Bones Kickstarter #3 Discussion

The kobolds look like computer generated images, meaning they haven't actually been sculpted yet.

I thought the computer renders are digital sculpts that will get 3D printed. Is that not the case? Is someone going to actually sit down and sculpt those out of greenstuff?

 

Edit: actually, I just read that Bobby Jackson has switched over almost entirely to doing digital sculpts in Zbrush that get 3D printed. So yeah, the kobolds are done, and I think the update said kobolds and goblins are Bobby Jackson's.

 

 

Yep, Bobby Jackson, Gene Van Horne, and Chris Lewis now sculpt only (or primarily) in Z-Brush.

 

Julie Guthrie, Bob Riddolfi, Jason Wiebe, Tre Manor, Kevin Williams, Matt Gubster, and myself still work mostly in putty, at least as of RCon 2015.  Of these, I know that at least a few of them are looking into Z-Brush and/or are trying to learn it (Tre and Jason have been posting about it a lot on FB).

I like a lot of the mythos expansion so far. It's not as much of a 'must have' for me as Stoneskull, but it is pretty cool.

 

Given that, and allowing for the fact that I am holding a little back for a 5-headed dragon at the end of the campaign, I think I am now pretty close to my limit for this one. Some stuff will just have to wait for retail.

 

I am aiming to keep my pledge to around 2/3 of my KS2 pledge.

My only goal is to spend less than I spent in Bones 2, so <$458...I'm pledged at $400 right now, and in the pledge manager, I had $301, but I think there are a couple more things I want to select when it comes back up.

Pledge Manager is up and rolling again.  Hope that helps keep the pledges rolling in.  Is it my imagination, or has it been slower today than most of the weekend?

 

The price change to Shubby is unfortunate, but not unsurprising. It seemed like just a bit too good of a deal for $10.00.

So, Shub-Niggurath is actually a $15 add-on. I thought $10 seemed a little cheap for how big she (it?) looks in the image. I thought maybe Reaper was continuing the trend of having a 10 Cthulu mythos mini in every Kickstarter, which began with the Big C himself in Bones I.

 

Anyway, I'm actually excited that the correct price is $15 because it just means that Shubs is more likely to be as awesomely huge and epic as she is in the image!

That's the way I feel about many Bones add ons I got in 1&2 and how greatly I beat myself up for NOT getting multiples of many at the time...

Apparently you have to be a Facebook member to see any of Tre's posts. ::(:

 

I think you actually have to be not only a FB member but also his friend on FB.

$15?  Am I looking at the wrong thing because I still see $10 for Shubniggurath.

Apparently, Kickstarter won't let them change the update graphics after they've been posted.

 

The price on the Campaign Page is $15. I suspect Kickstarter will not let Creators edit Updates, however.

      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."
