Serious questions so help PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

1)  Is there a maximum number of any pledge level or add-on that we are able to pledge for?

2)  Will we be able to add to our pledges after the kickstarter?

3)  Does Reaper send all a backers pledges together as one shipment normally or are they sent as individual pledge boxes?

 

Any help much appreciated.  :) 

 

To exapand what Dan and Granite said.

 

1. Yes, there is a 10 of any "item" limit. However, the way Reaper does their post-KS pledge manager, each "mini or group of minis" in the Core set can be purchased twice. Once from the Core Set and Once from the add-on list.

 

2. Reaper has updated their pledge manager to allow for not only adding money to your pledge but now you can add any amount as many times as you want. Previously you could only add money one time. Also, previously the pledge manager "closed" months ahead of the production being complete; now the pledge manager will be open until the boat leaves China.

 

3. One shipment, yes; but if it's large enough there will be multiple boxes, which each have their own shipping label and may or may not arrive together depending on the shipping company and local shipping hub.

Qwyksilver - Dastardly plan - I like it.  And of course I actually forgot to mention 'custom charges' as well (20%).   ;)

Yes.  But the only one I know of off hand is behind a mod wall.  But there is a preview image of the core 30 linked in at least 3 locations in this thread, somewhere.

Maybe?  We don't know what you've seen so far, so we couldn't say.

 

Give me about an hour and I'll have all the pics you could ever want. :D

Granite26 & Dan - Thank you.  :)

 

I was really concerned about shipping cost to UK but after discussing the costs with the boss ('She who must be obeyed') we (She) set a budget and said get on with it!   ::D:

 

Waiting, now I just hope I don't go too far over budget.   ^_^

 

Bilbo, They consolidate as much as they can. When the pledge manager comes out, you can get a good idea of your stuff will go over the limit to need a second box. They're pretty good about gauging that.

 

Edit: I'm too slow to respond here. I better go take a shower and wake up before this thing gets rolling.

@Bilbo

And don't forget the customs and tax.  My Bones 2 tax was over £100 (checks over shoulder that the Domestic Authority isn't watching).

Well worth it though.

Nakos - That is brilliant news.  Thank you.

 

(Of course I will cite you all as a defence in the divorce proceedings!  :)  )

Yeah, this is the first core set where I am not super thrilled, but only because I happen to have at least 1, if not 2-3 of all of them, since a ton (20/30) of those are Warlord models (except for that new Fomorian in the middle - damn you Reaper!)

I bet that feeling will change as the core expands and we see whats in the bonus section.

Just to clarify, I meant the anticipation was worse (better) than Christmas.

This is way better than any christmas present. ever.

      Who let the dogs out (of hell)?

      Hi everyone.  Back again with some infernal pooches.
       

       
      These are the Hell hounds from the Bones 4 Fan Favorites Expansion.  They were fun and challenging.  All those glowing lava details were a pain.  I think I managed to get them to turn out alright though.  Also had fun with the lava bases.
       
      More Photos of the Hell Hounds beneath the spoiler:
       
      In all, I like these guys.  Their bases were a lot of fun and really pop from a lot of my other minis.  I'll be posting more of my infernal collection soon, but figured these were a great place to start.
       
      Which Hound turned out best?
    • By MoonglowMinis
      Hi everyone.  Got a couple of Cool Cats to show off today.
       

       
      I went back and forth for a long time on whether or not a wanted a group of matching lions, or if I wanted variety.  As a DM, I feel these would be used most often as Druidic wildshapes, familiars, or summons.  I also couldn't deny that i wanted to try some different techniques on each, so I decided to go with a Lion, a Tiger, and a Black Panther.
       
      Tiger (Reaper Bones Lion 77341)
       

       
      First up was the Tiger.  She was actually the Lioness from the Reaper Bones Lions set (77341).  Her sculpt looked like it could read as a tiger, and that was my major inspiration for wanting to paint each of them differently.  I used a lot of references images on her and the subsequent cats as well.  Really wanted to get the coloration right.  I'm happy I did, because my instinct was to use more orange tones, but in actuality, tigers have more of a warm brown color.  I used red-hair colors to bring out the highlights.  The stripes weren't as difficult as I was expecting.  I just used my reference photos as a guide and did my best.  I do worry that people will misinterpret the nose stripes as poorly-drawn whiskers though.  She also looks a little dopy head-on but I promise that that's the sculpt.

