I was just wondering with the success of the bones line if in the future we might see LTPK with bones included? Anyone else think this is a good idea??

Nothing's really been confirmed or denied, but it's an idea that's being kicked about. I'd say it looks likely to happen at some point.

it's not a bad idea, I mean it would lower reaper's cost per unit quite a bit in they used bones over metal mini's, I for one would buy into it if i didn't already have the kits when they get around to them.

I wouldn't mind seeing one Bones one metal, but not both Bones.
I personally feel that metal is easier to learn with, compared to the polymer, and that is the point of the kits.
I'd rather see separate kits for Bones that might focus more on creatures or unnatural things, rather than change the existing kits. That way, it would be easy to explain what a new painter might expect when painting the polymer after painting metal.

Made some comments on the LTPK thread:
http://www.reapermin...s/page__st__315

Replacing metals with Bones can mean more figures per package, as well as replacing the brush-on primer with another color -- such as the third paint in a triad!

I think this was addressed in the 'Paint Kits' thread.

First page even.

They were numbered in the order they came out, which was not necessarily the order of learning. Changing numbers at this time would be... difficult.

We are going to change the format of the LTPKs when the KS Bones are available, and the LTPKs will include Bones figures instead of metal, a new guidebook utilizing both the new figures and several years of experience at working with beginners to make it clearer and easier to use. Possibilities of including a DVD or Flash Drive with painting videos have been discussed, and are still open here.

This rocks being a amature painter I think it would be awsome for the newbies to get more for their buck. Plus you ALWAYS have left over paints in the sample pots that end up going to waste

Since they've been providing full-size dropper bottles, this has been less of an issue. ::):

I was referring to the sample pots the dropper bottles actually do a better job at keeping the paints fresh than I thought they would, but the samples you get tend to dry up probally because they are in a cheaper container

Yeah, that's why I bought directly from Reaper. I'm wary of OLGS because who knows how long they had the LTPK in stock.

Last Knight was referring to the fact that the Learn To Paint Kits recently havent had any sample pots in them - they have all been (temporarily?) replaced by full size dropper bottles because of issues with the supplier of the sample pots.

If Reaper continue using all full size bottles, then the sample pots obviously arent going to be a problem.
