Kickstarter Discussion Thread

I'm curious, do the Bones plastics paint any easier than metal?


There are a couple of threads around on the forum (some with links to external sites as well) with reviews of painting the Bones figures. Almost universally, people have loved how they take paint, particularly for the reason Mike just mentioned - no primering necessary.


I'd encourage you to search for those threads if you want to read more, rather than get it from me 2nd hand. ::):

I have a question about the Sophie collection. It says all the previous ReaperCon Sophies are in the set, but I did not see the 2009 Sophie (01509) in the picture. Is it included?

That was an error when we shot the picture and because of our mistake it will include both!

I've painted Bones models with Reaper paint and GW paint straight to plastic with no real problems.


Basically any acrylic paint will work fine IMO, but Reaper are only obliged to test and promote their paints and most regulars here use Reaper paint primarily.


(I have shots of my Kobolds in the Show Off forum area here where all the browns are GW paint, on my blog is the Ogre Chieften where the only Reaper paint is Ancient Bronze)

      Coral Golem for my local paint club entry.
      I wanted to do something different, It seems the norm to paint everything in bright colors do I wanted to simulate all the coral being dead.

      I'm just gonna let them sell it:
      This Kickstarter campaign is intended to expand the Going Native line of models. We have a lot of new models sculpted and ready to be cast, along with scores of newly designed models that are ready to head off to the sculptors. We are doing a lot of new things with this campaign than we have done with earlier campaigns. So lets get started -
      Rise of the City States
      In the Americas, as in Europe, powerful states would rise out of small chiefdoms or towns. These states were mighty cities with formidable militaries often lead by savvy and charismatic kings, queens or princes.  While we will stretch beyond this from time to time, the City States will be the main theme of this campaign.
      Physical Products
      Unlike Kickstarter campaigns, all of my models and kit Physical products and not printable files. The vast majority of my models have be hand sculpted and classically cast. This campaign is very much a celebration of craftsmanship. Man sized models are planned to be spun cast in metal. The larger than man sized models will be cast in resin.
      It's shiny. There's a guy riding a giant starfish. How can you go wrong with that? >.>
