I have a suggestion for how some minis are handled in future kickstarters and sold at retail.
Some items in the various bones kickstarters were offered as part of a set or combined with a group and not available on their own. For the most part that makes sense. The items are grouped and to offer them separately means that people might only buy the thing they want and the less popular items might not be justified.
But some things make sense in multiples. It would have been great to have them to have been allowed to be bought on their own, or in multiples or to be sold in bundles of themselves.
As an example, The wall of fire... I wanted to get 180' of wall of fire recently... at each one representing a 5' square, that's 36 individual pieces. They sell in set of 3 for $5. So the 180' is $60 worth of wall of fire...
Most stores (including reaper) don't have enough in stock. It would have been very convenient to just stock up on them during the kickstarter. There are a couple figures like that in the bones 4 kickstarter too...
So my suggestion would be for things that make sense in multiples. Offer then on their own, but in a number that makes them usable. Like the wall of fire could have been offered as a "wall of fire bundle" with 10, or 20, or 36 for whatever kickstarter price would be appropriate. So 10 for $10, or 36 for $50... but with the reasoning that one does not need a single 5' wall of fire... This could also be done on the Reaper store... A pack of 4 is fine, but the option to get a pack of 10 or more would be great as well.
Just a thought.
So this guy was a relatively quick paint job - I worked on him over a couple of nights in between other figures and while things were drying.
I had originally basecoated him a couple of months back when I decided that I was absolutely going to paint something using Breast Cancer Awareness Pink, as I have something like 8 bottles of it at this point. This was the figure that I pulled out of my Bones drawer. I’d basecoated him and then he made his way to the Shelf of Shame unfortunately.
I saw him sitting up there and decided I would just have fun with it.
The lemures do come 2 to the pack and are in 2 different poses, but this one is the only one I have painted thus far.
I hope y’all find him as fun as I do!
So, one of my personal mini projects atm is working on some of the NPCs my players in my homebrew campaign are encountering. And one of my favorite groups in that world are the Hunts - a loose-bound organization of groups (each called a Hunt) of fighters/mercenaries/warriors, each with their own specialty, who dedicated themselves to maintaining the roads and paths of Fidel during the millenia-long anarchy of the Mortal Wars.
Now, what makes the Hunts distinctive from any other mercenary bands? Well, they ride BADASS FLYING MOUNTS.
Gryphons, for the most part, although one or two specialize in pegasi, and a few ride more esoteric things...
Four NPCs intimately intertwined with the group are members of the Red Hunt - a sort of catch-all for powerful, destructive mages. Faukner, her apprentices Formel and Tiercel, and her wife, Charr.
So, I've had the Stonehaven Half-Dragon Duelist for ages. It's one of my favorite dragonborn minis, and I decided it'd be perfect for the swashbuckling Charr... It's a great mini, neat and clean with tons of personality.
To give you an idea of who Charr is...
Anyways, I've decided to do a WIP of this set of minis, starting with Charr's two forms. This is the thread for her humanoid form, obviously - I'm painting up the Temple Dragon for her dragonness form, and I'll try to do a WIP for that, too.
I started off nice and simple - hit the face with some red, and decided on a blue-and-white scheme for the cloths. I'm trying to bring out some of the swashbuckler in this mini, so I like the naval colors. That said, I could use ideas for the cravat.
Ordinarily, I'd paint my dragonborn's hair simularly to her scales and try to ignore it, but gonna go with dark for these dreads. They're sweet as hell. Wish DSM would give us a KS for these.
And there's the face, pretty much finished, TBH! I washed it with Games Workshop's purple wash, pretty heavily so it'd sit well in the mouth and scale cracks, and then highlighted just with pure red. This is a proof-of-concept for the temple dragon, as well as a mini on it's own, and I'm pretty happy with it! Used Palimimo Gold for the eyes - something else that'll carry over!
This is Ebonwrath as painted for the Random Rainbow Dragon challenge as presented here;
I rolled up;
Primary Colour: Olive Green
Secondary colour: Lemon Yellow
Teriary Colour: Terran Khaki
I went for the 3 star challenge.
The colours reminded me of summer in the Australian bush around my parents farm and the Blue Mountains near where I now live, so I went with a base that tried to create that impression.
Here he is;
If you are interested the WIP thread is here;
Please feel free to leave your comments, constructive critisims, ideas or questions here.
I hope you enjoy looking at this model as I did painting it.
Ok. I have fallen victim to this insane challenge. More than that I am determined to go for the 3 star challenge. Oh dear!
In keeping with the spirit of this whole thing I rolled randomly for the dragon and got Ebonwrath.
As for colours...
Main: Olive Green
Secondary: Lemon Yellow
Tertiary: Terran Khaki
