Kaladrax looks smaller by picture, but at the same time, his body and face are presented at forward angles, whereas nethyrmaul is presented almost entirely facing straight to the side. So they're about the same size, or kaladrax is -slightly- bigger.

I still keep looking up at the KS tally to see if it's going up... :down:
Be glad we got that, Reaper jealously guards it's sales data. Understandable though, that is valuable info..

 

 

Well, that bit of data was freely available on both Kickstarter and Kicktraq, but it was still swell of them, and Kit in particular, to provide the widget.

 

And I still look at it for a new total every time I refresh... ;p

For you painters out there, what are your thoughts on the paint sets? I'm thinking of upping for sets 1 and 2, 3 and 4 don't look like they'd be that useful. I'm not much of a painter and I have no idea how far the paint will go. Unrealistic to think you can paint all of vampire level with the 2 sets?

I think sets 1 & 3 are the most versatile so I will be getting those. Set 4 is for modern (which im going to try trade) and set 2 would be handy but I dont think necessary.

If you don't have, and don't necessarily want a lot of paint, that's exactly what sets 1and 3 are designed for. Between them you get a nice spread of the basic colours, a couple of metallic paints, and a sealer to help preserve your paint jobs.

 

If you were going to add one more, it would depend on what you're after. 4 is a wider variety of colours by far. Most of 2 is set up using the Reaper triad system, so you'll find three of the sets of three to be fairly similar to each other. I want 'em, but I will sooner turn down new miniatures than new paint. If you want a few more paints, get 4, order a few extra bottles direct from Reaper, or consider the Heavy Gear paint set.

 

As for will they be enough to paint all the Bones you'll get... The possible problem you'll have is you're likely to use a few bottles more than others. If you only have one or two skin colours, you could possibly use that up. Ditto if there's a particular colour you use for uniforms or just because you like it. Brown goes on wood, leather, dirt and a few other things, so that's another you could run through if you only have one or two to use. If you use white a lot to mix lighter versions of colours you could end up using more Han you might expect, but it could be enough. If you use it on every figure, the sealer probably won't do them all.

 

Basically I think the total volume of the paint in he sets might be able to cover the minis, but you won't end up using all the colours equally so you could run out of some while others are half full. Also if you got some of the big dragons and such, those will use a lot more paint.

 

If you want to try to stretch your paint, here's a few tips. Search for wet palette in the craft section of he forums. You can make a simpe one with paper towel and parchment or baking paper. Dispense paint in small amounts as you need it. Put cfc bulbs in any lamp you paint under, incandescently and other hot bulbs dry paint out quicker. Keep a t pin around to unclog the bottle nozzles. Unclogging by brute force squeezing can lead to paint spurting out everywhere!

man, that was crazy. I found out about it with less then 24 hours left on the clock. Thankfully I knew exactly how much money I had in my bank account at the time. Still wish i could have afforded more.

I think they're referring to my fan page at http://greg.botch.com/bones/ Mouseover for the best thumbnail I could find/make, and click through to Reaper's site where you can see other views, some painted.

Sorry if this has been answered, I did 4 searches and read though 40+ pages of this thread.

 

Basically I am keen to see the results of the 5 Design Your Own Miniatures pledges that were made. The process from idea to concept art to miniature.

 

Will we be kept up to date and if so, short of the entirety of these forums, is there a good place for me to keep an eye out?

Well, I guess that was quite the wild finish. I couldn't be around for the end, so I'm glad I can make some small adjustments in a couple weeks.

 

Congratulations on such a fantastic and successful project, Reaper folks!

 

I still checked the KS page last night. I'm an addict it seems....

Big kudos on this....and a pox on you for making it perfectly clear that I should donate more to attain every fig available. I can't pass up such a deal!!!

      There is a page where I can see the detailed images and the names of each miniatures in Bones 4.
      https://www.reapermini.com/Bones4
       
      Is there such a page for Bones 3? I got a lot of Bones 3 kickstarter minis but cannot figure out the name of miniatures in, say, Graveyard Expansion or Stoneskull Expansion.

      Hello again all.  I have to link these photos because Kelpies don't wear clothes down there in the seaweed!  I hope this post works, I've never linked images before.
      I started work on the first one thinking it was just something "throwaway" that I did to shake things up after all the undead I had been painting.  But when I started glazing the first one I was just so happy with how it was going.  Looking back now she actually could have used even more maybe, but I was happy with the work anyway.  The sand base not so much, the paint under the sand was too dark and shows through.
      The second one, leaning further over spreading her arms, was a mixed bag.  The base is much better, the sand looks more like its natural colour since the paint underneath was much lighter.  She had some wicked mold lines on her that were difficult to remove given her pose, both arms forward and the seaweed in between, etc.  One goes right across her chest above her breasts, her arms have several...  Anyway I just tried not to let them show in the pictures.  Her glazing was perhaps a little more rushed so it could have been better, but I was just so excited to post them because I was so happy with the work on the first one.
      Anyway please let me know what you think guys, I think I have done some great learning after attempting my first glaze only three or four miniatures ago.  I am also very impressed with my progress.  I have painted 7 minis since the beginning of August.  That is my most productive two and a half months ever!  I hope I can keep this up, I'm a beginner but have spent a lot on my setup already, I'd like to get enough done to say it was worth it!

      So, here's one I tripped over on Kickstarter:
       
      http://kck.st/2jgt2hT
       
      Basically, someone's doing miniatures... which didn't really grab me, until I saw the one for Edgar Allen Poe.  I'm from Baltimore, so I have to get that one.  And there's an HP Lovecraft, and some other cool stuff.  What do others think?

      Just a bunch of Eastern myth themed minis, mostly from Bones III and one Kenku/Tengu Monk from Stonehaven.

      Oh, and some Myconids from Ganesha Games and Bones III plant monsters.  More Mario than myth, I suppose.

      I like the male Kitsuine a lot more than I was expecting.  His pose, with all its swagger, adds a lot of character.  I also hadn't noticed the sake cup he was holding until I started painting.
