There is no necessary correlation between the color of the plastic and consistency of the plastic. There are gray Bones figures that are just as floppy as the floppiest white Bones figures.

 

The driver for adding more plasticizer (as I understand it) is to make removal of complex figures from a two part mold easier (or possible). The question, then, is whether you can get all four legs to mold and eject reliably with harder plastic, and I'm not the person who can answer that.

 

 

    It was my understanding that they used the grey color to indicate a Bones material that they were making that was stiffer than the regular white material.  That is why they used it for the all the structures in the Graveyard Expansion in Bones 3; so you wouldn't get ridiculous wavy walls.  Also for the BFG, so the barrel wouldn't be a warped mess.   And the weapon sprues.  Certainly the anecdotal evidence of the figures in the grey material I got in Bones 3 were much stiffer then your run of the mill white bones.

 

Can anyone verify this?

Is there any special meaning to "glow" in the names of some paints in set B, or are they just vivid colors?

Is the intent with the Dreadmere Land Terrapin to make the pack, saddle and bridle removable for added versatility?

 

(Love Izzy's concept art, as always :wub:)

Wowzers.  I think I'm more excited for the Dreadmere designs than I am for anything so far in the Core set.  :D  I *love* the aesthetic.  Is there any backstory on the inspiration behind all of this?  (E.g., are these designs done with any particular system/setting/campaign in mind?  Or is there any particular region or time period that's serving as inspiration for the styles?)

Day 15 Infobits Summary part 1:

 

Quote

will we be able to see the boat and raft during the live stream?

-

@TheMandolin - I will inquire. We are printing as many models as we can, but printing is not a fast process.

 

Quote

it's in the update, but I wanted to be clear that the model can be assembled without the legs if you want a house, or with if you want Baba Yaga's Hut

-----

if the roof comes off i will be extremely interested

-

@Eric Neumann - it is not deigned with an interior. Traditionally, the hut is rather tardis-like, and has many more rooms than can actually be modeled.

-----

is it a solid piece or is it 4 walls and roof you assemble?

-

@Omnislush - the print we have is solid, although I suppose it could be put on mold as walls. This would definitely be a Ron Hawkins question

-----

 

Note: The following quotes are from Ron Hawkins (aka ReaperRon).

 

Quote

Kevin's working on something terribly horrible. Bobby's working on something cute but kick-broccoli.

 

Quote

Regarding Baba Yaga's Hut

 

honestly, we haven't finalized plans for production just yet. I'm fairly certain that this will not be a solid piece of plastic.

-----

I'm also fairly certain that it will be in multiple parts.

-----

We'll give you guys a good look at it during the Livestream this Saturday.

-----

We'll make it as easy to assemble as possible. Right now, there are several options on the table for production.

-----

Kelly - it's very possible and very likely that the roof would be removable so that it's hollow on the inside. That said, the hut was not designed to have a finished interior.

-----

But please everyone, remember: we're *very* early into this project, and we'll try to keep this thing as hollow, as easy to assemble, and as functional as possible. BUT...we're not guaranteeing anything at this moment. That said, we will try our darnedest to make you guys enthusiastically happy when you get it in your hands. :)

 

Day 15 continued below.

 

Huzzah!

Day 15 Infobits Summary part 2 (last one for Day 15):

 

Note: The following quotes are all from Ron Hawkins (aka ReaperRon).

 

Quote

Sir Forscale Chibi - maybe. Just a matter of time. :)

 

Quote

Oh, by the way, Kickstarter Countdown party Saturday, September 2nd! Come join us for free pizza, snacks, fun and prizes! Oh, and counting down Bones 4 too!

 

Quote

Oooh, Bob Ridolfi just sent me some pictures of some greens he's been working on....very nice....

 

Quote

Now I could really go for a Roc with a properly sized elephant in its claws. That would be epic!

-

Kyle - wouldn't that be cool? Maybe not practical, but cool.

 

Quote

Love the hut, love the legs! Only quibble is Baba Yaga's hut is classically supposed to have no doors or windows...

-

Kay - yeah, but it didn't look " as cool", and, it wouldn't be as multifunctional. :)

 

Quote

I notice that there is not as many dragons this time (hope there is some to come) but will there be any other large dragon like pieces

-

 

Ben - dragon lovers, get ready...you're not forgotten!

