Bones KS and Alternate Bits/Sculpts

11 posts in this topic

I looked to see if this question had been asked and answered but I couldn't find anything around or in the FAQ on the KS so, apologies if it has been asked an I'm just blind...

 

Will the miniatures from the Kicstarter come with the alternate pieces that the original metal mini's have? For example the Rosie, Chronotechnician can either be wielding a rifle or a giant wrench. Will the Bones that come from the Kickstarter have these alternate bits?

Very good question. The Derek Schubert hellborn wizard comes with a staff, crystal ball, and wand option in metal.

This was answered elsewhere. Can't remember if it was in the unsearchable unlinkable 30,000 ks comments or on the forum. The minis will be single piece without the extra bits, as shown. With the possible exception of some of the bigger dragons if the wings prove to be a molding issue.

Has to do with the way they're molded. More parts makes it much more expensive. Pretty much for the same reason we needed the kickstarter in the first place. Pity, but there you go. On the other hand, modding Bones is relatively easy.

Well, the beauty of Bones is the plastic is VERY easy to mess with and make alterations. A little green stuff can quickly alter a sculpt into something that suits your vision.

And with the price of em, it means that you can chop, cut, and mod to your hearts extent without your internal money manager freaking out. 8-)

 

Of course I had mine surgically removed years ago.....lol

Trepination. Not just for releasing cranial pressure anymore.

Well, after all the paint stuff that I didn't care about, there had to eventually be something that would upset me. I get why it is the way it is, but man, does that suck for Rosie, especially since they picked the generic big gun instead of the wrench.

This may be a bit of heresy, but you could order the wrench bit from the boneyard, and then replace the plastic gun with the metal wrench. I do stuff like this all the time.

Unfortunately, I believe this is also why the purple worm didn't get his tail...

      ZOMBICIDE: GREEN HORDE IS COMING!

This sequel to the smash hit Zombicide: Black Plague, will bring players back into a world of deadly medieval fantasy, this time filled with infected orcs and goblins who will put survivors to the ultimate test. This green menace is not only stronger than their human counterparts, but they also tend to gather into massive hordes that ambush the survivors when they least expect it. Uncover the many surprises the Green Horde has in store for you!
        Stay tuned to CMON.com, Twitter, and the CMON and Guillotine Games Facebook pages for updates on this new menace that threatens anything and anyone that stands in its way. If Zombicide: Black Plague gave you nightmares, Zombicide: Green Horde will make them come true.

      I had a bunch of new figures arrive the other day. I am trying to decide which set to paint up first. Any thoughts?
      Here are the new fishmen, a mind flayer, and an evil cleric of the sea:

      I'd like to paint up this guy to be a green and/or bronze dragon:

      A storm and a cloud giant:

      Two more dancing girls:

      A marid and a hippocampus chariot:

       
      So, which one first?

      For my latest group of models I wanted to paint some monsters- preferably with tentacles.  I thought this "roper" would be easy enough but I decided to spice it up a little on the base.  The 'shrooms are just little acorns The kids helped me collect last fall (painted the rounder ones as pumpkins).
       
      I really don't know if I put the tentacles in the right spots but I like how dynamic they make this model look.

      A news post on the Eclipse Phase site just announced a Kickstarter campaign for a second edition of the main rules.
      No exact date yet, but they're planning to release in October, so very soon.
       
       
      I will be backing this one.
