If CE2 and 3 aren't fulfilled, I can imagine that Reaper may disassemble them and sell them off as 2-3 addons each instead of 1 big addon, so I don't think saying "this isn't happening" is helpful.

 

I don't see that happening, since it could in principle lead people to reducing their pledges, and possibly re-locking goals that that have already been unlocked (though unlikely).

 

I think that if by the end we don't fully unlock expansion 2-3, Reaper will take action at the pledge manager level, either by giving additional credit to people that have pledged for those or possibly by allowing pledge manager money to count for unlocking the remaining parts of the expansions.

Fear is the mind-killer... I'm sure my players will all be flabbergasted when they see this wonderful, horrible, gorgeous, and ugly monstrosity being slapped down in front of them! Oh, so many possibilities!!!! MUAHAHAHAHAHHAHAH HAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHHA HAHAHAHHAHAHAHAH AHAHHAHAHAHAHAHHAHA :devil:

 

Sorry, had to get that evil laugh out of my system, I'm doing it in real life right now too! :blush:

Or they may change their mind. So far none of the expansions have enough for me to pay $50 but I would gladly give them more than that if I could pick sets out of each. Never say never.

You do realize that you can pledge the money anyway...and once all the unlocks are open you can either allocate that $50 elsewhere OR change your pledge back down to what it was. this way you can help everyone see what they are getting AND make a better decision as to where to put their moneys

By that logic everyone should just pledge $1000 or heck $3000 dollars and then dial it back to the $100 or $300 that they intended. ...sorry, I will pass.

I see this as the risk inherent with bundling your addons, but it's their show so they get to run it. I don't see how it could reduce pledges, since I'm pretty sure most people haven't pledged towards any half-complete CE's.

 

Even if they have, the pledge amounts will drop anyways once people pull their $50 pledges so why not give them 3 $10 pledges so you only lose $20 instead of $50?

Is this model appearing out of a wisp of smoke or is that his cloak that is all tattered up?

Looking at the picture that probably inspired it...

 

Cloak emerging from the shadows? (needs more translucent smokey purple) ::P:

.....some people have been doing that...and it does get annoying..but that IS how the system works.

*shuffles in*

 

Bluh, I hate it when I forget to set my alarm and wake up way late cuz I didn't go to bed until 6am.

 

*checks email* Oh cool, we made the stretch goal. Let's see what the next reveal-

 

::o: *drops mug of liquid*

 

*realizes she doesn't actually have a mug of liquid, fills one up and then drops it*

 

OH MY GOSH THOSE TRANSLUCENTS ARE SHINY!!!

 

:wacko::unsure::ph34r:

 

*increases pledge by $50*

 

Husband is not going to be happy.... :down:

 

Huzzah!

EDIT: I never in a million years thought I'd be saying this about a giant tentacled slug monster, but Mashaaf is one sexy sculpt. I don't need it I don't need it I don't need it...but I WAAAAANTS it!! *rages at not having enough money for all the minis*

Dang, there is no probably about it. That looks cool. I will probably heat it up so I can exaggerate the posture more like in that picture.

 

That is a good point about translucents. It would look good painted if the wispy part was left translucent purple with a smokey thin black wash. You have changed my opinion of translucents.

      Hi there all, I've decided to dive into the deep end with finally trying the scary world of OSL. 😄
       
      Feel I've lost the plot on this ... so any advice on how to proceed with this would be greatly appreciated! (Having fun, though, despite not knowing what the hell I'm doing. 😁)
       
      I'm including a "top down" view, which is where I'm most confuddled. That dark line down his arm which represents the shadow from the staff which sits between the source of light ... it just doesn't look right to me.  🤔
       
      So, I'm all ears for suggestions on improvements!

      Been a minute since I've posted a WIP, so I figure I'd roughly document my current paintjob.