 

Quote

I don't think they can top Ma'al Drakar from B3, but I welcome reaper to prove me wrong.

-

Matthew - that will be very tough. But we must try!

 

Quote

Is Giant Frog 1 the same as Giant Frog 2?

-

Paul - The graphic shows that they're the same, but we're waiting on the render for Frog #2. Will update that graphic when we can.

 

Quote

Ridolfi sculpt(s) 20 questions: 
1) is it alive (non-planar): yes. plural !! 
2) does it have more than 4 limbs: (awaiting reply)

-

Enos - two legs each!

 

[Note from OneBoot: I'm not sure if this stretch goal has been revealed yet or not, and if it has, what model(s) it is]

 

End of Day 15.

 

Huzzah!

Day 16 Infobits Summary part 1:

 

Quote

Are the paints HD? [referring to Paint Set B]

-

@Harrek - those are MSP Core Colors

-----

@Kitenerd - all of them are new colors. The Kickstarter is they first time they will be offered, and after fulfillment we will offer them in retail

 

Quote

Are the legs only addable at assembly? I.E. do they need to be glued in place if used? [referring to the legs on Baba Yaga's Hut]

-

@Taylor - you should be able to not have to glue them in, although I cannot promise that there won't be stability issues.

 

Quote

Any idea how tall the legs for baba yaga's hut are? I'd really like to get an idea if a player's mini would be able to fit under the thing

-

@Ant - about 2" is the gap from the floor of the mini to the surface of the table

 

Quote

@Elli - Ma'al Drakar is billed as "The Mother of all Dragons", which implies she is female.

 

Quote

[do] the "glow" paints actually glow - as in emit light / glow in the dark. Or are just named that way for their shade / cool name for the color.

-

@Todd - they do not glow in the dark, nor fluoresce. They are named so for the visual effects one can achieve when using them

 

Quote

Suppose you Pledge $200. In the PM, when we open it for orders (it's a calculator until we confirm payment to kickstarter) you can begin spending your "pledge credit". You can place as many orders as you want until it closes, paying each time. You will begin with a $200 credit. which you can spend all at once, or incrementally, as well as adding new funds once the credit is spent

 

Quote

@Olivier - we just haven't gotten to the Pathfinder goals.

 

Quote

@Coralline - Bones Paints are limited to 54 SKUs because that's what the racks hold. The racks for the Core Set hold hundreds.

-----

@Zombified, the distinction between HD and Bones is negligible, but HD/Bones basically cover better but need more thinning to be used in layering

 

Quote

what if we do more than one capstone?

[capstone meaning very large awesome mini that generally shows up near the end of the KS project]

Day 16 KS Infobits Summary part 2:

 

Quote

Baba Yaga is flying in her magic Mortar and Pestle. It's part of traditional mythology

 

Quote

we see about 30 backers a day drop out. Is a remarkably consistent metric for the previous 10 days. While simultaneously gaining a net positive approaching 100 backers a day, give or take. So +130, -30

 

Quote

 is there a rear shot of the tree?

-

we will do a turnaround on the livestream

 

Quote

I want to do a Baba Yaga's Treehouse of Woe. Can I get a size comparison and balance test on your live video on Saturday. I am thinking of something like this. http://i.imgur.com/3JOafJV.jpg

-

@David + Katie Schumm - we can do that for the livestream, sure. A little modification may be required to the treetops since they're not flat

 

Note: The following quotes are all from Ron Hawkins (aka ReaperRon).

 

Quote

if I add some paints will they be sent out the same time as the minis ?

-

Jason - Yup, all rewards sent out at the same time! :)

 

Quote

So any chance we'll see any Savage Worlds Bones as part of this KS?

-

Royal - None planned at the moment. But things can and do change.

 

Quote

Rhonda's working on some stuff you guys have already seen, but you haven't seen painted yet. :)

-----

[Rhonda] The High Rollers!

 

Quote

I think the Kobold leaders are super cool. But yeah, we're done with Kobolds for a while now. :)

 

Quote

So, Joseph Wolf wanted to have a type of pack animal that would be good in a swamp environment, so he came up with the giant terrapin. I pitched it to Izzy and *WHAM* she knocked it out of the park. Grand slam homerun. Couldn't be happier with her art from this.

