 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.

      About this project
       

      Thank you for taking the time to check out Divinity: Original Sin 2, our biggest and most ambitious RPG to date!
      A couple of quick facts about the game:
      Divinity: Original Sin 2 is a single- and multiplayer top-down, party-based role-playing game with pen & paper RPG-like levels of freedom.It features turn-based combat, a strong focus on systematic gameplay and a well-grounded narrative. Divinity: Original Sin 2 is the sequel to the critically acclaimed Divinity: Original Sin, winner of over 150 Game of the Year awards and nominations. Winner of GameSpot’s “PC Game of The Year 2014â€. Divinity: Original Sin 2 is currently in development for PC in English. Subtitles will be available in German, French, and Russian. Other platforms and languages may be announced at a later stage, once development is more advanced.
      The theme of Divinity: Original Sin 2 is how your origins affect who you are and what chances you get in life.
      At the start of the game, you pick a single character and determine your starting stats, race, and origin story.

      You'll be able to recruit up to three companions, each of whom is just as detailed as the character you're playing, with their own origin story and motivation to help you in your quest.
      This makes it possible for each companion to become a player character in multiplayer mode; every party member is equally important to the whole.

      In multiplayer, up to 4 players can play together, either cooperatively or competitively.
      During competitive questing, you’ll pursue different plot-lines from other players, often because your personal motivations are in conflict with those of the party.
      To loot or not to loot: You'll have to argue, reason, or duke it out.
      There's no obligation to compete, of course. Many party members will manage to balance their own interests with those of the party. Should you find yourself in conflict, know that it's always possible to make up afterwards.
      The important thing here is that it's you who gets to make that choice.

      As my first finished bust this one was an adventure, some mistakes were made but lots was learned. It was commissioned by a friend as a gift for his fiancee now wife who is also a really good friend. He did not have many requirements, just a similar color scheme to Ben Komets's version. The only variation I wanted to do was the shield design but my friend was ok with changing it. I still almost went with that design but found my way to the one that I ended up using and I am so happy with it.
       
      Any feedback is most welcome!

      Hello everyone,
       
      Over in the Bones 4 Kickstarter enthusiasm thread, there seemed to be quite a few people calling for a list of the new bones figures coming because of the kickstarter. I had a spreadsheet that I'd been using for the previous kickstarters and have tacked a Bones 4 sheet onto it. This is open for editing by anyone to edit and fix things I've missed.
       
      https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1dFN0lQL096zQMq8KG5aXcgrA7-VEIEoU6W-ujck7kj4/edit#gid=142862380 (same as linked in my signature).
       
      Entries are group by set (core, expansions, add ons, etc) and sorted by display order on the Kickstarter images.
      Reference numbers are from the Kickstarter images -- for the most part, some are made up to make discussions easier.
      The colors of the "Reference #" and "Group" columns match the colors of the backgrounds of the Kickstarter update images or for late additions, the Pledge Manager.
       
      Specifically for the Bones 4 sheet several of the rows have red background colors. The red background "Name" entries are where I've not been able to determine the correct name from either update images or sneak preview videos. Red background "Existing Part #" entries are where I've not been able to determine if the figure is a new sculpt or what the existing figure's number is.
       
      One thing you'll notice is that there are counts in columns E-F of all sheets, and a date entry field in column G. These counts come from my Bones Kickstarter painted mini tracking spreadsheet. Column E is a full count of the figures you'd receive if you pledged for one of everything in the Kickstarter (except count of bases). Column F is a count of minis that are painted. G2 is a count of unpainted minis and H2 is a percentage of collection that is unpainted.
       
      Hopefully this is helpful to others out there.

      So, here's one I tripped over on Kickstarter:
       
      http://kck.st/2jgt2hT
       
      Basically, someone's doing miniatures... which didn't really grab me, until I saw the one for Edgar Allen Poe.  I'm from Baltimore, so I have to get that one.  And there's an HP Lovecraft, and some other cool stuff.  What do others think?

      Presenting another Ogre Gangster from the game Wolsung by Micro Art Studio.
       
      Casting wasn't too good on this one, he's got pits, cracks and rough patches all over him, but I still think I did a decent job.
      He's also my final Ogre Gangster (I've still got a few Halfling Gangsters to paint though), so here's a group-shot:-
       

       
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly appreciated.
