Reaper Bones 3: Post-Kickstarter Discussion

Recommended Posts

I was tallying my pledge up and stopped at $500 to give myself plausible deniability . . .

My final total was just under $1100 US.  I don't even want to think about what the conversion to CDN dollars is.

KS3 is the most I have spent on a KS to date. And I was doing my best to keep my spending in check so I would have funds available for the Legendary Encounters KS. Still, I am eagerly awaiting that campaign. This go, I got everything I wanted with no foreseeable future regrets. So I am very pleased. About the only thing I wavered on was a second Mal. Practically won out. One will be hard enough to store, much less two.

In the end frugality won out.  As nice as Mal is/was I just could not justify spending over $125 (shipping and conversion to CAN$ added the extra) on a single mini.  I also found very little in the core set I wanted beyond the Ogres, Pretty Deadly and Sophie so that was out too.  in the end I bought the add-ons Frost Giant Warriors, T'Raukzul, Frost Giant King & Queen, Solar, Fire Giant Jailer, Kyra and Lavarath, 3-Inch Bases, Kyphrixis (my wife thought he was cute as it reminded her of a Copper dragon ally our D&D group had for quite some time - Janderberris King of the High Forest!), Froghemoth and Goremaw (again my wife was impressed with this one too - she said it looked terrifying).  I was going to add Stormwing but figured with all the dragons I have got over the last 2 KSs it and T'Raukzul would just be redundant. 

 

As an added bonus the $125 I didn't spend on Mal is going to our new bedroom furniture fund!  After 12 years of marriage (today is the day in fact although we celebrated yesterday) I figure my adoring (and very patient) wife deserves to replace our 40+ year old dressers that are currently falling apart.  IKEA here we come! :)

The PM mush have closed about 5 minutes after I made my last purchase cause I went back to add something and it was gone.  My final pledge ended up being:

 

Core set

Shub Niggurath

Dagon

Marthrangul

Diabolus

Viridius

Graveyard expansion

Mal'drakar

Mystic Circle, and Kyra and Lavawrath (just under the gun apparently)

I'm pretty sure I spent less on this one than the previous two Bones KS.

But I got all the giants. I LOVE Reaper giants.

 

I know I spent less on KS3, than on KS2, but I had to continuously remind myself to keep it that way, lest my figmentia run away with my wallet. :wacko:

As I pledged nothing for BOnes 1 and a buck for bones 2 (which I regret now) anything here is a huge jump from that. Overall I spent about 500 bucks on Bones III

Looking at my total, it looks like I was pretty reasonable, a bit over $200.... Until you realize that my good lady put in a similarly sized order.

 

I am kind of amazed that I didn't get the Sledgehammer - but the game I would most likely want it for... we have been running without miniatures. (But sometimes we do wear silly costumes... in public places.)

 

The Auld Grump - who may yet lose the battle against the Sledgehammer... he really, really likes that model....

This is my feeling about Mal'drakar - I love the model but haven't a use nor storage/display space for it.  It is far too beautiful to leave in its box (like DDS2 is doing right now :down:  ).  I might lose the battle and order it but that is far, far into the future imo.

 

 

Oh and I endorse the wearing of silly hats! :bday::blues:

I went I'm for it since that artist has normally very pricey stuff. Also at least while the KS was going on they couldn't confirm it would be Reaper retail since it was a cooperative project. I don't even have a game for it (gnomes make mechanical stuff, right?)

This was my train of thought as well.

All of the dragon. Including her Five-headed Majesty. And scenery and ... I have no idea what we spent.

Do know I'm not going to run out of stuff to paint this year. Might not run out next year, either. I'm looking forward to it. ^^;

      A Song of Ice & Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game is a competitive miniatures game for two or more players. Each player controls one of the Great Houses of Westeros, commanding battlefield units, recruiting legendary Heroes, and manipulating the political stage, in the attempt to claim the greatest prize of all: The Iron Throne. Featuring House Stark and House Lannister, the Starter Set comes with over one hundred amazing, preassembled miniatures that are ready to play out of the box! All-new sculpts are based off original art created for the game by our crew under the direct supervision of George R.R. Martin and Dark Sword Miniatures, to ensure that the game delivers what fans have been envisioning for years.
      The Stark vs Lannister Starter Set is a perfect introduction to a new miniatures game. With accessible and streamlined gameplay designed by Eric M. Lang and Michael Shinall, A Song of Ice and Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game features 5 different Game Modes, Army Building and Customization options, and choices of Commanders and Attachments. This Set packs a lot of gameplay for 2 players!

      The loyal followers of the Direwolf Banner rally to defend the North! Miniatures come unpainted. Just before starting a game, players must build their armies, based on an agreed upon amount of points. Using these points, players forge the core of their army with powerful  Combat Units, such as the Stark Sworn Swords or Lannister Guards into their army. Each of these units has its own strengths and weaknesses.

      3D Render of the Lannister Guards. 2 copies of this unit are included in the Starter Set!  
      Combat Unit cards  
      Attachments
      A player can also augment these units with powerful Attachments, which range from generic additions, like the Lannister Guard Captain, to legendary figures such as Ser Gregor Clegane: The Mountain.

