Bahamut has always been portrayed as a large winged dragon. If he didn't have wings he would really be a not-Bahamut, but no one would ever by him as a proxy.

 

He really just needs to be a majestic looking Tianot sized dragon with a singular head.  I think if Julie were just told that an awesome sculpt would happen!  It just needs to match the size and grandeur of Tianot.

I hope the bonus 25 will be either a new set of decor, or maybe a selection of forest/farm animals. I'm not very interested in the core yet but I'd be ecstatic about more decor.

Even if not in the bonus minis, I would not be surprised to see decor in stretch goals added to core like before.

Am I the only one who has no interest in a multi-headed dragon? Maybe I'm just odd..

 

As to number of backers and pledges, I strongly suspect they will go down a bit again (especially with the shorter campaign time). Note how many people have expressed *just in this thread* that they're going to pass on the core and get only the add-ons that they want. I know I myself will be in for the core set at minimum, but I won't be able to go as crazy with the add-ons as I did last time.

Definitely So many people absolutely loved the Bones I & II decor. If you look at Paizo's latest batch of pre-paints, the decor pieces are selling for more (individually) than most of the figures. There seems to be a real demand. I bought multiple sets of the decor in Bones II and got a pile of the Bones I decor at retail. It took forever because most places were sold out of the decor.

 

That said, the bugbears, gnolls, ghasts, and bugs were a terrific bonus 24 last time. I can never have too many bugbears, gnolls and undead.  (≧∇≦)

I don't know about anybody else, but dragonlance and specifically "The Dragonlance Chronicles" are what got me into reading then gaming when I was 14. More importantly away from my more mischief oriented friends. Takhisis-anot (aka Penelope) is a fulfillment or homage to finding DLChronicles.

Plus it's an beautiful sculpt!

      One of Bob Ridolfi's sweet little undead monsters from earlier this summer.  I tried some grey skin tones to give her a "definitely not human" look, with the contrasting pale yellow funeral dress.  It's all right, and there's nothing you need to be concerned about here....

      Or, as I like to call him, Smaul Hollywood.

      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.
       
      Update 3 Nov 21: over time the tackiness was getting worse; I could no longer pick up the model for fear of leaving a nasty finger print...  (In particular, the elements that had GW's "Nurgles Rot" technical paint for some reason reacted really badly, and were quite gooey!)  But I finally got a pot of Testors brush on Dullcoat/varnish and it worked like a charm.  The figure is no longer tacky.  If that changes, I'll come back to update again!  🙂

      Hi all, just thought I'd share a couple images of my first Reaper mini painted up. It definitely seemed strange not priming something before getting started (typically print my own lately in resin, so have to prime those), but I wanted to try one of the Reaper products.
       
      I am by no means a pro, but each mini seems to get a bit better - constructive criticism welcome - I know I need to get a better photo setup sometime - maybe when the basement reno is done 🙂
       
      Next up is Boerogg Blackrime the Frost Giant...I love doing monsters so they're on-hand when needed for our D&D campaigns 🙂
