Bones Kickstarter #2 Discussion

Recommended Posts

 

was it specified on any post whether or not the Calvary were going to be separate from their mounts?

 

The original bear rider is one piece (with weapon sprue) so I don't see that being different in plastic. Sir Danel is two pieces, rider and mount, so the plastic one might come that way. Count Lorenth is also in pieces. In short, don't expect the Bones to be significantly different than the metal versions.

 

OTOH, Bones have often been different in the past. Different materials require different molds require different divisions. It is possible that it will be easiest to cut them in the same places, but we can't assume that they'll necessarily be the same.

True, but I imagine cutting a mounted figure under the legs would not be the most efficient or simple of tasks.

 

I suspect the only way one would have a separable mount and rider is if they were sculpted separately to begin with.

Does anyone know if there are already-existing non-mounted figures that correspond (needn't be identical) to the three mounted characters at the start of Expansion 2?

That is, are there non-mounted minis for Ursula the dwarf, Sir Daniel, and/or Count Lorenth?

Some searching around:

The boneyard has the others sold separately.

I just noticed something odd on the Pledge Calculator. When I "reset all values" to zero, the Calculate comes up $10 (+8.69 shipping = $18,69).

I tried to add the Core set and the result was $110; other combinations also were $10 too high.

 

Am I the first to notice this?

Needs less core set expansions and more dragon options. It'd be awesome if we got a stand-alone dragon option comparable to the size of Nethyrmaul this time around... (I've said it before, but I'm willing to say it again)

Ah that must be it. Where did it go?

(and how can I change it)

 

There's a dedicated thread about the PC; I'll take it over there..

Ursula is the only one with a true unmounted equivalent. However, you could probably find analogous figures for Danel and Lorenth without looking too hard. Just check out the other figures in the Cursader and Overlord factions (respectively) in the Warlord line.

Ursula looks good. (odd that I missed her earlier, obviously my search fu is weak)

 

The other two are just the separate, but sculpted-for-being-mounted, figures, so they don't really meet what I'm looking for. I'm hoping to identify non-mounted versions that I could paint to match, so they could be used for the character when the character isn't mounted. (I'm definitely not skilled enough to chop off torsos and put them on other minis' legs...)

 

Hopefully they'll be created and added to this Expansion, but if not, I'll keep hunting for which ones would come closest. Any suggestions are welcome, thanks!

 

EDIT: Warlord line, Crusader and Overlord factions. Cool, I can do that! :)

It just occurred to me that since that "Heroes and Villains" add-ons include detachable bases, that means separate moulds for each section. That will likely increase the per unit cost of the retail price, won't it? It has been my impression that the more separate pieces the more expensive the Bones mini becomes. I could be wrong about this since it is just speculation on my part.

      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....
