If Reaper launched a Chronoscope bones it would be the first Bones I backed. I missed the last two because I was broke....

There have been various calls for Chronoscope Bones.

Let's be conservative in our estimation of Chronoscope popularity and assume that the rewards never got more than a couple stretch goals past a "Vampire"-like level. Not counting upgrades, what level would you pledge at?

A-$1: Thanks
B-$15: 15 basic Chronoscope figs
C-$28: Some sort of Chronoscope related Sophie
D-$60: 35 Chronoscope figs in bones with some being slightly larger or more elaborate.
E-$100: 30 figs+ 15figs + Sophie + another bonus 20-30 figs of some sort via stretch goals.
F-$100+: E + special prizes (green Master, banner, tour, custom design, etc)

Apologies in advance that the categories are arbitrary and simplified as I only included levels that have had significant participation.

I'd be in for E

 

It would depend on the figures.  If they were all existing figures just convereted to Bones, not much.  Possibly C, although it would have to be a pretty exceptional Sophie to justify $28 for one figure.  I've already got copies of all the existing Chronoscope figures I want in metal and other than possibly the NOVA figures, I can't think of any I would want multiples of.   If we were talking about all new figures I'd be muich more likely to go E or even F.

 

EDIT:  Wow!  I just realized this thread is a couple years old.  Not sure my answer matters any more at this point.  :unsure:

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.

 

Doesn't Pathfinder tech level go as high as gunpowder? I can totally get behind you on the sentiment anyway, lots of people I game with don't like muddying up their fantasy setting.

Yes, there are gunslingers if you want them in your game. My group usually doesn't have them around.

Pathfinder will support higher tech, if your GM permits it.

 

Sci-fi has been a part of fantasy since Barrier Peaks, and while it's not everyone's cup of tea, it is nice to have it as an option for the players that do enjoy it.

What's really funny about this post is that I've changed my mind since December 2013 because of this forum and the people around here. I'm finding beauty in so many different genres of figures now, as I mentioned over in the Infamy KS thread. It's opened my eyes and my tastes have evolved so that even if I don't "play" with the figures, I can enjoy painting them up and telling a story with them in project pieces such as vignettes and dioramas or even nicely based single pieces.

Part of fantasy since at least Andre Norton's Witch World stuff. And part of published fantasy gaming since at least Swords & Sorcery. And there was a Nazis versus fantasy troops scenario in Strategic Review #5.

 

Not my favorite mix, but Brian Daley's Coramonde books were brilliant. If I had a GM that could manage that, I'd play it in a heartbeat.

 

TL:DR: Yes, but....

I'd back it. I'd buy most of the Chronoscope figures if they were just regular released.

 

I think I have all the WWII soldiers, all the kroids, all the cowboys, steampunk and superhero up to mid 2012.

I'd be in for $100 easily and would gleefully go in for $50 each for pulp and steam punk expansions.

It depends but I'd see myself plunking $100 at least.

Same. Probably closer to 150, like with CAV.

$200 at least. Maybe double that if there were new models paints and cases. I need more cases.

There are currently 345 Chronoscope figures, including the ones which have already been Bonesified (not sure how many that is).

 

Is that enough to run a full Bones Kickstarter on?

Some humans would do anything to see if it was possible to do it. If you put a large switch in some cave somewhere, with a sign on it saying 'End-of-the-World Switch. PLEASE DO NOT TOUCH', the paint wouldn't even have time to dry.

I believe so. After all, we're speculating a much smaller scale Kickstarter than the previous general/Dark Heaven/Warlord Kickstarters were, and anyway, did either of them reach 345 unique sculpts?

CAV was pretty successful; are there 345 CAV sculpts?

It might make for an interesting small scale project, IMO.
