Bones Kickstarter #3 Discussion

Recommended Posts

I have to say that, regardless of the final total, Reaper has done an impressive job keeping things humming through the middle of the campaign, especially on the weekends thus far. It feels (to me) like much smoother progress than the middle of Bones II.

Mythos expansion isn't grabbing me so far, I think I'll pick up the sacrificial altar and cultists at retail.  Waiting on Tianot, Female frost giant, the ginormous purple worm and hopefully Stormwing to drop.  :)

Trooth. I kept telling people who were negative during the first three days of the Kickstarter that Reaper's plan for stretch goals would pay off in a big way. I'm soooooo happy Reaper didn't make a liar out of me. It seemed like a terrific idea. I'm not sure why so many people were upset that we didn't unlock loads of stretch goals by day two when Reaper repeatedly said we would be getting plenty more during the middle. It's working great.  :lol:

I threw a Dollar at it.

 

 

I know what ya'll are thinking, but I can't add more right now.......I only have a little less than $3 on my card. :down:

 

 

But how many of you can say that you put just over a third of your total electronic cashy money-ness into the Kickstarter?????

My completely off-the-wall guess on Expansion 3 is that it will be a female monster theme.  Frost giantess as a lead-in with female goblins, female kobolds, female orcs.

 

This is probably not the case, but I think it would be pretty cool.

I'd totally be in for that.

This is pretty much exactly where I'm at.  And trimming back from "Buy one of every dragon" which was my initial plan.  I have a cap for what I wanted to pledge which I haven't hit yet though, so some wiggle room here and there.

 

I know it's too late to suggest a model for this KS, but maybe something they could whip together easily at a moderately low sculpting cost would be... a sprue of open/grasping left and right hands to use with those weapons.

 

If they use the female frost giant to try to force into $50 for an expansion and don't pack a lot of other value in there I'll be disappointed (and probably not getting her until retail then.)

"Pretty" cool?

 

No. Really cool. :lol:

 

Though I give pretty much zero stuffs about the smaller female monsters. Eh. Anyway.

 

 

 

I guess sci-fi is probably the safest bet, though.

I hope not.

 

Frost giantess was one of my favorite figures & I'd hate to not get that one due to not wanting to go all in on the expansion she was in.

 

I can see an all female expansion thou, seems to be all the rage these days.

When you put it that way, it would indeed be a bummer to see something that's (by all appearances) so incredibly in demand drop in an expansion, get trapped with much less-popular stuff. Seeing how I (personally) feel regarding the cultists and altar's inclusion in 2 . . . yeah. I know some heads might explode if that happened with the frost giantess. :lol:

      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."

      Obviously, lycanthropy has spread too far...and this is a reminder that Reaper are from Texas, where armadillos are native and as I understand it, seen as pests. I would really like to know how the sales figures for this model compares to other lycanthropes.

      I have a series of vignette's I'm planning that all feature ogres in amusing scenes with townsfolk. The first of this series is here.
      With this one I imagined the young milk maid is taking her boyfriend home to meet the parents for the first time. The boyfriend, wanting to put on a good first impression has worn his best striped collar and matching belt, as well as brought his best skulls.
      He's a bit nervous so she's trying to reassure him. "Don't worry... Mom is going to love you."
      She doesn't say anything about dad, though...
      Any critique and criticism is always welcome.
