  1. So, the scale question is a little tricky to answer as 1. that may be subject to change and 2. I've intentionally made some shorter and some taller for variety purposes. That said, currently they stand at about 2/3rds the size of Sir Forscale if that helps :) The eyes are oversized and would certainly fall somewhere between normal and chibi size. I'll put some pictures here that might give you a better look. I'm really glad to hear of all the plans to get kids playing or fill a gap for current young adventurers. As a nerdy mom it makes me extra excited to offer somethi

  2. For those of you asking, here are the renders for the other kids. The polar bear (Tuktu) has already been resized to about twice as big as pictured here.

  4. like here's a quick mock up of how i would do it. i'd slice the back of hte neck near the soldiers and take a wedge out, and do the same under the chin. I'd bend the neck forwards and tilt the head up, and putty fill both gaps to get it to stay then i think i'd sculpt in mane to cover the gaps so i dont' have to get the pebbly skin exactly right ...now i want one

  5. I like the dragonwolf he got on my "stuff to buy if I don't get the core" list stats for the similar "Blightwolf" came out in 2000, a month before the 3rd ed Monster Manual as d20 OGL Never used one in a game, but always meant to.

  6. I painted this dude up as my technomancer for our Starfinder campaign. The idea is his coat is very tech-ey. I used a Bones Chronoscope miniature and modded in some antenna. Also slightly purple skin, cause this is a Lashunta.

  7. Here we have 03865, some briarlings. Two sets. Base in Brown Liner, dry brush a nice reddish brown (8:5 Clear Red/Jade Green), lighter dry brush with Aged Bone. Slather Dragon White in the eye sockets, and follow it up with a thin layer of Quinacridone Magenta. Oh, and I dry brushed some Spruce Green on the bases. I didn't really want to invest the time in fancy bases for four identical minions. These'll do fine. They took a grand total of about 4 hours for the lot, starting from raw metal and finishing with the photo. It was super-satisfying

  8. Yes, the larger pets will all have separate integral bases. We wanted a variety of pets, some that were attached to the main figure and some that were separate to suit different player needs/wants. Currently the wolf, dragon, polar bear, tiger, and ram are separate figures. The toucan, owl, and ferret are attached.

  11. and also Ron Hawkins10 minutes ago For those of you expressing interest in Siege Engine crews, that's a great idea. I don't think it's going to happen in the KS proper, but I think a crew or crews could possibly be a thing for the Pledge Manager.

  12. For some reason Kickstarter seems to bring out a lot of complaining. "We would get more $$ faster if only Reaper would do things my way", "I hate that a specific mini is mixed in with the minis I want" and my least favorite, "Could everyone stop asking for something I don't want." I entered my mounted Trista at RCon, not because she was my best piece I have done lately but because I wanted to show what you can do with the mounted minis I lobbied for in Bones 4. That dragon wolf looks cool, interesting and unique.

  13. Wow, it's a buzzkill to hear that something that I championed so hard last time around (Dragon Wolf) caused so much hatred and discontent. To the artist that made my idea a reality ( @Rainbow Sculptor, I think?)---thank you very much.

  18. I just love those sculpts more each time I see them. SO. MUCH. CHARACTER. I believe that we need to adopt "the Forscale" as an official unit of measurement. These kids are 2/3 Forscales tall; the catoblepas is approximately 2.5 Forscales from base to top of head (that measurement is pulled from my butt as example usage), and so forth. Reaper, the little M and B cubes are great, but really just start including a Sir Forscale with every mini photo in the online store. And also, @Rainbow Sculptor, does that wolf pup have a little plush CHEW TOY under its paw?! OMG I love

  19. As a Bones KS newbie, I've found reading through this thread interesting trying to figure out what to expect. I'm really glad I did because the extra pictures and opinions have got me more excited about minis that didn't initially grab me, like the Goroloth (much cooler to me in the other angles you posted, thanks @TaleSpinner!), Valfuryx the green dragon (I didn't even realize it was the same model for over a day because the stumpy tail in the outdated KS pic was such an immediate turnoff), and yeah, the Dragon Wolf too. Mostly because the head fur of the Dragon Wolf is shaggier than I prefer

  20. On the recommendation of People Whose Opinion I Value [A.K.A. Fellow Forumites] I looked up the Wendy's RPG and downloaded the PDF before going off to the local Wally World. After finishing my foraging expedition I nipped in to the Wendy's, conveniently located on the access road to the W.W., to pick up lunch for SWMBO and self. I asked the kid at the counter about their new promotional campaign [blank face] that is a Wendy's RPG [still blank face, BUT] the guy at the next register who was head down doing something with the touch screen jerked his head up and looked at me with the widest

  23. HAHA I have lots and lots of ideas I'd love to do within the kid heroes genre. I got to explore quite a bit of cultural variety in this set which was a ton of fun. Things like alternative races and various ages/classes would all be things I'd like to get more into.

  27. Not offended at all. I have often thought that a Bones repositioning class would be a good one for me to teach. Guess what class I'll be teaching and with what mini in two years. Not inappropriate at all. Frankly i had the same feeling wen i first got the concept (I'm about as old school as they come). The issue is with 5e base rules that often conflict with the descriptions of the creatures. It must fit on a 2 inch base or a sizable amount of 5e players wont buy it; but it can't fit on said base and still match the description. Catch 22 for Reaper. Hence th

  31. Big mail day yesterday! Got my first Dungeon in a Box. And I'm kinda impressed. So here's my initial review. The only real negative I have so far I'll lay out first: it mailed in a clear plastic sleeve for an envelope, which is okay, but it had no protection and so got dinged up a bit in the post. Not bad, but you know. Here's the box. Pleasing design, really. Included is an adventure, which imma read. This was the biggest draw for me initially, so hoping they've got some good and fun writing. And then some minis! And no

  36. This image would be cool on a t-shirt, with the start dates, finish dates and number of minis in each kickstarter on the back. Maybe even include the average buy-in amount. "See sweetie, I didn't really spend THAT much money, comparatively".

  38. So, that giant box of doom of shaving samples and my new shave lather bowl didn't come in, but on the flipside this came in a week earlier than they said it would... Still waiting on the scenery pack, but that'll probably be next week. The part that's going to "suck" though? Some of those minis are 10-12 pieces each, eeeeeep.

  41. It's okay, already got a back story for it. The Bridge of Stout-Lager This bridge exists on a disused former trade road that once ran between the Dwarven mountains and the Goblin plains. It was built during the reigns of High King Snorri "Boilermaker" Arnulfson and Grand Biggest Boss Yag "Fartflinger" Yagsprog as a cooperative effort to attempt to establish trading relationships between the Dwarf and Goblin domains. All went well, with separate Dwarf and Goblin crews working toward a common meeting point at the river crossing now known as "Busted Keg" by the Goblins and

  46. Most of our "fall color" is safety orange. In a lot of places they are still repairing road damage from last winter. I was out today and spotted some pretty leaves and berries. Don't know what they are except "not edible for humans". The reason I was out is that it is quilt show season. This was a favorite in the show today.
