That is correct. Look at those add ons, they say free to all vampire and undertaker pledges.

 

Edit: actually, vampire doesn't explicitly state the add-ons either, but they are included.

That's what I thought. Thanks. I'm kinda managing a small thread about this kickstarter over on Giant in the Playground and just wanted to make sure I'm not giving out bad info.

Someone pointed this out to me earlier, and I just wanted to confirm:

 

The Fighters, Undead Horde, BBEG, Elves, Dwarves, and the Klocke Classics are going to be included in an Undertaker level pledge, right? Because the pledge text still only reads "4 each of 59 different Bones models."

Yes, the undertaker Level receives all of the no-charge stretch goals too.

 

All of the stretch goal graphic tell you who qualifies for them and at what quantities.

The Pledge level tells you what it received when the project began. The Stretch goals specify which levels are eligible for each reward. Undertaker & Vampire are eligible to receive 100% of all rewards, with details for how much of each posted on tthe graphic. The other levels are currently eligible for the paint, and soon theorcpocalypse, with the potential for others later on.

 

If you have a doubt as to whether a level qualifies for a goal, the goal itself will tell you. However, I have added text to undertaker level descriptor that indicates it will be eligible for stretch goals as detailed in the specific goal.

Hi there -- here's my second question! Thanks for the reply to the first.

 

Will the Kickstarter paint set options include free shipping to Canada?

 

Again, apologies if this has been answered, but I could find this info anywhere.

 

Cheers,

Carnacki

Under the paint option it says to add the highest shipping option for whatever pledge level you are in for. If it is a tier that says free shipping to US and Canada, it's free.

 

In fact it looks like all tiers available to Canada ship free, so the add-ons do too.

Nice, subtle reference to the Portal game "Still Alive" song there in the latest update...

I can't claim credit, my husband and son pointed it out to me.

 

Btw, we have pledged, and we are looking forward to lots of nice bones in our mail in March ::D:

 

Going back to following the pledge progress ( i am NOT addicted, no not at all...)

It is a pre-order for a product.

 

If your dad buys you minis already he should like this, $31 for 20 minis is really cheap. (As a dad I'm buying them to share with my kids who will be very excited to be able to paint 10 orcs each!)

It's funny you say this, b/c as a dad I'm going to be bumping up my order a significant amount for a similar reason. My son is only 2 years old, but he loves to play with my old dnd miniatures; I don't let him handle my painted miniatures. He's to the point now where he wants toys to do battle with one another, and this pre-order is a fantastic way to get him some toys that will be durable enough to withstand his rough play.

 

I'm about 90% certain the wife will buy this.

 

My 3 year old has been playing with my PPM/DDM for quite some time. He lost my purple worm though. :angry:

Ouch, that stinks. Thankfully it was just an uncommon so you should be able to pick one up. I know it's a huge vs. the Reaper one which is large sized but my players never really care about scale beyond large size anyhow. If I tell them something is ginormous, they take it as such.

 

Let me check and see if I have an extra lying around, I'll mail it to ya.

Hoffa's grave? I guess that path does look like an I-94 off ramp........

 

Here's something I can't figure out. My FLGS is looking at the Undertaker level. The description says if has 4 each of "59 different Bones Models". If you count up the existing bones models and add the 30 new ones, it doesn't add up to 59. 30 plus the potential add ons doesn't add up either. It's a great deal for the store however it stacks up, but it just bugs me trying to figure out what the 59 will be.

I had the same issue.

 

30, plus the original 12... The 4 new ones in preview are in the 30... I couldn't make it work either. However, I could swear when this first started I saw the list somewhere but damned if I can find it now...

      It's the perfect time of year to show off this little collection of spooky minis!
       

       
      Giant Bats 44040

       
      These little guys are adorable.  They're pretty simple, and it's hard to pick out details in their faces, but I think they're fantastic little minis.  Though their size clearly makes them giant bats, I can definitely see myself using them as "normal-sized" bats for Wildshape or Familiar purposes.  I specifically used the Little Brown Bat as my coloration reference.
      More Bat Photos Below:
       
      Harrowgate Shrine 77723
      Next up is a bit of scatter terrain.  This is one of the two models in the Harrowgate Shrines set.

      What could it be?  An ancient omen?  The gravestone for a horrific creature?  Or perhaps the beast itself is encased in stone!
      It's not the most exciting of models, but I thought it fit nicely with this little set.  I probably should have based it, but I like basing scatter pieces on flat bases and didn't have one the right size for this.  Might base it in the future.
      More Shrine Photos Below:
       
      Werebat 77448
      And rounding out this set we have the big baddie: the werebat!

      I really like how dynamic this guy is.  Really get the sense he's about to lunge at you, or take off to the skies.  I painted him up like the giant bats.  Don't love the paintjob, but it works.  I really like how his base turned out though.  The model comes on a roughly 1" circular base, but he's pretty top heavy.  I didn't want to give him a 2" base, but I'm really starting to enjoy basing these oversized models on 40mm rounds.  Especially with that tapering rim, they fit nicely without looking out-of-scale compared to other "medium" sized creatures.
      More Werebat Photos Below:
       
      So what's the story?  What would you use these minis for?

