Bones Kickstarter #3 Discussion

Recommended Posts

Aaaannnd there goes the referral bonus that will be on my check Friday.  oof.

Better to know where the money is going than have it burning a hole in your pocket.

 

 

Also, please consider the following:

If Reaper was willing to reveal expansion 3, Tianot and the great worm all 3+ days before the end, what must they be saving for the last few hours? :blink:

Maybe they are going Best Foot Forward. This way the last hours of the campaign don't have to be ultra frantic with many folks having already spent their paychecks..

Oooh! Tianot. But $60... Oh, who am I kidding? I spent $60 on the WoTC prepaint in November. I'm definitely picking one up. One can never have too many suspiciously-specific-five-headed-dragons!

I'm currently only into the core set add ons for $47 so its still not worth it to add the other $53 for a bunch of minis i don't want or have room to store.. but we'll see how the end goes.. right now the weapons of virtue might be my only 2x add on from the core..

Impression I got, pretty much. Campaign looking a bit like it needed some drivers to hit those numbers.

 

Either way, I think it'll be super-effective.

Gah, I am now at 533, and I am not even getting all I want!

Yeah... recalculated my pledge with the new expansions and add ons, and while I wasn't going to get the Mystic Circle, at this point it's in the noise of how much I'm pledging. Back into the cart it goes.

 

And to take the sting off that, I bought more spaceships on eBay. What? I had some eBay bucks... and sure, it wasn't enough to cover the cost... still... spaceship. And more minis.

 

I should have about 20 now.

I just got back from the movies, so wa......

 

Oh wow, lotsa good stuff. fortunately I still have some wiggle room on my pledge, but any more awesome and I'll be in pain.

 

I'll take the reveals in order.

Graveyard expansion- so far looks solid, I've already moved it to my get it list.

Hobgobadon- Finally, some hobgoblin loven. The concept stretch are nice, I can't wait to see the final miniatures. Once this is over I'll have a hard time resisting adding two or three sets to my order.

Goremaw- okay so we knew this was coming, but that's a beautiful sculpt. A definite gimme

Not Tiamat- worth one George Dekay 'Oh my!' On one hand I want it, but on the other I want it. if anything can break my budget it'd be this.

 

 

Gah, I am now at 533, and I am not even getting all I want!

I feel your pain.

Core is currently at 129 minis (w/o the weapons or bases) – 77 cents per mini. 

- Most Smaller minis go for: $1.99 - $2.29 (62% - 67% off) ~23 smaller minis so far in core 

- Most medium sized character minis go for $2.29 - $2.79 (67%-73% discount) 84 currently

- Most Large minis go for: $3.29 - $6.99 (77%-89% discount) ~ 22 ≥Large minis in core 

- 25 one inch bases are $4.99, x2 (we get ~50) is $9.98 which people are getting for free 

- 10 two inch bases are $4.99 x2 (we get ~20) is $9.98 again for free. 

- The weapon sprues in metal cost ~$8.99 (but guessing from the familiars and rats would be Between $1.99 - $3.99 in Bones) again, x3 ($6-$12) for free. 

Remember in metal all these things would be more expensive. But Bones Retail Value rough estimation w/ the 129 minis currently in the core, plus bases and weapons is ~ $404.

- And when Hobgobageddon unlocks: 133 minis – 75 cents a mini + an additional weapon sprue

But each person needs to find their own value in this. :)

Expansion I : 35 minis @ 1.42 each 

13 small

11 med 

10 large 

1 huge @12-20$ retail

Well, if there is a Dire-gazebo (completely made up and not even hinted by Reaper), it should fit within Bonehenge.  It's what's been summoned.

 

As a comment on technology, looking at Goremaw, look at all those undercuts.  I'm impressed that the bones casting process allows such detail.  I can't imagine that being castable in metal in a mold that you could use more than once.

 

Bravo, Reaper.  Bravo.
