Bones Kickstarter #2 Discussion

Recommended Posts

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...

Well IMO it should be clear thats the whole thing that makes them dangerous theyre clear so PC's just walk into them in dungeons

Hello everyone!


I've been lurking the Bones II Kickstarter threads for a couple weeks now since my DM caught wind of the new Kickstarter campaign. We missed the first one and have been green with envy since Bones started showing up at our gaming tables.


I've noticed a few sporadic comments throughout the threads that certain dragon sculpts are intended for specific chromatics and metallics. Is there a list somewhere that could help me match all of the Bones dragon sculpts to their intended targets (Red, Blue, Silver, etc)?

Clear and colorless are not the same. I saw that it says translucent plastic, but the last KS' translucents were colored, and I was hoping that this one would be as well.

 

Buying it either way, of course.

I'ma be useless and say paint the dragons however you like. They are not official D&D sculpts, after all.

 

I think Ebonwraith is meant to be a black dragon and Deathsleet a white one, but that's the extent of my knowledge. Hopefully someone better acquainted with them than I will be along to help you.

 

Me, I'm going to paint them however I feel like.

By the fact that the image for the water elementals specifies "blue," and the cube image specifies no color, we can infer that there is no color to be specified. This, to me, also makes sense given the desire to actually see through the cube, as the colored translucents from ks1 are not remotely transparent (nor should they be). Colorless will still be translucent rather than transparent, but not to the extwnt a colored plastic would be.

 

Of course, this is speculation, and "infer" is a nice way of saying "assume," and you know how that goes.

Ebonwrath is black, cinder is red, deathsleet is white, blightfang is green and stormwing is blue.

As far as I am aware, there are no metallic dragons in that general size range.

Ebonwrath is a black dragon

Deathsleet is a white dragon

Cinder is a red dragon

Blightfang is a green dragon

 

This is all subject to opinion, but it is the gist I get. You can of course change the colors to suit your tastes.

 

I would also love to see metallics that match up to those and some other dragon varieties, but I'll like adapt the dragons to the colors I want.

Someone had mentioned that the dragon at the top of the first expansion was a Silver. I have no idea how to verify this, but there you are.

Which I assume is due to them being "good" dragons, and thus less likely to be used as combatants vs. players. ::P:

 

Was Nethyrmaul's color ever specified? I'm not sure it matters so much for an undead dragon, but I'm curious if there's an "official" color for him.

I'll be damned. http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/silver%20dragon/sku-down/02539#detail/02539_p_1_mj

 

Yup. Silver.

 

He's still relatively small though.

 

Edit: And here he is with Garrick. http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/silver%20dragon/sku-down/02539#detail/02539_p_3_mj

So he's about Flit's size.

I believe Reaper Bryan is painting his green. That's about as "official" as I've seen, although I confess I've always imagined him such myself; probably due to seeing him made of green stuff when first sculpted. ::D:

No, he's much larger. About the size of the Fire Dragon from "There Be Dragons".

      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....
