Kickstarter Discussion Thread

Recommended Posts

Anyways it looks like Reaperbryan did indeed answer the question - no swapping of anything except the metal Sophie.

 

I apologize for not exercising better judgment in my accusations, then. I wished only to be "to the point" as much as the other....

 

Also; thanks. ^.^ Looks like I'll just have to sell them and use the money to buy stuff I -do- want.

 

EDIT: I'll just as likely come back here and trade with other users.

 

@reaperbryan: The reality is, we DO have 100% customizability with the bones, in that we can trade/sell them once we have them in march/april. And, thanks for clearing that up again. I really appreciate it.

GuywithTheFace (and I do miss your previous avatar), I know many people aren't even offering trades until they get the minis in hand in March. I am one such person. I have a feeling you will find one way or another to get rid of the stuff you won't use, and get what you will. Buy/Sell/Trade/Pimp whatever. :;):

Hi all.

 

Newbie miniature painter wannabe here.

 

If you do your best on every painting project and follow through on every project until it's done, you're well on your way to being the best of the best <33

 

EDIT!!

Oh? Then perhaps I should change my avatar back. ;) and -maybe- also my signature.

 

EDIT: I'll be sure to check out the trade thread if I don't have a buyer by the time I get the bones.

I'm kind of hoping that will be reduced/removable so the figure is more 'playable'.)

 

(You'll note that Nethyrmaul's front claw is roughly the size of Deathsleet's whole head...)

I'd say that base makes the model be more playable.
  • The base lets the dragon be in the quadrupedal stance a dragon SHOULD be in without requiring a giant cavalry base.
  • Lets one use the mini in game systems with stringent base requirements. Trim some rocks and the dragon fits the required base. CD-ROM, 4" square, 120mmx94mm oval or whatever other size the game wants.
  • No slowing the game will cockamamie attempts to claim the dragon has cover. It doesn't.
  • Less bumping other models with it's wings since they are inches off the tabletop.

 

While not as pretty as your's, Here's a pic that shows a more direct size comparison.

My $0.02.

 

A huge Draco-liche already exists in another line.... Now that line is out of print, and therefore that Dracolich is now a bit pricey, ($30-$60, not as much as I thought it would be) and though it's nice to be able to have an in-print offering in that size class, I myself would perfer a Gargantuan or above sized undead dragon, since none that I know of exist.

I have another question:

 

Is there somewhere that delineates exactly what's being shipped out in September, vs what's going out in March? I know the Bones minis are in March, of course, but is everything else being shipped in September? (case, paints, Sophie, etc) Or are some of them being shipped out next year?

It has been posted many times in many places.

 

September = paint, & Sophie.

 

March = Bones & case

 

the RPM (Reaper post-Kickstarter Pledge Manager) may have an option to ship everything in March.

I'd say nethyrmaul's gargantuan, at least. Maybe not the colossal the original size comparisons were hinting at, but gargantuan for sure.

Hi, sorry if this has been asked before, but I couldn't make it through all 193 pages of posts!

 

I'm splitting a Vampire level with a friend so we can afford it. Will we be able to buy multiples of the extras? For example, say we both wan a Deathsleet, will I be able to increase my pledge by $20 to get two of them?

Maybe this information (edit: along with the information regarding only being able to exchange sophie for credit) should be added to the FAQs in the kickstarter, and the opening posts of this thread and the bones news/updates thread, for ease of access.

Yes, you can get two or more of any of the extras with your single vampire pledge. Just increase your pledge by the required amount ($20 in the case of two deathsleets) ^.^

      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!

      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!

      Here is a set of five zombies I painted up - first 2 are wizkids and I found I did not really like the sculpt, a sort of Elvis pirate looking zombie. Second three are a mix of a wizkid and two reaper zombies. Quick paint ups for the table - being fortune to have an in-house group to play with!
