Reaper Bones 3: Post-Kickstarter Discussion

For those that have started painting on this set, how is the paint going on? Has the formula change effected how you need to (or specifically avoid) thinking your paints for a base coat? I have painted a couple nonKickstarter bones from a couple Christmases ago but mostly my experience is with first Kickstarter Bones.

My experience has been the same as what's reported. Paint goes on fine after the same short prep work of taking care of mold lines and washing in warm, soapy water. Dry it off and the paint goes on nicely. I'm painting up the ogres first, and wishing I had picked up that armored chieftan! Just another one to get with the retail release.

 

Edit to add: also, I think something that's excited me is that nothing is on a broccoli base that I've noticed so far. That may have been true in Bones 2 as well, but as someone who hasn't yet attempted to base anything, I appreciate that the bases these guys come on is more interesting.

My wave 1, locked in at the end of the pledge manager, made it to about 20 mins from my house yesterday. It will sit there until Tuesday's delivery. I'm pretty sure I've contemplated the risk/reward ratio of breaking into a UPS facility and ultimately decided that I was 3 compatriots short of a strike team. 

I am patient.

Also a lot of the minis have a slight bowl shape to the underside of the built in base so you no longer need to cut off the copyright notice to be able to glue the minis to a base.

The bones fire giants got a face lift and some growth hormones this kickstarter. I had a plan to make the old fire giant queen the teenage daughter of the new queen. Here is a shot of the size difference.

I went and picked up my box from my parents' house this morning. :wub:

I ordered 2 Ma'al Drakars and wouldn't have been upset if I wouldn't have gotten a retail box....buuuuut I'm happy that I did get one! :bday:

 

Mostly, I wanted to say that I am VERY impressed with the new Bones material! Things aren't as bendy and the details are WAY more crisp. As someone who is solely a painter and not a gamer, I'm really, really thrilled with this level up in Bones quality. I see a lot less boiling and frustration in my future and I'm really looking forward to getting some of these smaller figures painted up rather than just considering them practice figures or conversion fodder. Thank you, Reaper!

Thank you, that's excellent information, and just what I was hoping to hear.

I thought I should take a couple of quick pics of my Bones 3 haul before I get them all cataloged and organized.

 

Here's everything in all its glory:

I'm waiting to see if I can exchange this weird orange one. It seems a bit out of scale and it pounced on my stomach at 6:30 this morning...

Hourly update, 22 orders were processed between 9AM-11AM CDT. A total of 1844 wave 2 orders have been shipped/processed so far. A total of 22 orders have been processed today.


High-end estimates of 1965 total Wave 2 orders leaves about 123 orders left to process.

Per @ladystorm, additional orders and restocks may be run throughout the weekend, but are not required.

Is that orange figure from one of the manufacturers approved for the melt table?

 

Because I think it might weigh enough to get some pretty good trade-in value.

Mine is sitting in the Austin facility. We would be doing them a favor... reducing their deliveries by 1 saving Gas and all that... Heck they should thank us for breaking into warehouse!!!!!... wait you are in Ohio..... nevermind, nothing to see here

@Joe Wells remember. while they do read all the emails, there is going to be a final update concerning what to do with missing/broken/wrong orders. I think they mostly want us to wait for that.

I would appreciate it if people would wait.  Get the update, send the information in the format required, and then I can process them.

 

I'm handling all the where is my stuff emails first.  Missing piece emails are being filed.

 

and the repeated emails that you haven't helped me yet, or I also found this thing or now I'm sending pictures, or how about now? really really are just clogging the box and slowing down the process for Everyone.

Hourly update, 7 orders were processed between 11AM-12PM CDT. A total of 1851 wave 2 orders have been shipped/processed so far. A total of 29 orders have been processed for today.


High-end estimates of 1965 total Wave 2 orders leaves about 116 orders left to process. I do suspect there may be more than that, since the most recent verified lock-in pledge date was still in October 2016.

I love the idea of using the old Bones 1 giants as juveniles of the new ones. Following in their parents' footsteps.

 

As said, I notice the absence of broccoli bases on the giants too compared to the original models.

Well, except for the big orange one.  I imagine that model resists organization...

Ladystorm told me I'm not allowed to sing anymore. But when I'm far enough away from her I do lead the others in a quick rendition of Crazy Train

My goal for today is to hit 1k before 5:00 Central. So in about 90 minutes, give or take. We'll see

<_<

Speaking as someone who is spending the weekend in close proximity to ReaperBryan at PaizoCon, I'm giving a +1, +2, + 3 to Ladystorms sentiment.

