  1. Back in the day, Games Workshop made some great Ninja. I also remember a Ral Partha boxed set of Ninja. More recently, Paizo had a ninja encounter pack with like 3 ninja, metal, in it. They were fun and quick paint jobs.
  2. I'm interested in the paint but with the Bones 6 KS going on right now it's not ideal timing.
  3. Could be a way to try out new lines. I felt cheated when I saw the Barbarian backer figure wasn't the first of a series of 3-Stage Characters but doing a 3-Stage Character KS could show if there's any interest in that. Doing something similar for an Encounters series ditto.
  4. The minotaurs were from a KS years ago. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/zealotminiatures/twisting-catacombs-the-minotaur-horde
  5. Those minotaurs look a LOT like the ones from Zealot miniatures.
  6. Are you talking about the Lychee option to resize supports automatically? Unless that's greatly changed, it's garbage. It puts supports through the model and then you have to spend time rearranging them.
  7. Man I wish Artisian Guild did 28mm instead of their 35mm scale. Very tempting.
  8. It took months for the ogres from one of the KS to get a restock. This is one of the HUGE problems with having overseas manufacturing. The boat/container/etc... probably has to hit a certain threshold before it makes sense to make an order. You're not going to want to order 1 ogre. I can't imagine the havok that plays with the demand system though. At my old gig we'd have to manually go in and check those anomaly's out to figure out if something wasn't selling or if it'd just been out of stock for a long time and to be prepared for it to be a huge seller and may need more picking face space when it was back in.
  9. I just got in Bard Sung the other day. Prior to that the expansions for the Conan boardgame. Prior to that Warcry's new edition. Prior to that Dominion. etc... etc... etc... This doesn't count the ones I'm currently waiting on. I would love to back it but I'd need to buy a house first for all the board game KS I buy just for the minis.
  10. I did say ambitious but not impossible. Bones VI 1 mill and change right now. 10 days to go. Let's say we get a mill in the last five days. That still puts it at 2 mill. Bones V 3.3 mil Bones IV 3 mil and change Bones III 2.7 mil Bones II 3.1 mil Bones I 3.4 mil Things can always turn around. There may be some more encounters or they mad add somethings to the core or they may break out things from the core. On FB there's been a daily breakdown. It's not looking good by the numbers. But things can always turn around.
  11. The stretch goals are... ambitious. Almost double what the campaign currently has. I'd already pledge for several things that weren't unlocked, hellborn heroes, the dragon, and something else so no additional funds will be elicited from me this round. Know when about the 30th anniversary dragon is weird because it wasn't' clear to me if THIS year 2022 is the 30th anniversary and it's going to be available in the stores of if they made it for the 30th and you can order it now and in 2 years you'll get it for the 32nd anniversary...
  12. Over on ye old FB, one of the sculptors mentioned offhand that he preferred physical spun/cast etc... miniatures to 3d printing because 3d printed figures will become more brittle over time and threw out a 10 year mark as the durability stage. Anyone have any data/information on that? Any ideas on how the various tenacious/etc... resins increase/decrease that? It's not something I see talking about.
  13. Looking at the new April releases, the front page has the Nobelwoman painted. Getting to the individual model, no paint job. Searching and seeing both the Bones and the Metal models, no paint job. ? Is there an easy way to find the painted models? I find them very useful for inspiration and color selection.
  14. and the pdf came in. Not sure if that's because of this campaign or others.
  15. This guy is the perfect example of that. Is that a human wizard? No, he's listed as a half-elf monk. So... who buys it right? Well, me because I always need hooded characters but yeah, buyers are strange.
  16. I'd just like to hammer on this point. Retail pricing. The Bones figures when they first came out were a revolution in pricing. One of the rogues from the recent freebie of the month is $5.99 if you order him. He's more expensive than some of the metal figures which could just be an indicator that Reaper needs to update it's entire catalog's prices. I can't imagine in 2 years things are going to get cheaper. Even if covid goes away, even if Russia resumes being a 'partner' or whatever you want to call it in world markets, even if the logistics issues are completely resolved. Things long term only go in one direction.
  17. Like the idea of a three stage unlock. In most cases Reaper will unlock if we're close so my assumption is we're going to get them all. Dislike that we're not getting more 3-stage characters. Mind you I'm old and the Ral Partha 3-stage bits were great for the various multi-class combos that were standard in the 1st and 2nd ed days. I hope we start seeing some more pieces like more dragons and whatever the 'encounters' are going to be.
  18. A little disappointed they dropped the whole 'Encounters' naming convention. I can't be the only one who remembers the old Grenadier 'Encounter At XXX" with a few terrain pieces, heroes, and villains? They even had gaming stats. With Reaper doing things like the Green Griffin PDF, they could add actual 'Encounters', PDF and game stats with maps. And no three stage characters? If true, that's another sigh and missed opportunity to hit that old nostalgia spot.
  19. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/blacklistgames/street-masters-aftershock/posts/3460524 Hmmmm... not the same game but....
  20. Dependong on how expensive the set is, you might be better off buying multiple in the KS and selling the excess. Some of those price bumps have been HUGE.
  21. Got mine but will have to wait until the weekend to inventory it.
  22. This one might have some conflicts with Bones sucking all the air out of the room.
