 Just not sure I really wanna spend over 40 for something that will probably just sit in the box on the shelf.

 

That's poor rational....I have 1,000's of unpainted minis sitting around! Lol :lol:

 

I will probably get in on this for four minis. Three of the exclusives (I am not a fun of the Nancy Steelpunch one) and yet to decide on the fourth. I took a class at Adepticon where we used busts and I like the change of scale, so this looks like a good opportunity....to paint another bust -or- add to the piles of unpainted minis. :rolleyes:

Beautiful looking figs, but sadly they got trumped by a blown head gasket....

Cool looking stuff.  Did some price comparison between their online store and the KS offerings for the "extras" and the a tiny bit more expensive through the KS, though shipping is included.  The 32mm pieces are cheaper through the KS though.  And with them throwing in the what will likely be at least 2 free 32mm pieces, I may just have to grab one or 2...  Have it on remind by my wife keeps telling me we need to have a second look at the household budget...  :ph34r:

 

EDIT: not all the 32mm pieces are priced the same on their site so for some the KS is a deal, for the others, it's a couple Euro's more, like the bigger ones, likely to cover shipping.  Still cheaper than paying for the shipping to Canukistan!

A head gasket doesn't cost more than one of those busts... 

(Been there, done it, has the old parts to show for it... )

 

I already have Nancy Steelpunch in 35mm scale, so don't really see the need for her in other scales.

I'm backing for now, mostly because getting one bust with (so far) three extra figs seems like a good deal.

I agree.  Have it on remind for now but will likely hop in for a single bust at the end, just to get the 3 other figs, hopefully more by the time we're done.

Also, the sweet magnet / bottle opener! :)

Newest news is that if they get to the 15% off coupon for a year, the American reseller's going to honor the discount, which is pretty nice if we get to that point.

 

How good is that Steampunk in miniature book?  I'm tempted to add it to my pledge, since shipping's going to be free.

I've heard good things about it.  Were I to back I would pick it up.

I'm in for all 8 plus the book and bases.  I'm really hoping that we make the 15% coupon for a year!  It may be interesting to compare between the Spanish and American site, because right now with the Euro where it is, the base cost of the figures in Spain is significantly less expensive than the US site.  Have to play with it and see how it evens out with the shipping...

Their last answer about Jessica and a weapon arm seems a little confusing, " @Bogdan Papuse In this exclusive version for the KS is not possible, we are sorry. We already have a version with the arm of the weapon. Thank you for your comments." It sounds like the KS exclusive busts will be released later with different arms? Or is this just a translation error on their part.

Really?  You must not look at prices for figures this size, cause the price they're charging for these is actually pretty reasonable.  At 25% they'd be ~$10, and that's what most of the boutique 28mm figures are going for (Darksword/Bombshell etc).

Ok, I surrendered. I'm in for 2. Mostly because I do really like the idea of Painting both Bridgette LaFayette, and Jessica Thunderhawk. 

 

Though I am curious to the possible translation issue @Splurch mentioned. I would be more interested in Jessica Thunderhawk with her right weapon arm in the bust.

      Bones 3 had a bit of an unfortunate arrival time for me, coming in the middle of an unplanned move.  It may have taken me a bit, but I'm finally getting started on some of the pieces!

      I even took them with me for some down time on our yearly beach vacation, though my set-up here is not very scenic:



      That was last week, and now they're a bit closer to completion, with some details and fixes, basing, and sealing to be done.  Some Bones 3 furniture snuck in as well:

      Hi friends:
      After hard months of working, we´ve improved the game Iron League Blacks Stadium and the art has changed. Mechs and miniatures are amazing now. The board game has a new full cooperative campaign with map, scenary and enemies generation.
      The competitive mode continues and has been improved.
      So, we also want to change the title of the game, and this is:
      IRON WARS
      In July on Kickstarter. Soon more news.

      Well, here are some proper photos of my latest completed work.   Burak the dwarf from Mr. Lee's Minis.  It was a fun project.

      My husband is running a game of more-or-less-Exalted (2nd ed.) set in the more-or-less World of Darkness (2nd ed.) ("But rather less than more," as W.S. Gilbert wrote -- it has been given the complete Neil Gaiman-Alan Moore historico-mythological treatment, about which I can expound elsewhere and another time, 'cos it's a really fun game).
       
      One of the PCs is playing a mage of the Sons of Ether who has taken to proffering therapy to would-be reformed werewolves and vampires, who Exalted as a solar of the Twilight caste.
       
      If this means nothing to you, don't worry about it.  He's a modern-day Scottish mage who has suddenly gotten an infusion of even more magey power.
       
      This is my standard starting point, the mini glued to a base, primed white, and washed with Burnt Umber.

      Well, Randalf Streisand is up next.  I am going to use him as an opportunity to try out some texturing.  I expect I will be priming him on Wednesday after a bit more cleanup (not the cleanest cast, but not the worst I have seen).
