Reaper Bones 3: Post-Kickstarter Discussion

Recommended Posts

Well, my wife mostly isn't allowed to leave the house for at least another month or so, so if you're near Denver and are worried about that, send it my way. :)

Speculation: All hands on deck to assemble pledges and prep for shipping. This means almost everything else is getting ignored except for web orders and bill paying.

 

Speculation: Labels have been prepared, and the software sends out an automatic update. This does not mean items have been picked up for distribution yet.

 

On Facebook we've seen pictures of prepared pallets of packages ready for plastic wrapping prior to pickup by the package delivery company of choice. They've not yet gone out.

 

Patience.

 

Thus ends my alliteration.

Well, do you mind waiting until my wife's doctors say I can leave her alone for more than an hour or so?  Probably next April, maybe next Summer.

....Oh gosh, I just realized I need to get probably two more tool boxes to store all my new Bones in. This is going to throw off my whole sorting system! D: /drama

 

Huzzah!

It's already past the point where I needed a new ROOM to store my minis :lol:. Seriously, a few years ago I turned the smallest bedroom into a craft room for my wife and I. Even with all the extra dedicated space, I don't know where Bones 3 is going to go. Do I *really* need an office…?

Would you have them all painted by then??  It's only 34 lbs, that shouldn't take too long.....

I have Phoenix Comicon next weekend and I am wave 1. I am betting things arrive during the Con. I doubt could have it delivered to the hotel...

I have often been saddened by the fact I was unable to participate in this KS campaign. But I also realized the other day that, even if I had, I already have more minis to paint than I know what to do with.  I have at least 35 minis that I purchased in the last year, that sit unopened. At the speed I paint, and factoring in a few more purchases, I will be finished with the ones I have around the time Bones IV releases...and I mean for shipment like 3 currently is.

Ah, to be new to it all and think that 35 minis is a lot. I've been collecting for 30 years and the unpainted numbers have slowly grown in proportion to painted every year. The speed I paint I have at least 10 years of minis ahead of me even if I don't buy more. But looking at and buying minis seems to be the biggest part of my hobby.

Got my notification. Only 11 pounds. I feel somehow inadequate after seeing how big other people's are. :unsure:

I have been on the fence for a while about backing Bones 4.  I have been understanding of the delays with China.  I was frustrated but understanding of the Zone 1 & 2 going first, after all it was only 2 days.  This however may be the deciding factor.  

 

It is looking more and more like the 1 or 2 day delay for Zone 3 will be at least 7 and that the update they posted about doing Zone 3 in wave order was just a lie.  Of course I don't know that for certain, but with only an extremely vague post from them and several posts of people getting their notice (multiples of them being in waves 2 or more) that is what the evidence points to.

This type of reaction is really what a quick update would help quell.

      New Kickstarter starting in November
       
       
      Mythic Games aims at creating and developing high quality games, combining great mechanics massively play tested and demoed in public with spectacular visuals and miniatures designed by world renowned artists.
      Monolith (click) instantly became a reference in the world of high quality miniatures board games with Conan, which raised over $3.3 million on Kickstarter.
      Monolith and Mythic Games joined forces to co-publish Mythic Battles: Pantheon, which will soon hit Kickstarter
       
      Looks like you control a God (giant sized) and its faction (human sized).
       
      Minis look nice

      About this project
      This is a campaign to fund the launch of a set of 28mm Shambling Mound models for RPG and tabletop games. I have sculpted two adult Shamblers and a young Shambler. Initially the two adults will be offered for the campaign.
      If we are able to hit the £1000 stretch goal for the campaign it will unlock the Young Shambler miniature.
      If unlocked this figure will be added FREE to all backers.
      This is a World Wide campaign with the postage as follows:
      United Kingdom 4GBP, Europe 5GBP and Rest of the World 6GBP.
      Campaign Rewards.
      There are 3 reward levels.
      Supporter. If you would like to back the campaign without receiving any of the rewards you can use this pledge level.
      Lone Shambler! Choose this pledge if you would like one of the two Shambling Mould models. Choose from either SM 1: Shambler Walking or SM 2: Shambler Attacking.
      Double Trouble! Choose this pledge level if you would like both SM 1 and SM 2 Shambling Mound sculpts.
      The Models.
      The Shambling Mound models will be cast in high quality grey resin. They have been designed to fit on either a 40mm square or round base.
       
