Bones Kickstarter #2 Discussion

I'm in Colchester so not far away at all and I work at the Sub Base in Groton. I'll be in Virginia for pretty much all of November but other that that and any family obligations, I'm game.

 

Where in VA? I'm in Dale city.

I'll be in Norfolk for work all of November (well it's scheduled for all of November; I'm hoping to be finished in time to be home for Thanksgiving).

You crazy Americans stealing our town and county names and confusing me! :P

 

I always do a double take when I see a place name of somewhere in America that originated near me, especially when the details are not quite right. Colchester is south of me. In Essex. Not Norfolk, which is north of me. *twitch*

 

(I live between Ipswich and Woodbridge (both in Suffolk), both of which I believe have counterparts in Norfolk, Virginia)

ehh... we have to remember not to put too much faith in the concept art, scale wise that is. The art is just a rough estimate. The sculptor is going to be a big factor in the interpretation of the concept and then Reaper can have the digital scan enlarged or reduced before making the mold. So making tight number size predictions off the concept art is going to be tenuous at best.

Surely Reaper would have scaled the art to be the size that the Mashaaf will be in comparison to Forscale.

 

They scaled it to be about what they think it'll be, but that's no guarantee the final product will be exactly that scale.

Yeah, just look at Kaladrax...

Sooooo...... once this is all over will get get to see what's left in Reaper's hand that we didn't unlock? I'm a masacist like that. :devil:

 

Nope. Same as last time. Whatever we get to is, for all intents and purposes, all that existed as a plan. I'm surprised we even found out cavalry were an ungained goal last time, and that probably only happened because of all the sodium thiopental I laced their food with in an effort to gain information.

 

The rigorous mental training they undergo makes them largely immune to interrogation methods.

Well, the cavalry were a bit conspicuous because of that tombstone which had hoofprints on it that suddenly disappeared.

Also, as a random wishist I hope there are supers in expansion 3. It probably won't push me into adding the expansion, but I'd pick up so many Captain Griffons at retail for conversions.

    BTW, the sculpt is done, but we didn't have a good photo so we went with the art instead. Kevin Williams did an amazing job translating it. And she is *huge*.

    We will absolutely put up pics of the sculpt as soon as the mold is made and I get a casting. Trust me, it's fantastic. And, it absolutely works for fantasy. The concept of Mashaaf comes from our Warlord game. But, she's been co-opted to be much more than that. :)

Wow. I completely failed to see anything like Mashaaf coming. (I am also unfamiliar with particular Mythos monster), still, looks pretty cool. She will definitely go on my list of things to add, if budget allows. :bday:

 

Also: We're already $10k past the Mashaaf unlock. Things really have picked up this weekend!

Not a fan of the recent stretch goals.

 

Well I'm not a fan of the recently unveiled ones, but I was a big fan of the angels so honestly I don't care. It's nice that all the stuff I'm not excited about is lumped into CE#3, I'm already looking at Core + CE#1 + CE#2 + dragons. Which means my $200 budget is pretty much toast.

 

EDIT: Fixed typos.

Our current pledge:

 

3 Core Set

2 Core Expansion Set #1

1 Core Expansion Set #2

3 Heroes and Villains

3 Master Series Paints

2 Master Series Paints 2

2 Oh, Rats

1 Unleash the Kraken

1 Lords of Darkness

5 Narthrax Dragon

1 Mouselings

2 Water elementals option

2 Gelatinous Cube

3 Hill Giants

1 Dungeon Decor II

2 Blightfang

2 Cinder

1 Sylvan Creatures

1 Devils

1 Greater Demons

 

That's from 5 people where two of us share one of the core sets and the other two sets are one each for two of the other pledgers.

There are still some of the stuff available which I'm considering pledging for (including Mashaaf!), although some of it will have to wait until the post-KS phase.

Then there's the stuff we haven't seen yet (I'm definitely in for the ruins/dragon set!).

      Osmoticmeld is an experiment! It is a collaborative partnership between the renowned artist Ian Miller and [John Robertson], and was born of a serendipitous meeting over social media many moons ago.

      I must also extend special thanks to both Sebastian Czarnecki and David Pauwels, they have been incredibly generous with their time in giving advice, support and guidance: Seb’s also designed our website and David’s done some fabulous work with his hair sticks!







       


      I've been following these on facebook for what seems like ages as they've been sculpted and am impresses with how close they are to the Ian Miller artwork that inspired them

      Here are two little guys for the new year: Bones vege-(or vegy-)pygmies, sculpted by Kevin Williams. 
      In the game lore, they are plant creatures arising from infestations of russet mold, so I wanted to incorporate rusty orange- and red-browns with the green.  
      (And if you're still in the holiday spirit, you can sing a rousing round of "Rusty the Moldman".)
      I spent about 2-3 hours on each. 
      It was fun to play with a few oranges, reds, and purples, along with the greens. 
      I thought about adding foliage or other material on the bases, but decided to call these two done for now.
      Enjoy!
      - Derek

      As you continue exploring the cathacomb, you catch sight of a ghastly humanoid creature walk in your direction. The stench of death and rot lingered around its undead forms. You recognize with horror, a minion of the dark necromancer queen Kiaransalee. This is a 77159, Ghast sculpted by James Van Schaik.

      Well, finally painted him - and I'm pretty satisfied. I heavily borrowed/copied from this post: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/84520-77594-solar-angel/#comment-1788530, 
       
      It went better than I expected.
