  1. Adventurescapes

    Talae, yes, they've hinted that they might be fulfilling early. They started making some of the minis before campaign even ended and I think the painter is already painting some things. Adventurescapes 2 is already in the works and should be launched in a few months. At one point, I think they mentioned a December/January time frame, but I'd expect they'll probably wait until Adventurescapes 1 is fulfilled before launching.
  2. Please give us a Bones version of Jolistina Susperio (60159). Everything about her is awesome, but for a medium humanoid she's even expensive by metal standards.
  3. [SPLIT] Discussion of dark paints

    That's interesting that dark blue or green paint is darker than Reaper's Pure Black, despite the fact that black is the darkest color. I too have noticed that the Pure Black paint isn't as black I would expect from something called "Pure Black." I've been wondering about why Reaper can make blues and greens that are darker than their black. Does anyone know? I've heard that black paints are extremely glossy, so I was wondering if the presence of extra matte additive is what makes it less dark? I have noticed that semi-gloss blacks tend to look significantly darker than matte blacks. In trying to find an answer, I did find this image, which just seems to support what people are saying that, for whatever reason, black paint isn't very black.
  4. [SPLIT] Discussion of dark paints

    Yeah, I don't mix in Pure Black to make shadows either. I have a lot of paint colors, so usually I just make my own triads with the colors I have. I still go through a lot of Pure Black though, for metallic undercoats, painting the sides of my bases black (they start that way, but always end up with some paint on them before I'm done), and occasionally, black cultist robes or similar things.
  5. [SPLIT] Discussion of dark paints

    Okay, I'm sold. My darkest blue paints are currently Deep Blue and Ritterlich Blue, so it will be useful to have something darker. I still want to know how Bathory uses it, that it was the first color she ever finished. Besides Pure Black and Pure White, I've finished a few bottles of gray and brown paints, but I don't think I'm even close to finishing off any other colors.
  6. [SPLIT] Discussion of dark paints

    Just wondering why the people who said they use it all the time use it all the time. A friend brought over a bottle of it for awhile, but I never used it because it didn't seem black enough to be black to me (unlike Pure Black or Noir Black) and I didn't happen to be painting dark blue during that time. I was especially curious how Bathory went through two bottles of Nightmare Black before even finishing off a bottle of Pure Black or Pure White. I was thinking maybe she uses it instead of Pure Black, in which case, maybe my initial assessment that it's not black enough to be used as black was wrong. But now I'm rambling. :)

    Nightmare Black is a very dark blue, correct? Do you typically use it in place of black or for shading blues?

    It's a separate piece, but it looks like the firewood underneath it is part of the cauldron (though I don't know whether they come attached).

    So, should I paint the docks to compliment Dreadmere or the barge in Bones 4? What's that, miniature shoulder angel that makes me buy all the minis? You think I should get two sets of docks and paint one for each? Well, that seems like a good idea, but the last time I listened to you I spent all my money on Bones 4...

    Hurry up and everyone pledge for 10 core sets! It's too cheap not to. And I want the two-headed troll with the pig. :)

    Nevermind, he just went to bed too. I guess it's either auto-updater or bust.
  12. Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    Reaper Ron seems to be on duty now. I was assuming he would update it. If not, we might have to wait until morning.

    Alternatively, if they get the sci-fi/pulp out of the way early, it will mean more of the future stretch goals are fantasy, which are the most popular and might be more useful during the mid-Kickstarter doldrums.
  14. Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    I assumed that too, but the fire giant is holding on to the dog's chain. I hope they can be detached, as it will make a difference on whether I pledge for it as well.

    We're only seeing the first screen (the market). There is probably at least one more page of rewards to unlock after they finish the market. We can probably expect new rewards to be unlocking until at least $2 or $3M.
