I was, at first, off put by the $60 price tag of 'Tianot' but once the size comparison of it and Dragons Don't Share 2 was posted I feel it is more than worth it!  That an I can see her going for $150+ at retail so better to get her now than later!

I think Stormwing was the last "classic" dragon we were waiting for from the Reaper catalog.  I'm very happy that it has made an appearance.

 

Unless I missed something, I think that Gauth remains un-bonesified.

 

 

There is still time...

 

(Although it's also possible that Gauth is simply too big to Bonesify with only two feet in contact with the base. To my knowledge, Reaper has never said.)

 

Correct.  And it looks like I missed T'Raukzul when looking over the classic dragons not yet in Bones.  At least, I don't see him in the store or previews.

 

I'm OK with not all of the classic dragons making it to Bones, especially if it's already likely that they'll have the too-little-contact problems seen with Deathsleet and Verocithrax.  (T'Raukzul might be OK if the tail were attached to the integrated base.)

This KS has really added a lot of variety to their Bones line.  My only hope is that some more of those great sci-fi figures from ReaerCon make it to the stage.  What I'm REALLY glad for is that we can add more money after the KS is over.  I'm in for over $400 already but don't think it is wise to add more at this time.  I have a convention this weekend and GenCon next week.  Considering how poor the exchange rate is with the USD, I think I will wait to contribute more in a few months.  I don't feel too bad since my pledge is currently more than double the average.

Ahem, Gauth and T'Raukzul. Maybe classic Kaladrax.

 

And I also realized the $CAN is not in our favor these days. Enough to make me reconsider Ma'al (heresy, I know) and its huge shipping cost.

 

Once it hits full price retail, assuming we still have free shipping to Canada, it may be cheaper to wait.

 

 

Having just upped my pledge, I am a very conscious that I can't afford to have this stuff shipped to Canada.  Same for DF stuff.   I have it all shipped to my best bud down in the US and then I practice zen like patience (sometimes up to six months) until either he visits me or I visit him. 

 

I have learned a lot about how patient I can actually be.

This is what a lot of ROW pledgers need. A friend or relative in the US, and frequent visits.

I am very interested to see the next two parts of expansion #3. Will it be terrain? Will it be that graveyard golem? Will there be fancy skeletons? How about a big bell?

 

Fascinating. 

 

Fancy skeletons? Will they have a top hat and monacle?

Well, any kind of circus could erupt on the last day.

That being said, I very much hope it passes 2 and a quarter mill. If I can't add Tianot, I won't be a happy camper.

There is also the choice of sending the package to a friendly Store near the border. You then pick it up there when it arrives. Example of that is shipping shops in Massena NY or UPS.Store close to the Border. They charge you about 5$ per box per week to keep it.

So, Kaladrax the Ginormous is $75 dollars retail. Think about how expensive Tianot is going to be. I realize that $60 seems like a lot to a lot of people, but it seems to me that it's a pretty substantial deal. I guess I better go ahead and start shopping around for a new airbrush.

For ROW pledgers, it's another ballgame.

 

Including shipping, current exchange rate, taxes/duties, Ma'al will cost me over $150CND. It is quite possible I'll get if for cheaper by paying full price during a visit to RCon.

 

Yes, that is possible. Ma'aldrakar kicks you up to a much larger box and a not inconsiderable amount of weight over just a Core Set and a few smaller add-ons. However, the more things you buy, the more likely it is that you'll end up with that bigger box with or without him.

Even if you take off the wings, he is still the same size as a football*.  and 60$ is a reasonable price for a footbal sized model.

My question is still do I need a model the size of a football? 

 

I think I will pledge for all the other stuff I want then, may add on Mal in the post campaign, when I finally make a decision.

I may also try painting just the dragon from DDS2 in 5-7 days as practice run. 

 

 

 

*American.  ROW footballs harder to compare.

It's interesting when you start getting close to the point when you need a larger box.  For example, if I just add Goremaw to my pledge, shipping goes up by $2.  If I just add Ma'aldrakar, it goes up by about $20.  If I add them both, I'm at what I assume is the level that requires a larger box and the shipping goes up by $50.

 

Sadly, this is going to mean that I won't be getting Ma'aldrakar after all.  Honestly, I doubt that he ever would have gotten painted anyhow, but if through some miracle I actually finish off my other big minis like Khanjira I'll happily pay full price for multi-headed dragon goodness.

      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!

      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.
       
      More Photos Below the Spoiler:
       
      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.
       
      More Photos Below Spoiler:
       
       
      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!
