Bones Kickstarter #2 Discussion

Recommended Posts

I am trying to figure out how high I should pledge with the new thank you, but in ks.reapermini.com it doesnt seem to recalculate correctly. :(

People are stupid that Thank you is awesome!

 

Although slightly confusing in its naming. I almost added a $1 pledge when I went to update in the pledge manager.

I did a silent happy scream when I saw the numbers tick over to 3 million. YEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHH!!!!

 

I think it's smart that Reaper isn't including another stretch goal. They want to ensure that all visible stretch goals are met before the end of the KS, and they probably don't want to have to deal with another situation like KS1, with a stretch goal revealed in the final hours, then nobody knowing whether it unlocked or not because we crashed everything.

 

Servers will probably still crash, but I don't think it will be as bad this time.

 

Huzzah!

Oh wow, I just went back to that Highland pack after pledging and I'd totally missed the Cloaker. Cloakers are pretty much my favourite odd D&D creature, there was this weird Cloaker city (Rringlor Noroth I think!) in the Underdark in one of the Forgotten Realms books that I thought sounded really neat. I'll be getting so many cloakers when they hit the store...

We got about where I was thinking we'd get last week. Doesn't look like quite as much of a last-day push as I thought, but we made more in the days leading up to it than I thought, so it evens out.

 

Definitely excited about DDSII and Khanjiru. Those are going to be fun to play with. Oh my yes.

 

 

 

 

But maybe I'm picky about terrain. The first thing i noticed about the kaiju's base was how the cyclopean* wall's cut looks off because it does not look like separate stones along the cut edge.

*IIRC there was a masonry style closer to this than cyclopean, but the name escapes me.

The ruins are more Romanesque medieval architecture.

Cyclopean is more of a Lovecraft term, isn't it? When I think of cyclopean architecture I think of things like this.

 

cy·clo·pe·an
ˌsīkləˈpēən,sīˈklōpēən/
adjective
1.
denoting a type of ancient masonry made with massive irregular blocks.
"cyclopean stone walls"

 

From the assumption that such huge stones could only have been put in place by giants, such as cyclopes.

I've put in my max of $600. That'll get me everything I want with a little buffer in case anything gets added.

 

Bad timing for the end of this... my mother is in town and just got an offer this morning on my house that I've been trying to sell for 3 years. Lol my brain is mush!

Hey, the thank you set isn't increasing the total in the pledge calculator... that might result in some pledges being off.

Mine did.

But it was EXCITING. At the rate it's going, 3.1 looks likely with at least an hour left, so I'd love to see a 3.2 BIG BAD.

Maaaan, how am I ever going to avoid showing my Scottish lady love the Highlander pack? I want it to be a surprise, but she's the only one who'll put up with my excited Reaper-related ramblings...

I restarted internet explorer and it worked after that (maybe some stale temp files), though it is possible they fixed something at the same time.

      2020 has-been rough on everyone but some people have had it rougher than others.  A friend of mine is disabled and has had a really hard time just trying to keep basic necessities done.  
       
      I thought I would send her a little friend who's got simpler an cuter problems. Purple is her favorite color.  He goes out in the mail on Monday
       
      Hope you like him too...

      My quest to complete all of my Bones Kickstarter minis continues. Here we have "Fly Demon" -- pretty spry for a fly guy.  I've done the base colors, most of the highlighting, and now I need to do something more with these giant yellow eyes.  Suggestions?




      On photo review, I'll go clean up the veins in the wing a bit more.  I am considering adding a metallic glaze to the chitin and the wings.

      Back when the Bones 4 Kickstarter was running, when the Giant Rhinoceros Beetle was revealed in the Fan Favorites set, someone posted this photo of a Frog riding a Beetle to the Enthusiasm Thread, and I knew it was a conversion I would eventually want to try.  I have an extensive Frog Army, and I wanted such a figure to be a Leader or Hero for my forces. 

       
      I had the pieces I needed at hand; the Bones Black "Giant Rhinoceros Beetle", and my rider - for which i  had decided to use the Bones "Mudcroak" Squog figure.
       


       
      As I looked at Mudcroak, I knew I would have to separate him from his base, but I knew there was no way I could remove all those little toes from the base without damaging them.  So, right off the bat I made the decision to just remove his feet along with the base, with the plan that I would then resculpted them with greenstuff directly onto the beetle's back once I had the frog glued in place.
       
      Here's a test fit, with the frog held in place with blue-tac.
       
      That's all for right now.

      Ok, this may have been asked before and I have a terrible memory and I could not find a straight answer in the FAQ.

      The white material vs the slightly less white material (not to be confused with bones black)
      I have a what is essentially a bucket of bones miniatures from all 4 kickstarters.  Im a slow painter.  
      I decided to pick a few out to paint.  I painted Almaran the gold and noticed his head was deformed.  replaced it
      Next I tried Durok the dwarf ranger and I noticed his right side did not mold correctly.  Nothing I could do about it but its fine not complaining.
      Ive noticed most of my bones 4 that had the new grey material have not had these sort of issues.
      I would show pics but I dont wanna...

      My question is has this issue been fixed for the older bones miniatures,  Are they being cast in this new grey material?

      This was a quick, and fun, paint - I have a soft spot for the translucent figures - painted up as a 'gift' from an NPC to my players. Just open the box for help....
