Woohoo!
 

I did a video with me in the box, but I need to take a picture. I'll have to take everything out of the box again to do so. Whoops. 

You could just do a screen grab from your video??? right?

Overall my impressions so far are that this new iteration of Bones material is superior is quality. Also, the resealable bags on many of the minis was a nice touch. I haven't painted any of it yet, but I am thinking this KS will prove to be my favorite of them all so far.

 

I still haven't finished unboxing, as I started with the big stuff and am now in the process of moving to smaller, but more numerous things like Core and Expansions. The crisp detail and more firm material is outstanding this far!

I wasn't sure how much would be ziplock bagged, so I stocked up:) Good to hear some are though.

It’s different. I’m not so sure it’s superior, although I certainly like the increase in detail and less bendyness.

Don’t like the brittleness though, and I think it’ll be more difficult for conversions.

Like Ratmaster2000, I stocked up on ziplock bags of assorted sizes in preparation for Bones 4 but I do appreciate that so many are already packaged in a similar style of resealable bag.

Certainly in my top 2.

After Bones 3, where I didn’t even get the core set and only backed for a few add ons and expansions, I was thinking I was on the verge of being Bonesed out. However The selection of minis chosen for Bones 4 Really drew me back in.

After receiving and seeing the Bones Black 4 minis for myself, the sneak previews of the giants and dragons have made me even more excited for Bones 5.

I think Bones Black is a must for human sized minis. I think Reaper is playing it smart by making the decision of using original Bones or Bones Black for a mini on a case by case basis.

It will still be easier than metal for conversions. They are definitely smart shifting it to case-by-case. I agree that it will likely become more standard on humanoid size figures. However, most of the Core set humanoids are improved a lot from older editions, and are not BB. What Reaper failed on is the pre-assembly. More BB figures are preassembled to a major detriment. The arm on necromancer-lady from Dreadmere is glued in very poorly. There are beasties in Dreadmere and Fan Favorites that are glued to the base such that reaching the insides of them will be miserable. All it will take to fix that is NOT gluing them. Reaper already showed their willingness to shift to sprues and pieces on smaller figures; they need to continue that.

"I'll take Bright Skin Highlights for $100 - Alex."

 

The numbering sequence isn't even coherent.

GEM

 

You might just have found out why there are so many mix ups with the paint delivery.

If the're labelled wrong, they will be picked wrong.

I was gonna say it's the highlight for a certain drow skintone that's a tad hard to find.

 

Oh, finding it is one thing, staying alive during the search is the hardest part.

 

WOOF to UK agents, time to unload that ship you slackers!!!

Hurry up!

We know where your house lives !!!

Black Magic Craft did an unboxing, his first Reaper KS. He was overwhelmed. So much schadenfreude watching that vid. Also forgot how many bags those minis come in. Are they recyclable in anyway?

I might end up exceedingly happy with UPS later today. Waking up in the middle of the night I find that UPS has updated the delivery date of my Big Beautiful Box of Bones from 4/17 to 4/16, which means I’ll he home when they arrive!!

 

Note: Due to the impending arrival of granddaughter #4, I have taken a couple of days off work so Nana and I could watch granddaughters 1, 2, and 3 while mommy and daddy were picking up baby Zoey at the Stork Depot. Turns out the storks were very efficient and mommy and daddy made it home a day sooner than expected, so Cece, Lyla, and Mae have gone home a day early to be with mommy and daddy and Zoey, leaving grampa with nothing to do on this, the last Family Leave day off, but to roll around in a big pile of bones which he now expects to arrive one day early!

 

Addendum: My BBBoB has left Jacksonville!

There will be no picture of me in a box. There may be a cat in the box, if he cooperates. If we are quite lucky, and my wave 5 pledge gets here at the right time, there might be a baby in the box ^_^

At a quick glance (haven't finished unboxing, let alone dryfitting) I am pretty sure I am missing the Fantasy Scenics and Rulers of Hell. I think everything else is accounted for...probably.

Fantasy Scenics is a pretty large bag as these things go; in my restrained little order, only the barge was bigger...

      EDIT: link to the live kickstarter:
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1744629938/hellboy-the-board-game/description

       

      The Hellboy board game will be a co-operative experience in which players face off against some of the comic’s most famous foes. Up to four people take control of iconic BRPD members, such as Hellboy, Abe Sapien and Roger the Homunculus, before exploring gothic locations and uncovering ancient artifacts.
      Set to make its Kickstarter debut in April 2018, the Hellboy board game will feature stunning, pre-assembled plastic miniatures that accurately capture the look and feel of Mike Mignola’s world famous comic series.
      “Hellboy has a great cast of characters, diverse locations and legendary monsters from the pages of folklore and myth,” said Ronnie Renton, Mantic CEO. “The comics provide a fantastic foundation on which to build an immersive, fun and fast-paced co-operative board game that will let players experience some of their favorite moments from the series.”

      KS only (not coming to retail as Monolith made a loss on the retail version of their Conan game)
       

       
      optional buys
       

       
      plus lots of unlocked stretch goals
       
      game roughly based on the fairly well recived Conan game engine, they did a decent job with the Conan minis too so if your into batman and have the (significant) buy in it's probably a wise pick.

      If you got a few extra Argents, you could strap a set of wings to a corgi and make corgi dragons.
