What miniatures were planned, sculpted that we DIDN'T get to see? :P

So, how long did it take you to clean up the PIE? It appears she was a step or two further away than good accuracy would permit.

So, how come the Dark Maiden didn't make the cut in the "angels" subset of expansion 1? Just curious. (Not that I need one now, I just picked up both non-Shipwreck Angel sculpts.)

I'd really rather not go into "why A and not B" kind of discussion.

Fair enough. On another note:

 

Will Talin's Oni be coming out (either Bones or metal), or will we have to wait for Bones 3?

first of all Bryan thanks for the pie bit, I got a great laugh out of it.
and secondly would you care to talk about the logistics of the pledge levels vs the first ks, fewer mini's per level and higher prices for addons and so on, even still I pledged more than I did for the first kickstarter. (I learned from the retail sting that I should get everything i want during the Ks)

 

(not complaining, let's just say I'm part cat and very curious) I jumped All over the large mini's dds and the not terrask and kraken an so on.

This project has a lot more individual models behind it - over 300 - with a lot more of them being bigger, compared with 240ish last time. So our tooling (making the molds) cost is higher, and we're going to be doubling up on some of the molds for joint US/China production, and overall, expect our cost breakdown to be front-loaded. We feel like we could have done more with the first project (like had USA molds budgeted) and felt that we could still provide a good value while also generating the benefits that we need to improve stability internally - like USA molds and paying for the building we already added...

Is the plan to have sculpts completed for the concept art only items before we have to commit our selections? Maybe with size & scale info for the items that don't have it?

I'm sure we're all wondering if there'll be any fallout from the Kevin White Barbarienne Nipplegate, but most would have the decency not to bring it up. Who is going to lose their job over this? Will there be a resculpt? Can you comment on this at all?

 

More seriously: the core pledge level features a dryad and two kelpies wearing not much at all, Bones I had a medusa and two demonesses (oh, and ghosts and a fire elemental). Is Reaper going to reconsider having nude/topless female monsters in future core sets, just in case people figure out nipples are niples are nipples?

The art has been assigned to a sculptor but I do not know if it is for Bones or Metal.

 

Right now we are hoping that Bones 1+2 will make Bones self sufficient and that instead of Bones 3 we can grow the line incrementally and focus our KS efforts on smaller projects that we've always wanted to do but could never fund.

 

Not to say we won;t Bones 3, but right now we are planning different projects to launch after fulfillment.

Like launching the game side of your business which I would love to work for? ::D:

 

Real Question. How long can we adjust our rewards in the pledge calculator? Also last time we could add more after the fact will that option be available again?

I'm glad to hear there will be more US molds. Are there plans to use this KS for more molding machines?

      I didn't have time to take better photos of this, too much going on recently to break out the DSLR, so I just used my phone camera. Not entirely enthused about the pics, but the mini itself was a BLAST to paint - probably my favorite non-dragon/large monster I've painted up so far! Once I got the color scheme thought through, I actually painted it up rather quickly. Tried a few new techniques on the stones on the base to make them seem a little more polished, which in person really stands out well :) Critiques?

      Painted this guy last weekend.  Highlighting is still a problem for me, but I still like the way he turned out.  I plan on touching up a lot of the paint next weekend, and eventually going over the parchment again to update the writing, but for now it will do.  Any tips on doing small runes or letters would be appreciated.  Thanks as always!

      Hajad is another sacrife to the toy box level painting (ie. ignore moldlines and any advanced techniques) in my quest to find the "right" zombie skin tone. This time based with 50/50 MSP Vampiric skin and VMC Basic Skin Tone. Covered with a wash of Army Painters blacker colored Dark Tone Ink. This is getting closer to what I want and might be right on with a wash using a brown ink like Strong Tone. I am going to find another sacrificial mini to try a 50/50 mix of the vampiric skin with VMV Dark Fleshwith a brown wash. I think that will give me the grey undead color I want ith enough caucasian skin to look like a fresher conversion to the zombie lifestyle. 
       

       
      I like this model, so will need to look at getting him in metal at some time. For now this one will be used as a ghost pirate in a Hero Kids adventure with my four year old.
       
      Thoughts and comments greatly appreciated.

      Orctober got an early start this year, mostly due to me pouring too much green paint when I was doing the base tones on my Bones III Monsters:

      First, the actual Orcs!


       

       

       

       

       
      I liked the thematic continuation of the Orcs from Bones 1. 


      Painted with them, and only cousins to the theme of Orctober, come the Hobgoblins!
       

       

       

       

       


      There were a few frustrating details on these sculpts, and some odd undercuts, but their paint scheme stayed relatively simple.  I don't use Hobgoblins often; I think the only time they've shown up in anything I've run has been premade adventures where they show up as random henchmen.

      The next set out of Bones 3, various monsters!


       
       
      The Carrion Worm really grew on me!



      The Temple Dragon is really cool.  I hadn't even realized until I was inking it that the base was a statue of a robed woman:


       

      The Manticore, who I was specifically hoping for before they announced it during the campaign.  It's a classic monster I didn't have a mini of!


       
       
      Lastly, the Giant Cobra.  Kind of rushed this one along...he also appears to hide from the camera focus.
