Reaper Bones 3: Post-Kickstarter Discussion

Recommended Posts

Paint day with bother daughter and wife!  The daughter finished up her pillars from Graveyard expansion and then started on one of the pumpkin headed guys.  The wife chose the wrath(?) from that expansion and the plants from Stoneskull.  she did not finish before it was time to make dinner so will need to get updated pics later.  I finished the casket with shield and sword on it and started on the carrion worm.  I went with green liner instead of brown and it looks cool as is but applied some purple to it as a start to see how it would look.  Fun times and a great job by both of them.

I don't think Kythrixis would fit on a Large base, he/she is at least Huge. Comparing the figure to Huge figures from the D&D prepaints, he definitely fits in better with them than with Larges. I think you might be hard pressed to call him Gargantuan, though.

I'm also interested on dragon base sizes, when the dust settles. But I'm sure someone here has all of them and can provide a helpful size comparison.

Thanks for these images. That Iron Golem is bigger than expected, but the behir looks smaller than anticipated. 

Large creatures occupy a 2" space, while huge use a 3" base. Truth be told, I was hoping he'd work on a 4" base as a gargantuan dragon, but it was hard to tell in the previews. His price point was close enough to other big dragons like Narthrax, so I assumed he'd be comparable in size. 

Here is the pathfinder large red, huge red and gargantuan blue. The new dragons are pretty big.

Holy cow! You guys are killing it! I especially like the wraith and the pillars. Pumpkin head is also turning out pretty cool.

So Kyphrixes will definitely fir on a 3 inch base. It would look a bit small on a 4 inch. Marthrangul is at least 4 inch. But I may get a GW knight titan oval base for him. Lavarath could fit on a 2 inch if you don't attach the bones base, 3 inch if you shave down the base slightly, though I May put her on a 4 inch since she was going to be the center piece/leader of an all girl shield maiden army, but looks a bit small compared to the ice bears.

 

I didn't get most of the dragons as the looked too large to get any use out of in my pathfinder game. I did not thing Marth was going to be that big... Now She has moved to being a rival for my Big bad Blue dragon queen in my game.

Kyphrixis looks to be almost as big as Narthrax, much larger than the Pathfinder Huge Red, and the base look like it might be just a bit bigger than a 3" base on its own. Cool. I'll probably use it as a gargantuan, then. Was already going to make it a white, so if it's a bit smaller than the gargantuan red, that's not the end of the world.

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:

 

But:  Cause your friends don't dance and if they don't dance,
Well they're no friends of mine.

I'm looking at my order, and wondering why I got I got three pieces of paint set b.

 

It doesn't contain anything I believe I'll use in those numbers. Neither of the dragons adjacent to that to that item in the listings are things I'd want multiples of.

I picked up my massive crate of miniatures at the border today, and managed a cursory look through the contents before I had to head outside to get some work done before it started raining.  Xanadu!  I'd actually forgotten just how much I'd pledged for - sorting through it all is going to take me a while.

The crusaders are a great looking group, I like that they share an emblem with Sir Forscale. I hadn't really noticed that when I ordered them.

 

   That emblem is the faction symbol of the Crusaders faction, from the Warlord game... Long before he was "Sir Forscale", "Garrick the Bold", or even "Good Human Warrior", he was just another grunt in the army - the metal version of Sir Forscale has been available as part of the 06107: Templar Knights Crusaders Grunt nine-pack since 2007...

 FTFY

 

   I'm going to have to make a concerted effort this week to reorganize my stuff more efficiently - everything: paints, minis, bitz, basing materials, bases, storage - since I've got some metal coming in soon as well as the little bit I got from the Bones KS, and most of the KS tab went toward the two paint sets so that's quite a few more bottles to find space for...

Canadian, Wave 3. Waiting on my email. I guess it is safe to say I am in the group that is not receiving an email. I suppose that should mean that mine might be here really soon with no notification, since I am almost a stone's throw outside Calgary.

 

EeeeeeeEEE it's probably still coming!

I have been very tempted to buy his brothers and make a Forscale platoon.

El Dorado is a wildly underrated film. 

The larger the object in question is the funnier a Sir Forscale looks next to it

I use Sir Forscale for all my scale needs, now. He has found his way into almost all of the pics I have taken of Kickstarters arriving from other companies...even if not gaming related.

oh the agony!  My package is IN my town, cruelly trapped at the local UPS hub... which is closed today so I can't go pick it up.  Sigh.  Must...practice...patience.

Say it again, Corporea: Patience is a virtue.

Not right now it isn't!!!

I was at a Con this weekend and my Bones were due to arrive Friday. I made arrangements for someone to get them off my doorstep. I had to cancel that arrangement when I received an email in the late afternoon that it wouldn't arrive until Tuesday :(

      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.

      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:

      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  
       (see more angles at the bottom!)
