Bones Kickstarter #3 Discussion

Recommended Posts

DMing is very different from a kickstarter, considering budgeting also matters.  Easier for many people to know earlier what costs they may need to account for.  For example, if i know now i need to get $200 for this, that's fine; i may be able to sell some stuff before the end of teh campaign.  But if i find that out with a few days left, that's a bit annoying.

It's clearly not as simple as I laid out, if you want to do a full comparison. But for the sake of explaining the requirement of anticipation, I feel that my comparison was accurate.

 

If we really wanted to explain why DMing and running a KS are two very different things, we can get in a very long discussion with some terrible details.

 

And, further to that, my point was not to say that the anticipation is the only thing why they do not release too many stretch goals at a time. It's a factor though.

i can agree on teh anticipation thing, but as i find more expenses in real life that need to be dealt with, knowing as much info ahead of time is alot more useful to my wife and i than worrying about excitement over some plastic figures :)

 

it seems the campaign is moving slower than b1 and 2..but maybe i just dont remember them as well...

Bones 2 had a bigger initial push and fairly empty middle, but the kicktraq for Bones 1 shows  a single upward curve the entire time.

 

The attempt this time is to spread out that initial push into the middle doldrums and keep people pledging/upping the pledge the entire time.

Ideally, something like tiamat would be, standing on all fours, 2-3 ft tall IMHO.  considering she's a god that can alter size (3.XE divine rules), etc she should be as epic as possible :)

 

and it would just look awesome.

 

Kinda like the Forgeworld Warlord Titan which i think is 2 ft tall? (althoguh artwork makes it appear like it should be 4-6 ft tall like the ones GW has in their large battle scenes at Gamesday UK).

...not big enough???

 

 there was a prepainted collosal red dragon put out as part of the DDM line some years back.  pictures can be found via google  one site lists it at about 16 inches tall and it is sitting on its backside reared up and breathing fire at thr ground.  overall size is hard to compare between pictures, but I think this one is bigger at lerast in the body.

I believe that for the scope of this project, the size you are asking for is beyond the realm of possibility. We are only beginning to experiment with larger figures than were possible in metal, and are doing so gradually (since we are risk-averse). Perhaps in the future we will comfortable with such a model, but for this project I will say No.

      Goblins!
      So awhile back I was horrified to discover that some old un-finished minis had sprouted a strange orange mold. I gave them a deep clean and seemed to have solved the issue (spoiler: I did not and it's affecting nearly all my minis... but that's a problem for another time).

      As a reward for enduring the cleaning, these goblins deserved to finally get painted.

       
      Goblin Command (77349)
      First up are these two baddies from one of the Bones 2 expansion sets.

       These guys, being earlier bones, are a bit on the rough side, and definitely out-of-scale with the others. But that does help them stand out a bit.

      Goblin Warriors (77444)
      Next up, we have our "heavy hitters" from Bones 3.

       
      I like these sculpts a lot better. There's a uniformity in the face structure, while still having individuality between models.

      Goblin Skirmishers (77445)
      The final batch of wimpier goblins from Bones 3.

      These guys are the mookiest of mooks. Poorly armed, and poorly armored. These are the guys that get sent in first to soak up some arrows.

      It's nice to finally have some painted goblins. Though my bag full of 50+ more unpainted goblins still taunts me.  I have plans to paint them in a few different shades from the yellow-green used here, to a fleshy yellow-tan, to a pale fleshy-grey.  Hopefully that'll break up the duplicates and add some variety.  But that's a future project.
       
      After painting all these guys up I am tempted to finish the set with the Goblin Honor Guard.  They're the only ones I don't have. I can't see myself getting much use out of them, as they're a bit more situational or decorative than practical. But my completionist brain says I need them.

      Reaper has so many incredible and different goblin sculpts.  Which ones are your favorites?

      And a third NPC - his day job is boatswain, so I wanted the armor to not be full plate.... he's currently helping the party do a fetch quest for the captain. I'm pretty satisfied with what I got out for what I put in - but I do notice I seem to have forgotten his eyebrows!

      From Bones 3: Gug

      "It was a paw, fully two feet and a half across, and equipped with formidable talons. After it came another paw, and after that a great black-furred arm to which both of the paws were attached by short forearms. Then two pink eyes shone, and the head of the awakened gug sentry, large as a barrel, wabbled into view. The eyes jutted two inches from each side, shaded by bony protuberances overgrown with coarse hairs. But the head was chiefly terrible because of the mouth. That mouth had great yellow fangs and ran from the top to the bottom of the head, opening vertically instead of horizontally."
