Bonehendge!

Are those colored cultists part of some other game? Also, is that cool piece in the middle Bones or from something else?

 

I'm really wishing I'd gotten Bonehenge, it's not quite as big as I was afraid it would be, plus it looks like the standing stones are separate from the base, so storage won't be as much of an issue. Retail it is! ^_^

 

Huzzah!

That picture is Bonehenge with Sir Forscale, plus ten Cthulhu Wars cultists (one of each of the eight factions plus the Collector's maroon and the neutral faction gray) and an upgraded gate from Cthulhu Wars.

Couldn't get T'Raukzul to stay dry fitted. He's impressive.  Any one else have a spongey head for him?

Not as spongey as Kaladrax, but yeah.

 

Also, I couldn't get mine to stay even with poster tac.

So are we still able to order the kick starter?  Until I came back to the hobby I never heard of it. And the page showing it ended in 2015 throws me for a loop. I'm trying another kick starter but interest in the bones one.

No. The pledge manager for this project was closed months ago and fulfillment will be basically done in a couple of weeks or so.

 

You should be able to start buying the Bones 3 figures at retail soon after fulfillment (though some won't hit retail for a year or so), and Bones 4 (the next Bones kickstarter project) has been announced as coming soon, though without any firm dates.

ReaperBryan and/or LadyStorm can give you an official answer, but I believe the expectation is that there will be no new signups. However, most of these should be hitting retail in the coming months! The boxes we received had a sheet with the schedule on it; Nakos scanned and posted it. I or someone else can dig it up for you shortly.

 

There are also a number of other kickstarters that are expecting to happen in the near future; Conan, Rise of Monsters is one, and I believe we're also expecting Bones 4 to launch on kickstarter soon TM, probably sometime this summer. So if you can just hang on a couple of months, you may have some more exciting options!

 

Ninja'd by Doug, but here's the link to Nakos's scans:

The Kickstarter is done and over with sorry to say but there is no way for you to get in on it.  We are now at the fulfillment stage.  When that is complete you will start to see these models appear in the Reaper store for purchase.  You will have to wait for retail.  It will also likely take about a year for all of them to be released as Reaper does monthly releases instead of doing the entire list.   

 

I will say that a new KS is also likely to start shortly after fulfilment.  You may be able to get in on that.  However, it will be a whole array of new models.

As many Canadians who said that they didn't get charged duties, I was also one who was still super worried that I would get charged anyways. Didn't happen though, they just dropped off the box at my door without a second thought.

 

This is great news for folks that got shipped via hubs. Really ace of Reaper to help costs come down like that.

Thanks for the info, wish I had known about this when it was going on. Hoping on joining in on the next one. 

 

If you register a new account at reapermini.com (which is the website for the Reaper store and separate from the forums), then click on "Account details" in the top right corner, you will see a check box at the bottom that says "Email me notifications of announcements, releases, and features." If you check that box, you will receive Reaper's newsletter, which should announce when the Bones 4 Kickstarter will be starting.

 

The miniatures in the Bones 3 KS, as others have stated, will gradually become available for purchase at retail over the next several months. There is no way to buy into the Bones 3 KS project through either Reaper or Kickstarter.

 

Huzzah!

Back row: Dhole, Goremaw, Dagon, Dagon, Shub, Shub

Front row: Sir Forscale, Ten cultists

 

And a partridge in a pear tree!

 

Bones is putting  Cthulhu Wars to shame and that Bonehenge looks mighty good with cultists.

A few more pictures I suppose.

 

After my friend took all of his dragons that he went in on my order for this is what I'm left with for my haul (roughly 200 minis, including the dissembled ones off to the side in bags):

10.the_haul.jpg

 

Mainly from the Core set and the Stoneskull, with a few others thrown in (Air Elementals, Goremaw, etc).

 

Also holy CRAP is Goremaw ever larger than I thought it was going to be! I thought it was going to be like the size of a Purple Worm or something!

Spoiler

4.large.jpg

 

Also I think one of my unexpected favorites so far is the "Invisible Heroes". They look so cool!

Spoiler

Finally, is anyone else that's gotten their bones having problems with a few of them in terms of strength quality? I've done Bones I, Bones II and now Bones III, but this is the first time I've run into this issue. The wings on my Solar Angel are almost droopy, same with his sword, even after heat treating like I've done with dozens of other bones, it feels... weaker than other Bones material. His wings kinda flap like rubber almost.

In a similar situation my Ms Bones, her right wrist is SUPER flimsy, wiggling the sword a little bit legit makes it fell like its just going to fall off.

 

9.the_boneses.jpg

 

I have somewhere near like 500 bones now, and haven't seen this before? Has anyone else? Or are these defects in these two particular models? I do see a small rip like seam in Ms Bones arm.

 

I haven't looked at every single mini in super detail yet, but I haven't come across any other obvious details of this "weak bones". I might shoot off an email to Reaper in a few weeks once things settle down to get their suggestion on this.

 

Otherwise this batch is fantastic! I agree with what a lot of the other people are saying, the darker grey bones material is pretty fantastic!

I haven't inspected mine fully. Just played with the large ones. I'll be playing with giants and human size tomorrow.

