Bones Kickstarter #2 Pre-discussion

Recommended Posts

So my wife is due during the kick starter think she will mind if I am checking everything while she is labor? Someone told me that was a bad idea but I'm not for sure

It depends... is she going natural or with pain killers? If she uses the painkillers (spinal block, etc.)... just blame it on them and that she was hallucinating... just don't get caught on camera... (or if that happens, let her know you were updating facebook for all her friends). See? sometimes the correct answer is not 20 (nor even 6).

She is going all natural and she hates Facebook. Plus right now she has a firm dislike for my minis due to the amount of time I spend on them. So I think I am screwed. Help me reaper your my only hope

LOL, though I have not had a wife in labour, I have been the sounding block of many of my friends who's wives have.

 

The Kickstarter will be going for a month. The good thing about cell phones is that they work in the washroom where you can lock the door. If you can fake food poisoning or some other gastric ailment, this should give you plenty of time to keep up with campaign.

 

BTW, Congratulations on the pending arrival of the baby (and your KickStarter pledge).

Whoa... Good luck with that Lord Dragon. My wife is going to be asking for any and all drugs to be in her the moment labour starts.

Also, got the okay to spend some hard earned cash on the Kickstarter by putting together every piece of baby furniture we bought and then organize the baby clothes. My back and shoulders are killin me, but that's just muscles. I only care about them Bones!

This time around I have little reservation about pledging the full amount, getting all the extras that I like and hopefully paint sets and a couple of mini cases (because I am lazy and now have many many miniatures)

Earmarked ~$400 for this... Probably not something I should have done with two holidays planned, a ps4 on order and big foam cutting table coming.

Next goal, save some money and then let go of it to buy a 3D printer r_r.

 

fwiw, The KS1 cases were a bust. The glue had problems, and the spaces to put the mini's in were too small. Since they were made by a third party, I'm guessing Reaper would use a different party, or not have cases at all. In any (ahem) case, ask questions about the cases before adding them on. I've noticed many KS projects have defects or compromises caused by a rushed schedule (eg. sculpts), and the cases are an example.

 

Myself, since Bones are less fragile than metals and paint stays on them better, I use an inexpensive plastic bead box from Michael's for the human-sized miniatures. I line them up with cotton squares, but am not sure if I really need them. http://www.cardinalenterprises.com/darice_storage_containers_3.htm

 

Hope the PS4 is for someone else, because you're gonna need a lot of time to paint that Vampire set...!

If she is in labor she can't pay attention to you right? Just practice pressing the refresh button with one hand (I hear women squeeze your other one).

My wife had a baby in 2012 and I broke my hand the night her water broke. She was naggin me to go deal with the neighbors upstairs who were super blasting their club music. So I did and they turned off their music, but my hand was broken afterwards. Which was hilarious because shes like ok lets drive to the hospital, and I was like umm my hand really hurst, so I drove really really bad. We got to the hospital at 11pm. In the morning the doc came in to see her and everyones like hey dummy go to the ER so I was like fine whatever.

 

Got some x-rays/CT/soft cast went back and baby was born at 5pm. I took one percocet the whole time, cause I figured heck shes in pain.

 

The one thing I took away from it was she nags me now saying "yeh you wouln't hold my hand and comfort while I was in the hospital" Jeesh my hand was broken!

 

So stay by her side and hold her hand, be at the head of the bed and slightly behind her sometimes and check your phone.

 

Also check when shes getting her epidural, tell her your watching her back.

 

My wife hates the time I spend on minis and terrain, she calls it "porn" when I browse Kickstarter or Reaper forums.

I agree that the glue is not the best but the size issue is not really that bad. I fit over 3/4 of my vampire figures in the cases. I have pretty of other figures to fill up the rest of the space in the two cases I bought. I hope they do have cases again since I'll need some more for the new KS. If not I'll just have to go out and buy some more. Any suggestions on better cases if you don't like the Reaper ones? Thanks.

Start watching real porn and leave porn mags (do they still make those?) lying around the house. See if she prefers the minis then...

Based on my experience with other people having babies, if it were my wife I think I'd be asking for the drugs. Not for her, for me.

 

If I had a wife. Which I don't. So... problem solved. Huh, that was easy. I wonder what else I can get done today?

 

 

Also, for the record, being wifeless is not because girls don't like Buglips. They seem to like me very much. They also seem to instinctively know that Buglips, while great fun, is not marriage material.

 

This is an arrangement I do not find troublesome. Although there were one or three I might have agreed to tying the knot with. Not all three at once. Well, I guess that would depend on local laws and what they thought about it.

 

I'm going to stop here, because I'm about to get myself in trouble.

Based on how often goblins and rats are paired in random encounters I can only assume there's an R.O.U.S. out there for you. Ya just might have to search the fire swamp for her.

 

Edit: aaand I should try harder to stay on topic, I'm really hoping for another Dungeon Attack-like freebie or add on. I really need to try painting and they seem like a great place to start.

Hello, I'm new to the forums, and to collecting and painting minis in general. I missed the first KS, but I plan on getting in on this one. I have a quick question. What's the purpose of refreshing the KS page all the time?

 

Thank you
