Bones Kickstarter #3 Discussion


Recommended Posts

The thing with the scifi minis, or cthulhu minis, or what have you is there was a lot of awesome presented in this kickstarter. I found myself reevaluating what I want with every update. In Kickstarter 2 the minis I have gotten the most use out of were the bugbears and gnolls, in KS 1 it was the pathfinder goblins.


So with that  in mind, the minion monsters are my primary focus


* Lizardmen - I thing the 16 in the core is enough. I plan on using these a lot.

* Orcs- Who can ever have too many orcs

* Ogres - I love ogres. Planning on 2 extra sets (9 ogres total) plus the Ogre Command

* Hobgoblins - These look great... Planing on 5 sets... 20 hobgoblins. Plus the Hobgoblin archer female looks like a fun character to play

* Frost giants- 2 sets plus King and Queen and the fire giant will be a frost giant as well

* Crusaders- I was all about these guys but am not sure now. Maybe 2 sets... Evil knights or somesuch

* Corsairs- originally planning on trying to make them steampunky steam armor... Not sure now..


Of course I am still getting at least 2 dragons.. The first one and the bronze one...

Plus another set of Pretty deadly and Eastern set... These will go with the hobgoblin warband...


I really want Dagon, but I want the deepones to go with him, but don't want expansion 2... I also really like the dwarf on pony, but am not interested in the rest of the set. I will probably pony up $10 for 10 more Sofies like I did in Bones 2...


That's all I have so far, but If I get more money to throw at this, I will still have to debate... Expansion 1 or 3, or more orc, hobgoblins or ogres...

Finally back home.  Had some issues with traffic getting out of the area and some bad decisions on alternate ways to go.


Had a blast with my daughter, brother-in-law, and niece at Reaper HQ.  While we waited for the final countdown I let them all dig through the Bone II Core Set I won and decide what each of them wanted.


The only downside was I had a hard time keeping up with the KS and goals from my phone.  Needed to have something said over the speakers to let everyone know how things were going.


Great job Reaper on another awesome KS campaign! I am looking forward to the goodies in about a year or so,

Counting things:

core: 132 medium or small, + 7 large figures, + 4 weapon sets.

Expansion 1, 26 m/s  + 12 large 


anyone have a total for 1 of everything? 

I'm grabbing one of everything, extras of some. First Bones Kickstarter and I've gone a little crazy.

This has been fun! What a wild ride! I would say that my day 1 prediction worked out pretty close to accurate ($69,435 short of what I said). Wish I could have been around for the end of the festivities!


Here is a big dump of links that I gathered over the course of the campaign, in case anyone wants to compile them for something:

Thanks to Reaper for putting on another great KS. They produce so many great sculpts and, with Bones, we can get more minis for the $.


3 Bones KSs and I always buy multiple core sets, an expansion set, all the paints, giants and a bunch of dragons/big creatures... oh ya... and mouslings. 


The core sets are such a good deal. I always want multiples of about third of the core sets so it's worthwhile for me to buy a complete extra set imo.

I should have just done the backing on the 1st day but it was the Frost Giants that did it for me. Frost Giants and Yeti, now I just need to carve the Glacial Rift out of Styrofoam. I don't use Dragons much but these look pretty good. Have to start saving now.

Well that was my first kickstarted and I must say it was enjoyable and a great deal reaper did a good job on the forums as did many supporters in helping others along. All in all very good stuff ;)

I enjoyed this KS. I think Reaper handled this one even better than the prior 2. They have clearly mastered this format. The end felt more climatic and satisfying than the second Kickstarter. The timing of final stretch goals was perfect.

Look! I made it to the end!

Cool!  Is there a prize?


Also, @Zoroaster100 I completely agree. 


Edited to add reply to Zoroaster since I failed nailed it on the multiquote.
