Recommended Posts

Who sculpted the Bonus Tease models? I love what they did with the hair.

The hair? Man, check out those clothes! Even an emperor would be jealous of them!

Whaaaaaaaat is the deformed-looking giant? I'm unfamiliar with it.

 

If nobody else has commented I believe it is a Formorian.  While that exact model didn't show up in a search on the site this one did http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/formorian/latest/02685and it has a similar hunched bad but not as deformed legs.

And double yay! We have pics of the invisi... hey... wait a minute...

 

<_< Hardy, har har. Most amusing ReaperBryan. <_<

 

Yeah, I missed my calling.

 

Wocka Wocka.

 

 

I looked at the core 30 preview and thought, "Man, this doesn't seem like much compared to what I got in my Bones 2 core set."

 

I had to mull it over for a while before I remembered that the core set gets expanded.

It's been too long, Reaper.  I've almost forgotten how to Kickstarter.

Heh. It does help to remember that the Core grows.  Also we did a better job this project of having the core grow for more. We've also got some new innovative products for the Core, and a few surprise goals that we can introduce randomly, in addition to the over $4,000,000 possible goals. (it helps to overplay, so to have more things to shuffle).

It is a Fomorian, and it is a new sculpt. I think it may be the only new item in the Initial 30. Not to ruin the surprise, but the Bonus 24 this time are NOT from Bones I or Bones II. We're taking a chance and these are all new sculpts. That's why I didn't want to show them. I gotta leave something for July 7 at 9am CDT. :;):

 

Also note that we are doing Wave Shipping again, but the intention is to fulfill similarly to last time, at an average rate of ~1,200 per day (actually we have been discussing improvements that could increase that...) so a given Wave of 2,000 is less than 2 days difference from the previous and subsequent waves. Assume 2 full days for clarity, and we'll easily pull 2.5 waves per week. As such, while it's super fun to be counted in Wave 1, jockeying for position is less important than it will look on paper, where we're listing a month between like last time, to temper expectations. Also, we gave ourselves longer to fulfill, given our phenomenal on-time track record...  :unsure:

CHALLENGE ACCEPTED!!!!

 

(Unfortunately I'll be chipping in for only 3 digits worth of that.)

Ed learned this week that he can add more digits simply by adding Zeroes before the first Significant Digit.  I asked for a 5-figure raise (in jest) and he offered me $00001.00

 

Sneaky tricksy accountants...

I would prefer "20" months, or less (if you count the same month twice, you can still reach twenty months under twenty months).

Plus when we had to explain to new backers who and what Sophie was and why there was a motorcycle riding succubus in a kickstarter for fantasy minis and what the Legendary version of her meant.

And then Reaper having to include an option for backers to trade her in for pledge credit.

 

That was a great moment for me. Trade in one pornographic figure for six usable ones.

When do we get our preview!! *ahem* That is to say, I am currently experiencing a level of excitement and antici...

The Core reward image isn't 100% complete - It has the first 30 but not the 24 Bonus figures yet.

 

Spoilered for image size.

And a fun Bonus Tease!

:devil::devil::devil::devil:

 

I think this is the first time you're re-releasing a figure I already have in Bones...and it's one of my wife's favorites. Fantastic!

If you look at the female with the tiny buckles, it's obviously a Werner Klocke sculpt.

 

The middle one, just from the style of the robes is a Julie Guthrie sculpt.

 

Don't you guys know your invisible mini sculptors when you see them?

I don't trust anyone who doesn't like Sophie ::P:

      This is my most ambitious attempt to date.  A mini-campaign I’m running some people through calls for many kobolds of varying colors and classes.  I had 12 Kobolds from Bones I, the 4 pack in metal that those were based off of (03064), the metal Leader and Sorcerer (03024), the 12 awesome new kobolds from Bones 4, and a 7 pack (I may have gotten a freebie, I thought I bought a six pack) of kobolds from the Ral Partha TSR Official D&D 2nd Edition line, stamped 1989.  That’s a whopping 37 figures.  I want to paint tribes from all 5 chromatic factions, and want to have as few duplicate poses per faction possible.  The Ral Partha kobolds have a more simian or canine face compared to the more reptilian face of the Reaper models, but I’m still going to fold those into each faction.  The Adventure calls out a Cleric (Red) a Ranger, (Green) and a Sorcerer (Green).  Those are the only ones with specific art, and I have models representative of each present without need for modification.  Also, I am not planning to add to the bases at all.
       
      And I want to finish all of this in about a month (unlikely)!
       
      Wish me luck!

      I'm working up the nerve to start the larger mushroom characters from the darkreach expansion with this little guy. I really wanted to see what a bright colour scheme would do for the figures, playing on the idea of a brightly posionous mushroom. This is the result.

      Oh, @Glitterwolf !!!
      Paging WOOF!
       
      So, this is .. .terrain? Some armies? With optional C'thulu thrown in for good measure. I know nothing about anybody involved, YMMV.

      Everyone, meet Viridius.  
       
       

      He's a hefty boi.  No Ma'al or Kalladrax, but still pretty big. He doesn't even fit in my light box, as you can see.   
      I've thought a long time about how I was going to paint him up, I don't think I'm going to go with the standard green dragon look.  Instead I'm going to take my inspiration from the time of year, and make him an autumn forest dragon, whose coloration changes with the forest around him.   So I'll be doing him in mostly golden yellows to oranges and reds, but keeping some greenish tones as the base of scales and other places, to kind of give a reminder of the verdent glory he was before.
       
      One thing I'm choosing to see as an opportunity is that the tops of his wings are very smooth, ideal for some freehand work.  The question is, what to do?  Some kind of leaf like pattern, or perhaps a butterfly like eye pattern (in the leaf colors, of course)
       
      Out of the box bag he was in pretty good shape.  The usual mold line cleanup, though he has some gaps that will need to be filled.  I followed up with reshaping the wings a little with some boiling water.  I forgot to get a complete before picture, but below you can see the before and after for the right wing


       
      I've had to fully assemble him, I don't like the way the wing joins look without greenstuff, so that's going to be the first order of business.  So painting around the wings might be a chore, but it's nothing I haven't dealt with before (Although, not in recent history)

       
      I begain the gapfill on the right side, but after sticking a finger in greenstuff twice and having to flip him back to touch up the texture, I decided to call it a night and do the left side gaps later.
