Kickstarter Discussion Thread

Recommended Posts

Between my kids an I we are now up to $105 in addons to my Vampire level. This is getting spendy. I'm both dreading and highly anticipating what will be unveiled next.

My Ebay auctions for the 40k stuff I'm selling end today, so once I get that money in I'll be making my pledge.

 

My wife has been very understanding of my miniature habit, and once she realized I could make money at it she's been down right encouraging! I've been talking to her about this Kickstarter a lot- last night even went into detail on how some of the stretch goals are auto-added, etc.

 

Back when we were dating she surprised me at Christmas by getting me one of the LoTR miniature sets. This was very surprising because it meant that a beautiful woman went into a gaming store of her own free will to purchase something. Heck, she even went so far as to talk the owner out of one of the promotional posters that they had for the LoTR minis- and got it at no charge!

 

I'm really hoping that the square tombstone is some sort of miniatures case- that would be excellent. SInce I'm planning on using all of my new Bones miniatures for my D&D games, I'll need some way to get them to the table (since I'm lucky and we're playing at someone else's house for a change).

 

If anyone's a 40k player and wants me to put in a higher pledge to Kickstarter, then feel free to bid on an auction :)

@Buglips- some of the Dark Sword minis do require a little bit of green stuff work, but not all of them. There are a few reviews of DS minis over at WAMP, so if you're even remotely interested I'd suggest reading a review or two. As one of the reviewers I can tell you that most of the figures only needed a tiny amount of GS work if you want to be a perfectionist. I can't recall any off the top of my head where it was absolutely required for assembly or to fix a problem.

Question - I want to get all the "options" available to the kick starter backers however.

 

If reaper could give a break down of all the current options via Google Docs or something of the sort...

 

Pretty Minis are distracting!

 

BTW Upped my pledge to 155.00 USD. ::D:

Then, what was the first winged tombstone? Large, unique miniatures are awesome. Before I could never imagine spending $60 on a single large mini that would be one fight in a campaign but right now, at $10 with the kickstarter its like the bargain bin...

 

Why not? When you have a model this awesome: http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/rauthuros/sku-down/14417

 

Mind you I play Warlord but when I pull him out for Warhammer Fantasy Battles people oohh and ahh at how awesome he is because no Evil Empire demon looks as awesome as he does. Even though I own him I may just get him in Bones.

There's new speculation on the KS comments that Rautheros will be a freebie!

 

 

 

Granted, I'm one of the ones that is doing the speculating... :devil:

Actually, that's the kind of speculation that I don't like. It doesn't make sense. He will require a mold by himself and none of the other large monsters have been free they are all options. I'm worried that people will start to expect him to be free because of speculation and then will be up in arms when/if he's not. I guess in the end we will see.

I know, and I debated with myself about going down that road. But I'm in a devilish mood, and I need my Reaper Kickstarter Reveal fix for the day (or next couple hours...)...

 

EDIT: I just noticed I didn't even include the :devil: in the speculation post, as was my intent....

I suspect that if anyone expresses more than mild disappointment about any of the stretch goals (e.g. "aww, I was hoping for X"), they'll be quickly brought back to reality and reminded what a good deal it already was without the stretch goals.

I am not looking at the Kickstarter comments because of this :)

      My partner for the Secret Sophie exchange this year was NecroMancer and they requested demons or some other stuff, so I painted the Queen of Hell.  About the same time I had ordered a 3D printer and I had found a base that kind of matched an idea I had in my head.  The printer was going to ship on time, then it wasn't, then it was, and finally came in just in time to print my display base. It is from the celestial pack by Archvillain Games. It's 100mm plus some overhang. For a bit of additional flair I added some blood imps to the base. 
       
      One thing about pre-made display bases though is they can be next to impossible to actually use if they are not designed well.  This base is an example of that as there is so much rubble that I had to carve away spaces for feet or build up the area with a bit of milliput to give them something to stand on. Since ancient statues were actually painted I decided to go with that and put a simple face on the bit of statue that remained.
       


       
      The Queen was actually painted before my printer arrived and because things hadn't gone crazy at work yet, I actually had time to paint her properly.  I went for a stylized NMM on her armor.  It was the first time I had tried NMM this way.  It worked but I need some more practice to really sell it.  I didn't want her to look like some cheap plastic figure (even though she kinda is ) so instead of going red like the blood imps I made her skin mostly human and then put the orange/red/purples in the midtones and shadows.
       
      Her wings don't fit in my tiny photo setup so...
       



       
      And with wings. They were not attached for shipping and needed a bit of support, so ignore the paint bottle.  Bones are evil.  Mold lines suddenly appear everywhere.  And for better or for worse, a year from now her wings will sink toward the earth, but they should rotate and touch the base.
       


       
      A few extra pics I took, if anyone wants to look

      I have me a bit of a dubious, largely because I'm not certain these will, in fact, work for anybody. But. Still.. the concept is pretty damn cool.
       
      "Tilt Five is a whole new way to play games, in Augmented Reality (AR), with freaking holograms!
      When you slip on the Tilt Five glasses and look at the game board, a vibrant 3D world opens up to you.  Suddenly chasms seem to drop infinitely into your table, and game characters and monsters spring up from the game board.  This is gaming unlike anything you've experienced before. 
      "When we started designing the Tilt Five system our focus wasn't on the technology for technology's sake.  We wanted to provide an amazing gaming experience that blends the things you love about video games and board games. And we wanted it to be just as fun when playing solo, together with your friends, or even when you're apart."  Jeri Ellsworth, Co-Founder & CEO "
       
      Be interesting to see if this lives up to itself.

      "You take your game seriously. Now it's time for a serious screen.
      In October of 2018, Dog Might released the first fully sculpted GM Screen, the Valhalla Screen. Since then, we have released over 30 more designs, including officially licensed screens for: Pathfinder, Call of Cthulhu, and Vampire: The Masquerade. We have also designed screens for you favorite shows, such as Relics and Rarities and the Critical Role stream of Undeadwood. Over the last year and a half, our Valhalla Screens have proven to be our most sought after product. "
       
      ... Would it surprise anybody here to know I want one? 
      If I can't have one, at least I can spread the word. ;p
