Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

So, unlike with Bones 3 arriving after I'd already finished Bones 2, I actually have some minis left in the queue, though they're mostly humanoids that I prefer to save in case they wind up being needed for a player character at some point...

 

I feel like we need an inspirational web series or blog from you on getting things done ^^

 

I'm also really looking forward to my pledge arriving. My group will be back to the Underdark and that Darkreach expansion will come in handy. Silly me thought we would have finished the campaign by now :lol:

It helped that I was working at a call center that didn't complain when I painted minis at work. You get a lot done when painting during a 10 hour shift...

 

I recently changed jobs, and until I get into a comfortable state at the new one, painting is probably going to be much harder to accomplish, sadly...

I agree!

 

This is my first Bones Kickstarter, in the past has there been any sort of "Bones Bulk Blast" group to try and get through them as a group activity? If so I'll certainly be signing up I think!

We've done a few events, mostly informal painting contests, but nothing like a painting group. It would be pretty cool though!

If previous KS are any indication I'll take a quick look to see everything is in order, grab a couple favourites to paint and then pack them away for a few months. Then I'll go though them again sorting them into my existing boxes by theme, again grabbing a few to paint up. Then they will sit for years with occasional stirring as I look for something relating to whatever I'm working on or just grabbing random things to break up/rest from my major projects. Honestly don't know how much I've painted out of the other Bones KS but probably only 25% by number but closer to half by weight. Focused more on big monsters and terrain with my painting because that was really lacking for me. So many minis so little energy right now.

Before Bones I normally only bought a mini when I had plans to paint it.  After Bones 1 delivered I had an instant collection.  It seems to have taken on a life of it's own at this point.

I have plans to paint nearly everything. Really. 

 

I also have plans for world domination... but y'know... some things are temporarily put on hold.

Be careful, I'm pretty sure they multiply when you're not looking.

I'm looking forward to delivery. I have gotten through most of my Bones 3 miniatures, though I've been on hiatus due to a job change and having to work to get some licenses for the new job. So, unlike with Bones 3 arriving after I'd already finished Bones 2, I actually have some minis left in the queue, though they're mostly humanoids that I prefer to save in case they wind up being needed for a player character at some point...

 

 

You have painted most of your bones3 minis?   Did you do the first KS as well? 

I finished 1 and 2, but have only painted 1/3 of KS3 core - im still looking at 2 years at current pace.

 

I didn't get the core set of bones4 - just a lot of Dinos, and some extras. (Bring on the BOAT!)

Why has the nearly 1.5 years waiting for this seem so easy but this last month or two are so hard?!

 

Do we want to start getting guesses for the official start date of shipping?

 

My guess Feb 20th

It's like Christmas. Sleeping on Christmas Eve is so suspenseful.

      I haven’t backed any of Bears Heads kickstarters yet, but I’ve been tempted by everyone.
      This is the one that I give in to. 
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/98300108/narthoks-the-excellent
      But hurry! It’s funded with ONLY 3 DAYS LEFT!

       
      As nice as that sculpt is, it’s the sci-fi and bartender versions I’m most excited about. The stretch goals for those have been reached, but only concept drawings are available to show.

       
      I think these are great unique looking eye beasts.
      @TheAuldGrump maybe something you could use for your campaign?

      Didn't see a post about this yet:
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/deadlyprintstudio/battlefx
       
