Bones Kickstarter #2 Discussion

Recommended Posts

Like anything else, fairies have an ecology. They have a way of living. A different perspective on life. Different values, mores, and sensibilities. While a fairy may not be naturally inclined to evil, a fairy may hold things in high esteem that other races ignorantly dismiss.

 

Pick her favourite flower by mistake from her unmarked, yet still precious, toadstool garden & pool and you best enjoy all of the sweet scent you can cram into your nostrils. Every last olfactory treat of it.

 

Because when she come back? She gonna be pissed. And you, "big one", are going to pay. And you ain't never paid like a fairy will make you pay. Small stature, lonnnnnnnnng memory. You will never

 

ever

be free.

 

I've always been of that school. Fay are not meant to be taken lightly. Just remember Rip Van Winkle. He was put to sleep as a joke of the fay.

 

It's also beyond foolishness to take a gift or eat ANYTHING that a fey gives you.

Eyes blurring. The Kickstarter comments seem to have gone askew. They vanish between one refresh and the next. Entire conversations get eaten away. One refresh it's the last dozen or so even posts missing, the next odd ones.

 

I couldn't see my own posts for a few minutes, got paranoid that I'd been somehow banned.

 

Very weird.

My only issue with the new rats is I was planning on getting three and using them in a scenario. Now I'm going to have to get a few retail and hope they are available in time for BASHCON 2015.

 

But I'm sure I can find a use for the Ratling spell caster and the dwarf rat catcher.

That's pretty much the way that I run the fey. Seelie court fey will only mess with you if you offend their alien sense of propriety, or for a joke. Unseelie court fey will mess with you for no discernible reason whatsoever. And they have both very long memories and Powers™, especially in the places they control.

 

But they're all constrained by alien rules as well, so they're not unbeatable. All you have to do is figure those rules out. ^_^

 

Definitely better to fly under their radar when possible. Of course, the GM sets the radar altitude.

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

Which would mean that it wouldn't be limited edition (as that is impractical with the mold cost). So, if they do make a Sophie in Bones, it's going to play a very different role in terms of how they sell it.

OOoooh pretty cube. And I'm more interested in the rats than before, even with the puzzling dwarf. Very cool!

as a general guideline, that sounds spot-on.

I think the dwarf is a rat catcher.

 

He reminds me of something out of Terry Pratchett's Discworld series.

 

And now I wish to see more Discworld Deep Dweller dwarves, in their odd pointy hats and leather masks and long robes.

Hey, do we know what color the cube is going to be? Will it be colorless clear plastic? I've always imagined them as having a greenish tint...

Clear. It was stated in the KS update that included the green of it.

 

EDIT: I take that back. I thought it was posted there, but I can't find it now. That could mean either a) it's buried in the main KS comments, or b) I'm hallucinating. It either case, until I can prove otherwise, my answer is "I'm not sure."

      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....
