Bones Kickstarter #3 Discussion

Recommended Posts

Oh, come on.  Hand puppets?  Hand puppets?!?!  How the heck am I supposed to say no to that?

THIS!!!!! 

 

 

Oh, come on.  Hand puppets?  Hand puppets?!?!  How the heck am I supposed to say no to that?

AND PUGS!  And that amazing self-satisfied look on the forge-priestess's face!  AND THE PONY!  IT'S SO GOOD!

 

YES!!!

 

Gotta admit, I'm not really diggin' the dwarves. Even my son, who loves dwarves more than anything, was a little underwhelmed by the set. We both really like the proud, smirky looking female, Gandwarf on the pony and the huntsman, but the rest are kind of meh. Maybe they just need a coat of paint. The king looks very nice (love the owl on his helm) but the throne area seems under designed. Something like that should be display worthy.

 

Luckily, the Pathfinder II pack is excellent, although I'm still hoping we get a Sinspawn. Those attack in groups so multiples are important. Bones makes groups happen. 

I think you're in the minority of not loving the dwarves. I love them for the fact that they are so unique. I've got plenty of hammer-wielding, heavily armored, stern faced, traditional dwarves from which to pick and choose but this set is so unique that I'm totally stricken.

The new dwarf set is not really my cup of tea either, but I am very happy to see the positive reception they are getting. I like that we are getting new and unusual miniatures to play with. They don't all have to match my taste. ::D:

Loving the dwarf set, though I do find the throne bigger that what I need, but the rest make up for it nicely.

 

Going back to Stoneskull Expansion, the thug mercenaries are growing on me. Their bald heads will be perfect to add some guild tattoos on them. Hey, the iron man golem sketch got replaced by the 3D render.

 

Also love the Ogre Command. The one thing I'm not too crazy about is the expression on the goblins. They all have the same face.

I have zero interest in the dwarves, but it is a bones KS, some people will love some stuff and not other stuff, some people will love everything.

I think someone's got a voodoo doll of my wallet.  Every time I look at it, it's got another stab in it.  Oddly, it coincides with the Stretch Goals.

I'm not terribly excited about the Dwarves, they're cool and all, but not my cup of tea...I am however very excited for the Pathfinder figures coming at that level.  Red Mantis Assassins and the Pathfinder Troll?  Heck yeah!  I think I'll be doubling up on that.

Speaking of code, does Kickstarter let you put Anchor tags in your Campagin page? I'm beginning to get scroll fatigue.

I wonder how hard it would be to mod that throne to scoot it over and add another throne with a queen on it... :rock:

 

Certainly not as difficult as if it were metal! Yay bonesium! :bday:

      The Left Hand of Darkness here is from the Bones 3 Stoneskull expansion. I painted this one at the same time as the Bones 4 female devil, as they make a fine pair.  Speaking of fine pairs, you will need to click the links to see, as the titilation offered by a shapely two inch piece of plastic might be harmful to minors.

      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.
       
       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       
       
      Thanks for looking!

      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.
