what are you going to do with your kickstarter Bones?

Recommended Posts

I'm guessing Simple Green, it seems OK with most stuff. I can't really say, never tried. Just a hunch.

 

That would be good news if it works safely. I have a gallon of Simple Green under my kitchen sink. It's my weapon of choice when needing a painting mulligan.

Giggle maniacally while unpacking all the lovely miniatures. Then start cursing as I spend weeks trimming flash off them. Then it's a mix of painting and more cursing as I find other flash/mold lines that I somehow missed first time around. Usually after I've painted the area.

 

Finally try and come up with a Bones/Monopoly game.

I'll be painting most of them up for myself to be used when I play Pathfinder- especially when I'm DMing.

 

The IMEF marines and Nova guys are going to be painted up and sold as alternate Space Marine models.

 

I'm going to need to stock up on super glue before these things arrive!

I am going to take a week off, and stock up on paint, brushes, junk food, soda, and booze. Netflix will playing 24/7 while I paint until my eyes bleed, and I will try to remember to take 20 minute power naps now and then.

First I'll forget I bought them, and then I'll be so extremely happy when I open the package. Then I'll make my girlfriend look at each and every single model, until she snaps.

 

 

..And then paint them over the next couple of years.

1. Paint (hopefully)

2. Populate my Heroquest revamped modular dungeon

 

 

I'll also use them for regular roleplaying games, I play a number of fantasy based settings including Stormbringer, Warhammer Fantasy, and D&D. The Chromoscopes and Novas though I feel are perfect for Shadowrun. So, while I wasn't in love with the the Sci-fi bones at first I'm actually quite excited to get back into the setting now.

 

I made my original post prior to the release of the Cthulhu figure so now I can add "Call of Cthulhu" to the list. Also picking up a set of Deep Ones and later wil most likely track down a purple worm. So many games, so little time.

Now that my group has divided up the bones we purchased (virtually of course) I have a better idea what I'm getting.

 

Most will be used for Song of Blades and Heroes warbands. I've been mostly running elf and forest dweller (animals mostly) warbands, but now I'll be able to make warbands (6-11 figs usually) of:

-Mystic travelers (pathfinders and others)

-Evil Warriors (Evil heroes and a few others)

-Heroic human Fighters (Heroes, etc)

-A mixed warband of all the classic fantasy tropes (mostly from the 30 new bones section)

-A Fire Giant Warband

-I'll be able to add a griffon and Bugbear and a few of the small familiars to my animal warbands.

Many of the above will hopefully see action in "Fanticide" also when I pick that up.

 

Still not sure what I'll do with Ebonwrath, but I don't have a large dragon yet and this seemed like a good time to get one.

 

The 3 sets of Nova troopers and two nova sgt's will be getting a red and blue paint scheme and faceplate helmet heads from Pig Iron and be painted as Cobra Vipers for use in Tomorrow's War and WarEngine.

 

The Zombie fighters, Chronoscope cowboys, Cloaked pistol hero and others will be incorporated into my post-apoc warbands for Wastelands Meltdown

 

So I've got quite a bit of painting coming up in March. (plenty to keep me busy until then though...) Splitting Vampire with 3 other friends means that there are a number of figs that I didn't get that I'd like, but I purchased only a few upgrades so 65+ figs is a much more manageable number to paint than 200 or so. I'm quite happy with what I got as I ended up with almost nothing that I wasn't excited about.

 

As for the actual painting process, my club recently started having marathon painting evenings so that should push things along. Still, with other painting and terrain projects also in the queue, it's unlikely that they will all be painted within a year.

My general plan is to paint one or two a week, to get myself back in to the habit of painting. Their main use will be for Generic Medieval Fantasy RPGs, when and if I get a new gaming group together.

Does SoBaH support all the mini's offered in the KS (or at least offered in the Vampire pledge)?

 

Thanks!

Paint'em Paint'em all. It may take me the next 25 years but hey that means I'll make it to the ripe old age of 70 at least. I'll need to make sure I still have a back log of figs by then so I can live long enough to see my 3 yo son's kids graduations from college. ::):

ced1106,

 

Song of Blades and Heroes will cover every miniature in KS.

 

It comes with premade profiles that cover most of the miniatures in the KS. However, the real advantage of SBH is that they have a free online Warband creator that allows you to stat up and point cost any fantasy miniature you can think of based on stats and special rules (attributes).

http://www.ganeshaga...php?pages_id=17

 

SBH includes special rules that cover the attributes of most any fantasy charachters, but one of the main reasons to also buy the supplements is that they contain additional special rules to give more charachter variation to your warband.

 

Hit the link in my sig for lots of SBH battle reports.

I know a lot of people are going to be using a little of everything to make inquisitorial henchmen squads...which reminds me, we need another chronoscope pack, with one of those space orangutans! I need a Jakaro Weaponsmith.

That is freak'n ingenious! Consider your idea officially stolen errr borrowed.

 

Mine are going towards a project with my dungeon molds to build a replacement for my Warhammer Quest dungeon. Unfortunately I forgot to look at Gencon for a used (or new) second edition rule book to see what changes have happened with the RAGE system.

 

Oh yeah and some kind of zombie stuff. Not sure what but as someone who doesn't own any zombie movies yet I have hundreds and hundreds of zombie figures from different game systems something has to give.

Never joined the forum until now but have been a huge Reaper fan since I started painting minis a year ago.

I was really glad to meet the fine folks behind them at PAX East this year, super awesome people!!!

 

I was so pumped up to be able to support them via a kickstarter :)

 

I am going to paint all the minis. I only play fantasy games (aka D&D), but I am going to paint everyone of them anyways. I know I will spend more time on the Klocke classics, and other female minis. Bugs and skeletons will get airbrushed and highlighted faster. Dragons will be the most time consuming...

      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.

      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
