There's no way I'm going to be able to resist this. :( And I spent twice the amount on Bones 2 than what I had told myself would be a strict limit.

 

I'm already swimming in minis. What's a guy to do?

Build a deep end?

 

That's what FireElemental and I are going to be working on...

 

Maybe if we're really dedicated, we can move a Bones pledge worth of room out of miniature storage and paint them before Bones3 delivers... but I don't think it's gonna happen.

Set up a Ball Pit using Bones minis?

And do a Scrooge McDuck!

 

I wonder if wet can hype this enough to dethrone exploding kittens

Later as in days, weeks, a couple months? And what does this do to your plans for the LE KS?

Depends.  We're thinking that June 8 isn't realistic anymore, is all. Things changed from announcement to now, and we thought you should know.

 

This is not expected to affect our plans to launch a kickstarter for Legendary Encounters in the Fall noticeably.

Ok, June 9th it is!

 

I'm not happy, but I like Reaper, so you can have your extra day.

 

 

:devil:

 

Seems fair and reasonable to me.

Paint faster.

I really hope they either redo the gauth sculpt like they did with kaladrax or at least just put the normal scupt into bones I have the metal version but like him so much I wouldnt mind a second

Gauth has eluded my clutches for far too long.

If we help Reaper on social media sites and advertise this, possibly. But we don't have a starting date anymore. On the other hand...5 headed dragon!

I'm hoping for a redo. Original Gauth had too much bipedal influence in posture and body structure, IMHO. Maybe it could work for a mini for Borys of Ebe or some other human turned dragon, but i generally prefer more quadrupedal looking than Gauth. Which is why I've been VERY happy with most of Reaper's Bones Dragons.

      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....

      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 🙂
