Questions About the Kickstarter, now that it is over


Recommended Posts

I'm working on locking in my pledge...but do we have a list of how many minis in the core are considered to fit on the various base sizes? I know (for example) the Hill Giants would need the 3" bases...but trying to build my pledge to have as many base-less as possible. Edit: Even approximations would help...though the more I know the higher my pledge goes :ph34r:

Nobody here has, to the best of my knowledge, tried to count bases sizes needed for a one of everything.

I remember a spreadsheet going around during the KS, but I can't remember who made it.

I recall that as well... It was in the VERY large KS discussion thread right around the time the first set of bases was released on the kickstarter... I'm wanting to say it was OG who was doing it, but I could be wrong.

This is the full sheet me and a friend cobbled together, I can't promise its 100% accurate but if you were to get one of everything, it tells you how many you'd need for bases of each size...assuming you based just about everything, a few pieces of scenery excepted...yup my pledge is gonna add another 200 likely.

EDIT: I seem to have botched where the Burrowing Horror, Sophie, Barbarians, and Basilisk went...I'll try to fix it soon

We encourage people to submit by midnight Central Time so we can finalize our numbers, but will not be turning off the pledge manager - it would be quite shady to prevent the stragglers from submitting a pledge at all.  If your pledge is not locked in by midnight, we will still honor your pledge, but your pledge will most likely end up at the back of the respective wave you are a part of.

So, do we have an update incoming today?

No.

From the Kickstarter FAQ

We will be making an Update on the 1st and 3rd Friday of each month until we have completed fulfillment. We will make this update, even if it is to report nothing has changed.

A curiosity question (not sure if you're prepared to answer it for business secrecy reasons but what the hey I'll throw it out there):

 

Now that the Kickstarter pledges are all presumably locked in, are you able to share how many of each item was pledged for?  For example, 5,000 of the core set, 1,000 of expansion 1, etc etc.

 

Just asking out of curiosity as to what the popular items were, or how that will then tie in to your order of production (if you had any thoughts on that?)

We currently consider the statistical data to be proprietary knowledge, but will probably release some sales statistics as things move forward.  Right now the best I can do is be vague.

 

Order of production is definitely Core first, as there were far more of that than anything, and those models also come in extra kits that adds to a given molds' run. 

 

I can tell you that there were a few surprises in which options (especially among the Orange graphic sets) outperformed other sets (and consequently, some sets underperformed their predictions and surprised us greatly), but the popularity of Expansions 1, 2 and 3 was not far from our predictive models.

I came in way late on this, having been away from the hobby for too long and am confused about the pledge calculator and the wording about "if you missed this project" - I am assuming from this thread and dates mentioned that it is not possible to get in on this anymore, but that makes it sound like I can still pledge, although I will surely be in Wave 222 for delivery. Can a dim barbarian ask for clarification? lol

I think I can clarify this one.

 

The Kickstarter ended in October 26th, but if someone missed she could enter directly in the Pledge Calculator and get to pledge and get some miniatures. But the Pledge Calculator closed in January 15th. Now you can only change your shipping address and contact information on it.

 

Sadly you will have to wait until the BONES II hit the store.

(or ask VERY nice to a friend who will get more than one...)

      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.
