Kickstarter Discussion Thread

Recommended Posts

One of the fine folks over at the Paizo forums noted that the latest installment of the Pathfinder Adventure Path, #66 The Dead Heart of Xin

 

 

 

has stats and an encounter with a clockwork dragon. And two art pieces as well!

 

He's CR16. Pretty tough character.

So since the kickstarter is over now and no one got the Razig flag, anyone know if they are still trying to sell it?

with less than 9 weeks till Reaper Con... I would guess you fine folks at REaper HQ are working feaverishly to get the space cleared out and are on track to have most of the KS sent out before Reaper Con needs the space. I can hardly wait.

Reaper update 85 was the 28/2. Any news on progress?

 

Sitting in Europe and looking forward to receiving my package. But it is quite at the moment. So quite... Looking forward to make mock battles with my miniatures and the game tiles from Dwarven Forge kickstarter.

thanks Rabble Rouser. I did look if there was a thread with update. I must have missed that one.

 

Nothing to do but wait and follow Dwarven Forge Kickstarter. I have a feeling it may become just as big a success as the Bones kickstarter.

Dwarven Forge is certainly off to a great start, but I can't see it having anywhere near the success of bones. Their customer base is a sub-set of Reapers, and there is no way they can match the variety bones did with stretch goals. Also, because of the prohibitive costs of shipping, they just cannot offer the fantastic free add-ons Reaper did. Still, with over 1100 backers and almost a quarter million in funds already raised, they have got to be happy. Heck, I'm sure they'd have been happy to see that on the last day of their project. I just think this will be a project that flattens out after the initial couple waves of backers. Kicktraq predicts 2.9 million, I think a more realistic end number will be 500k-1million.

I think you're going to be surprised Suden. For one, it has a lot of the appeal of legos for gamers, so $500 base is a lot more common. Two, the add-ons are probably going to drag in a lot of people who have been waiting for stock. Three, i know a lot of people want to get these for their board games, a pretty lucrative market right now, and a different subset than bones in that regard. I'm excited to see which of us is right. =D

For anyone who was interested, the clockwork dragon is painted and up in the preview gallery, Kaladrax is painted awaiting photography and I'm mostly through Nethyrmaul. I hope to be done with it by mid next week. I've attached the clockwork dragon for easy viewing.

      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.
