  1. PRELAUNCH

    I can't wait for Bones 4 and am planning on getting one of almost everything. It doesn't matter if I already have one or more of every Bones mini and will never get them all painted. It's called plastic crack for a reason. Regardless of what the Kickstarter delivery date says, I'm setting my own expectation that Bones 4 will ship around June 2019 to the U.S. Hopefully, I'll be pleasantly surprised and it will ship sooner. If not, so be it.
  2. Tl;dr: Can I add Reaper Anti-Shine Additive to Les' Magic Wash without causing any problems? If so, how much? Full Question: I like Reaper's Wash Medium, but I go through it pretty fast and was looking for a cheaper alternative. I've mixed up some Les' Magic Wash (roughly 50% Liquitex Matte Medium, 45% distilled water, and 5% Liquitex Flow Aid) to try as a cheaper alternative. It works well, except for one problem: Despite the 50% Matte Medium, it doesn't cut the shine on inks, especially my Vallejo Game Inks. Whenever I use it, the washed area turns glossy. I know that a matte sealer is supposed to cut the shine, and it does to some extent, but I've never been able to successfully restore a glossy area to the extreme matte I'm used to from Reaper paints. I'd say it ends up more like the satin finish of Army Painter paints, and I don't care for it. I use both Krylon UV Resistant Matte and Testor's Dullcote to seal the minis (often a combination of the two) and have the problem with both of them. I've been through several cans of each in the past six months, so it's not a bad can, either. I've read and watched everything I could find about proper Dullcote application, so whether it's my technique or I just have unrealistic expectations, I don't know, but at this point I just want to be able to paint my minis without them ever becoming glossy in the first place, because once they do, I can't bring them back to their original level of matteness. So, my question: If I buy a bottle of Reaper's Anti-Shine Additive, can I add it to the Les' Magic Wash to kill the shine on my inks the way that Reaper's Wash Medium does? Will it cause any problems, such as undermining the surfactant qualities of the Magic Wash? If not, how many drops of Anti-Shine Additive should I add to a dropper bottle of the Magic Wash? Thanks!
  3. I'd like to see Bones versions of all the metal Nagendra, along with some new sculpts. I wanna be able to do not-Yuan-ti dungeons and one Bones "Snakeman Warrior" just doesn't cut it.
  4. We also need one or two Bones wyverns. Of the existing metal ones 14260: Bile the Wyvern,Overlords Monster and 03659: Wyvern are my favorites. I'd also like a leucrotta miniature. The 02806: Badger-wolf metal mini is good.
  5. I'm sure someone has already said this, but I'd like more different types of large-sized spiders (sized to fit on a 2" base) Bones versions of 14210: Goblin Beastrider, Reven Capt. and 14189: Goblin Beast Rider, Reven Adept (I love those sculpts) A Bones version of 03069: Hooked Hulk (I want to be able to field 4 or 5 not-Umber Hulks for D&D and the metal minis are too expensive) A Bones version of 03243: Swamp Shambler A Bones version of 60159: Jolistina Susperio (Because vampire clowns are awesome!) A Bones version of 03322: Efreeti Emir Additional sculpts for humanoid monster races from previous Kickstarters, such as the Beastmen and Spikeshells. Ideally, I want at least four different sculpts of things like these, so I can create decent-sized encounters