      Mel Bose – The Terrain Tutor – has been building terrain for almost as long as he can remember. When he was five, Mel built playsets for his little green army men in the corner of the craft store his mother ran. He was often assisted by model railroaders who were regulars at the store and, by the time he saw his first White Dwarf magazine at age 15, Mel was primed for a life of building terrain.
      Mel has traveled the world, as a medic in the army, a physiotherapist, and even a salesman. He has worked with people from all walks of life, and looked at things from many different perspectives. It is this approach that he brings to his successful YouTube channel (The Terrain Tutor, click the image below to check it out). For the last fiveyears, Mel has been able to make a living from sharinghis passion – teaching people everything he knows about building terrain for tabletopwargaming, for hobbyists, clubs, displays, and for dioramas – and it’s that passion and knowledge that he is bringing to this book, TERRAIN ESSENTIALS.
      This Kickstarter campaign is to fund a printed version of the book – TERRAIN ESSENTIALS – a 96+ page book perfect to add to the collection of anyone with an interest in creating excellent tabletop terrain, regardless of purpose or the builder's ability.
      The Content of TERRAIN ESSENTIALS
      Mel has spent many years researching all manner of tools, materials and techniques, as well as experimenting and documenting his process. He’ll be putting it down on paper for the first time, and TERRAIN ESSENTIALS will include: 
      • Theory – From inspiration and research to planning and set design, from colour theory and build types to workflow and longterm project management, this section will help you plan the best terrain for you before you even start building.
      • Materials & Tools – Covering all the most commonly used materials, from basic craft and DIY to specialist modeling materials – including how and where to use them in terrain making – along with an in-depth guide to the essential simple, professional, and custom tools specific to making terrain, this section is all about making sure you have the right tool and right material for the job!
      • Core Techniques – From cutting bases to sealing your finished terrain and a whole host of techniques in-between, this section will ensure you have a solid understanding of the core skills and techniques used across the spectrum of terrain building. Covering the essentials, from basics like cutting and gluing, to advanced washes, sealing techniques and combating warping, this section will not only give you the information and confidence to use these techniques but also troubleshoot them.
      • Base, Texture, and Paint – Good terrain starts with a good foundation and this section provides in-depth coverage of basing, laying down the ground, realistic texturing techniques, and a range of earth tone painting guides. From cheap and easy basing materials to perfect pigments, you will have the information you need to make sure all of your projects start with a solid, realistic foundation.
      • Grasses and Trees – This section is all about the greenery, from laying down beautiful and durable grasslands and pastures, to tufts, flowers, shrubs, bushes and hedgerows. As well as tackling the small stuff, this section will go into creating a range of trees; everything from armatures, to bark textures, painting and finally creating awesome looking foliage for your trees.
      • Hills and Rocks – As the most common feature on gaming tables, this section covers those rocks, slopes, hills, and cliffs. We look at everything from a number of different construction techniques to maximising playability without sacrificing realism, realistic painting guides, and more advanced techniques for modular and large feature hills and cliffs. 
      • Buildings and Ruins – Buildings and ruins can be mini-projects in their own right, so this section breaks it all down and takes you step-by-step through building, painting and fine detailing for buildings from our history, or a dystopian, gothic, far-flung future. Covering multiple techniques for everything from the foundations to the roofs, this section will have you making the best buildings for your urban combat.
      • Water and Snow – Often seen as the more challenging aspects of terrain making, this section will demystify water and snow pieces, giving you a range of techniques, core colour theory, and guides to the most common pieces like ponds, modular rivers, and snowy terrain.
      • Terrain Kits – As kits, prints, and casts become more prevalent in tabletop gaming, this section not only equips you with the key knowledge to make putting your kit together problem free. But it’s not only about building kits; we will also take you through customising and tying your kits to your existing terrain collection, giving you what you need to turn each kit into a unique terrain piece.
      • Mel’s Top Tips – Throughout the previous sections, Mel will be giving his top tips, tricks and fixes, making sure you learn from his mistakes so your builds go as smoothly as possible.
      We are planning to cover each of these chapters in as much detail as possible, to give you as much information as we can. We have a number of stretch goals planned that will help us provide more in-depth knowledge on each of the techniques used and sample builds shown in the book. 
      Why create a book?
      It has been quite a while since there was a great “Introduction to Terrain Building” type of book on the market, so after five years of helping the community build their terrain on Youtube, it seemed right for Mel to be the one to do it. On The Terrain Tutor YouTube channel, Mel presents a lot of great ideas, techniques, materials, and tools in a handy, episodic fashion, but we know that not everyone learns in the same way. The written word (particularly when accompanied by great photographs) can help many terrain builders connect with the material covered in Mel’s videos. Helping others enjoy their hobby is one of the key drivers behind The Terrain Tutor, and Mel finds there’s certainly a lot of job satisfaction when helping others be happy is your living.
      Mel is partnering with Dave Taylor, of Dave Taylor Miniatures, to bring this book to life. Dave has been involved in tabletop miniatures wargaming for almost 30 years, has worked in "the business" for 25 years, and has known Mel for a decade. Dave recently delivered his own book aimed at helping wargamers complete more of their wargaming projects more often – Armies & Legions & Hordes – which he successfully funded here on Kickstarter last year. Dave is running this campaign, and will be coordinating the layout, editing, publishing, and distribution of TERRAIN ESSENTIALS.
      Of course, this campaign is also a bit of an experiment. If things go well, we may look into a series of more detailed books for a future campaigns.

      A small STL KS for 10 CA$. The first stretch goal has already been unlocked. It's a bit over the place (cheesecake, dwarves, grungs), but the models look nice and the price is good.
