Bones Kickstarter #2 Discussion


Recommended Posts

 

I want updates closer than every $150k and stuff that few people have use for in their gameplay unlike humongous slugs and purple translucents. Orcs, trolls, elves, soldiers, dwarves, robots, heck, even barnyard animals. Stuff that will get regular use.

I don't know what kind of game you're running but around here the tentac...

 

Never mind.

I don't mind people being pessimistic or disappointed, I just don't need to see the same people constantly reiterating they are unhappy. We get it. Move on. Reaper has shown if there is enough support for something they will move it up on the list. It's far more constructive to try and build hype about what they want.

Well I cant say I dont agree somewhat. I would like to see infantry from every race: dwarf, Elf, human, lizardfolk (with armor not this caveman stuff), I also think robots would be a welcome edition. but Im not going to say that i dont think that giant slug isnt cool and that I dont want it...nor will I say I dont want a shadow demon...because I do...

Heck, depending on final model size, I might be using quite a few Mashaafs on a regular basis. I just need to see the actual model so I can figure out what to use it for in a Tyranid force. And while I don't know about the other two, the shadow demon and the tentacles will get a crapload of use in a demon heavy Greyhawk game I want to run.

Orcs were in KS1, and a healthy number of elves and dwarves too. A troll was already available in the pre-KS Bones line. Also technically the Towns Guard from CE1 can double as "Soldiers", although I'd like to see brigands and bandits rather than just rank-and-file troops. (Also secretly I don't like the anhurian sculpts, they're very boring).

 

So robots and barnyard animals? I dunno about barnyard, but more woodland creatures would be awesome. And some ChronoTrigger-esque robots (ie, not super-sleek death machines) would be cool.

 

My wishlist has more PF on it. Love those sculpts.

 

Ultimately this really means that if they fail to hit their goals in KS2 that they have room for a KS3. They just need to be aware that if this KS wimpers to a finish that there will be some bad taste left over. I mean, look at the good taste that the 1st KS carried into this one!

Be the goat people

 

But... I don't want to be a goat person... :wacko:

 

I wasn't here for most of Bones I; was there a lot of naysaying there, too? I'm pretty sure it didn't have the RoW shipping-drama, either. Over the course of Bones II, I've seen several people say they weren't interested in enough of the figures to warrant backing the Core/Expansion #1/#2/#3. I don't know if Bones I had the same kind of thing with people poo-poo'ing the unlocks (or entire batches of unlocks, in the case of the Expansions).

 

I think Bones II will largely come down to 1) new backers coming onboard who haven't yet heard about the KS and 2) people who said "no thanks" earlier, but change their mind and become backers. A decent influx of those things (in any combination) may help provide the momentum we need to push through even the distant stretch goals pretty quickly.

There were definitely people whining about some of the reveals in Bones 1. Off the top of my head, the halfling/gnome reveal, the pdfs, and the familiars had a fair bit of complaining about to big a stretch goal for to little reward. I don't think most people were unhappy but the people that were made up in volume for everyone else.

I wasn't around either, but just looking at the comment count for KS1, things were probably pretty passive until people like you, me and everyone else jumped on board during the final week (when we were all just holding on to a figurative money-rocket).

 

I mean, they were just trying to reach 30k, and then had a few stretch goals here and there. Everything bonus was..well...a bonus. Plus, the year was 2012, which was a huge year for kickstarters and people were pledging for just about everything. Plus, shipping was free.

      Hello everyone, I'm currently working on an Ogre gang and completed the painting on this model last night. This is a 77455, Ogre Smasher sculpted by Bobby Jackson. I swapped the top of its club with that of the 77454, Ogre Clubber. I also added three more skulls at his waist belt. it was all painted with Reaper MSP paint. I will complete the base later since I may add more elements to it.

      Just a random assortment of the first painted from Bones V.  I sort of cheated...my Kickstarter arrived yesterday but I borrowed these in advance from a friend who got theirs earlier.
