I'd felt like I was banging my head on a wall with the main mini that I was working on lately, so I set that aside to work on this as a something simple to make me feel a bit better. My first try at NMM, too (which shows ). All I can say is that the contrast really did look better to my eyes until I started taking photos of it. At least it's somewhat made up for by how nice the eyes and the gem on the left bracer turned out.
More photos and thought process at my blog: link
I have a suggestion for how some minis are handled in future kickstarters and sold at retail.
Some items in the various bones kickstarters were offered as part of a set or combined with a group and not available on their own. For the most part that makes sense. The items are grouped and to offer them separately means that people might only buy the thing they want and the less popular items might not be justified.
But some things make sense in multiples. It would have been great to have them to have been allowed to be bought on their own, or in multiples or to be sold in bundles of themselves.
As an example, The wall of fire... I wanted to get 180' of wall of fire recently... at each one representing a 5' square, that's 36 individual pieces. They sell in set of 3 for $5. So the 180' is $60 worth of wall of fire...
Most stores (including reaper) don't have enough in stock. It would have been very convenient to just stock up on them during the kickstarter. There are a couple figures like that in the bones 4 kickstarter too...
So my suggestion would be for things that make sense in multiples. Offer then on their own, but in a number that makes them usable. Like the wall of fire could have been offered as a "wall of fire bundle" with 10, or 20, or 36 for whatever kickstarter price would be appropriate. So 10 for $10, or 36 for $50... but with the reasoning that one does not need a single 5' wall of fire... This could also be done on the Reaper store... A pack of 4 is fine, but the option to get a pack of 10 or more would be great as well.
Just a thought.
