Bones Kickstarter #2 Discussion


Recommended Posts

I'm actively spamming my twitter and facebook followers, about 2-3 posts per day hawking this KS. I want more rewards to hit, I'm doing my part. I also dropped a mention of it over on Ars Technica (I'm an active forum member there); hoping to get a few more folks coming over to check it out.

Sorry for the quality (my scanner is broken) but here it is:

Sorry, no. The insanity spread to some of the people from Reaper over on the comments tonight...   Presenting... Pitamat   There's no going back now...

Blah, insomnia strikes again. So, without further ado... *cracks knuckles* Alright, chums, let's do dis. LEEEROOOOOOOOOOOOOOY JEEEEEEEEEEEEEEENKIIIIIINS! ~~~~~~~~~~ Antonia Vogel about 4 hours ago

So I realized something a while ago - this Sophie is actually clever psychological warfare!

 

It sounds like madness, to think that there might exist souls who have yet to see the light of Bonesium. Foul and shuttered, they dwell amongst teetering stacks of wretched, heavy, fragile pewter, guarding their whitemetal hoards.

 

But... they too cannot resist the Sophie's siren call! So they will hiss, and they will pale, but they will allow this lithe white succubus amongst them, swearing fell vows - that she will be the only; that they will buy no others.

 

These are lies, my friends. Lies! For we have seen this before, in Brother Buglips and a dozen others, and we know that it is false - once one has smelled the sweet scent of pale plastic, seen it's cleanness, felt it's gentle yield, one cannot turn away. They will return. "For a dragon." They will say. "Only a few mooks." They will say.

 

Lies. They are already ours, then. We have already claimed them...

I have missed creative writing. My god, I have missed it. My first love, my only... It's been a long time. All these PbP are fun... but I need to get back to FF.net.

As a Reaper noob, what is the deal with Sophie, is this a mascot or based on a actual person at reaper?

 

p.s. My "Warlord Second Edition" book just arrived today so more Warlord minis that fit in that books factions would be much enjoyed.

Introductions are in order: Sophie(s).

 

Thats not even all of them....There is this one thats OOP that I wish reaper could bring back...I'll have to see if I can find a pic

 

Yea, none of the convention sophies are pictured there except for the resin one (which also had a metal counterpart).

the Lesser Fire Elemental from the first Kickstarter is noticably more flexible than the rest of the translucent red sculpts. Probably because of her wings & the need to remove her from the mold in one peice.

 

The lesser fire elemental is not one piece. Oh, yeah, she was one piece when you got her in your box 'o Bones, but her wings are separate. ::):

Than they crank out a prototype in a day? That big worm thing when from art to model photo in about 24 hours.

Potentially, it depends on the sculptor and what they are asked to do. I wouldn't expect Bobbie to turn out the green for Sophie in 24 hours, but potentially by Saturday.

 

It also depends on how long they've had the concept art in-hand; they may have had it for a week or more and the sculptor already hard at work.

 

I'm kind of surprised they went with a Bones Sophie, given her status as their go-to subject for exclusive miniatures. Still, an armored succubus is sweet and pretty rare, so I'm sure she can be used for a variety of gaming situations.

 

Still, I think I'm extremely wow'd by Mashaaf. The concept art was sweet, but the figure itself looks amazing(ly nasty)! :ph34r:

Ok. I have to have Mashaaf. Just so monstrously awful and terrifying. And at the sametime I am sad knowing that she won't come to the table in my family adventure. She would send my youngest girl physically fleeing to her room to hide. And it would be months before I could get her to comeback to the table. But one day, I will DM a game where she will rattle the bones of tiny heroes, and players will mourn the deaths of a beloved adventurers. Yes I say...... one day...

 

MUHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHA

 

there aren't many figures that make me want to cackle meniackly, butthis one does.

I wouldn't mind seeing them do a new paint case. Something like the current one but either larger or deeper so I can get rid of one or more of my carrying cases.

