In previous KS was Mr. Bones offered as part of the core or an add on?  Or was he just given to all backers as a reward?

So... how long do you think it might take the party to figure out that the barge is the lich's phylactery? (Sometimes it is the big things that are hard to notice....)

 

That's a fantastic idea!

The Auld Grump

 

In "Reign of Winter" and Pathfinder in general, Baba Yaga is, of course, a Witch, who get most of their big abilities from their familiar and suffer greatly without them.

Her familiar is her Dancing Hut.  Both give each other insane bonuses.

As I posted earlier that I had locked in my initial order. I went in last night, after the power came back on, and filled in my current "gotta have it" list, adding Rauthuros and the Stygian Barge. This is definitely going to be my largest Bones delivery yet.

Am I the only one that though Rauthuros was big enough to begin with? I still haven't done anything with the first Bones one. The styxian barge is looking pretty interesting but not sure I'll get it. Lots of time to think about it.

Not really. I am a.bit disappointed with the size of models.  Since it's not metal was hoping for even bigger sets , but the metal molds are so expensive I guess it makes sense...

Questions for all:

What mini are you most excited to paint?

Which mini do you think will be the hardest/take you the longest to paint?

What mini are you buying the most of (now or planned at retail)?

What do you hope to see most in Bones 5?

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

For my own answers to my questions:

What mini are you most excited to paint?
The Frost Giants and Lords of Hell look like they'll have a lot going on and seem like they'll be very rewarding to flesh out with paint.

 

Which mini do you think will be the hardest/take you the longest to paint?
I think the Zombie Dragon may be the hardest for me to get to look the way I imagine it and Dance of Death will probably take the longest, just due to size and it being two separate dragons

 

What mini are you buying the most of (now or planned at retail)?
The Statues - Currently have 7 sets of each selected :D
Also getting 3 sets total (2 from core, 1 extra) of both Monsters (griffon/wyvern/owlbear) and Dire Animals)
Everything else is 2 or less.

 

What do you hope to see most in Bones 5?
I'd love to see a troop of bards
I like the idea of seeing more Catfolk and other humaniods that are not currently well represented.
More Djinn and Efreeti would be great too

For me:

What mini are you most excited to paint?
Argent - already looking at what slight modifications to make to the head, to get it closer to this:

 

Bahamut4e.jpg

Not sure if i want to do metallics on it. I'm thinking not. 

 

Agrammon, i'm interested in, just to get the modifications done so he looks more like Bel:

bel.jpg

So sword has to be redone, teeth and maybe make larger wings (may not both with that though).

 

The Chaos Frogs - cause Slaad are cool....

 

Which mini do you think will be the hardest/take you the longest to paint?
Bahamut (Argent), Dance of Death, Dragon Turtle - these i will most likely use as contest entries @ Sword & Brush the year we get the models (or the year after) so will have to paint them to competition standard.  Most models i dont try. I try to make them look good, but i do separate contest entries vs other.  The only Bones piece i have so far that I want to do at a competition level is the Froghemoth.  (already started conversions and base planning for it)

 

What mini are you buying the most of (now or planned at retail)?
Just 1 of whatever i am buying. dont buy duplicates (although planning to trade some stuff to get duplicates to trade within my friends group)

 

What do you hope to see most in Bones 5?
- Hecatoncheries (yes, with 50 heads and 100 arms) -- something like this:

maxresdefault.jpg

- rare demonlords (Juiblex, Shaktari, Obox-ox, Sestrous, etc)

- Demogorgon

- Archdevil set (Mammon, Asmodeus, Geryon, Mephisto, etc)

- Zaratan :) :) (but it would need to be BIG - i'd imagine to do it right, would need to be an add on that costs $75-$100 on its own!)

- more chaos toads (the other types)

 

Regards,

 

Sanjay

Mossbeard

The Stygian Barge / Baba Yagga's Hut. Depends on which I obsess over and blast out for an adventure and which I fiddle with forever. 

 

What mini are you buying the most of (now or planned at retail)?
Now- The monsters core breakout. It is really the only thing I am getting duplicates of, a group of Griffons, Owlbears, or Wyverns is going to be awesome.

 

Retail - The terror fish guys from dredmere, the dino-men if the final poses are a little more actiony, or the crab dudes from the Fan Expansion

 

What do you hope to see most in Bones 5?

A shambling mound

Translucent Gem Dragons

More exotic golems

Mini most excited to paint? Uh... that's a tough one. Dance of Death, Dragon Turtle, Frost Giant Raiders? I DON'T KNOW I LIKE THEM ALL. 

 

Which will be the hardest to paint? Dance of Death. The others, while large and with much possibility, don't seem as complex in my mind. 

 

Which am I buying the most of? Got two of the high rollers (one for me, one for a friend), and a few other repeats for when me and the BF couldn't decide who got it.

 

Bones V? CAT DRAGON. Uhh... awesome Bones? Mousling-related stuff? I'll get back to you on that. I'm fickle but easy to please on minis.

From Core, Gauth. Otherwise Dance of Death.

Looking at the core image again, I guess Kobolds. :huh:

Really though, High Rollers. Forsee several gifts made out of these sets! ::D:

More Reaper awesomeness!

 

... wait, that's a given, isn't it?

 

Really though:

  • More clockwork creatures
  • More Shadowrun appropriate minis
  • Rakshasa

   The pack terrapin and handler

   The Frost Giant Raiders (Look at all the little details on those ladies!)

  Now, the Snakemen Cultists, Giant Apes, and the Ghost Pirates; because I know I want units of those.

  Retail, probably the Fan Favorite Cavalry for the same reason.  

 

 

What do you hope to see most in Bones 5?

 

 Terrain, and more troop types presented in goups of 3, 4, or 5, for gamers using rules requiring unit sized forces.

      Do yourself a favour and take a look at what's on offer even if you've not backed one of Stonehavens projects before.
      Lots of unique and fun concepts scattered throughout,
       
      Plus they've done things a bit differently and have everything already sculpted and shown.
       
      Love the cloaked mysterious strangers.

      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2052977442/carnevale-the-miniature-game

      Carnevale is a tactical narrative miniatures game set in 1790's Venice. Safe from the effects of the Rent in the Sky that tore Italy in half, Venice is now a hot-spot of magical activity. Strange creatures rise from the canals, the ruling class play violent games with lesser men, and the population of Venice try to survive. All vie for power in the street fights that take place in the dark of the night.

      Carnevale is a game that focuses on movement and brutal combat. You're as likely to see two people battling in the streets as you are to see warriors jumping from rooftop to rooftop and drowning their opponents in the canals. Using the tight streets and watery dangers to your advantage will ensure victory, and if it doesn't, some well-timed magic spells might!

      Carnevale is a narrative game that sees gamers play through various scenarios with their gangs of fighters. The games skirmishes allow for in depth storytelling, and we have made an effort to streamline rules in order to let the action take place on the tabletop, rather than spending too much time keeping track in the pages of a rulebook. The tactical flexibility opens up when building your gangs how you want, using many varied members to different effect.
