    I'm pretty underwhelmed by this Kickstarter.  I mean it's nice that they're expanding their range. But I think I'm still set from all the base add-ons I got in Bones 5.  Was really hoping there'd be some problem-solving additions like sprues of items for basing, and small oval bases for things like mounts.  There's just not a lot of NEW here that improves on the things I already have.

    Base inserts are neat, but seem impractical when paired with a miniature line that's largely got sculpted on terrain.

    The lack of any stretch goals kind of makes this a dud for me. Just nothing to really motivate me to buy bulk bases ahead of time, especially when Bones 6 is around the corner with more enticing offerings.

    This is sort of what I'm feeling. I'm ok with the base inserts, I end up cutting a lot of my minis off the sculpted base and butting it on another, but there just isn't enough there for me to be that interested. Basing sprues of interesting little items would be really cool too, or maybe something like the green stuff rollers to shape clay bases. It's useful enough if you're looking to get your hand on more bases, but I'm still drowning in them from the core set bonuses and the last base boss ks.

  2. All told, it looks like I'll be coming out at a little over $300 for this KS, which is about what I usually spend on Reaper's kickstarters. Only difference this time is I didn't get a core set, but that beautiful pirate ship makes up for that. 

    Kid Heroes

    Armory x2

    Halloween Knight

    Dark Depths

    Brinewind+Extension

    Dragonfolk

    All the siege equipment

    The Boat

     

    Still eyeing the Kobolds because I like lots of little mooks, and the dice for posterity, but probably not.

  3. Right now I'm in for:

    Kid Heroes

    Armory x2

    Dark Depths

    Dragonfolk

    Catapult

    Ballista

    Trebuchet

    The Incredible Boat

     

    Since I buy mostly for use in tabletop games and I've got a ton of basic PCs and monsters from the last couple KS, I'm a bit more discerning this time. The only things in the core set I want is the armory and the kid heroes. I'm a little "meh" on the spell fx. I like the walls and the platform, but I could've done fine with just one hand and more ground based effects, like a fireball. I'm actually pretty happy though because instead of the core set, I can pick up the amazing ship. I'm eagerly awaiting the Brinewinds reveal, I might go in on that, depending on what's revealed. I also saw some carts teased. I'd be in on those as well.

  4. So far I'm not in for too much because I've got a glut of basic PCs, NPCs, and common monsters. Dragonfolk and and War Machines for sure. Maybe the Daimyo expansion because it would be nice to have more Asian inspired pieces. The core just doesn't have enough to pull me in to it. I like the zombie giant, the stag, and the Krampus looking thing, and I like the kid heroes and spell effects. I'm hoping they'll have parts of the core set separately purchasable like the last KS.
