So, based on the 24-hour lookback from the 0900-1000 report, that's $173,045 in the last day.  That's $7,210 per hour.  If we apply that to the remaining hours (55), that's another $396,561 by the end of the campaign, which would bring us up to $2,196,038 at the end.  Of course, that doesn't take into account the hockey-stick effect.  I don't think we need to worry too much about making it to Tianot.  I expect us to end with at least 2.5 million, if not higher.

 

I'm still thinking it will push 3 mil.

 

 

My instincts point more towards 2.3-2.4m, but Reaper has consistently proven me wrong throughout the campaign, so absolutely nobody should pay the slightest attention to my numbers.

 

It's possible that they are better at this Kickstarter thing than I am. :ph34r:

 

 

I completely underestimated them the last two KS's.  Not this time.  I'm sticking at 3 mil.  I may be wrong, but I don't think it is a wild hope either.

 

 

I think would push it would be Flying Camels with Gatling guns!!!  :rock:  ::P:

 

 

Well...I am still working on the camel (the side not seen in the photo), so possibilities exist, but wings are not currently on my list of possible gear additions. (Right now I am working on a water jar and small chest for the other side.)

 

 

 

Oh I know what I'm going after in the Boneyard next year  :devil:

It looks like we have ourselves a pretty well balanced adventuring party.

 

I love the fact the dwarven king was already a mini before he got his throne. (Heck even a cover shot as he is on Warlord 2)

With the Stormwing unlock approaching, I challenge anybody mad enough to make a massive Dragon diorama, with Cinder, Deathsleet, Ebonwrath, Stormwing, and Blight Fang all painted up as the 5 classic chromatics, and positioned around a rocky crag, leading up to Ma'aldrakar perched at the top.

 

It would be supremely impressive, if you pull it off!

 

This sounds like a s Siri project for RCon 2017.

:wow: that'd....be a very big diorama....

 

And while i'll have all those dragons, I painted mine different colors (all chromatic still, but for example my CInder is white and my Deathsleet is red )

That wasn't a "No."

 

I'm sure we could chip in to get you new ones of the ones you already painted. They are Bones after all. Plus, I always drive through OK City on my way to RCon and would be more than willing to help transport it and such.  :devil:

 

 

 

Or....

 

We do it cooperatively.  Siri does the big guy while 5 of us each does one of the other dragons.  Then we assemble it on Thursday at the Con.

Story:

 

 

I wrote out the opening to the Story for the maps. 

This story Ends at precisely the moment the first KS map begins.

 

It's awful, being that I am not a great writer, but I had fun and I hope you do too.

 

 

THE SEARCH FOR MR. BONES

It had been a long night. As the sun began to rise to the east, across the Forlorn Mountains at the edge of the world, Mrs. Bones locked the front door to the manor and hung her golden sword over the mantle. Mr. Bones propped his scythe against the wall and kicked off his boots. The graveyard was silent now, and the ferry service was closed for the day. After sunset the spirits would need to be quieted again and Mrs. Bones would go on patrol, and Mr. Bones would go to work for Mr. Charon but for now, they could rest in each other’s arms.

 

Mr. Bones pulled the curtain closed just as the first rays of the morning sun hit the opposite wall, and he crawled into bed beside his beloved Ulna. Dim, warm light from the gaps in the drapes filled the room as they drifted off to sleep, cold beneath their scarlet covers. The lights in their eyes dimmed, and the only sounds to be heard were the occasional rattle of their gentle breathing. Hours passed.

 

A dark shadow passed over the bed, blotting out all light. A great din erupted as the great window shattered, the glass ripping the heavy scarlet damask curtains into tatters. Shards of glass and crimson cloth filled the air and the shadow covered the bed in darkness that was palpable, not just blocking the light but absorbing it. Ulna jumped up, searching the chaos to find her husband, but she could see nothing in the blackness, feeling only the glass against her cheekbones and something soft drifting through the air.

 

The shadow receded and as light returned Ulna tried to make sense of the scene. Glass was everywhere, mixed with bright red streaks, and tufts of fluff floated through the air. The sun bathed the room in intense hot light, overwhelming her. The bed was ripped asunder. Giant rends streaked through the black-swan-down filled mattress, black streaks through rivers of crimson.

 

What she could not see was her dear Vomer. Her eyes flared red as she reached into her bed stand to grab a strength potion. Taking a quick second to grab her cloak to protect her from the hateful sun and a small pack, she ran down the hall to follow the trail of the thing that stole her husband. She knew she’d need her weapons, so she couldn’t leap foolishly out the window after them. She ran down the hall, emerging into a disused chamber with empty bookshelves and discarded bones - they’d always wanted to make a child, but their careers kept them both pretty busy.

 

An armored warrior burst through the doorway, brandishing a laughably small knife. For over two centuries Ulna had patrolled the cemetery at World’s Edge, this human warrior was no match. Ulna stopped, adjusted her cloak, and waved the soldier on. He paused briefly, not expecting his target to be so calm, but seeing she was unarmed, he grew emboldened. He lunged towards her, thrusting his dagger towards her grinning face. She extended her left leg, sweeping his ankle out from under him. As he hit the ground, she dropped, planting her knee across the back of his neck. She reached out and twisted the knife from his hand, flipped it across her palm, and thrust it into his back.

 

He did not scream or twitch. His head twisted around, and as he spoke his lips and eyes turned black. “You’ll never defeat us all. You will fall before us, and your power will be ours. Vomer Bones is already lost. You have already lost.†The words dissolved into unintelligible burbles and bubbles as the soldier dissolved into a gooey pool of black. That was no human, but whatever it was was the same dark shadow-stuff that had invaded their room and stolen her husband.

 

Standing, Mrs. Bones held the new dagger before her, straightened her shirt, and blew her bangs out of her eyes. The soldier could not have been more wrong. She would not lose...

 

Too many images in this post. Maps 1-10 are now only available in older posts.

Looks like we'll be using quite a few items to make it into the next map!

We might be willing to cut you some slack on the color choices, if you actually do it. </instigator>

I think we can pretty much safely assume there will be no non-KS bones releases, because of the massive costs of mouldmaking.

Which is why they go to KS with the Bones in the first place.

 

But they might make a "thank you" assortment (like in KS2)  with some/most/all of the figures slated for later strech goals and sneak them into this KS that way.

 

I was hoping that the Alchemist and Druid from the Stoneskull expansion might make it into a "thank you" add-on.

It is in Reaper's long-term interests to be able to make new Bones models without Kickstarters and they will work towards that goal. They have their own plastic machine and are working towards it. Kickstarter, however, is very well designed to support production of Bones.
