Reaper Bones 3: Post-Kickstarter Discussion


Recommended Posts

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.

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.

      Hi, we're Crow Land Publishing, and here's our first book, Wickerpunk. A supplement book for Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition, with application for all fantasy and horror games, such as Pathfinder, Call Of Cthulhu and even superhero games, like Champions. It will be 275 pages.
      Folk horror – horror and supernatural fiction that relies on elements of the past, folklore, superstition, the dreadful majesty of nature, the darkest urges of old religion. And old gods. Where the landscape itself is a symbol of fear and dark majesty. 

Heroic fantasy – a dream of blades and magic, a dream of defiance of the dark powers of the world, where we can be our truest ideals of our self. 

And when these genres collide – we have Wickerpunk.  A genre in which the ancient and natural world of the Wyld meets the imperialist world of Industry.
      If you like film such as Gawain and the Green Knight, Dragonslayer and The VVitch, you'll like our book.
      If you like games such as Maiden of Sker, Greedfall, and Hellblade, you’ll like our book. 

If you like anime such as Princess Mononoke, The Ancient Magus’ Bride and Faery Gone, you’ll like our book.
      If you like TV shows such as The Witcher, Game of Thrones, (especially the White Walkers stuff!) and the classic 1980s Robin of Sherwood, you’ll like our book. 
      If you like novels such as The Mists of Avalon, The Dark Is Rising and The Broken Sword, you’ll like our book. 
      Wickerpunk is a sourcebook that instructs GMs and players alike on what wickerpunk looks like in a game of D&D or any fantasy roleplaying game.

      We have a small and short campaign live at Kickstarter.
      As the clunky title suggests, It's about a big virus, his small buddy and some masked adventurers.
       
      The all in level is 50 USD (60 Canadian) + postage
       
      Thanks for having a look!

      I barely received my last campaign pledge from Midlam that already it has something that caught my interest.
       
      Sisters of the Kraken Cult. The female counterparts of the previous "Onslaught of the Cult of the Kraken Lord" and "Cultists of the Kraken Lord". (I now have some regret of not getting it)
       

       
      What's also interesting is the optional add-on of fish folk.

       
      Brinewind is going to have some interesting neighbors.

      Story
      After the estate of one Fomo Barrowblight (who many moons ago, and with heavily laden bags, had said he was just off for a morning walk, never to return) was sold at auction, there came to light a strange scroll that appeared to be a map of the final resting place of a lost tribe of halflings.  These cousins lived down in the scorching Southlands, amidst endless dunes that had buried whole cities and civilisations.
      The newly elected (and so still very enthusiastic) Halfling Town Council had organised an expedition to make contact with their fellow halflings, with the aim of swapping some stories and recipes, and who knows, perhaps even coming back with some interesting new cakes.
      And, after many great perils and travails, the expedition found itself in a mysterious location known as 'The Valley of the Things'.  Here, recipes in strange hieroglyphs were marked on tomb walls,  guarded jealously by High Priests and long mummified pastry chefs.  
      The expedition takes time to assuage the fears of the High Priests that they are here to steal the sacred recipes and make formal diplomatic relations.  But Fomo Barrowblight and another mysterious figure seem intent on stealing the recipe to the sacred pie and have already gleaned some of the ingredients...
      To the Mummy's Tomb!
      Introducing a series of  Eight Fantasy Miniatures in 28mm scale from a halfling expedition to the burial grounds of their cousins, in the desert southlands. 
        Halfling Town Council Five
      The latest elected Halfling Town Council, has been responsible for launching the expedition to the distant Southlands, as always, it is made up of eight different townsfolk from all walks of life.
       
       
       
      I've already pledged for the whole set, why haven't you?

      Story
      Echoes of Camelot: Arthurian Legends is a project that will expand our 75mm resin miniature range with new and exciting models based on the Matter of Britan, particularly around the figure of King Arthur and his Knights. We have many cool surprises prepared should you help us bring this dream to life.
      These miniatures have been sculpted and painted here at the Big Child Creatives studio with the collaboration of some of the most talented miniature artists out there. And what is more, they will be manufactured by our own talented team of resin casting experts. This allows us to monitor the process closely to ensure the best quality in the market and a timely delivery.
      We have learned a lot from our previous campaigns, and we want to put all this experience to good use, repeating everything we did right, improving upon it, and correcting our past mistakes. We invite you to join us in this journey of discovery throughout the Matter of Britain and its amazing cast of unique characters.
      This campaign is a journey of discovery, full of surprises such as custom bits to make your miniatures even more striking than they already are. Some of these kits will be Kickstarter exclusive, so those of you who choose to support us will be able to proudly show it through unique miniatures, even more full of life and character than our regular releases.
