Bones Kickstarter #3 Discussion

Recommended Posts

Welp. Just.. *throws wallet at Reaper* Just give me /all the things/, and we're good..

I /like/ this new expansion. Even if I have to tweak the gate if I want it to swing, I still like it. I really, really need one. And as much fencing as I am allowed to scrounge. ^^;

 

 .. chibis? ALL the chibis? ... That would be icing. >.>

 

On painting good metallics - depends what effect I want. I tend to slap a layer of flat black on anything silver or steel, and not infrequently, on anything gold/bronze/copper as well. It's efficient, and it works. 

If I'm feeling especially frisky, THEN I go digging in the colour bin for alternatives, especially if I want a specific look - tarnish, patina, or so. I have a really nifty 'dried blood' wash that I love the heck out of for bloody swords or other types of spatter. ^^

Finally gave in and backed it. Hobgoblins and Mythos investagators managed to weaken my resolve.

 

I'm away from the computor for the next few days - looking forward to see what surprizes are unlocked in the last mad run to the finish.

Would be nice to see it within the hour...

Before I lose cell phone signal for a week would be awesome. ::D:

Hi All

 

I am thinking of joining the Bones III Kickstarter - time is short! I am thinking of pledging a total of $110

 

What experience with import tax and VAT have previous UK backers had please?

 

TIA

 

Chris

While you might get lucky and the shipment gets through customs without being spotted you can't count on it especially with a 'big box' like a bones core set (I've been charged both times)

 

so be prepared to pay your customs fees with a smile

 

 

expect to pay VAT of 20% on the (declared value + shipping cost)

 

plus a collection fee to whatever shipper is used, if it's like last time it will be RM who will charge £8 for collecting the cash

 

 

as long as the declared value is below £135 you won't need to worry about import duty... I've never had to pay any (which is complicated... Depending what customs classifies them as probably 0%, but worst case I can find is about 5%)

 

 

so $110 = £71 (they'll use whatever the exchange rate is on the day the package arrives)

 

shipping $50 = £32 (check the pledge calculator for your exact figure, I've assumed you're getting the core set plus a couple of small bits

 

VAT = £20.60

collection fee =£8

 

total spend = £131.60

The numbers moved up faster than I expected overnight. Now that U.S. backers are waking up, hopefully we will get to the next goal this morning.

Yep, Its Friday moring and almost the end of the campaign, I am watching and the numbers are starting to tick up already this morning.... What does rReaper have instore for us over the next 24 plus hours?

 

I really can't wait to  see what else is coming.  Im really hoping for the female Frost Giant, Mr and Mrs Bones and the Halfling farmers and cart and animals that were previewed in the RCON showcase pictures.

I don't understand this "not want the graveyard" malarky. It's amazing, and if I weren't already dangerously close to my hard limit already, I would double down on it.

 

I may not get the graveyard expansion, but lack of wanting is not the issue. 

graveyard + 1 set of extra fencing is what I actually want. 

I cant believe no one has mentioned the most obvious thing for the last unlock: plain tombstones.   

 

and an undead war mammoth. (of course)

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.

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.

 

 

well, yes. I actually wrote "...no non-KS bones releases in the forseeable future", but I had to write that comment twice becasue of not being logged in on my ipad (argh!), and it slipped my mind the second time.

 

The posts that I commented on here were all about making Bones that are prepared for this KS but does not fund. I do fully expect Reaper to make their own bones moulds without KS at some point, but I do not expect that to happen this year, probably not even next year, at least not until KS3 in done with. And I actually would expect a KS4 to happen first as well.

      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.

      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.
