Well, now that I've composed myself I can come here and make a post about the new reveal.

So . . . uh . . . if we selected our reward already, we can change that, right?

 

I mean, it's totally not like I'm thinking about switching my Reapercon sophie pledge to a pile of giants and dragons or anything. Totally not like that at all. I'm just doing, uh, research. Yeah? Strictly research, for informational purposes only. Curiousity, you might say.

I hope the tomb is full of new gravestones the way this is exploding now :P

I'm sure it will be, and apparently there is more than one level in the crypt, but getting down that deep might be a struggle.

So exactly how deep are the trays on the carrying case?

The numbers would disagree with you kind sir. ::):

Well if it is placed at ~500k we'll get there in good time before the close. Considering other big kickstarters have gotten crazy bumps in the last few days I can see this one completely blowing up if there are bunches of "free" goodies in there. Besides there just has to be something amazing for opening that thing.

 

To whoever wonders, they just gave some really good comparison shots on the kickstarter comments:

So, I have to ask. Will the Sophie Set ever go on sale again? I officially can't afford Vampire + Sophies + Extras, barring some sort of miracle. At this point, even snagging an Urban Legend's gonna be a tight squeeze.

Nice i was wondering if we would see an add on for some of the non-boxset dragons. I think I may hold off on upping my pledge until after Gencon. That way i can raise it by one big amount instead of upping it every couple of days for smaller amounts.

Are there any more painted versions of those dragons around? Or a photo of them next to a mini or two for size comparison?

Yes. Click the large "manage your pledge" button, and adjust to suit your needs. And I promise none of us every saw you pledging for plastics. Cross my heart.

So exactly how deep are the trays on the carrying case?

1" foam, with a .25" backing, amking the 3 layers 3.75" deep, filling perfectly the 3.76" interior.

What are the compartment dimensions? Is this the same case as the one the figures are packed in? Is he really going to put custom trays/these trays for this case up on his site or not?

Just wondering how much the figures at the vampire pledge level overlap with your collections of reaper minis.

I collect primarily Reaper and have cases and cases full assorted heroes and monsters stretching back more than a decade.

However despite the amount of Reaper metal occupying my basement, I only have 6 minis that I will end up with doubles of:

 

02833: Medusa

03517: Mockingbeast

03461: Goldar the Barbarian - mine has a broke ax so i am happy to get another

02712: Eyebeast

Ebonwrath

The Strumpet from the townsfolk stretch goal

 

I have copies of everything that isn't a bones exclusive or a new sculpt. Multiples of many.

 

I'm in for a lot , more to support reaper than for the minis. I don't need more minis. I just want bones to be successful because its great for reaper and the hobby.

Well, consider this. Suppose you have your very nice metal paladin, and you want to base him such that he's standing on the head of the evil orc he just dispatched. You *could* shell out the 6-8 bucks for a metal orc. Or, if you magically end up with Orcpocalypse, you have a whole batch of the guys just begging to be easily snipped apart.

 

See, they're not plastic minis. They're basing supplies. :)

I may end up bailing and save for a hypothetical, future Chronoscope Bones KS.

 

UNLESS the crypt is actually some kind of TARDIS, and leads to chronoscope bones :-0

Why not just figure out what your absolute maximum budget is, and pledge now to that amount? That's what I did.

 

We both know that there will likely be way more than we can actually afford by the time this is done, so set it to what you can comfortably spend, and figure out what to buy with it later.

      There is a page where I can see the detailed images and the names of each miniatures in Bones 4.

      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?

       The Deck of Many is a series of 5e reference cards for Monsters, NPCs, Conditions and Weapons.
      The Deck of Many is a tool used to assist Game Masters in their role-playing campaigns, freeing them from traditional reference books and allowing them to only bring the references they need. Each card features original artwork and easy to reference information. Should we be successful, all funds raised from this campaign will go towards producing the 4 decks and other campaign rewards.
       
      Starting price: $16 for your choice of 1 deck including shipping to U.S & CAN

      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.

      Kitsune close-up:



      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.
