  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.

    Looks good! Glad to see someone else starting with the ogres. I find it interesting we went with different skin tones... I really like your choice. I got the command set and bought 2 extra sets of the base ogre trio, so I'm trying to paint 11 at once :/

     

     

    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.

    For those that have started painting on this set, how is the paint going on? Has the formula change effected how you need to (or specifically avoid) thinking your paints for a base coat? I have painted a couple nonKickstarter bones from a couple Christmases ago but mostly my experience is with first Kickstarter Bones.

    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.

    To get my Bones 3 fix, I watched a couple of unboxing videos on Youtube. For those of you who have already received their Bones, what would you say about the quality (detail) of them? On the average the same as Bones 2 or better? Harder? Less bendy?

     

    one video showed that the Orc miniatures have to be assembled (nothing major, only glue in the arms, which I actually prefer) ... was that the case for everybody?

     

     

    Watching those videos, I'm quite impressed with the detail on a lot of the human-sized miniatures (the larger ones were always better).

    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.

    The metal version weighs close to 3 pounds, as my wrists know very well...  Its the heaviest metal dragon i have ever done.  does anyone know how different the bones cast is from the metal?  it looks different

    As I understand it, it is a complete resculpt. And might be larger? He isn't heavy though. At least, not in pieces.

    T'raukzul (hope I spelled that correctly) is THAT big???

     

    And here I oreded Ma'al too because I wanted a big dragon.

     

    *** Faints***

    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?

    Anyone got a pic or several of t'raukzul, by any chance? I've heard such lovely things, am quite excited

    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!

    So here is how it works.

     

    We are shipping a LOT of packages.  So many more than normal we get once a day pick up on a special trailer truck.  This special trailer truck requires we put all the boxes onto pallets and load the truck with the pallets.  So no, none of yesterday's orders would have tracking updated as they didn't get picked up from here until afternoon today.  They'll go to the UPS sort center and get scanned in and start their journey home to you.

    Thanks for the clarification!

  10. 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?

  11. 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?
