Kickstarter Discussion Thread

Recommended Posts

One possible way to get around production blockups would be to ship/produce rewards separately. 'Adventurers level rewards' Ship in October, 'Monster level' addons in December, 'Demigods and Dragons' ship in February. All International pledges ship in March by Unicorn Express. This does increase shipping costs, however.

 

... way too little sleep last night. I'm getting silly.

Shipping is easily the hardest expense to predict, because not all boxes will weigh the same due to variances in rewards selected. As such, anything that makes predicting that cost harder is very bad, from a planning perspective.

I just noticed on the Australian Sophie thread, apparently the Bones pledges will be shipped out in March in the order people filled out the pledge manager.

 

As for Martin's Cthulhu, wasn't there a sort of glowy cold yellow in one of the Kickstarter paint sets of new colors? i bet that, contrasted with a somewhat darker green eye socket, could produce a glowing effect like that.

Did anyone else find themselves whimpering with their fingers in their mouth while watching that video?

 

 

It's not just that there's sooo many minis to paint, or that the video doesnt include all the extras and duplicates I'm getting, or that there may well be another Bones kickstarter coming at some point.

 

 

It's the fact that I've STILL been buying minis even though I know what's coming.

Have there been any updates on when the minis will start shipping? I'm REALLY looking forward to mine!

Materials for shipments are stacking up inside the warehouse here - Shipments of cases, foam, paint supplies, boxes for shipping etc. We will begin shipping in just a few short weeks, once we have everything in. We do not want to begin shipping and have to stop while we wait for other product to get here. More specifically, we do not want anybody to have to wait while others have their boxes.

      This week I finished "Arakus Landarzad, Wizard" from the "Grey Beards" set in the Bones 4 Core box. I tried a couple experiments with this guy; one was using purple for the shadows on the yellow robes, and the other was using Citadel Contrast Paint to do the gem on the staff.  To read more about it see: http://allbonesabout.blogspot.com/2021/01/arakus-landarzad-wizard-bones-4-figure.html

      I backed the Bones 5 kickstarter and was informed that my wave (8) will be shipped out sometime in April. Do I have an option when it comes to how it will be shipped to me?
      I am having difficulty with mail at the moment. My monthly Reaper mini order was stolen last November and I have been wary about receiving packages at my address since. If the kickstarter package can be delivered via UPS, I can have it held at a contact point. If not, I'll have to put in a Hold Mail request to my local USPS, get a PO box or hope that I'm home when the package arrives. I live in an apartment building with no security and no one I can trust to leave my packages with. I have considered getting my mail delivered to my workplace, but would rather not get them involved. 

      Anyone else have any problems receiving their mail and what kind of solutions can you offer.

      Some basic table-top paints here,  The owlbear paint is (more or less) a straight up copy of the Reaper website example but i think the base is interesting.  It starts off basically as a rock/gravel pile, and I thought it was rather boring so i turned it into the Owl Bear's cave floor covered in feces about an arms length deep. Practiced some sculpting on it. With P3 putty The big rocks were turned into Ogre skulls, a horse skull, and a face-down skeleton of some sad creature, all simmering in poo :)

       
      The Ankheg, it's always a balance of painting something like for max visual appeal or realism, went with the latter since something that just burst out of the ground would be pretty dirty, at least on the side it's digging with. This is my own work, did not copy anything so in that regard I'm pretty happy with it.

       
      For the back, went with a Game Color Dragon Green mixed with Filigree Silver, highlighted with a mix of bright yellow, Army painter Hemp rope, and a touch silver.

      The Owl Bear fur is  Black Base + Citadel Rhinox Hide ,Game-color Woodland Brown and Dessert Tan layered in. Wings are Stormy gray lightening out Rainy gray  on tips. For some reason this model was really east to paint ,  it never fought back like some of them do, (probably because i coped a picture ;)

      My Secret Sophie arrived at its destination i can share with everyone.  My recipient wanted something cute.  I thought it would be cute to have a man feeding his pet.  Just because his pet happens to be a rust weevil should not be held against him. 
       
      I saw the barbarian and it looked like he was throwing the swords rather than. Actually using them to hit anything.  I also had a spare rust weevil and the whole thing just came together.
       
      Roger got the old swords out of the box from his adventuring days.  It had been a while since he'd been out to the dungeons but at the rate George was going through weapons, he was either going to need to buy a new crate or go delving.  Maybe this time he'd just buy a box of old weapons, let the younger kids go fight the baddies.  These two look okay.  He grabs the weapons and heads out to the field.  When he reached the edge of the field he looks out over the fine red and tan soil and dust.  HEY GEORGE!  He yells out over the field.  In moments George shows up jumping and chittering.  "Hey George" he says again, "its dinnertime!  FETCH!"

      Needed a bunch of ghoul types so grabbed a bunch or bones ghasts - and added in one of the bones IV ghouls. Not sure how I feel about the ghasts, I turned out kind of not liking them and regretting the purpleish color. An relearning I should never paint groups larger than 3 - I don't have the attention span....
       
      The grey themed bones iv ghoul made me smile though -
       
      quick paints for a graveyard scene. Tried adding some grey mud to the brown.
