Bones but paying rent is also quite important...
So is the only way to get the Clan Skullgrinder Dark Dwarves is through the expansion? Because this is the only I really like from the Fan Favorites Expansion and can't see adding $50 to a pledge for just 6 dwarves.
There are not enought cloud and storm giants.
Not to mention the more advanced giant variaties (shadow giants, dream giants, sun giants and so on).
Personally I would like to see reaper try to get into the 75mm, 110mm and bust markets. Furthermore, we clearly don't have enought dragons.
@Martek - you mean more Fire Giants? There are three Hill Giants... I doubt you'll see the Stone Giants on their own until retail; they don't break up expansion sets normally.
Hey Reaper, If you read this, there's something that I would REALLY be interested in if possible. That being a larger selection of GIANTS in the "Add-On" Section. If the Stone Giants were available for selection alone (with maybe a few more models) and if there were some more Hill Giant Models (like was done with the Fire and Frost Giants) I think that there would be MANY supporters who would quickly add them to their purchases. Especially my since I'm trying to build my Giants collection. Please let me know if there is even a slight chance for this. Thank You
I post on the forums occasionally, but the penchant for purging comments that the Mods deem to be unrelated is frustrating.
@Joe I considered joining the forum as well, but the Mods are too quick to delete any posts they don't like or consider off topic...if it's about miniatures, it's basically on topic and I'm ok with a reminder to folks to stay focused, but I got tired of seeing posts one day that are gone the next. Good luck!
I've been trying to signup for the forums on the reaper website but have been unable to for the past few days
I never receive the confirmation email to confirm my email address.
I hit resend confirmation email and get
We sent an email to "my email". It contains a link you need to click in order to confirm your account.
You will need to do this before you will be able to access our site as a registered member.
If I try to hit a second time it says
The email was sent to you 5 minutes ago. If you have not received it yet, please wait at least 15 minutes, and check your spam or junk folders. If you have still not received the email after 15 minutes, it can be sent again.
It's not in my spam. I've resent this confirmation email 5+ times.
Looks like the barge is roughly laid out as a 2"+ wide deck, with the ribs every half-inch. Front cabin top is about 3" wide, a bit under 1" for each side and a bit more on top, with maybe 2" long to play on. Shouldn't be too hard to eyeball most of it. The back deck is covered, so it's hard to say, but maybe plank markings would help.
I'm still doubting whether to get the Stygian barge or not. It really depends on usability in play for me..
Anyone have any ideas on how how to practically visualize 1-inch squares on the deck (and maybe roof)?
@Anthony, you are right. I completely zoned on their actual Update Schedule! :-)
Per their last update: The next scheduled Update will be Friday January 12, 2018.
I know we got a surprise update last week, but we are still expecting an update for today, right?
No problem Andrew!
@Andrew, log into the pledge manager and change your address there.
Hi, I need to change my address. What's the best way to go about it?
Woot! Thanks Daefyd!
It is on their previews page and in the retailer pack for release this month.
Waiting for the Dire Bear from Bones 3 to hit retail and saw Miniature Market post a bunch of new bones from Bones 3 up for sale. But they are on the B3MAP file for a July release.... Do we know if we are getting a Dire Bear in January? Seriously been waiting for it for months lol
They are saying the PM will be open until July 2018, so plenty of time to add to your order before the end.
Question, how long do we have to add more things? I am thinking of adding more to my order, maybe one per pay period (I know the next thing to add) but how long will the window be open?
Just looked in my barge and darkreach expansion! Sweeeeet! So many minis coming next year lol
I am still thinking of a few things, mostly Lost World and the dinosaurs. If I do not get them, and they do not add anything else, I think I am done.
Final partial order completed - unless something else new and interesting comes along. Whew!
I just wish there was one more paint set. Like one that had mostly washes or something to better accent the colors available.
Also, for what it's worth, the models usually look better in person than they do in internet photography, the models usually look very close to the digital renders, and the actual models usually look VERY close to the concept artwork.
The finished models are sometimes modified from the concept art in very specific ways: typically, thin, delicate things like weapons and ankles might be reinforced/thickened slightly in the sculpting to make them a little less likely to warp/bend. (I don't find his to be very noticeable or off-putting, but sometimes a backer will complain that a model doesn't look quite as graceful or delicate as the concept art led them to expect.)
Is there any chance at all that we'll get We Will Roc You in translucent plastic as an option, like many people have requested and has been responded to as being a pretty good idea? Because that is relevent to my interests...
Some primers do not react well to the Bonesium!
It is best to try out some on the bottom of a mini before applying it to the rest of the figure. Reaper's liners (blue, grey, brown, red, green, and sepia) do an excellent job when serving as a primer. There is some excellent information about this on the forum.