Just because the restaurant is playing "The Safety Dance" , it does NOT mean you have to dance and sing along. :blink:

I found it really weird to see Ma'al on the evilbay for more than 400 Euros...

Really????

 

If I would be a potential buyer, I would wait till it hits retail.

This was the Bones version, mind you!

 

I doubt anyone will fall for this.

      From the Facebook announcement:
       
      "The ritual has started, and there’s no stopping it now. The only hope for the Investigators…and the rest of the world for that matter, is to disrupt it just enough so that when the Elder One arrives, it will be vulnerable for a split second. Just long enough to kill it!
      They’ll get their chance when Cthulhu: Death May Die comes to Kickstarter on July 10 at 3 PM EST. The new game from CMON and Guillotine Games combines the creative talents of Eric M. Lang and Rob Daviau. Stay tuned as we reveal more about the Investigators risking their lives and the unspeakable horrors they will face off against."

      Overview Earthworm Jim has been a beloved character in video games since his launch in 1994, but due to the limitations of cartridge space, his epic story was never properly told. I'm not only the creator of Earthworm Jim, but I've spent the last 20 years making 18 graphic novels! EARTHWORM JIM is about the world's most unlikely hero... a worm! The evil Queen of Insectica has a super-suit invented that is capable of altering the universe when it is stolen by her ugly sister, Princess What's-Her-Name... Earthworm Jim... from the creator of Earthworm Jim!
      My name is Doug TenNapel and I created Earthworm Jim 26 years ago. Though "EWJ" appeared in award winning video games, an animated series and a toy line, his epic story has yet to be told! We all know the character, but none of us know the story. This deficit in the universe ends NOW!
      (P.S. Do sign up for the Earthworm Jim Comic mailing list! http://earthwormjimcomic.com/ )

      For the first time in 27 years I am crafting an epic graphic novel worthy of the true fans of Earthworm Jim in a multi-book set! Let's launch the cow!
                        

      My last Indiegogo campaign was for a comic book called Bigfoot Bill and my backers blew me away by providing $196k in funding! Together, we were able to make a hard bound, giant book with over-the-top gold-leafing and embossing on the cover. With your help, we can make Earthworm Jim: LAUNCH THE COW a beautiful volume that is a work of art unto itself. It goes on the coffee table, not some box of wrinkled, floppy comics in the basement. This story will be a sprawling love letter to the fans of Earthworm Jim!


      YOU are my Plan A. There is no other plan!
      Making a big, beautiful book requires a lot of funding. Paper costs go up every year, and I only use top quality end sheets, cover stock and print work. It's made in America in my state so I can oversee every step of production. 

      The book will start as a handsome hardbound edition, oversized at 9" x 12" and 160 pages long! It documents the origins of the super suit and how it got to earth to make our favorite hero. You'll see some familiar characters ripped straight out of the video game like: Peter Puppy, Princess What's-Her-Name, Psycrow, the hideous Professor Monkey for a Head, Queen Slug-for-a-Butt and Evil the Cat!

      The Making Of EARTHWORM JIM Book!
      Your Earthworm Jim: Launch the Cow comic is lonely and needs a companion...

      The "Making Of The Earthworm Jim Book" is a perfect companion to the comic bookk. It will also be hardbound, 9" x 12" and starts at 64 pages (But I KNOW we can do a lot better than that!). It has a comprehensive backstory on all of the main characters and villains. I think it's tacky to have too much expository dialogue on everyone's past, so it's better to unfurl that in this book. I give you the why behind the entire Earthworm Jim universe... and yes, I'm building a universe!

      I recently had a reunion with the whole Earthworm Jim game team and I got to interview everyone. We talked about how Earthworm Jim came to be and I will document that many close calls and freak accidents that had to fall into place for it to happen. There will be team bios, and a catch up on what everyone has been doing over the last 25 years since we got together.

      The Shiny Team section of the book has portraits of the talented artists, programmers and musician and the photos were even taken by David Perry the Earthworm Jim programmer!

      I'll show every step of the comic book's production, from raw ideas on the white board to printing every notecard I used in breaking down the story. You'll see the raw pencilled pages, inked pages with washes applied and I even scan my script pages that are covered in pencil re-writes!

      Who remembers this cartridge and packaging art by Mike Koelsch...?