      BattleFX is a bundle comprising of several 3D designs of dynamic effects and destructible terrain for wargames. ready for you to print.
      Every item of the bundle has been carefully designed and tested to be 3D printed. this kickstarter includes a STL pack of each pledge, ready to be printed using your own 3D printer - or alternatively, using online 3D printing services.
      After working extensively on the movie FX sector, we realized we could apply that experience to our wargamme hobby - and taking things to the next level.
      We have been working very hard and have already finished designing and testing every one of the items on our basic pledge, therefore guaranteeing that YOU will get it. However, we want to continue creating and offering you new, epic effects for your wargames - hence the advance stretchgoals!
        /*Included in Kaboom Pledge and above*\ 
       It has the widest range from trusters to muzzles flashes and smoky Fx!
      S - Muzzles Flashes S - Trusters S - Smoky things!  We are getting more serius here big booms and more complex Fx:
      M - Big weapongs, explosion and Sci-fi Fx M - Smoke Shell, lateral atack, Sci-fi barrier and barrels Fx  The Big Boys. It takes some time to print, but it also turns your war gaming table into a real battlefield.
      L - Smoke grenade, Orbital atack L - Fire, water and ground explosions  The Kickstarter Star Product, the Epic Fx! Destructible, reassemblable scenography and cool lighting.

      About
       "...Aulë made the dwarves strong to endure. Therefore they are stone-hard, stubborn, fast in friendship and in enmity, and they suffer toil and hunger and hurt of body more hardily than all other speaking peoples; and they live long, far beyond the span of Men, yet not forever."
      -J. R. R. Tolkien
      Dwarves really are the best! While they're often a bit rough around the edges, they have the best accents, are insatiably loot-hungry, and will fight anything that moves—so we are going to make a bunch more of them! 
      We've assembled them into adventuring parties to make it easier for us to pack and ship. You can add an additional adventuring party to your base reward for $22. Additional individual dwarves can be added to your base reward for $5 each. For a slightly larger view of the minis, check them out on our blog. Here are the adventuring parties:
      From Left to Right: Male Dwarven Brawler, Female Dwarven Bard, Male Dwarven Deathknight, Male Dwarven Druid, Female Dwarven Warrior
      The League seeks out the ancient dwarven knowledge hidden deep within the lost caverns. They hope that, in time, civilized dwarves will once again inhabit those hallowed halls. 
      From Left to Right: Male Dwarven Rogue, Female Dwarven Sheildbreaker, Male Dwarven Battlerager, Male Dwarven Mage, Female Dwarven Archer
      Hogg's Tavern is not the sort of place that anyone should visit . . . at least not anyone who values their life or health. Surprisingly, it has regulars. Its patrons are usually adventures past their prime or looking to make a name for themselves. 
      From Left to Right: Female Dwarven Mechanist, Male Dwarven Automaton, Male Dwarven Gunslinger, Female Dwarven Automage, Male Dwarven Investigator
      Not everyone has embraced the "advances" made in the Steam Valley workshops. When the Savages descended on the valley, the Seigebreakers and their constructs helped turn the tide against the invading armies.
      From Left to Right: Female Dwarven Vampire Hunter, Male Dwarven Undead Elite, Male Dwarven Necromancer, Female Dwarven Huntsman, Male Dwarven Warlord
      The lands beyond Raven's Gate are shrouded in perpetual mists and haunted by the undead. Only the very brave or the very foolish venture there. Why not both? 
      From Left to Right: Female Dwarven Barbarian, Female Dwarven Berserker, Female Dwarven Wandsmith, Male Dwarven Fighter, Male Dwarven Barbarian
      The Iron Hills are not an easy country to grow up in. There's bitter cold winters and orcish armies locked in perpetual combat. That's not even mentioning the greatwolves. No one ever mentions the greatwolves.
      Every Stretch Goal we hit will add more dwarves (or dwarf-related miniature items/companions) to the Completionist Set. When we have enough of these for a new adventuring party, a new party will be formed. Here are our stretch goals:
      At $7,500 the Female Dwarven Cleric will be unlocked and added to the Dwarves Vol. 2 Completionist Reward. She will also made available as a $5 add-on.  
      At $10,000 the Male Dwarven Buccaneer will be unlocked and added to the Dwaves Vol. 2 Completionist Reward. He will also be made available as a $5 add-on.
      As we hit these stretch goals, more dwarves will be unleashed!
