future bones dragon prices----- after kickstarter

51 posts in this topic

So lets look to the future, There is a dragon being made in bones plastic. I am going to assume multipiece so assembly is required. What would the possible price point be for such a dragon.

 

OR asked another way- how good a deal is the $10 I would spend today compared to March

Reaper already answered this question in the other kickstarter thread, as best they could since manufacturing details still have to be worked out. They expected the post kickstarter price to be somewhere in the $19.99 to $24.99 range.

 

So yeah, the kickstarter price for the dragon is a darn good deal. Best to increase your pledge now. :)

My bad. When I saw there were 19 pages about kick starter discussion, I thought this was a enough of a BONES qustion to ask

Yeah... based on what I know about the dragon and about Bones, I was thinking about $25 to $30, ballpark figure. Makes me wonder howthehell Reaper is making any money on the Kickstarter deal... I'm getting so much crap for my pledge, I'm kind of starting to feel like I'm cheating or something.

You have no idea how much thought and preparation went into making this work out well for everyone involved. : ]

 

You go ahead and get your great deal. We'll be getting the production of this line in high gear. It works well for both of us.

Thank you. After all the reshuffling Tre Manor has had to do to make HIS Kickstarter work out, I feel better about that. I'd never have bought all the Bones, but I very much want to support the goal.

 

Not that I'm turning DOWN the Bones.... :poke:

They certainly try to be nice. If you hang around long enough you'll notice that some of the Reaper Crew even have fanclubs.

Fanclubs? I don't know anything about no stinking fan clubs...

Please do stick around! They have a small but very good community here. If I had to guess, Darsc Zacal wasn't trying to be snappy or anything...just informative.

 

By the way, kudos on the Fibonacci square avatar!

I imagine that Reaper, like Mantic not so long ago are concentrating on covering their costs much more than making a profit. With bones figures equalling 1/3 of the product that's being shipped right now, our pledges aren't there for profit, but a giant interest-free loan. I don't think hitting a million is out of the question when all is said and done. My only problem will be how to cover everything I want, since we're still near the start and there's about $400 worth of stuff I want to get already....

I'm sure there are some things we can all cut out of our lives to save a little money. Coffee. Cigarettes. Meals out. Food in general. Electricity. Organs. Children.

 

I bet I could get the $1000 I want easily for my 3 year old. He's very cute and well behaved. :devil:

      Bones 3 had a bit of an unfortunate arrival time for me, coming in the middle of an unplanned move.  It may have taken me a bit, but I'm finally getting started on some of the pieces!

      I even took them with me for some down time on our yearly beach vacation, though my set-up here is not very scenic:



      That was last week, and now they're a bit closer to completion, with some details and fixes, basing, and sealing to be done.  Some Bones 3 furniture snuck in as well:

      Hi friends:
      After hard months of working, we´ve improved the game Iron League Blacks Stadium and the art has changed. Mechs and miniatures are amazing now. The board game has a new full cooperative campaign with map, scenary and enemies generation.
      The competitive mode continues and has been improved.
      So, we also want to change the title of the game, and this is:
      IRON WARS
      In July on Kickstarter. Soon more news.

      Whilst waiting for my Bones 3 to brave the perilous journey across the sea to the EU I have decided to paint up other models from other kick staters. Not only to play with but to try and make some inroads into the "pile" of 20 models. 
       
      Here are three such models from a recent Kickstarter by Thunderchild Miniatures. These snails inhabited an underground world under what's left of a post apocalyptic modern world. 
       
      I like these models as the are very quirky and have some character.  Hopefully I can do them justice. 
       
      First of all they have been washed, sprayed grey and then I have given the metal areas a thinned coat of black. 
       

       

       
      The biggest of the three, the snail is a single casting. There is a separate throne to this model. 

       

       
      as always comment welcome.

      Just launched a Kickstarter this morning for something called SnapDice.  In my opinion -- and I guess I might be biased :) -- I think these are coolest dice trays ever.  The steel dice snapping to the magnets is so addicting.  You can use these with any game that uses dice (d6 or polyhedral), but honestly, you'll probably just get stuck rolling them over and over for fun. :)
       
      Here is the Kickstarter page: 
      Check out people's reactions when they first rolled the dice just a little ways down the project page...pretty fun. :)
       
      The magnets in the board do not affect the randomness of the rolls.  It isn't rigged.  In fact, we custom engineered the dice to be perfectly balanced (the center of gravity of each die is within .001mm of perfect).  So, this dice set will actually be the most accurate and more fair of any set you own. We are also offering a full polyhedral set of steel dice as well. :)
       
      Hope you like it!
