Bones Kickstarter #2 Discussion

Recommended Posts

And just that fast, my last post was blown out of the water. Here's the new Warlord list:

 

Gauntfield (Necros)

Mi-sher (Nefsokar)

Olivia (Mercs)

Grundor Hoardtaker (Merc)

Warg (Koborlas)

Conlan (Crusaders)

Ardynn (Elves)

Kristianna (Crusaders)

Herryk (Dwarves)

Logrim (Dwarves)

Carrion Crawler (BSG)

Hill Giant (Reven)

Traeg (Reven)

Woodcutters (Reven)

Korgug (Reven)

Bloodmane (Reven)

Toghra (Kargir)

Boneflayer (Kargir)

Boneflail (Kargir)

Krug (Kargir)

Sylph (Tembrithil)

Centaur Warrior (Elves & Tembrithil)

Chrial (Elves & Tembrithil)

Drys (Tembrithil)

Ice Warrior (Icingstead)

Ghasts (Necros) - these were left off the last list

Spikeshell Warriors (Reptus)

Dragon Turtle (Reptus)

Mountain Troll (Kargir)

Scorpion (Nefsokar)

Stone Giant (Mercs)

 

That's 31 now (not counting alt sculpts for the ghast and spikeshell, or duplicates of models, like the gnolls).

 

EDIT: Food for though - the P-65 frost giants (warrior and spearman) from Icingstead are no longer available, and have not shown up in this KS.... yet. :devil:

FINALLY a decent sized metallic dragon!!

 

I'm concerned about scale, are all of those to the SAME scale... not sure..

 

Definately not colossal-sized but I'll live. It looks to be about the same size as the Fire Dragon from KS1.

 

I'm digging the idea of getting several HUGE monsters in the same batch. The little guys are all gravy as far as I'm concerned. I am especially stoked about the giant scorpion. When they go retail I'll be buying several of them to make cavalry out of!!

re: Warlord. Um, have you guys been looking at what's been released in this KS? Warlord models are all over the place!

I was just hoping for something like a bunch from the same army, or a few addon sets or..something. And maybe the rule books? That'd actually be pretty cool, maybe as pdf's even. This is the perfect place for them to promote their game, I hope they do.

 

edit- but i do realise this will get me some minis to start an army, and a cheap scorpion is going to save me a ton. it's certainly more than nothing by a lot ;)

I don't like the Core Expansions because I prefer thematic groups, but what do you guys think?

 

Maybe if they had CE's which were thematic so the wargamers could have an instant army??

 

EDIT: Whoops -- they're gonna add more stuff to the expansion as the KS continues. Bryan's not the only person who needs sleep. Experiment, away!

 

What did you mean by thematic groups? I don't really see anything that breaks a fantasy theme there, which is what I'm assuming most people will pledge here for... granted, I'm not familiar with all those monsters, but they seem to be related?

I think he meant 'troops' of like figures, like 8 lizard men (or kobolds, rat men, whatever) in each reveal.

And that is "Core Set Expansion #1" so, #2 and #3 to follow?

 

Maybe.

 

I can't handle this. THE OPTIONS HAVE OPTIONS!!!!!

 

OPTIONS DO NOT WORK THAT WAY. OR MAYBE THEY DO...THAT'S OPTIONAL.

So with the "Core Expansion" Add-ons, do you need to buy a Core set, or can you tack it on to one of the $1 pledges?

I believe ReaperBryan answered in the ks comments that you can add the $50 add-on to a $1 pledge

      I'm sure many of you can sympathise- we see a cool model in a kickstarter, finally get it delivered and then sit flummoxed whilst trying to figure out exactly how to paint said mini. This Mystic Portal has been sitting on my painting desk since last June and I finally figured out what to do with it.
       
      Imagine that your players have just finished ransacking your meticulously planned dungeon/keep/cavern system. They've breezed through the encounters, possibly due to good dice rolls or possibly that they're a bunch of min/maxing little murder hobos. What you need is one final encounter, one last chance for them to shine or to let them spectacularly fail.
       
       There's one last room left and it's securely locked. It'll certainly be magically warded and if I know my players then that's a challenge that they won't be able to pass up. Inside the room is a single portal, made of nondescript stone but with stunning looking gems set into the eyes of it's carved dragons. Surely none of them would be daft enough to trigger an obviously dangerous portal?
       
      You haven't met my players
       
      My plan to paint one side of the portal the naturalistic stone colour and to paint the other side the fully active, just about to summon a multi headed dragon, portal. This means that when they invariably trigger it, all I have to do is spin it around and savour their worried/confused faces Here's hoping that I can actually do it justice.
       
      This is the portal. It's cast in translucent bonesium, which I like because it gives you a choice between taking advantage to it's see through quality or to just paint it like a normal mini. I opted to paint it as normal.
       

       
      There was a slight bit of warping on the base piece, but the old 'boiling/ice water' trick sorted it out in 5 minutes. I'm planning on setting the base on some warning runes, so I used the Greenstuff World Dwarven rolling pin on some foam to see how it would fit onto the pattern.
       

       
      On to the painting! I painted the inactive side of the portal Cloudy Grey 9089 and the active side Pure Black 9037.
       

       

       
      I'm not sure if I'm going to fuzz up this line or leave it as a stark contrast.
       

       
      I added a black/ green wash to dirty up the stone and added a little bit of orange to the stone to give it a little bit of texture
       

       
      The real work begins! I started blocking in the colours for the active side of the portal. Red, purplish black, white, green and blue. It's almost as if I'm trying to match my half finished Ma'al Drakar
       


       
      My coordination went a bit wobbly with the foo dogs(which are awesome, btw!) so that's where I left it for tonight. We've got a storm coming in tomorrow, so I'm hoping to get some more work done on it tomorrow. Any comments/criticism/suggestions are, as always, warmly received.

      Speed paint job that I did as part of my 4th of July Paint Binge this year.  I was vaguely going for crazy Rutger Hauer from Blade Runner, with the white hair.

      This was a fun sculpt - orange octopus definitely inspired by others :)

      Got this guy in my Bones Paint & Take Home Survival Kit earlier this year.  He was done with lots of sloppy washes and dry brushing. I put flock on its exposed twigs, for decency's sake.

      Durgam Deepmug, one of several figures I picked at random to paint for table use during the early weeks of covid-19 lockdown.  I tried a little magical/ ice effect on his sword.
