Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

I wish there was something that showed how many of each thing has been purchased.  Not that it would effect what I bought I am just super nosy.

 

I have no doubt that Reaper already has done this and thoroughly investigated. They need to for fulfillment of course, but it is also useful for them to know what sells best in general.

 

We could probably create a google poll for those of us who want to volunteer our hauls though for curiosity.

Well, you can also use them for practicing new techniques or color choices. They are great for kids... unfortunately when my kids were the right age and showed interest my inpatience ruined it for them. My fault and a big regret.

 

As an alternative to the BoGW, you can just send me any unwanted bones. They will have a good home.

My home is available too:) Just saying, my other bones would keep them company:)

I would imagine that this is proprietary info since other companies could greatly benefit from knowing sales data. That being said, I would love to know for curiosity purposes as well.

I'm thinking of the value of this kickstarter not so much in terms of price per miniature, but as literally YEARS of pleasure getting them all painted.

Or, for some, YEARS of guilt looking at all the unpainted ones! ::P::lol:

This is why they are locked away behind closed doors when not being painted or displayed.

I like that as an excuse though! 

"Honey the dragon was only $1.48, how could I resist"!  

:lol::devil:

That’s been my excuse: “I’m getting this (human sized) figure for $1.78, it’s $7.50 in the store!”

Exactly my sentiments.

 

I need a potion of immortality to be able to paint it all, but still, the joy of being able to choose a mini from one's own collection is awesome.

And I can give some away or trade some or put them in a BOGW to swap them for something else.

 

And yes, the value is good, and the detail is good to great depending on the size.

I went in for expansions and add ons.

Lost Valley and the Fan Favorites where a no brainer for me considering my large projects.

Darkreach provides me with a lot of cool monsters to paint.

Dragon Turtle, Roc, Frost Giants, Zombie Dragon, Argent, 2 x Barge, Baba Yaga Hut, Ghost Pirates, Snake Cultists, lots of bases, both paint sets.

And I still have the spoils from Bones II and III, I also bought a lot of Bones I.

Not mentioning my vast metal and resin collection and lets certainly not go into the subject of busts and larger scale minis.

 

I have 20 minis, 20 paints and I paid 20 cents for it all !

 

I can quit anytime I want!!!!

All this talk about suspending dragons from the ceiling led to a conversation about using dragons as a crib mobile.

 

I cannot honestly say that I can remember if it was my idea or Megan's... it just seems to have evolved....

2 to 2.5 years for each core set.  In My Experience.

As someone who had two children with dragon picture (2D) mobiles I applaud this. But you might want to go with extra bright and extra high contrast color schemes if you want the baby to pay attention to them.