      Who let the dogs out (of hell)?

      Hi everyone.  Back again with some infernal pooches.
       

       
      These are the Hell hounds from the Bones 4 Fan Favorites Expansion.  They were fun and challenging.  All those glowing lava details were a pain.  I think I managed to get them to turn out alright though.  Also had fun with the lava bases.
       
      More Photos of the Hell Hounds beneath the spoiler:
       
      In all, I like these guys.  Their bases were a lot of fun and really pop from a lot of my other minis.  I'll be posting more of my infernal collection soon, but figured these were a great place to start.
       
      Which Hound turned out best?
    • By MoonglowMinis
      Hi everyone.  Got a couple of Cool Cats to show off today.
       

       
      I went back and forth for a long time on whether or not a wanted a group of matching lions, or if I wanted variety.  As a DM, I feel these would be used most often as Druidic wildshapes, familiars, or summons.  I also couldn't deny that i wanted to try some different techniques on each, so I decided to go with a Lion, a Tiger, and a Black Panther.
       
      Tiger (Reaper Bones Lion 77341)
       

       
      First up was the Tiger.  She was actually the Lioness from the Reaper Bones Lions set (77341).  Her sculpt looked like it could read as a tiger, and that was my major inspiration for wanting to paint each of them differently.  I used a lot of references images on her and the subsequent cats as well.  Really wanted to get the coloration right.  I'm happy I did, because my instinct was to use more orange tones, but in actuality, tigers have more of a warm brown color.  I used red-hair colors to bring out the highlights.  The stripes weren't as difficult as I was expecting.  I just used my reference photos as a guide and did my best.  I do worry that people will misinterpret the nose stripes as poorly-drawn whiskers though.  She also looks a little dopy head-on but I promise that that's the sculpt.

      Lion (Reaper Bones Lions 77341)

       
      Next up is the other half of the Lion set.  This guy was always destined to be a lion.  Once again, I'm really glad I used reference images.  Its funny how many animals we envision incorrectly.  I learned this lesson well after painting up the Bones 4 pig way too pink, even though I knew it shouldn't be that color.  I'm really pleased with my coloration on the mane.  The only dry brushing on this guy is the rock base.  Time consuming but worth the result.  I think the muscle highlights look pretty natural.

      Black Panther (Legend of Drizzt Board Game - Guenhwyvar)

       
      And finally we have the Black Panther.
       
      Fun Fact:
      Did you know that there is no such animal as a Black Panther?  It is just a nickname for melanistic variants of any Panthera species, specifically Leopards and Jaguars.
       
      This model is from The Legend of Drizzt Board Game by Wizards of the Coast.  I have not read a single Drizzt Do'Urden book, but I believe the black panther, Guenhwyvar, is the ranger's companion animal.  Anyways, that was influence enough to paint her up in that style.  I believe I used mostly Black Jaguars as inspiration, though the markings became less important than getting the highlight colors right.  I ended up using Reaper's Dark Elf Skin colors to highlight the black, which is amusing considering Drizzt's race.  I added some mottled spotting afterwards, trying to imply the pattern more than paint each individual spot.  I think I managed to imply muscle, fur, and spots without losing the dark shade of black I wanted.  Pretty happy, especially since this sculpt was my least favorite of the bunch.

      QUESTION TIME
      Which of the three is your favorite?
       
      What animals do you use most often in your games?
       
      Do you have a favorite animal you like to see painted in miniatures?
    • By MoonglowMinis
      How's it going everyone?  Got a handful of baddies to show off today.  Painted these a few months ago and still pretty proud of them.  They're a mix of the Brigands from the Bones 4 Core, and the Bandits from Bones 3: Stoneskull Expansion.

      Painted them up to match.  They'll work great as bandits, thugs, mercenaries, or militia men.  Very versatile figures.  They were also a great opportunity for me to practice my face-work.
       
      Brigands (3) 77707

      I'm assuming the upcoming bones "Brigands" are in fact these three.  Lovely little models.  I'm a big fan of the slightly chunkier bones models that have been coming out lately.  They tend to have larger surface areas and better-defined edges.  They also tend to have less clutter.  This makes for an easier, cleaner paint job in my opinion.
      More Photos below the Spoiler:
       
      Bandits 77507,77508,77509,77510

      These four are from the Bones 3 Stoneskull Expansion.  I've had them sitting around for awhile, but decided to paint them up with the Brigands.  They have similar enough designs to fit together.  In general, I like their design less, but once I painted them up that didn't matter.  Perfectly serviceable mooks!
      More Photos beneath the Spoiler:
       
      Who's your favorite of the bunch?  I'm partial to the Executioner myself, with the Bandit Bully taking a close second.
    • By Javedian
      I have done about 15 minis over the past year (starting with the Learn to Paint kit), after taking a 30+ year break from painting lead with Testors enamel. Each one I try to learn or improve one technique. This one I focused on pose & basing (took a little surgery to get rid of the pudding base and shape all the claws). The 'rock' is a chunk of bark. Any comments, critiques, questions or suggestions are welcome. Between this forum and YouTube, I am amazed on the knowledge and information available, in an overall great community. Getting ready for Bones V delivery!
