Last Knight

[Chatterbox] Where we discuss many things...

21 posts in this topic

...not just the recently completed Bones Kickstarter II.

 

We had a lot of good conversations going in the sadly locked Discussion Thread, so we should keep them going! This isn't a place for random nonsequiters and tangents... but every good conversation should have an implicit level of drift, so while we start here with Bones-type talk, we shouldn't feel obligated to keep it on that subject.

 

Especially since that would quickly get us exiled to the Bones forum.

 

But on the subject of Bones Kickstarter II, Bryan has created an official Q&A thread over in the Bones forum, and the subject of "what did we not see in this Kickstarter" came up - what stretch goals did we miss? To which Bryan replied...

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

That would be cheating. But in addition to the Wayne Reynolds Highland Encounter, Talin did an Encounter set.

Since off-topic discussion in that thread is discourage, I thought I would come over here for my response...

 

 

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO WHY GOD WHY WE MISSED TALIN ART NONONONONONONONO

 

Bryan's Q&A thread here: http://www.reapermini.com/forum/index.php?/topic/52101-questions-about-the-kickstarter-now-that-it-is-over/

 

The massive, lamented Bones KS II thread here: http://www.reapermini.com/forum/index.php?/topic/51617-bones-kickstarter-2-discussion/

 

Will Talin's Oni be coming out (either Bones or metal)...?

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

 

YES. SHE MUST BE MINE, HUZZAH!

 

ETA: She's one I really hope gets the double treatment, Bones and metal, but if I had to pick one... mrrrgh. I think, if she's Large, I'd prefer Bones. If she's human sized, I'd prefer metal...

I hope that Oni also will come in the bones variety! She's pretty amazing.

Bones or metal, the Oni is a definite must have for me.

Totally agreed. I'd like her in Bones as a large for price point; she'll be $10+ in metal.

 

I'll still get her, but in Bones I can get one for my daughter to paint, too... ^_^

 

Of course, in metal we'll see her before Bones III/2015...

Well, Reaper doesn't NEED a kickstarter to make a new bones figure. The had ~30 before the first one after all. We just need to convince them to get that Oni made. I need that mini.

 

It might be a good test case, see how well a non-kickstarted bones figure sells post kickstarters.

The art has been assigned to a sculptor! Minidom is at hand!

 

That said, while Reaper is more than capable of making Bones without the impetus of a Kickstarter, look at how long the process takes. Yes, we'll eventually see Bones as a self-sustaining line, not requiring Kickstarter funds to get things moving - KS2 may even have tipped it over that edge - but it was months after Bones 1 wrapped up before the rest of the original 29 were available for retail, and these were minis for which they already had the molds (thanks to Legendary Encounters).

 

Hopefully an additional plastic injection machine, trained personnel, and the ability to make Bones minis in Texas will cut down that wait... but I imagine it'll still be a while...

 

(Absolute pie in the sky, dream that little dream idea: the oni-monk is what we were working towards at the end of the KS2, and if we'd hit Cadiritih's goal of an extra $150k, she would have been added to the Core set...)

I thought it might be nice to discuss which kickstarted figures were on your personal request list.

 

I asked for more animals. I got a bunch (I still want some herd animals though [i'm thinking the Gorgon will be seeing double duty as Bessie the cow]).

I asked for an Ankheg, I got a beautiful one.

Chimera? Check.

Cavalry? And how!

Angels? Prayers answered!

Centaurs? (and both genders, heavily armoured, AND free in the core?) Awesome!

Bulette? Bu-yeah!

Gelatinous Cube? Sluurp!

Half price paints? Colourful!

Otyugh? Oh yeah!

 

And those were just the ones I remember asking for. I didn't ask for a Slaad, but I love having one. I didn't ask for a Terrasque, but I wasn't kidding when I said I'd buy one if Reaper made one. I didn't know what a Raster was, now I can't wait to get one and convince a DM to let me have one for a steed. A huge diorama I can steal pieces of whenever players are exploring ruins? Yes please.

 

I could go through the rest of the stuff, the vast majority of which I really like, but those are just some of the highlights.

 

Reaper, giving us what we want since...well, since we started asking.

Mouselings, Sophie, more giants, more dragons, scenery (modern, scifi, fantasy), scenic bases... Yay for those as requested.

 

However a couple of notable absences from my requests were Gauth (for the 2nd time), and supply and treasure laden pack mules/horses and carts/wagons.

Gee Girot, it's too bad I can tell you weren't at all excited or anything by what Bones II had to offer. :poke:

 

I totally want to see a mounted scorpion cavalry. This is a thing that must happen.

 

Huzzah!

Oooh they're comin! Basically I'm creating a conversion kit for the first one and then making some sort of effort to reproduce it. Maybe I'll see if Dadcubed and I can work something out. Actually... this may have just given me a good reason to go ahead and buy a metal one so I can get going on this little venture.