       SM 2: Shambler Attacking is a two part model and will need assembly. Use superglue to attach seperate arm.
      Stretch goal!
      We start the campaign with this initial stretch goal to aim for. If we get to the goal of £1000 the the Young Shambler will be unlocked and added FREE to all pledges. Additional Young Shambler models can be added for £2.

      Who Are we?
      Antediluvian Miniatures are new company producing an ever expanding range of 28mm miniatures for the war gamer, collector and role player. You can see our existing miniatures at www.antediluvianminiatures.com
      The Plan.
      We would like to add to our ever expanding range of unique and unusual figures by producing this range of Medieval Devils and Demons inspired by the freakish illustrated manuscripts of the medieval period! 
      These figures are sculpted by Andrew May ( Demons ), Ian Mountain ( Witch ), and Jo Brumby ( Terrence the Goat ). We think these will be great fun and an unusual addition for fantasy wargames, skirmish and role playing games. There are all 28mm scale, cast in metal- they will come with plastic bases supplied.

      If the campaign goes well we have some extra characters and a potential terrain feature we'll add in as stretch goals and freebies.

      More details of the pledges and locked figures are below.
      What do you get. 
      all the are figures metal cast and supplied with bases. Figures are 28mm scale.

      About this project
      Because the best bits of your miniature collection are the bits you sculpt yourself
      We want to put a special BASIUS COMMUNITY pad in the hands of every tabletop gaming club in the world
      Since launching our first BASIUS Kickstarter project (now known as BASIUS ONE), thousands of gamers have used BASIUS to aid & develop their sculpting skills as well as customise & awesomify* their miniature collections. During this time we have had to move BASIUS out of the garage and into the Industrial Estate!  The BASIUS team has grown since then, and now includes the same family of four sculpting gamers that created BASIUS all those years ago and the family of experienced casters at History Craft.
      We now have ten complete collections of 12 themed 50mm square BASIUS pads prototyped. Some are favourites from previous Kickstarter projects, some have been altered and updated, and the rest are brand new. We need your help to fund their creation on an industrial scale!
      COMMUNITY
      Community is important - in gaming, just like in the rest of life.
      We love gaming with our friends in our local geek-hobby store and we initially met many of our friends purely because of that community. Friendly gaming clubs and hobby stores that go out of their way to host gaming communities are awesome, and we want to help to increase that community awesomeness.
      Kevin Jackson, from the online community, sent us this photo showing how he based his miniatures using BASIUS It stands to reason that if a person wants to do something positive for others in life then it's best to do something they are actually good at, and feedback from all four of our previous BASIUS projects has shown us that we have become rather good at BASIUS-ing**.
      OUR GOAL
      With this focus of community being central to what BASIUS has become, our goal for this latest Kickstarter is quite a big one... Alongside the release of our 10 themed BASIUS collections, we want to provide every tabletop gaming club in the world with a special BASIUS COMMUNITY pad, so that all gamers can use it and help each other to use it, to develop their own and each other's sculpting.
       
      WE NEED YOU
      It would be awesome if every gamer & hobbyist reading this... in every town worldwide, could pledge to get hold of a pad or two in this kickstarter, make some bases with them, show their sculpting to their gaming club and ask their club chairperson to contact us to get a BASIUS COMMUNITY pad for their club.
      Tyler, from the online community, kindly sent us this photo. These base textures are made using just BASIUS, 'Green-Stuff' and paint - thats it.