Hell, I have three cases dedicated to paints. An ArtBox, my old GW Gray Box, and a tacklebox.

Because of the way the store works, the search feature will not show you models that are not available for sale. However, if you go here:

 

http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/SpecialEditionFigures/sku-down

 

You will see all the special edition figures that are no longer in production, including all the OOP Sophies (well, ok, there is at least one that isn't there; the UL version of the 2010 Convention Sophie).

There is nothing that says they won't do a metal version as well.

I'd be lying if I said I wasn't anxious about a few more Mousling unlocks, but Teh Reaps done did me a good early in the campaign, so I can't really complain. Suggest, however, I can do. More Mouslings. Always. Also, hecka nice policing, LS and RB. The maturity and niceness around these parts keeps these parts valuable, and it's good to see those qualities preserved with a sternity. I think I just made up 5 words.

True, they may well do a metal version of the Bones Sophie sometime after the KS. I'm just surprised that they made a Bones version at all. :;):

I am hoping the sophie model ends up something that fits the feel of gameplay miniatures. It would be a cool character to add to an RPG or wargame proxy, with her wings, she'd make a cool Legion Everblight warcaster or solo for Hordes. A lot of the other sophies I see seem too posed and pin-up style, more like ornaments for someones desk.

      This one has been on the desk for a long time. I really like the sculpt, but the cast is a pain as I find most of the older human sized Bones models. The Face was atrocious. Luckily he has a big hat. The photos are washed out but give a good idea of how he looks. He is too shiny for my tastes as the newer Testors Dullcote doesn’t seem to work as good as it used to. Unsure how I ended up going from a coal black duster to green, other than I had too much green paint out for the Marines I was trying to get off the shelf of shame. 



       
       
      One down and thousands to go! 😀

      Bad photos, bad Bones cast, and tabletop paint job of Balto Burrowell the Gnome Wizard. Painted this one up as my sons kid character in hero kids. Fuego is a young kid who can cast some fire spells and has survived three adventures and he was on his own in the last one. 
       


       
      I am really beginning to loath these older human sized minis, but this is the closest I had to a human child for his character. Fairly simple base coat, washes, and highlights. I was having a lot of problems with my skin tone paints being too thin (even after several minutes on the vortex mixer). I guess that is the pit fall of no painting for months outside of terrain.

      So here they are. The Ogre Squad. You can see the WIP here.
       


       
      I love how nonchalant and casual this guy looks.

      especially when compared to this guy.


      The oldest of my ogres. Metal and unfinished for years because I was just never happy with him. 

      another angry ogre
      fond of the face(s) on this guy and also the pig. The rope on the barrel was a little frustrating though. It had a mold line right down its length and even though I wasn't doing much line cleaning for these guys that was both a hard one to fix and a hard one to ignore.


      the bones black ogre has the best grumpy ogre face. He painted up nicely with very little clean up to ignore.

      the other metal ogre Kagunk and his amazing shield. This guy sat just primed for a good long while as I just was never sure how to handle the shield face. The older chieften's club face was easier since it was always going to look like wood, but this I had to think about a bit. I think it works pretty well.

      a few attempts at a group shot. Bigger minis are hard to keep all in focus at once.
      There it is then. There are a couple of details I see I still need to do and the metal chieftains need to be sealed. But otherwise that is it for this lot. I did by the other ettin in bones and I might order the other ogre leader and I think I have a bones half ogre around somewhere.  If I paint them I may update this with new squad members. We will see.

      My waste paint receptacle for my ogre squad. Nothing special or exciting but he's done too.
      probably his best side here.

      This side no so much. I don't know think he translated into bones as well as some of the others like the ogres. But then, he's just a mook so who cares. 

       
      Oops! Looks like I hurt his feelings. He'll feel better when he's amongst his metal brethren. He has a much better base than they do.

      A dumpster.  I started painting it as part of Aaron Lovejoy's blending class.  Then had a ton of fun weathering it.
