Bones Kickstarter #3 Discussion

Recommended Posts

I have a question - How will the bones from the kickstarter be packaged? Will they be in packaging like current Bones are sold in stores? The reason I ask is because I like to save the tops of the packages, with the names and numbers, so that later I know what I've got.

Most of the KS Bones come in plastic bags, grouped together, not individually marked.  Certain large models come in their own boxes.  Determining if you received everything you ordered is a non-trivial exercise, but kind of fun.

Small request for Talae/David: Would it be possible to have one more average calculation added? Averages based on the last 24 hour period.

 

I love seeing the "avg hours until funded" and such, but as you state yourself, the wee hours of the day are a little skewed. And not just that, certain time frames will be more susceptible to an increase/decrease in backers or funds. I think, being not as mathemagically endowed, that the last 24 hour window would produce a good number.

Kicktraq is the tool you're looking for.

 

It gives us daily results and averages. Though the extrapolated trends don't really work for the way Reaper plans the end of the pledge period.

 

 

Kicktraq isn't bad, but it isn't good. The spreadsheet isn't really easily set up for tracking things on a 24 hour basis, but with a little tweaking, I've got this:

No, the labor to package them into blister cards would require the KS Prices to be higher.

Packaging rewards into blisters would also add on quite a delay in fulfillment given that they have been slowly packaging the retail stock from Bones 2 over the last few months.  I really don't want to wait any more than I have!  :)  If you just want an ID tag to keep track of what's what, usually someone makes a spreadsheet for inventory purposes, if you printed a couple of hard copies then you could cut out the name & sku to store with them. 

 

Speaking of which, I really need to set up a miniature storage system, my Bones 1 & 2 goodies are sort of in a giant heap.

And would probably kill everyone in shipping fees.  *ducks*

Canadutchian's asking for something slightly different than what Kicktraq offers. There's no magic that happens at 0:00 or 10:00 or any particular time since the Kickstarter is global. A 24-hour trailing average is going to be more relevant than an average that resets to zero every day.

Does anybody know if there's any place that I can get a miniature guitar sized for the Kaiju Titan?  The more that I look at him, the more I think that he looks like he's performing at a heavy metal concert.

I was originally thinking of painting him like a Quetzal, but now I'm considering more of a black motif, with something looking like facepaint on the skull.

Mierce has a large miniature that wields a guitar. It's from their BaneLords line, called Belech, Axeman of Omens. With most of their older minis, you can order components (rather than the entire mini). I don't currently see that option in this particular case, but maybe you could inquire.

1) I don't really know if the size would be right.

2) It's Mierce resin, so it might cost more than you'd like, especially considering shipping (depending on where you're located).

 

Sorry, that's all I've got.

We're already on the case (in the silliness thread).

      Here is all that I finished in March - one undead archer - the bowman from Bones 3 undying heros. Paining a giant took the rest of my time... In any case, he was kind of a quick diversion, just so I could get the satisfaction of a finished mini - always can use more undead archers!

      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!