      This Kickstarter campaign is a collaboration between legendary game designer Jennell Jaquays and sculptor Darcy Perry, following the appearance of ducks in the previous Star Hat Miniatures Kickstarter: Delvers Lost in the Dungeons of Doom III. 
      This is also an opportunity for YOU to contribute! With the Legendary Hero pledge, YOU can collaborate with us to bring new characters to the Quack Keep module and gaming table.
      The Module  
      This Kickstarter will provide funds for Quack Keep - inspired by classic game adventure modules of the past but written to be more approachable for a new generation of role-players and workable with a wide range of game rules thanks to the 5th Wall Generic Rank System. It even comes with a fold-out GM screen as a cover!
       
      The title is a nod to Quag Keep, the first novel based on a roleplaying game, published by Andre Norton in 1978 - around the same time that Jennell Jaquays began producing Advanced Dungeons & Dragons and Runequest modules for Judges Guild. The Caverns of Thracia and Dark Tower are both best-selling examples of her early work, both still in print after almost 40 years.  
      The later inspired Legendary Duck Tower and other Tales, which included a ducky-pastiche of her original Dark Tower cover. It was due to this and her work for Chaosium that Jennell Jaquays "was pretty much labeled as that designer and artist who did the ducks."
       
       
       
      Eldritch SwanSong.

      The Grey Moulter.  Join us for an adventure with Ducks Lost in the Dungeons of Doom IV: Quack Keep!
      Legendary Duck! YOU be the HERO! Stretch Goals
      There is a Stretch Goal unleashed for every 1k funding goal reached and each one is a game changer: a new Duck will appear! Either a new Duck Hero or Legendary Duck will be made available for you to choose as part of your pledge.
      1k Stretch Goal Unleashed: Oduck!  
      2k Stretch Goal Unleashed: The Quack Knight!  
       
       
      Glen Fidduck is almost a must-have for me ;)

      About this project
      Samples of painted resins supplied by Studio Giraldez. Resin masterclass models supplied unpainted Strap in and blast off! The Starfinder Roleplaying Game puts you in the role of a bold science-fantasy explorer, investigating the mysteries of a weird and magical universe as part of a starship crew. Will you delve for lost artifacts in the ruins of alien temples? Don rune-enhanced armor and a laser rifle to battle undead empires in fleets of bone ships, or defend colonists from a swarm of ravenous monsters? Maybe you'll hack into the mainframe of a god-run corporation, or search the stars for clues to the secret history of the universe or find brand new planets to explore. Whether you're making first contact with new cultures on uncharted worlds or fighting to survive in the neon-lit back alleys of Absalom Station, you and your team will need all your wits, combat skill, and magic to make it through. But most of all, you'll need each other.
      ADVENTURE: The Starfinder Adventure Pledge level is a great entry point for the start of your collection of Masterclass figures. This pledge includes 8 Kickstarter exclusives, including Candy cosplaying as Navasi and Cola cosplaying as Quig, along with heroes from the Pathfinder RPG Legacy Races. Also included is a gang of Space Goblin Zaperators. Customize your pledge with the added 6 Hero Slots and 4 Encounter Pack Slots. Also all unlocked Freebies!
      CAMPAIGN: The Starfinder Campaign Pledge level is the perfect pledge for the miniature enthusiast. This pledge includes 8 Kickstarter exclusives, including Candy cosplaying as Navasi and Cola cosplaying as Quig, along with heroes from the Pathfinder RPG Legacy Races. Also included is a gang of Space Goblin Zaperators. Customize your pledge with the added 12 Hero Slots, 6 Encounter Pack Slots, 2 Fleet Pack Slots, and 4 Creature Slots. Also all unlocked Freebies!
      Stretch Goals are items that unlock as the campaign reaches new heights. More options for heroes, encounter packs, creatures, and fleets will be revealed over time. There are three types of goals: Freebies, Optionals, and Social Media Stretch Goals.
      Freebies will be added to the Adventure Pledge and Campaign Pledge as soon as they unlock. Optionals will provide additional options to use on those Hero, Encounter Pack, Creature, and Fleet Slots. Social Media unlocks depend on the number of shares the following post receives on Paizo and Ninja Division’s Facebook pages.
      How the Starfinder Masterclass Miniatures Slot System Works
      To offer the most customizable pledge rewards possible we have developed the Kickstarter Slot System. There are 4 kinds of Slots: Hero, Encounter Pack, Creature, and Fleet. The Adventure and Campaign pledges come not only with specific models but several types of Slots to customize the pledge. Every item option has a Slot type and cost. Additional Slots beyond those in the Adventure and Campaign Pledge can be purchased for the cost listed in the Additional Slots section. As the campaign progresses and more stretch goals are unlocked the type of Slot and cost of each unlocked model will be listed in the appropriate section.
      Freebie Stretch goals add one free model or upgrade to the pledge. Additional models of that unlocked Freebie may be purchased as listed in the appropriate section.
      HEROES: Each Hero represents an individual pulled from the varied Starfinder races, character classes, and themes. These heroes double as playable characters and non-player characters, providing numerous options for players and gamemasters alike!
      ENCOUNTER PACK: Encounter Packs include a mix of creatures and hero-like characters that the heroes may encounter in their adventures. Each pack is designed to supply figures for a standard encounter. More ambitious adventurers may encounter larger groups so it never hurts to get multiples of each encounter pack!
