Bones Kickstarter #2 Discussion

Recommended Posts

I think your answer to every complaint should be.. 'but have you seen the Gelatinous Cube?' because, frankly, thats an insanely awesome mini

[MOD] Please try to keep this thread focused on the KS. While we all love a good yarn, Character and Campaign discussions should go in General Fantasy. Thanks. [/MOD]

 

 

And, finally caught up on this beast. You all have been an excitable, chatty bunch,

Aww (understandable), but I had such nice gaming stories concerning some of the monster minis we discussed in the past day.

 

Short versions then:

On the Tarasque: how we sent it to the astral plane with a random Cracker Jack prize.

On Gelatinous Cubes: how we lost our invisible thief who explored on his own and walked into a clear cube. We wandered by that same room, saw nothing and continued on our merry way.

On Kobolds: my Pathfinder monk got killed by a kobold. A raging 12th level barbarian kobold... who rolled a critical hit.

On Mimics: we encountered an intelligent amnesiac mimic in the shape of a large door, who truly believed it was a magic door into somewhere. Walk through it and it ate you without realizing it. We carried it with us.

 

LOL @ the invisible theif LOL Couldnt he make himself visible? Sorry off topic just thought that was funny

On the two, maybe three, occasions in the first kickstarter that I wasn't keen on a stretch goal I just thought "not for me, what's next". So far I want all of KS2 but should anything come up that I'm not interested in I'll be sticking to the same philosophy.

If I don't like something it's not terrible, insulting, bad, or crap or anything other than "not for me".

LOL, I'm not complaining, but I will second the question. Can he stand up with that small base?

 

Not to run counter to Sergei too much, but yes. My Verocithrax is mounted on a 60mm round (I think). Of course, it's metal, not Bones. For a Bones one, I'm guessing you are going to want a bigger base for stability. Verocithrax is pretty top-heavy. I'll try to snag a pic of mine tonight, if you'd like.

We're having Kevin adapt the base based on what we have learned with our other dragons.

 

 

 

 

See? They're on it. That's why I have 110% confidence.

 

And we love you, Bryan. You work hard for us, above and beyond, and a whole big bunch of us appreciate it. We appreciate the hell out of it. And the rest of your Reaperino colony of tireless ant-people who do so much to deliver unto us these tiny plastic people.

 

I'm a super fan, and the only reason I'm not sending perfume-scented letters of utmost love to all of you, smeared in goblin lipstick, is because I'm told restraining orders are serious.

 

But I want to. Know that I want to.

I probably won't get any of the dragons, and I admit that I'd like to see more non-draconic stretch goals. But for goodness sake people: The core set is already a tremendous deal, you knew this when you pledged, and Reaper doesn't owe you anything beyond what you already agreed to pay for. Some people just feel so entitled.

Does Verocithrax suffer from a wasting disease? He doesn't seem very robust for a dragon...

 

If I remember the original story from my Casketworks, he's astral. Or Abyssal. Something. He's an extraplaner dragon, anyway. Likes to eat foolish summoning wizards. They may not represent an adequate source of protein.

Bryan, I hope my questions about shipping didn't add to your stress level - if it did, I apologize for that.

 

As others have said, most of us have no complaints about what is included in a stretch goal, even if it isn't one that we would have sought out in the past. I like all of the bones that I received from KS1, even the ones that I was unsure of during the campaign.

 

Can we still ask for our favorites? :blues:

Can we get some calvary please? or a hint that there will be cavalry somewhere if enough stretch goals are met?

Bryan, you know what you have to do

 

Dragon McDrac, a halfborndragon riding a dragon with a dragon skull as shield and a dragon sword made from small dragons

With a dragon pet

 

Anyway, anything you do will piss someone so listen the input but try to don´t put too much heart on them. Remember the "I don´t want free minis!" issue

 

Anyway, as the master said, Sedatio et tranquilitas

 

I´m guessing that this will surpass 4 millions easy.

I'm hoping for more figures with the removable bases later on.. those are fantastic.. Cinder and Verocithrax aren't my favorite dragon sculpts, which is good because I won't have to justify another $20 to my wife.. I wanted the Silver and we got it.. and a couple new ones.. and a couple other existing dragons I didn't even know about..

The way I see it if I give a "negetive" response to a goal. Its mearly for reaper to see who likes it and who doesnt. I see it as giving feedback. and I could very well be a minority in that respect but it is in no way to be insulting.

You guys at reaper do a great job and I own SOOOO many of your products its insane. but no ones perfect. Those guys in the KS forums need a chill pill.

thatguywiththeface, verocithrax is naturally slim, and it doesn't advance the cause of dragon equality one iota when populists like you start hating on him for his natural body-shape.

      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....
