Bones Kickstarter #2 Discussion

Recommended Posts

 

19k comments, in one line one after each other *shakes head*.

 

Wonder why that system is that bad?

 

How would you make the system better? What would implementing those suggestions entail?

I could be wrong, but didn't the KS comments section used to be at least broken down by page? Just that one, singular change would make a huge difference. You could then easily reference "oh, that was back on page xxxx of the comments", and you'd have to sift through just a handful of comments to find it. I mean, if the Updates section breaks down into pages, why not the comments?

 

Does it seem like the pledge dollars have gone up at a slightly less glacial pace in the last 24 hours than they had in the past few days?

 

Friday afternoon and weekend days are usually slow, especially early in a project. Compounded with the huge opening the KS had, and this was primed to be a slow weekend.

The rest of EP#1 and ... I'm not a fan of the goroloth (or acquatic monsters in general), but the rest of it is making me drool. I mean, mushroom men, come on!! Awesome!

Sandra Garrity's apparently unnamed Female Halfling Thief needs to make an appearance

 

http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/female halfling/sku-down/02676#detail/IG_2770_1

 

EDIT: Looking at Talin's concept art she's an updated Elia Shadowfeet

http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/shadowfeet/sku-down/02058

Extensive perms were obviously on the way out by 2003

Awesome, thanks for the links, Nocturne! I'd seen the original Elia, but not Sandra's version, which tbh I like better (no offense to the original artist!). :D

 

I was actually pleased as punch when a female gnome (the female gnome bard) was included in the first KS; she's just about the spitting image of my halfling rogue (she was raised by gnomes, so she's adopted more of their characteristics anyways). I do agree that more female halflings would be nice, but more halflings in general would be cool too. For example, Oathsworn had a halfling ninja that could easily pass for either male or female, given how loose the clothing was.

 

On a different topic, one mini I'm rather surprised we haven't seen Bonesified yet is a Grim Reaper (I suppose there's Mr. Bones, but to me he's more cute than menacing :) ). It's Halloween time, they're named after it, seems like a good mini to include. They've got some pretty sweet "Angel of Death" sculpts in their store. :D

 

Huzzah!

--OneBoot :D

 

EDIT: DING! Update time!! :D

 

Ooo, some pretty awesome additions to the Core Expansion.

Woo!

 

Question about the latest update:

 

Once we hit 1.6M Does that mean that the Expansion #1 is now "full"? You will not be adding additional miniatures to it correct?

I believe that to be the case, yes. A lot of those figures are larger, and it gets harder to break even as it grows.

Buglips, just want to make clear I meant no disrespect to female goblins.

 

 

That's good. Because they can be pretty mean. You know why most of the goblins adventurers fight are male? Because risking death in the field is sometimes better than staying home. Grubella is on here 8th husband now, and he's been trying to get slain by adventurers for months!

 

The sad part to this tale: There is a goblin having trouble dying to adventurers. Doesn't he know he actually has to be involved in combat to die? Maybe the Goblins should take a lesson from the Starship Troopers universe. Instead of offering citizenship, they could use the slogans, "Service means divorce!" and "Today is a good day to die!"

 

Join the Goblin Infantry!

 

 

Would you like to know more?

Kobolds and mushroom men (and we didn't even have to wait for Mr. Bones to make it to the marsh). Now we just have to wait for the project total to reach it.

Yaaaaaaay!

New reveal is all sorts of Awesome. Prepare for a slew of pledges and also complaints that they need to get so much they don't want to get the new update. Well done Reaper Peeps. This update does not disappoint.

Necropolis 2? Skeletons, zombies, Judas, Naomi, Banshee, ghosts, ... Or are you not counting anything that's not an original Warlord SKU?

 

I don't think he's considering proxies. Also, Judas, Naomi, and the Banshee were in the first KS. I think he is only counting this one.

 

Frankly, I'm building my Necropolis army completely from Bones after this gets fulfilled. ::D:

      I was painting Kieran Tallowmire. I was quite apprehensive as I found that miniature to be quite daunting will all the detail (books, candle, familiar on shoulder ...). I first wanted him to be different ... so no grey robes, no blue robes ... I went for green, which totally did not work out. So he ended up with blue robes (was the easiest way to salvage the wreck that "dark green" had done).
      Of course, the way he is holding the book and his hand, he is conjuring something,  but if green had worked, I would not have had an idea what - a plant maybe? Blue robes - water mage, water elemental. So I remembered that somewhere in my stash of 3D print files, where was a baptismal font, which looked like it could be used with Kieran.
      The next idea was to get some water sprite / elemental that was conjured out of the font ... and with a 3D file you can scale and reduce the size, so that is what I did with a water elemental / Water snake I had.
      A couple of mishaps later (me using liquid water for the first time, for example, and discovering that my version dissolves normal plastic glue) ... this is the result: I really think I had some good ideas, I'm not sure if I'm satisfied with my execution - but as I usually strive for table-top quality, I think it's ok.
       
      The base is resin by Fenryll ... Thinking about using red on the runes outside the pentagram ... or do the blue, too? Or just leave them as they are?
       
      Criticism welcome.

      Some basic table-top paints here,  The owlbear paint is (more or less) a straight up copy of the Reaper website example but i think the base is interesting.  It starts off basically as a rock/gravel pile, and I thought it was rather boring so i turned it into the Owl Bear's cave floor covered in feces about an arms length deep. Practiced some sculpting on it. With P3 putty The big rocks were turned into Ogre skulls, a horse skull, and a face-down skeleton of some sad creature, all simmering in poo :)

       
      The Ankheg, it's always a balance of painting something like for max visual appeal or realism, went with the latter since something that just burst out of the ground would be pretty dirty, at least on the side it's digging with. This is my own work, did not copy anything so in that regard I'm pretty happy with it.

       
      For the back, went with a Game Color Dragon Green mixed with Filigree Silver, highlighted with a mix of bright yellow, Army painter Hemp rope, and a touch silver.

      The Owl Bear fur is  Black Base + Citadel Rhinox Hide ,Game-color Woodland Brown and Dessert Tan layered in. Wings are Stormy gray lightening out Rainy gray  on tips. For some reason this model was really east to paint ,  it never fought back like some of them do, (probably because i coped a picture ;)

      I don’t have the lot number yet. Also, this is my first post so guidance on posting conventions is welcome. 
       
      The Bones 4 haul was extraordinary!
       
      Edit: sized down. I’ll figure out how to get down to 150 kB later.
