Bones Kickstarter #2 Discussion

Recommended Posts

Oooo, I like her! She's sassy and full of fight, and that armor is totally wicked awesome!


If she weren't being added to the Core, I'd add her to my pledge. And I'm one of the people who traded her in last time (nothing against Sophie, we just had more need of $25 than of a succubus riding a motorcycle, as nice as the piece was).


Also, digest is being worked on, I was working on it in MS Word while the thread was locked, and I'm having some formatting issues. :P



--OneBoot :D


I was the exact same way OneBoot, I traded in the last Sophie as she wasn't something that went with the rest of my collection and that $25 was given right back to Reaper for some nice add-ons (dragons!).


Ooo can't wait for the special report!

+1. Just because a lot of people decided that a metal, modern-setting Sophie wasnt worth $25 that could be spent on other things (eg shipping, or Kaladrax and other add-ons) doesnt mean she isnt awesome. Especially this new one.

Okay, here we go! (timestamps are all over the place due to my working on this off and on, plus formatting issues)

@Reaper: Are the bases stiff plastic (similar to Games Workshop) or are they softer plastic (Similar to D&D Minis bases and Bones figures)?
Thank you!


Bryan Stiltz 14 minutes ago

@rob Mitchell - hard plastic like our existing bases, new design, as shown.


Randy 27 minutes ago

What size and how much is Sophie by herself?


Reaper Miniatures 25 minutes ago

@Randy - standard character size, in Bones, and $2. The Calculator update is more intense, and takes a bit of time, but we'll have it shortly.

Izzy "Talin" Collier 27 minutes ago

@Reaper: Also, you need to credit Ivyetta on that one, too. She probably put as much into that design as I did, if not moreso. ;)

Benjamin Chernik 30 minutes ago

i'm assuming the sophie figure is in bones and not metal correct?


Reaper Miniatures 29 minutes ago

@Benjamin - in Bones, yes.

Hey, if you haven't done it yet, make sure you go like us on facebook!

@james A - Last night. Bear in mind this is LOCALS not TEXANS - Locals can pick theirs up, and because of this do not need to be in an early wave - we will let them pick up on demand. Waves help us organize trucks and shipments, and locals need not worry. LOCALS who intend to PICK UP should pledge at a LATE wave, rather than an early one.

Ben Schiltmeijer 21 minutes ago

Hi Reaper forgive my slight ignorance, I've just change my pledge from a wave 5 core to the $1 wave 2 pledge. My total pledge amount is the same and I still intend to get a core set at $100 plus all my add ons. Will I still get the full core with all of the stretch goal unlocks?


Reaper Miniatures 20 minutes ago

@Ben - Yes. You can select any rewards, including the Core.


Aard_Rinn 23 minutes ago

The kickstarter thread on reaper's website is locked for some reason. Was fine, went to take a test, came back, is locked. :C


Reaper Miniatures 21 minutes ago

@Aard Rin - too many inappropriate jokes that violated board rules. It will be unlocked soon and they will be reminded of the rules.


Michael Lawler 39 minutes ago

@Reaper (Bryan?) - what happened to the rest of the map?


Reaper Miniatures 35 minutes ago

@Michael Lawler - Managing expectations. More can be shown when we need to. NOTE: When, not IF...

@Reaper: Oh, hey. It looks like you guys are kinda lurking. So, how's your day going? Feeling that Home Stretch Excitement? Looking forward to Sunday and taking a day off?


Reaper Miniatures about 1 hour ago

@Spade - We've spent a great deal of today watching, and discussing. Not so much posting. But yeah, we're looking at curves and graphs and analyses and our accountants have run scenarios. I know that after the official KS Party Bryan is having a few friends over to protect him while he gets drunk. Beyond that, sleep is on the schedule.


Niranth about 1 hour ago

@Bryan, Can you tell the shipping ratios based on those using the pledge calculator?


Reaper Miniatures about 1 hour ago

@Niranth - I *could* if we had closer to full participation. Right now only 9,000 of 13,000 have used it. Of those, less than a third are ROW


Izzy "Talin" Collier about 1 hour ago

@Zach: The "one stretch goal ahead" reveal strategy was one that wasn't as common before the first Reaper kickstarter. Basically, you'd see the next stretch goal, and that was that. By showing two ahead, Reaper effectively keeps people reassured that no, the next goal isn't the last - but also allows a small degree of flexibility. Also, as with the last KS, people will only see the one goal they DIDN'T hit. It's one thing to look down and see that the party ended with a piece of pizza left on the table, it's another to look down and realize that there were five pizzas, breadsticks, cake, a new car, and Tiamathulurrasque that you missed out on.


Bryan Stiltz about 2 hours ago

Got the Model for Mashaaf in. Getting that photo ready to update the graphic.
Been a lot of meetings today. Last few days and we are looking over all the plans.


Izzy "Talin" Collier about 2 hours ago

@Dan: I think that could well be what Ron was hinting at. And I'll just put this out there... I don't know what size the Pathfinder Shadow Demon is of the top of my head, but I'd love to see some demons that clock in at the "small-to-mid-sized-dragon" scale. *nudges Ron* Hint, hint. *elbows Ron in the ribs* DON'T YOU WALK AWAY! I WILL NOT BE IGNORED! I... *wibble*





Once again, I'll paste this here outside of the spoiler box so peoples see it. Emphasis added by me.

      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.






      Yoho, a Pirate's unlife for me:


      Draugr...I mean, Rune Wights.







      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.

      Under the Sea.
