    Bones Kickstarter #3 Discussion

    So is this like last time, where more can be added onto an order AFTER the Kickstarter has ended? I want to hop on now, but due to being on bi-weekly pay, and this Kickstarter being absurdly short (to me), I want to just grahb a spot and worry about adding funds later. But if that's a no-go this time around, I may have to just pass up this time.
  2. Can we get more townsfolk? I seriously need a full set for campaigns, and Bones only has a few. Some villagers, clergy, bandits, etc from the old Dar Heaven townsfolk sets would be a most welcome addition.
  3. I would disagree about it NOT being immoral--in fact, it seems to be precisely, blatantly immoral. As you said, definitely not illegal, but seeing as morality is literally defined as, "principles concerning the distinction between right and wrong or good and bad behavior," and honesty IS a black-and-white, right or wrong thing (no matter the grounds, we all learned in kindergarten that lying is wrong and honesty is right, regardless of consequence), and DIShonesty is immoral (wrong), I would say it IS clearly immoral. Just because something is the norm does not mean that it is moral. :2cents:
  4. I don't know if this been brought up before, but I figured this might be the thread to do it. I understand some people may face financial hardships after investing in a Kickstarter and so will sell upon fulfillment to pay off debts or whatnot; it's understandable, and commendable to part with something you might have enjoyed in order to face up to sudden responsibilities like an adult. But there all ready seems to be a flood of Bones II packages for sale on eBay--a lot of them wave 1 slots people seem to have taken simply to make money by selling the sets for 2-3x the amount they paid as backers. Does Reaper, or anyone else, have any opinions about this?

    [SPLIT] Bones 2 Pre-Shipping Excitement

    Does 91001: Stone from Bones II remind anyone else of Cole from Brom's Devil's Rose or Roland from The Dark Tower? Definitely excited to get my hands on a good gunslinger Bones mini so I can expand my current campaign into something a bit more... surreal

    Bones Iron Golem Verdigris Practice WIP

    This type of stuff? http://static1.jetpens.com/images/a/000/009/9882.jpg I think Massive Voodoo uses India ink as well--the bottle looks very familiar. Definitely putting that on my list of things to try! Luckily I have two, and so I'll have a chance to try both. I've been finding rust effects with paint quite a bit difficult--from what I've seen with other painters, pigments tend to work best in order to 'weather' things up. Thank you for all the input and feedback! This is definitely a fun project so far. Check out Siri's guide in the Painting Advice section. Also check out my Wyrmgear WIP that I am currently wprking through. It was fairly simple to follow and turned out better than I thought it would. Awesome, will do!

    Bones Iron Golem Verdigris Practice WIP

    Thank you!
  14. I've always wanted to do a verdigris miniature. It's been nearly 13 months since I first picked up a brush, and while I still have a lot to learn, I am far more comfortable trying new things now as opposed to when I started. Anyway, this is my WIP Iron Golem. I wanted to do light verdigris--not fully consumed metal, and so I kept my effect to the places that I thought would be weathered most. While it wasn't in progress in this set of pictures, I had only just slapped on my base layers, I am also going to attempt a rust-effect on the sword. For the metal, I've used a combination of four paints: Reaper Scorched Metal, Reaper Ancient Bronze, Reaper Antique Gold and Vallejo Game Colour Brassy Brass. For the base coat, I mixed equal parts Ancient Bronze and Scorched Metal to Brassy Brass in order to create a dark, brownish-red metal nearly that of a mahogany. Then, I used different combinations of the Ancient Bronze, Brass Brass and Antique Gold and layered highlight upon highlight, to give the metal a realistic-look. The verdigris has (so far) consisted of: Vallejo Game Colour Turquoise, Reaper Surf Aqua and Reaper Mint Green. I made MANY different combinations of the paints to build up the verdigris, about 7 or 8, from greener hues to more blueish, brighter hues, so I can't really give too much of a recipe guide unfortunately. In places where I wanted the verdigris less prominent, such as the shadows under the arms or in the small of the back, etc., I used heavily diluted Army Painter Strong Tone Ink. To give some of the verdigris a greener tint in places where I wanted it to have less "pop," I used heavily diluted Army painter Soft Tone Ink, as it is a very soft, almost tan brown. Anyways, the mini is about 65% completed, and while I know that that's a bit far along for a WIP, i really wanted to try and document at least SOME of my progress to get some input, suggestions and opinions.
  15. Thank you very much! She's a tough little mini, but she's also one of the most unique and interesting Reaper has to offer, IMO.
