Questions About the Kickstarter, now that it is over

Right now we are hoping that Bones 1+2 will make Bones self sufficient and that instead of Bones 3 we can grow the line incrementally and focus our KS efforts on smaller projects that we've always wanted to do but could never fund.

 

Not to say we won;t Bones 3, but right now we are planning different projects to launch after fulfillment.

 

What would a self sufficient Bones line look like? Could we expect new Bones releases every month or two after KS II fulfillment?

Have there been any more sizes listed for some of the stuff in expansion 2?

 

I know we've got a size for the demon lord of minotaurs, but what about some of the other stuff?

 

I'm most curious about the dracolisk, the frog demon, and the shadow demon and hound. Hopefully big and chunky!

 

Also wondering- if you guys are going to be able to get Bones up and running as a self sufficient line, any chance those mysterious hidden stretch goals we never reached might turn up? Will we continue to see bits and pieces of scenery and decor show up?

Shadow Demon's torso is the size of a human torso. The Frog Demon is a 2" Base, Dracloisk is also on a 2" Base. The hound already exists in metal.

 

Bryan, thanks for another fun Kickstarter!

 

Given the fulfillment waves and their projected dates into next year, my wallet is thankful that I'm probably not looking at another Reaper KS in 2014. I know you can't confirm or deny anything with that regard. However, I do have a question.

 

Assuming the Dragon Don't Share 2 was a hit success with regards to pledges during the KS2, would you foresee Reaper releasing a few more of those type of Bones dioramas in 2014?

It would be something we'd like to be doing, yes.

I also want to ask about this, Dragon Don't Share II was my favorite thing from this Kickstarter. I really like that it was in multiple parts that fit together. Is there a possibility of other terrain items that would also fit together with the ones from Dragon Don't Share? It would be nice to have some interchangeable ones.

 

the original DDS? No- that was built with a purely decorative oval base. As for fitting other terrain to this DDS, probably not with the precise interlocking tabs, but compatible with, sure.

 

Can we see the artwork for the planned not-tiamat/takhisis?

 

Should anybody ask how does DR know of such things, it's simple. Reaper loves to give it's customers what they want, and WE WANT A NOT-TIAMAT/TAKHISIS!

Nope.

 

Any chance we can see the whole map from this Kickstarter or the last one?

 

Also, how close did the results of this Kickstarter match what you guys had planned?

We will not be releasing any other versions of that yet. Our worst case plan was not to break $1m. after that happened right away, we sat down and developed a new worst case for under $2m. $3-3.5 was our primary goal, so I'd say we pretty much hit it.

quarterly releases most likely. but as for when we'd begin that process, I cannot say it would start right away after KS fulfillment - we need some time for sales to happen.

Since I am local and have changed my Wave to a much later tier...when can I expect to come pick up my goodies? Oct 2014 ish? If you say sooner I will not hold that against you if it does not work out that way. :)

When the update goes out that we are ready to begin Wave 1 shipping, you will be able to come get your stuff - but please call first so we can dig your order sheet out of the database and have it ready.

So, just to clarify, when shipping begins we can expect a "now serving Wave X" update? Will that announcement be for each wave, or will it just be "we have begun shipping" and go from there?

 

And if you can't predict next year now, I won't hold it against you. :;):

I'm a ROW backer and will have 2 boxes shipped to me (together with 4 friends). Is it possible to put a declared value of 150$ on one box and (total - 150$) on the other box? Suppose I switch to three boxes, that would be 150$ on two boxes and (total - 300$) on the last.

 

Earlier you told me that you'd divide it 50%-50% or 33%-33%-33%, but since that's not the correct value anyway, I don't think it would make a difference how you divide the amount.

 

That would save us 30$ in handling on each box past the first. We'll live, but it seems minimal effort to avoid this additional cost.

Something I've been wanting to ask since these were revealed... The Lemures and Angels of Sorrow. I've seen these before in resin. I would be most interested in hearing the story of their acquisition. (i'm dying of curiosity but no matter how I type this i can't make it not sound accusatory. sorry. :down:)

Thanks for another great Kickstarter!!!

 

Put me on the list of those of us who appreciate the bases -- so much so that I pledged for a few extra packs. Question: they appear to be similar to bases that WoTC used for D&D minis (flat on one side, with a shallow lip on the other). Are they from the same manufacturer? It won't change my mind either way, I just want to know what to anticipate. The D&D minis bases were fairly rigid, but still a little flexible. How do these compare?

Someone mentioned earlier about not being notified about Bone 2 when they were a Bones 1 supporter. I didn't get notified either. I found out because another KS project postponed their start due to Bones 2. I went back and looked thru all my emails & spam, and I don't see anything... Anyway, thought I'd report it in case you want to survey your Bones 1 backers before you do your next KS.

KS 1 update #99 went out launch day announcing the new KS. Don't know what to say here.

      Osmoticmeld is an experiment! It is a collaborative partnership between the renowned artist Ian Miller and [John Robertson], and was born of a serendipitous meeting over social media many moons ago.

      I must also extend special thanks to both Sebastian Czarnecki and David Pauwels, they have been incredibly generous with their time in giving advice, support and guidance: Seb’s also designed our website and David’s done some fabulous work with his hair sticks!







       


      I've been following these on facebook for what seems like ages as they've been sculpted and am impresses with how close they are to the Ian Miller artwork that inspired them

      Here are two little guys for the new year: Bones vege-(or vegy-)pygmies, sculpted by Kevin Williams. 
      In the game lore, they are plant creatures arising from infestations of russet mold, so I wanted to incorporate rusty orange- and red-browns with the green.  
      (And if you're still in the holiday spirit, you can sing a rousing round of "Rusty the Moldman".)
      I spent about 2-3 hours on each. 
      It was fun to play with a few oranges, reds, and purples, along with the greens. 
      I thought about adding foliage or other material on the bases, but decided to call these two done for now.
      Enjoy!
      - Derek

      As you continue exploring the cathacomb, you catch sight of a ghastly humanoid creature walk in your direction. The stench of death and rot lingered around its undead forms. You recognize with horror, a minion of the dark necromancer queen Kiaransalee. This is a 77159, Ghast sculpted by James Van Schaik.

      Well, finally painted him - and I'm pretty satisfied. I heavily borrowed/copied from this post: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/84520-77594-solar-angel/#comment-1788530, 
       
      It went better than I expected.
