Kickstarter Discussion Thread

Recommended Posts

I just threw a bunch of extra money on my pledge and I don't even know what I'm getting with it. I figure I can find something. My son's been refreshing the Kickstarter page a few times an hour for the last few days, so I'm pretty sure he'll be able to spend any extra money I haven't allocated. He's really wanting that new dracolich, which I hadn't originally planned on getting, so I'm sure some of it will go toward that.

 

Heck, I haven't even been paying that close attention to the reveals the last day or two. Not that they aren't nice (they are!), I'm just kinda numb at this point. So many days of Christmas in a row.

 

(and that's not a criticism, Reaper folks - it's a comfortable numbness and it's my own darn fault for getting in so early)

It's almost over Bryan. In March, when things are getting crazy again, you'll probably be coming out to Boston area again, and we'll have to enjoy some cold adult beverages.

 

Indeed, between prepping for PAX and shipping out approximately 6 bazillion Bones, I imagine that March will be an "interesting" time at Reaper HQ. :blink:

So wait is the RPM going to use a seperate pay system?

 

Yes. They can't use Kickstarter's billing process once the drive's over. I think Bryan or Kit mentioned anything above what your KS pledge was [since you can only increase, not decrease] will be going through Paypal.

Same processing system as our online store. Credit cards or Paypal.

Ooh, this goal is so very \m/

 

Maybe I'll paint them up to make an Iron Maiden video diorama or something.

joshuaslter,

 

Did this occur I've been looking for the mushroom cloud from my perch on the Walt Whitman Bridge.

 

 

I'm vacationing for the next two days away from a computer. It will be nice until I return, see the kickstarter, and then the next you'll hear of me is "some guy's head exploded in Philly. It appears he spontaneously exploded as well."

 

Film of explosion at eleven.

Thanks for the clarification, Kit. Sweet action.

Wow...closing in on 2 days left, and I never in my wildest dreams expected this to be flirting with the $2M mark. I don't know what the company was hoping for...given we're down to single-reveal maps, we might already have shot past their wildest dreams, too.

 

We will crush the $2M mark. Think more along the lines of flirting with the $3M mark... :;):

 

I don't believe the single-reveal maps are an indication of Reaper's expectations, but rather of how they are managing the KS right now. It's been said all along that they are prepared out to $4M.

I've stifled it, by some miracle.

And beyond, if demand requires it. We decided a while ago that we didn't want to reveal two goals at a time and not reach the second at the last minute. That could be disappointing for our supporters.

Yes, I think I need to revise my $2.3M estimate upwards. Woot! :wow:

      I have finally started working on my many Bones minis. This first one is 773000 Antipaladin by Bobby Jackson. It is mostly an experimental/ practice piece. I am not completely happy with my mold line removal, but in this case I am not going to worry about it too much. Mostly it is to get me acquainted with working with Bones minis and to experiment with my new Scale 75 metallic paints. I am not happy with all of the photos, my old photo setup got broken and I haven't gotten it replaced yet and just as I was taking these pictures one of my light bulbs went out and I don't have a replacement. Should be able to get better pics once I get a new bulb.
       
      First off I base coated the cape with Nightmare Black. This was a new paint purchase and I wanted to play with it. Really like this color.
      Next I used Faded black to Undercoat the skulls on the armor. I'm planning to do these in a metallic steel. Used Tanned skin as a base coat on his head.
      Next came Ultramarine Shadow for the armor undercoat. I really like this color for this as I am going to do the majority of the armor in a dark blue steel tone. The only down side is that the blue colors are fairly transparent and so take several coats to get good coverage.
       
      Looks like I am having some chipping issues, but I think I have that issue solved. Hope to get some more work done on him soon if life doesn't make me do other things first

      I love this figure.
      Not so much the bendy weapons, but I straightened them out.
      They have bent back a little (Sword).

      I did a WIP on him.  Thanks for the encouragement along the way.
      http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/80720-kord-the-destroyer-bones/
       
      He is another for our Reign of Winter Adventure Path.  My DM said "Vikings."  Kord has that vibe for sure.
       

       
      I tried to paint the base like grass.
      The hardest part was the nmm on the axe, and trying to get the runes to show up on the sword.  It's a very irregular axe shape, so it was tough to figure out how to do it.
      My green stuff patch job on the wolf pelt was not the greatest, but it is decent enough camouflage.
      The second-hardest part of the figure to me was figuring out what parts of the pelt were what.  What is tail? What are legs?  I did my best.
      Overall, I'm pleased with him.  He seems like such a bad-a$$.
      As for the pics, iPhone seems to be good for far away, but really "blobby" for up close.  Maybe it is suffering from zoom.
      C&C Welcome.

      First up is Terezinya, Bonepander Wizard (Reaper 77173).  She had been sitting on my paint desk partially painted for so long that her base got dusty, oops.  She always gave me a pirate wibe, hence the plank base.




      Nienna, Female Elf Ranger (Reaper 77091) is another one that sat partially painted for a really long time.  All that green, how do I paint all her knickknacks in an interesting way without making her stand out in forest?  Finally just brute forced it to get her done.


       
      Trista, the White Wolf (Reaper 77094), she didn't languish as long as the other two, but like normal I got stuck on deciding on colors for all the details.  But with 3 off the desk of shame I can start on something new!

      Here are 2 of the pin-up babes from Wargamer LLC's kickstarter Hot & Dangerous.  
       
      First up Lagertha the Shieldmaiden.  I love how her cloak turned out.  Not so happy with the face, it look pretty terrible in the photos, its not so bad in hand.  I need to get better at thinning my paints I think.




       
      Rosie the Bowman (the official name).  I did not like the concept art at all, but the finished sculpt turned out great.  I love how she has a lot of spunk.
