  1. I'm not sure this is the right thread for it, but it was mentioned some time ago that there likely won't be Chronoscope expansions in future Bones kickstarters, because they're always the worst sellers by a large margin. I think the issue is that they do not feel like a cohesive whole. Look at the one in Bones V: there's one part that's a bunch of pulp/steampunk characters, another part that's redneck zombie horror, and a third that's post-apocalypse scavengers/mutants/robots (plus Dejah Thoris). I might have been interested in one of those thirds, but when 2/3 of the expansion fee
  2. Sure, but I think the premium for configurability is a bit too high. For example, a 100-unit Stackarack kit costs £125, which is about $173. If I instead were to get, for example, Monument Hobbies' MDF rack holding 64 Reaper-size bottles, that costs $26. So for the cost of a Stackarack set that holds 100 paints, I can get 6 Monument racks that each hold 64 (or 36 if using the GW-size one). Customizability is certainly worth something, but I'm not sure it's worth 2-4 times the price. And Monument is on the higher end (likely because they're really solidly built and well-balanced, an
  3. As someone who is nowadays mostly playing Pathfinder 2, I'd love to see some of the Pathfinder-specific monsters (and character options) get some minis. Some are quite visually distinctive, like the alchemy golem we fought the other day (which had a bunch of syringes, glass chambers, and so on). I don't know if the lead times match, but it would be even cooler if Reaper and Paizo could coordinate about what sort of monsters would be featured in APs a year or two out and include some in Bones. I'll join in with whoever said they wanted two-inch dragons. Something along the lines of
  4. Yeah, it would have been nice if they told us as soon as they knew the EU hub wasn't happening. It's probably not going to hurt me much as I've been socking money away for VAT while adding things to the PM, and adding a few percentile points on top of that will be mostly fine, but some people have stretched themselves thinner than I have.
  5. Looking at that freight post, well, someone's gotta say it... And what do you get?
  6. As someone who's mostly playing Pathfinder these days: 1. Goblins. Goblins are an official PC ancestry in Pathfinder these days, so Pathfinder-style goblins in a variety of styles matching different classes. 2. Barghest, in Medium and Large 3. Boars 4. Brain collector 5. Various drakes. 6. Alchemical golem 7. PF-style hobgoblins 8. Various linnorms. 9. Various proteans 10. Various psychopomps 11. Redcap 12. Shining child 13. Various flavor of xulgaths/troglodytes (in particular, check out the variants in the Extinction Cur
  7. I don't know if Army Painter has changed their ingredients or something, but when I tried priming bones with it earlier this year they got very tacky. It took a few days for the tackiness to reveal itself, though. Another thing I've noted is that if I use Citadel's Wraithbone primer on Bones Black, it adheres fine but it doesn't seem to give a primed surface. If I try painting on it, it's just as hydrophobic as the Bones Black material itself (or close enough to not matter). This is unfortunate if you try to paint them using contrast paints. It would be really awesome i
  8. I got a set with a recent order, and while they seem to be perfectly cromulent dice, I was slightly disappointed that they didn't come in differentiated colors like on the Kickstarter picture. If they had had differentiated colors, and those colors had been consistent from set to set, I would have bought like ten sets. It would have been great for quickly finding a bunch of appropriate dice for various spells and other effects in D&D and variants. Hunting through your various dice sets to find 8d8 for a Cone of Cold can take a while, and the next round you need 5d12 because someone else is
