Bones Kickstarter #3 Discussion

Recommended Posts

OK There it is, and I have to say, im still on the fence over the Mythos expansion.  I do like the Ogre command though.

The first four fishy smelling minis interest me, but the reaper gug isn't my cup of tea. Too blatantly freudian and awfully short for a gug. Subtlety can go a long way. Only thing this one seems to be missing to be as unsubtle as possible is a button nose.

 

Migo look interesting, though their wings look kinda thick. CAV scale shoggoth looks cool too.

 

The Female ogre reminds me of a certain Jim Henson puppet.

I was already backing the Mythos expansion, this stuff being added just sweetens the deal nicely.

 

Ogre command = awesome!

Well this is a fine how do you do. 

Reaper is making it harder for me not to pledge for both expansions, So nice job.

Unfortunately would bring me almost to the edge of my budget, and I would lose the add-on options.

 

The cultists and deep ones are the most tempting, but I think I can save money picking them up retail. 

- the next level may may require another SAN check.

 

As others have mentioned this expansion + black goat, practically writes its own campaign.

Sadly..the reality is that the cost of Tiamat might totally make me dump the Mythos expansion and a few other options depending on the number of copies of Tiamat I can afford.

I really like how different sculptors and artists interpret the mythos. Writers usually only alluded to how the monsters look, despite a seeming standardization of their appearance. I find it interesting when an artist or sculptor suggests a very different look for a well-known monster.

 

And when a miniature painter decides to mod it! : http://www.lead-adventure.de/index.php?topic=56731.0

The Mythos Expansion is uniquely awesome. All those horror aliens are chomping to eat people and then spawn more horror aliens!

 

I don't know which are more enticing in the Ogre Command - the little goblin buggers or the ogre chieftans. I'm going with those crazy goblins, they look like they are having fun.

I've decided to up my pledge to JUST under what I spent last time.

right now I have leeway for about 10$, though I may adjust that a little bit.

I decided to get an extra set of goblins- so 2- (I only have Hearthstone redcaps) that gives me at least a few to throw out there (along with the standard and drums from Ogre Command)... to be fortified by kobolds etc by expansion 2 if I need a lot.

They're making it harder and harder for me . . . to actually get this expansion just for the cultists and altar. Lololol, I am just not a Mythos person.

 

Love how dat $ keep climbing, though.

Mythos I like, but not enough to pledge for it. The cultists kinda remind me of some of the TGG 2 KS stuff, which I backed, so I am all set on creepy elflike chicks. We like Lovecraft in this house, but I may wait retail just to get a few pieces.

 

The ogre command is so freaking adorable! My nephews love ogres, so I am gonna have to add $10 to my pledge for that. The female does kinda have an Augrah feel (from Dark Crystal) to her.

The mythos monsters are the figures I would use for demons in a fantasy game. Most "demon" minis are closer to what I think of as devils. I'll probably never play a mythos game and I love that expansion.

I'm sure it's already been discussed, but for the newbie like me who blew this month's gaming budget on some minis and a pledge (plus a little more), how long can I add money after the Kickstarter is over? Because yeah. This is fun. :)

As of right now the only answer we've gotten is "till we tell you the boat is on the water". What that means in practical terms is around eight or nine months, best guess.

      Greetings!
       
      I recently bought some Greenstuffworld colourshift paints & eagerly wanting to try them out, I searched through my (huge) Bones backlog for a suitably metallic mini. I grabbed the fantastically ominious Iron Golem from the Bones 4 Stoneskull Expansion & got to work.
       
      The blue areas are the colourshift paint, all the other areas are standard paints.
       
      I'm really happy with how it turned out. It's not as easy to see the effect on these pics as it is with your own eyes but you can make it out. There's no shading or highlighting on these areas apart from some silver to pick out the rivets & sharp edges on the arm plates.

      Thief : Blue Ink base + black ink to show details  (least happy) 
      Cleric : angelic ghost or spiritual weapon spell.  Yellow ink + TMM 
      Ranger: painted by minispawn.  ill take it. Makes a great ghost 
      Wizard: nulin Oil + higlights of green ink  (fav) 
      Fighter: I only painted the base. (represents an invisible PC pretty well.) 
       
      I should talk to @Doug Sundseth about this again, since he is teaching a class on it, probably today.  Not sure im happy with the set.

      Per Izzy,
      If you picked up either of the Art Books in the Bones III and IV kick-starters and would like to get them autographed, be sure to bring them with you to ReaperCon. Izzy will be signing them when time allows.
