Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

Recommended Posts

$1.78 NZD per figure for me. And, just starting out in painting, roughly 8 months to figure out where to put a paint station, since I doubt FLGS is going to let me keep painting there when I show up with as many minis as they carry.....

Battle Kiwi have some nice MDF vertical paint racks that might help save on space, plus a portable paint station.

My order comes out to $2.65, which is a steal considering that I haven't added the full core or any expansions and I have a fair selection of big figures. The first thing I'll probably paint is either the Tree of Despair or the dire crab. I'm a huge Skyrim fan and cannot wait to have a mudcrab! I only wish I had something suitable to use as Nirnroot for the base.

Yes! I didn't grab it, but I amused myself by thinking of the drunken mudcrab in Morrowind.

 

This kickstarter is several bucks a mini, but it makes sense because we only grabbed a couple big things and little groupings (no core or expansions).

Bones 3 was like.... dimes per mini. We had just discovered minis like a month before it started. It was.... Let's call it an expensive tumble into a new hobby. :lol:

Bones 3 went a bit like:

"Dungeons and Dragons minis we could use to play babe LOOK REAL DRAGONS"

"Are you sure we're gonna paint all these, we've never even done one befo- MORI THEY HAVE DWARVES"

Currently my cost is $1.36 per mini with most of the really big singles in there.  I usually get the core because they make great invitations to paint.  Sort of like my own paint and take table.  i have a few drawers in my mini filing cabinets (thank you Ikea!) that people can just grab a mini and paint if they want to join me when they are visiting.  So far i have made 2 converts so I consider the investment well made. 

 

I am really hoping that i can come up with a long term solution to having removable legs on Baba's hut.  Having it doing double duty will go a long way to making it move to the front of the line.

I got a paint set and 8 minis lol.

my pledges go down each KS as I get more into display painting and larger scale.

I'm in for the living statues (male and female) the frost giant ladies and rulers of hell (two sets)

I have 346 miniatures, counting paint colors as individual miniatures and the fence toppers as one mini per 6, at an average of $1.56 per mini. Considering I have Bahamut, the barge, treent, and rulers of hell, i'd day that's pretty darn good.

I am getting entirely too many minis. Definitely going to need to sort them into a share pile and an all-for-me pile.

So far, I'm getting 328 mini's at $1.89 per. But that's before I add a couple more Roc's & possibly the Dreadmere Expansion.

 

That doesn't include the 2 paint sets.

465 mini's (had to add them all up, what a pain haha) NOT counting bases or paints (or art book and DVD's), @1.67 per mini. Pretty good, considering a bunch are medium to huge:)
