    So, from what I understand, Reaper as at least to some extent moving to the greyish color, slightly more rigid bones material (in response to the new WizKids minis?). Do we have any sense on if / how many of the Bones in this Kickstarter will be the new materiel / formula?

    On one of the unboxing I saw (may have been wasd20's?) on youtube, someone from Reaper commented that it wasn't a new formula per se, just the color for their chronoscope line in bones. Not sure how true that is, but it does show better detail then the white bones. Time will tell how many more get this new look.


    okay just found it, so I edited this post:

    yes it was wasd20's video, the comment was from Matt Clark:


    The gray is for our Bones Chronoscope line which is our modern/sci-fi line. We are also doing our polystyrene in the darker gray. It's the same material with color added.

    Yeah, Bones I had more (I think).

    And I haven't done my unboxing yet of the core set I scored off Ebay (I was going through a lot of crap in 2015, well still am, so I wasn't able to get on KSIII, hopefully IV I will), but if my count is right on my excel sheet I did before getting the kit, the actual mini's count is only 149, not over 150 like the box says (sorry, I don't count weapons and shields as mini's, but if they are using that as the count, then yes over 150 is right). Still an awesome deal for some really great mini's:)

    But it was an extremely good offer, even better than Bones II and III ... more miniatures I think.

    Really? when I looked back at kickstarter, it looked like KSI had more? or did you mean KS1 had more:)

  4. So, let me see if I am getting this right? If the pledge manager works in KS4 as it did in KS3, if I just pledge a $1 (or more) and initially just get a few of the add ons, after the KS is done, until they close the pledge manager (and hopefully give us fair warning), I can still pledge and get say the core set and any other add ons? Is that right? Man if I can pledge a little here and there till the manager closes, that would be awesome.

    WOO HOO!!!


    Super excited to see the date released! Even better, August 1st is not that far away!

    I would have preferred more in the middle of the month to get funds together, so I am either going to miss out (again) or ill have to go for the small add ons only (if thats possible).

    Motivation took a nose dive. Not just for miniature stuff though. We'll see what all I get done.


    Yup that's basically what has happened this month here too:( Hopefully I'll at least get my Bones III core set unboxing video done (I got it off Ebay, unfortunately missed it because of RL things in 2015) and priming my 6 mini's ready to go.

  7. This was what I was wondering as well, so since its a harder (read less forgiving) plastic, is it akin to lead (in this case bones) and rallidium pewter (wizkids?) Because I sweated bullets every time I did a LITTLE bending on a rallidium mini in fear of snapping it:(

    There were fewer available, so they sold through faster.


    There will be no restock of the item.  


    All of the contents will be releasing individually over time.

    Hopefully the pack camel will be released relatively soon:) Only one I really want right now:)

  9. So I have been watching everyone's unboxing videos of their Kickstarter 3 stuff (i'll prolly do one of my core set when it comes in, off Ebay unfortunately but still super excited), and I have heard the hot irons (number 156 in the torture chamber series) twice now being called a Root Beer Float. I found this extremely amusing:)

    Yall really seem to be overthinking this.


    We use water after running it through a coffee maker.  It isn't boiling, just coffee level of hot. (No, not made into coffee, just heated water)

    When more water is needed, we'll heat water in large dish in microwave and put in a bowl on counter,


    We never put ours in a pot on stove or pan in oven.  



    I think we are all "Closet" Engineers, because we always seem to be overthinking things:) Or maybe just too much "tool time" :)

  11. well I basically have no feeling in my fingers, because I just stick the offending part in the water for about 15-130 seconds, pull em out and shape and immediately plunge in ice water:) Of course I don't get the water scolding hot, just enough to allow shaping:)

    I've got all three Bones sets in my hobby room. And a ton of Dark Sword. And the remnants of my GW stuff after they annoyed me enough to get out of their games. In other words, I'll be painting until the heat death of the universe. :)

    Oh yah, on top of the bones I have collected AND the core set, I also have a whole bunch of old ral partha/grenadier/etc box sets and loose metal miniatures still to go, including a 50 count (or more) parts cabinet (you know, the ones you use for screws and stuff in a workshop) FULL of miniatures:( My kids may be stuck selling all that when I die:( Oh, and did I mention all my car/sci-fi/military etc model kits:(

    I'm not a huge fan of the Sir Forescale model but still feel sad that I don't have one. It seems like a necessity around here. That said it's a nice take on him.

    I got mine originally because I wanted a bunch of inexpensive mini's to get back into the game as it where, I have a decent source off Ebay and Garrick was real cheap:) I have him all based and ready to prime, but I just scored a Core set Bones III set, so now I have a TON of mini's to get back into the game:)

  14. Speaking of China, I noticed on the Miniatures that I got from Kickstarter III (not the whole core set, just the savage worlds, wizard of Oz and chill out groups. I do have a core set on its way through:) ) that they are stamped MADE IN CHINA, is that just because its the initial kickstarter, and once regular production starts, they'll be produced in the US?

    That's cool and something new.  Those listings weren't there when the questions were asked.

    Maybe they added them because of the questions:) I know a lot of the mini's are not in any kind of order yet (as far as I can tell anyway) when you try and scroll through them, so I am constantly finding myself going back to the main page.

    I just went back and looked at a few of the other box sets and apparently they did them to all of them (graveyard,mythos, and even Core set!) That is cool, will help immensely to try and figure out what is in the core set!


    Intersting, the core set shows that the corsairs and space mouslings are in the set, thats odd. I thought they were options. Were they added to the core set? Havent seen anyone unbox them in any youtube videos, weird.
