Still Working on it!

Posted by Reaper Miniatures (Creator)

Just an update to let everybody know that we are still working on the RPM (Reaper Pledge Manager).  The complexity of Options which was sometimes overwhelming to you while calculating your pledge has been a major factor in the development of the RPM, and includes everything from Trading out Sophie, Upgrading to UL Sophie, Adding Options, Adding Extra Sets, calculating international (Non-Canadian/USA) shipping, and integrating that with KickStarter and Amazon's data - (which we have only received a partial list of backers so far!) is a complex task, and because of the sheer number of you involved, we need to be 100% sure that we do it right from the first minute - and that it can handle the volume!

We do appreciate everybody's patience, and we will continue to post regular updates as we work out the bugs in the program to give you all a bug-free launch.

When it is made available, everyone that backed will receive an e-mail containing your personal link to the RPM with login details to help ensure a smooth process.  Furthermore, links to the RPM will be added to the Update tab, the Home tab of the KickStarter Project itself, and the website.  The RPM will be live for approximately 30 days, so you don't have to worry that you may have missed it and it went up and down before you had a chance to use it. 

Thank you all for your support and patience!

      Everyone keeps calling the wizard "Gandwarf." He's clearly got to be hiding a .45 under that robe to deal with his taller, gaunt necromancer brother. That's what I saw and I'm sticking with it. Not, concentrated Gandalf, but Avatar (and no, not a bald kid with arrow tats or a horrible movie with long-haired blue aliens.) Now all I need is a robot riding a featherless ostrich and 2 mutants in gasmasks and fatigues.

      Yeah waiting is fine. I have a check coming in too. :) So if it takes longer, then I'll have more money to add. Thank you Reaper!

      Looks like my first question was answered before I asked it... apparently I missed Bryan's post. :-P
      @ Robyn: I'm in no hurry... I'd rather see the Pledge Manager come out later and bug-free than earlier and buggy. Besides, it gives me more time to get paid and add to my pledge! :-)

      If the Oct 1 date is accurate for the RPM, I'll be out of town the day it goes live... typical timing for me. But Reaper has said that it will be live for a month, so I'm all good there; I'm only gone for a couple of days, and I'll have another mid-month paycheck to put on this. :-D

      Still looking anxiously forward to the RPM (given the lack of updates this week, I will assume that its still a work in progress).

    5. Daniel McDeavitt on

      Definitely want to increase my pledge now that i can!

    6. Jackson Starky on

      I'll third the question posed by aduong314 and seconded by Jonathan Griego. I'll also second Matt Price's question, although I'm pretty sure I won't have anything left to spend on anything outside of this KS, given the quantities I'd like to get of some of the bigger ones. Nothing extreme, mind you; it just all adds up. :-)

    7. Matt Price on

      Hi folks at Reaper,
      I know you're still hard at work on the RPM - any chance it might be able to accommodate purchases of your non-Kickstarter models? This might be too much work, but it would save on shipping, and would allow me to spend more money on your awesome models. I was browsing your webstore at the mounted models (which I heard ALMOST made it in!) and they're badass. I don't mind the wait... But if this won't work, I'll put in an order anyhow.

    8. Sean Dugger on

      Does anyone know if the initial e-mails have been sent out yet, or only when the RPM goes live? I havn't been keeping up to date but I check my inbox (after approving their e-mail address) with regularity. Also, I have been billed, so I know something is working. Thanks.

    9. Jonathan Griego on

      @ aduong314

      That is one hell of a good question, I would like to know the answer too.

    10. Jonathan Griego on

      Alright, the model looks great and its good to see some of the concept art making its way into the third dimension already. Keep up the good work.

    11. Bryan Stiltz on

      Aduong314: Nothing will ship before the Pledge Manager is out - we don't have shipping addresses without the Pledge Manager...

      So the sophie figures are suppose to ship out this month but what if I wanted to change my sophie figure out for something else are you shipping the sophie figures before the pledge manager is even out?

    13. Reaper Miniatures 6-time creator on

      Nicholas Cameron : No

    14. Alan

      I don't think that is the case but I'm really hoping that the Reaper Pledge Manager is really clear on this so that I can properly budget my money.

    15. Nicholas Cameron on

      Do American buyers have additional shipping for purchasing more than 4 of a thing?

    16. MG on

      Really soon! They swear!

    17. Tim Williamson on

      Yep, only Sophie is trade able through reaper. You get $25 of credit for extra minis, paints or whatever for her. However, like I said, on reapers website in the forums there is a thread set up for trades between backers.

    18. David Turner on

      Wait....only the Sophie is Tradeable? Man....that sucks. At least she'll be tradeable though, that is my least favorite mini in the set.

