I got into painting because of Bones! So I'm in for everything but the SciFi expansion, scenics (Modern and Fantasy), tiles, and the really big ones like DoD, Skeleton/Zombie Dragons and the like. 

 

They're so affordable that I don't mind "messing" one up with my paint job, i.e. i'm willing to try and paint anything in Bones form. Also, you can drop them and little pieces don't come flying off. I'm in for about 380~ minis and am at about 1.38 a mini (that may change, I'm waffling back and forth on a few).

So you guys doing mini/$ got me curious.

 

I am getting 694 minis at $953.27 is $1.37/mini. Though this includes some multiples of big things like 2 Argents and 2 barges. Though you guys are right, getting Argent and the barge for $1.37 is pretty great.

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....

      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:
