All your Bones are belong to us!

 

Reaper, you really need to add another block of 5 'VIP at Reaper for a week' pledges. The are high value, went fast and there are still more folks that want them.

 

Other Kickstarters have added new blocks of the same pledge that proved popular. I can't recall which it was at the moment, but one added at least 2-3 additional blocks of the same pledge as it kept selling out.

I've been hoping that squar tombestone would be a case. I've needed a carrying case for a long time, but they've always been so expensive that I've chosen to buy more minis instead. Now I'm definately going to pledge and add the $25 for the case with the hope that we make it (no reason we shouldn't). I'll need something to carry all of these lovelies in when I take them to game night. It'll also be nice for taking stuff to painting competitions.

 

I really hope that the case we get comes stamped with the Bones Supporter logo- that would be an added layer of cool. And it would make our cases all special and unique and stuff :D

 

My 40k auctions ended yesterday, final payment was just made, so I'll be pledging on Kickstarter sometime today!

Since Reaper Con is the month after the Kickstarter "ships", I wonder if they could give you the option of picking up your 'winnings' there instead of shipping them, or would that cause to much of a logistics headache...

We can totally do that.

I'd say that the Case reveal definitely motivated some people to pledge. Even though we are currently working on a 25K goal in the middle weeks of the KS, we're on pace to knock it off in about 24 hours.

Haven't been this excited since my advent calendar when I was like 6.

Can't see it raising less than 450K even if it slows down dramatically, I'd say we most probably will see well over 500K.

Also we reached 12 stretch goals so far by going 230K over the goal. If they don't start increasing the amount needed for goals a lot more than they have it seems we are on track to open the delicious mausoleum.

Beyond the stretch goal reveals, the "end game" for this is now what I am most looking forward to. I anticipate the last few days to be nothing short of insanity, as people who have been holding out finally make their pledges, as well as all the people adjusting their pledges up to get the stretch goal items they want included with their existing pledge. It should be a wild ride at the end. ::):

I'm kind of afraid I'm going to miss out at the end. I've already pledged the max I can afford, and I know by the time this ends, I won't have pledged enough for ALL the options I want, even though I have a "spare" $40 still in my pledge right now.

Yeah, definitely. Those cases look nice. They caused me to trigger my own pledge by $50.

      Hi there all, I've decided to dive into the deep end with finally trying the scary world of OSL. 😄
       
      Feel I've lost the plot on this ... so any advice on how to proceed with this would be greatly appreciated! (Having fun, though, despite not knowing what the hell I'm doing. 😁)
       
      I'm including a "top down" view, which is where I'm most confuddled. That dark line down his arm which represents the shadow from the staff which sits between the source of light ... it just doesn't look right to me.  🤔
       
      So, I'm all ears for suggestions on improvements!

      Been a minute since I've posted a WIP, so I figure I'd roughly document my current paintjob.

      I'm running a 5e game with a heavy focus on the Shadowfell, and our most recent addition to the party is a native of that realm - a Hexblood or "Hexen" in our game lore. These dark fey are the children of hags - The Mothers Three - and are made from earth, blood, and stolen souls.

      Going for a dark but vibrant paintjob - blue skin, and dark clothing.


      After priming, I like to block in my darkest colors. It makes it easier for me to avoid missing a hard-to-reach spot later, but without worrying too much if I get some paint where it's not supposed to be.  This method also helps me to visualize and plan out my colors better.

      I was instructed to paint her with blue skin, black hair, and dark clothing. I started with the skin. I based with Rich Indigo and plan on working up towards Surf Aqua.  I'm hoping this transition from a more purple-hue in the shadows to a bit of green in the highlight will look interesting, as well as kind of capture the overall color scheme.

      I chose a few other colors to sort of represent that scheme and stippled them over the base - Rich Indigo, Deep Ocean, and Carnival Purple. I eventually want the base to look like rocky terrain, but wanted to avoid neutral greys.
       
      Pure Black for the hair and then set about base coating the rest of the mini.
       
      I wanted to avoid all-black or shades of grey in her outfit so dark greens and purples will be used to keep things more colorful. The tattered robes got a mix of Pure Black and Deep Ocean. The fabric wraps are Dark Elf Shadow - hoping to keep the purpleish greys.

      I also slapped some Deep Ocean on the gemstone on her staff for a pop of color - will reuse this for other gemstone details.
       


      The base got washed in Pure Black - will play around with some drybrushing later. Metal details also got hit with pure black to work up to some NMM silver.
       
      Settled on Ashen Brown for the bone details. The slightly cooler purple hue should help the bones blend in with the rest of the mini.
      Also hoping to use the Ashen Brown to highlight the hair without it looking grey.

      Not much to see so far - just some quick basecoating before work this morning. Hoping she turns out as I'm picturing and not just a garish blob.

      Side note - this sculpt is one of those earlier Bones sculpts that are quite difficult to pick out details.  I'm inevitably going to paint over some random blob and not notice until later.

      Got my Reaper Bones V goodies a bit ago, and slapped some paints onto the Pumkinhead beholder.  I used Citadel Wraithbone primer, contrast paints, and Army Painter Matte varnish and...  months later it remains slightly tacky.  It's not...  awful.  But it's enough that if I put it away in a box with other minis, I'm afraid it won't mix well.  I've left it out in the sun for a day, thinking that might 'bake' the stickiness out of it...  It did not.  
       
      I got Reaper Bones because I figured I could paint, varnish and throw into a box with all my prepainted minis.  Some of my older bones remain slightly tacky too.  But I figured that with this new round of Reaper Bones, they would have got that figured out.  I've painted up the undead giant, but not yet varnished him and I'm afraid to!
       
      I've read the various Reaper Bones help threads, many of which are very old (and one sent me to Facebook, though it looks like it's no longer available.  I don't do social media anymore, so not sure?). 
       
      Does anyone have any advice to help a guy out?  I'm pretty sure I shook my rattlecan varnish adequately.  I do live in western San Francisco and wonder if the humidity (fog, it's often cool and misty regardless of the season) may affect this.  I try to wait until the weather is clear.
       
      What are you doing to keep your Bones stickiness-free?  Any advice you might have would be helpful.

      This one has been on the desk for awhile to receive paint as there was extra on the palette. I decided to finish him off last night. Added highlights to the cloak and skulls. Shaded everything, but the cloak with Army Painter Dark Tone. I didn’t add any highlights or shading beyond the basics as it isn’t a great cast. But, I think it turned out great for the toy box.

      Here's a collection of the second batch of finished minis I have from Bones V.
