Kickstarter Discussion Thread

Recommended Posts

I was curious about the proposed scale of Nethyrmaul, so I dropped the sketch into Photoshop along with some other largish dragons, resized so the little human was the same for all the images, then outlined the big guy in red so you can see the difference.

 

* jaw drops open *

 

Honeycomb's big, yeah yeah yeah!

So... then I got to wondering how big the thing is compared to its nearest competitor. So I found an image of a certain Colossal dragon standing next to a man-sized figure, and dropped it in for visual comparison purposes. D&D players who realize they can get the figure outlined in black for $25 through this kickstarter might be more inclined to see the value here... feel free to re-distribute this image as desired.... I grant permission... ;)

Hi all.

 

Newbie miniature painter wannabe here. I am excited by this project to the point that I am all in and will try my hand at miniature painting. Looking forward to tips and getting my hand on brushes! :)

 

I realise there is alot planned and going on but I would like to put foward the idea of expanding the sophia trade in option that is has been outlined for Reaper Kickstarter Manager. I for one would like to see other options for trade in. Personally I would rather keep Sophie and trade in miniatures that would never be used in my world. I am purely a fantasy RPGer who may in time more to try his hand at fantasy wargaming. There are four inclusions that I would like to see added to the swap in deal and after reading the forums here and over at Paizo quite a few others. The four in particular are: the chronoscope, IMEF marines, Nova and Vampire hunters miniatures.

 

When you look at the four I highlight, they are the 4 odd ducks in the pile.

 

Thanks for the opportunity to give feedback here. I look forward to the future when the good staff of Reaper post off my order and I can start using the paint! :)

No swapping of other minis, just Sophie, and only because she's the only metal offering.

 

This is a package deal, and if we start allowing all 7,000 backers 100% customizability, we might as well just tear up the Vampire package and post a per price on everything, buffet style.

EDIT: Bryan has already answered this part.

 

There is a trade thread here to work on getting rid of the stuff you don't want. There's already plenty of posts of people who don't want scifi, or don't want pathfinder, or whatever. You should have no problems offloading most of the figures you don't want for something else.

Welcome! Hopefully I get this written quickly enough. (Verdict? Nope, WAY too slow.)

 

While Reaper would love to be able to offer that kind of customizability, they looked at it and the logistics would be too convoluted and too expensive to make it feasible. However, several forum members have started a 'Trade your bones' thread, in which you should be able to get rid of the ones you don't want and pick up ones you do.

 

Posting this now, then going back to edit to address the rest! (Verdict here? There's not anything else to post about. 0 for 2!)

Fair call. I can appreciate the logistics of it all. Maybe instead of 100% swap factor allow a just a few.

 

All said and done, the package deal is most generous. I for one will not be pulling out. :)

 

Congratulation on an awesome kickstarter.

In theory, that sounds manageable. In practice, how many people would scream about the stuff they wanted not being eligible? It's already happening with Sophie.

 

Incidentally, offering the option to ditch Sophie is actually easy for Reaper; she would not have shipped with the Bones package anyway, so in many cases, they get to drop a September shipment for that supporter entirely. And for the Bones shipment, it would be adding stuff to it, not taking away from it.

 

Everything else? Not so much.

 

I still contend that the nicest thing to do with your unwanted Bones is to give them to a friend who likes them as a present. They will think you are awesome for doing so (and you would be!) and you might just turn them on to Reaper for the next time they roll one of these bad boys around. :;):

      Hello Reaper friends!  You might remember I did a whole tribe of Hill Giants on a display board, with hex bases?
       
      This is my follow up to that, this time: Stone Giants.
       
      Errrm, it all got a bit out of hand, and I'd LOVE some input from you all, please
       
      This is where I'm at after a week and I'm a bit stuck tbh.




       
      I think I need to decide more about what the "finish" will look like before I go a lot further. Once I cover that foam with more than paint it's going to be harder to make changes. I'm thinking of sort of "cladding" it in pieces of slate, with sculpted  bits / groundwork in the gaps?
       
      I'd also love to hear suggestions for other miniatures and features to add to the scene to break up those big open rocky spaces. Current extra bits and bobs are just there for a sense of scale and how extra minis might "interrupt" or "enhance" the scene.
       
      Some next steps though:
      - cork around the hexes on the platforms for the bases to fit into
      - some sort of "door frame"
      - "box in" the sides (which are cut out of a continuing mountainside, in my head at least)
       
      Please, rain your ideas and encouragements upon me!

      Help! I'm hating this paintjob.
       
      I grabbed this demilich thinking it'd be a fun and easy paintjob. But everything I do makes me hate it more.
       


       
      I was trying to go for a green flame look, so yellow on the inside, and gradually darker green highlights on the outside. These were drybrushed and then cleaned up by hand. I think this is where the problem started because it's not reading as fire. It just looks like a blobby mess?
       
      Should I just scrap it and start over with more of an ethereal glow that's darker in the middle and lighter on the edges?
       
      I also am not happy with the base. I've never painted a 2D base before, I've always added some kind of texturing material. And although I'm reasonably satisfied with how the base looks on the summoning circle behind the demilich, it looks so bad on the demilich base. And I think my green glow isn't helping. 
       
      And finally the Bones. I imagined that if there was a green light behind the Bones then they'd be tinted green and darker on the outside. Again .. this just doesn't look right.
       
      I'm normally fairly confident in my painting abilities, but I think I've landed in unfamiliar territory and I'm just not sure how to salvage or proceed. What can I do?

      NOTE: You can choose one demo monster ( skull or abberattion) I chose a batwinged skull and added horns to try it.

      This is my filthy first.
       
      I finally gave in and purchased one of the Bones figures. It is the otyugh-ish filth beast by Bob Ridolfi.
       

      It is a big change from the metal minis I usually purchase. The material is way bendy, almost like a green Gumby toy.


      The coolest thing is the way it is baka yoke, and all the pieces are "keyed" to a hole. I would have to try really hard to mess up the assembly on this one!

    • By MoonglowMinis
      First time showing something off on the forums! Normally only post to my instagram @MoonglowMinis
       
      Had a blast painting this one up! Had to tap into my painterly side to get the glow effect I wanted and to transition the plating down to the end of the tail where there was no sculpted detail. 
       
      Hope you all like it!
