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 exchange partner this time around was @Corporea.  She was one of those troublesome ones that are fine with anything.  This of course means that I am free to do anything, so what I did was use her as an excuse to test out airbrushing my Vallejo Air Metallics.  Because of that this mini is a little more metallic than I might have otherwise done.  The aluminum didn't want to airbrush, or hand brush for that matter, so I may have a bad bottle.  Other than that they all worked as expected. I.e. you can create a TMM effect by combining these paints with a regular paint for the shadows.
       
      I also tried my hand at a mosaic tile base.  The area I started with isn't as good as the rest of the base, but seeing as I am already late I didn't go back and take even more time to repaint that area.  Overall I thought it turned out pretty well, though I don't believe I'll be doing it on cork again. While I thought the imperfections in the surface could work as missing tiles, in practice they just ended up being in inconvenient places.

       
      But unfortunately I had to stick a mini on it.
       

       

       
      Full frontal metal shiny.
       

       
      And rotating around for those that want to look.
       
       
      I also attempted to create the look of texture by applying leather colors in a series of parallel lines.  I kind of liked it but at the same time I'm not sure that it comes across as any particular type of texture.
       

       
      And that's it for my 2019 exchange.  Next year I might even try to be on time.

      I’m working on trying to get this big guy painted to tabletop standard by the time I have to use him at our next Pathfinder D&D session to represent the Roc King on Tilagos Island in the Demiplane of Last Resort, in the Age of Worms adventure path.

      Painted up these 8 unrelated barbarians as a clan for my Wrath of the Righteous campaign. Tried my hand at non-metallic metal again. This is the result. :)

      This is one I've had "in progress" for ages. I finally mustered the courage to tackle all the eyes and then had fun with drool!
