Does this kickstarter mean that bones made in Texas?

Recommended Posts

Well, the topic line is the question. Will they be made in Texas ( or even USA) or will the work be going overseas?

I was wondering this too. I don't have an issue if it's a factory in China, as they have to eat too, and I don't think any American company is making plastic toys in the U.S.

 

I do wonder if this expands the range large enough, will Reaper consider building the production facilities to make them in house?

We hope to do exactly this.

The Kickstarter makes even more sense now. I'm going to shoot an email to Ed and see if he'll sign off on my own pledge level where I get to go streaking through the new facility.

We heard it here first, people...let's kick this line so hard it flies halfway around the world!

I'll double his offer to keep the clothes on.

 

For two dollars, you get my streaking likeness in the form of a model. I'll ask that sculptor makes me especially "heroic." :devil:

 

Back on topic, I'm thrilled with the long term goals as put forth by Reaper.

I'll have to run that by Ed, but rest assured, when I'm rolling through the metal bins it will be one crazy show. For another pledge level, you'll get either an electric cattle prod, or a taser you can shoot at me as I streak on by. It's a variation of the zombie run, only uglier.

Paintball guns!!! Now I feel silly not having thought of them.

 

This thread has derailed completely, so I'll bow out, but it's got me thinking of what charity I can find where I could raise money for people who need it by doing something crazy like that.

 

Abide.

I confess to being a bit sad when I see the "Made in China" stamped on the bottom of the existing Bones figures in the store, compared to the "MADE IN USA" on the back of the Reaper minis (which make me feel a little bit PATRIOTIC when I pick up a new Reaper mini at my friendly local game store ;D ). But, if there's really a possibility of having Bones production in the US, that's just awesome! :D

I likes me some Bones.

I would rather Bones be made in the US.

Ed and Kit, among others, have remarked that they would like to produce Bones in-house.

The entire process is being accelerated with the Kickstarter thingy.

 

I'm in.

 

Simple 'nuf, yes?

      Goblin Menace indeed!  I was doing fine with the other group of goblins I did 2 weeks ago, but these little green bast...guys were not as fun.  
       
      Wins:
      * Found an EXCELLENT new paintbrush - Master's Touch from Hobby Lobby.  Dang! I've been missing this level of spring in the bristles and fine edge with them.  Love it. 
      * Tried diluting steel color with black ink to help with application.  Worked great!  Will do again.
      * Switched the Sta-Wet Palette paper that came with it to just simple parchment paper.  I don't know who uses the actual paper in the Sta-Wet Palette, but that stuff is terrible!  
      * Still using as much breast cancer awareness color pink (got like 4 bottles...need to use!)
      * dry brushing the hair came out much better this time.  Lighter touch and more layers - worked better.
       
      Misses:
      * Eyes this time were more difficult.  Tried doing those chibi eyes, but it wasn't as expressive this time.  
      * Tried a base color of off-white in the eye - also didn't seem to give as much character to them.
      * Washed with Agrax Earthshade around the major bends and muscles.  Didn't seem to work as well this time.  I think it's time to try that black lining on the next goblin and see if Iike that instead.
      * using the new brushes have a bit of a learning curve to them.  Much more springy and reduced my need for pressure, however this caused some interesting streaks when I didn't mean to.  
      * I did it again! I tried using my finger to dab off an excess streak and ended up taking off some of the baselayer AND primer.  With that being the second time it's happened - the best way I can describe what I did was the scene in Top Gun where the flight tower Captain gets a second fly-by.  
       
      Overall the color of Goblin skin still works great, but basecoat of VCG Flat Green may not have been best.  May just add black to Goblin Skin and then lighten it up as I go next time.  
       
      Attempted different primers on them:
      Girl with spear - primed in black with Vallejo Black spray primer
      Chainmail goblin - primed in Vallejo Leather Brown spray primer (didn't like that as much...)
      Stone chuckers - both of them were done in paint-on Vallejo grey primer.  (worked best)
       
      Overall, they aren't bad, but they aren't my best.  Once I base them I'll feel better.  Might even go back after a few days to touch them up to see if I can straighten out the things I missed.
       
      As always - open to feedback.  Thanks for the tips on the Metallics thread.  I put it to use, but still learning.

      I checked out the Scooby Doo cooperative game play looks like something fun to play with the kids (since he will probably be 10 when it delivers )

      NOTE: You can choose one demo monster ( skull or abberattion) I chose a batwinged skull and added horns to try it.
