I backed MBP but they weren't quite organised to manage to actually send me the game (I did get a refund eventually...). But, I also backed Gods War by Petersen Games, which has quite a lot of thunder gods and stuff... so I am not sure I need Greek stuff.

Yeah, I might not go above $1, myself. Shipping is under $15, though.

If this is your first Reaper KS, it's a very good (though, as M said, scattershot) assortment of miniatures. But, after Mythic: Battles, CMON, and Reaper Bones V either offered miniatures I already had, or miniatures I probably wouldn't game with.

Reaper's market seems to be leaning towards painters (or their own artists) who want unusual miniatures. Meanwhile, WizKids is Deep Cutting (see what I did there) Reaper with miniatures targeting RPG'ers, Reaper's original audience.

Might stay at $1 for Zombicide, and save the money for Black Friday.

Too many games, too many miniatures to paint. A good problem to have for us backers, at least while creators can absorb shipping costs.


Everything is easy when you expect someone else to do it.

Also Monolith has been talking about Conan 2020 Kickstarer (january) today which will have a VS mode. To do a skirmish game they're selling theme boxes that mix MBP and Conan figures and if you backed either one you'll get a discount code that's they're saying will be one of the cheapest you'll ever see for minis due to them mostly just being repackaged existing stuff.

But thankfully you don't have to fill out the bones V pledge manager for like another year. Plenty of time to decide.

Oh shoot. That would be amazing. Those are some great sculpts, and some of them are very hard to find.

If you send me a list of the bits you don’t want from Core I’d take a look..
Living Dead is definitely a part I want from Core.
That and the prices you’re wanting to sell at, or are you aiming for KS costs to make yours free?

Should have made a new thread about that when it was announced yesterday. Now that's done so this isn't derailed.

I will PM you -- probably tomorrow evening. I am not planning to make a profit -- I just want to see if anyone wants in on the core set, as if it's just me, I may skip it and just get bits and pieces.

There was a pile of stuff from the core set I fancied - the Kobolds, Boulderkin, Krampus, if you're wanting to split some of them out.

Herzlos -- yes -- I need no kobolds or boulderkin, at the very least. Will drop you a PM as well.

The pirate ship is going to be seriously big here's the overall size end to end with the figurehead in it's place for reference



here's the figure head for scale - the ship will come with the lady figurehead and the hippocampus and grimreaper will be optional extras







All of the cannons are separate and they are considering doing a more fantasy version of them as an optional extra.




For $100 it's a bargain I'll probably get one no idea what for but I think I'd regret not getting one more.

Nothing against Reaper, I am in for hundreds of bucks for sure, but I would seriously advise anyone who thinks they will use that sort of huge model to get a 3D printer instead.

I really like scratchbuilding my own stuff, and supporting cool boutique casters like Ainsty for some of the details. No 3D printer for me, thanks.

To 3D print , at the size they're showing this too be, this would easily be $45-$60 of filament ($15 a kg). If you need a ship that size I think getting the bones one would still be worth considering as you're also going to pay $15 for the file to print the ship and I don't know any that aren't tile based that would be any larger then about 1/3rd of that. Probably take a week or so to print and assemble too (though this isn't delivering for over a year so that's a plus I would guess)

And that is assuming that everything comes out as desired.

A friend has a Creality 3 - and maybe a quarter of his prints go awry.

Plus, depending on the 3D printer, detail could be a bit lacking. (See the above mentioned Creality - it is a filament based printer, and there are definite ridges.)

The UV/Resin printer that is tempting me has a 3" bed - putting together a model over 20" is going to be a bit of a jigsaw puzzle.

Overall, I am sticking with getting the model through the KS - save the 3D print for lower res terrain.

Though my wife and I are leaning toward at least two - the question is whether the second one is a pirate ship or a ghost ship.

QC can get really hard really fast with hobbyist grade 3d printers. Tiny little discrepancies can make joining together pieces cut up in Cura or whatever hard to join together.

A reminder for any who took part in this that the DEADLINE for the pledge manager is December 1st. So just over 1 month away! Kind of scary how fast it feels like that date has crept up!

Pledge Manager https://pm.reapermini.com/session/new

Remember you have to register onto their pledge manager using the same email in your KS if you've not already registered.

Yet it still feels like ages until they’ll actually come.

Not that I know what I want to do with all the stuff I’m getting, but I still want them here

Oh man, I cannot decide if I want to go in for that pirate ship or not...
If I go in for the pirate ship there are a couple other things I'll have to get...
I can't decide whether it will provide enough gaming value to justify the price, but I feel like it is one of those things I'll forever regret not getting, as it will be double the price or something at retail.

Just completed the PM and was not charged VAT, which is a good indication Reaper has no intention of shipping from within the EU in any case, Brexit or not.

Reaper setup an EU hub base - in the UK.

Brexit just messed them up and chances are with Corona for the last year setting up a new EU hub is hard; esp because they likely need the UK to leave and the EU to settle before they can make a good hub choice; especially as we don't know what kind of trading relationship the UK and EU will have (right now we are still stuck with both sides having a stand off with each other)

Did they ever decide on a more fantasy cannon version? I would love that, but haven't seen anything and the pledge manager looks like it's not there...

I play...

Sigh.

Who am I kidding? I only paint these days...
