´Torture furniture ... fences, pillars ... yeah, dungeon walls would be awesome in Bones ...

 

we know there are other options, but those are expensive and fragile....walls in Bones would be amazing

Yes, more furniture, scenery and such!!

 

Need more things like (rope) bridges, wells, sewer stuff!!! ^_^

Too slow!  *whine whine*  Reaper, you're failing at your kickstarter!  Tianot should be cheaper, we're never going to make it to that goal.  Everyone going to pull their funding at the last minute. <End facetious whining>

I keep hoping for another add on for new paints so they will have a 2016 expansion as Reaper previously did for the 2014 expansion.  IMHO a very significant portion of backers would pledge for some new paint colors regardless of what type of minis they prefer.

Oh man, fences are sweeeet. I can definitely take the discontinued GW garden of Morr off my ebay watch list.

 

if there were walls, our backer number would shoot through the sky,as people open second kickstarter accounts to pledge more than 10x.

 

I really wish the metal grave horror were making it to bones, but I very much doubt it is. I'm sure whatever is in part 3 will be awesome.

@Breegull: Funny I had been just about to buy the Garden of Morr too, or at least had been close to buying it several times, but now I will get Reaper's graveyard instead.  I think it will be more durable, and even though I will have to wait a year for it, I prefer to have my money go towards supporting this Kickstarter and unlocking more goals.

@Bathory: Thanks. I saw ReaperBryan's answer on the fences in the Kickstarter comments. That decides it for me that I'm definitely getting Expansion 3. Now I'm trying to decide whether to doubledown on that expansion or just get one. It will probably depend on the third reveal for the expansion. Either way I will get some extra fencing too.

 

 

From the Kickstarter comments, this comment by Wren was exciting to see:

I'm now at the Reaper facility, and I am blown away seeing all the fantastic work that the sculptors have been doing! And sneak peeks of art Izzy is working on.

  The problem with adding walls is it is so easy and cheap making a variety walls using the Hirst Arts molds,  So adding walls would actually make it less likely I would pledge for the expansion since I have LOTS of walls.  The fences are great since they will be a lot more sturdy than those made by casting plaster,

we've thought about Hirst arts, but I don't like how fragile they are. And how expensive. And the work that goes into making them. And then trying to store these expensive fragile things XD it just doesn't fit in with how we store our gaming items and how we play our games. Something more durable and lighter and cheaper would be useful to us. But i can understand how those who have the means and walls already wouldn't be as excited about Bones walls

This is actually why I backed the Battle Systems Fantasy terrain Kickstarter last year, which shold be shipping in the next week or so.....

      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!

      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!
