  1. I'm moving (which involves a lease break -- ouch) so unless I suddenly become independently wealthy, I'm going to have to go in for a buck (or $5, or whatever the minimal "I'm-going-to-use-the-PM-later" pledge level is) and then tack things on after the fact as things become available. It sucks, because I feel bad not being able to pitch in in any meaningful way during the campaign, but also the timing is just rotten for me personally. I'm excited for Bones IV otherwise.
  2. A giant snail with flail-like heads More hobgoblins Upsized storm and cloud giants Female hill giants Dragon people Tieflings Rakshasa A bigger "eyebeast" (large/suitable for a 2" base) A hag/old crone-style witch Huge/3" base sized cyclops A satyr More mounted stuff A different, bigger troll more in line with their given size in a certain popular role-playing game A nightmare (the steed, not, y'know, horrible dreams) A pegasus Other types of fiends (chained devil, bearded devil, erinyes, yugaloth, etc) Gith A bearier owlbear
  3. This is hilarious and awesome. Though I think if I saw one in a game, I'd find it less humorous and more terrifying!
  4. The ice men/women/creatures cometh. Very cool! Pun not intended.
  5. Thanks! They fit comfortably on 3-inch bases. Thank you! I do too!
  6. No fancy photos currently of these guys. The quilting on their bracers and belts I decided to paint like dragon scales since giants and dragons have such a long-standing hatred for one another, at least in D&D lore. I love these bigger sculpts!
  7. Oh geez. That's quite a gang of ogres! I bought one extra set, so I have 6 of them. And thanks! What skin tone did you choose? I was going for something akin to the 5e Monster Manual.
  8. Got some paint on one of my Bones 3 minis. This is one of the ogre trio. Just phone pics, so I apologize if they look gods-awful. He looks wet because he has a layer of gloss sealer on him. I leant out my matte sealer and I don't have it back yet. When I do, he'll get a coat of that to knock the sheen down. He's destined for the tabletop (as are all my minis really).
  9. My experience has been the same as what's reported. Paint goes on fine after the same short prep work of taking care of mold lines and washing in warm, soapy water. Dry it off and the paint goes on nicely. I'm painting up the ogres first, and wishing I had picked up that armored chieftan! Just another one to get with the retail release. Edit to add: also, I think something that's excited me is that nothing is on a broccoli base that I've noticed so far. That may have been true in Bones 2 as well, but as someone who hasn't yet attempted to base anything, I appreciate that the bases these guys come on is more interesting.
  10. I didn't get in on previous Bones kickstarters, but I've been buying Bones awhile. These feel firmer for the most part. I thought they retooled the formula a little, which also has resulted in slight differences in color. Some of the new formula are gray-ish, but these from Bones 3 are more of an off-white, or mine are. The increased firmness could just be my mind tricking me, but that was my takeaway. Not true of all of them, but the majority of them. There are more that require basic assembly, yes. 2/3 of the ogres, most of the orcs, the Pathfinder troll, and several of the add ons, but nothing too piece-intensive save for the dragons. And the frost giant king, I'd say. He has 3 pieces just for his helm. The weapon sprues are, as had been stated previously, of a far more rigid plastic. Very akin to model kits for like a gunpla model. Or a car, probably.
  11. As I understand it, it is a complete resculpt. And might be larger? He isn't heavy though. At least, not in pieces.
  12. Yeah. I mean, Ma'al is still bigger, but T'Raukzul is still a force to be reckoned with. I'm a bit daunted by the thought of painting mine. I don't have access to an airbrush. I guess I gotta power through a tiny brush challenge sometime, right?
  13. I tried to dry fit mine, but his wings are so heavy that his legs pop back out. He is enormous. I'm not sure how he stacks up against a certain colossal red dragon mini by that other company of coastal mages (I haven't compared yet), but he is real big. I saw someone dry fit T'Raukzul on Facebook using a bunch of rubber bands. I'll try to find it again unless someone posts theirs up first. Edit: photo found!
  14. I got a notice a shipping label was created yesterday, but no movement with it today. Is that common? I have an estimated delivery date, but it's tomorrow, so unless the tracker still hasn't caught up with where the actual package is, I'm gonna guess that was an extra optimistic estimate?
  15. That is awesome! I want one. But uh, I don't have a 3D printer. Sadness. I need a beholder mini though. And Reaper's eyebeast just isn't imposing enough to stand in. In any case, this looks great! And I'll bet at the table the stepping isn't noticeable at all. Do you intend to game with it, or is it for display only?
  16. More folks with stylized armor that fits a theme. The crusaders add-on in Bones 3 was a cool example. I think 77094: Trista, the White Wolf could use some wolf knight friends.
  17. Sadly I'm now unsure if I'll be able to get in on Bones IV. I have a car payment I wasn't planning on having. Hurray. Maybe I can at least sneak in a core set pledge and then pick things up in the PM once it opens.
  18. More demon lords, like a certain two-headed ape creature who recently appeared on a popular Netflix show. The lords of oozes and of gnolls would be cool. Nephal, as mentioned above. Also another eyebeast that would be more appropriate on a 2" base.
  19. A pit fiend that's on the same scale as the bal--fire demon out of Bones II.
  20. A Banderhob. A hippogriff. A goblin/orc riding a worg. A knight on a pegasus. Or griffon. Or hippogriff. Or all of those! A hag/decrepit old witch. Dude angels. A flail snail. A hobgoblin ninja! More monstrous spellcasters.
  21. Yaaaaay! So excited! Fingers crossed for May/June (I understand you can't/are leery of saying anything about a date for reasons, just letting myself get my hopes up)!
  22. Thank you for all of the responses and insights! I'm glad to know that I'm definitely not alone in my approach.
  23. I'm not necessarily looking for advice (which might make this the wrong board, but I wasn't sure where else to go), but I sat down to paint tonight for the first time in too long. I have a habit of having several minis going at once. My girlfriend teases me about it, which is fine, but it did get me to wondering if I'm weird in that regard. What about you folks? Do you tend to paint a mini to completion before you move on to the next one (or finish one group that obviously goes together), or do you have a haphazard mix of WIPs at various stages of completion?
  24. Stellar work. I wish I'd been able to pick this guy up! I'll be eager to see what you do with the rest!
