Right now I am in for the first paint set, the torture chamber from the core set, all dragons except Viridious, and Crusaders, and the arsenal with more pledged that is spent currently

 

I know for sure I will be getting any future dragon that appeals to me, as well as any big mouster that would be fun to paint (like that giant worm )

 

The things I want fronm the core, like the dog and donkey, I can wait for retail. My husband hasn't gamed in months and we have a surplus of PC Bones anyways so we are being rather choosy in this KS, mostly getting things I would want to paint or things he simply cannot pass up, like the torture chamber and arsenal

I like about the same percentage of the core 30 as I did in the last. Waiting to see how all the "bonus" figures stack up, because they were, imo, pretty phenomenal in 2. Doing okay so far now, but there's a ways to go before final happiness can be determined.

 

I'll be able to hit more add-ons this time, which is kind of fun. Planning for all the dragons but the diablonator, and no corsairs or mouselings or the second paint set.

 

Looking forward to the expansions and Takhisn't, too.

The core currently has to add a few more cool things to win me over.

 

Ditto. I feel like I've probably got all the PCs I'll ever need now, and really, I need things to throw at my players. Those new goblins and ogres are spot on. The crusaders will make fantastic royal guard to accompany/lead my anhurian city watch. The frost Giants... Well I just need those. Not so sure about more male archers and lady spellcasters at this point.

The biggest draw for me on the core set is probably all the lizardmen... I also second (or third or whatever) the call for red mantis assassins and Grey maidens in bones... The only reason I never bought them in metal is you need 5-10 for a good encounter and that is a bit expensive for minor villains... Even the pathfinder prepaints for the grey maidens are on the expensive side...

 

My wishlist is still the same as it was in bones 2... Khamsin army. Mounted, foot troops, special characters. I have a need for "Arabian"/middle eastern miniatures and these guys fit the bill.

Did anybody collect my clues about the Undying Lords in one place to analyze them?

 

 

I didn't see them anywhere. :down: but I did continue the discussion of what some of them meant. And then when I say the goal I was like "Oh, I get it, many eyes or no eyes!" and lol'd.

They are in a OneBoot post (maybe a couple of posts) a few pages back. Edited by ladystorm

Shame on me, my pledge is currently below average at $105. I'm enjoying the core pledge more than in the previous kickstarters, but it doesn't have enough value for me yet. Mind you, I'll have to pay a considerable shipping fee, a 60% tax on top of everything (including shipping) and Brazilian currency is weak (and it will continue to be weak in the next 2 or 3 years at least).

 

From the core, I'm going to pledge for lycantropes II, arsenal, 2 invisible heroes, torture chamber, ogres and there are 10 miniatures that I intend to buy at retail from the initial 54, including one of which lizardmen. I'm also in for Marthrangul, frost giants and undying lords. I hope by the end of the campaign I will be convinced to back the core plus extras and would be nice if the mystic circle had some more details on the final sculpt.

 

By the way, Reaper is doing a great job on this campaign with 1 or 2 stretch goals reveal a day as "promised"!

Im increasing my pledge as it goes - I started with 100 for the core & waited until the madness settled to increase it again once the manager was up to tell me about shipping. Im currently sitting at $275 which is about $15 over what I currently want + shipping. That said I could easily spend that & more on other addons - but I have a limited budget (around $400 including shipping) & I am waiting to see what else comes. I dont want to tell myself I can have everything & then not be able to afford them because so many other awesomeness is released. My current list stands:

 
GETTING $173 + shipping
Core $100
Kyra & Lavarath (x2) $20 (we are going to mod 1 to simply be an armoured dragon with Kyra as a separate model)
Marthrangul $15
Crusaders $8
Mystic Circle $15
?? Viridius $15 (I really like this model & want it, but my husband isnt as keen on the sculpt, depending on how the budget goes & what else is available is whether I get it, right now it on the list!)
Undying Lords $8
 
EXTRAS
1x Orcs $6
1x Arsenal $4
1x? Bases $10
 
So that is how I am handling things. I like round numbers so Ive been going up in $25 increments as needed.

      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!
