Now that most of the Chronoscope sculpts I truly wanted in Bones are becoming Bones, I'd hope that a Chronobones Kickstarter was made up of mostly new sculpts. New variants of existing stuff would be awesome, but truly new stuff, too.

I'd like to get my Bones figures from THIS Kickstarter before I start pledging for a new one, but if, come next year, there's a Chronoscope Kickstarter, I'm definitely in. If there might be a little crossover with some of the figures from the Savage Worlds line, that'd be even better. :D

There are even a few miniatures from the Dark Heaven and Warlord lines that could still have value for some of the genres represented in Chronoscope -- for instance, a few monsters that could work well as alien horrors, such as the Bathalians or the Darkspawn.

My main concern, though, is that I'd really, REALLY like to see more in the way of ADVERSARIES in the Chronoscope line -- cheap encounters for my heroes. I'm willing to pay more for metal to get a special figure for my PC. But if I want a horde of zombies, a gang of thugs, or a swarm of aliens to harass my heroes, that's when plastic can be a real budget-saver.

Bathalians in plastic would be amazing aliens! Fishmen and zombies are already in Bones... and giant rats! What else makes for good pulp enemies?

Lizardmen (like the swamp things & Ben Siens sculpts)

All of the vermin from that KS add-on. Giant spiders. Ghosts. The Lovecraft add-on.
"War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself."
John Stuart Mill
English economist & philosopher (1806 - 1873)

If you were being even a bit light-hearted in your approach to horror, the two-headed ogre would be in, too. And actually all the golems could get a turn.

Anyone remember that movie where dragons invaded modern London? Reign of Fire!

If Reaper made an actual H.P. Lovecraft mini (like, The Man himself) for Chronoscope...I would even splurge and buy that in metal for use as a token when playing Arkham Horror.

Now that I think of it...I would love to see a set of minis based on the characters from some of Lovecraft's works (i.e. Randolph Carter) or the Arkham Horror board game characters (yes, I know...licensing).

Depending on what figurines are being offered, probably either D or E.

I'd pledge E without hesitation. F maybe, depending on what the extra-special stuff was.

D or E, depending on my finances at the time. I don't mind have multiples of the same 'hero' mini because I usually have two or three ideas for how to paint it but only the one mini.


I write a blog about gaming. Sometimes.

I think a good mix from every product line is a good idea. And I'm still hoping for both Warlord PDF Rulebooks.

 

Reaper want's to be bigger with Bones KS II. I do not think they will get it with Chronoscope alone. But it has many beautiful minis.

I would pledge if they created some kind of game system to use them in.  Even if it was tongue and cheek, which it might have to be if you are going to square characters like Edna the Cat Lady against Zulu Warriors. 

 

If the rules were quick and easy to teach it could be bigger than Munchkin.

 

I look at all the really cool minis in Chronoscope but there is no reason for me to buy them.  If there was a cool party-game/wargame hybrid the way that Munchkin is a party-game/dungeon-crawl hybrid, and inexpensive bones figures, I would start collecting and painting Chronoscope this instant.

I'd certainly be in for E+.  If Reaper approached a Chronoscope KS in a similar manner to Bones II, I'd drop funds on a core set plus any add-on sets that I could use in games or otherwise struck my fancy.  A focus on utilitarian figures (townsfolk and bystanders) along with minion-type figures that a GM would want to have multiple copies of would be nice.  The only thing I don't see myself pledging for is scenery/set dressing pieces.  I use minis during gaming but the maps are 2D -- I just don't have any conceivable use for shipping containers, walls, etc.  Cool stuff for the folks who want them, but they're just not for me.

I wouldn't be interested in the least bit, my taste is strictly fantasy when it comes to figures. We play Pathfinder and use the figures I paint at the table so to me Chronoscope or any other setting/genre wouldn't be a wise investment.


Minis finished: 28 and only hundreds 20 more to go!
2014 Tally: 5
