  1. Cow dragons just remind me I want cows...and chickens, and more pigs. One pig is a good start though.
  2. I suppose I mean...the arguments of "no one's making you buy it" or "it's still a great deal" don't work on me so I wouldn't expect them to appease people in the KS comments. A couple years ago I was backing a different Kickstarter and the fans of the brand were overwhelmingly negative towards anyone who criticized or questioned and it was just a huge echo chamber. I wouldn't want the same thing to happen here where we feel the need to gang up on people offering suggestions or mentioning what they don't like. Sometimes people just want to be heard. Snake boobs are a good example wh
  3. Maybe I don't understand. I'll take a step back if that helps keep the good vibe.
  4. I'm sorry are my 4 posts on this thread really putting someone out? Taking up valuable digital space? How about we all express our opinions as we like in a friendly manner. I'm not sure why some get categorized as complaining when other critical posts do not. I have a few posts about the minis I'm excited about, presumably those ones are okay?
  5. Here is why I don't like that argument. There is a limited number of things that will get made in Bones during this Kickstarter. So it's not so much that one doesn't get dollar value from the core set, it's that space / releases taken up by creatures we already have (griffon, owlbear, another set of gobs that I didn't think we needed when they got released in B3) versus new creatures (certain elementals, more variety on certain giants, see my list from earlier). That said I'm only complaining here amongst Reaper regulars and only because I'm a big Reaper fan and plan to be buying f
  6. Speaking of wish lists I must politely repeat my request for a wish list on the Reaper website. There are a lot of figures in this kickstarter I have my eye on getting in metal, and a few I discovered while looking for those. And I always need to remember what paint I'm low on. I'm just saying, help me with my addiction please.
  7. Welcome to the forums! We love to see everyone's art around here! So long as no one gets their hopes up about what will realistically make into the kickstarter.
  8. Just saw this in OneBoot's summaries on the info thread from a couple days ago. I wonder if we will hear (maybe after the fact) which were the more popular add-ons and such?
  9. I agree the snakes with glands thing is silly, but it's also just part of a bigger problem in fantasy gaming in general. Folks have been asking for more female minis, so if you make a snake one how do you distinguish it? Give your snake people long hair or something? I think it's fine and don't blame the sculptor or Reaper for how silly gender stuff just already is in D&D, at least they listened and we are getting more lady characters.
  10. I hope that bird head is a cockatrice...I really need some cockatrices...
  11. Painting, obviously. You think I have time for family with all these unpainted minis? They're my family now...*creepy laugh* Now that I've gone full circle and started to get a lot of hero sized minis in metal, I appreciate the full Reaper catalogue here. They have a Townsfolk IV: Bandits set that's really nice. Also I had already gotten some of the guys from the last Kickstarter in metal (the bandit-y club holding leather wearing guys) without realizing I was about to get them in Bones too. But I'm always happy to see more bandits, townsfolk, and NPCs (LOVED the set of t
  12. I absolutely know why you would not do it. But in my mind, selling a "new" batch of Goblins when your retailers are selling the "old" goblins is basically the same thing. Or heck, do a KS with prices equal to retail and I bet people would still back it. Everyone keeps saying the point of Bones KS is to get new models into Bones but then the same monsters come up again and again.
  13. I keep thinking Reaper should do a "Best of Bones" or "Bones Classics" Kickstarter. Basius did something similar. Sell existing Bones minis in packs that are slightly cheaper than retail but probably more expensive than the original KS price was. For every repeat backer who already has enough goblins and kobolds (me) there's always someone brand new to Reaper who seems to want to use the KS to obtain things Reaper already has at retail. So why not cater it to those people? I'm not trying to be whiny (it comes naturally I don't have to try) but I already have 3 iteration
  14. I really hope I can get the pig and cart by themselves when they split up the core. Otherwise I'll be waiting for retail. We have started to prefer getting heroes in metal for better detail. I agree with a lot of other people, I didn't need another set of Goblins in B3 and the same is true today. Other than checking all the boxes on missing dragons I don't need more generic dragons either. So far looks like I'll be getting the crab/croc group by itself and the not-modrons. We are repeat backers but I haven't even bothered to put in my $1 pledge yet since there is no rus
  15. Linen white is a great one, I go through it too. Also pure black, shadowed stone, golden shadow, muddy soil, walnut brown, blackened brown. But it's possible I'm a bit careless with my paints and put too much out thereby needlessly going through faster than I should.
  16. Skin tone was just the olive skin triad (maybe mixed with dark skin highlight for the darkest layer? I can't remember). Yellow was the HD pale saffron for the base coat than mixed with linen white for lighter shades. I was attempting to give it a bit of a "washed out" or older look and find mixing with white seems to do just that to certain shades.
  17. July/August: 1. Sir Conlan (Show-Off) 2-5. Winter wolves and regular wolves (Show-Off) 6-13. Bugbear Warriors (Show-Off) 14-17. Hobgoblins (Show-Off) 18-19. Ogre Chieftain & Ogre Matriarch (Show-Off) 20-22. Bones 3 Ogres (Show-Off) 23-31. 9 more bugbears (Show-Off) 32. Lem, Iconic Bard (Show-Off) 33-40. 8 More Hobgoblins (Show-Off) 41-44. 4 desert hobgobs (Show-Off) 45-62. 18 Bones I goblins (Show-Off)
  18. Needed some more ogres so started painting up some of the new ones from Bones 3. These two were really cool and fun to paint. Thanks for reading!
  19. Since I was one of the people most excited about Hobgobageddon in Bones 3 I was pretty excited to start painting these guys up. I still have 12 individuals left after this (or 3 more color configurations to try) but these were the first four. I tried to give them white armor because I thought it would provide an interesting contrast to their skin. Their skin is auburn shadow mixed and highlighted with carrot top red. Anyways, they were a lot of fun unfortunately some detail on their faces was lost in the bones process but the rest of the minis were wonderfully detailed and fun to paint. Thanks
  20. Well you don't get too far in too many D&D campaigns without needing some bugbears. It came up and it was time to finally start painting what I had. I had 8 total of this particular model and still some more to go of the other ones. But here's the first 8. Base skin is russet brown mixed with and highlighted with blonde shadow. Thanks for reading!
  21. Painted up all the wolves I had. This included the two new winter wolves from the "Chill Out" / yeti pack from Bones 3 (I had a duplicate set) and 2 from the companion animals packs (also had 2 sets). Thanks for reading!
  22. Painted up this hero as a break from some of the groups of figures I've been doing lately. His eyes didn't come out very well, but it was a bit difficult to get under his hood. Since he's only painted for tabletop quality I'm okay with how it turned out. Thanks for reading!
  23. Trying to get through some of my Bones I minis so wanted to paint up this spider. My huz had the idea of having him climbing down a web. Then it was just a matter of what to attach a web to? Remembered I had some archways in Bones 3. This one looked about ideal. The web was made with regular sewing thread. The clear bit is just a cocktail stick and the base is from milliput and basius. Anyways, thanks for reading!
  24. Painted up this merchant and his henchmen that I picked up a while ago. He is of course flamboyantly dressed but his underlings are not given the same courtesy. Thanks for reading!