      Lion (Reaper Bones Lions 77341)

       
      Next up is the other half of the Lion set.  This guy was always destined to be a lion.  Once again, I'm really glad I used reference images.  Its funny how many animals we envision incorrectly.  I learned this lesson well after painting up the Bones 4 pig way too pink, even though I knew it shouldn't be that color.  I'm really pleased with my coloration on the mane.  The only dry brushing on this guy is the rock base.  Time consuming but worth the result.  I think the muscle highlights look pretty natural.

      Black Panther (Legend of Drizzt Board Game - Guenhwyvar)

       
      And finally we have the Black Panther.
       
      Fun Fact:
      Did you know that there is no such animal as a Black Panther?  It is just a nickname for melanistic variants of any Panthera species, specifically Leopards and Jaguars.
       
      This model is from The Legend of Drizzt Board Game by Wizards of the Coast.  I have not read a single Drizzt Do'Urden book, but I believe the black panther, Guenhwyvar, is the ranger's companion animal.  Anyways, that was influence enough to paint her up in that style.  I believe I used mostly Black Jaguars as inspiration, though the markings became less important than getting the highlight colors right.  I ended up using Reaper's Dark Elf Skin colors to highlight the black, which is amusing considering Drizzt's race.  I added some mottled spotting afterwards, trying to imply the pattern more than paint each individual spot.  I think I managed to imply muscle, fur, and spots without losing the dark shade of black I wanted.  Pretty happy, especially since this sculpt was my least favorite of the bunch.

      QUESTION TIME
      Which of the three is your favorite?
       
      What animals do you use most often in your games?
       
      Do you have a favorite animal you like to see painted in miniatures?

      How's it going everyone?  Got a handful of baddies to show off today.  Painted these a few months ago and still pretty proud of them.  They're a mix of the Brigands from the Bones 4 Core, and the Bandits from Bones 3: Stoneskull Expansion.

      Painted them up to match.  They'll work great as bandits, thugs, mercenaries, or militia men.  Very versatile figures.  They were also a great opportunity for me to practice my face-work.
       
      Brigands (3) 77707

      I'm assuming the upcoming bones "Brigands" are in fact these three.  Lovely little models.  I'm a big fan of the slightly chunkier bones models that have been coming out lately.  They tend to have larger surface areas and better-defined edges.  They also tend to have less clutter.  This makes for an easier, cleaner paint job in my opinion.
      More Photos below the Spoiler:
       
      Bandits 77507,77508,77509,77510

      These four are from the Bones 3 Stoneskull Expansion.  I've had them sitting around for awhile, but decided to paint them up with the Brigands.  They have similar enough designs to fit together.  In general, I like their design less, but once I painted them up that didn't matter.  Perfectly serviceable mooks!

      Who's your favorite of the bunch?  I'm partial to the Executioner myself, with the Bandit Bully taking a close second.

      I have done about 15 minis over the past year (starting with the Learn to Paint kit), after taking a 30+ year break from painting lead with Testors enamel. Each one I try to learn or improve one technique. This one I focused on pose & basing (took a little surgery to get rid of the pudding base and shape all the claws). The 'rock' is a chunk of bark. Any comments, critiques, questions or suggestions are welcome. Between this forum and YouTube, I am amazed on the knowledge and information available, in an overall great community. Getting ready for Bones V delivery!

      The last of my player characters I painted up for Frostrun is Ophelia Pokitz, a young halfling with sticky fingers.  They're represented here by Bailey Silverbell.
       
      Ophelia was a fun mini as well.  Was my first time painting a humanoid with large facial features, which made it a lot easier to bring definition to the nose, lips, and eyes.  I think I even hit the cheeks with a bit of blush.  I also had fun trying to make their cloak look like it was made of fur.  The result is acceptable, but might also just look snow covered.  You can be the judge.  I also enjoyed painting a rogue that was both colorful, but subdued.  The dark greens and magentas add some much needed life to the otherwise dark mini, in my opinion.
       

       
      More Photos beneath the spoiler:
       
      Ophelia Pokitz is what you would call a troubled teen.  Orphaned at a young age, Ophelia spent much of their childhood passing from orphanage to orphanage, always finding a way to get kicked out.  They eventually left the system and struck out on their own, traveling to some of the larger cities in search of a better life.  Over the years, Ophelia has learned to use their small size and tiny hands to "reposes" any valuables that aren't bolted down.  This habit has put them on a wanted list in many towns across the countryside.  Pushed further north, Ophelia has found themselves in the town of Harpy's Hearth.  Ignorant of their southern reputation, and full of gold-carrying adventurers, this could be a great place for Ophelia to catch a break and line their own pockets.  It could also be a great place to find a new family.  If they can survive the darkness to come.
