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.

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:

      A Hidden Realm lays far beneath tortured Perdition, a honeycomb of twisting tunnels and deep caverns. For centuries, outcast Dark Elves toiled here without the touch of the sun.
      A spellcasting Morrigan leads your warriors. Then choose from stealthy Nightcloaks, deadly Vindicators, dual-bladed Deathcriers, meek Waywardens, and horrifying Soulweavers. Each Dark Elf starts with an unknown skill—until you create your war clan. And if you’re fortunate, some of your warriors may be Dark Fae like the feasting Black Annis, the nightmarish Bodach, slimy Gobelyn, enchanting Merrow, or one of many other possibilities.
      Daughters of Twilight expansion sets feature 8 Reaper® Bones miniatures. Each comes with a round base for you to assemble and paint in your own distinctive style. Many of the exclusive figures we’ve selected aren’t available anywhere yet—you’ll be among the first to own them. The awesome figures inset here are from a rendering and will replace a few of the figures depicted.

Fire lethal hand crossbows. Lend your Dark Elves prestige with Signature Armor designed just for them. And train the Cait Sidhe and giant orb-weaver to fight alongside your warriors. 
      Guides also come with extras. Get the die-cut templates you’ll need as your Dark Elves adapt to harsh sunlight and cast unique magick. A “Dark Web” PDF roster is easy to customize. It tracks your warriors’ levels, skills, armor, weapons, poisons, loot, treasures, and Adamant—the glowing but unbreakable substance only your Artificer knows how to craft.
      Roll with “Deep Purple” Dice
      Sets come with three attack dice featuring The WitchBorn’s hit location system. A critical skewers a victim while an oops means your warrior fails miserably—sometimes with comical results. Add two D6 for rolling feats and injury outcomes and your Dark Elves will be styling.

      This is my first post here!  I have been encouraged for a while to join the forums and share some of the mini's that I have painted. I have been painting for many years dabbling in many styles and mediums. I've gotten more serious about my mini work the last couple years though. 
      I was hesitant to share my work, but figured, "What the heck! Why not!"
       
      I decided to start with this model as it is one of my favorites to paint and I just love glitter, man! 
      I painted this up for my first con last fall and it was actually purchased by my bestie,  he then requested I add the glitter (to match another halfling mini I did for him.) 
      This is now his alternate ego character (he is the DM lol), which in his campaign ge had only revealed himself to be a helpful travelling halfling wizard until this guy was done. Then it was revealed he was a celestial dragon all along and the main adversary...or something like that lol! 
       
      Please be honest and feel free to C&C! Ultimately I know the owner loves it, but I would love to see what others think!! 
      And thanks for welcoming me into this community!
      Oh, and as I am sure you guessed, I did get the Bones 3 Kickstarter so, please feel free to request I share any other minis I might have painted already or will paint :)

      I created a little Graveyard.
      The Crypt and the Raven are resin models from Minimonsters, the Skeleton rising from the grave is 02043 from Reaper.
      The Tombstones and Fence are from the Reaper Bones III Graveyard Set.
      The pathway was made with Milliput and I used the Greenstuffworld Cobblestone Rollerpin on it.
       
      Enjoy!

      for a 5E game.  That's about all I can do for my WIP's theme after only one session.  Mostly it will be monsters.  Maybe I can convince the DM to tell me what's coming so I can paint it.   These are just for tabletop, but my philosophy is you should still try something new on every piece, or at least work on getting better at something you can already do.  Which is why I started a WIP I wasn't even originally going to bother with - for an experiment.
       
      I was looking at the marsh troll and thinking "this would be a good candidate for glaze painting."  Now if you aren't familiar with glaze painting, it is where you prime white and then add washes/glazes of progressively darker colors.  It creates your midtone and shadows, then you go back in and add back the highlights.  You can do it for anything but it is ideal for textures.  Now Bones are white, but you can't just go over them with diluted paints.  Liner works well to prime, but then the mini is no longer white.  But wait, I have a large bottle of white craft paint that I used for some terrain.  What if I prime with liner, give it a heavy drybrush so the highlights are white again, and then glaze paint?
       
      Step 1: Brown liner + a heavy drybrush of white craft paint.
       

       
      Step 2: Green skin starts with yellow paint.  Here is a potential issue - the liner shifts the shadows to green.  As I want green skin this isn't an issue but it would be if I wanted my final color to be yellow.  I am also trying not to be messy as I would need to make any messes white again later.
       

       
      Step 3: Sap green diluted to a wash.  Now the skin is greenish.
       

       
      Step 4: A second wash of sap green in the shadows to add more depth.
       

       
      Step 5: His highlights are still pretty yellow in hand so I made a wash of anthraquinone blue.  It will make the yellow more green and further darken the shadows.
       

       
      Oh, I hit his front too.  It was really blue so I started the color shift with some phthalocyanine green ink.
       

       
      Interlude: Lem.  Needed for a PC.  Must be finished by Friday.  The troll is optional.
       

       
      Step 6:  All leather was hit with a couple of layers of burnt umber ink.
       

       
      Step 7:  The wood was coated with a mix of burnt umber ink and titanium white.  Some of the liner still shows through so the initial color is a little wonky in places.  Maybe it'll add texture to the wood....
       

       
      Step 7: Shade the wood.  Initially I used a burnt umber ink wash, but it wasn't intense enough and would end up  looking like the leather after a few more washes.  So I used the obvious wood shadow color, dioxazine purple ink watered down to a wash.
       

       
      From the front.  His belly got a wash of the burnt umber ink while it was out.  A couple more and it would turn olive, but maybe I'll leave it bluish.  While multiple washes have smoothed it out you can still see texture from the drybrush showing through.  It's an interesting effect here but won't always be desirable.
       

       
      Step 8: Call it a night and go to bed.  I have to work and make money after all.  We can't paint all the time.    Next update - unknown.  I really do need to finish the halfling bard before I play around anymore.

      I've been wanting to paint these rat swarms since I got my Bones I shipment.
      However, the base was cut into this jagged shape, so I always delayed painting them as I waited on basing them.
      Finally, I decided to base some with a good heapin' helpin' of sand.  The other two got green stuff treatment to try to blend the base that way.
      One was wood planks, and the other was flagstones.
       
      I tried to emphasize fur/hair in the painting.
      I totally "phoned it in" on the tails, noses and claws.
      I really didn't want to over-spend time on these guys.
      Sorry, I realize I didn't give you a good shot of the skull they are swarming over.
       
      C&C Welcomed.