-----

Izzy's responsible for most of the stuff in the Dreadmere expansion. Mostly.

 

Day 16 continued below.

      About this project
       

      Thank you for taking the time to check out Divinity: Original Sin 2, our biggest and most ambitious RPG to date!
      A couple of quick facts about the game:
      Divinity: Original Sin 2 is a single- and multiplayer top-down, party-based role-playing game with pen & paper RPG-like levels of freedom.It features turn-based combat, a strong focus on systematic gameplay and a well-grounded narrative. Divinity: Original Sin 2 is the sequel to the critically acclaimed Divinity: Original Sin, winner of over 150 Game of the Year awards and nominations. Winner of GameSpot’s “PC Game of The Year 2014â€. Divinity: Original Sin 2 is currently in development for PC in English. Subtitles will be available in German, French, and Russian. Other platforms and languages may be announced at a later stage, once development is more advanced.
      The theme of Divinity: Original Sin 2 is how your origins affect who you are and what chances you get in life.
      At the start of the game, you pick a single character and determine your starting stats, race, and origin story.

      You'll be able to recruit up to three companions, each of whom is just as detailed as the character you're playing, with their own origin story and motivation to help you in your quest.
      This makes it possible for each companion to become a player character in multiplayer mode; every party member is equally important to the whole.

      In multiplayer, up to 4 players can play together, either cooperatively or competitively.
      During competitive questing, you’ll pursue different plot-lines from other players, often because your personal motivations are in conflict with those of the party.
      To loot or not to loot: You'll have to argue, reason, or duke it out.
      There's no obligation to compete, of course. Many party members will manage to balance their own interests with those of the party. Should you find yourself in conflict, know that it's always possible to make up afterwards.
      The important thing here is that it's you who gets to make that choice.

      Hi Here's a couple of my recent mini's. Both of them are them are metal.
      I modified Eando to have a Halberd, which I made using weapons from the Crusaders weapons pack.
      I used a hobby knife to cut his hand away from his thigh, then used epoxy to try to recreate part of his hand.

       
      I added a gladius style sword to the Valkyrie, i added it to be back side because I didn't want it interfering with the shield hand,
      But in retrospect I think I could have added it to her left hip instead.Unfortunately I took the 3rd pic later, and it suffers from poor lighting.

       
      I tried to shade both these mini's to have opposing light and dark edges on their weapons, which is kind of visible in the pictures.

      So I started working on this guy back in March, he was just basecoated with the pattern established (which was based on Rhonda Bender's beautiful example.) This afternoon I decided to pull him off of the Shelf of Shame and finish him up. 
      I should've gone a size up on the base. And as usual, my pictures are terrible but I'm tired. 
       
      C&C always very welcome.

      Hello everyone,
       
      Over in the Bones 4 Kickstarter enthusiasm thread, there seemed to be quite a few people calling for a list of the new bones figures coming because of the kickstarter. I had a spreadsheet that I'd been using for the previous kickstarters and have tacked a Bones 4 sheet onto it. This is open for editing by anyone to edit and fix things I've missed.
       
      https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1dFN0lQL096zQMq8KG5aXcgrA7-VEIEoU6W-ujck7kj4/edit#gid=142862380 (same as linked in my signature).
       
      Entries are group by set (core, expansions, add ons, etc) and sorted by display order on the Kickstarter images.
      Reference numbers are from the Kickstarter images -- for the most part, some are made up to make discussions easier.
      The colors of the "Reference #" and "Group" columns match the colors of the backgrounds of the Kickstarter update images or for late additions, the Pledge Manager.
       
      Specifically for the Bones 4 sheet several of the rows have red background colors. The red background "Name" entries are where I've not been able to determine the correct name from either update images or sneak preview videos. Red background "Existing Part #" entries are where I've not been able to determine if the figure is a new sculpt or what the existing figure's number is.
       
      One thing you'll notice is that there are counts in columns E-F of all sheets, and a date entry field in column G. These counts come from my Bones Kickstarter painted mini tracking spreadsheet. Column E is a full count of the figures you'd receive if you pledged for one of everything in the Kickstarter (except count of bases). Column F is a count of minis that are painted. G2 is a count of unpainted minis and H2 is a percentage of collection that is unpainted.
       
      Hopefully this is helpful to others out there.