    19. Joe Kushner

      Just don't be like the RPG Kickstarters where it's like, "No, seriously dudes, real soon now."

    20. Tim Williamson on

      @david forgot to mention, there is a trade thread at the reaper forums. Specifically for people to trade out their unwanted minis.

    21. Tim Williamson on

      @David reaper has said that the only swap will be Sophie. With 16,475 vampire backers it would take forever for them to fill orders if they had to make swaps with just half of them.

    22. Shawn Koch on

      I just wish I could pump MORE money into my pledge. So many add ons...

    23. David S on

      any chance of being able to swap out some of the other things in the vampire level instead of just Sophie - afterall who wouldnt want Sophie but some other things are really not relevant to me but I wouldnt mind some extras from the line?

      Matt McI on

      @Steve - My voice is far from an official word, but I seem to recall that the cases had only been prototyped so far, as they're approximately twice the size of the ones currently being sold (ish). As a result, they'll be part of the March shipment.

      Having said that, I'm dredging that thought up from several weeks ago now, so please take with a well-meant pinch of salt!

    25. Johnn Four on

      Take your time. I'd rather you guys stayed sane, and things are smooth and easy and accurate. We wait for March 2013 anyway, so more time to get the orders right is no problem.

      Daniel Knowles on

      Thanks for the update! Just let us know when your ready.

    27. Steve on

      I'm pretty sure paints are meant to be coming with Sophie, i.e. estimated September this year (but probably October by the time the surveys get finished).
      I'm most curious about the miniature cases. They didn't specify so I assume march next year, but any chance of them coming in the first wave? :)

    28. Commissar Mike on

      Thanks for the update, and as the others said, do what you have to do. I am sure a major initiative with a response such as the one you had will require a fair amount of work.

      Out of curiosity, when did you expect the new paint sets to be sent out? I saw the timelines on the minis but missed that one if it was up. That is what I am really excited paints!

    29. Major Girot on

      I'm right there with Steve. Take your time Reaper. I've got your back too. Gimmi a shout if you need help with anything.

    30. Just Dave on

      Thanks for the update, and it is good to keep us informed, heck we have until March, I can be patient

    31. Steve on

      Thanks for the update, Reaper! Take your time, better for it to be right the first time. ;)

      I'm going to keep hitting F5 until the link appears!

    33. Brent Brown on

      Take your time... The longer it takes... the longer I have to save up! :-D

    34. Shawn on

      Awesome, can't wait!

    35. Sean Lambert (sum1els)

      I hope the RPM gives users some feedback - I'm curious how many people opted for each add-on, etc.

    36. Theresa Ocken on

      yes, thank you! this is really awesome and gives us peace of mind!

    37. Nicholas Rintche on

      Thank you for the continued updates and for all the effort you are putting in to make this work!

    38. Morgan Kollin on

      @Bruce: you can trade out your minis with other people, but not with Reaper it'self(only the Sophie model). You should check out the Reaper boards, lots of fun stuff going on there.

      We've got time, and the only things that people are in a hurry for are Sophie and the paints. And as I know that KS lets you send out the KS manager by tier, I really think that Vampire needs to come last, due to the sheer volume.

    39. MRiley on

      Thanks for the frequent updates, Reaper!

      @ CashWiley: If all goes well, Oct 1 2012

    41. Reaper Miniatures 6-time creator on

      @ Bruce D Koontz: No, only the Sophie model.

    42. Reaper Miniatures 6-time creator on

      Eric R. Medved: Also, if they only billed you for that much, you can add the difference in our pledge manager and use a credit card or paypal to make up the difference too.

      It's probably too late to work anything out with KS or Amazon unless they charged you more than they are report you pledged. It sounds like they may have just lost one of your last pledges and it didn't actually work.

    43. Reaper Miniatures 6-time creator on

      The RPM will allow you to change your address at anytime until we ship. The pledging part will be locked after 30 days.

    44. Reaper Miniatures 6-time creator on

      @Eric: for payment issues, we have to route you to Amazon payments, as we do not have access to that information. If there continues to be a problem, you can contact us at to see if there is anything we can do on our end. It is possible that Amazon processed an incorrect amount and we can let you fix that at the RPM, but I do not have all of the information to be certain at this time.

    45. Steel_Wind on

      Relax guys and be sure to get it right the first time :). We signed up, paid our money and expected a delivery date as far off as March, 2013. We're not going anywhere.

    46. Carla on

      Thank you so much for keeping us updated! Waiting is not a problem as long as we know where we are in the process and what's going on! You all are most awesome!!

    47. CashWiley on

      When will the Year of Metal begin!? :)

    48. Fabio Di Reto on

      While we wait quietly the RPM, we can have the two pdf files to be able to read / study / print?

      Thank you for the tremendous work.