      I'm running a 5e game with a heavy focus on the Shadowfell, and our most recent addition to the party is a native of that realm - a Hexblood or "Hexen" in our game lore. These dark fey are the children of hags - The Mothers Three - and are made from earth, blood, and stolen souls.

      Going for a dark but vibrant paintjob - blue skin, and dark clothing.


      After priming, I like to block in my darkest colors. It makes it easier for me to avoid missing a hard-to-reach spot later, but without worrying too much if I get some paint where it's not supposed to be.  This method also helps me to visualize and plan out my colors better.

      I was instructed to paint her with blue skin, black hair, and dark clothing. I started with the skin. I based with Rich Indigo and plan on working up towards Surf Aqua.  I'm hoping this transition from a more purple-hue in the shadows to a bit of green in the highlight will look interesting, as well as kind of capture the overall color scheme.

      I chose a few other colors to sort of represent that scheme and stippled them over the base - Rich Indigo, Deep Ocean, and Carnival Purple. I eventually want the base to look like rocky terrain, but wanted to avoid neutral greys.
       
      Pure Black for the hair and then set about base coating the rest of the mini.
       
      I wanted to avoid all-black or shades of grey in her outfit so dark greens and purples will be used to keep things more colorful. The tattered robes got a mix of Pure Black and Deep Ocean. The fabric wraps are Dark Elf Shadow - hoping to keep the purpleish greys.

      I also slapped some Deep Ocean on the gemstone on her staff for a pop of color - will reuse this for other gemstone details.
       


      The base got washed in Pure Black - will play around with some drybrushing later. Metal details also got hit with pure black to work up to some NMM silver.
       
      Settled on Ashen Brown for the bone details. The slightly cooler purple hue should help the bones blend in with the rest of the mini.
      Also hoping to use the Ashen Brown to highlight the hair without it looking grey.

      Not much to see so far - just some quick basecoating before work this morning. Hoping she turns out as I'm picturing and not just a garish blob.

      Side note - this sculpt is one of those earlier Bones sculpts that are quite difficult to pick out details.  I'm inevitably going to paint over some random blob and not notice until later.

      Got my Reaper Bones V goodies a bit ago, and slapped some paints onto the Pumkinhead beholder.  I used Citadel Wraithbone primer, contrast paints, and Army Painter Matte varnish and...  months later it remains slightly tacky.  It's not...  awful.  But it's enough that if I put it away in a box with other minis, I'm afraid it won't mix well.  I've left it out in the sun for a day, thinking that might 'bake' the stickiness out of it...  It did not.  
       
      I got Reaper Bones because I figured I could paint, varnish and throw into a box with all my prepainted minis.  Some of my older bones remain slightly tacky too.  But I figured that with this new round of Reaper Bones, they would have got that figured out.  I've painted up the undead giant, but not yet varnished him and I'm afraid to!
       
      I've read the various Reaper Bones help threads, many of which are very old (and one sent me to Facebook, though it looks like it's no longer available.  I don't do social media anymore, so not sure?). 
       
      Does anyone have any advice to help a guy out?  I'm pretty sure I shook my rattlecan varnish adequately.  I do live in western San Francisco and wonder if the humidity (fog, it's often cool and misty regardless of the season) may affect this.  I try to wait until the weather is clear.
       
      What are you doing to keep your Bones stickiness-free?  Any advice you might have would be helpful.

      This one has been on the desk for awhile to receive paint as there was extra on the palette. I decided to finish him off last night. Added highlights to the cloak and skulls. Shaded everything, but the cloak with Army Painter Dark Tone. I didn’t add any highlights or shading beyond the basics as it isn’t a great cast. But, I think it turned out great for the toy box.

      Here's a collection of the second batch of finished minis I have from Bones V.


      Party like a Barty.

      They're not sure why they've been typecast as Thieves:


       
       
      "What do your Elven eyes see?"


       
       
       
      Kobolds, the only thing as dangerous as a Giant Rat in a starter dungeon.
