Bones Kickstarter #2 Discussion

Recommended Posts

Alright. Maybe it is just me, but I can't see a difference in the pictures. Maybe because I have been working on minis too long today?

it's probably because of bias

but these (the new villains) are the figures I'd pick out if someone told me to go through the entire Reaper selection and pick out the most flavorless sculpts.

Looking forward to the next batch, I suppose. Sorry to poop on everyone eases' fun.

 

Awwww, don't be sad! You can always add your own flavor to them with your imagination. ^.^

 

 

There are actually quite a few models that when they first appear I'm all like: "meh". But then I think: "Wait, these are Bones."

 

And suddenly it's all okay.

 

Sometimes this addiction alarms me a little.

@Flamehawke - I had to Refresh the page because the old image was still in cache.

Same.

 

I shouldn't be surprised - I mean, this is Kickstarter - but people are actually woofing about the fact that a) they get one more mini now, and b) they're all unique sculpts instead of two repeats (only four unique sculpts).

 

I mean, if you want more ratsassins, get them at retail - or trade for them - or get multiple "Oh, rats!" in the pledge manager.

 

Honestly...

"Oh we're sorry, what we are giving you is even more awesome than initially pictured"

 

okay, sure. No problem. I really really am looking forward to the giant rat. And I'd love to use the rat assassin as a PC.

Having checked out the Hellnights page on some sort of online PF thingie, the sculpts seem true to the artwork.

 

Of course the fluff goes with the "Lawful Evil, the most efficient Lawful" when in fact there's not a single real-world example of a world-beatingly effective fascism, for a number of irreducible and unavoidable reasons. Sorry. pet peeve. Well, one of my pet peeves. Well, to be honest, I kind of run a shelter for homeless and lost peeves in my spare time.

 

 

I love the rats, I hate the dwarf and the centaur, but plenty of people seem to love 'em, so you know, maybe I can trade 'em out.

I'm not entirely sure why the Dwarven gimp is there, but hey. I can find something to do with him...

Gopher centaur. Huh. Never thought I'd see those two words in conjunction...

 

I had to do a double-take to make sure one of them was actually a centaur...

I originally was not interested in the Oh Rats add-on.

 

Now, between the gopher centaur and Terry Pratchett's rat-catching dwarf, I am interested.

This was not expressed as well as I had intended.

 

"Hey, your underwear's showing. Is that a Freudian slip?"

Okay, I don't have the patience to look through the entire discussion here, much less the KS comments. Will there be a Sophie? I was really hoping for a new Sophie...

That worked Godfather. Thanks.

 

I'm not sold on them, but some of my players will want them. Notably the ones who want to play ratfolk. They are the ones who will decide they need to play one and ask me to paint them up. Good thing I enjoy the painting

Not yet, but the possibility has neither been confirmed nor denied .

All we know or certain is that if there is going to be a new Sophie, it will not be metal. Bryan has said they are not doing any metal inthis Kickstarter

      2020 has-been rough on everyone but some people have had it rougher than others.  A friend of mine is disabled and has had a really hard time just trying to keep basic necessities done.  
       
      I thought I would send her a little friend who's got simpler an cuter problems. Purple is her favorite color.  He goes out in the mail on Monday
       
      Hope you like him too...

      My quest to complete all of my Bones Kickstarter minis continues. Here we have "Fly Demon" -- pretty spry for a fly guy.  I've done the base colors, most of the highlighting, and now I need to do something more with these giant yellow eyes.  Suggestions?




      On photo review, I'll go clean up the veins in the wing a bit more.  I am considering adding a metallic glaze to the chitin and the wings.

      Back when the Bones 4 Kickstarter was running, when the Giant Rhinoceros Beetle was revealed in the Fan Favorites set, someone posted this photo of a Frog riding a Beetle to the Enthusiasm Thread, and I knew it was a conversion I would eventually want to try.  I have an extensive Frog Army, and I wanted such a figure to be a Leader or Hero for my forces. 

       
      I had the pieces I needed at hand; the Bones Black "Giant Rhinoceros Beetle", and my rider - for which i  had decided to use the Bones "Mudcroak" Squog figure.
       


       
      As I looked at Mudcroak, I knew I would have to separate him from his base, but I knew there was no way I could remove all those little toes from the base without damaging them.  So, right off the bat I made the decision to just remove his feet along with the base, with the plan that I would then resculpted them with greenstuff directly onto the beetle's back once I had the frog glued in place.
       
      Here's a test fit, with the frog held in place with blue-tac.
       
      That's all for right now.

      Ok, this may have been asked before and I have a terrible memory and I could not find a straight answer in the FAQ.

      The white material vs the slightly less white material (not to be confused with bones black)
      I have a what is essentially a bucket of bones miniatures from all 4 kickstarters.  Im a slow painter.  
      I decided to pick a few out to paint.  I painted Almaran the gold and noticed his head was deformed.  replaced it
      Next I tried Durok the dwarf ranger and I noticed his right side did not mold correctly.  Nothing I could do about it but its fine not complaining.
      Ive noticed most of my bones 4 that had the new grey material have not had these sort of issues.
      I would show pics but I dont wanna...

      My question is has this issue been fixed for the older bones miniatures,  Are they being cast in this new grey material?

      This was a quick, and fun, paint - I have a soft spot for the translucent figures - painted up as a 'gift' from an NPC to my players. Just open the box for help....
