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?

 

previous KS he was a core addition

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

  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.

      About
      The concept for Mother of Dragons was born a few years ago.
      I still recall seeing the beautiful illustration made by Stéphane Wootha Richard posted on his Facebook profile and I fell in love with her immediately – I knew immediately that I wanted to bring her to life in miniature form.
      Fortunately, Stéphane was also very excited about the idea of a collaboration.
      We were inspired and driven to start working on the project that we both felt so passionate about and now, with much pride we can finally share this project with you all.

      What you see here required 2 years of committed development, during which time, our team has created and implemented many variants until we made of it a full range, indeed in addition to the varied scale of the main subject , you will find unique versions such as the bust or the lovely "super deformed" miniature. In fact, this is the characteristic of all of our Kickstarter campaigns — we always enjoy experimenting with new products and offering you something you've never seen before.
      Every successful kickstarter campaign enable us to share our dreams with the most supportive community in the world.

      In Mother of Dragons you will find exciting new figures as well as numerous artefacts (artefacts? – I hear you say. Exactly)! Be ready for an ancient Dragon Jar, or a real dragon’s tooth. One thing is certain. They will not be the only exclusives to catch your attention.

      Now with your continued help and support; it’s time to bring this project to life!
      So why support this project?
      Well, first because you’re a hobbyist and a modeller and you can’t wait to lay your hands on a new figure.
      Second, because the Mother of Dragons will also appeal to your collector’s side; she will be the “queen” of your showcase, no matter the scale, you choose.
      Apart from the main subject of this campaign, as usual, we’re offering great deals, rewards, add-ons and freebies, indeed Kabuki Studio places great importance to Kickstarter and for this reason the benefits/conditions offered will never be seen again outside the campaign, not even in the pledge manager/late backer's option.

      In PDF format, you will qualify for guides related to your pledge’s scale; i.e. If you backed “Baby Dragon” pledge level, you will receive the painting guide for the 1/50 version; if instead you backed for “Dragon Host” you will receive them all. The artists in charge are:
      Riccardo Agostini (Italy) – 1/50 scale
      Keigo Murakami (Japan) – 1/24 scale

      KICKSTARTER EXCLUSIVE!
       
       
      What is this, and how does it work I hear you say?
      Well it’s simple. At some point during the campaign we will show some super-secret stuff that isn’t quite ready yet. You, as Kickstarter backers will have the exclusive first chance to grab some of this cool stuff.

      Any funds gathered from this boost will be added to the total campaign fund and will also go towards unlocking goodies for the qualifying pledges
       
       
      It’s simple, we need your support in order to fund the project and unlock all the amazing items we’ve designed!
      To donate, select a pledge amount and reward on either the right-hand side of a project page or after clicking the “Back this project” button and selecting “Continue”. From here you’ll be taken to a page where you can continue as a guest, or login if you already have an account.
      If you would like to continue as a guest, just enter your email address and select “Continue as Guest”.
      Next, fill in your payment details and take a minute to review your pledge details. When you’re ready, just click the green “Pledge” button and the job is done! Easy, isn’t it?

      During the campaign, thanks to your help, we will unlock several new rewards so you may want to review your current pledge, well how do you do that? To change your pledge amount, visit the project page and click the “Manage your pledge" button that appears next to your pledge amount and then select "Change your pledge" on the following page.
      From here, you’ll be able to adjust your pledge amount or choose a new reward tier you'd like to pledge for and your pledge amount will update automatically.
      If you don't want to receive a reward, select "Make a pledge without a reward" and enter your new pledge amount. Alternatively, you may change your pledge amount within the reward tier modal.

      Note: you are not adding to your existing pledge; the amount you enter will be the total amount collected if the project is successfully funded.
      Everything will be dispatched from Roma (Italy).
      You don’t have to be worried about customs tax because we’ll provide a special invoice for that purpose.
      All the pledges will be posted through DHL Express and the delivery time is brutally fast!
      18-24 hours for Europe
      2-3 days for rest of the world (customs clearance included)
      So even the delivery time is a “problem solved”.
      Average costs:
      up to 1kg to Europe 14.50 Euro
      up to 1kg to USA/Canada 19.50 Euro
      up to 1kg to Asia 31.50 Euro
      up to 1kg to Australia/South America 38.50 Euro
      We removed “Poste Italiane” from the carriers choice because the price difference is almost zero and the reliability of that carrier is particularly low, that means you could save 3 or 4 euro from shipping cost, but have great delays in your delivery or pay more in custom taxes, or even have the parcel lost.
