what are you going to do with your kickstarter Bones?

Recommended Posts

My friends and I are relatively new to roleplaying, but we'll most likely use the bones for that. My boyfriend wants to start painting them but I'm a bit skeptical as I like the mono-colored minis (Monster in my Pocket was my favorite childhood toy). As creative types, I brought up the idea of writing and illustrating little bits for each figure we're inspired for, as practice.

Just set them all up on the coffee table and MARVEL at them for a while, to begin with.

I'm going to dive into the box and swim around like Scrooge McDuck in his gold vault. Many of them are going to be NPCs in our ongoing enormous homebrew campaign. We're making up future encounters e

Pretty much decided that if I get a Vampire box with those faulty face moulds that people have pointed out, I can't be bothered reporting the problem to Reaper but am going to save them and paint them

I'm actually going to play my first session of pathfinder this sunday with a group at my local comic shop... cant wait... always wanted to learn how to play DnD growing up but never got around to it... today is my 42 birthday and i got some rule books, and some dice to go with all these minis ive been painting

Happy birthday and welcome to the table. You're never too old to use your imagination and roll some dice.

I'm thinking of converting Mr. Bones into holding a sign, make multiples of him and turning him into a protest rally with the "More minis now!" slogan. hmmn. Or maybe "More Cloud giants now..."

I'm going to convert three copIes of Mr. Bones into @Bob, @Greg and @Dan, but I'm really tempted to get one more to put in a diorama. It would have Mr. Bones wildly scrambling to escape from a pickup truck sitting in a drive-thru lane.

Practice, practice, practice!! And probably fight with my daughter over a few of them. Fortunately we did manage to figure out which add ons we both wanted, so I doubled up on those!! Otherwise, I'm going to just sit and stare at them as I try to figure out where to start.

Agonise over which options I want, and more importantly can afford, and whether they are better value than extras of some of the core set stuff, and which paints I want, and whether I need to save some money aside for good brushes and primer, and...


Also, trying my hand at some painting; with an eye to maybe incorporating some of the stuff with my old HeroQuest stuff by putting matching paint schemes on each.

I'm now thinking I might have to do some conversions for Blood Bowl. Hadn't thought about it, but recently got a non-gamer interested in the game and right now I only have the initial box teams orcs/humans. So I get stuck with humans.


Hmm...might need to order some Bones werewolves....taste the frenzy/claw!

      Hello people! i would like to share with you an upcoming Kickstarter campaign that will start on April 20 and last until May 10.

      Previews for Reaper's June releases just went up in the "Previews" section, and they're from the Bones 5 Kickstarter.  Granted, there's still April and May unaccounted for, but there are a number of large models from the Bones 4 Kickstarter that haven't been released at retail yet.  We already know they're suggesting that the Stygian Barge may never be released, but I'm hoping most of the rest will be.  By my count, all of these haven't hit the game stores yet:
      Dragon Turtle
      Agramon, Duke of Hell
      Blacksting Wyvern
      All of the Fantasy Scenics
      Thunderfoot Behemoth
      Blacktooth Terror
      Dance of Death
      Mossbeard Treeman
      Skeletal Dragon
      Am I missing anything?  Any word from Reaper about whether or not these will ever be available againt, outside of the Bones 4 Kickstarter?

      I was a little surprised to not see this already here.  I just got a 48 hour notification on a game called "Lurkers of the Deep" - it's apparently an expansion to a miniatures game, but in addition to the game they're also selling a bunch of 20s/30s pulp/cthulhu style minis.  (And a number of buildings, too.)  I'm not interested in the game, but I put down a 30 pound pledge to get a bunch of the figures and get the various free stretch goals figures.
      There's only another 46 or so hours left, so I guess that means it ends early on March 1st.

      From the page: "Explore the deeper mysteries of The Dark Eye with Magic of Aventuria and enhance your gameplay with additional rules, professions and archetypes on 240 pages! Magic of Aventuria gives you access to new magical traditions, perks and spells and gives you the background of what magic is like in Aventuria. Magic of Aventuria allows you to take complete control over the mystical art by delving into some of its strangest and most powerful practices of every kind of magic – from word, to song, to dance. Expand your magical repertoire with new traditions, spells and enchantments! Nearly two dozen profession packages expand options for starting characters and new focus rules for spell workshops allow mages to develop new and exciting spell effects!"
      We have been collecting The Dark Eye books for a while; and have been pleased with the previous books from these kickstarters; can recommend.

      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.
