Kickstarter Discussion Thread

With only about two hours left to go, I think there's a pretty good chance that Reaper will achieve their funding goal of 30K... and then some (by a large margin)! ^^

 

Wow! It's been an amazing ride! It's been fun keeping an eye on this campaign and watching it as it reached achievement after achievement and breaking all sorts of records! Milestones such as the 30K, 500K, and the MILLION dollar mark (only the tenth project that met that on KS I believe) seems so long ago as the project continues to rack up a couple of more million bucks. Truly amazing! The "$1,234,567" one was especially fun to watch as it fluctuated above and below it for a time as people tried make it land right at that mark.

 

The project, the ocean of comments, the unparalleled dedication of the Reaper team (there were updates in the middle of the night as achievements were reached!), all the many sites that promoted it (like the Paizo letters and fan-based ones), and even the tried and true word-of-mouth (I did my part!) has never let the excitement and interest to wane. That's incredible! Heck, we even broke the Reaper site at times! Kudos to the Reaper team and the backers who stayed up at all hours of the day (and passing the torch along to the next shift) answering questions, telling stories, making jokes, and everything in between. It's quite an experience to see so much camaraderie among all us gamers and hobbyist! (I must admit I chuckled hearing about the bachelor party stories and enjoyed hearing how some folks taught arithmetic to their little tykes with minis.)

 

Gah! I want to throw more money at the project but seeing how I'm already buying a Vampire set plus bonuses for a friend, who would otherwise miss out on it, I'm forced to choose what I can really afford for myself on this luxury good. Hearing about Update #40 that allows Sophie to be switched out doesn't help! ^^' I was all ready to pull the trigger to switch her out and then saw #49 (?) with that fantastic piece of art by Talin and it threw me right back on the fence with her... With no PayPal and all sorts of options in front of me, I fear that I'll still be in the final hour deciding on what my final pledge amount is going to be.

 

Again, it's been a fantastic ride! Let all of us reach the finish together and celebrate all across the world! Cheers and good luck, my fellow backers!!!

Congrats to Reaper and it's fans on the whole Kickstarter project. I have said for a long time something had to be done about the skyrocketing cost of minis. I am glad to see Reaper went to bat to do something and even happier that Gamers proved they are willing to help make it happen.

With all these dragons... has anyone else thought of the Fireborn RPG anytime recently? It's an RPG where the PCs are dragons (by default). Okay all, I'm off to KS to break my F5 key. I swear that Sohie art is so educational as I don't think I've used the F5 key as much as I have on a website before. At least, not anytime this season. That art is a nice reminder. ^^

ONLY $441??? Slacker. Our family has 2 Vampire pledges going (we have two different Amazon accounts) and all the extras (well, the majority of the extras) and overall we are sitting at $600 right now. (Plus I've gone to eBay and found a few that I've been dying for- like the discontinued hedgehog!!) So I think grand total our miniature bill (or giant bill depending on how you look at it) is sitting at $700. Wish I could spend the extra $100 here to get what I really want (the hedgehog) but alas.... no such luck. ::(:

So I have to attend a very good friend's wedding at 6 pm. I'm basically gonna be checking the KS and Reaper sites en route to the wedding and whilst I'm waiting. I'm gonna be that rude a-hole on his phone.

My friend's wife is in labour. Asked me if I wanted to come wait in the hospital.

 

Looked at clock.

 

Looked at Kickstarter website.

 

Decided to make it up to him by paying for the kid's college or something later.

Under an hour to make 6 grand and reach the Kaladrax Goal! Sadly, I'm pretty much all in at $380.

 

Edit:

I wonder if Reaper has an extra crazy goal for the last half hour? :upside:

Alright, I upped my pledge by 12.5% to $450 to help you guys make the big "C'thuluhu" thing, which looks enough like a mindflayer monster for me to buy it.

      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.
