Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

Recommended Posts

I generally look at the price per pound rather than the price per mini. That way I don't have to deal with so many digits.

I should have done this math on previous kickstarters. Would be interesting to hear how the results vary for others.

What?! You mean she wouldn't like toys hanging all over? 

 

Also.... ring wraiths. Dude, you're supposed to give her a RING. A ring that isn't haunted and won't cause her to go crazy. Really should give her a roc(k) with the ring too. 

I did... that's how she became my bride... :wub:

 

Actually I lied about my cost per mini. Right now it's closer to 1.35, but I have a couple of big ones to add still which will shift the ratio.

All this talk about price per mini got me to go add up how much I pledged for Bones 4.  I’m getting *gulp* 345 (more) minis.  Plus a couple handfuls of bases.  I don’t think they are going to fit in my giant storage boxes. ::o:

$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.

      A DCC RPG boxed setting for Lankhmar, officially licensed by the estate of Fritz Leiber. Adventure with Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser!

       
      There are three basic pledge levels:
      The PDF pledge level includes an electronic edition of the final boxed set. (Obviously there will be no box!) This level does not include any physical rewards, add-ons or stretch goals. The boxed set includes the core boxed set as described above. All electronic stretch goals (PDFs) will apply to this level. Some of the physical stretch goals will apply to this level, generally those that fit in the box. The final level includes the boxed set as well as the "print pack." All electronic stretch goals (PDFs) will apply to this level. All of the physical stretch goals will apply, as well. Those that do not fit in the box will be shipped in a separate "print pack." See below for more information on these stretch goals.  
      Stretch Goals
      DCC Lankhmar continues a long tradition in RPG gaming, and we want to do right by the estate of Fritz Leiber. The stretch goals associated with this Kickstarter will help create an even more amazing tribute to the world of Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser.
      Stretch goals fall into three categories:
      PDF stretch goals that all backers receive Print stretch goals that can fit into the boxed set, which will be included with any pledge that has the physical boxed set The "Print Pack," which is a printed collection of the stretch goals which don't fit in the boxed set Here is a rough outline of possible stretch goals, which may evolve as the Kickstarter continues.
      At $40,000: Cleared! We will add a new Lankhmar adventure module (PDF for all backers; print copy in the Print Pack)
      At $60,000: We will print the poster map larger (included in boxed set)
      At $80,000: We will add a second Lankhmar adventure module (PDF for all backers; print copy in the Print Pack)
      At $100,000: We will add a supplement called "A Dozen Lankhmar Locations," which will provide information, maps, and floorplans on setting adventures in a dozen famous Lankhmar locales (including the Silver Eel!) (PDF for all backers; print copy in the boxed set)
      At $120,000: We will add a third Lankhmar adventure module (PDF for all backers; print copy in the Print Pack)
      At $140,000: We will add a supplement called "Random NPCs in Lankhmar," which will provide tables and information for generating random NPCs that your PCs can encounter in Lankhmar (PDF for all backers; print copy in the Print Pack)
      At $160,000: We will add a fourth Lankhmar adventure module (PDF for all backers; print copy in the Print Pack)
      At $180,000: We will add a Lankhmar-themed three-panel Judges Screen (PDF for all backers; print copy in the boxed set)
      At $200,000: We will add a fifth Lankhmar adventure module (PDF for all backers; print copy in the Print Pack)
      At $220,000: We will add a cloth map in the boxed set (print copy in the boxed set)
      At $240,000: We will add a sixth Lankhmar adventure module (PDF for all backers; print copy in the Print Pack)
      At $250,000: We will add send Michael Curtis to Houston for a week to research the Fritz Leiber archives in the University of Houston. We anticipate this may result in a new product of some kind to be delivered to backers of this Kickstarter, but exactly what we'll discover in the archives - and what product may result from it - can't be determined until Michael sets foot in the archives!

      About this project
      Code Zero is a 32mm miniatures skirmish game set in a futuristic alternate universe. Players take control of a small squad of troops, broken up into fireteams, competing with each other to achieve one or several objectives and complete their mission. These combat situations usually take place within a theater of war, on the borders along the core worlds of various factions. These dangerous worlds and systems which are on the outskirts of secured core sectors are known as Code Zero's. The owners of the territories tend to change hands monthly since many of them are inhabited by second class citizens, those trying to survive and make a living in harsh future.  
      Code Zero is designed to create a cinematic feel of gameplay, while reflecting the dynamic ebb and flow of the battle that can happen within any given engagement. We do this by utilizing an action/reaction system, allowing both players to interact in a method keeping everyone engrossed with the battle. Utilizing alternate activations along with a different method to resolve reactions this can create some unique situations  
      The first of our miniatures for this universe are digitally sculpted, 3d printed and cast in high quality resin.

      This looks like it could be fun. Pre-painted minis with an odd choice for scale, 65 to 85mm. The early samples do look good though:
