Reaper Bones 3: Post-Kickstarter Discussion

Recommended Posts

All the giants have looked fantastic. As pretty much everyone before me already has said, I can take or leave most medium-sized Bones minis, but go bigger and it's freakin' golden.

Actually I'm thinking of getting the giants in metal. They're too pretty not to.

 

This is how I'm keeping my costs down; deciding which I would much rather to have in metal (my preferred medium).

 

Going to ask again because my question got lost:

 

Will the fencing from the graveyard be cast in metal?

Marvin, I generally agree on the bones 1 medium minis. The bones 2 ones were better. Things with delicate thin weapons are the worst offenders, but the beefier medium minis, like the gnolls, and bugbears. Are really nice... I am looking forward to the lizard men in this one. With 2 core sets I am getting a bunch of lizardmen. Also getting a bunch of hobgoblins. I think this is where bones excels. Lots of minion minis for not a big price tag. The large (and bigger) minis are the stars of course, but the medium minis are still really nice...

 

Still wish more generic troops had been in this... Like the oakshield guys, or the Khamsin guys.

 

I added all the fire giant stuff but none of the frost giants. After this reveal I may have to change that. The frost giant looks awesome.

Did they say somewhere they would be making the new Giants in metal? I would need the female in metal when she came out.

I had already had the giants figured into my pledge so yeah they came out cool :)

Oh, absolutely agree. I was actually thinking about the gnolls and bugbears when I's talking "bigger than medium." I'm a big fan. Are the lizardmen that bit larger? I'll be pretty stoked with them if so.

 

I guess it's a lot about thickness, maybe, 'cause, like, I'm surprisingly pleased with all the dwarves I have in Bones. Shorter but thick, blunt. Indeed no thin parts. Still seems to work out.

I can't definitively say no because we sometimes re-examine existing models for suitability for variant processes, but at this time, I feel pretty safe saying that this is a highly unlikely event.

um.. no. These are way too big for that process.

That's what I thought. I saw someone else say they wanted them in metal so I wanted to double check :)

We have not modified the days presented on the project page for time estimates. In fact, we cannot modify those dates. It has always said September 2016 for Wave One.

 

As of now, we are getting in new boxes of prototypes for approval every week, and have heard of no significant delays to the process, although we will keep you advised when we are informed of delays.

 

At this point, the PM remains open so that adding new items is possible, and it is expected that we will shut it down in June. This is not concrete, and will not be final until it is announced via any update, although right now I am not given reason to believe we will hold it open after June ends, I must nevertheless be prepared for the possibility that we might allow stragglers little more time to continue choosing rewards.

One more order to finalize, then done. (he says for the third time)  On the plus side my wife seems like she is excited about the Bonesylvanians and the Wizard of Oz look alikes.  Maybe I can get her into the hobby!

Okay. This definitely defines what I'll be doing.

 

No new giants in metal makes Ary sad.

      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.

      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 came across my newsfeed on Facebook and I thought the minis looked interesting.

      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."

      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!