      I've asked Mike Koelsch to paint a new "90s-style EWJ cover" for the Making Of book! Koelsch will give a step-by-step story on how he illustrated EWJ including a sneak peek into his studio madness. (Check out Koelsch's website here: http://www.sporkunltd.com/) He has also allowed me to make prints of the cover and the original is available on our highest backer tier. I'll put it in a beautiful frame with matting so it's ready to hang in your home!
      Here's Mike giving step by step progress on the cover:



      I've got perks where you can own the original comic pages, the book covers and enjoy frame-worthy prints plus a perk where I will draw you an original signed Earthworm Jim head-sketch in your book!




      3 ART PRINTS!
      I hope to make three collectable prints with each Earthworm Jim book by guest artists, and these are the first three. Note: They will only be offered on this campaign and won't be offered on any future campaigns. The first is by Mike Koelsch, the artist who did all of the cartridge and packaging illustrations for Earthworm Jim 1 and 2. The next two are from the CreatureBox boys Greg and Dave!


      Click here to learn more about CreatureBox: http://creaturebox.com/

      FUND THE TEAM:
      The funds will go to a costly print run, my letterer Eric Weathers, flatter Radka Kavalcova, my colorist Katherine Garner, book designer Joe Potter and shipping fees. Here's a sampling of the team's test pages so far:



      The Art of Bookmaking
      I've spent years making graphic novels and Earthworm Jim is probably my most well-known creation, yet his story hasn't been told. This is my chance to do the best job I can to entertain you and your backing will make this book a fantastic work of art.



      I don't see comics as disposable rags made to read once then toss aside. I spend a lot of time writing and story and crafting every page and merely reading some thin floppy or a PDF isn't the experience I'm going for. This book will be something you can enjoy for a lifetime, it's literature, not pop-garbage and I want to stand on the tip-toes of my ability to reach for the highest possible craft I can accomplish! 

      My track record in this arena has few peers. I Kickstarted two sketchbook archives where we managed leather covers, gold gilded edges and the best printing money can buy. These are one-of-a-kind collector's items that are not available in stores. The book honors the backers who made them happen. I write for the most diverse audience imaginable, and the backers constantly tell me, "I got more than I paid for!" 

      If you look at my books that are made outside of Indiegogo, you'll see that they don't have the over-the-top printing production I can pull off through crowd funding. Only through Indiegogo will you find foil-stamped gold cover art, UV gloss coatings, embossing and de-bossing! I hope to explore new printing techniques that make these hard bound books the kind of items you show off to your friends with a durability that ensures a great re-read for the rest of your life!


      For more on the Bigfoot Bill campaign click here: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/doug-tennapel-s-bigfoot-bill-graphic-novel/x/838702#/
      I spend a lot of time putting these books together, it's time away from my family and I've dedicated my art philosophy and have the highest commitment to being transparent to my backers, include them in every step of the process and take the moral contract between backer & creator seriously.

      Why Beale Air Force Base?
      When Crew Chief Matt Konar was allowed to choose any artist to paint the nose art on his KC135 refueling plane he wanted something like his favorite character Earthworm Jim! A friend put us in contact, and I designed the artwork for the plane and attended the commissioning ceremony on May 5th. The whole base came out and I felt so humbled to get to help America's finest that I wanted to do something special for those folks and give YOU that same feeling. 



      By backing the Beale Air Force tier, I hope to send one copy of the Earthworm Jim comic to all 800 people on that base just in time for Christmas! As a thank you, I will send you a signed book!

      Here's a sample page from the comic:

      It seems like a great idea, but I’m wondering if there might be some unforeseen drawbacks.

      About
      Hello everyone,
      A warm welcome to our latest Kickstarter called Cyber Belles!
      These fairies have survived the eons and have adapted to modern times. We've placed them in an apocalyptic setting where mankind has all but destroyed the world and... itself! The fairies have evolved and have adjusted to the needs necessary to survive in this dangerous place! 
      The campaign will help us fund the production of three 75mm miniatures and maybe something else... which is small... and cute... ;) 
      The campaign is about three 75mm scale miniatures. Red Belle, Blue Belle and Yellow Belle.
      The artwork
      Red Belle Blue Belle Yellow Belle Note: the sculpts are a little bit different from the artwork shown. We mostly chose to do this to make them a little bit more realistic and also to make sure that the casting were strong enough in the end.
      The artwork
      Red Belle 
       Blue Belle 
       Yellow Belle
