What bones are retired

Recommended Posts

I from a post I saw the other day that the big skeletal dragon from bones one is gone forever. Are any others retired?

      The giant Kaladrax was "retired" because it was never meant to be that big - after the Kickstarter in which Kaladrax was produced, there was a miscommunication between Reaper and the people producing the mold for it, and the mold was cut much larger than Reaper had originally intended the piece to be. However, Reaper being awesome people, they made the decision to go with the larger size, which cost them some profit on each piece.

But eventually, the costs of the extra packaging, shipping, etc., became prohibitively expensive and the decision was made to have it discontinued in its original size. From a strictly profit viewpoint, it's rather amazing that Reaper continued to produce the larger Kaladrax as long as it did.

 

   There were a number of Bones minis from earlier Kickstarters that ended up with some casting issues, but as far as I know all (or all but one or two) have been retooled to correct those issues and are still for sale.

I'm betting that they never did make more of Kaladrax, that all they were selling was the first production run. That is, what was left after KS fulfillment. 

(I'm assuming that the ones they sold after the KS weren't sold with a loss. )

 

It's so big that the market for it is pretty limited. It's very difficult to use it in most games, so it's mostly painters and collectors that would be interested. And quite a few of those got theirs through the KS, or from resellers that also got stock from the KS.  

 

Lets hope they rescale it and bring it back, so that people can do a 4day challenge...
